When someone acts strangely, we often hear the phrase: “He wasn’t himself.” Yet relative to the purpose and potential we are born with, we could say it about the human race: We are not ourselves. And much of that is because we have personalized our experience, making it about “us,” when it’s closer to the truth to realize that we are born in a personalized state and are designed to become more universal every day of our lives. That’s our true self. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: My middle-of-the-night dream seemed to be more about the space I was in. It felt like a large, one-level house, almost in some old style where some rooms could be open and have courtyards and adobe walls, and that sort of thing. And I seem to be moving around at night and there’s someone that occasionally helps me or shows me where to go.
At one point, I go into this large, open area that’s actually a room, but I realize I have to go to the bathroom and there seems to be a toilet in the corner, next to a wall. So I go over, but then when I go to the bathroom that makes a little bit of sound and it wakes somebody up in the adjoining room where I don’t really want them to see me, because these rooms are just all kind of open to each other.
So, then I kind of feel like I have a little bit of dilemma, and now how do I continue around without being seen? How do I move around without being seen because obviously if I’ve woken somebody up in the next room. And it was all nighttime and it was all this shifting around at different levels in some rooms that you would know or didn’t know, or people you knew or didn’t know. It was the main sense of that first dream.
John: What the dream is portraying is that you’re allowing yourself to pay attention to dynamics around you. And in paying attention to those dynamics around you, it causes you to be self-conscious. It causes you to redirect your focus and your attention. It causes the way that you maintain or uphold your space in an environment, it causes you to have to accommodate those sleepy-by, manneristic collective conditions that you’re giving credence to, and find yourself giving credence to, because they are in your environment.
And you are letting go of a deeper connection and linkage that you can find inside and as a note or so, as a quality of caring and conducting yourself, that you can adhere to inside of yourself, that would permeate the entire area, would infuse the entire area, would be invisible in the entire area because it would be a vibration that would penetrate out and soothe everything.
But by paying attention to the manneristics around you, you don’t add anything new to the space that you’re in. Instead, you continue to continue whatever that vibe or that space is. You continue to hang out with it. You continue to even support it.
So you’re not acting as a person who, by your nature of being just in a connection inside of yourself, you’re not acting, and you’re not carrying yourself with the inner power that would then be permeating out and having an effect upon the entire outer surroundings that you’re in, or the container energy of the life of the world of the place that you are. You have instead allowed this other to come in, grab your attention, and compromise your demeanor.
A dream like this is basically saying that there is a—as an attention, a note, a focus, a quality—a way of going about holding onto something that permeates through all that there is, that you could carry and have as you move about in the night of things. But instead, you’re paying attention to the peculiarities, the oddities, the mannerisms, basically, the way something is currently imbalanced, and you’re trying to be careful in terms of how you accommodate that. In other words, you take that into account, you accommodate that, you even accept that, and in accepting that you lose the note yourself.
