Posts Tagged ‘we connect to creation through our inner guidance’

The_key_to_happiness_by_kuschelirmelSpiritual development requires letting go of the way we identify personally with the events in our lives, which means we have to give up our hope of controlling events around us. We can move in that direction by holding an inner space within us, connected to our awareness of the overall. In doing this, we can be guided by the grace of something greater, rather than struggling to do everything on our own. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In this dream, it feels like not so very long ago, but long enough that I’ve adjusted, that maybe I’ve separated from a relationship. I have a cousin or a girlfriend who has come over to visit me, and she also seems to have separated, but more recently, so she’s still a little in that kind of stage you’re in when it’s a recent separation.

When it’s time for her to leave, I drive her home, and even though this is a cousin actually on my dad’s side of the family, she’s living in my mother’s mother’s home. I go in the house with her and she’s staying there, and it feels like a girlfriend of mine from childhood is staying there too.

And then a man comes over, who is recently separated from a relationship, and the three of them are talking but, because it’s late at night, I’m actually kind of tired so I have kind of laid down with my head on the table to rest awhile before I drive home, listening to the conversation.

I know there are some things that I could even add or counsel them because I’ve been separated longer than they are, and also having been a therapist I kind of know some of the stages people go through, but I just keep my mouth shut and listen.

At one point even a girl comes to the back door, a young woman. She must not be appropriately dressed because she comes to see the guy, or talk to him, or maybe she just is looking for something, I don’t know. He goes to talk to her for a minute and it seems like when I look at this gal it’s almost like a comic book in that maybe because she’s so skimpily dressed that they’ve censored it, you know, like there’s a band across maybe where her eyes are, and there’s another band across maybe where her top was because she wasn’t wearing much.

Whatever she is wearing is black, and I figure that’s just part of the adjustment the guy is going through right now. He talks to her for a few minutes. Then I decide that it’s time for me to go home.

Well, when it’s time for me to leave, no one walks me out to the car, and it’s gotten really dark out. So as I walk out to the car, suddenly I’m having a little bit of trepidation because I’ve shut the door behind me and I can’t remember if I have a key to my car.

Then I decide my key is in my pocket, but then what if I didn’t lock my car and someone has gotten in it? I just suddenly am having that trepidation, and I wished they would have walked me to my car because it’s so dark out and I think that’s when I wake up.

John: Your dream is about this idea or process, that one has to have, of a kind of stability. And so you’re shown, or required I should say, to have to compare that which is able to be in sync with a stable old change that you’ve learned to abide by, which has grounded you and rooted you in a kind of balanced overall. Versus that which is volatile in nature, which is ungrounded and therefore lacks a certain kind of energetic prudence.

And the nature of that which is recent, meaning causing you to go through reactions based upon something that has become used to a habitual past, is that you are finding yourself having to act more out of holding on to habits than you would be reacting if you had learned to carry the conditions as they change.

And so the dream is a dream that’s trying to show you how to understand, for yourself, the importance of maintaining an overall presence that supersedes the comfortabilities of the control on the day-to-day level.

In other words, you are being required to feel the difference of how you can have the day-to-day variabilities, which can cause your attention to lurch forward into this day-to-day variabilities, and you’re comparing that, on an energetic level, with what it’s like to have the stability that comes with a long-term, overall rootedness, which has become natural and accepting and has found the space of balance over time because it has given itself permission to take on a Wholeness as opposed to a reactionariness.

You’re feeling all of that, and of course you’re putting this into the context of something in which some part of you is saying to yourself that you know that whatever one does in the short-term is disturbing.

Then the dream progresses, because you’re all parts of the dream, and so you then become a person who has been affected, and been in a household or in an environment, in which you’ve been hit by, or affected and impacted by, the herky-jerkiness of habitual energy that is trapped and caught in its nuances. In other words, that doesn’t have a sense of overall presence and balance.

And what that does is, that creates a shorting out so that you lose your sensibilities. You lose the sensibilities at the time that you’re in such a house, and the disturbance that that creates continues, so that when you go outside of the house, or basically when you then have to function in the overall with the presence, you can find yourself disoriented too.

And this is a tricky dream because on one level it shows the importance of the presence in terms of maintaining a Wholeness of yourself, and on the other level it shows the importance of, well, it shows that you actually lose the key to your own being – if you don’t hold a space.

And of course you leave that space and try to go outside, instead of being able to hold the space, and balance that space out – inside the house. So then when you go outside, and because you have given up on the idea of holding the space because you have a sense and you know that this has got to end badly for people that don’t know how to settle back and allow things to adjust, so when you then go outside, which means it’s your way of moving away from something like that, your key to understanding and holding a benefit for the Whole was in staying in the house, when you go outside to try to get in the car, or to distance yourself from something that’s awkward and imbalanced, you can’t find the key.

You find the key by being able to contend with what’s thrown in your face, because in the dream you’re also the part that has the rootedness, the understanding of the presence, that’s longstanding. And you know that about yourself, but you also then have the parts of you that are reactionary to something that changes, and affects it, which creates an immediate disturbance because it causes you to lose a connection, or threatens you in terms of losing a connection to that which has the grounded, rooted composure.

And so if you fight to maintain the composure, and move away from something like that, or find yourself leaving and feeling glad and free that you’re able to leave that sort of thing, as if it’s going to be better, that sort of abandonment, without you having absorbed it, and taken it in, and solidified it, because you do have the deeper center inside of you that can do that, will leave you disconnected.

In other words, mentally speaking, the idea of pulling out of a confusion and away from a confusion tends to make sense, rationally speaking, but energetically speaking, it causes you to remain lost, or to get further lost, because you’re abandoning some part of yourself that you’re meant to be able to take in and contend with, because you have – deep, back, in a depth of yourself – you have the understanding and the abilities to hold that as part of an overallness, with a respect, and a grounding that you know you can trust, that has run the test of time.

But in the dream you’re seeing the foibles of things that are short-term. You’re feeling the long-term effect. You required to take and hold that. You’re given that choice.

When you take and inadvertently think that you can move away from the other, because you know that that can’t end well. In other words, you have your understanding in terms of relationships that are freshly wounded, that they tend to gravitate to woundology decisions, as opposed to grounded decisions, and so you come to the conclusion that you don’t need to go through that, you don’t need to contend with that.

But the dream scenario is a scenario in which you carry a soundness that you’re refusing to apply, and so when you refuse to apply the soundness to the need of the situation, and you move away from it instead of being there for it, you yourself then lose what you had. You lose your key. You too become, then, scattered and confused, because you failed to meet the challenge.

2worldsContinuing the theme from yesterday’s post (see The Burden), on a spiritual path we become quickened by the energy of our inner connections. At that point, it becomes an issue of maintaining that inner access, or holding that energetic space within in us, so that we become a conduit, or a change agent, or a bridge between two worlds. This enables higher energy to come through us and into manifestation – into life. This is a high aspect of being in service to something greater than ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So when you’re speeded up in the morning, or when you’re animated in a particular way where it’s like you are on adrenaline or something, and you’re just really quickened and everything is just snapping, and your husband is saying, Jiminy Christmas, what did you do, have three cups of coffee this morning, instead of one, because you’re going too fast for him?

That’s okay. That’s okay. In other words, don’t allow yourself to be chained again. Just realize that yes, you may have to figure out how to polish and temper, but don’t let go of that speed.

And learn to speak with the energetic in a way so that it doesn’t set off the denseness, the loudness, or the denseness quite so loudly. This guy that I know downstairs was trying to explain to me… In other words, he in his day was the expert around the world of a certain kind of way of operating on the head and around the mouth and all of that area.

And he would get these patients from around the world, and he would tell them like for example if they started on an antibiotic, that yes, you are going to feel good if you take it for three days, but you’re supposed to take it for seven or ten or whatever it is.

And he said the way he would try to get them to understand it is he would say, well, the antibiotic has wiped out all the women and children in the first three days, but the old guys they’re still there. They’re the harder ones to get rid of, and so you feel much better having wiped out 70% of it, but you still have that 30% and you have to take that antibiotic all the way through to get the last ones.

And the problem with those last ones, and then he explains to me how a virus works in relationship to the reproduction of the cells, and a virus reproduces and reproduces very, very quickly, and a cell it takes a while for it to reproduce. And so the mutations are more likely because of the nature of the density of things in terms of the way a virus is constantly imposing itself.

So his point being is you have to hold the energetic, you have to hold a particular quality, in order for it to be effective. And the holding of that, in this example, just take the antibiotics all the way through. Holding in this example is the recognition that your body has something imbedded in it that has a clarity to it.

And then you have the physicality of the viruses, which are everywhere, that can strip you down. And you can cater your attention into that, and it will tear you down. Or you can have yourself in a kind of energetic that is at the essence of everything, and this will help maintain a better well being for yourself.

I thought that was an interesting way of looking at it. I had never thought of that.

Ann: Boy. My goodness. That is an excellent explanation isn’t it? Wow.

John: It’s an excellent explanation. When you’re out and you’re working and you’re around somebody that is reacting to how it is in terms of the way you’re talking, and the way you’re acting, you have to be careful about this, but it’s kind of like a virus from them that’s attempting to pull you down and mutate you back into the collective.

But at the same time you can’t reject what they’re doing because, where is the masculine principle in terms of its raw energy prima materia that you have to take in and absorb and transform, which also is important for the change agent in life?

That’s running on a counter thread. What you have to do is you have to be kind of a soldier of both worlds, somehow. In other words, it’s like if something is agitating you, you don’t go into a tiff, and adopt an attitude or a mood, secretly try to backstab it, because that is not something you get away with because it’s known on an etheric level. It’s felt on an etheric level.

You have to embrace and accept it as it is, so that it can have the space, to catch up with the speed. But if you don’t like the reaction, and now you’re attempting to do something, or make a point about the reaction, some subtle hint or mannerism in your nature trying to get a dig in or something, and doing it in kind of a serendipitous way, instead of an outward way, just by a mannerism and way you carry yourself or something – that is fighting the darkness, so to speak, and intensifying it, instead of winning it over with a sweet touch.

So this is all correlated to the speed, if you think about it, and going fast inside yourself and yet, at the same time, knowing how to do this that’s more on a proximity to light, knowing how to do this, or learning how to do this, so that you’re not a wrecking machine either, because you have no right to step on anybody else, to violate their space.

So how do you do this? This is where the skill comes in, or the consciousness comes in, to know how to bring it through in such a way so that it is graspable and understandable.

Now when you’re in this vibration, you’re convinced, you have convinced yourself, that you can make this happen for them, that they will get it, because you’re drinking it, they can drink it. This is a big fallacy that one gets caught up in, and then you lose the compassion. You lose the care. You lose the graciousness.

And the next thing you know, you’re pounding and they’re fighting back, and now everybody is stabbing each others’ heart. And then the veils come in, and there is no clarity about anything.

So this is why it is said, in Sufism, to learn to talk with the energetic. When you learn to talk with the energetic, and learn to say the first thing that comes vibrationally up, you don’t sit and think about it and measure your words to make sure everything is just completely copacetic.

And so as a consequence, you can say things that aren’t exactly true even. However, what’s so interesting is, you will get taught. You are going to get taught, if it’s not true. You may get corrected.

Like for example, I used to think that the body filtered out ultraviolet and ultra infrared, and the reason why it filtered both of these two extremes of the spectrum out, was because they both had an effect upon the body that it couldn’t handle, that tore it down.

Actually, it’s they’re both filtered out, they are for different reasons. I’m right on the ultraviolet. You know it’s a transcendent energy that’s too much for the body to handle the vibration coming in. It has a radioactive quality to it.

But the reason why you filter out the infrared is, it works too much with a density and a magnetism. You don’t want to turn yourself into a rock, so to speak, or get too dense.

A person factors out the little red tends to factor out infrared because it’s working more with the iron element inside of matter – as a gravity.

And so an example of this is the MRI machine. When you go into an MRI machine it does not work very well with bones because bones are dense, and everything is frozen solid and doesn’t have the translucent quality as much as the flesh.

And so it’s better to use an MRI machine or an x-ray. MRI works by cutting, taking it in slivers and breaking the slivers down and creating an imagery that way, to see what’s going on, because the motion is more set in a bone.

An x-ray is somewhat similar, a little bit different description, but there’s something besides an MRI that takes the slivers and an MRI I guess is the full body scan. And it works with the gravity of the iron in your makeup of your being, and it is able to pull that and move that inside of the flesh, and therefore get an image of that and can see things that normally wouldn’t be visible and seeable.

That’s working with gravity. It’s reading things by the ability to attract the iron in the blood and the flesh, which is hard and can’t be quite done in something that’s bone.

And that’s why you have to take the slices of it, or you have the x-ray. The slices of it is called something else. An MRI is I think the full-body scan. I forget what they call it when you can take slice ribbons and then put it together as a picture, that is similar along the lines of how an x-ray works. That kind of density can be a little bit much for the body.

And you know people for example that look at things so anal retentively that you can’t get them to grasp a fresh idea because they have to put it within the parameters of their given. So if they had more infrared mannerism to their nature, they would be in even worse shape because they would be having to be even more retentive. That’s why there’s that parameter.

The ultraviolet principle is a principle in which the magnetism is such that it’s more than what the body can bear, and has to be filtered out, and it’s filtered out by, you might say, the atmosphere of the way manifestation is.

In other words, what I was told was it is extremely hard on a person who gets sent into outer space, because they get subjected to the radiation. To the radiation of outer space. They don’t have that quality of things that’s a gravitational field, and the way that works to keep you from being hit by all of that radiation.

And so the point is yeah, I love Star Trek and whatnot, but in reality it could never be, because you can’t be exposed to that kind of radiation without being torn to pieces. You’re protected in manifestation and earth from that which is a quality of an ultraviolet.

When you raise your consciousness, you’re developing the consciousness of the universe. You’re figuring out a way to work with the ultraviolet. At the same time you are learning how to become more grounded. You’re learning how to contend with the infrared.

And you’re learning that yes, you have your physical eyes and your physical senses and that is part of what maintains manifestation that has a certain ego quality nature effect but you can touch and feel it and it can be something viable for you to play in and to influence, kind of in a co-creator way of the will of the vibration of something that is the essence that’s in a stillness.

Yes, you can have that, and then you can have this other. And they do not look like they come together, but they’re one and the same, just in different states. Just like sound is one state, and light is another – and yet they are the same.

So you can talk about it in this scientific sense, we’ll say, or you can talk about it in just the mundane. How do you get by, waking up in the morning, you’re blessed or graced by this quality that’s going on inside of you, and that gives you an edge in a way because of this path.

It gives you an edge that enables you to cope in manners that others cannot cope because they do not have that about them.

Jeane: I only remember the last part of my last dream, but all my dreams from last night seemed to have a lot of people in them.

In this very last image, I’m in a house. My mother is somewhere nearby and there’s also man there. At first I’m pretending to be asleep, but they want me to get involved in mixing up a sauce to baste a turkey. it’s a strange sauce – it has iodine in it.  

There’s a plucked turkey that they plan to slosh some sauce on, and then I’m supposed to use a baster to baste the turkey. I even put some of the sauce on with my hand.  

After doing this a few times, I notice that the turkey’s still alive. It’s craning its neck and looking at me doing this! I look at my mother and this man and say, “I can’t do this, the turkey is still alive.”  

They say, “Actually, the turkey is dead. It just doesn’t know it yet.” Then I say, “No, this is just too absurd for words. You have to do something about this.” 
I think that’s when I wake up.

John: The energetics in this scenario all represent bits and pieces of you that are picking up an overall change in life that you’re meant to embrace and maintain. Iodine, from our perception of its meaningfulness, is something that, in minute quantities, supports a balance and a flow – it supports overall health.

If we’re deficient in iodine, then in some regard part of us isn’t able to function quite as it’s meant to function. Minute quantities are needed for the overall (spatial) flow.

And the whole idea of basting has to do with taking and introducing an effect, or an influence, that comes through and touches Creation. Creation, in this instance, is like the turkey. What it represents is an illusion, but it’s an illusion that’s a reflection of change that’s occurring; a change that you initially act asleep toward.

When we pluck and baste a turkey, that’s a process of changing the state of something. And that’s indicative of the changes that humans are being asked to support (baste) in these current times. The idea that the turkey is still alive shows that the human desire to cling to the past and not accept change gives energy to aspects of life that are already dead, or over, from the perspective of Creation.

The outer world is something that we can identify with in terms of it having a particular realness that we perceive, which is correlated to how it’s been shaped by humans, as we process the onset of Creation energies.

The way things are, currently, is meant to change – it’s already changing. An entirely new note is onsetting, which will change our experience of the outer world. But we are part of that change because much of it must come through us; it must be processed into life by the human race.

Unfortunately, the new energetics coming in can also just be used to support the old, i.e., the plucked turkey is dead, but not everyone is acknowledging it yet. We’re still feeding the ways of the past rather than holding a space for the future.

So the human race finds itself in this in-between state. Yet our higher consciousness, or the higher self, recognizes the new order that’s coming through. We are meant to translate this change and bring it through us into life. Of course, when anything changes, whether individual or global, there are parts of us that still embrace, support, and cling to the old.

It’s like the physical world reports the old light for a long, long time before the actual change comes through, just like we can look up at the sky and still see light emitted from a star that might no longer exist; it might have died a long ago. So too it takes a while for the new changes to get established and reflected in the world we see.
