Dreamstate-1When we don’t quite get the realization of our dreams, in other words, complete the connection that the images are trying to encourage, we tend to dream the scenario over and over again. Here John finds himself coming upon beautiful ripe berries unexpectedly, yet as he begins to enjoy them, they seem to suddenly not be ripe anymore. This discovery takes the energy out of the initial exuberance. This is the third dream in a row where an abundance has been denied him, and it has something to do with the balance between his inner masculine and feminine energies. Has the understanding been reached? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: First of all, what’s the meaning of something on the left? What’s the meaning where things are just on the left?

Jeane: It’s receptive, feminine.

John: Is it feminine? Is that what it means? Because I keep dreaming left and right, but I don’t really understand left or right.

So in this dream I take a walk from where I’m at with friends, and I don’t recall anything on the walking out. All I could say is that I probably needed to shake something off or something like that, and maybe was in my own daze, or mood, or something.

So there’s nothing memorable as I proceed out on the walk, but on the return something changes. And it changes with me suddenly noticing on the left these huckleberries. The bush is bigger than normal, and the huckleberries are perfectly ripe. And it’s rare to find huckleberries; it just was a shock and surprise. They’re usually in kind of a more isolated setting and whatnot.

And it also seemed that there was nothing to look at on the right, everything was on the left. And then from the huckleberries I went to some other berry that was black, and these berries were almost as big as an avocado or something. They were oversized, really oversized.

Well, when I saw those huckleberries they were all perfectly ripe, and I took and I stopped and had some and they were tremendous, and I was excited and exuberant and couldn’t wait to get back to be able to tell, and show, and share with others what there was to be noted. Who would have guessed?

Now the berries were all berries that turned black and they were all different kind of berries. I mean, whatever it is that you could think of that turns black when it’s ripe, whether they’re olives, or blackberries, or huckleberries or whatever. And, to begin with, the bush would be bigger, the berries would be plentiful, all black, then the berries would be bigger. It went through the phase where the berries would be bigger like almost the size of an avocado or something, elongated – but no flavor, no flavor, which is amazing.

The huckleberries were fabulous, now all of a sudden the flavor was gone. I felt like I needed to not only pay attention as I was walking along seeing all of these different kinds of berries that have supposedly turned back, and now I’m saying “supposedly” because as I’m paying attention the berries aren’t necessarily all black anymore. They’re getting ripe, and there are not as many of them and so I can’t readily sample like I had been sampling. And, like I say, it was all to the left and there was kind of a perception that maybe there was a waterway or something that helped support that being lush over there as opposed to the right side.

So a little bit of what I wrote about it is: when I sampled them I have to wonder did that have an effect in terms of the berries, that I indulged in some fashion? Was there something to that? Actually, I think there may be something to that conceptually, but overall, no, it’s looking at it too narrowly.

What about the excitement to show others an exuberance? Well, yeah, that leads to a fulfillment, that causes something to break through. You get to the bottom and you get something out there and the aliveness then magnifies that kind of condition. But then as I progress back, having indulged a bit and then getting closer to coming back, the urgency and the excitement goes away, the aliveness goes away. In other words, what had been ripe is not ripe, they’re still ripening. You have to look hard to find any that might be edible or ripe. And so you tend to realize that there’s further to go, almost as if something has shifted from that exuberance to something that is a little more stifled.

The meaning is there is so much wonder, pent up exuberance, and energetic excitedness about life when I am not in an imbalanced way with how I feel myself. There is a lot of that. In other words, it’s like when I started the walk out I may have been in my own space a little bit, affected, or in a trance or something, and it’s only when I got turned around and started to come back having gone out there that I realized something different on the left. But when I got back it was like I come back to a different set of conditions.

The dream is also indicating that this tends to go away, in other words, this thing that I experienced, or take a step back when I indulge. Now how does one indulge? You can indulge just by being affected by something that is not quickened, that’s in a stupor or something, and you are affected or infected by it. Now, if I try to rationalize what took place this only takes me backwards.

Here, a real-life scenario – Jeanne being nervous when John drives too fast – is used as an image for a deeper message. Part of what happens as we develop is that we come into contact and connection with energies of higher speeds. That’s a good thing, and is, in fact, what develops us (we don’t). Those speeds need to be adjusted to, and new balances need to be found. Of course, our old speeds and ways of being think that it’s scary, and put up resistance. But we have the ability to handle it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my first dream, I’ve gone to a woman friend of mine who’s a physician, and she has to give a seminar so I’m going to go with her while she gives this presentation to a group of people.

So we drive somewhere and then we arrive there, and it feels like it’s actually outside, and there are some tables sitting there where, you know, where she’ll present. Well, then she realizes that she doesn’t have a pen that works, so I open up my purse and I have a bunch of pens but I have to find one that is the right color that works well.

So finally I do that and I hand it to her. Well then we realize that for some reason the setting we’re in doesn’t work, so we’re going to drive back more towards my home. Well, we start driving. There are other people in the car. And it feels like the trail becomes really narrow and windy alongside a river and we’re driving on it.

And she’s going so slowly I realize that she’s kind of terrified by this, so I offer to drive. Well, I take over and I drive pretty fast along this trail, even though it’s kind of windy and more like a biking or a hiking trail. I suddenly look around and I realize I’m all by myself. The rest of the car and the people that were in the car seem to have disappeared, they’re way behind me.

I guess they didn’t like me going that fast, so I go back along the trail and I find them, and then see if they want me to drive more slowly, or what. And then suddenly we’re just kind of showing up where we need to go, but I realize by that time they are probably going to be closing the office. And I’m looking like we’re close to where my home is; should we give the seminar there, or what should we do?

I’m almost suggesting to her that this time maybe we should just go get a bite to eat and forget the whole thing.

John: The scenario for the dream is this hyper reaction that you have when I’m driving, where you imagine things bipping and bopping out of the blue, and it creates this helter-skelter shattering in your nature that causes you to feel that you have to slow everything way, way, way down in order to keep yourself from losing a balance.

And so the dream you have plays with that, to try to get you to get a different sense over all of that. In a roundabout way, I’ve been trying to get you to get a different sense over all of that, but my sense over something like that has its problems, and its limitations, and the sense that I’m trying to hear in that is not necessarily the sense that you need to hear in that because I have my own little barriers with that mannerism, as well.

In other words, I don’t have the acuity necessarily in a groundedness way to be perhaps going at too great of a pace. In your particular case, you’re needing to recognize that you can go at that pace, that you can speed up at that pace, and that it’s part of a quality of being able to access, through and within yourself, that which needs to come out. In other words, the ability to be at a place on time to give a seminar, to be able to do it while it’s timely, in other words, before the time runs out. In other words, this is an important aspect to a quality of your being.

Now you do not want to recognize this as being true, and that’s why you have interjected in there someone else. But when you catch up with this quality of your being, you find out that there is no other kind of accommodation that you’re needing to make in order for this to occur, that this is all part of you.

Sometimes our dreams provide a symbolic snapshot of what our internal or external struggles are about. Other times, as in this example from Jeane, our dreams seek to lead us to understanding or connection. In this image, Jeane is in line to get a dance partner who will be a stranger to her, and she is thinking about how to time it to land on her preferred one. But if we trust the universe, and ultimately we must, it will make the right internal connections for us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My first dream takes place in a bar. It’s like I’m sitting and looking – there’s a dance area that’s next to a pool table, and I’m sitting actually a little distance from that, kind of opposite where the head of the table would be, kind of studying things.

People line up around one side of the pool table and then as they come to the other side they get a dance partner, and then they dance until they’ve gone to the end of the pool table, and then they get in the line again.

Well, your partner is determined by where the line has moved when you reach the dance floor. And I’m studying out this whole system and I realize that of all the people that I see waiting to kind of pick up a dance partner, there’s only one man in the line that I might actually think it was okay to dance with.

And so like how would you actually figure that out? How can you get your timing right? Because I’m not sure I’d really want to dance with any of the other characters I’m seeing around the dance table or the dance floor. That’s the first dream.

John: What you’re doing is you’re looking to find a connective focus and flow that is something that you’re able to let yourself go into. Which means that you’re experiencing the oddity and awkwardness of activities, per se, because you’re sensing that there is something missing in terms of how you are in terms of your ordinary connective focus and attention – because you are recognizing how it is that that touches you in some specific way inside.

And so because you have a sensation sense over how it is that something needs to be, in terms of you having an overall well being in terms of it, this is like recognizing from somewhere deeper within a magnetic aliveness that is pulling you to something more real.

Because you don’t know what that something more real is, your mentalness or synaptic nature is inclined to look at the activity that is going around and around and attempt to factor into that activity that which would give it a greater meaningfulness.

In other words, you’re experiencing something that is trying to pull you into a greater realness, but the best you can do to denote that in the dream image is to take that back in terms of the senses, of your senses, of the situation, of the image, and your mindfulness in terms of what you’re able to perceive and think about that, and attempt to make it come across and seem better so that it corresponds to that which is attempting to pull you into a greater state of meaningfulness, of realness.

And this is a realness that you can’t put your finger on, per se, that is in motion inside of you, that then affects your attention and the way you conduct yourself in the outer, and so your dream has created this perspective, has created a storyline, that is symbolic to this process of unfoldment – even though the storyline dream that you portray, as if that’s real, it is instead depicting something else that is out of reach, and out of touch, and unknown to you that is having an effect upon the situation to which your mind, not knowing, and even in your sleep not knowing what that is, puts together this image, this dream image.
