'Archetypes' Chapter

Archetype

Archetypes are essentially non-verbal data. They are perhaps the most primal objects of awareness there are, and reproduce themselves in both our behaviour and in the pattern of events as they arise in nature and human activity on a “non-psychological” level. The world of symbolism is very real. As real as matter. As real as your own flesh and blood. You gain more power when you see both the “spirit/symbol” and the literal meaning of anything in your life. Use both, and your actions and intentions will be doubly effective.

“The primordial image, or archetype, is a figure–be it a daemon, a human being, or a process–that constantly recurs in the course of history and appears wherever creative fantasy is freely expressed. Essentially, therefore, it is a mythological figure. . . . In each of these images there is a little piece of human psychology and human fate, a remnant of the joys and sorrows that have been repeated countless times in our ancestral history. . . .” Carl Jung (“On the Relation of Analytical Psychology to Poetry”)

“Archetypes, in spite of their conservative nature, are not static but in a continuous dramatic flux. Thus the self as a monad or continuous unit would be dead. But it lives inasmuch as it splits and unites again. There is no energy without opposites!” Carl Jung (1875 – 1961)

Theory Of Archetypes

Archetype is a modern word for a force that has always been present in life. Their legitimacy is still being debated, but there are some questions that find their answers in the theory of archetypes that have no answer in… Seek More

Using Archetypes

To use archetypes, I’m thinking that by our conscious intention to impress upon them we can “change the world” potentially? Indeed, but it’s not really possible to “tag” an archetype. They won’t incorporate psychic graffiti. It’s more setting up a… Seek More

Practical Application Of Archetypes

When you see that reality is made of the exact same symbolism as occurs in your dreams, you can begin to make decisions and choose behaviours that incorporate the power of this same symbolism. Behave in an intelligent and conscious… Seek More

Patterns In Human Awareness

I am familiar with forces at work that behave as “Gods” do. As broad as my knowledge base may be, I do have a better grasp of some things from personal experience than others. The only Gods I have experienced… Seek More

Masculine And Feminine

Someone just told me that Taurus is a feminine sign. Feminine in having a yin polarity, yes, and you are about 49 percent female by default. All men are or you could not survive. When you hear the terms masculine… Seek More

Archetypal Intelligence

As for archetypal intelligence, archetypes have behaviour. They do have their own intelligence. This is why questions like, “What would Jesus do?” make any sense. Whether we have made the conscious decision to allow it or not, many archetypes have… Seek More

Gods Do Have Flesh

All human thought is anchored directly or indirectly to experience. Just as we establish rapport with human beings, and can fall out of rapport with human beings, we can develop connection to archetypes or social problems with archetypes. Functional magnetic… Seek More

New Gods

There are two basic realms of our archetypes. The genetic, those that arise in our consciousness from our natural development, our natural hormonal inclinations, as well as our experiences of the natural world. Our body minds are naturally equipped to… Seek More

Archetype Evolution

They say history repeats itself. The reason history repeats itself is archetypes preserve themselves, or try to, and they are capable of evolving just like organic systems. This sounding like nonsense? And we have to be conscious enough to break… Seek More
