Often in dreams we look at the action taking place in the sequence of images and assume that they are telling us specifically about the subjects they describe, whether it involves some people we know, or it is happening in places we go. But that’s not necessarily the point of the dream. And we can apply this same criteria to our daily life: is what is unfolding about the specific things we see happening before our eyes? Or is what is happening pointing us to a much greater, and deeper, meaning? The answer to these questions will make all the difference. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In this dream there are two things that happen that are somewhat overlapping. And, initially, it’s like I’m contacted by someone I had dated in the past, that had left, and he was from another country. It was like people had tried to keep us apart on some level, too, but then he disappeared.
Well he comes back into my life; then I think he disappears again. And someone else that I had gone out with, from another country, shows up and wants to get serious. And he’s left for awhile, and then I see a woman that I used to work with that led seminars and things, and she’s in town leading a seminar. I just see her. We kind of make eye contact, and then she’s gone.
And I’ve gone into a room, and as I go into the room and I look at the far end of the room where there’s windows, I notice some people who have kind of almost hung upside down so I’ll see them looking through the window. They must be up on the roof, but can turn around and look. I go over to see what it is that they’re looking at me for, and one of them must stand up, or they break away, and they come around and they come into the room where I am and they hand me a flyer that the lady I had seen go by, she’s coming back into town to do a one-day seminar, and she wants make contact with me.
And then another woman that was involved with leading seminars comes, and she has me come over to her house, and I see she and her husband have just come into town like they have their luggage. And she wants me to meet with her and she tells me she’s designing a seminar, all about cocaine, actually, maybe how to help people not use cocaine or whatever. She already has 300 and some points written down, but she wants my feedback on some thoughts about what to put in the seminar.
And then she suddenly changes the subject and wants to know what I’m doing about these relationships. And I explain to her that one of them is someone I had gone out with a long time ago, but then they just disappeared in the dream world, but the other one has come back but I’m not sure anybody wants me to be involved with him because my family probably wouldn’t like me leaving, you know, not stay in the country.
John: The dream is easy to understand, but you have to let go of all of that back and forth-ism, and all of the dynamics of that back and forth-ism, in a literal sense, because that is very dumbed down and external, and not what is going on in terms of the vibration within that is trying to wake up with inside of you.
First of all, you have a sense of something, but a sense of something that’s like being pulled forward, something that you awaken up to, something that is more like an in-breath, and so there’s vague memory and such of that.
But at some particular point in time, that journey switches, and then there’s the out-breath where there’s the coming down into life, and how that needs to awaken. You do this over and over again, trying to catch up with something that you can’t remember except in an inner way. And then in an attempt to bring it through or bring it back into something that you can put your fingers on, or sink your teeth into. And you repeat this three or four times in your dream, this kind of reverb. It’s a vibrational thing, and it has this imagery that’s like dream things that are going on – but it’s the imagery that you could dwell on that can keep you from catching up with the energetic that is behind it.
Now why is this energetic, that is behind it, important? Well, it has to do with how things awaken. The energetic is used differently, or functions in a slightly different way, up and down functions slightly differently. An up sensation of vibration is where something is pulling you to a deeper depth within, and in that being pulled to a deeper depth within, you have to contend with amnesia, and something of the past, and how do you remember it and what does that mean.
And then when you bring the energy back into life, instead of something pulling you up, you now are holding the hand of that and coming down into life. And as you’re coming down into life you’re creating noticeability. And so, how do you do that?
Whenever you come down into life, which is now like the out-breath of something, from the past, of an energetic that you rose up into in terms of a kind of inner consciousness. Now when you bring that back down into life you, now have to contend with what that is about, and great care has to be taken to do that process because you’re now coming down. Instead, you were going up, and therefore being guided up, and going into another zone in terms of the going up – to which that’s got a sensation of being a forgotten memory, or in the past or something. But then when you’re coming down into life, it’s like you’re now facing it again, maybe not that issue per se, because again that’s what creates the confusion in terms of the dream.
Those issues are not the issues. It’s the vibrational movement of energy that is what is being described here. So when you’re coming down into life again, it’s almost as if you, in terms of a structure of being of self, is coming with a kind of ego quality or something that is held maybe by the innerness, but is still taking the steps.
So you have to kind of look at it a little bit like this: When you’re going in a consciousness you have a guidance that’s like pulling you along. And so you’re going into a depth that lacks a memory. That’s the in-breath. When you’re coming down into the consciousness, back into the consciousness, returning back into the world, having to contend with things that have to be sorted out and dealt with, and that it is your nature to have to sort this out and to deal with it, it’s like you have to hold the hand of the innerness, but you are now leading the way with a quality of ego or nature that is coming down. And so you do this over and over and over again, three or four times in your dream. That’s the flow of energy.
It’s really easy to get caught in the storyline, and think that you need to make something out of the storyline. But, no, the storyline is just there to cause you to kind of come to grips with what lies behind the storyline, which is a dynamic, and to understand and zoom in on this dynamic, in other words, how it is that you’re to experience the innerness, and how that innerness affects you. And then how it is that you’re to experience the coming down into the outer, which has kind of an ego quality, or an effect upon things that are in the outer, and how it is that you have to hold the hand of something to keep the collateral damage, or to keep what is taking place in some sort of semblance. So when you’re coming into an outer there’s a semblance. When you’re going into the inner, there’s a letting go.
