_ag_DreamingOur dreams can be so full of drama that it sometimes seems as if we could wake up and write a screenplay from them. Why are they so dramatic and over-the-top? Well, on a certain level they are showing the struggle for you, the struggle for your life, that goes on between you and the world around you, and you and your true purpose. And that is just about the most dramatic and important thing we can think of. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in this next dream, I seem to have this boyfriend and we’re walking along a mountain trail, and he has a little black dog that’s really bright; a little fluffy black dog. And we run into another man who has a dog that looks exactly like that.

And maybe because this other man is interested in me, and he has a dog exactly like my boyfriend’s dog, they feel like they have to go fight a duel. They’re going to go down to the forest below to fight a duel, and they leave me holding both of the dogs.

And I think this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of, so I take off with the dogs. I’m not going to have anything to do with them fighting a duel. And I think the dogs are actually implanted with a little artificial intelligence, and when I take off we get into an area where we’re settling and trying to climb.

I end up going through a canal, and I have to try to climb up onto a ledge and go over, and I see some people coming from the left that are trying to escape from something and go the same way we’re going. And they’re being pursued, and when the dogs and I manage to kind of get up over what seemed like a barrier and proceed, and then I eventually go into a building, I find that there’s actually some men there that are developing an artificial intelligence. And it’s like they want to keep it for themselves.

And they realize my dogs have been implanted with it, so it’s like they want to kill me, or capture the dogs, and know where that came from because they thought they were the only ones that had it. So I’m trying to stay ahead of them, or keep the dogs out of their grasp, or not get us shot, maybe even try to get back to the guys if one of them hasn’t hurt the other.

But there’s a lot of overpowering force in this, they’re almost like either criminal or government types that have a lot of power behind them that are trying to implant and control this artificial intelligence.

John: So, what you’re describing is you’re describing an unconscious condition that exists, in terms of life, in which people go out and get caught up in things and, in their deviation, in their separation, they go off into trances that are away from the essence of their own true being – thus they’re away from the oneness that pervades through all of life.

And yet that doesn’t mean that life itself is devoid of that oneness. It just means that they have lost the sight of that, and that this oneness extends into everything, and it includes the animals for example, the dogs that they have, which are their friends, of which there’s a closeness that the dogs have, and that the dogs reflect. And it’s not just the dogs, it’s everything.

And so, similar to the previous dreams, you’re being challenged to take and contend with something that’s at a deeper depth inside of yourself, and bring that deeper depth out. And in the face of the collective, or the ordinary, out there, that isn’t recognized – yet it is in the overall atmosphere, but who can see it, and who can know it? And thus it sits kind of in an amnesic denial.

And you are recognizing that there is this quality in life, even though there is this other dance that is all very, very strange and peculiar, that underneath everything that is going, on including these guys that are off into this strange dance, that have done things to help train the dogs and stuff like that, too, that carry an embeddedness that goes far beyond the delusionality that they’ve gone off into in their trance, is this whole quality, that is so close, and yet so far that they don’t get it.

And that’s not much different than your campfire thing, in which you access something and then comes the delusional to kind of haunt that, and then that sends you off into having to sort or figure all that out because the collective influence has such an overriding effect in its illusion upon you, that there you are going down a road that’s bounded by lines that are yellow and probably orange. And the reason why the line has probable orange in it because yellow only represents one part of the breath. Orange represents the other part of the breath.

There is a way of looking at life in which, wherever you see the word God you substitute breath and you’re not that far off. And then, of course, this whole thing has its repeat cycle that’s very similar, which is your great niece, and the fact that she is considered a deeper essence because she’s a great niece than something that’s louder, which is the vibration of your sister. And so that aspect that is more to the outer, the sister energy can smother out the meaningfulness of the deeper depth of the great niece vibration.

What you’ve done there is you’ve kind of done a bit of a role reversal, in that you’ve gone down the tree of life as opposed to within the tree of life. The typical way of looking at it would be in the order of looking at your grandparents, and your great grandparents, and all of that as kind of a deeper inner lineage. And in this particular case you’re working with the other aspect or part of the breath that penetrates into an insightfulness that is in the outer, in a deeper way, and the reason why you’re doing this on a psychological level inside of yourself, is the underlying theme is one of oneness that is pervasive in everything.

It’s easier, for example, to recognize a closeness to a relationship level that is really close to you, like say your sister which would be closer than your niece. And yet you’re meant to be able to start taking this from your sister, to your niece, to the strangers, to the objects. I mean the oneness keeps going out. And initially you’re closer to it, in terms of the bloodlines, and usually because of the way human beings have been so caught in the collective of things with the senses, and then the mind orientation going off of the sense orientation, thus there being a kind of heretical ego that we have to contend with, the closest means in which to sort that sort of thing out has been for humanity, for the longest time, through bloodlines. That there’s been a certain level of awareness that’s been able to come across through bloodlines, as we are able to hold a better closeness that way than we can amongst strangers.

But eventually it has to get, as it says in The Bible, to the point where you love thy neighbor as thyself, where it has to extend as a oneness that goes into everything, and all things.

stuOne of the fundamental ideas about dream images is that we are all the characters in our dreams: male and female, young and old – even the animals are an aspect of us. They are symbolic representations of energetic threads within, and our unconscious splits them out, and clothes them representatively, so we can witness their interaction – shown to us by flow, or resistance to flow, by a smooth journey, or a huge ordeal. Sometimes issues are resolved (we find a flow), and sometimes our inner resistance makes the situation worse (something or someone needs to chase us). Then they are all returned to our unconscious, in whatever state they get to, and await the next opportunity to communicate with us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, the early part of the night it just felt like I dreamt about my nephew and other people that were sorting out things at my dad’s house. And so I don’t remember much about that. I had trouble sleeping.

And then I had a dream where it feels like I’m going between one house and another, and I have a dog with me, a little Dachshund. When I walk the dog and I take the dog back to the first house, it’s like I want to let it go, but then I realize there’s this old man that’s kind of crawled into the space where the dog would be in the house where I would’ve let it go, so I can’t let the dog go.

And so then I’m kind of taking the dog around the yard and into another room, and meanwhile it seems to have gotten itself halfway stuck in a big paper cup of some kind. So I think the dog is just playing with that, but then I realize, you know, I can’t quite seem to get it to go run or play where it wants to, so then I pull the cup off it and I realize that there was still tea in the cup, and the dog had tea all over them, that they had actually been stuck. I thought they were just playing.

And so now I have to go like dry the dog off so I can let it go play. The old man was up at the house, you know. There was a lady there, too, but, you know, it’s like I had gone down to another area with the dog because I was trying to get the dog exercise and let it run.

John: You’re dangling on the outside of how the intertwining works.

First of all you started off with your nephew, at your dad’s house. And you’re just watching that. Now, that watching that is from afar. What if you were to take the afar, and take out the transcending of time and space, and put in its place a you that is also outside of time?

Because actually, in the dream, you are outside of time, but your perception is still limited. You’re still keeping the veil in place of time. If you revealed the veil of time, then you would be your nephew, and you would be your dad, and there would be no watching. There would just be something unfolding as a continuous, never-dying aliveness.

And then this gap, or like level, of time comes up again in the other dream in which you have this older man, okay. So it doesn’t matter whether there’s a relationship or not, other than the fact that this older man is a part of yourself – but you’re caught up in the friend, the dog, and the dog is stuck in an illusion, a paper cup, and the attentions of all of that never comes together.

The old man is somewhere else, and you, in a particular mannerism of the way you are carrying yourself, have to contend with an energetic vibration that has to sort something out. You know, there’s the tea, there’s the cup, there’s all of that sort of stuff reflective of a way of being, a way that you are being. But the old man was nowhere in the equation; he’s somewhere else.

What’s wrong with that picture is that it doesn’t have to be that way. The old man, you, the tea, the cup, the dog, all are vibrationally intertwined, so vibrationally intertwined that there isn’t any separate distinction to be denoted.

rubik-fig9In this dream imagery we have a wonderful example of how the unconscious uses things we know from everyday life to tell us a story. And in this story we have an effort to make coffee – to release something from its confined state. And we have cats and dogs with their different natures, and we have water and milk with their different natures. And each of these elements holds a certain energetic essence that we can understand and relate to, which is how all dream images are used in the effort of our higher systems to speak to us in ways that we already understand. In fact, each person dreams in their own vocabulary of references and meanings. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had a dream in which I seem to be working in a somewhat confined, felt almost like underground, space, or at least a confined space with other people. It felt like there was an overseer somewhere.

It’s like we were assembling all the ingredients for something. It might have been something as simple as coffee, but we only had the dry ingredients. And there would be times when we would try to introduce a wet ingredient, but milk didn’t work. And if cats came around the whole process didn’t work at all.

But if dogs came around, it didn’t seem to make a difference. But mainly there were two things I was doing, one was I was trying to find a way we could assemble and introduce at some point a wet ingredient, and that was just not getting it right yet, although if you had a wet ingredient water was going to work better than milk at this point in time.

And the other thing that seemed to be going on is, on another level, I seemed to be searching for someone that I used to know. It was a woman that had actually been in a relationship with another woman I knew, and I could find the one woman, but I couldn’t locate what had happened to her friend.

So I was just struggling to try to get the whole process to work at all, once you introduced the final ingredients, or something, or how you could do that. And so it was like the two themes kind of got intertwined. But that was about all I could remember from it.

John: Well, what’s striking here is, cats didn’t work in the scenario because cats are precocious, and dogs are considered the friend. In other words, the dog takes and relates to what you want or need as your friend. It supports you. But cats are precocious; you have to win them over.

And water works better than milk. Water again is more general. Milk is more specific. Water is colorless. Has a more translucent, colorless quality to it. Milk has a distinction in which there’s an effect. Milk is often associated with a type of purity effect, but it’s a designed purity effect. Water doesn’t have any of that to it. It leaves everything as is. It’s more of an invisible overallness.

So you kind of have to figure out how those two uses of energy apply. A cat that is precocious is more raw energy than a dog that subordinates, and is your friend, and goes along with however it is that it’s trained to be. A cat, you can’t abuse a cat or it’ll go wild, more raw energy.

And milk, in relationship to water, milk I suppose can be a belief, or spiritual quality, when water leaves everything in its overallness. It doesn’t try to distinguish or anything. So water works better than milk, and dogs work better than cats.

And so this is all done in relationship to trying to jumpstart yourself, in other words, to try to heighten something, to speed something up. And so you’re not yet able to figure out how to make it fluid, so you’re settling with just trying to get the components together for something that can then take a step forward or be speeded up.

And, energetically, you’re looking at a conduciveness, so the conduciveness you’re looking at you’re not able to get it to flow. It’s almost like you know part of it, but you’re still sorting out the other part. In other words, in my opinion, I think you’re right that water works better than milk because water is neutral, and something that’s neutral doesn’t go off and perhaps go into any kind of tangential way, even if that tangential way leads to a greater purity or something, it leaves everything alone. It’s neutral.

And when it comes to speeding something up, you have to have a neutral approach or otherwise you’re going to disturb. You have to be very neutral in your nature or you’ll disturb, you’ll impose. But when it comes to cats and dogs, yes, you can be friendly, but you can also be precocious. If you’re friendly you can make yourself more acceptable and you can get closer to the situation, but do you limit yourself in some way by doing that?

And yet a cat can’t get necessarily closer to the situation unless it’s on its own terms. It is a raw energy that has to be pacified. That’s a tougher call because, in the short run, the friendly energy works better. It leads to more openness and helps facilitate the free flow. However, the cat energy is an interesting energy in that it is actually more contractive because it is pushing off, and yet when it is able to let go it has a more soothing, rather than obedient, effect upon things. It can have a more soothing effect. It purrs and everything. It gets into a nice lilt.

A dog always stays at a point of attention in a subservient way. A cat, when it’s in its raw energy state, is more precocious, and then when it chooses to intertwine it can let go and go into this interesting purring state that’s very, very soothing. So in the long run if you can work with the raw energy, the cat energy, you can accomplish more.

And so what you’re trying to do is you’re working with this in terms of the schematic of speeding something up – in order to see. So you’re using the comparison between a cat and a dog and water and milk. Now water’s more important to the overall, for coffee, and for releasing what’s necessary to be released, for purposes of something working as an aspect that speeds things up. And if you’re just doing this in a literal way, you can do it faster with dog energy, with friendly energy. But if you’re trying to do this to a greater depth, and you’re trying to have a greater depth with it you would need more of the cat energy, the raw energy that gets to a purring which reaches the soothing quality state.

So in the long run it’s better if this opens up before it seals, or becomes effectuated, in your nature. It’s better if you can open up to the cat energy in the process, along with the water. In the short run, for expediency purposes, the other works and the cat energy and the water can appear to oppose each other, initially. In the long run however this leads to something that’s a better end result.

Well, you’re not there with that better end result, and there is something about the friendliness of the dog that must bother you in some capacity because you’re not doing it. You’re still trying to figure out the best way of doing it. A cat energy is going to enjoy a dark area better than a dog energy. Yes, you would need the dog energy to try to get close enough, to create a friendly enough atmosphere, to figure out what the components needed to be to be put together.

But in terms of the actual release of the energy, of the qualities of something that speeded something up and can facilitate a greater seeing, the cat energy would then come into play. You would have to use both. So that means in terms of the water you’d have to actually use both, too, because the milk’s going to be important in the end, like a cream, to finish the coffee.

So you’re going to need water to begin with, you’re going to need dog energy to begin with, but then for the depth you’re going to need the cat and the milk. And in terms of the expediency of something, if you try to do it with just dog and water you can only go to a certain depth, to a certain point. To go to a greater depth you need to utilize the milk and the cat.

Some part of you knows that, or you wouldn’t have created that contrast to try to unfold. You created that contrast in order to better understand an intertwining – because everything is correlated, and when you live in a dense outer world you tend to look at this looking like that, and that looking like that, and you don’t necessarily see the correlations. And therefore you keep things distinct, and then as part of a process of an energetic release that is all pervasive in things, it has to be an energetic that’s composed out of everything in the environment. It can’t be an energetic that goes back and forth.

And, of course, there are qualities of things like the milk that gets ingested and turned into a product, a byproduct of all of that, which has healing capacities, nurturing capacities. In other words, you have to work with all of the components, some that are just generic like water, and then others that are refined like milk.

And a human being needs to find acceptance in order to function, which is a dog energy, but comes to realize that there is something so much more that can be found in a more soothing way, even though it may not look like it, when you work with the precociousness of a raw energy like a cat. So you’re sorting out animal energy, which is an interesting feature of the feminine nature.
