John: I keep dreaming that there is a dominant, inner expression that dictates the outer life. This is an influence that is familiar, deep within my natural frame of reference. However, the loudness of everything else – the superficial – drowns out this effect over the short run. 

So this influence silently dictates the overall way things unfold, even though it’s not readily apparent in the outer.

In one image, I see this inner expression represented as a skeletal frame that holds things together. The outer features are what I notice at first, and am apt to be swayed by – like the skin and the flesh on this frame – on a moment-by-moment basis. As a result, the controlling feature in life (the inner expression) takes a backseat to everything else in the outer environment. Or so it seems, even though in the long run the skeletal backbone to life is what ultimately wins out.

In other words, what I saw is this skeletal structure, and it comes all the way down to the ground. So there’s something about the structure that makes an energetic connection to everything that’s rooted in creation. Then the shell, the body, the flesh, and the skin on it is what people pay attention to, it’s what they see, so they’re not aware that there is an aliveness to the structure that actually dictates what is meant to be and how things are to unfold.  

Everyone is paying attention to what is more apparent or obvious, i.e., the denser, outer layer, which is just the wrapper, or the exterior of the skeletal structure. So people base their choices and actions according to appearances, because that’s the easiest to sense and to see.

In other words, the invisible skeletal structure carries the energetic or vibration of what’s meant to be, not the skin and the flesh and everything else that’s visible. But it’s the outer, visible layer that has a loudness that captures the senses, and draws everyone’s attention.

Of course, in the long run, what wins out, in terms of what is meant to be, is determined by the skeletal structure.

Isn’t that a strange image?

So in this dream I feel fortunate in knowing what is actually affecting what manifests in the outer. It’s a wonderful feeling of relief to know that there is inner guidance, determined or destined to come to the forefront of my being.

First of all, I sense this in a fairly general way, but then I realize that my attention is drawn more to the skeletal structure than it is to the outer layers. I do not readily grasp this.

I can feel it and I can know it, but I lose sight of this knowing when I’m caught up in some situation that requires my immediate attention. Even then, when I’m unable to hold onto an inner balance, I’m comforted in a subconscious way with knowing that there is the essence of what is meant to be, like it’s waiting for me to go there, to look there.

In the dream, because I’ve made the choice to have the inner framework to life dictate how I’m meant to live, even my mistakes and detours are simply guided and shaped into what is intended. I find that amazing.

In other words, as I fumble about it’s almost like something else is directing me because whatever I’m doing is being transformed somehow. It’s affected. Sometimes I suffer when this happens, but at other times my input is redirected and guided to bring out the intended inner effect.

I come to know and trust this inner expression, even though it’s not visible; for me it is just as real as what is visible. What is visible in the outer is there for appearances only. I’ve become able to see the deeper thread of things, beyond the noisy surface.

This cannot be said, however, for my coarser nature that is still dominated by the appearances of the outer world, fed only by the physical senses.

What I’m describing is a subtle awakening, of my consciousness, to that which lies deep within my nature. It gives me joy each time I’m able to break through the outer barriers and be touched by this inner essence, which waits patiently for me to attune myself to its existence at the core of my being.

Jeane: This last part or dream is a bit tricky (see parts one and two). You are part of this family that was exiled and speak a different language. You are still trying to figure out how things work in this building.

It feels like the area is a rectangle with a courtyard section, so you can go from one part of this apartment building to another part across the way where things are done differently. It feels like what I am being shown has a lot to do with geometric design.

A young woman is living with her family and wants to go out into the world. There is a man in the other building whom she is somewhat interested in, as well as a woman there she wants to visit. Of course, when she goes into the other building, there is no one around.

She goes up near a top corner of the building, to the apartment of this man that she wants to relate to, yet she is not sure how things work in this world. There is an older couple there. In the process of going to be with this man, she walks out of one room and into another room to take a shower.

She ends up in the shower with the older man and his wife, which she does not really want to do. It feels as though there is something taking advantage of her energy there, and finally she has to move away from them.

There is a bit of confusion as she tries to go back to the man. She has to find out what she can say no to. She is learning that she can say no to what feels like an energy that is taking advantage of her. She feels she can be somewhat closer to the other man and begin to explore what that is about.

Again, it feels more like a beginning here. Sometimes she can be in the building just trying to discover what it looks like. When she goes back to the other section of the building to where her family is, it seems like that is when she is told she will have to do this 30 times before she will learn it.

As I was trying to remember the dream, it felt like I was aware of the rectangular building being like the shape you get when you put a rectangle inside a circle. There is something about these geometric designs….

John: This part of the dream shows that you are fighting to sustain the veil between things. It’s as if there is something on one hand that is different from something else on the other hand. You perceive these levels of separation that exist – there is the older man and then there is the guy you never meet. It is almost like the older man is a distraction to the other guy, which means that a part of you fails to recognize that the guy in front of you is the same as this other guy. We are all the characters in our dreams.

You do not see that, so you tend to reject it. You are trying to keep things distinct as a way to maintain a reference that says this is this and that is that. In other words, there are octaves of things going on. Actually, the only thing you can really say about it is that there are certain things about oneself that one can relate to a little more closely than other things, which seem more foreign and distant.

But that is where the illusion comes in. Those things that seem more foreign and distant aren’t really that way; it’s just that you have not broken through that to recognize them as being the same. Up close they are the same in terms of their vibration. And so for you to not break through this is to be in a condition and a state where you are always struggling for something.

We tend to always see our reality as based somehow upon the environment around us. And when we do, we tend to be thrown around by changes in that environment, i.e., when we have a bad day or we are hit by a chain of events that create circumstances we’d rather not deal with.

So in this part of the dream, you are not able to find that focus inside of you that allows you to see all of it – the whole picture. If you did, you wouldn’t need to jump from side to side looking for something, or feeling out of place. You’d more likely be excitedly embracing what is happening and exploring it.
