Posts Tagged ‘is a spiritual journey for me?’

walathNot all spiritual travelers need look like the Dalai Lama or Mother Teresa.  There is much work needed to be done in the universe and, just like here on Earth, everyone has unique skills and capabilities and can find their role in the unfolding process. A spiritual journey can be done through gardening, or through being a parent, or by being a musician. In fact, almost anything a human could think of can be elevated to the level of a spiritual journey – if one has the intentions of being in service to a greater purpose.

John: In my meditation dream it just kind of opened up by waking up with a couple of statements that I had to untwine. And sometimes I can sit then back into those interesting statements from somewhere and go to the depth of the vibration, in terms of the imagery of a dream, then, that lies behind it.

And so the first statement that I have, that’s really loud, that almost drowns everything out when I wake up is: I have to be able to see the bottom, or it makes no sense getting in the water.

And then when I go to check out to see, because it’s a scenario, I impose my way to go and check out and see the water, and look at the water, to see if one could see to the bottom. And there’s a certain resistance to me maybe seeing it like that because, can I leave it be? Then there’s the statement: great, I can get in the water, but not today, because I’m not allowed to yet.

So the the dream aspect of it is, there is a family I know going swimming. It’s kind of like there’s a flow of water; it’s not like a river, but it does flow, and it has a certain depth to it, too, where it can go deep down. And the way this family goes swimming is they go into it and, at first, until I walk right up to the water and look at the water, I just assume they’re just going to swim, but, no, the key to enjoying this is to be able to dive down. And I push my way to this area.

So, in other words, what they’re doing is natural for them; it’s kind of how they’re situated. And I have somehow or another reached, or pushed, my way into this area, and have been allowed to push myself into the area because I have agreed – with the father of the family – that I will not go into the water because it is not right yet for me to do it.

And so I’m allowed to push myself into the area where I could come before the water, but not walk right up on top of it to look down to see that you can see right to the bottom. When I did that, that was a little bit, a little bit much, but that’s what I did. Because having come this far I want to see if I can see the bottom.

And I’m excited that this is possible and, also by doing this, I come to realize by getting closer that the temperature of the water is quite pleasant. What I do not understand in terms of this dream has to do with the agreement I made when I got to this place. I made it with the father. The agreement was, if allowed to come here, that I wouldn’t get into the water, and I must keep my word because this is what I agreed to.

But when I came this far, what I did was overstep the agreement by actually going and looking into the water and seeing to the bottom. That wasn’t anticipated that that would happen, but I just did that part almost on my own. So I do seem to be a bit at odds with myself, however, because even though I made the agreement the allure was such that I looked at this water and then there is this someday thing in which, after pushing through, the statement is made that I can get in the water but not today; honoring the agreement, but having looked a bit too much.

And the meaning is, in my case, it seems that I am intended to go through the ups and downs of life, and take note of that, but not go into the water because it is agreed by me that if I am able to see the water, I agree to only make note about it, but not check out from a journey. So I have to step back into the process and continue to work things out in terms of what is important on the path.

The significance is that I’m doing the process this way because my purpose and role is to portray the path, and the journey, and what is involved on the way to a truth, consciousness, and bliss. And is part of a truth, consciousness, and bliss, too, because if done right the inner and the outer is all revealed through the path.

So I have agreed that I will not take what I see for myself, and I will keep doing the work needed in manifestation, although I have to admit I am surprised at how hard it was to step back, and I experience the vacillation and tug within to make an exception somehow, if possible. But the agreement was the agreement. I could come to this place, but I would step back and not take myself out of the unfoldment process.

So why this is of a greater importance: I’m able to see, appreciate, and understand more of the inter access of what it is like to be in physical manifestation, and how to contend with the spiritual illusions that many on this path tend to blank out. Because I keep stepping back, based upon the understanding that was agreed to long ago, in other words, stepping back and going home in a way, from leaving whatever it is that I can get beyond, I am able to see the subtle problem that exists in most physical paths in which there is a going into the depths too quickly, or going into the depths and staying there, rather, whether it’s too quickly or not is another thing, and staying there, because it can be done when you get that far.

So to offset the problem, I must remain able to let go so that I am able to cope, but not go so deep that I’m not able to come back out into the journey process to deal with what I agreed to do.

im234agesIt is a wonderful urge to want to help someone or something, but there’s a caveat: everything is in process, and everything has its own timings. So when we seek to prevent someone from having a painful experience, we can’t know what lessons they may need to learn. In fact, in terms of other people, in terms of the planet itself, and in terms of universal purpose the most effective way we can be a help is to continue our development, because a developed life elevates all the lives it touches, which makes more possible for those lives.

John: Then here’s another kind of one that’s a little shocking.

In this dream a dynamic exists where I find that I go about teasing people who fall for the prank that I tease them under over and over again. This is a trait I always do. I seem to do that. I’m always setting something up. I’m a prankster. I keep hoping and thinking that in doing this it will cause something to get it, and find it odd in that even though I’m play acting the result and the reaction is as if it is real.

So what it’s doing is I keep doing something that shocks this person, and then in their shock there’s the split second of shock where they take it too literally, and I keep trying to get the person to see what it is, and how it is, that they are responding each time, over and over and over again. That there really wasn’t ever anything going on. I make that really plain.

Thinking that if they could see themselves they’ll get it, and the way I try to get them to visualize this is I make the comment that, if a picture were taken of the effect of what I’m doing upon them, in terms of how they react and fall for it, in some fashion each time, if they could just see the picture of that reaction, that shock, eventually they would see through their trance and, as a consequence, quit putting themselves under it. And that means that they would take a step into a greater freedom of themselves, rather than always falling into the same habituations and reaction over and over again.

The meaning is the ability to step back and watch, which is kind of what I’m trying to do when I take and shock and tease a person is to get them to step back and watch, just like I watch, or be a dispassionate watcher, meaning not something that reacts to every little thing, and that is a step in the path in terms of recognizing what is going on. And what is going on really isn’t what you think is going on, because nothing is going on, and they need to just see that the whole thing is a play act.

Okay, there’s that, but there’s also the other aspect, which is the part of me that partakes in doing this sort of thing as a dynamic. I let everybody know it’s an obvious spoof, and that by diffusing it like this I’m hoping to be able to reflect and inflect an insightfulness for others to get. And I do this sort of thing a lot, and I will act real serious about something hoping to flip it a bit to break a stigma, or trance.

This is a dream that is causing me to look at the mannerisms, both mannerisms, that which is attempting to do something, and that which isn’t; because you can get caught. It’s kind of a cynical thing; you can get caught in that, too. By looking at it I am able to better see what works and what doesn’t. In other words, the cynical aspect of approaching it like that, and playing like that, is still separate, and distant, and aloof.

So, at some point when I see that the shock keeps happening over and over and over again, and that there is nothing that’s changing, conceivably, then, I’m supposed to get it in terms of what works, and what doesn’t.

And so what I’m supposed to be able to see is that when something is too much, and I’ll notice it as being too much when over and over and over again something keeps repeating, what that means is that I have to actually, instead of keep the distance, I have to come down into life. I have to relate more directly with how something is in terms of how its at, and where its at, for there to be the participation of an intertwined nature – or otherwise, in a roundabout way, I will be keeping something hypertensive instead of breaking through.

The idea is to build something up, just like with the bum the idea was to offer an atmosphere so that the bum could go somewhere, and can get somewhere, could be somewhere. And in your dream the idea was to recognize that you just needed to hold a space, which is like an atmosphere, as opposed to relate to either part, either the ancient part that echoes in some capacity that can have a fascination, and you can indulge in the fascination, or on the part in which there is still something that you feel that makes life easier that you need, and that these are the levels upon which, in a feminine way of looking at things, in terms of your feminine way of looking at things, that everything rides in terms of its in-betweenness to some degree or another.

And what you find is important is this other part, what you come to glean is this other part, that comes to realize that whatever your placement is in life, to some degree you need to see that it has a certain quality of vibration, that there always is some quality of vibration, and that a true traveler doesn’t indulge whatsoever in any of it. So these are the sleep dreams.

aura_luceWhen we begin a spiritual journey, it can be seen as a type of reaching up, a way to rise above the planetary aspects (personal) to the more universal view of things (in service to something higher). But, at a certain level of development, that changes. That’s when we become a conduit for higher energies into this planetary world. And that is a very great service, to give access, because what is given access can then reach everyone else we come in contact with. This is one of the unique possibilities of our human design, and it brings new possibilities to the situation.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, in this next dream, it’s like I’ve gone into an office where I’m going to see a client. I’m going to be counseling. It feels like I’m kind of new to the office.

I have like a cubical, where there’s a lot of light, where I’ll be taking someone in and counseling. and then over to my left there’s a couch there, that’s just in the office area, where people can come and sit. And there’s a rather graceful looking woman reclining on that.

Behind there are three desks where various clerical, or secretarial staff, will keep things organized are sitting. And I’m walking around at this point in time, I don’t have a client yet, looking for paperwork, and looking for the paperwork history on the client I’m going to be seeing in a while, and just trying to get myself organized because it feels like I’m new to this office.

And then one of the gals tells me that my client’s here, but, just as I go to get my client and bring her in the room, I suddenly notice again, but more markedly now, this rather gracious lady that’s reclining on the couch. And I’m suddenly wondering: was she a client that had come, that I was supposed to see before this lady, and no one announced her? Or was someone supposed to be seeing her, and no one noticed she was there?

I can’t counsel one person with another person right there in the room that hasn’t been taken care of. And I suddenly look at one of the secretaries, who’s looking like, well, maybe they did forget to do something like tell me a client was there, or find whoever was supposed to see her.

The lady herself is very quiet and gracious and doesn’t seem to be worried about anything, but I’m suddenly kind of thrown off a bit because how did we all not, you know, take this into account or something? I’m kind of suddenly in a little bit of Limbo. I’m hoping I didn’t forget, you know, and if the secretary forgot I guess she’ll handle it, but it’s just kind of a feeling of being a little thrown off by that.

John: The thing about this woman is she’s completely relaxed and composed; you don’t see anything wrong with her. That’s the dilemma, all right. That pulls it together in relationship to my dreams. That’s why I was about to say, and said at the very beginning, that the nature of this kind of dreaming is that you almost wonder if you’re losing your mind because you start to perceive things in a slightly different context.

Previously our dreaming has been such in which we have to always denote where we come from, meaning, you know, that we’re grounded in a particular way and have to go through issues in life. And that we need to work off our edges, and everything else, in terms of the conditions in our environment.

And that, as we do that, we become more and more conscious in a functional way, having worked with As Above, So Below kind of a way, in which there is that balance and contrast, in that one is like Yin Yang, one supports the other.

But, in your first image, you took and you extricated yourself into a station in which you were able to relate, or project, across to others. You’ve gathered up all of your belongings, as best you can, in order to do that, and you’ve opened up a whole new can of worms in that process because you’re no longer working things out in terms of having to scramble in terms of the complexities of pressure in the outer.

You’re, instead, sitting in a position that has an effect that projects out, and that’s why it had the image. As you were telling it I was just looking at this image of a spiral going laterally. I couldn’t believe that that you’d be telling this, and I was just staring at this thing going laterally, like a spiral notebook going laterally. So then when you talk about the snakes and the snakes, and the image of a snake is part of the Kundalini going up, and the snakes are eating themselves; they’re crawling on the floor. So they’re being held by their tails and their heads are down on the ground.

But it’s a reversal, isn’t it? In other words, the snake climbs and goes up, and this is off the ground, held by the tail. In other words, the whole idea is the struggle in life is a little different now, in that you have something that you have to convey or relate. Can you bring it through? Can you bring it down?

It’s not a question of sorting things out anymore. It’s a question of causing; it’s a question of relating in a way that effectuates others who are still seeking and searching to figure something out. In other words, you’re in the band. You’re pulled into the band, and you had to gather up your belongings, and you’re spiraling sideways which means that whatever you do it effectuates something in a downward way.

Your change, and how you have to take something into account, is in relationship to that kind of flow now, or effect. In other words, you’re affected by how it is that others are able to relate in terms of how you are able to be.

So this is further accentuated with the client that sits in the office, that’s the sum total of an aspect of yourself. In other words, when a psychologist is working with the client they’re actually working with parts of themselves, and yet the client sitting in your office is complete and content and whole in and of herself. And yet you still have the sense that you have to bring something down into others, but you’re shown that the quality of yourself is meant to hold a particular space.

In other words, you don’t have the Kundalini energy with the snake going up. You have the energy of the snake coming down, and you are sitting in a position with the spirals going laterally with the snake coming down. In terms of your setting, your setting is something in which the client that is sitting there is complete and whole, the client is yourself. Because it is said that, as a general rule, psychologists are psychologists because they’re on a path to discover something about themselves.

I mean that’s like an outer change. I think we shift and we change as we go about living in different environments. I think you shift and you change when you go to a program, and that for awhile things can be haywire, in terms of what you’re doing just before you go to a program, because there’s a sense in the ethers that a change is afoot. It’s almost like one’s shifting. Around here you may have a sense of responsibilities and this, that, and the other that’s quite contractive, and now all of a sudden you’re seeing yourself as having to hold a particular kind of position, or presence, or a way of being, and relate from there – as opposed to struggling to sort things out, climbing properly with the Kundalini energy you’re dealing with the depths of yourself in terms of the heights of something.

Instead it’s like you’re in an expanse that’s somewhere else, and now having to take and function from that expanse, in a more whole way, in relationship to an environment. You don’t go down into such an environment and try to sort yourself out in relationship to that environment. You instead go down into that environment as an effect.

In other words, your being is that of having a particular kind of effect upon life. And how that effect resonates back, is now what you contend with in terms of your way of being – as opposed to getting into the predicaments and having to sort out the complexities, and then contending with that from kind of like above/below, below/above kind of condition. Now you’re more in a level, or station, or something, a kind of quality station able to relate downward. That’s a lot like a teacher does.
