In yesterday’s dream, Jeane saw a string with small blocks that caused snags (see Imposing Upon Life). In her next dream, the imagery tried to give her greater clarity about what she was dealing with on an inner level, using the symbolism of a phone, an sharp-eyed bird, and the connection to a good friend. All of these elements come together to show where her disconnection is, and when the connection is lost we can see how everything falls apart – as shown in the final scenes. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So in this next dream, I’m at a resort with another group of people and Dean’s wife, Anna, is there, and I seem to be sitting next to her; and the impression I have is he hasn’t arrived yet. He’s maybe supposed to join us at some later time, and we’re going on a hike through a jungle shortly.
And I’ve kind of put my hand into a purse to feel a cellphone. Maybe we’re going to call Dean later. I’m not sure what that’s about, but some of us go ahead into the jungle and we hike up to an area and then we’re waiting in the jungle for Anna and she doesn’t come, and she doesn’t come, and then I think about calling her. But then I feel the cellphone. The cellphone feels a little wrong, and so I look down and I’ve picked up Anna’s purse, so of course she’s not calling us or coming. She probably thinks her purse is lost so she’s still back there.
So I think about how I have to get the purse to her, so I get up and I move a little apart from the group as I’m going to walk back to where we started from at the hotel. But as I stand up and I’ve just gone a few feet in the jungle, this bird, that’s kind of like I think a kestrel, you know a small hawk of some kind, a small falcon even, I’m not even sure, comes down and gets right up in my face beside me, not in a hostile way. It’s kind of on the ground even, just has its whole body kind of stretched out with its wings pulled partly back like it’s at attention, like when they’re going to dive or something, but kind of has its face right up next to my face.
Well, I find this really kind of peculiar. I think, it’s a bird, it should be up in the tree, flying or something. And I kind of watch it even goes over and it assumes that pose next to a small kitten, or just a young cat that somebody else has that still has that kitten energy. It’s not totally tiny though, and I’m a little concerned about the bird now because the cat is aligned perfectly with the bird in a way. They’re side by side. They’ve even moved forward a few inches. Their heads are next to each other almost like greeting each other, and they both are looking totally alert.
Well, I’m a little concerned about the bird now, even though that’s not a full grown cat. It’s just not quite behaving normally, so I kind of try to get it to inch forward a few more because I want the bird to be able to fly.
And then my attention is distracted and I find myself in the jungle like I want to go back to where Anna was, and then I’m separate from the group and it’s almost like everything’s shifted. I get back to the resort – but this time when I first get into the resort it feels like I’m being pursued. There are two guys that when they spot me start chasing me, and one of them falls behind, but the other seem when I try to lock the door on him the door won’t lock. And I go into one room and the people there feel like they’re from a different era, and they’re even almost partly present and partly ghost-like – so I leave that room.
And then I feel like the guy is still a little bit behind me, and he hasn’t caught up with me, but I want to stay ahead of him. And I even start to go outside and maybe fly through the jungle again to get back to where I was, but I change my mind and I decide to go swimming. Then he seems to fall away, and I’ve gone into a changing room. There’s another woman in there or two women in there that one of them went ahead to use the showers, and I see they have one of these odd bathroom stalls where when you go in the stall, one stall doesn’t have anything in it, and I guess that’s maybe the changing stall. And then you can either go back out and enter the second stall and there’s a toilet there, or you can kind of bend down and actually go through a cutout space to get to the toilet.
And so I go in there to change and then I’m going to use the toilet, but the toilet has disappeared on me, so I realize there must be toilets in the other changing room. I come out to go look for that and I think that’s when I wake up.
John: So you’re inter-phasing things for direct information, because you’ve set the premise that there are certain blocks in the flow, and the thread of unfoldment, that keep one from directly seeing what they need to see.
And you use Anna as an example to help reveal that, because technically you and her basically have the ability to walk around together quite fine. In other words, it’s like you do have a communication connective level that is there, so you’re using Anna as an example where there’s a break, where there is something that is missing in terms of the natural acuity that can be there.
And it has to do with something that you’re holding onto, which is the purse, versus that which enables you to see, or hear, or comprehend – which is the cellphone. And so it’s like that is disjointed in terms of the connection, because basically Anna is you and you are Anna in this dream. And yet then for that to be pulled together, you can’t be taking and sustaining or maintaining yourself with what you’re holding onto. In other words, if you’re going to hold onto something you have to have a sight. In other words, within that should have been something like the cellphone or something in other words so that there was the connective communicative link.
That was the key, that was the symbolism of the bird, is the bird – the quality that needs to take flight – you’re missing a certain characteristic that is represented by the bird. And of course this bird also represents a type of meditation, quality in meditation, or a quality in the meditative state. In your particular case you’ve basically gotten a little discombobulated. It’s not that you cannot ordinarily be like this, but you’ve gotten a little discombobulated. And the discombobulation has been associated with something that is a characteristic, or animal-type energy, that you need to experience, which you described it as being like a falcon, which has to do with a certain sight, and probably a particular quality of how that sight works even.
Something that automatically knows how to come into touch with something, in other words isn’t fooled by things, because then when you take and can be duped or fooled by something, then you can’t seem to, as in the last part of the dream, which really wasn’t important other than it showing how one flops about when they don’t have that sensation. And it was not quite really a flopping about, because it was kind of a figuring out, too. There was an emptiness that was reached, but at the same time that you have an emptiness you also have to have, and be able to have, a presence.
So here’s how that works: There is a kind of groundedness that one has that when you’re grounded you sometimes can’t then take on any additional information because it requires your attention to become overly expansive, and then you space out. And that spacing out means then you can’t find your way, and you can’t tell where the bathroom or something is, and you can actually go into an obliviousness – and that part isn’t good. So there is a type of focus and attention that holds the energetic of something together so that you know where the dynamic is at – in terms of how it is that you’re supposed to perceive and see something. Now the falcon illuminates that, addresses that problem, so that when you bring a particular sight so you can sort something out, and you have it clearcut with that kind of energetic, you also then are able to find where to go to the bathroom, or this, that, or the other, for relief.
This is a dream that is showing you an aspect of a type of focus and attention associated with a certain keenness, that an animalistic characteristic has, it’s important in terms as a tool to letting go of blockages, or characteristics, mannerisms that function as blockages, which causes you to carry something that is personal instead of something which is a sight.
