A Precursor

In dreams, food is an excellent representation for energy because, just like animals forage all day long filling up on what they like to eat, we can say the same about the energies we seek. If we like a place, it is usually as much about the feeling of it as it is about the look of it. If we like a person, we are attracted by how their energy makes us feel, not just what they say or do. And music or movies provide a certain energetic food for us in a certain moment – that’s why no food, music, or movie is satisfying all the time. We are constantly seeking our next energetic food. Well, higher energies are doing the same thing, so we have to make ourselves, by our thoughts, our intentions, and our actions, an excellent food for what we are trying to attract.

Jeane: I wish I remembered the detail better, but the first dream I feel like I’m with another woman, and there’s a situation with maybe another person we’re holding together, and we’re waiting for you to come.

And when you come at that point with the situation we’re holding together, and it seems to involve another person, I can transfer the energy, or the person or something, over to you, maybe. I can hold it together because I have a master’s degree, I remember that.

And then there’s something that you have that when you come we’re able to do the transfer, but I remember I wasn’t sure it would work until you came. And that’s all I remember about it. It was kind of like just about some dynamic that I wasn’t sure was going to work until we did it.

Then I didn’t have another dream, until just a few minutes ago, and in that dream it feels like we’ve been exploring an area, like Yellowstone, and you and I have come and we’ve gone to the park and we had gone seeking out all these different waterfalls and places, and even one where you had to go climb way down and find waters and find places that we weren’t even sure were going to be there, or we could get to, and discover what was there.

And then we had gone back to a central location where we’re having a lot of family, or people, for dinner, but we’re having an outdoor dinner so we have to kind of go back and forth with the way that we’re cooking it – and it’s a little haphazard.

I might like suddenly realize that there’s still something I have to go back and get, a certain dish, and then I’ll suddenly discover there’s another outdoor oven that other people have cooked something in, or we need to put those things on the table.

And there’s a man at the table that I realize just kind of wants traditional food, maybe not just all the different things we have, but what he’s most interested in he’s interested in the place that we had hiked to, the one with the waterfall, or some water in it, that had been hard to get to.

And I told him that I didn’t really know how to describe it to him, that I couldn’t remember the name of it, but it’s almost like you and I would have to get out a book that told all about Yellowstone and go through there, and maybe we could locate the name of it. And I’m kind of looking to you to see if you remember what it was called. Maybe that was when I woke up.

John: Well both dreams are attempting to do the same thing except for the second dream you’re putting in more components on top. What you’re basically trying to do is you’re trying to get outside of a set mode and recognize the existence of some other quality, or level, inside your nature that is there to be discovered.

And, in the second dream, it goes in stages, meaning that there’s like little steps that kind of open up. In other words, first you’re in a scenario in which something is out of the usual, or out of the norm, in terms of appreciation for discovery purposes, like Yellowstone.

And then what happens is that you come to realize that there is kind of a different food element that is there. In the first dream, you just had the basic element. You didn’t take it to the next step. In the first dream you kind of came up to this point where there’s something more – like a different food or something like that.

In this dream, you then projected that then into a quality of where there is even more to be taken in, that relieves you of the effort, because the first dream and up to this particular point, well, it was all an arduous process where whatever and however it was that you were attempting to do something still seemed to be sleeped out in a type of density that you weren’t able to quite break through, and so it all felt awkward.

In this dream there was a little more buoyancy to the whole thing, almost as if you were more in the environment of something able to come through. And then, when it did come through, what it was that you were seeking to find, the vibration of that came through, too, and it was represented in the dream by this guy being interested in something else in regards to Yellowstone that everything else was just kind of a buildup to.

Now the thing to look at is the vibration between the first dream, that got up to a particular point, and the vibration in the second dream that got up to the same particular point – and the subtle difference. The subtle difference is that something was needing to snap or break in the second dream, in which something more could come sweeping in.

And then the thing is to identify what it was, and what it felt like, when this something more came sweeping in. In other words, where this guy causes one to kind of do a knee jerk realization, that it’s not what one is doing in that setting that’s important, it’s what is able to open up in the setting, where he’s able to go back to something.

To notice, as soon as he identifies that there’s something so much more there, to recognize what that does to how it is that you feel yourself. And the thing to notice is where you feel that, as well.

And, in the first dream, things didn’t quite break through, so your breath was shallower and, as a consequence, choked. You couldn’t quite get it to flow. In the second dream something broke through and, when it broke through, your breath opened up.

And so the consequences of the second dream is that your spatiality, in terms of your overallness and what you could hold onto in life, had taken on a greater dimensionality. And that was experienced in terms of the way and a quality in which the heart opened up.

Everything’s always continuously a precursor to something, so the fact that the heart opened up, and that you were able to breathe more freely – where does this go, and what does this denote in terms of catching up with a greater and greater overallness?
