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?

1192This dream shows a device that could prove very useful: a fan that blows problem situations away. Yet we already do have such a device, and it’s known as the human design. Yes, there will always be things to deal with in a physical life, but if we understand that we are here to become part of the universe, rather than to make ourselves, and our lives, a solely planetary thing, what we become entangled with will be much less important in the long run. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I remember being in the mountains in my dream. It seems like I’m talking to a friend of mine, a man who spends a lot of time outdoors, and hiking, and skiing, and doing things in the mountains.

And part of what I’m talking about in a way is the device I have that, it looks like a round, circular fan, that’s in some kind of a special case, that can roll out. And when the fan rolls out, whatever it blows away, it’s not a fan that really works on air as much as it works on a situation.

That’s all I really remember of the dream.

John: So you’re in the mountains here, in a situation in which you’re challenged by something as a setting. In other words, to be in a mountain, or climb a mountain, you’re relating to something that is an obstacle, in terms of your development, in terms of yourself.

And, generally, the idea of having to contend with the mountain is the idea of having to take on some definition, or challenge, or something about yourself that you’re still identifying with, or buying into. And what your dream is showing you is that – it’s not explaining how this works, or why this works – but it’s just saying that whatever is there, that you normally would be all caught up in and having to contend with, is not having its usual, in terms of obstacle-like nature, it’s not having its usual way with you, because you know that the way to deal with this is to just hook up a fan and blow it all away.

In other words, blow away whatever it is that you’re having to contend with there, which is an interesting way of portraying that you let go, and that you are able to be at ease, or at peace, or in a type of stillness, as opposed to constantly contending with something. So what is it that we constantly contend with?

You’re just presenting something as an overall image, and you’re being shown that in this overall image that you need to have a particular kind of mood, or tone, or demeanor. In other words, you’re seeing yourself what you’re doing, without looking at the issues or the circumstances, you find yourself knowing how to let go of something around you, in other words, to blow something away, as opposed to sitting there contending with it.

To blow something away, to use the fan and blow something away, is what you’re really blowing away is your personal story, a story that would be looking at what you were doing and trying to see it as being this, that, or the other in some aspect. But you know that it limits you in some fashion and, therefore, you have to let go of it.

Now, it’s a simple dream, but it’s a statement, and it’s an image that points to the general motif of how it is in terms of everything. Whatever it is that you take on as an involvement, that you’re telling yourself you’re intrigued at having to do as a responsibility or whatever, you are actually taking and going from an overall naturalness into something specific, and you are telling yourself that this is something that’s fun and wonderful to do, and it can be if you can do it in a free letting go way, but to the degree to which you become obsessive, or go to an extreme about it, you find out that even though it makes sense to you when you were doing this that this was going to create some sort of better situation or overall balance, what ends up happening is that this consumes you, that this actually, as an activity, can be most exhausting when you would have expected it to be kind of liberating because it was intriguing to you.

Well, this is the nature of obsession. And everything that we do is an obsession when we take on an action that goes into the outer world. That’s why the shaman who realizes that when they journey into the outer world they have to kind of be in a state of reverence, or almost ask a permission, because what they’re doing is they’re stepping out of the overallness that they are, that is all of life, in order to do an excursion. And if they don’t hold a particular kind of attunement they’re going to get lost in their diversion. They’re going to take it too literally, and it’s going to become something that they think is real, and that they approach then obsessively.

And that’s kind of how it is for everybody, you know, that you see out there. You see people doing all of these activities and, in terms of yourself, you can look at it, you can kind of understand what’s involved there, you could see how time consuming it is, you could see how distractive it is, and you don’t have to do it. You can tell that that’s going to hurt the heart. And so you have to let go of that. You don’t identify with that. That’s the fan that blows things away.
