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 Adventure

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…

Inner Balance

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.
