Have you noticed that dreams almost always have some aspect of travel in them? It can be in a vehicle, or on foot, with others or alone, but we always seem to be going somewhere, or trying to get somewhere. And that should tell us something about our unconscious processes that understand that we are on a journey all the days of our lives, and our dream images offer a road map, and guidance, and rest stops, and helpful hints for this journey all along the way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In my first dream it’s like I’ve gone back to New York and, in outer reality in New York, there’s a couple that had personal growth seminars, I used to help organize, that I had a falling out with.
And, in the dream, I’ve gone back to visit them, and I even go in and they’re beginning to organize seminars again, and I just kind of sit with them, and watch, or visit a little, and then I leave. And you and I are together, and we come out west, and first we’re traveling around west, maybe we’ve stopped a bit in California.
And then the woman shows up. She was under the impression that we were going to go to San Diego and organize for them again, or I was. And I explained, no, you know, we’re not getting re-involved or any of that, and we’re actually going to the Northwest, we have just been visiting. But she leaves, and I see that after she leaves that what she had done is she had left on the table some envelopes, and one was from her husband, and the other was from her, and it was the income they had received for the seminar they had just run in New York.
John: The dream is very cryptic in that you use New York as an example of taking a kind of step back, but it’s not the kind of step back that goes into such a denseness that you aren’t able to notice, or to watch, or to see in some capacity what is going on.
So the idea of going back to New York to take in something that is a seminar, in relationship to something in the past, is not a whole lot different than having to be in manifestation in which there are the ideas of life, of mankind, that are being perpetrated upon the whole.
You realize that things have to be put into a motion where there can be an unfoldment, instead of a manipulation based upon the ideals of something that had come up by the way and mannerisms of the powers that be, or of something that is established, or appears to be established as having entered into manifestation in this regard – by traveling to the west. And in such a journey you’re moving towards the completion of a process, and you’re utilizing some of the principles… In other words, you’re just not bambling about in life, you’re utilizing some of the principles of an aspect of an inner beingness because you’re also, in going to the west, you’re going the north, as well.
And the north is the spiritual center. It’s not going to the southwest, which is a delving into the crux of things. It’s nice to be able to go to the southwest where you delve into the crux of things, but that’s not something everybody dare try do. Sometimes you have to take and go a little bit towards just trying to awaken something, as well as journey along, and not necessarily have to do something which the southwest would have be implying.
So what your dream is doing is it’s giving you information in terms of what is going on in relationship to what can seem rather bewildering – in terms of a day-to-day, up and down – and it’s giving you this information almost from an overall kind of perspective of things.
The difference between this dream is again it has an overallness because I’m looking at the idiosyncrasies unfolding. That perspective, as I come to see it, is almost as if something is looking down, or coming through, as a counterbalancing awakening, when in your case it’s just an orientation, it’s just an atmosphere change, going from something that is projected in the east of one’s past.
Now what’s interesting, too, is your approach. This approach seems to know how to handle things with greater dexterity than the approach of how I’m looking at it, which seems to incur more of a direct impact in terms of how things are, and thus hits levels of pain. In your particular case, in an overallness you kind of have an overall sense of what isn’t right, and move, and adjust, accordingly – without having the specifics of the impact to have to contend with.
