Here we have a beautiful example of how the images through a series of dreams unfold an inner conversation. Through the four steps of the dream, each one brings Jeane closer to understanding the bigger picture that is trying to be shown. And we can also see how she turns to the masculine and the feminine for different aspects of the unfolding understanding, bringing incremental depth to her inner connections. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: I had a series of dreams that ran together.
It’s nighttime, and it feels like I see the forms of what it looks like as the candidates for the Republican nominee move forward. But I just see it as like forms on the horizon that move forward because it’s night out. They just have different energies in how they move, or some don’t move forward at all.
Then that kind of segues into the next dream…
John: So, so far what you’re doing is you’re catching the thread of what the unfoldment theme of a quality of inner-into-outer is. In other words, you’re looking at the candidates and you’ve developed the sense that one of them has to surge forward, and when it surges forward and stabilizes itself in a front runner position, that something as an energetic will coalesce around that occurrence.
At present there seems to be a lot of vacillating, first back and forth and back and forth, but you’re sitting trying to take a read or get a bearing on what is about to unfold as an expression, as a theme of energy in terms of expression.
Jeane: Now what happens next is the candidates are out over water. It almost feels like the water in a park at the hometown where I grew up, but it’s mostly still night, and then there’s the force on the water, almost like an ocean force, where there’s a storm that’s come up.
Now the storm is such that some people go into the water and they can only be rescued by helicopters. It almost feels like I’m involved in this process, like have I gone out, how much have I got in the water, could I get rescued by the helicopter? But, I mean, it’s more like I’m monitoring because some people wouldn’t even venture out in the form, and some people are going to have to be rescued by the helicopter, and some people seem to have been able to fly right through.
That was my second dream.
John: So what you’re doing now is, after having established kind of an inkling or understanding as to what is going to kind of unfold, the next determination that you’re trying to make is, to what degree the process is conscious and unconscious? Because you have the sense that what’s unfolding is also a kind of superimposed mannerism.
It exists over a setting of water of which people or whatever end up getting caught in whatever the unfoldment turns out to be. They get caught one way or another in kind of unconscious mannerisms and are in need of being rescued.
The deeper meaning of this, the nature of the dreaming last night, had to do with the idea that what is unfolding on an inner level, because of the nature of the senses and the mind and whatnot in an outer context, you have to look at and read behind the scenes of what is unfolding in the outer in order to try to get an inkling of what is astir on the inner.
In other words, the outer reflects the inner. Rarely is it to a point where a person can hold the inner connection. They’re always relegating it, and reflecting it, and creating veils for themselves through their outer dynamic. And so the theme of the dream is to try to backdoor this thing so that one is tying their connection to this whole inner linkage.
So that’s what you are seeking to do with, first of all, discerning what is taking shape, and then secondly trying to focus yourself to what is conscious and what is unconscious in terms of the process.
Jeane: In the next scene it feels like it’s a little more towards daylight, and I’m in the park there at my hometown on the edge of the lake, but I’ve kind of interrupted the whole process because I feel like my mother, who’s been gone, has returned home and I want to talk to her.
So I phone home. And there must be two people there that I don’t know well. They answer the phone and they go to get her and I can hear them. I think it’s a man and either a son or a woman, I don’t know.
And I feel like they’ve gone to get my mother, unless they’ve set down the phone and they’re talking, and they’re forgetting that I can hear them. Then that’s all I remember of that dream except that there’s a shift suddenly.
John: What you’re trying to do now is you have the input of things, in other words, the sight of something in front of you, in which you can see what is unfolding and then you can see the effect that it’s having in general. And so from there you’re trying to take it to a deeper level, in terms of where it’s going, or something, or what the ultimate consequences could be.
In other words, how does this thing get shaped? And that’s where you look to the feminine side again. But at this point, because you’re looking to the feminine side, there’s some sort of mystery that still exists because that side has to be reestablished, or you have to re-find that, or you have to bring it to the fore in order to get a better sense of what is necessary, for shaping purposes, because it’s the feminine that does that, that does the alchemical change.
The first two dreams have created the coming through with the level of sight, and then now you’re looking at how this – you haven’t established yet, but you need to establish what this is going to shape into.
Jeane: Then there’s a shift, and I’m observing an adolescent boy, but he’s more like 19 or so, and I’m at the same park but it’s more daylight now. He’s been given a position now like a park ranger or a lifeguard. I can see it suddenly dawning on him that now when his friends come to party, if they try to drink or things at the beach or get drunk, he’s going to be the one that has to enforce that you can’t do that.
And it’s going to be very tricky because you let people come and enjoy the park, but he’s now going to be part of what enforces that it doesn’t get drunken or out of control.
John: So the whole thing is you’re now defining from what you’ve observed and then located inside yourself how you’re going to carry and conduct yourself based upon what you’ve observed unfolding in the outer. In other words, you found the element inside of yourself to use as a tuning fork kind of note.
The last shift is how it is that you feel or see yourself as being able to conduct yourself. In other words, you’ve brought back in the feminine principle. So how is it that you’re going to cause something to unfold, or how are you going to conduct this?
What arises is kind of a set of values, because you now have a sense of how something needs to be coordinated in relationship to how one enjoys or appreciates themselves in life. It may have been all confusion before. At one point it was a mystery as to how this sort of thing was going to come together or come out, and where you separate the conscious and the unconscious, and then how you establish and reach the part of yourself that can guide something or help formulate a plan, or a shaping.
And then in the final dream, you’re setting forth how it is that you’re to do this. In other words, your way of doing it.
