343Today’s dream follows on the story from yesterday and adds further clarification to what is going on (see Two Places at Once). What is interesting to note is that the dreamer finds herself in a position that she is unprepared for – to give a talk on a subject she doesn’t know. This could be a recipe for disaster, both in the dream world and in real life. Yet here, everything seems to work out because the dreamer can connect to the essence of something and then just go with the flow of it. When we do that, things naturally seem to fall into place. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The thing about the second dream, I would say, is it felt like the care of the two boys that is done kind of almost in secret seems to be in the background of the second dream somewhere, too. I just don’t pull out very well what all of that was about because they seem to be taken care of almost apart from the community.

And in the second dream, I’ve been called in to give a talk to a classroom. It’s a class that’s being taken for credit probably, more like on a university level, and the people come together. Now the problem that I have is I’m being called to talk about a woman author who wrote in the 1800s, who was kind of adventuresome for that time, but she wrote very mannered books kind of like Jane Eyre or that type of book you saw come out of that time.

And the problem is that I haven’t read the book the class is maybe doing the report on, which is not a biography of the woman. I haven’t read it, but I’m being asked to talk about it. The only thing I catch a glimpse of is I see a brief scene from a film that’s about her life, so I kind of catch her vibe by seeing her in that film.

And when I go into the classroom, the way it’s structured is that everybody sits around with their backs to the walls, all around the room so the center of the room is empty. In fact, it’s almost partly outdoors and indoors as well. And I may just give a brief talk because I realize the main thing is to get them talking somewhat about it because they should have read the autobiography, as well as maybe some of the books that she’s read, and I know a little bit about them.

And then I seem to be asked to do the same thing a second time. The second time some of the people show up for the class and, once they’ve reported in, they disappear. And so the people in the class that I have to talk to is much smaller now, but I notice one man who carries a lot of energy, that’s quiet, and I know that he knows the subject thoroughly, and that the only way I can really present on this with my not having read the autobiography, and only have gotten a glimpse of the author’s energy, is to get those people in the room that really know about it to dialogue.

John: So you just now made that dream that was a bewilderment make sense, because basically what you said is, okay, if you just look at it like that, in kind of a black-and-white, in which there is either the railroad line, or there’s not, and if there’s not there is an awareness, and if there is the railroad line the density of that is such that it’s kind of like one or the other. It’s like how do you cross between the two worlds?

And in this dream you pointed out how it’s possible. In other words, it’s possible to know something from the past on the basis of how the vibration of that is. And in that vibration, as you hold that vibration, you’re able to communicate that vibration across. And as you communicate that vibration across, even though you don’t have the physical tangibility of something there in front of you, you make it almost as real as if it is right there in front of you. And thus you are carrying an essence from an innerness into an outerness without having to get lost in the form and the substance of how things are.

Well, this is the meaning of music that can catch the lilt and the vibe of the soul in its own kind of way because it has more of a proximity to something etheric, as opposed to something that is set and died and true and dense. It’s also true of one’s ability to take and, say, look at a picture and suddenly find themselves transported to something that isn’t even on the screen, in terms of a value and an essence that is in the picture.

And, in that regard, you have gone beyond the density of the physicality of something in front of you, and you’ve gone to some quality of an innerness that bleeds through, that resonates, that is part of that. So, in a way, you could say that a type of merging has come about between the inner and the outer to where there is the aliveness that has quickened, that is there as well as the two have come together as one.

So your second dream indicates how it is done, even though your first dream told it in a very black-and-white way. It’s not quite black-and-white, and your second dream corrected it and pointed out that this is actually something that manifests energetically. Did you have more? You didn’t need anymore. That cleared it all up. That made it all smooth and okay, right?

Jeane’s dream provides a very compelling logic: we should stop looking at the details of life to gain an understanding of it, and instead we should look at the entirety to get a clearer sense of what is going on. That may seem strange, but there’s truth in it. It’s not the pieces that explains the whole, but the whole that explains the pieces. Look for the deep connections, not the separations, if you seek the truth. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well I’m still struggling with dreams that have such a strong reverb in them that I get lost in that reverb.

In this case it’s like near the end of the dream I’m seeing this pattern and what it is, is it’s like whatever the situation is that someone’s struggling with – and in this case the person is Miley Cyrus, the singer – she’s given a certain format in which you can sing which makes it easier to be successful.

And I’m talking to somebody else about them, and showing them that people are given this formula and, when they are given this formula, it makes it easier to handle whatever’s going on in life.

But then that person points out to me that, in this dream at least it must be right after like the war with Germany, and Miley Cyrus was on the side of the Germans, so why is she given the song? They don’t feel like that’s quite fair, like why is anyone given this particular pattern rather than maybe the people that were perceived as the good guys.

So then I start struggling with that, so then I struggle with the formula and what the song is, and then like this person is saying, why is this person given it just as equally as this other person? And I can’t quite figure that out, so I start reverb-ing with it. And then that reverb is so loud I can’t really remember much of the rest of the dream.

John: Meaning that that’s probably the dream, which is that – my dream had to do with just to show you by contrast – because I don’t reverb and reverb quite as much as you do because that is more of a trait where you’re like in life and trying to make the life natural and get it to properly flow. And yet you can’t help but try to still distinguish things.

And your reverb dream is trying to show you there’s nothing in particular, there’s nothing specific that makes the difference, in other words, as if the overallness of life isn’t good enough, and that there’s just a central note, or central theme, or central song, or central energetic that permeates through everything, and everybody has that. And that you don’t have to go around trying to look and see where it is at because it permeates through everything – if you know how to look at it, and to experience it.

And I think the scenario that kind of set that sort of thing up was I saw the theme in the outer get established yesterday and it occurred when I was talking, and it was like I had a certain agitation or mannerism about me, but then I suddenly realized that everything that is unfolding – it all comes together, it all makes sense, it all is designed to resonate in a way that is inclusive. And that you do not take and go and try to exclude anything, or to try to differentiate one thing from another, and that whatever is in front of you, you take and you work with as part of the unfolding scenario.

You have to honor that. You honor that quality that takes and requires your attention in that regard, and if you don’t give that your attention in that regard, then something is missing in terms of the way you are able to feel yourself. And in your dream you’re having to recognize that that attention cannot be specifically segregated and oriented, that you find that it’s in everything. It’s all around you.

Jeane: It feels like I spent a lot of the night struggling with this dream. I’m in a building and the floor is a sphere, which means that I’ll slide down the sides if I go too far. I don’t travel too far in any direction before I come back.

We’ve been given a container that we can use to catch something that we drink. The problem is, I’m convinced the container is the wrong size – it’s either too narrow or maybe it’s too short.  

I’m sure they should have given us another size because these containers just aren’t appropriate for catching whatever it is we need to catch as we slide down the side of the sphere.

John: The condition you’re describing is that you’re on a slippery slope. Yet you have a fallback that you can depend on, or seek the aid of, in this idea of a container to catch rainwater (refreshment or renewal). In other words, it’s something of sustenance….

Jeane: I think it was coffee, not rainwater.

John: Whatever the drink is, it’s supposed to make everything better. What you’re really doing is describing your condition as you know it to be in the outer (a slippery slope), but with the realization that there’s something you can turn to, or reach for, that provides a type of relief.

So the dream is zooming in on your current state of affairs, but there’s a note in your nature that seeks to make it workable. You’re constantly looking at this note, or quality, or vibration, though you have some doubts whether it’s tuned quite right, i.e., the size of the container isn’t appropriate for the job.

In your opinion there’s some alignment that needs to occur. In any event, even if it’s not quite right, you know it’s useful on the slippery slope. You do have this bit of help as you struggle, as imperfect as it is.

It’s an interesting dream in that it’s attempting to show you that you’re experiencing something on an inner level that can make a difference in your outer conditions. Still, your doubts show that something more is needed. You haven’t taken into account all that this inner note can do in terms of holding its energetic in some sweeping way.

You’re slipping and sliding, not sure how this note is meant to make the difference, or not convinced that it can make the difference.

It’s a difficult dream, because there’s an awkwardness to it, a sloppiness. A lot of our dreams lately have this feeling. It’s almost as if we’re in the Twilight Zone now.
