Posts Tagged ‘halfway house in a dream’

64aBeyond whatever career we may be involved in, it certainly seems that we all have certain roles to play in our lives, and in the lives of those we interact with. Sometimes that means we bounce from situation to situation finding people to support us in our journey, or it could mean we are the person who is usually in support of the journeys of others. All these roles are equally important for the unfolding of the whole, if we remember our natural role has to do with our greater purpose in life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: I kind of approach it from the standpoint that in the contanglement of things, it’s like I still am defending a threshold, and by threshold means that I see a… there’s a house, I’ve stepped out of the house into the porch, or front area. And then there’s a person who’s approaching that’s trying to come into the house, and I’m boxing and fighting this person.

And at the same time I know that what this person has to offer is important, and so what I have to do because I know that it’s important and that I shouldn’t keep fighting it, is I take a punch and I go down kind of prudently. And this action is kind of a common sense and simplicity that I need to do, in other words, not continuing to act like I’m safeguarding some threshold. In other words, by doing this I’m stepping out of the way, which is not what a person generally does when they’re trying to understand and figure things out – because it’s not for me to grasp. I just needed to step out of the way because that is what is needed.

So that’s like information as to how to contend with something, and then comes a long dream in terms of why I have to contend with this. In other words, this is about something yet. Stepping aside is still about something yet to be.

In this dream, which is still a meditation dream, it is my responsibility to make sure that a building complex that is dedicated to the well being of more or less wayward women is a safe place for them to stay. And basically they get balanced there, in terms of the needs at the time.

So, in the dream, my initial role is to be attentive to how it is that they’re able to be there in order to get stabilized so that they can take another step back into life, because as they are here for a period of time, the ones that don’t have a huge burden of responsibility yet, and just need to get a little beyond the weight of things that they carry, which means that they need to find their own freedom inside, or true independence, and when they do they ultimately go out on their own.

But when they come, because they have issues, and complexities, and such, to begin with they come in a weakened or dependent way, and my responsibility, in terms of my primary focus, is to help them see themselves, find themselves or, in other words, this is a type of inner rescuing.

Okay, that’s how it starts, and then the more independent, or the ones that are able to set things aside, they have now moved on. And the women that are left are those that keep more to themselves. I haven’t looked in on them in a long time. They sit in kind of a wing of this huge building that I have off to one side. Many of the others that have come with a certain sense and bravado of their nature have caught up with themselves and moved on, but in this section of the building complex, it’s reserved for the more middle-aged women who have had a tougher time of things.

By middle aged means that they’ve been through certain knocks in life and whatnot, and so I’ve learned to shrink a little more, or basically condense, contract a little more. So, on the surface they could appear harder to help. It’s not unusual for one of them to be taking care of a child even. I mean they could have had all kinds of things going on in their life. And these women seem to be an aspect in life, in and of themselves, and they tend to bond in their way in terms of this way of being.

Today, as I look out over the complex, it pleases me to note first of all that most of the young adult women have moved on, and that I just have those that have come together, have contracted, and that have been through life, have suffered certain bruises, and I recognize that out of that comes some sort of newness in life.

So as I proceed to go and take a look at the sound I hear, to make sure everything is okay what I am doing is digging deep within to see how it is that I need to be in terms of what there is there. It has been awhile since I have had to adjust my demeanor to take in more of this kind of unfoldment energetic that I’m required to oversee. Isn’t that an interesting dream?

So the meaning is, the dream is indicating that my role is still that of supporting an unfoldment process that takes into account an energetic that is not able to step out independently on its own into life, yet.

The reason is because this aspect is charged with the responsibility of bringing into the world what had been repressed, as bringing forth from that to an awakening, or at least the nurturing of that even if it is couched in a kind of repressed state. And that what I am providing is kind of a place for this to evolve. This is not an energetic capable of standing on its own, this is an energetic that comes into life with something anew that is quietly nurtured in an inner atmosphere, and it’s kind of a hidden inner atmosphere because it’s contracted.

The deeper meaning is, I am healing a wound in life from within. In other words, that’s what the contractive state in one’s being does. And, in doing so, what is to emerge into life is able to be more open and free. The reason why it’s able to be more open and free is one is doing in the contractive aspect of things, is they’re coming to find out the limitations of that. And in my dream it emerges through almost a fairly painful contractive state, compressed. That which is freer jumps back out into life, but that which is compressed is having to bring forth something anew.

Now, what’s interesting is this is kind of like new information because that which is compressed, that is compressed for a reason because it has something new to bring forth, works with the future. That’s what’s interesting about this. And that which gets its act together in a freshness that just needs a reprieve in order to catch its breath again, still works with the present. And that future, of course, is the child.

And so the key is where am I in relationship to this? My responsibility is to provide the backbone that facilitates this way of reawakening. I’m still trying to catch up with my role in terms of how I move about and look to try to understand what is taking place in this place.

So in the dream what stands out is the attentiveness I have to understanding the need and figuring out how to proceed. So this is an unfoldment dream, explaining to me why I am the way I am in terms of my attention. I am meant to provide the setting for a new awakening which is meant to steadily emerge. This is a responsibility I didn’t realize I had.

So what this dream is doing is it’s kind of giving me information of how it is, why it is, that I function the way I function, because if you think about it it’s kind of insane. And yet the outer is creating a picture of something. It’s not creating a picture that I would create or design on my own, I just seem to be falling into it one step at a time. And so the dream is portraying that what I have to do is I have to step aside of the way things are right now, the way they go up and down and around and about. I need to step aside from that, and put myself into a position in which I facilitate something that is yet to be.
