We likely all know that moment when we are doing something really well, doing it naturally and with just-as-needed effort and timing, and then we become conscious of that state of our process and the whole moment is lost – along with our great skill. Well, this dream points out that we can do exactly that same thing in our spiritual journey: as we seek to be in the flow of energies, with our natural grace, it is that moment of the personal thought or idea that will completely disconnect us. But we can learn to separate ourselves less and less. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So it feels like I work in some kind of a medical center, and you work there, too. But the problem I have is that everything in this medical center is always shifting, and people, and everything you have around you, is represented by these little dots, or little globs, round globs.

Well, the problem is, these globs keep shifting randomly and if three of them are lined up, then everything is fine, you can be working fine, but if a fourth one lines up it wipes out all the others and whatever you’re doing has to start over. It’s very hard to get any work done.

Well, I finally decide that one of the ways around this is I’ve gone and I’ve started studying some Qi Gong with a Qi Gong master who lives down the street. And then I figure out what’s going to help all this is if I can get you to come and take the Qi Gong classes, too. If you’re there, and you’re taking the classes, then for some reason this is going to help fix this alignment problem.

And I take you down to meet with him, but I know this is going to be a real challenge because, while you’re very athletic, learning Qi Gong, or any kind of martial art, is a lot like following dance moves and that’s not your strong suit. So I mention this to him because I don’t want you to get clobbered by any of his students that are over enthusiastic. So we kind of decide what time you can go down there and start learning, and it’s probably better to be in the back row while you’re learning. I think that was when the alarm went off.

John: The first three parts, were something aligned, or something is kind of coming into cohesion, that is the phase in which you are catching up with, instantaneously, as an in-the-moment part of the whole quality of your nature, what it is that is meant to come through you, or meant to be experienced, or you’re meant to feel as a flow in the whole. The fourth part…

Jeane: I just remembered it. In the middle was this dream where it’s like people are trying to capture, or shoot me, and I kind of run away from them by climbing up in these great big huge trees and flying around the tree, or trying to do something where I can stop them, or get them wrapped, or tied up.

John: What you’re doing in that dream, with that part that you call the middle, is what you do as the fourth step in the first dream, and that is you have your understanding, or idea, about what it’s about, and that idea, in terms of what it’s about, is taking what you’re experiencing in a overall way. It’s taking it into some sort of relative context.

In other words, the way that you’re having to go up a tree or whatever the heck it is to escape something, that’s your idea of what is going on, how to relate to that. That’s making it relative. The fourth thing that you come up with, in terms of something that is just hitting you in the present, it’s a kind of completion, but it’s a completion in a relative sense. You don’t want that kind of completion. Where it might have been important at one point in time to understand what was relative in the situation, now that gets in the way because you’re in the absolute of something that is in a moment flux, felt in the bones, that’s flowing through you. You’re not into what that is about.

The fourth is an indulgence. The three are a flow that comes in. The three things are a flow that’s coming in that’s like a guidance, or inner awakening. You’re receptive to those three coming in. The fourth is where you’re trying to pay attention, now, as if you have a right to know what’s going on – and you’re never going to get that to align. In other words, the three are a naturalness, that’s part of what’s meant to be, in terms of yourself, as part of the whole. And the fourth, the fourth is your conclusion about all of that.

Now, ordinarily, in one phase of dreaming, you have the one, two, and three and then the four, which is the completion. This is not a completion, anymore. This is something that has to be dropped as a completion. You just need to keep the in-the-moment stuff in a surrendered, accepting, empty way, not have to contend, not have to take and act like you have a responsibility to have to come to some sort of accord.

And the same thing is true in the other middle dream, where something is coming at you, something is being experienced as coming into your nature, or is affecting your nature, and you are seeing yourself yet in a separateness there and so you’re trying to elude, or escape, that from happening.

And, instead, what you’re to do is to go with what is unfolding there. It is not something that is harmful. It is part of your overall makeup. If you go with that, if you’re okay with that, if you can accept that, if you can surrender to that then you’re not trying to establish some sort of reflective, relative condition.

That reflective relative condition is your idea of how you cope with this other, as if you have to cope with this other. If you’re in the whole all of that’s going to be there. It’s going to be like that. It’s not for you to go deciphering it, and distinguishing it, in some sort of separate capacity because when you do that, then you shut yourself down. You’re not able to be part of the whole.

That’s a good dream. It’s also a dream showing you what you’re struggling with in order to just let something flow. The nature that a human being has to try to find an end result there, or conclusion, a completion or something, when you attempt to do that, that’s when you make it relative. They key is to leave it in the flux of the moment, unfolding and intangible.

im098agesThis imagery continues the dream conversation (see Defining How It Is) because sometimes in the course of a night of dreaming the images begin by presenting the case, or the situation, that we are dealing with. Subsequent imagery, which may seem like completely separate dreams, will often further what has been established and then allow a look at the issue from different angles. In this way, we are offered an unbiased view that can allow us to better understand where we are.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: And then it feels like I have a dream where I have to go to an event at my niece’s house. For this event, I need an outfit that will be kind of interchangeable. In other words, I need to be able to change from something that I wear for dinner to something I wear outside, to maybe something I wear swimming. And I go to the store and I actually find this outfit that’s kind of green with black polka dots on it. And it has a skirt and a top, and then maybe a shorter skirt and a bathing suit that all match. So I’ve taken it over to show it to her; so this would allow me to change rapidly for each function.

At the same time, I want to be able during this time to have dinner with her daughter and new husband, who I know are working a lot of hours, but then I find that they are coming and spending weekends at the mother’s house because they see it’s easier to eat there. So that means that I should be able to get together with them, too.

Having worked all that out, I seem to go back to see how the experiment in the first dream is working and realize that, at this point in time, it’s not working that well, that having shaved one person’s beard and making the other person do things they are not used to, is not flowing well right now, at this point. And that maybe I need to let them continue with their traditions for a while longer.

John: This is something that has to be found, as a naturalness, as an understanding, as a graciousness, in which there is no design based upon projection. Everyone sees life as something in which you have to put on a particular quality or attire in order to get things to happen.

Like you notice how that is. That it’s easier if you accommodate a certain persona with regards to getting together with your niece’s daughter and husband and whatnot. In other words, so that you wouldn’t be standing out as someone peculiar and separate from how they needed to appreciate life. You’re seeing yourself as having a greater fluidity by having made this kind of adjustment, in terms of yourself, and so you’re inclined to think that that was an adjustment that speeded things along.

So you realize that then, when you take and you approach something that has fostered its own design, like the guy from Niger, following an evolvement or type of tariqa, so to speak, where he did what he did in accordance with an established tradition, and the other had its established tradition, that this sort of thing worked. And when each of those was taken out of their recognized established tradition, they had problems in terms of coping.

So, you’re sitting thinking, “oh, well, perhaps I should just let them do what they do best in terms of their mannerism.” But deep down you know that that also blocks something from happening. In other words, Niger is Niger, and a bearded approach is a bearded approach, and beyond what is able to happen with that quality or mannerism is something even more. But they cannot function without their filter.

So what your dream is doing is your dream is taking a situation, or a scenario, and plopping you into that scenario and pointing out that how it is that you are in that scenario functions according to certain prescribed guidelines. You still see yourself having to subordinate yourself to those specific and particular guidelines.

universe-1920-2If we look at the bigger picture processes of the universe, it seems that we are in an evolving state or, said another way, that we are part of something that is “heading somewhere.” This can be evidenced by the uncountable aspects of life that show signs of a refinement process, i.e., they’re not finished but are still improving. So perhaps it makes perfect sense that one role of a human life in service to something greater is to be assisting that refinement process.

Jeane: Well I just remember one scene out of my last dream. In that scene, it’s like I have a brother who’s somewhat crazy and off medication. I’m with somebody else and I feel like they can’t really approach him because they’re going to disturb him.

So I’ve gone over to talk to him and I realize that he’s seeing ghosts. So I try to get him to focus on me so that he’s not focused on seeing the ghost. And I can ask him if he’s seeing ghosts because, you know, to acknowledge that something is causing him to freak out a bit. I’m trying to kind of get his attention on me so I can calm him down. And that’s all I really remember from my dreams.

John: What’s very interesting about this is you’re working with the image of how a person can be in life in a merged way. The idea of a student/teacher relationship from the standpoint of something that advances in a mystical, merged way is one of devotion. And, in the devotion, you become like the teacher who mirrors the connection to the wholeness, in which everything is intertwined in a state of wholeness.

So in the dream, you don’t look at the detail because you don’t dream in the masculine, so you just look at what it’s like to be in a state where things are able to be in a natural flow.

The theme of the dreaming had to do with flow, or evolvement. Or, as you have added in terms of the note or the dream, the quality of being in a naturalness in which everything is taken in as a wholeness.

In your dream, you start off in which the scenario in front of you is out of balance and needs alignment. In other words, you’re dealing with the quality in which there are reactions and a lack of cohesion because what is experienced is in discord, or is an illusion, to what there is that is plausible to be experienced in the environment. And you see this condition as a person that is caught up in seeing ghosts, and you’re using that allegorically to represent a state of imagination and illusion that keeps the person from being real in the naturalness of life.

And so you then do what the teacher attempts to do to the students, in regards to the devotional path, in which the teacher acts as the wayfarer to linking and intertwining to the divine. You step into the shoes of something like that, in terms of the divinity inside of yourself, and seek to have the attention placed upon this inner wholeness. When you see that there’s something misaligned and acting up, you naturally know how to try to pull that focus of attention to a vibration that includes all that there is in a naturalness in life or, to put it another way, into a merged essence.

You’re just portraying, in a very simple way, how things are meant to be, as opposed to jumping all over the place in some sort of illusory way. It’s an interesting way of presenting the theme.
