The Negotiation

towercardHere’s a truth we probably don’t want to hear: our inner guidance is going to steer us toward actions we may not want to take. And that’s because we already have our personalized view of how things should be, or how they should play out. But that’s not how the universe works. The universe has Its own view of what is important for us to experience, and we often resist that guidance to our own detriment – thinking we know better!

Jeane: My dreams were a little wispy last night in terms of pulling them out. I remember one dream, I’m working in an office; there’s a woman and a man. I feel like the man’s in charge of the office, and the woman also has a supervisory position, and I’m there.

And it almost feels like we’re working on a day that’s either a Friday and it’s going to be the end of the week, or maybe we’d even come in on a Saturday. You feel like the man would work all the time, but we’re winding things up and getting ready to leave and they’re giving me some things to mail. And I’m paying particular attention to these envelopes I’ve been given to mail – like they’re a little larger envelopes like they have things in them.

I know that one envelope is going to someone I know, and I know it’s important to them that they get it – but they live a long distance away, like if we were on the West Coast they’re probably in New York, or if we’re in New York they’d be in Switzerland, that kind of thing. The package has to go a long way. It includes something including a check that I know is important to them, so they’ve written, the person who’d addressed the manilla envelope, had carefully written something to kind of indicate that it was for the eyes only of the person it was being sent to.

And I’m looking at it to see if even there’s a secondary address so if that person doesn’t… I know they don’t know it’s coming right now so if they’re not there, is there someone else there that could get it if they weren’t? I’m kind of looking to see if there’s even a secondary address on it, and that it is sealed right. It seems to me like it wasn’t sealed right in the top. I’m checking all of that.

And then there’s a second package and I’m trying to make sure that everything that’s in it is fit in it and, as I look at this package, I know that the woman it’s going to is going to be somewhat disappointed because it includes some things in there for her, including a referral to a class where she can get ready to go back to work. And I can already sense that she doesn’t really want to go back to work, so she won’t see the package in the same way as maybe it’s meant to be seen.

It will tell her more about classes and things that she can do to get back to work. It might give her some temporary help, and I’m just contemplating all of that. In a sense it’s almost like energetically I’m trying to reach out in a certain way, and yet I don’t really have any power over any of this. It’s all been decided by the two people above me. I’m just trying to make sure that it gets delivered right, and is there anyway that I can give any assistance with it?

John: Well that’s kind of an interesting dream because what you’re describing is, there is an understanding of how something is meant to unfold that comes through you, and what you have to catch up with is what that means in terms of that coming across. And that there is an approaching level to this whole thing in which it gets quite confusing to you, in which you are inclined to not get it, or to say no, or to have reached a point where you discontinue receiving what it is that you’re able to receive.

In other words, something is decided, that’s meant to come through, and that which is meant to come through it’s your responsibility to bring it through. And, as you bring it through, it opens up something else that’s also meant to be. In other words, this is the precursor to something else. It’s on the level of this something else that there is the problem in terms of being able to accept or receive the second, this other.

It’s almost like you have a three-pronged approach. The first is to recognize the memo of what the orders need to be, so to speak. The second is to bring that through to make that happen, in other words to create the correspondence, or the intertwining, or the connection. And the third is that as that connection is made, it then opens up something additional like a second package.

And it’s the second package upon which there can be confusion, or it can be the way it’s received is going to be awkward, or even not possible. So it’s a dream in which one, the information that you’re meant to catch up with leads to two, the bringing across of something that’s meant to be leads to three, that then evolves into something more. It’s on the level of the evolving of something more that things are gray again.

So what is this something more that has got to evolve? Well, you have to have a sense of it in some fashion. In other words, if there’s a second package somewhere deep, deep, deep down inside of yourself there is something that you’re having trouble with. In other words, you can kind of hear the memo and kind of be on the path. You can bring something through and cause it to be brought across – but that then leads to a second package possibility and therein lies an issue.

And so you should be able to sense and sort out what that is.

Jeane: Well, the second woman was hoping she would get a letter that would maybe allow her to be on disability or something, she wouldn’t have to go back to work, and instead it was about things that she could do so she could go back to work.

John: So that’s the information that you are struggling with: you want it one way, and it has got to be another way in order for you to receive the package. So the first package is no problem, you have all the variables covered, and so that’s let go of.

And then there’s the second package in which there is… in other words, the theme of the dreaming had to do with a type of negotiation. And in the second package you’re back to an aspect of negotiation where you want it to be in a particular way – and so you’re going to be disappointed if there is some variable that’s not in that way – when you have to be receptive to however it is.

You’re okay on the first package. In fact, you went to all kinds of antics to make sure that it was going to be properly received so that wherever things could be at, or wherever you might be at, you’re sure to get it. You did what was necessary and released yourself of that responsibility.

But then that opened up into… you know, it’s almost as if everything evolves to the next. And so the next thing that it evolves to is something in which you have a distinct opinion of how it should be. In other words, in the first it’s just okay when it happens. It’s great, there’s no thought, there are no issues with it. On the second there could possibly be issues because there is an opinion. There’s something that is being held onto.

Everything is always in terms of the setting that we find ourselves in, the overall that we find ourselves in, and in your dream you’ve got that negotiation theme on the second package. That’s what’s interesting about it. In other words, if you could take that out, then you naturally make that next step without having to compromise it in some fashion.
