Honoring a Completeness

love-ames-soeursIn this dream image, John is helped by Jeane to correct a wrong decision in a competition. But as we are all the characters in our dreams, what is really being shown is the interplay between masculine and feminine that needs to take place for a completeness to occur. Each aspect of us has its strengths and usefulness – we can’t do everything with only the masculine, or only the feminine, nature in us. We need them both to be in balance because if there is resistance, we lose our connection to the flow. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In this dream I am involved in a competition in which the winner is offered certain rights that involve a certain stadium event, in other words, as a performer or something, and there are already a number of people who have been selected for this glorification, or exaltation, or whatever you want to call it.

And I’m like on the cusp as to whether I’m able to be party to this or not. And initially I am rejected because I collided with the judge simultaneous to crossing a line – so this disqualifies me, which means I have to leave the stadium. This doesn’t feel right to me, but it is what it is and I go along with energetics or notionalities and accept it as my fate.

But I also share what happened too with you, and you do not sit with the energy off the ground like I do in kind of a space that isn’t able to sort itself out, so you can tell this isn’t right. I’m not going to push it, but you just step forward and make the point with the judge to disqualify that this isn’t quite right.

And the way you say that creates a certain groundedness that causes the judge, who is acting in a spirit energy off the ground himself, to do a double take. He’s never had anything call his snap judgement into question. So when you hold your position, you effect the judge in terms of having to inflect to where he’s really coming from and whether he was a little too cavalier.

Now this is like a conviction or a grounding of the spirit energy, and just the fact that you carry that energetic vibration like that causes him to do a double take on what had been a fairly black-and-white determination.

At that exact moment it lifts me up as well, as I then point out to the judge – when before I was just accepting it and not going to say anything – that when there is a tie, because the whole thing hit at the same time with the light at the same time, the tie always goes to the player, not the defender. It is like that in all sports, in all activities, and I mention baseball as an example. In other words, in baseball if a runner is running to first base and the ball gets there at the same time as the runner, if the runner and the ball are simultaneous, the runner is safe, the ball has to get there ahead. In this case, it was identically same/same in terms of the timing and the effect.

The judge reverses himself, and I get the last ceremonial stadium award.

Then the scene switches to where I am before other officials that are part of the whole stadium, and they have come over to express their excitement, or inviting invitational mannerism in terms that I have been selected and I’ve made it. I mention how commendable it was in terms of the character of the judge to reverse himself.

In other words, he recognized something. He went beyond just the black-and-white, and how this freed something up. It got rid of a stigma that had been continuing to carry and impose itself overtly, and had a certain absoluteness to it that you couldn’t get beyond. And I mention again that in every game, the tie always goes to the player who is initialing the contact.

The stadium officials felt that with the transgression having created a false sense of security, that the person who then had to be told, that had thought that they had made it and now the reversal is in, that it would be too much then to use the normal black-and-white and bar this person from the area. And so this person is offered one of those penthouse oversized kind of box office chairs in the stadium in order to observe the unfoldment.

My sense is that that was a wonderful resolution on their part in helping with the integration of it all, as a resolution of it all, in other words, to keep from slamming the heart in another way and still staying in a density. To have barred this person from the stadium would have been too black-and-white and would have crushed the heart.

So in the end the way things worked out turned out different than originally planned or designed, in other words the black-and-whiteness, or the inner and outer separation is breaking down, in other words the consciousness of the whole needed to be brought into the picture.

That’s kind of the meaning, but in the meaning I point out first of all a kind of what’s going on type meaning, and then a deeper meaning. I’m aware of how something needs to be from having identified it on an inner plane of myself. This has gotten lost in the outer denseness of things.

I am struggling to reach and awaken this reality that touches all of life. To do so I have to find a groundedness, and in doing that I can’t just submit to dense outer unnatural mannerisms that keep a flow from evolving. My problem is I haven’t yet assimilated the consciousness in my being, a consciousness to how something needs to be held as a spirit energy, and then in a grounded way so that there is a full memo coming across.

So I am still prone to accepting biases that stifle change and keep the heart from opening up. The difference between inner, the player, and the outer, the defender and judge even, is not supposed to be such a black-and-white trait. The outer has a responsibility to take in what comes through, take it to heart when touched, and adjust accordingly. Because I am so spirit energy oriented and tend to overindulge, I can miss appreciating a process flow in terms of how this is essential for change.

The feminine knowing of what is whole and complete in creation can sense the distinction, and her groundedness brings the inflection that is meant to be. She’s able to bring it through.

The deeper meaning is that this dream is suggesting that I am catching up with the inner/outer flow which needs to touch all of life. My lighthearted but crushable off-the-ground masculine mannerism is finding an embodied grounded feminine magnetism. When only on an outer body level there was no intertwining or natural recognition. The barriers and gaps go away when the intertwining occurs. And when the intertwining occurs, a long lost joyousness is awakened. It is this reawakened joyousness that glorifies, that honors, a completeness.

Getting It Right

dream-mirror-dreams-can-come-true-31082814-900-900In this interesting series of images, Jeane struggles with people and things being in the right place at the right time. Yet the dream is providing her with the guidance she needs – and it comes in the form of a memo written by her and handed off to a man who was her former teacher. In this way, information is exchanged between the masculine and feminine elements in her and, because the memo is received, progress can be made in getting everything lined up. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Last night I felt like I had so many dreams and they kind of reverb-ed, or they’d come back and give me some details that would be added to them later – so it was very hard to hold onto.

I remember one dream it felt like there was something that was written, maybe in the back of a little folder or something, that I was trying to give to someone that had been a coach of mine before. Then there are some details of that dream that come back after another dream.

And the last dream I was having it feels like I’m in a household and I’m in a bed with a woman that’s somewhat attracted to me, and then we’re sharing the bed maybe with someone else also because there’s going to be like a wedding in a family so everyone’s kind of bunking up together.

Earlier that day, though, we had gone somewhere where we’d been involved in some kind of craft activity, and there was also some dancing going on on a stage. And then we’d come back home and it felt like we were involved in things for the wedding.

But at first, in this dream, we’re in the bed and suddenly I notice some kids crawling over a fence trying to get into the house. And so they’re going to sneak into the house, so I get up and chase them out into the yard. Then I go to see what’s happened and it feels like the neighbors are all sitting around in their backyards and they just hadn’t been supervising the kids, and the kids thought the house was empty because we had the lights turned off.

So I just made sure they know someone’s home and I guess I want the neighbors to be supervising their kids a little bit more. Then I go back to bed, but now there are several more people in the bed including someone I think I’m kind of uncomfortable with.

Then about the time things start to settle down I hear a noise in the next room and it’s like the groom and his family, who are kind of devout Muslims, and kind of conservative, and might be bothered by everybody sleeping together like we are, have come into the living room and they’ve kind of snuck over to do some decorating and bring some things over for the wedding.

So when that happens, it feels like someone in my family arrives then and they sort out where everybody’s sleeping – so some of the people that had gotten into the bed that actually, a sister or someone else that belonged in another bed, or that they were sharing a bed upstairs, it’s like they sorted everybody out like we were in the beginning with how we were supposed to sleep.

And then right after that it’s like some details from the other dream… well, there were two things that happened and some information that came in. And one was someone was talking to me about the dancing that I’d observed earlier, and then she was telling me that if I wanted there was a scholarship to go to this dance class.

And I recognize that Dustin Hoffman, the actor, is the one who’s kind of supervising the dance class and I’m kind of indicating that I didn’t even practice with the dance group so I don’t see it being appropriate for me to go to that dance class; somebody that had been doing the dancing should go.

At the same time, the earlier dream where I’d been trying to give something to the coach, some pages in a pamphlet or something, those papers come back and I look at them and I see that he didn’t actually take it, but he did sign it, so that I knew that he saw it. That’s when I woke up.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night had to do with alignment, and the process of the alignment for you was different than the process for me.

The process for you was in catching up with the memo, or the information, that then put things into a proper flow, and in sequence, and in order which, because it’s memo oriented and it is something like this that is directing what needs to unfold, that’s a masculine quality, that’s a masculine trait.

In other words, the dream did not question, or challenge, or put you into having to be held accountable for not being in the right place, or in the right sequence of things – based upon a naturalness. The dream left it upon directives that you needed to catch up with, which is masculine energy. You have all of the natural components then. It was only then that things could be put into place, otherwise things remained dark. You couldn’t quite get the flow going right. It was out of cadence.

So the key to your dreaming being of this nature was right at the very beginning, on that little image that you couldn’t quite remember, that you said was going to come back in, which had to do with passing the note, or the memo, across and getting it heard.

And what was really fascinating was that it was acknowledged. I kept wondering, okay, is this going to show that it’s hit-and-miss? But, no, you are getting the memo, you are getting the information that you need to get in order to be able to be in flow. And when you’re off, and you can feel yourself as off, and you can feel yourself as off in relationship to a schematic of things that are happening around you in the environment, it’s because you somehow or another are not hearing inside of yourself that which you need to hear in order to keep yourself properly aligned and properly attuned.

So what’s interesting is what was required for you to be aligned, and intertwined properly, with the cadence of what is meant to unfold, had to do with a type of information or guidance -because even the relatives got involved as it repeated in that sequence, to make sure that it was right – and there’s a whole value associated with it being right. In this case the word value has more to do with a proper listening center, or hearing center. Isn’t that interesting?

An Intertwined Connection

kiThese dream images invoke the need to be intertwined with creation. What prevents such a natural state? Well, when we’re too intertwined with the outer world we cut ourselves off from the whole. Does that mean we must forsake the world to spiritually develop? No, the greatest service is to be in the world, but not be of it. In other words, don’t take it personally. The life of the culture and society is not why we’re born here. We need to be in the whole in an inner way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then in the dream, I am required to finish a kind of a task, or assignment, whether it’s term paper or just what it is, because it has a bit of a setting at a university in order to finish the image. And there’s only one condition: I’m not allowed to have certain identified limitations.

In other words, this is an assignment that has, as a guideline for what I am to do, this requirement. And in order to drill it in, I even see it written on a placard, and I notice that it’s supposedly an ancient quote of Plato. I’m surprised to see and hear it.

In other words, it is a direction pointed for the journey I am on, in other words as my assignment or guidance, and I also see it written on a plaque on the wall, as the one thing you cannot do. Other than that there are no rules.

How this is going to work out, I am not sure because the specifics of identification do not exist. In other words, in this dream I have not plugged into any defined curricula that I can say is definite and distinct that I go to, and that I do, and that I remember. I see others going to and fro, and I can pause thinking that I should be like that, but then I realize that I have not been carrying on like this for so long in the outer that I don’t know where to go. What the class is. I don’t have a good sense of how I’m handling time in that regard anymore.

And so how do I change, or remember, some limiting protocol that I have failed to comply with? Well, maybe it’s because that hurt me to comply with it, because just the glance back at it causes one to shrink. So on that level of looking at what is going on with everyone else around me, and my involvement in that, I’m not there. I have fallen off to one side from all of that; I’m somewhere else.

The sinking feeling of looking at that like I should be there, that sinking feeling keeps me from realizing that I just can’t do that that way. In other words, this is like repeating the guidelines of what occurred before in which I can’t do anything specific. I have to take on the assignment in the overall which flows through me in an undefined way, this being how it is meant to be both according to Plato and the guidelines I am under.

Also as a meaning is I am immersed in an overall that I am trying to make sense out of. I cannot do it if I dwell upon anything in particular. I am meant to be in an intertwined flow. If I am not, I am disjointed and am unable to be comfortable in my whereabouts.

And then I had this other dream that portrayed me holding an inner energetic in spite of things being chaotic all around me. And the way the image was, was I’m in a chair and I’m sitting against the wall trying to be quiet – just sitting in the chair. I don’t want to do anything that looks too out of place, so at least I’m okay with the image of just sitting in the chair with my eyes open – looking around, but not necessarily involved with others, just being in a quiet space.

And other people around me are acting like they’re enjoying themselves. They’re carrying on this way and that way, partying, drinking, carousing, gossiping, and at times it’s even spilling over and as they’re trying to get my attention, and get me to bite off and go into their antics, and it’s hard for me to maintain a presence that is connected to the flow of an inner energetic.

In other words, that sort of thing is pounded out at me in my direction. In other words, they’re all into their camaraderie or whatever it is, and I seem to be the quiet one off to one side. They can’t have that because they’re carrying on like they’re carrying on. But at some point I realize that I’m wavering and need even more focus and attention.

I get rid of the chair that I’ve been sitting on and, instead, sit on the ground in meditation so that I can actually go somewhere beyond all of that. And under this more quiet pose, I can maintain the inner space. But as time progresses the evening comes up, everything recedes, and then the entire area around me becomes a space where bedrolls are laid out.

And I realize that this has always been like this, and everyone has a claimed, specific place for their bedroll. It’s as far as you can see. And a young girl lays her bedroll in front of me where I am sitting, and I come out of my inner depth to talk to her.

She’s okay with what she was doing, ordinarily, though, her bedroll comes to the wall where I am sitting so this adjustment is going to set off a chain reaction shift to accommodate that. In other words, if she shifts, others are going to have to shift because she shifted into their space a little bit – because she didn’t have the spot that I am sitting on.

I’m the only one that’s sitting. Everyone else is going to be going to sleep. I didn’t realize that this would happen when I chose the spot to sit, so I am contemplating if I should leave or move, although I do not know where to go because the whole area, as far as I can see around me, is spoken for – so I wake up.

The meaning is to connect inside to a more inclusive inner flow is to relate to the whole in such a way that preexisting patterns naturally shift. And it also answers the question of the very first thing coming out of meditation in terms of: whose fault is it?

In other words, you could easily see, okay, the reason why you’re continuing to carry on and having troubles and anxieties and getting caught up in things is because you’re not getting the memo, something isn’t given to you.

And it goes on and on and on and on and on like this, and whose fault is this that you still see yourself doing things that you don’t really, when you really look at yourself, quite accept?

And the full sequence of the dreaming answers that question as well. It points out that you have the means to take and go into an intertwined connection, and you just have to adhere to that -and it all works.

But, if you’re unwilling to adhere to that, and feel that you can go off this way and that way and look at life in relationship to everything through the senses, then how can you complain? This is what you chose. And when you shift, it’s all there. It’s all provided and made available to you in as simple a format as can be possibly imagined.

But you have to allow that to be. It just doesn’t get imposed upon you. If you want it imposed upon you, then you would do something in terms of a natural realness. So nothing is straightaway influenced, and so you can’t attribute fault in the way that a person attributes fault in terms of evaluating things in terms of how they have to work out in terms of one’s understanding through the senses.

You just have to adopt the space, and hold the place, where you’re meant to be, that is cycled within, that has to do with the over body of the wholeness of yourself that is intertwined. And then everything shifts accordingly. That’s just how it works. It doesn’t work the other way around where you can complain about it having to work out, and be this way, or that way as if you’re entitled to defining things like that.
