Posts Tagged ‘masculine and feminine natures in a dream’

energy_rDepending on the moment, we can have different natures in us. Sometimes we are careful and rational and weigh all the possibilities. Other times we can be impetuous and indulgent and find ourselves in a situation we didn’t want to be in. It can be this way energetically as well, where we can connect to energies that we really aren’t ready to process. One way to alleviate that issue is to be connected through the heart, which is a deeper alignment that will help us flow with the energetic shifts.

Jeane: Well, in my first dream, I’m a man. I seem a little focused on I have to get to the airport to catch a plane at some point, and there’s another man that’s kind of following me around. And I get the idea that he’s trying to set me up in some way, but I don’t quite figure it out until I’m sitting for a minute in a room and he comes in.

It’s almost like he makes advances to me. Then I realize, I kind of look at him, and I go over and I open up the door and first there’s a little boy there, and then there’s a sheriff, and I realize that if I’d responded to his advances it all would have been a setup to get arrested.

So I leave the room because I’ve obviously kind of avoided that trap, or the other traps I felt he was trying to set for me in the dream. Before going to the airport I see him, like he’s in a cab, and this time I go over to him as though I’m setting him up, which kind of terrifies him and he drives off or something.

So it’s almost like I’ve found out you can turn the tables if people are doing that to you, or something like that. That’s the first part of the dream.

John: So what you’re doing is you’re trying to look at what it’s like to have an orientation in terms of an inner coming into the outer. That’s kind of a motif of the masculine. It’s always an out-breath coming down trying to touch something in creation.

A motif of the feminine is something that is complete, in and of itself, having to open up. So you’re starting off with this orientation of something coming down, or of a masculine orientation, and you’re realizing that the possibilities, the expanse of something like that, is outside of the parameters of what you can cope with.

That’s why if you respond to something that’s pitched at you, and the masculine is always like pitching something, bringing something through, pitching something, you respond to what is pitched at you, you find that you end up in one setup after another setup.

And what you’re doing is there are actually two octaves: there’s the inner, and the outer; there’s the masculine, and the feminine. But you’re looking at the expansive component, and the masculine, in its attempt to understand everything, is always thinking that it’s approaching something in an expansive component way, but it doesn’t have the faculties to really be able to take on the expanse, not in terms of its physical faculties.

And you come to realize that it has to be done in some other way, and you see yourself able to not fall for the setup and to conduct yourself in a whole other way, and that in doing so, this blows the cover off of any kind of qualm or mannerism that exists as a focus and attention that is geared to such an orientation.

What you’ve actually done is you’ve touched the heart, and when you touch the heart it puts you into the overallness to such a degree that the typical way of perceiving things, in terms of the faculties that are at your disposal, that gets overrun because that’s so limited. Now you don’t know that you’re touching the heart because you’re not really feeling the depth of that exuding. You’re not portraying that you’re experiencing the depth of that exuding in your being, yet at the same time something deeper inside of you knows that this is how to be when you’re coping in a expansive way.

But the only part of yourself that can be expansive, that could stretch out, that can try to look at things, that could try to figure things out, is the part of you that orients through the breath/heart. They work in cohesion, and that when you have the heart you have the breath, generally, naturally there, because the breath just automatically comes to whatever it is. It comes to an orientation that is coming out of the heart as the heart opens up.

Of course when you have the mind there, the breath does the same thing. It’s shallower and is in accordance with the linearity of a limited frame of reference.

So your dream is looking at it from one perspective. I attempt to dream both perspectives. You’re going at it one step at a time. You’re dreaming one side of it. You’re dreaming how the enlivenment, or perceived enlivenment, of the expansive masculine is nothing but a setup.

ffe95Here is another good example of the many lives that exist within us, because when our main character inherits a gift, the other (parts of her) are trying to talk her out of keeping it. As things awaken in us, part of what needs to be settled within is that anything new is pushing out time or space for something already there. And that life in us won’t always cede territory without a struggle. Sometimes it requires consciously having a conversation with our different inner lives, negotiating a peace agreement among them. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well the only memory I have of my dream last night is I’m trying to decide what to do. It feels like I’ve heard from some Canadian relatives, and there was an aunt or some relative that I’m not sure I’ve met, that had died, and she’d broken a trust.

When this aunt died, she broke a trust and suddenly left something to me and somebody else, and the relatives feel like she was senile and shouldn’t have broken the trust and just want us to write off whichever she has left us.

Initially, I’m going to do that, and then it’s like I stop and I start thinking because I’ve got this paper in front of me that has her name on it and the name of the other person she’s left something to, or who has a signature on the page. I think it’s because she’s left something to him. He’s a state patrolman of some kind.

And I start thinking back, and then I have this vague remembrance of a tea with elderly relatives in Canada and I think that maybe I’d met her at that tea, or she’d seen me at that time, and I think well, what if because of something that she saw at that tea there was something specific she did want to leave me? In which case I shouldn’t just sign away what she left me, whatever it is.

So I’m kind of looking at this blank piece of paper with the two names on it and whatever form it is, trying to remember back, seeing if that is who she is, because I kind of feel like if she’d never met me, and the relatives are right, and maybe there’s just something wrong and I should just sign it away. But if she had met me and there was something she meant to leave me, then I shouldn’t sign it away. So I’m kind of deliberating, looking at this piece of paper because I’m starting to remember having met her at this tea. I think that was her, and I’m trying to figure it out.

John: That’s a useful bit of information that again I wouldn’t have known without your dream. I dreamt the opposite. What you dreamt is that you’re bestowed, or embodied, with gifts in terms of the imbedded quality nature of your being. In other words, however it is that you are naturally connected with the spirit energy that’s already intertwined in your being. You have a kind of innate entitlement that’s built into your makeup.

And maybe that’s why that it’s said that the feminine is complete, because it carries within its chakras all that is essential for being able to touch life in manifestation. And that the masculine is incomplete in that it is off the ground, and needs to have something given to it by the feminine in order for it to become balanced.

Because in your dream you are indicating that this naturally comes to you, it awakens, the awareness comes out of the blue in a way, unexpectedly. I mean, not even necessarily earned. It’s already endowed and, as a result, it can be a surprise. It just needs to have certain veils of distraction and abstraction to drop away, or moods, or mannerisms that get in the way, to subside and this other then awakens, comes out, and takes over.

The idea that you have to earn it or be entitled to it based upon something that you could put your finger on is not at all true. There’s nothing you can do to ingratiate yourself to this quality. It is just naturally there when it’s meant to be there.

For me, because I’m off the ground in the out-breath, and you’re just naturally part of creation and manifestation in a whole way, can you guess how this would have to be as the exact opposite, because that’s what I dream and the whole effect is the exact opposite.

You don’t even have to know anybody or anything, what is meant to be there as an entitlement. When the spatiality is right it just naturally opens up and anyone making it a step removed from the process, is not going to necessarily make sense to them, especially if they are looking at it in a masculine way of having to see this as something that is earned. And you’re not doing anything to earn it. You don’t have to do anything to earn it, and you don’t have to beat yourself up to think that you do have to do anything to earn it.

The masculine always has to go through its thoughts and its processes, but the feminine carries the natural orientation of a knowingness that is just naturally there – if she can just catch up with it. Her problem is that she has repressed it. She has been wounded or something and repressed it, and cannot access it readily anymore.

And the masculine’s problem is more along the lines that he’s abused and misused the energy and, therefore, has purposely alienated himself from the wholeness. And so how it is he comes to recognize the wholeness that is all around him again, like the feminine can naturally? So how does the opposite work? Right? And it took three dreams to pull it all the way through.

event0Though we don’t get to hear the end of the story in this dream, it still can show us how the different elements are interacting. Because we are all the characters in our dreams, they each represent some aspect of our inner lives. Here, the main character is trying to smooth out a relationship that threatens to disrupt the established flow of the whole. And if we think that we try in our lives to move toward certain aspirations, we know there is always a renegade aspect that needs to be assuaged. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I only remember a little bit of one other dream. I had about four dreams, but it felt like each time I woke up and went back to sleep I lost the dream. The other dream I remember part of, it’s like I’ve run into a male relative, an older male relative, and he’s going to be leaving his wife for the maid.

And I go over to the house and it’s like I look at the maid and I realize that maybe he’s going to leave his wife for her, but she won’t really be able to handle the social obligations of the family. Then he’s out of the house, so I go to talk to one of my younger female relatives who lives there to see how she’s doing with everything.

And I just can’t remember the rest of what happened in that dream, or the other dreams.

John: So, this is like taking a step backwards in terms of maintaining or sustaining something. And so you’re looking at how this whole schematic of what is apt to be transpiring. In other words, if the husband or the guy is going around the bend, how is that going to be affecting the other feminine elements in terms of how they have been getting by, when before they had a scenario in which there was a sense of balance. And now the whole thing is thrown up in the air. How are they going to be able to handle this?

Wow. So, essentially this is like a dream that portrays a type of worry, and what the worry is, is that, because you have to put yourself in the shoes of the young girl in the household, and then you have to recognize that when everything was a-okay in terms of the masculine and the feminine relationship in the order of the family, then things should have been just fine for her because she would be learning and growing in an atmosphere that was conducive.

And so the question you now seem to have is that, if all of this gets thrown up in the air, does this mean that what had maybe been a type of cadence, and balance, and flow, if this is thrown up in the air, is this going to destroy the equanimity and balance of the young girl, the daughter in the family, or does she have her own center of balance that is able to rise up beyond all of this?

In other words, is something about to be broken, and if there is collateral damage that will ensue in relationship to the young daughter? Or, a really other perverse way of looking at it is, is the young daughter so out of balance that she helped contribute to a lack of clarity in relationship to what helped hold the equation of things together so that the father went around the bend? Because the father’s perspective always dotes and images through the daughter, too, and is something like that awry, too, in terms of a wholeness?

Because it is said that parents have children, and the type of children that they have enables them to grow and unfold, as well, and for him to be taking and going and doing something so radically different suggests or indicates that maybe he lacks what is necessary as an appreciation towards what he could come to know and see through the eyes of the daughter. So there’s that.

So the question then is, what would trigger a dream like this? In other words, you actually saw something that it would be nice if you could, as a container energy, pull things through better, pull things through better as an awareness and a consciousness.

You went the other direction in terms of the responsibility. That’s an interesting way to look at it, as well, because the conception is that it’s always the masculine that’s out there making things safe, or trying to break through the clarity of things so that the ideation is reached and arrived at. And the feminine energy sits kind of waiting, or in a quality of herself, to help pull that down and through.
