It is often pointed out that great ideas that are never acted upon are lost to the world. Why? Because they remain energetic potential and are not made real. The same is true for higher energies that we can’t ground into the physical realms. How do we do that? Think of it this way: when we connect to something higher, we can experience it and let it slip away, or we can take it into us and make it part of our life. The things we ground through our repetitive acts become the sum total of who we are. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane:I have another interim dream in which I don’t remember a lot of it. But part of it, I come out of this huge warehouse-type building—there’s several levels to it—into the bright sunlight.
And I feel like right around the corner, there’s a quarry—a gravel pit—but it’s uphill a ways. And I feel like I have to go there and get some gravel and take it down to a lower road. And it feels like you come along and pick up the wheelbarrow to push it ahead of me, and I’m kind of looking at you like, well, I know how to push a wheelbarrow, but you seem to think that you have to push the wheelbarrow.
That was all I remembered of that dream. I’m sure there was more to it, but I didn’t pick up the interim dream as well.
John: So what your dream is indicating is something has risen up, that you have a depth inside of yourself, which hasn’t been lost either. And the gravel is in the depth inside of yourself. It’s down lower. It’s not up. So you have an access up above, but also a connection to a gravel or a rootedness down below.
See, you didn’t know that part of the dream. You didn’t have that information as if that’s kind of a scenario. It’s the first time I’ve seen you dream something in which the scenario seems to be something that I’m aware of, that I haven’t even talked to you about, that you almost incorporate.
And so it’s an image of being up above, or reaching into like an understanding of something in the higher self, and yet still carrying the rootedness within. And having a process or a means, a thread, by which to do that, the wheelbarrow is being guided there. And the place that you’re holding onto is a two-story house.
So you were bringing the treasure down from above. In this case, the treasure is gravel. That’s the opposite image of how it is perceived as a general rule, in terms of an understanding that is reflective in creation.
In creation, you always find gravel down below, and you have to take it usually where you need it, which is usually in some other place. It’s a place that’s usually, you know, at different other elevations. You’re able to do this in a counterclockwise mode. You’re able to go up and down, and down and up. And from the warehouse, where you’re storing it, you’re able to go even lower, go out on the roads.

If we could sum up the history of the human race thus far, it would be hard to sum it up more concisely than to state: they put almost all their time and effort into unimportant things. And that’s a problem, because we’ll only progress at the things we put our focus on (think: money, military, sex, etc). Said another way, we humans don’t spend enough time trying to understand what we are, why we are designed the way we are designed, and what our lives should really be used for. And, even if one doesn’t believe in the universe having a higher purpose, shouldn’t humans devise a purpose for themselves that’s better than what we currently see? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: And so the dream is a dream in which it’s very much similar to the second part of your dream in which you have all of the various aspects. You even have the play or whatever it is that’s the central piece, that’s the overall, and then you have all of the various component pieces. And they all are significant in their own way, but they don’t go anywhere without the central play and that’s how this is.
In the dream, I start off where I take apart various saws that had been assembled, thinking I could use the blades only in a better capacity. The saws that were of different sizes that were put together, and there four of them, cost $70 apiece to creatively assemble. And so I’m realizing a lot of value is getting lost by having to strip something back.
And then I come to realize that the setting I’m in is I am actually a person who has been hired to take a product that the family has established, and this is like a particular family of which I am to live with, or I’m taken into the family, and what this family has produced is a whole number of things that have won awards, mostly books and stuff that have won multiple awards in terms of the amazing qualities of what they depict. And so I’m hired to try to facilitate this coming across better. In other words, it’s one thing to get the recognition in the select circles, but it’s another thing to disseminate it.
So to start off with, just to kind of go at this slowly, I take a product of a lesser stature, one of the books that wasn’t considered that serious of a subject matter, and yet this is one of the various books but it’s not one that won any awards.
Well, I take this one and I attempt to mount it as if in a permanent display, so I drive a nail through the book in an attempt to permanently mount it on a display stand, but I can’t get the nail to go into the stand properly. And the nail keeps bending, and I’m holding it, and pounding it, and it’s just very, very strange.
And I look at this and I’m thinking this nail’s a cheap nail that’s bending, and I hold it with my fingers to keep it from bending, continuing to try to hit it. And even the top cap of it breaks off. So the whole thing is ridiculous.
And then a member of the family comes over and says, “Yes, there is all of this other, and why display this item when there are all these other books that have won all kinds of recognition and awards in terms of the subject matter of what they bring out?”
So I take the nail out and I realize that I had driven it through the pages even, which is again ridiculous, because even if this lesser whimsical book was important to read, how can you do that if you drive the nail through the book. And so I was fortunate however, and no one seemed to pay much attention to that awkwardness. No one was upset. I guess they figured I just didn’t quite understand or get it, you know the fact that I was looking in a way that wasn’t paying attention to that which could be integrated more fully, in terms of an overall acceptance, because it had already been recognized to be important.
And so they take me over to where everything that was created by this family, to which I am now part of the family, but it’s my role to get it out there, or to market it, for them, and among the creative products there was a chess set they have for sale for over $700. And so they’ve shown me all this stuff and then here we go to a secondary item like a chess set that was created kind of as a whimsical thing again, and I look at the chess set and say, “You know, I can buy a chess set like this from an antique mall for $200.”
So even after the fiasco that I had been in, in which I had taken some crazy item and was actually beating it up by putting the nail through the center of it, they didn’t seem to be phased at all by what had occurred before and they were interested in my input. And so then a whole discussion ensues as to how to integrate the point that I made that this is priced at $700, and you can buy it for $200, and someone mentions that this is new and so that should matter. And in the end, as I’m waking up, I’m saying, “Can you make a profit if you were to sell it for $500 and, if it’s a slow mover, then we don’t ever do this again.”
So what is going on? The dream is indicating that I am part of a large overall family, it’s a family but it needs to take what it has opened up and reached to which there is a high recognition in terms of something on an inner level of society, and that needs to be disseminated into the whole.
And, in the dream, I have not yet found the way in which that is best accomplished – which means I’m not dwelling properly upon what is the dynamic, the overriding and overall dynamic. And so to highlight the fact, first I immobilize that which has been done, you know pounding a nail in something that’s fortunately insignificant.
So I’m looking at the wrong thing, and then actually going into a denseness with that – and that’s the book – plus, I’m also taking apart the means originally devised for splitting things into finished products, taking the saw and just taking the whole caricature of the saw that’s various sizes to be able to do various kinds of cuts. I’m taking that off, so I just have the various sized blades. So everything is in a state of a kind of flip-flopping and, eventually, I am shown what needs to excel, that needs to be held in high esteem, in terms of the world. And instead of sticking on a side issue, to instead look at this which stands out.
The meaning is, that which is most important to the overall of life, deemed by life to be most important, is not presented in a way for all to see, appreciate, and enjoy. The amazing creativity lies dormant. It is established with the family, but needs to reach beyond that and into society. Society has already acknowledged that it’s important, but doesn’t have the means to fully take it in.

It can be very difficult to make a shift in ourselves, or to find a new way to proceed when we are in a familiar, or recognizable, situation. Yet, there also can come a time when we can surprise ourselves and choose differently in the moment – opening up new possibilities, forever, whenever we reach those particular crossroads. It is a certain combination of inner desire and letting go that enables the energetic shift to be made. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: What I did in terms of my dream is I incorporated a bit of the situation that’s at hand. The whole thing has to do with letting go in order to recognize something anew. In other words, to let go of the constraints, the conceptions, the projections, the perceptions that hold something on in order to be able to recognize something anew.
And so I did it a little differently in the meditation dream. A sequence of events occur in which the end result strikes me as being a surprise. The reason this happens, meaning a surprise, is because the usual resistance wasn’t accentuating the usual presence; in other words, the usual way that you take and relate to things.
As a result, an unfoldment that ordinarily isn’t possible is able to come to pass, or to be viable, or come into fruition, and that’s able to be so because I’m not trying to hold on to something for some reason, which one usually does, as a kind of collective consciousness of themselves. This wouldn’t have happened if certain events that are kept in check, ordinarily, hadn’t been ignored, or let go of, or just allowed to run their course.
What has happened is ordinarily kept in check by collective outer forces. In this case, an exception has occurred; to change that would be a problem at this time, now that the unfoldment has gotten to this point.
As I am noticing this inside of myself I walk into a room, and, lo and behold, to my surprise, Dee’s dad is sitting there. He’s dressed up and wide awake; this doesn’t happen this early in the morning. But, to my surprise, I’m witnessing a new paradigm shift.
So, what has happened is, what I am seeing as an unfoldment is an awakening in life designed as a shift away from the collective conditioning. This occurred because a freedom outside of the usual collective consciousness of control has let go so that this can happen. A lot can be learned, appreciated, and realized from a shift, which brightens things up in this new way, or new paradigm way.
And the meaning is that I am at the threshold of a shift that is most enlightening. This is all portrayed in the outer; this is the scenario. It’s actually a fairly profound thing. And so, of course, to shake it out, I go back to, again, kind of like the breath.
So, in my dream, I’m looking at being able to let go of having to carry myself in a vibratory identification way. To do so gets in the way of an inner connection in which there is no definition. To portray this in a loud way a person who I take to be a bit like a politician comes up and gives me a huge, almost suffocating, hug as a greeting.
Ordinarily, if I see him a particular way, the hug doesn’t mean anything and we keep a certain kind of distance. But, all of a sudden, for some reason, something is more genuine. And so all differences are let go of between us, and thus the hug can be like that as a type of almost squeeze-the-life-out-of-you merging.
If I insist within myself to see him as a politician, there wouldn’t be this genuineness of the hug. I wake up as I’m saying to him, “The one thing I really like about you…”
What I was about to say to him, before I woke up, had to do with his way of being able to greet and meet and merge with me without the politician in the way. I was going to refer to the intangible inner quality that he has that sets or let’s go of mannerisms and nuances in between.
And so then as kind of an understanding that evolves out of this: to truly do that results in a coming together that literally takes the breath away – because that’s what the squeeze was like.
And I saw this in a number of ways. I even saw this as a type of branding, where there’d be excruciating pain in relationship to something that wasn’t there. And by that I mean that there isn’t a mannerism, or aspect, on the breath that projects separation.
Or, another way of saying it, when the vibration called, let’s say, the Gabriel energy to be merged with, in terms of its essence that was in Mohammed, the breath of familiarity to the mind senses was snuffed out. The result was a oneness to be read. Of course, it wasn’t understood to begin with. So that was the greater meaning and significance of that event that happened to Mohammed at 40 years old. That was a huge, huge step.
