Our dreams need to communicate to us in images that we can relate to: homes, families, cars, mountains, oceans, animals, and even pets. These are all things we are familiar with from our life experience, so our subconscious uses them as symbolism for our inner relationships, the way certain aspects or psychologies behave in relationship to the part of us that is mostly in control. Once we understand this means of communication, our dreams can tell us so much about who we are, and who we are trying to become.

Jeane: I just remember my last dream. And, in this last dream, I’m at my parents’ house, they’re not there. It feels like my sister and I and some other people are helping clear out the house.
For some reason, my sister and these other two people, and they have a couple big dogs, we’ve got it to where they’re out sleeping in the driveway right now. And I’m in cleaning up some of the rest of the house. And suddenly I remember that the little dog that belongs to my parents, who’s really kind of old and on its last legs, that I took outside, that I haven’t seen it for several days.
So I go out into the driveway where I took the dog, and as I’m walking out there, as I come to the last room in the house, I notice that there’s some little piles of dirt I have to step around. And then I go outside into the driveway where they’ve all been sleeping. And at first I don’t see the dog. And I think maybe the dog’s died and we don’t even know it.
And then my sister and I go over and I find a little place where I’d kind of made a little blanket or something where I’d propped up the dog. Well, right before that I remember that I got on the bed they were all on, and one of the German shepherds that the guests had didn’t recognize me at first and grabbed my hand in his mouth. But then the dog seemed to recognize me and let go.
And then my sister and I go over to where we have placed my folk’s dog. My folk’s dog is really old and it’s almost like some of its body parts have fallen off; it can’t walk anymore. I go over though, and I place my hand on its chest and still can feel a little heartbeat. So I feel like it’s heart wants to beat until my mother, or my parents, come back.
So it’s just waiting for that, even though it doesn’t have most of the rest of its body parts. So I just kind of am listening to his little heartbeat when I wake up.
John: It’s a peculiar dream in terms of how its energetic motif is that of causing you to recognize your intertwinement with all these different parts of yourself.
You start off in your parents’ house where you’re trying to get yourself redeemed from whatever it is that still is a complex in some fashion that keeps you from being free. It is said that offspring have complexes in regards to their parents, because their parents, in terms of what they did to cause them to grow up, inadvertently created energetic effects – a type of spell, you might say, that affected, couldn’t help but affect, because in a roundabout way to the degree to which the parents are clean, the children become something of a reflection of them. And it can even reflect ill-quality mannerisms.
Instead, the parents should be and are meant to see themselves and their children so that they leave the children free. But who can do that? And, simultaneously, this is passed on down. In other words, if a person has had an afflicted upbringing, they propound that affliction into the environment that they are in.
Well, that’s the psychological way that it works. What you’re doing in your dream, that is a cute way of doing it, is you’re just kind of having to notice that you’re in all of these things. You can be in all of these parts in everything that is around you, then you could drop the personal kind of spellbinding me, myself, and I afflictions of things, because you then start pulling for an intertwined whole.
So instead of sitting in a paradigm in which you’re an octave of your parents, and their wounded conditions that have created something that doesn’t have a life, leaves you not able to have a proper unfoldment. In other words, you’re not fully able to be in an overallness, you’re bifurcated in some fashion.
What this then does is it takes the condition and it throws the condition into everything that you look at. In other words, if you go outside of the house, or outside from these conditions into a greater overallness, you will find other parts out there of yourself.
The process of evolvement has a person growing up and then going out into the world on their own. So what they find is their friends, and you’ve done a double octave of friend, you have had the friend who is outside of the house, plus the friend’s dog, what you find as a friend or as a way of life for yourself outside is better than perhaps what it took for you to grow up.
So that dog has more aliveness, so to speak, than the dog of your parents. However, that’s only because you’re under a type of spell. All of it is you, you took on a spell that was like buying into a misconception of what is actually going on, that you are able to, and are meant to be able to, relate to a greater overallness that is outside of your personal self. The dream indicates that you are recognizing the importance of this by the fact that you are noticing the heartbeat of the dog, the parents’ dog.
