Troubled Sleep...Restless Gods

Troubled sleep...restless gods conjures an image of restless, sleepless nights, twisting and turning late into the night and into the early hours of the morning. No relief in sight for those wrestling with demons within and unresolved conflicts without. Troubled sleep signals a need for willingness to make the descent into dark realms and listen to the voices of the gods!

The Eyes of God

Dreams are the eyes of God states a central maxim of depth psychology. I've come to understand that when we see through the eyes of the Dreamer then we cut to the chase regarding situations, relationships, ourselves. Dreams don't lie.

God as Intimate Soul

I've been reflecting on the concept of God as intimate soul. William James, father of American psychology and pioneer in psychology and spirituality, proposed this idea as a way of expressing a more personal and practical understanding of what organized religion has described essentially as an outer religious reality. Something so far off and away cannot be as close or real as that which lies within the human soul, in fact is one and the same experience as soul herself. Yes, I did say…
