In thinking about the chemistry of things, we might see that everything interacts, and, when they do, new and different states are created, or attained. And when the balance of ingredients changes, the character and nature of what has been created can also change. For us, when we are too self-involved in outer events, we have changed the chemistry of our flow in life and limited its possibilities. Likewise, when we surrender to the flow, it can change our state for the better. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So I probably described how it works, in terms of how you feel it. As a process I would describe it in terms of why I’m describing it like this, and why am I seeing this, is I’m making note of this energetic as something meant to be when the chemistry of consciousness is able to get out of its self-limiting way. I’m seeing this as a reflective action in the outer. 

So what is really going on is, when I go to the heart of it all, this is not about an outer event. Sure, it can be like that, because the inner and outer, the inner touches in the outer, but what is going on has, at its roots, an inner quickening. This is such a quickening that manifestation, in terms of time and space, can come into alignment to a flow that is meant to be in an intertwined way. 

And, of course, I’ve described how you do that, in terms of absorbing something, so that they see something, so that they take it to heart. If they don’t take it to heart, then they just go back into the usual minutiae. And sometimes people go backwards because it can have a collateral damage effect of being something too much. 

So for this to occur upon an outer level, the inner has to be heartfully and graciously accommodated. In other words, you don’t just pick up your paranoia. When that is so, magic happens. When not, then what goes wrong is the result of an energetic that isn’t able to take a step because it is not in the right state of being. The right state of being requires a realness from within that goes into matter. 

Where does one generally see this in life? In a teacher/student relationship where the student catches a hint, or speeds up, and there is a feedback, collectively, or consciously, in terms of the outer reflective that is testing. The way this works is, and it works like this in the dream world as well, but it’s all an invoking process, is that if something happens in the outer that needs to be drilled down on because it’s a peculiar mannerism, then you can drill down on it on the dream level. And you drill down on it on a dream level more intensely, in order to absolve the quality or the characteristic. 

Because you’ve delved into it and drilled down on it on a dream level, you now then have a knowingness that can take and observe this particular quality inside yourself. It doesn’t mean that it went away just because you dreamt down on it. As a matter of fact, it probably got worse because it was pulled out to a key. But, at the same time that it was pulled out like that, you also now have the capacity to see it more clearly; before it might have been just a blur way of you being such and so and not thinking anything more about it. And not realizing that underneath all of that was this other percolating. 

And then if you dealt with this other percolating, you actually dealt with a certain way, a way of feeling yourself, that is imbalanced. But by not dealing with this quality, you continue to stay in this kind of defined imbalance. And it’s hard to take and address something like this because you don’t like to see yourself like that, you don’t like to be like that. 

And so dreams to a large degree cause some of this stuff to get a little bit on edge and a little bit chaotic in your environment around you because you made it louder inside of yourself so that in the outer it triculates, too.

This is all kind of an interesting process in waking up. And the way you would say that is it’s like when you have speeded up, or woken up, in this capacity inside of yourself, it’s like you have taken in something more loudly that you’re meant to be able to absorb. And to the degree to which you don’t, in the outer it comes back at you. The dream process causes this to happen. It’s very interesting. It’s why you can go along and you can talk to people about very insightful things, and you could sit there and you can see that the reason why they don’t understand the very insightful things is because they keep this part of themselves in check; they haven’t faced that yet.

And for you, it’s kind of on a razor’s edge and you’re still trying to sort it out. And for them, it’s dormant. And so there’s an interesting dilemma in that, to what degree do you create a collateral damage or effect when you wipe something out, so to speak, too quickly, or bring it to a state of attention too abruptly in terms of how it is that they’re able to facilitate a relationship with themselves that is more real? 

That’s why, in terms of describing it, you generally see this in the teacher/student relationship, in which the teacher absorbs something so that a transmission takes place, which is normally blocked out by the student. And such a subtle transmission takes on the karma of the student, or helps the student go beyond his own karma. It’s almost kind of like a subtle shift. And it enables them to see maybe who they are more closely, and yet the student must be able to survive the naff collateral damage when it flashes back – in order for a transformation to sustain itself.

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.
