Posts Tagged ‘trying to escape in a dream’

downloadWhen we reject, or dismiss, things we have set ourselves up to have to deal with them again in the future. That’s true for us as individuals, and it’s true for us as a civilization. The better process is to accept something as it is, and to then proceed from there, whether that means making efforts to improve it and refine it, or deciding to leave it as it is, or to let it wither and fade away from energetic neglect. Kicking the can down the road may make us feel better, in the now moment, but who knows what that can will come back to us as at a later date.

Jeane: I had a headache, which kind of interfered with my dreaming last night. And what I remember most about the dream is it felt like I was trying to get away, or help some other people get away also.

And we ended up down at the convention center, where we were yesterday, but these four or five people had gone into a different area that supposedly was somewhat locked, and I wanted to get them out, but the only way I could think of getting them out is if I could rope them and pull them out.

I remember that part, and other than that I don’t remember the details as much as I feel like, in the dream, I was trying to get away, and making different moves to get away. But I wanted to get them free, too. I just remember the impression more than the details.

John: Well, what you’re dreaming is the first thing, the first part, in other words, whenever you’re confronted with something that is a bit overwhelming, or is going to take time to understand, or grasp, or catch up with, to absorb, the first reaction is kind of a defensive reaction. Whenever you’re presented with something that – speaking of it just in a great big general sense – is something that you have to, somehow or another, take into account in terms of your overall perception.

The challenge that you’re presented with, and it’s almost as if it’s always an over-the-top challenge, the challenge is to be able to put it into a stillness, to be at peace, or at rest, with it. Stillness is not a place that has a lot of tangibility to it because, with our senses and whatnot, we’re drawn out of that.

Yet whenever anything comes up that is affecting our perceptions in some way, that causes us to have to ponder, or see, and look at where we’re at, in relationship to the situation, our reaction, our tendency, is to do something that has a defense mechanism orientation. And everything that takes and works outside of pure stillness is a defense mechanism reaction.

And that every dialogue, every discussion, everything that goes on has underneath that, ladled underneath that, is a quality of separation that is a defense mechanism way of being. And rarely is there is a situation in which there isn’t something like that that exists.

So, on this level of unfoldment, that’s what the buying and selling looks like now. It’s a reaction that has that as its modality.

So you were essentially dreaming of being in an orientation in which you were presented with the option of letting go of it completely and being able to stay still with it, and not be affected by what was happening, or having to adopt a type of step-back position. And so you were looking at, and it’s important to look at this stuff, too, because it’s part of the path of looking at the degrees and in the areas in which one takes a step-back position. In other words, this is another octave.

See, most people’s understanding of stillness has to do with being able to be quiet, and watching, as if they’re gathering more information and holding a reserve. But there is another level of stillness in which you don’t even do that as a defense mechanism. Can you see how you were watching that?

It’s a good spot to look at. It’s a good way to look at things. What is good about that is that enables you to accept everything, and, when you accept something, then that leads to a stillness – because not being able to accept something in some capacity or another is a step back. It’s a type of defense mechanism.

There are many reasons for us to be chased in a dream, but it’s always good to remember that we are all the characters in our dreams, so we are always chasing ourselves. If we can understand that, we may also understand that there isn’t anywhere to go. We may be able to delay or avoid something, but we haven’t gained anything, and we’ve much more likely lost out on a new potential that would have been created had we let ourselves be caught and a union made. Dreams are an interface where our inner life can speak to our outer life, and it often has useful advice. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my dream last night I’m taking and dealing with kind of a repeat. In other words, I’m trying to see, and identify, that which I am able to detect as being there, but cannot see. In other words, it’s like being able to notice something as a quality that isn’t all out front and in the open. This is a quality where you first of all have to be able to see something at a deeper depth inside of yourself that’s more in a stillness, or at least that’s how I feel that I have to do. And apparently I feel that I have to do this because I’ve been trying to do this for quite some time in a repeat way.

In other words, night after night I’m on this theme. I cannot seem to let it go. I apparently am convinced I can get to the bottom of this, or, in other words, get to something that’s behind it all. A part of me can’t seem to catch up with because of some mannerism, or modality, in one’s nature that keeps one from seeing it.

And so what’s been missing in something like this is a dream. And so the dream I had, in relationship to getting something like this to break through, involves me and another person and we’re searching. We’ve gone into this cabin, this mountain home or something, that’s way off the beaten track of things, and we’re not the owners of this place. We’re kind of like spies. We’ve snuck into this house.

This is a cabin that’s quite isolated. It’s not a place where anyone would go to as a destination. And it’s in the middle of the winter; weather outside is extremely cold. Actually, it’s next to a glacier; there is no civilization.

And so I’m spying, trying to figure something out, trying to get to the bottom of something, when in from the front door and that’s like kind of out the side, that’s an area that looks out to the back we’ll say, and in from the front door the owner has come back.

And so I and my friend, we have to leave immediately, and we don’t have time to dress appropriately for the weather conditions outside. In other words, we don’t belong in the house, and so to escape out the back, if one’s going to try to escape out the back, involves having to deal with this huge mountain – and ordinarily this wouldn’t be something that anyone would try.

Things are just extremely treacherous. Now if I had paused to think about what I was doing I would’ve realized that trying to escape like this is ridiculous, but, because the owner came back the adrenaline kicked in and was pushing me to step out of my comfort zone. Not only was I warm, based upon something that kicked in like adrenaline, or kundalini energy, or whatever you’d call it, but also I would’ve never been able to even think of tackling this mountain, yet here I was going up effortless scaling this. And if I had thought about it I wouldn’t have even tried, and yet somehow I was climbing it. Even though I knew that one slip and it would be curtains, I didn’t pay any attention to that. I was warm, and I was scaling it. I didn’t give it a thought as to where that was going to take me.

And, as I’m scaling this, I keep doing this. I don’t stop. I mean even if for a split second I might actually pause to realize that this is ridiculous, but I also can tell that the owner of this cabin has to know that he disturbed intruders, and he could easily take a high-powered rifle and, until I get to a particular point, I’m within rifle range.

But this doesn’t happen. Apparently the owner has reached the conclusion: why bother? I mean, where am I going? The conditions in this atmosphere will take care of everything in due time.

So, to truly let go is to access an inner guidance which carries a person into the impossible and surreal. This is a place within that a person would not find, or go to, ordinarily, if they thought about things, or took into account the outer appearances.

What I am doing is breaking through a veil that everyone knows is a hopeless situation, or an unacceptable situation, and I should know this as well that it’s hopeless and unacceptable, but I do not. I don’t know because I lack the full picture, but carry instead an adrenaline-charged energetic focus and attention that’s able to persevere.

In other words, if you hold a certain energetic space inside, you can get through anything. You can slice through whatever is there because it all has a meaning, and a reason, and a purpose; even if it is bizarre, it serves a purpose.

So what the dream is kind of saying, so to speak, or suggesting or implying, first of all, I shouldn’t have been able to do what I was doing. I shouldn’t have been able to race outside without the proper clothes on and not immediately get cold. And I shouldn’t have been able to even begin to scale this mountain, yet I was doing that. So it is from a passionate adamancy that a breakthrough is possible.

1ebaDoesn’t it always seem that we feel a bit trapped and frustrated before we make a big breakthrough? Perhaps that’s because we already have a sense of the new territory we want to move into, which makes us even more determined to get there, and that is when we reach inside ourselves for whatever is needed, that last piece of the puzzle, before we can proceed forward. Until then, we feel trapped by our own circumstances. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So last night’s dream it’s like I’m with a group of people, including my husband, and we get captured, and we’re captured and we’re kind of kept in some kind of a camp. And one of the people who’s high up with a group of people that captured us has an interest in me, so I’m kind of playing that a little, just staying a little out of reach, and playing on his interest to buy time because I have a feeling that usually they just kill you. So it’s like any kind of connection with my husband is kept a little hidden.

So, I’m trying to stay out of reach and play this along a little until I can maybe make an escape. And as the dream goes on, it suddenly feels like our group has grown. I don’t feel quite as much at risk of being assassinated. I’ve been gathering information and I’ve actually, through information I’ve gathered, been able to come up with a map so that a group of us, if not all of us, can escape from the camp.

And for some reason I’ve gone to what almost looks like an amusement park, but it’s actually for exercise, too, and there’s a contraption there that I get on that I feel like will help me exercise and it’s a really odd contraption. You like buckle yourself in and then it takes you really high in the air and maybe it flips you over, and it may either have you dive down on your side or dive down and come up the other side, and then it swings back. It’s very complex. But one of the motions, I don’t quite like diving down just looking straight down, I tend to turn on my side or something to cut it a bit – and somehow I kind of drop the map.

And there’s a woman I’ve never seen before that finds it, so I get down off the contraption and I go over and I take it back right away, but I realize she saw it. Not only that, I realize she looks like no one I’ve ever seen before, and so she makes me aware that there’s another group of people that have been captured at some point, that have a community somewhere on this world that I never knew about.

And I can tell they would like to escape, too, but our escape is planned for the next day so we don’t have time to find her and her community. I just know that she had a glimpse of the map before I hid it again. And I kind of regret that, but our plan is for us to escape the next day and by now we’ve got the responsibility to get the whole community out of there. So I wish I had time to stay and maybe map out where this new group lived so we could all escape, but there doesn’t seem to be that feature.

Well, the next day is the day we’re supposed to escape, so it’s almost like the people that normally monitor us are back in their own village more that day so that’s why we’re going to get into the woods and use our map and get away. Well, first we have to make a stop and it seems to be at the home of this Chinese master, or Oriental master of some kind. You can’t really tell him what you’re doing, but I think I just stopped briefly at his house before we go on to where we go next.

We’re still disguising our intent, but with a large group now, just when we should really be getting into whatever transportation we’re using, or getting hidden, suddenly the children have to go to the bathroom. I kind of even get annoyed with the mother and pushing her and saying you know, we just have to do this now and trying to hurry people along.

Then I go outside and I see that across the road where a fence is maybe there’s a graveyard or something, and some of the women from the enemy camp in a sense are out there for some reason that day and they may see us. So I’m trying to disguise this so they don’t see us, trying to get everybody loaded in some kind of a vehicle, but they’re all scattered out a bit.

And then I notice when I peek around the corner that they actually have some spies from the enemy camp up in trees, so if we don’t get anybody kind of hidden in the vehicles and stuff were kind of… this whole thing is beginning to look kind of impossible to get away.

John: You’re exploring the Moses side of your nature. It’s actually said that within a person’s psyche or synapses, or however you would describe it, that they carry the various levels of the prophet, so to speak. They carry Abraham, Adam, Moses, Christ, Mohammad, Buddha. You know, you carry all of this sort of stuff somehow or another in your nature as an expression of something that is part of your overall wholeness.

And in the Moses side of your nature, you’re looking for spaciousness. In other words, you’re feeling pinned in, or trapped, and that you have to break free – or as Moses would say, “Let my people go” or something. You have to break free. And in breaking free you have to deal with all of the issues that come up with spaciousness, in a spaciousness, in terms of establishing a spaciousness.

In other words, to start off with it keeps growing and growing and growing. What is the wholeness even because even issues and questions of a personified spaciousness and then there’s the complexity as you dwell upon what has to be done where you get overly indulgent in terms of the concern of this, and the concern of that, which then can start to collapse the spaciousness because there are guards, there are spies, there are this, there’s that.

So it’s an interesting way of looking at a side of yourself that is waking up, and just like in your previous dream there was the limitation of spaciousness in terms of being able to take on the power. In this dream you’re again able to feel the heebie-jeebies and the impingements of the vibration of things when they’re trapped in a lack of spaciousness, or feeling the whole characteristics of that.

Yeah, it’s like the Moses side of yourself was the thing that popped in. It’s like retelling the story in a whole other way.
