i00998This dream image is a good example of the different lives within us, as the dreamer is with three different aspects of her self – seen as three people – and is trying to manage the situation even though they each have their own agenda. But what is important to see is that the specific agendas that different parts of us are focused on can prevent us from getting the knowledge we are seeking – even when it is right there in the room with us. This happens because where there is a personal agenda in one part of us, our higher parts can get disconnected from the universal guidance.

Jeane: In the first dream that I remember, it feels like I’m with two other young women my age, because I’m younger in the dream. And, initially, we’re doing something and this seems to be something that has to do with a pattern of breathing. And maybe even a little ritual about that. Something that we do before.

And we develop this little ritual, or whatever it is that we do, that’s also linked into our breathing. And it feels like, initially, that I initiate a relationship with one of the young women, but she rebuffs that after a short period of time.

And so all three of us go and we seem to be camping out in the living room of my parents. Although I think of it more of my mother’s house in the dream And the one that has kind of rebuffed have being in a relationship with either of us seems to have her own little place that she sleeps behind a screen.

The other woman I’m with, or the other young lady I’m with, in order to deal with the loneliness that she creates, or feels, goes out and gets a couple of puppies and creates a nest for them in the middle of the living room.

We’re all in the same room, but there’s a little bit more of a divider between us now. And we’re all continuing with the breathing pattern, although I seem to have a few doubts about it. So as we watch this pattern, and I kind of feel what’s going on, I feel like something’s not quite doing whatever I want it to have.

I look at the fact that there’s been a slight rebuff from one of them, I looked at the fact that the other one’s gone and gotten puppies, but now that it’s getting more towards morning, the puppies are getting active and they’re peeing on the floor. And she lets them up on the couch, and they’re going to pee on the couch, too.

So I’ve gotten something and I’m trying to clean up after them, and it’s like she didn’t have a clue that this was going to start occurring when the puppies woke up. So I’m getting her to help clean up, because she was a little in shock at all this, and try to get the puppies to stay on their bedding.

Then. in this process of cleaning up, and I’m looking and questioning whether this ritual we go through with how you breathe, or a pattern that you have before breathing, it’s working or not, I seem to look through one wall which becomes more just a veil – I can see through, and even go through.

And on the other side is like a Middle Eastern scene. There’s some women sitting on ground, and then there’s an older woman who seems to have some kind of knowledge. And it’s as though I cross through that veil for a minute and I go to where she is, as though I feel like she knows something. And I know her. At the same time we no longer speak the same language, but it feels as though I go to her where she’s sitting, then there’s something that she does, or has, that I’m familiar with. But then I need to come back because it’s like we no longer speak the same language.

John: So this other place that you go, that is kind of a new place that you can now see from the room, or whatever it is that’s part of your heritage, or mother’s house, this other place is where something very, very interesting and expansive has opened up – but when you go there you can’t speak the language anymore anymore, the memory is lost.

Wow, that’s a pretty deep dream. So you started out as three, and what you’re doing is you’re dealing with parts; the energetic is broken into components in terms of awakening, or coming to know or realize something. So it’s a dream in which all of the components are engaged in the process. But in terms of how they’re intertwined, and, how this intertwinement rises up to the next threshold of awakening, is kind of the subject at play here, because something now more needs to occur in terms of a change, or an awakening.

The key part of yourself, the loud part of yourself, the main part of yourself is holding what you think you know and understand and you’re holding it in the presence of an awareness that’s opened a place, so to speak, a presence, so to speak, that has opened for you, in relationship to being in your mother’s house.

So that’s kind of like, that’s where you’re at. I mean, that’s pretty good. You’re starting right there. Then you have another part of yourself that’s a little more independent, that goes around the veil, but still has enough sense to hold into the spaciality presence of the area. And then the other part that stays within proximity, but has to lean on something in order to to be comfortable; in other words it has the puppies and whatnot. And what it leans on, it’s being forced to have to look at, because what it’s leaning on, it’s realizing that there is an acting up that happens by having to lean on something, or be a bit dependent on something.

In other words, there’s still hold-out quality to where that part thinks that it needs something and, and that which thinks that it still needs, acts up; it pees and makes a mess of things, kind of discombobulates things.

So those three parts are catalytic, and that catalytic quality then sets in motion a change, whereby something more can be brought in. So initially when there’s something more brought in it’s like you go from that which is pretty advanced, and now is like a limitation. And that something more now needs to be grasped, or taken in. And suddenly you see through that, into a whole new area.

You’re still getting closer and closer to a one beingness, or a wholeness, but in that process, in that absolute stillness of that process, in which you are becoming this fourth, which is a state of completeness, which is going from the states of these other three qualities to a station, but you’re not able to make that yet a station because it’s still somewhat in a language, or a mannerism, even though, you know it’s more meaningful and much more, it still comes across in a way where it’s hard to grasp.

Now what you have to do when you hit a place like that inside of yourself is you have to stay the course. You don’t go back into noodling with things, you stay the course. And eventually that gets clear because you’re meant to be in this new space and it’s just a whole new thing that you have to contend with now, in terms of awakening.

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.

2-brainIt is a curious thing, and a fantastic thing, that there is always more to life, and there is always more to us. No matter how far we go, or what heights we attain, we have always just reached a new plateau from which we can go farther still. In this way, our systems and the universe await us, always ready to give us the next thing, the next development, the next elevation. We are always unfinished – also a good thing – so our systems are always trying to awaken us to what is newly possible. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, to try to break it down, I get it in bits and pieces, little bites. This starts off with the dream in which I’m standing along the sidelines of a play field. It’s like a baseball field, and these teams are kind of like klutzes out there, as far as I could tell. In fact, it bugs me to watch how sloppy they are.

And so I end up shouting things out because, my gosh, this is absurd. And so it’s as if, in a break in the action, one of the players he’s a very, very tall, kind of big guy, that I’ve never seen before comes over to where I’m at because of my reaction.

I proceed to stay in the reaction, and I’m telling him what I think, and he won’t listen. He just immediately interrupts me by saying that there is nothing I can do about it, and that he could easily give me an elbow and no one would pay any attention. And that I should keep this to myself.

I realize that if he hadn’t interrupted me, and drowned out what I was trying to say, and had just merely responded in relationship to the energy that was being kicked out, it could have been a bad scene.

And so what was this like? Here I am reacting, and yet what was this baseball team really like, because in the next image I see the two teams as they are each leaving the field, first one and then the other. The first team has those Dumbledore hats, kind of lumpy looking, goofy, hats as they move off. And then the other is wearing kind of what you would see in a carnival, you know like a huckster in a carnival, kind of a round hat. And that’s when I realized that there’s nothing I could say under these circumstances that’s going to make any sense, which means that I just have to drop all this is what it amounts to.

See, what this dream is really talking about is the holding onto a type of mood or a tone that keeps one from pulling together all of the pieces, and components, that need to be pulled together in order for there to be this whole other consciousness.

And so then in the next one there is a teacher who is going to instruct a class on how to listen to sound. And he hasn’t started yet, and decides to go to the bathroom. There’s like probably eight or nine people in there. I get the sense that it’s going to start maybe as the precursor of maybe putting your fingers in your ears, and then it’s going to evolve into something where you could see light with your eyes closed.

But when he leaves, a kid jumps up and he says, well, I can do that. And so he comes to the front and then tells everybody to put their fingers in their ears and everything, and when the teacher returns there’s everybody copying the kid.

And then, on another occasion, it’s like I’m upstairs in a building, in other words, by upstairs meaning there’s steps that you go down to the entrance and it opens up; when you come up the steps it opens up into kind of like a bigger area. And, normally, there are students there, and students of this other teacher. And they’ve kind of moved off to one side because something is to happen, and that something doesn’t directly involve them.

And so the teacher is to come, and so rather than wait I start down the steps, going to greet the teacher; it’s a woman teacher. It’s like Elvira. Do you remember Elvira?

And so I come about halfway down, as she comes in, and what’s involved is we’re to go up the steps and then I’m to play her a game of chess. Now, I haven’t played chess for years, so this could be a little absurd and ridiculous. But that’s what’s involved, and as we’re about to sit down one of the students comes from somewhere off to one side and hands me this large book, that’s about six inches or something thick. And so I glance in it quickly and it has dates, and names, and some interesting drawings of something to be, but I don’t know why it was handed to me. It makes no sense to me.

The meaning of this is that last night there are image after image reflecting to a deeper, unknown, subtle beingness within, along with a subtle connectivity simultaneously imbedded. What is going on in each image is this subtle beingness, that is in an amnesic state and is not able to make itself aware to me, is moving around nevertheless. And this is awkward, and I can’t really handle it, because I’m not able to pull it through so it’s like causing a headache.

And then, when you look at the meditation dream, I learn that this has to do with a psyche, and a natural connection therein, that I am not taking on yet. It has been veiled, and this subtle vibration, which I haven’t been experiencing consciously, is seeking to make itself known.
