A Strange Cohesion

Letting go is a curious process. When we are in a state where something has us agitated, it can feel like the biggest event of all time. Yet, in the next moment, if we have a sudden realization, or simply let go of the attachment, that feeling will disappear as quickly as it came. So, it may seem like these strong emotions are “us,” but, at a certain inner level, we can make a choice for them to be us – or not. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my dream, I open up a letter and am relieved to have received a certificate therein. It’s like a stock certificate in this letter. In the next instant the heart takes a huge dive, just collapses, pangs and shrinks as I go into shock over a bail-in and, or something like that, that suddenly has just happened. 

But it’s only for a split second that I’m like that because, in the next instance, I whiplash back as I denote that I have received this certificate, as evidenced in the dream, I’ve received a protection, or a rescuing or something, by the certificate that’s in my possession

Because all of this is kind of happening at an energetic level the wafts this way and that way, I’m never really sure that what’s in my possession, or the way this has unfolded, is actually right or not, because there’s such a big, big picture about things. 

So the consequence of going first zip and zap leaves me a bit flat. And so, when you’re a bit flat it has two meanings. It has an outer meaning in which the inner and the outer tend to resonate, and consequently, a shocking reflection like that could happen. In other words, you could actually have something like this take place, where everything breaks down and cracks, in terms of the outer, like a bail-in or something. 

And then there’s the inner meaning: upon an energetic level the likely scenario is that you can have a shock to the heart from within, that seems like it’s within, but it’s caused by an outer event that you experience within, that is, in a given moment, quite devastating and debilitating. 

Yet, if you look more closely, you’re relieved from that, if you have reached or realized that you’re not consumed by such actionable events, even on an energetic level, you’ve got to get to a stillness, or, otherwise, you’re still going to have an actual event. And if you’re trying to do something here, or there, or whatever, and it’s actionable, even though you’re working with time and space, in terms of trying to do it in a timeless and spaceless way, you still have an actionable activated part of yourself that’s going at this, and that, in and of itself, can cause some sort of strange cohesion. So you have to drop that actionable part. 

So I have an inner connection to fall back on. The quick whiplash nets out as a beingness that is flat, meaning still stunned and having then to denote a crack up that is like a split upon an energetic level.

The whiplash back results in a flatness; or, although it results in a flatness, maybe this is more like a stillness, as the result of a letting go of a pent-upness from within. I say this because I do not know what to truly make out of such an intense whiplash in which I denoted a devastating crack within – before a deeper meaningfulness redeemed me from that reflective projection. It means I can experience something inside the stillness, so you don’t buy into so much of the outer attempts to get there, or something.

A Profound Step

Today we continue our look at the dreams Jeane described in The Unawakened.

John: So, the first dream began in a dark and desolate place, with you driving around in circles, not getting anywhere. In the second image we see that something has awakened, which is depicted as the baby, and you can either get closer to that or not.

We humans have that freedom of choice. This image is showing that, imbedded deep within you, an aspect of you knows that there’s something more to life than the surface reality. And something has awakened that knowing. Then, the question becomes, will you respond to it, i.e., will you keep this newborn baby?

Humans aren’t required to respond to the call of Creation. If we were, we’d be no better off than programmed robots. So we are given the right to choose to be a part of what is ongoing, or not. In the dream, you’re wrestling with this decision.

Interestingly, in the first image you were driving in circles in a dark landscape, which depicts a robotic life as well. In trying to decide, you begin to deal with a person who is like a robot, assembled of different parts and who needs to be put back together, right?

Jeane: He’s recently been put back together and I’m helping to stabilize things.

John: This deeper part of you has awakened to the fact that the situation around you is not what it appears – it’s a wholeness, not a separation. You realize that you’ve lost a natural connection, so you’re trying to use your limited faculties, plus this quality of the heart that you’ve reached, in order to sort things out, in order to stabilize something or bring something back to life.

So, you’re clawing your way back through the illusion that, in and of itself, is like something that’s desolate and dark, in which you had few faculties with which to deal with it. You were living a robotic-type life.

Suddenly you developed some faculties of an aliveness within, and from that aliveness you’ve come to have realizations that can regain wholeness from separation. You’re on the verge of turning the mechanical man back into a human being (getting him dressed and ready for the outside world). That’s what happens when we choose to honor our human purpose in life: we shift from a robotic, animal-level existence, up to a true human existence.

Of course, that’s where the dream stops. But, if you continue this whole process, you’ll come to link up with an energetic flow that’s behind everything that exists.

It’s the flow that’s real, and in connecting to it, you begin to find out who you really are. I suppose you’re given this opportunity as a way to see just how miserable it is when you don’t have this connection to the aliveness in all of life.

When it’s awakened and alive, then everything can be understood for how it is, as opposed to it being dark and cold as an image that’s devoid of any inner meaning. But you’ve found the depth of the inner meaning and from that you’re able to hear and to listen to that which is meant to be, or to that which is real.

You could say that this is a dream that points out that you’re more than what you think you are. At one point in time you may not have been aware that you had this inner connection and linkage to all that there is, from which you then could nurture or give birth or create or bring about changes in life.

You learn to find the bits and pieces of what is real, you learn to sense the inflections, the hints. To begin with they’re just little bitty inflections and little bitty insights, little flashes or something that hits, because the rest of the time the senses kind of keep you disoriented in terms of an identification with the outer.

Of course, if all you’re capable of doing is identifying yourself in the outer world and you have none of this other awakened inside, i.e., you choose to give up the baby, you’d be back to the very beginning in which something is inanimate in terms of its realness; it’s desolate and dark.

Isn’t that an interesting dream?

Essentially what your dream is telling you is that if we don’t have that cognition inside, how is it possible for us to really understand anything? Otherwise, we just identify with something that’s empty and devoid of meaning.

Unfortunately, this is kind of true for most people out there in life, although they usually have some inkling that there’s something more and, from this something more, they rally around religions and whatnot.

But they do so in a way that has the meaningfulness of the religion conceptualized, and they can actually become dangerous because, if you throw something at them that disorients them from their concepts, they’ll have to fight. They’ll have to crusade. They’ll have to do something to maintain their power and control over their concepts.

You’ve got people like that, who have such a faint, faint echo of light inside them, but that’s the best that they can get. In your particular case though, this has taken on an aliveness so you’re able to work with the whole of things, because of this ability to link to this part deep inside, and that’s a pretty profound step to take.

Nice Accomodations

Jeane: In my next dream, my nephew and his wife are coming to visit, and I’m trying to explain to them that they can only stay for a few days because the guestroom is primarily your office and you have business to do.

When they arrive and we walk into the guestroom, I suddenly see that my maternal grandmother and an aunt are with them. I’m looking around wondering what I’m going to do. Then I notice that in addition to the bed we have in there now, there’s suddenly a single bed, which is one of those chairs that folds out into a bed, as well as a curved couch.

I’m just looking around in confusion wondering how all of this furniture got in the room without me noticing it. I don’t like the thought of my grandmother or aunt sleeping in such a little space, but it’s what we’ve got.

John: This dream works on the premise that something is askew or missing. Yet whatever you have at your disposal turns out to be sufficient.

It’s as if there’s a self-consciousness that you carry in your nature, as if you have expectations that are inappropriate, or you have an image problem in terms of how things are, or you feel a sense of collapse in the way you perceive yourself, versus the way the situation is.

You’re dreams have gone to great lengths to try to indicate that there’s a space that you’re able to hold onto or catch up with that will make things work out no matter what you’re dealing with. In other words, you can find yourself in a scenario in which others might consider you the oddball, but you’re able to flip that in some fashion. In doing so, you hit a depth of recognition inside that could be said to correspond (or provide an answer) to whatever the peculiar condition is at the moment.

It’s showing that you have resources at a deeper level, but you are unconscious to them. However, when the situation arises, you find they are there and you didn’t know it. So what might seem to be a big problem on the surface level, at a deeper level turns out not to be a problem at all. The dream shows you being able to self-correct when you go off in a particular way; you’re able to present something as it is and then shrug it off. It’s good to do that.

For instance, when a family member visits they might be overwhelmed a bit by the accommodations, yet you are able to hold and absorb the note. The room you offer may not correspond to expectations, but it is what it is under the circumstances. And you don’t try to portray it or uphold it in some exaggerated fashion, you can just be quite natural with it and it will work out.

The dream has a tempering quality to it, and what it’s tempering is the common reaction to a situation where something is less than it should be, and that’s to go off on some tangent about it. Something in the way you’re holding, or carrying yourself, prevents that from happening.

By not going off on a tangent, you ultimately find access to deeper reserves within, where you have everything that’s needed. In other words, something is enabling you to flow with the circumstances you find yourself in, without reacting in an over indulgent, personal way.
