iesIf you’ve ever tried to drive with a full cup of coffee you will understand this dream, because, when you try to do that, you suddenly become aware of a hundred bumps on the road that you were never aware existed. For the purposes of the dream, the dreamer is trying to keep an innerness intact, but everything around it, front and back, is trying to disrupt that inner state, all while the inner state is trying to impose itself on the outer situations. This is the struggle of trying to bring our inner life into the everyday of what we do. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My earliest dreams seemed to be more about almost like just forms, and it was like they come together and they shift. I can’t remember that much more about them. It wasn’t like anything was happening as far as people. It just was forms and shifting.

In the second dream, it’s like I’m looking for someone, and I go into an old theater building. I have to go down into the basement and through this kind of maze of rooms, and then I keep going past people but I can’t find the person that I want. I come out the other side, and I decide I have to go over to the next town.

And so I hitch up a horse to a wagon, a horse and a buggy kind of arrangement, and I head over there. And I have somebody else with me now, but then I get distracted, or not distracted, I’m going there, but there’s a man that is behind me that’s trying to pass me, also with a horse and buggy, but he’s trying to make his horse go too fast, and is kind of in that sense abusing the horse.

So I’m trying to get my wagon to block that so that he can’t go so fast that he wears out his horse, or abuses it. And then there’s another horse and buggy that comes in front of me which means I have to slow down a bit, too. That’s okay because I’m trying to get the guy behind me to slow down and even to get him to stop and ride with us, or go at a different pace, because his pace is way off in terms of how he’s pushing the horse. That’s all I remember. It was just a night when the dreams were kind of jumbled.

John: The theme of the dreaming had to do with being able to pull and integrate into a wholeness, into a oneness, all aspects of inner into outer, and the outer effect being recognized as a quality coming from an innerness.

And when you were like looking at that, or contending with that, or in the swirl of something like that not having pulled it through with a clear-cut understanding of where this was all at, what it all meant because you were, in terms of the fact that to properly do this you have to let go of everything, and you weren’t able to let go of everything, because you were affected by the horse, meaning a sense of power in the buggy or whatever, you know one behind going at a peculiar pace, one in front going at a faster pace, you in the middle. In other words, whatever all that dynamic was, and how you were having to cope and relate back and forth to the tug-o-war of something like that, you were not sorting out what that really meant. However, it is better, that’s a better image than sitting completely in an amnesia as if there’s nothing going on.

That image of being kind of in-between things, and frustrated by being in-between things, and it’s almost as if when you’re in that it’s a frustration that seems to have an outer vibrational effect because the buggy in the front’s not acting right in relationship to the buggy in the back.

Take that image, add this following image to it. Let’s say you have a house, and the house has an outer area that is exposed to the public. In other words, it’s what the public can see. The public can’t see the inner sanctums of the house.

So if you have a family in the house that’s protected because something sits in this outer area and is able to contend with the forces of things in this zone in the outer part of the house, and is able to somehow or another sustain its ability to do that, that means that on the deepest of the inner levels everything can appear to be okay.

But what if that outer level gets broken into from the collective on the outer, of which something can be sitting in that outer room that is all properly barricaded and whatnot, and protected, so that the innerness is secluded from it from happening?

See, you with the carriage with something in the back and something in the front, you are in that outer room. Now if the outer room breaks down… First of all, what is this outer room? What is this carriage that is caught by something in the front and something in the back? Essentially this is a zone that you could describe as a place where the dynamic is being played out between the forces of vibration and energy that have penetrated the lower levels of the inner plane, in other words, because you can have a place of a greater quietness.

Now what’s happening, the mistake that’s being made in consciousness, is that a person can go into this place, can be really soothed in this place, and can thereby pull themselves into this greater level or degree of isolation, or a greater inner level. Yet you’re still going to have this outer level, of which there’s an innerness having penetrated it, that is able to keep things hidden. If it’s effective enough it can keep things hidden. So you can have the buggy that’s not right in the front, and you’ve got something pushing from the back, and sitting in between you have an energetic that holds the line.

These shapes all have to come together, and so you have that as your schematic, and then you go into a dream in which what you have as a consequence is this area in-between in which there is a dynamic going on so that the buggy in the front and the buggy in the back, there’s kind of a veiling as a result of the buggy in the middle.

So this leads to a confusion. See, where your dream left off is you saw what it’s like to be in this in-between, but your image wasn’t enough to show that this in-between is a lot like an extension to a house, an extension that is out there in which if anything goes on it goes on against this extension, this kind of zone, and that on the inner of that even is a quietness, is a peace.

6-3Discovering uncharted territories is a passionate pursuit for humans: the New World, the  depths of the ocean, outer space. It is natural for us to want to claim new space. But what if that inclination in us is really built into our design so that we can bring consciousness to what is unconscious? Created so we could discover what is on the inside? Because when we shine the light of our attention into new places, so much more becomes possible – particularly for our journey. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the dream, I am inclined to believe that I may be doing something wrong when I lose myself like that, but then of course when you wake up you realize, oh my goodness, it’s amazing what’s going on here. Because the dream is pointing out that in the emptiness, and stillness, and a letting go, I’m able to access within a place therein that I am able to merge into, and merge with.

In other words, it’s not like it’s separate, it’s part of me. It comes out and it automatically sweeps everything into it. And this is a merging into a wholeness that energetically permeates all of life, and it permeates it from the inner level.

That is why you don’t try to control, or regulate, the light because it’s controlling things from the inner level and you in the outer then would be imposing controls that prevent this from permeating. So the idea of it being a problem, in other words, the fact that it sweeps over everything like it does is just a pun, because when you settle back you see that there’s a wonderful result in being able to take in a flow, through one’s self, that is connected inner and outer, and outer and inner; it flows.

So that’s the meditation dream; so that has to be broken down. And so, in my dream, I proceed, or take you, to a past in which I had lived which is in Hungry Horse. And we go to Hungry Horse to where there is a river that flows through the area, and the river is at the lowest level I’ve ever seen, so low that I am able to cross the river to the other side, which is something I have never done before.

When I was a kid there I never did this. There are others there that give you concern, just seeing them. It’s just they were hooligans or something, but I know everything is okay. In other words, they’re kind of trying to like maybe keep this place to themselves and, once one gets over that little trepidation, as you look you’re amazed at the trail system that exists – that I didn’t know was there – because I’d always assumed that this is a pristine area, which is what it was when I grew up, unexplored, and it’s natural beauty had been untouched by man.

So we come to a place where there are kids in a small pool that looks wonderful. I ask if it’s a hot spring. They say that the water is only about 50 degrees, in other words, just barely survivable in a situation in which outside it’s still snowy and could still be part of a melt going on. It could be very cold.

So I go and check it out. It is fine. They’re bullshitting. It’s comfortable, but not hot, but the pool is small and probably too small for you and I. So we keep exploring, and I seem to separate from you and come to a place where there is another hot springs that is much hotter, and that’s kind of even enclosed a little bit, and when I go inside young people again, not old people. We’re the geezers over in this area.

When I go inside, the kids that are here are kind of drunk in what they’re taking in. You find the place. You come looking for me. You find the place and, as you look in, you come across as like an official authority the kids have to follow. And you say that the cans, the beer cans, got to go. And, of course, I know that they think you’re an authority figure, but I know that it’s not quite what it appears. And so I just get off and we start walking away – so the old geezer amongst these youngsters is leaving.

Suddenly, off to one side, I see like a natural slide that goes from this hot springs and, in the far distance along this slide, it comes to another hot water pool that is connected to the river below, and that’s where the old geezers are at. And so I say, “Why isn’t anyone taking in this natural water slide?” And they tell me that it is too hot.

I joke with them that it is probably fine. I have no proof of that, I just suddenly seem to think that maybe they’re kind of misguided or something. So, I have to check it out. So I get into the slide at the top and find the water to be wonderful. It’s not too hot and, in the far distance at the other end, I see people – that’s where the grownups are at, and they’re swimming around.

So it appears to me that if it’s okay at the top, and the water flows down and goes into that, it should be fine all the way. It can’t be like they are imagining. Just as a last precaution I decide to go over, you and I we’re going to go over, just to make sure it is okay.

So when we get over to where the area is approximately at, to my surprise, as a last step, suddenly we have to take a man-made elevator up to the top of a tree and proceed across from there.

I took you into a past in which there is a lot of power, but when I grew up there the power was deprived. That’s Hungry Horse, horse is power. This power place had been like a hungry ghost unable to get out from its shadow. This time something is different. A roaring river that separated the area I grew up in from inaccessible pristineness on the other side is now accessible. So now that we’re able to cross over to an area no one when I was kid had ever gone, I find it has become discovered by kids and is a wonderful place to explore. In other words, what I’m seeing is not what I had expected to find on the other side.

So then as I explore further I find a hot springs, I realize that this hot springs is connected to a kind of a waterslide, and it is from there that I can see that this natural slide goes a long ways to where it reaches a river way below, and this waterslide connects, in other words, from a youthful innocence of an energetic to the adults in the pool of their own.

So to get there the last step is we need to take an elevator up a Tree of Life and, from there, cross into this zone.

So the meaning is the dream is portraying how much I have grown consciously, in that I have come to access a dormant inner power within that was limited in what it could do long ago, but is now able to cross, in other words, to take this growth and go over into a pristine realm, or the other side.

In this area things are wonderfully different, although at first glance that isn’t apparent to the feminine side of myself, because it’s new and so you have your preponderances. That part is naturally fearful because this is an area of unknown.

Not only do I find an abundance of inner into outer hot springs that no one in the past was aware existed here, I discover that the innocent young people who are the first to find this place are kind of keeping it to themselves, so it remains yet in a kind of unconsciousness. Adults are too prudish or fearful or quick to dismiss to be able to know that there is something more. The energy consciousness of an inner youthful innocence likes it that way, and is inclined to keep it hidden from old souls. But you and I have taken steps in which we are no longer deluded, or fooled. In the end I am able to close the gap between young and old, and am able to handle the waters between the two zones; in other words, to make the linkage.

The way this fits with the meditation dream is that a greater mergable consciousness is now possible in that the time has come for assumptions about this being a no-go zone to fall away. In falling away life in terms of access and appreciation of what had been inaccessible inner levels unfold. Wrongful, or false assumptions, when they fall away, reveal a powerful inner flow, and there’s power behind that that connects old with new, or maybe you’d say new with old, and unconscious with conscious, or conscious with unconscious, depending again how you want to flip that, upon the other side inner level of my beingness.

Until it became possible to access this inner pristine place I was not aware that, on this other side, so much there needed to be opened up there again in order to realize, recognize, and appreciate how connected, how new connected to old, how above touched below, how consciousness affected unconsciousness, and that in general that on this other side the means existed for a greater fullness of consciousness to rise up anew.

do22oadWe like to think that stressful situations in life don’t really affect us, and also that we don’t pass that effect onto others – but we do. And this dream illustrates the potency of that, because a situation in waking life triggered a dream meant to process the energy through, but when the horses came to help, the help was rejected. So what was being processed became a swarm of wasps embedding themselves on the dreamer, and then no one would help her! We can also see how something not handled initially snowballs in its effect and potency. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well I had a strange dream. I went to a house and there’s people in the house that I knew from high school. It’s almost like they look like they did then, but I think about it as years later. We’re getting together for some kind of an event; it’s almost like they kind of flow better with each other than I flow with them.

At one point I remember I’ve gone from one part of the house to the other to see the people there. There’s one person in particular I always liked who is very kind of bright and nice, and I’m kind of observing what they do, and the other people as they come, and how they are like they used to be then. There’s both men and women there.

And then someone is bothered by something outside, and I go and I peek through just a partially open door, and I see a bunch of people have ridden up on horses. And then I go out into the yard. It’s like a saddle club has stopped for a minute to rest at the house, and they’re wandering around the yard and everything. And they come up and they talk to me, and I tell them the people in the house want them to leave.

Well then, because I’m outside, I go over to another building and I go into a room. I don’t know if it’s a library, or what kind of a room it is. There’s one of the other people there that I hadn’t seen, but these wasps have swarmed and formed nests in his body and they’re all over the place.

And then the wasps start swarming on me, and they swarm on my left wrist, and I think near the back of my neck. They don’t seem to get as much in my hair like they did with him, and maybe somewhere on my lower back. But they form a nest, or three nests at least. At first I try to get rid of them, but then these nests have hardened and they all seem to be asleep in the nests, the wasp nests, but they’re on my body and they’re hardened, and I’m kind of freaked out by this.

And I go back to the house, and I go to someone in the house that I think knows how to work with this, and will take them off me, or be able to get them off me, without having them all sting me, but this person is just really annoyed because everybody’s ready right now to go to a big dance that’s like an engagement party for one of the people. It’s even a couple I like, and they don’t want to hear of the wasps. I’m just supposed to put up with it.

And then I notice that I actually am wearing this kind of ice blue party dress, maybe even a corsage on the arm that partially covers the wasp thing. I run into a couple that I don’t even know or like very well, I mean I don’t know for what for what reason, but I mean I don’t even really know them – and I realize I can get a ride to the party with them. I’m not really even wanting to go, but that seems to be thing you’re supposed to do.

But I really can’t stand these wasp nests so much that I actually pull off part of one of the nests on my left wrist. Some of the wasps crawl around them but none seem to sting me. But I feel like I have to go to the party and bear that, and I don’t have a gift for the party so I see a box up on a shelf and I bring it down, and there’s some money in it that I had put there at some point, so I take some of that money out so I’ll have it if I see a chance to get a gift.

But I’m really still kind of freaked out by the wasps that I just have to suppress that, and hope I can find someone that knows how to get them off without them all stinging me.

John: Do you know what triggered it?

Jeane: Probably yesterday, which was a mess.

John: And notice the parallel in the vibes, because that vibe is now feeding into the dreamworld in order to help you resolve, or absolve, that condition. So notice that. Because this is a dream that’s designed to give you more of an in depth, up close, way of catching up with and noting that so that it is something that you’re able to handle.

Now, how is it that you normally handle something like this? You have an absolving quality in your nature that absorbs this. You’re trying to absolve this, and find that quality inside, and you’re able to somehow move in the direction of an absolving energy inside of yourself in the dream.

In other words, this is like an answer and a fix response to the scenario that came up yesterday. Generally, you always dream based upon the state and the condition you’re in. So if you’re carrying some sort of neurosis about your nature you’re going to have to contend with what that neurosis is, and get guidance and advice accordingly.

Now it’s real hard to understand that guidance and advice because the fact that it threw you around or affected you in some way, when you dream about it, are you going to be able to reach to a higher quality behind all of that that’s there for you to reach, that’s there for you to come out?

Now sometimes you can dream about something, like this is a kind of dream that you would not normally have because normally we don’t get thrown asunder like you were yesterday, but because you did, you have that propensity in your nature, a latent propensity in your nature and so you had this dream.

Now what else do you notice about this dream? What you notice is you have a huge effect in this dream. When you have this, you’re going around and you’re projecting that mannerism wherever you go. Notice that it fell apart slowly. Initially, you’re in a house and there is a very slight imbalance, and then that slight imbalance leads to these characters that come up on horses and wander around the yard.

Think of the symbolism of horses.Think of the power that a horse is meant to carry – and how you didn’t like that. Whatever came up you don’t like, and then realize how that then devolves further to where it becomes something that you can’t shake off, that embeds itself in your nature.

Well, when you have a nature that doesn’t normally have that, that flows in the outer, that has opened up something in the outer, and all of a sudden you have that, too, can you see how pervasive that is? That’s the reason for the horses was to bring in the idea of power behind that, and it penetrates into the outer and has a bad effect in the outer.

And it all fit within a nice storyline that looked entirely different, but it was about the vibration and how that vibration works in relationship to how it is that you are able to be, and how it comes across in life. You bet you need to take a step back and get a bit of a drill down on something like that because, once you have grown in a certain capacity and something like that comes over you you’ve got to be careful what you think about – meaning that your thoughts then are more powerful in terms of their effect and potency in terms of affecting things in the environment.
