Jeane: I wasn’t able to pull much from this dream, I only have an impression of it.

It seemed to involve an amusement ride – like a roller coaster – but it was indoors. I wasn’t very willing to take a ride, because it had that section that turns you upside down.

That’s the first impression.

Then I had a dream that involves several people and we’re all fairly young. It’s a chase or adventure where we’re running somewhere. Then a few of us are selected and we’re able to go up into a hidden area.

We have a certain amount of time to go through some boxes and pick out some things. In this case it happens to be jewelry that we can wear and it’s from a specific country – silver and garnets.

We have to choose the pieces we can wear and leave the ones we can’t. My niece is with us and I wonder whether I should put on the heart-shaped one, but it doesn’t seem right. Then my niece puts on one earring and I put on the other and we’ll wear those.

Next the chase begins. The dream then changes slightly. I’m with a young boy and we’re told we should go up into a certain area and that we have to do so very quickly. There we find the hidden boxes and this time they have to do with Japan…

John: So right off the bat you’re dealing with multiple levels, which is becoming more common in our dreaming.

To begin with, the first image of the roller coaster is like looking at a path, or following a path. In this particular instance you looked at it, but you didn’t want to experience the part that loops you upside down and around. You basically just said no to that.

Okay, then what happens?

Jeane: Well, we went into a secret room and there were hidden boxes. We could select things to take out and the first boxes had to do with a certain type of jewelry.

In the second case it was objects from Japan, and other people kept popping their heads into the room and we had to pop their heads back down because we didn’t want them to see the objects because next there was going to be a chase.

John: Yes, even though you might not realize it, you’re still working with the first part of the dream (the roller coaster) – you’re just working on another level of it.

In other words, the first part of the dream has the image of the roller coaster, which is something that can whip you around and turn you upside down. It can be very wrenching. So you said no to that, and the dream shifted to a different level that takes a gentler approach.

You take the gentler approach in order to hold, or to maintain, something, rather that wrenching it apart. The roller coaster begins a vibrational thread, and the scenario with the jewelry is another aspect of that thread.

As I listen, you’re describing what you’re doing to try to hold something together in relationship to a quality of that thread. And what happens? You are able to find things of value (by opening the hidden boxes).

So then, you must protect these valuable things, or defend them from attack?

Jeane: No, I don’t think they’ll be attacked, but I have the sense that these are objects that we’ll need when we take off and are chased. They’re going to help with where we’re going, and we don’t want other people to catch up with them.

In the case of the objects from Japan, we don’t want other people to see what we’ve got. People keep popping their strange little round heads up into the space, and we’ve got push them back down and then select something really fast and get on our way.

It’s an adventure and we’re going to have certain tools that can help us on our way. But we don’t want everyone else to see what we’ve got.

Tomorrow we’ll see how this adventure turns out…

John: So yesterday we looked at the first in this series of dreams (see Not Being There), and each subsequent dream progresses in a way that seeks to fix, or evolve, the situation into a better state, from within, but it’s still off. The general inspiration for these dreams is our recent transition from the Northwest to the city of Las Vegas, and our process of making adjustments within ourselves as a result of the different environmental factors

The next images have me preparing to meet with someone. I’ve spent more than 15 minutes trying to get my glasses clean because all kinds of weird stuff has fallen on them. I’m trying to scrape it off.

I see that I’m veering away from where I’m expected to go. When I get to a building, I realize that I still need some sort of metal object that can slice; I need something that’s strong and firm enough that it can cut through things. I must build it myself.

I have permission to go into an area where odds and ends are stored to select something that might work to help rectify the condition. I take out four objects in an effort to alleviate the situation. I think I can use a welding tool to cobble things into place, but what I’ve selected doesn’t work because when I apply any heat to it, it will melt or burn through the material. The tools I have do not have what it takes to hold something in place, so I’m using this material to create something that can slice through. 

Meanwhile, I need to set this project aside because I’m running late and I nearly compromise my principles because I’m under pressure. At the last minute I clean up after the work I’ve done.

In other words, I tried to cut a little of this off, I tried to burn a little of that off, and I made a bit of a mess. I pick up after myself and take what’s left of the implements – they need to be returned. They didn’t work for me, but maybe they can be used as components for something else. I look around to see if I can make anything else work for what I need.

Someone is coming over so I have to put everything aside for now. But instead of putting the tools into a closet or some drawers where they would best be kept, I put some of them into a refrigerator. I can straighten that out later, but at the moment I need to gain some composure for my meeting.

What is this showing me? Well, although I still haven’t accomplished what I was trying to do, I’m aware of what the problem is – I just haven’t acquired the proper tools that I need to be successful.

However, I do realize that I must look within myself for what I need, in order to find balance in the outer life. This will take time, but at least I’m looking around (within) for the tools to resolve the imbalance. If I were looking for the solution in the outer life, I would be in serious trouble.

In the next dream, the imagery moves further toward a sense of completion (after that, my dreams again start to deviate from it, showing that nothing is complete, all is just a step forward and then it all starts over again).

In this dream, I find a condo that I feel I can make into a place of balance. I notice that in doing this, other apartment units near mine start changing, shaping themselves up to be more in a balanced energetic.

So what had been a state of confusion and chaos, in terms of everything being too much to cope with (because of the sensory overload of Las Vegas), is now being brought into greater alignment. I see that I’m able to move about without feeling so lost.

What this adds to the scenario is that, if I take the time to look at what lies within – as an awareness, or as an answer – I’m better able to flow in the maze of the outer world. I’m learning how to hold onto and apply an inner connection that is able to reach into all that is before me.

And I’m starting to find the value latent within (the outer world of Las Vegas) that I ordinarily don’t reach (nor do most people). Nearly everyone in Las Vegas is expecting to catch up with the meaning of this place in some sort of outer reflection, and that is just a veil over what is really here.

Jeane: There was something else I wanted to express about the experience here in Las Vegas, where we are working on purchasing some property, and that is that I have become aware of what I would call a “thief” energy in this environment that we need to be conscious about (for prior entries in this thread see Inner Property and Change of State).

I say that out loud as a reminder that we need to be aware of how we do things, and it began the moment we arrived here. It seems to be part of the test, so to speak.

John: Yes, that seems to be true. There is a kind of waywardness, or haphazardness, that seems to predominate, and it’s constantly on the lookout to capture the person who is in a state of unconsciousness.

It’s interesting because that thief energy, as you call it, is actually more of an abstraction or distraction from what is actually here in the desert of Nevada. There is a deep inner wonder that lies beneath all of that external noise, which is at the depth, or the essence, of Las Vegas itself.

It’s easy to not catch up with it, or appreciate that depth, or that wonder. It’s even harder for it to reveal itself if one is constantly having to deal with the peculiarities of daily life here. Yet both aspects come with the energetic territory of being here. In fact, it is the underlying energy here that makes what has become “Las Vegas” possible, on some level.

In a sense, Las Vegas challenges us to go inside and bring forth a deeper appreciation than is found on the surface of things. Las Vegas has been contaminated by this thief energy, which probably goes all the way back to how the city was formed around the businesses of gambling, sex, alcohol, etc.

A business friend of mine who loves Las Vegas would say that it has all the best business opportunities to invest in – the “Sin Tax” businesses – because there are always more people drawn into the energies of it.

And so what you’re looking at in your dreams, and what I’m looking at in mine, is that there is a note that transcends through it all, and that note is more important than anything else that might get carried along with it.

It’s an expression, on a deeper level, that one needs to reach in order to find the full appreciation of what is at play. Because what is behind all this larger-than-life energy of Las Vegas is a power that’s even greater.

There is a note. And we don’t have to go through the consequences of being in such a lower-self vibration, which could plague and disturb and unravel. We can instead hear this note that lies beyond all of that, and remember that that is what’s important, and that’s what makes Las Vegas what it is in terms of the real heartbeat.

So the challenge is to stay with the note, and not be distracted by the bizarreness that is constantly before us. And, of course, that doesn’t mean, staying away from it, it means staying within ourselves when we are in it.

Ultimately that is the test of a spiritual journey. It’s much different being spiritual in a monastery on the hill, than it is being able to carry our spirituality within us wherever we go and whatever we come across. Until it is completely in us, everything we encounter in our outer life will show us where we are weakest and where we need the most work to set ourselves free.
