Adam-and-Eve-twinsFinding true energetic balance in oneself is a key to being able to access and hold the greater depths, or spaces, within. In this dream, Jeane’s resistance to a full acceptance of her inner masculine sets up a violent confrontation. Yet it’s not really a nightmare, but it does reveal what is preventing Jeane on her journey to Wholeness. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: What I remember of my first dream is, it felt like it takes place out on the hillside. It’s almost like people, they’re not really staying in their homes. They’re staying out here.

There’s supposed to be some kind of supervision when there are couples, but it almost feels like in the couples, they’re a danger to each other in a way, or actually within the couple – like the man might be a danger to the woman. And there are people that are supposed to make sure that they keep things safe.

I’m more of an observer in this, I think. It’s almost like you feel like some of the men are trying to kill the women, their wives actually. And so they’ve been somewhat separated. But on the hillside, people have to sometimes come together to help each other, and I’m kind of observing this.

Well, in all of this coming together, suddenly one man stabs the woman to death, but actually says that she fell on the knife, or something like that, like it was an accident; he didn’t mean it to happen, and he kind of gets away with it.

I’m kind of trying to argue the other side, like I don’t trust this, so I’m trying to keep everybody under observation or something, in all of this running around that goes on.

That’s about all I really remember from that dream. I’m upset that anyone even believed him, but they seemed to. It’s like he could get away with it.

John: What you are describing is a very odd way of describing it, but you’re looking at an overall condition, and the overall condition you look at is a setting that is like on a slippery slope, in which the traits that you carry have a crack or a break in them. They’re not held together consistently, and the crack or the break that they have in them creates a problem in terms of holding something together.

In other words, there’s wounding that happens when the masculine energy actually violates the feminine energy of overallness. And it’s hard to keep the overallness together, because it’s on the slippery slope. And you’re just looking at a particular set setting on the slippery slope, and there’s all of this stuff going on that is failing to hold a stableness and that there is kind of an attitude you have in that you feel that what is taking place, the result of it, is not being properly held accountable. It is getting away with it.

What you’re basically describing is a set condition upon which you carry yourself, in which there is this confused gap that isn’t able to sustain itself with a focus.

The way we were dreaming last night, I was looking at how I carry a particular characteristic in terms of how I go about doing things. I carry this particular characteristic or trait in my nature. Left to my own devices I actually shut down to a certain degree with this particular trait. I’m not as open as often times people are when I meet them. I hold a certain rigidity and I often judge myself in terms of this rigidity because I have to then come out of this rigidity in order to relate to them.

This set quality upon which one carries themselves is kind of something that one takes on in terms of being part of, and in, a dense world. It’s the trait that you develop when you learn to chop wood and carry water, so to speak, or get grounded and rooted in life.

So what you’re doing is, you’re seeing where, in the overallness that you’re carrying, in terms of yourself, you have this area in which you leak energy, in which you do not hold that characteristic and that trait and, therefore, you don’t hold your full presence like you could be holding your full presence.

This dream is explaining to you, or showing you, how it is that you dissipate energy, in terms of attitude, or reactivity, or anger, or frustration. It’s interesting, as I hear this dream, what I find interesting about it is you have to carry a real expansive nature because you are meant to be more of a container, and you’re meant to be more subjective in terms of how you’re able to appreciate, feel, and see things. Your seeing being subjective, not objective,

And yet this dream is telling you that your subjective clarity is somewhat biased because there is a component of yourself, the blackboard side of yourself that is rooted in life with the subjective clarity to things, that the degree to which you are able to, in your overallness, take into account what is going on, is biased or affected to a certain degree, by a mannerism that you still carry toward what is going on that isn’t properly and completely linked yet, in terms of your masculine and feminine side.

And that what you’re doing to keep this from coming together, is you’re still holding out some sort of judgment in terms of what is fair or unfair, or appropriate or inappropriate, in terms of how something should be mediated, meaning that what you see, you feel that the standards aren’t right in terms of what the masculine can get away with.

And this bothers you, and because this bothers you, this will then affect your sense of a natural knowingness because it will act as a filter to keep you from getting the information more purely from your subjective side of yourself.

See how that worked? That’s quite a quality catching up with how you carry yourself, so that you can take and know things. And when you carry something that’s a little misaligned, it keeps you from being able to get complete and proper unbiased readout – in your overallness.

Jeane: It feels like I spent a lot of the night struggling with this dream. I’m in a building and the floor is a sphere, which means that I’ll slide down the sides if I go too far. I don’t travel too far in any direction before I come back.

We’ve been given a container that we can use to catch something that we drink. The problem is, I’m convinced the container is the wrong size – it’s either too narrow or maybe it’s too short.  

I’m sure they should have given us another size because these containers just aren’t appropriate for catching whatever it is we need to catch as we slide down the side of the sphere.

John: The condition you’re describing is that you’re on a slippery slope. Yet you have a fallback that you can depend on, or seek the aid of, in this idea of a container to catch rainwater (refreshment or renewal). In other words, it’s something of sustenance….

Jeane: I think it was coffee, not rainwater.

John: Whatever the drink is, it’s supposed to make everything better. What you’re really doing is describing your condition as you know it to be in the outer (a slippery slope), but with the realization that there’s something you can turn to, or reach for, that provides a type of relief.

So the dream is zooming in on your current state of affairs, but there’s a note in your nature that seeks to make it workable. You’re constantly looking at this note, or quality, or vibration, though you have some doubts whether it’s tuned quite right, i.e., the size of the container isn’t appropriate for the job.

In your opinion there’s some alignment that needs to occur. In any event, even if it’s not quite right, you know it’s useful on the slippery slope. You do have this bit of help as you struggle, as imperfect as it is.

It’s an interesting dream in that it’s attempting to show you that you’re experiencing something on an inner level that can make a difference in your outer conditions. Still, your doubts show that something more is needed. You haven’t taken into account all that this inner note can do in terms of holding its energetic in some sweeping way.

You’re slipping and sliding, not sure how this note is meant to make the difference, or not convinced that it can make the difference.

It’s a difficult dream, because there’s an awkwardness to it, a sloppiness. A lot of our dreams lately have this feeling. It’s almost as if we’re in the Twilight Zone now.
