Drakmars_Event_HorizonHow does one access the future? That’s the territory explored in John’s dream. What the imagery shows is that we can’t come to the future with our set ideas and old patterns. We must keep ourselves open to it, and thereby let it have access into life through us. Anything else is just a replay of the past, which gets us nowhere. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Now, these dreams that are like this… I was looking at this a little. Dreams that are like this, because these are the kinds of dreams we’re having, actually give us more access.

In other words, they’re dreams that have the schematic of access that has been missing in earlier dreams, because earlier dreams just deal with the neurosis, and the psychological conditioning, and pattern that lies behind why we are the way we are, and react the way we react.

And we have our shadow reactions, and our doubles, and our blindsides, and it doesn’t get any deeper than that. But now the dreams are pointing out that there is another quality of access that we carry within, that we have caught up with, that is able to point its attention upon the situation. When before all we could do was denote it, complain about it a little bit, have it pointed out how it was a blindside and hopefully grasp and accept it.

But now the grasping and accepting has kind of like run its course. It’s complete in and of itself, that we’re not saying no, no, no, that we’re able to hear it, and we’re able to therefore do more than just watch it because we’re still too shook up or something and not able to hear it in a balanced and accepting way.

And because we’ve learned how to recognize that we can listen to it, and hear it, and come from a deeper center of our self, we find that we have the foundation within, the trust within, the connection within, the awareness within, to be able to contend with whatever the issue is – as opposed to being overwhelmed by it, or having to run from it, or anything like that.

And, therefore, whenever we take and we do something that takes us from intertwining with the overall, being a part of the Whole, from thinking that we can move away from something as opposed to take it all in, we come to recognize that we are shutting off, or annihilating, something that’s important in terms of the Whole, or in terms of God.

Now, that part that we’re annihilating, or shutting off, or cutting off, is a part that on one level when we had the chase dreams, and the running dreams, and stuff like that involved a lot of boring side effects and shadow dynamics. Now it’s having to turn and confront, and to face, and to carry, and to accept, and to absorb just about everything, and to be able to see that one can do that, and needs to do that, and that doing that actually strengthens you when before you had ample reason to run and hide and avoid because the shadow dynamics were confusing to you.

Now it’s like you know better or something and therefore you can allow yourself to be party to things that normally were too much for you in the past, but now are essential, as part of your greater wholeness.

Mine’s the same, except I have distinct ideas. In the dream, I’m presented with an awareness of this way of proceeding that goes along with a route that has been carefully researched in advance, because it’s like a type of journey or vacation or something that’s happening.

And of course I’m observing this because it’s this couple that’s going on this vacation, and what’s been established and decided is that this is the best way to take for the vacation. In other words, you can pull up the maps and visuals and whatnot. It’s all laid out. I’ve looked at the maps and directions too that have been set forth for them to proceed with, in terms of this vacation route.

The couple chose to take this vacation, it’s safe for them, because others point out that everything is predictable and so there’s an orderliness to it that keeps it common and safe. So, that’s the situation that’s presented to them, that’s what they’re supposed to enjoy, somehow or another, it’s something already precharged for them.

But in this particular situation now something has changed, and this couple are finding themselves having to scrap those ideas. This causes confusion for everybody that thinks that they, you know, because they’ve seen me, the maps and the route and everything, and so how are they going to keep up if this person isn’t abiding by the carefully laid social order and control of things?

They have to scrap it, which causes them to have to proceed with the vacation in which they are at the mercy of fate. As a consequence, instead of something that’s all laid out for them to which they have the maps, they now have to follow an inner guidance instead, because it’s no longer all predictable and visible to them, on a mental, straightforward way.

And so as a consequence, they even know that this is going to take them through a dense area that is not laid out, there’s no comfortability that they can lean on. But what’s interesting is the couple is able to accept the scenario as having changed, and act and conduct themselves in this spontaneous manner, because they also could sense the freedom in the heart of not having to comply with expectations.

But others of course are in a state of shock because they are now out of touch, or out of the loop, with this couple as they think they need to be in terms of control and contact and all of that, and so they are stuck in their conventional man-made technologies of how a person needs to be in terms of their idea of relatability, which takes the heart out of it.

Because I’ve been watching this, I have to look inside myself to see how I really feel about it and I recognize the freedom, which is priceless for those who can do what this couple is doing. So I do not chime in with my two bits, and am instead happy for the couple. They are able to embark upon a vacation that is totally fresh and without the orchestrated images of the past to have to contend with.

Now the meaning of this, and the purpose of the dream, is for me to compare or to correlate the creature comforts of a well laid out trip – which takes the spontaneous guidance of the heart out of the process – versus a vacation in which all of the layout is scrapped and the travel must contend with whatever lies before them in a spontaneous way. That even they must learn to accept and appreciate a challenge in space within.

Most people would find this to be too miserable. Most people need a predictability that is safe and mentally programmed, and this is a plan, and this is a traveling, and this is an approach that actually goes outside of a plan so to speak, because you’re following something not in an outer capacity, but more with an inner listening center.

The old way keeps a person from being able to appreciate the freedom that exists when the inner guidance of the heart is followed. And so this is a plan that’s thrown into that, which is something different and new according to what you’re accustomed to.

So I am compelled to look at the two options in order to distinguish them from each other and denote why it is that the path that is original and new, is more alive than the path that is well defined and controlling, thus the underlying basis for the dream.

So, then I have to take and look how that applies. In the outer I have situations that carry a frustration and confusion because I have ideas on how this needs to be, which now is also faced and confronted by activities that are fresh, because they are new and original.

So I’ve got the setness, and then I’ve got something that’s a change agent that’s going on. So I’m confronted with the challenge of abiding in the new frontier, as the past feels lifeless and energetically empty. The dream is intended to help me see, feel, and appreciate the distinctions, by connecting me to an inner flow that is distinct from my outer conditioning.

Force-Of-NatureIn this conversation between John and Ann, the territory of spiritual development is discussed. When one is on the spiritual path, the changes that occur on an inner, energetic, level begin to radiate outward. Other people may sense this new energy unconsciously, yet depending on their own openness, the energy can either awaken something in them, or it can cause an allergic reaction to the more potent processes at play. Navigating these changes can test of a person’s resolve to stay on the path. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Have you been having good energetics in the morning?

Ann: Oh my goodness yes. It’s just incredible. Last week when you mentioned the shift, oh my goodness.

John: The thing about the energetics that one has in the morning is: do you ever feel like you are getting too carried away, like you’re on speed, too animated about things?

What do you think about that when you get like that?

Ann: Sometimes I think: what is that all about?

John: Are you okay being like that?

Ann: Umm, for the most part, but when I catch myself being way too speeded up it’s like there’s sort of an in-between state there, but when I’m too speeded up sometimes I’m usually okay with it, but then sometimes I have to just sit and relax a little bit and bring the energy down a little bit.

John: What you’re doing is you’re pulling it down and grounding it, and when you’re speeding up what you’re doing is you’re tending to get a little bit transcendent, or out of body, with the soul.

And so when you get a little ungrounded or out of body with the soul you tend to… you have an energetic speed and effectiveness and it’s something that is intriguing to others, but it’s something that you have to be a little bit careful of because around people that are denser, or have a more limited world, or are stuck in the need of power and control, you’re apt to ruffle feathers very quickly.

Ann: And lately it’s like it’s really happening with people around; I’ve seen that.

John: That’s kind of why it’s said that you kind of get to a point, if you’re not grounding yourself and bringing it down, you’re going to get to kind of a point where you’re going to develop maybe new friends, and alienate the older ones that are used to you – because you can’t be like that anymore like you used to be.

Luckily, I think it’s slow enough, and subtle enough, that it’s generally not that dynamic a principle of being that harsh, and it’s more along the lines where one buys the belief or illusion, that in the speeded-up sense that you’re at, that you can communicate this across to others.

You can go on that treadmill for a long, long time, until you realize that people are just lilting in the energetic that you are carrying in a speeded-up way. They learn that they only create anxiety with themselves when they fight it.

They know that they can’t readily accept it as them, but they know it’s not untrue because their body tells them it feels okay. But what it does is, to the degree to which you’re affected and communicating like this, you’re stimulating the etheric and you’re stimulating the unconscious in them, and often times you can make their world miserable for them and not even realize it, because you quicken something before they’re ready to be quickened with it.

And yet how can you be any other way? Now the problem is, if you’re yourself, and you’re doing this, what generally happens is you tend to take it on yourself in a self-conscious way, and you figure oh, I have to tone it back, I have to deaden it, I have to go slower, I have to become a little… you need to cloud yourself a little bit, shut down the animation and the speed.

When you do that then you get poisoned, because now you’re agreeing to go along with the lowest common denominator, so that doesn’t quite work. And so what happens is you’re animated in the morning, and then you find yourself having to comport with the environment that you’re in, and by afternoon you can be a complete idiot again. And then every day it’s like that and then you sit there and you will say, why am I throwing away this energetic?

And you are throwing it away because you are feeling that to live this, you’re doing something unnatural – and yet you’re being your natural self.

Ann: Isn’t that interesting how that works?

John: When you are in an acuity like this, you often times have senses of things that may or may not be quite true, in terms of your understanding of say something scientific or something, but on an energetic level, it is true. That’s why there were things that the teacher used to say that weren’t exactly always true, but on an energetic level, the vibration that she was in, was entirely true.

That’s why there are stories that are told, like the training that Moses went through with Khidr, where Khidr did all kinds of things that were, from an outward perspective, really wrong, and yet on a vibrational level it was what was important. The outer appearance was not meaningful, nor the detail necessarily was not absolute in any regard. It was just kind of like something that lilts across in relationship to the space that you’re in.

But the space that you’re in is what is real and that’s what needs to be heard. So if the space you’re in is such that it violates the space of someone else who’s more nailed down in their being, then you’re going to create lots of commotion and turmoil.

Where you will make something dangerous for yourself is if you happen to confront somebody who is fearful, because in their fear they may then take whatever it is that you’re doing, without saying anything, treat it as the enemy, and start taking defensive postures against it so that they don’t have to face something in themselves that they’re not ready, or able, to face – and that is a kind of ignorance.

Generally speaking though they just walk away from you. Generally the people you know are good people and they just realize okay, okay, okay out of my politeness, meaning them talking to themselves, rather than get all worked up about it, which is what they would have to do because you have gone and you’ve tripped something in their unconscious; they’ll just get up and walk away.

That’s what this new energy, you’ve got to be careful with, because this new energy coming in lends itself to a way of alienating yourself from others, because you can so easily blow them away and you can maybe perhaps get to the idea, okay, this is the way I’m going to be, and then if you’re like that, then you’re a wrecking machine in terms of how others bounce away from you, or bounce off of you, and have to maintain their motif so as to not be penetrated.

It’s kind of similar, if you think, to the principle of how meditation works. It’s a little bit along those lines. When you first start meditating your meditations are miserable because it’s garbage that’s coming up – and more so than usual because you’re giving things permission to be like that.

So then when you reach a certain freedom, and you start exuding that freedom, on an energetic vibrational level, now you become a force of nature that is doing this to others, right out in the open, no meditation involved. You’re bringing something straightaway right into life.

So what happens is a lot of people then get to thinking that they have got to be a bit transcendent. Instead of bringing it down, they have to be more transcendent, and if you get more transcendent you can take yourself out of life, and you could become something that’s not relatable by others, because you are not finding the intertwined similitude that goes beyond the appearances of the physical.

You’re not submitting yourself to finding that, to touching that; paying the price of whatever that is. So the more you can be in the physical, the more grounded you can be, the more you can carry across this transcendent state, which is like the statement now of, feet on the ground head, in the heavens, or something.

You can actually marry those two states as a Oneness.

mountain-templeHere John describes a recent dream that shows him how the energy has shifted in 2013. In it, he is faced with climbing a steep mountain, but in three phases. At the end of the first phase, he finds a reprieve – a resting point. What’s next is not clear, but what is clear is that the time of a spiritual seeker dwelling in their own psychologies is over. Now is the time to let go of all that and just be with the energy, letting it show the way forward. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)


John: The other thing that happened a little while back, was this is the dream I told the dream group that had them walking out on me.

I’m standing in some place off to one side, and then I’m looking or sensing more than what I’m seeing in terms of a certain something, like a hill or a mountain rather, that I have to scale to the top of, I have to go to the top of.

Well, I don’t look at the process that’s involved to getting to the top. I just automatically assume I’m just going to zip right up there. And so to go there I have to walk through this lodge that’s between that and this mountain.

My attention is only on the top. My attention is not upon anything else. I walk through this lodge, go out the side door. I don’t see a soul in this lodge. This lodge is somebody’s place and I just walk in, and stroll in and pay no attention, don’t say hi to anybody, and walk out the door.

That’s pretty rude. Yet that’s what I do, and when I walk out the side, it’s like there‘s not even a proper sidewalk there. I’m just walking off on my own, and who should come out behind me but the owner of the lodge.

He’s kind of an older guy, and he has a little limp about him, and he quickly determines what I’m doing and he says, “Oh, nobody, nobody ever goes up there, but you can climb this.” And right in front of me is this mountain that’s straight up and down. “Oh, you can climb this. You can climb this part, but you can’t go way up there.”  

So I look at this and if it was just me on my own, I would have turned around and left straightaway. I’m not going to climb that. That’s straight up and down. Finger holes is all you have got. I can’t do that.  

Then all of a sudden, around him, a whole bunch of other people must come out of the lodge, because all of a sudden he starts climbing with these other people. And so I guess I’m caught in the swim of things, so I start climbing. I don’t dare look down; I might slip or scare myself.  

As I’m going up, it gets easier. I can reach around a corner or something. It’s still like a crevice that’s going up, and at one particular point I even see myself going through where there are some blankets and kind of a little encampment near the top that this woman had, and my attitude at the time was: she’s in my way. I mean, can’t she see I’m struggling to climb this thing and she has got shit in my way?

But she was very kind and very nice and very accommodating. She didn’t hold my attitude out against me, so just a little beyond that is the top, and when I’m about to pull myself to the top of this first phase, the son of the owner is standing there and I think he’s going to kick me over, not let me climb to the top because he’s still a little peeved over my attitude of just walking through this lodge like this.

I climb up to the top, and I’m kind of shocked. What I see around is a number of people, old ladies and things like that, and I wonder, oh my gosh, they made it? There’s a little town up there, and at first I think it’s a ghost town. The name of the town is Stickler.

So the guide, or the owner of the lodge, he comes up to me you know, and he starts to explain things to me. I mean he steps away from the others because this is kind of a reprieve. We’re going to spend the night here and it kind of levels out at this particular point, and then there’s another stretch that one makes that he obviously will be guiding people up that, and then that final one third nobody goes there – which means you’re on your own.

And so that’s where the dream ends. I know that I’m at a reprieve. I know that where it started, I would have said hell no, and if it had been something I would have looked at just on my own.

But I actually started climbing up because I was invited to climb with him. All these other people were climbing. All he said to me is you can climb this stretch, you can climb this part, and nobody goes up there.

And so because all these others, old ladies and everything else are climbing this, well golly gee I guess if they can do it, I can do it. I saw the last to get to the top however of this first stretch wherever there was the reprieve, and it leveled out, and the town of Stickler was, knowing that that phase was done. Well, what was this phase?

This phase was the phase in which you had to contend with all of the personal peculiarities of your nature. My attitude and mood at this woman, having the rude audacity to put her stuff in my way. Now can’t she see that I’m struggling like heck to climb this thing, and now she has her stuff in my way?

Then that rude little personal attitude that I had put on, that part’s still reflecting on me like I’m going to get kicked over the edge. But then when I’m up there, I have to drop all of that. I have to drop all that.

That was just the first phase. Then there’s the next phase, and then after that you go where no one goes.

How do I understand the dream? Well, gee. It’s almost like somebody lied to me, is my first impression. You know if I didn’t know it was going to be like this, if I’d have been looking at this like this straightaway at the beginning, but I ended up going along because other people seemed to be able to do it, so I mean if they can do it, I can do it or something.

If the guide hadn’t jumped out of the lodge, and I would have been standing there looking at it on my own because it wasn’t until he arrived there and I started talking to him, and then I glanced and there was the mountain right there. If I had to look at it straightaway all on my own, I would have said, no way. No way.

I guess I have this completely mixed up. I can’t go to that top that I can sense because there’s no way I can do this first step even. But he says I can do it. You can climb this and then here is all these people and they just start climbing with him.

In one sense, I guess I got lied to, didn’t I? Well, the next question is, am I still being lied to when there’s that other part where nobody goes? Is that another lie? And yet you know that that’s the process.

And so the dream group wants to know what this means, and I’m saying, well the energy has changed, you know, this is the new energy. You no longer sit there and noodle around and dwell upon the minutia of shadow and all of that stuff. You don’t keep digging into the depths of yourself. It’s reached a point where that phase is over with.

Now you have to get on with the program. I can’t tell you what that next phase is because I’m just at the town of Stickler at this point. I said this is a dream that’s a little bit like a station, and that’s my station.

Of course they were asking all these questions about it, and some of these questions were really astute. And the ones who were asking these questions that were really astute were the type of people that you wouldn’t expect to ask the questions, and the ones that were trying to put it into some sort of compartment or parameter in relationship to how you interpret this stuff symbolically were completely lost.

It was nauseating for them. And some of them had to get up and leave. I’ve noticed people struggle before, and it’s caused me to be a little reluctant to tell any dreams because then I notice that it can disturb too. It’s like it burns a little too brightly for them or something.

But this is the first time I’ve seen people actually having to overtly leave just because it tore away at them too much. Now there were a couple that are on the edge, and these people that are on the edge are the ones that work catalytically, and the way I described that to somebody was there is one time when I don’t meditate, one night out of the week that I don’t meditate, and that’s when I go to the dream group.

The reason why I don’t meditate that night is it’s so easy to put yourself into a particular manneristic or motif and maybe be too transcendent from what occurred in the dream group.

And what I’ve noticed is that it used to be when I would go to the dream group, the dream group, potency and power of that dream group used to throw me outside of the space that I would find myself in – and I consider that good that that happened, but not at the time that it happened did I feel that that was good.

I just felt like I got twisted and contorted and sometimes I would be out of whack the next morning, and maybe it would take two or three days, and then I would get it, and then something would shift and fast forward and push me along and that got me outside of the shadows of my own spiritual illusion.

And so now the tables are turned. I did that. I’m okay with the dream group now. I go back and I dream what really took place and was going on. I get shown something really quickly now. And now I guess I have the audacity to expect them to do the same, and are they doing it? Nope.

If you don’t give them the water with the right amount of sugar in it, it’s just not drinkable. And what’s different about it is because I recognize it as being something in the new motif of things in the Whole, to the degree to which I personally identify with it, then I suffer for having done that, but to the degree to which I tweak something that is meant to get it and evolve, I’m just fine. I’m just fine. There’s a fine line here.

Is it because I’m drinking my own water exclusively, or is it I’m fine because I really am taking on the new energy and being true to it? You never know for sure what little component portion still is in a state of illusion, spiritual illusion, but I’m finding this quality and to the degree that is a portion in that spiritual illusion you will suffer for it at some point in time.

Because the subtler the spiritual illusion the harder it is to catch up with, and to live it through, and that’s the schematic that I have to contend with.

In other words, it’s a different way of orientation. It’s not the orientation to the usual shadow dynamics that everybody else is contending with, where you go around and around and around and around and you feel like you grasp something, and I watch people and they look like they kind of grasp something, but I realize yes, but they also twisted it a little, too.

It’s always about something so much more. And we just are so horrible in that we want to always make it about some little octave of our self. You know whatever you’re having to say is still, it’s your own water that you’re throwing out there. It’s your own veils that you are talking from, and that you’re keeping nailed down by doing it that way, too. Instead of letting it go.
