It seems we don’t give our natural systems nearly enough credit. We think we know what is going on in our lives, yet in a greater sense we have no idea. But interestingly, parts of us do know. These dream images describe Jeane making inner connections that begin in a unformed state but, over time, can strengthen and be embodied into life. Do we know such things consciously? Doubtful. But at deeper levels we know – and we can be shown by our dreams. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: Then in this next scenario it feels like I’ve gone inside this building. It feels like an old building, almost like an old castle or something. I feel like there could be forces pursuing me. And I come around a corner and coming down the stairs is this very large, pale, like almost white wolfhound, which has blue eyes, very ephemeral, very pretty dog actually.
I recognized that this is like my dog, but I also recognized that she’s kind of too ephemeral just yet, so it’s like at some point she might be able to protect me or something, but right now I have to shelter, or hide, her a bit because it’s almost like she’s not all incorporated yet, she’s not all solid yet.
So I just see her and note that, but I kind of want to keep her hidden yet because she’s not kind of fully formed yet. That was just a very brief scene.
John: You’re actually closing in on this. I wouldn’t have guessed you would have closed in on it. I would have thought the idea of understanding the in-betweenness would be something that is more of a masculine-quality nature than a feminine-quality nature, although the feminine-quality nature has to experience it because it’s not like it can be done without the experientiality being taken in by the feminine-quality nature. That’s how the inner and the outer come together.
The in-between state is neither feminine nor is it masculine. What you’re describing still isn’t addressing that spot specifically, but it is pointing out that there is an awakening that is just a merging, in that the inner friend is slowly coming into an embodiment, an energetic sense of self.
This is a shift from being chased or thinking that you have some force there that is more than you can handle. This is like a switch now, or a shift, to where instead of it being something like that trying to catch up with you, it is something that is embraceable – but not quite fully yet because it’s still in a formative state.
It’s an energetic that you are able to embody as you go through life. This is given a bad rap by shamans who describe it as your spirit animal or something like that, not that that isn’t true, but that’s leaving things too much in-between. And there’s a way of talking about the in-between and that works with that in-between that is a shamanistic soul.
In a sense that’s like a shamanistic soul and it embodies both inner and outer simultaneously in a spark. However, this is more like something that is like a lightbody taking on. In other words, maybe the feminine way of saying it instead of the masculine way of saying it, in which it just kind of takes on its overallness or presence, its wholeness, in a way that is enlivened in terms of your overall beingness. And what you’re seeing is the energetic of a chase scene has suddenly switched to this sort of thing becoming embodied.
Well, what would happen if the chase scene caught you? Well, it doesn’t ever really catch you. You just are able to finally face it, and facing it is a lot like the image of facing the lion or something of your being that will devour you or something, and yet you somehow have to take a step towards it. It’s a type of power enhanced energetic facing that puts you in touch with your greater overall being – instead of that being too much to handle when you find yourself encumbered by sorting things out with the mind/sense and, therefore, aren’t able to embrace this whole other dimension.
Jeane: In this last scene it’s like we’ve gone into almost like a school where there are meetings going on, like parents and their children have come in, or adolescents have come in for meetings, and the parents are meeting in some rooms.
And I feel like another teacher and I are supposed to meet with some adolescents that have been acting out, but to get adolescents to listen to you it’s almost like you have to prove yourself first. And so it feels like to do that she and I almost feel pursued as we have to climb something.
Now as we’re climbing this, it’s almost like a little cliff that’s in the middle of the room for some reason, I get up near the top. She’s a little ahead of me, and I don’t quite have enough strength to pull myself up the last little way. So what I have to do is go sideways for a moment.
And I actually kick my feet out and I have to trust these branches I step on that actually move. I mean they’re almost like living branches that are like branch hands, almost. And I just have to trust, even though this is kind of a high cliff, putting one or even both feet on them to go sideways to a place that’s a little closer to where she is and then I can get up on top of this.
And it feels like if we do that then, when we go in the room to work with the adolescents, we’ll have a little bit of credibility. Otherwise we wouldn’t have had.
John: The last dream pulls together a one, two, three step evolvement. I don’t remember the first dream, but in the second dream of course it was like instead of being pursued and whatnot, now it is taking shape or form in terms of your overall beingness, in terms of something that is awakened or opening up for you.
And when that awakens then that enables you to relate to other sides of yourself that you can’t, and you wouldn’t, ordinarily be able to relate to. And they’re considered things that you have climbed closer to but, at the same time, they are younger sides or adolescent sides.
But, in this case, the adolescent side of yourself means something that is subtler and, therefore, you can’t be throwing the basic denseness at it because that’s too trite, or too linear. This subtler part takes and feeds from more of a lightbody energy of your being of development.
So what was the first dream again?
Jeane: The first dream was where I went and got something from a neighbor – borrowed it – it was like two little things that you took and maybe it played music or had a message.
John: Right, right. It’s interesting that you point out that you borrowed it. It’s neither borrowed nor owned because it’s all part of you, and then it is also part of everything else in life. But you just don’t know that.
And, to begin with, in the first dream that’s why tools like the dhikr, and meditation, and prayers of protection and all of that that kind of cut down the loudness of the outer enable you to, so to speak, get aligned and catch up with yourself. And in that aligning and getting caught up with yourself you quit the gymnastics of things – trying to run from this, or being pursued by that – and you’re able to suddenly see something, or experience something, emerge.
And that quality that emerges, that presence, that power that kind of slowly starts taking form about your nature is like a lightbody. And it is that which communicates what you’re trying to say. In other words, your words don’t communicate. That is what goes before you, that is what creates.
And so you’re now able to relate to other parts of yourself that ordinarily are too out of reach, or unconscious, or too subtle and too refined and, therefore, lie dormant until you have accessed this deeper conscious acuity of yourself.
So this is a one, two, three dream. It’s an evolving where, like I say, you started out in a kind of awkward position in life where you need to have tools to cope with and, even then, you still have your shadow dynamics and complexes that get in the way – so you have the chase scenes.
But then you overcome that, and you face that, and you become the lion of all of that so to speak. In this case it’s the friend, which is the dog. And then when you’re able to be like that then you are in a balance with yourself in terms of a greater relatability – as opposed to having defense mechanisms and such that keep you from relating to a greater whole.
