Posts Tagged ‘In the Flow’

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.

fdb2Well, now, wouldn’t it be great to have the control of a director over our own life, right up to the Hollywood ending? Of course, deep inside, that’s exactly what we’re trying to do every day. But life is an energetic unfolding, and events that weren’t possible yesterday can become possible today – but we’ll override that possibility if we are intent on controlling the unfolding. And, ultimately, it is our energetic configuration that creates our future, because our energetic makeup attracts other energies like a tuning fork, and they bring in, or not, our future possibilities.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Then I have a dream in which there’s a man who’s training a small group of teenage boys, as well as a small group of teenage girls, to go out and commit a robbery at a bank. It’s not a real robbery, it’s more like a training, but they have to go out and pull it off in the real world to be successful.

And the first time they do it, but it’s really close. In fact, they even have to rob some police, or FBI, people that are in a truck. They’d robbed something from them. And I’m a little on edge observing all of this because then, when he gets back, he wants to send them out again so they get even smoother at what they do.

And they’re just going to repeat what they did before, but I kind of realize this is a disaster because the thing about teenagers is they have certain egos where they think they’re doing something better than they are, and they get a little carried away, and they don’t know how to have that succinct timing yet.

So, sure enough, they go out there and they’re going to be taking too long to do everything so, you know, they’re going to get caught. So I go out and I’m kind of rounding them up, and harassing them,, to just stop the whole process of what they’re doing, even though it’s incomplete, and to get in the elevator and get back to where we were.

The girls are even further behind the boys in whatever they’d started to do, but both had gotten distracted and, you know, would’ve been caught. So I’m just harassing them to get them out of there and get them back to where we started.

John: Well, this is a dream that, essentially, is requiring you to take notice of how you feel under both circumstances: whether you’re part of the perpetration of what’s going on, or you’re seeking to limit it in some fashion from occurring – because you consider it a waste of time, or prankish, or whatever.

In either scenario, one being kind of the flip side of the other, there is an energetic aspect that is distinguishing in terms of the whole. In other words, either there’s the acting up, or there’s the attempt to control the acting up, or to guide, or to steer, the acting up in accordance with what you’re inclined to think is better.

And, in each case, that takes away something from your way of feeling yourself, in terms of feeling yourself with an openness that is a wholeness. And, of course, the theme of the dreaming was set by the first dream, which indicates that there are things that are stealing the energy of your breath, that are stealing that life force that you’re attempting to be connected to.

And so then you take and you point out that you do this in a way that you… In other words, you have come to believe that it’s okay for you to regulate, or try to police, something that you see is haywire – as if that’s helping something to grow, or to understand, you know, what is appropriate, much like a mother does to a child.

And it’s kind of a quality of the feminine to think that it has to direct what the unfoldment needs to look like, and when you get into doing that, then you’re into making a distinction about things, just like the prankishness is making a distinction about things.

And whether you’re doing it that way, or the opposite, the effect is the same. It causes me to remember what it’s like for a person who takes and reveals something that is wrong in society, and that person thinks that he’s doing society a favor by exposing it, but what happens is the whistleblower gets just as much heat, maybe in some cases more, than what is being exposed.

And so the point of this dreaming is to point out that you don’t need to do such things because, as shown in the first dream, that steals your breath, steals the energetic of your being.

flow-of-time

James Alan Smith

The flow is always available to us, yet it is always moving on. If we lose our connection, it moves on without us. That means we have to realign ourselves and reconnect – to where it has moved to, not to where we last were. That’s the nature of the real reality: it’s constantly evolving forward whether we are with it or not. Can we, as individuals, afford to be left behind? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The next dream points out just how far off one really is in terms of doing this process. I mean, you tend to see yourself as having experiences and certain realizations, and so you’re inclined to think that you’re making headway. But in the next dream it shows that our idea of what the flow and the naturalness is, if we really, really were to denote how it is, we are really way, way off, and that we are constantly blowing it, and blowing it in ways that we can’t make it back up. It’s like there’s just too much in life to be able to make things up where you miss something.

So, in this dream, I’m taking a dance class. To begin with I’m able to kind of limp along, and kind of fake it, because I realize I’m just not getting something. In fact, I am so bad at it that I realize that when I look at others, especially those that seem to be doing just fine, and they can do it effortlessly, I realize that my struggle of not getting it stands out, as far as I could see. It bugs me, it bothers me, but I still have hopes of squeaking through in the class. In other words, if I just keep doing it and whatnot maybe I’ll get my D-minus or something, you know, be passed more or less but, not really have mastered or caught up with anything.

And this is a class that is graded. It counts for two credits at the university I’m at. I hate it, and I’m so sensationally thrown off by it that I skip a class, purposely skip a class, as if, you know, at least I don’t have to subject myself to the misery now – for at least this time. But I didn’t take into account that upon having skipped a class, now I’m really out of it, and there’s no way I can catch up. There’s no way I can really go back.

So the dream ends with me observing the class off to one side, towards the end of the class, and I’m noticing that those who I had admired before, that were able to do things kind of naturally, and fluidly, and effortlessly, have now been put into positions by the teacher in which they direct and even lead others. And so there’s a wonderful flow to it all, in other words, instead of it all just being one awkward collage, that it has a whole quality to it that undulates with different ones able to do other things with the class. It looks really good, in terms of what they are doing.

It’s at that point that I realize that, for me, it is hopeless and that I am going to get an F. I’m wondering if this will keep me from graduating. Usually you have to have a passing grade in everything to graduate. I wake up dreading the fact that I am going to have to make this up, which means take it over, to graduate, something I hate to do because I passed at it the first time.

And the meaning is, the earlier dream set the theme. It indicated I had to adhere to an inner into outer connection as part of the Tariqa, meaning the flow, or the process, or path that I’m on, and in that dream that is what I saw as having unfolded. And I had, as the dream indicated, a certain natural way that I seemed to observe it. And maybe I was even in that dream thinking I was doing better than I was, because in this dream I notice if you fail to stick to, or catch anything, miss something of importance, or when you drop off when things get difficult that that puts you in a process of experiencing and miserableness, on a sensation level, that is equivalent of the vibration of blowing it.

And, in the end, you realize that if you had probably stuck it out you may have gotten by although it wouldn’t have been pretty. So in the end in I notice that those who got it, and found their naturalness, turned out to be very inspirational and directive and added to the whole beauty of the whole process of flow, in terms of themselves and others. I was impressed to see this, and in seeing this realized that the teacher had seen this all along – because when I was blowing it and whatnot I acted like I was able to kind of hide behind the radar screen, but you don’t hide behind anything.

So in the first dream, as hard as it is to find what is natural in the unfoldment in life in the outer world, I am seeing that I have a natural linkage to the understanding that the unfoldment is inner into outer.

In the second dream, I’m unable to take anything for granted, lucky to be barely getting by. The miserableness of the struggle is accentuated. Again, this is a flow of something that you have to catch from within in order to do it, you can’t just memorize certain actions because dancing involves a flow. It may have some set principles that you start with, but then they have to fall into the flow.

In this dream I realize that checking out from a key element of the unfoldment process is something I am unable to make up. In other words, I can’t just suddenly get it by osmosis. In other words, I can’t skip one week or whatever and so I fall away from the process, which means when you fall away you’re going to have to do it again.

Such a dream can’t help but cause me to wonder to what degree is that happening now, and in ways that I am not getting it? The dream is also designed to cause me to wonder what it is in the outer that I am doing which points this out. I say this because when a person is relating to the outer in a way that isn’t working out for them, in terms of an unfoldment, that the outer points back to some inner flow natural awareness that is a bit askew. Like they say, as above so below.
