crackIf we think about a life in service to something higher – which is fundamental to religions and spiritual paths – we usually call up in our minds the selflessness of people such as Mother Teresa. But, as this dream points out, it doesn’t have to look like that at all. In this image we see that the privacy of the person is gone, that everything being done is seen, on an energetic level, and that there is a contract and responsibility in that relationship. Honoring that contract is what service to something higher is all about. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The only thing I remember of my dreams was seeing something like a black panther run across my vision. Then I was awake for a lot of the night. And then I had this dream where you and I were living in England, or someplace. There were a few other people that were staying with us, and some young men, and we’d recently gotten a puppy.

In addition to the puppy I think at least one of the other people had a little dog, and then there was a third little dog that was around. At one point, I went and crawled out a window that led to a ledge that was outside, and then the ledge had like two levels, and you had gone out with me.

Then you crawled onto a part of the ledge that was hard to reach, and you said that you were feeling so desperate that the only thing that was keeping you going was the puppy. And you were thinking you had to go somewhere, or go travel. And I wondered if you wanted me to go with you, but you didn’t want me to – so I was a little depressed about that. So I go back in.

Then there’s a series of things that happen. When I first go back in I go and someone else has come that has some new puppies, so all the dogs are playing together in the living room. So I’ve gone in and I’m with them, and with the guys, and playing with the dogs and the puppies. One of the people that lives with us is going to go take the dogs for a walk.

Then I’m also looking for some laundry to do, and I go into a bathroom and I realize that the window is covered with these kind of blue papers. One of them has fallen apart and I realize I can see into the window of our neighbor’s place. They’re kind of trying to cover up how they can see into ours, but then I realize I’m in the wrong room. I’m in the laundry room instead of the bathroom, that I’m a level down further than I thought I was.

Then I go back into the living room again. And a couple of Middle Eastern relatives, women, come. They come and they must have been celebrating something, like one of the girls must have had a special birthday, or event, and she’s pressing some gifts upon this girl. And they were like an engraved, it almost looked like a platinum bracelet with engraved scenes on it, and two or three other things. And then the girl had also given a gift back to her mother, or whoever else was with them.

And I was kind of studying that out, looking at what had been engraved, or carved, or given. And then I looked around for you, and I went back out; there was someone else sitting where you had been – I didn’t know where you had gone to.

John: The image of the cat running across has to do with something that has been brought to your attention. It’s like a quick glimpse. It’s not like it’s something that’s sustainable. It’s more inflective. By sustainable, I mean it’s not sustainable at this point in time. It’s more inflective. It’s more of a coming through.

An image of a black cat is a change agent kind of thing that is intended and meant to be. It can create a reaction but, even if it does create a reaction, it doesn’t change the fact of what occurred.

And then, the out-on-the-ledge business and the puppy, what that has to do with is the recognition of a quality that goes back and takes something that was inflected as a mere glimpse, progresses it forward to where it is close, like a puppy, that it is at hand to be dealt with. And that to do this requires a certain resolve, and commitment, and one has to make that commitment or they start losing a certain connection.

Which is another way of saying that things have built up in a roundabout way to the point where the reflections in the outer, that had been something that one contended with indifferently, we’ll say, are now reflections that behind those reflections is something meaningful in which one has to tie, or connect, into in terms of their being.

That requires one to align, or to contend, with a certain side of themselves. To do so, because there is a real sadness that prevails when one carries on, or conducts themselves, in a way that keeps this sort of thing in a kind of pacified state.

What that image is about in terms of the laundry room, in terms of the public area, is that what is at hand has an effect that is like a mirroring that goes both ways, with inner to outer, and outer to inner. And that there comes a point to where one’s life is no longer a type of privacy, where you have to contend with the neurosis sides of this, that, or the other of one’s nature, like one would in a bathroom you know, taking care of business kind of thing.

There comes a point in time when you’re kind of out in the open in relationship to things that are all around you, you know visually, in other words, there’s no barriers. You see, they see, it all sees. And when it’s like that, then the quality of a natural knowingness of an openness is there to take in, to be able to behold.

The fact that one dreams every night, you could even correlate that to the laundry room kind of thing, because there is a visual that’s working both ways. That’s also an image that proceeds as a flow from both a kind of light rising down to touch light, or in other words something can see in. And then light rising up to touch light, which is a seeing without; and that’s meant to be kept open.

And when it’s open it enables things to be readily there, which is the image in which there’s a mother, or? It enables that which is kind of out of reach, ordinarily out of reach, in terms of a quality of coming through awareness, it enables that to just be there. It’s just naturally there.

So you put the whole thing together and what you have is you have kind of a shock effect that relates to the fact that there is something more going on than meets the eye: the black cat. Then there’s the having to contend with the idea of whether one is going to be able to meet the challenge of what is presented, and to do so is to relate to the friendly side of yourself, not to the sides of yourself that have to contend with this, and contend with that, in which there’s still some sort of sorting out to do.

You’re working with the inner friend, and to do that you have to completely commit. You have to go out on a ledge. You have to allow things to flow. Well, when you allow things to flow, that allowing of things to flow means that you have to be in a dynamic that is different than what you’re used to being in, in which you have to be like in the laundry room where you’re seen and also see. In other words, you don’t hide, you allow everything to affect you, to touch you.

And when it’s like that, that keeps you in connection to all parts of yourself that are in the wholeness. And the Middle Eastern shows the extending out quality, expansive taking in quality, is there – and, of course, that all works in cohesiveness. There is something about that that all fits, that all comes together. And so the sum total of all of that is your oneness, is the intended oneness on a soul level of your being.

So it starts off with a flicker, and goes from a flicker to a commitment, from a commitment to a surrender, and then from a surrender to an emptiness, to an overallness. Quite a progressed dream.

What IsIn learning about the amazing capabilities of spiritually developed (energetically connected) people, it is hard to grasp that we are capable of the same. Aren’t they special in some way? No. We all have the possibility within us – it’s fundamental to our design. But, just like any skill, such as playing an instrument, we don’t access those parts of ourselves until we begin to practice and have a need for them. Then they awaken to our need. That’s how it works; and the greater the need, the more will awaken in us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Well, it seems to be an important area, because in my meditation dream I see myself going over to an area to see if the access is as needed, in order for there to be a coming and going. In other words, coming and going implies up and down, you know with the breath even, and so there needs to be some access. In other words, you need to break through a veil, or a barrier.

So, even though I do not know anyone personally in this area, they somehow know me, and when they see me they greet me by my name. I would have preferred to stay hidden, but that isn’t an option I have anymore – or at least in this scenario.

And the property that’s involved has a flashing light that requires or invokes the need for a current time representative to handle the scenario. So what we’re talking about in terms of current time representative is some aspect of one’s self, because there is an aspect that doesn’t come down as well into all of this, and that is an aspect that is there kind of for casual reference purposes. And then there is a part of yourself, or a personage that you are with, that has the need to be more caught up in the present time scenario.

And the way I come to know this, is I come to know this when I see within the inflection that rises up, and you can see it as if it has a whole spark connection that goes way, way back energetically. And when you see this flicker of an interest, in a scenario, you know that it is something that needs to link or connect.

This part of myself is set forth as a person who is waiting to be involved in the situation, and so what happens is when he gets involved it’s almost like a document is created where he’s now the state representative and is endorsed as having this role to live out. This is recognized as a rising up of an energetic that goes way back in time, a rising up, or waking up, or a flickering back. I mean it just suddenly is there and you see it. It’s as if it goes way back in time to where there is still the pent up identification that needs to be dealt with in manifestation.

I know what I see to be important, in terms of a process, when I see that. In other words, that’s why when you take and you see a person taking and caught up in things you don’t really have a right to try to change their course because they may be living out an inflection that is ancient – and they have to do that. That’s their reason and their purpose, in terms of catching up with themselves.

And when you see this as a part of yourself, in order to be conscious you have to be able to be at multiple planes, so you have to be able to take that part that is still needing to be involved or inflected, you need to know that that aspect has to live itself out, in some fashion, as a state of being in manifestation.

And, of course, when something like that happens, in a reflective outer world it’s often portrayed as the teacher being from somewhere else, and the students being the arms and the legs of something that acts in the physical. But, on a deeper level, this is all happening in a subtler way inside, and the representative connection – on a subtler level inside – is like the eyes and ears needed for the situation. This does not affect, however, the overall presence when that resides on a deeper inner level permeating over all there is.

So, the meaning of this dream is, in this dream I am coming to know myself more and more in terms of how I am to be in every circumstance of creation, or of manifestation, or of the universe or whatever. I am realizing that there is a part of myself that is called upon, in terms of satisfying the needs of things in life, and that is because everything that is in life is part of me. I was created out of all of those components, and so I have a responsibility over all of that.

And so when some part is quickened from within, in other words, some state is correspondingly in need of being connected and grounded, that is something that has to be brought through with the out-breath. Through this state there is a focus and attention that gets facilitated. This does not compromise an overview quality of an inner self that is the universal overseer. The overseer is intertwined in a capacity that is grounded here, as well as there, because you’ve got the various aspects of yourself that come into an alignment, in that you have aspects able to be here for intertwined reference purposes. So the greater soul part takes on a completeness that emanates from the essence of all there is.

What I’m describing is a process in which I am physically all things, yet still an embodiment essence to all there is. Or to portray it in a more generic depiction, what I’m identifying is how the comings and goings of the in-breath and out-breath correlate.

We speak often about the difference between acting from inner into outer, as opposed to acting from outer into inner. The first is a connected, and connective, universal process, while the latter is a reactive, disconnected, and personal process. Yet on the journey to that way of being, we must enlist all the aspects of our life into a single, conjoined, in agreement state. And what better way to get everyone together than to hold a reunion? When everyone comes together, we can see who is moving forward and who is clinging to the past. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The first dream I’m a little more vague on the details, but it feels like I’ve gone back for some type of a class reunion, except we’re all fairly young in the dream, like maybe the age we were when we last saw each other in high school, or a few years older.

And everybody has gone to the school auditorium in an area where there’s a stage. And when I go there everybody else is out in the common area, and I’ve gone up behind the curtain to the side of the stage – because it feels like I have some kind of a job which will be involved in whatever show is being put on.

But there are a couple of other people back there with me because sometimes I’ll kind of peek out from the curtains and see people. You know, they’re going to have tables where they’re eating, and watching, the show out front, but I’m behind the curtain. And there are two other people that have come and are at a table near me behind the curtain. I guess they’re helping with putting on the show that’s going to be going on, too.

And we start discussing, because I had peeked out, because there was a person that I knew that I want to see if he has come to the reunion or not. And somebody else has said that he knew that this person wanted to see us, but that he’s not there. And then somebody comments that, well, they understand he’d been newly married. And so we kind of laugh and say that’s probably why he hasn’t come, you know. And that was that dream.

John: Well, the theme of the dreaming was the recognition, or a recognition, of how what takes place in the outer is: it’s personal if it’s of a reflection only, but it has a soul quality nature, or it has a quality nature if you don’t want to call it that, that comes from the inner, that awakens then in a reflective mode – perhaps secondarily, or subsequently, in the outer.

What happens is when something opens, from inner into outer, that’s a flow that lifts the heart up. When something awakens from the outer to the inner, that contracts the heart. That’s a contractive vibe on the heart.

The reason why it’s contractive is you’re identifying, when it’s like an outer to an inner, you’re identifying with the physical senses and, therefore, you’re making something separate and personal.

And when it is opening up from inner into outer, it is an expansive thing, it is a revealing thing.

So what you did is, instead of the detail, you just looked at it as a kind of placement where you’re in a setting in which something new is to emerge, and that you’re part of this something new that’s to take place, before all there is that’s out there seeded. And that you’re gathered with those who are part of the putting on of this something new.

Now to some degree you still have some identification with some aspect that you think is still holding you back, or that you have an interest in, or are paying attention to, that is in the outer. And so you look out to see where that is at, and you find out that that has advanced as well, or has moved into no longer a reflective state where it is observing. And when you’re observing, you’re only able to denote reflections because you’re just observing with your senses – that this part of yourself has taken and made a transition. It’s gotten completed, in some fashion, and that’s why it’s no longer in the reflective mode, or setting. Isn’t that interesting?
