We have discussed how we are all the characters in our dreams, and that the masculine and feminine characters are representative of finding inner balances. In this dream, a need to incorporate the natural capabilities of each energetic principle is shown in an image that reveals the deep connection between the inner principles, yet also the way they separate and try to act alone. When that happens, timings are lost and the flow disconnects. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: So, in the next dream, this is an unusual dream in that it starts off with me feeling really comfortable holding a woman in a particular way that is just hard to release or let go of her. In fact, the whole semblance of the dream is getting into this wonderful feeling state that I’m able to experience and it’s so soothing and whatnot that maybe it even could cause you to have a memory loss. And as I was writing this up, I was touching you and whatnot, and it was really soothing. It was hard for me to roll over, and whatnot, when I finally had to.
And the woman I am with is scheduled to have a baby in one half hour. We need to cross a large lake. It’s shaped like a lake, but the water flow isn’t, and we need to swim it and we need to cross this to get to where she’s to have her baby, which is on the other side.
I seem to forget about her need to give birth, which means that I have a memory timing problem. You know, I can get into something as a connection or a twining, and not be able then to hold on to a sense of the flow that always needs to be there—a proper understanding of the flow. I’m always driving too fast. I’m always doing this, that, and the other too fast. And so I’m doing the same thing in this dream, and I suggest that we swim across the lake. I figure we can do it in the half hour. She says that this is possible, but she doesn’t think it is a good idea. It is at this moment that I reremember she’s to have a baby. I had forgotten that somehow. I went, “Oh, well we can’t do that.”
So we kind of shift a little bit and now we’re going to take this boat across, this riverboat or something. And she indicates she needs to lose a couple of pounds before she gets to where we’re going. Well I don’t know what that means, because as I look at that counterbalance-wise, and I’m carrying the luggage onto the boat, I have to first of all put it on a scale. And she says, “Don’t put any weight on until I get on.” And so I place the bags on the scale, but the bags don’t weigh themselves. So something that she has to do when she gets on that helps the bags click into place on the scale, and the scale works, and then it weighs the bags, and maybe it’s something like that. When the conditions of things are properly in place, the scale will work.
The meaning is, it seems I am so close to what is important that I somehow get lost in the energetic vibration and I get lost in it in terms of the outer and lose track of the inner need. In terms of the timing, I’m not only not a good gauge of where I am at, in terms of the timing within, or how to apply it most effectively. I tend to become too stiff and heavy in that regard. And that’s kind of like the masculine dilemma or problem. It’s trying to make things appropriate, or balanced, or it has this conceptualization of what is needed, and it can be a bit on the heavy side because it doesn’t really know. It doesn’t catch up with that inner sense that knows when something is just right.
The feminine knows that to experience what is important, a letting go needs to occur. She also knows just what to take and when to make the journey. This is her role or quality that she carries, not that other masculine who had confused the scenario if he had it his way. Not only would he be inclined to do something reckless, because he is prone to forgetfulness in terms of that which is most real, but his timing is off, and he isn’t a good gauge of what is right with regard to how things need to be in terms of the journey or the process.
The reason it is like that is because the feminine aspect is directly associated with manifestation, while the masculine side initiates the flow that the feminine moderates.
