We often hear how lottery winners alienate their friends and ultimately are made miserable by their good fortune. In the dream world, gold is a symbol for energy, and a connection to great energetic power. But as we see in this image, it also comes with a warning: the bandits are always waiting. Connecting to higher energies should ultimately make us more human, and more understanding of others – it shouldn’t separate us from others. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In my first dream last night it feels like I’m on a pretty vast plain, and somewhere on this plain where there’s maybe some caverns or something, there’s been an accident and some gold got spilled, mostly gold chains or jewelry of some kind.
Now, if you go down and you find the gold, and you kind of wash it and you pass it through some kind of solution that coats it, then it’s yours. And so I’ve gotten a certain amount of gold this way. Now, someone’s trying to talk me into going back and getting a larger amount that they say is real easy to get because of how it spilled. So I go and I look and he’s right, it’s fairly easy to get.
But I already have some, and I look around and I see some robbers just sitting around that area. They’re not going to do the work of going and doing what you need to do to get the gold, but if you go down and just bring it up they’re going to get you. So I kind of tell the person I don’t think it’s worth it, you know, like the set up.
John: What you’re doing… well, first of all the theme of the dreaming had to do with taking and learning how one can access a certain particular way of seeing themselves that reaches over the top. Now, over the top means to take and go to a point that takes you outside of the natural connection to others.
In other words, the theme of the dreaming was such that a person was enabled to have an experience of what it’s like to be on extremes. Your extreme was realizing that you can play with the gold and that you have a means of finding it, you have a means of retrieving it, but when you do so, you’re doing this kind of in a way that leaves you extricated in terms of how it is that you carry yourself, or perceive yourself, in relationship to others. And that takes you outside of what is important in terms of having the human experience.
In other words, a person who’s here is meant to be able to be relatable to others, not have to be in a condition in which one is fearful of what they can do to you, or take from you, in some manner that affects you. And that sort of thing occurs, that sort of thing takes place, when you do something that puts you in a position in which you’re inclined to play with an energetic that has you seeing yourself as different, as able to be over the top in some capacity.
These traits are spiritual illusion; and you can have the spiritual illusion in life, or out of life. And you will suffer from these spiritual traits in relationship to being able to be grounded in terms of a real life experience that others have. Otherwise, you’ll have a tendency to be over the top.
The underlying theme of this dream is also something that one can take and have an insight about things, you know perception about things, but something is missing if you don’t have a type of heartfulness that’s essential to go along with it because, without that, that leaves you a bit aloof, which is said to be the condition, and is pondered to be the condition, of Solomon who was able to realize all of the wonders of life, but did he have that really in-depth experience that connected him to something beyond all of that, and also part of all of that. He could understand it, and talk about it, and relate to it like he did with the Psalms and stuff like that, but the pundits ponder as to whether or not he really had that true heartfelt quality.
And I know of another person who served a Raj yoga teacher and did a wonderful job, and the Raj yoga teacher joked around how maybe one should just buy him a white house and a white picket fence, the point being that he did wonderful things on behalf of the teacher, but what did he realize? He was in the presence of the teacher all the time, and his attention was consumed on those things, as opposed to realizing a deeper depth inside of himself that’s meant, and is there, and is possible.
So you cycled and circled around the dream in your way, and the fact that there were robbers and whatnot, the big hint of all of that was that you were doing something that went outside of the norm of simple, natural relatability.
The key is to be able to get to a depth to where you can completely connect to where someone else is coming from – not seeing it, but not being able to truly relate to it.
