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.

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.

There are few things as mundane as socks, so when your dream offers you a magical portal that only delivers socks, socks, and more socks it can seem pretty disappointing. But we have to sift our way through the mundane to find what is valuable – it isn’t always going to just appear before us, we have to work for it. Eventually, as in this dream, a gold ring is discovered hidden in a sock, and it offers an even greater release from the mundane. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I only remember my last dream clearly. And, in this dream, I’ve gone into a room, and in the room is a bed. And right next to the bed is a cupboard that you reach into – it has a couple layers of shelves. And then there seems to be a hole in the top of the cupboard that goes somewhere else, into a room where, apparently, there’s things that belong to me. 

Because if I pound on the cupboard once, then some socks fall down through that hole, and I pick up the socks and I put them on the bed. And maybe one or two garments fall through at some point, as well. 

And I feel like I’m working against some deadline. And I’m looking for something that I know is evidence. I also feel like if anyone comes in and interrupts me, then maybe I won’t get through this. And, of course, every time I pound on that hole, what falls through is more socks, different kinds and colors of socks, and I’m taking them and I’m organizing them on the bed because I’m realizing I have way too many socks. And they’re all different colors and patterns and I’m going to have to do something with them – but at the same time I know there’s something else that I’m looking for, but every time I reach up and pound on the hole once what falls through is more socks.

And I can feel like someone’s coming, so there’s an urgency because I need to finish this. And I know I’m looking for something. So as I’m getting near what I guess what must have to be the end, because lord knows there’s enough socks piled up by now, one sock falls through and I feel like it has something hard in it. It’s concealing something. But I have to pound again to make sure I’ve got everything out.

And then after I’ve put everything in their proper piles, then I take the sock that has something in it and I open it up, and it feels like someone I know comes into the room right then, and what it is is a little ring box. And I open it up and I take out this ring, and it’s a gold mesh ring, almost looks like an earring, it’s curved in a spiral. And inside it is carved out of gold this face and something else. 

And the other person that’s come into the room comes over with me and we’re staring at this, trying to figure out what it represents. And I realize what it represents, finally, is apparently at some point in the past year there had been a murder, and I know that this is some evidence in that murder that will identify. It will do one of two things. It either identifies who committed the murder, then if I’m looking at it in a certain way I know it’s one of the two women involved. Or it’s telling me that one of the two women involved in that has actually switched identities. I’m not sure which it is the ring is telling me, but I know it’s one of those two things that this ring, in that way, will prove something about what happened there.

John: So the theme of the dreaming involves the accessing, inside of oneself, of the stillness that permeates everything that there is. That’s the over the top aspect of where things are going. 

And, in your dream, what you’re doing is noting that you have a particular channel that’s kind of opened up, in which you’re able to function in a myriad of ways in terms of a type of partial access, an access that enables you to go through things. And it appears to be a type of going through things in which it isn’t all veiled, totally veiled – like it can be for most people – but it isn’t the overall total stillness itself, either. It’s just a glimpse, within, that you have an access or connection to, and you have it from some sort of inner aspect of your beingness, your bedroom, the quality that depicts a letting go into something more. 

The thing about it is getting this access to open up more, because it seems like you’re realizing that you have a demeanor, a quality, that you have perfected, that’s to the point where something much much more. In other words, it’s a wonderful access that enables you to function well in life because you have this magical quality, or whatever, that can do and reach like this. However, something is insufficient about it because that same old, same old has come to a point where something much, much more needs to open up. In other words, something about what you’re doing is keeping that something more from opening up. 

And so it’s like you’re kind of raising the issue that enough is enough, and that this needs to break out more. And veiled in the journey, the stepping, the walking, and the socks are an aspect somewhere on the in-breath connection towards the stillness, to a point where it actually touches the stillness to some small degree, veiled in that, or within one of the socks, is the deeper depth. And it’s portrayed as a ring. 

The way that you look at the ring, however, is you get information in terms of what you’re doing to your heart, or self, to cause you to remain veiled from an access, and a connection, that opens up more than just that of a certain kind of really limited, rooted, sock-like way that currently prevails. 

The sensation that comes from this ring is meant to be twofold, but is still veiled. In other words, the ring, in its ideal, would represent kind of like having made the journey, having taken and suddenly gone, okay, enough is enough, and, poof, all of a sudden it all drops and you’re in the stillness. The ring would represent that in its ideal.

However the ring, for you, represents where there is still some mystery or conundrum that is in need of being sorted out, in which something has gotten hurt, or injured, and you’re wrestling with what it is that that can be, or is still possibly; the answer, or the resolution. And that is an aspect, then, that is a projection, and a holding onto, that keeps the overall stillness from just naturally being there. 

Because enough is enough in terms of a certain quality that you’re able to peek behind the door, or pull something through, or whatever. Enough is enough of that, is what you’re pretty much saying, and it’s time to break out of that completely. The ring certainly agrees that enough is enough, but it’s veiled because you have this other motif yet, that still is holding on to your attention. And that holding on has a particular vibration to it, and that vibration is reflected back to you, on a sensation level, based upon those conclusions that you drew, which slam, or punish, and shut down the wholeness of the heart.

d5oadThose dreams where we feel like we can’t move, or like we can’t break out of an inertia, often linger the longest with us after we wake up. Yet, in the dream world, sometimes we’re not supposed to run away from the aliens or monsters: what seems alien might just be a friendly part of our self that we are irrationally afraid of – it is us that has turned them into the bad guys. Most often, an inner connection is trying to be made, and if we can get some insight into that through the imagery, we can facilitate the new alliance – and forward movement. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my dream, I see a spaceship in the atmosphere. In fact, I see a number of spaceships. And, all of a sudden, one of them kind of does this little roll, as the thing goes plunk, and hits the ground. 

And at first I thought it was crashing, but then, when another one does it, I realize that they’re landing. And so I have this deep, deep inner inflection, as if I know from somewhere – an ancient part of myself – that when something like this happens, you should hide. You don’t just sit around to see what’s going on. 

But because that inflection didn’t come through loudly enough, and in the outer, in my senses, it’s never happened before, so instead of following those instincts, my curiosity keeps me in the outer. And what I knew when I hit that inflection was that there happened to be a little spot that only I knew about, that was in the back of a closet in a kind of a little hidden room back there, that I could go in there and wait things out. Just get still, and wait things out, and I wouldn’t be found.

Instead of following my better judgment, the next thing I know is I see myself in kind of what’s like a large warehouse area, and the exits are all blocked. And there first were like some kind of execution, or some kind of service, guys, that came and blocked all the entrances. And then a person comes up to me and says, “What they are doing is systematically killing everyone.” I am told that the only way is to make a run for it, and that I have to figure this out. In other words, I have to figure this out for them because they can’t seem to move. Maybe I can move. 

And there I am wandering around in this place, too; it’s spacious enough that you can avoid more and more of them starting to come in. Some of them don’t attack, and others, big guys, but they’re all slow, they can’t run or anything – they just kind of slowly track you down. They’re like executioner types. 

One of them carries a big club, and then if he touches a person with the club they scream out in pain; it’s like being electrocuted. He doesn’t club them, he just touches them with this club. And another one tries to tackle me. He’s a little different type of character, I don’t know what he’s all about, but he doesn’t quite get me by the ankles – so I elude him.

So, essentially, these aliens, it’s not like they’re adroit, and they’re powerful, but they’re slow. But I no longer have this option of getting out of sight to let this pass. So I need to kind of follow the cue, which is I’ve got to be able to run away, which means to get out of the building. If I do that there’s no way of catching me.

So I kick at a piece of plywood near an exit, and, to my surprise, it gives, gives way, just enough that I should be able to slip outside. But my problem that I’m having is in jumpstarting myself, how do I motivate myself? How do I move? I need to move more expeditiously. But it’s as if I’m in kind of a traumatic, dumbed-down trance. I kind of know what needs to be done, but, again and again I’m my own worst enemy because I can’t seem to come out of a stupor. It’s all I can do, in other words, to fight a disorientation spell that’s immobilizing me from taking and acting with definitive steps – because I can go a lot faster than they can, but somehow or another, I can’t. 

And so what I’m describing is a stupor and amnesia that comes over me when I am overwhelmed by conditions, in the outer, that stifle the coming together of an inner awareness. So I’m not in a state of being complete. In order to be complete, a human being has a natural connection to everything that is happening. However, I’m not in that condition. I’ve lost this natural, overall awareness. I’m stifled, in other words. The acuity that is meant and able to be there, within, is kind of like veiled, or just out of touch. 

So I move around in the outer in an aimless, somewhat curious, not motivated, not properly alarmed, trance. This condition can be so bad that I can find that I’m no longer able to move when I need to move. And I know I have this acuity, I just can’t pull it out. And it occurs when I fail to follow an inflection from the inner that invokes my attention. The failure to adhere to this keeps the coming alive from coming into a clarity, and thus I am real shut down and veiled from what is a much needed access; all access within. 

See, where I’m really at in all of this is I’m in a spaciousness, and I need something to come through as a clarity, in a time way. And, if it comes through, then I carry the knowingness that I need, and can act in a way that I need; nothing can constrain me. But if it can’t come through, I’m in a trance; in a spell. 

So what is going on is, this is actually a repeat dream. I’ve had these kind of dreams before, just like you had your kind of dream before. In my case, I’m unable to fire up with my usual out-breath intensity. So, when I’m like this, I’m unable to generate what fires up, it’s like a type of momentum, or coming through, that’s attained and accessible, with ease, from the out-breath. It is as if my timing is out of sync, I just can’t find it. 

So what is the dream suggesting? The dream is pointing out that when in a spaciality of the in-breath, I lack the timing aliveness to come out to touch the spaciousness, and, therefore it creates the reaction and relatability that’s needed. And that my sense of closing the senses, you know, of the spaciousness, and getting real still, that’s the option by which, then, something can pass and then this timeline of things could return. But in this dream, I don’t have this option to go out and explore for that.
