The Offshoot

120tairsIt is fundamental to our lives, and to our growth, that we stay open and keep evolving all of our days. The universe follows the rule of grow or die; when something no longer is evolving, changing, or adapting to its world, it begins a decline toward its end. In everyday life we may complete many things and move on, but we ourselves should always feel unfinished, interested in new possibilities, and seek ways to learn and grow.

John: So then I have this dream, which is a little bit like you in your dream. In this dream, what is going on is like an R&D project, in other words, kind of a type of researching to figure something out, only in the dream the experiment is in trying to put together a menu that everyone likes.

In the dream, my role is that of kind of an advisor. In other words, I don’t do this, I’m just kind of like a type of advisor, in that I am concerned about the way the food is being prepared, but I’m not the one that’s preparing it.

So the final item, in other words the final food item, in other words the day is coming to a close of which there are many more days, and I know that there’s many more days, but the final item for the day, before it is ended, in which it will have to be continued in terms of the unfoldment process, involves a sandwich that is like a French dip, except that it’s more like a rib inside the bun – that has the bone in it. So I wake up saying, no au jus for the sandwich? I mean, because it’s a French dip kind of sandwich.

What has happened is this is a process which has unfolded up to a point where what was put together is out there. It’s out there, it’s all laying out there, but from an offshoot of the menu. Because I am kind of like the advisor, or the sampler, they hand me this thing to eat; but over off to the right, they have this other going on.

This is a reflection, but not the actual of what’s going on over on the far right. This is like a communication gap, but it’s a reflection of the reflection. That’s what I mean it’s an offshoot of the menu; an offshoot of the menu that they’re working with, is this sandwich for my review. The decision has already been made. In other words, they’ve got this over here, but, now of course, they’re offering this other as if they’ll get some sort of feedback, confirmation, opinion. But that decision has been made.

And so what is presented to me is, well, what would you call it? A type of offshoot or appetizer, or whatever, to see if I buy it. I’m not given all the information, in other words. I’m not given the full deal. And I could tell what they’re doing over there they’re hunkered down on that. And I’m still not satisfied. I’m still working on it. That’s good enough for today, maybe, but that’s just the beginning.

So my feeling in the dream is, it is a start, with more to go in what is presented as an outer project, to know, or realize. What they are assuming, I can’t accept. So, what is this? Why this interest? Why this interest to get to this in any in-depth way? What I am describing is the trait of getting to the bottom of what is going on in a scenario.

Why am I doing this? I seem to be a systems person needing to see an end result that is satisfying. The challenge expressed in this dream involves an inclusiveness that is relevant. For that to be, there is a sense of completeness that is needed – and I do not settle for abstractions of a process that is incomplete, even though there’s the sense that it is complete. No, it’s incomplete. To do so, is to accept a reflection of a reflection – meaning the main food, deemed okay, isn’t, when that which is reflected requires more work. I can tell from what is reflected that it requires more work, even though I barely have a sense of what the main food’s about.

i00998This dream image is a good example of the different lives within us, as the dreamer is with three different aspects of her self – seen as three people – and is trying to manage the situation even though they each have their own agenda. But what is important to see is that the specific agendas that different parts of us are focused on can prevent us from getting the knowledge we are seeking – even when it is right there in the room with us. This happens because where there is a personal agenda in one part of us, our higher parts can get disconnected from the universal guidance. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the first dream that I remember, it feels like I’m with two other young women my age, because I’m younger in the dream. And, initially, we’re doing something and this seems to be something that has to do with a pattern of breathing. And maybe even a little ritual about that. Something that we do before.

And we develop this little ritual, or whatever it is that we do, that’s also linked into our breathing. And it feels like, initially, that I initiate a relationship with one of the young women, but she rebuffs that after a short period of time.

And so all three of us go and we seem to be camping out in the living room of my parents. Although I think of it more of my mother’s house in the dream And the one that has kind of rebuffed have being in a relationship with either of us seems to have her own little place that she sleeps behind a screen.

The other woman I’m with, or the other young lady I’m with, in order to deal with the loneliness that she creates, or feels, goes out and gets a couple of puppies and creates a nest for them in the middle of the living room.

We’re all in the same room, but there’s a little bit more of a divider between us now. And we’re all continuing with the breathing pattern, although I seem to have a few doubts about it. So as we watch this pattern, and I kind of feel what’s going on, I feel like something’s not quite doing whatever I want it to have.

I look at the fact that there’s been a slight rebuff from one of them, I looked at the fact that the other one’s gone and gotten puppies, but now that it’s getting more towards morning, the puppies are getting active and they’re peeing on the floor. And she lets them up on the couch, and they’re going to pee on the couch, too.

So I’ve gotten something and I’m trying to clean up after them, and it’s like she didn’t have a clue that this was going to start occurring when the puppies woke up. So I’m getting her to help clean up, because she was a little in shock at all this, and try to get the puppies to stay on their bedding.

Then. in this process of cleaning up, and I’m looking and questioning whether this ritual we go through with how you breathe, or a pattern that you have before breathing, it’s working or not, I seem to look through one wall which becomes more just a veil – I can see through, and even go through.

And on the other side is like a Middle Eastern scene. There’s some women sitting on ground, and then there’s an older woman who seems to have some kind of knowledge. And it’s as though I cross through that veil for a minute and I go to where she is, as though I feel like she knows something. And I know her. At the same time we no longer speak the same language, but it feels as though I go to her where she’s sitting, then there’s something that she does, or has, that I’m familiar with. But then I need to come back because it’s like we no longer speak the same language.

John: So this other place that you go, that is kind of a new place that you can now see from the room, or whatever it is that’s part of your heritage, or mother’s house, this other place is where something very, very interesting and expansive has opened up – but when you go there you can’t speak the language anymore anymore, the memory is lost.

Wow, that’s a pretty deep dream. So you started out as three, and what you’re doing is you’re dealing with parts; the energetic is broken into components in terms of awakening, or coming to know or realize something. So it’s a dream in which all of the components are engaged in the process. But in terms of how they’re intertwined, and, how this intertwinement rises up to the next threshold of awakening, is kind of the subject at play here, because something now more needs to occur in terms of a change, or an awakening.

The key part of yourself, the loud part of yourself, the main part of yourself is holding what you think you know and understand and you’re holding it in the presence of an awareness that’s opened a place, so to speak, a presence, so to speak, that has opened for you, in relationship to being in your mother’s house.

So that’s kind of like, that’s where you’re at. I mean, that’s pretty good. You’re starting right there. Then you have another part of yourself that’s a little more independent, that goes around the veil, but still has enough sense to hold into the spaciality presence of the area. And then the other part that stays within proximity, but has to lean on something in order to to be comfortable; in other words it has the puppies and whatnot. And what it leans on, it’s being forced to have to look at, because what it’s leaning on, it’s realizing that there is an acting up that happens by having to lean on something, or be a bit dependent on something.

In other words, there’s still hold-out quality to where that part thinks that it needs something and, and that which thinks that it still needs, acts up; it pees and makes a mess of things, kind of discombobulates things.

So those three parts are catalytic, and that catalytic quality then sets in motion a change, whereby something more can be brought in. So initially when there’s something more brought in it’s like you go from that which is pretty advanced, and now is like a limitation. And that something more now needs to be grasped, or taken in. And suddenly you see through that, into a whole new area.

You’re still getting closer and closer to a one beingness, or a wholeness, but in that process, in that absolute stillness of that process, in which you are becoming this fourth, which is a state of completeness, which is going from the states of these other three qualities to a station, but you’re not able to make that yet a station because it’s still somewhat in a language, or a mannerism, even though, you know it’s more meaningful and much more, it still comes across in a way where it’s hard to grasp.

Now what you have to do when you hit a place like that inside of yourself is you have to stay the course. You don’t go back into noodling with things, you stay the course. And eventually that gets clear because you’re meant to be in this new space and it’s just a whole new thing that you have to contend with now, in terms of awakening.

Behind the Scene

eye-of-newt-3Every moment we are confronted by, and limited by, our level of understanding. We react and proceed forward based upon our best understanding at the moment. Yet there is always more to know and more to understand. In the realms of spiritual and energetic development, we can gain access to higher levels of insight and knowledge. Here we see witches in a dream, and that sort of energetic work is very crude – but it does represent a certain understanding of the way things work. It’s wise to remember that there is always more to discover, and that the refinement journey never really ends. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in my first dream, it feels like I’m in this ancient city that even has like a temple-type area. I know how to travel over to that area, and I can travel up and it’s almost like there’s hidden passageways, even on the outside, where you can go up and over.

I go into this area and it’s where the witches are, and I can see what they’re doing, and the ceremonies. I can go back and forth between there and where I live, but it feels like I bring some people with me, the man and some other people I’m with, and I take them there.

But then I have some reservations about that because then I notice that they start trying to go there on their own, or maybe their timing isn’t quite right, or they take some things out from there that maybe they shouldn’t and then that creates a conflict in me for having taken them there.

It feels like that was my first dream, and then…

John: So the theme of the dreaming is to take and to be able to look at different levels of subtle inner awareness. And, as a person becomes more aware, you have different reactions that you have to go through.

To begin with a person can be perfectly calm when things are completely haywire around them, if they don’t even notice, or aren’t paying any attention. It’s as if they’re absolved from that situation.

But then, as you become more aware, or access other levels inside yourself, you come to realize that what is unfolding bothers you, maybe agitates you, and it also is a level of awakening where you get gloom, dire, and obtuse about things.

The difference is that that’s a level of awareness in that, to begin with, you didn’t even give it attention or regard whatsoever, and so everything that was happening, when you weren’t giving it any attention or regard at all, whatever was happening would continue to keep happening. And if there is a breaking down caused by the way something is awry, reflectively, it will continue to break down.

So what you did is you’re looking at a kind of limitation in regards to a particular level within. The level that you went to within was kind of a inner plane level, in which the dynamic that’s able to play with the outer is quickened, which is a wizards kind of thing. And so you can have a misuse of energy there or, if you can handle the witches and wizards realm that can throw you askew because of the way it can be bewildering to you in terms of what you see, if you can take that at a level deeper behind the witches and wizards level, there’s a whole other quality in terms of the way something wakes up.

So what you did, initially, is you went back and you looked at the witches and wizards level. You didn’t take and activate this, so to speak, from the standpoint of boom, boom, boom subtler and subtler, and subtler and subtler, and subtler. Instead you did this kind of an orientation way, that the feminine tends to do, in that you took and you related from a particular state, and in that particular state you have an unfoldment storyline. Each particular state that we are able to go into has its own limitations in terms of its reflective storyline.

Initially the realm of witches and wizards and all of that stuff is kind of Voodoo-ish, if that’s all you’re able to experience. And if you’re manipulating or able to access that and don’t know that there’s more and more behind that that is subtler, and subtler, levels of evolvement to where there are greater and greater energetic states of freedom, if you don’t know that, if you don’t have that opened up, then you can have, just looking at that state alone, you can only have an awareness in relationship to the degree to which you’re able to pull out that state of sight only.

Why? Because you’re taking and going further and further and further back to the epicenter of how things are, in a non-reflective way. And that the breakdown of reflectiveness, yes, it does have a trickle effect, it does go into subtle levels of consciousness, but it’s meant to be that way. Everything is meant to open up.

So it kind of throws a whole different light when you see somebody that’s really, really reactive because being really, really reactive and hypertensive is a process in which you get yourself contaminated, subjected to spells, and traumas, and trances and everything else – but that is a level of awareness that’s better than being amnesic.

And the problem is the reactions aim to eventually go back to the amnesic, but instead you have to progress through that to something that’s able to let go to where you get to quieter states, to where you get to the point where everything that’s going on in the outer is taken into account in terms of an inner process of vibration.

And that the depths to the degree to which something is chaotic, and this is the reason now, this actually explains why the process is like it is, the Yin/Yang aspect of it, in that the greater the degree to which something is askew in terms of its orientation on an outer physical level, the more loud that that is able to be perceived, and taken in, and handled, and lived, the greater the degree one can offset that by going behind the reflective scene to the place in which the dynamic is being spun out – because it’s all a part of a process of awakening.

At first you might say you had kind of a big bang where everything was just left into an emptiness of an amnesia, and then from there it reawakens. But you didn’t dream that. What you dreamt was you looked at a particular state, and then you probably evolve and go to another one.
