As we begin to let go of our egocentric view of life and surrender to a purpose greater than ourselves, inner aspects that had been dormant since our birth start to awaken in us. What awakens are our natural higher connections and sources of guidance. We can’t make the journey in one day, it needs to be gradual as we shift from matter to energy as our balance point. These dreams illustrate the transition as we let go to our higher selves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: And the next dream is that the theme of last night was how to get beyond what locks one out of a deeper meaning and aliveness awakening from within. There was also the reminder that igniting the fire can be hazardous. To awaken this sort of thing can throw things around because manifestation is fairly set.
And so I see this in a dream in which I have to stick my arm into what’s a big kind of chamber. It’s a highly combustible chamber. And I have to create a spark inside of that that then ignites a fuel there. And then once it ignites, I have to pull my arm out.
I’ve come to know by experience that I make the spark three times and then pull my arm out, and if I do that just boom, boom, boom and pull my arm out that it works and I don’t get my arm burned or something because this whole thing just goes “boom” when it lights.
So in the dream image last night, I lit the fire but didn’t get my hand out quick enough. A split second later and I would have lost it completely. As it is, as I pulled it out, you know, as soon as it comes out, I have this huge painful sensation because the heat had hit me inside and it’s almost unbearable as it was. It was that close to being incinerated. I burned the hair off of my arm and barely kept from destroying myself.
The meaning is, is awakening to what is real is like going out on a limb to travel beyond the limitations of the ego senses. What we ignite to make the journey is the essence within, that’s what we awaken or ignite. When that comes alive, there can be a collateral effect upon the reflective outer because manifestation is fairly set. It reflects, but it reflects in kind of a—it’s like a time difference or something.
Although it does appear fairly spontaneous, it’s still reflective. And so as things like this occur from within, it invokes a disturbing aspect upon the way we perceive life because we may have perceived it one way and then, all of a sudden, something changed and now all of a sudden there’s a blow-back effect that is different in terms of the way this is unfolding as a force of nature.
I am using the word nature, or force of nature, in the sense that the awareness flows from the inner whole and the individual nuances surrender to this essence. Because creation is a manifestation that points to the oneness, the inner changes directly impact this state of beingness.
And then, in the last dream, I have the image of a weigh station that is like an office in a town. This is a repeat dream. What I see is, is I need to go and make contact with something that’s like a big, big ranch, but I just can’t go up to the ranch because it has its security and this, that, and the other. But it maintains an office in town, or like a weigh station in town, so it’s too transcendent, or too much in terms of one fell swoop to just go directly to it.
So I have to start—and you know, it’s like having a teacher, you start with the teacher. This office is associated with the workings, you might say, in fact, it is part of the workings; it is the outreach of the workings of this ranch that you just can’t go directly up to. That’s how contact is initially made – and it’s that way in everything, in terms of trying to awaken, you have to go through the teacher.
Well, what’s interesting is to make sure the dream gets it, I go to the weigh station and I suddenly have to wake myself up when I see myself making the statement, at this weigh station, “I hear you identify yourself as the whole,” I’m right at the weigh station. You know, I’m starting straight away because I have to go to this weigh station, which is just kind of a spot there. It’s a necessary part that you have to start with in order to go out to the ranch.
The inner is, meaning the inner inside, is too much for us to directly access, so there’s a means to sort things out. For a human being, that is where the teacher comes in. The teacher points to the greater teacher, which is like this ranch, which is in the beyond of the beyond and unaccessible to us when we first start.
In this image there is a reference point, the teacher being the reference point, that is open, that is available, that also takes into account the condition I am in and brings me forward at a carefully designed pace.
And that’s kind of what you were doing. You had the teacher and then the greater teacher. Well, the only thing is you started this off in a way where you made the deep recognition of a certain depth of seeing things as associated with an aspect of a higher element of the teacher, in other words, the lineage, beyond-the-beyond. That’s how your first and second dream were correlated.
Each person awakens at their own pace and realizes the connection differently. For me, in the dream, I cut right to the chase when I say, “I hear you identify yourself as the whole.” What is interesting about this statement is this is a recognition to a oneness, or a wholeness, being inherent as a memory already imprinted in my being to which I am seeking access. That’s how you read between the lines.
