We may feel like we are a lonely batch of humans on this blue planet in the middle of endless uninhabited realms. But it’s more useful to think of ourselves as participants in this universe. We are here to help. And that means finding better ways within ourselves to do things, and adding to the best of life and giving a boost to what struggles. Still, it all begins with wanting to help everything, which allows us to drop our ingrained desire to only help ourselves. Said another way, we are designed to work through things, on behalf of everything that is trying to happen.

John: So what is going on? What I just described is the Gambler archetype. The other three are Thief, Prostitute, and Drunk. Each human being has to go through these four archetypes which control them, personally speaking. Another word for them is the Four Doors. And, in me, the Gambler archetype is the loudest door.

And, in my meditation dream, I come directly in front of this door again and, to overcome this, I have to let go of personal predilections. Until I do I will keep spinning and spinning the pattern in an infinite number of energetic deviations, telling myself that I am on the verge of a breakthrough, so I must keep spinning it, and telling myself that the next time things will be different. That’s the meditation dream. Interesting?

So now, as I come to bed, what I have kind of dreamt in the meditation dream is something that seems like… it’s like an, oh my gosh, kind of thing. How does one ever overcome it? And it’s also looked at as if its whole force and effect is one that’s deleterious in terms of one’s well being. But in this dream I take and I do something that in the outer looks completely ridiculous, but its effect is interesting in a kind of way in which something is able to be changed – even if it’s momentarily.

So I come into a town, in other words, it’s like I’m a traveler and I come into a town in which there’s kind of a lottery being held at the local café. This occurs once a year at the café. So the steps in order for this to happen is that the café is given meat from some animal or something that is sacrificed or slaughtered, and then the meat is made available to those in need.

Because this meat hasn’t been inspected or anything, you know you can’t let the local establishment know what’s going on, but this café then will cook the meat for the people that come in to enjoy a special meal once a year that is free. And, as part of all of this, there is a charitable event auction and lottery tickets to support the cost and whatnot, in which there’s a big winner of all of this.

And it’s also done quietly because, again, this is probably something that’s illegal to do in terms of what you’re allowed to do in terms of the powers that be. So this occurs quietly without any fanfare that would cause the authorities to have to act to stop this.

I come into the café at the moment of the auction, or of the lottery; it’s not really an auction. And those who bought the various lottery tickets are up front waiting for the result. I’m sitting there and, for some reason, I’m in a space where I’m anticipating who the winner might be of those standing up there. And the winner turns out to be someone that no one expected, who had taken and mortgaged their house to get as many tickets as possible, and this person lucks out and wins the $1 million.

Meaning: The meditation dream talked about, and went into a depth about, the Gambler archetype, and this was presented from an outward perspective as a kind of unconsciousness, or ignorance, or being overwhelmed or under the control of that sort of thing. In this dream, the Gambler energy is given another spin.

In the dream a gambling sacrifice is done each year in order for a special feed to be put on for everyone in need that day. Symbolically speaking, for those in true need there is a special flow that makes itself known in manifestation. This inner flow is veiled from the forces and powers who are not in the congruence of such a graciousness.

Those who make the benefit available to mankind are willing to let go of everything they have to roll the dice, although such behavior is reckless in its outer appearance, and isn’t officially sanctioned, as a real act of gambling which the deeper meaningful effect comes from inner into outer with it, even though you wouldn’t think so, there can be a redemptive transformation.

There is a hidden quality about this in which this is not understandable to the outer, so to keep a good thing going it is best to be conducted silently so as to be within the veils of the outer amnesia.

This dream points out a virtue behind a Gambler archetype principle and, in doing so, indicates that there is always two sides to a scenario, the outer and also the hidden inner. In terms of what is going on it is important to not lose track of the inner, and the greater hidden value behind such an innerness, which is always seeking to make itself known in manifestation. In this dream this is where the Gambler archetype pays off: when it’s done in a non-personal way.

aur20Energy appears in many forms in dreams, but money is one form, and in this case it’s a lottery ticket. And we can see from the description that that is the important thing to follow or pay attention to. But the other people, young and old, are not able to focus on the energy and its importance, so there is a sense of struggle or frustration. But the energy itself is like a flow that every one should get in sync with. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I just remember some vignettes almost, or glimpses, of last night’s dreams. The strongest one I remember is that it feels like there’s a man, he almost feels like I might be related, I’m making up some kind of almost like a lottery ticket to sell him.

I’m almost hoping about which one he chooses, but then he chooses this one ticket that I think I put at least $20 in. But then he goes off, but he doesn’t open it because I remember coming across him later and I wondered if he’s opened it yet to see what he’s won, but he still hasn’t.

And then there’s some younger people in the family I’m trying to sell lottery tickets to in a sense, they’re like great nephews or something. They’re at a movie theater and they’re too distracted by some of the girls, and how they’re dressed, and I’m trying to get them to focus more on what they should be selecting.

And you come by at some point and you tell me that I’m going to be green, you know, and then it seems like I go back. I’m kind of concerned about one of the relatives and whether they’re actually going to open up their ticket at some point. And it feels like a lot of little scenes like that. I couldn’t really kind of glimpse a flow in the dream.

John: The sense is that you’re catching up with a mannerism upon which you’re able to unfold, or conduct, yourself in terms of bringing through, and holding onto, an importance in life.

First, the dream has three distinct parts. It has the part to which you’re trying to expand. Then it has the part to which you’re trying to bring something back, or through, that has a specific effect to it, meaning it’s something that’s visible in a dense, defined way. And you could consider it dense and defined, even, because it’s an expression, in other words, it’s a lottery ticket now that has something added to it, instead of it just being in general.

And then the third aspect of the dream, that all gets put together with this, is that the appearance is all in keeping with something that is natural as a presence in life. Those are the three parts, and the three parts get put together.

Usually you cannot lose something in life until you’ve made a journey, and that is the green. And the journey you have to make is the journey into the expanse of things. To it’s like a journey in Russian roulette, all the variables are out there. What are you going to do with them? Yeah, you’re tossed around a little this way, and you’re tossed around a little that way, and somehow or another you’ve got to take in everything that is affecting you, to reach a point where you have acquired a kind of general overallness of your nature.

But before you can get to the general overallness of your nature, as you take and you look at all of that it’s like one great big lottery, and it’s undefined. But then, at some particular point, that becomes defined, or starts to seal, and that there is this, that, or the other that’s involved with the expression, or mannerisms, that come in your direction, that you’re able to catch up with, that you’re able to bring down, and conduct, and handle.

In other words, those expressions, those mannerisms, they’re like lottery tickets, too, except you can work with how that definition and that mannerism is. And the reason why you can work with it is because you’re able to stay natural. You’re able to stay in the green. You’re not lost yourself in the whole mirage and malaise of things.

Now there’s a fourth step that you didn’t bring up, and the fourth step is that once you’re able to hold a particular presence, or quality, as you’re working in life, you then take that green or that light, you can take the things that have the $20 and that stuff that is a mannerism, that’s in the environment around you, the peculiarities and uniquenesses of things, you can then take and you can flow in a packaged way, in which the $20 and all of that is used, and in which the green of your presence is there. And then subordinate, or coordinate, or orchestrate yourself in keeping with what you have awoken around you. You can orchestrate and coordinate your life in relationship to their mannerism.

Now ordinarily you cannot do this if you’re just in the first step, the first step which is the step in which you’re becoming expansive in trying to take in the grasp from the top down of everything. But once you have brought it through, and have established a presence, and can take whatever is brought down and go back with the in-breath with it freely, into the whole, and be okay with that and have a sight somehow of the bliss of that, then you can take that and you can work with things in life.

This is an interesting thing. I don’t know what words to put on what that does, other than to say that it’s interesting why teachers have students, and a teacher has to hand off as much as he can to the student, and the student then can take and be the arms and the legs of things, in a more advanced way – in terms of consciousness.
