Posts Tagged ‘dog in a dream’

stuOne of the fundamental ideas about dream images is that we are all the characters in our dreams: male and female, young and old – even the animals are an aspect of us. They are symbolic representations of energetic threads within, and our unconscious splits them out, and clothes them representatively, so we can witness their interaction – shown to us by flow, or resistance to flow, by a smooth journey, or a huge ordeal. Sometimes issues are resolved (we find a flow), and sometimes our inner resistance makes the situation worse (something or someone needs to chase us). Then they are all returned to our unconscious, in whatever state they get to, and await the next opportunity to communicate with us.

Jeane: Well, the early part of the night it just felt like I dreamt about my nephew and other people that were sorting out things at my dad’s house. And so I don’t remember much about that. I had trouble sleeping.

And then I had a dream where it feels like I’m going between one house and another, and I have a dog with me, a little Dachshund. When I walk the dog and I take the dog back to the first house, it’s like I want to let it go, but then I realize there’s this old man that’s kind of crawled into the space where the dog would be in the house where I would’ve let it go, so I can’t let the dog go.

And so then I’m kind of taking the dog around the yard and into another room, and meanwhile it seems to have gotten itself halfway stuck in a big paper cup of some kind. So I think the dog is just playing with that, but then I realize, you know, I can’t quite seem to get it to go run or play where it wants to, so then I pull the cup off it and I realize that there was still tea in the cup, and the dog had tea all over them, that they had actually been stuck. I thought they were just playing.

And so now I have to go like dry the dog off so I can let it go play. The old man was up at the house, you know. There was a lady there, too, but, you know, it’s like I had gone down to another area with the dog because I was trying to get the dog exercise and let it run.

John: You’re dangling on the outside of how the intertwining works.

First of all you started off with your nephew, at your dad’s house. And you’re just watching that. Now, that watching that is from afar. What if you were to take the afar, and take out the transcending of time and space, and put in its place a you that is also outside of time?

Because actually, in the dream, you are outside of time, but your perception is still limited. You’re still keeping the veil in place of time. If you revealed the veil of time, then you would be your nephew, and you would be your dad, and there would be no watching. There would just be something unfolding as a continuous, never-dying aliveness.

And then this gap, or like level, of time comes up again in the other dream in which you have this older man, okay. So it doesn’t matter whether there’s a relationship or not, other than the fact that this older man is a part of yourself – but you’re caught up in the friend, the dog, and the dog is stuck in an illusion, a paper cup, and the attentions of all of that never comes together.

The old man is somewhere else, and you, in a particular mannerism of the way you are carrying yourself, have to contend with an energetic vibration that has to sort something out. You know, there’s the tea, there’s the cup, there’s all of that sort of stuff reflective of a way of being, a way that you are being. But the old man was nowhere in the equation; he’s somewhere else.

What’s wrong with that picture is that it doesn’t have to be that way. The old man, you, the tea, the cup, the dog, all are vibrationally intertwined, so vibrationally intertwined that there isn’t any separate distinction to be denoted.

contraste-colores_It is often pointed out that we live in a world of duality: up and down, hot and cold, high and low, male and female, and on and on. And mostly we get caught on one side or the other of this duality. Yet as we develop, and elevate our viewpoint, the duality begins to be less important that the connections between things. And if we keep elevating higher, we’ll eventually merge into a oneness. Until then, as this dream shows, being caught in the duality of things is a state of delirium. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So my dreams were rather chaotic last night. The first dream I had seemed like there was a civil war taking place of some kind, and it stretched all the way from Alaska to wherever I was. And sometimes you saw families torn apart, because maybe the man had a wife that was black and she had to go live somewhere distant. Other times people were able to be together.

I remember some of the fighting was going on in Alaska and I remember that your brother-in-law was in the dream, but mostly it just felt chaotic.

John: That seemed to be what was going on continuously in the dreaming last night, was that there was always a corollary. In other words, if something came through in one way, there would be yet another way, an opposite, a contrast.

And thus it was hard for the dreams to flow because there was always the contrast. The contrast is just the contrast, and I can’t help but think that that seems to be the case in terms of the way the consciousness evolves, or one of the threads in which consciousness evolves, in which if you push yourself to an extreme contrast, something takes place, an awareness, an understanding takes place, or occurs.

But then the question is, what about the opposite of that? So it’s kind of like expansive and contractive, expansive and contractive. And this has to do with being able to flush out the future, to be able to work with the principles of expansive and contractive to get to a point where you actually have a sense of what is meant to be – or otherwise you just sit in kind of a delirium, where one part of yourself that has the 180-degree contrast goes up and contends with another part – and there is no vibratory flow in that.

The emptiness somehow or another exists, but it’s like a level or something that takes one outside of the contrast.

Jeane: In the second dream, I’m driving down a city street. Traffic’s been difficult, like maybe even was going the wrong direction at one point, but the road has opened up. I seem to be with someone I was in a relationship with in the past in the car, and suddenly this man and woman that are together, he comes riding a horse down the hill, but this hill is like all shell and he shouldn’t even be out riding a horse on it.

Plus then he rides the horse right into the pavement and the horse skids, because the pavement is slick, and falls down. And it feels like he gets off the horse, and the horse gets up and runs away and just looks like a big dog when it runs away. And I’m kind of furious at him because he shouldn’t have ridden a horse down this shell or on the pavement. Like what was he doing riding a horse when he didn’t know what to do with it, or what was good for it?

So it’s almost like I go looking for him to tell him what he did wrong. He seems to own an auto body shop or something that’s down the way, so I finally find the place where he and the woman are and I go right into their home to tell him about the horse.

They’re having a group of people in the home, so I spend a little time there, and when I’m ready to leave I even pick up and bag up some popcorn that they had served, without even asking permission, although I show them what I’ve done. And then the woman takes me aside into another room because she suddenly realizes that I’m leaving and she’s wondering what I was doing in her home, so she wants to know what my phone number is. It’s like she wants to verify who I am. But I’m trying my darnedest to remember my phone number. It takes me forever. I have to look through my purse and find this and find that. I don’t have my phone on me. I finally come up with the number and she checks it out, and then she asks for something else that’s supposed to go along with it that proves it’s the right number, and I’d never heard of that before and then she just kind of laughs because that was just kind of a test. There isn’t any such number or nobody knows it if there is.

So then I’m pretty sure I’m leaving and going home, but I blank out, and I wake up and I’m in bed with the guy. And I’m shocked that I’ve obviously spent the night there with him. And she comes in and she’s all upset the relationship is going to end, but she’s willing to keep him on as a client. She does some kind of very strange and different therapy. That doesn’t make any sense to me anymore than a lot of the things in the dream have made sense, and all I want to do is get out of there. I think my father even showed up at the house at one point, and I just want to get out of there because I can’t even remember. I thought I’d left and then I wake up in bed.

While they’re fighting or whatever they’re doing, I go over to a window. I think I open up the window, I find a rope, I’m going to throw it across a little space to where a dock is where someone can fasten it, and I think I can crawl down the rope. But I can’t throw the rope all the way over without someone having to grab it out of the water. Somehow I get out of the house, and then I see my dad who had come to the party, but he’d come with a bunch of other relatives.

I walk over to the cars they’re taking home and he’s crowded in a car with my sister and a bunch of other people, and there’s both a black and a white car and they’re driving off. And I also remember right before I left the house I glanced over and I saw my friend, who’s died, and his chest is all open and I see that there’s all this white lard looking stuff around part of his heart, so maybe that’s why he died. But it’s a big expansive open area and there was different stuff in there including this white hard looking stuff.

And I know I finally leave. The whole dream was just, you know, upsetting to me.

John: Again, it’s one combobulation after another, that seems to be the situation in a setting that exists here. And even though there can be a kind of clarity or consciousness in this, it’s real easy to look at it and just see the flip sides, everything has a flip side.

In other words, you start off with the flip side of power, and that results in something crashing and then there’s the friend, the horse goes from power to friend. It’s as if there’s a huge amnesia that exists in between those flip sides. What is there that’s visible? What is there in that because the polarities, the one or the other, each image has its own kind of delirium – and it’s like a type of cracking up, is what it’s like. I’m sure there’s something good in terms of this cracking up, but if one doesn’t figure out what that is, or come up with a continuity to what that is, you just sit, you just stay in limbo. You’re kind of in a frozen space, because you do one thing you end up with something else. So there’s a linkage that’s missing. Well, the dreams were all like this. They were one contrast after another.

Jeane: All I could remember of the last thing in the morning, there may have been other dreams but again because I was trying to always pull something together, or come back to a dhikr, it felt like I finally came to something which were these round disks that were dark, and maybe had copper symbols on them, that were uniform that went around the circle or the disk. There was something about those images that was beginning to calm a little bit.

John: This sort of stuff defeats every kind of transitional flow. In other words, what all these other images and whatnot is that you’re having, the last thing you saw, though, has to do with how things get created, or how you manifest, how you build something.

Because copper comes after gold and silver, in terms of the sequence of things. It has a very significant symbolic meaning, just like gold represents the masculine, silver represents the feminine, copper is another representation in terms of a vibratoriness, iron is the dense construct of things, and all of these are alchemical symbolic images.

Rainbow SunIn this series of dreams, our story from yesterday (see A Sleeping Giant) continues to unfold. What has been awakened is now a teenage boy and the dreamer is trying to integrate that new energy into the wholeness of herself. But, as the images proceed, we can see that there is an inner aspect that is resisting this change, and doing so by isolating itself. We see this in the outer when it is difficult to integrate groups of people, and we experience it on the inner level as we try to integrate more and more of our totality. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in this next little vignette, I seem to be sitting in kind of an old-fashioned kind of darker room, you know like with dark furniture, and the lighting’s not real bright, and I’m contemplating something. There’s a teenage boy there with me, and there’s some men standing not too far away.

And I’m aware that I’ve gotten this boy that he’d apparently been at some point isolated on an island, but now he’s with me. And I realize that the men in a sense are wondering kind of what use he is, but I’m aware that he was isolated on an island maybe that Amelia Earhart had crashed on, and that he’s probably a descendant of hers.

And so, at some point, if somebody weds him or something, the children could carry on that line – and that there’s a lot of value in that. And I realize that they’re not even at this point in time thinking of that.

John: See, you’ve created an interesting circle of which, like life has this way of revolving, always revolving back to a same sameness. But what you have, in terms of the big picture, is intertwined, but what you have in terms of the perspective around you is they don’t see the big picture.

In other words, they see something that is different and, therefore, different because of its mannerism of isolation, and so it tends to be not accepted, or not taken into a proper recognition, and therefore an unfoldment is inhibited.

Now you are looking at this from the standpoint of a wholeness. Some part of you inside of the matrix of all of this can look at what would be a wholeness where things go awry, and astray, but eventually cycle back because they have in the essence of their nature that which is redeeming. And, at any given point of a process, if just looked at that given point and not able to take into account the fullness of what is intended and meant to be, you’re going to have attitudes, and mannerisms, and bifurcated impressions that are shallow.

It’s because no one can see how the beginning and the end are one and the same. Instead there is the recognition, or the seeing, of the diversity and diversities that are trying to be accepted, and that a human being who is looking at the diversity only of their own face, or self image of things, is going to see nothing but diversity around. And so nothing can really unfold, or be shaped, or intertwined when you have this kind of constant pigeonholed… well, it’s a judgement and definition, and when you have that, things aren’t allowed to evolve.

Jeane: In the next little vignette, I’m sitting again in kind of a darker, older room on a couch. There’s a couple animals off to the side I don’t see clearly, but there’s a coffee table and kind of a small dog, a little puppy, right in front of me, and I have something fluffy in my hand, it’s kind of red I think. I toss it and he’ll go racing across the room and pick it up and bring it back to me.

I mean I think there’s another couple of animals in the room, but I don’t see them clearly. Obviously they’re not puppies even if they are dogs, and so I’m having a lot of fun with this, you know. And it feels like the men who are like the authority in the other dream are in a room behind me, because I’m sitting on a couch and two or three times I’m just taking this and I toss it across the room and the dog goes racing after it, you know, and runs back to me with it, you know. It’s really kind of a fun energy, and for some reason I’m equating this with some kind of energy my grandmother had.

John: So what you’re doing is, the first two images and dreams, actually kind of leave one’s self in a kind of a predicament because even though you have a sense of how something is to come together, what you’re seeing around you is something that overweights the situation. In other words, the environment of this big guy is such that he can’t be accommodated as things are.

And in the second dream, this perspective is limited and thus there is no acceptance, no joy, no flow. And the third dream is a breakthrough from all of that. In other words, you can have the setness off to one side, the guys or whatever that are sitting there, but what’s happening in front of you is going properly back and forth. There’s a cohesion.

The dog represents a joy and a friend, and he’s eager to go back and forth fetching things and bringing it back, and fetching things and bringing it back. Within that whole mannerism is a completion. Now the tone or the mood of the guy sitting somewhere off in the distance, does not have that, but what’s being brought in to the atmosphere is this vibe that has to do with this going back and forth and the joy of the dog fetching things – and that there is a complete circle that is being made.

The guy sitting off to one side will be sitting in some sort of tone, or mood, that will be keeping him stale, and stuck, and tranced out, but you don’t have that with this dog and this flow and all of this going back and forth. You have something that’s very fluid, and that is the atmosphere, that is being reflected as a solution to a need.

Jeane: Then as I was waking up it’s like I had this last image where it felt like that it was at a point where the boy from before is maybe now at an age where he can have children, but we seem to have to go to court to get permission for that, because those other guys are trying to block it.

And so I’m going to go to court with him, to represent him, but then I glance over and I see that those men from before, they have this white convertible and I even see them taking some big long rifles out of their trunk. I’m wondering how this is going to work out in court, because I’m not really an attorney, and they look kind of high powered to me. And I’m wondering if we’ll have an attorney to represent us. This is just kind of a domestic issue, you know. This kid wants to go forward. Maybe the judge can just handle this, but I don’t know. I’m kind of shocked to see these guys with their rifles and everything.

John: So this is what tends to evolve whenever something is pushed in a way, or something goes to a point that, is too much. In other words, out of the prior dream you have the guy sitting off to one side in his grumpy motif, kind of putting up with but not really accepting the play that’s going on near him in which the dog is going back and forth fetching things, and there’s kind of a free flow and a joy and a play that exists there.

But, you know, he just can’t get out of his awkwardness that he is carrying, in terms of how he feels and sees himself, so as a consequence that sort of demeanor, if it’s not penetrated, has step-back blowback effects, which is what is portrayed in your final image, in which it fights that kind of fluidity, it fights that kind of flow, it’s threatened by that sort of thing, it loves and needs to hold onto its idea of the status quo.

And this is the conundrum that we have in the outer world these days. We sit and try to reflect and represent a difference, which is a vibratory difference, that is hard for people to recognize and to see, and only some can see it, but if you’re not careful, and you’re too obvious with it, you invoke the status quo defensiveness that tries to maintain the patterns in life, the patterns of denseness in life, that aren’t working. In other words, it’s almost like it’s content and wants to stay with the devil it knows, as opposed to what might be different, which it has no confidence or trust in accepting.
