Making Curtains

Woman opening curtains in the roomOften in dream work we talk about lifting the veils to certain insights, inner truths, or awakenings. Yet, sometimes, we are still in the process of putting them up – here those veils appear in the form of curtains for a room – usually as a way to protect some sensitive inner place that is in danger of being brought out into the open. But in the unveiling of inner aspects we free ourselves up for something new; it is a letting go process that allows us to move forward. By understanding this, we can stop the hanging of the curtains before they are firmly in place.

Jeane: I had one dream in which I was at a house that belonged to my niece and I’m there with my sister. And there are also people there from a store where they make curtains. And my niece had asked me about what kind of curtains I guess she should put up in a guest room, and so I had an idea of exactly what type of curtains and I think I’d even talked to the people from the store and we’ve made some measurements

Well, then we go up to the room and now my niece has a different idea, like she’s going to put up I think yellow curtains of some kind. But then when we all get together, my niece has definitely made up her mind for a third kind of curtains, and she’s already going around and measuring for those. They’re more beige. 

I probably have a little bit the energy of like, sometimes you wonder why someone asks you what you think because they already have such definite ideas on what they’re going to do. Plus, I’d had some people from the store measure and I realize that my niece had also measured but she probably is not going to be able to complete them yet – maybe she has to wait until she has the money.

And then I’m wondering if maybe I should have them made up for her. I don’t know yet. I realize I have really fond memories of this guest room because I guess you and I had stayed there, and maybe, I don’t know for some reason, we made love on the stairs going up to them or something, and so I have good feelings about this room.

But I’m also wondering if I need to go look in the room and make any last measurements, or see what else maybe needs to be done, or ask her about it, but then I go and I open up the door into the room and I see my sister in there sleeping, so I just quietly shut the door to the room, like there’s nothing I can really do further right now. That was one dream.

John: The dream is about veils. You’re using curtains as your issue of veils, and veils are important. Veils are important in terms of protecting the consciousness, and at the same time they keep one from reaching a particular kind of awareness inside of themselves.

What you’re contemplating in your dream is the degree of the veils, which is an amazing and interesting approach, or at least seeing the distinguishment of the veils between one color veil versus another color veil, versus another color veil. And all of it is displacing a sequence of events, or creating a whole scenario of time unfoldment, which is the veils.

It’s as if something is meant to be remembered, or awakened, and so the consequence of these veils is the distinguishing, or determining, or dividing factor in terms of how something is to transition. It’s interesting that you look at it as a standpoint of veils.
