Angelic_moversWe all know that the moon can affect us, whether it is in terms of our mental, emotional, or physical state. Now, of course, it affects the plants and animals as well, but we can choose to be conscious of exactly what the effects are. And it is the same for sun spots. And it is the same for all astrological influences. We may understand these things because there is a long history and record of the way these celestial objects affect us, but in truth we can understand them directly, through our own faculties – it’s just a matter of training our systems. It’s not magic, or the capability of “special” people, it’s an aspect of our design that we have left dormant – but can awaken at any time.

John: So to talk about my meditation dream is often like trying to tell a new guy about what is going on. And, to do so, I communicate in a non-reflective way. In other words, for it to be non-reflective means that it has to be relatable to the soul, in a oneness, beyond current sense awareness. Or, otherwise, how do you relate, to someone, what is going on?

Because you can’t just define the outer because that’s just an understanding, that’s not describing, or telling a person, what is really going on. So, if what I say is definable, in some outer-awareness sense, then it is something that is grasped by the sense-oriented mind – and it is not an all-pervasive knowingness, and, therefore, the heart is left askew.

A stillness can be so deep within that my overall beingness can’t function in outer way anymore. So now this is the opposite. I’m noticing this other because I’m noticing that there is such a letting go. For example, I saw myself trying to turn off a manmade light in the outer, this being a light that reaches the physical senses. And what I found was that I was unable to bring my beingness into manifestation to turn off such a light.

Yet I am aware, however, the hopeless condition of not being able, in terms of physical nature as an outer stupor, not able to contend with it because I’m in such a deep inner space. And then, all of a sudden, that gap is bridged when I’m kissed on the cheek from a place within that permeates from the here to the beyond.

The significance: to think that I can bring this inner abiding beingness to where it touches vibrations directly goes beyond the physical state. The result is a frustration that is a trying to penetrate a bifurcated outer way, with an all-pervading inner overallness. In other words, projecting that way, which is an outward trying to incorporate a letting-go stillness, and yet it’s an inner stillness. It’s the absorbing of things and putting everything in the heart. That is what is the unexplainable mystery to the physical senses. Otherwise the physical senses are just there, trying to do what they do.

So then I go through various placements in which you could draw a conclusion in relationship to your senses, which you would perceive with your senses, and whether you still are having to sort out in that regard.

So, in this dream, I am in a large hall. There are windows along the right side. I have a ticket, in the hall, that seems somewhere near the back on the right side. But when I pause to appreciate where I find myself at, in the pausing I seem to see my whereabouts as near a window. And I’m excited about that; kind of desirable to sit near a window. 

And, in this dream, like I say, it’s exhilarating. And I’m excited because even though I am near the window, on the right side, I feel that my connection isn’t limited in terms of a vision, or a way of being, that goes from the very back to the front.

So, in describing where I’m at, I’m in the back row, in which there are just three seats, and then the row in front extends longer in front of where I’m at, and there’s just three seats behind that. And my seat is along the aisle there. I’m excited about placement, because I’m not affected at all in terms of my connection to the front, even though it’s not a complete row, behind a row which is much longer.

And, in this dream, first of all, I’m just in this natural state of knowingness, but then I am shown that you could look at it in its nuances if you wanted to. And in looking at it in its nuances, where one could react, or be shocked or something, by how far back it was, because that wasn’t the sensation because my connection was fine. I remember walking down the aisle from the front and was surprised at how far I had to walk to get to this back, back seat. Other than that extended image of coming down to the last row, far from the front, the sensation I had was as being wonderfully placed in terms of my orientation, in regards to both the window and my sight.

And, of course, if you look at it rationally, if I was off to one side there would have been heads in front of me. But it didn’t affect the sight, in terms of how the sight needed to be – apparently, in terms of a letting-go-ness within. Or, as the meaning goes, there are no inner/outer limitations, no time and space concerns for a heart able to truly let go and take in all there is – from however and wherever one is positioned. You just hold it all. You contain it all; it’s not a conditional thing.

1000If we want to understand how a machine works, we can take it apart and see what makes it go. But what do we do if we want to understand living things – things we can’t take apart?  Well, we have to connect to them, in the same way that a shaman or medicine man in the past learned to connect to the healing essences of plants. And if we want to connect to something energetically, we have to do it from the essence in us to the essence in it, which means energy to energy. But, of course, we have to become quiet enough in ourselves to receive and translate that communication.

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself holding off from responding to an issue in which there is an invoking of an outer response. In other words, it’s an outer trying to get my attention, and so I’m holding off responding to it. And I hold off because I know, deep inside, that the response cannot be an in-sync reply. In other words, you can’t respond to the outer: reflections cannot meet reflections.

So I hold back, and do not reciprocate outwardly, because there’s something inside of me – and I consider it like the soul or something – which is refusing to move. It wants to just stay still. It won’t buy into this outer that is trying to grab my attention.

So I find myself surrendered to the inner stillness. In other words, I just can’t bite; that motion just doesn’t grab me. And so what does that mean? Does it mean that the outer vibrations are somehow or another absorbed by the stillness, or into the heart? And that my mind, that normally buys into the outer reflections, just cannot do it? In other words, there’s something that has gotten more meaningful, in terms of staying still with a more all-consuming heartfulness.

So that causes me to wonder: what is this stillness? And I come to ponder it as relating to the plane of the soul, which is where surrender and nonbeing come together, and where everything is absorbed. The outer is absorbed by this encompassing heart, or something.

In other words, the reflections aren’t separate. The reflections can all be taken within. And so, in other words, there’s always going to be reflections, but the reflections, you don’t take them with you in bizarreness, the reflections stay as manifestation still, in terms of the degree to which something has to act out vibrationally, with images.

And you’re always noting the degree of true stillness by looking at the greater teacher of the outer, that is manifestation, but you don’t try to change the outer in order to get to the inner. Such a mindset, in which the outer vibratoriness and corresponding images are something that you can bring with you into the plane of the soul, it just isn’t so because they are reflections. They veil the heart from the inner. They vie for the heart.

So what happened is, in my meditation dream, I was able to not reciprocally react because I was on the plane of the universal soul where stillness is natural. Now the alternative to that, of course, is an outer reflective in which the senses portray the reflective physical and the result, then, of something like that is kind of an ego orientation floundering as manifestation. In other words, putting out the vibrations and the images because vibrations and images are correlated. Or, to put it another way, manifestation exists as an outer reflection in which vibrations correspond to created images.

And so this has caused me to notice a psychic illusion. To visualize, within, an outer future unfoldment involves the taking of a vibratory energetic from the stillness into physical manifestation, and doing it this time in which you stop time, as if irrelevant. In other words, manifestation is a conditional reflection involving time and vibration which, densed down, becomes physical space.

So psychic inflections are a deviation in one of two ways in terms of the stillness. They are a deviation in that you can have a psychic quality in which you transcend time, so that you can come to see things backwards and forwards, and up and about, that’s a psychic trait. Or you can take and you could still be buying into time, but you can get rid of vibrations, in which case if you can get rid of the vibrations that then manifest into something physical because they constellate as something dense in the outer, if you can get rid of the vibrations, you know that have their way of having to live something through in a reflective denseness, then you can do things like transport or move objects. In other words, you can transcend space. So psychic abilities have to do with playing on the edges of time and space, that are important as foundational points to a vibrational imaged manifestation.

And so what has happened is it’s causing me to denote the subtler levels of vibration in relationship to looking at the stillness, in terms of looking at the stillness, in terms of the components that come out, that are the reflective manifestation. Thus you hold the stillness, and then the manifestation reflects differently. It’s just how it is.

It reflects to the degree to which it still imparts that which still has to be lived, and it still has to be imaged. It still is something that you’re not quite fully able to let go of. It still reflects that. You don’t come to the stillness by playing with the reflective outer.

So that’s an important distinction, and I can see how this can happen, in terms of a perception, because the out-breath looks like you’re bringing something down into it, and so, as an out-breath it’s like, you know, there’s a momentum and whatnot. It’s easy to catch this as something that is meant to impact the outer – but, no, it’s from the inner. That other creates a diversity where there is the seeing and hearing of things that are unfolding, but the unfoldment is reflectively oriented to the inner awakening.

touchBridging the inner with the outer, or the higher with the lower, is the work of a spiritual life. We can feel when we make those connections, and also feel when we lose them again. Our systems know, in the same way as these dreams give insight to the dreamer about this struggle. Fundamentally, we need to shift our focus from thinking the outer world is what is important, to understanding that it is inner guidance that should lead us through the outer world. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I still seem to be stuck in this pattern of having one repetitious dream.

So, in this case, it was like before I went to bed last night, I had gone to my computer and I downloaded some audio and videotapes. And I’m not used to quite how the download works on the computer yet. I’m not sure how I play these things or how they work yet.

So I felt like I kept dreaming about that. I would dream that I was doing the download and some of the tapes downloaded just right, and other tapes seemed to download the middle part and not the beginning and end part. And some tapes downloaded completely.

And I’m trying to figure out how to rectify that so that all the tapes download completely, and that I know how and where to play them. And so it felt like I just had repetitious dreams about that whenever I was dreaming.

John: What you’re trying to do is you’re trying to connect the inner and the outer. And that was the theme of the dreaming: that you’re haywire in the outer if you don’t recognize the inner connectivity of yourself, if you don’t reach that point within that is the body of light, or however you want to describe that, that is outside of the outer reflective condition of yourself.

So, what you were doing is you had this activity that symbolized the attempt to do something like this. In other words, using an Internet process, you’re trying to take and create the medium by which you downloaded from one way of something being, into another way that would be more utilizable.

Something that then could function more tangibly. And it’s exactly what I dealt with, as well. The only difference is that is I saw myself in the linkage and connection of an inner, and its corresponding reflective outer. And then saw what happens when you lose that and find yourself lost again. And that’s what I dreamt. And I had two dreams that did that, each in their own way.

And the first one is in the meditation, and what I wake up dreaming about is the idea of receiving multiple awards for what turns out—which means two different awards—which turns out to be the same end result.

I noticed that there are those who feel that this shouldn’t happen. However, from my position and perspective of life, well, this makes complete sense in both areas in my being. That which I am, as a being, is honored and is seen as being significant, simultaneously, in both worlds. And of course, both worlds are the inner and the outer.

It is through the sensation level that I develop a glimpse between the two areas. And this time, the whole thing is more of the connection of inner/outer, and it’s humorous because it’s like a joke between the inner and the outer, as if they come together as one—and that one is one’s true and whole self.

So the significance of this is I am of the opinion that in receiving an award for meritorious achievement in the outer, that because we live in an inner and outer vibratory universe, that this is a setup in which it is possible to become aware upon the inner level, as well.

In other words, normally, you just see this sort of thing happening in the outer. You don’t realize that whatever you achieve, or accomplish, or do, or what transpires in the outer, has also taken place simultaneously on the inner, except the outer is reflective.

The reason for why an award on both levels is possible to know is because consciousness flows from inner into outer. When we awaken, we realize and see that. What this means is the reflective outer that is ordinarily veiled off from the inner flow, is able to consciously correspond and experience the connectivity as a oneness.

In this dream, I’m seated in a room with others who are able to correlate consciously the inner with its reflective outer. A person comes in the door—comes from the outer into this inner—where I’m seated along with others. And in coming in, he proceeds to make a huge commotion, as if, you know, he’s righteous about his right to be there or something.

And I realize this process included a part of himself that was already there, or the corresponding higher inner self. And here he’s tried to come in to connect with that, with the outer, that has been reflected. And a person from up front, that I don’t see all the way to the front because I’m seated kind of more towards the middle, steps forward and expeditiously evicts this guy.

And then the dream shifts and I’m outside of this room or in another scenario in the outer, I see a bunch of basketballs. Well, about 20 of them, all in a pile or roll about, that seem to have been just dispersed. And I pick up one of them, to examine, and throw it back into the general pile with the other balls.

The meaning of it is, to lose what connects the inner flow with the outer reflection, which is a connectiveness that is lost when the outer reflection is amiss, is what is going on in this dream. In other words, I get carried away, or that part gets carried away coming in, and so then it loses the continuity with the inner.

In the first dream, the outer reflection goes off on a tangent and causes a commotion that wouldn’t have happened if you were synchronized connectively with the corresponding inner consciousness. The lower self that isn’t connected to the higher self consciously loses the natural graciousness that exists.

When this connection is broken, the inner and outer remain veiled from each other, as the outer parts go into the collective of life, which again is all reflective. That’s the image of a bunch of bouncing balls that have no real focus anymore, is the symbolized portrayal of this effect.
