Drifting Away

We’ve seen in recent dreams how the ability to zig and zag, or to keep a motion and flow, prevents being stuck or locked into a situation. Another way to think of this is, if we stay in one place (in ourselves) long enough, dust will begin to gather; everything thrives better with a circulation of energies moving about. For some of us this is more natural than others, and our dreams can show us which character type we are. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So this next dream involves you directly. In this dream, you and I have parked in front of a store. In other words, this is a store that is open normally in the daytime, and it’s nighttime. And so it’s after hours for this store to be operating, and you get out to go into a supermarket or something, and I stay in the car and wait for you to do what you got to do and to come back.

Suddenly, there’s movement in this store. In other words, the store has decided to take advantage of this area where all kinds of people come at this hour of the night. They mill around, it’s nice outside and whatnot. So they start doing these antics behind the illusion of this glass to try to get people’s attention. But I just ignore it. I just wait for you to finish whatever you’re doing in the nearby supermarket store. 

Suddenly, a guy comes out and gets on a loudspeaker and says that his runners are going to round people up. And they’re going to get on all of these buses, and there is bus after bus arriving now and stopping; they’re going to round everybody up and they’re going to transport them all to some other area. 

Well, it makes sense to him to do that, but I see no reason. I’m fine where I’m at, you’re getting what needs to be gotten, and when you come out, we leave. So to avoid being disturbed, I decide to drive around, thus making myself unapproachable. And instead of the car, now, it’s a motorcycle. And a motorcycle can kind of go this way, and that way. It doesn’t have to just stay on a given street. 

And I start off thinking I’ll go around the block. But, no, if I go around the block, I might miss you, plus this is a big block and it’s very cut up and very strange. It’s dark out, I could get lost. Plus, I don’t feel that I know the area that well. So I feel I have to be careful. So I just try to take the bike, avoiding people and whatnot. I just try to do that waiting for you to pop out of the store. 

Suddenly you come out and you’re baffled. You can’t see where I’m at. I try to wave, you don’t see. And, for some reason, I am not coming out from where I’m at to greet you, to pick you up. And you’re starting to turn around now. I’m acting like, if I move I will be found out, and so I’m frozen. 

So the dream is about drifting away; it has to do with being able to zig and zag. But I don’t know how to do that, in terms of waiting, to keep something from affecting something too overly much. And so it’s not something I know how to do very well. So a focus, attention and flow that is going on around me, but I don’t relate to – and I’m not willing to be affected by – yet I am affected because I don’t have the ability to zig and zag.
