Posts Tagged ‘the in-breath and the out-breath in dreaming’

com427Real change happens when we act differently when faced with familiar situations. That is a core idea in making a spiritual journey because if we understand, and really believe, that there is more to life that what we see in our culture, then we must begin to act according to what we believe. If we want to “do no harm,” then the process doesn’t end when we stop being overtly mean, it continues into the details of not thinking angry or judgmental thoughts about others, or not respecting the freedom of others to live their lives, or even not letting plants die from lack of watering. Because in universal terms, such acts are all related. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I remember an early dream, one of the problems I had is I had this nice house and it was kind of laid out, you know, like a ranch house kind of like long, lots of gleaming dark wood in it.

And the problem I had, there was this woman, and then even this friend of hers, and when she came over I couldn’t get rid of her. It’s like she didn’t have any sense of how long you could stay. So I’d have to go find her and kick her out, and then I knew there was a time when she was even going to be coming with a friend of hers, but I didn’t want her to teach her friend that kind of pattern.

It was like to me there were certain times that you came, and a certain length of time you stayed, and I might tell her that, I might even holler it at her, but I’d actually have to kind of physically find her and like reinforce it that way, because it’s like she just didn’t get it – and it was making me nuts. That was the earlier dream.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night was being able to understand, handle, and grasp, and adjust to, and relate then as well to various levels, other levels. And so your having to contend with something that you normally may have just suffered along, whenever you, for example, had something that was awkward or inconvenient in your space, meaning the overallness that you have to be at home in, and in charge of, in relationship to how it is that you handle your overall perception.

And so the thing that has happened in the past is that you would subject yourself to, let’s say company or something would come like, say even to this condo, and at some point it would get to be nauseating, or hard to contend with, but you wouldn’t see that at the very beginning. You would only come to know this when something about the environment that you had to balance out, or be in charge of, became unbearable.

It would be like you could make allowances, you could try to adjust, you could try to do this, you could try to do that, this is how you would tend to handle it. But this was a level of beingness that was something you were still trying to catch up, and grasp, and know, naturally.

So what you dreamt involved having shifted to where you were ready and able to contend with all of that inside of yourself, or take on a level of beingness that, prior to the shift, was something that you still had to burn the dross off, in terms of accessing, and reaching, a quality of understanding so that you could conduct yourself with a balance in that regard.

Now what’s so odd and so peculiar is that we catch up with these levels by way of hurting ourselves. We don’t mean to hurt ourselves, we just don’t know any better. And when you make yourself miserable, that miserableness is felt in terms of how it affects the nature of the breath. And it’s at the levels of the in-breath that you access other levels, and so when you do something, or conduct yourself in some way, so that you shut that off, or cut that off, or pinch that off, and you notice that because you have found that you have reached a point of unbearableness in the outer that corresponds, then, to the way that you have sliced the breath, the receptiveness of a balance of the breath, that suffering of that, that imbalance eventually gets to the point where you have an understanding of it. And when you have an understanding of it, you’re able to change it. And when you’re able to change it, then you’re able to accommodate this new level.

And so you were at a point where you were dreaming a new level in terms of the cadence that is meant to be held in terms of the breath – which means you were shifting into this in the dream.

In the outer, you have been hurting yourself, not knowing or having a full grasp of what this was experientially, intellectually maybe, but not experientially. And now you understand it experientially. And so you were dreaming the difference, the distinction that exists in terms of how it needs to be in relationship to the breath, an overallness capacity that has to and needs to be always sustained.

Now, what’s also interesting is that you learn this first by subjecting yourself to the misery. And then that misery creates this loudness whereby you know how it is that it needs to be, or how it is when it’s wonderful, when that misery is gone. And so that puts you into the flip side almost like a rubber band getting stretched into a dourness, or a direness, within, then when that’s released you flip side into a balance and a cadence. And a part of you then is able to embrace and groom what it’s like to be in a proper and appropriate state of balance.

Once you’ve done that, then you have actually suffered yourself into what is a shift, a new level. So then when you dream it, you’re just confirming it, in other words, maybe there’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that that still has to be burned up. Maybe before it would be too loud and you would be too defensive because you’d have this reason, and that reason, whereby you were doing things that were abusive to the environment. But then when you dream something like this, now you’re bringing home and owning the understanding of this new level.

I described the process. The shift is not meaningful unless you bring it right down and function with it in the outer. That’s another important meaningfulness of living in the physical, is that you access this on the inside, and then you learn how to bring it through and live it in the outer. This is not something that you take and suffer, and suffer, and suffer, and suffer, and then when you pass away somehow or another you know better. No, you have to know better, and you have to know how to do that, and you have to live it now.

pic-fractal-9A spiritual journey can be looked at in this way: we move our center of attention from our lower self, i.e., our physical focus, with eating, procreation, and life maintenance, to our higher self, where we begin to access the connections, knowings, and enhancements that are energetically available to us. It is an incremental process that begins with the desire to fulfill the design and promise of our human incarnation. We can see how everything in the natural world has a role to play in the life of the planet; it can be no different for the human, except we also have a role within the unfolding of the universe.

John: My dream dealt with the sensation of deprivation. And this is the condition in which you deem that something you feel to be important is missing.

If a monitor would have been attached to me, what it would have revealed would have been reflectively significant. The feeling that I was not receiving what I dreamed to be important resulted in a mannerism to some sensation, thus I made it seem real. I shortened my breath. In doing this, I deprived myself of the usual oxygen to the system. This created the dream sensation of being deprived. I could report this dream and its condition as a parallel reflection of that which is going on in my environment, and that also has an effect upon me externally.

In this way, a human being is a creature of his outer reflective reality. A human being mirrors this condition, in other words, reflects this condition. Actually you mirror the truth outside of this, but you reflect the condition, a condition that he created when the outer unfoldment swept up his consciousness. In the same vernacular, a human being is able to reach the depths of their beingness to exude, or access, an energetic higher-self knowingness. This is the mirror, unto the outer environment, in which the inner flow’s focus and attention is attentive to the inner spirit energy flow.

In other words, this again removes you from the densities of the senses in terms of objects. This occurs when an inner depth of beingness, called the higher-self plane, accesses the awakened inner state and is no longer under the dense outer clutches of the collective outer consciousness. In other words, the object is to get outside of a state in which the spirit energy is trapped in matter and asleep. And when it’s like that, that’s when you see the objects in matter and stuff that’s trapped. You see that instead.

What I am describing infers a process in which a human being that is inextricably intertwined with the environment is so much more when the higher self awakens. Until then, there is mayhem, and stress, and outer bewilderment – both actual and imagined. The human being cannot experience the hidden inner essence while in this state. The reflective amnesia is simulated and the breath is the witness.

In other words, you get short and then you could deprive yourself of oxygen. In other words, it’s not all there. The spirit energy is choked off. Similarly, when a human being believes everything is wonderful, in their outer life, they reflect this to be so with the breath. Often times this isn’t the case and, if the human being had been unconscious, they would know that by coming in touch with the awakened spirit energy of the universal soul.

When things are given to a person, for example, where things seem to work out, where the teacher smiles because things are given to them, that’s this condition in which you don’t even have the echo of what is wrong and, therefore, you can be in this unconscious state in which it appears to work out.

The point I am making is that a human being is a creature of his conscious and unconscious environment, and it can change when the inner spirit energy is awakened simultaneously upon the inner into outer level. To be awakened is to awaken the higher self and be a force of nature capable, as the crown of creation, to change the story. This isn’t possible if the person is caught up in the magnetic densities of the collective outer.

A human being has to become empty in order to access the inner essence and its innocent nothingness. This is not easy to do because of the magnetic gravity effect that predominates over creation. This density effect causes a collective atmosphere to predominate. The magnetic gravity is what causes matter to constellate and duality to appear to exist. Nothing would exist in creation, i.e. planet Earth, if there was no atmosphere, a direct result of gravity. The empty space is a universe in which the prevailing space is limitless and experienced as a nothingness.

This empty space is alive, and we are that, except in manifestation where we are under the spell and in the clutches of the illusion of matter – a condition caused when gravity predominates. Matter is a density in which the spirit energy is unconsciously imbedded, thereby causing reflective appearances to predominate outwardly.

To live in this state is to only be conscious of the lower self and not have direct access. I mean, it’s not only because you always have some degree of higher self, but it’s primarily conscious of the lower self,  and thereby lacking the access to the essence of one’s being, i.e. the higher self. So that’s the first dream.

creating-matter-from-lightIt’s important for the universe that humans be born into physical bodies, because we are designed to act as agents of the purposes of creation. As part of that role, we are able to connect to higher energies and bring them through, from the energy worlds into the physical world. What that process can look like is when a new idea comes to someone and they create something never seen before. We know we are all capable of that. But what unites us with higher purpose is when we do such processes on behalf of creation, rather than for the betterment of ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next little dream, it’s like I’ve gone and I’ve taken an exam, and I’ve left, but we’re coming back to get our scores. And the teacher says something about the fact that there might have been something wrong with my exam. There was a question about it that the person who scored the exam had.

They send the exams off to be scored, and she wasn’t sure what the outcome was. So I have a little trepidation, and then she hands me my exam and I see that the problem with the exam was that I had shown that when I did the session, from which we answered the questions, that I have recorded it. So I had a recorder attached to the material and, apparently, that was not common.

So they weren’t sure if I was going to have to retake the exam or whatever, but whoever scored it on the other end decided that was okay and gave me an A+. It just wasn’t the usual way it’s done.

John: So now you created an image that responded, that’s in response, to what was awkward about the prior dream. In other words, in this dream, you have both parts again.

You have the part that has to take and go through the motions of things, that’s in the outer, that gets caught in whatever it observes in the outer and, you know, it is having to untwine, and take a test, and go through all of that.

And then you have the part that gets it, that recognizes that underneath this fabric of an outer is a vibration or something, a spirit energy force, that you cannot put down necessarily in words, that’s imbedded as if it’s recorded. And it permeates throughout the space as the innerness behind it all – and you have accessed that.

In other words, that’s what’s meant by the recording. And so when you have that, there’s no way you can be denied entrance. In other words, this is what it takes to go through the door, is you have to have access to this energetic. It’s a sensation of going through a corridor, or through a door. That’s the sensation way of saying it, you know, as if you’re coming from this state of perdition into a whole new world of spirit energy.

However, even though it can be said as having that kind of a directional effect, you can also relate it as having the opposite directional effect. It’s one and the same, it’s just another way of saying it because you have the in-breath and the out-breath, and it takes the two of them to make a whole. So you can do it with the in-breath or the out-breath way of portraying it.

You’re also bringing something through, in need of bringing something through. In other words, in terms of it working from top down instead of going through the door, which means you’ve gotten it, that’s almost like missing a beat there in terms of the top down. What awakens from the top down is the sight of what is meaningful, in other words, about the tax, about the way things are, they just are the way they are. You don’t have to explain it or make it into something. You can let it be as that.

In the consciousness is the awakened process, that fish represent a symbolism of consciousness, so within the flow is the consciousness. And so you’re second dream kind of takes and builds off of the first dream.

What was that final punch line in the second dream?

Jeane: Oh, I got an A+.

John: Yeah, you got an A+ because you recognize the spirit energy behind it all. And so how can they judge you in terms of appearances, because you went behind it all? You were in sync with the flow, the spirit energy flow coming into matter that changed the world.

So, to begin with, in the first dream you were taken in to an involvement and a shaping process of which at a real, real deep depth you’re shaping it, but you hadn’t awakened and caught up with it. And so everything was like a bit strange to you in terms of how do you compute the tax to this? There was some other little thing there that you were supposed to be able to understand and you couldn’t understand it. You couldn’t see.

The fish looked like piranha to you, as opposed to an awakened consciousness, and so it’s kind of like you’re out of place, but you don’t fit in manifestation per se, you know, in its dense way, because you recognize that there’s more to just the skin of things, or the reflection of things. You have seen something that goes beyond skin deep.

And so the first dream portrays the outer overall feminine characteristic as it exists in a state of connection, but not knowingness. And the next dream portrays how there is suddenly the access to the knowingness of the spirit energy, as it exists behind matter, so that when you are responding in matter you’re actually responding, you’re actually bringing through the spirit energy that is intended.
