Being Engulfed

engulfed0It’s much easier to talk about the idea of surrender on a spiritual path than to actually do it. These dream images show that, and the form it takes is the image of being stalked by a murderer, and then of being suspected of being a murderer. The seriousness of those ideas shows how serious the concept is to the dreamer, and yet we know that when we are being chased in a dream we need to stop running and allow ourselves to be caught – so a deeper inner connection can be made. If spirituality is to become part of something greater than ourselves, we’re going to have to find a way to let go to it.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well I felt like I had two dreams I pulled out, and I was having some problems with a little bit of cramping in my legs when I straightened them out, so it was like that would pull me out to the surface more than I liked to be.

But I’m not sure of the order of the dreams, but I think in the first dream there’s some guy that’s maybe killed a few women, who’s stalking me. And he tries to do things like come through a drainpipe into the house, or some kind of a pipe that goes into the house, or at the office or somewhere. But I kind of know that he’s stalking me, but I have to keep checking all the time when I go places to see if he’s showing up or not – so I can keep him away from me.

And it’s also like trying to sometimes convince other people that he is doing this, so they can get him. I do seem to be able to get away from him, or to expose him if he shows up. And that was that dream.

John: That dream causes me to remember another little dream that happened inside, in which people are taking on a particular demeanor inside – and they’re not allowed to take on that demeanor in terms of what’s coming.

And it comes right into the house and it completely disorients you, and it’s like this huge presence that can completely engulf you. I have to jump off to one side, you know, and I’m inside trying to, before it comes all the way in, I’m actually even trying to warn people that whatever’s going on inside there doesn’t need to happen, that something is impending. And it’s just like this energy and, for a split second, I even stepped into it and all frames of reference are gone, all frames of reference. It was an engulfing thing.

Then I stepped back away and woke up and realized that this is going to engulf every… This is here. It’s coming inside. It’s going to engulf everything. And so what is stalking you is similar to that vibration of something that swallows the density and the nuances of one’s makeup – once one drops those mannerisms, ways that they project themselves, and carry themselves. Then you can function, but until you do that sort of thing kind of plays upon you and drags at your attention all the time. And everyone has that dragging at their attention in some fashion or another, and that’s just how they are. And that is not what is supportable anymore, because when you support that that takes you away from yourself.

So what’s behind everything that is pushing people to do this, and to do that, is this deeper vibration that is trying to come through. And if they can screen out the outer conditions, and the outer mannerisms, of things, but they still carry in their being as a vibrationalism as if it’s important, if they can let go of that, then they can be engulfed.

It’s an engulfing energy and, instead of allowing that to happen, it’s easy to just settle for something that you can make a big deal about, as a dharma, or frame of reference, or the idea of being stalked. That’s all a doing, and that all has to do with pointing one’s attention towards something outwardly, because inwardly it would be all-engulfing. And who can allow the all-engulfing to happen? Because that will take away all frames of reference, frames of reference that people cling to for their own idea of getting by.

Jeane: In the other dream I have it’s almost like a flip of that one. Almost like a flip side of someone stalking me. In this dream, I’m more being spied on because they think that I’m the one that’s been going around killing people. They think I’ve been going around killing people, so they’re trying to catch me doing it.

And I have a boyfriend who’s a detective, and then there’s a girl that maybe I work with or something that I know, but they’re always popping up places trying to catch me killing someone. I just think this whole thing is so absurd, I just want my boyfriend to, like, get in the car and we’re going to go where we’re going to go.

And yet they keep popping up around the corner, or doing this or that, trying to spy on me to catch me doing what they think that I’m doing that I’m not doing. So my feeling in this dream is just one of kind of exasperation, like would he just get in the car so we can get on with it because what they’re looking for is not happening.

John: That’s an interesting way... The first dream is projection, too. In other words, something is coming, but it doesn’t come all the way through, and it hits some little thing where there is something that you still feel or contend with, and when you contend with anything you have to contend with it in relationship to how it is that you’re designed, in terms of your challenges, your veils.

You have to contend with what that is like for you yet, and when you are caught in an energetic vortex like that, and then have a sense of something so much more, it’s a sensation of being stalked. In this case, you had the good sense to just stop and observe. When you stop and observed, you realized you were creating all of this. That’s what your second dream was doing.

Dreams that I’m classifying dreams in terms of the way they’re coming from and such, as energetics in manifestation, this should be a little like a Vishnu dream. And your dreams are more of a Vishnu nature and, oddly enough, mine are too only slightly differently. They’re Vishnu acknowledging the Brahma energy that is imminent and is rapidly approaching, and soon to be all-engulfing. And in order to hold that stillness I can’t be caught up in anything in particular – or I will be in a trance over having done that.
