Archive for the ‘Chase Dreams’ Category

Here we have a classic dream scenario: a chase dream, where inner fears on the surface (of life) cause one to dive into the underwater depths of themselves to, at first, elude the pursuers, yet to ultimately confront the psychological mechanisms that are in play, and to let go of them by surrendering. This may seem like an intense dream experience, but, through understanding of the message here, the dreamer can gain a consciousness of what is happening and let go to the new awakening – much more easily than by facing such a challenge in waking life.

John: I start with my meditation dream that lays the foundation of this, and go into sleep dreams with it, too. This came across really loud and it was a meditation dream, which is a bit of a repeat only it had the detail and came through better so I didn’t forget it. I remember having had it before, somehow. 

And so by coming through as loudly and as clearly as it did, I’m able to see and understand the detail and even hear voices in it. And I have caught up with it in a way that’s a little different in that I even know the breath level, or am experiencing how the breath is affected by a quality of the drama, and thus this helps to further my understanding and acceptance of the gravity of the situation. When I dreamt this before it wasn’t loud enough or complete enough to do it justice, and thus to remember and catch the theme and the vibe as needed. 

So, in the dream, I’ve gone into the depths in order to get away from a situation that was too much for me to face on the surface. In other words, it’s like the way you would kind of describe this is it’s like being on the land, we’ll say, and it’s like a sense that I’m pursued or affected or afflicted in some manner as I go about my day to day. And I can’t continue to do that, so I plunge into the depths – like I have a cavern or something I can go into, and I can go into that to elude any quality that is harbingering when I’m sitting on the outer surface. 

And so what basically I’m doing is I’m challenging the depths of myself to reach an important surrender point and to accept the fate of my actions. I can’t change anything, I can’t do anything, I would just go around and around if I stayed on the surface. So now I go into the depths. 

So, in the dream, I and another, which is basically the shadow side of myself, I’m always taking my shadow side with me, find myself having gone into the cavern in the ground to elude pursuers. I mean, just the fact that we do that actually eludes the pursuers, because the pursuers, that quality of whatever is pent up about ourselves, don’t really go into the ground, it sits trying to waylay us on the surface.

So, when I did this before, I was convinced that I would be getting away, only this time I’m getting more information. This time I’m not sure if what I’m doing is actually going to save my life, but if I go to the surface I’m going to be afflicted by it, and if I go to the depths I’m dealing with a type of my psyche that is a little strung out. And it’s treacherous to face something, this particular thing, that’s a core aspect of my personality nature. It’s even a little bit intense to face this at a depth. 

But I know what I am doing has to be done because it is an essential step. And, if I pull it off, what will happen is, I will have to come to grips with how it is that this intolerance quality works, which means I will get caught by it. In other words, I could no longer think it’s just a dismissal mannerism, and you get caught by that is an absolute certainty, and can I handle that?

The issue of whether I am able to – and I call it “save my life” – it’s not a certainty that I will get through this. In other words, if I have to face this confrontively it might be too much for me. And what unfolds when I must subsequently surrender, because that’s what I have to do when I face this, I will have to surrender to a quality that transforms the effect, or the powers that be, so to speak, i.e., that’s something that I suppose symbolically I deemed as a type of pursuer on the surface, upon having gone to a particular depth within, whether I can make this happen or not is not actually revealed. 

In other words, the image within is as follows. I go into a depth, I’m able to crawl around a set limitation therein, in other words, it’s like a thing that penetrates down and I’m able to go around the bottom of it and I’m imagining that I will be able to come up into a cavern accessible by my pursuers that are on the other side. But I have to crawl through a zone and crawl up where it is kind of rubbery and maybe not even open enough for me to get through. But I have to try. 

And there’s a very claustrophobic quality to its nature; it’s why one reacts. It’s actually a type of claustrophobia in the intolerance. Although I believe it is possible to crawl up to the cavern where I will find myself probably even exhausted, and, therefore, okay and eager to even surrender, there’s no guarantee that I can make it. Can I get around it, and up, and into the recess cavern remains to be seen?

So, the meaning is, there are disturbances in my being that I have not resolved that haunt what happens to me in manifestation. To overcome such pent-up disturbances, I must go into the depths of myself. In other words, like journey backwards, or confront that. Let go of it. In other words, you don’t just keep feeding it. 

What I must confront is a deep-pattern affliction that, on the surface, repeats over and over and I am not able to handle this in every outer scenario. It’s something that has become a habituation to my personality nature. So the time has come where I realize that there is a desperation to get beyond this impingement.

There are rules associated with surprise parties: you can’t tell anyone, you have to be there at a specific time, and good directions are required. Well, we can say all these same attributes are needed for the new that is rising within us. We can’t speak about it, because we’re not sure what it is exactly. Timing is important, too soon and and it may not show up, and too late and it may already be over. And we must know how to get there – which is the trickiest part because it’s not a brain understanding, but an intuitive sense of how and when to let go to the arising itself. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, in the first dream, it seems like I’m in this town and I’m going to be going to a party, and it’s going to be a surprise party for a woman. But I’m not quite sure how I get to her house. 

And I seem to go to a small restaurant, and I run into her. But I can’t quite tell her I’m going to her house yet, it’s a surprise party, but I am trying to figure out how to get there. It’s a small town, it feels like I even ask directions of people. And I seem to have a strange vehicle for getting there, maybe almost like a horse made out of wood or something. 

At first, everything’s benign. I’m looking for how to get somewhere and going there at night, but then the dream takes a shift. It feels like there’s a group of us that are being persecuted, or they want to capture us. And she’s one of them, but there’s other people with me now, too, and it’s almost like I’ve given them a ride to the area where the party was. 

And now we’ve gone to an underground area to try to get away. And we feel like we’ll be cornered if we don’t get away, it felt like people will put chains on us. And they might keep us prisoner, they might kill us, might use us for food. I’m just not sure what’s going on here. 

So I can tell the people that are coming to get us are not far away, and I go to an area and it feels like in the basement of this large building that we’re in there’s a small river. And it’s been dammed at one end. So there’s a bunch of rapids there. But the rapids go right by a laundry. And I’ve gathered together about four or five of us and when I see the people coming to capture us, I have this idea that we’re gonna have to jump into the rapids. And we can maybe get out right where the laundry is, if we can make it that far. Not sure at first, might make it, might drown. 

But on the other hand, if we stay we’re going to be held prisoner. So somehow, with a small group of people, we jump into the water, we make it as far as the laundry, and then we make it somewhere else, it feels almost like another land. It’s sunny out, we’ve kind of climbed up on a bit of a pyramid structure, we’re drying out a little bit. And the family of one of the women I took with us lives there. They wear outfits that almost look like from a different era and time. Back in the time when you might have Egyptians or South Americans, they’re kind of odd looking outfits. 

Her daughter and her daughter’s husband seem like they’re friendly, but they’re not there right then, and we’ve climbed up on his structure. But then I see down below that there are some people that come that are just like the people in the other land, who would restrain or capture us. So we’re gonna have to see how we can get away from them or move on. We can do it if they realize that we don’t know what they’re up to. We don’t act like we know that. And if we stay semi concealed, it feels like I have almost these cartons or something we can pull ourselves back in, or carts that if we stay low they don’t quite notice us. 

And I feel like if we can look a bit invisible for a while, then we can just slowly move out of the area. But this woman’s daughter and husband come and I reveal the plan to them. But I think if the daughter could get from where we are into their home, she might be okay there. But we need to make an escape. 

So it’s like I’m writing to them, almost like I’m sending a birthday card but I’m sending it in code so that they’ll know what we’re doing. And that’s how they reply back. And other people can’t figure it out, because it’s kind of like one of those things like where if you run they chase you.

John: So you did a portal dream. And so what happens is you start off in which you’re not able to quite flush through a sense of things. You know you’re meant to open something up, or, so to speak, throw a party that is an invisible or blind party. It has nothing to do with the day to day or whatever, it has to come up from within. That’s why it comes up as a blind party. 

And so what that really is doing is it’s an acknowledgement. It’s a recognition of a heartfelt depth acknowledgement that is able to happen based upon something from deep, deep, deep as a connective source within that you’re able to catch up with and bring up. 

However, it’s not like that is tangibly quickened and alive, it’s like it’s dormant. It’s hidden. It’s ancient. It echoes inside of you but you haven’t caught up with it. It goes back to some time, but you haven’t caught up with it. And because you haven’t caught up with it, you’re trapped or you’re stuck in the minutiae of the world that you’re in in which everything haunts you. So instead of there being something that comes out and embraces, and glorifies, and puts something into a really nice condition of openness, instead, without that there, you are everything around you, instead, doesn’t know any better, and it haunts you. It doesn’t mean to do that, it just does. It threatens to put you in chains and trap you, and keep you in some sort of brutalized in the outer state of being. 

But you have this depth of an inner that knows that it’s not supposed to be that way. And that this is meant to be something so much more, but you can’t, as far as you’re able to go in this aspect of the present, as far as dreaming, you can’t throw such a party because that which you’re trying to throw the party to, you haven’t sorted this out somehow or another, you haven’t brought it up into a clarity to where it could be accepted and respected and taken to heart. You instead find yourself plagued and having to be afflicted because you can’t get there. In other words, the bifurcations prevail.

Here we have the imagery of vicious creatures, in a dense jungle, chasing pet dogs. So, what is more upsetting, those images, or remembering that we are all the characters in our dreams? We are a man’s best friend living in a quiet town, and we are vicious creatures that just might win out over the friendly pups. But, from the dream’s perspective, this isn’t a battle of good over evil as much as it is a reminder that what is hidden in us is the most threatening when we leave it in the darkness. Our journey is to help bring the light of our consciousness into the darker spaces – which benefits the whole of us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The Chistis still work within the level of dharma. I’m still working within the level of a type of dying before you die, which is a total letting go. 

And if you’re working within the level of a dharma, you’re going to continue to work with the rhythm of the breath. And if you continue to work with the rhythm of the breath, then you’re going to have to somehow accommodate the unfoldment of others into the equation of things. In other words, you don’t just carry a heartfulness, in, and of, and with yourself exclusively, and ignore, for example, on the out-breath the pragmatic aspect of things that functions as well and has more to offer because it is very, very jinn skills oriented and it hasn’t weakened itself. Or still considers itself very, very viable, when the path towards the angelic is continuously cutting things, and cutting things, and cutting things. 

In the first dream, it’s very, very loud, I go out into the deep woods with my dogs and run into vicious creatures. In other words, this is like a jungle out there, and I run into vicious creatures that I’m able to ward off based upon my presence. I’m able to ward them off because maybe I have a kind of a weapon or something that keeps them at bay. 

But my dogs would not be any protection and it’s a good thing that I’m there. In fact, I’m told that my dogs, if left alone out there, will eventually get pulled down, meaning they can’t outrun these vicious wild creatures.

Well, I don’t want to think about it, but because this thought was brought up, that it could be like this, it grabbed my attention as a concern. And whenever you wonder like that, this gives the opportunity for an instability to eventually come to the forefront and potentially happen. 

Well sure enough, the day arrives when the dogs are in the jungle. In other words, a part of myself that is extended out, that doesn’t have its full presence is what the dogs represent because they’re the friends. And these wild creatures attack. So the dogs run for their lives. 

And I’m sitting there wondering, man, they have to really go through some very thick jungle, you know, that  could slow them down because these wild creatures live in this kind of jungle, they don’t mind this kind of thing. I’m really concerned: can they make it? Can they make it? And they finally burst out of the jungle into town, just as the wolves are catching them and pulling them down. And I can feel the pain of the wolves attack catching up with them, or wild creatures, whatever they are. 

So I wake up feeling the pain of the dogs needing civilization to wake up. So, what’s the meaning? This follows underneath the quality of a greater watching-your-heart theme. Almost the need to be able to watch the heart, in the heart of another. To be able to affect that. In other words, if everything is still asleep, this problem could come right into town, and could happen and everyone stays asleep. No one’s the wiser. 

Or they could wake up and everything could get fixed, you know, you could beat off the darkness. So as a dream it indicates that help is needed before surrendering angelically is sustainable. If you’re in a deep inner place, deep inside of yourself, that can be kind of angelic. You can’t maintain that, you can’t sustain that, especially if you’re working with just the rhythm of the breath and you’re not going out of Dodge, which, I guess, you’re not supposed to do, you’re supposed to maintain yourself in the books of life. You can’t sustain this angelic side of yourself. 

And if you ignore, kind of in a whole other part of yourself that is in the denseness of the outer, it’s like we kind of are perhaps maybe we’re going somewhere in a different kind of way from a top-down approach, but there’s something that enables us to pull out dreams, which is like a quality of a blackboard in our nature, by which, whenever we’re going through something we can catch up with it and pull it out – it just doesn’t circle around unconsciously and remain in an untouchable state. 

With most people that dream, if you really look at it, the dream is usually triggered by something that has created some sort of effect that you’ve spun around, either it could be something profoundly wonderful, it could be something profoundly bizarre. Anyway it’s something to some sort of essence of your being, leaked through, like it hit a spot that came through, that got your attention in some mode, and you have to look at it more succinctly.

Amongst the Chistis they’re affected differently in that they know that they’re dreaming a lot but they don’t remember any of it – and how that comes through is a whole other thing.
