Posts Tagged ‘letting go of identity’

It can be very difficult to make a shift in ourselves, or to find a new way to proceed when we are in a familiar, or recognizable, situation. Yet, there also can come a time when we can surprise ourselves and choose differently in the moment – opening up new possibilities, forever, whenever we reach those particular crossroads. It is a certain combination of inner desire and letting go that enables the energetic shift to be made. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: What I did in terms of my dream is I incorporated a bit of the situation that’s at hand. The whole thing has to do with letting go in order to recognize something anew. In other words, to let go of the constraints, the conceptions, the projections, the perceptions that hold something on in order to be able to recognize something anew. 

And so I did it a little differently in the meditation dream. A sequence of events occur in which the end result strikes me as being a surprise. The reason this happens, meaning a surprise, is because the usual resistance wasn’t accentuating the usual presence; in other words, the usual way that you take and relate to things. 

As a result, an unfoldment that ordinarily isn’t possible is able to come to pass, or to be viable, or come into fruition, and that’s able to be so because I’m not trying to hold on to something for some reason, which one usually does, as a kind of collective consciousness of themselves. This wouldn’t have happened if certain events that are kept in check, ordinarily, hadn’t been ignored, or let go of, or just allowed to run their course. 

What has happened is ordinarily kept in check by collective outer forces. In this case, an exception has occurred; to change that would be a problem at this time, now that the unfoldment has gotten to this point. 

As I am noticing this inside of myself I walk into a room, and, lo and behold, to my surprise, Dee’s dad is sitting there. He’s dressed up and wide awake; this doesn’t happen this early in the morning. But, to my surprise, I’m witnessing a new paradigm shift. 

So, what has happened is, what I am seeing as an unfoldment is an awakening in life designed as a shift away from the collective conditioning. This occurred because a freedom outside of the usual collective consciousness of control has let go so that this can happen. A lot can be learned, appreciated, and realized from a shift, which brightens things up in this new way, or new paradigm way. 

And the meaning is that I am at the threshold of a shift that is most enlightening. This is all portrayed in the outer; this is the scenario. It’s actually a fairly profound thing. And so, of course, to shake it out, I go back to, again, kind of like the breath. 

So, in my dream, I’m looking at being able to let go of having to carry myself in a vibratory identification way. To do so gets in the way of an inner connection in which there is no definition. To portray this in a loud way a person who I take to be a bit like a politician comes up and gives me a huge, almost suffocating, hug as a greeting. 

Ordinarily, if I see him a particular way, the hug doesn’t mean anything and we keep a certain kind of distance. But, all of a sudden, for some reason, something is more genuine. And so all differences are let go of between us, and thus the hug can be like that as a type of almost squeeze-the-life-out-of-you merging. 

If I insist within myself to see him as a politician, there wouldn’t be this genuineness of the hug. I wake up as I’m saying to him, “The one thing I really like about you…”

What I was about to say to him, before I woke up, had to do with his way of being able to greet and meet and merge with me without the politician in the way. I was going to refer to the intangible inner quality that he has that sets or let’s go of mannerisms and nuances in between. 

And so then as kind of an understanding that evolves out of this: to truly do that results in a coming together that literally takes the breath away – because that’s what the squeeze was like. 

And I saw this in a number of ways. I even saw this as a type of branding, where there’d be excruciating pain in relationship to something that wasn’t there. And by that I mean that there isn’t a mannerism, or aspect, on the breath that projects separation. 

Or, another way of saying it, when the vibration called, let’s say, the Gabriel energy to be merged with, in terms of its essence that was in Mohammed, the breath of familiarity to the mind senses was snuffed out. The result was a oneness to be read. Of course, it wasn’t understood to begin with. So that was the greater meaning and significance of that event that happened to Mohammed at 40 years old. That was a huge, huge step.

spinning-95We know from science fiction movies that when we reach warp speed, everything blurs into a oneness. As humans, we are in the physical realms, which is much slower than warp speed; that’s why everything appears separate. Still, energetically, things are always in a oneness. In our development we begin to operate at higher speeds, with higher energies. As this process occurs, we begin to be back inside the oneness. But this is not just a mental choice, it’s a process of dealing with higher energies. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember my last dream. In this dream, I seem to be working someplace where we work, and then we kind of go up a level, and go into a room, an open room, but it’s just up a few feet from the rest of the room that’s like a dining room. We all sit around a rectangular table.

When we sit around the table initially there seems to be a lot of tensions going on, and then one of the young women there reveals that she’s gay. And after a few minutes it’s like another young woman there, who I think is like the daughter of someone who owns this place, suddenly comes to the realization that she’s gay, too.

And, during all of this, it’s like some stuff got spilled on the table, and she’s wondering if this is us being upset with her, the reason things got spilled or mixed around, and I make a comment that, no, it’s about the tension from everybody trying to not reveal what was so, as opposed to the upset being about having what has been revealed. Although I realize that her father who’s not there, that maybe is one of the owners of the restaurants or something, might have trouble with the whole issue, particularly because she’s kind of taken time from when she should be working right now to stay at the table because she wants to sort this out with all of us sitting there.

And, at the same time, I’m realizing that whereas with the other girl she was very aware of how she was, with this one who’s her close friend this is more of just like revelation to her, too, and that we need to take a few minutes to kind of reassure her. At the same time this is causing some tension because she’s supposed to be back at work. That was the dream.

John: What you have to do in this dream is you have to take out the action of the appearance of the dream, and look at the transition, vibrationally, that is behind what is a sequence of outer appearances, or mannerisms.

And, when you do, you realize that what you’re perceiving, and what you’re seeing in front of you, is a far cry from the way that there is this inner state that is spinning you. And so it’s like, can you catch up with how this just spins you?

In other words, you can take and you can look at and have an epiphany over here of an insight, and then all of a sudden that leads to another epiphany over there as an insight, and you could see that this epiphany of an insight is different than the depths of the epiphany of the insight over here. And so you could easily have a sense of how this works as an importance, and as a flow, or you can suddenly drop even that spaciousness of pulling those two together. You can even drop that spaciousness and fall into the recognition that the whole thing is being spun, and that in the spinning of this over here, and that over there, you end up with something that just melts together.

I mean there’s an old image story of something that gets spun into butter or something; and I can’t remember how it goes, I just suddenly saw that, where something gets spun and all of a sudden it changes. And this is what this is like, only it’s on a vibrational level. And that you could take and notice, you have the recognition inside of yourself, that it’s more than this and that, and then all it requires then is another little letting go kind of subtle drop and you’re able to have those two areas, those two places, in which there is some question, or bifurcation, or nuance, or aspect in terms of reaching between this and that. It just spins, and the whole thing becomes one orientation.

Not an orientation over here that is kind of interesting, and then an orientation over there that’s more profound, and that you sort out this which is interesting from that which is profound, and come up with the difference as to why this is to that, and that is to that, as if you’re able to schematicize the unfoldment.

Instead, rather than trying to steer, or schematicize, or to control, or to have a piece of the way you hold onto the unfoldment – as if holding onto the unfoldment is where it’s at – you just suddenly allow yourself to be spun, and then when you’re spun it’s like you’re spun into something, and it’s no longer visible in the form that it had been, and goes into something else. It spins itself into nonexistence, or it spins itself into something that is like butter.

As it’s spun, all the features fall away, and it becomes something else that is just there – but no features anymore. That’s the vibration behind what you’re dreaming, that you suddenly catch or fall into in one fell swoop. If you catch up with it, if you feel it, if it comes across in a way that is still having to sort something out, or to recognize the distinction between this place and that place, then you’re not really quite letting go. You’re still trying to put the whole thing into your own personal cognition.

John: Last night, because of my fever, I didn’t think I was going to have any dreams. All my attention was on the fact that no matter how I bundled up I was cold and, as a consequence, I consumed myself with trying every sleeping position so I wouldn’t create any additional aches and pains.

It wasn’t until 1:00am that I had this image. I was trying to figure out how to carry the image back to what was going on before, but I was blocked by the fact that my attention was also on my fever, aches and pains.

So, in this glimpse, or image, I see a woman who shows up from time to time at the dream group. She is accepted as part of the group; it’s as if she lives in the area.

Somehow I come to know (no one else seems to know, they just accept her), that she doesn’t really live any place in particular. She just flows freely and with ease. 

If I didn’t know that information, nothing about her demeanor would cause me to think she didn’t live locally. The image of this woman, the quality that she carried, had a great freedom and elegance to it. She would just show up.

There was no way I could draw any conclusions, or quite put my finger on what it was about her. All I knew is that she seemed to be around at important meetings or events from time to time.

So this image is creating an energetic space, and freedom, to move about at will. It’s an expression of composure and elegance that feels natural wherever it is. It’s an image that shows that there is more meaning and freedom available to us when we are not limited by a need for definition. This woman defied definition.

We see this in waking life, and it has been a theme in our dreams since we went to Las Vegas, that when we find ourselves in situations that are completely out of the ordinary, completely different from what we are accustomed to, it stirs things up inside us. From an inner (dream) world perspective we are shown, and can experience, that if we’re able to just flow freely and with ease, we’re much more alive.

Flowing freely allows for more amazing images and states to open up, which also gives us a greater understanding of all that’s going on. Whether waking or dreaming, this free-flow state is almost impossible when we see ourselves in terms of how others might see us, whether friend or stranger. That ego-perspective isn’t good because it defines us – it limits us – and therefore shuts down the magic.

A dream like this causes me to wonder, how does one do this in relationship to the home community? In going to Las Vegas, we were far from our usual dream group (meetings) and unlikely to find similar ones there. Maybe this is a dream with a hint to show a state, or a value, that exists when we’re not in any place in particular?

The dreaming has been showing that there’s a much greater dimensionality to things when we’re able to be at peace with, and accepting of, all situations. Whenever we (humans) find ourselves in an uncomfortable predicament, we quickly begin to put limits on our senses and we adopt old patterns – we focus on the particulars and details, and lose the bigger picture.

When we do that – begin to limit things by defining them – it causes hurt to the heart, because it’s a disconnection from what really is. If we can keep things outside of the specific, or not view them so personally, we can actually have a greater perspective of what’s transpiring.

We’ve been dreaming that, and noticing that. It’s might seem like human nature to want to define everything, but that narrows our experience into the predictable, when our real safety, and joy, is in the spontaneous, or in the aliveness and uncomfortability of the unknown.
