Posts Tagged ‘deeper inner levels’

John: We’re continuing the conversation about your dream yesterday, The Adventure. The imagery ends with you about to begin a chase scene, taking with you what you found in the hidden rooms and hidden boxes – things you will need for the journey.

And this dream opens up three levels of information, and on these other levels you can’t reduce what you find there back to the mundane. In other words, having followed the thread from the beginning of the dream, you’ve developed something deeper, and then reached a point where you become entwined with the inner space itself.

However, the process that you’re in – the insight you are accessing – isn’t something that’s meant to be obvious or apparent or understandable to anyone who can pop their head in and try to understand it.

In fact, they probably have no right to understand it because they don’t have it in them to view life in such a way, so all it will do is confuse them, and create more complexities and problems. They might not be able to handle the energetics of it – they’ll be overwhelmed.

And when someone gets overwhelmed by energetics, the tendency is to create a stigma that gets in the way, that puts a barrier in place that doesn’t need to be there. These come in the form of judgment, expectation, attitude, or mood, and that’s just the sort of thing that can haunt a person in the way of a chase, where things pop their heads up.

However none of that will occur if you’re able to hold a hiddenness, because your understanding of things is transcending three levels.

First we see the level of the path, or thread, in terms of the rollercoaster. Here, a part of you recognizes that as too much, so you work around that in a gentler way. This accesses the second level, where you take responsibility for gathering up certain things that are useful, or necessary, or that need to be held onto to facilitate the whole process.

Then you realize that there’s an even deeper level, found in the second set of boxes, and this is where the heads pop in to get a glimpse of what it’s all about. But at this level it no longer has to do with what you’re maintaining, or what’s unfolding that’s literally described, it’s about something that you’re intertwined with – the effect comes to you but also from you – and this you must do in a hiddenness.

We’re all linked to all of these levels naturally, but we need to be a certain way in ourselves to access them. So you are having an effect, just by “catching up” energetically with the space you’re in.

At the third level, you strip away that outer appearance and reach a type of connection that’s… well, the only way to describe it is to say it’s hidden and intertwined but nothing can really be known about it in language, so to speak, because you’re working with something that’s in a hiddenness itself. Yet you know that you’re in the hiddenness.

Only others who are in the hiddenness can see you in the hiddenness. You can try as much as you like to try to tell others about the hiddenness, but they won’t really get it. They might be amazed, but they’ll also try to define it and pigeonhole it through the details. The only way for them to understand it is to bring it down a level to where they are. But once you do that, the true essence of it is lost.

The jewelry that you gathered up is actually a lower-level way of saying that you have found a deeper value at a higher level. The jewelry is a lower-level trace of a higher-level connection that you have intertwined with. It’s almost a cellular connection, in a way.

In other words, it’s outside of matter, as we know it. It’s a space and you’re affecting things in it. Said another way, you’re approaching the epicenter of Creation as a space.

Jeane: I wasn’t able to pull much from this dream, I only have an impression of it.

It seemed to involve an amusement ride – like a roller coaster – but it was indoors. I wasn’t very willing to take a ride, because it had that section that turns you upside down.

That’s the first impression.

Then I had a dream that involves several people and we’re all fairly young. It’s a chase or adventure where we’re running somewhere. Then a few of us are selected and we’re able to go up into a hidden area.

We have a certain amount of time to go through some boxes and pick out some things. In this case it happens to be jewelry that we can wear and it’s from a specific country – silver and garnets.

We have to choose the pieces we can wear and leave the ones we can’t. My niece is with us and I wonder whether I should put on the heart-shaped one, but it doesn’t seem right. Then my niece puts on one earring and I put on the other and we’ll wear those.

Next the chase begins. The dream then changes slightly. I’m with a young boy and we’re told we should go up into a certain area and that we have to do so very quickly. There we find the hidden boxes and this time they have to do with Japan…

John: So right off the bat you’re dealing with multiple levels, which is becoming more common in our dreaming.

To begin with, the first image of the roller coaster is like looking at a path, or following a path. In this particular instance you looked at it, but you didn’t want to experience the part that loops you upside down and around. You basically just said no to that.

Okay, then what happens?

Jeane: Well, we went into a secret room and there were hidden boxes. We could select things to take out and the first boxes had to do with a certain type of jewelry.

In the second case it was objects from Japan, and other people kept popping their heads into the room and we had to pop their heads back down because we didn’t want them to see the objects because next there was going to be a chase.

John: Yes, even though you might not realize it, you’re still working with the first part of the dream (the roller coaster) – you’re just working on another level of it.

In other words, the first part of the dream has the image of the roller coaster, which is something that can whip you around and turn you upside down. It can be very wrenching. So you said no to that, and the dream shifted to a different level that takes a gentler approach.

You take the gentler approach in order to hold, or to maintain, something, rather that wrenching it apart. The roller coaster begins a vibrational thread, and the scenario with the jewelry is another aspect of that thread.

As I listen, you’re describing what you’re doing to try to hold something together in relationship to a quality of that thread. And what happens? You are able to find things of value (by opening the hidden boxes).

So then, you must protect these valuable things, or defend them from attack?

Jeane: No, I don’t think they’ll be attacked, but I have the sense that these are objects that we’ll need when we take off and are chased. They’re going to help with where we’re going, and we don’t want other people to catch up with them.

In the case of the objects from Japan, we don’t want other people to see what we’ve got. People keep popping their strange little round heads up into the space, and we’ve got push them back down and then select something really fast and get on our way.

It’s an adventure and we’re going to have certain tools that can help us on our way. But we don’t want everyone else to see what we’ve got.

Tomorrow we’ll see how this adventure turns out…

John: I’m not sure I’m actually able to describe my dream from last night. I think it’s because I didn’t pull out the details and images clearly enough, and just kind of settled into the feeling of it.

It’s almost like I was meditating before I went to bed, because I was in a kind of inner state. The fact that I didn’t pull it out put me into a sense of malaise, even though I was able to denote that I was accepting of a place, or a space, while some other part of me knew that even that had a limitation to it.

So, I can say that the dream echoed the energetic way that I was carrying myself with a kind of connection to the heart. In other words, my way of holding on to something can be felt in the heart, but it’s still an in-between state – I can still recognize that it’s an abstraction representing something even greater.

What happens is that I’m rationalizing that I can hold this inner space, and even my mind is somewhat quieted from connecting to other vibrations that are denser and could throw me around or send me off on a tangent.

However, I could still understand that the vibration I was holding onto has something else to it – what I see is still limited. For me to experience the more of it would require something else I’m clinging to, to fall away.

Said another way, within the vibration is recognition that I have no right to embody it fully because that would actually create a separation. There is still an aspect that stands in the way of an inner nothingness. That aspect seems imperceptible but is, as far as I’m able to tell at this point, something that’s an inner magnetic.

What I’m describing is the reason why I didn’t get knocked around by this aspect as I usually might have been – in which case the dream could have run off on some deviation or detour like we’ve been talking about. Some part of me knew that the space I was holding was subtly better than what it would have been if I’d reacted in my normal way.

It also shows I was as conflicted by this feeling, as I sometimes can be. Of course I can’t stay in a state of contentment with it because nothing on this side of existence is content for very long. I’m able to notice that when a person is content, they become lazy and have a tendency to rationalize that it’s okay.

So it’s a subtle way of just feeling the energetics. The dream, however, or the vibration to the dream, touched enough that it created a subtle mocking of the space I was accepting. That caused a slight uneasiness in knowing that there was something more and that I was limiting myself from reaching it.

Consequently, I did not fully accept the vibrational limitation. If I had, I would have been able to pull out the dream imagery that was reaching further into something else. As you peel away those layers, you are infused with the knowingness behind the imagery of the dream itself – the symbolism, etc.

So the degree I am ready to confront it is up to me. If I don’t confront it, it won’t become something more. The underlying question that’s put before me is, “Am I able to feel the need inside, to the degree necessary, to penetrate and awaken to a subtler depth of inner beingness?”

If I am ready, and normally I am, to make that shift, that’s when the dream world is apt to sense that there is a process of letting go, and then will reveal more. As long as I am purposely holding on and accepting that as okay, I am stopping myself from acknowledging the deeper need.

It’s like I’m saying “No,” to what is more, and my choice is honored. Such choices always place my deeper beingness behind a defensive veil.
