332esSleeping with someone is an interesting symbology when it arises in the dream world. We all know that when a physical relationship begins, it complicates things. Issues that didn’t exist yesterday need to be addressed today. As part of our inner life, when we form attachments to things, rather than letting go to the flow, we create just such complications. So what may begin innocently enough, has ramifications in the unfolding of everything from that moment forward. That is why spiritual evolution seeks a state of (inner) non-attachment; only then can we truly be free to join the greater flow.

Jeane: It felt like my dream was a little complex last night. I’d been reading a book on tai chi, before I went to sleep, that also dealt with the basic philosophy of Taoism, so I don’t know if that influenced it or what, but I’m pretty sure it had at least four stages, maybe five.

And all I remember of the very first dream, or the first stage, was that I was up at a mountain lake ice skating with some other people. That’s all I remember, my impression of that first dream.

Then, the next two stages I’m pretty sure were represented by a deep blue line followed the next stage with a deep pink line.

John: The first part is your working something through with an action, but then to that action you’re adding a concentration and focus. That’s what you’re doing first, and then second adding the concentration and focus.

A concentration and focus, in a pure way, is not necessarily something that is lost in a differentiation. It can be. In other words, that’s a step in the process of letting go is to be able to have a focus and concentration that isn’t that of the ego.

Jeane: Now, in the second dream that I associate with the deep blue line, vertical line, it feels like I’m visiting… I’m young like maybe in my 20s or 30s, 20s probably, and so are these guys. I visit two guys that live together.

And this whole dream takes place at night. And I seem to live in some kind of a little informal place that’s near an ocean. It feels more like Hawaii, or something. And the three of us have been friends for the most part, but this time I sleep with one of the two, the one who probably seems a little less basic, probably a little, I don’t know if brighter is the right word. It’s like his buddy is more like a surfer type, I would say, and he’s probably got a little more to him.

We’re all friends, but I sleep with the one, but then this changes the dynamic between the three of us. And I’m examining, kind of reflecting a little, on what that change is going to mean because now the two of us need a little more privacy, or something.

And I walk down from the hut down to the ocean, it’s all at night, thinking I’m going to go swimming. There’s another woman, who’s maybe a friend of ours, that suddenly comes. I’ve invited them if they want to come to join me in swimming, but it feels like they’re kind of behind me, or lagging behind me a little bit, because when I get down to the ocean I realize I can’t go in because on the waves in the ocean is a lot of seaweed, and one would get tangled up in it.

But I do go down right to where the water is coming, next to the shore, and on the shore, and I see these tiny little green frogs and I really like that kind of frog, and so I poke one a little just to make it swim because I’m just kind of fascinated with those little frogs. But I do realize I can’t go swimming. That’s the second stage associated with the blue line.

John: In this particular format, instead of there being a complete, total, letting go, in other words, where you’re just in an energetic that is able to be between the two shores, so to speak, you know down by the water, you find yourself as having taken a position, an energetic position by having slept with one of them.

So, instead of the three of you turning into a four of a kind of whole completeness and overallness, that’s a stillness and an emptiness, you’ve disturbed that condition and, in disturbing that condition, you’ve complicated the energetic lines so that you could get tangled in seaweed and stuff like that.

However, the dream, it’s almost as if this is something that is meant to happen, and that you then have to back thread from that in order to sort something out again, in terms of a way of letting go. In other words, the recognition of how this has suddenly discombobulated what had been a more natural overall openness. The reconciliation is in process in this dream, with these frogs or something, and I’m not sure what the symbolism of the frogs is, but they represent kind of a relief, the initial step to a relief from what has been a kind of step backwards that leads to a contanglement. They are kind of like a breaking openness type of relief. I can’t say just how it is. This is more of an association you have.

Jeane: Yeah, these are these little green frogs that I used to play with when I was a kid, in a lily pond, that they start out as tadpoles and then they transmute into a frog.

John: In other words, they represent something transformative for you.

Jeane: Yeah, and so that was the dream associated with the vertical blue line, and then there was a vertical pink line. I don’t know that I remember the dream associated with the pink line, as much as I remember that it had two stages, and one of them was tricky. It was like a vibration one had to get into and it was tricky.

And then there was a dream, but I think it actually followed the third stage, and in this dream it feels like I’ve come in from out of town and I’ve gone to a small place that, again, feels like it’s very simple. My dad is there. There’s other people there. It feels again almost like Hawaiian or something.

And I’m going into this rather simple area where everybody is, and they want me to give a talk on something. They sit around in chairs with little tables in front of them, and then I would be near a blackboard, and I come up to give a talk.

There’s a couple women that are usually there that are in charge of all of this, but when I go to give the talk it feels like some of the talk goes well, and some of it must bore some of the people there, because they just wander off. And then I’m kind of assessing how to relate, but all I can really do is just do what I know how to do, or what I know to talk about.

And then it feels like I go down the street, and maybe that night I sleep just down the block in another place, but when I come back the next day I have to bring back the bed I had taken down there, that I borrowed from someone there, and sort out, you know, what belonged to whom before I leave. And I don’t know whether I can come back here or not. That’s the dream I wish I had held onto a little bit more. It was harder to pull out.

John: Well the pink line is softer, isn’t it? You’re not using the pink line, yet, in a way in which you’re transporting something to the depth that it needs to be transported with. In other words, the pink line is you’re still shaping something. Instead of transporting it into a letting go emptiness, you’re still shaping something.

The blue line and such has to do with being able to have a quality of an egoless state of being, and yet there is still a kind of definition. The transformative of the frog energy is coming in, because you aren’t caught. You’re not literally caught in trying to force something to happen, projectively, with a kind of overt ego. But you’re still carrying a note.

And in the pink line, something is still unfolding in relationship to a quality; the dream is not saying that what you’re doing is harmful or bad or anything. In other words, it’s not like you’re being reprimanded in the dream. Instead you’re just being shown the way you are, you have a construct in which you’re bringing it.

Your use of the pink is you’re still experiencing it as something that is associated as part of yourself. In your way, you’re still playing with a strain of something. You’re recognizing that you’re something. You still have the news of the pink and, therefore, there is an effect that can affect things noticeably, as an aspect of your nature, but there is a greater depth that can be there if somehow or another you can let go of that, too.

You still have a kind of visibleness, a visibleness because you see that as still part of you – and that is you. That is correct. But your state is more real in terms of the idea that, ultimately, the unfoldment is that you are God. That pink is transformative, but it still is a strain.

In other words, it’s like the blue is a concentration, and in the concentration there’s a limitation. In the pink there is a letting go, but a letting go with a definition of some aspect of yourself in a realization kind of way, a greater realization, a kind of, you might say, consciousness, as opposed to a real wide-sweeping subconsciousness. I’m describing it like this to try to differentiate that there is an aspect of something, and this has yet to unfold further.

6lovers_1500-56a6e0673df78cf77290a757If we observe the natural world, we see that animals don’t second-guess themselves. They detect a stimuli in their environment, and they respond according to their nature and design. Humans are more sophisticated, yet we are still designed to respond freely, and naturally, to the stimuli in our environment. That’s what makes personal development seem so difficult: because we have been born into such an unnatural situation, the work of development is in unblocking the psychologies that prevent us from being natural to our design. And that requires that we face and acknowledge these psychologies. It is hard, but it’s the best work we can do.

Jeane: My dreaming felt like a bit of a jumble last night, and I only remember one dream very clearly. In that dream I’ve gone by a house that my friend, Mary, and her husband live in. They have a large garden and, in the dream, they also have a barn area and the house that they’ve fixed up. They’re going to be having some kind of a Halloween party.

So I’m going over there for the party, but when I go in the house I seem to have a really kind of strange outfit on because I’m halfway between deciding to dress up for Halloween and looking normal. I have my hair long, and all poofed-out. And I go around the house and I start climbing up on things, and I’m climbing and going up into secret attic areas with little openings into them. And sometimes I can get up into the attic area, and sometimes I can’t.

And then I come downstairs to where the people are coming. I feel like I’ve altered my appearance a little bit for Halloween, but not that much. I’m just in some in-between state.

And as the party’s winding down I come around, everybody’s out of the room, and I go over to a washing machine and it seems like I’ve turned a handle and some water has started to come out. And it takes me about two or three minutes to figure out how to turn that off. Then I’m going around the rooms again seeing some of the people. There are some women there that are kind of easy to be around, and some that are difficult to be around.

And Mary’s husband finds me and he seems really angry about something, and he thinks I’ve damaged this plant – and the people that have the house are going to charge him $1,000 for it. I kind of thought it was his house, but I must be confused, or maybe they live out in the barn and the house belongs to someone else.

The whole dream was like that. It was a little confusing with people coming and going all the time. But I tell him I’ll help share the cost, so that mellows him out, if there is a cost. It wasn’t clear there would be.

And then I go back and I see that the women that put on the party are now, at the end of the party, sitting down in the doorway and starting to want to collect money from people for having come to the party. And I think that’s all backwards. I can’t quite figure that out. It was something that should’ve been done beforehand if they were going to do it. So it just was all this jumbled up dream.

John: The theme of the dreaming has to do with going ahead and doing some action, or unfoldment. In other words, proceeding in a fashion, acting out in a fashion, in order to facilitate the process, or means, by which something from within can come out, can come through.

In other words, the scenario is that everything is kind of in a natural setup, in terms of how things are shaped. So once things are put into place, once something is shaped, then comes the unfoldment. And so the unfoldment has to do with a living out of an energy, and, when you live it out, that’s when you come to understand and appreciate how it actually is. In other words, that’s when something, then, comes from within to the outer.

Now, what kind of living out is involved? In other words, it’s as if it’s a process upon which you have to let go of yourself to unfold, and, when you do, then that which occurs, or goes through you, is able to transform and to change you. And whether that involves having to do anything in the outer, or not, well, the usual interpretational way of looking at things is to assume that it does. But it probably does not. It can, for some, however, but it doesn’t necessarily have to do that for others.

And so what you’re doing is this party that’s at Mary’s, Mary stands for an inflection of an area in which you are able to easily go, can influence or can affect, as a flow, and the going there and the participating is important. The energetic unfoldment is important. In other words, this is an image, but what the image is talking about is an energetic, and the unfoldment of the energetic is important in order to cause a greater realization to be there. And so if one doesn’t allow the energetic to unfold, one sits in a capacity that doesn’t necessarily have much going on – like the issues that you suddenly had having gone to this party. Everything got really jumbled

But by facing the energetic, that’s how something gets sorted out. So what is the scenario characterization of things that you’re asking this question about? Well, energetically, you’re apparently looking, and wondering, what is going on in relationship to how it is that you are experiencing something, vibrationally, inside of yourself. You’re wondering, okay, what is that about?

And one can go about in kind of a quiet, reserved way, or that can take on a dynamic that one lives. If it were to take on this dynamic, it would take and facilitate the breaking through of the parts of yourself that are normally kind of reserved, or hidden, or like in a mask. It would enable those parts of yourself to awaken, to come into the flow.

So, there comes a time, in other words, when your development on a consciousness level gets to the point where something is kind of choked, as far as the energy which needs to be lived. And so, hard to live because that’s when you face the unknown, and that’s when everything around you starts to become much more confusing again. It’s easier just to think that you’ve caught up with something but, rather than look at it very closely, you just leave it in a box and then something no longer is able to properly process through.

So there’s reluctance to do something, energetically, because to do something energetically is going to cause you to have to be confronted by things that are not there now, that are shadow sides and veils of yourself, that will have to be swept in or absorbed, taken in. You actually absorb these things.

When you’re taking and living an energetic you then absorb the abstractions, and you absorb those abstractions in order to have access to the energy that, then, only takes you to a point of greater confusion as you’re trying to then sort, and shift, things to determine what that’s all about.

Now, you’re doing all of this inside of yourself. Yes, to a certain degree you can part with this as a reflection in the outer, but the important thing is to catch up with the unfoldment from a depth inside of yourself – and to whatever degree you find yourself complimenting that by actions in the outer. That’s a whole other thing.

When you compliment that with actions in the outer, you do ground it, and you do make it rooted to the point where whatever it is that’s still in the way becomes issues, and complexities that you have to contend with.

But, otherwise, you can sit in kind of a la-la land and it can feel nice, it can be nice, but to properly break through to what it is that you are able to sense, and touch, at a depth inside of yourself, and also, then, from whatever the inner is that has already laid, or shaped something, as far as a pathway, you can go at this in a way so that it seems that there’s not much to have to contend with as obstacles, or you can take the energetic off, be a little louder in the energetic, and that then will cause you to have to come to grips with the effect, the change agent effect, of the energetic.

And when you have to come into contact with the change agent effect in the outer, just because the outer is reflective, and you’re never quite sure what all it’s reflecting, or is causing it to be reflected. When you contend with that, then you have put yourself into a need-to-know basis which then what needs to come through you, for your own edification, in terms of living this quality of energy, the information then can be provided.

So this whole thing starts off in which it’s being pointed out that the living, to be able to live a particular way that is awash inside yourself, to bring it out, is to find the hidden parts of yourself that are yet in a mask, causes you to come to grips with that front and center. And when you come to grips with that front and center, then you’re going to have to sort out and come to grips with understanding the confusing variables that are generally of a mental kind of nature, or masculine kind of nature. You’re going to have to contend with all of that in order to break through the confusion and bring things back down to what is comfortable, to what is at peace, which is the foundation of your all-encompassing inner side of yourself, which can sit more in a quietness.

Now the dilemma for the feminine, is the feminine is always trying to break out, but it is breaking out, in terms of its doingness, to ideas of what is going on, contributing and supporting the ideas of what is happening around in the atmosphere – and not listening more intently, and realizing, that when it comes out it is coming out in accordance with having to live, or bring through, something that it has as a basis of its energetic being.

Thus, like I say, it will cause one to have to contend with parts of themselves that are in a mask yet, and in having to contend with those parts they will then find that the scenarios that they are living out take on this whole jumble that is part of the process of taking in, and being able to sweep in, and to accommodate the whole. It’s easier to kind of sit in a limbo, but your dream is suggesting that something then comes out of the limbo, where one can sit in kind of a spiritual illusion fascination, and imagination. It’s suggesting that you’re to be taking this energetic more or less into an acting out, or living out, state.

And, when you do that, then what is needed for you to be able to do that will come through because you will have hit that need-to-know basis, as opposed to holding it in kind of an entrenched condition.

chandra-cats-eyeWhere does everything we see – the stars, the planets, the earth, even the human race – come from? It all originates from the realms of energy. We know this because if we are able to get to the essence of something, into the quantum levels, there is nothing there but particles of energy. So, if a human wants to reconnect to the everything, the only way to do that is through the energy that it is made from. And there is information in the energy, in the same way as our instinct can tell us instantly if there is danger ahead – it is reading energy. It can be described as having a “knowing,” but it is really just our system interpreting the intelligence in the energy it is connecting to, and we are capable of doing it with everything. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, I really kind of like this meditation dream, because it seemed like very clear-cut, except nothing is clear-cut. You’re between two worlds all the time, between the inner and the outer. You’re in the shoreline of things.

But, in the meditation dream, I see myself as being able to realize that there is a dreamworld, within, that is replete with vibrational images, just like in the outer. The difference is I do not have a very memorable connection to this, because the allure of the physical plane predominates and kind of keeps that from getting too settled in.

So I struggle to access the dreamworld and, to the degree I do, the whole thing can lose its rather spottiness when the denseness of the outer is not as pronounced and loud – so that it obliterates, or wipes out, the inner vibration by its quality of denseness. The outer vibration and images have a tendency of predominating so much that I am lucky when the inner world is able to get a word in otherwise.

I really have to struggle to catch up with the vibrational stillness within. For the longest time what I am able to experience is rather spotty, in other words intermittent, and I call the experience within, in which the vibrations that rise up from the inner overall stillness, as a coming from the higher self. I call the stillness to be the God essence.

Suddenly the inner dream experience goes through a transformation. In the dream, I see this transformation as being able to take inner vibrations, that unfold in their own language way, and I’m able to take each vibration statement and place this in a storyline.

In other words, instead of it being hard to remember and whatnot, I can just put it into an order just like you have sentences on a page, or lines on a page. I’m able to do this with such ease, because now I’m completely into the aliveness of this inner, with such ease that the inner story tells itself without any commercial pause from the outer physical plane being a more predominate magnetism.

I am suddenly aware that the inner, and the alignment, of the storylines therein are in their subtleness but, because I have taken them on so completely, they sniff out the outer that had been a denser magnetism loudness as I am suddenly able to see this as an all-pervading vibrational essence, as if this is who and what I am.

This experience provides new meaning to the statement that I am a thought of God. My inner awareness is so astounding that the outer motif takes on the obvious lesser reflective octave that had been louder, and dominant, is now kind of trite by comparison, in that I find myself as having a hard time identifying with the outer, now that I have no doubt where the all-pervading and all-encompassing vibrations and images emanate. In other words, they rise up from the stillness and you can see all of this in a dreamworld; a deep, deep inner dreamworld.

And the significance is, last night’s inner dreamworld was so alive that I have no problem, by way of association, in knowing this innerness as a predominant, and predestined, force, and the outer reflections as bifurcations that are an acting-out movie script upon the screen called manifestation.

What I have come to realize is how foolish I am to be making such a big deal out of the outer movie reel script upon the plane of manifestation, when, at my disposal, is an inner that encompasses the essence of stillness. In other words when there is the vibration that rises up from the stillness to take on kind of an all-pervasive aliveness, and yet still be close to the stillness.

So I wake up from the plane of the soul, I mean, because God’s a stillness in a hidden essence, and you could also substitute certain words in for God. You could call Him soul, as one way of doing it. You can also call Him sound, or the Word, in other words, because all things are created out of that, that’s the flip side of something that’s called manifestation. You can call Him all these different words.

So I wake up from the plane of the soul, which is like the other side, shocked by what I beheld and how real it was in such an all-pervasive way. The outer, by comparison, seems like a misalignment in which I create bifurcations, that I take as real, but come to now know and come to know are delusional inflections in an outer density.

From real deep within there is a stillness that is the engine room for everything in the universe, upon which the outer realm of God’s essence is a freedom of choice for man to play out reflective aspects of these inner vibratory, all-pervasive thoughts and, in doing so, we have the embodiment of creation as a result of such efforts.

So the result that seems is apparent is it now seems that from the depth of a stillness in which the vibratory God essence thoughts arise, that, if I remain still, from the depth of this plane to be experienced as an outer after-effect reflection in creation exists – providing I take a step back from the idea of having a piece of the action. When I do that, then, I see this as the divine Will. The thought is like a type of divine Will that I have access to, that, in this dream, is akin to God thinking from the inner absolute.

So the question that arises is: so is the God essence stillness, that encompasses the universe, something every human being can find hidden within the depths of themselves, or is there such dominant, dense outer vibratory diversity that man is never able to really know what is going on – because man is unable to truly catch up with the essence of that Will? If this catching up to the thought of God were to occur, then from the inner stillness within is a rising up from the stillness of God’s essence acted out by man in the outer as manifestation.

The divine Will that man accesses requires a man to set out, to act out, from a lower-self personal way, that’s oriented as a reflective, and the effect is really then the embodiment of the creator within as being thyself, in an embodiment. So that’s the meditation dream.
