Letting Go - Fiona Jack
Letting Go – Fiona Jack

Subtlety, generally, is not the domain of the brain. Yet it is at very subtle levels that we connect to the flow of life, and then become able to sense when we stray from it. That’s why a spiritual journey takes the whole us, because we need to bring in the aspects of us that operate on subtler levels, such as the intuition and higher instincts. Experiencing life through the lens of our ego makes us a crude tool, in universal terms. We need to quiet ourselves of inner noise to hear our most sensitive guidance. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had trouble with my dreams last night. I even woke up in the middle of the night and had trouble going back to sleep, which is unusual.

I remember one dream, it’s like I was with someone else. I’m not even sure if I was male or female; I might have been male. And we worked together and we were going to go spend the night outside, sleep outside. And we went back and forth for a little while finishing up business, and instead of taking like a phone with us, it’s like we went inside to where there was a phone and we phoned in an order for things that we needed delivered the next day.

And it’s like I was kind of fascinated by the fact that rather than having to go somewhere and get something we could phone and have things delivered. And they seemed to know how to coordinate it. And I was looking at the energy of that – and that’s about all I remember. I’ll have to see if anything else comes back.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night had to do with taking and putting oneself into some position—an energetic position, a demeanor, more than anything—that is something that you think you need to have, or to maintain, or sustain, for the appearances and purposes of your own well-being.

And in this particular dream, it has to do with something about entitlement. Putting yourself into some position where what unfolds is able to happen, a position in which you’re a recipient of that which can unfold.

And some part of you feels like, even though you may not like to see yourself as carrying this part, because you like to maybe perhaps feel yourself as more let go and whatnot, you still have a shadow side of yourself that holds this quality of wanting to be in a sequence, wanting to be part of what unfolds.

That is your particular kind of loudness that keeps you from feeling your heart in a way that you would be able to normally zoom in on it. And it’s like that’s a holdup part of yourself that you haven’t quite dealt with.

The way you deal with something like that is you acknowledge and recognize that you’re in a position where things are happening, for you to have to contend with, as a flow that affects maybe your image of self.

You’re in that position not by anything of your own doing. The fact that you think to some degree that it is your own doing is what keeps you alienated from feeling the heart in a deeper way. But when you realize that you want to let all that go, so that what happens is just a type of emptiness, that’s the ideal.

You have a dream like this in order to be able to see, or to rat on yourself, over the idea that you still hold out for this kind of posturing or positioning. And the degree to which you feel you need that, is the degree to which you still would maintain a viewpoint that has to do with obliterating, in the outer, that part of yourself that gets in the way, or you perceive as getting in the way, or you perceive could be set aside or stepped aside, so that you’re able to experience something more.

You can’t experience that something more if you have to function from the standpoint of positioning yourself, so that you’re in the motif of what takes place, because then you find yourself having to contend with a mood element of all of that rather than a thankfulness and heartfulness. It’s a subtle dream.
