In 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. (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 November 2015.
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.
