Jeane: In my dreams last night, the impression I have is that I am trying to find something that will complete something else, and it is a struggle.

At one point I have a ticket, or something rectangular – it could even be money. Then I have something circular, and I’m looking for the piece that completes it. 

Somebody is constructing something. I’m annoyed with them. Part of my struggle has to do with shapes, and trying to complete the building of something.

There’s a young masculine energy that might be getting in the way, and that’s why I’m annoyed, but I can’t pull out the details. I was working pretty hard at it.

John: The compelling energetic of the dreaming last night focused on trying to cause something to come into cohesion, or balance.

What you are doing is looking at some limiting barrier, inside, and trying to bring that into alignment. This type of dynamic gets triggered when a person goes through sadness or hurt, or experiences an aching heart, compared with a happier feeling of soaring.

In other words, it’s the feeling of great relief or of a breakthrough. It’s reaching a state of peace, happiness, or joy, when earlier the feeling may have been a quality of sadness, or an aching heart. Between these two states there is the search for the missing pieces, which could manifest as to trying to find something, or to break through a barrier or veil, or to bridge a gap that lies in the way.

If you don’t experience the aching heart (to find the missing piece), or if you don’t have the contrast with something exhilarating and joyful, then you don’t have both polarities to work with. One polarity is an up energy and the other polarity is a down energy (the aching heart). If you don’t go in both directions, or take into account both degrees, then you won’t have a dream like you had last night where you are trying to resolve the difference, so that the two aspects can come together.

This is how veils, or barriers, are transcended in life. The depth and the height are brought together, and the inner and the outer are brought together. By reaching an inner depth, one can then reach the height.

It can almost get to the point where it’s hard to tell which is which. This is the process whereby life is nurtured. To learn to live in this zone – to be able to recognize inside oneself the wisdom of those two polarities – and to live in a zone that pulls them together into wholeness… that’s a human being who connects to everything in life.

That’s what it is all about. That’s what is required. It can only happen through the human – we are designed to process in this way. So this is exactly how we’re meant to live in the human body, rather than spending our time figuring out how to either project or protect our own self-identity.

It’s a state of freedom, really, where we can flow freely. After a certain point of maturity, we can stop letting ourselves get smashed in the depths – the aching heart, or despair, anger, or sadness – of whatever our predilection is, which is just a symptom of us being in a contracted state and shut down.

It’s good if we don’t have to do that. But if we do, then we tend also to the opposite extreme, which isn’t a whole lot different, because that sets us up for a fall. When we soar to these unbelievable heights in terms of a sense of wonderfulness, without the other state pulled together and brought into the in-between, then there’s an imbalance in either direction. Either polarity is a flipside of the same coin.

It’s not a whole lot different when everything is working out wonderfully and you’re riding the wave of that, compared to when everything is all compressed and you’re shut down and in contraction. Technically speaking, those two states are simply thresholds of extremes that are flip sides of each other – the polarities of existence.

The veils all fall away when you bring yourself to face a challenge or overcome what lies in between. When you feel how to do that – and the feeling of how to do that is the actual carrying forth of that energetic – you can penetrate the veils and come that much closer to the truth of things.

John: So, yesterday I was interested in the larger process at play, pointed out by our recent dreams (see An Elevated View). Today I want to get more into the specific images of the dream itself, so we can see how it works in detail (see Blast from the Past).

The basic idea we have been looking into is how we are able, from examining our dreams, to get personal guidance in our spiritual journey. Actually, we could say “life journey,” yet our dreams are always trying to steer our earthbound world-view toward a more spiritual connection with the universe.

We can get guidance from our dreams and it comes from the level of the soul, or the higher self –  however you want to say it. In my case, my dream showed me that in my actions in my outer life – the ways I have been thinking or behaving – I have been falling back into old patterns. Those old patterns represent a lower-self aspect of myself that I have tried to move on from.

In the dream, I am shown to be coming dangerously close to these lower-self habits, shown by the scenario of a class reunion, which is a perfect representation of one’s past. The reason I’m coming dangerously close is that some part of me believes I have grown enough on my spiritual path to handle it.

I think that I can go back to those past patterns and be okay. But the dream is saying: Don’t do it! The poisons I hold within me, as old memories or wounds, are still too present and have not yet been properly absorbed.

Even though in my outer life I have found deep inner connections, they would still be jeopardized if I went back to my old ways. The figure in the dream was an actual classmate that I saw at a recent reunion and made a heartfelt connection with. He saw and acknowledged the great changes in me.

And the relative who kept saying I would come back to my home town is a person who worked as a chief of police – he spent his life enforcing the laws of right and wrong. He saw himself as a comrade-in-arms with me, as battler of good and evil, even though his way of doing that was strictly in the physical world, not the spiritual world.

So I couldn’t ask for a better contrast to illustrate the two states of Creation, and the two states of life – the higher self and the lower self. With my classmate I’m seen as having reached a wonderful place, and I’m free in this place to follow my heart (don’t come back). With my relative, I’m seen as a person who has reached an inner depth and who can then return to the outer life and bring those realizations into life (into Creation).

My classmate knows I will get lost again if I respond to my need to fit in to a world I left behind. My relative knows I can make a difference in outer life – against good and evil – just like he has.

So a clear distinction has been shown to me in this dream, and it has a message that is intended to have a direct effect on my spiritual journey. It’s showing me that whenever I’m at a crossroads, I can make one of two choices. The dream’s advice is very specific: choose to stay in the heart, and stop choosing things that will only put me back into the lower-self, where I no longer belong, and where I will just get beat up again.

This is the kind of guidance that is available to us through our dreams. Usually, however, it isn’t so succinct. Most of the time the guidance will nudge us back and forth, slowly trying to turn us to the higher-self heart that, if we listen, will then continue to keep opening up little by little.

When I fell asleep last night I was wondering how to answer a question posed to me by a friend. The question was “How can our dreams help us on our spiritual journey?” What a wonderful dream example I was provided.

This is the third day in a row that I’ve taken a question into the dream world and gotten help. First it was “Why do dream work?” Then it was “What is the relevance of dream work in these current times?

The question for tomorrow is, “Is every person meant to awaken to a spiritual life?” I can’t wait to see how that one is answered! I guess all in good time might be an answer.

Jeane: Well, everything already is spiritual. It’s just a matter of how much one wakes up to it.

Jeane: I am approaching a room and I get a glimpse inside – it’s an all-white room and it feels like there is someone (perhaps the man I’m with, whom I think of as you) who is also energetically, and in appearance, a lot like the actor Sean Connery. I have the image that inside this room he is laying on a table, tied up. He may even have acupuncture needles or something stuck in him as well – the room is somewhat spare like a clinic.

The person in charge plans on taking me into the room – I can already see it in my mind. They’re going to take me into the room and make me lie down next to him. I see that I have a semi-circle of acupuncture needles across my chest, from one shoulder to the other. They also have something that goes across them at the top, or that might even connect them.

I see that the man who’s in charge also has a crossbow, and I have a feeling that he is threatening me in some way in order to get you (Connery) to talk. You have very thick, black electrical cords wrapped around your torso to keep you down. I have the sense that he will shoot you with the crossbow, or maybe shoot me, anyway. I don’t really know. But I have the sense it will be you. I see all this in my mind ahead of time. I see it as I am being taken into the room.

Then it feels like I am in the room lying down just as I had pictured, but for some reason the man with the crossbow has left the room. I get up and go to the door because it’s been left slightly open. I don’t try to go outside because I see there are cameras on the corners and the corridor, and I sense that there’s no point in going further because there would be guards down the hall.

I’m trying to figure out what to do when a woman comes into the room. I recognize her as someone who works for us and wants to help. As she reaches down I realize that what is binding you are these coils of really thick electrical cord and she is trying to unplug one extension cord from another cord. It’s very thick and hard to pull apart.

While she is struggling to pull them apart, I decide that I need to distract the cameras from what she’s doing. I get up hoping the cameras will follow me to the other side of the room. As I do that I realize the other side of the room has opened up into a fenced-in courtyard; instead of sterile white walls in a cell-like room, there is now a chain-link fence with a gate to the north. There’s even sky above us and outside the wire fence are some people walking by and observing. There’s also a female guard who is leading someone in through the door in the chain-link fence.

I have walked over to the fence where the people are looking in so that the camera will follow me. There are also other people walking around on the inside of the courtyard of the room, but they seem rather out of it. The ones outside seem almost like spectators who don’t really get what’s going on so they can’t be appealed to for help.

I’m kind of observing this and trying to create the distraction so that you can get free, and that’s all I remember right now.

Tomorrow, we will make John talk – about the deeper meaning behind this thriller-movie scene!
