Jeane: I lost a lot of the main part of this dream – I just remember the end.

I’m in a multilevel building. I do counseling on the ground floor. There’s a couple, with their children, who really want to see me, but the only appointment available is with another woman. She’s out sick, so I pop up and offer to see them. 

I just have to find an empty room to see them in. I make sure that when I see the couple that I round up their kids, too. It just seems important to see them. The dream also indicated that if I counseled these people, it would lead to some keys becoming available.

John: The ideas behind these images have to do with how one relates to the outer (world), so that that which is intertwined is able to come through. In other words, there’s naturalness to everything, and the naturalness starts with the outer (planet) because that’s what we’re in. We can’t bring through the clarity of an intertwined linkage, or create a connection, if we have to hide things or if we have to maintain ourselves as something separate, thinking that that gives us security.

So the theme here has to do with penetrating, or reaching beyond, the natural barriers that exist. Doing so enables a greater part of who we are to come into aliveness.

In your dream, you’re working with time and place. The timing is such that, under ordinary circumstances, the family would be seeing the other counselor. That would put them on a separate tangent in terms of how this part of you would be trying to figure out how to understand what’s going on.

In other words, under normal timing that connection isn’t possible. But here the other counselor (also you) is sick, so you have found a different place (empty room) for you to meet, because something intends for you to connect in some way (you sensed the urgency of their need).

So something in you has agreed to let something go so this connection is possible. You’re agreeing in the dream to see them in terms of how they are and who they are. You’re agreeing and recognizing that you need to breakthrough the difference in the space, and that you have to pull the timing together in order to facilitate a free flow or intertwining that’s meant to occur.

What you’re supposed to be doing in this dream is recognizing the vibration of what it’s like to be more open in a way that enables the inner to naturally come through you into outer life.

The way people do this ordinarily, meaning conceptually, is that they think they have to present themselves as holding a certain position in terms of how they are, and they present it as distinct or different from anyone else. And they do hold it to be distinct and separate. They see themselves, and have identified themselves, in a distinct and separate way.

As long as we do that in our outer lives, it means we’re doing the same thing in terms of our inner consciousness. We have to be able to appreciate everything in the environment around us for how it is, and what it is, in order to connect with our inner in terms of how the inner truly is.

As long as we see the outer, the world beyond our skin, as having all these areas of differentiation, those differentiations put in place veils that limit our understanding. Then we are forced to interact with the veils – the separation – and not the interconnections behind them.

Therefore we can’t break through the time and space differential. Then we don’t allow the communication from the other side to naturally permeate through, and we don’t catch up with the Oneness. We don’t catch up with the naturalness and there isn’t a free flow.

John: We’ve been examining what it means to surrender to the flow of life (see Playing it Safe). When we resist that, by being a slave to our own personal involvements, psychologies, and patterns, we disconnect from everything else in the universe. That’s how we deceive ourselves.

But, if we can get out of our own way, we then somehow gain access to natural knowings about what to do next. Said another way, we are more able to appreciate the flow if we take personal aspects out of the equation and connect strictly to what is natural (universal), or predesigned, in terms of Divine Will.

The closeness of the connection is determined by the degree to which we are able to step aside from our ego-based experience and instead participate more like a natural, living organism in what is unfolding. 

It’s an aliveness, and it comes with catching up with Divine Will, beginning from our inner selves and reflecting that into the outer world, and then it begins to work from the outer world into our inner lives. That is the whole cycle of creation, when a human being is living as they’re meant to live – open to the heart of hearts of life itself.

Basically humans have come to believe, through our self-centered view of life, that our safety is based in our personal protections. But those become the veils of illusion – they’re like our own personal filters – which prevent us from seeing and experiencing the whole of life.

The removal of these veils leads to us to an understanding about the evolution of the soul in the greater scheme of things. Said another way, it’s like the light from within rises up to touch the light of Divine Will, which comes down to touch the spiritual, universal essence imbedded within each of us.

I have this dream image in which there is a great big pot of soup, or stew, being cooked. It’s a huge melting pot of things, and there is a cook. The cook from time to time steps aside to gather more ingredients, or more components.

When that happens, as I’m sitting around watching the cook work, I’m compelled to step forward and stir the pot a bit so it doesn’t burn – but only while the cook is away. It’s like a natural ebb and flow between us, as I step forward and recede.

It’s an interesting little image because I don’t see myself as the cook, but I still do have a role in the process of creating this whole pot of things. The cook never asks for my involvement, I just naturally respond to the need.

What’s obvious to me, in terms of what this image means relative to our ongoing transition here in Las Vegas, is that everywhere we go things are constantly being redesigned in terms of their various functions within the greater Las Vegas environment. It’s an ongoing evolution – nothing is static in terms of the elements of the city fulfilling their roles to the utmost of their possibility.

So part of this message is to understand that nothing is to be denied, that everything is part of the mix, and it’s just a matter of being able to handle that, of being able to work with that, and to not become overwhelmed (which is when our ego protections fill the gap created by such disconnections).

The magic, of course, is in working with all the ingredients that can be added that can cause or allow something to unfold or happen. We can (safely) get lost in that magic as life flows this way and that, just as there is magic in the ways of Las Vegas. We can see everything as a flow of light.

Las Vegas already does its best to simulate the flow of light – that’s what’s so intriguing about it. But who is able to pierce the veils, because each person tends to go off into their own little octave? As a consequence, we might appreciate it in a certain linear way, or sometimes get a little overwhelmed because we see ourselves as not catching up because we’re not in the flow of it.

Whether we are speaking of a city, or of a spiritual journey, humans are not meant to impose their personal expectations on life as it exists and is flowing. We are meant to include ourselves in the flow, knowing that we carry all the protection we need through our deeper connection to Divine Will.
