It is often pointed out that great ideas that are never acted upon are lost to the world. Why? Because they remain energetic potential and are not made real. The same is true for higher energies that we can’t ground into the physical realms. How do we do that? Think of it this way: when we connect to something higher, we can experience it and let it slip away, or we can take it into us and make it part of our life. The things we ground through our repetitive acts become the sum total of who we are. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane:I have another interim dream in which I don’t remember a lot of it. But part of it, I come out of this huge warehouse-type building—there’s several levels to it—into the bright sunlight.
And I feel like right around the corner, there’s a quarry—a gravel pit—but it’s uphill a ways. And I feel like I have to go there and get some gravel and take it down to a lower road. And it feels like you come along and pick up the wheelbarrow to push it ahead of me, and I’m kind of looking at you like, well, I know how to push a wheelbarrow, but you seem to think that you have to push the wheelbarrow.
That was all I remembered of that dream. I’m sure there was more to it, but I didn’t pick up the interim dream as well.
John: So what your dream is indicating is something has risen up, that you have a depth inside of yourself, which hasn’t been lost either. And the gravel is in the depth inside of yourself. It’s down lower. It’s not up. So you have an access up above, but also a connection to a gravel or a rootedness down below.
See, you didn’t know that part of the dream. You didn’t have that information as if that’s kind of a scenario. It’s the first time I’ve seen you dream something in which the scenario seems to be something that I’m aware of, that I haven’t even talked to you about, that you almost incorporate.
And so it’s an image of being up above, or reaching into like an understanding of something in the higher self, and yet still carrying the rootedness within. And having a process or a means, a thread, by which to do that, the wheelbarrow is being guided there. And the place that you’re holding onto is a two-story house.
So you were bringing the treasure down from above. In this case, the treasure is gravel. That’s the opposite image of how it is perceived as a general rule, in terms of an understanding that is reflective in creation.
In creation, you always find gravel down below, and you have to take it usually where you need it, which is usually in some other place. It’s a place that’s usually, you know, at different other elevations. You’re able to do this in a counterclockwise mode. You’re able to go up and down, and down and up. And from the warehouse, where you’re storing it, you’re able to go even lower, go out on the roads.

The world is full of advice on how we should proceed in our lives, and what we should listen to, and what we should think. Yet here is an example of how our unconscious can give us advice about where we are in relationship to a certain life process, and that advice is unbiased – it’s not even a suggestion, it’s just a looking-glass view of what is unfolding. It gives us a chance to see clearly for a moment, and that can be all we need to make the best next step.

Jeane:My first dream, it’s a little hard for me to sort out exactly what the issue was, but it’s like I’ve gone over to a house and it feels like there’s a bunkbed. And I feel like there’s some kind of maneuver I need to make to get up on the bunkbed, and I have with me two kids, a boy and a girl. It seems to be my maternal grandmother’s house I’m at.
So as I try to figure all that out, then my grandmother comes into the room, so I’ve gotten down off the bunkbed. I’m kind of sitting on the bottom bunk, and then the phone on the upper bunk just makes a little blur sound. I mean, it’s just like a little one note, and I realized it had done that a couple of times and she tells me that’s actually what her telephone ring sounds like. It doesn’t ring a lot, it just makes one little sound, one little, “beep” sound, or some kind of a little sound that’s not like a normal ring at all. So I hadn’t even realized it was ringing when it was ringing.
So then I look at it, figure the light’s on, there must be messages on it. So I pick up the handle. It’s an old-fashioned phone with a cord and everything. When I pick it up, the operator—it was a real old-fashioned phone—the operator starts giving me instructions on what the code is to pick up the messages, but it’s almost like a word code rather than a number code. I guess it was something that worked for my grandmother that, you know, certain words and certain sequences and that’s how she knew to answer her phone, but it’s pretty bewildering to me because I’d never do a system like that.
So I didn’t quite hear the words or I didn’t quite know what they meant, so I have to kind of put it aside and look at my grandmother and see if she can explain to me, because I feel like it’s important to get the messages, but I’m not quite sure how you do when someone gives you these words. And that’s all I remember of that first dream.
John: What the phone representsis the connection, and what the grandmother represents is like the teacher. What the words represent, instead of the numbers, is like the name that unlocks; it’s like the name of things. It’s unlocks by knowing the essence of something, how to touch it. It opens up and reveals to you. So it’s a dream in terms of how to merge. It is a dream about merging. Taking and coming closer in order to be able to access it.
What the dream portrays is that you and parts of yourself, the boy and the girl, are able to go up and be in an area in which all of that is possible, where it’s receptive. But in terms of trying to grasp it, you have to pull it back down into creation. You have to bring it down from up above. In other words, you have to take it to heart in life, which is the merging, which is the greater teacher. And it’s a path about losing one’s self into the essence of everything that exists as the greater teacher.
So you have the grandmother that’s the facilitator. She says, well, that’s how it is for her. That’s what her sound’s like. But it has you in your grandmother’s house, or the teacher’s house, or the go-between, so to speak. The teacher of the teacher of the overall. It has you having to come to grips with a quality of merging, which causes you to know the names of everything that exists in creation, so to speak. Which is another way of saying how to touch everything that’s in creation, which is another way of saying of how to be in a space in which all of that is open and receptive to you and it’s not a surprise to you. It’s all part of you.
What’s interesting is the dream also portrays where you’re at. It portrays that you’re reaching that zone. And that you have the qualities inside of yourself that are with you, the little boy and the little girl; the softer qualities inside of yourself. In other words, you’re not just as an adult, kind of linear. In other words, you got the both halves. You’re able to work with the both halves, but you then have to in almost a grown-upish way, take this into life. You have to be able to know what is there to be heard. And you reduced it to the sense of hearing, but it’s also the sense of merging as a hearing, as a recognition.
In that regard, it is like the ring and the connection that the grandmother has, and you have to experience that for yourself. In other words, you’re in your grandmother’s house, so it’s your grandmother’s presence that is emanating out. And from that, you’re answering the phone, so it’s you that has to bring this through. It falls upon you to bring it through. She can tell you what it’s like, what it sounds like, essentially, you know, so to speak, show you what it is, point it out or something, as the teacher would say. But it’s up to you to go through that, to experience that.
What is the experience, then? It’s the experience that has to do with something that connects with all that there is. In other words, when you really hear it, as if a part of your heart that becomes receptive to all that there is.
It’s a dream about the completeness of something, in terms of one’s self, in relationship to all there is. It’s kind of like a dream that, if I were struggling with it in terms of ideation, I would be looking at the dream as if it were saying that some part of myself isn’t quite doing it. However, when you look at it in an overall, in which there is no imposed judgment, it’s indicating a process that is unfolding. It’s portraying where you’re at in that process that’s unfolding.

To really be connected and in the energetic flow of life requires, if it is understood, a deeper sense of responsibility. That begins with taking responsibility for what we radiate into the world and around others (i.e., is it a coarse or fine energy because of our state: anger, compassion, kindness?). The next elevation from that is to make possible the energetic fulfillment of a given moment, which becomes possible when we are intertwined. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane:The first dream just seemed to be like I was dreaming about elections, but elections in a distant country where people had been… maybe someone had been king, or people had been kings, and now they had to run in elections, which they didn’t always understand.
And I would say that sometimes a king might even be surprised if he actually got elected, but it just felt like there was this kind of rough and tumbling running for an election, and looking to see who got elected, and how it was odd when they had countries where you used to have one type of the way that someone ruled, and now that same person might have to run in another system. And sometimes they might win, sometimes not. That was the first dream.
John: That’s an image of coming down, energetically. In other words, it’s like you’re used to a scene. You used to have a scenario in which there’s a certain kind of natural aloofness and order to things. And so that means there’s a separation, a custom separation, and that conditions prevailed and prevailed and prevailed just the way they were in their set way and now, all of a sudden, you have to contend with the fact that you have to come down and you have to do something that enables you to be elected. You can’t sit upon some throne or something, up above.
But there’s also something more to this, and that is that you do this in a way that is able to be designed to the process. In other words, before you weren’t able to be resigned to the process. There was always something that was able to be aloof, and now you’re able to be resigned to the process. And even more so, it doesn’t matter. If you get elected, you get elected, and if you don’t, you don’t.
It’s not like it’s a big deal anymore, which means that technically the atmosphere of a stature has fallen away. And it’s almost as if like if you get elected or intertwined, you carry a responsibility. It’s not something that’s an achievement. It’s a responsibility. It’s a sense of being, but it’s not a kind of being that’s aloof.
Jeane:So the other dream I have it feels like at some point I’ve gone and visited this very wealthy man at his home, very kind of elaborate home, old fashioned almost like an old English home, lots of wood, and butler, and that sort of scene.
And I must have done something that angered him because I feel like he tossed me out, but I had been fascinated because of these Limoge coffee or tea cups they had. They were white with golden lettering around them, or pattern, Limoge pattern. And I knew they were very old. They were antiques, like even I think one cup and saucer might be even worth about $3,000, at least that’s what I seem to know about it.
Because of my fascination with these, I go back when he’s not there and the servants let me in. They even give me a cup of coffee in one of these Limoge cup and saucers. And I’m sitting there and I’m visiting with a friend of his that comes by, another young man, and we’re talking about the Limoge cups. He hadn’t really thought about them before, but I find them really beautiful.
But we’re talking about that and just visiting in general and relaxing there in this guy’s library, when I hear the guy come home unexpectedly. So then I set everything down carefully and decide I’ll hide behind a door, and maybe he won’t come in the library or, if he does come in, then I can dash out and get out of the house. But I have a feeling he’ll run out and catch me. I don’t really know because this is the point in the dream when I wake up.
John: What this dream means is that you find yourself in a setting in which there is something within that setting that you are able to embrace, or encompass, in a quality that is necessary to facilitate it being able to open up. In other words, every situation and every setting has a depth and a meaningfulness that is important in terms of the way it can come across and go into life. And what the dream is portraying is that you have a nature that is able to discern that sort of thing. In other words, you can be placed in a situation and come to know what is most meaningful in terms of how it is intended and meant to unfold.
The cups that you saw, a cup is used to serve and this serves in a very special, unique, high quality way. And so you are designed in such a way so that if you’re placed in a particular scenario, you’re able to see how that scenario is meant to unfold, and you’re able to accommodate accordingly in a way of holding that space. It isn’t just an over-the-topism. You are able to discern the poignancy behind the scene. The scene may have something that is over the top about it, in and of itself, but you’re able to draw out that which is most meaningful.
In other words, this is like information that’s giving you a greater meaningfulness of what is meant and is ready to open up.
And so you put the two together and you have, first of all, a type of flow that comes down that doesn’t just sit in a precocious way with things. It is able to bring it down into something that’s touchingly meaningful. And it does that in a way that isn’t forceful. In other words, it’s not about trying to reestablish a different kind of orientation. It’s part of an intertwining that you do that, from what had been a kind of hanging out aloofness that didn’t come down.
And when you’re able to function and flow in this way, then you’re able to support and accentuate what is meaningful in the environment that you find yourself in. Isn’t that interesting? It’s how that flows together. Wow.
