When our dreams take us all over the map, and show us different situations in different places, it often indicates that we are unable to process something inside. Here we begin with babies being born, indicating something new is arising, but then the traveling begins, first to the mountains of Alaska with difficult and icy terrain, and then to the desert where the dreamer continues to try to make solid connections. In dreams, as in life, things cannot come together until we are ready for them, and until we can manage the inner logistics that are required. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My very earliest dreams I didn’t recall, I think they were just a kind of reaction to our company. Then I have a dream where I seem to be visiting a woman who is in this kind of communal ward in a hospital because she’s had a baby. And there’s another gal there that has had a baby. I think I’m a young man in the dream, and I go to kind of give some support to them. 

The place is rather chaotic and it feels like she kind of leaves the hospital. And I think she leaves the hospital with both babies, her baby and the baby the other girl had. Maybe the other girl didn’t want the baby, I don’t know. 

They’re living in a house, and at the house they live in there’s a break in. The man breaks in but it feels like I visit or something and I scare him away, he doesn’t seem to really cause any harm or do anything major. But, because of the break in, it feels like we want to explore moving. 

So the next thing I know, we’re in someplace like Alaska, and we’re looking at this commune up there. When I first look at this commune I see that I go over to like the edge of the town and look up to the mountain. And these people have built all these homes that kind of go right up the side of the mountain. It’s like they’ve dug into the side of the mountain and they have a trail of homes kind of one after another going up the mountain. You even wonder quite how you climb up there. And they do say it’s kind of a unique community to try to live in because it is kind of tricky getting up there. 

And I’m thinking about this, and I wander off with a friend and we go over and we walk out, you know, I’m not paying too much attention when we’re walking, I suddenly look down and I realize we’ve walked out on ice. And it’s a deep green-colored ice almost, that’s why I got confused, I thought I was still on land. We’ve gone out a certain distance and I suddenly realize that I’m kind of like softly gesturing to the other person that we need to walk back toward shore because I’m not sure how thick this ice is. 

And then I suddenly realize that this huge slab of ice that we’re walking on has broken off from the main part of the ice. It’s even tilting in, we’re starting to slide. But, lo and behold, some of the people nearer the land have even built a little ice bridge that we get to and then we can get back on land. 

And I go over and I explore how it is that we climb up the hillside and look at the homes because by now I’m getting really interested in these homes and I even go into some and I realize that I think one of us has some abilities as a nurse or something. So we could be of help in this community, we’d probably fit in pretty well. 

And then the dream seems to shift. And I seem to be like an older man and I’m in the desert. And I’m traveling through the desert, we come to a town because the people are stopping for the night. And one of the locals is throwing things here and there and he throws something at us that we want, maybe it’s a jug of water or something. And I’m an older man, but I reply to him in some kind of broken Arabic or something, and he’s trying to see if I can catch what he’s throwing. And he’s making some kind of a joke about the tourists trying to speak the Arabic or whatever. 

And I seem to have that dream twice. It had kind of a funny feeling to it. An amusing feeling to it. The way he was throwing something to us, and we were out there traveling the desert, and there were camels around. And it was the opposite in terms of environment from where I was before, which was like in Alaska.

John: So it’s a traveling dream in which you are dealing with the consequence of something of an over capacity, and you’re looking at this over capacity. Instead of dealing with the over capacity in the present, you’re looking at how this is unbalanced or something inside of yourself somewhere else – almost like a portal effect, but not quite because you don’t really actually identify the problem. 

But what doesn’t make sense is you’re not identifying it. It’s like I guess you’d say it’s a family problem, and yet how is it a problem for you? It’s affecting you. It starts off taking the sequence of something, it starts off with the woman and it’s as if she can’t handle the capacity of all of that. There’s something about that that affects her way of being able to relate to herself.

And I kept listening to try to figure out why that should affect the way she relates to herself, thinking that maybe there was another baby, or another quality of energy, or maybe it was just something that distracted or distorted her? Maybe it was something that shouldn’t have happened, or the way that it happened resulted in some sort of tearing down of a security or something? And that you were able to take and go back and find kind of a type of cohesion, or a healing from that. 

In other words, you say the dream you couldn’t remember occurred on which the issue was stirred, and then this is like a type of putting something into motion because then what shifted was having to deal with the element of the atmosphere of things and you’re kind of thrown to a foreign side of yourself, which was Alaska or something, that wasn’t quite right. And then you seem to be okay traveling. 

The dream was trying to show you some quality of recognition or realization, or something inside yourself, that you have for coping purposes. So it’s in the desert that one develops a greater sense of overallness, a greater sense of being able to handle a larger spaciousness. Would you equate the desert as the development of the shamanistic side of grounding that can have a compassion?

In other words, something was too narrow in Alaska, in which there was the beginning of the dream in which something is awry in terms of an imbalance with regards to the baby. And then the solution to that was to go into another kind of isolation, or a specific kind of mannerism of oneself in Alaska. 

And then the desert was like a type of breaking through that. And that this was a process of dealing not with the feminine wearing down of something, but more with a masculine kind of reaching out, a type of strength coming into the situation – as opposed to a type of withering. 

It’s a different way to describe something, but you’d have to say that you were resolving, you know, I like to try to keep it into a Jungian format and say you’re resolving a mother complex or a father complex, but you don’t say it like that. You would just say that you had found a means to liberate yourself.

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.
