Banquet_of_Amor_and_Psyche_by_Giulio_Romano

Giulio Romano

No one wants to be called a parasite, but if we look at the arc of human history we can see that we have mostly taken, from the planet and from each other, with little or no consideration to give back. Yet we are designed to contribute to life in a way that is unique among all living things: we are capable of enhancing everything we come in contact with. And that is speaking of energetic enhancement, in our intentions to help, to support, to witness everything around us, and to offer into life our unique gifts.

John: The difference between my dreaming and your dreaming is at least I started off with something that makes life joyous; then I go sci-fi. And that which makes life joyous is very, very important to the evolution and the change in life because you have to have that joyousness as a thread to work with. You can’t walk around dour.

The process still continues if you walk around dour, but it would be nicer if you could walk around elated about things, and touching things, so that it has an aliveness that comes to pass, and then that furthers the overall process – and others are participating in it and don’t even know it, and they’re participating in it because of the fact that we’re intertwined and some of it bleeds off on them.

So in my meditation dream I am at a place where there’s a large banquet reception meal that is being served. Everyone is sitting around, but somehow or another I’m part of the staff, too, and so I am seeking to be involved in a way that does the most for the general overall well being and experience. I am trying to figure out what is the most effective and appreciated way to plug in.

The suggestion is that I come up with a means to provide peaches, and other fruit and side items, that everyone would appreciate, that in and of themselves take up too much room to be passed around and need to be served as something that augments the main course. I come upon the idea that I can prepare a cart, I guess you’d say, or something like a cart, in which there are bowls and stuff on it of cut up peaches and obviously other things.

Peaches is the main example I was shown, but it could be grapes and cottage cheese and stuff like that, that you don’t normally have as part of a main meal that some people might want the peaches, some might want the grapes, some might want some cottage cheese or something. You know, whatever it is that just tends to augment each person’s particular predilection – at that exact moment in time. And it’s just available for them and I cycle around with this cart behind this huge, huge banquet table and each person would have this and it facilitates their enjoyment and joy in the meal. In other words, what I am doing enhances the experience, appreciation, and overall well being of the feast.

The meaning is, is that in this dream I am finding what enriches and enhances the joy of life, because the key to this is things get excited when this is possible. They’re not just eating a mundane meal. There are accoutrements and other things that add to it, that are spontaneous in the moment, that add something neat.

So, we are all here in manifestation trying to make the best of our journey, but rarely do we find the means to make the most of an unfolding expression of service that is done in a joyful way. The highest service is to be able to touch the lives of others in a heartfelt and inspiring way.

In this dream I have found a way to do this for others in a memorable and uplifting way. Not only is this joyous for me to do, it doesn’t take anything away from the well being of anyone else, either. It just enriches the banquet that everyone is partaking of, on level after level, in a quiet, subtle, and natural way.

Hilma_af_Klint_SvanenBeing in service to the whole is an often misunderstood idea. It can encompass the selfless acts of good samaritans, yet at a higher level it is the conscious shifting of energy, from out of balance into balance, or even cleaning up coarse energies and elevating them to a higher vibration. We do this by the aggregation of our energetic life: whatever level of vibration we hold radiates and affects the environment around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: It felt like my dreams were way too wispy to pull out. I know the last one I was having, it felt like I was a woman and it’s almost like I would like I would go into a building, it felt like a bank building or some kind of commercial building, and whatever was going on there it was almost like I tried to draw fire, like maybe there was gunfire going on, or something that kind of diffused the situation inside, that if I could pull the attention, or I could be there, maybe I could shift what was happening.

And it might just be something that was being caused by some little boys playing there, but if I could deflect their attention it might make a difference. And I would leave and then maybe I would come back and try to deflect the situation in another setting. And then go back to someplace like a railroad station. It’s just all really vague, I couldn’t pull it out.

John: So what you were doing was, you were sacrificing yourself, so to speak, to draw the attention of an energetic?

Jeane: it didn’t feel like a sacrifice, it felt more like if I were there I could do something to draw the attention of the situation and help shift it.

John: I think it’s talking about this quality that is natural to the feminine nature that is able to take a situation in which you can hear various energetics that are in the environment, and it can help those energetics see themselves, because it is able to work from a place of, well it doesn’t hold a judgment, it holds an energetic space, so that those energetics get grounded.

In other words, I think it’s saying that you have the ability to take, no matter how disoriented something may be, or disconnected, or unbalanced something may be, that you can go and, in a non-judgment state, because you can see that behind that is something that is valid, that is real, that just can’t catch up with itself. And you can take and absorb the energy of those ideas and awaken or quicken, with your focus or attention, that which lies within.

That then takes what exists in the outer and enables it to see itself as being unbalanced or misaligned. And it actually does more than just see itself as misaligned, I mean that kind of goes away, too, it tends to see how it is that it is meant to be in terms of a wholeness. 

In other words, the parts that are considered askew and astray suddenly make sense, in terms of the equation or picture of things.

It reminds me of this example. It’s a story in which, I believe it involved the Dalai Lama who came to visit this person, who took the Dalai Lama, as if he didn’t know any better, into a bar scene where you had every imbalance or peculiarity going on that you could possibly imagine.

And the Dalai Lama laughed and carried on and acted as if this was of no consequence whatsoever, essentially taking the energetic of that space into himself, but seeing it for how it was on a whole other level.

And so, as a consequence, the Dalai Lama was emanating a quality that wasn’t out of balance with the place that the Dalai Lama was in. Instead was in balance, and therefore balanced out that environment for those who had the ability to inflect inside themselves and catch the reflection of how it really is, vibrationally, to the eyes of the Dalai Lama in a state where it all makes sense.

So, the point being is that, in life, the vagaries and mannerisms and attitudes that you generally see are imbalances that exist that, technically behind that, those imbalances, is something that is real. And that if a person is grounded enough, whole enough, complete enough, accepting enough of their own energetic being, it can take that and see that for what it is – and not get all twisted and reactive and rejective of those conditions.

To be able to absorb like that is what it takes to take something that’s in disarray and bring it back to where that disarray catches up with its own wholeness – or has that capability.

So I think you’re dreaming that and you’re realizing that you can do that to a greater capacity.

Spaceship-brian-fiesFollowing the dream from yesterday’s post (see Call of Duty),  Jeane had this dream image of returning to the alien planet. Because she has everyone’s tickets for the journey, she can be seen as taking on the responsibility of what has awakened in her, yet it’s not without its obstacles. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Then it feels like in the second dream, later in the morning, I’m trying to maybe get back to that planet from wherever I’ve been. And there are several of us that have to go, either I think two other people and myself, and then there’s a young person, I think a man, that’s helping us because we’re running to catch the plane or the transportation to the other planet.

And the people I’m with have gotten way ahead of me, but I realize I have the tickets, which are kind of strange looking, they must be about three feet long and only an inch wide. So I’ve got them all gathered in one hand, and I’m running down this hallway.

And I think this kid who is helping me, maybe had gotten the tickets for me, and then is running with me so we can catch up with the others. And I’m concerned that they’ll get there and they won’t realize they don’t have their tickets, or maybe they’ll get a little lost because we know the way better.

At the last minute it’s like I just run and jump and get on the back of the rocket ship, or whatever, that takes us there, or get inside it. Well, now I’m inside it, and I know the others are there somewhere. Now I have the dilemma of, did we remember our passports? It wasn’t like I was carrying anything, except then I see I have one of those little pods again, those little egg-shaped pods that you carry, that I seem to keep things in so I start opening it up.

It actually looks like a miniature ship inside. It’s kind of mechanical. Sure enough, stuffed in among the gears as I go scrambling through it is my passport, so I figure the others must have their passports, too. Now we just have to remember the way from the airport to wherever we go once we land.

John: Those dreams are easier to understand when you do an all feminine dream, because trying to understand it in the overallness is kind of difficult, because my mind tends to work and look at it in kind of a linear progressed way of looking at things. But you’re presenting a very linear progressed way of looking at things, and so it’s easier to understand.

The theme of course is this sense of following a responsibility, or a duty, in relationship to an understanding that’s awakened inside of you, and you’re having to confront various things that compromise it.

On the first dream, it was the idea of creating another way of rationalizing a self-gratification. In other words, it’s on another planet, so it’s okay. In the next dream, the tickets are like your orders, or your duty, and everything around the tickets and the composure of all of that has an anxiety to it.

So when you get speeded up, or anxious, you again betray the natural sense of being able to sit back and know, and feel, and carry, and recognize what is meant to be. So the key word again is veils, like one of the ways that you veil yourself from the bigger picture is like in the first dream, you veil yourself by creating a rationalization as to why something can exist because it’s about this over here, as opposed to something more direct.

And another rationalization that veils, although you wouldn’t call this word rationalization, you would call it an inability to hold the focus and attention or something, because there’s the anxiety that races out, and then that destroys the cadence, the presence, the auric nature of yourself, which can hear and catch up with and recognize what is needed in terms of tickets, and duty, or orders, or how it is that you’re meant to be in terms of the equation of things. If you get over anxious, then you abandon ship too.

The dream had the same subject in general. It just had within the dream two different ways in which you confine or constrict yourself in terms of hearing, and being with, that awakening, or that sense of greater knowingness.
