The imagery of Jeane’s dreams points out the aspect of hearing during a dream, which can come as actual speaking voices or as an inner knowing. It is just such an inner guidance that can give us confidence in the direction we are heading. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Before I went to bed last night I was watching the Masterpiece Theater. The period piece setting wound around the early 1900’s.

And so when I went to sleep I continued dreaming about that time period, because the thing about that time period is that there were so many changes occurring that people could actually move out of class roles that they had.

So what I’m dreaming about is that there’s a chauffeur that suddenly discovers that maybe he can change professions, you know, like women suddenly are going to get to vote. They can move around more. I’m observing these changes, and for a while it’s just that, observing that this person can do this now that he couldn’t do before – that sort of thing.

Then it feels like I had phoned someone and made an appointment. It’s almost like I don’t know if it’s someplace I’m going to go, or stay, but I hadn’t confirmed it, and it’s getting time to go there.

You’ve picked me up and we’re getting ready to drive. There’s a road, a kind of narrow road, that goes down along some trees to the waterfront, or wherever this place is that I’m going.

John: It’s like a second dream, and it may be repeating the first dream but using a different scenario. Because in the first dream, basically what you’re doing is you’re taking an octave off of what has been a theme of the previous night, and you’re finding that, however the characteristic and trait is, inside of yourself, where you may have been this or may have been that – it can evolve into something different. It can be about something different. It could come together in a different cohesive manner.

Part of the dreaming last night was in terms of finding the linkage and the connection of things, in terms of how an energetic can actually then come out of a disequilibrium and find a cohesion. And so the first step of your dreaming is to be able to see that that which is kind of one way, can actually change, and shift, and take on a mannerism, and a means, and an expression.

In other words, it can grow out of one way of being and evolve into yet another way of being. Which is very similar to the idea of being able to clear a space from a distance, and then suddenly not quite able to touch the overall in all of that sequence anymore, but then have a natural sight about what can be there instead, a substitute. When the clearing is at another level of depth, but then the sudden sight about a situation is now at a greater succinct closeness, it brings something directly through. And so you don’t quite have the amnesia of the clearing, which was effective as an amnesia, because you let go of it that way.

You’ve actually pulled something more precisely through, so it’s changed, and has gone into an octave in which you don’t even really necessarily realize it, where you have just a natural sight about something that wasn’t there before.

Well, this particular dream then is taking an octave of that and showing that you shouldn’t find any alarm or shock to noting that something can just naturally evolve and can be one way and then that can evolve into something else. There’s something interesting about that and so then your second dream is doing what now?

Jeane: The second dream, it’s like I’ve made a reservation somewhere but I haven’t confirmed it and it’s the day I’m supposed to arrive there so I know it’s important to get there. Well, you’re driving, and we have to kind of go over to a little peninsula and then you drive along, it’s almost like palm trees or something, and then you turn right, and you drive along this little road. And then it will emerge eventually at a harbor area or something where the hotel is.

Well, I know this timing is kind of tricky. So it’s time to make the right turn, and suddenly you start dithering like, “I’m not sure this is the road,” or this or that. And so I snap at you because it’s like, “Excuse me, we just need to get going down this road.”

And at the same moment it’s like I can hear that the hotel or whatever is calling because they haven’t heard for a confirmation on the reservation, and they’re going to cancel it if we’re not there. They haven’t canceled it, I don’t think, but I know it’s just important to get there.

John: So you’ve taken and you’ve done the same thing that I did. In other words, you’re trying to take and pull together a cohesiveness of energy, so that the expression of a flow of something is disorienting, and discombobulated, and imbalanced, and misaligned as it would normally be. So part of that is to know where you belong, or what part you hear of yourself, that you know is clearly you.

You have taken and, first of all, in the first part of your dream, you have seen some aspect of yourself capable of shifting and evolving to reveal something important. Well, what is important is the succinctness to a hearing center that enables you to know where you’re calling, or orders, or flow needs to go. And so as you do that, as you’ve made that shift, which is more masculine, I, in the dream, have shifted to trying to dither or be in this overall space, and it doesn’t feel right.

Well, you have the clarity of a masculine, an insight of a masculine, and not only do you know that it should be done, but you know that it has been designed that way. It’s been pent up, it’s been held, it’s been placed, it’s meant to unfold, and now you get it.

When you didn’t get it you could kind of be more easygoing and relaxed, and just see how things went and maybe have a little uneasiness if the flow was a little off. But when you really do kind of get something it creates a succinctness in the knowingness that’s not to be denied.

In other words, the order of everything else in relationship to that seems to be askew, almost as if you’re vacuum connection, that sees the target straightaway, is so acute that everything else by comparison kind of loses its imagery or semblance and, yes, it can get like that.

You’ve put it together by taking your overallness and connected to a knowingness that comes through you, that is like a type of masculine trait. And how that works in relationship to this more natural lilt, that just kind of hung out before more amnesic, is kind of the part that I’m playing or representing in the dream.

This is a dream that is adding to what took place last night where a certain kind of way of clearing something, or holding something, in the overall has evolved to a shifted aspect of your being where you have a natural knowingness. And now that natural knowingness has come under command, has come into such a succinctness that it operates.

This actually is something that can be seen as a quality of light that shifts time and space. In other words, you can’t tell the distance and you can’t tell the time. In other words, you don’t know what era you’re in even. Even all of that can get shimmery. You’re describing that almost like that, only you’re using the example where nothing – no dithering, nothing – could stand in the way because you could tell that it’s beckoning, it’s calling, it’s something that’s been determined, and there’s no equivocation any longer. There’s no confusion any longer.

John: It’s funny, our dreams are twined, but I do it so differently.

Last night I was struggling because I noticed that my painful shoulder issue is related to the fact that I’m not shifting to an inner flow for the solution. There’s something on the other side that I’m not catching up with.

As a consequence, my attention to the reflection in the outer causes the shoulder imbalance. There’s a kind of peculiar mannerism in me that still holds on to that, and I’m not aware of exactly what it is.

Essentially, I could understand it if there really still was some outer approach that I needed to recognize, but I don’t think there is. Yet, with the inner trying to come through in some way, and the outer struggling to keep hold, it tears me up inside.

I notice this at night. One of the reasons I can sometimes sleep with the pain is because, deep down inside, I know that this is something that I can’t solve in an outer way, I have to solve it in an inner way. But, depending on what level of sleep I’m in, I also believe that there’s something else that I should be doing in the outer.

So there’s a contradiction, or struggle. In other words, I don’t shift into the whole like I might. This causes me to realize that I can’t keep trying to fight things, thinking that approach will work. It’s hard on my inner sensibilities when I don’t adhere to them, and that causes the physical body to have to go through a lot of anguish.

Basically, what I’m talking about is when a person chooses to set something aside, or suppress it, as opposed to dealing with it. Let’s say it’s a trauma, and it affects the body. It can cause the body to break down, or you can get blindsided in some more subtle way that could become very serious.

It shows the nature of how the inner works, and how the outer is just a reflection of that. I’ve got to be careful if I’m going to go on (outer) tangents, when I should know better in terms of the inner. The body gets beat up because, through development, the body is actually getting more sensitized, which means that my sensitization is based upon getting closer and closer to an interconnectivity. So I feel the imbalance and this is like a friction that tears away at my wellbeing – on a physical level.

If I don’t notice this contradiction, then the body can stay unconscious. But, if I start to notice the imbalances, they tear at me. That’s why getting more conscious or sensitive is actually harder on the body, because I feel that movement inside and that movement inside has to be handled, or grounded. When we become more sensitive, even what we eat is different in order to try to appeal to the subtler aspects that are afoot.

Eating like I did yesterday, ribs and a greasy pulled-pork sandwich, was taxing to the system. But what really made it taxing was I added all the popcorn to it, which is another thing that can create heartburn, and the combination set off something inside that was very painful most of the night, like something deep in the esophagus. I was getting up and eating applesauce and everything else, but I wasn’t really able to soothe it very well.

So, between the heartburn and the fact that I had no inner solution for my shoulder, i.e., still debating whether something more can be done in the outer rather than shifting it from within, I was going back and forth and in a lot of physical pain.

But it’s kind of like our friend’s example, when he says his blood pressure is down because he’s no longer taking things so seriously. And there’s truth in that.

We wreak such havoc on ourselves. I mean, sometimes I’m able to go somewhere within, to a level that knows the shoulder is part of the inner process, and I’m able to coexist with it. But when I don’t, and I still relate to something in the outer, then the shoulder pain does a number on me.

Of course, the degree I buy into an outer solution as a way of looking at any issue, is the degree to which I dull my consciousness and end up fighting against the reflection, as if that’s real. This approach with the outer is preventing me from letting go on the inner.

So I struggle, and in struggling I remain confused. I can know that everything in life works from the inner to the outer, but to truly live that is a natural knowingness that comes from this inner state of the higher self.

It’s not yet possible for me, so I tear myself down physically by over identifying with how I am, in everything, while I don’t quite acknowledge the inner presence. This contradiction just feeds the inner struggle.
