Posts Tagged ‘inner guidance of dreams’

pC-n2jpgIt’s been said before, but it bears repeating because it is so rarely made clear: spiritual paths and religions are meant to start us along the path to our human purpose. But, at a certain point, it becomes just us and the universe itself – no one else can help us, or steer us. It is the way of the human design to gain the intelligence and guidance it needs to proceed, and for each of us it’s as unique as we are. Said another way, teachings are meant to help us connect to higher things – but, once we do, we must follow the guidance we personally receive.

John: Well I had a similar dream, in comparison, in which it’s like you and I have gone down into the parking garage. It’s like under some building anyway, some large complex that we live in, and we’re going to what I know is our temporary parking spot.

And, when we get there, I notice there’s a car already there, but also out in the main aisle is a worker who has this bucket on the ground, in the center there, and is taking and finessing some machinery or something, a tube or whatever, up high, up above. And so my assumption is that the parking spot and what’s going on here are somehow correlated.

And, suddenly, as you’re walking by him, I’m behind you and so I’m still kind of watching what is going on there, as you’re walking by, almost as an effect but probably just the way it’s done, he takes and he releases something and, in one fell swoop, into the bucket is this mixture of concrete that just drops, plop, right into the bucket.

And so I say to him, “Do you ever miss?” You know, because it looked like he was aligning or doing something up above. “Do you ever miss?” And he says, “No, never.”

And then he somehow knows that you are supposed to be doing something, in regards to something almost like a school project or something, some project anyway, and so he says to you: “Ignore the speech at the end, but follow to a tee everything else.”

And as he’s continuing to explain how important the first items are at the very beginning, he then kind of pauses, almost as if you might still be influenced by the speech or something even though you’re to ignore it, and he states it – even stronger this time – and he says: “I’ll burn the speech, so you better not pay any attention to it whatsoever.”

And then I turn to you, and I say, “That’s correct, that’s right.” And the reason why I’m able to say “that’s right” is that earlier I had gotten some sort of impression or something, direction, or orders or something that came down and affected me in some way, and realized that apparently whatever it was that I was making out of it was not what it was about.

So that was the dream. And what I wrote up about it, as a meaning, is the status quo in terms of how it is that I see myself situated is in flux. My temporary parking spot is no longer available for my use. My attention is being directed to a work in progress. It is coming down in one fell swoop. I am to ignore what there is to say about the unfoldment, where you can portray it to others, because that takes an absoluteness into the relative. I am to place my undivided attention upon a guidance that I feel within and, to keep from being distracted, burn everything else. I hear and denote this as a here and now, requiring an unwavering attention to what is moving inside me.

From the dream world we can come to see that the best guidance and advice that we have available to us in our lives doesn’t come from another person but from our inner selves, or our higher selves (our connected selves). And that’s because our dreams only show us where we are in relation to what we are struggling with. And dreams have access to that part of us that isn’t veiled by our fears, or defense mechanisms, or any of the learned behaviors that limit our possibility. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I only remember two of my dreams. In one of them, I’m like at college with another girl who’s a friend of mine, and we’re going to one of those large college buildings that feels like it has like marble floors and lots of offices and lots of levels.

And we have a sense that within a day there’s going to be something that will be like an earthquake or a flood in that building, and that there’s a certain experiment that will be lost in one of the labs that one of the professors is doing. And we know no one will listen to us, so we want to save the papers from that experiment.

So she goes down to the lab floor and goes into the professor’s lab and and gathers up the professor’s papers, but then the professor comes in and sees her and won’t let her take the papers out of the lab. So she’s had her shot at it and it didn’t work.

So the next day I come back and I go into the building, but as I start to go down the building’s shaking so I realize the process that’s going to flood it, or cause it to collapse, has already started. And I want to keep going down, but I realize without her with me I don’t know where the lab is. I don’t know which lab room it is, and where the papers are.

So I have to turn around and leave the building. I know there’s a lady at the information desk, but she won’t really give the information to me because it’s the professor’s like private lab; it’s not really a classroom. So I just have to leave the building.

John: What this dream is portraying is that you have a sense of something that’s impending, and that in order to properly handle this you need to go into a depth inside of yourself in which there is something that needs to be opened up, that needs to be recognized, that needs to be received.

In other words, this comes from like a professor, or like a fount of knowledge or wisdom place, but it is accessible not by your natural outer demeanor – because somehow or another you remained reserved towards it. It’s more like an adventurous part or shadow part of yourself knows that there is a connective linkage that is necessary and important at this time.

You still have your qualms about that. You still feel that there is something that shouldn’t be done in this regard, that for some reason you’re reluctant to do that. And that reluctance keeps the veil in place. Just when you might be getting a little more venturous, it’s as if the veil starts to shake and get more vibrant, too, so as a consequence you don’t open up the access to this quality of information and sight, a masculine side of yourself, that is possible if you were to drop whatever imposed stigma you have in terms of this place of learning.

In other words, you’re in a university, but you’re approaching it in your own careful way, as opposed to impelling yourself to not only see but also take on, and take a responsibility for, what lies there within. And the university, of course, is the greater part of yourself, the greater wholeness of yourself, and it is the inner that is in the outer.

tgeDreams are often interesting on many levels. Here a dream about a father can reflect real worries that are happening in waking life. But they also reflect more deeply. In this instance, the characteristics of a real person are used by the subconscious to talk about an inner strength that exists in the dreamer, and points to how the dreamer can be in herself to allow that characteristic to be of service in the balancing of her life and journey.

Jeane: In my third dream I feel like I’m on a tropical island again. I’m with my dad, and I’m just more of an observer in this dream.

And it feels like my dad is still driving, like he’s at the age he is now, 92, and he’s still driving. And then they give him a bus to drive. Well, the first time he does fine, but then when they have him drive this bus, which has people on it, a second time, the bus suddenly goes into this tunnel that’s more like a station, and then there are two or three other buses in there already you don’t even see until you get closer to them. And so it’s very tricky, and there’s a curve right there, and he goes off the edge so his bus falls over, and you feel like some people are injured, or maybe someone’s killed.

And as I’m observing this I’m suddenly really annoyed because I feel like it was one thing for him to drive, but then for them to give him a bus that had to maneuver like that without warning just felt wrong.

John: That’s a very hard dream to understand again. Your dad represents to you something that you’re kind of concerned about, in terms of his age and whatnot, and his well being, and the attention you place upon him also gives back or feeds back something that is important to your nature in terms of reconciling something.

Your dad carries a quality of maybe having an audacity that continues to be able to make strides in the world, irregardless of his age. And yet, to a degree, your nervous concern about that actually is a self-limiting function. In other words, there’s something about the quality of what your dad’s doing, and the character of your dad, that is just fine.

But something about the way that you contend with this inside of yourself, just like your sister is even worse, much worse, in fact, in terms of how she worries about this and worries about that and tries to control this, or stabilize, or however you would say she’s doing this. Notice your dad’s reaction to it. He’s not going to be hemmed in. It’s not like he rejects that because it’s part of him. In fact, he would have it no other way, but he’s also not going to let it hem him in – even if what he does is deleterious. And it’s more apt to be deleterious if he submitted and didn’t hold the particular quality strength.

So what this dream is doing is it’s showing you a strength that you have, or that is in you, that’s part of you, that is represented as the masculine side through your father that gets destabilized and actually will have a complexity, or a problem, or go off the edge if you do not sustain and maintain it with a certain quality focus that’s imperative to the general well being, because how it is that you feel something, how it is that you see something, how it is that you carry yourself is how it’s going to be in the outer.

They’ve run this study, for example, and they have discovered that, they’ve done this medically, that there can be a person who will have, say, cancer, and they just don’t take the normal steps to take care of themselves and go and look at it and deal with it. They just have a positive nature or something, and this is kind of something that as an energetic that they carry, this feature of them having cancer is something that does not really fit. It’s something that may have been a condition brought on based upon how they were in the past, but they’re no longer like that now.

And so as they continue to maintain a certain attention, the cancer goes away. So in this scenario, if they go to a doctor and the doctor looks and they’re shocked that they had this malignancy, didn’t even know that they had this malignancy, their positive nature caused it to go away.

That’s like a miracle, how can that possible be? But then it is shown that then a person comes in, same condition, discovers that they have cancer, is shocked by the thing, gets worried by the thing, and it kills them faster than it should kill them.

So, what happened in terms of this reflective illusion? One had to do with a certain quality or trait in terms of how you carried yourself with a certain auric spatiality, and the other there was the lack of that, and so you were easily broken, or easily fractured.

And this dream is working like that. In other words, your dad carries this trait and quality that keeps him regular, and balanced, and proceeding to go on and on and on and on. Who knows? Could live to be over 100 because he has the right attitude, the right frame of reference, but he has to maintain this in the face of things that are projected at him that he doesn’t dare buy into because it would make him old real fast.

And so this is a dream in which you are shown the perspective of how a certain quality of nature, again it’s an aspect of kundalini energy carried in a cadence, instead of a way that is flying all over the place, carried with a solidity so that it upholds, and maintains, and sustains something that could otherwise be broken down. Isn’t that an interesting dream? Very complicated dreams. Holy cow!
