Posts Tagged ‘we are all the characters in our dreams’

woman aloneWhen we struggle, we often like to talk things through with our friends and family – to get the advice of those we trust, but also to get a different perspective from our own. Our dreams allow this same process, offering us advice on very specific aspects and threads in our life. In this dream, Jeane gives advice, to another part of herself, about a relationship. But the relationship is with an inner energetic that wants to be set free. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Yes, I actually have like three other little dreams there, and they all felt linked together to me, like one felt sequentially to the other. 

So, in the next dream, having left French Canada, I’m kind of on the road, and I come to this small town. And immediately there’s some kind of eye contact or something, with a man, that I make that, you know, we’re attracted, we want to be together, but he’s in a relationship. And he hasn’t separated himself from that relationship yet – although he wants to.

And it feels like I’m kind of going back, and forth, and I go into a building. And when I’m in that building, rather than him come, the woman he’s in a relationship with comes. And because she comes, I’m writing down on a piece of paper things that one can do that improve a relationship – which she can take. If he’d come first, I might have done something different, but she’s come before he has.

And then it feels like I leave that place, and the dream kind of shifts to a different tone. 

John: So in terms of trying to catch up with what it is that is hidden, whenever there is something that’s an imbalance in one’s nature, the outer world sets up – because we live in an expansive and contractive capacity, and within the parameters of a type of gravity – there is a magnetism that is set up to try to break through the complex of things. 

You see this all the time in terms of relationships, where a person will be attracted to another person that carries a kind of an opposite quality, or something, that somehow or another is a blind side in terms of their nature. And, generally, what they carry is a blind side to that person’s nature. 

And so you get into this kind of correspondence that can create a magnetism that pulls them together. However, because neither is really directly facing the complex, per se, there is an attempt to make a projection handoff. And in times when this coming together creates a different kind of resonance cohesion, in terms of the outer life, and that comes out, or is reached, or is touched, you can have the most horrendous of complex reactions that show that what is not being faced is so, so, so traumatic. 

Well you, somehow, in other words I’m describing the dynamic, but you understand the dynamic. In this dream you actually understand the dynamic, because what you are doing is you are, so to speak, looking and talking to yourself in a way, in other words because it’s another woman, it’s not something estranged as the opposite. You were looking at another woman, or basically looking at yourself, and you’re able to counsel yourself in terms of how it is that you need to be in order to make this sort of awakening more conducive. 

In other words, psychologically, you could say, find a balance or harmoniousness instead of it being something that is so traumatically over the top that you have to repress it to keep from cracking up. So that’s very interesting. That’s quite a step right there.

_dog_1Remember when you were really afraid of doing something, and avoided it, and avoided it for the longest time. Then, once you finally got up the courage and did it, it became your absolute favorite thing – and you couldn’t believe you’d waited so long. Spiritual development is like that: it can seem intimidating to come face-to-face with inner aspects of ourselves, but, once we do, it opens up a whole new world for us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just had parts of two dreams that I remember.

In the first dream it feels like I’ve gone to a house that’s a little bit more in the country. When I go in the house they have a big dog in the yard that’s a little intimidating, so I stay in the house and keep the dog out in the yard.

But it feels like before long the feeling I have is that what the dog’s actually doing is it’s kind of protecting me from another big dog that’s out there and I’ve made friends with it – so I can approach the house and I’m not afraid of the dog anymore.

That’s the impressions I remember from that first dream.

John: So it’s a dream about yourself going outside of your limits, or of your conceptual limits, from an environment that you’re normally in, into another place that involves you having to confront something that, to begin with, you’re not sure about how that fits in. And in taking and contending with that you find out that it’s a friend, it’s a part of yourself that’s hidden, that’s unknown, but it is actually a part that you have to access, that you have to come to grips with.

You wouldn’t have been able to get to this other place – that is also you – if you didn’t avail yourself of this friend. And when you finally realize the importance of that, you realize that there are still other forces because you’ve extended yourself outside of your comfort zones, you’ve expanded your consciousness, and there are still other things that appear to be a bit much that could interfere with your well being – and they also are shaped and placed in a mannerism as something that you will have to overcome. They’re dogs, and dogs symbolically are our friends, even though it’s something that you haven’t yet learned how to awaken.

i2wsesTo carry a tiny person in one’s pocket, in a dream, and protect them as one moves about, is a good illustration that we are all the characters in our dreams. Because we know this is not a real life image – it’s not someone that is known in the outer world. It is a character that represents a still vulnerable aspect of the dreamer, and it is important for the waking self to provide the safety that is needed. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, in the next dream, I’m traveling, walking actually, it feels like to get to where I’m going, and there’s a place where I’m going to stay for a few days. And, as I approach this place, and I can look down, I see several structures. There must be like a gateway when you go in.

And it’s like, if you’re traveling, then they’ll assign you to where you stay for the night. And I’m going to be staying, I think, in building D maybe. And I look down, and I see that the main people that live there, that run things, they live in something that used to be a building that belonged to the Hearsts, it’s almost like a Hearst Castle, but they’ve gone a little bit to ruin – but it’s still quite elaborate.

And then beyond it are three more institutional-looking buildings that are a little more identical, and those are buildings B, C, and D. And I’m looking at how rugged this little wooden path is that goes, and how much further it is than I had thought it would be. So I’m kind of taking a breath because this just going to spend a few nights somewhere is turning out to be a bit more challenging than I realized.

But then as I pass through, it must be the building of the family that’s running things, I don’t remember all of the exchanges that happen, but somewhere in there they have a younger sister. And she seems to compress herself into something that’s only about so many inches big. And she’s compressed in the middle of it, and I stick it in the pocket of my dress, and she’s hidden, then, and travels with me as I go to where I’m going.

And I’m kind of weaving in and out among a lot of the people there, including she has a number of brothers and mostly sisters, and her mother. The others seem like normal, except they seem to be running things and they seem to have some magic about them. And so you’re kind of trying to stay hidden in their presence, and I’m definitely hiding her.

As we travel about, it’s like I do have some interactions, but I don’t recall a lot them. And definitely I avoid the mother because the mother has this kind of long black hair and you can be a little scared of her. I even feel like that girl I’ve got in my skirt is hiding from the mother. But after we’ve gone so far out, and then we seem to be coming back because of something that’s going to happen, then I feel like there’s a ceremony we all need to perform in. And for that, I’m going to have to wake her up and feed her. And then it’ll become obvious that I have her.

But I have to wait until the right time to feed her, and wake her up, and bring her out, and she has to want to come out, too, and then she can take part in this dance, or ceremony, but it might even become a battle – you don’t know which – it just has all different kinds of feelings about it.

So then I reveal, first to one of her sisters where she’s at, and I think she comes out. I remember seeing the mother in the line there somewhere, too, whatever was occurring. And I think that was when I woke up.

John: What you’re doing is something that is a positive subrogation of energy. Most people, when they subrogate energy, they get lost in the subrogation.

So what do I mean by that? Well, usually, in life, people are overwhelmed by things that are in front of them, by the appearance of things in front of them. In other words, they’re overwhelmed by how they have to live, and what kind of job they have to have, and all of the little nuances that just go along with basic human existence.

And let’s say that that is a .7. And then from .7 to 1.2, what opens up for you is the recognition that this is something that has a certain wealth effect to it. In other words, it’s a hidden energy. It’s the Hearst family; the Hearst family has a wealth over all kinds of things. And so what that is, is we’re talking a .7 to 1.2, that’s in the out-breath. There’s something coming down into life.

You don’t necessarily bring it down into life, instead, you come to recognize that there’s something deeper in that process of an awareness that is important. In other words, you see all the outer nuances of power and wealth and stuff like that, just like you can see all of the outer factors and features of a lifestyle that people have, and how they can be more or less caught up in that.

But you come to know that there is a greater meaningfulness behind it, which is that the greatest saint could have also become the greatest dictator, or something. Just like Siddhartha, the prophecy of Siddhartha, was he could either become a very great king, or a very great saint. And he left his kingdom when he realized there was more going on than what was being carefully spooned out to him.

So in this .7 to 1.2 side of yourself, you have this hidden essence, some part of you actually knows that there’s something more to all of this, within the family of wealth and such, there are the more grown-up aspects of things. In other words, they’re not small like this one little thing is.

What is most precious, what’s the secret substance to all of this, is maintaining the recognition of this thing that is most, most precious inside, which is this little, little thing that you hide in the folds of the dress that you wear. And you carry that, you hold that, that’s a quality that you maintain inside of yourself in spite of the fact that you’re in the .7 to 1.2 out-breath coming down.

The day arrives, however, when something switches, and you start to go in, go up. And when you start to do the in-breath, it causes then something to become pulled more together, more made known. You’re going into the angelic side of yourself where you experience this part of yourself more out in the open. You can show the other parts of yourself how they can see, and come to know, this little part hidden inside.

So what you’ve done is you have conquered the two components, the two flip-side components that are identical – meaning between the high in the breath in-breath, but you’ve started with the high in the breath, coming down, out-breath.

Somehow, when you put this together with your first dream, there is the recognition that in order for all of this to be understood, in terms of a greater history of your beingness, that has pent-up qualities, is that you have to give something to the masculine in order to be able to bring this thing down into a point where you catch up with these hidden elements of the two flip sides of yourself.

When you’re able to bring a clarity, like from the first dream, to the situation, which is where you give something to the masculine which is the clarity aspect. And when you give that something to the masculine it causes a shift to somewhere else. That shift to somewhere else, that’s revealed in this dream, is that you’re now able to introduce to a greater overallness of your being.
