a-rippleWe often speak of being in the flow, and of connecting with the flow. And it may seem that there really isn’t a price to pay for our disconnection, but there is. To be in the flow is to be with the natural energetic support of life – wherever that may lead us. But when we put our own emotions and intentions as a priority, we cause ripples in our life, and they can affect the lives of those around us. It may seem subtle, but imagine the worst game of “telephone,” where the message is mistranslated at every stage of the game. What we end up with is completely unintelligible and of no use to us.

Jeane: So, in my dream, it’s like a young woman comes from, it almost feels like, inside an area into a vast area that might be inside or outside, I couldn’t tell, and she’s looking for her father. It feels like you can pass through and then go out the other side, like you can go from left to right.

And her father’s supposed to meet her there, but she just can’t find him. And then she looks again, and finally he comes out of an area, but he’s all preoccupied with trying to fit something in his ears or something. It’s like the little pill box headset or something. You know, she’s upset because he was supposed to have been meeting her, or looking out for her, and she felt like he was lost.

But the thing is, for some reason it’s all I really remember from last night, but for some reason the whole dream was jolting to me, or upsetting to me, in some way, so I just couldn’t quite settle into remembering anything else.

John: The scenario for the dream is the concern that you have that has to do with your dad not getting well, in that there is this sense that something is off about him.

Now the way you did this in your dream is you equate, on a symbolic level, the father aspect to be a greater overallness. And in that greater overallness you have assigned it as having a responsibility in terms of a well being. And so you have a sadness that arises, or a quality of concern that arises, if when you look at this overall well being and you’re not able to find a wellness, or quality of overall looking after. Or in other words a quality that you can say is a kind of general protection as being ever present.

In other words, somehow in that modality in which everything needs to go on, and on, and on in which there is a sense, at a deep, deep level inside of yourself, that there is no such thing as death, there is suddenly a quality of a going away; that you don’t want it to be like that because deep down you know that for somehow this is not meant to make any sense.

So what is happening is a personal ego quality is looking at this one way, and a deep inner honoring, connective, wholeness, which goes beyond the little self, is looking at it in another way. However, where the pain comes in, where the awkwardness comes in, is where the little self is still factored into the equation and, therefore, is not able to see, and fully connect, and appreciate the big picture.

So what is involved so that the little self can appreciate the big picture? Well, the world is designed so that the father of things… the true connection to the father of things, in the greater overall, comes from a deeper meaningful rootedness that brings the overallness, the macrocosm into the microcosm, or the manifestation of things, and does so in a way that doesn’t leave traces, or a shadow. To the degree that traces or a shadow are denoted, that degree is a kind of ego quality in which there is a pain of separation.

So you’re continuing in the theme that has to do with looking at the role of inner and outer, and how there is this importance of something in the great overallness of things. Only the difference is that you’re looking at your hole card, so to speak, that’s in manifestation, when yesterday you didn’t want to take that into as full a consideration as you are now, which means that this dream has a quality, that even though it’s hard to say that you get it, it has a quality of a letting go that’s in place, a releasing that is there.

And your dad, when he talks to me, follows a deep inner principle of never letting them see you sweat; in other words, keep the chin up. But with you, because of a bloodline closeness and such that is an avenue to, a means for, and reflective aspect of, the greater overallness of yourself the usual veils that exist, because the separation stranger quality in life has more fully fallen away, so as a consequence you are confronted with collateral damage reverberations as things unfold.

Now what is the unfolding? From the personal ego standpoint, the unfolding is uncalled for, or is something that you don’t like, but from the higher-self understanding it is a part of an aspect of the wholeness of a process. And so what needs to happen is kind of a quality of pulling the two together so that there is nothing that creates a reflective reverberation which holds back an unfoldment.

Where you see such an unfoldment being held back, or a process from more naturally occurring, is in a place where a person’s in a hospital, and the relatives are there, confusing the soul of that being. They’re trying to be one again with the world soul of it all. Confusing that soul by saying please don’t go and going through the grief and whatnot that creates, for that soul to the degree to which it has its ego involvement that malingers, creates a confusion so that something doesn’t as naturally unfold. So that there is an unmitigated kind of pain that doesn’t need to be there when something is meant to take a big shift into a whole other level of beingness.

The importance of a dream like this, in terms of a future consciousness, In other words, to the degree to which they affect a situation as if they have some sort of choice, in regards to the timing, is the degree to which they establish a barrier in which something doesn’t properly close.

The reason why it is necessary for something to find a more natural closure, or honorability, or respect, or however you want to call it, is because there is no such thing as the kind of death that the little self is concerned about. When the little self acknowledges, and properly recognizes, that then what happens is a connection; everything always remains.

Jeane: The thing that I would note about my dreams last night is they always took place in the dark. It was always night out and they seem to involve men I knew from my past, when I was in college or shortly after that.

In one dream one of the men is pursuing me. I’m always trying to stay out of the room where he is so as not to end up having to interact with him, but I can only prevent that so long.

Then a woman friend and I go into the room and there is no way that I can avoid him. I approach him but also ignore him a bit; I don’t want him to think I’m avoiding him, but at the same time I don’t want to give him too much attention because I remember him as being possessive. So there was a little maneuvering that went on between approach and avoidance. 

That evolved into a dream that involves another man I know who is very accomplished and talented. He is with a redheaded woman who has a lot of power. They are sitting in chairs, almost like thrones, in a room full of people.

He approaches me and I do a little dance to stay out of reach until at one point we’re together. It seems like we’re going to make love, but I want to make love while being on top, kissing him, but also maintaining a certain distance.

In terms of the energy of the dream, I would say it felt like I again could move around in a slightly circular way, as I moved in and out of the different rooms.

John: Whenever we experience dreams where something is trying to get our attention, in the case of these two images that’s represented by the men, it has to do with the way we take on moods, mannerisms, or patterns that suppress or block out the information that is trying to come through.

These patterns end up creating a situation where that information, or energy, becomes stifled, or pent-up. So it tries to get our attention – it wants us to acknowledge or recognize it. This can apply to physical aspects as well as emotional. Our patterns tend to shield us from issues that we’ve already concluded are more than we want to address or take on.

The schematic of this dream, though, is a little different. This information is coming alive – it’s awakening and opening up. It’s still searching for its parameters in terms of what is right and what isn’t.

The subjective side of the feminine nature knows what the flow is by the way it feels in the body, and what you’re doing is you’re finding yourself fighting that flow (i.e., you’re avoiding the encounters). That creates a veil to a potential greater sense of awareness.

If you think of what is going on in your waking life in relation to this, you could say that you are speeded up because you are out of the comfort zone of your home and in a new place (Las Vegas). That means that certain avenues of connection, within yourself, are able to come out now because of the timing and the place. So you are trying to go through new reverberations within to determine what parts of you are connected and what aren’t, in terms of what you need in this new situation.

So this dream develops your ability, on a sense level, to tell subjectively whether something is right or not right, in such a way that it can open up and you won’t repress it. It’s coming out anyway, so now you have to maintain your sanity in relationship to it.

My dream centers around the scenario of being sick and feeling miserable to a point where I’m unable to put my attention on anything else. As long as I’m dwelling on that, it only enhances my suffering because I’m only looking at things in terms of how they personally affect me. The sickness is consuming me.

At some point in the dream, my soul let go and I stopped focusing on my specific ailments. I just went into a state of emptiness, dropping back from my physical condition to something deeper within. That’s when I notice that I’ve reached a stillness that assimilates my condition.

I wouldn’t have been able to sleep if I hadn’t reached this state. As soon as I start to look at my miserableness again, my condition consumes me. 

What this shows is that when a person transcends dwelling upon particular conditions – anything in life – they’re more able to find a natural flow. The flow comes out from the wholeness, from the overall, and not from our specific details and idiosyncrasies.

I felt a wonderful sensation of allowing myself to be swept along in the overall. There was a peace and quietness that went beyond my physical condition. This was a state where I could experience myself as a part of the whole.

When I start to cough, because I think I’m sick or need to cough, etc., my attention goes back to suffering with my physical ailments instead of letting go and being in a state that’s naturally able to be nurtured.
