Hidden Treasures

mandala_by_hadasoIn these two dreams, Jeane is discovering hidden aspects of her self that are a help to her on her journey. Our spiritual journeys are just like the many great stories and fables: sometimes magical things happen, sometimes it seems there are insurmountable odds. But just as in the stories, what we need is available to us, it’s inside us now if we have the need to make the discovery.

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.

Jeane: In the next dream it’s like you and I had gone by some place like a smaller town and a county courthouse or something, and you had borrowed something from somebody there that like was a box full of mementos or something from a county. I wish I could remember more details, but it was something like that.

We’ve gone back and we’re standing around with some other people and we’re just picking up a few things that we have that we brought back in our pickup, or whatever we had, and everybody is kind of glossing over this one picture in a frame, but I pick it up and I blow away the dust and I see the picture is of like an old time miner or something, and then down by his feet maybe like a pick axe and a hat. But I look more closely at the hat in the picture and it’s kind of a dimensional picture and I blow the dust off of it and I realize it’s actually carved out of a gold coin and inscribed.

You see it’s not just a photograph or a carving, that it’s actually made out of gold once you blow the dust off and then you can read the inscription. And then you mention to me that that was one of the things that we had borrowed that we’re going to have to be returning to the place in the country. And I’m just really interested because it kind of caught my eye because everyone thought it was kind of worthless, but it was actually made out of gold and was rather interesting.

And then I’m looking through other things in a trunk that I kind of even feel some of them go back to Native Americans, but I’m a little concerned because in looking through it I’ve disturbed the order in which it was kind of laid or packed in the trunk and I’m not sure how easily it’s going to be to kind of fit everything back in in the right way. That’s all I really pulled out of that dream.

John: This is a dream in which what you’re doing is you’re feeling inside of yourself a suspense, or kind of a way of something that’s coming, or awakening, that’s impending in other words to open up.

Initially you see it in bits and pieces and flashes much like one comes to have dreams that they don’t know necessarily what they mean. But eventually it’s an accumulative process that over a course of time what seemed to be fairly insignificant and meaningless becomes something that has a completeness about it, that becomes something that you find is a true treasure.

This then takes you to realizing that the journey that you’re on is like that. Before this all kind of happened casually, in other words where something was deemed not all that significant and kind of worthless but there was an inner suspense inside of yourself that helped trigger this meandering towards something like this that can open up for you. And then all of a sudden now it has, and it has a huge meaningfulness, a completeness to it. It has a viability in and of itself.

This creates, then, a change of focus so to speak in which you now find yourself purposely looking for more. And the dream is saying, don’t lose the wonderful sensation of how the other just opened up and caught you and swept you in – in kind of a natural way. Because when you actually go out there and try to pick up the pieces for yourself, and go into the hidden treasures of things, you have a tendency to get this stuff skewered every which way and not know how to access it in a manner, and in an order, and in a sequence that is important.

The dream in and of itself is telling you, the fact that you can see that you can get something discombobulated in terms of going into the chest of things that is there to be found and reached, and it’s only possible because you did get to the gold coin, and that just acts as the catalyst to more and more and more of this.

But now that you know that you’re in a process that’s more and more and more, you have to listen more attentively inside of yourself to make sure that it unfolds in a way that touches the heart. And when you do that, then that makes sure that it unfolds in a way that doesn’t get out of order, or discombobulated, and cause you to go off on some spiritual tangent or mannerism that’s not in keeping with the process.

And there is a great tendency for that to happen once you suddenly get the memo of what it’s like and what it’s about. Then you can tend to turn your attention towards that and try to help it along – and that can create a problem.

Something Real

Hilma_af_Klint_SvanenBeing in service to the whole is an often misunderstood idea. It can encompass the selfless acts of good samaritans, yet at a higher level it is the conscious shifting of energy, from out of balance into balance, or even cleaning up coarse energies and elevating them to a higher vibration. We do this by the aggregation of our energetic life: whatever level of vibration we hold radiates and affects the environment around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.) This post was originally published in February 2014.

Jeane: It felt like my dreams were way too wispy to pull out. I know the last one I was having, it felt like I was a woman and it’s almost like I would like I would go into a building, it felt like a bank building or some kind of commercial building, and whatever was going on there it was almost like I tried to draw fire, like maybe there was gunfire going on, or something that kind of diffused the situation inside, that if I could pull the attention, or I could be there, maybe I could shift what was happening.

And it might just be something that was being caused by some little boys playing there, but if I could deflect their attention it might make a difference. And I would leave and then maybe I would come back and try to deflect the situation in another setting. And then go back to someplace like a railroad station. It’s just all really vague, I couldn’t pull it out.

John: So what you were doing was, you were sacrificing yourself, so to speak, to draw the attention of an energetic?

Jeane: it didn’t feel like a sacrifice, it felt more like if I were there I could do something to draw the attention of the situation and help shift it.

John: I think it’s talking about this quality that is natural to the feminine nature that is able to take a situation in which you can hear various energetics that are in the environment, and it can help those energetics see themselves, because it is able to work from a place of, well it doesn’t hold a judgment, it holds an energetic space, so that those energetics get grounded.

In other words, I think it’s saying that you have the ability to take, no matter how disoriented something may be, or disconnected, or unbalanced something may be, that you can go and, in a non-judgment state, because you can see that behind that is something that is valid, that is real, that just can’t catch up with itself. And you can take and absorb the energy of those ideas and awaken or quicken, with your focus or attention, that which lies within.

That then takes what exists in the outer and enables it to see itself as being unbalanced or misaligned. And it actually does more than just see itself as misaligned, I mean that kind of goes away, too, it tends to see how it is that it is meant to be in terms of a wholeness. 

In other words, the parts that are considered askew and astray suddenly make sense, in terms of the equation or picture of things.

It reminds me of this example. It’s a story in which, I believe it involved the Dalai Lama who came to visit this person, who took the Dalai Lama, as if he didn’t know any better, into a bar scene where you had every imbalance or peculiarity going on that you could possibly imagine.

And the Dalai Lama laughed and carried on and acted as if this was of no consequence whatsoever, essentially taking the energetic of that space into himself, but seeing it for how it was on a whole other level.

And so, as a consequence, the Dalai Lama was emanating a quality that wasn’t out of balance with the place that the Dalai Lama was in. Instead was in balance, and therefore balanced out that environment for those who had the ability to inflect inside themselves and catch the reflection of how it really is, vibrationally, to the eyes of the Dalai Lama in a state where it all makes sense.

So, the point being is that, in life, the vagaries and mannerisms and attitudes that you generally see are imbalances that exist that, technically behind that, those imbalances, is something that is real. And that if a person is grounded enough, whole enough, complete enough, accepting enough of their own energetic being, it can take that and see that for what it is – and not get all twisted and reactive and rejective of those conditions.

To be able to absorb like that is what it takes to take something that’s in disarray and bring it back to where that disarray catches up with its own wholeness – or has that capability.

So I think you’re dreaming that and you’re realizing that you can do that to a greater capacity.

Haunted from Within

There’s a certain snail found in open fields that can be overtaken by a specific parasite. When that happens, the parasite is able to chemically induce the snail to want to climb up to the top of a blade of grass where it gets eaten by grazing livestock – and that is the end goal of the parasite, the cow’s stomach, it’s just using the snail for its purposes. When we are possessed by anything energetically it can cause us to do things that aren’t always in our best interest. Part of our journey toward consciousness is to realize when these parasitic energetics pop up. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in this dream, I’m like a young woman, probably in my 20s or something. And it feels like I’ve either been given or inherited an estate I don’t know much about, that I’ve gone to visit. 

The other people on the estate are kind of standoffish with me, and I think that maybe they thought they were going to get it, or maybe they run it, so they don’t know really who I am. I’m kind of going through different buildings looking at what’s going on. There’s a horse barn that some of the people seem to be in, and they’re doing things with the horses. 

But again, like I said, there’s no one that’s real friendly. There’s two girls about my age, one of them seems to be supportive, and the other seems to just kind of not want to associate with me. So I think maybe she thought that she should be getting the estate? I don’t know, I don’t know how to take it all. 

Meanwhile, it feels like to me, I’m just planning on leaving right then. I’m looking for someone else that I want to ride with me when I leave, to wherever it is that I feel like I need to go. I realize that people on this estate aren’t relating that well to me, so they’re not being very helpful when I’m getting ready to go. I’m looking for a bathroom. I go in one room that looks like a bathroom and I take a bunch of stuff that’s been piled on something that I hope is a toilet, but it turns out just to be a chamber pot filled with sand. And I see someone run by and I think maybe they know where the bathroom is. 

Now, I’ve been at a banquet that I’ve left and I still seem to be planning on leaving town. But it feels like there must have been some event like a fire that was handled – it’s out now, but there are still some people coming to help us with it. Because I look up and the sky is full of things like blimps. But these blimps, they’re traveling past us to someplace else where there’s a problem. But some of them are stopping and they’re letting people down who were coming into the village, who want to help us.

They all go to the banquet. And I guess because I’m supposed to own this place, now they think I’m going to be at the banquet, too. But I’m actually in one of the side houses; I’m still kind of looking for some things to pack because I know I’m traveling somewhere else. That’s all I could really remember. 

John: I had a hard time pulling out dreams last night, too, because I’m not used to being around a vibration that’s an exorcism vibration, where something is removed. In other words, things are given, but then how are they removed – they just move on? 

And what you were contending with was a sense of something that’s there as a haunting aspect or something from you catching up with, or being in touch with, how it is that you are, and who it is that you are. 

And so we’re used to looking and dreaming in a way that has us taking and realizing that there’s something so much more about ourselves. We’re not used to dreaming, or looking or having to go through things as if we carry around certain shadows or possessions. We talk about a shadow dynamic, but we never think about it in terms of it being like a type of possessory thing. It has its way of holding on to us in some fashion. It maintains some sort of characteristic about us. When you develop a certain kind of clarity, or quality inside, energetically it’s as if you can throw this sort of thing off. It’s as if it’s not there. 

When we meditate and such I never thought about the idea that one has to contend with things trying to get hold of you, I’ve only thought about it in the positive that you take and you develop a certain energetic and then all of this other stuff falls away. You go and you probe the depths of yourself – might be the closest that one comes to the idea of dealing with some sort of malingering vibrations or possessory qualities. 

And the other way that might be the closest that I’ve come to that is the idea that there are certain things that get repressed into one’s nature, that are in the molecular of one’s being, that rise up when the energy rises, that come out then and can haunt you from within. 

I believe all of that is kind of true as a way of saying it, but then there’s another way of looking at it directly in which these forces and whatnot can actually be viewed as having a kind of entity quality about them that can have an effect at holding one’s energy down because it hovers with us, or sits with us, and so it’s a whole other school of thought to be able to address that sort of thing.
