Being held captive, a rescue on horseback, and an escape – these are the elements that we find in fairy tales and action movies. Yet when the images come from a dream, and we understand that all the elements are a part of the dreamer’s inner life, we can gain an insight into what is being wrestled with. To free oneself of something a person needs to summon an inner power greater that what holds the person back. Yet letting go is never easy, so the image shows the characters trying to grab supplies as they break free – but, of course, it can’t work that way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In this dream, I’m like a little girl but I’ve been bound and kept captive somewhere. My hands are kind of loosely in some kind of a soft handcuff and I’m kept somewhere. And I’m kept in this building that’s almost like a school; there’s other kids there.

Well, I’m trying to figure out how to get free, and I do get out of the room one day, and then there’s a horse outside and the horse turns into my uncle, so I get away with my uncle.

And then there’s me as the little girl, there seems to be me as an older version, and my uncle, and we are all trying to get out of town and escape. But we have to figure out how to get some supplies.

Now, I start looking around for supplies. My uncle, sometimes he’s like a man, my uncle, and sometimes he’s the horse again, and then there’s the little girl me also. Now when we go looking for supplies, she goes back to the school and she gets seen. And I don’t know why she went there looking for something – the school where she’d been kind of imprisoned. Some people see her, so I have to kind of get her out of there again.

And then we’re going through the town very fast. We can’t go back to the house, a house where we’re known. We’re trying to find some supplies. We go into a building, and it’s a building where there’s weavers and things. We think we may actually take some things from there, just like, you know, to stay warm or whatever. But I realize that whatever we take, they may put a tracker in it.

So I have a thought that we’ll take this tracker and we’ll give it to the kid on the street, we’ll find out where they’ve hid the tracker in whatever we take, and we’ll give it to a kid on the street. And that might solve the problem, except they might have a hidden tracker as well that I’d have to find. I think that’s the point in the dream when the glass fell over and so I woke up.

John: So the energetic of feeling like bound, or tied up, is the contractive condition of where one is still caught in some sort of allure or identification. So a power is needed, an inner power, that breaks through the trance that exists when one is enraptured with the condition of seeking to maintain a certain mannerism. 

And so the inner power comes, because it recognizes it can let go of that condition that keeps one bound. And so then you’re swept away.

So when you gain the inner power, you also access certain traits and qualities that you’re able to function with, that kind of come with the inner power. However the little girl experiences the power just as an energetic, in and of itself, and doesn’t need any of the accoutrements that help facilitate a sense of balance in terms of you and your way of relating to the outer. In other words, that can all fall away.

Well the reason why there’s the sense of people trying to capture you again is because one didn’t totally let go. The little girl suggests something that could have let go by wandering on off, but the concept is that doing so endangers her because she could be hurt.

That’s a type of worrying, and a type of imposed stress, as a way of being in place of the total letting go. In other words, there’s always the tendency, the human nature always has the tendency of having to utilize something, instead of being able to shift in such a way so that there’s nothing that has to be leaned on. And you can shift in such a way so you don’t ever even lean on the back of a wall, or another place, or tool or whatever. That would involve not sitting in a way that gives one some sort of sense of driftiness. These are all examples of holding on to something, when in reality you really don’t need to hold onto anything. It’s a deep dream.

So the glass broke and shattered the whole flow of the dream, but you pulled and held onto the dream even with the glass having shattered because the dream carried a resonance that pointed to something as a letting go towards an emptiness.

consciousness1216We’re all familiar with the concept of the unconscious, semi-conscious, and the conscious levels of our inner selves. But how does that show itself in our lives? On a spiritual journey, our systems get information first on an unconscious level, then it can move to the semi-conscious and, if we listen and can pick up on it, that information can become conscious in us. That’s part of what it means to bring things from the inner into the outer. If we don’t bring it into consciousness, it is lost to us.

Jeane: Well, the only dream I remember, I was on the grounds of where they run the Kentucky Derby. First I’m in one of the business offices meeting with a man who’s involved in the handicapping, and he also has a horse who’s running in the Derby.

And then when I go from his office, I’m actually sometimes driving and sometimes my car turns into my horse, but sometimes it’s a car. I’m kind of driving around the area to find a place to park, and it has to be a little ways out. It’s in a circle, but it’s a ways out because my horse is also going to be running, but not in the Derby because it’s running in one of the other races. I have to park it a little ways further out and again, like I said, sometimes I’m driving my car and sometimes it turns into my horse that’s going to be running in the race.

And as I get closer to where I park, and I’m trying to find the right place to park, I’m studying the whole idea of how the horses are handicapped for how much weight they’ll carry and such and, and how they run in the race, and everything seems to be represented by these lines that go back towards the wall where I’m studying where to park, and sometimes they link from where I’m going back to the office of the man who’s in charge.

And I’m just trying to find the right place where I’m supposed to park before I go about what I’m supposed to do next, as I kind of study the energy lines, too, that go back and forth, that represent how all of that works there.

John: The oddity of your dream is that, it’s as if when you go to a depth inside, because you’re naturally in manifestation, you go to kind of a place where there’s just the energetic. In other words, it’s kind of like you’re playing with the displacement of energy.

In other words, in the outer, the energetic that is at hand takes and unfolds in a particular way. And on the inner, there’s just the energetic that is in existence, that is in place, and it can be displaced at a deep enough level in the inner, it’s displaced from an outer consequence, or unfoldment.

So I guess this is your way of seeing how it is, that the way that you somehow see yourself, or perceive yourself, or understand vibrations of yourself, that what it is that you’re about can be looked at in an inner way as just vibrations and energy lines. You might say, without the outer, they can kind of even sit latent – or do they sit latent?

Is the outer just the illusionary reflection for those vibrations to unfold, and that otherwise they are there but sit in maybe some sort of imaginal or something, that can’t run its course? Well, it just shows that there has to be many, many levels to things that, at the highest self of one’s self, you can be in just the overall energetic in a larger wholeness capacity – that’s the macrocosm. At the microcosm of yourself ,it unfolds as an aspect of manifestation.

Interesting how you did this displacement. The dream is told it had the displacement in it. In other words, you’re on the grounds of the Kentucky Derby, and you were actually, in a roundabout way, by being on the grounds there was something intended to happen, but it wasn’t readily apparent. What was readily apparent was whatever you were doing with regards to the owner of the stable, or the grounds, had something to do with the horse, but that horse not necessarily being you, or your horse. But then, ultimately, being your horse and car and the whole works as well.

And then even that gets displaced again by the fact that then there’s all these energy lines that portray what is an intentionality that’s meant to be. If you were to break it down, you could chop things into layers, or levels, a level in which you’re the overall equation, a level in which there is a latent energy that is out of touch, so to speak, but you’re in the vicinity of it, the level in which whatever that energy is, is you, an energy in which it unfolds as both being a horse or as a car, in other words a vehicle that drives or something that takes on motion, a quality level in which you can go back to a stillness and just portray the energy lines of what can be.

That would be like taking and going back inside of one’s self with something that is already, potentiality-wise, on a number of these other levels unfolded, but now back to the energy lines as if you’re still holding onto it in some capacity. It’s like what you’re doing can seem very odd without recognizing what the theme of the dreaming was, and the theme had to do with shaking things through into a conscious clarity from some depth deep within.

What you did is you found yourself kind of like, plop, in all of it, so that you had a bit of a piece of yourself like this, and a bit of a piece of yourself like that, and a bit of a piece of yourself like that, of which it all could be aligned into an unfoldment. It’s kind of like snapshots that can pull together and appear to be a motion picture – and yet each snapshot can appear to be something that is separate in a process, as opposed to an aspect that is intertwined and flowing from beginning to end.

In other words, the levels can seem disjointed, and an unfoldment, or awakening process, can, from the perspective of a person caught in the outer, working with the five senses and their idea of wanting to see something happen, conceptually that is, there can appear to be large veils that sit in between the knowingness.

And yet the theme of the dreaming is showing that it all shakes through in its own way, over time it shakes through. But at any given moment in time, when you are caught up in something, it can appear to be awkward.

aloudTaming a wild horse evokes the perfect image of how we harness a natural power in ourselves. At first we won’t have the skills and abilities needed. Yet with continued effort in the right way, slowly we will gain control over the wildness. And it works both ways: we gain the skills of how to act and be, and the energy (horse) moves toward us as our repetitions show our devotion. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So in this first dream my brother, who is about four years old, or six years old or something, races straight out, and there’s a horse that’s standing looking straight out, and he runs up to the back of the horse, and he just jumps up, from the back, from the ground. It’s almost like he catapults himself right onto the back of the horse, so he’s positioned on the horse to ride the horse.

I’m stunned by what I see. This is like a wild horse, but it’s a horse that hangs out, or that is part of the environment. In other words, he’s in the backyard, and he’s standing next to a barn that’s there. If I hadn’t seen this whole thing happen with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it to be possible. I mean that was pretty big, a person 4 years old and running up, and then jumping up, and kind of catapulting themselves right off the ground, right onto the horse, and just suddenly then, boom, as if, you know, in riding position.

And so the horse… when this happens the horse is appalled, and it immediately bucks the boy who, you know, is too young to have a good handle at staying on the horse. He bucks the boy off, so the boy goes falling off almost in the direction where he’d come up and, as he’s going off the horse then kicks with his hind feet and propels him. He goes flying and smashes into the ground, and he extends out and he smashes into an object.

But instead of my brother just taking this in as kind of a realization or recognition, in other words realizing that this idea that he had of just jumping on the back of the horse – it wasn’t a good idea. He gets up, and the next thing you know he’s back on the horse again. Well this time the horse is really mad. The horse this time is not going to put with this anymore, so he’s going to rub against the barn, and this time he’s going to injure him so that he doesn’t do this kind of goofiness anymore.

The horse knocked him to the limits of his senses, but didn’t actually hurt him. And I’m sitting there and, even though this whole thing is bizarre to me, and I would not have guessed that it could even happen like this, that my brother would do something like that, my little brother, doing it in some sort of blind stupidity without any common sense. Nevertheless, seeing that the horse has developed a mannerism that could injure him, I step in to protect this from happening.

Very deep dream actually. The simple part of this is, as if I am invincible, invincible meaning like in a quality or characteristic that’s pure or, because it’s in the physical, not yet mature, conscious, or old enough to know that you do not go up against raw power over and over.

You can’t keep that up, especially if you’re not conscious what you’re doing, and know what you’re doing, because from the eyes of an innocent observer, which is a part of the whole that is impervious to my plight and how foolish things are… in other words, there’s a knowing better, there’s a knowing how it all comes together as one.

But when you’re in this amnesia, and you’re seeing this stuff, and you see it in the outer, you don’t see what it really means on the inner. In other words, you don’t see that this is how power is, how there’s a power that penetrates over everything, and instead you’re seeing it in some sort of literal, reflective sense. You know, even the inner has its reflective way. When it’s like that, you’re just kind of stunned and, to begin with, you just stand there frozen. But as you come out of the stupor, you come to recognize that you need to close a gap, bring something back into a union, which is a form of rescuing yourself, i.e., through your brother, doing unto others, to keep him from being hurt. And as long as you see things as separate there is always this condition of something getting hurt.

The deeper meaning of this image is that there is an inner power I feel in my beingness, that wells up inside of me, and in that there is an all-encompassing characteristic and quality that all comes together. And thus it’s like an invincibility because there really isn’t anything going on. It’s when you create the separation, or the bifurcation, that you get all of this other acting up that does it in kind of a defensive reactive mode – when instead it’s meant to just come together as a wholeness, as something that is created in perfect harmony, that doesn’t know that, is still misaligned.

Well, it’s like that on a vibrational level that is, but in the outer world, the collective is committed to keeping me subdued and unconscious. I take a stand on the side of the bold and beautiful, in other words, the innocent, the quality of that 4-year-old, to overcome the power of the collective outer system and flow.

And, of course, we understand this outer system is held in place in its illusory way because of the gravity of things that kind of create this whole appearance that there’s things going on. And now we’re at a point, you’re at a point, your dream is really, really pretty poignant in everything you’re doing you’re doing unto yourself. You’re creating your own spells on yourself. My, oh my that’s a hard one to accept.
