A Superior Location

63341One of the first things that can be considered about dream images is how they leave you feeling. Another important aspect is, are things happening in a flow, i.e., does what you need to have arrive at the crucial moment? Or, are unfolding events a constant struggle: do you meet resistance at every turn? Then there is the higher-self observer, who doesn’t add personal feelings to the events. It is often our personalized viewpoints that create the resistance found in so many dreams, because it is us talking to us in the images.

Jeane: Well I remember a scene from one dream in which I seem to be, like I’m going to be moving where I sleep that night. Now I’ve gone to check out my sleeping space and it actually seems to be a large bed that another couple, I’ll be sleeping with this couple and they’re gone right now, they have this large bed. But it seems to be a bed that’s sitting in like the middle of a lawn surrounded by kind of invisible plastic walls, or see-through walls, because I can see a neighbor from where I am when I go check out the room.

And so I’m going and I’m just walking around the bed, which is a pretty big bed, and it’s like I go and walk around it and check it out because I want to see where I’m going to be sleeping that night. That’s one scene I remember.

John: That’s an interesting way of breaking up, or seeing something being broken up or changed, anyway, perhaps shifted even. What was your sense of it? Was it good or bad?

Jeane: Sometimes in my dreams I’m kind of neutral, you know, I was just interested, and I noticed that there was a neighbor that could kind of watch. I just found it kind of interesting that you had this bed that was sitting on this green lawn and it was so big. It was several feet high, and it’s more like I was kind of neutral to curious.

John: Well, being able to be that way is probably the challenge. Most people can’t handle change, and to be able to have your life, or to be able to see your life go through changes, to lose certain securities even, and to be able to do that and just look at that in wonderment: that’s an amazing trait to be able to have.

What’s interesting is the bed’s out on the green lawn – and green is symbolic of life – and it’s out in the open. It doesn’t have anything protecting it. It reminds me of the idea of finding your spot, and most people will take and find a spot next to the wall, or try to find a corner or something. 

And the superior spot to find, to be able to hold, the one that takes in the most, is right in the center. If you can sit and take in and be comfortable in that spot, right in the center, that’s the superior location. But who can do that? Not many people can do that. The reason why there aren’t many people that can do that is because they have their defense mechanisms, their self images of who and how they are. And so they need to have some conceptualization in order to feel anchored in, to feel protected.

And so you’ve taken your bed from a place that is comfortable, and you see this bed out in the open, protected by some see-through walls. In other words, it’s like the security of the overall space of things.

What triggers a dream like this, I would suspect, is a sense of your world from a higher-self perspective being subject to some change that’s impending, or some shift inside of you that’s approaching, that you are catching up with.

And when you have this, and when you come to grips with it, there are I guess a number of ways that you could react. One is that you could go through a depression, or a despair, or something about it as if you’re lost and confused, or you can just accept whatever it is, knowing it’s all for the better. And, in this particular case, the image is one that – as viewed from a deeper, inner perspective – is better than a place that’s secure and protected with one’s own conceptualizations.

This is a better place, but not in accordance with the way you would be inclined to think, from a defense orientation, where you have to have things according to some sort of standard or whole.

It’s kind of a tell-all type dream from the standpoint that it shows that you have the wherewithal inside to be subjected to a complete reorientation, and that you can sit back and take it in, you could sit back and observe it and, as far as the dream is saying, be okay about it, or at least neutral towards it. In other words not having a bias one way or another.

So that means you can handle the ups and you can handle the downs. Most people stay within the veil of things because they get caught in either an idea of how they need to be, and when they get caught in an idea of how they need to be then any change has to be viewed in relationship to up or down. And if you don’t have that kind of blanket or jacket that you put on yourself, as an image or demeanor, you’re freer.
