We all know the story of the snake-oil salesman with the healing elixir, and every day we hear about some new item that will cure everything and change our life. But, in reality, there isn’t one thing. As humans, we are a multiplicity, and a balanced diet includes the right kind of energetic foods. Said another way, we don’t want to lock ourselves in to any pattern or limitation in our processes. If we do so consciously, we can assay the energies we are dealing with on the move, only then deciding to let them go or keep the connection.

Jeane: So, in my second dream, there’s a young man and a young woman. And they meet, almost like at something like a fair grounds, or at least a place where groups of people have come, because each of them, especially the woman, I think the woman is there with her family, she seems to be helping her family promote the selling of some product. And it’s a product that maybe has helped her become healthy after having been ill. 

And you have the sense that maybe the young man had done something similar. Well, they meet and they’re attracted. And he even does something to show her that he really likes her by bringing her something, I think it was either a rainbow trout, or a salmon, or some kind of food. But she’s really not able to receive it because her family immediately begins taking her away to go somewhere else, to, again, be promoting something that she’s selling that makes you healthier. 

And so then he begins observing this process and realizes that what had maybe begun as something that they were doing to become healthier, the families are now making their whole living off this. It’s like they even travel in a sleigh, and the kid is with them, and maybe he’s in a similar situation that mirrors it. And then they developed a food that they’re selling at these fairs and other places that supports the whole family now. 

But, because of this, they try to keep her and him separate because now the whole family’s making a living off of something that was initially supposed to get one person healthier. And they don’t want that person to form a relationship or do anything that would cause them to go off from this process. 

So he’s kind of trying to break that cycle now, to kind of make a connection with her because it feels like she and he don’t even particularly like the food anymore. And they’re realizing the families, this is like becoming a way of life, and they want to break away from it. But you don’t know whether they can, or not, because I wake up.

John: So you’re staying completely on theme to what the issue is, which has to do with things that wake up or open up, and that you’re using this in kind of a tale, a fairy tale, way in which you have qualities of perceptions of what is the energetic, or food of life, that one needs to partake of?

And that the whole thing kind of starts off with the fact that the influence of the environment, or in this case the family environment, is such that it is indicating what food is to be projected as meaningful. Thus, you can have these barriers or gaps in life in terms of the fact that things have been screened in a certain capacity so that you only experience a certain quality or sense of food, up to a certain particular degree, to which you don’t waver. 

But you’re realizing that instead of there being a demarcation line in life, in that regard, you’ve come to realize that there should be a fascination, instead – the flip side. In other words, in Sufism, for example, one of the practices is to take something that you really don’t like and learn to accept it or embrace it, and bring it close to yourself. Because if you take something that you don’t like and are unable to bring it close to yourself, then something gets lost. 

Or, in terms of like, for example, the practices that the Chistis were just going through, is that you deny yourself a certain thing, like a certain food, or certain habits that you’ve come to appreciate as being meaningful, that you use for yourself to, somehow or another, these patterns are something that you just find and see for yourself as important. You take a position in which you refrain from that, you deny that, you shut that down for a while and see how it is that you cope when you are not able to be like this. 

In other words, these are practices where you go out of your way to play with this. This is not what you’re doing, though, in the dream. Instead, what you’re noticing in the dream is that the deeper truth behind the idea, which is the concept of coming to love thy neighbor as thyself, that you come to recognize, and have developed a fascination, and a greater part of your beingness is able to come together. 

And then you use, for your image purposes, the quality of masculine and feminine when you can take two distinct types of societal development and bring them together. And you find out that when you bring that together, and then you incorporate the idea of rainbow trout, or wherever, rainbow being the colors of life, that the colors of life can open up when things are able to co-mingle and intertwine. 

It eventually came across didn’t it, in the end, where this actually bridged a barrier, you being the person who was bridging a barrier between the two sides that way? By breaking away from families you’re using the breaking away in a different octave, in which that which is one way, in a family mannerism, you are breaking that. You ultimately end up pulling a particular sight and awareness together.

The masculine and the feminine are different yet complementary energies. They each have their strengths and are better adapted for certain roles and purposes. And each of us has these energies within us. To become truly balanced is to know when to utilize these energies to find the best way forward in whatever we are dealing with. We know that when we have the right tool for the job, the job is much easier; energies work in a similar way.

Jeane: The first dream I was having when I woke up, it felt like in that dream that there was a group of people. And, as people would try to come together as couples, what was confusing was that some of the people that you thought were men were actually women, or vice versa, people you thought were women were actually men. 

So this created a confusion when people tried to get together as couples. And it felt like I was trying to sort out how you worked with that. That’s the main element I remember from that dream.

John: Well you’re using a symbolism in which you’re trying to sort something out, in which, as you say, you’re seeing things as masculine when they’re feminine, and feminine when they’re masculine. 

What that means is that you’re developing an awareness to recognize how energies aren’t in a set way, that who we are, and how we are, has elements of development, on all levels, that we are able to catch up with. 

Well, it’s supposed to take that more. In other words, you come to see and recognize that there are all of these variables and elements in life. And then you’re meant to take that to something more.

Jeane: Yes. It was like some people were trying to get together, but then you couldn’t really quite get together because one person wasn’t who the other thought they were – and I was trying to figure out how to sort that out.

John: In other words, what you’re doing there is, as you’re becoming aware of all of these traits, or all these qualities, that exist in an overall capacity way, what you call some being masculine, some being feminine, and vice versa, meaning ways in which you’re not accustomed to seeing things, what you’re really saying is that you’re becoming more subtly sensitized and aware of how things permeate about in life. 

And then you’re trying to figure out how to effectuate something one way or another. But you can’t figure it out, and you’re not figuring it out, because you’re approaching it wrong. You’re kind of approaching it as if you can distinguish things separate and unique, separately, as if in a compartmentalized way.

We can consider the idea of being conscious, or of having greater awareness, as establishing new patterns of thought. For example, instead of just saying to ourselves: oh, that always makes me angry, we can ask further, why does that always upset me? Where or when did that start in my life? If we take nothing we do for granted, and instead question why we do things, and ask ourselves if we still want to do this or that thing, we can effect positive change in our lives by steering the energetic processes we go through to our best, and chosen, outcome.

Jeane: I only remember the one dream because it woke me up, and it was hard to hold on to because, again, it was working with energy. 

And, in the dream, there seems to be some sort of situation which is getting out of control. It involves somewhat younger people, and you’re somewhere in the background observing, as are others who seem more in charge. 

And then I suddenly step in and I start arranging things in a certain design. And I have, it’s almost like I’ve taken a situation, and I put it into a box, but they aren’t square because one  corner is round, one side is round. And some are, I think, three sides are straight lines and the other side is round. 

I’ve taken these configurations and I put them in a certain pattern. And the pattern reflects the colors of the Italian flag, like they’re white, and green, and yellow and red, with maybe some black lines, and then I’ve taken this and I’ve arranged it into a certain pattern. And when I get that pattern in place, the situation calms down. 

Before I do it, it’s almost like I had forgotten I could do it. But then, when I’m doing it, it’s like I remind you or somebody else that I’ve done this before. And then the situation calms down. That was the whole dream.

John: That’s a dream in which you’re seeing yourself functioning, again, like in the feminine mode of being a kind of a container energy that takes things into account. You’ve progressed that, instead of having to take it into account, most people don’t progress beyond just taking something into account, accommodating the environment or the circumstances that surround them. 

And finding themselves having to be, well, this is the way it is, kind of thing, which can lead to relationships and mannerisms in which something is better than nothing at all, so that the feminine has something to accommodate, to try to ground, to try to hone, to try to officiate, so to speak, over it in terms of her world. Not having to take on, necessarily, the role of having to make something out of the ordinary happen, which has to do with power.

The container quality energy of the feminine rotates back and forth. And it’s like that. What you did in your dream was you took all of this, and you started using it as building blocks, you started creating something more out of it, which is what the, so to speak, Naqshband really is. The Naqshband is a designer of things. 

So instead of you just staying as a container, which is in a type of subconsciousness, you know, having to accommodate things that are touched in the unconscious by forces of the way that the outer is, or the way that the masculine is, or however you want to say that, you’ve gotten to the point where you’re now taking a bit of stepping-out initiative, in terms of shaping something, designing something

That’s something that I hadn’t thought about in terms of where the control aspect of trying to hold things in a particular parameter, like the feminine who’s responsible for the care of the overall household unit, the family, the kids and so on, I hadn’t realized that the feminine can then, instead of just doing this particular role, accommodating this kind of responsibility, can then step out with it and shape and design it. 

Your dream has a sense of freedom in it, in which you are able to kind of step out and shape and design and, therefore, you are embracing a greater and greater spaciousness of yourself, as opposed to working within parameters. You’re doing something more than just accommodating it. 

You can soothe a situation that’s out of control by accommodating it to a certain degree so that it has a chance to catch up with itself, has a chance to find a stillness instead of its reactivity, which might be, say, for example, the masculine way. But it’s another thing to still the situation by being able to participate as a player in terms of rearranging things in a way that adds to a greater balance.
