Anyone is bound to ask. Why do I care about mystery, or other, adventures! There may be a lot of adventures in your personal story. There are a lot in mine too.
“It baffles many people at first to hear that the imagination is an organ of coherent communication, that it employs a highly refined, complex language of symbols to express the contents of the unconscious.” Robert A. Johnson, Inner Work
Everybody has a self in the game, but not everybody has a “Self” in the game. We all have two sides to us, which are often referred to as "the little self" and the Big Self.
Having an unknown side can be a big deal and play a big part in our lives. We are in an archetypal matrix of sorts, which can affect personal behaviors, abilities, and choices.
A conversation about awareness and higher intelligence necessarily includes two sides of us. These sides exist in all of us, big and small, aware and hidden.
One side is our ego driven side, the one everybody has.
The other side is our “Higher Nature” – with a personal meaning. Everybody has this side too, Divine Nature.
Mother Nature presents in every culture, every language, a simple thought, a butterfly -- or the grandiose awakening of the sun!
Mother Nature reaches out with messages of love. And she brings about calamities! The two-sided aspect of Mother Nature is typical of an archetype. Unraveling our life experiences, especially when we experience ourselves, isn't always easy. But it leads to help and healing.
And wouldn’t it be great if there were a kind of internal road map? There is!! Archetypes have a way of knitting the stories together, all the characters, all the lives.
! I have a story to share with you.
Many people are talking about archetypes these days in the same “breath” as all the other “hocus pocus” life remedies our there!!
But remember, this is about inviting a little Spirit Magic into life. Magic can mean miracles, synchronicity, and serendipity. It can mean curiosity and wonder!! It can mean that there is a world that works inside of us like a well-oiled machine! But it isn’t a well-oiled machine a lot of the time.
Our outer experiences have inner sources of vibrancy, sometimes not.
Just think of a Divine Image – I have one in the Ballerina and the Angel.
