Jeane: In this dream, I can’t remember if I’m a man or a woman, but I have a woman as a lover and she’s a brunette and an artist. She comes to visit me, or I visit her, but she likes to keep the relationship hidden.

What excites her is to make love in exotic situations, like on a train, so it feels like I’m always searching for something like that to please her, even though she also likes to keep everything hidden.

John: What this is indicating is that you like to be more open in regards to an activity or a flow. You don’t like to settle back in terms of something being routine.

You like taking on new challenges and you take them on as part of a sequence of unfolding events. That’s interesting. That’s opposite to most people, who tend to go to great lengths to get everything in their environment just so – no surprises, everything under control.

In other words, most people put great effort into defining everything in their lives, minimizing the variables that introduce struggle. Even worse, we even tend to think that’s the best way to interact with our environment – with the world outside ourselves.

What your dream image is showing is that you’re finding out that you’re able to be more connected if you allow yourself to just go into the free flow. It’s through that lack of inhibition (personal veils) that one’s connections to the inner worlds can open up.

Somewhere along the line we’ve gotten the idea that if we get rid of all the distractions happening around us it will give us greater control of our environment and, therefore, we’ll feel more at ease with things, we’ll feel less pressure and less confusion. We’ll know when we get there because we’ll feel lighter and happier in our nature.

That’s when many people think that they’re at their best but, actually, we’re at our best when we’re compelled to stay in the moment and flow with events. When we have to be in tune with what’s happening – more alert to the subtleties – we develop acuity, an ability to sense what is next, and how we can best relate to that, automatically.

Humans have come to think that the unfolding of life is somehow an intrusion on their plans. We expect everything to happen on our terms. But the process of allowing our higher connections to come through us – which is what we have been designed to do – can’t function when it is screened through our “self-first” viewpoint.

Your dream imagery portrays a lack of inhibition, together with a desire to keep the “relationship” hidden. That’s two sides of your own viewpoint. You know that letting go of personal limitations will put you more in the excitement and flow of life – the creativity of life – which is associated with sexual energy.

At the same time, this relationship with your higher self needs some protection in the outer world, because, for the most part, people won’t understand it. It’s between you and your higher self, and that’s okay. In connection with your higher self, you have the opportunity to let something more dynamic come through you, and you actually become more “real.”

That’s really how it works.

Jeane: In this dream we’re in outer space. I’ve gone down either to another ship or another planet and the man I’m with is still in a smaller ship.

There’s a mother ship and the man has a smaller spaceship, and then I’m down in another area. I can’t tell if I’m in a smaller space ship or if I’m actually down on a planet. I can’t remember that. The problem is we’re making a move to another planet and we need to have supplies approved by his mother who’s in between the mother ship and his ship.

His mother’s not completely on board with the move, so she’s not approving some of the supplies we need, which seem to be these silver objects and things. I’ve tried to persuade her. I’m not having much luck, but suddenly I get this bright idea that a lot of the supplies we need are smaller items that probably fit in the petty cash category. Items in that category can just be ordered without approval, i.e., we don’t have to go through his mother. 

In that way I can get the supplies to him. I know it’s not an ideal solution. It would be a lot better if the mother would just recognize what was needed and give it to us, but she’s not doing that. It’s the best plan I can come up with that solves the problem.

John: What you’re doing is describing a change, or shift, in the energetic nature of your own being. In this shift you are going away from what had been a stable, centered base of operations, i.e., the mother ship. And what you’re attempting to do can be seen as having an important quality in terms of the human condition.

In other words, there are certain things that one can do that will be accepted, but other things require a higher approval. In terms of the big picture, you are moving away from what had been your center and, as a consequence, the next place, or quality, you are moving into has not yet been fully approved, or fully recognized.

It’s a mixed message, because even though there’s a certain depth in terms of it all, it needs something more for it to fully come together. Within that you are given a bit of latitude – the smaller items – that can facilitate your ability to keep inching forward.

So you are in a transition within your self where you’re able to make little steps towards the transitioning (you’re able to get the smaller items). You’re able to put together certain things that need to be in the container (you), and that aspect is allowed or is accepted.

However, what really needs to be there – the bigger items – have not yet been made known to you. So there is a provision that is made for the smaller aspects to be given because it’s not part of some primary guidance. The primary guidance behind it all still hasn’t fully come through.

Perhaps the reason full guidance hasn’t come through is because there is often a limitation caused by internal fears when you throw yourself outside of the home base (your center of gravity). There’s a certain kind of sorrow in what it means to let go of that mother ship.

It’s a sorrow that suggests, or implies, that the full orders for what’s next haven’t been blessed in terms of your understanding, or in terms of your grasp of the linkage.

So it’s an interesting space to be sitting in, recognizing that you’re going away from the center, but not yet cleared for the complete transition.
