Jeane: In this first dream, you and I are trying to get access to a large circular area. This circular area looks just like the windows of the great room in the condo we looked at in Las Vegas – with the sweeping view – except my sense is that this is a much larger space. I seem to be urging you to see if we can figure out a way to gain access into this area again.

Finally we have an insight into to how to do it: We have to get through an alarm system, with lights, which may even cause an electric shock.

Before the imagery of the dream shifts, we gain access to the whole space, though we may have gotten a bit of a shock in doing so.

Then the dream shifts, and I’m with my sister in a room where she and I live.

John: What you’re doing is you’re taking the visual of something that’s light – the panoramic window view from the condo – and you’re using that as a representation of peacefulness, that either you can hold, or that the space itself maintains.

When we go down on the Strip in Las Vegas, you may not notice it, but I can recognize that the two of us – our combination as a unit – are able to hold a space that enables something to be sustained, or maintained, or protected, or even to evolve.

In this imagery, you’re working with light and you’re working with sound, because you have this whole sense where you’re trying to break through to something. It’s a lot like a plane going through the sound barrier – after a lot of noise it pops through into silence.

Such an energetic shift affects things. You’re evaluating this energetic in terms of what it is that we’re doing, looking into an image of light (Las Vegas) that we’re touching, in some capacity, with our energetic, just by the way we carry or hold ourselves. And that’s affecting this overall image, this overall view.

The interesting thing about Las Vegas is that there’s something that has to be sustained and maintained, and you’re suggesting that there’s something about our presence here that helps to do that. It’s almost a challenge to our own beings to open up, and to ground, and to break through.

In other words, Las Vegas is not necessarily “Sin City.” Las Vegas is a state that can confuse a person if they don’t have the focus and attention that allows them to actually get what’s going on. If a person is continually spun into disorientation, then they will get the ill effects of the coarser energies here, and everything else will be missed.

But light is light, and if you’re able to create the epiphanies, the breakthroughs, the shocks, the light bulb moments (that could be both good and bad because they’re jolts of awareness), if that could be supported, then that’s doing something in a way that works with the space in an interactive way. And all we’re doing is using our presence to make that happen, at a certain level of perception.

Jeane: I was dreaming a lot, but the motion of the dream made it hard to pull out certain aspects of the story. There was a dynamic going on where it felt like I was in a canyon area where the rocks were all red.

I was trying to climb up high. There were even some people there who were very tall and thin, like Wilt Chamberlain. I kept climbing up high on the rocks, and then I would go down very low, beneath the earth.

At the same time there seemed to be a very slight circular motion going on at a horizontal level. When the dream had people in it – with dialogue and a story line – that seemed to be happening on the horizontal level – in a linear way.

So there was something that was so interesting about going way up on the craggy red rocks and then way down, below the earth, and then also experiencing a little bit of circular motion.

I wasn’t able to pull out the dialogue or the storyline with people, though. It felt like I was trying to hold too much all at one time.

John: The theme last night had to do with being able to put oneself into the flow; of becoming part of the unfolding that is a natural design of life. The images you’re describing are expressing an attitude that seeks to relate more with what is rooted in Creation, represented by the red rocks. You have, by delving into Creation, gone to a greater depth within. 

However, that depth within you tends to have spirit energy that is frozen, or confined. So the rising up has to do with something being awakened inside, because something has touched it. That’s where you get the circular motion of rising up and down.

The linear motion – what is occurring on the horizontal plane – is an indication that you (as a human being) are caught trying to personally cope with this awakening. But that’s the wrong approach.

A person who functions at such a personal level can never, ever know what’s really going on because everything they do is reflection of, or a reaction to, what is unfolding. They have limited themselves to understanding only through their senses and then their brain. In doing it that way, they aren’t in touch with, or in tune with, what is unfolding from the standpoint of human nature that is designed to be entwined with and part of the flow of Creation.

This is similar to the idea that total openness – or vulnerability, or surrender – is actually where it’s the safest. That’s because it means a person is connected and entwined with everything; it’s when we are in alignment with Creation that we are most protected. That’s where a human being can function joyously with what is unfolding all around them.

So in your dream we see that you’re looking at the variables. Part of you is still trying to reconcile what is going on. Part of you can see yourself in this linear mode, which is the human being who goes laterally in relationship to life. You might say that is traveling east/west, so you open up a little, and close down a little, but it’s a lateral motion.

Then there’s the part of you that has opened up to the greater dynamic of north/south – going high up to something, and then going down into the depths of something. As a consequence, there is the circular motion you feel.

So it’s a matter of perception. Most of us have become limited in our perception to only one axis – and it’s the one experienced through an ego-based view of life – when we think that we are the center of our own universe, and everything that happens, happens to “us.” Yet if we expand our perception to a fuller view – east/west and north/south – we begin to experience our life as an integral part of all that exists.

It’s our defense mechanisms, personal psychologies, and belief systems that protect and deepen the grip of the linear, east/west motion, and that keep us from being able to grasp the up and down, the inner and the outer, which makes up the wholeness.

The north/south motion enables us to awaken, from within, the imbedded spirit energy that comes from the divine. That process then enables the connection to the divine will, which can guide us through what is always unfolding.

As we become guided, we actually gain access to a subjective quality inside us that is not readily heard because the chatter in the brain can drown it out. But if we connect to the subjective side in our nature, it puts us in touch with, and in synch with, that inner part that’s created in the image of the divine, or from the thought of God.

We can’t catch up with the true nature of life through the east/west axis, we can only “cope” with life. We catch up with it by following the north/south, up/down aspects as well.

You might say the east/west motion is the senses that probe and poke around and do their best to understand the way things are outside of us, with the sun rising and the sun setting. The north/south motion means that you catch up with both the sun side and the moon side of yourself at great heights and depths, which is in tune with the cosmos or the universe to which we’re entwined.

Your dream is looking at these components – by breaking them into separate parts – and seeing how it requires a state of total surrender or openness.
