"Symbols are the vehicles of meaning in the unconscious.  Once we take the time to learn how to give them life, we begin to understand their language."

The Divine Child Archetype:
An Archetype of Spiritual Love, 
Unity and Integration


At their core, after all the swirling possibilities, the template, the prototype (archetype) remains the same.  This is called multi-valency.  What is so fascinating about archetypes is this ability to transcend one meaning, one identity. 

Archetypes exist within us-- whether we recognize these energies or not...  

 

Jung, certainly, was compelled to understand everything about the Archetypal Psyche.  It's just the way Archetypes work-- they appear as characters in life, everywhere and in everyone.  They multiply in meaning (note "motifs" such as "circus motif" but they retain a form, a consistent core form of energy that can be shuffled and reinvented to suit individual experiences.
