contraste-colores_It is often pointed out that we live in a world of duality: up and down, hot and cold, high and low, male and female, and on and on. And mostly we get caught on one side or the other of this duality. Yet as we develop, and elevate our viewpoint, the duality begins to be less important that the connections between things. And if we keep elevating higher, we’ll eventually merge into a oneness. Until then, as this dream shows, being caught in the duality of things is a state of delirium. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So my dreams were rather chaotic last night. The first dream I had seemed like there was a civil war taking place of some kind, and it stretched all the way from Alaska to wherever I was. And sometimes you saw families torn apart, because maybe the man had a wife that was black and she had to go live somewhere distant. Other times people were able to be together.

I remember some of the fighting was going on in Alaska and I remember that your brother-in-law was in the dream, but mostly it just felt chaotic.

John: That seemed to be what was going on continuously in the dreaming last night, was that there was always a corollary. In other words, if something came through in one way, there would be yet another way, an opposite, a contrast.

And thus it was hard for the dreams to flow because there was always the contrast. The contrast is just the contrast, and I can’t help but think that that seems to be the case in terms of the way the consciousness evolves, or one of the threads in which consciousness evolves, in which if you push yourself to an extreme contrast, something takes place, an awareness, an understanding takes place, or occurs.

But then the question is, what about the opposite of that? So it’s kind of like expansive and contractive, expansive and contractive. And this has to do with being able to flush out the future, to be able to work with the principles of expansive and contractive to get to a point where you actually have a sense of what is meant to be – or otherwise you just sit in kind of a delirium, where one part of yourself that has the 180-degree contrast goes up and contends with another part – and there is no vibratory flow in that.

The emptiness somehow or another exists, but it’s like a level or something that takes one outside of the contrast.

Jeane: In the second dream, I’m driving down a city street. Traffic’s been difficult, like maybe even was going the wrong direction at one point, but the road has opened up. I seem to be with someone I was in a relationship with in the past in the car, and suddenly this man and woman that are together, he comes riding a horse down the hill, but this hill is like all shell and he shouldn’t even be out riding a horse on it.

Plus then he rides the horse right into the pavement and the horse skids, because the pavement is slick, and falls down. And it feels like he gets off the horse, and the horse gets up and runs away and just looks like a big dog when it runs away. And I’m kind of furious at him because he shouldn’t have ridden a horse down this shell or on the pavement. Like what was he doing riding a horse when he didn’t know what to do with it, or what was good for it?

So it’s almost like I go looking for him to tell him what he did wrong. He seems to own an auto body shop or something that’s down the way, so I finally find the place where he and the woman are and I go right into their home to tell him about the horse.

They’re having a group of people in the home, so I spend a little time there, and when I’m ready to leave I even pick up and bag up some popcorn that they had served, without even asking permission, although I show them what I’ve done. And then the woman takes me aside into another room because she suddenly realizes that I’m leaving and she’s wondering what I was doing in her home, so she wants to know what my phone number is. It’s like she wants to verify who I am. But I’m trying my darnedest to remember my phone number. It takes me forever. I have to look through my purse and find this and find that. I don’t have my phone on me. I finally come up with the number and she checks it out, and then she asks for something else that’s supposed to go along with it that proves it’s the right number, and I’d never heard of that before and then she just kind of laughs because that was just kind of a test. There isn’t any such number or nobody knows it if there is.

So then I’m pretty sure I’m leaving and going home, but I blank out, and I wake up and I’m in bed with the guy. And I’m shocked that I’ve obviously spent the night there with him. And she comes in and she’s all upset the relationship is going to end, but she’s willing to keep him on as a client. She does some kind of very strange and different therapy. That doesn’t make any sense to me anymore than a lot of the things in the dream have made sense, and all I want to do is get out of there. I think my father even showed up at the house at one point, and I just want to get out of there because I can’t even remember. I thought I’d left and then I wake up in bed.

While they’re fighting or whatever they’re doing, I go over to a window. I think I open up the window, I find a rope, I’m going to throw it across a little space to where a dock is where someone can fasten it, and I think I can crawl down the rope. But I can’t throw the rope all the way over without someone having to grab it out of the water. Somehow I get out of the house, and then I see my dad who had come to the party, but he’d come with a bunch of other relatives.

I walk over to the cars they’re taking home and he’s crowded in a car with my sister and a bunch of other people, and there’s both a black and a white car and they’re driving off. And I also remember right before I left the house I glanced over and I saw my friend, who’s died, and his chest is all open and I see that there’s all this white lard looking stuff around part of his heart, so maybe that’s why he died. But it’s a big expansive open area and there was different stuff in there including this white hard looking stuff.

And I know I finally leave. The whole dream was just, you know, upsetting to me.

John: Again, it’s one combobulation after another, that seems to be the situation in a setting that exists here. And even though there can be a kind of clarity or consciousness in this, it’s real easy to look at it and just see the flip sides, everything has a flip side.

In other words, you start off with the flip side of power, and that results in something crashing and then there’s the friend, the horse goes from power to friend. It’s as if there’s a huge amnesia that exists in between those flip sides. What is there that’s visible? What is there in that because the polarities, the one or the other, each image has its own kind of delirium – and it’s like a type of cracking up, is what it’s like. I’m sure there’s something good in terms of this cracking up, but if one doesn’t figure out what that is, or come up with a continuity to what that is, you just sit, you just stay in limbo. You’re kind of in a frozen space, because you do one thing you end up with something else. So there’s a linkage that’s missing. Well, the dreams were all like this. They were one contrast after another.

Jeane: All I could remember of the last thing in the morning, there may have been other dreams but again because I was trying to always pull something together, or come back to a dhikr, it felt like I finally came to something which were these round disks that were dark, and maybe had copper symbols on them, that were uniform that went around the circle or the disk. There was something about those images that was beginning to calm a little bit.

John: This sort of stuff defeats every kind of transitional flow. In other words, what all these other images and whatnot is that you’re having, the last thing you saw, though, has to do with how things get created, or how you manifest, how you build something.

Because copper comes after gold and silver, in terms of the sequence of things. It has a very significant symbolic meaning, just like gold represents the masculine, silver represents the feminine, copper is another representation in terms of a vibratoriness, iron is the dense construct of things, and all of these are alchemical symbolic images.

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. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

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.
