It’s it a wonderfully connective image to realize that everything in the universe is breathing – it’s something we have in common with what surrounds us. And this idea of breathing needs to include more than the breathing of oxygen, but also the breathing of energies – which is another kind of food for us. And to breathe with something is to be in sync with it, because it has been scientifically proven that people in love can breathe in unison. This concept is also used in healing therapies. So imagine what that means for us, if we can breathe with the whole of the universe? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So, in the dream, it’s like I’m going back and examining working at healing with the breath, that this is something that I know something about doing, or I’ve done in the past. I’m in the process of examining that, and just working with the breath.
I come across some people talking about a meeting they’re having, where even someone I knew who is in high school is coming into town, and she’s going to be teaching a class to another group of people that also do breath work. And I know she’s very bright, but she’s kind of stiff, and I know that I probably even know more about teaching it, or can do it in a more lively way than she can. But I hadn’t even realized this group of people have been meeting, and having seminars on it, locally.
I had never met up with the group that was doing it, or teaching it, even though I have a lot of experience in it. And so they didn’t have any idea I could do it, either, so one person I can see is kind of interested they could see that I could probably teach a good class in this, but others who are in charge are kind of dubious because they had never thought of me one way or another of being able to do this.
So I’m pondering all that, and I see that she’s going to come and she’ll teach, and I’m going over in my mind what will be the difference in the ways that I might teach, or what I could introduce.
And then I seem to drift a little…
John: What’s interesting in the first dream is that the awareness you have, you describe it as an awareness of breath, that is something that you’re coming to recognize, in other words, the vibrational element within that, and that you’re able to facilitate or teach that. In other words, it’s something that you didn’t realize that you could do, but you’ve kind of been doing, and you’re recognizing that you can do this. That you’ve always had this quality about you that could do this.
The unusual thing about this is it’s a Catch-22. The teacher is in the outer. In other words, all the others that you see that are doing it, and the others that you liken to as individuals, or as a group, are actually a functionality of the outer that everything in life is breathing this one quality. And that it is this one quality that you’re coming to recognize that you have inside of yourself.
In other words, this is an odd kind of way of saying this to yourself. In other words, like you’re creating the image as if there are other people that do this, and that you suddenly realize that this is something that you’re able to do, that you recognize. Actually that’s still keeping it as a duality. But when you take the duality out, you realize that everything around you is doing this, is breathing in this particular vibrational way.
It all has a note that undulates through life, and that you can find that, and channel that, and be at home with that, and in tune with that, yourself. It’s a type of understanding that you need to catch up with because the vibration is all around you in life, and that you have separated yourself from it. And so, in the dream, you’re acting like you’re recognizing that it’s supported somehow or another, in terms of others that are in the scenario, and that you can do this yourself, and perhaps do it better.
In any event, you’re evaluating how it is that you are in relationship to this. It’s slightly off in that the thing that is teaching is life itself, and it is showing that it is carrying this singular one-mindedness of an energetic of breath that permeates everything, and that you are coming to find out that you are correlated with that.
So it’s tricky. In other words, the duality mind is having you looking at this as if others are doing it and that you are finding that you can do it as well or better, or however you want to contemplate that. And instead, what is actually going on, is that all of the world has been doing this and that you have been holding yourself off as separate, and then are coming to find out that you have a recognition of this sort of thing, and that discovery that you have this recognition of this sort of thing, you’re taking as some sort of epiphany about yourself. But the thing is, is it’s like waking up out of a trance. What is really going on is the whole world is breathing in this fashion. This whole world is alive in this fashion.
This is the atonement that is permeating in everything that there is, and that you are coming to recognize that you are a part of that. You’re not distinguished in some fashion from that. You are part of that. So all of the others in the group, and all of that that you’re talking about, is the wholeness or the overallness, to which you are awakening to find yourself to be a component of that. Isn’t that interesting how that turns?
