Setting the Contrast

chal28Here is a series of dreams that show how the process of multiple dreams, in the course of one night, can work – even if you only remember fragments. The first glimpse implies activity, and when we are too active, or too personally involved in life in the outer, we become disconnected from our inner guidance. The second glimpse shows that inability to connect, to commit, in the form of an engagement ring. And, finally, the dream comes out and shows the attempt to block a transition, one inner aspect of the dreamer resisting another inner aspect from being able to merge. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, what I remember of my dreams is I think in most of the dreams I was male.

The first dream, which is kind of vague to me, I think I worked in a television studio, in some kind of an action role, as a man. I don’t really remember that dream clearly.

And following that was a dream in which it felt like a woman I was engaged with was trying to get to where I was and there was a barrier between us. And so when she got up to where the barrier was, there was a little slot, kind of a see-through slot, in the wall where you could put something that identified yourself in. And I think she put our engagement ring in there.

And that was all I really remembered of the second dream.

John: The first dream is an imbalanced dream, in that you’re in an action role which is the opposite of the second dream. And the second dream has to do with you becoming committed to something because you had an engagement ring.

That has to do… it’s not a complete image, but the image, if projected all the way through, would have to do with, like I said, a type of commitment, which is actually a form of surrender. And the surrender is in terms of reaching a space inside of yourself in which you lose the way that you’re holding, or conducting, yourself outwardly.

In other words, you lose yourself to a something more, something greater. And the reason why I say it’s opposite the first image glimpse is that is an energetic that is being interjected into the equation that holds you back. The other is a letting go; it stops the doingness of something.

In other words, the feminine, in an overall sense, is a container that can take and handle the overall affairs of the world, that is able to absorb and take all of that in as a cadence. And you’re thrown off from doing that, you’re out of balance from doing that, and you’re scoping around from doing that. You’re having the image of that, but your first dream has you active, when that is a subjective way of being. And your second dream has you studying to figure out how to get back on track. What was your third dream?

Jeane: In the next dream I’m still a man, and wherever I’m working I want to change from the department I’m in to go work in a department where I’ll be like a spy or… yeah, I think it’s like a spy, it’s that kind of a department.

And there’s a man there that will try to block my getting there, so I’ve gone over to the department on my own to let them know my qualifications because I’m pretty sure that he’s written a letter that will try to block my getting that transfer. And when I get there, I get a packet that shows that, you know, they’ve got all my information, and I think it’s a packet like they’ve given me because they’re accepting the transfer. And yet I still have to go and see if I can find and block the letter that the other guy was going to send, or maybe it’s even included in my packet because they don’t care.

But I’m happy with being able to get a transfer to that department where I can be more active.

John: So again it’s not a smooth cadenced dream because there’s a sense of a transition that has to be made, or a shift. And, at the same time, there are things going on to keep it from happening, or to attempt to block it.

Dreams tend to have, if you look at a dream really closely, the dream has both a positive unfoldment, and a negative unfoldment. And even under a positive unfoldment there is stretching out from something that had been holding you back. And that there’s a way of looking at that, in the negative sense, in order to keep even a positive dream in perspective. There’s an anchor to it, behind it.

But your dreams are accentuating the fact that there is something going on that’s holding you back. You’re not able to catch up with how it is that you’re meant to be in the second dream. In the third dream, the sense of something trying to block you from being able to transfer, or transition, is fairly loud. It’s not just hidden and dormant. It’s a loud concern in the dream.

And, in the first dream, you’re carrying on going in an active sense that keeps you blurred. And if you mix that blurred active sense with the quality of trying to find a laid back rhythm of yourself that contrasts.

So, the sequence of the way you were dreaming is, you took and you set a context that was off right at the beginning on the first dream. And then, in the second dream, you proceeded to indicate that this was a struggle, that you had a struggle. Well, you would if you had all of this doing activity in the way. And, in the third dream, it’s like you have forces inside of yourself that are fighting you from being able to make a shift.
