Right from the start, in this dream, a change is set in motion. And whenever we are facing change it can be precarious for a while, so here the dreamer finds herself on a roof and needing to be careful not to fall off. And what’s ultimately important is that the change happens evenly, or in a balanced way. Once that is accomplished, our dreamer can come down from the precarious setting and move back out into the world, which poses issues of its own in terms of being able to fit in with the new changes.

Jeane: I had a dream that I almost felt like I’d had before. And it’s like I have a boyfriend, and I’m going to be performing something in the place where we both live. 

In order to get ready for the performance, I have to dye my hair. In order to dye my hair, I go up on the roof, it’s almost like in the attic roof. So I have to be really careful as I’m putting stuff in my hair, and combing it through, and trying to get it right to change the color of my hair, that I also watch my balance on the roof so I don’t fall off. 

And his mother, for some reason, is jealous of this whole process and is trying to sabotage it. She either wants me to get my hair color uneven when I change it, or I have to just be careful with my balance because it takes both your hands to put things through your hair.

And she thinks I’m getting it uneven, which makes her kind of cackle a little bit. But I can see what she’s doing. So just about the time she thinks I’m having problems with it, I kind of do something where I can actually pour something over my head and get the hair color on evenly and comb it through it. 

But then when I come back from the area where I’m doing that, and I go up the steep part of the roof, I do get a little vertigo, and I do have a little problem. But I manage to keep my balance and I manage to get the hair color on even, and I know that she’s kind of upset with that. 

So then when I come down from the roof and I have to go somewhere, there seem to be rules about how you get back out in traffic. And I’m trying to kind of read the traffic right so that I can kind of get back into the flow and get to where I’m going. That’s kind of difficult just because of how the rules are about how you get back out into traffic. And that’s all I remember of the dream.

John: So, it’s a very good dream. And to understand it it’s good to put the question that is being answered inside yourself. It’s good to bring that question out. And then the question almost makes the whole dream make sense. 

So the issue, maybe I can’t quite say the question, but the issue is, when circumstances are imposed upon you, or there’s an influence upon you, by other outside conditions that are attempting to direct, or alter, guide, understand, however you want to say it, how you are, the dilemma is that this can throw you off. This sort of thing can throw you off, especially if, somehow or another, it has an effect or an influence upon how you are that is able to go over the top of how it is that you’re unfolding. 

It’s almost as if you’re taking as your scenario, and looking at the principles and practices, so it’s as if you’re taking and you’re giving it a shot. And so you’re attempting to take and make those kinds of changes in the lifestyle that you’re in. And you’re finding it to be unnatural for you when you rely upon some part of a sense of your own. And that sense could be a part of what gets shaken and jarred in terms of effect upon you. But still, you don’t get overwhelmed by that effect. You learn how it is meant to be distributed, in terms of your makeup and your being. 

But still, knowing how it’s meant to be taken in, or how that is to affect you, or impact you, it still requires that the effect be such that you take steps inside of yourself. You take what all of that is about. You take that in a way in which you don’t discombobulate yourself to the point where you could go haywire and fall off the house, or something like that. You learn how it’s meant to be mixed, so that the colorization that occurs is something that you can work with. 

Now, this has to be put into action then. In other words, what we’re talking about is the process of opening up. And so you have to pay attention, and you have to know yourself. And so the effect that has caused you to then take on a particular overall colorization, or changed demeanor, to see how that works – it has to be put into life, it has to come down into life. 

And, in order for that to work, you have to incorporate from what has taken place, it has to be so natural with yourself that some part of yourself has caught up with it, and is caught up with how it is that you are – it’s not based upon some sort of redirected personality or something that is the effect of something from somewhere else, as an overriding influence upon yourself. You have to have caught up with this as yourself. 

The catching up with this, the recognition of this, as yourself, you have to utilize the changes that have occurred upon yourself to be able to read what is right for you, and what is not right for you.

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.
