A crime has been committed and, as the dreamer, you are on the case. The investigation finds everything scattered and in pieces, and leads from an island to the cooler north – but is progress being made? In any investigation, the clues begin to paint a larger picture until the full understanding can come into view. So it is with our inner journey: in our lives we have scattered our wholeness into thousands of separate pieces and we are trying to find the main threads that bring them all back together.

Jeane: So, in my dream, it’s like I’m on some kind of an island, it feels kind of British or something. And there’s been a crime that’s been committed and I’m trying to track it down, but it feels like there’s all these little houses and businesses that are small, and the people. I’m trying to get to know them and figure out where everybody was, but I can’t seem to put my finger on who the problem was because I keep going everywhere and looking at what people were doing, but everyone’s kind of covering for something in a way. 

And that kind of evolves more into a dream where we’re all kind of living somewhere that feels kind of in the north where it’s cold. Again, I’m looking for someone that maybe has committed a crime. But this time, we’re all living in kind of a large barracks. But it was like, although we have a large, open living area, we have all these tiny little bathrooms everywhere. And a lot of them leak. And each bathroom seems to be associated with a person. 

So it’s like I’m trying to figure out how we can find out who committed the crime. And I finally tell somebody that’s in charge, I think what they ought to do is to assign those of us that they maybe think haven’t done anything with someone that could have done it, pair us up one to one, and maybe that way we can figure it out. 

And also, at one point, it seems like I walk over to a door, and suddenly there’s a pond there. And there’s this huge turtle. Then there are suddenly two huge turtles there, and I’m trying to figure out what they eat. It’s almost like something drops from the sky, there’s even a little frog there. And somebody comes up to me to explain to me what they eat; that’s when I go back inside. 

And I go into one of the bathrooms that was leaking, and I suddenly realize that somebody’s been trying to do some repairs, because there are a couple brass faucets or gold-looking faucets, which none of the other bathrooms are that updated. But, on the other hand, it’s starting to leak from the ceiling and it’s leaking more than normal, like it suddenly sprung new leaks. And that was when I woke up. 

John: So the dream starts off in which you’re isolated in terms of yourself, like you’re on an island. And you know that you’re meant to shift or connect to something, but instead of recognizing that it’s a shift and a connection in which you change inside of yourself, you perceive it instead as if something is haunting and trying to come after you. 

And then, as a consequence of you feeling it that way, having isolated and bifurcated yourself from the overall, that, as you’re growing, you come to recognize that, yes, you can have a bigger place but your mannerism isn’t quite right in terms of it. And thus you are not able to align yourself, or put yourself together. You’re not putting yourself together, that’s the fact of all the little bathrooms and they all leak, they don’t work and they’re all individualized, you know, you’re meant to be a whole. 

And then you’re shown that there is so much more, you’re shown the turtle, and you’re shown the quality of how something is meant to be. And so what that does is – the image of the turtle and the effect of that suddenly in the atmosphere – takes and touches the heart in a certain way so that you are redeemed from that predicament. In fact, you come to know that there is something about the quality of that turtle that eats this sort of stuff as food, this imbalance and whatnot, in terms of its care of a wholeness for the world. 

But you don’t hold it. When you come back and look around you find out, yes, lots has been done. But it didn’t get finished. And so, yes, the toilets and whatnot attempts to repair have occurred, but it didn’t get put into a proper completed package, or container, thus the roof and the ceilings are leaking. 

So what is interesting about this dream is it has the detail of an unfoldment that’s a lot like the masculine dreams unfold because I can take and I could see the whole sequencing of things which one sees in a masculine type dream, and usually you just find yourself in a way of being, you know, just all subjective way of being without the objective added to it. And then it’s a question of, okay, what does that image portray or signify? 

In this particular case, the signifying aspect of something that’s just a set modality, or overall modality, was the turtle in terms of what it eats, and the understanding of something how that has its healing quality. But the rest of it had to do with the misaligned meandering of having taken on an energetic demeanor that was a little askew in terms of how it was meant to unfold, or awaken, in terms of taking in something in a larger overall process of oneself, the wholeness.

One of the fundamental dynamics to understanding our dreams is the interplay between our higher and lower selves. We can recognize the higher aspect because it is usually representing the best, or clearest, or most sensible position – it’s the teacher, the healer, the guide, the elder. Sometimes it is shown by the places we go: underwater for a dive into our deeper consciousness, or up in an airplane for reconnection to our higher nature. And often these two sides chase one another until someone gets the message and lets themselves be caught, so an integration can take place. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, in the dream I had last night it feels like we’re all male, even me. Initially, I feel like someone is hunting me. And I’m concerned that I’ll give myself away, either when I go to practice my Tai Chi, or when I go to the bathroom. So I’m trying to stay somewhat concealed, and watch where I would practice any activities. 

But it seems to shift slightly, and we’re hunting someone, one of the other men. And it feels like he’ll give himself away, too, when he goes to the bathroom, plus he seems to have an injury. So we take him to a doctor, but the doctor seems to practice in the ocean so we’re all in the water. And it’s hard to keep track of him sometimes, because maybe he just swims and then we have to go try and find him and get him to the doctor. 

And then it seems like we’ve all gotten on the airplane. And, again, we’re trying to disguise him by where he sits on the airplane, but he won’t seem to sit where we want him to sit. And my concern is that if we get up to go to the bathroom, or if we get up to practice the Tai Chi again, people will spot us and find us. So there seems to be this concern both with finding him, and with disguising ourselves. That’s all I really remember of the dream.

John: This is your way of describing that there exists a presence, that you feel abstractively in the atmosphere, that is in the way of being able to let go into an emptiness, or invisibleness, of yourself. 

At the same time that you feel this means that you also have a sense that you need to be in a kind of emptiness that is a quality that you have a sense about, but do not know how to zero in or zoom in on it. The barrier is even the thought itself, meaning that if such and such occurs, or is contemplated, or is taken into account, then that means that you, when like this, are not able to just let go and go into this soul level place. 

It’s different than my way of looking at it, but it has some elements that are in common, in that you are seeing yourself as if you are sorting this sort of thing out, which is a masculine way of trying to get there. So you have that masculine way of trying to get there sense about yourself, and yet, at the same time, you’re acknowledging that where it is and how it is that it feels in an experiential or sensation sort of way. 

It’s an interesting dream in that it kind of points out the two parts of one’s being, or soul, coming together or becoming an overallness. And, when they aren’t that total letting go, it’s pointing out to you what it’s kind of like as a sensation sense, and what it’s kind of like as a way of trying to sort oneself out. And that they’re kind of flip sides of the same coin: the sensation sense will kind of correspond to the sorting out aspect, and they kind of go hand in hand.

To dream of being bullied, and being chased to the point of jumping off a roof, may cause one to wake up and look at their outer life for signs and clues of where this exists. And it may exist there in some form, but our dreams use such vibrations to show us something about ourselves. In the dream world we are both the bully and the bullied, the chaser and the chased. Here we see the process of taking this struggle to an inner depth to sort it out. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember my last dream. But, in that dream, it seems like I’m considerably smaller than everybody else, which means that, as I go around, I see what everybody’s doing that they don’t see me as much, or notice me as much. 

I see how this one man is kind of bullying people and maybe even using them to hide what he’s doing. And I want to expose what he’s doing. And I can do this by how all the information on these little tickets, or something, that are all hooked together. So he sees that I know this, and he starts chasing me. 

And so I run to this one area, and I take this long string of tickets that has all the information on it that shows what he’s doing, and I drop it down through these narrow – it’s like a lot of stories up – and then because he’s going to grab me I just jump after them, and pull it with me, because I realized doing that I’ll take the evidence with me. Although it’s a little scary because I kind of keep dropping through one little square after another after another going down with this string of tickets with me, but I seem to make it to the bottom. 

And I see someone else, a young girl. And I feel like he’s kind of used her as one of those people that he bullies. And it’s like, I’m almost going to do something to free her, but I realize that it’s almost like she doesn’t know how to get free, so I just have to keep moving with the evidence I found.

John: You’re describing an approach with regards to something that is considered awkward, or unbalanced, or out of sync. What you’re doing is you’re initially absorbing all of this, in other words, you’re using that which is out of balance in order to land on your own two feet. In other words, you’re jumping off the cliff and that stuff is there. 

So you gathered the information. So by taking what is unbalanced you took it to a depth; you took it down. So you can only use what you know when it’s time for it to be able to come out. So first of all, you have to take the information and take it to a depth within. And you can only use the information that you gather when it’s appropriate and at the time when it’s meant to come out. In other words, you can’t use it with the little girl because it wouldn’t make any sense. 

So you’re describing a process in terms of how you’re dealing with something that you’ve come across in your nature. You’re accumulating it, you’re looking at it, you’re accumulating it, you’re taking it to a depth. And that, even though you are doing this, you’re not reacting with it. You’re waiting for a time when it’s possible to bring it out in a way that is going to be on a timeline – it’s going to be beneficial. 

You’re using yourself as a container for that which you’ve accumulated from having watched and seen imbalances. So I wonder, how can one endure being a container, or being a person who holds the information that can’t flow, that can’t come out, that is taken to a depth within where it is held in check until it can come out, until some time when it might be meaningful for it to come out – which isn’t now?
