myy6Here the dreamer sees men in strange flying objects shooting at one another. And the masculine, as an energetic principle, begins “off the ground,” while the feminine principle is grounded. So the imagery speaks of a battle that is being waged on the inner levels. And the feminine is meant to ground things in life that are sparked into existence by the masculine. Until something is grounded it stays an energetic, but the process of being human is to bring energies into the physical realms. So this is a process we all do, naturally, and the dream is showing the process as it struggles to find a resolution to any resistance.

Jeane: In the next dream, initially I’m in junior high and high school. I think I had a boyfriend in junior high, but at some point I left him and now it’s like high school or right after high school.

And I’ve gone to the beach with a boyfriend. I think it’s another boyfriend. We’re out on this kind of vast sand beach. He’s over to one side and I start looking up at the sky and, as I look up there, I notice a kind of strange flying object. And as it turned slightly I see that there’s a man with a gun, a rifle, that’s hanging out of the doorway of this strange flying object, and that it’s chasing another flying object that looks like a car that’s flying with another man with a rifle in it.

And meanwhile I go over in the sand and, at a distance from me in the sand, I actually have a dresser drawers. I go over and I open it up, and in one drawer instead of clothes maybe some bubblegum or something that had dropped at some point, so there are all these tiny, tiny ants are swarming the whole drawer. They almost seem to be in the air around you as you open it, so I shut it, and I realize I’m going to have to do something to clean out the whole dresser drawers or anything in them, and so I’ve gone back over to the side.

Meanwhile, I look up at the sky again, and the one person in the little faster flying vehicle that has fired at the other one. It’s like the other one got away from him, so suddenly he comes down and lands on the sand and grabs me. And then there’s somebody with him, and then I think he thinks that, you know, I can’t really help him at all because, you know, these are people that fly around in the sky and shoot at each other.

So he starts to leave but then he and somebody else they come back and they grab me, and they start looking at the back of first one of my hands and then the other. They were looking for some mark that denoted a certain genius or something, so I kind of joke with them that they’re looking at the wrong person here, but there was some sand covering the back of my hand so he starts brushing off the sand and he sees something there that he does find interesting. It might not have been what he was originally looking for, but he finds something else that’s interesting.

So I’m kind of a little agitated by this because of the feeling that maybe, you know, they’re going to try to take me somewhere, or they might take me with them, but I seem to walk away because then I find myself preoccupying again about how to clean the chest of drawers.

John: The dream is basically saying that there’s a part of the way that you continue to hold out, or feel yourself, that causes you then to look and direct your attention into the outer. And when you look and direct your attention in the outer, because the way your feeling yourself needs to be somehow or another corresponded to an aspect of something in a manifested way, you actually go away from the imprint of your being – which is an innerness, of which you still have the semblance, the echo.

But when you look out actually all of this being a continued stemming from the space of an attention upon how it is that you’re holding onto something deep down inside, and not letting go of, so as a consequence for that to live itself out it has you looking out to try to manifest it and, in doing that, you end up losing the light. You end up with the masculine principle of being off the ground, and that things are fighting and going at it. In other words, there is a dynamic, then, that is outside of yourself.

Now somehow you know that you need to pull this inside of yourself, so that that quality does come down, and take and look at yourself and look at you, but you have to take that in. It’s kind of like the woodcutter story. The woodcutter abandoned everything in terms of going into his hut and closing all of his shades inside the hut and just sitting and sitting quietly. Somehow or another he knew that in just sitting something more could happen.

And one day he started to notice that there was like a light coming out of him, and he thought well this is interesting. You know he’s sitting in this dark house with all the shades pulled and there’s a light coming out of him. So he is curious how this works, so he decides to partially open one of the shades and, as he peers out, animals sense the light, they come around, and as he peers out he noticed that the light diminishes.

So he goes back and he sits and he reaccesses this quality where he’s putting everything back into the heart again, and the light gets brighter. And so then he decides to open more shades and look out, and he even sees humans and other things now, but as soon as he sees them and as soon as he tries to bring those into focus, the light, the clarity, the inflection of an inner essence inside of himself, that’s reflected as a light, that’s portrayed as a type of light, diminishes again.

So finally he realizes that what’s important is this light and so he just goes and he sits. He doesn’t take and have to try to use his physical senses to try to make the light happen. The light doesn’t happen that way.

What this story portrays is that what he is actually doing is he is allowing everything to exist inside of his heart, and it can’t exist inside of his heart if he has projections outside of himself, if he’s looking with the senses and trying to come from what he has a sense of inside and throw it into the outer. That then dulls and diminishes and shorts the light out. So he realizes that when he sits and goes somewhere, and is somewhere else deep inside of himself, his ability to be really deep inside of himself has a whole lot to do with how he’s able to let everything come in. Everything sees itself. A consciousness emerges.

Everybody is doing it trying to sort things out with their senses and their mind. It’s in the allowing something to reside inside of yourself, and that’s where these little parables come up. In other words, to begin with you may come to see the outer as an illusion, and so instead of it being you and me, it’s just me. And then eventually you disappear yourself, and when you’ve done that, then it is just you – meaning something else – and then that something else inside of your heart held in a place without any story to it because you don’t have any story of yourself, that is where love is at, and that is where God is at.

You have the illusionary inflection of something that’s created. Everything in the outer is created for the benefit of something else to be able to have an experience of itself through it, and so if what is created, in other words if man goes out and tries to perceive everything that’s out there and take that in as if he can read through the illusion, he’s getting it backwards. Instead, man, who is a composite of everything that there is in every regard in the outer, he’s made out of all of that because he is that, if man can just then quit looking out and can instead put everything inside of himself – but he doesn’t put it inside of himself.

What happens is is he actually takes himself out of the equation so that he hears nothing about him that interferes, or interrupts, or disturbs and thus things can come to see themselves by existing inside of a human being. Otherwise they can’t see themselves. A human being having any kind of cognition of trying to do this, or to do that, that’s backwards. The right way of doing it is to get into an empty enough space so that everything is able to mirror by being able to exist inside of a heart of a human being. In other words, there is no “me” anymore. There’s just that, and that, then, is God. That’s another way, a closer way, of describing what God is.

And so in your dream, what you’re doing is you’re still carrying, you’re still projecting, something in terms of a way you want to feel yourself. And this way that you want to feel yourself then has to manifest, and that’s what manifestation is all about is to give you a means so that it can occur. And so when you have this and you don’t let go of it then you are still looking in terms of how to maximize; you’re looking into the outer, because you don’t realize that you can sit back and be holding all of it inside of yourself, that and everything else.

But you can only do that if you have an emptiness, but if you have something that is banging around as a doingness, as something that needs to be, then you start looking out, and then if you’re truthful to yourself, what you see is that that creates just nothing but stress. That’s just a conflict.

In other words, in your image of what you see, you see a type of strife, which means that you recognize, some part of you acknowledges in your higher self, that this tears you down. And your higher self seems to know, or have a bit of an echo towards, how it is done so that when you take a step back it’s as if the issues out there take a time out, and come and evaluate you in terms of something about you as a beingness that intonates something. In other words, because that other is an aliveness that’s been created in the illusion of things, and you carry something that’s like a faint memory where they can see the mark or this, that, or the other upon which there is a sense of something that can go more deeply, outside of having to go through the machinations of activity, of reactivity, of indulgence. That’s an awful interesting way to dream.

rainbow-spiral-vortex2If we believe in higher things, then we have to view the physical universe as a place where energies come to refine and change. So where does the human fit in to this? Well, human beings are the greatest refiners of energies in the universe: we can change anger into compassion, we can create music from a feeling, we can turn judgment into healing. Those processes, when they are done consciously and with intention, are a pathway to elevating and refining the universe we are in.

Jeane: Okay, in my second dream I’ve gone to spend the night with my friend Joan and we’re all fairly young. We’re like in our 20s or something, late 20s, and I’m with an uncle and a cousin. This is a male cousin, and actually my uncle in the outer is deceased and my male cousin died in Vietnam in his early 20s, but in the dream they’re both alive.

They’ve gone with me to visit my friend at her house that she has, and it’s in the country. I’m spending the night, but my uncle and cousin are going to be leaving. But they’re helping pick up a bit before they leave, but they don’t seem to know where some things go because some clothes have to be sorted when you pick them up, or some things are put away and other things need to be put in the laundry. And because they don’t quite know how to sort, I’m taking over the sorting.

I’m also aware that my cousin has a girlfriend, but she’s not there right now, and I’m aware that my friend also has a guy she’s really caring about right now who’s also not there. As we’re getting ready to leave, I’m going to be sleeping the night in a loft bed, but I’ve come down from there when I realized the guys didn’t know really how to sort or pick up right. So I’m doing the sorting, and the picking up, and we’ve all gone outside for a few minutes.

My cousin’s talking to me a little bit because he and his girlfriend are going to be going to college, and they’re going to be traveling to a certain town, and we’re sorting out whether they’re going somewhere that I’ve been before, or visited, or that I know where it is.

And then when my friend comes out she’s talking a bit about a boyfriend, and I realize my cousin would probably disapprove of her boyfriend because I see these three record albums, like old 78 or 33 record albums, and I realize the boyfriend is one of the men on the covers, and he’s a famous conductor, and he’s quite a bit older than she is. And I realize my cousin or his dad would probably disapprove of this, but I realize she really likes him, he’s a musician, he’s kind of very accomplished.

I, immediately, when I look at the three pictures, I know which one he is, and then I’m standing there for a minute because I realize I knew someone else that had been in a relationship with him – but I can’t remember who it is. But I’m trying to, because I’ve made the connection, and she won’t care. But it’s like I want to know, or be able to convey something, but I can’t remember who it was. That was the dream.

John: So, in this dream, you have all of these parts of yourself that have a little gap, and it’s this gap that creates the sensation of process in which there’s an alignment that has to occur.

And so, in the journey, the journey that you’re on where you’re going and visiting your friend, it’s not complete – because even your friend is somebody that isn’t there. And then those that you’re with all have somebody that isn’t there.

But the dream gets closer towards a completion in that you’re able to, instead of this gap being something that you just have to contend with, that has to do with an alignment opening up inside yourself that pulls the energy together so that you can be in a total stillness, instead of some abstractions that still seem to be involved in the process of unfoldment.

In the end you come to the point where you have inflections on those memories of something before. And those memories of something before, even though you experience it as a memory of something before, as if it is a deeper past recollection, is actually an aspect of pulling something into the present. The sensation is of it as an awareness of something that had been, and you can even look at it as something that had been, but the whole orientation that is creating the gap for alignment purposes has an attention that is to the past – and yet you do not complete something looking to the past.

And everyone incorporates, through their impressions and such, through their way of seeing, how it is that they think that they’re unfolding, or that something has unfolded, or how something is. That is all a perspective in the journey in the outer. That’s all a perspective that is relating to something that has already happened – in terms of the senses – that is in an outer orientation, and is of the past.

But when you have a memory, even though that memory of how something is, and that memory that appears to be of the past is actually pulling an energy together of the future. If you were to do that in each and every one of those aspects of yourself, if you were to do that, then the dream would progress into a quality of letting go in which something could be, and can be, then changed or reformed, and that is like a going forward, that is like a future. That is like an end.

You have to go through all of that which has those little gaps, and let go, and quit trying to figure those out, or to process that out. That is the alignment, and it’s an alignment that lets everything fall away, as described in the first dream, as you allow yourself to be cradled in a stillness. And then all of that stuff then clicks; it heals and clicks. And then something is able to open up in a reformable… then you’re able to participate.

The reformer element, this third aspect, is able to be involved, then, in what is unfolding. It does this all through the beginning and the end working together. The grasping of something at the inception, which is extremely important because you have to take that will, or whatever it is, of the ordered principle of things, and then you have to let go of all of the doingness, all of those gaps, you have to get all of that aligned. No questions, just a letting go, and then the action that’s able to unfold, instead of just the journey, is something then that opens up and rapports with, in an unfolding way, because the journey is the illusion, too.

The journey is the sorting out. The journey is the misalignment. The journey is the confusion. The journey is in which you go through all of the episodes of things as if they’re real in the outer, and some aspect of that, on the inner journey, the journey going back towards God, is still a continuation of something that is getting aligned to the one thing that is going on, which is the stillness. And a stillness that has the will involved behind it, that is a knowingness of what is going on, and what is meant to be.

But a knowingness in which, when you come across this at the beginning, it’s more like an observation in terms of yourself because you’re in the stillness, and you’re able to observe it, a total emptiness and stillness. If there’s any noise, or any racket, or anything going on you can’t get it; it’s not something that you hear, per se. It’s something that moves inside you.

But that movement, that motion inside of you, causes you, in the middle part, to become process oriented, and lots of problems in the process orientation. And then when you come at the end of the process orientation or, in this case, where you have all of the things that are gapped out brought together, all of the energetics brought together, in terms of yourself, you have a wholeness in which, then, something then actually is able to unfold.

The impression or the statement of there being like a light bulb moment, or an epiphany, is an epiphany that has a quality of a kind of action out of the stillness behind it, and that’s the building-block quality that comes across, comes through.

ima097gesDo our dreams reflect our life, or does our life reflect our dreams. You could say the scenarios of both types of stories unfold in ways that help us grow, and provide opportunities for us to get what we need to learn or understand. And in that process, what we generate from within ourselves is usually a form of creating a release of something that we already have in us as a capability, but it just needs the circumstance and effort to release it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember the one dream. In this dream I’m with a man, I’ve like traveled with him to somewhere in the south where his family lives where we’re staying at a house where his brother is.

I don’t remember as much about that, except sometimes going into a room that we stayed in and at some point it dawns on me that while I’m thinking about, you know, when we’re going to leave and come back where I live and everything, that he really wants us to stay and live down there. And, although I don’t particularly want to do that, and he hasn’t really talked about any of the details of it yet, I’m trying to figure out what to do about that because it’s like if he’s staying there I have to figure out, even if I wanted to leave, you know, how to get back, which means I probably need to go get a job or something, or maybe I need to go get a job anyway, if I’m going to stay there.

I have a feeling I don’t really want to live there a long time, and maybe his thought is we’d be living with his brother or his family, too, and I’m not awfully happy with that thought. But I decide, you know, maybe I need to go look around and see about a job.

It feels like I go down to this resort and I look around, and I see it’s a resort that has a couple levels to it. And this town has one main street where everything happens and maybe it’s along a river or something and it’s southern, and when I go into this motel I go downstairs in the motel where people stay, and then upstairs there’s lots of activity and I notice that they serve them cookies in some of the areas at night, too, although some of the cookies are burnt because I go and look at them.

And I run into somebody that I used to know and, as part of her work there at the motel, she sometimes gives massages to people that are staying there. And I’m thinking, well, I could do that. You know, I have some experience with massage, but not a lot. But it doesn’t really require a professional, and I seem to be kind of heavyset in this dream, and I’m looking around at what I’m wearing, and I’m wondering what other things I could do, and I think about maybe some of the agencies in town, and what experience do I have that would translate? Because I don’t necessarily have any of my credentials and stuff with me, but I do have experience.

And I look at some of the people that are staying at the hotel, I finally go and find the people that are running it, and we start having a dialogue about what I might be able to do. And I realize that they like that I’d grown up in a family business because that means that maybe I’d be trustworthy around handling the money, or at least know what’s involved, that you have to do a lot of multitasking. That’s about all I remember. It wasn’t a very exciting dream.

John: Well, two-thirds of the dream was the endeavor to try to figure out how to take something that needed to awaken, and bring it through.

And the first part of the dream had to do with it being imbedded in kind of needing to somehow or another find a means of being able to release. And so when you have that sense, the feminine has that sense, it needs to reach a point whereby something processes, or comes out, or flows as a type of coming out.

In other words, the feminine nature seeks something all the time as kind of a latent quality knowing that it has to connect, or be connected, in life by way of something that comes up from the depths of itself and flows. In other words, it’s meant to be a container energy that is in flow, or in harmony, with the outer.

If that nature is required to sit in an unfulfilled capacity, deep down inside it is always looking for a means to find a release whereby something then is able to go back, or plug in. The sensation is an in-breath sensation, an in-breath sensation that is held in check by basically a dullness or something, that exists in the nature of living in an illusionary state. The Kundalini energy of something at a depth with inside, that goes through that dilemma, involves the energy having to rise up, having to be released, so to speak, from its imbedded state in manifestation.

That’s the nature, and that’s the means of the feminine flow – and that’s an in-breath. And prior to hitting that, you were hitting a state in which there was a type of frustration at the beginning of the dream because something more needed to happen, and then you spent the rest of the dream figuring out how to create that release.
