We all know the story of the snake-oil salesman with the healing elixir, and every day we hear about some new item that will cure everything and change our life. But, in reality, there isn’t one thing. As humans, we are a multiplicity, and a balanced diet includes the right kind of energetic foods. Said another way, we don’t want to lock ourselves in to any pattern or limitation in our processes. If we do so consciously, we can assay the energies we are dealing with on the move, only then deciding to let them go or keep the connection. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So, in my second dream, there’s a young man and a young woman. And they meet, almost like at something like a fair grounds, or at least a place where groups of people have come, because each of them, especially the woman, I think the woman is there with her family, she seems to be helping her family promote the selling of some product. And it’s a product that maybe has helped her become healthy after having been ill.
And you have the sense that maybe the young man had done something similar. Well, they meet and they’re attracted. And he even does something to show her that he really likes her by bringing her something, I think it was either a rainbow trout, or a salmon, or some kind of food. But she’s really not able to receive it because her family immediately begins taking her away to go somewhere else, to, again, be promoting something that she’s selling that makes you healthier.
And so then he begins observing this process and realizes that what had maybe begun as something that they were doing to become healthier, the families are now making their whole living off this. It’s like they even travel in a sleigh, and the kid is with them, and maybe he’s in a similar situation that mirrors it. And then they developed a food that they’re selling at these fairs and other places that supports the whole family now.
But, because of this, they try to keep her and him separate because now the whole family’s making a living off of something that was initially supposed to get one person healthier. And they don’t want that person to form a relationship or do anything that would cause them to go off from this process.
So he’s kind of trying to break that cycle now, to kind of make a connection with her because it feels like she and he don’t even particularly like the food anymore. And they’re realizing the families, this is like becoming a way of life, and they want to break away from it. But you don’t know whether they can, or not, because I wake up.
John: So you’re staying completely on theme to what the issue is, which has to do with things that wake up or open up, and that you’re using this in kind of a tale, a fairy tale, way in which you have qualities of perceptions of what is the energetic, or food of life, that one needs to partake of?
And that the whole thing kind of starts off with the fact that the influence of the environment, or in this case the family environment, is such that it is indicating what food is to be projected as meaningful. Thus, you can have these barriers or gaps in life in terms of the fact that things have been screened in a certain capacity so that you only experience a certain quality or sense of food, up to a certain particular degree, to which you don’t waver.
But you’re realizing that instead of there being a demarcation line in life, in that regard, you’ve come to realize that there should be a fascination, instead – the flip side. In other words, in Sufism, for example, one of the practices is to take something that you really don’t like and learn to accept it or embrace it, and bring it close to yourself. Because if you take something that you don’t like and are unable to bring it close to yourself, then something gets lost.
Or, in terms of like, for example, the practices that the Chistis were just going through, is that you deny yourself a certain thing, like a certain food, or certain habits that you’ve come to appreciate as being meaningful, that you use for yourself to, somehow or another, these patterns are something that you just find and see for yourself as important. You take a position in which you refrain from that, you deny that, you shut that down for a while and see how it is that you cope when you are not able to be like this.
In other words, these are practices where you go out of your way to play with this. This is not what you’re doing, though, in the dream. Instead, what you’re noticing in the dream is that the deeper truth behind the idea, which is the concept of coming to love thy neighbor as thyself, that you come to recognize, and have developed a fascination, and a greater part of your beingness is able to come together.
And then you use, for your image purposes, the quality of masculine and feminine when you can take two distinct types of societal development and bring them together. And you find out that when you bring that together, and then you incorporate the idea of rainbow trout, or wherever, rainbow being the colors of life, that the colors of life can open up when things are able to co-mingle and intertwine.
It eventually came across didn’t it, in the end, where this actually bridged a barrier, you being the person who was bridging a barrier between the two sides that way? By breaking away from families you’re using the breaking away in a different octave, in which that which is one way, in a family mannerism, you are breaking that. You ultimately end up pulling a particular sight and awareness together.
