In the analysis of these dreams, it is being shown how the images progress to show us something; to make something known to us. If we accept that premise, why would our systems of consciousness and unconsciousness be trying to communicate with us? Because dreams don’t scold us, they may make us feel something, but that’s our reaction to the scenario. And if something is designed to communicate with us, about us, then there has to be a criteria for how a human lives their life, and the system is trying to help us do that. So, what is that criteria? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: All I remember of my very first dream is it was like I was following up this, it almost felt like a stairway carved inside a cave in a rock or something, and I was following someone wearing robes. And all I could really see of him though were orange mala beads around the neck. That was all I really had in that dream was just that image.
I never really saw him, but it seemed like some spiritual figure because he was wearing robes and he had this string of orange beads. I never really saw the person. And I was just following him up a stairway inside a cave it felt like.
In the next dream, it feels like I work somewhere and I’m going over to see a coworker I haven’t seen for awhile and visit with his family that I’ve been friends with. And I go in the house and I notice that the walls are really bare, like the family is living very subsistence or something from normal.
And then I go in the next room, to talk to his folks, I realize his dad has dementia, can’t really talk or reply, and that obviously the family’s being real hurt, or drained, taking care of him. And they didn’t want to tell me, so I just go in and I visit as though everything’s normal.
But then a little while later in this dream I have this scene where I have to arrest this coworker and another coworker because they’ve been embezzling something, but I have the sense that maybe I have to take on some responsibility for his family, then, and that’s all I remember of that second dream.
John: Well, one of the aspects of dreaming that you have to contend with is, the first dream is inclined to indicate where and how you’re at in terms of something that is coming through as a breakthrough, or as a consciousness, or an insight.
And so your first dream has you yet seeing yourself as following something. You’re not seeing something breaking through or coming through. In other words, for whatever reason there is a ponderance that still exists. And the second dream indicates how you’re working with that ponderance.
The first dream when you’re following something it implies that you also have a responsibility, or connection, or a duty and that’s like trying to almost look at it too narrowly because the tendency that can happen is, like in the second dream, where there’s a close correlation to following something, and then feeling that you are obligated as a responsibility to take care of it – in that this could cause you to not pay attention to yourself. And this could cause a type of dementia to exist, in relationship to your connection to your inner higher self quality of the masculine.
So there’s actually a third dream that you didn’t have, and that seems to be the sequence of dreaming. The first dream is usually kind of something that’s coming from afar or a breakthrough, and that coming from afar or breakthrough has you taking and following something yet. In other words not quite accepting to yourself, with yourself, to yourself of how you are. I mean there’s nothing wrong with the following of something. I mean that can be really, really a tremendous connective intertwining.
However, the way you are working with it, or stigmatizing yourself is that you’ve bought into the idea that there’s a duty in this process, you’ve bought into this idea of this duty so loudly that it is creating a certain amnesia in terms of your own completeness.
The third dream, if you’d have had it, would’ve shown what this turns into. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with this, it’s just that, what does it turn into? You know, you are still keeping that hidden. I can see how this, on a dream level, has this one, two, three process to it. To point out the third can almost be too revealing, so there’s a tendency to not see it, or to not want to see it, or to not accept it. Because, again, the first step can be like a little niche-y in a way to understand, what does that mean to be following something? Because that’s actually a very deep meaningful thing.
The second step is how it is that you’re finding yourself working with that, which is where you are stigmatized. And you could be stigmatized in terms of how others see you, stigmatized in terms of how you see yourself, stigmatized in terms of… well, who knows what all of the means are, but it creates a vibrational barrier that you then have to let go of because you are not limited to something like that when it denies some quality of yourself such that you then stay in a kind of dementia. That’s a good word. I better try to remember that word as opposed to amnesia, dementia. That’s actually more to the point.
In other words, your overallness would be a proper container; you know, one can impute what this is meant to look like in the future through the stillness. One can impute what this is meant to look like in the future, and it would be a means of upholding and supporting in an overall sense, much like you see Castaneda doing in relationship to the group. This is what that turns into. You would be doing that in relationship to the whole. So that’s the progression of the dreams.
