i00sEverything we see and know works within a system: galaxies, planets, flora, and fauna. Nothing can survive, or thrive, or evolve, without the interactions, and integrations, with other aspects within the system. For the human, that system is not limited to the ecology and environment of the planet, but is, potentially, the entire system of the universe. But we can’t integrate ourselves within that universal system all by ourselves, we need to become integrated through an energetic alignment to the purposes of the whole.

Jeane: In the next dream I seem to be in a house. It must be with my fiancé, or someone, because it feels like maybe it’s even his house. And I’m exploring some of the rooms in the house because the house has different levels, and his parents live on one floor, and there’s some floors that are maybe even rented out, and there’s other floors that we’re staying at, plus there’s some room where my parents will visit.

And there seems to be a ground level where when my mother comes, that’s where we go, but at one point I want to take her, or take my parents, and take them up through kind of a narrow hallway and a doorway, and some rooms have been remodeled that are even kind of ugly, or need remodeling yet, but haven’t been, and take her or them to where I can introduce them to my fiancé’s parents, and show them the rooms where the parents stay, which are a little bit nicer rooms, more finished.

John: So, the parents, what do you think the parents represent in this case? What do you think the fiancé represents?

Jeane: Well, to me, sometimes the parents represent an energy that’s already settled, you know…

John: Right.

Jeane: The fiancé represents kind of a new energy and we’re remodeling still.

John: Right, right. I would say it in more of a masculine way, by saying that the fiancé kind of represents God, and the parents represent qualities of change agents, of a depth within that, that have yet to become settled, that is astir.

And so this is a dream that is seeking to add to, correct, or modify, adjust what you dreamt before. And so, what you dreamt before is there’s a greater stillness, there’s a greater stillness requiring a greater letting go, and then there is the requirement of having to take into account… you know, you can’t come down in your usual, singular way. You have to go around and come down on this other trail that involves incorporating, and intertwining, with something more that is absolving, and resolving, and coming into a wholeness.

Whenever you take and you subject, and introduce, yourself to something that is unique and different, it’s like embracing something new, and you now have to adjust to that. And so this dream is indicating that the confusion and the chaos that you experience is not really grief, it’s having to adjust with the fact that it has to be done in a different and new way. You have to let go to that as the process.

It isn’t something well settled, and so that’s what you’re adding. In other words, you’re explaining why it is that something has changed. What you’re doing is you’re explaining that, because something has changed, it is having its effect upon the overallness of your being. And it’s going to take awhile for you to figure out how to incorporate that as a settled out, greater beingness, which would be a stillness, but initially it’s not a stillness. Initially it’s like this and that, and that and that and that, all over the place. And that’s why a person tends to hold to a singular note is because they think the closer to a stillness that way, but, in this particular case, so much is going on, things are speeding up, one has in order to incorporate it all one has to reach out and take it all in, and initially, that can be discombobulating. But that’s the shorter way.

Jeane: So the last little image I had was I seem to be reaching into this really narrow, small room. I think I want to remove a kitten or something from the room, and I have a little piece of cardboard in my hand because there’s a bee in the room, and I keep trying to move the bee out of the room, or out of the way, so that I can grasp the kitten and remove the kitten from the room.

But the room is so tight that I really can’t do it without getting stung by the bee, which makes me feel sad because then I know the bee will die. I’ve been trying to keep moving the bee out of the way so it didn’t sting the kitten, or me, and it could live, but it doesn’t seem to work that way.

John: You have your way of dealing with the cute little kitten, and then the area of the bee, and how are you going to do this without creating some sort of grief? Because you can’t get in there, and to save the kitten the quarters are such that the bee’s going to sting. And then the bee’s going to die. How are you going to do this? When you see it in there, how do you get it out? What’s the trick?

This all has to do with an aspect of kind of a quality of a depth of letting go. Which came first, the chicken, or the egg? All these have to do with the letting go. And then you have the stillness, and you know.

This is the schematic, you might say, in terms of what was awkward last night. It’s the schematic, but the inflection that I got was the schematic is going to be awkward because, as pointed out in your dreams, you can’t unfold that way in a singular way. You have to go around, you have to tie in with others, and then the coming down then is the faster way.

So you’re tying in with others that are going through the obstacles, because the mountain is the obstacle to come down, in order to contend with the way things have been moved around. The deck chairs have been moved around in the ship to contend with that.

Now the ship could still be the Titanic or something, but this is how you do it. Chances are it won’t be. It will be if it’s one of grief because you’ll keep tearing it down, because you will not properly let go, but it can be one of joy, and peace, too, and stillness. It can go one of both ways, of either way.

And it can seem like it’s all askew because to have to contend with these other notes in life, to integrate all of that, is going to create a bit of a peculiarity. That’s so interesting about your dream with the fiancé. The fiancé is like God, and then the attributes of God are like the parents, or the components. In other words, to properly pull all of that together, you have to take all of that into account. They all have to meet and come together and, until they do, things are in a bit of a disarray.

It’s as if all of it has been laid out, but then there’s this bifurcation that’s suddenly there. Is it purposeful, or is it caught in a whiplash, a back step or something? Because one has learned and understood all that’s necessary to understand. In other words, you know that it’s inner into outer, and you know that God is a still essence, and that you know that creation is a hidden treasure that longs to be known, in order to cause something to be seen. You know that there’s the integration of the stillness.

A3n34It’s one of the very difficult things to do, to incorporate into our daily process what insights and understandings we have found, or come to know. And it’s difficult because we have a lifetime of patterns and ways that we identify as “us.” Yet in the work of a journey we seek to remake ourselves in accordance with what we now believe, and that requires constant repetition, and trial and error, as we learn how to apply the inner into the outer in our lives. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I don’t remember the very beginning of the next dream but, essentially, I have moved into a town. It’s like I’ve moved from a very pretty mountain town on a lake, down to a slightly larger town. They’re not that far apart, but they’re very different.

And I’ve settled in there and I’m living then with the man I’m with, but I have a very good friend that has moved up to where I used to live. And it feels like I want to go visit her, but I also am feeling this pull to go back to the mountain town, maybe even live there again temporarily. I’m not sure. I don’t know if I could get the man I’m living with to agree to that, or not, either.

But I decide to go up there and explore. And, when I go up, I know a house there and even though the house has been remodeled many times, I know that it’s a house where a woman leases out rooms, or certain levels, to people, and I know her. I’ve maybe even stayed there before at one point in my life.

So I actually go up, and she doesn’t appear to be home; and I go in. Then I hear a dog growling, but I know it’s a dog that I know so I even let the dog into the house. And then she comes down from another room, then I kind of look around, and then I discover my friend that had moved up there and I’m also aware there’s some events going on in town, some of which I might want to see, but I’m also on a schedule where I’ll have to get back at a certain hour.

But my friend wants to give me a little bit of a massage before I leave, so I go out to the backyard and lay down on the grass and she gives me somewhat of a massage, but I suddenly realize that I’m very short on time and I want to get back before dark. And there’s still something that I want to see that’s happening in the town, so I hop up.

She gives me a little kiss and we go over to where I think my clothes are, and I start to put on one dress, it’s a black dress, but very pretty, but in a very old fashioned style that comes all the way down to the feet, and I realize it’s not my dress. It’s a dress the landlady had made and sewn from an old fashioned pattern, so it’s quite lovely, but I realize it’s not mine. So I fold it up, and then I find my clothes there and get dressed.

And I’m wondering if it’s going to work out for me to move back to the area for awhile, because I’d have to talk my boyfriend into it. And right before I go back, it feels like I go to another area of a town to where there’s like a street parade or something going on that I just kind of want to catch a glimpse of. That was the end of the dream.

John: Wow, that’s really a deep dream. And, it’s interesting how what you’re dreaming still works so much so in terms of looking at how something comes from inner into outer, or how outer plays with inner. It’s almost as if one’s been flooded by, as a scenario, the microcosmic effect of life in relationship to, and its correlation, I should say, to the internet of everything; the internet of everything in the microcosm of outer life.

And then there’s the offset of the inner net of everything. And so with that being kind of the overriding motif, what you’re doing is you’re looking at where you are in relationship to, let’s say that as an influence factor. In the first dream you’ve pointed out that you have to hold a position, maintain a position, not overstretch from that position, so that an access of innerness coming into the outer can come through, and awaken, and invoke a clarity.

In the second dream, you have a choice of going back to something that you remember from long ago, which is like a mountain town, or it’s like a raw energy having been refined, and that you are able to go there and appreciate a closeness to something deeper than a denseness, or what would be considered a denseness, that’s more in the outer, in the lower, larger town that you find yourself to be situated.

And the thing is, is you’re playing with the breath multiple times. It’s like you started more from on high, and then you brought something down into life, and you expanded and spread yourself out into the wholeness of life, in the city. And have learned that it’s important to be there, taking things in, and yet at the same time you have some knowledge of this other, inner place.

You’re not questioning or challenging the orders of things, in terms of being in the equation of manifestation; you’re not questioning or challenging it. You’re fully okay with that, and yet still have a memory of something more, at a deeper level inside, and the scenario that you’re in, and the relationships that you have, involve having connected with a guy, a person that you’re with in terms of this outer, who it took effort for him to come down and be in the outer because he had been more natural in kind of this innerness space.

And so once he’s come down and gotten accustomed, and accommodated, in the outer, for him then to go back to the inner – would he be violating his orders? In other words because, in a sense, he was required to come down. And so then to go back to the other, would that be a breaking away of kind of an intent that was meant to be, in terms of the flow, in terms of him coming down?

Now it wouldn’t be if he is able to look at the situation, if you’re able to go back into the innerness. In other words, what opens up in the feminine is something that then, when it’s opened up, is like a handing back to someplace else. Now it wouldn’t be a crackup, or a breakup, or deviation if he is able to go back into this higher place, or higher-self part, or realized side, the essence of himself. If he’s able to go back and look at that, and yet know that the directive is to maintain the journey, or this whole quality of a workability of inner and outer at play.

So, in other words, you’re playing with this dynamic; you have to hold a continuity of a type of tension together in order for something to become visible, and you’re pointing this out to yourself in terms of the process of awakening working like that because that is how you see yourself situated, in terms of what is going on in life around you.

So it’s as if it’s being explained to you, in this dream, what the dynamic is that you’re facing. And this dream is like also explaining the dynamic that a whole bunch of people are facing, and it’s also explaining a dynamic of the times in that if a person doesn’t shut things out they’ll realize that there is a huge awakening of things going on, and yet at the same time there is the need to be able to hold a certain sense, as well, and you have to hold the sense to manifestation, and the importance of the overallness of that, and yet be able to go back to the innerness.

The masculine has to come down with the innerness into the outerness, and yet it’s important that it remembers what the space looks like, and is like, even though they’re not allowed to stay there, that it’s important for them to know what that is like. They can be more effective at coming into the outer if they follow the prime directive, premeditated, condition of what that is like – but not leave the journey, hold to the trueness.

imag324esIn a chase dream, who is the pursuer and who is the pursued? The simple answer is: you are. Because we are all of the characters in our dreams. But what’s interesting is that a chase dream shows us how one part of the inner life is resisting making a connection with another part of the inner life. But that connection wants to be made for the good of the whole. In this image, the pursuit is in a mine dug into a mountain, so it is happening at a great depth inside, where letting go of fundamental defense mechanisms can be a scary thing. Yet the unconscious is saying: trust us, it’s okay. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I remember my earliest dream, it felt like I was almost inside a mountain. Do you remember how when you see those movies when people are traveling around in carts inside mountains, like using the old miner’s carts? It almost felt like that.

There was a young man, or older boy, with me, and I had him on one of those carts, but maybe a little lower cart, and other things piled in the cart with him. And it felt like that was one of the ways that I was, in a sense, helping him get away longer, in a game, or last longer if we were being chased.

I had a feeling like something was happening where eventually everyone would be caught, but whatever I was doing with having him sit like lower in that cart with some things piled around him would maybe let him last longer in the game. That’s about the only impression I had of that dream.

John: So the typical image is, you scale a mountain in order to overcome it. You don’t go to the point where you’re overwhelmed, or immersed. Or at least that’s the question: can you do it that way?

Because the theme of the dreaming has to do with a quality of the vibration being such that you need to recognize and understand it as saying “no.” In other words, images and vibrations that tell you that something isn’t meant to be done that way, or isn’t meant to be done at this time that way, in other words, because it can change.

But you don’t eliminate something of a karmic flow that’s off by trying to do something that’s not intended. That only causes you to become more veiled, and it causes you to lose the acuity of your listening center. In other words, it’s like this: you have in the higher self, or the inner of the inner, you have light. And then in the outer and outer, or the smaller than smaller, you have sound and in the sound there is information – just like in the light there is information. But in the sound it works towards giving you guidance. From that you can come to know what is to be, or isn’t to be, in the smaller of small of which you don’t have a full recognition connectively because your senses are limited to a type of perception that is inclined to keep you viewing things as being in a multiplicity and, as such, then you have to learn how to, or think you have to learn how to, navigate within that, as opposed to accepting it as an aliveness, and a oneness, and a wholeness that permeates all of your being.

Now since the theme of the dreaming had to do with knowing how to recognize when something is not meant to be so, I’m wondering if your image of being inside a mine, or a mountain rather, if being inside is an overindulgence, or is something in which you are on a tangent and have gotten to a point where you aren’t able to recognize how something is able to be sorted out because of the overindulgence.

Now ordinarily, all things being the same when you have a dream in which you go into the depths of something it’s like going into the depths of yourself in order to work on the karma, or the waywardness, of one’s nature. Ordinarily you do that, you go into the depths like that in order to burn off the dross of karma, in order to come to grips with how it is that you are, or to see yourself more fully, to recognize within all of that is the greater wholeness of your being that you have not met before.

So you go into the depths of yourself to gain an access to this other. So the question I would have is, and the only way that you can know whether this is true or not is whether when you were inside the mountain, if the vibration of being inside of the mountain had the sense of a constriction that kept you from free flowing in a way that you needed to free flow? In other words, a mountain symbolically in and of itself represents an obstacle, so you’re inside the obstacle, maybe to up close and personal to the obstacle to be able to untangle it. Maybe you need to recognize, maybe by going into the mountain, like you’re doing, maybe you’re acting like the obstacle somehow or another is real – as opposed to it just being a defense mechanism or a quirk in the overallness vibration of your makeup. I don’t know. You’d have to denote that.

If it’s a sense of pursuit, then it is a type of defense mechanism. It’s a type of refusing to yield and let go, because when you let go you can become empty, and when you become empty you can have an access to something more that can flow through you. So if you have the sense that it has this whole other context that’s pressured against you, and you’re fighting that, then what you’re doing is you are not allowing yourself to be in a space of letting go. Like an example is, if you’re meditating and in the meditation your thoughts run, and then you try to stop your thoughts to meditate and the thoughts keep running, you’re being pursued, that’s like a pursuing. And it’s a defense mechanism and good luck going anywhere. If you’re haunted like that. And is this that kind of a haunting?
