Higher energy is often shown in dreams as some form of money, which is a good analogy for the process of learning to be with higher things. We have all heard the stories of lottery winners going off the rails with their newfound wealth, and that’s because they are unable to ground that kind of “energy” in their being; they can’t control it, so it controls them. This dream shows that scenario in a different way, but the principle is the same: more energy just powers who we are, so if we don’t have solid inner principles, our weaknesses will be powered and we will spiral out of control.

Jeane: So, in this dream, I’m like the lady that’s the secretary of state on the Madam Secretary TV program. So I’m her, and so I’m newly elected in office, and sometimes in addition to everything that the work demands of me I have to go out and campaign.

Well, in the process of going out and campaigning on my own, I guess I had gone into this one store run by these guys who are having a pretty good time and partying. There’s something about them I like, but I never tell my actual staff, or people at home, or anyone that I’m starting to spend some time with them. It’s almost like I act like I’m going out shopping, but then I go visit these guys who are always partying.

Well, as I come back to the office, that even though I bring back some shopping, I suddenly notice, for instance, that there’s a spike hammer hidden in one wall, and so in spite of the fact that maybe people are going to figure out what I’m doing, now I’m sneaking over to these guys’ houses when they’re partying, maybe I’m even drinking.

And there are people that are beginning to come to visit them, or spy on them, and their house is even shut down one time because it has bugs or something, has an inspection notice on the door. So I’m sneaking in a window to see them. And I know things are out of control, but it feels like I can’t seem to stop myself.

And then I have a boyfriend that comes and visits me, but it feels like I can’t make love with him because I’m feeling too shut down, physically, and I don’t have any control over it. And then there are people that are spying on me, and I know that everything will come out at some point, but, again, I can’t seem to stop how I’m behaving. So everything just feels out of control, and I think that was when the phone rang and I woke up.

John: Well, the thing that you’re going over, and over and over again, is kind of a sensation that something is affecting how it is that you’re able to experience things.

In other words, in a real open state you can experience all kinds of more things than you normally would experience, and you would then be taking into account a greater, and greater, and greater wholeness. And that what you’re contending with is, as you look at that wholeness, you’re contending with how it is that you can control it, or contain it, package it, hold onto it.

And to the degree to which you look at the variables that are happening in a greater context way, and attempt to put them within parameters, is the degree to which you then hurt your heart. And so what the dream is saying is, the dream is saying that what is lacking here is your inability to take this greater overall wholeness, which is more like in the plane of light, and grounding it.

In other words, taking it down into the center of a wholeness, of the Earth quality. And that the dream is indicating that you are affected by this kind of quickened energy, and that it is keeping you from being your natural self, which is grounded. That’s why you can’t make love, or something like that, is because you’re finding yourself affected by more.

Now what is it pointing to? There is one way that enables you to handle this greater overall moreness, and letting go, and that is the quality that magnetizes it and puts it into a vibration like the dhikr. When you’re doing that, you can’t be thinking, and pondering, and looking this way and looking that way, and yet at the same time, when you’re in that, you’re in a greater vibration, more like a light energy, and thus you’re able to take into account more that’s going on – without having to necessarily think about it. The images, the inflections, just come to you naturally.

There’s a certain flushness, or highness, that you feel when it just comes to you naturally. And there is a certain cluttered awkwardness, or tightness, that you feel when you’re all bound up trying to sort something out, trying to understand something, trying to make something happen.

So it’s a roundabout way of you pointing out, to yourself, that the way that you are, and the condition to the way that you’re carrying yourself, is a condition that you’re coming to find is stifling. You know, you can’t expand out, you can’t contract back. What is needed is a greater magnetizing of yourself in a grounded capacity way, and the magnifying, the magnetizing that you’re doing is of kind of a greater overallness, a greater oneness, or the light energy.

That was a complicated dream. I almost wasn’t sure if I could get to it.
