Jeane: My dream last night started out with me wandering through the desert with a group. There are people that are guiding us through – they’re like Bedouins, except that they’re wearing indigo colored robes.

Initially, we just follow them. As we get deeper into the desert, there are areas with rising rock walls that we go between. I move closer to our guides, getting right in behind them. When I do, it suddenly feels like I’m under their protection, or it feels like I’m one of them. I don’t have the sense of being separate.

I can feel that I have a certain protection from them that allows me to stay out where they are, even though I’m not a Bedouin (or whichever tribe this group is from).

As the dream goes on, we come to an area where there are caves, and I think people are flying overhead in helicopters and hunting. It’s almost like there are military exercises going on or something, so it’s important that people know who’s on their side and who’s not.

At this point I realize I can make certain sounds, and even run through the caves, and be recognized by the Bedouins and even by some of the people in the helicopters. I can also find my way back to the group or be separated out if that’s what’s needed.

I have to remember the songs, and also remember the way back and forth. It seems like there has to be this form of signaling because otherwise the people flying above, and just seeing everyone in the desert, wouldn’t really be able to tell who was on their side or not.

John: The Bedouins, a nomadic desert tribe, represent, in this image, something that sits in this huge overall spaciousness – the open desert – and opens up perception and awareness. The Bedouins, as a tribe, also represent something connected into a period of time that stretches back thousands of years, flowing in an overallness in which very little has changed.

In coming to recognize this overallness, through this vibration inside you, you are also becoming aware of things that can cause you to get a little disoriented (feel hunted), in relationship to this greater overallness that has opened up. But you have your guides, and you’ve found, because you have a comfortability in Creation, that you can use songs to move about in order to make yourself known.

In other words, these songs or sounds create a connection, or a linkage, through which you can be just fine in this overall greater spaciousness, i.e., you can be just as at home in the desert as a Bedouin, knowing how to safely come and go.

In other words, you have found the means by which you can better appreciate this expanded space that you have opened up, which has an orientation to the past, and a sense of freedom. You have gained an understanding of your whereabouts within this space and, if in doubt, you have learned to use sound to orient yourself.

In a sense, you have proven that you are not an outsider in this greater space, but an accepted participant who belongs there. That’s an important idea in a spiritual journey: a human being who lets go of personal ego and cultural, planetary attachments, does so in an effort to join with something else, something much greater, which is already in progress.

The idea of joining an already ancient process, which is playing out at a universal level, requires that we humans get to know Its ways – that we learn to fit into It, and to be like It. It is a truth of the human journey that Creation will never exclude us from participating, but we can (and do) exclude ourselves by being out of alignment with its ways and purposes.

Jeane: The first dream I had last night takes place in a room in the sky. I have a new machine. It’s called a Lillix machine, or something like that, and it downloads information.

I’m trying to figure out the wires to it and understand how it works. I’m talking to someone else about that. I spend the longest time working with this new machine. 

That’s the whole dream.

John: It would be easy to look at this dream and say, well, maybe it has to do with something that’s going on literally in your outer life. We’re always trying to figure out something on the computer, or update software.

Of course, our dreams can be affected by events in our outer life, but more often imagery that’s familiar to us is used to tell us something about our inner lives. Dreams can show us what is going on at the deeper levels within us, and also give us glimpses of the connections every one of us has to universal intelligence – to all of creation. In that way, understanding our dreams can unlock the guidance that we have available to us if we only learn to listen and connect.

Ultimately, all dreams have a deeper meaning. It’s really just a matter of whether or not we’re able to pierce through the veils enough to be able to see that deeper meaning and pull it through.

So in this instance you’ve created a dream image in which you’re in a room up in the sky with a machine that can download information. This room in the sky can be understood to represent a higher part of yourself – it’s not on the ground like everything else, it’s literally higher. And this machine that is fascinating you is giving you access to information that you don’t ordinarily have.

It’s new to you, so you’re trying to figure out how it works. So it’s not just the information that’s interesting to you, but the process of it is as well. By pulling out this image, you are being shown, in a very subtle way, at a deeper level of your psyche, that there’s access that can be gained inside of you.

During the day, your psyche has indulged in activities that have to do with trying to formulate something for useful purposes, so it is easy for your unconscious to use those familiar images to create a reflection. This reflection is meant to reveal to you, and cause recognition, that you are linked or connected to something at an inner depth. If we are quiet enough inside, i.e., we don’t have all the inner noise of worry and judgment, we can then bring this greater access into our daily lives.

Jeane: I couldn’t pull out much of the second dream.

I’m at a house in a city, and a couple I knew in the past has come to visit. She just sits in the hallway and reads.

I used to be a little standoffish with him, but this time he actually pokes me with his finger and just hangs out. We’re hanging out in a way that’s more comfortable than it’s ever been before.

John: So, again the imagery is showing you that something is coming through, right? You’re staying in a house and the man, who is usually more closed off, is able to be relaxed and give you a friendly poke. That new level of comfort shows that something has opened up for you. It represented by a masculine figure – a masculine aspect of you – that you might normally have had an inner resistance toward. Here you are more able to flow with it.

One way of understanding this image is in considering how it felt to you. What you are describing is a new level of ease with something from the past (a couple you used to know). Something has opened up and you are experiencing a greater dimension than before – and it feels right to you.

What prevents us in life is usually our own psychologies or defense mechanisms that we’ve picked up along the way. We use them to defend against what we perceive to be overwhelming – when something feels like too much, or is frightening in some way. So in this image, something from your past that you used to have more resistance to is opening up and you can feel that it’s a good expansion. There’s no need to defend against it or prevent it from opening up.

So both dreams are describing a similar process using very different images. They show you have let go of personal resistance and opened up to the greater intelligence that is available to you when you bring consciousness to your inner life.
