Posts Tagged ‘snow in a dream’

In this dream, we see a series of images that involve a type of displacement, or dislocation. And, after a rejection – an emotional hurt – the fire alarm goes off and the dreamer is trying to reconnect a part of herself with the precious jewelry that has been left behind in the mayhem. These images show how energetics reverberate within us, causing collateral issues on multiple fronts. Not only can they make us aware of what is unfolding, but we can also get a sense of whether our internal responses are soothing or escalating the issue.

Jeane: In the beginning of my dream, it almost felt like I was traveling on a train, but the train must have come to a stop, and there’s a group of us that are staying in these, almost feels like motel rooms, like all on one level or something.

Initially, I’m with a man that I like. And I almost have kind of a ritualistic way of, I don’t know, walking about the room, or a way I lay down, or a way I place things, but it feels like the man gets up and he’s actually rejecting, which makes me feel badly and I leave. 

And it’s like I try, then, to put together in my own mind, like, am I doing the ritual, right? Or am I doing whatever I’m doing right? Just in how I move about the room, or what I do there, and will that bring him back, or not? 

But after a while, I have to kind of just let go of that thought, do the best I can. I go out the door and I go down the hall. I realize that there’s a man and a woman that were group leaders or seminar leaders that are somewhere around – I don’t entirely trust them, but it feels like people go to them because they’re in charge of things. 

And I’m walking down towards there, where they are. Then it’s like a fire alarm or something goes off and I see somebody who’s jumped up out of bed, who must have been asleep, and rushed out the door and ran down the hall. 

And I look in and I realize that they must have taken their jewelry off right before they went to sleep and had laid it right next to the bed – and they had like some emerald earrings, and some gold, and like five or six pieces of jewelry. And so I pick up the emerald earrings and some of the gold and wrap it up in a napkin to take with me because I don’t want to just leave it laying there on the floor, I want to find the person and give it to them, because I realize they were just disoriented. 

Then I continue on down the corridor. At one point, I run into the woman who’s the head of the group and we seem to have a brief conversation, like she wants me to join them where they are. And then I’ve gone outside, and I realize that there’s this tremendous snow covering the ground. And even the water nearby is frozen over. 

And the man that’s the seminar leader now has joined me and we’re walking a bit like he’s talking. I’m more preoccupied with just studying the landscape, I’m supposed to be a part of the group, I’m supposed to even be kind of interested in how these people that lead balance you out or something, but I’m actually fairly distant. I’m more preoccupied with studying the landscape, or even keeping a certain distance, but I also seem to just be keeping in motion.

That’s all I remember of the dream.

John: It’s a dream that requires something about yourself that has to be kept, maintained, on a pedestal in order for something to actually work, otherwise you get splayed out, or disjangled.

In other words, it’s like you can’t establish something like that by trying to hold on, or cling, in some fashion because that, as an energetic, keeps you from seeing what it is that you already own. That is already yours; causes it to stay in a displacement. 

The scenario that must be triggering something like this, is your noting a commodious imbalance in the atmosphere. A part of yourself is listening to a greater flow, and knowing that you hold that flow, and that flow actually has, in its deep echo within, a very impersonal echo to it. The problem is that in the appearances in the outer there are, in the atmosphere, what appears to be a discombobulation that has to do with personal misalignment.

Luce di Ninfa

We all have fears about facing inner traumas, or defusing defense mechanisms, that we have used in our lives as survival strategies. Yet we also know that, at some point, they limit us more than they protect us. This dream shows the process of facing fears from the past and, not surprisingly, the only safe way to do this is from an inner place, an inner connection, rather than an external process. What begins as a scary beast is soothed and, ultimately, goes away. And while it may always sleep in the shadows, its power over a person is forever lessened. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: What I remember about my first dream is it feels like it’s nighttime, and I’m going back and forth from somewhere to where I live, through the snow, in a car to someplace where there’s a little store. And then it feels like I’ve parked the car, and at some point I’m not able to go back because of either the snow or where my car is.

And at that point the dream shifts, and I find myself in this whole other reality. And it’s a reality where there’s some other people and someone who’s like, I don’t know what you’d call her, she’s kind of like a witch doctor or something like that, and she has this strange beast in a way, or animal, that the other people that have come there to be there are almost intimidated by, or have to approach.

It’s something huge with wings, and there’s kind of an approach, following whatever she tells us to do and approaching and backing away from this creature, except at some point I realize that I’m actually familiar with the creature and that the other people might be intimidated by it, but I actually pick up these little, I have like four little pieces of stiffened paper or something. I actually pick up a couple of them and I go up and I start cleaning its teeth for it.

And I can tell that feels real good. Most people are afraid to touch its teeth, it’s a pretty big animal. After I’ve cleaned its teeth, I’ve dropped two of the pieces of paper and then I’d realize I need to leave them behind. And the woman who’s in charge is suddenly starting to shoo everybody away, and giving them the time when they need to come back.

But I realize that when they come back, she and the beast will no longer be there; that’s part of the training or whatever is going on. It’s like somehow I know this from before. So I go out into the other room and I’m putting on some shoes. At first I seem to have too many pairs of shoes there, but I have to sort myself out and not get confused and put on boots, because I realize that I’ll be going back out now to where the snow is, as opposed to like this jungle setting, and that my car may or may not be there.

I don’t know if I’m going to have to walk the ways home or if my car will be there and I’ll be able to drive home, so I have to be careful to put on some boots. That’s the whole dream.

John: The first part of the dream has you going kind of like through a purity, back to yourself, or your home, kind of like an in-breath. When you do that, you don’t necessarily remember how to go back to where you had been. You’ve kind of been swept into a type of unconsciousness, but it’s an inner consciousness, an outer unconsciousness and inner consciousness in terms of going to a depth of yourself.

You can’t take the car back into the outer in the way that you had before, because you’ve gone into this other space, and in this other space within a depth inside of yourself you awaken something that you have to contend with and, in facing that, in other words it kind of comes up from having reached an inner depth inside of yourself, this becomes something you have to now contend with. And in contending with that, you free yourself back up to where you are able to flow back and forth perhaps again.

So whatever it is that you confront is a little like a trauma, in that a trauma holds one, overwhelms a person, so that they cannot move or flow. And this is like something that you came into an awareness of from having gone to an inner depth inside yourself. And if you face this trauma properly, you’ll be able to then be more viable when you go back out into the outer. In other words, the trauma is creating a veil over your ability to free flow perceptively in the outer.

I couldn’t really remember the scenario of the dream. I just picked up on the energetic vibration in terms of what you were doing. First one had to catch the direction you were going in, and that was determined by the first part of the dream where you’re going back into an inner depth of yourself. And once that was recognized, then one was able to see that in doing that you were awakening, or coming to grips with, something that had been repressed.

And in coming to grips with that, it no longer had its hold on you like it normally does. And so it became something like familiar to you, in terms of something that you could absorb, or deal with, as an energy, instead of as a trauma. And as you developed a rapport, or balance, in terms of integrating that into yourself, as part of yourself, because now it was something that you were able to face, you’re then able to go back into the outer.

So, the theme of the dreaming last night had to do with the idea of functioning in ways that… first of all, there’s one component and that component is that you can be functioning in a way that does not necessarily make sense to how you perceive yourself. And yet that is important to be able to relate in that capacity.

And that’s what you’re doing in this dream, is you’re functioning in a way that you normally don’t relate to yourself, in that you are going into an inner depth inside of yourself and facing something that is a restriction to how it is that you’re able to be and, in overcoming that restriction, you’re able to then be able to function in the inner – as opposed to trying to function in the outer. If you function in the outer, you will be functioning in the outer in a way that, from the standpoint of the inner, isn’t quite right.

You’re finding the inner awareness that’s necessary so that you can then function without fear, or qualm, or stigma, or whatever with a certain kind of openness in your being, a connectiveness in your being, so that you can then go back into life with that. That’s one aspect of the theme of the dreaming.

The other aspect has to do with what one does to veil themselves, and the veiling of yourself is this kind of trauma thing that you hadn’t faced until you went through the snow into the home, went through the purity back to the inner part of yourself. Until you faced that, that was a veil, and what is that veil like? Well, when you go to a home, back to yourself, things get brighter and brighter. In other words, you develop a clarity that is necessary to then be able to go out into the outer in which that clarity will be, that light will become, to the point where if it’s out of the ballpark so to speak, if it’s still not within the realms of a certain innerness that you’re holding onto, it will get to a point where it will disappear. When it’s still within the ballpark of things, it can become very infinitesimal but still a teeny, teeny flicker.

So, the theme of the dreaming has to do with three component parts. The one part is functioning in a way that kind of defies the way you perceive and see yourself, and that’s what you’re doing where you’re functioning towards the inner to face something, as opposed to the way you tend to see yourself and function, which is in the outer.

So you have a contrast there going on according to outer versus inner. The second is then you come to realize that which you do that creates the veil which you can take down. You’re actually taking that veil down by facing yourself.

And the third is that if you were to have functioned without doing that, and continued in the outer, and didn’t face that, then the light would become less and less in terms of your clarity. So that’s the effect of the theme, and then you had the image of doing it, but you were doing it with an in-breath. And the reason why I say it was with an in-breath, as an in-breath kind of vibrational effect, is because you went to a home, you went to a place where you saw something, are able to face something, that you normally don’t face when you’re caught up in just the outer mannerism. But by not confronting, and not facing, that you don’t function very well in the outer.

Go-with-the-flowIn these two dream images, Jeane is faced with a conundrum: how does one hold on to the Wholeness, and yet be able to deal with the specifics of life? One way to think about that question is to realize that when we react to the flow of life in a personal way, it shuts us off from the Whole. That leaves us only in the specific. It is better to not have a personal reaction, but to see the specific from the viewpoint of the Whole. Of course, that’s easier said than done.

(At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just pulled out little bits of each dream, but they all seem to refer back to each other. It feels like in the very earliest dream, I work somewhere where whatever they want to have you do, it’s like the highest educated people do something, and it feels like very linear to me like it would fit into a tall rectangle and maybe involve radiation. 

And that’s what they actually choose in terms of resolving the situation. And then the people that are the most educated are the ones who do it. But I’m convinced that actually that approach is wrong, that it’s better to take another approach that’s less drastic, and that it produces better results in the long run. 

Although they usually have the less educated people doing it, I have more faith in it, and so it feels like there’s an argument going on about that.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night had to do with reaction action. In other words, what is typical, what is the response, what is the mannerism that comes up when you’re affected in a particular way.

You’re using something as a dramatic in the outer, in which the outer is affected in some inner way through your image. Now, there’s an accepted way, or common way that sophisticated people are then doing this in their reaction. They have a way of contending with it in which there is a manner that’s defined.

And what you’re doing is you’re seeing, somehow, that there is a more natural way, or that there is something else that is another way upon which the situation can be dealt with. And you’re finding that this is how it is done in the most common way, right?

Now, what’s interesting is I’m not sure how you’re using the word common. In other words, it’s like I think you’re differentiating between specific versus overall. And a specific way would have one take and go and deal with something in a linear capacity, that’s defined, that not everyone has the means upon which to do that.

But that is actually an abstraction from the Whole, and that the Whole has to do with not reacting, and taking everything that happens as having a greater meaningfulness, and being able to accept and absorb that for what it is. And that’s what the average person is actually doing at a greater depth inside themselves, is they’re finding that they are designed to simply let go, to be there.

What’s happening is, you’re taking and you’re throwing yourself into this contrast. The natural way of taking and letting everything go is being suggested. In other words, to go with what is in the flow of evolving as opposed to fighting it, which is what everybody does when they take and they react to outer conditions is that they’re actually fighting a natural overall flow.

You’re being told, in a way, that this is no different. You’re fighting an overall flow by responding. That’s almost baffling. It’s hard to believe.

Jeane: As the dream goes on, you and I have to go somewhere. We have a new car and it’s a black car and it has got kind of that big roof like the old Buicks had. Do you know what I mean? It’s kind of a big old car. 

We haven’t really driven it before, and we’re going out at night and there’s snow on the ground, and there’s also something like I can see almost like a roadblock across the road up ahead, and we have to kind of negotiate in this tricky way on the snow, go through what almost looks like there’s something across the road. 

So there’s only a small section through which you can cross, and our battery must die and our lights go out. Well, I’m trying to do something to fix this, but I keep finding myself in the backseat with the seatbelt on in the dark, not the place from which to steer the car.

So I almost have to make this huge effort to actually get in the front seat. I must figure out something that makes the light come on very briefly, but it’s dimmer than it was before, so we have to get across to this little Chevron station and little shopping center I see across a little river. 

There must be a bridge. Well, you start to drive for a few minutes, but then you take us to an area with a little road that just leads on the snow out to this barge, and then we’d be stuck on the river. So then I have to drive again, and I get us over to the little town. 

I’m pretty sure it’s the battery. I think I want to go in and buy a battery, but the first place I go to with someone, and it doesn’t even seem to be you right now, the store seems to think that I want to use credit to get this battery, and credit doesn’t work anymore – they just laugh at me.

So I leave the store and I do something where I actually come back; I don’t know what it was I did. I must have just gone somewhere else and I figured out how to get what I needed, because I come back and this time I have something I can trade with, or that I can use to get what I need, and then I’m going to go to the little Chevron station.

But I know we still have to make it home in this car we haven’t tried out that well yet, so I don’t know if it’s going to make it or not.

John: It’s a dream where one drifts a lot. You lose your ability to see because you’re letting your energy go down. For whatever particular reason your energy has gone down, and the black car is something that drives in a state of Wholeness, or emptiness, or grace – because it’s white out – but the black car is driving in the snow, or driving in the whiteness.

In other words, it’s the part of one’s self that’s making the journey, that goes out into the Wholeness, or the overallness. But in this particular case, you’re being told that the energetic, the electrical, the part that keeps you fired up, that keeps you quickened in terms of making this journey, is out of energy. It’s shorting out, or the lights are going out.

Because what you’re showing as the solution is you have to adopt, or reach, a particular aspect of your masculine nature, where you take a responsibility for yourself. You can’t stay back in a safe zone. What can be accomplished if the car can’t go, and the lights are out – what good is sitting in the backseat all buckled in?

You realize that you have to move towards the issue. Going along for the ride, that isn’t acceptable. You have to plug yourself in, or be engaged, or come directly to the situation, to confront or deal with the situation, to no longer ignore it.

Sitting in the backseat all buckled in is kind of like ignoring it, assuming that the black vehicle can just kind of keep moving along. But you realize that something needs to be done, because in the Wholeness that it’s in, it’s not holding up. It’s not able to maintain itself as a microcosmic flow. It is losing its juice.

And so maybe the difference is that you’re not direct enough with yourself to what is at hand, so you put yourself into the driver’s seat, which is more masculine now as opposed to subjective and feminine.

And in doing so, of course, this leads to collateral damage, because when you take and you do something like that you actually are taking and doing something that’s coming out of a letting go, and going into a state of compaction. In other words, bringing through and functioning in a very specific way within the Wholeness, and that’s a microcosmic motion in the Wholeness.

Because the second dream is responding to the first dream. In other words, the first dream is proposing a naturalness, that in its simplicity is the better way of going, in a general overall sense.

And then the second dream is like saying, except, but, and points out a scenario where the vehicle, which is driving in the state of grace, is no longer able to maintain itself, its energetic, and is thus impacted.

Sitting in the backseat, in a general overall nature, buckled in and going along for the ride, is the same thing as being able to reach and use what you would consider credit cards, or whatever, that have an unlimited depth to them, that more or less have a quality about them that’s able to take into account what is needed.

You just put it on the card, so to speak, but you’re not allowed to just put it on the card, and you’re required to have to drive the car. What you’re doing is you’re contrasting two states of energy.

You’re contrasting the state of energy that has to do with a natural overallness, in which things are all in their place, so to speak, because what people do to try to establish an edge or an upper hand over things when they react, when there’s a reaction to be had, what they do is not the preferable way of being.

It’s better to be able to sit in this natural overallness. However, there can be a point in time, in which in this natural overallness, the vehicle has some problem in terms of keeping its energy right. It’s shorting out. It’s not able to make the journey like it used to make the journey, and you have to take more responsibility, with a kind of focus, when it’s like that.

But at the same time, you can’t forget the first dream. You can’t forget the first dream where you still have to recognize that there’s a greater natural overallness that’s going on at the same time, – you have to work with both.

And so the second dream is there to kind of tell you that, yes, there is this general way, the superior overall way of being. However, in the microcosm of things, you’re required to also be attentive to what is affecting you in the environment. But your attention has to be such that you deal with it specifically, but still do not lose the overallness that is your greater being.

You have to have both. You have to sustain both. It doesn’t talk about depth or anything. It just talks about flow and reaction to flow. Maybe it doesn’t deal with the depth because it’s the masculine that has to probe itself more deeply to take responsibility for what it brings through, as its ideas and thoughts and whatnot, and the feminine just has to be receptive to it, and know by the feel of it, and the sense of it, what’s meant to be, and what’s not meant to be, in terms of how it fills, or fulfills, something.

You’re faced with a conundrum. You’re working with an inner note inside yourself. You can’t dismiss it. You can’t totally dismiss that note as unimportant, and you can’t be too literal with it either.

In that regard, you’re going to extremes. You’re going to a certain depth or density with what is reactive and throwing you asunder. I don’t know whether you would call that a depth, or spin, and then, on the other hand, you’re having to hold onto a cadence of the overallness for the greater sanity of it all.

I guess that’s probably describing what you’re going through. I keep sitting there looking at it from the standpoint that, is it trying to tell you something? I’m always looking at things as if they are teaching dreams, too. Is it trying to direct you, or guide you, in some particular way?

I guess, with that in mind, what it is doing more than anything else is having you pay attention to both equations simultaneously. It’s unacceptable for you to try to take care of yourself via reaction, when you have this general overallness as a responsibility, and it’s unacceptable for you to stay in the general overallness, as well, when something specific is at hand, so, thus, you have this conundrum.

They kind of run at odds to each other, but do they? One is kind of an inner, and one is kind of an outer. One is kind of at a depth of going up, and the other is kind of at a quality of going down into the depths of one’s self. Do they run counter? Actually they fit together like a pea in the pod, but it takes a bit to recognize that you’re having that kind of expansive depth.
