We’ve all heard the phrase: cooler heads will prevail. In this dream, the dreamer is actually putting a bucket of ice on her head to change the energetic of the situation. Sometimes we feel we know what is best for a given situation and we seek to take control of things to usher in the desired outcome. Yet, our inner lives understand that our best intentions can sometimes be a trap of our own making – if we disconnect from the flow of things and start our own tangent.

Jeane: I only remember my dream last night, I think I was a man in it, again. And, initially, I’m at a large swimming pool, and I’m a young man, like 20s, and I seem to be playing with the son of a woman. There’s another friend that’s joining in, too. And we’re playing in the swimming pool with this boy, like we want him to learn to swim and to have fun in the pool – and his mother’s a little indifferent. 

Then it feels like what we’re doing is we’re having to go to court because the father of the boy, who’s separated from the mother, has seen that we’re taking an interest in the boy, and, even though he doesn’t do anything with the child, he doesn’t want anyone else to do anything with the child, either. So we have to go to court. 

And we want to go to court to see if we can, I think, get custody, or at least be involved in helping a child to swim and his life. But, when we go to court, the court is kind of an informal family court where we’re sitting around a table, and, as we sit around the table, somebody comes, and as I sit at the table, it’s like they’re trying to make me sit there with a bucket of ice on my head. But it’s not well balanced. And they keep trying to get it balanced right. 

And it feels like, in one situation, I’m actually able to sit there and balance the bucket of ice on my head. In the second situation it’s like I finally make them remove the bucket because it’s not well balanced, and the focus really needs to be on whatever the hearing is about for the boy. I don’t feel like it’s really relevant whether I can balance the bucket of ice or not. I want the focus to be on what’s going to be best for the boy, and whether we can be involved in his life, and in teaching him how to swim.

John: It’s a very interesting dream from the standpoint that you have a mother in there that is not properly engaged, you have a father who has a certain feel about how the boy is, then you have yourself that has a particular kind of quality sense of how you see something needing to unfold – and you’re caught in that little sense. 

In other words, it’s not coming in the usual channels where something is connected and intertwined in a family-oriented way, because the mother is checked out. And the father has his own particular sense, but is more connected with the child than the mother. And that you have established a relationship that is attracted to, or addicted to, a particular quality or way of being that you feel you can work and help facilitate with regards to the child. 

Now, this is a trap. This is a spiritual illusion, because what you’re identifying, that you see that you can help, or that you can facilitate, with regards to the child has to do with a particular schematic sense that is capturing your attention and causing you to look in this particular way. 

And so, because this is outside of the norm, in other words, this is something that normally, if it follows a proper protocol, would be one that involves the parents, and you are interceding into this protocol with an energetic mannerism that you’re carrying inside that is going to supersede, or go over the top, because you have a sense that you have a better way. 

In your dream, the mother is completely unaware, is actually in a total stupor. But you have the father who is pointing out that there could be easily something more about this child that’s important in terms of parenting, in terms of being raised in a way that has a life that comes through the parents, that wouldn’t happen in terms of this outside influence that can intercede and press itself forward, and win the fancy of the situation, energetically; perhaps win the fancy of the situation energetically.
Would this be appropriate, or good, for the situation? Somehow you know that what you’re doing is like a type of addiction. In other words, you’re caught in what it is that you feel adamant about. I mean, willing to go to court about it and the whole thing. And a part of you is looking at this and even sees that you have this crazed side of yourself that you can get intent with, and push things along with. 

And you realize that somehow or another this is a habituation or something. But it doesn’t mean that you know how to let go of the habituation. But knowing that it’s a type of habituation is a big help. And what points out that you have a sense of what you’re doing as interfering, or limiting, something more that can possibly be there, but you can’t seem to stop yourself from doing what you are drawn to do to try to get a little better spaciality, you take the ice bucket on your head, which is your way of trying to chill out, or to settle yourself down, so that you can come to a better recognition, so that you can catch up with your true self.

Is our unconscious a drama queen, or king? Sometimes the images seem so out there that we have to wonder what is really going on. Today’s dream is a good example, where our dreamer is living in a stifling society and seeking to break free. And they’re taking babies away from people! Yet isn’t every new project, or understanding, like a new birth that needs to be nurtured and helped to grow? And when there is resistance to the growth of this new energetic, it can seem like it is being stolen from us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I just remember one dream. And, in this dream, I seem to be raised in a society that’s fairly regimented. And as they’ve gone around, and everybody’s kind of quiet about it, as we have children, they take the babies from us. And we’re coming up to an area where they’re going to take the babies – and I stopped the process. 

And I have others with me. And I realize we’re going to break away, but, as I examine the details of how the society’s being run, and what’s going to be done, I realize the problem that we’re going to have is that everybody’s been kind of bred to ignore emotion. And so if we’re going to have a society where we actually choose our relationships, and raise our own children, we’re going to have to deal with emotions – and none of us have done that.

But we’re going to take the babies and break away, anyway. But I just realize it’s going to be more of a challenge than people realize.

John: So you’ve gone back to pointing at something that isn’t even in the Bible, but that Christians seem to believe, and that’s a type of Rapture. Actually, this comes from the sense that there is a depth, deep, deep within, in which something is able to go into an omniscience, and omnipresence, somewhere else. 

And then there are all of the ideas about how that is possible, that are all conceptual ideas. But deep, deep, deep within there is this sense that there is something more like that. And it is because there is this sense of a something more, even though we noodle it out in various bifurcated ways to try to create an imagery, because there is that sense it’s an aspect, it’s a quality, and it’s a manner that touches a beyond-of-the-beyond stillness.

And it is from that that we have somehow, sort of, kind of have a kind of equivocation that is more than what we can attain, or know. And so that’s probably why it is said that there is no God but God, or that man can never be God, or if he goes around like in some of the stories that are told and starts pronouncing himself to be this, that, and the other, that that’s a type of blasphemy, because it is a state, or it is a quality, in which something is in an omniscience and omnipresence wholeness, and it is the only thing that there is, and that any way and manner in which we see ourselves, or are, is uniquely separate from that. 

So what you were doing was you were pondering with this sensation, you’re circling around this sensation, and in that circling around that sensation you orbed to something that was the best you could concoct, in a symbolic imagery way inside of yourself, of something that’s in the beyond-of-the-beyond. That’s why I called it a kind of Rapture, or something, which is like a mentality way of giving up, saying, okay, I give up and something is just going to have to come, and, whatever its criteria is, take things out of here. 

It’s a very peculiar kind of way of dreaming that tends to be at the end of a sort of exhaustion, or exasperation. For me, it’s an exasperation, in terms of recognizing that everything that I can possibly note, or denote, is caught on some quality of the breath. And the fact that it’s caught on some quality of the breath that is limited, and is in a state of decay as a consequence, and that that quality of the breath that it’s caught on is pointing out that I’m still journeying, and that journeying is still a quality of holding out, and holding onto, some aspect of a manifested waywardness. 

And so then one sits in this conundrum, because is spirit energy as good as it gets? Meaning being able to be outside of time and space, so to speak, as a kind of vibratory essence, that is somehow or another linked from top to bottom, or more top to bottom, because of the letting go. Is that the best that it gets? Because even that has its qualms to it; even that is not the absoluteness.

Why do we get angry? Well, there are surely thousands of books to explain this, but at its core isn’t it a disconnection from a flow – whatever flow we might be on? So much anger seems to arise from being stopped from where we want to go, whether that place is an emotion, or a resolution, or an accomplishment, or a relationship, or a connection. Perhaps it is disconnection that is the trigger, because something in our system naturally doesn’t want to be disconnected. This might be useful to keep in our conscious awareness. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The theme of the dreaming has to do with getting cut off from the stillness. Well, the meditation dream, and getting cut off, was the result of an accentuated conduct based upon me reacting and carrying on the other day like if I did, for all to see. An accentuated conduct that cast a spell upon my heart, that was the result of a reaction that was purposefully disrespectful, because I had my righteousness.

So, in this dream, I find myself taking a test in which there are 10 questions. I have four hours to complete the test. The test is based upon a natural, inner, heartfelt knowingness. I do the first seven questions in about two hours before I reach a point where I am cut off from what is naturally known. I’ve taken this test before and not gotten very far; the time would run out. This time, I have three questions left in about one and three-quarter hours; in other words, it took me just a shade over two hours to do the first seven just based upon an innerness that just knew.

So I have about one and three-quarter hours left to do the final three questions. I’ve also been given the Book of Life to refer to. I haven’t needed to use the Book of Life for the first seven questions because I have made that journey; I don’t have to go through the reflective repeating and this, that, and the other. There’s no veiling: the access was direct. 

But now, with these next three questions, I’ve reached kind of what was meant to be, so to speak, I’ve gotten to the point now where I will have to contend with where I am still stuck to catch up with those answers.

I don’t know if this is possible in the approximately one and three-quarter hours that remain for those three questions, even though the first seven were done in two hours. In other words, I’ve reached the point where something is veiled in regards to those three questions, in terms of my awareness, or connection, my access to the stillness, behind the journey, outside of the journey, or the Book of Life that is the manifestation of things. 

So I must do my best, and I’m about to adopt the viewpoint that this isn’t possible, when out of the corner of my eye I notice that you just finished, so it proves it can be done.

So the significance of the dream is, you might say, it has this quality of being able to note, feel, and hopefully let go. Those are like challenges for stillness to be there. However, if one is caught on the breath, in terms of some intensity, or rigidity, or righteousness, that stuns the overall oneness from mirroring out of the heart. Thus, stillness is lost.

When shut off from the stillness, you then get caught up in having to endure reflective patterns that accentuate a quality of hopelessness and bewilderment. So, in other words, you’re caught on the journey, some aspect within the journey – it’s on the breath.

This dream and meditation somewhat redeemed me from most, but not all, of the anguish associated with not fully adhering to the stillness of it all. I must walk through the door, so to speak, or not. That is my choice, it seems, at this point. 

In other words, I can tell how much I’ve been pulled out of this quality that I fell so deep in, but I can easily see myself go back into it again, too. It’s almost like I reserve the right to be outrageous, outrageously reckless. Or thus to repeat and repeat the same old patterns still holding me back – which are dumb and demeaning. So it’s almost like this is resulting in a type of seeing that is much like: what shall it be?
