Synchronous Soul Seeds . . .

Unexpected life circumstances, synchronous events, hold seeds of growth. Opening our eyes to the possibilities that surround us daily can startle us as events and encounters take us by surprise. They soulfully speak to us. They, in a split second or over time, tell us something we need to know. And, it all happens without planning or expectation.Once we're aware of this, we can tap into vital experiences. They nourish the soul. Answers to problems can come our way in seconds if we're open and…See More

Dreams, Births, and Ghosts . . .

Dream images of having a child, a newborn, are familiar within depth psychotherapy. Also, symbols of haunting spirits, poltergeist, come at a certain point. We either do inner work and birth new developments and potential, or we suffer from haunting in the inner world and outer reality, archetypal energy turned dark and destructive.When we hold back, don't permit ourselves to experience new things, we thwart our growth potential. It is best to live in the conscious world with full confidence.…See More

Are You Ready For A Therapy Journey?

Colleague and NYU psychoanalytic scholar, Michael Eigen writes in his book Under the Totem, "Are you ready for a therapy journey? . . . We are a repository of age-old trauma, catastrophic happenings and fears. Good feeling competes with bad, a balance that shifts and sometimes places us in jeopardy. One thing therapy can do, depending on luck, circumstance, and skill, is shift the balance for the better. Even a little can go a long way" (p.27).In between patients, I often pick up a volume in…See More

The Psyche is a Body/Psyche

The body speaks truth. We often try to mentally escape truth only to discover that our body becomes symptomatic. We feel anxious, depressed, come down with one or another medical diagnosis. Our psyche is trying to tell us to listen to what it has to say.Jung wrote, "Only if you first return to the body, to your earth, can individuation take place, only then does the thing become true" (Visions: Notes of the Seminar Given in 1930-1934, Vol. II - 21 February 1934 , p.1314.)I remember sitting in a…See More

Paralysing Grip of the Unconscious...

Paralysis strikes. People feel paralyzed by problems. Relationships become stuck. Dreams become those of being paralyzed, unable to move, unable to wake up. Paralysis is real in life and in dreams. It often strikes when we least expect. It's the voice of the unconscious mind trying to get through to us.Jung wrote, "The fight against the paralysing grip of the unconscious calls forth man's creative powers. That is the source of all creativity, but it needs heroic courage to do battle with these…See More

Holistic Psyche...

Sometimes (all right all the time) I'm stunned by the psyche's attunement to life and lifestyle issues. Dreams pick up and comment on diet, exercise, quality of relationships and work habits. They want to get our attention so that we can be more attuned to self, health, and consciousness.The psyche is holistic. It strives toward wholeness in body, mind, soul. A person related a dream about being sandwiched, near death, in between to slices of white bread. They knew their diet needed attention.…See More

To Live Without Reservation...

How we fuss and fret when we are stuck! We try ever so hard and seem to get nowhere. Then, we finally decide, if we have the proper sense to, to look within. Deep layers of feeling and instinct, especially dreams, can speak to us. But, above all, before we get to the point of the unconscious delivering its wisdom we must have lived with all our might, without reservation.C.G. Jung wrote, "This is how you must live - without reservation, whether in giving or withholding, according to what the…See More

The Mystic Relational Sea . . .

Posted on February 14, 2017 at 9:39am 3 Comments

William James in The will to believe and other essays in popular philosophy asserted, "our science is a drop, our ignorance a sea" (1897, p.54). What we do not know, our ignorance, extends into science and everyday life. Relationships, especially, hold witness to what we know and what we do not know. Truth is reflected in the quality of our…

Dreams ~ Revealer of Secrets

Posted on February 7, 2017 at 8:58am 0 Comments

If we require an answer to a problem, we need to go no further than our dreams. They speak to us; they spill the beans about what the concern is really about and what we need to consider or do about it. I was at a psychoanalytic conference in which dreams were discussed in highly technical and empirical ways. Raising my hand I offered, "Let's cut to the quick here. Dreams spill the beans. They tell us what's going on in situations, in relationships, and what people are about as…

SEPT 23, 2015 – Ecc 3:1 To Every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

Yesterday, Paul your comment, “remembering dreams two or three times a week is a good to keep in mind, otherwise we might be finding ourselves clogged...best to stay clear, and free...dream on!” struck a deep cord within me, so unfamiliar a experiential statement for me, I need to really pay attention...contemplate more as this has not been my reality.

When we consider and factor in that most child survivors, especially those with trauma amnesia [some operating from alter states], plus those of us who endured birth trauma/NDE [as I did], who have no nighttime 'dream' memory, only coma sleeps [as I now call them], due to being out-of and disembodied [walking between the worlds], and unconscious of this fact, for me until my original “rude awakening and repeated NDE’s [5 light/1dark]”; which I have been attending to in deep diving healing sojourns since 1983.

I am not Jungian trained, nor informed about the knowledge of the 'age of myth' – knowledge of the cosmos or gods, and until I joined DPA did not know what “lucid dreaming” even meant, however, I know from my own experience- this space.  I also have experienced locution states [peculiar indeed], and it is only now, while on the current ‘virtual hermitage’ I created for myself, where I am seeking to understand my current worn [not worn out], soul states/experiences I have known [unable to verbalize], until now.  

There may be a chance for me to understand more as I explore the lives of mystic women.

Currently, I am looking most deeply into states of the unconscious, sub-conscious and consciousness now that I am embodied, knowing there are other human beings who have also had “restrengthening/awakening of 6 – 10th senses related to cosmos energy.

And this is where I am/sense in this moment and contemplate this morning.  Thank you always for open the doors of communication for our community to engage in discussion of anomalous experience.  I am appreciative and remain grateful for your lovingkindness.  Peace + Love Linda

Good afternoon Paul - so true and glad the cowboys shared their songs + stories.  A very important part of our history.  Because I have worked with religiously and spiritually indoctrinated and abused folks which I know you also serve and no doubt, we have probably witnessed common post-abuse anomalous experiences that these folks experience, for which I got educated walking roads less travelled with them and all I can say Paul is I am so grateful for my faith and blessings in my private life and it goes  without saying - my relationship, divine blessings received from God, Lord Almighty during my NDE's - especially with this population the importance of being able to discern both the holy and unholy as your novel portrayed so well.

I had no problem recovering from the read and it was only disturbing for I recall the names of the people I have served who unfortunately sent through similar stories of evil deeds for all kinds of reason disturbed minds can create.

Hope you are having a beautiful day.  Peace + Love Linda

Good evening Paul - I enjoyed reading your novel for your command of prose was well done.  However, such a disturbing topic, in light of the fact that I too have served people in healing of similar experiences, this is not a topic I normally would select for the pleasure and reading enjoyment.  It is important for those of us who help with the healing in such case scenarios to keep our free time void of reading about the degree of shadow, darkness - the evil and keep it clear of our precious, free time away.  

However, out of respect for you and your contributions to DPA [love your Blog posts], plus your request for me to read and render my thoughts - I was able to get through it.

Many blessings extended to you for service to you provide to survivors of religious abusive experiences. I am fortunate to know you.  Peace + Love Linda

Hi Paul: Welcome to the online Depth community.I spent a good part of last summer doing some fieldwork in New Mexico, visiting pueblos, spending time in nature, and connecting with members of the Jungian community there.

I think you'll find many like-minded individuals who are seeking to connect and share in meaningful discussion here in this unique place. I hope you'll engage here right away by sharing a link, article, or web site that has been meaningful to you in your work--or by commenting on someone else's post, or asking a question. These are just some ideas to get you started. I will also send you some additional tips on navigating the site in a separate message. I look forward to seeing you around the community. Regards~Bonnie Bright, Founder.

Welcome Paul,

Your training and work as a clinical psychologist will add much to our discussions in the Alliance. As much as I love the archetypal conversations and the creativity of dreamwork and active imagination, I am always interested in the application of these concepts and practices in the "day-to-day" challenges of mental health. I look forward to your posts in our many blogs, forums, and groups.

Ed
