John: I keep dreaming that there is a dominant, inner expression that dictates the outer life. This is an influence that is familiar, deep within my natural frame of reference. However, the loudness of everything else – the superficial – drowns out this effect over the short run. 

So this influence silently dictates the overall way things unfold, even though it’s not readily apparent in the outer.

In one image, I see this inner expression represented as a skeletal frame that holds things together. The outer features are what I notice at first, and am apt to be swayed by – like the skin and the flesh on this frame – on a moment-by-moment basis. As a result, the controlling feature in life (the inner expression) takes a backseat to everything else in the outer environment. Or so it seems, even though in the long run the skeletal backbone to life is what ultimately wins out.

In other words, what I saw is this skeletal structure, and it comes all the way down to the ground. So there’s something about the structure that makes an energetic connection to everything that’s rooted in creation. Then the shell, the body, the flesh, and the skin on it is what people pay attention to, it’s what they see, so they’re not aware that there is an aliveness to the structure that actually dictates what is meant to be and how things are to unfold.  

Everyone is paying attention to what is more apparent or obvious, i.e., the denser, outer layer, which is just the wrapper, or the exterior of the skeletal structure. So people base their choices and actions according to appearances, because that’s the easiest to sense and to see.

In other words, the invisible skeletal structure carries the energetic or vibration of what’s meant to be, not the skin and the flesh and everything else that’s visible. But it’s the outer, visible layer that has a loudness that captures the senses, and draws everyone’s attention.

Of course, in the long run, what wins out, in terms of what is meant to be, is determined by the skeletal structure.

Isn’t that a strange image?

So in this dream I feel fortunate in knowing what is actually affecting what manifests in the outer. It’s a wonderful feeling of relief to know that there is inner guidance, determined or destined to come to the forefront of my being.

First of all, I sense this in a fairly general way, but then I realize that my attention is drawn more to the skeletal structure than it is to the outer layers. I do not readily grasp this.

I can feel it and I can know it, but I lose sight of this knowing when I’m caught up in some situation that requires my immediate attention. Even then, when I’m unable to hold onto an inner balance, I’m comforted in a subconscious way with knowing that there is the essence of what is meant to be, like it’s waiting for me to go there, to look there.

In the dream, because I’ve made the choice to have the inner framework to life dictate how I’m meant to live, even my mistakes and detours are simply guided and shaped into what is intended. I find that amazing.

In other words, as I fumble about it’s almost like something else is directing me because whatever I’m doing is being transformed somehow. It’s affected. Sometimes I suffer when this happens, but at other times my input is redirected and guided to bring out the intended inner effect.

I come to know and trust this inner expression, even though it’s not visible; for me it is just as real as what is visible. What is visible in the outer is there for appearances only. I’ve become able to see the deeper thread of things, beyond the noisy surface.

This cannot be said, however, for my coarser nature that is still dominated by the appearances of the outer world, fed only by the physical senses.

What I’m describing is a subtle awakening, of my consciousness, to that which lies deep within my nature. It gives me joy each time I’m able to break through the outer barriers and be touched by this inner essence, which waits patiently for me to attune myself to its existence at the core of my being.

Jeane: The best way to describe my dream – because it went on for a long time – is that I was in a kingdom where there had been some sort of coup; someone had taken over from what was there before.

There were a number of forces running wild, still trying to take over certain areas, and some of them used magic. I never knew who was a friend or a foe. I had to keep moving fairly rapidly, trying to identify who might be okay, and trying to decide which energy to reinforce. It was really a rather perverse society. 

The term that kept coming to mind is that this was a society that would eat its own young. So I had to stay sharp and stay on the move all the time, and look for allies but never be quite sure if I could really trust them, or if someone might be watching or even coming down from the sky to cause havoc.

I remember going into a room, somewhere that I’d been before, and I had to retrieve something. There was a workman in the room doing something to the polished oak floor. They had taken the foundation out from under the floor, so I’m not sure if the boards are going to hold when I have to cross from one end of the room to the other.

There’s something I had to get in either the bathroom or the kitchen, so I just do my best to rapidly cross the floor and hope it holds. Then I leave because, again, I’m having to stay on the move and keep my eye out because I’m looking for alliances to build towards creating something that’s better, but I really just don’t know whom I can trust.

John: So what do you think the inspiration for that dream was?

Jeane: Coming to Las Vegas, for sure.

John: Okay, so how is coming to Las Vegas causing you to being on the move? I’m not sure what that’s trying to say. Is it trying to say that you’re going to be able to fix something that way, or are you just aware that everything is affected?

Jeane: I’m not sure myself. It was a strange dream.

John: What was the last part again?

Jeane: I had to retrieve something. And then I’m looking for alliances, and I go into homes and I’m looking but I just don’t trust anything yet.

John: Yes, you’re trying to pull something together out of…

Jeane: There are forces there that are helpful, but they’re hard to find.

John: Yes, it’s interesting in the sense that you realize that there’s something to be appreciated, even with all the chaos that exists. It’s something that’s latent in terms of what’s there below the surface. It’s kind of like…

Jeane: Everything was in chaos, and there was magic being used and misused.

John: Ah, in other words, misuse. So you’re seeing a lot of misuse in terms of the glamorous surface of things. I never thought of it that way. That’s probably what became of Atlantis, where there was this great Mecca, but it degenerated into all kinds of misuse that caused the defiling of something sacred.

Jeane: But underneath that, there were other forces that I felt were trying to work in another direction – so I was trying to find those.

John: And so there are forces that are important about all of that – at the foundation of things. Even the floorboards that you have to run across aren’t held up by much. In other words, you see something that’s the epitome of confusion, chaos, and disturbance, but at the same time it’s the brightest thing on the planet in terms of the light that it gives off (although it’s artificial light). There’s something redeemable in all of that.

It’s interesting that you had that sense. I didn’t automatically have that. You’re already trying to pull what is redeemable, or of value, out from the glitz and chaos that is Las Vegas.

John: Interesting. Here we have the second dream of the night (see The Dark Forces), exploring the same territory as the first dream (see Mission Possible). In the first dream it was a masculine aspect of you that was needed. That masculine aspect brought something through, which, in turn, triggered a knowing inside of you, because it is the nature of the feminine to carry everything complete and embodied within her, yet she needs it awakened from an unconscious state.

In this dream, you are in your feminine aspect – the viewpoint feels like you as you are in life. As the feminine, you’re proceeding in a natural way, guided by a knowing that you’re moving away from something that haunts you in some capacity. You are trying to reach the water, which represents your unconscious, and you are not deterred by whatever tries to block your way.

When you reach the water, you initially enter in a state that is neither unconscious nor fully conscious. We know this because there is the concern of you being smacked about by paddles and boats as you try to navigate this new horizon.

Ultimately, you rise above that aspect of the unconscious and you find yourself on a boat, which can take you on a journey to deeper inner territory and away from the limitations of yourself.

But all of a sudden you have a flashback to something in the past. It’s a memory of someone you knew and cared for, yet who, in the instance of the dream, represents an aspect of you. And you realize that this aspect of you still carries some dark energy, like being possessed or taken over. Through this habit or mannerism, you are infecting the people and things around you.

So you have made this wonderful journey out on the water, found yourself feeling free on the boat, and you’ve realized that you have developed a certain strength and confidence within you. You now feel the desire to go back and try to relate to this dense, lower-self force that is a vestige of your life when it was influenced by such lower-self nature.

When you go back to land, you realize that everything you see has been affected by this vibration of a lower nature. But you notice that as long as you don’t do anything to challenge it, or stir it up, you can move around safely in this arena of life.

However, you have a confusion, and the confusion stems from a sense of caring about things in terms of Creation. You can see, as you move in this “infected” environment, that you have been a part of it yourself. So your feeling is a desire to use the higher access you have gained – a recognition of your higher self –  in some way to try and create transformation or change.

Jeane: Or remembrance.

John: Or remembrance, yes, good word. I’m not sure that the dream quite tells you how this effort works out for you.

Jeane: You don’t expect it to work right. You just have to try.

John: True. So, the spiritual concept here is that you have to try to make this step back. You can’t open up all these levels inside yourself but not look back. Part of the journey is to bring what has been opened up, back down through the veils and to try and make a difference.

Jeane: And it’s partly because of the baby. Because there is hope for what has not yet been completely infected.

John: Ahhh. So, you find when you do this the first thing is to rescue the heart of something that’s most precious, that’s sitting in a state of innocence. Aha! Yes, that part is true.

Jeane: Then a martyr aspect comes through.

John: Yes, because you’re going to try to make a difference amongst people who don’t want to hear about this sort of thing. They’re caught up in what they’re caught up in, in their lower-self world-view, and yet you’re feeling that, because of your good graces…

Jeane: Well, not all the people, just the force that I was dealing with (represented by my friend).

John: You’re right. You’re looking at just the energy that’s the focal point of the problem. If you can change the source of the dark energy, everything else will change too?

Jeane: Yes.

John: And you’re going to be able to come up against this dark energy, something that in most instances you would avoid like the plague, because you can see how it’s affected everything else. You’re saying that you’ve reached a point where you’re compelled, and ready, to confront the source of this dark energy, rather than ignoring it or setting it aside. So that’s an important transition.
