Posts Tagged ‘dogs in a dream’

Here we have the imagery of vicious creatures, in a dense jungle, chasing pet dogs. So, what is more upsetting, those images, or remembering that we are all the characters in our dreams? We are a man’s best friend living in a quiet town, and we are vicious creatures that just might win out over the friendly pups. But, from the dream’s perspective, this isn’t a battle of good over evil as much as it is a reminder that what is hidden in us is the most threatening when we leave it in the darkness. Our journey is to help bring the light of our consciousness into the darker spaces – which benefits the whole of us.

John: The Chistis still work within the level of dharma. I’m still working within the level of a type of dying before you die, which is a total letting go. 

And if you’re working within the level of a dharma, you’re going to continue to work with the rhythm of the breath. And if you continue to work with the rhythm of the breath, then you’re going to have to somehow accommodate the unfoldment of others into the equation of things. In other words, you don’t just carry a heartfulness, in, and of, and with yourself exclusively, and ignore, for example, on the out-breath the pragmatic aspect of things that functions as well and has more to offer because it is very, very jinn skills oriented and it hasn’t weakened itself. Or still considers itself very, very viable, when the path towards the angelic is continuously cutting things, and cutting things, and cutting things. 

In the first dream, it’s very, very loud, I go out into the deep woods with my dogs and run into vicious creatures. In other words, this is like a jungle out there, and I run into vicious creatures that I’m able to ward off based upon my presence. I’m able to ward them off because maybe I have a kind of a weapon or something that keeps them at bay. 

But my dogs would not be any protection and it’s a good thing that I’m there. In fact, I’m told that my dogs, if left alone out there, will eventually get pulled down, meaning they can’t outrun these vicious wild creatures.

Well, I don’t want to think about it, but because this thought was brought up, that it could be like this, it grabbed my attention as a concern. And whenever you wonder like that, this gives the opportunity for an instability to eventually come to the forefront and potentially happen. 

Well sure enough, the day arrives when the dogs are in the jungle. In other words, a part of myself that is extended out, that doesn’t have its full presence is what the dogs represent because they’re the friends. And these wild creatures attack. So the dogs run for their lives. 

And I’m sitting there wondering, man, they have to really go through some very thick jungle, you know, that  could slow them down because these wild creatures live in this kind of jungle, they don’t mind this kind of thing. I’m really concerned: can they make it? Can they make it? And they finally burst out of the jungle into town, just as the wolves are catching them and pulling them down. And I can feel the pain of the wolves attack catching up with them, or wild creatures, whatever they are. 

So I wake up feeling the pain of the dogs needing civilization to wake up. So, what’s the meaning? This follows underneath the quality of a greater watching-your-heart theme. Almost the need to be able to watch the heart, in the heart of another. To be able to affect that. In other words, if everything is still asleep, this problem could come right into town, and could happen and everyone stays asleep. No one’s the wiser. 

Or they could wake up and everything could get fixed, you know, you could beat off the darkness. So as a dream it indicates that help is needed before surrendering angelically is sustainable. If you’re in a deep inner place, deep inside of yourself, that can be kind of angelic. You can’t maintain that, you can’t sustain that, especially if you’re working with just the rhythm of the breath and you’re not going out of Dodge, which, I guess, you’re not supposed to do, you’re supposed to maintain yourself in the books of life. You can’t sustain this angelic side of yourself. 

And if you ignore, kind of in a whole other part of yourself that is in the denseness of the outer, it’s like we kind of are perhaps maybe we’re going somewhere in a different kind of way from a top-down approach, but there’s something that enables us to pull out dreams, which is like a quality of a blackboard in our nature, by which, whenever we’re going through something we can catch up with it and pull it out – it just doesn’t circle around unconsciously and remain in an untouchable state. 

With most people that dream, if you really look at it, the dream is usually triggered by something that has created some sort of effect that you’ve spun around, either it could be something profoundly wonderful, it could be something profoundly bizarre. Anyway it’s something to some sort of essence of your being, leaked through, like it hit a spot that came through, that got your attention in some mode, and you have to look at it more succinctly.

Amongst the Chistis they’re affected differently in that they know that they’re dreaming a lot but they don’t remember any of it – and how that comes through is a whole other thing.

_dog_1Remember when you were really afraid of doing something, and avoided it, and avoided it for the longest time. Then, once you finally got up the courage and did it, it became your absolute favorite thing – and you couldn’t believe you’d waited so long. Spiritual development is like that: it can seem intimidating to come face-to-face with inner aspects of ourselves, but, once we do, it opens up a whole new world for us.

Jeane: I just had parts of two dreams that I remember.

In the first dream it feels like I’ve gone to a house that’s a little bit more in the country. When I go in the house they have a big dog in the yard that’s a little intimidating, so I stay in the house and keep the dog out in the yard.

But it feels like before long the feeling I have is that what the dog’s actually doing is it’s kind of protecting me from another big dog that’s out there and I’ve made friends with it – so I can approach the house and I’m not afraid of the dog anymore.

That’s the impressions I remember from that first dream.

John: So it’s a dream about yourself going outside of your limits, or of your conceptual limits, from an environment that you’re normally in, into another place that involves you having to confront something that, to begin with, you’re not sure about how that fits in. And in taking and contending with that you find out that it’s a friend, it’s a part of yourself that’s hidden, that’s unknown, but it is actually a part that you have to access, that you have to come to grips with.

You wouldn’t have been able to get to this other place – that is also you – if you didn’t avail yourself of this friend. And when you finally realize the importance of that, you realize that there are still other forces because you’ve extended yourself outside of your comfort zones, you’ve expanded your consciousness, and there are still other things that appear to be a bit much that could interfere with your well being – and they also are shaped and placed in a mannerism as something that you will have to overcome. They’re dogs, and dogs symbolically are our friends, even though it’s something that you haven’t yet learned how to awaken.

xsultIf we look at how so many video games are designed, or we look at folk tales and fables, we often see how a person on a journey needs to gather items that give them a certain power or ability that they will need to undertake the next challenge along the way. It is no different in our daily life, and it is no different in our dreams. Our systems are trying to help us on our endeavor and, in terms of the human journey, what gives us our most powerful energy and potential is to bring together the multiple aspects of ourselves – into a cohesion. We are at our best when we can use all the tools at our disposal to take on our next challenge.

John: So what else happens now?

Carol: Okay, so I’m in this house, and I’m with my sister and my niece, and the feeling of it is… besides this monkey jumping around like you’re talking about and these puppies, it’s a nice feeling.

John: Puppies are cuddly, too. A dog, in terms of Native American symbolism, is your friend. It’s the kind of friend that’s always eager to be with you. You know, you can kick a dog and it’ll still come back to the stoop of the house. A dog will always be the obedient, loyalty kind of thing; friend, loyalty. I think loyalty is the louder word to use for a dog.

Carol: Yeah, so that’s happening, but then all of a sudden this strange man shows up, with a bunch of his friends, and he’s very large, and they’re taking up a lot of energy, and they’re very aggressive. And they have three large dogs, and they’re playing really loud music.

And so this kind of tranquility becomes… it wasn’t fear. It was more like, oh, gosh, what is this you know, what is this energy here now? And I was worried about the monkey and the puppies because he was very coarse, this person and everything that he was with, the dogs they were huge, and kind of fierce dogs. And so that kind of came in on the situation and was making things uncomfortable.

John: That’s raw energy. That whole scene is raw energy. It’s most highly epitomized by the crudeness of power and control of the masculine. It suffocates something in that quality of its nature and it, however, is something that you have to accept. But, initially, you can’t because it’s, like you say, it’s loud, it’s noisy.

That’s an interesting way of characterizing. You have that in front of you and it affects a certain sensibility and, as you develop more auric space, you’re able to handle that as a quality of something that you can put into your heart. But right now it’s repulsive. It’s repulsing the situation.

Think of your setting here. You know, you’ve got nice, large picture windows, you look out over a still lake, you’ve got nice, loyal puppy dogs, you’ve got a monkey that’s creating a little mischievousness and whatnot, but you’re willing to contend with that. And now, all of a sudden, this thing has gotten complicated with these guys that could even be half scary with their big dogs and all that; loyal to them, but not necessarily to you… yet.

Yet you can make them loyal to yourself. You can acclimate and take all of that in, but from the storyline what you can and can’t do is not the point. The thing is this is the storyline. This is how you are feeling yourself, at this particular point in time, in terms of how things are dancing around and unfolding with you.

Okay, you’ve got the lake, you’ve got the large picture windows, you’ve got the puppy dogs, you’ve got the monkey – but you can handle that. But it’s just enough that there has to still be some sorting out there, and then here comes a huge complication. And that has to be taken in and embraced as part of the wholeness, as well, in order for you to be complete. It is a raw energy, and that raw energy is important to the process, and it’s important to the process in that it is an aspect of you catching up with your own inner, personal power.

And, as long as you reject it, or push it aside, or have issues about it, then you are stabbing yourself in some capacity, in relationship to your wholeness, which is your personal power. And you have to have power, inner power, to make the journey.

And so when you annihilate, or reject, that, or have issues with that, you’re hurting yourself. You’re being somewhat cynical to the energetic. It’s interesting. You’re still telling a story of yourself like you tell in an initial big dream. You’re still describing how you’re putting the tablecloth onto the table of life. That’s what you’re doing yet.

You’re catching up with the components inside of yourself. You’re seeing the components introduced inside of yourself. It’s kind of like seeing the credits of a movie before, then you have the movie, or whatever. You’re getting all of that upfront, and then as you sweep it in the whole thing then goes from there, and whatever states you have to go through, and whatever processes you have to go through. In other words, we all carry a heavy, heavy responsibility in terms of we’re here to serve, and yet you can’t serve if you still have something that you are pushing off, judging, annihilating in terms of the greater picture of things.

And these guys, they actually also are what’s called a kind of dark energy. A dark energy is something that destabilizes a sense of balance and, for the longest period of time, there are certain dark energies that you have to steer clear of. But eventually you have to face all of that in order to take on more inner power, or to grow.

And so you’re describing a little of your battleground, so to speak, of evolving here. This is your symbolic way of doing it. That’s a good tablecloth. That lays the thing out. That’s, so to speak, setting the tempo; I guess I’d call it a tempo. It’s not really necessarily a theme. A theme becomes something that’s kind of put in motion, then, to where you then go through this, that, and the other as part of a schooling or something, or being trained. And when it’s like that the way that it’s often times portrayed is that the soul is being trained.

I guess you could say it that way because the veils that normally cover things up so that you can’t have this access, something has to be quickened, in terms of this innerness, and so that is like a training of the soul. So that’s your tablecloth.

Carol: One little piece at the end was when I’m still in the house, and I’m just with all this, and then somehow I get a text from my niece, who was in the dream but now she must be somewhere else, and I get an image of her with a black birthday hat.

And it was like I had forgotten her birthday. The feeling in the dream was, oh, there she is in the birthday hat. But it was just her picture, and I was like, oh, did I forget her birthday? And that was sort of how the dream ended.

John: Now, in a dream, those are all parts of yourself. And so these feminine parts of yourself are important to this process, all part of setting this tablecloth on the table kind of thing. And your niece, that part of yourself, is trying to text to you – it’s you – trying to use whatever this quality is that this niece represents as a component energetic , it’s trying to bring a memo through.

Now what’s interesting about the niece is she is wearing a black hat. Well, the color black is very important as a color for the feminine, just like the color white is very, very important for the masculine.

A teacher on duty, a masculine teacher on duty, will often, if they are going to portray the vibration of themselves, for whatever particular reasons, as an expression or something, will be inclined to wear white.

A feminine teacher on duty will be inclined to wear black. It’s a little known fact. It’s part of the mystery of the feminine.

A pretty interesting dream. I’m now curious if you put it into motion in any regard with the next dream, or whether you’re still gathering information, gathering your tool chest together.
