Posts Tagged ‘panther in a dream’

crackIf we think about a life in service to something higher – which is fundamental to religions and spiritual paths – we usually call up in our minds the selflessness of people such as Mother Teresa. But, as this dream points out, it doesn’t have to look like that at all. In this image we see that the privacy of the person is gone, that everything being done is seen, on an energetic level, and that there is a contract and responsibility in that relationship. Honoring that contract is what service to something higher is all about. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The only thing I remember of my dreams was seeing something like a black panther run across my vision. Then I was awake for a lot of the night. And then I had this dream where you and I were living in England, or someplace. There were a few other people that were staying with us, and some young men, and we’d recently gotten a puppy.

In addition to the puppy I think at least one of the other people had a little dog, and then there was a third little dog that was around. At one point, I went and crawled out a window that led to a ledge that was outside, and then the ledge had like two levels, and you had gone out with me.

Then you crawled onto a part of the ledge that was hard to reach, and you said that you were feeling so desperate that the only thing that was keeping you going was the puppy. And you were thinking you had to go somewhere, or go travel. And I wondered if you wanted me to go with you, but you didn’t want me to – so I was a little depressed about that. So I go back in.

Then there’s a series of things that happen. When I first go back in I go and someone else has come that has some new puppies, so all the dogs are playing together in the living room. So I’ve gone in and I’m with them, and with the guys, and playing with the dogs and the puppies. One of the people that lives with us is going to go take the dogs for a walk.

Then I’m also looking for some laundry to do, and I go into a bathroom and I realize that the window is covered with these kind of blue papers. One of them has fallen apart and I realize I can see into the window of our neighbor’s place. They’re kind of trying to cover up how they can see into ours, but then I realize I’m in the wrong room. I’m in the laundry room instead of the bathroom, that I’m a level down further than I thought I was.

Then I go back into the living room again. And a couple of Middle Eastern relatives, women, come. They come and they must have been celebrating something, like one of the girls must have had a special birthday, or event, and she’s pressing some gifts upon this girl. And they were like an engraved, it almost looked like a platinum bracelet with engraved scenes on it, and two or three other things. And then the girl had also given a gift back to her mother, or whoever else was with them.

And I was kind of studying that out, looking at what had been engraved, or carved, or given. And then I looked around for you, and I went back out; there was someone else sitting where you had been – I didn’t know where you had gone to.

John: The image of the cat running across has to do with something that has been brought to your attention. It’s like a quick glimpse. It’s not like it’s something that’s sustainable. It’s more inflective. By sustainable, I mean it’s not sustainable at this point in time. It’s more inflective. It’s more of a coming through.

An image of a black cat is a change agent kind of thing that is intended and meant to be. It can create a reaction but, even if it does create a reaction, it doesn’t change the fact of what occurred.

And then, the out-on-the-ledge business and the puppy, what that has to do with is the recognition of a quality that goes back and takes something that was inflected as a mere glimpse, progresses it forward to where it is close, like a puppy, that it is at hand to be dealt with. And that to do this requires a certain resolve, and commitment, and one has to make that commitment or they start losing a certain connection.

Which is another way of saying that things have built up in a roundabout way to the point where the reflections in the outer, that had been something that one contended with indifferently, we’ll say, are now reflections that behind those reflections is something meaningful in which one has to tie, or connect, into in terms of their being.

That requires one to align, or to contend, with a certain side of themselves. To do so, because there is a real sadness that prevails when one carries on, or conducts themselves, in a way that keeps this sort of thing in a kind of pacified state.

What that image is about in terms of the laundry room, in terms of the public area, is that what is at hand has an effect that is like a mirroring that goes both ways, with inner to outer, and outer to inner. And that there comes a point to where one’s life is no longer a type of privacy, where you have to contend with the neurosis sides of this, that, or the other of one’s nature, like one would in a bathroom you know, taking care of business kind of thing.

There comes a point in time when you’re kind of out in the open in relationship to things that are all around you, you know visually, in other words, there’s no barriers. You see, they see, it all sees. And when it’s like that, then the quality of a natural knowingness of an openness is there to take in, to be able to behold.

The fact that one dreams every night, you could even correlate that to the laundry room kind of thing, because there is a visual that’s working both ways. That’s also an image that proceeds as a flow from both a kind of light rising down to touch light, or in other words something can see in. And then light rising up to touch light, which is a seeing without; and that’s meant to be kept open.

And when it’s open it enables things to be readily there, which is the image in which there’s a mother, or? It enables that which is kind of out of reach, ordinarily out of reach, in terms of a quality of coming through awareness, it enables that to just be there. It’s just naturally there.

So you put the whole thing together and what you have is you have kind of a shock effect that relates to the fact that there is something more going on than meets the eye: the black cat. Then there’s the having to contend with the idea of whether one is going to be able to meet the challenge of what is presented, and to do so is to relate to the friendly side of yourself, not to the sides of yourself that have to contend with this, and contend with that, in which there’s still some sort of sorting out to do.

You’re working with the inner friend, and to do that you have to completely commit. You have to go out on a ledge. You have to allow things to flow. Well, when you allow things to flow, that allowing of things to flow means that you have to be in a dynamic that is different than what you’re used to being in, in which you have to be like in the laundry room where you’re seen and also see. In other words, you don’t hide, you allow everything to affect you, to touch you.

And when it’s like that, that keeps you in connection to all parts of yourself that are in the wholeness. And the Middle Eastern shows the extending out quality, expansive taking in quality, is there – and, of course, that all works in cohesiveness. There is something about that that all fits, that all comes together. And so the sum total of all of that is your oneness, is the intended oneness on a soul level of your being.

So it starts off with a flicker, and goes from a flicker to a commitment, from a commitment to a surrender, and then from a surrender to an emptiness, to an overallness. Quite a progressed dream.

spun-paint-photos-fabian-oefnerHere we have an image of a panther, and then a smaller cat, running around a pole to the point where they blur together. The movement of the cats expresses a certain energetic dynamic that’s at play in relation to the energetic of the pole itself. Is this merging of the cat energies a good thing, or is it a suppression, a governing down of a greater energy into an energy that can be more easily handled? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had this dream where it feels like I’m in this room and there’s a pole in the room. It feels kind of like an organic pole, though. Well, it feels organic because it just doesn’t feel so much like metal or wood or anything. It feels more like something a tree might be made out of, or vine or something. 

Then there’s a large cat, that’s kind of like a panther, that comes in and runs around it fast so you don’t really see him. And then there’s a smaller cat that comes and does the same thing. 

There are one or two people in the room and I’m observing. It feels like that whatever goes on in the room, when you have these two cats run around there really fast and they kind of swirl and merge and stuff, pretty soon you can substitute the smaller cat for the larger cat, and everybody thinks that that was the cat that was there all along. 

It’s just kind of amazing to me that it’s kind of like one of these slight-of-hands that people fall for. I just watch this a couple of times and I’m kind of amazed that actually people can make this kind of substitution and someone thinks that’s how it is. 

Then I have a dream, and I don’t recall the dream, but I come back to this. 

John: Well, so far what you’re doing, what the pole is, is the pole is this thing that goes up and down that the breath rides. It’s organic, it’s natural. And the thing that runs around it is the interaction, and the dynamic, of things that cycle in the outer, and that you can adjust to almost anything. In other words, you have a certain quality of energetic. 

This energetic, this cat-like energetic, is important because it’s kind of like how in the process of this organic pole, that is the breath, that goes up and down this pole and stuff like that, what you’re also now depicting is how it is that you relate from that.

In other words, you get the energetic of the breath going up and down the pole, and then from that energetic you carry that forth into life. And what the energy is that you need to look at, that you’re carrying forth into life, is something of like a panther energy. That’s how you’re seeing it.

But as you do this, you can come under a type of amnesia, where you can block things out, and everything can be numbed or normalized. Thus the big cat can become the small cat. When you see that you’re able to adapt, adjust, and let go of things in that capacity, you are realizing that something isn’t right, that somehow you’re misusing the energetic.

This pole is interesting because things go around and around this pole, they cycle around this pole, and this pole is something that’s an energetic of which the breath goes up and down. It’s housed in this capacity.

In other words, this is an image of creation, in a way. And the cat going around and around the pole – something has changed. What has changed is that cat and a smaller cat can become one and the same.

That is kind of good, on one level, because the higher self and the lower self do merge like that, but also, if there is a lack of consciousness and attention – because you have to have a certain attention for that to be able to happen – and if something like that is inadvertently happening because you have ability to block something out, then that denotes that one is not grasping a depth they need to grasp.

It’s kind of something like this: A person can be under a certain state of distress, having cancer, or something like that is a state of distress. It knocks you back, and you settle into a certain heartfulness – which is the import of that happening. But then you can kind of numb yourself back up and big and little can cross each other off.

Now, it’s good if you can do that as an aspect of consciousness, but if you’re doing that as a way of just shutting something down, or suppressing what it is that’s actually going on inside of you, and you don’t have the consciousness that comes with the pole at the same time, then that’s not natural because then you’re veiling yourself. 

What you’re doing is you’re actually, in a roundabout way, describing the process upon which a person takes and loses themselves in creation. You don’t mean to be doing that. You’re describing how it is.

What you’re doing, in your short example, is you’re describing how it is that you’re able to adapt, or adjust, to a situation in a way that you can suppress its effect upon how it tears at you, or pulls at you, in order to carry it better, or to just accept it in terms of how it is. And that would be okay if you also carried the deep touching of something else that’s meant to be recognized, and realized there, which is the aspect of the breath, and the consciousness that one is to have of that, which is all associated with this natural organic pole.

It’s not a man-made pole. It’s an organic pole. It’s a part of a process, part of an unfoldment. It goes from top to bottom. But your attention is what is going around and around, the panther energy that’s doing this, that, and the other, for some reason intent on doing this, that, or the other, and then it blurs out where the big cat and the little cat are one and the same.

Like I say, that’s not a bad image, in and of itself, or I should say that’s only a bad image in and of itself because it doesn’t have the corresponding consciousness with the breath. If it had the corresponding consciousness of the breath, it wouldn’t have the indulgence, either, and would be able to recognize how everything makes sense in the order of things, how it all comes together, the big and the little. 

All of it comes together, as one and the same, the higher self and the lower self become one. But you don’t have that consciousness. And so what you’re doing instead, is the typical thing that a human being does, is a type of denial. And when you do this type of denial, it just all blands out.

It’s very, very interesting because that’s what the outer world is doing, too, and so we’ll see where else it goes now.
