Posts Tagged ‘lion in a dream’

Male274If we want to talk about wholeness, or oneness, everything has to be included. In these dream images we see a young child being ignored, and acting unruly because of it. Why? Because on an inner level, this aspect of the dreamer cannot be ignored, it is part of the whole of her. In the next scene, that same energy has turned into a powerful lion that the dreamer is trying to befriend. Such a process can be understood as an inner healing, as we become inclusive of more and more of the whole of ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The only thing I remember from my first dream is that I’d gotten in this black car. I’d driven somewhere. I wanted to park and get out.

There was another man there, and then there was a little kid in the backseat. And I wanted the kid to stay in the car. And I know that the place I was at was at this village in Canada, that I dream about a lot, because I know the village really well.

But I’m having trouble because the kid’s trying to crawl out the window in the back or, you know, I’m having trouble communicating with the kid they need to stay with the car while I go do something with this guy. That’s all I really remember out of that first dream, and it was a black car.

John: The dream is talking about some part of yourself that’s repressed in a way that you don’t understand, or know what it’s all about, and that you have mannerisms, or notions, or belief systems, or some idea of what it is that you should be doing, or need to be doing, that you are using as a reason, that you’re engaging in, and that this is covering up or keeping that other expression from coming through, and coming out, that is a part of you. And it’s clamoring to come through, it’s clamoring to awaken, it’s clamoring to come out.

Jeane: In the next dream I seem to go into a room that’s like a small room and, near the back wall of the room, there’s like a toilet that you can sit on, that sometimes you just go sit on. And it’s right next to a bed that’s almost like a motel bed.

And on the bed is a big lion, great big lion, lying down or half sitting up like lions do. When I come in and out of this room I seem to go over and I sit down on the toilet, because that seems to be the only seat in the room, and it’s like I’m trying to work out my relationship with this lion.

It’s like I will have my hand even, you know, around its, you know, face or, at one point, I’ve done something where I feel like maybe it’s going to bite me, so I’ve been scratching its neck to kind of heal that a bit.


And that’s all I really remember about that dream. I would come in and out of the room, and I would be draping myself around the lion, and trying to work out a relationship there.

John: This dream is as if it’s progressing the prior dream, in which it’s taking and realizing the sense of inner power, or presence, or being that you need to catch up with has to do with understanding, or coming to grips with, or taking on the essence of this lion nature.

It’s very similar to the first dream except that, in this dream, you have progressed that dream in that you are looking to come to grips with what this lion quality is all about. In the first dream, instead of the lion quality being like a lion, the lion quality was revealed to be some sort of tender, young, repressed, innocent, and unknown quality of yourself – that you weren’t giving the proper time of day or attention to. And, instead, had other things that you felt had to be done, and this was causing you to go away from the vehicle of your beingness.

Okay, so that was like the opening salvo, and so that has a whole remiss, and ignorant, and innocent remiss built into it. It’s not like you realized that what you were doing was inappropriate, in terms of the wholeness, in terms of how the fact that you were leaving something off to one side behind and attempting to walk away from the vehicle of your beingness, for some reason or another, that you still rationalized.

You progressed that to where now you’re having to take into account, whatever the journeys and such that you’ve done, have caused you to catch up with the fact that you have to take into account this whole greater other dimension that you now see to have a power about it, a regality about it, a nobleness about it, that needs to be related to.

It’s interesting. You take a dream that’s kind of got a shattered motif to it, and then you come out of that to a deeper realization. Because it’s a bit of a shattered motif when you leave some part of yourself off to one side and go off on a tangent.

You tend to be slighting your own being, but you did it in kind of an ignorant way. I mean it was a black car and whatnot. You didn’t quite realize that you couldn’t be faulted for what you were doing. It was like a deviation that you went through that has led you to recognizing what it is that’s important to be connected to and merged to.

Dance-of-Life-2

When a particular human shows themselves to be gifted in a certain way, we tend to view that as the luck of the draw. But it’s closer to the truth to understand that we are all fully gifted, and that all things are available to us, because it’s all an aspect of our human design. What is different is the connections individuals have, some are more natural than others – they haven’t been veiled to a skill or ability. It is, however, our bad luck to have been born into a world that discourages this truth in us, making it a much more difficult journey to connect with our naturalness. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I had one main dream, and in this dream it feels like back in time because we’re all living in these caves. They don’t feel primitive though. They’re like huge rocks, and you feel like there’s probably desert nearby.


And I must have come more to the caves and there’s a man that reminds me a little of you but he kind of watches. I go into an area of the cave, it’s like a series of caves. They’re very huge, you know, and it’s like I go into an area of cave around some boulders which is where he was, and he has this big lion that walks near him which scares people.

But I go over there because I’m kind of attracted to that because I have the sense the lion will look after me in a way, so whenever I’m in the cave I’m always going over to where the lion is, or wondering where the lion is, or sleeping over near there where the lion is – because I have the sense the lion watches… you know, I’m safe when the lion’s around. And it was just kind of a neat feeling.

John: What the lion typified, and what the lion represented, was a vibration of oneness. In other words, the cave setting is a setting that stripped out the complexity of things, because outside of the cave there was nothing but a kind of desert, or an expanse of nothing.

And in the cave you had a masculine, and you had a feminine, but the masculine and feminine have one thing in common. They both appreciated or worked with the lion and, in that sense, that lion came together to symbolize and represent a singularity or a oneness.

That’s how you imaged it as an image of which there is a lot of deeper meaning behind it because in the oneness, in the coming together, that whole aspect of the lion was just a presence, just a simplistic thing. There was nothing to do. I suppose you could have the hunter gatherer mentality, but the lion embodied it all as a vibration.

And so the beginning and the end were captured in the essence of this lion. And so, as a consequence, the soul of it all was best represented in this image as the lion. And so the feminine trait and the masculine trait all came together in this oneness as a lion.

And so if the full meaning of something like this little simple dream were to be probed out and stated directly, it would not make any sense to what you see functioning currently. In other words, the lion as a completeness and as a wholeness, as an innerness, in a place in which if there’s an outerness it’s an emptiness because this does it, it represents, it has reached a wholeness that, without there being a wholeness, you would still have the issue of beginning and end, in other words what to do? It’s in between.

But as a wholeness there is no drama, there is no play, it all comes together, and the epitome of that is the lion. It all comes together. You’re caught up with all of the power or all of whatever it is that brings it all together, which if you were to have broken a feminine trait off of that you would say that it is coming into its full over sweeping of things in life, emanation in life. And if you were to talk about the masculine as if you could break that away from the lion, you would be talking about it carrying the seed of all there is in its being.

So the two come together as one, so that is why the journey, as it’s described in terms of the process of going to a consciousness is really an alone to alone, which is the same thing as saying that, in the end, you find out that the beginning and the end are one and the same.

So that means that the journey is an illusion that you take. So what prompts this illusion? Well, it is because somehow or another you’re not outside of the chains of density, or magnetism, that creates and facilitates the senses and the mind’s way of trying to grasp things, all of this leading then to a thread of trying to go between two points, beginning and end, or to try to reconcile masculine and feminine, or to try to reconcile expanse and contraction, or to try to reconcile inner and outer, when ultimately there is nothing going on, when ultimately it all comes together as a completeness and as a wholeness from the very, very beginning.

It births that way, it can birth that way, and therefore what it serves or does is free of any veils. If it’s fully birthed without the veils, without the dance, without the variances, without the karmic overtone and overload that comes in that has to do with bloodlines and the way things are thrown around in terms of how the outer is, if it’s free of that, then it’s automatically in a oneness. And so then it would be the epitome of the idea without having to be clothed in any fashion right from the get go, which might have been, might have been, the essence of the Garden of Eden before the deviations started playing out that created the veil.

Everything would have been just in its full naturalness, a naturalness that was provided for at every turn as a wholeness; the beginning and the end would be there. There would be no birthing, there would be no deathing, birthing and service in a sense are kind of the flip sides of the same coin in that there is an action, and then a reaction, as a consequence of the two that play in between the beginning and the end.

When the end is towards doing something, that you would call a service, that’s marching towards an end to reach a completion. And the birthing is a beginning, you take both of those out and you have the oneness in which nothing exists, nothing is going on.

So what you did in your dream is you visualized the lion as the representative of that which cannot be talked about because we don’t perceive things like that. We perceive things as some sort of awakening to a consciousness, instead of realizing that it is all here. But I guess you would have to say that it has to awaken because we have gotten to the point where we are not being who we are, and haven’t been who we are, and there’s no way for us to be who we are as a divine entity coming into life because things were skewered, skewered in terms of bloodline synapses that have issues that have to be gone through, skewered by the outer senses that depict something that throws a doubt on what is really real.

There are some children for example that actually see their guiding angels or whatever it is, that quality of themselves, that is not affected by things, that is kind of protected. But the density of things says that that’s all malarky, and when the child gets beyond a certain age, if it was a type of child that had an awareness of something like that, then it all disappears, it all goes away.

Then you have a certain Indigo children that can do certain things as if somehow or another the illusion didn’t quite get fully pulled through. You know like you’ve got the boy, the Indigo child, that grew up south of Livingston that used to wander the hills and imagine this and imagine that by feeling something over and above and beyond, and whatever he depicted or wrote down in his imagination then was full of symbolism because he was really more attuned to what was real, and so his stories of the dragons and stuff like that was full of meaning.

You have people who can take and let’s say do a speed reading course with Evelyn Woods and suddenly realize that they go ten times faster, which makes no sense to anybody else, because they’re reading to remember because they know everything already. In other words, there isn’t this journey that they have to take. The beginning and the end of all that there is, in every regard, is something is quickened in them.

You’ve got people who break the gravity of time and space and can go back and can tell you, if you give them a date, what day of the week it is. That’s not possible. It can do mathematical things that defy common sense, or can repeat sequence of numbers in such an extreme, or do mathematics to such a degree, that there’s no way that you could have the limitations of the mind working off of senses at play.

In other words, the middle of things has somehow or another, in that regard, is not sitting there as a veil. You have people who can take and can sense through matter, can reach through matter. This is like a big, big subject in terms of a way of being that is meant to be, that is a destiny and potentiality for the human race. And if a oneness is truly given into mankind, this is where we’re going, is to a place in which the fullness is just there.

And so this idea of having to do anything, or to have to be in any particular way, or to have to overcome something, is all a song and a dance that doesn’t have to be there when one is able to fully be in what and how they are naturally.

Jeane: In this dream I’m on an island, but this island is a large prison. I don’t have the sense that there are fences or bars to keep me in, but because it’s isolated there’s also no sense of freedom.

However, I do know I’m going to be given a pass by the warden to go somewhere. This pass means that I can leave briefly or have a little more freedom for a while. One of the limitations with this pass, though, is that I know there’s a lion wandering around on the property. At some point I’m going to have to sit down and have an interaction with this lion. I don’t seem to be too afraid of the lion; it’s just a side note to what’s going on.

Meanwhile, before I get my pass and go out to interact with the lion, I’m observing other prisoners and I’m wondering how they’re going to handle things. One of the men seems more restricted than I am.

Then I go inside a building and I run into old friends that lead personal growth seminars. (This encounter also has the feeling of a side dream within the larger dream.) These friends are in town promoting some new people that they’re very excited about who are giving a seminar. 

One of the men is Native American and I’m observing his program material as I interact with my friends. Next I go into some of the individual groups and observe what’s going on and looking at the people that are attending. I’m seeing how everyone is interacting.

Afterwards I’m talking with one of the seminar leaders and someone comes in and sets down an elaborately decorated cloth and then lays down on it. I see that the woman seminar leader has sewn a design into the cloth that has the shape of an open cup or glass – it has three sides and is open at the top and very straight. It looks like she has sewn it on a machine. 

Another man says that this design represents what’s happening, or what is supposed to be done for the seminar. He’s surprised at how simple it looks. I comment that the seminar leader always does it that way and that it will actually work well for what it represents.

Then I’m talking to another prisoner, who’s also supposed to get out on a pass. In the back of my mind I’m still wondering whether I’m going to have this encounter with the lion.

John: First of all, symbolically, the prison that you’re in is considered the lower-self nature of your being. There’s a process going on in you in terms of reconciling the lower self with the higher self. So we see you in the prison (lower self) and then we see you at the personal growth seminars (higher self).

A Native American man (ancient tradition) and a woman are leading the seminars. The woman has designed and sewn a cloth showing the feminine symbol of the cup. This cup represents the openness and vacancy that is to be filled spiritually. The cloth also speaks of you quilting or piecing the parts of yourself together so that you are able to leave the prison of your lower self.

It’s an interesting dream in that it is describing how you have one foot back in the lower self of your nature – your ego-based aspect – where you’re having to sort things out. That sorting process is known as “Traveling Toward God.”

If you were in your lower-self nature when confronting the lion – meaning still in the prison – you would be very fearful because the energetic power that the lion represents would be way, way too much to handle. But as you progress and develop and come to know more of your higher self, you gain the sense of being able to break away from this prison. Going outside the prison of your lower self is where the journey of “Traveling In God” begins, or at least it’s a distinct shift in terms of how you work on yourself.

Tomorrow we can delve a litter further into the discussion that this process represents.
