Posts Tagged ‘what do chase dreams mean?’

d5oadThose dreams where we feel like we can’t move, or like we can’t break out of an inertia, often linger the longest with us after we wake up. Yet, in the dream world, sometimes we’re not supposed to run away from the aliens or monsters: what seems alien might just be a friendly part of our self that we are irrationally afraid of – it is us that has turned them into the bad guys. Most often, an inner connection is trying to be made, and if we can get some insight into that through the imagery, we can facilitate the new alliance – and forward movement. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my dream, I see a spaceship in the atmosphere. In fact, I see a number of spaceships. And, all of a sudden, one of them kind of does this little roll, as the thing goes plunk, and hits the ground. 

And at first I thought it was crashing, but then, when another one does it, I realize that they’re landing. And so I have this deep, deep inner inflection, as if I know from somewhere – an ancient part of myself – that when something like this happens, you should hide. You don’t just sit around to see what’s going on. 

But because that inflection didn’t come through loudly enough, and in the outer, in my senses, it’s never happened before, so instead of following those instincts, my curiosity keeps me in the outer. And what I knew when I hit that inflection was that there happened to be a little spot that only I knew about, that was in the back of a closet in a kind of a little hidden room back there, that I could go in there and wait things out. Just get still, and wait things out, and I wouldn’t be found.

Instead of following my better judgment, the next thing I know is I see myself in kind of what’s like a large warehouse area, and the exits are all blocked. And there first were like some kind of execution, or some kind of service, guys, that came and blocked all the entrances. And then a person comes up to me and says, “What they are doing is systematically killing everyone.” I am told that the only way is to make a run for it, and that I have to figure this out. In other words, I have to figure this out for them because they can’t seem to move. Maybe I can move. 

And there I am wandering around in this place, too; it’s spacious enough that you can avoid more and more of them starting to come in. Some of them don’t attack, and others, big guys, but they’re all slow, they can’t run or anything – they just kind of slowly track you down. They’re like executioner types. 

One of them carries a big club, and then if he touches a person with the club they scream out in pain; it’s like being electrocuted. He doesn’t club them, he just touches them with this club. And another one tries to tackle me. He’s a little different type of character, I don’t know what he’s all about, but he doesn’t quite get me by the ankles – so I elude him.

So, essentially, these aliens, it’s not like they’re adroit, and they’re powerful, but they’re slow. But I no longer have this option of getting out of sight to let this pass. So I need to kind of follow the cue, which is I’ve got to be able to run away, which means to get out of the building. If I do that there’s no way of catching me.

So I kick at a piece of plywood near an exit, and, to my surprise, it gives, gives way, just enough that I should be able to slip outside. But my problem that I’m having is in jumpstarting myself, how do I motivate myself? How do I move? I need to move more expeditiously. But it’s as if I’m in kind of a traumatic, dumbed-down trance. I kind of know what needs to be done, but, again and again I’m my own worst enemy because I can’t seem to come out of a stupor. It’s all I can do, in other words, to fight a disorientation spell that’s immobilizing me from taking and acting with definitive steps – because I can go a lot faster than they can, but somehow or another, I can’t. 

And so what I’m describing is a stupor and amnesia that comes over me when I am overwhelmed by conditions, in the outer, that stifle the coming together of an inner awareness. So I’m not in a state of being complete. In order to be complete, a human being has a natural connection to everything that is happening. However, I’m not in that condition. I’ve lost this natural, overall awareness. I’m stifled, in other words. The acuity that is meant and able to be there, within, is kind of like veiled, or just out of touch. 

So I move around in the outer in an aimless, somewhat curious, not motivated, not properly alarmed, trance. This condition can be so bad that I can find that I’m no longer able to move when I need to move. And I know I have this acuity, I just can’t pull it out. And it occurs when I fail to follow an inflection from the inner that invokes my attention. The failure to adhere to this keeps the coming alive from coming into a clarity, and thus I am real shut down and veiled from what is a much needed access; all access within. 

See, where I’m really at in all of this is I’m in a spaciousness, and I need something to come through as a clarity, in a time way. And, if it comes through, then I carry the knowingness that I need, and can act in a way that I need; nothing can constrain me. But if it can’t come through, I’m in a trance; in a spell. 

So what is going on is, this is actually a repeat dream. I’ve had these kind of dreams before, just like you had your kind of dream before. In my case, I’m unable to fire up with my usual out-breath intensity. So, when I’m like this, I’m unable to generate what fires up, it’s like a type of momentum, or coming through, that’s attained and accessible, with ease, from the out-breath. It is as if my timing is out of sync, I just can’t find it. 

So what is the dream suggesting? The dream is pointing out that when in a spaciality of the in-breath, I lack the timing aliveness to come out to touch the spaciousness, and, therefore it creates the reaction and relatability that’s needed. And that my sense of closing the senses, you know, of the spaciousness, and getting real still, that’s the option by which, then, something can pass and then this timeline of things could return. But in this dream, I don’t have this option to go out and explore for that.

downloadWhen we reject, or dismiss, things we have set ourselves up to have to deal with them again in the future. That’s true for us as individuals, and it’s true for us as a civilization. The better process is to accept something as it is, and to then proceed from there, whether that means making efforts to improve it and refine it, or deciding to leave it as it is, or to let it wither and fade away from energetic neglect. Kicking the can down the road may make us feel better, in the now moment, but who knows what that can will come back to us as at a later date.

Jeane: I had a headache, which kind of interfered with my dreaming last night. And what I remember most about the dream is it felt like I was trying to get away, or help some other people get away also.

And we ended up down at the convention center, where we were yesterday, but these four or five people had gone into a different area that supposedly was somewhat locked, and I wanted to get them out, but the only way I could think of getting them out is if I could rope them and pull them out.

I remember that part, and other than that I don’t remember the details as much as I feel like, in the dream, I was trying to get away, and making different moves to get away. But I wanted to get them free, too. I just remember the impression more than the details.

John: Well, what you’re dreaming is the first thing, the first part, in other words, whenever you’re confronted with something that is a bit overwhelming, or is going to take time to understand, or grasp, or catch up with, to absorb, the first reaction is kind of a defensive reaction. Whenever you’re presented with something that – speaking of it just in a great big general sense – is something that you have to, somehow or another, take into account in terms of your overall perception.

The challenge that you’re presented with, and it’s almost as if it’s always an over-the-top challenge, the challenge is to be able to put it into a stillness, to be at peace, or at rest, with it. Stillness is not a place that has a lot of tangibility to it because, with our senses and whatnot, we’re drawn out of that.

Yet whenever anything comes up that is affecting our perceptions in some way, that causes us to have to ponder, or see, and look at where we’re at, in relationship to the situation, our reaction, our tendency, is to do something that has a defense mechanism orientation. And everything that takes and works outside of pure stillness is a defense mechanism reaction.

And that every dialogue, every discussion, everything that goes on has underneath that, ladled underneath that, is a quality of separation that is a defense mechanism way of being. And rarely is there is a situation in which there isn’t something like that that exists.

So, on this level of unfoldment, that’s what the buying and selling looks like now. It’s a reaction that has that as its modality.

So you were essentially dreaming of being in an orientation in which you were presented with the option of letting go of it completely and being able to stay still with it, and not be affected by what was happening, or having to adopt a type of step-back position. And so you were looking at, and it’s important to look at this stuff, too, because it’s part of the path of looking at the degrees and in the areas in which one takes a step-back position. In other words, this is another octave.

See, most people’s understanding of stillness has to do with being able to be quiet, and watching, as if they’re gathering more information and holding a reserve. But there is another level of stillness in which you don’t even do that as a defense mechanism. Can you see how you were watching that?

It’s a good spot to look at. It’s a good way to look at things. What is good about that is that enables you to accept everything, and, when you accept something, then that leads to a stillness – because not being able to accept something in some capacity or another is a step back. It’s a type of defense mechanism.

33adIf we remember enough of our dreams, we will realize that many times nothing goes right, things become entangled, and then something will chase us. But in those situations there is often help and guidance; in the dream today that guidance shows up in the form of a dog. But this is also true of our waking life: the universe is always trying to offer us help and guidance. It can be less obvious – something said by a stranger, or a detour in the road – but it is there for us, particularly when we are struggling toward something greater than ourselves, because the universe is built to support that. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had a dream and it felt like I’m with a friend, and I also have a dog. It’s kind of a long, low-to-the-ground dog, you know, kind of like a small Bassett hound or something. And we’re being pursued, so we’re kind of on the run a lot.

And I go into this town, and there’s a lady in the village that seems like willing to hide us, so we go into her house. She wants to hide us in a room where we have to go up these thin stairs and then squeeze through some little bars, and barely can make it with the dog, and into a little room in the house that’s rarely used.

So we go there, manage to squeeze in there and look around, and the thing is I know it’s only for a certain time limit because their son, who’s away, will probably be coming home, and he would see us and then maybe more people would find out about us. But then we need to leave even sooner than that because at one point I look out the window and I see that there’s some neighbor ladies that can see in the window, and see that we’re there, so we need to kind of keep on the move. And it feels like we can’t even leave by going down and into the street; it feels like we have to kind of leave by going out over the rooftops.

For a while in that dream it just feels like I’m still on the move and being chased, and then finally we come to this little village. There’s at least two other people with me. I don’t know if the dog is still with me, or not. And as we come into this village we’re always staying about a day ahead of whoever’s chasing us, but I see a platform, and there’s a foreign looking guy and his friends, and I guess he’s something like a fortune teller, or someone who has a certain sight, so we go over and we sit down around him. It’s like we want to get some more information, and it feels like not only can he give us information, but he also knows about the people chasing us, that he can read the situation because I think the person chasing us is even from his village, or he knows him really well.

And some people try to convince us that maybe it’s coincidence that this person is just traveling the same way we’re traveling so we think he’s chasing us, but I know that’s not true. They’re actually chasing us. And then it feels like the dream just shifts.

John: So it seems like the situation you’re placed in is one of having to be in the outer sorting something out. And whatever it is that you have to contend with, or sort out, or come to grips with, or grasp in the outer is something that’s a bit overwhelming to your perception, or bewildering.

In other words, what you’re dealing with is something that you haven’t gotten beyond. It’s like a type of karma because there’s the constant sense of a chase scene.

Now the thing that you have, during all of this happening, is you had the dog. And so the dog is the helper or the friend. It’s kind of like if you didn’t have that, symbolically speaking, these forces could be too much for you. But this is where you get the help, or this is where you get the friend. And when it’s not needed anymore, when you go to this village where it’s not needed anymore, it’s not needed anymore because you’re able to now access the information, the help, and the guidance on your own. In other words, that’s where you meet something that is able to give you information about the situation that’s propounded upon your nature.

So your dream is centered primarily in the outer. In other words, to begin with everyone has to go through things in the outer in order to finally come to a recognition and realization of something more that’s possible – that isn’t just outwardly oriented, which is a reflection, which a person doesn’t realize. Initially they don’t realize the degree to which that is an inner flow. They just contend with it as an outer mannerism, and think of it only as an outer mannerism. They don’t realize that there is an inner design behind every outer mannerism. And if you’re just plopped into life, you then go through all kinds of bewilderment as a consequence of that.

But this isn’t a dense dream. This is a dream in which you’re intended to have to do this, and you’re protected in terms of having to go through this process. In other words, there’s a masculine way of doing the path towards consciousness, and then there’s a feminine way. And in the feminine way they are creation, and so you have all of these little things that pick and poke at you, but when you are on a path in which you have the protection and the guidance, it works out differently. You don’t develop the stigmas, and traumas, and catastrophes that cause one to keep taking steps backwards until they’re duped out, and completely lost, and have no way of understanding how to cope.

But in your particular case you have the dog, and the dog is like something that’s like a friend, or a protective force, for you. And then, when you don’t need the dog, then you have an aspect of the masculine, which is a type of sight, that really knows that what’s going on in terms of all of this is for a greater purpose, that recognizes more what it is truly all about from somewhere else, in other words, not just from the sense of how something is without, recognizes how it is in terms of a greater meaningfulness.

So you’re looking at one half; your looking at the part that has to rise up. In other words, it’s in manifestation and has to rise up energetically, in other words, come more to handing back and, in the doing of that, connects with what is going on, Is awoken to that in terms of what is going on because of the help that is provided, the friend, the dog, or ultimately, the aspect of the masculine that knows more about whatever it is that’s afflicting or confounding you.

It’s an outer that you’re contending with and you have guidance in that. And, yes, it can be bewildering and such, and confusing, but you’re intended to make headway through that. And even though you might not see that as what is going on, because it seems like wherever you go and however you do this is constantly haunting you. It’s not haunting you in a tearing down way. You are transcending it by the fact that it is something that you’re directly facing. You have to directly face this sort of thing before something more can actually open up because it actually is a step that stands before you receive all that is given. It’s kind of like part of the price of admission phase, and then all of a sudden everything opens up.
