Being held captive, a rescue on horseback, and an escape – these are the elements that we find in fairy tales and action movies. Yet when the images come from a dream, and we understand that all the elements are a part of the dreamer’s inner life, we can gain an insight into what is being wrestled with. To free oneself of something a person needs to summon an inner power greater that what holds the person back. Yet letting go is never easy, so the image shows the characters trying to grab supplies as they break free – but, of course, it can’t work that way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In this dream, I’m like a little girl but I’ve been bound and kept captive somewhere. My hands are kind of loosely in some kind of a soft handcuff and I’m kept somewhere. And I’m kept in this building that’s almost like a school; there’s other kids there.

Well, I’m trying to figure out how to get free, and I do get out of the room one day, and then there’s a horse outside and the horse turns into my uncle, so I get away with my uncle.

And then there’s me as the little girl, there seems to be me as an older version, and my uncle, and we are all trying to get out of town and escape. But we have to figure out how to get some supplies.

Now, I start looking around for supplies. My uncle, sometimes he’s like a man, my uncle, and sometimes he’s the horse again, and then there’s the little girl me also. Now when we go looking for supplies, she goes back to the school and she gets seen. And I don’t know why she went there looking for something – the school where she’d been kind of imprisoned. Some people see her, so I have to kind of get her out of there again.

And then we’re going through the town very fast. We can’t go back to the house, a house where we’re known. We’re trying to find some supplies. We go into a building, and it’s a building where there’s weavers and things. We think we may actually take some things from there, just like, you know, to stay warm or whatever. But I realize that whatever we take, they may put a tracker in it.

So I have a thought that we’ll take this tracker and we’ll give it to the kid on the street, we’ll find out where they’ve hid the tracker in whatever we take, and we’ll give it to a kid on the street. And that might solve the problem, except they might have a hidden tracker as well that I’d have to find. I think that’s the point in the dream when the glass fell over and so I woke up.

John: So the energetic of feeling like bound, or tied up, is the contractive condition of where one is still caught in some sort of allure or identification. So a power is needed, an inner power, that breaks through the trance that exists when one is enraptured with the condition of seeking to maintain a certain mannerism. 

And so the inner power comes, because it recognizes it can let go of that condition that keeps one bound. And so then you’re swept away.

So when you gain the inner power, you also access certain traits and qualities that you’re able to function with, that kind of come with the inner power. However the little girl experiences the power just as an energetic, in and of itself, and doesn’t need any of the accoutrements that help facilitate a sense of balance in terms of you and your way of relating to the outer. In other words, that can all fall away.

Well the reason why there’s the sense of people trying to capture you again is because one didn’t totally let go. The little girl suggests something that could have let go by wandering on off, but the concept is that doing so endangers her because she could be hurt.

That’s a type of worrying, and a type of imposed stress, as a way of being in place of the total letting go. In other words, there’s always the tendency, the human nature always has the tendency of having to utilize something, instead of being able to shift in such a way so that there’s nothing that has to be leaned on. And you can shift in such a way so you don’t ever even lean on the back of a wall, or another place, or tool or whatever. That would involve not sitting in a way that gives one some sort of sense of driftiness. These are all examples of holding on to something, when in reality you really don’t need to hold onto anything. It’s a deep dream.

So the glass broke and shattered the whole flow of the dream, but you pulled and held onto the dream even with the glass having shattered because the dream carried a resonance that pointed to something as a letting go towards an emptiness.

clip_2Here is a series of images that show exactly what a person deals with in their development journey. First it begins with a chase dream image, where there is a resistance to what is awakening inside. When the image shifts, the dreamer heads into the depths of herself to bring out deeper, inner aspects. Yet every energetic can be used by us in a constructive or a destructive way, so a conscious choice must be made. And then, the “wicked” stepsisters are gotten rid of, being the inner aspects that were causing the issues in the first place. It’s the process of inner transformation, one scenario at a time. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So the earliest dream I have, I know it was involving a chase, and one of the chases is a man that kind of has like kind of a very tanned, or golden, skin. But I’m kind of shocked out of the dream, and forget the rest of it, because it feels like he suddenly runs and jumps off a trestle way high over the ground. And he just jumps off it, and it shocks me so much I kind of forget the rest of that dream.

You know, it’s kind of like your player has suddenly jumped off the board, or something, you know, so I don’t remember much more about that dream.

John: Chase dreams have to do with you’re holding onto a veil or something, and you’re using that as your focus of attention, and pushing back with that veil. And so thus you create the sensation, energetically, of a chase.

If you drop the veil, if it just falls away, then you drop what is really going on, into your inner divine presence. Going from zero to 100, that’s what it would be like typically: if you drop a veil of 100, you pick up something of 50, and 40, and 30, and 20, you don’t make the full fell swoop. But the image, in and of itself, is the right direction as something just drops away.

Jeane: Then I have a dream where in part of the dream it feels like I go down these steps, and open some doors, and there’s a whole other world down there, a whole group of people that live down there.

It’s almost like I had parted some stone first, and then the stone opened up to some steps, and the steps went down to these doors, and there’s this whole other world that I go into. And when I come back out I shut the doors, but there are some people from down there that come up with me.

But as they go out in society with me, it’s like they’re able to do things above ground that other people maybe can’t do, and I feel like this brings them to people’s attention and then that makes me anxious.

John: So what you’ve done is you’ve gone down some steps into a place, and then you discovered something that comes out with you? That’s in keeping with the theme of the dreaming, in that as you take and you probe the depths of yourself you come to grips with who you really are.

And every trait and quality that you really are, has two sides to it. You could say it has a positive side, and a negative side. Or you could say that it has the side that’s divine, and the side that’s deranged, and a rawness that’s balanced or misaligned.

And so when you go down into the depths of yourself and you discover things that you don’t understand or, in other words, that comes out with you, and it causes you to go through all kinds of peculiarities, what you have done is you have tapped into the parts of yourself that are misaligned yet, that is like a raw energy or something, that can be extremely destructive.

And that’s the reason why human beings are veiled like they’re veiled, because they lack the training, and discipline, and understanding, and heartfelt clarity to properly handle these inner qualities of their own being. When they come out, they could come out as a reflection of the divine, or they can come across in some other perverted way.

It is always like that: within the saint is the Satan. It’s always like that, except the saint is a saint because they have overcome the Satan quality, or the demonic quality, of their nature, and are able to be effective in terms of intertwining things in a transformative way. And, of course, I’m talking about intertwining things in a transformative way that is in keeping with the wholeness of life – and not taking and rendering something asunder based upon the flip side misuse of the vibration.

And when you hear a teacher talking about why you need a teacher, because they can explain some of this stuff that lies there deep within, dormant within, that you could be thrown around by or affected by, that you don’t have a good explanation for in terms of necessarily the outer because it can get channeled and come through in an inner way, too. Basically the teacher is able to look at you and see the flip side of this divine quality trait, and with the flip side it’s always a tenuous balance because of the way magnetism works you have the flip side, or the mirror image, a Yin and a Yang. You have the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. You always have those in the same package; a saint having basically moved completely beyond the qualities, or the conditions, of that other, that is in a raw loudness and destructive, for example, in terms of an energy that’s misunderstood. Instead having aligned or brought the vibration into cohesion with the inner divine essence that’s restorative and intertwining to the whole.

Jeane: Then I had a dream in which I’m living in this house that has a series of rooms. It’s like in the family situation it feels like there’s some women that have been somewhat imposed upon me, like stepsisters or something.

And as I go through the rooms, like from the kitchen, to the living room, to this other room, because it’s kind of a railroad style apartment or whatever, it feels like because of these women the rooms have been painted a certain color, like a deep pink and other shades.

And as I’ve gone outside I’m talking to somebody else that, as soon as these women leave, the first thing I’m going to do is repaint some of these rooms. And I’m going through and I’m talking with them about how I’m going to repaint them, because I’m going to make them lighter and smoother.

And maybe there’s one room I may leave the same for right now, in the kitchen, because the way it is doesn’t look too bad, but the other rooms I’m definitely getting a handyman and the first thing I’m doing is repainting them.

John: Let me see if I followed that. In other words, you went into a place where you have a bunch of stepsisters. And so what you’re feeling that you have to do is you have to…

Jeane: Get rid of them and repaint.

John: You have to repaint all of that, or change the look, or the appearance, or the feeling, or the setting of the place. In other words, they bring about too much. They are parts of yourself that bring out too much commotion. They react in this way, and react in that way, bite on this, bite on that.

It’s typical. You can imagine this. You know, if you go into a chaotic setting, and the setting is all haywire, and the whole place needs to be rearranged and readjusted – you’re not going to adjust it in that haywire energy. I mean you could see that it is in need of being cleaned or whatever might be the case. You’re going to have to get that which is causing it to be disheveled out of the way – and then you can take and transform it. And then, conceivably, if these other parts come back that they can then appreciate what took place.

But you can’t do that when they’re sitting there in the imbalance, because they’re the ones, or that aspect of yourself, is what has in its loudness created the mess. So you have to get rid of that loudness, that aspect, that denseness in order to access what it takes to polish and shine something up.

And so you’ve portrayed this as an image, as an outer image, as a quality in which you have these stepsisters, or basically aspects of yourself, and that’s how it is. In order to get in touch with what is real, you have to set aside that which is imbalanced, that is dense.

What I’m sitting and I’m looking at is you presented this in a masculine way. That’s what the masculine does. It makes black-and-white decisions. The feminine generally just works with the orientation of the whole and, somehow or another, finds itself moving around and describing things in terms of the orientation of the whole, of which you then say, okay, what there is in the whole that has to be absorbed, or taken out, or rectified, or limits in some capacity, the aspect of manifestation that you are in and contending with?

But in this particular case, you seem to have made a decision. The feminine usually doesn’t make a decision. The masculine makes a decision. The feminine is a container energy, but you’ve gotten rid of the stepsisters. You’ve made a decision. You’ve cut through something and then, as a consequence then, you then can resort to the overall feminine nature of something being aware and alive within at a depth. You then know how to make the place right. That’s surprising. I’ve never seen you dream quite like that before.

ur-absIn this dream image we see a coach who is training the dreamer, and we also see the dreamer being asked to coach someone else. In the world of our dreams, because we are all the characters that populate the dream images, this shows how the unconscious tries to awaken and incorporate aspects of our inner lives that are at different levels of development and different levels of hiddenness. A spiritual journey must incorporate the whole of us, with no parts left behind. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So in the second dream it feels like I’m in high school, but at night I go out and I train with a coach, and I’m training in a particular way. And he has other people that help him, like there’s this one bus driver that kind of is in a bus or some kind of a vehicle that’s parked near a curb at night, and it’s a tall curb, and I go down and I lay down below the curb and there’s some structure they’re teaching me how to climb around, or get out of or, you know, develop a certain strength from dealing with.

And so he has other people at certain areas around town at night that are helping me with this training that I’m going through, and something that I’m building up from doing the training. But then at some point he wants me to help train this high school kid also, or train others, and the problem is the high school kid is pursuing me and kind of trying to dominate, or chase me, as opposed to be focused on what the purpose of our training is.

So this creates a dilemma for me because, on the one hand, the coach wants me to be training him, and on the other hand it’s like you’re training somebody who’s pursing you in a way you don’t want to be pursued. And so it’s really frustrating for me, in that way, because I feel a little caught in this dilemma and it interferes at times with the training, or what I feel that I can do.

I even go back at some point in this dream and I’m examining the prior dream, and I’m looking at the white cap but I’m also looking at like I feel like they got stuck in that dream in terms of what they were able to do. In this dream, whatever I’m able to do, or not able to do, gets represented by a black cap that at least has a certain vitality. And it’s again an animal of some kind that is kind of like wooly and you wear it on your head, but it’s black this time instead of white.

And I do feel like it goes a little further in terms of being able to accomplish its mission in the world, but it really feels like I’m looking at both and not satisfied with either.

John: So, in this dream, the outer world, the world in which your senses and the world in which you have to cope in as best you can, that is the external world, that is the collective, is represented by the high school.

And then the teaching that is awakening at night, on the inner level, on a higher-self level, on a level that is awakening in some small aspect, is causing you, is enabling you, to make a transformative step away from the day-to-day.

In other words, that is causing something to find motion and clarity from the usual collective. Well, the problem, or the issue, is, like I said at the very end of your last dream, that transformation is not where it is really at. In other words, it’s not like making a better widget, or making a better person.

You have to hit an absoluteness of clarity of beingness, that is an emptiness, that isn’t affected by conditions of closed heart, or conditions of not being able to experience through you the greater expansiveness of all of the various levels that you are meant to have access to, which tends to be ignored by many teachers the understanding that there is this, in the gut, Hara center of your nature, which needles away at you so that even though you had created a bit of transformation in terms of what was going on in terms of this night class or whatever that you were taking, in order for that to be meaningful, in other words to get to something that was more than just a temporal transformation and then you would fall back based upon the pent-up Hara center of your nature, you have to go back, and you have to contend with the loudness inside of yourself that creates the confusion and creates the blur, which is in the outer, which is in the day-to-day.

And in going back to that, you go back to a particular loudness, or characteristic, or quality that you need to get beyond – and that is represented by this one particular student that you’re directed to bring across. And that one student represents a Hara-center quality that is repressed, and has a fluctuating dynamic, that keeps you from going to more than just a temporal transformative energetic vibration. It keeps you from reaching the wholeness.

And so you’re meant to deal with that. And so, in dealing with that, you are finding that this particular thing, this particular Hara quality, that’s repressed, suppressed, unconscious in your nature, is casting out images in which it is in some sense pursuing you or, in other words, the confusion that you have, in terms of being able to incorporate an emptiness that goes to this area as well, in the physical, is that there is this quality within – on the physical repressed level, or the Hara center – that’s in the gut, that carries and holds onto things that have been pent up and stored there over lifetimes. You’re having to break the spellbinding illusion of that because it’s effect upon you has created a defensive blur in which you see it, instead of something that can be absorbed and redeemed, you see it as something that in terms of trying to contend with it, it is stirring up your well being. It is pursuing you instead of being properly accessed and absorbed.

So, the difference between this dream and the first dream, is that in this dream you are trying to do it in a feminine way, thus the black hat. In the first dream you were trying to do it in a masculine way, the white hat.

In the first dream you were trying to come across with an effect with the diplomat that caused a bringing together of things, a closeness of things, plus dealing with peculiarities that are pent up in the Hara center of things. You were trying to address that in a direct way, that had to do, then, with opening up things so that the whole embassy effect, or the overallness, was there in its emptiness as well so that you would have a completeness in these three areas, we’ll call them, of wholeness.

In the second dream you were using the principle of the feminine energy to try to contend, to try to be surrendered, to dealing with something that is affecting your nature of being. In other words, it’s like you have had these insights, epiphanies, inflections inside of yourself to what a greater closeness is supposed to kind of be like, theoretically speaking, when it’s blurred by a Hara center, so that it is conditional to the Hara center. And you’re not going to have the greater transcendent quality that is offered in the teaching, in the connection that you’re having, within, at night, on the various levels – unless you are able to take all of this into the outer.

And the outer, in this particular case, is the high school, which is the school of where the real teaching is yet to be done in terms of the Hara center that has to either lived out, which will take forever, and isn’t the way to get to a transformation that leads to an absolute state of being. You’re not able to make it whole, or make it constant, or make it real unless you take and contend with that.

And so, in your dream, you were dealing with an aspect of something that had a particular definitional mannerism to it that is an illusion that you keep purporting as a kind of spell that you place upon yourself, that is the echo coming out of this unconscious state that is there having developed over millennia of time, and it is represented by the energetic and vibration of this student that is in the outer, basically, this thought seed or quality that is you in a physical sense, that as long as that continues the duality continues, because this will keep coming up to blur the potentiality.
