Posts Tagged ‘parents in a dream’

Our dreams need to communicate to us in images that we can relate to: homes, families, cars, mountains, oceans, animals, and even pets. These are all things we are familiar with from our life experience, so our subconscious uses them as symbolism for our inner relationships, the way certain aspects or psychologies behave in relationship to the part of us that is mostly in control. Once we understand this means of communication, our dreams can tell us so much about who we are, and who we are trying to become.

Jeane: I just remember my last dream. And, in this last dream, I’m at my parents’ house, they’re not there. It feels like my sister and I and some other people are helping clear out the house.

For some reason, my sister and these other two people, and they have a couple big dogs, we’ve got it to where they’re out sleeping in the driveway right now. And I’m in cleaning up some of the rest of the house. And suddenly I remember that the little dog that belongs to my parents, who’s really kind of old and on its last legs, that I took outside, that I haven’t seen it for several days.

So I go out into the driveway where I took the dog, and as I’m walking out there, as I come to the last room in the house, I notice that there’s some little piles of dirt I have to step around. And then I go outside into the driveway where they’ve all been sleeping. And at first I don’t see the dog. And I think maybe the dog’s died and we don’t even know it. 

And then my sister and I go over and I find a little place where I’d kind of made a little blanket or something where I’d propped up the dog. Well, right before that I remember that I got on the bed they were all on, and one of the German shepherds that the guests had didn’t recognize me at first and grabbed my hand in his mouth. But then the dog seemed to recognize me and let go.

And then my sister and I go over to where we have placed my folk’s dog. My folk’s dog is really old and it’s almost like some of its body parts have fallen off; it can’t walk anymore. I go over though, and I place my hand on its chest and still can feel a little heartbeat. So I feel like it’s heart wants to beat until my mother, or my parents, come back. 

So it’s just waiting for that, even though it doesn’t have most of the rest of its body parts. So I just kind of am listening to his little heartbeat when I wake up. 

John: It’s a peculiar dream in terms of how its energetic motif is that of causing you to recognize your intertwinement with all these different parts of yourself.

You start off in your parents’ house where you’re trying to get yourself redeemed from whatever it is that still is a complex in some fashion that keeps you from being free. It is said that offspring have complexes in regards to their parents, because their parents, in terms of what they did to cause them to grow up, inadvertently created energetic effects – a type of spell, you might say, that affected, couldn’t help but affect, because in a roundabout way to the degree to which the parents are clean, the children become something of a reflection of them. And it can even reflect ill-quality mannerisms. 

Instead, the parents should be and are meant to see themselves and their children so that they leave the children free. But who can do that? And, simultaneously, this is passed on down. In other words, if a person has had an afflicted upbringing, they propound that affliction into the environment that they are in. 

Well, that’s the psychological way that it works. What you’re doing in your dream, that is a cute way of doing it, is you’re just kind of having to notice that you’re in all of these things. You can be in all of these parts in everything that is around you, then you could drop the personal kind of spellbinding me, myself, and I afflictions of things, because you then start pulling for an intertwined whole. 

So instead of sitting in a paradigm in which you’re an octave of your parents, and their wounded conditions that have created something that doesn’t have a life, leaves you not able to have a proper unfoldment. In other words, you’re not fully able to be in an overallness, you’re bifurcated in some fashion. 

What this then does is it takes the condition and it throws the condition into everything that you look at. In other words, if you go outside of the house, or outside from these conditions into a greater overallness, you will find other parts out there of yourself. 

The process of evolvement has a person growing up and then going out into the world on their own. So what they find is their friends, and you’ve done a double octave of friend, you have had the friend who is outside of the house, plus the friend’s dog, what you find as a friend or as a way of life for yourself outside is better than perhaps what it took for you to grow up. 

So that dog has more aliveness, so to speak, than the dog of your parents. However, that’s only because you’re under a type of spell. All of it is you, you took on a spell that was like buying into a misconception of what is actually going on, that you are able to, and are meant to be able to, relate to a greater overallness that is outside of your personal self. The dream indicates that you are recognizing the importance of this by the fact that you are noticing the heartbeat of the dog, the parents’ dog.

e82d58When we have a house in a dream, we can view ourselves as that house, a place with many rooms, and different levels, some under construction, some under repair, some neat and tidy, some worn and frayed. We are all of these things, and more. So, what goes on in these rooms?, and who is in them?, and what does it require to get there?, and what floor is it on?, are all questions that can be asked about our inner state after a dream such as this. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream, I seem to be in a house. It must be with my fiance, 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 in. 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 a kind of narrow hallway, and a doorway, and some rooms had been remodeled, that are even kind of ugly or need remodeling, yet, but haven’t been, and take them to where I can introduce them to my fiance’s parents and show them the rooms the parents stay – which are a little nicer rooms, more finished.

Because my mother’s come my family’s come, taking, I think, my mother, or my mother and my father, up to meet his parents. And when we do that, I have to take them through the rooms that we’ve kind of torn apart and haven’t really fixed up yet, to an upper level and around a corner to where his parents live.

And then there’s another part of the house where you feel like it might even be rented out, or belong to somebody else, that I haven’t explored yet. But I do take them to the nicer rooms, that have been fixed up for a while, where the parents live and where they will stay when they come for the night. That was the dream I had after you came to bed.

John: So, the ones that you’re taking a round are the parents. What do you think the parents represent, in this case? What do you think the fiance represents?

Jeane: Well, to me, sometimes the parents represent an energy that’s already settled.

John: Right.

Jeane: The fiance represents, it’s kind of a new energy, and we’re remodeling still, and we’re digging in at lower levels.

John: Right. I would say it in more of a masculine way by saying that the fiance 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, 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 was incorporating, and intertwining, was 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 you experience is not really grief, it’s having to adjust to 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. That’s what you’re at. In other words, you’re correcting, 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 a while 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, and that all over the place. And that’s why a person tends to hold to a singular note, is because they think they’re closer to a stillness that way, but, in this particular case, so much going on, things are speeding up. 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.

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.

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.

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.
