auras-humanIf we were able to see all the energies surrounding us, and, of course, some people can, it would be easier to understand how, when we move, we create energetic ripples into the surrounding environment. It is a fact, whether we acknowledge it or not. As we make our spiritual journey, we seek to connect more and more deeply with the energies that are in our environment, because they are filled with information and intelligence about the “other” effects going on around us. When we do connect, we are closer to the flow of things, and are working with the energies at play in a given moment.

John: So, in the meditation dream, there is the sense that a particular effect has occurred. So I go over to where it was to have happened, and the effect is not there; but the object, or whatever it is, is very loud as if it is set forth in another spot.

So, you know, this is a tough image and whatnot to understand in that, usually, the way your mind works is your mind looks at something in a black-and-white way. But then, when you’re affected by being able to hold onto a magnetic energy, then you can deal with things that are more translucent – and it could be over here, it could be over there. It doesn’t have to be any black-and-white, controlled way.

That’s kind of what this is talking about, but the meaning I wrote up is: in the dream there is the sense that an effect that has occurred, and if I follow my heart to see where it is directing my attention to be placed, I will notice that the effect occurred, but not where I expected, and that, as a result, there was the surprise in terms of where to look. And I’m able to follow, and handle, the effect when my heart remains attentive upon sustaining the net effect.

Basically, what is the net effect? Well, the net effect is this huge overallness. And actually the word “net” is probably the wrong word, because it’s inclined to look at things as if you are compacting to a particular point. But maybe overall effect is the word, because when you sustain the overall effect the location of that is there is no location of it – and yet it’s all taken into account. And there’s a vibratoriness, you know, like the dhikr vibration, or the light vibration, or something that somehow or another is able to accommodate all of that. But, in terms of it being meaningful, it has to keep being grounded.

The plane of sound and such that the Chistis work with is trying to figure this out by a rising up of the energy, as opposed to something that is coming down, as a light coming down. They have the light rising up, and they’re trying to look at it equivocating that way, but I struggle with that because in the world soul of things that’s on life support, so to speak, it requires something more.

It requires something of a greater all-encompassingness that comes through, and that can’t come through because our nature is inclined, like what you were trying to do, it’s inclined to try to put it within parameters – and it can’t. It has to take it as it is in this, and to be able to take it as it is, it has to ground it, has to make it ground.

So the dream is indicating that there are an extreme degree of outer variables capable of causing one’s mind to go askew. But in the dream, when I hold onto a net effect vibration, or a magnetized part of myself, as a result of holding onto that, I’m able to follow the effect through, because you’re not having to steer it, or be attached, or whatever, for it to be defined.

Because the variables are more than I am capable of taking into account, I must learn to maintain the inner power essence behind the breath, which is what designs as the situation requires. The net effect is shaped by the heart, and not by my ideas, in terms of what is important. I need to trust in this net effect, or overall effect, whatever you want to call it, as being how I am meant to be.

6636We are constantly processing energy, from our thoughts, emotions, ideas, intentions, and any number of external factors we encounter. Part of what a development path allows is for a person to consistently connect to higher energies, energies that can only reach us when we make our lives a suitable ecology (higher energies require cleaner, less coarse ecologies). With such higher energies also comes different intelligences, because all energies have their own evolution and progress, just as we do.

Jeane: The dream I’m having the most trouble pulling out was a real early dream. What I remember in that dream is being at a group full of people, like an auditorium, except no chairs or anything, like everybody was doing something within the auditorium.

And it feels like at one point a woman is talking to me and I’m supposed to be looking in this bag that I have, and I think what I have in there are some Native American Indian chants, or something else, that I’m trying to locate, or maybe even a flute that you play. And I realize I don’t do it as well as people that have done it.

I’m a little reluctant because I feel like I don’t know as much about what I’m doing, or I’m rusty or something like that, but she’s telling me to do this anyway. That’s the dream that I just remember that little snatch of it. I don’t remember most of that dream.

John: So in this dream you have this bag, and in this bag are things that you do not really have a very good understanding about? So these items that are in there, you consider these items like Native American, and yet it’s deemed that you have some sort of knowledge about the workings of these items.

And if you do, to the degree to which you might even accept that you do, you don’t believe you are very good at it, which means that you don’t really consider those items as belonging to you. And yet you’re required to take and deal with something that is kind of hidden or, let’s say, removed from how it is that you see yourself to be.

But they’re Native American items. That’s kind of foreign, even though you have a vague familiarity of what they are, and now you’re told that you can use them. Isn’t there something strange about that?

Jeane: It didn’t seem strange to me. It just felt like I wished I were better at it.

John: So how is it that you are familiar with this stuff if it’s Native American? Well you had a memory of something back in time and you were familiar with this, that you can’t put your finger on, but you feel just in your bones. So this is really irrational, isn’t it?

It made perfect sense to you vibrationally, but mentally, rationally, in an outer world does not make any sense. So what you’re having is a dream in which, on an energetic level, it makes sense to you based upon a once upon a time part of yourself, whenever that was, however that was, because you have no memories of that, only vibrational features that seem to be bleeding through. No facts to back it up, however. And yet vibrationally you have a familiarity with them, and then you’re told that you are to play them, that you are to bring them out.

See the nature of what was going on last night is that there is meant to be a flushing through of energy, a coming through of a very powerful force energy from the inner into the outer, and that this is able to sweep into life.

Now, in order for this to happen, you have to have this vibrational realization awakened inside of you. And this vibrational realization can’t be awakened inside of a person if they are caught in the minutia of their mental goings on, in terms of how they see themselves.

So, in other words, if you just had a physical orientation, and that was the perspective you were coming from, you wouldn’t know what to make out of this bag or the objects that were in it. But because you have a connection to something that goes beyond the physical, you are finding yourself located somewhere that you don’t know, which means you only know it vibrationally.

And because this part of yourself, this domain or world of yourself, has been hidden and, technically speaking, is densed down or veiled in the physical world, but is still an aliveness that is connected and sweeps through everything that there is, and has a knowledge of everything that there is, based upon a vibrational level. That is what is coming through.

There are no secrets in that level, because on that level energy is just pure energy, and it sweeps through everything. And the thing that keeps you from knowing this is the fact that physical existence has dumbed it down. I mean it’s kind of a problem for the soul, which is infinite, that is omniscient and omnipotent, to have to be housed in something which is finite.

In fact, it doesn’t even make sense, and yet that is the peculiar circumstances. And in order for things to be dealt with in this loci, that which is omniscient has to get fully grounded into that which is finite, and it has to go into an unconsciousness and all of that. But the vibrational qualities can be caught up with.

And those vibrational qualities, vibration being an energy, is all that there really is in terms of what is omniscient and omnipotent. And you’re able to touch, and experience, and work with that and you can do it when you go on that level. It makes sense to you even. You’re told that you can do this, and you have a familiarity in terms of being able to work with this energetic, but if you were talking about it strictly in a physical sense, this would be goofy talk. But in your dream, this whole other area is completely totally alive. And so you have this really peculiar dichotomy, or so it would seem.

But the dichotomy is happening there for a reason. This is happening because the theme of the dreaming, the theme of what was to be observed and noted, had to do with something coming through in a kind of way that doesn’t ordinarily come through. A vibration came through in your dreamworld louder than before. You got a huge dose of the other side. That’s why it’s humorous to take and pretty much stack it up on one side against reality in the physical on the other, and notice the peculiarity of the whole thing. I mean it literally does not make sense: you should not know what’s inside of the bag that you’re carrying. You can’t provide any mental evidence of how it is that you have a familiarity with it. It’s Native American; you’re not Native American.

I mean like all the questions we asked, this whole thing is bizarre, and yet you have to pull the two of them together, the inner into the outer, and that’s what you seek to do. I mean that’s why you were willing to argue that this did make sense in your sleep, because it pulled the two together. But if you wake up and separate them, it doesn’t make any sense.

And yet if it does, then that means the access of what you have vibrationally has come right down into the physical, and can be used in some capacity now to effectuate something that is meant to happen at this particular state of time. Well, I believe that that has happened, whether that will be something that stays with us, or whether this is just a glimpse and we’re getting steadier and steadier glimpses.

This is almost a type of kundalini craziness that can drive you insane you know if you were to try to look at it and make sense out of it, but it is what is happening in terms of an innerness, that is alive, that we are having to contend with, which had been veiled, and is ordinarily veiled in terms of the outer – and that is not what you are reporting in your dream.

1_sh_439132It becomes more and more clear that spiritual development, like any development or learning process, can only progress to a certain point – unless we begin to apply it into life. For example, if we learn all about music theory, but never play an instrument or write a composition, what has been learned will slowly fade away. By the living practice of our spiritual understandings we not only deepen it in ourselves, we add something good into the world for others to find.

John: This is very, very interesting when contrasted with how the masculine dreams about it. The masculine has to look at it in detail, so to begin with everything is kind of incognito, in terms of the masculine, in terms of the consciousness that evolves. It’s like the clarity of things just don’t quite come through. I mean, you might have intuitions and senses about it, but it just doesn’t quite register.

And then after a long, long course of time the clarity or ability to experience something changes a bit, just like in meditation you initially just have a wonderful experience but you have no idea of anything. You don’t see anything, you don’t dream anything, you just wake up real soothed and it’s kind of like a type of glorified sleep or something – but it isn’t quite asleep.

Well, as time progresses as you get into this, this process has a way of kicking you out of the loudness of the outer identification, the orientation strictly to the outer. You’re trying to work from the top down to bring in the inner quality. And so the way the masculine would experience this is they get to the point where they can actually see the inches, inch by inch by inch by inch, as if you’re following the thread and suddenly you can see what you couldn’t see before.

And then it gets to a point where there’s a shift and you can’t see the inches anymore, and you’re still advancing, and when you hit that point in order to get back to being able to see the inches again, that kundalini energy that had awakened to the point where you could see the inches, has gotten to the point where now it has to have gone into matter and has to be lived. And so now what you see denotes something that has to be lived.

And so as you live that energy, or as you take it into something that has been unfolding within to something now in order to maintain something, you have to live that, or you have to take that into an expression. As you do that, then you start to see the inches again that had gotten all of a sudden too subtle where you couldn’t pick them up. And that corresponds to the idea that this is like now an awakening that is almost like a type of need to know basis where you have to be in a certain experientiality for it to be fed to you, or for you to be able to perceive it or to get it.

So that was like the meditation dream. I mean, it was kind of like a kundalini orientation. The masculine has got to eventually get to the point where it can see what the heck it is. In other words, it can intuit but can it see it? And it has to eventually get so that you can kind of see it, but then it gets to the point where it can’t see it anymore and that is where you have to go from the states of things that just echo around and go away if there isn’t a certain livability. And then when you get into the livability, that subtleness then can then become perceptively integrated. Let’s see if I wrote anything more of any significance about that. I remembered that. It is better than I remembered.

For a long time an individual develops within, and the progress seems inconsequential and goes largely unnoticed, especially in terms of the person that’s doing this, that’s on the path. They almost can wonder why they’re meditating, or why they’re doing this, that, or the other because it’s not on a level that you could put your finger on with your senses and your mind, most of it.

So there comes a time when what had been a process that was mostly of faith and trust, yields to the point where you can start to see inner signs or inner… you start to recognize things. You start to see things, start to note things. And this progresses to a point where the inner signs then get so subtle again that in order to stay with them you make it more conscious and real again in terms of a thread unfoldment that a livableness needed to also take place.

So in the dream that is depicted by foot long fish which symbolize a consciousness coming alive as an outer sensation that is invigorating and awakening. And to begin with it’s felt as quite an invigoration of kundalini energy and it is lived outwardly; it permeates into the outward as a dynamic. It is at this point though, through, the living out that then a visibility or energy is given or something or how you would say that, so that there is a further ability to recognize what had been too subtle to see.

Or to say it another way, it is one thing to experience the states within, and another thing to live them in manifestation, especially when you get to a particular point where a lot of the path has to do with just kind of getting yourself so that you don’t keep flinching at everything in the outer and you start to recognize that there’s the inner essence that’s the dealmaker of things that reflect in the outer.

So there comes a time in the path when the innerness must be lived – or it can’t be retained. And that is the central meaning of the dream image, and so there are two fish and one is selected to live out. Whether it’s selected over the other as an alternative or it is one at a time, it is hard to know because I only dealt with the one.

So how does that progress? In my sleep what ended up happening is first of all I have to advance this aliveness and outer/inner connection. In other words, I can’t just have it come down as something that’s really vibratory and then you figure out how to make the bits and pieces unfold. To begin with that’s how it has to work, and when it’s like that that’s just a precursor to something more. And this precursor when it’s like that pales in comparison to the awakening in which the perspective evolves as a kind of presence as an overallness to everything, to so much more.

When it’s coming down it’s loud and it bolts all over the place, and you have to make way for it, but then as it settles in it kind of goes into the energetic that you live in manifestation, and it acts in a way that permeates from that. What I carry has a depth in it, and by that I mean there is a presence when the energy is permeated into manifestation.

In the meditation dream it is coming through from the inner and is experienced as a quickened aliveness, but then as it settles and constellates this evolves and carries when it evolves a more encompassing presence which just permeates out. It becomes more of a subtleness. A groundedness prevails and the transmission is subtle. Whether that’s mystical, or whether that’s magical, it just is because it does effectuate things, but does it subtly.
