A New Platform

stairway-to-heaven-australia-1How often do we reflect back on our life and see the logic and usefulness for what, at the time, seemed like a detour from our personal view of things? Because we think we are in charge of our lives, yet if we believe there is a purpose to our lives, are we sure that we know what that purpose is? Sometimes we need to learn things now so that we are prepared and able to handle something on the road ahead, and those things will be put in our path – even if we don’t understand it at the time.

Jeane: I only remember one dream from last night, and it seemed to go on for a long time. Somewhere near the beginning of the dream, I think I had come across a friend of mine that taught me to kayak, a man.

And then I had gone on from there, and I had gone into a hotel, a fairly large hotel. And I had gone in, and then it felt like I came out of the hotel and I was near the back of the hotel, and there were some people in a yellow car, sports car, like a little Porsche or something, and they wanted to find their way into the hotel.

So I’m trying to show them how to go into the hotel, but they just start driving their car through a back, almost like a workman’s entrance, and I’m trying to get them and their car the right way into the hotel through this strange kind of workman’s entrance. And we go around some corners, and I don’t see how they’re going to make it to the front desk this way, but we run in, you know, we go through some back passageways and make some odd turns, and then a workman shows us, points us a certain way. And somebody there is able to lift almost like a rubber door that the car can drive through, or my guess is this is a way you can get to where we’re going after all, and after that I can kind of point them to a direction to the front desk.

But then I continue on looking through the hotel, kind of almost like trying to get back to the front of the hotel. I walk through a room, then I realize that somebody that I know is taking a shower, you know, in the bathroom of that room, so I kind of get out the front door before they see me because I don’t want to disturb them. But then I hear them come out behind me, and then I’m walking along a passageway that seems almost like hidden, and I’m aware that one of the girls is suddenly complaining about this man that I knew that I used to kayak with, like they’re not trusting him or something.

As I’m walking along, there’s a man on my left that I can barely see, that’s someone that I knew from childhood that’s died, you know, in outer reality, and he’s talking about how he knew him and he liked him just like I did. And so I’m hearing that comment, but I just keep continuing moving along and looking for like the front of the hotel. And it just seems to kind of go through a lot of passageways to get there.

John: So do you have any guesses in terms of what is in common between the kayak energy and the energy of something being able to be brought into the hotel of your being?

The theme of the dreaming is looking at the energetic that facilitates, it enhances and facilitates, a presence for an inner and outer. In other words, it’s like if you didn’t have a certain, we’ll say, dexterity, you having related with something that was, and can be considered, a dense energy, this guy was kind of a rough character, but he did cause you to understand how to ground yourself in a certain way, how to kayak, right?

And that developed a kind of confidence, or rootedness, in your nature, so that you could then take that as a foundation and facilitate something else, bring in something else, in this case into the house of your beingness, which is a huge hotel.

You’re able to travel in that. You’re able to bring something through, because the greater general thing is the inner being able to come into the outer. But the little tweaked dynamic is the charisma, or the precedence, or the confidence, or the magnetism is also important.

Most people don’t understand that because they correlate it so much with an outer image, and so you often run into people who are weighed down by all of this, that, and the other, that they think they need in order to be effective or to hold a statement in life. Instead, you can do this with just a certain zest, a certain zeal, a certain quality of something that can sparkle through, like for example the idea of going to India added a certain element to things. It helps in terms of making a point, or presenting something. It holds a charisma. It establishes and sustains a key.

And so this was kind of what the dreamworld was trying to point out, that there are things that one can do in life that don’t necessarily work against the inner process, that can help to facilitate it in some regard, especially when it works towards a groundedness, or a key, or an auric overall quality. It is enhanced in some fashion so that something more can happen.

And that something more that was shown that was happening was you carried something as a consequence of a confidence, or dynamic, from kayaking, that you would have the audacity to attempt to tell someone else how to take their fancy car into the hotel – when normally you would have just ignored that because you wouldn’t have had the presence to even begin to think that you could hold their attention in that regard.

So, just that alone gives you a platform from which you can work, in terms of relatability, in terms of being able to bring across a certain quality of expression and mannerism.

The Convertible Zone

569Yesterday we visited the “museum of oneself” in the dream described in Another Place Within. Here, the follow up dream continues from there to the next step in the process: bringing what is of value from the museum into the outer world. The image doesn’t show that exactly, but it’s important to see how the images connect from one dream to another, and get a sense of how the imagery moves the story along, revealing more detail of how the inner-into-outer process is meant to work in a human life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream I’ve driven up in this, it’s actually a convertible, with my friend Sally and we’ve driven up to a motel of some kind that’s not too far from the museum.

And we’ve gotten an room in the motel, but also it feels like the convertible, it feels like I actually spend the night out in the convertible. It seems to have whatever I need to spend the night there, and I think she spends the night in the room inside.

And then she must move on because it feels like I come back to the motel with a tall, thin guy, and he needs to spend a night or two there. In fact, I almost have the impression that I’ve gotten him out of prison somewhere, and that he’s almost like out on… he was able to get out because there’s some evidence that will come forth, maybe from the museum or somewhere, that will set him free. But he’s not quite in that free state yet, so we have to stay at the motel a night or two.

So I show him the room where Sally’s staying, which also feels like it’s my room, but I have the option of staying in the car, so I’ve gone out and now I’m studying what it was in the car that made it comfortable, or what might be Sally’s and what might be mine, although it all seems together in a way.

I’m kind of studying the car a little to see what it was that kind of made the car comfortable to stay in, as though I may stay there that night again. And then I’m also reflecting on how there is maybe some evidence in the museum that will help him get free, and kind of letting him loose to stay in the other room, too. That’s all I really could pull out of the dream.

John: Good thing I cut you off on that first part because that was important, because now the car is what, a convertible? Which is a zone between the inner and the outer. In other words, you can kind of go both places.

Well, you can kind of see a little bit, in other words, of that which is the museum, but in terms of having to go through the malaise and the bullshit of things that still has to occur in the mixing pot of the outer, or the hotel. And so you have various people – you have various components of yourself – that are advancing, that are getting on with things, but still have to go through what they have to go through.

And, in that regard, that is like you, or parts of you, components of you, that are trapped in this loci having to go through outer experiences. And yet, at the same time, because of the convertible zone and the recognition that you can be free of all of that, because there are things that can be awakened from the museum of yourself, you’re not exactly lost in the hotel. Parts of yourself are still imprisoned in that regard. However, you have something triculating in your beingness that has a semblance of resonance to the museum or, in other words, the inner.

So what you’re doing is this: with the right focus and attention, and that right focus and attention is the convertible side of yourself, you go through the experiences, or the sojourns, in the outer with other parts of yourself that have karma and whatever that you have to contend with to get caught up with, but it is a different journey in that you are burning it out. You are making yourself free of the overindulgence of that upon, I guess you would say, your unfoldment of what is able to naturally open up – which is the higher self, or the museum of it all, in which you’re intertwined.

In other words, all of those objects in a museum are interesting to you because they speak of something that is part of the whole at some point in time. When you truly go into the essence you go outside of time or space. That’s why that’s meaningful, and you can’t take it even though you feel like you can take it, then when you do all that does is kind of throw you back into the lower self again for having taken it. The reason it works that way is the soul is universal and infinite and has to be realized in that magnitude, and when you are appropriating things, or reaching for things, or trying to cause things to happen in terms of a perception of separateness as a beingness, that is when you fall back into the small mud puddle. That’s when you have to experience the hotel of it all, the hotel of it all being the hotel of the outer, in which everything is reflectively separate.

But you have this other drive capacity in you that knows the comfortability of the convertible. Con vert ible, converting, the ability to convert, the stimuli, and then the aspects of the outer, to their true essence, the inner. Or, as you infer in the dream, revealing something of the inner to the outer because that’s how it really works. That, as you look at that which is in the hotel, you realize that there is something in the museum that can be made known, or the inner can make itself known to that which is in the outer.

That’s the transmission, that’s the direction, and that’s how it works. And you are describing yourself as in this convertible zone, in this awakening zone, as opposed to the malaise of the outer. Isn’t that interesting?

A Degree of Separation


This is a beautiful example of how a chase dream works. Jeane is trying to get away from some bad guys, and in escaping must leave a part of herself behind to enable the freedom to leave. She drives through a hotel, upstairs and downstairs, and then exits, ending up in a completely different place. But she is not completely free because what she left behind is catching up, and what is ahead may require more than she currently has with her. Isn’t that exactly how we move through our lives, trying to let go and add what is needed when it’s needed? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well my dreams last night were affected by the fact that I had a headache, I get sinus headache sometimes with air conditioning. It feels like they were nearly all chase dreams.

And in the main chase dream it’s like I’m with three other people, maybe a couple of women and a couple of men that are friends of mine, but it’s like we realize the people we’re with are bad guys so I get at least three of them away with me. I think there’s maybe someone that stays behind, or the bad guy just because he’s confused or doesn’t move fast enough, or maybe he has some affiliation with him.

I also get away because it feels like no one seems to know how to operate a gun except me, so I’m able to take one or two of the guns and bring them with me. I know that some of the bad guys could operate them efficiently but they’re not there right then.

So when we drive away it feels like I get people in my car and go across the street and into a hotel driving, kind of go drive up the steps of a hotel and into a hotel where there’s a large conference center going on. So I’m able to sneak in and then we have to go through some of the upper floors of the hotel and then find a way to get down and out, and I finally am able to get them down to like a basement loading zone and get the little truck run down the steps there and out in the street.

And then it feels like we’re in California, which seems somewhat familiar to all of us. Then I notice that for some reason it feels like the bad guy is going to be very close to us, and there are army trucks somewhere up ahead, and I don’t know which side they’re on in a way, so I’m trying to check the weapons. And I can see how inept the people I’m with the weapons are, so I have to almost take the weapon to use myself, but I also have to try to steer the truck.

So it just feels like I’m always trying to get us to go fast and stay ahead, but you feel like the other people are going to be right on your tail all the time, and then the people coming towards you up ahead you’re not sure which side they’re on. I know I had other chase dreams during the night but I really couldn’t hold onto them. I just know they were chase dreams all the time.

John: You’re describing a process. A car is a means of motion and transportation. It’s also your self, and all of those parts of yourself are in the car.

The hotel represents kind of a general where-you-are-at kind of thing, that you have to go through. Because when you go through the hotel you suddenly find you’re in California. You started out across the street from the hotel. You go into the hotel. So you extricated whatever it was that had you bogged down and weighed down.

You are in, most of you that is, and you you’re in a flow or a car that has to go through a process, which is through a hotel, but something didn’t get rescued and that something is important in terms of an aspect in which you perceive yourself. It’s not in the occasion of the process. In other words, you’ve taken it out of the process. It’s gotten left behind, and is in the hands of something that’s trying to catch up with you or have its effect upon you.

You’ve already thrown off the effect knowing that it held you back in order to get into a motion that had a process that caused you to go through, and in going through you ended up in a whole new place, but in the whole new place you have the apprehension of also something coming towards you as you’re driving – as well as that which you are leaving behind coming at you.

As you’re driving in a singular focus then the other parts of yourself is going to have to make a way so that you can get through. Well that is the dilemma isn’t it? You can get to a process to where something is awakened, but then if something happens that changes the conditions so that you have to take into account both coming and going… Things may have been strained when you were in the process proceeding along because there was always something you couldn’t get totally away from, that was still able to haunt you and act as a kind of catalyst so that as the process unfolded you were always aware of that affecting your environment. But to then have to take into account that what lies ahead, that you’re proceeding towards as you try to pick up even more speed or something, the idea being initially to try since you have shifted and the other parts are still there behind you, that you can go now faster, that you can create a breakaway, but then you get shocked by the fact that up in front is something else that you are going to have to contend with.

And do you have what it takes inside to just penetrate through that, or are you going to hit some sort of, or be stopped by something up ahead? You’ve gotten away with it so long, and you’ve even shifted and gotten into California and all. You’ve invoked the process. I can see where you might think, okay, yeah, I’ve gotten this far, it should be possible that I can keep on keeping on. But it sounds like you’re not so sure. You’re not so sure that pedal-to-the-metal kind of thing but you’re not so sure that that’s going to get through there for you.

Well, that’s reporting on what’s happened. That’s I guess the beginning. What does it mean? I guess it means that there’s more to the process than meets the eye, for one thing. And that there’s something insurmountable ahead that you can’t take for granted – even though you would like to. You feel you’ve come this far, things have worked out, surely there’s going to continue to be relief. But you hadn’t anticipated that, as you shifted and even found a way of picking up speed, that here is this whole otherness that wasn’t supposed to be there, that you didn’t take into account as being there, anyway, is suddenly in your way.

The thing about this dream is you’re still something like a substance. You still have some sort of physicality to have to contend with. When you see something up ahead it seems like you almost had the audacity to think that somehow or another you just flash through it, but that knowing from within is a little presumptuous. You’re not quite there to just be able to have that quality that can do that, so you have to try to figure out how to contend with it and yet still try to maintain the pace, the speed.

And the consequences of that aren’t very reassuring, in your opinion, but what else can you do? It’s not a good prediction is it? It suggests a process. It suggests that in the process there is a degree of separation that’s in the way. There always is going to be this degree of separation in terms of the inner being everything, and us in an outer being somehow or another of a definitional way of being.

I think your dream is pointing to a greater fluidity because how you had been able to get by up to this point… In other words, you could continue doing this chase dream forever, but you’re not able to do the chase dream forever. You’re actually able to shift your awareness to some degree as part of the process and that can make it seem where you’re picking up speed, but you haven’t absolved yourself of some part of yourself that isn’t all there.

And so there comes a point in time when that part which hasn’t been absolved gets the best of you. In other words, you need all of that to go forward. That part of yourself is what would enable you to just know that in going forward that it will all be able to be okay as you continue to go at a faster pace. So the question is what is this pace that you’re going at, and it can go through all obstacles and barriers. I think it’s a type of light, and it has something that still has a type of physical nature to it. It has a physical nature because it hasn’t gotten all parts of itself assimilated into a wholeness.
