Sewn Together

w_nesIt’s been said that to make a spiritual journey is to learn to live according to the rules of the universe, rather that according to human-made rules. And the same applies to understanding our dreams. In this dream image, we see a group of people taking credit for something they didn’t create. In our created culture, that’s against the rules. But our dreams aren’t viewing things from that perspective, they’re showing us how we separate ourselves from the wholeness of things, from the quilt of life, and separate ourselves even within our own selves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So in this next dream it has some shifts in it. In this dream I’m in a long, low building, almost like a school building in a way, in terms of how it’s built, lots of rooms but a couple different levels.

And I’m there because there’s going to be a fundraiser, and there’s going to be an auctioning off of some quilts that some women have made. And I’m helping to finish the quilts because, when you make quilts, usually you sew them together and then they put some batting or something in them, but they have to be finished by the two sides being tied together, or stitched together. That’s sometimes done my hand, so I’m helping finish the quilts so they’ll be ready for auction.

There’s one woman’s quilts in particular that I’m finishing. She has a series of quilts, and some of them are going to get completed by the time of the auction, and some won’t be done but we’ll take them in anyway. At one point I leave the room where I’ve been working, or where they’re going to be auctioned, and I’ve gone down to a bathroom – and this is almost like a school building that’s got a long bathroom with a series of stalls, and several women and I have gone down. But the lights aren’t on in the room.

And so when I go into a bathroom stall I can’t tell whether it’s plugged up, or it’s flushed, or what the scene is, and I can tell other people are having the same problem. So I kind of reach out to flush the toilet, hoping that it’s not going to flood, because I can’t see what the situation is. And I try to get the light on my cell phone to work; I know I have a flashlight attachment somewhere, but it won’t seem to work in this room, either. But I think somebody says something reassuring, and I realize we just have to move on.

And I go from that room into the room where the woman who made my quilts is and there are still some quilts she’s putting together there. And then the other odd thing in that room is there’s this bat flying around, and it’s quite a large bat, and it’s landed on the person next to me and she wants me to feed the bat. The bat spreads its wings out and stuff, but I keep trying to avoid the bat because I find it kind of scary. And she keeps trying to show me that it’s actually quite harmless, even though it has these sharp teeth and stuff.

Even though it’s landing on the person next to me, or on the quilt next to me, still I find it pretty intimidating even though they keep showing me how they feed it. I don’t seem to want to touch the bat.

And then it’s time to go into sell the quilts, even though they’re not completely done. I help her carry them in, and some people who have finished the quilts it’s like they present the quilts as though they’re their own, but I want the quilts presented so it’s clear that people know that she made them. I think that’s where the dream ends.

John: For a while there I thought you were advancing the theme beyond, into a place where I never advanced it, which means a recognition of a connection that goes along with being able to hold onto a place that is in keeping with something that is naturally opening up as part of your being, that you’re born with.

In other words, the way I likened the difference is the difference, it’s the difference between following a principle of a good righteous person, who follows their heart, and adheres to what they have come to understand based upon the outer and their understanding of the outer. And they don’t have much of a depth of an understanding of the inner, but they can develop pretty good principles, and then they come from an aspect of their heart.

And that can lead up to a particular kind of development that only can go so far, but at some point it can be cracked or broken, in terms of the heart, and then something will compromise. That’s the limitation of that kind of consciousness.

And then there’s the kind of consciousness that you were describing, that the judges had. Now you didn’t describe the first consciousness, but the consciousness that the judges have, in your first dream, was the type of consciousness where it was natural to them. It was kind of like they were born with it. Others still struggled, but they had what it took imbedded in their nature and so they could manifest something that could affect life.

So, when you started on the next dream, it looked to me like you were going to be showing how much that means to be able to be like that, in terms of functionality in life, because you started off dealing with the quilt, and the quilt is a matrix of things, a design of things. And initially it was like you were going to intertwine these various quilts together, ways of sewing them together. And it looked like you were doing the process, and then once this was done this was just going to be released out into life, made available to life.

But then, somewhere along the line, it kind of got to the point where you didn’t quite really recognize this as something of yourself. Others who were working on the quilts, that did get them done, saw these quilts as theirs, meaning they didn’t disassociate and create it as something outside of themselves. They saw this as inside of themselves, but you didn’t quite see this as something that was part of yourself. You still felt that it had to do with a glorification, or qualification, of something else that was the main designer of the quilt – and that that’s where the credit needed to go, or something, and therefore that kind of deflection kept you from quite finishing the quilts, quite finishing what needed to be released into life.

And the reason is also provided in the dream, when you shifted and went into an area where you couldn’t flush a toilet, or do something without creating some other kind of condition, because you couldn’t quite see what you were doing. It didn’t quite come through. And because it didn’t quite come through, when you were in the quilt room it was like that battiness was still flying around. And those who understood what they were doing, and were able to put all of this together as themselves, and twine it together, were in the oneness in such a way so that they could then release that into the outer for all to enjoy and behold.

But, in your particular case, you still had to contend with something that was a little awry, or the bat, the battiness of things. And of course you were shown the reason why there is a battiness of things, in that you didn’t quite figure out how to access the means upon which to see what it was that was going on. You had it inside of you.

You, in the first dream, were amongst judges that were born with it and that this trait is a trait that you’re closing in on, but haven’t necessarily found. In other words, you have your predilections or something that keep you from quite making the quilt intertwined with other quilts, released to the outer, as an expression of yourself yet. You still haven’t quite made that step, but you do see that going on, which means that you’re in the process of that step because you do see completed quilts being made. But then you see the aspect of something that’s wayward, that’s got some little uneasiness connected to it, that’s associated with not quite being able to get some inflection to light up. You’re not quite able to turn the light on in the bathroom, and are unsure that what you’re doing isn’t going to create a big mess, if you’re not careful, because you can’t quite see what’s what.
