Time to Think

It is said that “he who hesitates is lost.” One way to understand this statement is to realize that when we have to work out a solution to something it means we are lost, in a way, because we don’t know how to proceed – so we hesitate – and, at a minimum, the moment has moved on and perhaps something has been missed. On our journey of always deepening our connections, we will begin to get more and more instantaneous knowings on how to proceed. Then it is a matter of trusting this guidance from within.

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m taking a test and I take this test after being subjected to things that lack insightfulness. So I’m taking a test to measure my receptivity and awareness to things that lack insightfulness.

In other words, how far am I going? In other words, that lack the insightfulness from within; I’m trying to get a gauge on that. So I am being shown that, first of all, I’m able to be in both the inner and the outer. With that in mind, what is meant to happen, and my role therein, has something to do with the inner connection. 

I have the Kundalini energy to make the connection to bring the flow through, but can I maintain the insight? That’s the question.

So the meaning is, I do not have time to work everything out in the outer. I must access a knowingness from within to keep up. In the dream, I’m being shown that I am between two-thirds and three-quarters of the way to this overall connection. 

So what is going on that shows me this is, from time to time I’m tested to see where I’m at. Each time I reach a point where I remain stuck – in other words, where I have to guess at the answers instead of them being automatic. It is the point where I lose the knowingness needed to go beyond the dense outer limitations. 

I have like a 12-question type exam to take after having gone through a process. And I get through somewhere between eight to nine of them and then time runs out. The test is over. And this is a repeat dream. I never have enough time to take these tests; time runs out. 

And so, knowing that the time runs out, the others I’m able to get through, but now all of a sudden I have to ponder these. And, in pondering these, I may have had to ponder one or two prior to that that chewed up all the time, then. And so then to have to think and ponder these to figure out what the best multiple choice answer is, instead of it coming to me readily, I eat up all the time. And I have to get to the point where I have to somehow take quick guesses, which means I don’t have the knowingness that’s there automatically.

And I’m about two-thirds to three-quarters of the way in what is like a 12-question process. It’s a repeat dream, which reviews how far I’ve come to catching up with what is going on with this quality of an inner knowingness. 

Just like you’re recognizing that you have to catch up with the sense of an energetic Kundalini instead of all of this outward Kundalini that involves what everybody else does, that has a defined setness to it that everybody embraces as being the way that it is. And it’s not; it’s meant to be so much more.

The Checklist

We all have set patterns and ways of doing things, but we don’t always understand that those repetitions can help us generate into a specific alignment and intention. But it is always the idea and the intention that comes first, so as one becomes a skilled practitioner of life, the need for the repetition diminishes and the intention can create the desired effect. This is what development enables. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I just remember one dream, and, in that dream I seem to be trying to figure out how to get one acupuncture treatment. And I feel like there’s even a way to do it energetically. 

But I feel like when I go to consult with the person that I would want to get the treatment from, that I know that my problem is that everybody’s used to doing acupuncture treatments in series of tens. And they’re all used to doing it with needles. And I just can’t figure out how to convince someone that actually one treatment is going to work. And then maybe you can even do this treatment without needles. 

And there is at least one person I talked to, but I realize that people just don’t get that if you try to do something differently than how they’re used to doing, they don’t think it can be done. And I can’t quite figure out how to get it done. I’m talking to somebody about how it can be done energetically, but I realize that I can’t seem to break through people’s concepts of how something is done, or has to be done. And so I just get frustrated with that; how am I going to do that?

John: So the key to understanding this dream is to understand what the theme was meant to be last night. And the theme that existed last night had to do with being able to be in life, in all of its different multiplicity ways, without having to be set in any particular way. 

You looked at it in terms of how to let go of things, as a type of letting go in terms of a presence. And you’re finding that, in life, everyone has a tendency to have adopted a particular pattern that they maintain over and over again. And, because of this pattern, they fail to see what is obvious in front of them.

They’ve gotten into this pattern, and so this pattern becomes the dictum to how something is, and you have a sense that there’s something more, much more, behind it all. And that this is something that is not in any kind of specific defined way, that you don’t have to go through some sort of set, over and over, defined protocol – that you can just let go and experience it energetically. 

In other words, it’s as if everyone else feels that there is some sort of defined outer way that something is done in order to create an invisible effect. And you are of the recognition and view that it’s not the act itself that does it, it’s the energetic behind the act, behind it all, that does it. And if you hit that energetic, that’s all that’s needed. 

The activities in the outer, where everyone has 10 steps or something like that that they think of as a checklist will get them to what they desire as a solution. And that’s something that you realize will never lead to a solution because it just solidifies into some other aspected way of being. 

And you know that what has to be done has to take place in a sense that is invisible, energetically invisible. That’s a statement of the feminine, in terms of her presence in existence. She knows how to not let things stick in a way that creates a discombobulation from our standpoint of attitude or judgment or mannerism. And so it’s a quality of not leaving traces, in terms of being able to hold oneself in an overallness. 

So this quality of being able to be invisible, a feminine trait, is offset by a masculine trait, which is the quality of a natural catching up with a knowingness, where you just have a sense of what is and you’re not continually having to figure out how to peel back to figure out what is. You just have a natural sense in which you know things. 

So the feminine trait is to let go of the mannerisms of a checklisted unfoldment, and know how to invisiblize oneself. The whole idea was, how do you go about when you move through life? What is the way? What is the right adab or mannerism for doing so? And so you dreamt what that is like in the accentuated feminine, and I dreamt what it was like in the accentuated masculine.

Safeguarding the Breath

One element of raising our consciousness is to become more aware of shifts in our inner state, to notice why and when we move from a state of balance to a state of emotion or increased or decreased energy. These shifts signal a new process within, and it is useful to understand when they are triggered in us by someone or something in the outer, and when they are triggered by something within us. When we build this awareness it makes it easier for us to determine what our next move should be.

John: So, in my meditation dream, I’m being hit by abrupt and confrontive energetics in the outer environment. In other words, I’m being hit by that as I’m inside there. Such dynamics cause the heart to cringe, they cause the breath to shorten up. 

Such dynamics cause the mind to do a couple of different things, one is it can speed up and reverb – and it especially gets acted out that way in the outer, in which it will scope ahead as if it has to catch up with something, or has somehow forgotten something, or has momentarily lost control and been uprooted in its spaciality.

The mind becomes uprooted when confronted by that which it has no answer for, in terms naturally connecting and intertwining. In my dream, this dynamic happened twice. And you could say it actually happened a third time, because in the dream I came out and was aware, in the outer, that you were coughing and having trouble staying in a tranquility in your sleep. I was aware of that. It fit with what I was going through. It’s like who’s the dreamer, and who’s the dreamed, in that sense? 

And so, back to the thing, what I am observing is a condition in the environment that occurs when there is friction based upon something that isn’t working with the soul, and the quality of what that is in terms of its descended appearance and mannerism in manifestation. In other words, in matter, to which I liken that, in not being so, to like a personality ego emotion, which is something that is an askewness like an entity energy that carries on in some horrible way. 

So to look at this at this time is interesting. In the outer yesterday, this bounced off because we were all wary, generally speaking, and therefore abiding or holding the recrimination of the past in kind of an abeyance in order to come closer to a nostalgic, airiness way. However, the mannerism that is choking the heart cuts the thread; in other words, mannerisms that choke the heart. In other words, asinine jokes and just flip-flopping instead of holding a continuity. It keeps one from holding a quality of an inner thread, in the outer, because you’re getting hit with something that’s clumpety-clunk and not in the free-flow. 

Well, that was still in the atmosphere, but not directly projecting itself in the out-of-control way as it had the night before. So the contracted miserable sensation of the first night was kind of recreated again, in my meditation, but this time it was done where I could have the contrast of an etheric balance able to notice the projection, instead of it putting one into the grave, so to speak. It’s a type of real dying to go through that kind of cringing. 

So the reason for the dream is to be able to have a better handle of denoting when this happens. It happened even in the dream group we went to, except I handled it, but not completely. And that’s why I ended up having to tell the dream because I had to do everything I could to break this projection stigma. 

That’s very interesting. That might be the key. A person can get out of that if the masculine does the forgiving. To denote the contraction when this happens as being the result of another person’s reactions and projections coming across vibrationally as a personality, ego emotional mishmash, because this is a misaligned, foreign entity that is contrary to the non-personal soul in the microcosm of a human body, that can’t comprehend, in terms of what’s going on, what it has to do with the Oneness. In other words, because, basically speaking, your soul listens in a different way. And so if everything is projected as personality and emotion, it’s very confusing, you can’t comprehend it, and it’s apt to cause you to go into a spin, a tailspin. But it’s interesting to see that it’s the masculine that has to forgive that. 

When a person identifies the reactive sensation in the body, in other words to actually identify with that requires you to take a responsibility in terms of the breath. Because in the breath you can hold the cadence between the above and the below, rather than speed up to counterbalance the projection, or cringing in adjunct shock. 

See, I have a tendency of speeding up, changing the story, changing the subject, interrupting. For some reason, I’m not doing that so willy-nilly. And so, if you don’t do that willy-nilly, you’re inclined to cringe in shock. And one should instead, stop, watch, and safeguard the breath. The projection has no effect, and carries no weight, unless we, in our bewilderment, trance out or shut down in a cringing capacity.
