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.

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.

We have to love the creativity of our unconscious, always creating images that tell us a story about ourselves – some more obvious than others – drawn from the pages of our experience. Here we begin with someone clinging to the dreamer’s back, wasting no time with abstractions. Then we progress the story in the next image where two parts of the dreamer are in line to get into a great feast. One part of the dreamer understands what is required for entry and drops the aspects that will prevent him. But, of course, the dreamer needs both parts of himself to attend, so there may still be work to be done. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So when I go to bed and come to sleep, the first image I have is that there’s a person on my back. And I’m kind of on a motorcycle, and I’m trying to get away from a situation that’s awkward. And so I’m just driving away as fast as possible getting out of the scenario. 

And I’m actually kind of shocked and surprised, but it’s not like I’m ducking and dodging and weaving. Those forces were pretty stirred up, you would have thought that someone would have thrown something, or shot, or whatever, and could have at least hit the passenger I’m carrying on my back. But they didn’t, and I seem to have gotten away. 

And then in another image, a person hands me a knife they are carrying. In other words, what had happened is there was this big line, and it was a line to get into this building or this place. And, inside there, there was wonderful food to eat. 

But in order to get inside, you apparently had to go through a bit of security. And so this guy knows better, and so I’m standing in line with him, and suddenly he reaches in his pocket, as if I’m somehow or another a person he has to account to, and he hands over a knife he has so that he can go inside of the building. In other words, he fesses up, or otherwise there’s a security or a barrier that would have turned him around. But he lets go voluntarily, and, in doing so, is able to go inside and partake of a wonderful feed therein. 

So the meaning of this is, these are dreams about letting go and being able to go where I haven’t been able to go before. The theme of the meditation dream has to do with a new way of being that had not been known to exist, at least for me, until now. One had obstacles, or something stood in the way in terms of concepts or who knows what. 

And in this dream, the first image there is a barrier, basically, that I carry, that holds me back, or should hold me back. But in the dream, I, somehow or another, I’m aware of this enough that I’m able to take a step, a step such that, in the final image, I voluntarily and joyously – I mean, it was amazing. I mean this knife is in his pocket and it’s personal and whatnot, but he reaches in and hands this knife over to me almost as if it’s an afterthought. He’s glad to hand it to me. I didn’t ask him for the knife, he just voluntarily and joyously gives it up.

And what he’s doing is he’s giving up that which had been, or, because he is me, I’m giving up that which has been keeping me from going into an inner banquet hall where there is a whole dimension of things to be taken in wondrously. So what I’m being shown is that a breakthrough is imminent. That is the sense, anyway, that I have upon an energetic level of my beingness at this time.

How does our system communicate with us? When we are awake, we might have an intuition, or sometimes we’ll have a flash of insight, and, when we are asleep, we have our dreams that show us playing the many parts of a movie up on the big screen of our unconscious. And, in these roles, part of us can be bored, while another part of us is so far behind that what bores one aspect is fascinating to it. The human is designed to be a unity, and work seamlessly with itself. These subtle disconnects, and inner alienations, can be healed to a great degree by our conscious awareness that they exist. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, because this had to do with having to catch up with something anew, in the meditation dream, I noticed that the breath was causing everyone I knew to catch up with and see a deeper in-depthness in manifestation about themselves. But that was for them. 

In other words, what I’m describing here is actually myself coming to catch up with certain things that I’m meant to be able to catch up with in this lifetime, that are natural. And so in the meditation dream, it’s from the breath that I’m realizing that things can be caught up with, but it’s not a big surprise to me. There’s some other me that is watching, and it’s a big surprise probably to them, and it’s keeping life interesting for them. 

But for me, as I’m listening to people describe their awareness, I notice that everything they say is about the breath and its reflectiveness in manifestation. And that reflectiveness and that way in manifestation is something I already know. I also notice that, because I already know all of this, it carries a kind of a sense of ordinariness, so I’m a little bored and something more is needed. 

Well, in terms of the way things have been going, I’ve been looking outwardly and noticing that, in terms of the fact that it doesn’t go anywhere anew for me. But, when it’s my turn, the ordinariness about the general overall observations of awareness, that are notable in the breath, that I understand and find satisfy most dynamics in terms of human beings, I notice that suddenly there’s something more that beckons to my surprise. It’s just like a lightbulb moment, or a sudden shift, or shock, where I see a whole new world and life revealed in the breath that I hadn’t noticed before. 

So I find myself describing this breath of manifestation in terms of an awareness that I have found in the breath, as well. And it is something that no one has seen before in terms of all the others who are excited about the breakthroughs that they had that brought them up to a particular point, but for me what’s really going on is all of this – because everything is me – was it brought me up to a particular point and now there is a newfound use and awareness in terms of what is going on in manifestation that’s basically a newfound profoundness. 

So what I am talking about is a way of being, not heretofore revealed, which has suddenly come through me into manifestation. And, in doing so, it’s kind of given into life for the first time, this being an awareness about life no one had noticed before, which means I hadn’t noticed before. Because I keep talking about it in the past tense, or secondary tense, but everything in the dream is about me.
