Basia

Whenever we reach for new heights, there is always something that will resist us. Perhaps it comes in the form of people who don’t believe, or in the form of rules that make the path harder, or in the form of financial stress. It may seem like it’s the way of the world – and it is. Energetically, a force moving in one direction will always attract a force that resists its movement. The harder we push, the harder the resistance will come. That’s why wise people speak of taking on our biggest challenges quietly, without fanfare or grand pronouncements. That way, we don’t attract the resistance until we have the strength in ourselves to overcome it.

Jeane: So I only remember my last dream, and there’s only parts of it that I pulled out. In this dream it feels like I’m accompanying a group of some other people. It feels like they’re younger people, and I’m accompanying them on horseback to this place way high in the mountains. A.nd these are mountains like the Himalayas.

And when we go there, it’s like the people can see you coming for a day or two, and it’s very rugged and remote. And there are ways of shifting in this process, both before you get there, and when you get there; they help you get there, and I can’t remember all those ways clearly. Some had to do with sound, some had to do with some symbols, I really can’t remember, and I can’t remember the third way, but I was aware of them in the dream.

Well, we get there. I kind of look around. It really is a really old, very remote place high in the mountains, and then it feels as though I’m made aware of the ways that people shift, or can know things there.

And then I’m suddenly back where we started, and someone is telling me that the people in the mountains have summoned for me to go there on my own, now, not to go with a whole caravan. And I know that they’ll see me coming for several days, particularly the man that wants to see me. And I’m thinking through the two or three choices you have on how you can shift, as you work with whatever it is that takes you there. And I’m going over those.

I don’t remember them enough to describe them clearly enough. I remember one had to do with sound, and one had to do with symbols, and I don’t remember what the third one was. And because they can see you coming for a couple days as you come, if they don’t want you to come they can block that. So I’m going over all these things in my mind as I get ready to go back on my own.

John: What you’re pointing out, what that dream is, it’s a dream in terms of the use of power, and the use of sight, and the use of clarity, the use of sound. The dream is portraying that you need to be able to hold a space, inside of yourself, so that the outer doesn’t see you coming. In other words, the power that you have inside is not something that can be just treated in a willy-nilly fashion, thrown out there, in terms of what you see and what you know, because everything in the outer causes a thought process, the mind and senses, to get engaged.

And so, if you make yourself obvious and apparent, to the mind sense outer, whereby it sees you coming, sees the nature of something that is a presence, or a power, and can see it coming – it can block it, which is an interesting time to bring the subject up. Where they can see what’s coming, and throwing everything out into the open, and when things are thrown out into the open then nothing can really unfold because they can see you coming.

In other words, when things are thrown out in the open in that fashion, because you have the power, which is the horse, but it’s out in the open, and from afar it can be seen coming. And not only is the horse out in the open, but the horse is scaling the unimaginable heights, the Himalayas.

So it’s a horse of power, going into the sacred land – but it is going into it in such a way so that it is obvious that that’s what it’s doing, and all can see what it is doing, and so a resistance can be established to stop it.

And so the scenario, you might say, is that in the seeing of what is unfolding… Actually, I was taking it in the negative. In the positive, it is this. In the positive, first of all, in your dream, the thing that is powerful, and the thing that is sacred, is yourself. You have the horse, and you are high in the Himalayas, or high in the sacred mountain, sacred of sacred mountains. And when you’re like that, with the power and high in the sacred mountains, whatever you come across you can expose. It can be seen.

It is known. As the little ruminations of things happen, it’s all seen as coming. It stands out in the open. In other words, your power, presence, and high in the mountains, the sacred mountains, that force of nature is such that it causes everything to be known.

And the negative side of it, in the application of life, is attempts are made to block it. But, can they block that? Because what is seen coming can be seen in both directions, just like they can see you as a force of nature that can come, and simultaneously you can see yourself, as well, and what it is that you have to go through.

7caforniaIn the game of Telephone, we know that when the message reaches us it will be terribly distorted, with, perhaps, the entire meaning changed. If we ask ourselves: what is the purpose of life?, we will find the same problem, because we humans have been getting the message wrong for thousands of years. So what do we do, and what can we trust? We can trust in the universe, and we can trust in our human design, two things that are still operating as they were meant to do and be. In the case of our design, we simply are not using it correctly, because all our sensitivities are part of our ability to connect to the universal – from which we can receive all the guidance we need. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, my attention is upon a substance that’s getting screened through and filtered in a noticeable way. What I noticed was that there was nothing to see and report, in terms of the filtering process. It seemed that something was there, but, if so, it was so fine that there was nothing to see.

In other words, we’re constantly filtering and filtering, and what we end up extracting is extracting a mannerism, or a pattern, or a way, and then we feel that and realize that that has its qualities in which it falls apart. But there’s nothing to filter to.

If I had seen something of consequence, in which there was a reportable visibility, I would’ve had a different determination and unfoldment as memorable – which would’ve been a wrong kind of memorableness.

The meaning is this is an image in that whatever I am refining or filtering gets to a nothingness of consequence, or visibility. In other words, it’s a purification image.

And then I still stay on this, in the next one, in which the image I see is that I pay 109-degree hot water bill, which is affecting a washing machine. In other words, I pay the bill and the bill is 109 degrees and that’s okay, and the 109 degrees affects the washing machine. In other words, it’s like a symbol of completion, where you accept the temperature that exists and just face that bill for whatever it is. In other words, it’s like a message, it’s like a strange kind of advertising, too, that this is how it is.

So now I’m starting to deviate in this one. So I go into an area where I see a stream of water that’s flowing. It’s not flowing in the way that it usually flows, and it’s kind of something I can easily swim in. It’s almost like a natural hot springs, the whole length of it.

But, in this hot springs, I know that there is a dragon, and this is a wonderful, friendly, helpful, magical dragon, but the water is so low I’m wondering how the dragon can survive in this. And so I’m swimming up this thing, and swimming up this thing, like I’m trying to get the source, and, eventually, I come to an area where there’s kind of some run down buildings that’s at the head of all of this, almost as if there are rooms that you can go into and whatnot, and it’s as if that is like a change area and everything else.

This whole time I’ve been alone as I’m doing this, and, when I look outside, in the far distance I guess would be the ocean. And then water is coming across the white sands, just a very small amount, and I can’t help but wonder if the sea level rises maybe it fills this channel more, or if it goes down, then what if there’s global warming or something. Whatever it is, it can impact this, and somehow or another as it comes across these white sands in a very, very thin layer of water coming across, I guess it heats up or something and goes into these hot springs.

So I go back into these hot spring rooms. I’m all by myself the whole time, and suddenly there’s a room and there’s a whole bunch of guys in it. And they try to invite me in, and as soon as I go in there I realize there’s something strange about them. I comment about the dragon, and if the dragon does he make it to the sea? And they assume that he must make it to the sea from time to time, and I figure he has to make it to the sea because this is pretty shallow the way it is now.

So I’ve got to get away from them; these guys look strange and weird. Who knows what is apt to happen. And so I act like I’m going out to find the main river. Well I came up what was the spur that I thought was the main river, and, as I go along I walk out this way and that way, and of course I am careful to try to make sure I get away from these characters, and I come down to an area and there’s a huge river there.

Wow, where’d that come from? And as I come down at the head of the river is all kinds of people in the water, and lo and behold, that’s a hot springs. The water is hot there and all these people are just enjoying themselves, and I can just go into that amidst all of those people and be just fine.

So the nature of this is that this dream starts off in which I’m in a solitary way and, little by little, that gets one out of balance. However, there is the magical dragon that does cover this whole area and, when I’m wayward and off, the hot springs that exist, or the flow that exists, is even a little polluted, and I could see it’s not conducive to the needs for this kind of magical creature to live.

And it’s not healthy to be by myself trying to follow something as an unfoldment to the source, as if I’m going to sort all of that out on my own, because such an approach can lead to where I can see the sea, or at least the white sands coming from the sea, and the water that flows across that from the ocean access, but it flows across and is looked at in this way in kind of a bifurcated aloneness way which gets into a type of life that is dysfunctional.

To leave that is to find the mighty river, which at its pure source is healthy, and where the true hot springs of life can be. Or, as I said in another way, when I leave this imbalance I find the hot springs again, but at the head of a mighty river, and a lot of ordinary people to be with.

So this is pointing out again that my tendency is to ponder and to look at things, and find all these different variables, which will be unlimited in their nature, as a type of looking in a Solomon kind of vanity way, when doing that is a bifurcation off of what is really meant to be, which is to just hold the central vibration of a letting go, that you can hold in the dhikr of the breath, or in the prayer quality of yourself, or in the meditation. Allow all of that to come together. They work together.

Spirit energy is different forms, and spirit energy can come back to you, and is carried from lifetime to lifetime. And so you have to be careful of just catching up with spirit energy, per se, because it can have its mannerism, just like how do you address the kundalini energy that’s throwing people around, in terms of them not being able to sleep, or dream, and stuff like that? That’s something that sorts itself off in a type of letting go that they have to reach inside of themselves, and they reach that inside of themselves by holding the quality of the note of the vibration. The best thing to do would be to do the dhikr.

Next dream: I am warned ahead of time about being held up by bandits who shake people down along a road. I seem to forget this, and I end up with an old pickup truck full of gold, and hidden amidst the gold is something even more precious than that cargo.

And so it’s almost as if, in this pickup truck, with me is a bunch of these surly guys that are just kind of, you know, in the state that I’m in it’s okay, but you wouldn’t want to meet them by a road. And they remind me that it might not be a good idea to go over this area, and I get this notion that, you know, yeah, they could actually call ahead and I could be waylaid, even.

Well, to go over this area, I seem to think I need a different vehicle and I go to get into the vehicle and it won’t start, which means I’ve moved away from the truck, that’s this old beat up pickup truck, that has the gold in the back and something precious there.

And so that’s the dichotomy in this dream is, in some way, I’m attempting to be adamant in my own way, and the meaning of the dream is just to stop, and the circumstances are my clue, and I need to hold tight to where I am, and there is no need to reach out. I have at this time what I need. I just need to know how to take it in, in its entirety of my being, as is.

9afaOur dreams are wonderful with metaphors. Here a crow – smart, mischievous, but also frivolous – threatens a rooster – stable, with a responsibility to his hens. And in this exchange we can see exactly the threat of the external world, the bread and circuses, that constantly seek to entertain us and pull us away from our true responsibility, which is to fulfill our purpose and design – on behalf of that which created us. It is a struggle that has always been waged; unfortunately, the crow is almost always victorious. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So then, in the last dream, I experience an overall vibratoriness that is being pulled into manifestation. I feel this vibratoriness being drawn from me into a more dense outer need. This image then shifts, and I am seeing this in nature.

To begin with I see a more dexterous crow able to move about in an unrestricted way, in terms of hopping about this way and that way, that looks kind of free in terms of its taking of things in the outer.

The crow flies into an area where there are chickens. The hens accommodate or don’t oppose or do anything to affect the way the crow just goes and takes what the crow takes, but the rooster carries an energetic overall vibratoriness as a responsibility, in terms of the well-being of the hens, and that conflicts with the crow just hopping about taking what it wants to take.

And so you and I are standing behind a window, and we’re watching this crow who has pounced, or extended a wing, because he’s got more dexterity; he can fly. He’s come down and he’s thrown a wing over the top of the back of rooster, and is in a position to strike the rooster in the back of the neck. He hasn’t done it yet, and at the moment there is still a type of stillness. And I’m kind of frozen there: do I go and I rescue the rooster, or what? So instead, I’m like sitting in a trance: is he going to hurt the rooster? So far that hasn’t yet happened, but, if it does, the rooster will bleed.

So what is going on is this is an image in which a dense reflectiveness drains the aliveness of life. In other words, when you just identify with that, or when you just hold that, like the crow is the denseness in life that goes about just grabbing this and taking that.

And the rooster is the development of something in which it’s trying to hold a vibratoriness in a particular way, but maybe he doesn’t quite have the dexterity of the multiplicity of things. The crow has more mobility. A rooster can’t fly, and so the crow is able to get an advantage on the rooster.

And this is what happens when the outer, which is the crow and all of its bouncing around ways of taking things, is given a precedence over the inner vibratory essence. A draining process occurs when this happens, and this hurts the Will of God, which is now equated to being: it hurts the heart. Because you could see something very despairing in this poor rooster who has to do something and he can’t, and he’s helpless. He can’t stand up to the crow, and the crow’s up to no good all the time.

So, to begin with, it seems harmless, but the loss of spirit is a leeching and taking, and what that does, of course, is that takes you and separates you away from the inner essence of what is important – and rapes the spiritual world of its underlying essence. It’s a vibratory essence and the rooster embodied that as best he could, and now it’s for naught.

In that image, if the crow were to strike, the crow could kill the rooster, and the rooster has his head kind of down a bit. There’s not much he can really do. And that’s not how it’s supposed to work. It’s not supposed to work in terms of the outer taking advantage of the inner, of the vibratoriness.

The vibratoriness accommodates the denser, just like the rooster can accommodate what is needed for the hen. The hens can be kind of denser. The rooster has to maintain the vibratory energy of the protective space and whatnot, and the hens can just kind of be in life in a denser way even, if you wanted to call it a denser way, but the combination of that pulls something together.

But the seed thought of this thing is that the shadow… you don’t let the shadow run around behind you, and then you lunge out because then the shadow kind of drains you from behind by the fact that you’re ignoring it. You instead follow the shadow, and that’s how you become more conscious in terms of taking on what you need to assimilate.

See, the outer to inner approach is the wrong direction. In such an approach the Will of the inner is not honoring the Will of God. In such an approach, what is going on in the outer, or what is going on in the environment, is something that has its own freedom of choice or something. In other words, it’s not honoring the Will of something that’s the true essence that vibrates through everything, which is the Will of God.

The Will of Man thinks he can get away with this or that as a kind of freedom of choice prerogative. It is when the Will of God awakens from within that the orientation changes. When the Will of God is capable of coming into the Will of Man a natural communion occurs.

Similarly speaking, the shadow does not follow our perception of the higher self. The awakening occurs oppositely. The awakening occurs when the higher self follows the shadow to complete itself. The image of the crow submitting the rooster is a seed thought image. This is an unnatural effect portraying a wrong result or approach.

The spirit energy of the rooster who is adhering to an energetic vibratoriness in life that flows through him, as best as he’s able to catch up with it, is getting plundered, or there is a plundering of the heart energy, or inner aliveness, causing him to have to submit.

In other words, the crow is plundering the heart of the world, so to speak, by its activities of taking, which is errant behavior, which a crow is at home with in the outer world, and therefore predominates his mannerism that way. And such mannerism, when it predominates that way, results in a further veiling of genuine vibratory aliveness.
