We know that we have accumulated many psychologies and patterns in our process of living. So much of what we do when we seek to let go is to whittle ourselves back down to our true spiritual nature and essence. It is a never-ending process, but with each small victory of letting go we liberate more of who we truly are, and then can better sense what we can become. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In this dream, I seem to be about 18 or so, but I’m married, but I seem to live on something like an Indian Reservation. And because we’ve reached that age where you’ve graduated, then we get sent on to the next place. By we, I mean I have a husband already, or a partner of some kind, and the tribe gives us some kind of a test that decides where we go.
And we’re actually two of the brightest people in the school, so we’re going to be sent to a special place. So it’s almost like we go from that tribe to another tribe. When we get to the new tribe, it’s like I’m trying to find out how things work there because we’re not registering for school yet, or anything.
And, initially, the new people show me where the bathroom is, and I’m kind of surprised because it’s kind of a unisex bathroom and it makes me a little nervous to go there on my own because there’s this kind of a giant of a guy that seems to go into the building the same time I do. But even though you feel like he’s someone that could be a little crazy or dangerous, it feels like the women in the tribe nodded to him or something, and he just knows to behave himself.
Then I realize that they’re going to be looking at the test to assign us classes so that we know we’ll go from there. So, meanwhile, I’m just trying to figure out how things work in this new place.
And then the dream seems to shift a little because it feels like we’ve left there, and we’ve gone someplace in the mountains – feels almost more European now. And we’re checking out a place I think where we will be living when we go to school. But when we get there, there are actually three or four of us that are going there, it feels like in order to look at the rooms where we’ll be staying, which feel almost like they’re on a castle-type building with an elevator that goes up, the entrance to those rooms is separate for the men from the women.
So we have to separate and take different elevators, you go up kind of a curved stairway and then you take an elevator up. And at first I started to go with them, but then I realize that that’s the men’s side so then I go back and go up the other elevator. When I get up there, I see that these rooms are actually like very large rectangular rooms, and there do seem to be both men and women in them. The first one looks pretty messy and somebody’s sleeping, so then I go to look at the second one and there’s a guy there that’s totally willing to show me around. But I see that they have to kind of put the beds around this large rectangular room, and that’s what that’s like.
And then I seem to shift a little and I seem to be almost in the closet-type area, looking at anything that could be a desk to an altar and trying to decide what you’d place upon it. There’s something already there to the left, and maybe something in the middle, but on the right there are two little carved jade things, they might even be ducks or something, but they’re turned upside down. And I’m thinking about whether I turn them right side up or not, and that we’ll be using this more as a desk, you know, and that was when I woke up.
John: So the theme of the dreaming had to do with being able to let go of all kinds of aspects that you carry around, in terms of your nature, and we all carry around as if we’re possessed. It’s like we walk around, you might say possessed, or having a spirit energy, or spirit energies, that, so to speak, live or conduct themselves through us.
And that these energetics kind of depict and determine how it is that we move about and make decisions in terms of how it is that we feel ourselves. And that progresses to the point where instead of it being individualistic and from the standpoint of a quality of how you’re seeing yourself, so to speak, because these characteristics and traits dictate how you see yourself, you’re now trying to get from seeing yourself to feeling yourself.
So, initially, when it was something that was of a physical nature of yourself, you’re now going to a physical nature of the surroundings. So you’re looking at how it is that you feel about this being in the world, and that being in your world, and you’re orchestrating your ordination of things that way.
This way of trying to feel oneself is the maintaining of a state that doesn’t quite know how yet, or is ready, to let go. Because the theme of the dreaming had to do with the fact that a person needs to let go of everything. And we’ve heard it said that way and don’t realize what that means.
And so it’s interesting you started off like in a tribal setting because from a standpoint of relatability, in terms of the Indians, they have kind of a more earthy raw energy quality of themselves, in which they try to use, you might say, nature in order to expose the spells and the spirits that they carry. And so they go out and they actually have a very well-named word for what they’re doing: it’s called spirit questing. They still are, by and large, caught in a kind of learning to let go, or learning to have something finish up a flowing through them kind of dharma. So that’s the nature of the spirit questing.
