We have spoken before about water images and fish images as being representative of the unconscious. Sometimes it can be a small body of water, or an ocean, or a small fish or a big fish. Here we see a human-sized fish that’s following our dreamer around and trying to communicate with her. And, as you might expect, that makes her a little uncomfortable. Sometimes dreams try to communicate subtly through their symbolism, and sometimes the symbolism jumps out of the water as a huge fish and flat-out says it’s trying to communicate.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Okay, in the second dream, I’m living with a group of people and at one point I leave the house and I discover there’s been a huge snowstorm. And I’m trying to make it down the hill and back in a snowstorm.

At one point it feels like I even really slide and come right to an edge where I could go over, but I seem to stop, and I’m studying out how to go down and around. Then it feels like I’ve come back and I’ve gotten my sister and we’ve left, but when we want to make our way back what’s happened is we’re kind of almost like flowing uphill, and everything around us is in upheaval.

Whole buildings have just kind of either fallen, or gone up in the air and turned over, or whatever’s going on, and what used to be the road that we took downhill it’s become all like a muddy river almost, and we’re trying to make our way kind of against the current and getting back.

And there’s even things that look like alligators on the side and underwater, or you think like they can be after you, but they don’t seem to bother us. So we make it back towards where we’re going, and I’m even going somewhere towards work, and someone notices these big fish in the water to the side. And there very unusual fish with kind of tentacles a little bit like catfish, and someone had once said there were no big fish in that water, and I’m thinking, well, you know, these look as big as a person.

But then one comes out on land and I see that there’s something actually like they’re actually manmade on some level, or alien.  There’s kind of a plate near the back of their head that’s almost like you feel like they’ve been manmade or manufactured in some way, but they’re also intelligent. It’s like they try to communicate with us, and so we hurry off to work. And I start hiding from the boss that I even see or knew anything about the fish, but I break something so he knows I was in the room overhearing a conversation he was having about them, I think, but I try to act like it was the cleaning lady that dropped something on the floor and not myself and my sister or whoever I’m with.

And then to make our way back but, when I leave work to make my way back now, these alien fish-like people, I guess is what they are, are trying to communicate with me all the time and following me around or showing up where I am, and it’s like I’m a little freaked out by it. I don’t know quite what to make about it, that they’re doing this, because I don’t know what they are or what they’re about yet.

John: You’re using an image to try to portray how the breath works, and in the out-breath you come down and, when you hit the interval to where the out-breath turns to the in-breath it’s like being on the edge of a cliff in that you’re at the furthest point, so to speak, from the crown, and it seems that in this particular zone where you don’t have a lot going on for yourself in the outer, because you’re at this edge, nor do you have the inner on the return working, that you could’ve cracked up. You could’ve gone into a state of despair; but you didn’t. You didn’t go over the edge.

And so then you made the return back, and you’re making the return back, something comes out or opens up for you, and it’s these fish, and these fish have a kind of consciousness. In other words, who would guess that in the like in-breath coming back, going back to where you belong to a home, going back, that there would be such amazing consciousness.

And each time come to realize more and more of an intertwined linkage, or awareness, of what was opening up inside at some depth inside of yourself that is represented by these fish that are attempting to get your attention.

So you’re portraying the path. In other words, the first time you had to be rescued by kind of a grace because you were really under blizzard conditions, and you couldn’t see your way, and it was only fortuitous that something kind of worked out. And then the next time you started to recognize all of the plight of things that were there. And the third time you started to realize that there’s an awareness that is trying to get your attention.

What you’re basically describing is the awakening of the soul inside of yourself, in other words, the overallness of that. You’re portraying it just as if you’re discovering, as if you’re going through the various levels from beginning to end, like a one, two, three, three breaths, with the third breath getting to the point that you have a sense that what no one believed was possible is possible. It’s big, it’s there, it looks a little scary, but it’s trying to get your attention.

The fourth would be more of an aspect of completion then, because you would be allowing and accepting yourself to be carried away in that condition. And if you were to allow yourself to be caught up and carried away in that condition, what you would find would happen is that everything that you would be doing would all have to be oriented towards this quality of illumination – which means that you would be outside of the physical, outside of the emotion of things that tries to sort something out with the heart. You would be taking everything that is happening to you into this other zone, into this part of higher self. In other words, you’d be awakening to that realization that that’s what you really are all about.

Instead of quite coming to that full recognition, you came up to the point where you were aware that the consciousness is huge and that it was trying to get your attention, and that it was a little unnerving, and shocking, to see that it was like that. You got up to that particular point.

The next step after that would be to accept and be able to take and go into that. The problem that exists when you come up to this particular point where you now have to accept and go into that, is that as long as you’re still kind of in awe of it, or noticing that something like that kind of exists on the other side, you’re still in a position that is relatable to the lower-self elements of things where delirium exists, and where you can delude yourself.

But when you get to the point where something like that otherness takes over, so that everything about you is in conjunction with the soul of the whole, then whatever it is that happens in the physical, or in the outer, however it is that you are affected then, you have to take that affect and flip it as if, in order to see what it really is about in terms of something on the soul level.

Now when you start to function like that, you’re not going to make a lot of sense to a lot of people because people are still caught in their mind and their senses, and they’re going to have to perceive things in terms of how those things correlate or relate to them. And you’re not going to be effective like you might have been before when you are caught in belief systems. You’re not going to be effective at upholding the various stories, the storybook nature that people have, and that you have.

It gets to the point where even the physical ailments of yourself are not like physical ailments anymore, they also somehow or another have a meaningfulness in terms of the world soul. In other words, whenever you’re going through something that is affecting you physically, where most people would be dwelling upon their aches and pains, you would be inclined to look at that in terms of what is this about on the other side. How do I take and turn this into the big picture?

It’s a whole different frame of reference that almost looks crazy to a person who’s caught in the physical, because it’s almost like a type of denial from the perspective of something that’s caught in the physical, and it even can look like a denial to yourself because you are in the physical and you’re going to have these aches and pains, but these aches and pains and mannerisms to which you’re perturbed and upset, you kind of come to recognize that they point to something else and that something else that they point to is outside of a personal mannerism that you have been accustomed to seeing yourself under. They point to something in which you subtract yourself out and you start to see this being about the whole, or the soul, about everything that exists, and everything kind of goes into that as a quality of what’s really going on.

k773In this dream, the idea of fair dealing is understood as symbolic of the state of being intertwined with the flow of things. And much has been studied and analyzed about the human and its innate sense of right and wrong, in the moral sense. Yet beyond that, there is also a deep sense in us – when we don’t suppress it – of knowing “the way things are supposed to be,” which points to an urge to always improve the environment we are in. Still, in our world today, almost nothing is as it should be, which puts great contradiction and stress into our lives and physical systems. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: All I remember about my first dream is that it seemed to involve things that were being sold at something like the antique mall, or secondhand shop. And it felt like I was just trying to see that things were sold at the right price. And I went to the extent of even pulling a gun on somebody at one point so they didn’t cheat, you know, the person that they’re selling the things to that was going to sell them to the public.

I seem to feel very strongly about it, whatever it was. That’s all I remember about the first dream.

John: Well, the deeper meaning in that is that you’re struggling to hold onto and maintain a place in which there is a natural overall clarity which predominates. And in the dream you appear to have a sense of it being askew.

And so what is it that is askew? What’s askew is this idea, or this aspect, of oneness in which everything is commonly known. And so you seem to have a clarity about it in terms of how it needs to be portrayed and, if you can catch up with and access this clarity, it enables something more to come together.

You’re using an imagery of buying and selling to portray the connectivity, the intertwining. When something is in this kind of imagery, mis-priced, then there is a gap, and a barrier, that exists that keeps a cohesion from coming together.

When something is properly priced, then the well being of everyone benefits as a quality of appreciation is able to come through.

So you have an interesting dilemma on your hands because this is what you are having to sort out, based upon a general overall sense that you carry in terms of a balance, that needs to exist in the atmosphere, in the overall sense of things in the world.

im33If we have ever been around a leader, or someone who is very accomplished in what they do, it is easy to understand the effect they have on a room full of people. They can do that because what they have become, through their work and life, has given them a certain radiation. Of course, there are also people who have negative radiations, or people who bring stress into an otherwise calm situation. Through development we learn to be able to hold the best of a situation to allow it to unfold in the best possible way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well the only dream I remember, I had brought this object that looked like a sphere of some kind, it’s like three dimensional, and I brought it down to a foot or so above the ground. It was large and I was trying to get it to a certain size, especially the bottom of it a certain size, but for some reason, wherever I was, I just couldn’t do it. I had it for a second, but it didn’t quite work in that dimension or something.

I couldn’t quite figure out why, and so I just kept trying to get this object to form and hold that form and that space, but I couldn’t do it yet. And so it was so frustrating. You felt it should be able to. You know, in this world it looked like an object you have in this world, but wherever I was it didn’t hold its form quite that way there, at the size I wanted it or whatever.

And so it was a long dream because I just kept trying to get it to do that, and it didn’t do it there.

John: Well the theme of the dreaming last night had to do with being in a way in which something is able to be effectuated. In other words, using the dream group scenario, when the perspective is based upon outer appearances, nothing is able to change. And it is very hard to drop the outer appearances and hear something that is coming into, that is part of life, in a whole other way, in other words outside of the outer ramifications and appearances.

The dream you had, had to do with establishing a presence in terms of the greater inner overallness, in relationship to the outer. In other words, the prevailing pattern is the outer, and the outer is always reacting and is always conducting itself in such a way as to keep everything disoriented, or destabilized.

And you went to sleep sensitized that this is the predominant condition that one has to contend with, and so you spent the night contending with that in terms of trying to access, or to reach, or to bring from some inner depth within, what it takes to cause something to be stabilized, in other words, to not go this way or that way, to not blow the energy or to diffuse the potentiality.

That’s what you seem to have drilled down on, as a consequence of being in a dream group, in which what occurred was a catching up, an understanding that peeked its head through, and for that to happen, you held the space properly in terms of your dream so that everyone could see the deeper flow of what it was that was happening in terms of your dream.

It worked because you held your demeanor in check in such a way so that you held the space, so that what could unfold could unfold without you challenging it in some way, or interfering with it in some way.

Basically what you did was you enabled them to find themselves inside of yourself, and to the degree to which they may not have wanted that sort of thing to be, that they were still in rebellion, then there would be some sort of exception to the situation, or conceptualization, or defense mechanism that would come out, but when you held the space and told the dream, little by little everyone was able to catch up bit by bit with what that dream was about.

That effect of all of that caused you to realize and recognize, as an energetic within, that the importance of the way one lives or conducts themselves in the outer is to be able to be in a place, and in a space, and in a depth within that holds a continuity together, which is what you did in the dream.

A quality of the sincerity of your makeup was such that you took all of this for a spin to see how can you use a key or auric quality of your beingness to hold a continuity together – so it doesn’t shatter.
