Posts Tagged ‘dog in a dream’

33adIf we remember enough of our dreams, we will realize that many times nothing goes right, things become entangled, and then something will chase us. But in those situations there is often help and guidance; in the dream today that guidance shows up in the form of a dog. But this is also true of our waking life: the universe is always trying to offer us help and guidance. It can be less obvious – something said by a stranger, or a detour in the road – but it is there for us, particularly when we are struggling toward something greater than ourselves, because the universe is built to support that.

Jeane: I had a dream and it felt like I’m with a friend, and I also have a dog. It’s kind of a long, low-to-the-ground dog, you know, kind of like a small Bassett hound or something. And we’re being pursued, so we’re kind of on the run a lot.

And I go into this town, and there’s a lady in the village that seems like willing to hide us, so we go into her house. She wants to hide us in a room where we have to go up these thin stairs and then squeeze through some little bars, and barely can make it with the dog, and into a little room in the house that’s rarely used.

So we go there, manage to squeeze in there and look around, and the thing is I know it’s only for a certain time limit because their son, who’s away, will probably be coming home, and he would see us and then maybe more people would find out about us. But then we need to leave even sooner than that because at one point I look out the window and I see that there’s some neighbor ladies that can see in the window, and see that we’re there, so we need to kind of keep on the move. And it feels like we can’t even leave by going down and into the street; it feels like we have to kind of leave by going out over the rooftops.

For a while in that dream it just feels like I’m still on the move and being chased, and then finally we come to this little village. There’s at least two other people with me. I don’t know if the dog is still with me, or not. And as we come into this village we’re always staying about a day ahead of whoever’s chasing us, but I see a platform, and there’s a foreign looking guy and his friends, and I guess he’s something like a fortune teller, or someone who has a certain sight, so we go over and we sit down around him. It’s like we want to get some more information, and it feels like not only can he give us information, but he also knows about the people chasing us, that he can read the situation because I think the person chasing us is even from his village, or he knows him really well.

And some people try to convince us that maybe it’s coincidence that this person is just traveling the same way we’re traveling so we think he’s chasing us, but I know that’s not true. They’re actually chasing us. And then it feels like the dream just shifts.

John: So it seems like the situation you’re placed in is one of having to be in the outer sorting something out. And whatever it is that you have to contend with, or sort out, or come to grips with, or grasp in the outer is something that’s a bit overwhelming to your perception, or bewildering.

In other words, what you’re dealing with is something that you haven’t gotten beyond. It’s like a type of karma because there’s the constant sense of a chase scene.

Now the thing that you have, during all of this happening, is you had the dog. And so the dog is the helper or the friend. It’s kind of like if you didn’t have that, symbolically speaking, these forces could be too much for you. But this is where you get the help, or this is where you get the friend. And when it’s not needed anymore, when you go to this village where it’s not needed anymore, it’s not needed anymore because you’re able to now access the information, the help, and the guidance on your own. In other words, that’s where you meet something that is able to give you information about the situation that’s propounded upon your nature.

So your dream is centered primarily in the outer. In other words, to begin with everyone has to go through things in the outer in order to finally come to a recognition and realization of something more that’s possible – that isn’t just outwardly oriented, which is a reflection, which a person doesn’t realize. Initially they don’t realize the degree to which that is an inner flow. They just contend with it as an outer mannerism, and think of it only as an outer mannerism. They don’t realize that there is an inner design behind every outer mannerism. And if you’re just plopped into life, you then go through all kinds of bewilderment as a consequence of that.

But this isn’t a dense dream. This is a dream in which you’re intended to have to do this, and you’re protected in terms of having to go through this process. In other words, there’s a masculine way of doing the path towards consciousness, and then there’s a feminine way. And in the feminine way they are creation, and so you have all of these little things that pick and poke at you, but when you are on a path in which you have the protection and the guidance, it works out differently. You don’t develop the stigmas, and traumas, and catastrophes that cause one to keep taking steps backwards until they’re duped out, and completely lost, and have no way of understanding how to cope.

But in your particular case you have the dog, and the dog is like something that’s like a friend, or a protective force, for you. And then, when you don’t need the dog, then you have an aspect of the masculine, which is a type of sight, that really knows that what’s going on in terms of all of this is for a greater purpose, that recognizes more what it is truly all about from somewhere else, in other words, not just from the sense of how something is without, recognizes how it is in terms of a greater meaningfulness.

So you’re looking at one half; your looking at the part that has to rise up. In other words, it’s in manifestation and has to rise up energetically, in other words, come more to handing back and, in the doing of that, connects with what is going on, Is awoken to that in terms of what is going on because of the help that is provided, the friend, the dog, or ultimately, the aspect of the masculine that knows more about whatever it is that’s afflicting or confounding you.

It’s an outer that you’re contending with and you have guidance in that. And, yes, it can be bewildering and such, and confusing, but you’re intended to make headway through that. And even though you might not see that as what is going on, because it seems like wherever you go and however you do this is constantly haunting you. It’s not haunting you in a tearing down way. You are transcending it by the fact that it is something that you’re directly facing. You have to directly face this sort of thing before something more can actually open up because it actually is a step that stands before you receive all that is given. It’s kind of like part of the price of admission phase, and then all of a sudden everything opens up.

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.
