It is easy to assume that we, as individuals, have little power. But the energetic worlds see us differently, as shown in these dream images. We all have power, or are connected to the power of things, but we need to unlock it or liberate it from within. As what is unconscious in us (underwater in the image) is made conscious, it comes with great power, and that power is meant to be held and harnessed by us – rather than immediately expended. In that way, we can become a conduit for greater things. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: Well, in my dream, I seem to be part of a fairly large family. And in the center of the room of our house, it’s like we have some water suspended in there, and underneath the water are these kind of vehicles – but they’re always in the water. I mean like it’s almost like suspended in the sense that it doesn’t drain anywhere, it doesn’t move anywhere, it doesn’t act like water actually does. It’s behaving more like a jelly. Do you know what I mean?
I know that we actually do is these vehicles are usually something we take out to the bottom of the lake, and it’s like when you go to work that’s what you do, you go out there and your vehicle is supposed to operate underwater in the lake. And I’m looking forward to that, but I never seem to get a chance to do it.
Instead it’s like I go with some of the kids to a museum, and we get tickets. We go into this museum. It seems they have a lot of kind of like old icons and stuff in it, and then I get separated from the group, and I go down into a downstairs room that has windows all along where the ground is. I’m there by myself, and this great big grizzly bear breaks one of the windows and comes in.
So in this museum, I’ve left the group and I’ve gone down into a basement room, and this grizzly bear comes in. So I’m kind of backed up on a little couch against the wall, with a great big grizzly bear in my face. And it just seems to hover there and look at me. It doesn’t seem to want to harm me or anything. It just is right there.
And it’s there for awhile and then, when it decides to leave and it goes out the window, the grizzly bear’s wife, who’s much smaller and even dressed in some people clothes or something, comes in for a minute, and kind of growls at me, and then leaves. That was the end of the first dream.
John: The first image indicates that your beingness is not able to breakthrough something; its encompassed in a kind of unconsciousness. The second part of the dream indicates that the breaking out of that unconsciousness results in you catching up with a greater perspective, a larger perspective that is surrounded by power.
Another way of saying it is, that a power is needed, a certain power, a majesty of power, a presence is needed, and when that is there you break out of the dormancy, or a cocoon effect, in terms of your ability to flow and function, to move about.
When it’s there you break out of that, you can do that. Otherwise, you drive in a state that is still a little delirious and unconscious. You sit in a state that’s a little unconscious, you drive around in a state that is still sorting things out with the unconscious. But when you catch up with that inner power, and the fascination of an overall that is at your disposal, too, that comes with all of that, that is there simultaneously, the condition that you’re sitting within is just fine.
It’s kind of like an image where how it is that you are sitting is what it is, and it is a bit unconscious, or veiled, and it moves about in that way, too. And then the image is that you can somehow snap, and shift, and sit in an area where you’re attentive to what is interesting and you sit in a reserved inner power at that time.
So it’s kind of like a slingshot dichotomy. It’s kind of like flip sides of a coin. It’s kind of like being on one side sitting there and sitting there, like in a cocoon, and then suddenly popping out on the other side – except it’s not really the image of a butterfly. It’s more the image of sitting with a certain presence and power, in what is fascinating and interesting, and being. And that’s all you need to do.
Jeane: In my second dream, I don’t remember the details of it. I just remember that it’s like I wanted to try to help fix something and I couldn’t seem to be able to fix it. So it was just like kind of going into something and trying to fix something, and just feeling totally frustrated because I couldn’t.
John: Yeah, it’s kind of like correcting you, you know, to make sure that you understood and followed the main theme, which is just sitting with that power, and what is fascinating in the museum of life is all you need to do.
You can’t really try to fix something. If you try to fix something you would be violating your nature. You might react. In other words, you would lose a certain equanimity. Your higher self sits, or the higher quality of your being that comes out and it knows how, in terms of incorporating who you are, it knows how to contain itself, sitting in the schematic of things as they’re unfolding, with a quality that takes into account. I mean you had both sides, the masculine bear, and the feminine bear. Very interesting.
You should look up the symbolism in the book of a bear because it’s the most powerful symbolism for the Native American. It’s the most powerful. The eagle is one thing, but the bear denotes an awful lot as well. The eagle is different in terms of sight and such. The bear in terms of the order, balance, and wholeness.
