When we ponder the meaning of dream images, we can look for what is universal in them; sometimes we can even learn about the universal through them. In other words, as below, so above. When a dream shows us the common circumstance of needing to keep our computer updated, our unconscious can use that scenario to speak about keeping updated and in sync with the universal. In the material world, we can understand how not having our computer updated and synced prevents us from being able to do what we are trying to do. And in the universal, we struggle to stay in the energetic flow of things; our systems know that and work with us to improve, always looking for our optimum performance toward our purpose.

Jeane: I’m frustrated because I was jarred a little and I lost some detail of the dream. I mean I can remember what I was doing the last part of it.

It was like I was working with several people and, in order to coordinate with them, I was using my iPad, and iPhone sometimes, but I needed to make sure that it was kind of updated. I needed to make sure I didn’t lose the material, or that I could coordinate or sync the material.

But, what I can’t remember was the theme of what it was that we were trying to do. I mean I know that we used dreams, I know that we used the iPad, I lost that detail. There was some kind of complex detail there, so unless it pops back in I don’t know. I just remember my concern was kind of keeping it coordinated and updated.

John: What you were trying to do in the dream was that you were exploring, and probing, a depth inside of yourself in order to look at something that you have a sense, or an awareness, of as being important in terms of an aspect of your overall beingness.

It’s as if you’re on a journey. In other words, the dreaming process often involves going into a state deep within in which the usual outer conditions and senses of one’s nature get turned inward, as opposed to turned outward. And you come to looking at the greater aspect of an overall beingness, or being, that is one.

And in probing inside, and in looking inside, you come to notice the other features and attributes. The reason why most people don’t do that, and the reason why it’s hard to remember what it is that you were probing out and coming close to trying to see, is because there is kind of a prevailing concept that if you get too close to something like that you will have to contend with something that you don’t want to necessarily have to contend with. You’ll see what you’re not prepared, or ready, to integrate as part of your overall beingness.

So it can be better to move on, to not sustain an aspect of concentration too greatly in this degree because it will throw you around too much. It is apt to throw you around too much, or cause you to become too self-indulgent.

So, what is the scenario that would be triggering something like this, in terms of what you’re doing? In the outer, the outer being a reflection of what a person is inclined to do on the inner, in the outer you’re taking and you’re looking at what’s involved in terms of sorting things out in terms of your system, your computer system and such, that has to do with tapes and things like that that you are keeping track of, and you’re running into conundrums that you have to step aside from, or ponder, because there’s not a lot that you can directly do anything about given current conditions.

In other words, you’re finding that there are parts in this realm that are outside of your present means of sorting out and control.  And so you try to throw that behind you a bit, and move on. And so what you’re doing that way, reflectively, you’re getting the counter inner feedback within, as a kind of energetic dream mannerism, that then goes from a scenario that tripped it, so to speak, as a vibrational reflection in the outer. You’re taking that reflection in the outer back into the inner.

Now what’s interesting is, this time, what you’re doing is instead of… because this is the theme of the flow of the energy last night, which is something that I hadn’t been paying a lot of attention to because I’ve been inclined to look at it one way, and the way that I’ve been inclined to look at it is inner always flows into outer. And I always apply the word “always.” And the idea being that light comes down to touch light, inner comes down to touch outer, something in the outer, created in the image of what is really real, gets touched.

But I don’t take, I haven’t been taking, and acting as if I need to also put an emphasis on the half, or the part, of where the in-breath is at. It’s easier to just contend with the out-breath light coming down to touch light. But what about the in-breath of light rising up to touch light? Or the outer having an effect that triggers to the inner?

What about that? What goes on there? So you’re doing it in your way. In other words, you have an outer effect in terms of sorting things out in terms of a computer system and such, and then that outer effect as an intensity of focus is taken to bed and triggered into a probing that gets turned to the traveling within or, again, the light rising up to touch light kind of quality. That’s how you dreamt it.

02222We 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.

Why do we dream? Well, first in answering that it’s interesting to realize that almost anything we can study will have a sleep phase (or a dormant phase). And that those sleep phases allow for a renewed energy in the waking phase – not even so different from the dormancy of winter and the bursting of growth in spring. And in the human, dreams help us sort out what we are processing energetically during the day, so we can awaken clean and fresh in a new start tomorrow. At our deepest levels, dreams also help us see where we are in relation to our purpose and direction in life, because our unconscious is connected to, and in touch with, our inner possibility. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: When you’re trying to look at what’s going on behind the dream, the vibration behind the dream, and you’re kind of like asking the question: what’s really going on here? And what is that soul element, or whatever it is, that’s trying to come into the light of day?

Initially, when you have a dream, it’s important to do as much honor and justice as you can to the vibration. And the dream itself helps you to hold the vibration or, otherwise, it would be too transcendent. And when you pull the vibration down and through, you’re not just catching up with your light, you’re catching up with the light of the world – and you’re permeating that into the atmosphere around you. And you’re developing more auric space and everything else.

And then that energy that is you then can drop certain defensivenesses that are a heaviness upon the heart and, when you drop that, then you find yourself putting the world into your heart, or you put everything into your heart. And your heart is that big. It puts the universe in, and that’s how it heals. That’s how it’s really affecting things; that’s how it catches up with the innerness.

And what makes the dream and stuff awkward for people is, most people, when they have a dream, they tend to want to associate it with a bad experience that’s triggered it, they tend to associate it with something in the outer. And so then they try to look at the dream in terms of an outer projection and, when they do that, they shut the dream process down because they’re not dancing with that inner divine.

And when you reverse that, and start dancing with the inner divine, then that gets excited and you’ll have a tendency to want to dream, or some part of yourself will throw this stuff more at you – almost, can you shut it off kind of thing, it can get that bad. And you’re protected to a certain degree from that as a kind of affliction, when you have moods, when you have a kind of amnesia.

But you start breaking the amnesia, and you start seeing what’s going on behind the equation of things, that’s when you’re actually changing who you really are. You’re getting to the point where you’re no longer affected by the synapses in your nature, so much, as something has gotten so subtle that it is picking up the vibratory wave action of the universe.

And we need these Aesop type dreams to be able to kind of catch up with it, to be able to inflect with, because the actual transcendent vibrations that just goes away. You have an experience of it, you can write it up, you can even have some insight, it can be kind of profound, but then when that state lifts then it doesn’t make any sense to you. But the dreams still do have something more to them.

And to whatever degree that one looks at a dream, and you’ll notice that however you look at a dream there’s always many, many, many more dimensions to it than what is portrayed. And what also is interesting is, first you take and you bring it into something like a depth with inside of yourself, as if you are catching up with your own light. And then ultimately you come to know that your light is also the light of the world, and ultimately then you come to recognize then that everything that reflects around you is correlated. And then you can then reach to the scenarios around you – but only after you have gotten to the point where you’re doing justice to the inner.

When you tell a dream, and as you touch something that’s behind that, then you’ll know where that’s coming from. And then at some particular point, depending on the quality and the nature of the dream, one could then probe at what the scenario is of the outer. All outer projections are limited by the depth of one’s faculties, you know their sense perception and how that equates into a certain mind – as opposed to a mindfulness that includes the whole in an intertwined way. But I know that in the greatest equation of it all the inner and the outer come together.

It’s just this really, really strange dance in terms of the veils that exist. The closest I’ve been able to come to seeing that is to get to a quietness in which there’s a sound of the universe, and yet that sound cannot be heard if there is a mind that’s still inflecting off of say vibrations off of your synapses or something. There actually is a sound in the universe, and I was shocked to find that out that; there is a subtler sound than a person is normally capable of hearing because they make a louder sound that takes center stage by their thoughts and stuff like that getting in the way.

And I was really surprised to see that. And that is the oneness to everything that they talk about because that then puts you in touch with the language of things around you, helps you to note that you’re part of a whole. You’re not somehow separate. It isn’t about you, it’s about the whole, and hones you to recognizing that because you can hear it.

And what you’re really hearing, if you could sort out what all is inside of all of that that you hear, what you’re hearing is the vibration so to speak of how everything is created. In other words, because it was created out of sound,, and you can kind of hear a sound, and then you know you’re intertwined with that because that’s you, and it’s in everything.

That’s the oneness; that’s more or less, then, manifestation. And then there’s even other levels of stillness.
