Good Counsel

CriWe have seen chase dreams with narrow escapes, and images where everything is coming together just as needed. So, if we are all the characters in our dreams, what do those two opposite experiences say about us? That we’re complicated, and that we have many pieces that really just want to be part of one thing. Yet to get there, we sometimes have to chase and catch, we sometimes have to woo, we sometimes have to invite in politely. In other words, some parts of us are more wounded or wary than others, and bringing them in from their separate or alienated state is something our dreams are trying to help us do.

Jeane: So, as the dream continues, I go to a counseling office where I’m starting work and the clients I have scheduled, at a certain time, don’t show up – and I’m somewhat concerned. One of them does phone, I think it’s a very brief phone call, or maybe there was just a message left, because I can tell that it’s not just one man but it’s two, that they’ve been traumatized maybe by war, and they drink, or do something. And I do want to get them into the office to be seen, but they’re very suspicious of coming into any agency, or working with anyone. I can’t even get the one to talk to me.

And I’m kind of pondering all that because I was working in the office and doing paperwork, but it feels like I don’t really see any clients that day and I’d had them scheduled, but they didn’t show up.

So I leave there and I go somewhere else, and when I’m at this other building one of the two of them shows up. The other one I feel like is out in the hallway somewhere, and I’m able to have a bit of a dialogue with him and set it up so they will come in. And I want him to bring his friend in for regular counseling, but I’m also explaining that if they come to counseling they have to come to counseling sober, you know at least for that time, because otherwise it’s like if you’re drinking you just retain what you learned when you’re drinking. You’d forget it when you got sober.

I’m trying to explain a little bit to them. and I’m trying to get him to get his friend through his paranoia about coming in to any room, or any agency, and getting it set up for them to come in. And I know that in some ways when they do come in they’d want to overwhelm you with how long they’d want to be there, and so I’m also trying to set some limits that there’s only so much you can take in at one time, you know, that we would have to have time limited appointments. It just feels like I’m trying to explain to them how that works.

John: So you’re describing the process in which you come to understand that there is a means of moving around, this moving around – which is really inside of yourself, but you see it as over a distance and such – upon which you can come to catch up with a deeper aspect, or essence, of what is real, or what the realness is.

And you tend to be inclined to viewing it as something that you access, or aspire to accessing, as opposed to it just being naturally there inside of yourself to be reached, or discovered, or unveiled, or unfrozen, or whatever the capacity is that one does, to justify sitting in an amnesia.

You then progress this to the point where you’re looking at parts of yourself that you need to somehow cater to, that you need to somehow or another assist or to help, that you need to somehow or another embrace. That it’s not sufficient that you take and have a depth that you can reach, or find, inside of yourself – it is meaningless unless it is something that can go and touch, and reach, all parts of yourself that are still astray.

And, of course, these are parts of yourself that you see need to take a step forward: that they need to show up for guidance, for counseling, for help. But then you come to realize that these parts of yourself that don’t show up, to the degree to which you’re not taking and closing the gap, that it’s not that easy, that you have to proceed to that, you have to go out of your way to touch that, to find that, and that when you do you’re bringing something together at the same time. That’s why it’s said that a teacher finds the student and, of course, this applies on a lot of levels.

Well, in your dream, that is kind of what you’re doing when you take and realize that you can get off of a certain pedestal and go and find, seek out, reach out to the parts of yourself that aren’t showing up. In other words, yes, you can take a position where you can expect it to come, but that doesn’t always work in that there are times when you have to reach out in order to touch something. And that’s why it is said that, it may look different, but the teacher being a proper teacher is actually selecting or going to the student. You know, it’s not that the student is clamoring to the teacher. That’s an illusion. It’s the teacher that’s making the accommodations always for the student.

That principle, if you were to sum it up in a word, for it to be effective it has to be invisible, or otherwise the student might get to thinking that there is something going on that’s important in terms of themselves, or something, and go off into a head trip or something on a spiral. So the teacher is most effective if they follow the principle; in other words, having the means and the ability to love without leaving traces. And that’s half of it. The other half, of course, which applies in a different way, is to fly without leaving a shadow.

So your dream, when you put that whole thing together, shows that you’re meant to have a means to connect to something deep, deep, deep inside and you just need to come to know that that is a wholeness that comes from you, you don’t go seeking it out somewhere. And when you catch up with that, recognized that way, then you exude it into the environment. You don’t expect the environment to change to your predilection. You exude it into however and wherever you put your attention.

It’s kind of like your pleasure to do that because you found it in the whole. You realize that it’s all the whole, and you realize that there isn’t two things going on, so you touch in that fashion, naturally, which is the principle of loving without leaving traces, flying without leaving a shadow, a shadow of some separation or something being kind of the motif behind it all. It’s not that behind it all. There are no shadows. It is just one thing, and one thing only, having a relationship with itself.

And so you took and you went from a kind of overtness, a kind of separation, or distinction, where something is expected to come just because you are still somewhat linked to the idea that you have to go somewhere in order to learn something. Therefore if you’re counseling that something has to come to you – instead of realizing that you are able to do this constantly, as opposed to conditionally.

A Vibration Within

soundwave-sound-wave-3d-rendering-oWe all know what it’s like to have trouble downloading something from the Internet: if we don’t have the exact ID and password, it’s impossible to do; i.e., if we’re off by one number, we’re not “close.” Well, it is the universal nature of energy that like is attracted to like, so if we want to attract kindness into our lives, then we have to begin to radiate kindness ourselves – and that radiation will energetically draw in the frequencies of kindness as well. But if we say we want kindness, but radiate judgment and anger, kindness will not be able to find us. This is why “the rich get richer,” because if you already have a quality (energetically), you will always attract more of it.

Jeane: I wish I could pull more of my dream through because it felt like I was just struggling with it. And in the dream it was like I was downloading experiences, and I was doing it with somebody else, a man.

And then there was a series of experiences that I was having trouble downloading, or uploading, however you would consider it, and I had to get things aligned in order to do it, and then I had to judge whether or not it was kind of going to be an overload for the person, or not, or the sequence, or how they were stored right now.

And I just seemed to be struggling to get that right, wanted to get a certain balance with it, and I was trying to juggle it, and going over it, and evaluating it, maybe discussing it, just trying to get it right to download. That’s all I really remember about the dream.

John: So you were just going through, constantly trying to contend with the sorting of something out that stood in between two things from happening, or coming together – right?

Jeane: Yeah.

John: Well, that was the nature of the theme of the dreams last night, was that there is a need to aspire to the vibration within, which pulls together, and aligns, on various levels.

And, in the outer, it is often times expressed as some insignificant thing that seems to be a complexity, or issue, and it’s generally considered fairly trite, you know, when you’re dreaming it.  And if you can just resolve it, then the sensation is that a flow is then possible, or intertwining is able to happen.

It is easy to not see or notice the dilemma, or the small, trite issue, and when one doesn’t notice this the energetic condition that they carry is one of bewilderment. And when you walk around in a bewilderment you take on moods, and mannerisms, that weigh upon the heart because you are not in flow with the outer from within – and are instead caught in a conundrum of the reflections in the outer that predominate.

Something Real

Hilma_af_Klint_SvanenBeing in service to the whole is an often misunderstood idea. It can encompass the selfless acts of good samaritans, yet at a higher level it is the conscious shifting of energy, from out of balance into balance, or even cleaning up coarse energies and elevating them to a higher vibration. We do this by the aggregation of our energetic life: whatever level of vibration we hold radiates and affects the environment around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.) This post was originally published in February 2014.

Jeane: It felt like my dreams were way too wispy to pull out. I know the last one I was having, it felt like I was a woman and it’s almost like I would like I would go into a building, it felt like a bank building or some kind of commercial building, and whatever was going on there it was almost like I tried to draw fire, like maybe there was gunfire going on, or something that kind of diffused the situation inside, that if I could pull the attention, or I could be there, maybe I could shift what was happening.

And it might just be something that was being caused by some little boys playing there, but if I could deflect their attention it might make a difference. And I would leave and then maybe I would come back and try to deflect the situation in another setting. And then go back to someplace like a railroad station. It’s just all really vague, I couldn’t pull it out.

John: So what you were doing was, you were sacrificing yourself, so to speak, to draw the attention of an energetic?

Jeane: it didn’t feel like a sacrifice, it felt more like if I were there I could do something to draw the attention of the situation and help shift it.

John: I think it’s talking about this quality that is natural to the feminine nature that is able to take a situation in which you can hear various energetics that are in the environment, and it can help those energetics see themselves, because it is able to work from a place of, well it doesn’t hold a judgment, it holds an energetic space, so that those energetics get grounded.

In other words, I think it’s saying that you have the ability to take, no matter how disoriented something may be, or disconnected, or unbalanced something may be, that you can go and, in a non-judgment state, because you can see that behind that is something that is valid, that is real, that just can’t catch up with itself. And you can take and absorb the energy of those ideas and awaken or quicken, with your focus or attention, that which lies within.

That then takes what exists in the outer and enables it to see itself as being unbalanced or misaligned. And it actually does more than just see itself as misaligned, I mean that kind of goes away, too, it tends to see how it is that it is meant to be in terms of a wholeness. 

In other words, the parts that are considered askew and astray suddenly make sense, in terms of the equation or picture of things.

It reminds me of this example. It’s a story in which, I believe it involved the Dalai Lama who came to visit this person, who took the Dalai Lama, as if he didn’t know any better, into a bar scene where you had every imbalance or peculiarity going on that you could possibly imagine.

And the Dalai Lama laughed and carried on and acted as if this was of no consequence whatsoever, essentially taking the energetic of that space into himself, but seeing it for how it was on a whole other level.

And so, as a consequence, the Dalai Lama was emanating a quality that wasn’t out of balance with the place that the Dalai Lama was in. Instead was in balance, and therefore balanced out that environment for those who had the ability to inflect inside themselves and catch the reflection of how it really is, vibrationally, to the eyes of the Dalai Lama in a state where it all makes sense.

So, the point being is that, in life, the vagaries and mannerisms and attitudes that you generally see are imbalances that exist that, technically behind that, those imbalances, is something that is real. And that if a person is grounded enough, whole enough, complete enough, accepting enough of their own energetic being, it can take that and see that for what it is – and not get all twisted and reactive and rejective of those conditions.

To be able to absorb like that is what it takes to take something that’s in disarray and bring it back to where that disarray catches up with its own wholeness – or has that capability.

So I think you’re dreaming that and you’re realizing that you can do that to a greater capacity.
