We’ve spoken before about how dream images can show us where we are in a learning process, as our journey awakens new aspects and possibilities within. In these dreams it shows this exactly because the dreamer is all of the characters in the dream, so to see oneself as both the teacher and the student is an accurate portrayal of inner process. Certain aspects of us get the message of different things more quickly that others. For us to succeed, all of our parts need to “get” it.

Jeane: Well, I had kind of a miserable night of it when it came to dreaming. My main dream is I seem to be ordered to go to remedial school. You know, like how people have to go to drug and alcohol class?
You have to go like for an hour once a week, it’s embarrassing, it’s held at the drug and alcohol center. It’s a remedial class, but I’m not clear what it’s on. Not only that, I’m given a script and told I have to teach the first session. I don’t know whether I have to teach more sessions or not.
So I go, but half the people that show up are guys that are wearing headsets and plugged in either to a television, or music, or something else, and the first thing I have to do is try to get them to unplug from the other things and actually be at the class.
And then I have a script I’m supposed to teach from, but I have to get, you know, people unplugged from their headsets first. Meanwhile, it’s just embarrassing to be in the class. I was ordered to go to it. I have to go to ten sessions of it.
John: The key is to look at the theme of the dreaming, and the theme of the dreaming is that we’ve been altered and changed in some capacity – and it may not necessarily be in the way that we think.
You’re finding yourself in an altered state and, therefore, the impressions and images you see for yourself, in terms of yourself, are different because your vibrational level is different. And so the dream is kind of introducing you to what it is about you that has changed, in other words, in terms of approach, or mannerism, in which you’re finding yourself conducting yourself. And it’s pointing out that you’re noticing and coming across with something that you hadn’t noticed before.
Number one, you’re both the teacher and the student in the class that you have now found that you have to go to. The student in the class means that you’re having to catch up with some part of yourself that is there that, in the future, means that you’re able to relate or talk and communicate in terms of.
Now what triggered a dream like this? The thing that’s behind this dream, that triggers this dream, is that I was trying to find this word last night and I’d have to look it up to see if this is the right word to use. I think it’s called the magus trait. Now what a magus is, is it’s a forbearer of things to come, and it’s like being a type of seer. It’s somewhat similar to the shepherds who were there for baby Jesus when he was first born, that came, and traveled.
They were like the magus, they were aware of something and recognizing it as it’s unfolding. And, of course, for you to catch up with that you need to go to more schooling. A certain kind of schooling needs to evolve, needs to occur, in which then you become the understanding of that, or the teacher of that. And it’s an energetic shift in relationship to how you had been seeing yourself. Not that you’re seeing yourself in this way yet, it’s just that you’re being tweaked. Your energy has been a recognition in terms of something that has come across for you is there, but not yet fully tuned in.
And things tend to happen always at a speed that’s a little faster than what you’re doing. But to fully appreciate what that is all about you have some catching up to do. And, of course, some part of you has caught this, understands this, is shifting into this now.
Jeane: So I woke up at 3 a.m. and after a long time was able to go back to sleep hoping for another dream – and there I am in remedial class again, and this time I’m going to my second class.
Before class I seem to run into people I know and be finding out about things that they’re doing. I don’t seem to have to be teaching remedial class the second time, but I have to even figure out how to sit there and not feel embarrassed when people see that I’m there. And have to go figure out even how to… you stick a pencil in this hole. You have to find one that’s the right size, one that’s small enough, and that registers that you’ve come. Someone even has to tell me how to do that.
At one point I go to one hairdresser and get my haircut, but I have to go to someplace else to have them do a second process on it before I go back to the first person to have her complete her work – and that’s a little confusing to all of us. And I run into people and they tell me where they’re traveling, and I’m aware that we’re going to be traveling, too, and when I finally get to class it feels like I’m still embarrassed about being there, and I’m more embarrassed because people that know me seem to come by and look in the class, and wonder what I’m doing there.
The nice thing that happens is some lady does sit next to me at one point and tells me how much I had helped… I guess she has a daughter who’s in high school, and how much I had helped them with the counseling I did.
At the same time she’s looking at me like, what am I doing in the remedial class? And I don’t know what I’m doing in the remedial class, you know. I’m still as out to lunch about it as everybody, and embarrassed still to be there. And the person who’s teaching it has me come and sit next to them for a few minutes, and reminds me I haven’t checked in, and shows me how you do that.
You have to go find the right size pencil, one that’s thin enough and you stick it in the little sharpener, but it actually triggers something that registers that you’ve come there so you get credit for the class. So it’s like for me it was still fairly confusing.
John: What this dream is also doing, in terms of adding to the prior dream, or going back to the prior dream, is it’s causing me to not look at things quite so linearly. In other words, it’s like when you see yourself functioning in a particular way you’re inclined to think, okay, this is how I’m functioning.
But you’re not functioning in that way, you’re functioning in a whole bunch of ways. In other words, there’s a part of yourself that has a sight and a wisdom that comes from somewhere that can advice to people. Another way of looking at yourself is you have no right to give advice to anybody. You’re still trying to learn.
A third aspect is that in doing so you’re shaking something out, and of course this has to do with holding a space in your way of approaching life. You’re shaking something loose in terms of your sense of awareness and, as a result, you’re pulled to sit next to the teacher.
But, you know, there’s still a lot of amnesia in terms of all of this because, on one hand, you can be questioned as to why you’re this way or that way, because at the same time you’ve revealed some aspects that have been important, but you don’t have it nailed down yet. You’re still sharpening the pencil, still closing in on things.
