Posts Tagged ‘awakening to yourself’

atticIf we could rummage around inside of ourselves, what might we find? We might be fascinated by items we haven’t seen in a long time, or that we’d completely forgotten about. And we might come across items that have been there all along but we’d never dug deep enough to uncover them. That’s one of the services our dream life provides us – a chance to explore the hidden parts that we normally never have time for, or don’t have the patience to unearth in light of day.

Jeane: In the next dream it’s like you and I had gone by some place like a smaller town and a county courthouse or something, and you had borrowed something from somebody there that like was a box full of mementos or something from a county. I wish I could remember more details, but it was something like that.

We’ve gone back and we’re standing around with some other people and we’re just picking up a few things that we have that we brought back in our pickup, or whatever we had, and everybody is kind of glossing over this one picture in a frame, but I pick it up and I blow away the dust and I see the picture is of like an old time miner or something, and then down by his feet maybe like a pickaxe and a hat. But I look more closely at the hat in the picture and it’s kind of a dimensional picture and I blow the dust off of it and I realize it’s actually carved out of a gold coin and inscribed.

You see it’s not just a photograph or a carving, that it’s actually made out of gold once you blow the dust off and then you can read the inscription. And then you mention to me that that was one of the things that we had borrowed that we’re going to have to be returning to the place in the country. And I’m just really interested because it kind of caught my eye because everyone thought it was kind of worthless, but it was actually made out of gold and was rather interesting.

And then I’m looking through other things in a trunk that I kind of even feel some of them go back to Native Americans, but I’m a little concerned because in looking through it I’ve disturbed the order in which it was kind of laid, or packed, in the trunk, and I’m not sure how easily it’s going to be to kind of fit everything back in in the right way. That’s all I really pulled out of that dream.
John: This is a dream in which what you’re doing is you’re feeling inside of yourself a suspense, or kind of a way of something that’s coming, or awakening, that’s impending in other words to open up.

Initially you see it in bits and pieces and flashes, much like one comes to have dreams that they don’t know necessarily what they mean. But eventually it’s an accumulative process that over a course of time what seemed to be fairly insignificant and meaningless becomes something that has a completeness about it, that becomes something that you find is a true treasure.

This then takes you to realizing that the journey that you’re on is like that. Before this all kind of happened casually, in other words where something was deemed not all that significant and kind of worthless but there was an inner suspense inside of yourself that helped trigger this meandering towards something like this that can open up for you. And then all of a sudden now it has, and it has a huge meaningfulness, a completeness to it. It has a viability in and of itself.

This creates, then, a change of focus so to speak in which you now find yourself purposely looking for more. And the dream is saying, don’t lose the wonderful sensation of how the other just opened up and caught you and swept you in – in kind of a natural way. Because when you actually go out there and try to pick up the pieces for yourself, and go into the hidden treasures of things, you have a tendency to get this stuff skewered every which way and not know how to access it in a manner, and in an order, and in a sequence that is important.

The dream in and of itself is telling you, the fact that you can see that you can get something discombobulated in terms of going into the chest of things that is there to be found and reached, and it’s only possible because you did get to the gold coin, and that just acts as the catalyst to more and more and more of this.

But now that you know that you’re in a process that’s more and more and more, you have to listen more attentively inside of yourself to make sure that it unfolds in a way that touches the heart. And when you do that, then that makes sure that it unfolds in a way that doesn’t get out of order, or discombobulated, and cause you to go off on some spiritual tangent or mannerism that’s not in keeping with the process.

And there is a great tendency for that to happen once you suddenly get the memo of what it’s like and what it’s about. Then you can tend to turn your attention towards that and try to help it along – and that can create a problem.

6wioWhat is a bias? Well, one way to think about it is that it is a partial view that we have settled upon as final. And, once we do, it is very difficult to re-open the discussion, or to add new information to whatever that bias is about. But what is important to remember is that everything we know is just a partial view – we don’t know the whole of anything. In that sense, we can see that there is always more information to be discovered, and, therefore, a possibility of greater understanding, if we continue to add new knowledge to whatever subject we are dealing in.

John: I’ll tell my sleep dreams first because the sleep dreams kind of correspond with this sort of thing. One is like an image of something more that hearkens to the innerness, and then the other is all action and all words. So I’ll start with the one that’s all verbal. One is an image, and one is all verbal.

The one that’s all verbal is this woman has called me up on the phone. She doesn’t believe in dreams, but I talk her into telling me some dreams that she had that night to try and show her that there is something more going on in the dreams that she considers just insignificant.

So the first dream she tells me has to do with a whole state of a closeness and relatability that she has with another person, that goes on and on and on and on and on. And the next dream she tells me is a dream in which she is criticizing, or critical of something. She is reacting. She’s very strict with something.

And so what do the two dreams mean? And she’s convinced, of course, they have no meaning. And I tell her that in the first dream she was overwhelmed by an inner vibration, that she is seeking to look at, that has to do with a soothingness. And then that soothingness is being contrasted in the second dream by that which is critical, and she’s having to reconcile those two. By reconciling those two, she creates an alignment for herself in terms of the inner vibrational essence that she needs to be more rounded with, and take in in a more complete way.

In other words, you don’t just go for the soothingness, you also have to be a realist and take in something that sees things, or appreciates the unfoldment that doesn’t necessarily go according to some sort of script, that also can be firm, and poignant, and probing in terms of its affect upon one.

And you have to align that and contrast that and, if you don’t do that, then each of those dreams is like a quality of amnesia. You dismiss it as having a meaningfulness, and therefore you do not reach, or go beyond, the external effect. You dismiss it, so you don’t relate or correlate yourself to that inner essence that’s waking up – and yet, in her dreams, the game was afoot. That was in motion.

And what’s behind all of that is that inner essence quality trying to come across in two distinct ways, the bringing of that through from behind a reflective world, the bringing of that through to a vibratory presence in her – and that’s soul.

So that was a dream… I’ve never had a dream where I had an all action of dreams told to me, that I then was required to interpret in order to prove a point that there is something behind all of that that is what is real and not what is being reflected.

droplet-152Living a simple life is usually imagined as one of austerity, with having only the fewest things that one needs. But that’s not really the point. Simplicity is seeing everything from one perspective, through the filter of purpose and meaning. In this way, a person doesn’t have to struggle with the many things, because when one knows who one is, and why one is here, the many things are only of passing interest and don’t clutter up our lives with their distractions. We can see things for what they are, without them affecting who and what we are. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then I had a series of dreams. This one dream I wrote up, I am with a person, and we go to where I am hidden from others. Now this dream, this vibrational aspect, kind of came up in regards to the stillness, and what I’m suddenly realizing, as reported in the meditation dream, that if people suddenly catch that they have to do something in terms of shifting, getting outside of how it is that they are, that they’re trapped by, that they will react to that. They won’t necessarily accept that. And because they don’t necessarily accept that, you almost have to keep this issue to yourself.

And so I find myself going to a place, a safe place, that is very simple, and doesn’t cause a concern. Stillness can cause a concern, stillness sets in motion things that act as a kind of a force of nature, in terms of the environment, because they inflect something more. And that something more can be hard for a person to take. It can create a reflective reaction that’s unpredictable.

So I see myself go to a place that is pulling myself off to one side. And in this place there’s a shower and one room, and it’s enough. And I am relieved to have found this place. In other words, at least it’s a place that I can sit with as a spot that I can occupy – as everything else around me goes on.

And so in realizing I can make do with it, I also notice it is in an isolated part of kind of an energetic town, or an area of town where there’s not a lot going on to cause a lot of unnecessary vibratory attention or something. So it’s in a place where to whatever degree maybe something has been stirred up, it’s not inclined to look for me there.

But I also have to go a distance with the companion who accompanied me here, so that he can go back, or find his way to where he needs to be, and where he has yet to cope. And that’s more out in the open; but it’s okay because no one is directly looking for him. But I still am concerned that he knows where I went to be still. But, I also know, if he remains hidden, in terms of how he carries himself, he won’t stir something up like a force of nature and he’ll be safe.

Now when I am back at this place, because I don’t have him, I get confronted with the dilemma of having to take on a roommate, and the reason that I argue that I have to do that is because this place has a shower in it that I wasn’t anticipating having the need for. I don’t know how I thought I was going to cope. And I don’t have a towel to use, and so I’m feeling that I need to have someone there that brings in the towels.

And then I wake up contemplating what other sacrifices I am going to make do with, in terms of involving and having to contend with parts of myself that are pushed aside, or are separate, in terms of this idea of trying to be alone with myself

And the meaning is that there are all these parts of myself, there’s the part in which I traveled to a hiddenness within, and you don’t just take and withdraw with that from the world, and so I need to kind of work with that, and accompany that; it’s like a shadow aspect of myself in terms of the wholeness.

But now I’m kind of doing some sort of herky-jerky where maybe I do it up to a degree, but not all the way through. And then that means that when I try to hold to the stillness, there’s still something affecting me, in which I’m not getting off my back. In other words, you function anew not by taking and obliterating things that you’re meant to pull in as a wholeness.

So the significance is, this dream is in a response to the sensation vibration of how do I function when my nature and beingness becomes something that is, by its way of holding a stillness, from the stillness the vibrations that exist around it are affected?

And this is one of the first dreams in which I look to contend with the energetic. Now I’m contending with it by trying to push away from it, which can lead to a spiritual illusion – which is shown in the next dream.

But, in this dream, I find myself coming up with the idea that the problem is that I am not taking into account the greater interconnected beingness. The connection may be grounded in the simplicity of life, and I must let go of creature comforts to stay simple in order to include others as part of myself. But to sustain this simplicity, the dilemma that I’m confronted with, that I haven’t broken out of it’s amnesia because what caused me to have to do this was an overexposure, and now, can I go the other way and not let them know anything other than what somehow leaks out inflectively?
