We know that there is a physical world, and we know that behind, and throughout, everything physical that there is a world of energies. And we have thousands of years of stories describing different ways these two sides have communicated, whether in the tales of elves and fairies and angels, in miraculous visions, or ghosts, or the feel of an unseen hand in our affairs. Yet one of the best, and most consistent, forms of this communication is our dream world, because we are connected to our unconscious which can reach much further than our conscious mind. In accessing our dreams, we gain access to a world we are usually cut off from. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: What you tend to do is, each dream in some subtle way builds. The next dream after that will build, and then the next dream after that will build.
So with three dreams, if this works, one should be able to see how they connect. Now all dreams in a given night connect, but I’m of the opinion that the states that you’re going to be going through are going to be very closely correlated. At least for a period of time they’ll be very, very closely correlated. We tend to theme inside of ourselves for a long time until we make breakthroughs.
And so the odds of us doing something like that is greater than huge differentiations, you know huge shifted differentiations. So I’m inclined to believe that your first dream is going to be correlated to your second dream, which will advance something further, to which your third dream will advance something even further. And within that is a central theme.
Here’s the dilemma for me. Somehow I have to hear, in order for this to have any value, I have to hear the vibration behind your dream. And sometimes I have to fumble about, but I will know and you will know when I hit it.
And then, as I hit it, that brings something straight through. That creates the honing. Now some deep, deep part of yourself, your higher self, already knows. It’s just that you haven’t brought it through to this side of things. But because some part of you deep, deep down knows, that if that chord is hit you will know it.
And so you start with the farthest one and in that farthest one the way this kind of works as a process is it will introduce the schematic, okay, and you haven’t processed or worked the schematic out yet. It’s just kind of a state inside of you, and it’s a leakage that was able to occur. But some part at a deep, deep, deep level is ready, then, after you’ve had this dream, that understands it to some degree, is ready now to take another step.
And so then the next night you will dream something that will add to that, in some tiny way, on the same schematic. And then the third night you will dream something that will add to that again, and eventually you create what becomes a completeness. A completeness on a degree inside of yourself, in some evolving fashion.
And then, often times, a lot of people are given a reprieve, you know like are able to kind of dance with that a bit, you know feel good with that a bit, and then comes the next shot in the jaw, so to speak, where again you have to contend with it – and it just never stops. And each thing keeps bringing you closer and closer and closer to subtler and subtler energies, which really then is more and more intertwined alignment of a beingness, of a greater and greater wholeness.
So you have all of that going on, too, and the fact that one dreams is a very, very, very big step. In the Masters of Wisdom they talk in terms of dreams about three big steps. The first step is to remember your dream. Just to remember your dream is considered a big step because, like I say, somewhere inside of you, you already deep, deep, deep down know what it means. You just can’t quite access it.
Actually, that’s the second step is remembering your dreams. The first step, of course, is breaking out of the fact that we live in a reflective world and that the reflective world is not what is real. And that even the dreamworld is reflective, but it clears the way, it speeds up the access. It’s like working with the speed of light instead of the speed of sound. It gives you a quicker access to process through things.
And then the third step is then the pulling out of the meaning behind the dreams. That takes a bit, that comes later. When it came to the Khwajagan, who used to look out for the affairs of the world way back hundreds of years ago, before they went hidden and underground because the world doesn’t accept them in that capacity, before they did that, they came to be seen almost in a fearful mode, in other words, as something that had a connection with something that nobody else regularly understood – which caused them to have to withdraw, in terms of their presence, because they can’t be disturbing things and creating some sort of fear or something.
So, as you dream, and as you connect to your dreams, and as you come to understand your dreams, and that all stems from something that is screaming to come alive, and yet the way it processes across can be, in terms of the eyes of ordinariness, to be a bit bizarre, or be taken in a bizarre way.
And I say that in relationship to the fact that behind the dreams, catching up with that, is the stuff that wants to come out and, for coping purposes, one takes and adopts personalities, and mannerisms, that act as defense mechanisms, and veils, from it being too literal – because in a physical existence we’re just not accustomed to having to cope this way. And yet now’s the time when we have to.
