Jeane: In this first dream, you and I are trying to get access to a large circular area. This circular area looks just like the windows of the great room in the condo we looked at in Las Vegas – with the sweeping view – except my sense is that this is a much larger space. I seem to be urging you to see if we can figure out a way to gain access into this area again.

Finally we have an insight into to how to do it: We have to get through an alarm system, with lights, which may even cause an electric shock.

Before the imagery of the dream shifts, we gain access to the whole space, though we may have gotten a bit of a shock in doing so.

Then the dream shifts, and I’m with my sister in a room where she and I live.

John: What you’re doing is you’re taking the visual of something that’s light – the panoramic window view from the condo – and you’re using that as a representation of peacefulness, that either you can hold, or that the space itself maintains.

When we go down on the Strip in Las Vegas, you may not notice it, but I can recognize that the two of us – our combination as a unit – are able to hold a space that enables something to be sustained, or maintained, or protected, or even to evolve.

In this imagery, you’re working with light and you’re working with sound, because you have this whole sense where you’re trying to break through to something. It’s a lot like a plane going through the sound barrier – after a lot of noise it pops through into silence.

Such an energetic shift affects things. You’re evaluating this energetic in terms of what it is that we’re doing, looking into an image of light (Las Vegas) that we’re touching, in some capacity, with our energetic, just by the way we carry or hold ourselves. And that’s affecting this overall image, this overall view.

The interesting thing about Las Vegas is that there’s something that has to be sustained and maintained, and you’re suggesting that there’s something about our presence here that helps to do that. It’s almost a challenge to our own beings to open up, and to ground, and to break through.

In other words, Las Vegas is not necessarily “Sin City.” Las Vegas is a state that can confuse a person if they don’t have the focus and attention that allows them to actually get what’s going on. If a person is continually spun into disorientation, then they will get the ill effects of the coarser energies here, and everything else will be missed.

But light is light, and if you’re able to create the epiphanies, the breakthroughs, the shocks, the light bulb moments (that could be both good and bad because they’re jolts of awareness), if that could be supported, then that’s doing something in a way that works with the space in an interactive way. And all we’re doing is using our presence to make that happen, at a certain level of perception.

Jeane: In my dreams last night, the impression I have is that I am trying to find something that will complete something else, and it is a struggle.

At one point I have a ticket, or something rectangular – it could even be money. Then I have something circular, and I’m looking for the piece that completes it. 

Somebody is constructing something. I’m annoyed with them. Part of my struggle has to do with shapes, and trying to complete the building of something.

There’s a young masculine energy that might be getting in the way, and that’s why I’m annoyed, but I can’t pull out the details. I was working pretty hard at it.

John: The compelling energetic of the dreaming last night focused on trying to cause something to come into cohesion, or balance.

What you are doing is looking at some limiting barrier, inside, and trying to bring that into alignment. This type of dynamic gets triggered when a person goes through sadness or hurt, or experiences an aching heart, compared with a happier feeling of soaring.

In other words, it’s the feeling of great relief or of a breakthrough. It’s reaching a state of peace, happiness, or joy, when earlier the feeling may have been a quality of sadness, or an aching heart. Between these two states there is the search for the missing pieces, which could manifest as to trying to find something, or to break through a barrier or veil, or to bridge a gap that lies in the way.

If you don’t experience the aching heart (to find the missing piece), or if you don’t have the contrast with something exhilarating and joyful, then you don’t have both polarities to work with. One polarity is an up energy and the other polarity is a down energy (the aching heart). If you don’t go in both directions, or take into account both degrees, then you won’t have a dream like you had last night where you are trying to resolve the difference, so that the two aspects can come together.

This is how veils, or barriers, are transcended in life. The depth and the height are brought together, and the inner and the outer are brought together. By reaching an inner depth, one can then reach the height.

It can almost get to the point where it’s hard to tell which is which. This is the process whereby life is nurtured. To learn to live in this zone – to be able to recognize inside oneself the wisdom of those two polarities – and to live in a zone that pulls them together into wholeness… that’s a human being who connects to everything in life.

That’s what it is all about. That’s what is required. It can only happen through the human – we are designed to process in this way. So this is exactly how we’re meant to live in the human body, rather than spending our time figuring out how to either project or protect our own self-identity.

It’s a state of freedom, really, where we can flow freely. After a certain point of maturity, we can stop letting ourselves get smashed in the depths – the aching heart, or despair, anger, or sadness – of whatever our predilection is, which is just a symptom of us being in a contracted state and shut down.

It’s good if we don’t have to do that. But if we do, then we tend also to the opposite extreme, which isn’t a whole lot different, because that sets us up for a fall. When we soar to these unbelievable heights in terms of a sense of wonderfulness, without the other state pulled together and brought into the in-between, then there’s an imbalance in either direction. Either polarity is a flipside of the same coin.

It’s not a whole lot different when everything is working out wonderfully and you’re riding the wave of that, compared to when everything is all compressed and you’re shut down and in contraction. Technically speaking, those two states are simply thresholds of extremes that are flip sides of each other – the polarities of existence.

The veils all fall away when you bring yourself to face a challenge or overcome what lies in between. When you feel how to do that – and the feeling of how to do that is the actual carrying forth of that energetic – you can penetrate the veils and come that much closer to the truth of things.

John: In the first part of this dream (see Alice in Dreamland) what you are dealing with is an impressionability (because everything in our environment affects us as an impression). You are taking a type of impressionability and you are playing with it because it is associated with a memory (the difference between an impressionability and a memory are fairly intangible).

This impressionability can send you off on a detour, but the memory is still there, somewhere inside of you, and it’s trying to get you back on course. It acts as a type of subtle contamination, like sand in an oyster. The challenge in the dream becomes, can you override that bit of contamination, with something that you hear or recognize inside yourself, but that you can’t quite put your finger on?

So we see in your dream that you have this huge pan. It is moving forward with you and you are mixing something in it that you know needs to be properly mixed for it to come out right – for it to be edible.

What you are actually trying to figure out is how to do this in a non-physical way. In other words, the impressionability that sets this whole scenario in motion is the idea that you can lay back and experience something outside of the physical, in which you can just let yourself go on an energetic level, and the guidance that you need will be right there.

Well, you are trying to sort this out, because you are not sure what the heck the idea is – you can hear it and you are letting it bounce around a little bit. As you are trying to sort this out, the dream is depicting what it is that you do grasp about it. You have a listening center inside you that functions as a container and it can echo back into things. The big pan is this container aspect that, as you move forward with it, you are adding and mixing things together. You don’t quite know what it is you are making, but you are listening and trusting that it will come out right.

Even though your mixture is lumpy and, perhaps jelling unevenly, you now have to try to zero in on the channel and on the frequency of things. So you look back – you have a sense that you are conversing with a man behind you. The man represents something that is a little transcendent in its nature, but you find that that is not the right place to be looking. Then you look forward in terms of a connection – you have the cell phone in your hand. Yet even this connection has static and interruptions. You are not quite sure if this connection can give you the right information. By the time your friend is on the line, you realize that that is not the connection you want.

So this whole process has something to do with this pan and what you are cooking up, and your ability to make it come together in some useful (edible) fashion. The dream is showing you attempting to sort out what it is that you are supposed to be, or supposed to take in. The part of you that is working to try to grasp this on an energetic level first looks toward a listening connection that has an aspect in the physical – you are trying to contact other people. You look behind you to something that you know is a little expansive, and then you look forward as if there might be something up ahead that will cause everything to become clearer.

This reaching out is setting the tone; setting the note. It’s very similar to being agitated or affected by something that is causing you to go on a searching expedition to figure it out. You are not exactly fully clear and happy with what you have accomplished, but you aren’t necessarily unhappy with it either. You are still following the thread. You are moving (the pan) forward.

Then the dream switches into the second scenario.
