Milky-Way1Taking everything for granted is a peculiarly human disease. Jeane’s dream images show her developing an insight into this issue, where an awakened consciousness is really the opposite of familiarity. Life and the universe are very subtle. Through greater consciousness we can begin to understand what is really at play, and see the great beauty of it as well. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had a dream in which my cousin, I have a female cousin and her husband, and it’s almost like they had gone through some hard times and they had had to leave a ranch that they were on. It was kind of like a city ranch like it had white fences around it and they had horses. It was a really huge place. 

And meanwhile I seem to be going around looking for a battery. It’s this kind of battery that I get in a box that is a little bit complicated. In the midst of all of this, my cousin and her husband find out that they’re going to be able to move back on their farm. And I go out to visit them and I notice that actually, because the bank had it for a while, they’d even cleaned it up a bit.

But now my cousin and her husband are able to take it back, and so I note that. And then I go to this, it’s almost like a nightclub. I take the battery down to this nightclub because I know that they understand how the battery works. I’ve gone there to figure out more about the battery. 

In the nightclub there’s a black guy who’s kind of in charge but I know over him is a big boss, and it feels like they’re able to explain the battery to me, how to get the battery to work better. That was primarily that whole dream.

John: What you’re indicating in the dream is that – where the parallel comes to the first dream – is that in the first dream is showing that you have something, or that there is something that’s there, that is natural to your nature, that’s just more or less given to you, that you catch up with, or bide your time, or is the part that comes together for you and fulfills an energetic that is a quality of a need that is part of the divine flow. 

It’s not a need that’s part of a type of desire or something – that’s the human inequity that keeps you further veiled. This actually is something that enriches your understanding of who you are, brings you closer – it’s a consciousness thing. 

Well, in this dream you’ve lost it. But what you’re told is that that’s okay because it’s not like it became the lesser or something, that if anything, the appreciation of it was sharpened up. And so, it actually turns out to be a good thing that that happened – as far as you come to understand it. 

The dilemma you have, however, is that to fully take it on you have to increase your energy. You have to deal with the battery, you have to deal with something in terms of how it is that your energetic comes across. 

Now, the thing about a battery is a battery is consistent. A battery kicks out a transmission that functions at a certain steady rate. Well, there’s something about this battery that must not be quite doing what it’s supposed to be doing in terms of its consistency, in terms of the way that it discharges or something. And so that has to be taken in and fixed, or refreshed, or how or whatever that would be to make the battery be more in terms of what it is that it should be that you need. 

That coupled with this other that needs to be coupled with, you need the characteristics of this energy flowing more to be able to take into account that which is meant to be natural to you, that is handed to you, that you’re catching up with again, that you had momentarily lost but you’re not the worse for the wear in the end because when you get it back you have a greater sense of appreciation or something.

So, in a roundabout way, that’s how it’s portrayed for you, portrayed more of something where it’s there, it’s whole, it’s complete. You may have an interlude of time where it fell by the boards, but when you find it again it’s almost like it increased the appreciation. 

It doesn’t suffer from the wear, the missing link has something to do with a way that you carry your energy, however, in terms of this being able to have its reacquired, or reestablished, or naturally coexisting correspondence again.

Jeane: Then I was awake for a while and went back to sleep. And in this next dream it feels like I’m living with my ex, but I’m very independent from him, like I’ve gone out and I’m taking walks with our friend, and talking to him, and kind of have my own life.

Several times I walk by a place where a cat has new kittens, and the kittens are calico kittens and they’re only a few weeks old so they’re just starting to kind of crawl out of this little basket and explore. 

But there’s one kitten that has a lot more white in it, and every time I come around and peek at the kittens some other cat grabs that kitten and hauls it over to where she is. It’s like no one’s going to touch that kitten. I think it’s kind of cute, except I’m not sure that kitten’s ever going to leave the mom. 

But they’re all too young to leave anyway, it’s just that the others are more crawling out and about exploring a bit. And then I go back to the house where my ex is and I find out that he says he wants to talk to me. And I realize I’ve been pretty independent now, so I guess he has his own thing he wants to do. 

But first I think I go and take a shower, and then when I come in to the living room to talk to him he’s laid some stuff out there for me to look at. And it feels like he wants to start studying Jungian psychology, and I’m kind of surprised by that and realize that maybe he just wants to take some money out of our savings to do that.

And, of course, it will have to be fine because I’ve been operating really independently. I’m just surprised that he wants to do that because I realize it may even involve travel to Switzerland and stuff and I hadn’t known it was an interest he had.

John: Well you’re following the protocol of understanding, in terms of the path, that the idea of what enables the feminine to do her work is that there is a certain kind of thing that she tends to need that the masculine provides, and that she has more of a trouble finding for herself, that is more natural to the masculine, and that’s protectorate energy.

And so like the cat is the protector, and the kitten is white which represents masculine, and the kitten has this quality that enables something to feel wonderful and okay in the environment, but each time you try to get close to that, and establish that, and consolidate that, something happens.

In other words, the protectorate or the energy that makes everything copacetic seems to hover, it seems to be close at hand, but not quite realized. And then all of a sudden something comes up to create a quality of disengagement, or a separation. 

And even though it looks like it’s an important or necessary thing – studying something like Jungian psychology, or whatever that looks like, which adds to the greater understanding of life or something, that that however leaves you a little bit on the outside fringe in terms of what you need – bringing in the other dreams – what you need to be able to have a way of settling back and letting things just naturally unfold, or emerge, inside of you.

You need that space for that to happen. And the energetic of the third dream provides that space for that to happen so that something like that comes together. And it’s easy to draw the conclusion, in a type of possessiveness then, to where you try and think that you’re holding on to it, and scramble to hold onto it as if you’re losing it when you see certain variables going on, and you don’t actually really lose it. You just acquire a different sense of appreciation about it that in itself enhances it.

John: I keep dreaming that there is a dominant, inner expression that dictates the outer life. This is an influence that is familiar, deep within my natural frame of reference. However, the loudness of everything else – the superficial – drowns out this effect over the short run. 

So this influence silently dictates the overall way things unfold, even though it’s not readily apparent in the outer.

In one image, I see this inner expression represented as a skeletal frame that holds things together. The outer features are what I notice at first, and am apt to be swayed by – like the skin and the flesh on this frame – on a moment-by-moment basis. As a result, the controlling feature in life (the inner expression) takes a backseat to everything else in the outer environment. Or so it seems, even though in the long run the skeletal backbone to life is what ultimately wins out.

In other words, what I saw is this skeletal structure, and it comes all the way down to the ground. So there’s something about the structure that makes an energetic connection to everything that’s rooted in creation. Then the shell, the body, the flesh, and the skin on it is what people pay attention to, it’s what they see, so they’re not aware that there is an aliveness to the structure that actually dictates what is meant to be and how things are to unfold.  

Everyone is paying attention to what is more apparent or obvious, i.e., the denser, outer layer, which is just the wrapper, or the exterior of the skeletal structure. So people base their choices and actions according to appearances, because that’s the easiest to sense and to see.

In other words, the invisible skeletal structure carries the energetic or vibration of what’s meant to be, not the skin and the flesh and everything else that’s visible. But it’s the outer, visible layer that has a loudness that captures the senses, and draws everyone’s attention.

Of course, in the long run, what wins out, in terms of what is meant to be, is determined by the skeletal structure.

Isn’t that a strange image?

So in this dream I feel fortunate in knowing what is actually affecting what manifests in the outer. It’s a wonderful feeling of relief to know that there is inner guidance, determined or destined to come to the forefront of my being.

First of all, I sense this in a fairly general way, but then I realize that my attention is drawn more to the skeletal structure than it is to the outer layers. I do not readily grasp this.

I can feel it and I can know it, but I lose sight of this knowing when I’m caught up in some situation that requires my immediate attention. Even then, when I’m unable to hold onto an inner balance, I’m comforted in a subconscious way with knowing that there is the essence of what is meant to be, like it’s waiting for me to go there, to look there.

In the dream, because I’ve made the choice to have the inner framework to life dictate how I’m meant to live, even my mistakes and detours are simply guided and shaped into what is intended. I find that amazing.

In other words, as I fumble about it’s almost like something else is directing me because whatever I’m doing is being transformed somehow. It’s affected. Sometimes I suffer when this happens, but at other times my input is redirected and guided to bring out the intended inner effect.

I come to know and trust this inner expression, even though it’s not visible; for me it is just as real as what is visible. What is visible in the outer is there for appearances only. I’ve become able to see the deeper thread of things, beyond the noisy surface.

This cannot be said, however, for my coarser nature that is still dominated by the appearances of the outer world, fed only by the physical senses.

What I’m describing is a subtle awakening, of my consciousness, to that which lies deep within my nature. It gives me joy each time I’m able to break through the outer barriers and be touched by this inner essence, which waits patiently for me to attune myself to its existence at the core of my being.

John: Interesting. Here we have the second dream of the night (see The Dark Forces), exploring the same territory as the first dream (see Mission Possible). In the first dream it was a masculine aspect of you that was needed. That masculine aspect brought something through, which, in turn, triggered a knowing inside of you, because it is the nature of the feminine to carry everything complete and embodied within her, yet she needs it awakened from an unconscious state.

In this dream, you are in your feminine aspect – the viewpoint feels like you as you are in life. As the feminine, you’re proceeding in a natural way, guided by a knowing that you’re moving away from something that haunts you in some capacity. You are trying to reach the water, which represents your unconscious, and you are not deterred by whatever tries to block your way.

When you reach the water, you initially enter in a state that is neither unconscious nor fully conscious. We know this because there is the concern of you being smacked about by paddles and boats as you try to navigate this new horizon.

Ultimately, you rise above that aspect of the unconscious and you find yourself on a boat, which can take you on a journey to deeper inner territory and away from the limitations of yourself.

But all of a sudden you have a flashback to something in the past. It’s a memory of someone you knew and cared for, yet who, in the instance of the dream, represents an aspect of you. And you realize that this aspect of you still carries some dark energy, like being possessed or taken over. Through this habit or mannerism, you are infecting the people and things around you.

So you have made this wonderful journey out on the water, found yourself feeling free on the boat, and you’ve realized that you have developed a certain strength and confidence within you. You now feel the desire to go back and try to relate to this dense, lower-self force that is a vestige of your life when it was influenced by such lower-self nature.

When you go back to land, you realize that everything you see has been affected by this vibration of a lower nature. But you notice that as long as you don’t do anything to challenge it, or stir it up, you can move around safely in this arena of life.

However, you have a confusion, and the confusion stems from a sense of caring about things in terms of Creation. You can see, as you move in this “infected” environment, that you have been a part of it yourself. So your feeling is a desire to use the higher access you have gained – a recognition of your higher self –  in some way to try and create transformation or change.

Jeane: Or remembrance.

John: Or remembrance, yes, good word. I’m not sure that the dream quite tells you how this effort works out for you.

Jeane: You don’t expect it to work right. You just have to try.

John: True. So, the spiritual concept here is that you have to try to make this step back. You can’t open up all these levels inside yourself but not look back. Part of the journey is to bring what has been opened up, back down through the veils and to try and make a difference.

Jeane: And it’s partly because of the baby. Because there is hope for what has not yet been completely infected.

John: Ahhh. So, you find when you do this the first thing is to rescue the heart of something that’s most precious, that’s sitting in a state of innocence. Aha! Yes, that part is true.

Jeane: Then a martyr aspect comes through.

John: Yes, because you’re going to try to make a difference amongst people who don’t want to hear about this sort of thing. They’re caught up in what they’re caught up in, in their lower-self world-view, and yet you’re feeling that, because of your good graces…

Jeane: Well, not all the people, just the force that I was dealing with (represented by my friend).

John: You’re right. You’re looking at just the energy that’s the focal point of the problem. If you can change the source of the dark energy, everything else will change too?

Jeane: Yes.

John: And you’re going to be able to come up against this dark energy, something that in most instances you would avoid like the plague, because you can see how it’s affected everything else. You’re saying that you’ve reached a point where you’re compelled, and ready, to confront the source of this dark energy, rather than ignoring it or setting it aside. So that’s an important transition.
