Posts Tagged ‘in a trailer in a dream’

im908In our waking life, we have perspective on whatever we are open to, or allow, or invite into our thought processes. Some of that comes from our unconscious. But our unconscious sees the everything that we are doing, and can show us that greater perspective through our dreams. We may have repressed aspects of our life that we have never been able to resolve, but our dreams can give us a neutral way to help sort them out. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in my first dream, I seem to be living in French Canada, and I live a little ways out from a larger city, in a trailer that belongs to someone else. It’s kind of a sweet little trailer, I like it. And I go back and forth between there and town, sometimes. 

But there’s a day when I realize that I’m going to have to move because the trailer, which just belongs to someone else anyway, is out of food. And, because it’s French Canada, there’s a woman that’s a friend of mine there, but I don’t really know many people and I don’t know how to get a job there. So I realize I’m going to have to move on. That was like the first dream. 

John: So what you’re dealing with is you’re dealing with a type of displacement. In other words, you have a quality of yourself that is not able to come truly, totally, into its own because somehow or another you find yourself as being displaced. And, in this displacement, like you say you’re in a trailer, you are in an unusual place in the countryside in Canada, and that you are away from the city, and you are out of food – all images of a displacement.

Now, what’s the deeper meaning of being able to look at yourself as having this particular, we’ll call it, kind of predicament? It’s to point out that there is something, in terms of a greater overallness of yourself, that is repressed, that is unconscious, that is hidden.

Whenever a person has some greater part of themselves repressed, unconscious, and whatnot, that keeps them looking at situations in which there is a type of displacement, or alienation, or not able to quite be where they need to be, or having something deleterious in terms of their environment – amnesic, even – it’s because who they really are, in terms of a totality, is concealed from them based upon a veil. 

And the veil is a veil that is there that is repressed, that is unconscious, that’s traumatic in some sense, and that’s why it got repressed, and unconscious, because it couldn’t be handled in the totality of your being. And it has to come out, and it has to be caught up with, and you have to bring closure to it in order for there to be a fullness of who it is that you really are on all the different levels of yourself. 

And, in this particular dream, the other thing that’s interesting about a displacement, in which you have these component parts that are all over the place, apart: I mean out of food, in a trailer which is temporary, in a foreign area, something that you can’t properly fully relate to, which means it’s a little amnesic because it’s French Canada, separate from a city where others are at – all of those little bits and pieces all point to the need to reach, or catch up with, something more that is sitting in your nature. 

Now the interesting thing about what sits in your nature is it pushes you in some capacity, but it pushes you mostly from an unconscious level. So you can find yourself being a particular way in the outer – and not knowing why it is that you are a particular way in the outer – that if you were able to get to the bottom of would point back to something that you were hiding, or holding, in a repressed condition because it’s too much for you to face.

Now all of this is occurring on the in-breath, and what is needed to kind of pull it all together is a sequenciation of time that can come into the equation. In other words, a linkage, like a thread, just like a ley line or a thread that links the food, the trailer, the French Canada, the city, that links it all together. That’s like a timing that pulls the spaciality together.

And, in your dream, you don’t have that, so you have this discombobulation, and this alienation, from a deeper quality of yourself. Now what also is interesting, when you carry something like that, or have something like that, is that there is a way of looking, and seeing, and, if something is meant to come out and isn’t coming out, it can have a fairly deleterious effect upon your outer beingness, too, as it is trying to break through a veil, or a window.
