There are few things as mundane as socks, so when your dream offers you a magical portal that only delivers socks, socks, and more socks it can seem pretty disappointing. But we have to sift our way through the mundane to find what is valuable – it isn’t always going to just appear before us, we have to work for it. Eventually, as in this dream, a gold ring is discovered hidden in a sock, and it offers an even greater release from the mundane. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: I only remember my last dream clearly. And, in this dream, I’ve gone into a room, and in the room is a bed. And right next to the bed is a cupboard that you reach into – it has a couple layers of shelves. And then there seems to be a hole in the top of the cupboard that goes somewhere else, into a room where, apparently, there’s things that belong to me.
Because if I pound on the cupboard once, then some socks fall down through that hole, and I pick up the socks and I put them on the bed. And maybe one or two garments fall through at some point, as well.
And I feel like I’m working against some deadline. And I’m looking for something that I know is evidence. I also feel like if anyone comes in and interrupts me, then maybe I won’t get through this. And, of course, every time I pound on that hole, what falls through is more socks, different kinds and colors of socks, and I’m taking them and I’m organizing them on the bed because I’m realizing I have way too many socks. And they’re all different colors and patterns and I’m going to have to do something with them – but at the same time I know there’s something else that I’m looking for, but every time I reach up and pound on the hole once what falls through is more socks.
And I can feel like someone’s coming, so there’s an urgency because I need to finish this. And I know I’m looking for something. So as I’m getting near what I guess what must have to be the end, because lord knows there’s enough socks piled up by now, one sock falls through and I feel like it has something hard in it. It’s concealing something. But I have to pound again to make sure I’ve got everything out.
And then after I’ve put everything in their proper piles, then I take the sock that has something in it and I open it up, and it feels like someone I know comes into the room right then, and what it is is a little ring box. And I open it up and I take out this ring, and it’s a gold mesh ring, almost looks like an earring, it’s curved in a spiral. And inside it is carved out of gold this face and something else.
And the other person that’s come into the room comes over with me and we’re staring at this, trying to figure out what it represents. And I realize what it represents, finally, is apparently at some point in the past year there had been a murder, and I know that this is some evidence in that murder that will identify. It will do one of two things. It either identifies who committed the murder, then if I’m looking at it in a certain way I know it’s one of the two women involved. Or it’s telling me that one of the two women involved in that has actually switched identities. I’m not sure which it is the ring is telling me, but I know it’s one of those two things that this ring, in that way, will prove something about what happened there.
John: So the theme of the dreaming involves the accessing, inside of oneself, of the stillness that permeates everything that there is. That’s the over the top aspect of where things are going.
And, in your dream, what you’re doing is noting that you have a particular channel that’s kind of opened up, in which you’re able to function in a myriad of ways in terms of a type of partial access, an access that enables you to go through things. And it appears to be a type of going through things in which it isn’t all veiled, totally veiled – like it can be for most people – but it isn’t the overall total stillness itself, either. It’s just a glimpse, within, that you have an access or connection to, and you have it from some sort of inner aspect of your beingness, your bedroom, the quality that depicts a letting go into something more.
The thing about it is getting this access to open up more, because it seems like you’re realizing that you have a demeanor, a quality, that you have perfected, that’s to the point where something much much more. In other words, it’s a wonderful access that enables you to function well in life because you have this magical quality, or whatever, that can do and reach like this. However, something is insufficient about it because that same old, same old has come to a point where something much, much more needs to open up. In other words, something about what you’re doing is keeping that something more from opening up.
And so it’s like you’re kind of raising the issue that enough is enough, and that this needs to break out more. And veiled in the journey, the stepping, the walking, and the socks are an aspect somewhere on the in-breath connection towards the stillness, to a point where it actually touches the stillness to some small degree, veiled in that, or within one of the socks, is the deeper depth. And it’s portrayed as a ring.
The way that you look at the ring, however, is you get information in terms of what you’re doing to your heart, or self, to cause you to remain veiled from an access, and a connection, that opens up more than just that of a certain kind of really limited, rooted, sock-like way that currently prevails.
The sensation that comes from this ring is meant to be twofold, but is still veiled. In other words, the ring, in its ideal, would represent kind of like having made the journey, having taken and suddenly gone, okay, enough is enough, and, poof, all of a sudden it all drops and you’re in the stillness. The ring would represent that in its ideal.
However the ring, for you, represents where there is still some mystery or conundrum that is in need of being sorted out, in which something has gotten hurt, or injured, and you’re wrestling with what it is that that can be, or is still possibly; the answer, or the resolution. And that is an aspect, then, that is a projection, and a holding onto, that keeps the overall stillness from just naturally being there.
Because enough is enough in terms of a certain quality that you’re able to peek behind the door, or pull something through, or whatever. Enough is enough of that, is what you’re pretty much saying, and it’s time to break out of that completely. The ring certainly agrees that enough is enough, but it’s veiled because you have this other motif yet, that still is holding on to your attention. And that holding on has a particular vibration to it, and that vibration is reflected back to you, on a sensation level, based upon those conclusions that you drew, which slam, or punish, and shut down the wholeness of the heart.
