Posts Tagged ‘in the flow of energy’

In our curiosity we tend to see something new and then want to take it apart and see how it works (this is more an aspect of the masculine energetic). It’s an effort to name something, and, in the naming, to believe we know it. But the process of naming something also becomes its limiting factor. In a certain way, for us to better understand something in its fullness, letting it flow through us, and letting all of our different faculties experience it, without a label, enables an unconscious knowing to then rise into our consciousness later. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m drawn to a place inside that I can see within my mind’s eye. I don’t know why I find this interesting, other than the fact that I somehow know that this is a place that’s going to be quaint, and there’s a curiosity to it in its stillness, or something, or in its quaintness. 

So as I seem to come closer to this place, to see why I’m drawn to it, rising up within is a vibration where I can see that, in an invisible sort of way, what started as a kind of innocent enough allure has a magnetic quality for a reason I can’t put my finger upon other than I feel the allure to this. 

And this allure results in a $30 million silent effect upon the place. I say silent in that it is a vibratory effect that isn’t visible, per se. It’s an energetic and, because it’s invisible and it’s an energetic, there is no putting a personal finger upon it, per se, because it has more to do with the capacity of something exuding out in an unseen and unforeseen way. 

At no time can I say what this is, per se, because it’s flowing through me, except that it’s an invisible thread that is not associated with anything that I know about this place other than I feel a curiosity, interest, intrigue, in a quaint way, and is an effect that seems to be a naturalness there. And then there is something from this capacity, and it’s like an intangible response or reply, and the effect of that is 28 million. 

So what is going on is, I believe that from the capacity of the heart it is possible to embrace a greater beingness in the spaciality. Greater beingness meaning like something that you don’t put your finger on as having an intangibleness that is just readily apparent. To the degree matter and the environment are involved in a subtle way of denoting that a flow of energy has a barely visible identity footprint. In other words, to the degree that you suddenly denote that, then, from this barely visible identity footprint that isn’t specifically denoted – it’s a barely visible identity footprint because of the seven, in other words, 35 minus 28. That’s the portion of the energy that comes through that creates lack of visibility – otherwise there wouldn’t be. That’s the dense part yet. 

So that’s why I say it’s a barely visible identity footprint. It’s not defined per se, other than it has something to do with something existing to flow through. And then what rises from that flowing through, as a response back, is also in a capacity in the wholeness intertwined with a spaciality that cannot be sorted out, nor can you put your finger upon it, in a personal-nuanced way anymore. That’s the 28. 

If this were something I was compelled to denote, in terms of the denseness of an effect, this would denote a demeanor of consciousness causing a sight and sound to predominate on a personal level of ego separation. In other words, I’m describing what it would look like if you step back and it was all something that got pulled into the plane of it making sense in terms of our separate sight and sound. 

But, in this meditation dream, that isn’t what is happening, because I am instead embracing a feeling capacity, which is an energetic that exudes through me, and nothing more. It’s left at that. Therefore, there’s no sight or sound, there’s no ego to that, there’s no personal way that can be associated with that to me.

John: At first I didn’t even think I was dreaming – it seemed like I was actually seeing how information comes through. Then I realized, yes, I’m dreaming – it’s not a pure, inner dialogue.

For example, I saw that everything that happened during our trip to Egypt was relevant and depicted something that was unfolding. But what we saw on the surface could cause us to be reactive. Some days it was too hot and we were uncomfortable, and in many instances the vibration from the people begging in the street was severe. The trip, at times, actually felt a bit arduous. Because of that, there was no way we could fully grasp what it meant.

Therefore there were a lot of barriers to us being able to read between the lines and get something back, as a language, or a communication, from everything that was before us. Still, Egypt, seemed to be a portal to something else.

The distractions I just described happen all the time, in every environment. It’s hard not to let the surface events of life completely engulf us. Yet Egypt seemed to invite a certain focus of attention, almost asking if we could decipher what it had to say, or to appreciate it in some deeper fashion.

The way I saw this in my dream was that everything that happened around me had information contained in it. This information appeared to me as small pods that I could squeeze and they would reveal what was really going on at a deeper level.

If I didn’t acknowledge the pods, i.e., if my inner noise (reactivity) predominated and I didn’t realize that there was something more within the pods, the knowing of that would come to me as a dialogue, or a revelation.

In Egypt, for example, when I saw the children begging in the street, I had an appalled reaction; I let it affect me, generating an inner noise that deafened me to anything else. These surface mannerisms surrounded me in a kind of sloppy denseness, but behind them was something much more.

So these images have to do with an ability to pull events apart, so to speak, to reveal the deeper relevance behind them. It felt like everything was speaking to me in this way. I was being shown how to get the essence, or purity, from the situation, which on the surface appeared untouchable or unapproachable.

In one particular image, I was told that some strange type of animal gave milk – I don’t think it was a cow or a goat – and she would reveal her mysteries if she submitted to me for milking.

I had to have a particular focus that was clear-cut, and I had to exude a certain presence, only then would I have sway over the animal. Otherwise she would be wild and would maintain her separateness. This animal must have had 30 or 40 teats, and from each one I would just get just one drop of very pure essence milk.

As I was going around I saw that there were people who had some other pods and I would squeeze those little pods and their substance would drip into the milk, to give it some other essence.

I noticed that when I felt a tendency to get indulgent, the animal would get restless. She was willing to surrender if my intent was part of the flow, but if I started pondering things and trying to figure them out, then I caused a break in the natural unfolding.

This next image was the closest one to revealing what I perceived in this directed-voice way:

There was a series of images that were trying to direct me to look at them in a settled-back, quieter way. If I did, I would see something that I wouldn’t see if I was just identifying with the surface chatter, or with the outer chaos of things.

If I could maintain this quieter view, then I was able to experience a free-flow dialogue that indicated what was going on around me, i.e., how life was being touched, how it was awakened, and how it was revealed to me on this other level. For that to happen I had to let go of any personal involvement and be natural with this all-inclusive, revelatory dialogue and flow.

There’s also a deeper meaning in that there’s an impulse in my nature that sometimes causes me to predict things in a forceful or definite way. This imagery is showing me that when I do that, when something in my nature gets too loud, it veils my connection.

We all get punished for the loudness in our nature because, if we’re quieter, we can actually hear what’s meant to be. If we’re really loud, then all we’re doing is getting caught up in our own neuroses; i.e., neuroses that make us think that something relevant or important is going on in the outer and, thereby, excluding the more subtle importance underneath.

What’s important reveals itself when we settle back and take in the vibration, quietly and appreciatively, and note the subtle connections and flow.

What’s really happening in these scenarios is a violation of the flow, and this causes me to become ungrounded. Whenever I identify with the flow in a personal way, I’m disturbing the natural connection. If I were to stop doing that and let everything speak to me in its way, a most gracious appreciation for how everything intertwines would be recognized.

In a sense, my reactions take me away from the essence of myself. Everything is here for my benefit if I can let go of projecting myself onto it. When the heart is quiet and tranquil, creation reveals itself. It’s only in terms of the whole that a consciousness of connectivity is reached.

John: My dream is short but deals with the issue of hearing something from somewhere else, instead of hearing one’s own prerogative or personal view.

The way I describe it is that I’m presented a situation in which I need to offer my decision. That’s kind of how things are – we’re always confronted with making decisions about things. But this time I’m shown how a person should go about determining what decision is meant or intended.

I find myself indicating to someone that I can’t arbitrarily make such a decision on my own, because it would be overreaching. It would be exceeding my capacity. One can exceed their capacity, but they get very personal when they do because they exceed their ability to stay connected. I have to indicate that, although I have the authority to make an arbitrary decision, I must follow a process.

Well, actually it’s not really a process. It’s a state in which I have a sense of the whole, passing through me all the time, and I can hear it. It’s the difference between the human approach to freedom of choice, usually based on quick reactions after weighing a sense of personal gain or loss, and the divine approach to human freedom of choice, i.e., real choice. 

What I see is that there’s a cylinder – a round object. It’s a sphere in space that I’m linked to and before I do something I have to determine that my linkage is acceptable in relationship to the whole of this sphere. In other words, I have to find what I need within the sphere. 

Thus I will not render an opinion or decision on my own without first determining that it’s something that’s findable within the sphere, within the connection linkage to the whole. I’ve come to realize that I’m interconnected with something that involves the overall, so if I’m presented with a situation that requires a decision, I can no longer just let my mind jump around, putting pieces this way and that way as I see fit.

If I go that route, I’m making a personal decision. That’s because all the angles I check or solutions I see will be based on the positive or negative impact on me – which is completely personal.

From a more universal perspective, I know that what happens in the density of life is subject to change. New situations call for new reasoning, not something from the past. At an earlier point in time a certain decision might have been okay, but in terms of listening to the change agent of life itself, listening to what serves the whole, that prior decision may not be appropriate anymore. So, I just can’t make a snap decision about something, even if everyone expects it.

If I feel that there’s something more on the inner, I have to go against everybody in the outer, in the collective. Even if everyone else is making decisions based on their own small way of looking at the world, I have to go into that cylinder, that interlinked sphere, and see what it wants to come through. It’s the only way I can be sure that I’m not just deviating into the personal like everyone else. I have to see, or find, the decision in the larger sphere.

In the dream I go through various options that I’m confronted with and, in each instance, the answer is the same. I have to see if this is something prescribed before I’m able to act. In other words, in order to be properly connected I have to see and act according to what’s needed, not according to what’s desired.

What this dream imagery is saying is that I no longer have the freedom to do as I wish. In following an inner path we reach a point where we have to hand over the reins of our life; we have to follow an inner authority. That inner authority is connected to the universal, and the linkage is made firm by surrendering our personal aspects. So now, when confronted with an issue, I can no longer act according to my whim, fancy, or best guess. I must determine if it’s an allowable action. I must determine if it’s written within.

If it’s a part of me on an inner level – which is the same as saying it’s part of the Book of Life – it’s already written in an inner capacity. Every decision that has an effect upon the environment I live in may also have an effect upon the whole. If so, it’s outside my personal authority to act any way I see fit. I must take each issue to a higher authority within to determine what I should do.

The scenario that evoked this dream was a meeting I had with a commercial tenant. Members of the group made decisions that were of a personal nature. At first I thought that’s what I must pay attention to or I would be acting against the overall will of the group. Then I realized that this didn’t sit well with me, so I sought an answer within.

I learned that what actually was happening could have a much different appearance at a deeper level; i.e., the facts could be saying something else. I’m not yet astute enough in reading the Book of Life to see what’s permitted or not; I must read the signs on the horizon.

So, this is a scenario in my outer, waking life that’s pointing me to trusting in this type of inner guidance. It’s trying to tune me in on how to listen.
