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 know you’re somewhere in the background, but my focus is on two, feminine, winged figures or entities. One’s quite large and standing there, and she has wings. The other one is similar is shape but smaller.

I’m just trying to bring them together. I’m trying to get these two angelic figures together in some way, by working with the breath. That was the first image.

John: There is the idea – long-held by many spiritual and religious belief systems – that we all carry in our nature a connection to guides – angelic or other energetic entities – that we’re able to bring close to us, both internally and externally, depending on how we are in our lives.

Such a connection has to do with a certain type of rootedness within Creation – meaning being more closely connected and aligned with the purposes of Creation, instead of the ego-based “purposes” of the human such as money and power.

In other words, these angels and entities are here for us, but in some ways our relationship with them is limited by our own thoughts and actions because an angelic essence can’t come close to us if our energy radiation is hostile to what it is.

By that I don’t mean whether we believe in them or not, it’s similar to the idea that none of us would go to a bad part of town, where we would feel uncomfortable or in danger. Who and what we are energetically determines how theses essences and connections can be with us.

Part of having a rootedness in Creation is to be able to give anchor to such guides and essences into life – into the world. That is part of the process that the human was designed to do. We need that rootedness as a safety from becoming swept away by energies that are too high for us to contain.

So, in your dream image, you are shown a larger effect and a lesser effect. You have to somehow consolidate these, bring them together, as powers or forces of your nature. Then you can effectively work with it (bring it into Creation), rather than just have it sweeping over you in an unconscious way.

The images are portraying the effort of bringing them together as an aspect of your lightbody, and as a realization of the significance of this in terms of how it reflects a masculine aspect of your self that gives access to it.

I’m actually not quite sure how to say it because the feminine carries the presence that’s able to bring it and hold it together in a state of completeness, as a container of one’s overall being, but there is something about the quality of the masculine that enables you to be able to sort this out and not get diffused by this energetic effect.

It can be a problem for many people when they gain a connection to these energetic forces (of a greater beingness of themselves), that they then don’t have the proper grounding to sustain it. In order to properly, or truly, realize a higher-self quality, it needs to be brought down and through, into Creation. When it is not properly grounded within, a person runs the risk of being overwhelmed by it.

That’s what you’re working with there. You’re trying to figure out how to take these guides, or these forces within, and make them a valid, sustainable inner aspect that you’re able to carry and embody as you go about in Creation.

To do that, you have to see how the large and small come together, how they work together, how they’re part of the overall that also takes into account the denser aspects in Creation. In other words, carry both the inner and the outer together, or you can’t actually carry either of them in their proper way.
