spiritual-life-coaching-2It is common for us to think, or believe, that we can sort everything out with our brain. But, on our spiritual journey, it doesn’t work that way. Our spiritual life requires the all of us, and comes from inner into outer in life. Connections are made, and pathways are opened up, from the inside, and only then can we truly connect with the outer world. That’s why it has been said that our journey is more about feeling than thinking, because we learn over time to realize when we are connected and when we are not – and that comes from the subtlety of our feeling senses.

Jeane: The next dream, the only part that I remember it’s like I’ve gotten together with some family, or friends, and we want to go see my great niece, and her husband, though I seem to be just about their age in the dream, fairly young.

And it must be around the holidays, and they’re at somebody else’s house, so I go with the people that I’m with. And I realize they also want to hook me up with somebody there, because of some common goal we have in mind, like maybe we both want to lose weight or something, we want to do something. So I go with them to this house, and it’s kind of an odd house when you walk in because you go into an upstairs area like a building. It’s like a building at first, like you go into an upstairs area, and then you come to a place that’s almost like a turnstile that’s kind of blocked.

And I start to move something and go that way, and then I change my mind and I go down to the left and that leads me downstairs through the house, and to an outside area, where there’s some picnic tables and that’s where my niece and her husband are – and their friend that everybody’s trying to hook me up with.

So he’s a young man. He’s sitting kind of like on a picnic table, so I must go over and I sit either on a bench or on the ground, not too far from where he is, so that he and I can talk. And it feels like other people disappear, and it feels like he’s kind of interested in our connecting because of some common goal we have that people feel, if we were together, it would be easier to meet that goal. And I seem to be the one that I’m not so sure about this. That was the whole dream, as I recall it.

John: So you’re still playing with this aspect of something that is resourced, so to speak, at a depth inside of yourself, and that it sits there oriented in a way that is blood-lined, or family oriented, or something like that. In other words, there was the greater dimension of yourself that seeks to pull things together.

And that even so, you have that as a frame of reference upon which to lean on, and grow with, and of course that sort of thing helps you get outside of your insecurities and whatnot because you have a basis upon which to lean, and be, which is you, but you have presented to you in the outer in this way because you seem to be better able to live something when it is like that.

Well, there’s still this other dormant quality, or trait, that needs to come out. And so it’s hidden even when you are in the house. In other words, there’s the turnstile. In other words, it’s just not readily there.

But when you come to understand that, in other words, when you go into and do a little in-depthness and come back outside into life, with all of this aspect of yourself working together, in other words it’s like you can come into life and sort it out. I mean you know how to scrutinize and be okay, and not let the mess of what can happen by the little illusions of things, you can clean all of that up, because you have this greater sense.

There’s still more that needs to come out, however, and that more that needs to come out has a designed purpose behind it. And you’re coming to realize that that comes out in relationship to, again, a certain way of you coming to grips with a wholeness in your environment.

In other words, in terms of the guidance of the dream, you’re functioning in terms of it awakening, or coming about, a little differently than me. I have to take and plow around in the dark, and fumble and look for the variable of something that comes through insightfully. In your particular case, you just need to be in an environment in which that is conducive.

In other words, there’s something about the way you carry yourself then, that causes you to be in an environment conducive with how you are, and when that environment, that is conducive to how it is that you need to be in order to be free to allow something to emerge, then it emerges.

In other words, it works a little different for you. You are like the frog, plop in the pond. You’re just in that and it just naturally emerges. And your dream is indicating that there is something that naturally emerges as the circumstances of yourself, as manifestation, in manifestation, as those circumstances emerge, you emerge in terms of your greater beingness. That’s interesting. It doesn’t work that way for me, but it does that way for the feminine, huh?

We don’t usually consider how we “give” ourselves away. But we do, we give ourselves away to situations at work, we give ourselves away in relationships between family, friends, and lovers. We give ourselves away to the pressures of the culture and our local environment – even through social media. And what this means is that we compromise what we stand for, or strive to uphold, in ourselves. To make a spiritual journey, we must stop giving ourselves away to things because it is fundamental to personal development that we become a safety for the universe, and that begins with providing a safety for ourselves.

Jeane: I just remember little glimpses of last night’s dreams. It’s like they disappear really fast when I look at them, or try to remember them.

In one of them, I seem to have gone with a group of people to a building. In the back of the building you can go out and I think there’s horse racing going on. In the front of the building, or the first room, where I’m with some other people I think there’s some food being served.

And I look down and I notice that I have a little mouse with me, very tiny. I think it’s a mouse, anyway it’s something. And you know maybe some people would give it away or something, but I realize that it’s so tiny that even if it has to go to the bathroom it makes such a tiny mess I can just wrap a little tissue paper around it and put it in my pocket.

So it feels like because of that I’m kind of keeping it with me. It’s really cute. And then I’m going up to the counter and it feels like I get something at the counter, and then I go into the back room where I think that’s where you can kind of go out to the horse races, or place a bet on the horse races. And that’s all I remember from that first dream.

John: So what do you think the mouse is?

Jeane: I don’t know. It was awfully cute.

John: So the theme of the dreaming last night had to do with taking and recognizing that there’s more to how we are than we are inclined to think, or believe. And that the inclination is to take things that are happening around you and just respond as if that’s what it’s all about, in other words, literally speaking, but everything that happens around and about you has a deeper meaning to it in terms of how it is, and who it is, you are. And that if you take something too literally, you’re going to miss that treasure of yourself.

And so the dream throws you into kind of a collective, in which you have the eating, and the horse racing, and all of the activities going on, but it’s indicating that you can be okay in that. Other people cannot necessarily be okay in that; they lose themselves to that whole process. But you have carefully taken into account an ability… well, like the symbol of a mouse is scrutiny. You have that quality to where you can be involved in all of that, and not lose yourself, and you can be involved in all of that and hold onto yourself.

Now the deeper schematic behind all of that is that something has gotten lost. I mean you have the horse racing, and the eating, and all of this stuff going on, the whole collective going on, I should say the whole unspoken question, is something is missing? And that would be true if you reacted, and you dealt only with that which is going on in the collective around you.

But you have the means to sort, and understand, and take it into a proper account because you have this capacity that you have not given away, that you carry as a depth inside of yourself. And so you keep things in the proper perspective.

Lucid-DreamingIt’s a curious thing to consider the idea of feeling tired in a dream, because usually we can operate more quickly, travel greater distances, and take on more obstacles, in a dream, than we can in real life. So this image, which shows the dreamer wanting to stay home because she feels tired, points out how the undercurrents of our dreams reveal the energies and connections that are available to us for what we need to do. By seeing our state portrayed through a dream image, perhaps some problems can be avoided in waking life because we have been given advance knowledge.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember my second dream, which was brief. And in it, it feels like I’m outside a childhood home, actually, where a friend used to live, but in the dream it seems to be my home. And I’m with a couple of Native American men, and there’s a conference or some kind of a meeting I’m going to be going to.

But I get into the car, and I realize it’s evening, and that I’m tired, and I decide that I’m not going to go – but I’ll loan them one of my cars. I seem to have three cars. So we go back to the garage and I’m kind of indicating which car it would be best for them to take, because there are three cars but I feel like there’s one that’s better. But I’m going to stay behind because I felt like I needed to rest, and it’s evening. But I’m going to send them on ahead.

John: It’s kind of a disconcerting dream, don’t you think?

Jeane: Yeah.

John: In that you’re in the midst of something that’s evolving, and yet it’s overwhelming for you, or you’re seeing yourself as being too tired. In other words, there’s something about you that’s holding back, in a remiss capacity, from participating in what is unfolding.

And it’s also kind of an information dream, and it indicates that something more needs to quicken in your nature because you’re right there, and yet the difference between taking that next step, or not, has to do with an attentiveness to an energetic, of which, in the dream, you’re saying that you do not have that attentiveness. And so you’re staying back.

Isn’t that a disconcerting dream? That’s a kind of dream that’s a little bit like a holy terror dream, in that sometimes a little holy terror is kind of good to stimulate something, because the dream is not saying that you’re blowing it – because you’re there, in the midst of that. I mean, you’ve got the components around you. It’s just that something is just not quite able to take a step, because what is missing is an awakening within in which there is more energy.

That’s interesting, isn’t it? And so, like I say, it’s like a holy terror information dream from the standpoint that it’s like a tease, in which there’s the implication that you can be right there and still decide to step aside, based upon seeing yourself as exhausted, or worn out. It’s almost like something laughing at you. Isn’t it?

Jeane: Yeah.

John: So the significant thing is to ponder what it is that you’re being poked fun at, in terms of some way that you’re right there, and are able to acknowledge, or denote, something that you’re not quite doing.
