The tail of an ermine hanging in a field may seem an obscure dream image, but it is actually a huge idea brought down to a very simple form: what the dreamer has access to is only a partial picture. Pieces are missing, even a person is missing. In our development, it is up to us to weave ourselves into the fabric of the whole. Said another way, the whole exists, and we must intertwine ourselves to become a part of it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I was real tired last night and didn’t dream much. The only thing I remember is a fragment of a dream that when I’d woken up that I was looking at a field and I was seeing an ermine, you know like you hang, an ermine tail.

Well, ermine is kind of like a black mink. Well, it’s hanging there in the field, and it was part… I think it was a woman teacher had been missing, almost like stolen you thought, and the mink had disappeared with her. Her husband had reported her stolen.

So I see the mink has showed up now in the field, so I’m going over to track down what had happened to this mink – because I partly believe that maybe the husband, rather than having his mink and woman stolen, had maybe traded them, or given them away, or done something with them. So, I think if I get the mink I can figure out what really happened.

John: Well, only in this case what you have is something that has gotten lost. And what you have is you have an open field, and then that’s hanging, reflecting something that’s able or meant to be.

In other words, it’s an image that the feminine can have in terms of the wholeness and completeness. What a ferret or weasel represents is the taking advantage of an opportunity that comes before you. And so, of course, that’s a little bit of a crude way of saying it, but in this particular case what it is is that it is something that should be naturally realizable, or revealable, and isn’t in this particular dream scenario, and if you are able to bring it through, it then portrays something that’s able or meant to unfold.

So what the dream is kind of saying is that there is a part of your process of sight, that you are still yet to catch up with, that inflects a sight or a knowingness in terms of how something is designed to be in the overall. In other words, the ferret, or the mink or whatever you want to call it, is simply reflecting that in the outer, in other words, that there is still a gap between a potentiality coming through from the inner that then gets reflected into the outer. There’s a gap there that is eventually going to get filled.

And so you’re having a dream showing that there is this gap. In other words, you’re in an overall scenario in which something is meant to exist, but it’s gone, it’s not there as intended, as possible, or as your awareness is capable of taking in, in terms of the innerness of it all then that reflects outwardly.

The theme of the dreaming, of which what you dreamt was a component of it, has to do with being able to recognize and see what is meant to be, what is meant to unfold, what is meant to occur, and to be able to see it in the context of what is called prophecy. In other words, there can be something that can feel wonderful on a sensation level in terms of how something takes place. In other words, you can only go up to a particular point with it, when this other just seems to have all kinds of ways that it can be utilized to enhance an unfoldment.

And so as you catch up with the speed of that, you can catch up with the ideas that are faster that can touch and invigorate things – and that’s a type of mastery. But in order to properly bring it through, you have to see what is intended, or otherwise a wonderful idea can be a wonderful idea and a wonderful sensation, but it can be flat in terms of how it’s received.

And so what the dreaming is intended to do is it is taking your little image in which something has yet to come into focus, it is taking that and saying that the proper focus includes the overallness of everything in life. And when it is like that, then it fits the design of what is able to occur. Just because you can see something that no one else can see, and in the present it can appear to be a wonderful expression and a wonderful portrayal, doesn’t mean that that will stand the test of time.

And so this is a dream that shows you how it is that prophecy is actually unfolding – and we haven’t been paying any attention to it. An example of this, in terms of the dream group, is that I can take and I can describe things and others can’t see it, and they can’t see it because they are still looking at the energy speed of the present. And they’re not able to see how this sequences and incorporates a future unfoldment, an inner coming into outer yet, on this level. And if they aren’t able to relate to that sort of thing, if they don’t note that sort of thing, they just can’t hear it. And they can look at it in terms of its nuances, in terms of their perceptions as they have them externally, reflectively, but they can’t necessarily jump that, fast forward that news reel so to speak, to where it is going. And prophecy involves being able to tell where something is going.

So most of the night was spent on understanding and looking at the nuances of something that is a type of sight, that goes outside of the orientation of the sensation function in the present. That generally helps to enhance the prophetic unfoldment, which has to do with a certain kind of mastery, but a mastery without the prophecy, without the sight of what is going to be in the fullness of time, even though that can be speeded up and can be amazing, it could still fall flat if it somehow or another gets off into a tangential quality, speeded up as it is, and as amazing as it can be, that doesn’t suit or fit the unfoldment over the test of time.

So that’s where a prophecy’s important in terms of when something is brought through, the sense of that in terms of how it fits with everything in life, and is supported by everything in life, and everything in life adds to it in some capacity, that is what enables something to not decompose, or denigrate, or become contaminated for a long, long period of time.

If you’re using the mastery of something and the sight and the speeding up to make something happen, but you’re running over the top of characteristics and qualities and mannerisms that kind of oppose that, or in other words, there’s a darkness that is being fought at the same time, then what you’re doing is laying the foundation for something that will become contaminated over time much more quickly.

They key is to include it all at the very, very beginning, and as you include it all you include the greater sight of everything in life that is taken into account then, that goes beyond what a person per se is inclined to be able to readily access. They access this through the intertwining with everything that exists in life. When you do that, you end up with a wonderful mosaic that has an aliveness that everyone feels because there are no barriers to it to create a veil, or a mood, or a tone to undermine it.

The flow is always available to us, yet it is always moving on. If we lose our connection, it moves on without us. That means we have to realign ourselves and reconnect – to where it has moved to, not to where we last were. That’s the nature of the real reality: it’s constantly evolving forward whether we are with it or not. Can we, as individuals, afford to be left behind? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The next dream points out just how far off one really is in terms of doing this process. I mean, you tend to see yourself as having experiences and certain realizations, and so you’re inclined to think that you’re making headway. But in the next dream it shows that our idea of what the flow and the naturalness is, if we really, really were to denote how it is, we are really way, way off, and that we are constantly blowing it, and blowing it in ways that we can’t make it back up. It’s like there’s just too much in life to be able to make things up where you miss something.

So, in this dream, I’m taking a dance class. To begin with I’m able to kind of limp along, and kind of fake it, because I realize I’m just not getting something. In fact, I am so bad at it that I realize that when I look at others, especially those that seem to be doing just fine, and they can do it effortlessly, I realize that my struggle of not getting it stands out, as far as I could see. It bugs me, it bothers me, but I still have hopes of squeaking through in the class. In other words, if I just keep doing it and whatnot maybe I’ll get my D-minus or something, you know, be passed more or less but, not really have mastered or caught up with anything.

And this is a class that is graded. It counts for two credits at the university I’m at. I hate it, and I’m so sensationally thrown off by it that I skip a class, purposely skip a class, as if, you know, at least I don’t have to subject myself to the misery now – for at least this time. But I didn’t take into account that upon having skipped a class, now I’m really out of it, and there’s no way I can catch up. There’s no way I can really go back.

So the dream ends with me observing the class off to one side, towards the end of the class, and I’m noticing that those who I had admired before, that were able to do things kind of naturally, and fluidly, and effortlessly, have now been put into positions by the teacher in which they direct and even lead others. And so there’s a wonderful flow to it all, in other words, instead of it all just being one awkward collage, that it has a whole quality to it that undulates with different ones able to do other things with the class. It looks really good, in terms of what they are doing.

It’s at that point that I realize that, for me, it is hopeless and that I am going to get an F. I’m wondering if this will keep me from graduating. Usually you have to have a passing grade in everything to graduate. I wake up dreading the fact that I am going to have to make this up, which means take it over, to graduate, something I hate to do because I passed at it the first time.

And the meaning is, the earlier dream set the theme. It indicated I had to adhere to an inner into outer connection as part of the Tariqa, meaning the flow, or the process, or path that I’m on, and in that dream that is what I saw as having unfolded. And I had, as the dream indicated, a certain natural way that I seemed to observe it. And maybe I was even in that dream thinking I was doing better than I was, because in this dream I notice if you fail to stick to, or catch anything, miss something of importance, or when you drop off when things get difficult that that puts you in a process of experiencing and miserableness, on a sensation level, that is equivalent of the vibration of blowing it.

And, in the end, you realize that if you had probably stuck it out you may have gotten by although it wouldn’t have been pretty. So in the end in I notice that those who got it, and found their naturalness, turned out to be very inspirational and directive and added to the whole beauty of the whole process of flow, in terms of themselves and others. I was impressed to see this, and in seeing this realized that the teacher had seen this all along – because when I was blowing it and whatnot I acted like I was able to kind of hide behind the radar screen, but you don’t hide behind anything.

So in the first dream, as hard as it is to find what is natural in the unfoldment in life in the outer world, I am seeing that I have a natural linkage to the understanding that the unfoldment is inner into outer.

In the second dream, I’m unable to take anything for granted, lucky to be barely getting by. The miserableness of the struggle is accentuated. Again, this is a flow of something that you have to catch from within in order to do it, you can’t just memorize certain actions because dancing involves a flow. It may have some set principles that you start with, but then they have to fall into the flow.

In this dream I realize that checking out from a key element of the unfoldment process is something I am unable to make up. In other words, I can’t just suddenly get it by osmosis. In other words, I can’t skip one week or whatever and so I fall away from the process, which means when you fall away you’re going to have to do it again.

Such a dream can’t help but cause me to wonder to what degree is that happening now, and in ways that I am not getting it? The dream is also designed to cause me to wonder what it is in the outer that I am doing which points this out. I say this because when a person is relating to the outer in a way that isn’t working out for them, in terms of an unfoldment, that the outer points back to some inner flow natural awareness that is a bit askew. Like they say, as above so below.

higher-selfMany people are led to understand that the “practice” of religion, or spirituality, is merely a matter of belief, and that the matter ends there. But the universe is in a refinement process – it isn’t finished – and we humans are designed to play a role in that. So it’s not for us just to ascend to a heaven, it’s for us to help bring the higher into the lower, i.e., into life here on the planet. That helps the evolution of things, and provides a true service whereby we are working for the good of the whole, not just ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my first dream I had a peculiar way of dreaming the flow, in which I realize how awkward it is to get from a parking lot up above, which is near where myself and another person keep our belongings, from this point at the top of the hill we are to go about our business each day. So we have to come from up above to down below to go about our business each day.  And then I realize that there is a lot that can go wrong having to take this trek each day, in other words, from up above, to down below.

What I am doing is keeping a car up at the top, which means that when it comes to going down below I can tend to hang back because I always have the car I can take, and others have to be more attentive about that. And I realize there’s something awkward about this because my attention is placed in this kind of waywardness that I’m having, as I’m sitting above. And others are following an attention to get back down.

And when I realize that we need to make our lives simpler in order to maximize the potentiality, I say to this other person who’s there – and he’s volunteering to help others get their belongings together and out of the storage, and whatever that they had brought up with them as they are leaving now for the day and going down – I say that we, too, need to leave now and go down the hill.

So I realize that from now on we need to do something slightly different. There’s something that just doesn’t feel right about hanging back and being the last to leave and whatnot because we have the convenience of a car. And so I’m suggesting that from now on we leave the car in the Craig parking lot, and Craig is kind of like an underclassman dormitory that you stay at when you first go to college, or you’re an underclassman, but we’re not underclassmen anymore. We’re supposedly upperclassmen, but that if we leave the car in the Craig parking lot and take the shuttle up the hill, that this is a flow that is easier.

In other words, when it’s time to go we can just go. So what I am purporting to do differently is to put myself in the position where I just naturally go down like they go down, leave the car each day at the base of the hill, and take the shuttle back and forth. I point out how this is less stressful and makes our life easier when we do it this way. In other words, there’s something awkward or odd when you are having to hang on to a position at the top and not coming naturally back down.

So it’s an interesting image because the meaning of this has to do with that once you make the trek to a particular place where you’re kind of an upperclassman, or reaching a type of consciousness, that you have to take that inner that you have brought into an awareness, because everything is in inner into outer. You just can’t hang out in the inner as a completeness and say that, okay, I’m home free now. This is where I belong. You have to take it down into life. And so if you see yourself as having everything about yourself parked out in the upper, then you’re a little remiss in following the process of inner into outer.

What I wrote as the meaning is that I am adhering to a journey from creation, or manifestation, to the inner realm, or consciousness, where I am finding myself trying to live out my consciousness by going upwards to a point. The problem with this stage, it’s much more likely that we are able to malinger in helping others leave from up there, but we aren’t taking care of, nor are we in, flow ourself with what is the directive of coming back into the outer.

So this is an image that also reflects the Sufi way of living, which is kind of what I just said, in which a person doesn’t leave their consciousness up above. In other words, when you make the journey, or climb the chakras or however that’s described on most spiritual paths, that you bring it back down from above to go into life down below – because that is the need.

And so what this indicates is I have found as part of a long-term frame of reference that I have to adhere to the taking of a connection from the inner, and bringing the connection from the inner into manifestation. In other words, I am giving my light by coming back into creation to touch the light that is trapped in matter. In other words, I’m giving that up for myself, because when I’m up in the inner it’s like I can kind of help others and stuff like that, but actually it feels awkward because I’m remiss, I’m not staying in flow.

Because you have to give in to the world soul what it needs from the above, which is the inner, to awaken it in this plane of existence. So, you give up your light, and do not glow as much, and you come back in this way. So I have come to the realization that upon making the journey by going around and around climbing the chakra so to speak, that I take the information, I reach to the information in kind of like a clarity or light from above, I may not be able to notice it at the time how profound it is because you experience it in a whole other way, and then I’m able to bring it back down – I don’t sit with it – bring it back down into manifestation to help the wholeness here.

I could have stayed above, but that isn’t the process. I am in manifestation at the whim of the creator, so I need to do everything here to awaken manifestation. But you can’t do anything in manifestation without making the journey and addressing the issues that are wayward in yourself in order to develop a kind of consciousness, or sight, and a speeded up realization that goes or climbs the chakras or however it is gets to the higher self, only to find yourself turning around then and coming back down and facing the challenge that has to be faced in the outer.

That’s what it’s about, which is another way of saying that when you do that, you are able to kind of realize God, which is an immenseness that lies outside of your normal capabilities. You’re able to realize that in the imbedded manifestation, instead of aspiring to grasp something transcendent.

Another aspect of this dream, which is interesting, is the dream portrays the feature, an important and interesting feature, of the flow orientation that, when you experience it, it’s different than how you think about it. For example, it is less stressful energetically to ground the energy of the inner by the outer, even though mentally we believe the other way around to be true, in other words, letting go of our conditions in the outer. If we can do that, it leads us to kind of fall into a naturalness of the inner.

That’s how we’d like to believe it. It’s kind of that way, but then it has to be grounded. In other words, you have to get rid of your nuances, and your inhibitions, and your karma, or however they say all of that, and you’re getting rid of it by looking at it, by realizing what it is doing to you to keep you veiled from the inner consciousness. And then when you reach and find that inner consciousness, in order to sustain it or maintain it, it has to be grounded in manifestation. That’s why you have the breath where you go up and get something for a split second on the in-breath, you bring it back down onto the out-breath, and keep going back and forth until you hone it into a oneness.

In the dream I notice that staying in the inner as long as possible, orienting myself to this place, is being more unnatural in the state of coming into manifestation. In other words, you can’t hang out there, coming into manifestation to abide in the imminent consciousness which awakens the light imbedded in matter.
