An Earthy Way

All energy seeks a path to travel. We ground our electrical systems so that the path that excess energy chooses to travel is away from us. In our connected life, our spiritual processes attract higher energies, but if we don’t ground those energies through our conscious and unconscious processes, they will continue to move through us with unintended consequences, perhaps triggering emotions or defense mechanisms. When we ground higher energy we are giving it a safe passage into life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So what I remember of the dream is I felt like I had this long dream, and it felt like Jen from our group was in the dream, nearby. And I seem to be in a space, it was kind of a golden, mellow space. 

And I guess the best way I can remember it is I felt like I was getting some kind of body work, and that body work almost caused a certain kind of rocking sensation, plus there was this golden light around. And there were different ways of getting the body work, with different vibrations. 

And I seem to be discussing that with Jen, because there’d be the one scene and I was getting the body work in a way with the golden light, and it felt like a certain level of penetration could happen then; a certain shift could happen. And then if you saw the same scene, but you were getting the body work done in a different way, it had a different effect. 

So I seem to be discussing that with Jen, in terms of how or what you got, or how you got it. And the better way to get it, or what it did. And that’s all I remember. It was more of a sensation dream than anything.

John: Well, what was going on yesterday, in terms of the dream world, was working with the elements. I worked with the water element, and you’re trying to work with the body element. 

So what you’re doing is you’re working with the earth element that has to do with grounding. You’re trying to understand the aspects and the principles of grounding, something in an earthy way.

For the feminine, manifestation is her domain, in that there is the aspect of soul and all of its qualities embedded in manifestation. In other words, there’s the light embedded in matter. And if you’re properly grounded, if you’re wonderfully grounded, you can tend to pull it in from within the depths of like the groundwire effect to things, you could pull in the light from above. 

You see this pulling in of the light from above in areas that require a person to have to deal with the earth element really, really directly. For example, that is accentuated in the Far North. And so where they have to deal with the earth element of things really, really directly like if you were from Alaska, or something, where you had to be a little bit like a Native American and you had to live off the land, and chew the tallow of fat and whatnot to get energy. In other words, finding yourself really rooted to things. 

The whole reason for the phenomenon is to bring a person to the recognition that rootedness, being grounded physically, is really, really important in terms of pulling down things. And the pulling down of things is the holding of a presence. And, in the holding of that presence, you find that you have an awareness, a natural knowingness, that comes up from this way of being. 

And so what you were doing is you both work with a type of principle of body work. In other words, you use something as an aspect of a rootedness, of a presence of yourself, in order to work with the things that are misaligned in terms of people. You both do this in a slightly different way. You both work with the Kundalini energy in a slightly different way, but incorporate the rootedness of the earthiness of things in order to see it through.

The Checklist

We all have set patterns and ways of doing things, but we don’t always understand that those repetitions can help us generate into a specific alignment and intention. But it is always the idea and the intention that comes first, so as one becomes a skilled practitioner of life, the need for the repetition diminishes and the intention can create the desired effect. This is what development enables. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I just remember one dream, and, in that dream I seem to be trying to figure out how to get one acupuncture treatment. And I feel like there’s even a way to do it energetically. 

But I feel like when I go to consult with the person that I would want to get the treatment from, that I know that my problem is that everybody’s used to doing acupuncture treatments in series of tens. And they’re all used to doing it with needles. And I just can’t figure out how to convince someone that actually one treatment is going to work. And then maybe you can even do this treatment without needles. 

And there is at least one person I talked to, but I realize that people just don’t get that if you try to do something differently than how they’re used to doing, they don’t think it can be done. And I can’t quite figure out how to get it done. I’m talking to somebody about how it can be done energetically, but I realize that I can’t seem to break through people’s concepts of how something is done, or has to be done. And so I just get frustrated with that; how am I going to do that?

John: So the key to understanding this dream is to understand what the theme was meant to be last night. And the theme that existed last night had to do with being able to be in life, in all of its different multiplicity ways, without having to be set in any particular way. 

You looked at it in terms of how to let go of things, as a type of letting go in terms of a presence. And you’re finding that, in life, everyone has a tendency to have adopted a particular pattern that they maintain over and over again. And, because of this pattern, they fail to see what is obvious in front of them.

They’ve gotten into this pattern, and so this pattern becomes the dictum to how something is, and you have a sense that there’s something more, much more, behind it all. And that this is something that is not in any kind of specific defined way, that you don’t have to go through some sort of set, over and over, defined protocol – that you can just let go and experience it energetically. 

In other words, it’s as if everyone else feels that there is some sort of defined outer way that something is done in order to create an invisible effect. And you are of the recognition and view that it’s not the act itself that does it, it’s the energetic behind the act, behind it all, that does it. And if you hit that energetic, that’s all that’s needed. 

The activities in the outer, where everyone has 10 steps or something like that that they think of as a checklist will get them to what they desire as a solution. And that’s something that you realize will never lead to a solution because it just solidifies into some other aspected way of being. 

And you know that what has to be done has to take place in a sense that is invisible, energetically invisible. That’s a statement of the feminine, in terms of her presence in existence. She knows how to not let things stick in a way that creates a discombobulation from our standpoint of attitude or judgment or mannerism. And so it’s a quality of not leaving traces, in terms of being able to hold oneself in an overallness. 

So this quality of being able to be invisible, a feminine trait, is offset by a masculine trait, which is the quality of a natural catching up with a knowingness, where you just have a sense of what is and you’re not continually having to figure out how to peel back to figure out what is. You just have a natural sense in which you know things. 

So the feminine trait is to let go of the mannerisms of a checklisted unfoldment, and know how to invisiblize oneself. The whole idea was, how do you go about when you move through life? What is the way? What is the right adab or mannerism for doing so? And so you dreamt what that is like in the accentuated feminine, and I dreamt what it was like in the accentuated masculine.

The Surrender

When we surrender, who, or what, are we surrendering to? Through our dreams we can sometimes be shown that a first level of surrender is between our lower self and our higher self. The lower self has more ego and is more concerned with planetary matters. The higher self holds a higher alignment to our design and greater purpose. Each aspect of our lower self that we can surrender to the higher self is an act of inner healing, which can free us to our higher destiny. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In another dream, I go to an attorney for guidance in a process. What concerns me is a definition that will cause a dense stiffness of the flow. In other words, that’s the issue. So I’ve gone to an attorney for help. 

So as I am sitting in an office, wondering how to overcome this kind of denseness, because, you know, when you go to an attorney you are carrying the denseness as if another can help you and whatnot, which I am feeling in the atmosphere that I am in, a secretary indicates that the attorney who will be taking on my case follows the process and then mentions a particular person.

Well, I happen to know this person, and I know this person knows how to open everything wide open. And so I’m greatly relieved that we’re not going to go into a defined shrink or something of some sort. 

So, in other words, what this tells me is that the openness of the heart I seek is readily possible, and the contractiveness I fear is not going to be an issue (the contractiveness that I’m carrying, yet, as I come in).

And then, in another short little dream, I take a particular dark-energied object; that’s what I do. In this dream I take a particular dark, embodied object, in other words, it’s a darkness that’s already set that way, and I bring it to an altar for healing. And it’s done in a way, and it’s received in a way, as if this is food. 

So it is understood that the surrendering of this results in the removal of a barrier. And that’s the reason why you bring the darkness the way you do. The act, therefore, is that of a letting the heart absolve the darkness. I thought in my last dream that I was gonna be repeating something that I’d already said before, but I hadn’t actually said it.
