imag333esIt is a particularly unhelpful track we humans have gone on, that we believe that we are the source of what is happening. And to compound the problem, when we come across an obstacle, we think that we will find the solution. But this conception removes us from our faith, belief, and trust in the unfolding of the universe, of which we are an integral part. Did we think the universe created us and then left us to our own devices? Unlikely, when we acknowledge the precision and beauty of the unfolding of everything we know. That is why so much of our work is to let go of this deep-rooted concept, and embrace the fact that we are part of a bigger unfolding, one that is trying to help us all the time, if we can just get out of our own way.

Jeane: I don’t remember all of the dream. I know they were fairly profound last night, and that I was kind of struggling in them in a way. One dream I remember going into a room where Lew [a teacher] was, but he’s wearing more like a bathrobe, and he’s turned away as though he’s upset. And it feels as though I’m trying to give him some information that’s a little more reassuring about what’s happening, because this town that we’re in I seem to know more about. I know something about some history there, or things that are buried, or hidden there, and so I’m trying to be a little reassuring about how things look.

And then I remember going into another room where Lew’s in bed with his wife. And I’m over near the edge of the bed, because he asked me I have to tell him about some of the mysteries I’ve read. And it seems to me like I’m walking around to the opposite side of the bed, and making the bed, as I’m talking to him about some mysteries that take place in different countries that I like. But I’m a little sheepish about that, that I read these mysteries, although I know he likes mysteries, too.

And then some people come in, or I get distracted, because I notice that in other rooms that are on opposite sides from each other, it’s like there’s a little girl in one, and I don’t think there’s anyone in the other one, but some candles in those rooms have caught on fire. The room the little girl’s in there’s more fire. There’s less fire, because I seem to be putting the fire out, in the room I’m in.

But I have to leave my room to go over to her room and show her how to put the fire out. I seem to feel like I can put the fire out because it’s come from candles that have dripped, but in the process, although the fire in those two rooms seems to get put out, there’s a room on the opposite side, in fact in an other area even, that used to maybe be an old jail, that I had known about because again I seem to know about this town more than anyone else that’s in it, when the candles caught fire they seem to cause a melting that revealed this room. Part of that old room was a jail and there’s some old skeletons there. It’s like Lew’s kind of looking at that with a little bit of interest.

Then another part of the jail contains a woman that had been maybe locked up, or contained there, that I felt I was not a very good influence. She was maybe even somebody that had been in charge during that time, but it was better that she was dormant. And I also seem to be trying to find some tea for people, maybe even to serve her tea.

Then I suddenly seem to be whisked away by a couple members of the group who are flying from where we are to Malta, and they’re going to fly back. I know the timeframe they’re going there and coming back is really tight, so you can’t get separated from the group with whatever they do when they’re there. But what they seem to want to do is to go to this market and eat these special Swiss or Swedish pastries. I’m more concerned with how will our timing be with getting back. And I think that was when I woke up.

John: The dreaming last night was very much process oriented, they were like work dreams, in that the underlying schematic had to do with how one contends, or is involved with things, in life, and it’s an involvement though that’s based upon the understanding of letting go. But you don’t just let go. You have to come to see why it is part of a greater plan to be in a position, in terms of yourself, to be letting go.

Now, to begin with, the process starts on the path where there is a certain focus and attention. Now, in many instances, let’s say focus and attention is something that has to be established, and you build to that, as part of a way of holding a quality of attention that is needed to break the trance and spells that have you preoccupied. But, in this working dream, it’s now time to take and set aside the focus and attention a bit to a greater letting go.

So you start off with the focus and attention placed upon a type of doingness. Your focus and attention starts off well meaning enough, but it’s not accepting the recognition that everything is already known. Now it’s good that you’re doing this with Lew, as opposed to someone else, because it starts off with the idea, in regards to something that you’re doing for him, that you feel needs to be done, as it is important in some fashion; as if, if it isn’t done, then something is missing.

First of all, it’s a good quality of focus and attention that you have found, but now you have to set it aside because it really has a deeper listening center that’s needed to unfold.

So the next image what you’re doing is the deviations. The idea about there being a this and a that that’s interesting, or significant, is deviation, something you can turn to. That has to be understood in relationship to the shift in the quality of the focus and attention. In other words, you’ve caught up with the focus and attention to get to a particular point. Now that focus and attention has you indulged upon looking upon something in order to kind of sharpen it, or streamline it, or cause something to be that needs to be, but it’s something that needs to stop because you’re attempting to do this with something that actually knows better, and sees better.

And so then the dream tries to hint you on this. In other words, it took a good initial step, you to kind of set the table of things, so that you would then be able to see that the idea about this being a mystery, and that being a mystery, that this is the bed that you had to figure out how to sleep in, so to speak. You know, you’re trying to figure out how to make the bed. That’s where you’re seeing that your focus and attention can still go, and that would be utilizing the kind of focus and attention that you first had to catch up with, but now need to drop and let go because you’re capable of hearing something in a quieter center of yourself, that doesn’t involve having to do any lifting or heavy action anymore. You can do it in a deeper, inner presence spatiality.

So what this is portraying is that, if you can make the shift from this focus of attention which has to do with the idea where you have these things that you need to still finish up, or indulge in, or whatever, if you can drop that, then you get caught up in a quality that incorporates, I would call it a type of stillness in that there is something that has died, or gone away. In other words, there’s no need for that sort of sustainability.

But see the dream is now pointing out that the reason why you had to hold an attentiveness, to a this and a that, is because if, and as, you caught up to a level of stillness that in the next step inside of yourself comes out something that has to be reckoned with because it is something repressed that is too much. In other words, it’s a power, or a quality, inside of you that’s been repressed that’s too much.

Your dream is saying that you have this quality inside of yourself that you’re having to try to be very careful to not fall into, or not awaken, that you are on the path towards having to contend with, that is dark, that deep down you see this dark, dark side that’s more than you can handle, or more than you realize or believe that you can handle.

The focus and attention now needs to shift to be utilized in a new way, and that new shift is a type of letting go, and in that letting go is kind of a death to the action in that kind of motif in which you have been using that as a means, like a defense mechanism means, to keep from unleashing that would come out if you were in a stillness, which is kind of a side of yourself with kind of a dark power feminine energy that you are afraid of, that you know that you house somehow inside of yourself.

If given the choice, if you were making decisions, you would prefer to continue to do a this and a that and a this and a that as a kind of means of keeping that veiled. And if you quit doing a this and a that and a this and a that, that comes out, and that’s something that you’re going to have to reckon with. In other words, we take steps on a path, and this is a step that you’re walking into.

bre8It’s it a wonderfully connective image to realize that everything in the universe is breathing – it’s something we have in common with what surrounds us. And this idea of breathing needs to include more than the breathing of oxygen, but also the breathing of energies – which is another kind of food for us. And to breathe with something is to be in sync with it, because it has been scientifically proven that people in love can breathe in unison. This concept is also used in healing therapies. So imagine what that means for us, if we can breathe with the whole of the universe? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in the dream, it’s like I’m going back and examining working at healing with the breath, that this is something that I know something about doing, or I’ve done in the past. I’m in the process of examining that, and just working with the breath.

I come across some people talking about a meeting they’re having, where even someone I knew who is in high school is coming into town, and she’s going to be teaching a class to another group of people that also do breath work. And I know she’s very bright, but she’s kind of stiff, and I know that I probably even know more about teaching it, or can do it in a more lively way than she can. But I hadn’t even realized this group of people have been meeting, and having seminars on it, locally.

I had never met up with the group that was doing it, or teaching it, even though I have a lot of experience in it. And so they didn’t have any idea I could do it, either, so one person I can see is kind of interested they could see that I could probably teach a good class in this, but others who are in charge are kind of dubious because they had never thought of me one way or another of being able to do this.

So I’m pondering all that, and I see that she’s going to come and she’ll teach, and I’m going over in my mind what will be the difference in the ways that I might teach, or what I could introduce.

And then I seem to drift a little…

John: What’s interesting in the first dream is that the awareness you have, you describe it as an awareness of breath, that is something that you’re coming to recognize, in other words, the vibrational element within that, and that you’re able to facilitate or teach that. In other words, it’s something that you didn’t realize that you could do, but you’ve kind of been doing, and you’re recognizing that you can do this. That you’ve always had this quality about you that could do this.

The unusual thing about this is it’s a Catch-22. The teacher is in the outer. In other words, all the others that you see that are doing it, and the others that you liken to as individuals, or as a group, are actually a functionality of the outer that everything in life is breathing this one quality. And that it is this one quality that you’re coming to recognize that you have inside of yourself.

In other words, this is an odd kind of way of saying this to yourself. In other words, like you’re creating the image as if there are other people that do this, and that you suddenly realize that this is something that you’re able to do, that you recognize. Actually that’s still keeping it as a duality. But when you take the duality out, you realize that everything around you is doing this, is breathing in this particular vibrational way.

It all has a note that undulates through life, and that you can find that, and channel that, and be at home with that, and in tune with that, yourself. It’s a type of understanding that you need to catch up with because the vibration is all around you in life, and that you have separated yourself from it. And so, in the dream, you’re acting like you’re recognizing that it’s supported somehow or another, in terms of others that are in the scenario, and that you can do this yourself, and perhaps do it better.

In any event, you’re evaluating how it is that you are in relationship to this. It’s slightly off in that the thing that is teaching is life itself, and it is showing that it is carrying this singular one-mindedness of an energetic of breath that permeates everything, and that you are coming to find out that you are correlated with that.

So it’s tricky. In other words, the duality mind is having you looking at this as if others are doing it and that you are finding that you can do it as well or better, or however you want to contemplate that. And instead, what is actually going on, is that all of the world has been doing this and that you have been holding yourself off as separate, and then are coming to find out that you have a recognition of this sort of thing, and that discovery that you have this recognition of this sort of thing, you’re taking as some sort of epiphany about yourself. But the thing is, is it’s like waking up out of a trance. What is really going on is the whole world is breathing in this fashion. This whole world is alive in this fashion.

This is the atonement that is permeating in everything that there is, and that you are coming to recognize that you are a part of that. You’re not distinguished in some fashion from that. You are part of that. So all of the others in the group, and all of that that you’re talking about, is the wholeness or the overallness, to which you are awakening to find yourself to be a component of that. Isn’t that interesting how that turns?

gsomConnecting to higher essences and energies is not unlike the game we play as children where, as we near something, we are said to be getting “warmer.” It is our intentions and our repetitions – if they are universally, rather than personally, motivated – that will draw higher energies to us, and from there it is our refinement of those connections, as we try “this” to see if it works, and we try “that.” In this way we woo the unseen relationship, and become a safety for it in our lives. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, in this dream, it’s evening. I’m with a group of people on a lawn and we’re listening to a speaker, a man, and after the speaker stops talking we walk in this kind of zigzag pattern as we’re starting to leave. And someone hands me a paper bag which is like a meal. Oh, wait a minute, there’s a part of this dream right before this.

Right before this it felt like I was in an infirmary, where you go when you’re sick, and I have to get some medicine. And the person that’s going to give me the medicine, there’s a couple of people that are there, but you don’t take it like you do normally. You put it in a tube and, when you take it out of the tube, you have to take it out a certain way and ingest it a certain way. So they have to explain all of that to me.

And it feels like after all that happened that I’ve gone to the hillside to listen to the speaker and as the crowd is breaking up after the speaker, we’re leaving and kind of walking in a zigzag pattern, and someone comes and hands me a paper bag with our meal in it, lunch or sandwich or something.

And then we go over to a house, and it’s a house that the speaker and his wife live in; they’re both there. And we’re supposed to go up and talk, but we have to leave our food. We can’t take our food up to the room where the speaker’s talking, so we have to leave it somewhere else in the house – and we can’t eat yet.

It’s like a wooden house with several floors to it and, again, we seem to move in a little bit of a zigzag pattern, and we go up and we’re going up and into a room where the speaker’s talking and also his wife seems to direct things a bit on where you go.

There’s a lot of people there and it’s a little confusing exactly what the order is, and then when it’s time to go I realize I’ve left my food somewhere. I have to go back and find the paper bag I was given. But then you don’t want to be taking it into the wrong area of the house, you know it’s l was like trying to figure out what the rules are, and at the same time I seemed to be running into people that I knew from the past.

I know one of them that was kind of… her husband’s excited about something, but she’s sad about the same thing. They give me something they’ve made, but she’s looking a little bruised or something, and I don’t really have time to find out what’s going on because there’s always a kind of zigzag movement and things just keep moving all the time.

And then I’m not sure that I can get my food, and I’ve actually gone over, for some reason the speaker had taken off his shoes and they were next to an area, and I have put my feet in his shoes for a minute. And his wife is standing there, and it’s like I’m trying to see what size shoes he has or something, and then I kind of take them off. And then she’s showing me where I go to get the food, or where I go to leave.

That’s about all I can remember of the dream. It was hard to remember because there were a lot of people and there was all this zigzag motion going on all the time, from one level to the next.

John: It’s an interesting dream from the standpoint that it is proceeding to portray what’s involved in trying to catch up with the inner light within, or the consciousness of it all, that exists even though we are veiled from it in the outer.

And that was the theme of the evening was about the fact that there is this, what I call four-pointed star, that you can’t see, and that with that being the vibe of this sort of thing in the atmosphere of existence, you are taking and going through a type of, you call it zigzagging, but it’s a type of spinning to try to sort out where you’re at in relationship to this underlying schematic.

And you do that by checking out whatever it is that you need to take in. That’s the process of going into the infirmary. You assimilate in proximity to it by even trying, and examining, the shoes of how that essence is carried.

And the rest of the dream is the journey that you see yourself on, or a quest. It’s kind of like a quest for the holy grail with inside of yourself, and you are in the neighborhood of that, in that you are pursuing the sense of what it is that is essential to your being.

And so your dream is portraying where you’re at, or how you’re feeling yourself, in relationship to this underlying overallness, or oneness, that is everywhere. It’s as if there’s just some little subtle thing that is blocking it from being recognized and seen, in terms of its overall, all-pervasive presence. So you are zooming in, so to speak, in terms of following a thread or a vibration to intertwine with that.
