It is, perhaps, more apparent at this time of year how we change ourselves when we are with others. We all do it to one degree or another. But it makes for an interesting process to be more conscious of it in ourselves, because the nature of a spiritual journey is to become someone, and something, of our own choosing and intention, and to build an assembly in ourselves that is not swayed by the world, but rather brings higher energy into the environments we find ourselves in – as a service to the universe. It is our consistency that allows higher things to anchor to our lives, and it is that that provides true change in us.

Jeane: This is a hard dream to pull out in a way because it feels like I’m in a setting where there’s a number of people around, but I’ve gone aside and I’m observing a man. Somehow this man has done something where he knows how to gather up energy and shift things in a situation, almost like levitating the energy. He’s doing something with the energy that he’s taken from the whole room.
It’s not like he’s stealing energy, but he knows how to gather up energy and push it up in some way – and I’ve observed him doing this. He’s even said something to me about it, but then I go apart from him and, unknown to him, I figure out how to do it on my own. And, at some point, I come to him and I reveal what I’ve learned how to do, and he’s a little bit either shocked or surprised that I’ve figured out how to do this.
But then he takes me to another situation. It seems to me like we had to go by boat, and in this situation it’s almost like you have to use this ability to counter other forces which are up above. And I almost feel like he doesn’t expect me to succeed at this because it’s not like I was really trained in how to do this. I had figured it out on my own.
And I can’t figure out if these other forces are kind of trying to defeat me, or if I’m strengthening, or if it’s a way that they want to discourage me from doing this. It’s a part of the dream that’s unclear to me what’s going on at that point. It’s like I’m going out and I’m having to try to counter, or even being subjected to some kind of force – or is he actually trying to enlist me in overcoming something that’s been suppressing things? That’s what’s unclear to me, because I can’t really get a lot of the visual images that well.
John: Yeah, it seems to be the dilemma right now, is that there are things that are happening in the environment around us that seem okay, in terms of the appearance, but they are actually tearing something down by the way they are. And it’s not like you can blame them for being like that; they can’t help but to be like that, but when you’re around that and you adapt yourself in accordance with that, what you tend to do is get pulled down by that. You get dulled or infected by that.
Now what’s causing this to happen, the tendency is to look at what there is and put it on a pedestal. In other words, see it for how it can be more than what it is. In other words, give it more credit than credit is due, and when you do that, and that’s inappropriate, then that takes and impacts the way you’re able to feel yourself because you get lost in this other.
This is a peculiar, strange, in-between state because you’re still carrying something about yourself, but you’re not carrying it so strong that you are shielded from things outside of yourself. And you haven’t let go of it enough so that the things outside of yourself can just be that way, be how they are, and thus you’re not affected, thus you don’t exist.
The dilemma is in trying to hold on and be an accommodating force yourself. You’re being yourself in relationship to all of that, and so you’re affected by that. Everybody in their way, and they all go up to a particular point, and then they go flat. They don’t have something that consistently flows because the illusion, or personality, or mannerism that they carry, that isn’t what it’s about. That’s just a persona or something that they put on.
Now what happens is you look at that personality and you can tend to see through it. You may not realize how you see through it, but you tend to see something more to it. But that doesn’t mean they see something more in terms of themselves. They don’t. They’re just coping with what lies right in front of them.
You might as well assume that the steps upon which that they are coping and carrying on, they’re stuck in those steps. The progress that they make in those regards is very, very minor. But the dilemma is, if you have a human nature that tends to look at what’s going on, so to speak, how they push the energy, the energetic and such, and so you’re actually relating to them in a way that’s more on the other side, more in terms of a greater quality of their being, in which they can do a certain magic, or do certain things, because they have an understanding of this other quality or side of themselves, if you’re looking and relating to that, but they’re not, then you’re going to get pulled down.
Because your ability to relate to that has to do with, as a general rule, you looking at yourself and then you’re looking at yourself in relationship to, like in your case, like a container energy or something in relationship to that. And you can’t function trying to hold something in place that’s an illusion, so you have to function by trying to hold in place something that you see as a higher self, or that which is real.
Well the degree to which you’re functioning by relating to people in terms of how it is that they are, and the manner in which they are, you’re relating to them through your personality, to the degree to which you have your way of being perceived and understood as a personality – and that tears you down because that’s not what life is about. You don’t relate that way. You learn to relate to a person in terms of how they are, or where they’re able to be.
Now what happens is there comes a time when you have a sight where you can see something that has a higher potentiality, and you cannot help but defer to the higher potentiality. Now what’s happened there is you have this quality that’s awakening and emerging inside of yourself, and then you come and you relate to somebody and there is this development inside of yourself that’s got a – and we all have it, this is where everybody gets duped – it’s like there’s a race of energy or rush of energy. How do you contain and hold onto that energy so you don’t just dissipate it in a flash?
So what happens is the pattern that keeps repeating is, let’s say if you have good empathic skills, you kind of tend to adopt the perspective of the other person. And you can even get yourself somewhat lost in that, in terms of holding that perspective, I mean shape-shifting even, to coordinate that perspective, or to work with that perspective to make a flow happen that wouldn’t happen otherwise because that person is carrying some certain heavy nuances that get in the way.
It’s what a teacher does. A teacher takes and adopts, or takes over, or takes on a trait of a particular student and with that relieved they then float better. They then can have better insights. They then can take on something and be filled. That’s how the teaching process kind of works.
Now what happens if you find yourself doing that, and you’re doing it around people that are stuck, that are set, that when they fall back on their own devices, and their own ways, they fall back onto a pattern and a habituation that’s all choked off again. And you have gotten yourself overly indulged in their personal nature, or well being, and you get pulled down, too.
See, the thing is this is, where you get the mixed signals because you know that everything is connected, everything is a oneness, and whatever is going on with someone else you can kind of understand. You come from an energy that can take and grasp that, that can speed up into that, and therefore you can alleviate something by your presence.
But, at the same time, you’re having to absorb like a vacuum cleaner how it is that they are. You don’t notice necessarily that you’re doing that. You’re kind of glad to meet them and you’re okay with doing that because you have this reservoir of energy that you’ve developed on an inner level of yourself, so to speak the other side, the higher-self of your being, and so you’re able to float with that.
That’s why the essence of a consciousness exists best in a silence, in a quietness, in a place that holds itself in a way so that those that it meets don’t find reason to have to sort something out in relationship to you because everyone is lost, they’re all scattered, and they’re doing their best to try to put things together, and they’re doing their best to try to be comfortable in their own skin. And to the degree to which they’re not able to do that you, if you get too close, have to contend with those reverberations.
