Captured in a dream and shot from a catapult? What could seem more disturbing to wake up to as an image? Yet, there is a happy ending to this story, because the captive has the hint that her saviors are amongst the crowd of captors. And, as we say, since we are all the characters in our dreams, we are always on both sides of the action – we are the captors and the captured. So what is important is that the two sides find an amicable outcome. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So I have one dream in which it feels like in olden times and I’m captured. It feels almost like in a desert area, not in the United States. It feels like another country. It feels like I’m taken to a desert area on the edge of a large body of water.
It’s either like I have to do what they want me to do, which might be marry someone that I don’t want to, or kind of be sacrificed or tortured by being catapulted out over the water in some way.
But when they catapult me out over the water, it feels like there’s a black man with his arm around me, and maybe another man a little bit behind me. And even though they might see these as men that are part of the army or whoever was forcing me to do this, I kind of feel like these are two people that will actually protect me or get me through this experience, whether we crash into the water or we continue catapulting out.
And then I kind of leave that scene, and I leave that dream. That’s all of that dream, then the dream switches.
John: Well, what could have easily triggered this dream is it’s like, it’s a subtle note. It’s like in order to kind of, almost break out of the sense of something always restricting you from breaking through. And you have the sense that something is breaking through, but there’s always this haunting, or a mannerism that just continues to preside over your nature.
You have yourself being catapulted or thrown asunder from it. You know, it’s kind of like a sensation of just really busting loose. What’s interesting is that you have to bust loose with hidden qualities that have been corrupted. In other words, parts of yourself that—you’re kind of comfortable and kind of know about yourself, but you don’t fully own. That has to go with you. In other words, you have to take the whole essence of yourself. You haven’t quite caught up with the package of yourself that is complete in and of itself. You can’t catapult with that yet. You’re helter-skelter with that. You can’t leave anything behind.
So whatever it is that’s malingering, that’s holding onto you and whatnot, there’s this in betweenness that’s associated, that you know is there, that is compromised in both areas.
In other words, the captors that are holding on to you are from the perspective of whatever it is that’s haunting you, part of that, and yet at the same time, you know that it’s part of you.
It’s, how do you take and just break free without still carrying some sort of residual reverberation? You can’t do it – until you take full sum of yourself.
