Jeane: I only remember the last part of my last dream, but all my dreams from last night seemed to have a lot of people in them.

In this very last image, I’m in a house. My mother is somewhere nearby and there’s also man there. At first I’m pretending to be asleep, but they want me to get involved in mixing up a sauce to baste a turkey. it’s a strange sauce – it has iodine in it.  

There’s a plucked turkey that they plan to slosh some sauce on, and then I’m supposed to use a baster to baste the turkey. I even put some of the sauce on with my hand.  

After doing this a few times, I notice that the turkey’s still alive. It’s craning its neck and looking at me doing this! I look at my mother and this man and say, “I can’t do this, the turkey is still alive.”  

They say, “Actually, the turkey is dead. It just doesn’t know it yet.” Then I say, “No, this is just too absurd for words. You have to do something about this.” 
I think that’s when I wake up.

John: The energetics in this scenario all represent bits and pieces of you that are picking up an overall change in life that you’re meant to embrace and maintain. Iodine, from our perception of its meaningfulness, is something that, in minute quantities, supports a balance and a flow – it supports overall health.

If we’re deficient in iodine, then in some regard part of us isn’t able to function quite as it’s meant to function. Minute quantities are needed for the overall (spatial) flow.

And the whole idea of basting has to do with taking and introducing an effect, or an influence, that comes through and touches Creation. Creation, in this instance, is like the turkey. What it represents is an illusion, but it’s an illusion that’s a reflection of change that’s occurring; a change that you initially act asleep toward.

When we pluck and baste a turkey, that’s a process of changing the state of something. And that’s indicative of the changes that humans are being asked to support (baste) in these current times. The idea that the turkey is still alive shows that the human desire to cling to the past and not accept change gives energy to aspects of life that are already dead, or over, from the perspective of Creation.

The outer world is something that we can identify with in terms of it having a particular realness that we perceive, which is correlated to how it’s been shaped by humans, as we process the onset of Creation energies.

The way things are, currently, is meant to change – it’s already changing. An entirely new note is onsetting, which will change our experience of the outer world. But we are part of that change because much of it must come through us; it must be processed into life by the human race.

Unfortunately, the new energetics coming in can also just be used to support the old, i.e., the plucked turkey is dead, but not everyone is acknowledging it yet. We’re still feeding the ways of the past rather than holding a space for the future.

So the human race finds itself in this in-between state. Yet our higher consciousness, or the higher self, recognizes the new order that’s coming through. We are meant to translate this change and bring it through us into life. Of course, when anything changes, whether individual or global, there are parts of us that still embrace, support, and cling to the old.

It’s like the physical world reports the old light for a long, long time before the actual change comes through, just like we can look up at the sky and still see light emitted from a star that might no longer exist; it might have died a long ago. So too it takes a while for the new changes to get established and reflected in the world we see.

John: Now, my inner take on the same theme as your dream presents the details of how something gets set in its nature. In your dream, you had a more overall sense, which is the feminine viewpoint (see Night of the Living Dead). Getting into the details is a masculine viewpoint dealing with the same territory.

In this dream I seem to be part of a system in which the status quo is maintained as the general way of living, the way that’s been accepted by the collective.

In other words, the status quo is seen by everyone to be the natural way of things – that’s the way life is. The collective flow is considered to be, and is recognized as, the path of least resistance. Everyone accepts this pattern and understands what is required of them.

The result is a world in which entrenched mannerisms predominate. To deviate from these social mores is seen as abnormal. I, however, see a different path because for me, the status quo, although casual and easygoing as a mannerism, is missing out on an important catalytic element in life. This is what I come to see as meaningful: some catalytic aspect of the natural flow that ushers in change.

The more general way of being has become, for me, an unconscious state that denies the need for change. I notice that my perspective has been blocked as an option by the collective opinion about how to live and to be.

To begin with, I see myself changing relative to the usual mannerisms, and I embrace this process. Over time this begins to dominate my perspective more and more. This is a state of being that’s developing a higher level of consciousness from everyone else, because everywhere I look people hold onto the established social order.  

But I’m excited by the changes, which are making my life more dynamic. The pattern by the collective has caused life to drift so far away from this natural dynamic of change that even the idea that change is a natural part of life is now deemed to be unacceptable.  

Because I know the importance of this inner flow and constant change, my perspective is becoming more and more out of place. I’m getting excited about the unknowable possibilities. In other words, because one is identifying it within and going with it, it’s unknowable in terms of the outer.  

I see the status quo in my dream as being a mannerism that’s being sustained by blind repetition. I see this pattern supported by the masses who visit the casinos in Vegas – it’s the backbone of their way of life.

Suddenly a shift occurs where I begin seeing the flow from a different perspective, and everything around me seems to lose its meaning. Yet within this pattern, I see an inner aliveness emerging. This aliveness is not apparent to the collective flow in the casino. You might say that what I’m seeing has a slow transformational effect, but it’s slowed in part because it receives no support from the outer world.

To the degree that this aliveness might be even slightly noticed by anyone, it’s seen as a discombobulating energetic. For me, I know this to be a shift that’s making its way into life, from the inner into the outer, and it’s largely invisible to the outer consciousness.

I can stare at it and be excited and surprised. The collective hasn’t a clue, although I believe this to be something the collective would like if they could accept and support it.  

In the end, the basic nature of the collective prevails in the dream, and the status quo is upheld. The world around me has chosen the path of least resistance.

John: When looking at the detail of this dream, the only conclusion I can draw is that I need more speed or energy, or I need more light, because with the weight of what’s unfolding I’m barely able to maintain. I’m not able to change anything because the condition is spiraling out of control.

In this dream I start off as a woman working as a waitress in a lodge. It’s family owned and I’m pretending to be part of the family. In other words, I’m a dead ringer for a woman who used to be there and was part of the family. Not even the regular patrons have noticed the difference.

There’s a kind of sadness to this place, i.e., things usually kept neatly are in disarray. For example, the wood in the fireplace is nearly depleted and no one’s able to replenish it. There’s just not enough energy; there’s of a sense of everyone being overburdened.

As a lookalike for the young lady, I’m able to move about freely. The family has become dependent on me because I have more energy while they’re barely coping. I tend to the guests.

There’s a particular guest, a man, who’s a little strange; he’s full of anxiety and neurosis. He comes in just to see me, unaware that I’m not the woman he remembers.  

He gets my attention and wants me to go with him to his car. He acts as if he wants to discuss something, so I give him the benefit of the doubt and I begrudgingly go along. I’m thinking that maybe I can snap him out of his indulgent ideas about me.  

But he’s being more deranged than usual. This time he wants to go to Walmart and sit in that parking lot to talk. I know that would be disastrous, plus I can’t leave because I’m working.  

In despair, he reminds me that I would have done this in the past. He thinks I should just get in the backseat. I know that would be giving in to his lower energy and his delusions. I realize they can’t be resolved.

In order to keep things from going to far, or be victimized, I instead get into the front passenger’s seat. He continues to insist that we go to this other parking lot, and that’s when I realize that it’s hopeless.  

This man isn’t interested in facing his issues. He just wants to indulge in an old pattern as if it will change something for the better. I feel his despair hit my heart; I know there’s nothing I can do. I tell him, “No,” and go back inside.  

This is when I realize that the lodge is in such bad energetic shape. I hadn’t paid attention before; I was just floating freely about. But I see that it’s my energy that’s attempting to make the difference – to lift things up. However, I realize it’s only a matter of time before the energetic emptiness will prevail, no matter my efforts.  

In other words, the lodge is set up to be a place that people can come to for relief, but the patrons aren’t quite on top of their game. I have the only energy that’s left and everyone else is too tired to offer any support.  

I also had an earlier dream in which I’m asked to pay attention to what some friends want me to see. It seems important, so I oblige them. I follow them and suddenly realize that they’re standing at the edge of a cliff.  

As I come up to the edge, I can tell that they’re collectively prepared to jump. I’m shocked that this is what they want me to see. I wake up from that image as a voice from somewhere in the ether says, “You didn’t see that coming did you?”

Both dreams are showing me that without catching up to the note in life that penetrates the condition you’re in, there’s an emptiness that has no meaning. Without that inner recognition, what touches me in the outer is filled with despair and confusion.

I can’t help the conditions (the lodge, the man, or the group on the cliff) and to think I can is a deception. The others don’t know quite what they’re looking for, but they’re responding to an aliveness in my nature that’s a relief to their worn-out energetic condition.

I think I’m okay, but the plight of others hits my heart, and I have to protect myself from being drained by the outer circumstances. If I go along, thinking I can clear the confusion, their approach will walk me right off a cliff.

In other words, I will fall into the same despair. So in the lodge, or in trying to relate to the confused man, the only thing that keeps me from being sucked in is this note I carry in my heart that can tell the energetic difference.

Try as I might I’m not able to get the energetic to come through so that something is able to change. All I can do is be firm in not being affected by the outer indulgences. In other words, I just can’t buy into them. I just turn away because I don’t want to give them any credence.

There’s a deeper meaning: I’m describing conditions in Creation (the outer world) that I have no solution for at this time. The only thing I have is a note inside that I hold onto in the face of all of this.

My old self would think I could make a difference and try to change things. But my new self knows that I hold a greater responsibility to try to build something, and change, from within.
