Posts Tagged ‘what do chase dreams mean?’

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.

vanishing-point_01Often, when someone, or something, is in need, we are at our best. We overcome the obstacles that are in the way because we understand what is at stake, and the importance of rising to the occasion. In the outer world, these situations can be easy to see. On an inner level we may only feel them very subtly but, as this dream image shows, the consequences can be just as dire. So our dreams can help us by showing us the importance of a connection. Here, a man drives a car across country to reach his family in need; what seeks to derail his journey is less important than reaching the goal. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: When I first woke up last night it was because I was coughing a lot, and it felt like rather than remember a dream I was just remembering a few minutes of a movie I’d watched before going to bed.

And the movie was about a man who was driving a classic car, a Dodge Charger, across the desert trying to get to his wife and daughter who were in the hospital. And he keeps having to evade policemen and others who chase him because they’re assuming if he’s going fast he must be… well, he’s either running into a speed trap, or he must be running drugs, he must be doing something else, you know, so everybody keeps getting after him from one state to another.

One person even chases him in a car that’s a black version of the white car that he’s driving, so it’s kind of a symbolic movie. And that movie just seemed to be on my mind a lot about the chase, plus my nephew has just gotten the same kind of a car, a Dodge Charger, which is kind of a muscle car, to restore, so I must have been associating it in some way.

And it just seemed to be this sensation of being in the desert because he was driving across Monument Valley and, you know, all the different colors like Monument Valley, you have a white car versus a black car, and the speed of it trying to chase. So, initially, it was like I was just trying to work with the cough and feeling sick, and then that movie was on my mind a lot. And then I had a dream.

John: So what you’re talking about, what you’re describing, what the energetic is, what you’re seeking to figure out, what you’re trying to close in on is a format, a methodology, a mannerism, a schematic upon which to proceed from A to B, between two points.

And so you’re still trying to sort that out in a way that comes across, so that it’s non-combative for one thing, meaning there is no chase or anything like that involved. 2) It’s not too fast for the situation, which means that you’re not creating a vacuum, or a desert kind of vibratoriness in which there’s nothing able to be denoted because your approach to yourself is out of twang with what is in the environment, is out of twine with connecting to what you need to connect to, that is in an environment.

In other words, the environment that you’re having to connect with is something that is needed, and there needs to be a relating in terms of that which is needed, which is in a hospital. And so what’s happening in terms of catching up with the, we’ll call it, hospitalized side of yourself is you have to find the right tone, space, mannerism, speed or however you want to say it.

Basically the overreaching schematic of the dream was that of, how do you come up with the means of communication that is able to make something, bring something clearly through, in a knowable way?

And so what you’re doing with this energetic of the dream is you’re looking at the characteristics, or mannerisms, in which your listening center is adhering through a process, or a flow, that needs to be aligned, that needs to be in sync more with bringing something from A to B. That’s what you’re doing is you’re playing with this A to B, and the way you’re playing with it yet is more of a kind of mystery.

In other words, the dream is there to cause something to sort, or streamline, in a way that facilitates a going from A to B. And to facilitate that, you have to contend with whatever there is that’s a discombobulation in bringing that clearly through. And so you’re working on sorting that out in your dream.
