John: So yesterday we looked at the first in this series of dreams (see Not Being There), and each subsequent dream progresses in a way that seeks to fix, or evolve, the situation into a better state, from within, but it’s still off. The general inspiration for these dreams is our recent transition from the Northwest to the city of Las Vegas, and our process of making adjustments within ourselves as a result of the different environmental factors

The next images have me preparing to meet with someone. I’ve spent more than 15 minutes trying to get my glasses clean because all kinds of weird stuff has fallen on them. I’m trying to scrape it off.

I see that I’m veering away from where I’m expected to go. When I get to a building, I realize that I still need some sort of metal object that can slice; I need something that’s strong and firm enough that it can cut through things. I must build it myself.

I have permission to go into an area where odds and ends are stored to select something that might work to help rectify the condition. I take out four objects in an effort to alleviate the situation. I think I can use a welding tool to cobble things into place, but what I’ve selected doesn’t work because when I apply any heat to it, it will melt or burn through the material. The tools I have do not have what it takes to hold something in place, so I’m using this material to create something that can slice through. 

Meanwhile, I need to set this project aside because I’m running late and I nearly compromise my principles because I’m under pressure. At the last minute I clean up after the work I’ve done.

In other words, I tried to cut a little of this off, I tried to burn a little of that off, and I made a bit of a mess. I pick up after myself and take what’s left of the implements – they need to be returned. They didn’t work for me, but maybe they can be used as components for something else. I look around to see if I can make anything else work for what I need.

Someone is coming over so I have to put everything aside for now. But instead of putting the tools into a closet or some drawers where they would best be kept, I put some of them into a refrigerator. I can straighten that out later, but at the moment I need to gain some composure for my meeting.

What is this showing me? Well, although I still haven’t accomplished what I was trying to do, I’m aware of what the problem is – I just haven’t acquired the proper tools that I need to be successful.

However, I do realize that I must look within myself for what I need, in order to find balance in the outer life. This will take time, but at least I’m looking around (within) for the tools to resolve the imbalance. If I were looking for the solution in the outer life, I would be in serious trouble.

In the next dream, the imagery moves further toward a sense of completion (after that, my dreams again start to deviate from it, showing that nothing is complete, all is just a step forward and then it all starts over again).

In this dream, I find a condo that I feel I can make into a place of balance. I notice that in doing this, other apartment units near mine start changing, shaping themselves up to be more in a balanced energetic.

So what had been a state of confusion and chaos, in terms of everything being too much to cope with (because of the sensory overload of Las Vegas), is now being brought into greater alignment. I see that I’m able to move about without feeling so lost.

What this adds to the scenario is that, if I take the time to look at what lies within – as an awareness, or as an answer – I’m better able to flow in the maze of the outer world. I’m learning how to hold onto and apply an inner connection that is able to reach into all that is before me.

And I’m starting to find the value latent within (the outer world of Las Vegas) that I ordinarily don’t reach (nor do most people). Nearly everyone in Las Vegas is expecting to catch up with the meaning of this place in some sort of outer reflection, and that is just a veil over what is really here.

Jeane: In this dream I am involved with a group, and I am wearing a cap that identifies the group I am with – it is a Sufi cap. Someone in the group has a baby that needs treatment, so we have taken the baby home with us.

The baby needs some sort of treatment so we have put it in a type of incubator, but it looks like a fish tank. On the side of the incubator are monitoring devices. A woman (a friend) is coming over to go for a walk with me. You are to my right. There is another woman who is administering the treatment for the baby; it is a tiny, tiny baby in the fish tank.

I look over at the monitors on the wall and they have suddenly gone awry. From the way it looks, I say to the woman, “I think the baby is flat-lining.” Then I see a little activity pick up, so I walk over to the tank and see that this baby, which is so tiny and looks like it still has its umbilical cord, is just hopping mad about being there and getting this treatment.

I can totally understand that. I scratch at the front of the tank as one does with animals in a cage, to let it know you are there. Then my friend is ready to go for the walk. I find my Sufi cap and put it on. You question whether it is a real Sufi cap because you do not see the label. I show you the lining and the price tag on it, and I think the label read, Sorry by Sara, but it may be Sara by Sara, I’m not sure.

But you could tell it was a Sufi cap; it looked different from my friend’s cap, but it was still a Sufi cap. I put on the cap so that my friend and I can go for the walk. That’s the whole dream.

John: So your dream has three characteristics to it: one characteristic shows a point of balance that is important to you – that is the Sufi cap. A second characteristic has to do with seeing everything more in terms of the flow, from an even higher aspect – that is reflected in your friend and going for a walk. And the third aspect shows something that is yet to emerge, that is repressed, or held back, and cannot get free of its conditions; this is represented by the small baby, who is weak but getting treatment to get stronger.

It’s interesting that the baby is hopping mad at the treatment – it cannot quite accept the flow. So there seems to be some volleying going on in terms of trying to get the balance right between these aspects. When the balance is not right, treatment is required.

So the cap shows an awakened energetic in you, yet it does not quite have the inner linkage yet. You are seeking that linkage by taking the walk with your friend (she has a cap but it is different than yours; it shows a higher octave of linkage). And the baby is mad at getting the treatment because it is being held back because it is so young – it is not ready to emerge on its own.

You are trying through this imagery to pull a whole cadence of something together. And the limiting issue is the cap; the Sufi orientation is the limitation. If you let go of that, then everything is apt to flow a little bit better. It’s only a limitation in the sense of it being symbolic – you are trying to connect to what is natural, and the cap represents your personalization of an idea, which brings with it with your own disharmonies.

You are attempting to tune yourself to better frequencies, making adjustments naturally, on a conscious level, to rid yourself of the disharmonies. So in looking for a way to find a natural flow, you have your own ideas and impressions (the cap), you have something ready to open up that is exciting (your friend), and you have the preventing factor, i.e., that which is not quite ready yet still needs to emerge. The premature baby is the part of yourself that is reactive and is keeping you from the flow.

Ultimately, the dream shows you at a point in time, needing to fully accept the circumstances you are in – letting go of what is preventing you from emerging – before you can pull everything into the same cadence.
