When a Voice in a Dream Gives You “The Answer”

{Subtitle: The Codicils: A Vision for 21st Century America & the World.}

© John W. Robinson Dream Awareness Network Oct. 6, 2020

Some definitions of the word "idea" are as follows: [1] a thought, plan, or suggestion about what to do, [2] an opinion or belief, [3] something that you imagine or picture in your mind [4] any conception existing in the mind as a result of mental understanding, mental awareness, or mental activity.

With this lead in, I want to present an idea for any explorers that are new to the world of understanding their dreams. This is the idea that you can incubate a dream by suggesting and affirming to your inner self and your conscious self that you wish to experience a dream about a certain topic or more specifically to receive an answer to a question, or to receive practical guidance in the solving of a real life problem.

This is a practice in the art of dreamwork that I have been using for over 50 years with many successes. Jane Roberts, author of the Seth material, refers to it and other practices as becoming A Dream Art Scientist. At times, the practice will take persistence to develop. But if you are disciplined in the practice it will eventually become your expectation that you will receive the information from a dream that you seek. I believe this practice illustrates the admonition to:

• Seek and you will find.

• Ask and you will receive.

• Knock and the door will be opened.

The practice is that of dream incubation, or to develop or produce a dream about that which you are incubating. One of my most recent experiences at dream incubation deals with a concern many people have with the present state of perceived chaos, confusion over a vision for the future, and a lack of a continued movement toward equality & justice for all. These are all indicators that the experiment in democracy that our American culture has been involved in for so long, appears to be evolving. But, it is not just an American experience, it is a global experience.

It is with a history of proving this method in my dreamwork and a belief in its power that one night a few weeks ago, before falling asleep, I suggested to my conscious mind, subconscious mind and inner self that I desired and expected more insight and a solution to the societal anguish and confusion that millions are experiencing at this historical time. How do we as a society move forward?

With that background, I awake from a dream that night with this action taking place. My dreaming self like my waking self is asking the question to another personality in my dream. I am aware of another personality being in the dream event even though upon awaking I could not identify that personality. What impacted me was a voice that stated very clearly – “Reread the ending of Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time and you will discover your answer”. Awakening from this dream and the certainty of the voice in the dream, I felt that I had received the answer to my suggestion, or incubation of the ideas stated above.

Immediately upon getting out of bed, I went to the family room which now serves also as a writer’s office for me. I found the book among the many books authored by Jane Roberts,  or books by others sharing their experience with the material. At last count I think it totaled about 35 volumes.

I opened the book to the section suggested by the dream voice and began reading. It did not take long before I discovered the answer to my specific request for the dream incubation.

There it was in plain sight in black & white very clearly laid out. The word is Codicils.

I knew then I had read about the Codicils, previously in the books “Psychic Politics” and “…The Museum of Time”, and at the time had an idea, that I wanted to write a blog about the Codicils because I believed them to be a touchstone in the evolution of civilization and its move toward justice and equality for all while developing humanity’s nature to it full extant.

I will now share with you my rediscovery of the Codicils as recorded by Jane Roberts in The Oversoul Seven Trilogy and Psychic Politics. The source I begin with is the literary fiction work The Oversoul Seven Trilogy. The Trilogy was transmitted and written by Jane thru altered states of consciousness. The quotes I will use come from the 1995 Amber-Allen Publishing edition of the Trilogy, published by Robert Butts (Jane’s spouse) over 10 years after Jane’s physical death.

The following quotes are from sections of the referenced work beginning on page 538 and ending on 545 (last page in the trilogy). Open your mind to a new awareness and understanding. To set the stage, passages from the book’s last chapter follow.

“George was always embarrassed for Window when he spoke for Christ or Monarch; he couldn’t look him in the face. Grinning, he said, “the George?” “Well, I’m George anyhow.”

“I’m deeply honored,” “Monarch said.”

“He is the George, “Leona whispered mentally, and he isn’t, I can tell. Something’s …distorted.”

“And then obviously you aren’t trying to steal the Codicils,” Monarch replied to George, with relief.

“Seven interrupted.” “We’re trying to make sure that the Codicils do appear in your time. You must be dream travelers.”

…”George shook his own head. He knew that whatever Window would say was true. But how did he know”?

“Window began: “I use to speak for a personality called Monarch—as you know. Well, suddenly that consciousness and mine merged. I knew Monarch’s life and he knew mine. But his was a world that makes ours really look sick. I’ve never been so happy in my life as when I glimpsed pictures of that world through his mental images. And his world was based on completely different ideas than ours is….”

“While Oversoul Seven was so concerned with finding the Codicils, the words “the Codicils” kept sounding through Josephine’s mind. She sensed some odd familiarity as if she herself had run across that particular phrase in some significant way before. That is, she thought the words meant “appendages to a will.” Yet suppose in this connotation, they meant “appendages to the will” – to man’s will?” {My note added: In this use “man’s will” refers to mankind, or humanity’s personal will in the generic sense.}

“With no particular destination in mind, she walked up the stairs to her small study and found herself examining the piles of books stacked so neatly on the bookshelves. “The Codicils”, she muttered angrily, anxiously. As if by themselves, her hands began rummaging through the books, fingering the pages. Yet she had the odd feeling that her fingers knew what they were doing, that she had in mind some particular goal beyond her conscious knowing.”

“…She suddenly yelled out in triumph and exaltation as she found the phrase, the particular phrase that was so vital. It was in an old book, Psychic Politics, by Jane Roberts, written many years before. There it was – the blueprint for mankind’s future, the blueprint that she was now completely sure was also written in the tissues and cells of the species itself. She read quickly, triumphantly:”


(Alternate hypotheses as a base for private and public experience)

1. “All of creation is sacred and alive, each part connected to each other part, and each communicating in a creative cooperative commerce in which the smallest and the largest are equally involved.”

2. “The physical senses present one unique version of reality, in which being is perceived in a particular dimensionalized sequence, built up through neurological patterning, and is the result of one kind of neurological focus. There are alternate neurological routes, biologically acceptable, and other sequences so far not chosen.”

3. “Our individual self government and our political organizations are by-products of sequential perception, and our exterior methods of communication set up patterns that correlate with, and duplicate, our synaptic behavior. We lock ourselves into certain structures of reality in this way.”

4. “Our sequential prejudiced perception is inherently far more flexible than we recognize, however. There are half steps – other unperceived impulses – that leap the nerve ends, too fast and too slow for our usual focus. Recognition of these can be learned and encouraged, bringing in perceptive data that will trigger changes in usual sense response, filling out potential sense spectra with which we are normally not familiar.”

5. “This greater possible sense spectrum includes increased perception of inner bodily reality in terms of cellular identity and behavior; automatic conscious control of bodily processes; and increased perception of exterior conditions as the usual senses become more vigorous. (Our sight, for example, is not nearly as efficient as it could be. Nuances of color, texture, and depth could be expanded and our entire visual area attains a brilliance presently considered exceptional or supernormal.)”

“Josephine’s glance slid down the page. The Codicils were followed by comments by the author. There was a paragraph called Comments on the Codicils. It seemed to apply to Codicil #1 and to the five Codicils in general at the same time. She read the pertinent passages quickly and impatiently.”


“Acceptance of these first codicils would expand practical knowledge of the self, break down barriers that are the result of our prejudiced perception, and restructure personal, social, and political life.”

“Concepts of the self and practical experience of the self must be broadened if the species is to develop its true potentials. Only an evolution of consciousness can alter the world view that appears to be our official line of consciousness.”

I, John, will digress from quoting from the book and say to the reader of this blog that there are two more pages of Comments on the Codicils that are a must for reading and understanding if you hold the view I do that our culture and the world needs to change its current direction, or the survival of mankind as we know it may be in jeopardy. I encourage you from my heart, to seek, find, read, and become aware of these Codicils. The realization of your human potential may be at stake. Now I am returning to quoting from the book to bring this blog to an ending.

“…George the First cried out: “Zounds, what luck!”

“You’ll never know,” Seven whispered to George mentally. “Goodbye, dear friend, at least for now.” He grinned and added, “It’s been a –uh—super relationship. You succeeded in your pursuits far better than you know.”

And Seven knew that it was all right, that everything was all right, always had been all right, that it had only been their anxieties and doubts that ever made it all seem wrong. They were all couched and safe, forever secure, forever jubilant at the heart of their own beings. There was never anything to be afraid of, if only they trusted the great sweet security that forever held the vitality of their beings, for they were all truly splendid, a part of a loving universe that cradled them forever in a safety and love literally beyond all comprehension.”

In closing this great example of the type of information you may get when you choose to incubate a dream, I encourage you to follow my lead. You may become aware of a new worldview that may be in your future now. A future governed by the CODICILS discussed in the two books referenced. Or, you may just become aware of the power of your dreams for releasing dramatic changes in your life. Either way the process is a win-win situation.

Look for more blogs on this site in the future expanding on these Codicil concepts while being related to my personal dreams and experiences or related to the dreams or experiences of others.

The Codicils were first received by Jane Roberts from her mental library and published in her book Psychic Politics-An Aspect Psychology Book, published in 1976. The Codicils I share above were included at the end of the third book of the Oversoul Seven Trilogy, Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time, a fiction novel. This is the reference to which my dream voice first led me, pointing me in the direction of the answer to my question. Jane published the first book of the trilogy The Education of Oversoul Seven in 1973. In 1979 The Further Education of Oversoul Seven was published. The last book of the trilogy Oversoul Seven and the Museum of Time was published in 1984.

In the book Psychic Politics, chapter 21, Jane shares how she received the Codicils. She describes the source as a type of psychic library.

…Finally one morning as I sat at my table, I saw the library transposed against the living room wall. My double sat there, reading a book. At the same time, the word “codicil” kept coming into my mind again. I heard it mentally, at first faintly and then it sounded louder and louder until I wrote the word down and waited. Then I knew that the material to come represented an alternate model for civilization to follow, and that I was transcribing my book from one depicting such a model—a model that we hadn’t chosen in the past. The codicils would represent a fresh hypothesis upon which to build a new, better civilization.”

As Jane reflected and expanded on what she was receiving, she suddenly realized:

“That the rest of the book would deal with an alternate model for civilization to follow based on the codicils I had just received and others to follow”. … “The rest of the material came very rapidly, and I found myself caught up in a vision of the world far different than the one we know.”

“The codicils, followed, would lead to a government as natural, orderly, and spontaneous as the seasons in which each individual brings personhood to fulfillment to the best of his or her ability, and in so doing automatically plays a potent role in the development of the entire society. Such a civilization would be based upon the following codicils, added to those already given.”

Additional Codicils

1. Each person is a unique version of an inner model that is itself a bank of potentials, variations, and creativity. The psyche is a seed of individuality and selfhood, cast in space-time but ultimately independent of it.

2. We are born in many times and places, but not in a return of identity as we understand it; not as a copy in different clothes, but as a new self ever-rising out of the psyche’s life as the new ruler rises to the podium or throne, in a psychic politics as ancient as humanity.

3. Civilizations both past and present represent projections of inner selfhood, and mirror the state of the mass psyche at any given time. We hold memory and knowledge of past civilizations as we hold unconscious memories of our private early current life experiences.

4. From our present, we exert force upon the past as well as the future, forming our ideas of the past and reacting accordingly. We actually project events into our own new past.

5. Each generation forms a new past, one that exists as surely as the present, not just an imaginary construct but as a practical platform—a newly built past—upon which we build a present.

6. Options and alternate models for selfhood and civilization exist in a psychic pattern of probabilities from which we can choose to actualize an entirely new life system.

And so, just as a dream can have a false awakening; an experience where you think you have awakened from a dream and begin reflecting on it, only to find out you are still dreaming when your consciousness in the dream gives you a clue pointing toward that fact; - I will now have a second ending to this report with a quote from Seth (Jane’s teacher) used as the closing to Jane’s book Psychic Politics.

“I am a poor imitation of the voices of your own psyches to which you do not listen. I will be un-needed, and gladly so, when you realize that the vitality and reinforcement and joy are your own, and rise from the fountain of your own beings; when you realize that you do not need me for protection, for there is nothing you need protect yourself against.”



Natural Hypnosis - Which You?...Which World?

Posted on January 10, 2015 at 3:43 PM

NATURAL HYPNOSIS: “Which You, Which World?’   
How to Free Yourself from Limitations

© Dream Awareness network August, 2014  

There is one statement, along with a few others, that Seth constantly stresses in the Seth material: 


In practical terms, this is one of the most important sentences uttered by Seth. The thoughts we think, the emotions we feel, the intentions we form, the beliefs we accept or change, the expectations we have, and the choices we make every present moment will determine what life experiences we will encounter in the “future”. Those experiences are activated at that moment, in that present. We do have the power to a large degree, to create the kind of reality we want to materialize or manifest. That reality arises out of every present moment based on our conscious decisions and actions. It is the very process of this manifestation and materialization that the so called, age old, “Law of Attraction” attempts to describe.

Sometimes slogans like “matching the vibrational frequencies” are used as a way of simplifying an explanation of this process. This arises out of the fact that all thought and emotion does propagate from their source as a wave, to use a physics term. In that context, every wave has a vibrational frequency, amplitude, and a speed of propagation. All waves then have an associated energy. Just as light travels from a point source as an electromagnetic wave of energy, Seth contended, and modern research by some scientists has confirmed, that thought energy does the same. Nikalo Tesla, a past great scientist, is quoted as saying:  

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”   

Radio, TV, Wi-Fi, and cell phone signals carry communications in a similar manner. If you want to understand the signal that is traveling in your direction, you must have a receiver that can tune in, or match the vibrational frequency of the signal you wish to receive, and then transform that signal into sound waves. The transformation is done via the device you are using. Your ear receives the sound waves and then it is converted into electrical impulses by your body that travels to the brain – and eureka – we have magic! 

We can be grateful that we have such a variety of incoming electromagnetic signals to choose from among all those that are being broadcast. We have the power to choose what we listen to, watch and accept into our minds. The information and communication signals we accept are filtered through our conscious minds and beliefs and then allowed to be stored in our unconscious or subconscious minds. We are constantly accepting either new data or reinforcing old data previously accepted. This is all a part of the process of natural hypnosis.

“Since your conscious beliefs determine those unconscious functions that bring about your personal experience, your first step is to enlarge those beliefs.

Within your own subjective reality are traces of all those roads not taken and all those abilities not used. You may think of yourself as primarily a parent, or mainly in terms of your job or profession. As much as possible for now, for this exercise, forget the normal familiar light in which you see yourself, and consider your entire identity as you do the following exercise.” There will be a form on another post to provide you a copy to use for this exercise.

See Post :  Exercise for Which You, Which World? -  Form”.

1.       Write down all of your known physical abilities, no matter how trivial you think they may be, and whether or not they have been fully developed.

2.       Likewise, write down all of your known mental abilities, no matter how trivial you think they are, even if they have not been fully developed.

3.       Write down all of the inclinations you have had toward particular activities, even those you have only remotely considered along with those that have come vividly to your mind.

“The lists you have written down represent the varied probable characteristics from which you have chosen to activate your particular main interest. Out of all these attributes, you have chosen what you now consider to be your hard-bed reality.

To follow any of these directions, can enrich your existence and experience that you know, and in turn open up other probabilities that now escape you. The main image of yourself that you have held has, to a large extent, also closed your mind to these other probable interests and identifications.

If you think in terms of a multidimensional self, then you will realize that you have many more avenues open to expression and fulfillment than you have been using. These probable achievements will lie latent unless you consciously decide to bring them into being.

Whatever talents you sense you have can be developed only if you determine to do so. The simple act ofdecision will then activate the unconscious mechanisms. You as a personality, regardless of your health, wealth or circumstances, have a rich variety of probable experience from which to choose.

Consciously you must realize this and seize the direction for your own life. Even if you say “I will go along with all life offers”, you are making a conscious decision. If you say, “I am powerless to direct my life”, you are also making a deliberate choice – and in that case a limiting one. 

The path of experience is nowhere settled. There is no one road that does not have avenues to another. There are deep veins of probable actions ever available to you at any given time. Your imagination can be of great value, allowing you to open yourself to such courses; you can then use it to help you bring these into being.

If you are poor, you chose that reality from many probable ones that did not involve poverty – and that are still open. If you chose illness, again, there is a probable reality ready for initiation in which you choose health. If you are lonely there are probable friends you refused to meet in the past, but who are readily available.

In your mind, then, see those probable abilities or events taking place. As you do, the intensity of your desire brings them into your experience.  There are no boundaries set about the self. There are literally many other probable “yous”. You can draw upon their abilities, as in their own way they call upon your own, for you are all intimately connected.

You must realize that you are indeed a probable you. Your experience is the result of beliefs. Your neuronal structure necessitates a certain focus, so that other experiences counter to your conscious assumptions, remain probable or latent.

Alter the beliefs and any probable self can, within certain limitations, be actualized.

But do realize, when you try to change your convictions in order to change your experience, you also have to first stop the momentum that you have already built up. You are changing the messages while the body is used to reacting smoothly, unquestionably, to a certain set of beliefs, due to the natural hypnosis that was put in place by the conscious mind surrounding those past beliefs.

There is a steady even flow in which conscious activity through the neurological structure brings about events.  When you alter these conscious beliefs through effort, then a period of time is necessary while the structure learns to adjust to the new preferred situation. If beliefs are changed overnight, comparatively less time is required.


In a manner of speaking, each belief can be seen as a powerful station, pulling, or attracting to it, from fields of probabilities, only those signals to which it is attuned, and blocking out all others.” 

Another way of saying this is that the Law of Attraction works when the vibrational frequency of that which you desire, matches the vibrational frequency of your beliefs and any limiting beliefs have been tuned out. Some express this condition as being in “alignment”. 

You must remember:

Your present beliefs govern the actualization of events.

Creativity and experience are being formed moment by moment by each individual. You must understand that your present is the point at which flesh and matter meet with the spirit. Therefore, the present is your point of power in your current lifetime, as you think of it. It is from that moment in the present which you choose – “Which You and Which World?”.

 If you assign greater force to the past, then you will feel ineffective and deny yourself your own energy.

·         To close this exercise, “sit with your eyes wide open, looking about you, and realize that this moment represents the point of your power, through which you can affect both past and future events. The present seen before you, with its intimate physical experience, is the result of action in other such presents. Do not be intimidated therefore by the past or the future. There is no need at all for undesirable aspects of contemporary reality to be projected into the future, unless you use the power of the present to do so.”

Know also that there is a constant interaction in this multidimensional point of power, so that in your terms, one incarnated self draws from all of the others what abilities it wants, according to its own specific localized beliefs.”

Ideas, information and steps for the exercise were taken from:
The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Robert, Sessions 655-657.

Natural hypnosis which you which world, I think it is a question to the readers to think critically. Hypnosis is sometimes used in a magic show, the magicians used it to hypnotized the audience to be their assistant. The blog makes an option to be decided by the reader because it raised a question of which world you will choose when you are in a hypnotism situation. I will ask why do call this a natural hypnosis, I was amazed that there is natural hypnotism that exist. Ever since I didn't read or saw such like this article that really makes me inspired to search for the procedures or the ways on how to hypnotize a person. I want you to entertain the other commenters about their suggestions or their comments whether it is negative or positive, all of that really matters. I will give you five stars for your excellent work, and God bless you for the rest of your lives.
