Posts Tagged ‘integrating the feminine within’

John: As this dream begins, I’m at a wedding reception that’s slowly ending. I sense that a woman has traveled a great distance to see me. This woman is someone from my past and she’s waiting outside the reception.

Inside, I’m with a woman who needs to pause for some reason. I have to accommodate that because there’s a subtle effect that needs to happen, and I can’t force it or influence it; it has to unfold naturally.

I can feel the energetic anticipation of the woman outside, but she has no idea what to expect because I haven’t seen her for years. She is a woman who’s easily wounded. I just want to strengthen the way she feels about herself so she’s better able to cope with life. She’s prone to despair and depression. She takes everything out on herself. 

I keep supporting her energetically in the hope that this pattern can change. I know that behind this affliction is a very beautiful person, but she reveals her wounds by the way she carries herself.

This woman doesn’t know anything about my current life. On some level she knows she can’t be with me, but she’d like to lean on me for energetic support nevertheless. Somehow this strengthens her ability to cope with her despair.

The woman I’m with doesn’t know this is going to happen, and the woman I’m meeting isn’t aware that I’m in an established relationship. Without saying a word to either of them, this is what I expect to happen when they meet: The woman I’m with (whom I know has the ability) will immediately recognize the dynamics of the situation through her more conscious or developed state.  

In other words, I expect the woman I’m with not to feel inner reverberations of doubt, in terms of her own security, and to see that I’m only trying to help this other woman.

The other woman holds onto her mannerisms (despair and hardship) because they’re related to how she sees herself. But this inability to let go keeps her set in her ways. I don’t believe she’s really that limited; she can break free.

I know, but can’t explain to either woman, that there’s an intangible energy each of them carries that will make a difference for both of them – as it naturally integrates.

For this to work I need to support it as a spontaneous effect between them. When the visiting woman sees me with and the woman I’m with, she’s going to visibly despair. The woman I’m with will see this, but should know that this doesn’t affect her in our sense of togetherness.

My concern is that the woman I’m with won’t embrace the other woman and her energetic will be dismissive. But her greater consciousness could cause her to rise to the occasion and immediately accept what she sees for what it is. I know that if this happens, integration will occur in that split second. 

The woman I’m with will have more compassion as a result, and the other woman will find the acceptance she needs. Thus the strong part of the feminine and the weak part of the feminine will come together. This rarely happens as an intertwined integration, but I know this is what needs to happen.

When these two parts come together a natural healing will occur on levels that I can’t begin to describe. From a masculine point of view, this is all I want, nothing more: for the imbalances in each to be soothed and even healed. It’s something I couldn’t do on my own. For this to succeed, each woman needs to see beyond the outer appearances – what’s important here is intangible. 

If the energetic connection is not made, the opportunity will be lost. The the experience will only serve to reinforce the despair in the woman visiting, and the fear in accepting the unknown in the woman I’m with. If the woman I’m with doesn’t feel her space has been violated, then the compassion she naturally carries will close the intangible gap with ease.  

This dream is showing how in every environment we find ourselves, energetic ripples radiate all around. Everything in an environment can potentially benefit, and gain insight, from everything else.

We see that two feminine aspects within me, each supported by my masculine nature, need to unite. Separately, each one has their own psychological hindrance that limits them. Coming together completes an energetic in the world (because it’s not about them, it’s about the whole).

The feminine that’s being very bold – given its weakened condition, i.e., having traveled a great distance without an invitation – knows that it needs to be integrated into a greater whole, but doesn’t know how to do that. This negative feminine energy is despairing because it remains energetically deprived.

The feminine I’m with is much stronger, more developed, and more capable of acceptance and forgiveness, which can enable the integration of the two and a healing to occur. If that happens, a healing within me will occur.
