bookgreehWhat turns a dream image from one with the excitement at learning something new, to a chase dream on the wrong side of town? Well, in many cases, as in this one, it’s a matter of missed connections. In the image, it’s the inability to find a classroom. But the energy in the subconscious that creates such an image is describing a glitch in a deeper process within the dreamer. The term used here is “grounding,” which is describing a person’s ability to harness a new energy and make use of it, rather than being thrown about or overwhelmed by it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my first dream last night, it’s like I’ve gone one evening to a talk that a man who’s like an anthropologist and a shaman is giving. And I kind of enjoy that class or talk, and so I know he’s going to be giving a class at the university and I think maybe I’ll go over and take that class. Plus he mentions the name of a man named something like Ackerman who also teaches a really excellent class, so I think, well, maybe I’ll go over and sign up for two, or three, or four classes at the university this quarter.

So I go over on registration day to the university. It’s actually done at night. And the way I’ve got it organized is you go into a building, and all these other people have been coming in to the building to register, and then you’re supposed to take an elevator up to the floor where the person with the class is, and you can maybe sit in for a little while, see what you think of him, and then sign up for the class or not.

Well, this sounds great, except when I get there they don’t really have a system that makes it easy to figure out what floor someone’s speaking on, and I pick up a brochure on the table but it’s not organized in any kind of logical manner where you could just go alphabetically to somebody’s name. You might have to find the right folder on the table that maybe has something alphabetical, and I’m not even sure of that. And the thought that you have to get off on each floor and figure out what somebody is teaching doesn’t make any sense to me because it’s so crowded you can barely catch an elevator to go up. So you should know where you’re going, and there should be a system to figure it out easily, but there’s not.

Some people seem to know where they’re going. I don’t know if they had some way of looking it up ahead of time, or not. You’re there for a few minutes and you’d maybe figured out how to go up to the floor where the person is speaking that I heard last night, but I already went there last night so you go on up or something. But the class I really want to register for and maybe a few others I kind of go and wander toward the administrative building. I go here and there trying to figure out how you find out where someone is, so you can go there, and I can’t seem to get any straight answers, and it’s just crowded.

And before long it is dark and I decide I need to go home, and I’ve gotten totally frustrated and expressed some frustration, but everybody else is at the university. They’re kind of like kids or something. They don’t really care.

So then when I leave it’s awfully dark out. Now I start to go across campus to figure out my way home, and suddenly I’m in an area where it’s almost like railroad tracks and scaffolding that goes way up, and you have to climb, and there’s somebody tracing me. You feel like they’re white slavers or something. You don’t know what they are, but they’re kind of tracking me, or chasing me.

And I manage to climb around the scaffolding and the railroad trains and get away from them, but then when I go to the other side to go another direction, because now I think I’m ahead, you know, away from them. I’m not sure they saw where I went. My only two choices seem to be to climb up some rickety wooden buildings where some Chinese are that are kind of beckoning to me, and that looks pretty rickety, or I have to cut over the other direction and I’m not as sure what’s there, but it looks like something that would be a little easier to traverse.

John: Well, the general motif of the dream is that you are recognizing that you have the opportunity to catch up with an ever increasing awareness that is alive in your environment. And then you go ahead and you propose a way that I had never thought of, and the more I look at it the more I realize this is true for the feminine. It isn’t true for the masculine, but it’s true for the feminine.

In other words, what’s true for the masculine is the masculine has to figure out how it gains an access to a grounding so that it can create a viability, an awareness, a linkage, a connection of an inner into outer, a pulling together of the thoughts in relationship to that which is reflected as manifestation. It can do that instead of being off the ground and disjointed.

That’s kind of like the challenge for the masculine, but what you’re saying is that the feminine to increase her overall awareness, to have an understanding of this and an understanding of that, has to be able to know all the levels. And what you’re describing as the levels is the various places in which the whole schematic of energy, meaning synaptic energy that is etheric, such as the spirit energy that normally is in the expanse of it all, that is of a masculine orientation, that’s off the ground, you have to be able to know how to ground all of that, to handle all of that, and it can vary from place to place, from level to level, from degree to degree.

You have to be able to recognize how to take and make right, no matter what the idea is, and of course the crazier the ideas the more ungrounded they’re going to be, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a whole lot of potentiality to that. In fact, your dream is indicating that there is so much to be learned, so much to be recognized, realized, made whole on all of the different levels, being able to catch up and ground all of that.

And then the dream proceeds to go on and indicate that, for some particular reason, even though that hounded you and hounded you and hounded you earlier that this is what you need to be doing, and you couldn’t seem to figure out how to do it. Then the dream seemed to do a step backwards, in which you’d lost the chemistry of the combination of how things work in terms of the role of the feminine to be able to pull things down and through, and, in that regard, awaken something in terms of herself as an aliveness.

It’s almost as if you had forgotten how that worked and you were then instead under stress: you didn’t know where you were at in relationship to one side or the other. There were the railroad tracks and you seemed to be something that was being hunted, and haunted, as opposed to something that reached up, and aspired, and recognized the potentiality of the whole equation of life.

That was kind of a profound dream wasn’t it? The interesting thing of the dream, of course, was the idea that your well being is based upon being able to access, by way of grounding it, to be able to go up to that which is off the ground, to find that which is off the ground, and ground that into a knowingness.

7afIn this dream we have the feminine trying to make a connection to the masculine – on an inner level. And we know that the man is there, somewhere, but never seen or spoken with. And, in fact, the man isn’t even the main character’s significant other, but is married to someone else. This shows the distance of the gap that must be bridged to make the energies work together, because the work that these energies do can only be fulfilled by mutual support. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the dream that I have, it’s like I’m kind of… I must have been hiking somewhere, but more across like fields. And I see this woman kind of working in one of the fields, and I realize I’ve gotten kind of dirty, and I decide to walk back to her house, which I’d passed, and clean up.

I don’t even really know her, but I know she’s out working in the field. Her husband’s somewhere around in the house, but I don’t see him. I go and I kind of sneak into the house and go in and I see this one laundry room, and it’s an interesting laundry room because if you put your clothes in they go through two or three machines, or four machines, in a row and then they come out okay.

I decide I’ll just take off my clothes, because I’ve gotten all muddy, and just wash my clothes there. Well, I get my clothes in the laundry or something and then I hear someone come, it feels like a daughter or someone that she has, and it feels like I kind of try to hide a bit, or I end up exchanging words with them, or they don’t seem to mind that I’m using the laundry. I’ve grabbed a towel or something I’m covering myself with.

I’m just trying to stay hidden from the woman and her husband, I remember that. But then I have this problem because I have to wait until the clothes are done, so I have some clothes to put on, or I even go to a closet and pull some clothes out. I don’t recall that part really well.

John: It’s a process dream. It’s bringing in a component. It has probably a deeper meaning that I’m not seeing, but the component that it’s addressing is that the feminine, which is in the outer, and has its way with the way things are in the outer, is you actually are finding yourself working and trying to be oriented in that, but that you can become contaminated or overly affected.

And so when you then go into a place where there is the house, or a place of security, or whatever it is, you haven’t yet established or sorted out where this stands in relationship to the masculine. And so the process aspect of it that’s missing is that the feminine has to give something to the masculine.

The feminine is in an overall that is complete and whole, and doing whatever the work needs to be done in the overall, in whatever capacity that needs to be. However, it can get contaminated or affected by things, and the gap that exists is that there is no recognition between the masculine and the feminine.

In other words, the role, the letting go, the way of working with things that the feminine can do in the outer, the visual, or understanding, or coming together of that hasn’t yet happened between the masculine and the feminine and, as a consequence, there is no appreciation. There is a lack of proper appreciation of the feminine quality.

And so when the feminine quality isn’t properly appreciated, isn’t properly recognized, isn’t seen for how it is and what it’s doing – and it needs to be seen, it needs to be recognized, – it tends to, over of a course of time, become mired down or dirty. It needs the flow and connection of the masculine energy.

In other words, it’s not enough for the feminine energy to be able to function in the outdoor of things, in the matter of things, in manifestation. It’s not enough for it to… it cannot be complete and whole in terms of what it does in manifestation if it doesn’t have the masculine aspect of clarity that kind of makes and helps keeping everything sparkly and clean – but doesn’t have that involved or invoked as well, or connected to that.

So, in this dream you introduce the recognition that the feminine does things and has its ways in manifestation. You also point out, though, that it can’t go very far in and of itself without getting dirty, and that there is like an amnesia, or hiddenness, or a distance that exists, an estrangement that exists, between how it is that it can be in its completeness in manifestation, and how it is that the quality of the masculine that is able to touch the spirit energy manifestation or matter and cause something to come alive, it needs that, it needs that linkage or otherwise you have this other.

So what you’re kind of doing in this dream is you’re having a dream like this in order to kind of see what is missing. The other aspect of what you’re doing in this dream is you’re doing what you are doing in matter, and in the outer – in the field, so to speak – in order to take and cause something… to establish, or create a crop, or essentially to be able to give something more to the whole; but it’s not readily appreciated.

You carry this gap far enough, and you’re talking about the problems and the ills that exist all over the world, then. You’re not addressing the problem, you are just portraying what it currently looks like, how so much goes for naught.

aus2In the prior dream (see A Tilt in the Process), Jeane was struggling with being able to take on an energy that was haywire, as seen in the image of people shooting shotguns that might hit her house – and Jeane tries to stabilize the situation. Here, in her next dream, the struggle still exists, yet the imagery has shifted: the house is overrun with animals. Again she is trying to bring order to the chaos. But it shows how the ongoing process of our dreams helps us sort things out on a deeper level, and our unconscious will keep trying until we get it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The next dream I just remember flashes of. It’s like I’ve gone to stay somewhere in a building, some low buildings, with female members of my family – like my grandmother comes, I think my mother’s in the background, I forget who else.

But what seems to happen is every time I… the place really needs to be cleaned up, and there are animals that have moved in, so it’s like every time I open a door, or go into an area, I talk with them about we’re going to have to clean it up. But meanwhile we just have to stay there the night, but I’ll open up a door and there’ll be some animals there, and it might be turtles, or another time I open up a door and a dog has just had puppies on the front stoop, and then there’s a chicken with chicks.

It’s just like wherever I look there’s something going on with the animals having taken over a bit, that we’re going to have to straighten out. Then I think I had a flash of somebody going by in a parade, but again it feels like some animal was involved.

John: What you’re showing is that these lower-self traits of one’s nature… First of all you have to back it up from the standpoint that the feminine is at home in manifestation, in other words, Mother Earth and all of that is her domain.

And so that is why in dreaming women tend to dream more about animals than guys do. Guys have dreams that are more involved with chase scenes and episodes of missing out on this, that, or the other. But the feminine dreams more in terms of the animal kingdom because she more closely identifies with all of those various vibrations. She more naturally is closer to that.

And so what you’re dreaming about is, in terms of you being the zookeeper of all of those animal traits and qualities and characteristics, you’re finding that things are all over the place. It’s not running straight according to how it can be if you are holding your place in the overall, properly.

In other words, the way this corresponds to the first dream is that the animal energies are generally associated with aspects of lower-self energy. I mean, they are higher-self, too, but the imbalance of such a thing is a lower-self trait. And so in order for the higher-self qualities of those energetics to be taken in, to be appreciated by the crown of creation, a human being, they have to be, as you would say, straightened up, or in a natural unfoldment.

But what you have here is you have it all in a state of disarray, from animal to animal to animal to animal, and so when it’s like that, you can’t do anything then in terms of trying to give something or be a particular way that facilitates the imbalance of the masculine – because you don’t have your natural inclination to the characteristics and the traits that are all very, very subtle that are part of the genetic makeup of all that there is. You’ve got all of that in terms of on a deeper level your responsibility towards all of that; you have it in a bit of a state of disarray.

And so this adds information to the first dream. The information that it adds is that when you take and find yourself seeing that… and this is very deep and subtle this vibration you’re carrying there, but it’s kind of like in a denser way the way it comes across is the feminine feels or sees herself to be taken advantage of or abused, the scorn effect that can come from that can wreak havoc over everything in the surrounding environment.

And in the case of scorn and that coming across it’s usually directed at the masculine in some fashion. There’s some flash-out that happens towards the masculine. It’s like divorces and stuff are very strange and you can often see the guy look like he has gone nine-tenths insane when he had been described as a pretty nice guy up to a particular point, and then all of a sudden something… he’s seen as a bit haywire or a bit off.

It’s almost like spells are easy to cast in that regard when something is towards something that isn’t quite right, or is ungrounded. And that starts, that whole process unfolds, and behind that whole process is the fact that the feminine nature then lets go of a kind of orientation and responsibility that it has towards its understanding of the subtler energies. The subtler energies that are largely invisible even inside of her, but she still has a linkage and connection to it. And so instead of that unfolding more naturally, it tends to be in a state of disarray.

So the degree to which she reacts about something in terms of it not going in accordance with some sort of latent predilection, is the degree to which she destroys her own beastiality of her own nature, a type of beastiality though that she is in conformity with, as opposed to in a state where it is all in disarray. She needs the conformity, the raw energy of the beast energy world. She pulls the subtle vibrations from within that, that each characteristic represents, and is able to make that alive and knowable to life itself, to the masculine.

It’s part of bringing the inner into the outer. And so if she has an attitude about something, then that whole part is all in the state of confusion. So how is it possible for any kind of inner coming into outer alignment to take place? Isn’t that an interesting dream?
