San-Andreas-1-We rarely acknowledge how sensitive we are because the world requires that we be strong and keep pushing onward. But we are incredibly sensitive to everything that happens to us, both inside our bodies and in the outside world. And our systems are left to handle the collateral effects – while we move on to other things. Some of that processing and handling happens in our dreams, as our systems try to communicate the distress we are experiencing and to sort out the absurdities we often have to deal with. Understanding our dreams can help us troubleshoot some of the stresses we otherwise would miss.

Jeane: Well, in my first dream, it’s like I’ve gone to work at a mental health center. And I go into the office and I used to see people who come in as counseling, but then I look at the people in the office, the supervisor and the secretaries and everybody, and then I walk out of the office and I walk into like a workshop area and there some people are working with clients that, you know, I guess have had more severe mental illnesses, and they’re just showing them things on the worktable.

And I realize that these are the people that I’ll be working with now and it’ll be different than I worked before, which is more spontaneous and everything, that probably what they need are basic skills training. And I’m sure that there’s people that have written even manuals that I can find, that you shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheels if you’re doing basic skills training. There must be manuals around somewhere to just start out with when you’re working with people that need that.

John: So, initially, you’re working at a type of mental health center. And then, suddenly, you find yourself at another type of mental heath center that needs to be approached in a different way?

So, you went to work in this place thinking that it needed to be one way, and find out that it needs to be another, that you need to take a step back, huh? And, in taking the step back, you’re approaching it in a different way. In other words, you had a particular notion about what it was going to be like when you went there, and instead, when you go there, you realize everything has to come back to basics.

So basics means back to square one. Well, what’s square one, if you were to try to look at this dream in a symbolic way? Square one’s probably coming back all the way to how things are in the outer, and to come back to the basics in terms of the outer means to come into the outer, or to hold something for the outer, so that the outer can be aligned.

In other words, you started thinking it was one way, that there was something that could be done, and you ended up realizing – by having to take a step back – that you had to go all the way back to not necessarily working with what could be done, but with recognizing the general overall need to hold that which is the basics.

That’s interesting.

Jeane: In the next dream, I’m at some kind of a hotel in the mountains, because I can look out my window and I can see down into like a square where there’s people and activity going on, and there are other people that I know that are in nearby hotel rooms.

Well, I suddenly realize that some of the people nearby are turning against others of us that they perceive as different, and killing us. So, someone, she acts like she’s a friend, comes and knocks on the door. And I carefully lock it so that she can’t get in, because I realize she has a gun and is going to kill the one or two of us that are in the room.

And I even see that there’s bodies piled up outside the door, so I’m very careful, you know, just to be quiet and step aside. And I look out the window and I notice what’s going on there, too, but it feels like if I can be quiet and wait until a certain energy passes it will be okay, but for right now if I were to open the door or anything she would just shoot us.

John: So the first dream that you had is basically giving you a blueprint in terms of how it is that you’re able to function. That’s a bit of a shock, actually, because one is so used to having to contend with things.

So, in the second dream, it’s as if you kind of let go of those basics now and, as a consequence, are being overwhelmed by deeply imbedded energetics that still affect the way you see yourself, or conduct yourself.

In other words, these are like energetics that rise up within, maybe as a type of unfinished business or something, and those are energetics that are associated with something that has yet to be aligned with the heart – so that the heart can experience other levels, and the immensity of these other levels.

This is something that haunts you, or affects the heart, as an energetic that affects the heart. The way that your heart is affected by such energetics, you generate the following dream image to point out the burden that’s being imposed. It’s as if by pointing it out this way, it’s like explaining the conditions that you find yourself in. Yeah, they may even be outward conditions in the environment, but nevertheless they are conditions that you find yourself in that you need to let go of or you’re haunted in a particular way. I mean, that dream is hard on the heart, isn’t it?

I mean it creates a heavy heart, and it creates a condition in which, you know, if I were to try to go to sleep under a condition like this it would be in the way, which means that it stops and it blocks a process from awakening, and unfolding. And it comes from something that’s ended.

In other words, yes, it’s an image that you created, generated; the image that you generated is from a depicted vibration that coincides with the reflective outer image that you generated, which means that it’s something that you carry inside of yourself that sits there and shapes the way you perceive yourself, and carry yourself, in relationship to life.

In other words, it’s a vibrational force that keeps you in a separate motif, as opposed to, from the first dream, the blueprint, is to go back to basics and let all of it go, and not try to steer it in some fashion, or have any control over it, because what’s needed is the holding of a space so that something can see itself, or understand.

In other words, there’s something about relating to the outer now that creates a distraught condition over one’s demeanor, and when something is awry, instead of it feeding something in terms of opening up other levels and creating a greater overallness and beingness, it is triggering this kind of very strange outer dementia.

m222ultThe ways of this world tend to make us lose our natural connections, because we are born with everything we need already in us. So to reunite with a long lost cousin, in a dream image, is to reconnect with a part of ourselves that had been set aside and forgotten – a higher part of ourselves. In our development journey, we reawaken the connections that we’ve always had in us – that’s why it’s called “awakening,” rather than “finding” or “creating.” So we awaken what we have left behind in our early life processes, and we bring those aspects of ourselves back together – because we need all of our higher parts to be able to make the journey that lies ahead. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: What I remember of the first dream is, it feels like I’m at home where I live with relatives. And it’s like I become aware that a cousin, a male cousin, that I was really close to when I was younger and I thought had died, that actually the family had just separated us because they felt we were too close – and he’s still alive, has been living in Canada or somewhere.

So, he’s going to come and visit. And he comes, and it’s like I just feel in this kind of odd space with him because he was important to me, but I had thought he was gone, and so now it’s like trying to get acquainted, or let someone know where your life is at. And, at the same time, you have an idea of who they were, but you don’t know quite who they are now, or what they think of who you are now.

So there was a certain awkwardness that had been caused by the separation, and trying to kind of find: how do we relate now, compared to how we related then? That’s what I remember of the first dream.

John: What you’re doing is you’re portraying something that has shifted, or changed. And the way your portraying it, is you’re portraying it as if it is something new, that was part of yourself, that you kind of held in an out of sight and out of mind capacity, while you were being and going through life in a particular way.

And now that you have shifted, this is now present as a way of being that you’re now able to relate to, or factor in to, how it is that you see life – which you had stopped doing before. Now it has opened up to you again.

And the thing about the image is that it is still an image of a beingness. In other words, it may be another level of yourself, but it still represents an existence. In other words, it’s not yet a state of non-beingness in which you have totally died before you die. You are, instead, taking on another level, or quality, in an unfolding and an awakening emergence of yourself as a wholeness.

And this part, that had been veiled out, as if it was foreign to you, is now able to be taken in. And what that effect will mean has to be taken into account in some manner, or another. And if what this means is taken into account in some manner or another, that some manner or another will be the new burden upon a heart that is striving to be free of everything, and in nothing but a soul essence of the whole.

silence-and-the-spiritual-journey-sideHouses in dreams often speak of the internal life of the dreamer, and here we have the image of trying to leave one inner space to get to another. And, just like in waking life, it always requires that we let something go as we move toward something new. Yet we’re usually not completely conscious that this is happening, so we can be unsure, or hesitate, as the transition occurs. In times such as these, our dreams can ease the way because they can show us in one image what otherwise might take us weeks or months to sort out in our waking life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My dreams from last night were hard to pull out. I just have a fragment that I recall clearly, and in that fragment it was like at one point I must have been living with a couple that I knew from New York, except in the dream we’re someplace where we’re living almost like in a hut. He had left. The woman is still in the hut, his wife, and I had left the hut and I had gone a ways, about a block or so, to another hut. And it feels like this is a hut through which I can leave.

I want to leave. I wanted to be away from these people, and I didn’t really want them aware that I was going to be away from them, by making a payment to this other person, and the payment I’m making to this other person sitting in her hut it’s like I’ve whittled a stake of some kind and then painted it.

It was like a long stick and I’ve painted some design on it. It was about the shape of like a thing you make fences out of; slat? But it was smaller.

But the man there, either the man or the woman of the couple, I forget which, it feels like they suddenly come by unexpectedly, so it’s like I try to slide what I’ve painted kind of across to this woman so that they don’t even see it. But I feel like they did get a glance at it because whatever I painted, that design I put on there, was kind of my way out. The woman seems to be the one that can give me the passageway out of the village.

And I like her, but I mean I’m giving her whatever I made; that’ll give me my passageway out of the village. But it’s almost like I don’t want the other people to know that I’ve done this, or see what I’ve done. That’s all I really remember.

John: There was no sadness there, was there? Because it sounds like it’s a type of shift, or a transitioning, and you’re shutting down something, or ending something, that had been, which means that that is shriveled to a small hut. And then you’re starting with another small hut but you’re having to take and bring your energy across to that. You’re having to pick up the momentum of that – and the first thing you’re doing is adding color to the situation.

And none of that backfires on you. So it sounds like an image of a transitioning. The reason why one would wonder if there was any sadness would be to see if one was actually running away from a part of themselves, or shutting a part of themselves off, that they shouldn’t be shutting off and trying to make some sort of glorified aspect illusion or something – in which case, if that’s what one was doing, the process would, in spite of appearances, would have a sadness to it, but it doesn’t have a sadness to it. You don’t denote that. Instead it has the whole sensation of making a transition, so you’re shifting.

And they’re both small huts. And it all starts small, whatever you’re shifting to, it’s going to take awhile to get that into something as a greater beingness. And to start off with you’re establishing your space. You take and you’ve got your picket fence, and you’re painting it, and more or less announcing your new presence.

I guess it’s a kind of dream that one would have when one feels that there is some sort of transitioning, when you sense that there’s some sort of transitioning, that you’re having to contend with.

And, of course, the shift you’re trying to make is, you still have the old, and what you’re trying to do is you can’t fully go from the old to the new. You’re trying to hide that, and so whenever you try to suppress or hide something, it still has a quality that drags on you. But to jerk yourself forward, you’re painting and decorating up the new yard of things.

The key is, I guess, the reason for a dream like that, would be to bring yourself to an attention in which you can notice the vibrational changes. To begin with one makes a change and you’re not quite sure what the vibration feels like. And a part of you has a good sense that it makes sense to do this, but you’re not quite convinced, and so you do things to try to make it clearer.

So basically the importance of this dream is it’s a type of dream in which you are going about a process to try to tune in your listening center better. In other words, in manifestation everything vies for the heart. And on the level of listening to how things vie for the heart, in other words, as an aspect of shifting to the world soul where you actually develop the keen true listening, you have to yo-yo back and forth to try to get this clarity that’s outside of yourself to come through.

So until that comes through, in some way, in which you have invisibilized yourself, you’re going through certain motions, energetic motions. And so in terms of your personality and your being you feel a certain thing as an identity, as a differentiation, in terms of something that you need to shift or feel you need to shift away from. It has a hold of you in some fashion that isn’t acceptable in terms of you just evaluating this, in terms of the heart now, which is a type of personal.

So you then make the shift, and then you have to do some things to try to see how it resonates, how it really feels. You’re still playing in a realm of duality as you’re doing this, because you’re working with the heart vibration, but it’s a precursor step to learning how to listen. And the listening that you need to key into is a listening that becomes really amazing. It becomes that way when you are able to take away the dynamic that has to do with an orientation of this, or that, as experienced in the heart, because when you take that quality out so that you are able to then recognize the flow and the vibrations as they exist in the soul level of all of life, you being a part of everything that exists.

If you take yourself out of the equation of seeing yourself in some particular way or another, then your listening center becomes acute and is more acute in an unfolding wholeness. But there are stages. You might say that there are stages of the heart, which is having things vie for it in terms of a sorting out way, that’s important to trying to find, you know, from a perception of manifestation orientation, it’s important in terms of trying to find what the proper cadence needs to be in that way of being.

It becomes important that you start to notice that you’re torn back and forth, that you’re suppressing things in order to exemplify something else. As you do this at some particular point whatever it is that you reach for, you have to let go of, too, because you realize that you’re still playing with the dynamics of a kind of possessiveness or physical orientation.

So you’re dreaming this whole kind of energetic mannerism like this, only in your case the dream is like a precursor step. Your last stages of a quality of vying back and forth and reorienting yourself and juggernauting between this hut and that hut, are kind of like steps on the way into accepting a greater wholeness. And you’re trying to get it so that you can hear it better by decorating the picket fence and everything, but it’s still being heard in a peripheral way. That’s an interesting dream, huh?
