HOW TO FACILITATE SELF-TRANSFORMATION or "IN HABENTIBUS SYMBOLUM FACILIS EST TRANSITUS" (Mylius).
Johann Mylius, an Alchemical writer, stated the following: "For those who have the symbol, the passage is easy." The unconscious communicates with our consciousness, via images or symbols (for example, dream images), the necessary psychological information in order to correct or compensate the psychological imbalances that our egos have created. Therefore, it is important that
“NO HAY UNA RECETA UNIVERSAL PARA VIVIR. CADA UNO DE NOSOTROS LLEVA POR DENTRO LA FORMA DE VIVIR.” (Jung) Hay una diferencia entre las imagenes que provienen del inconsciente (tales como las imagenes de los suenos) y las imagenes de nuestro ego/Yo. Las imagenes de los suenos no son creadas por el ego/Yo y, por tanto, son representaciones mas acertadas de una vida significativa y autentica que quiere ser vivida y manifestada en nuestra vida externa. De otro lado, recetas para
“DESCUBRE TU CENTRO INTERIOR Y SERAS SANADO” (Proverbio Taoista) El Alma se comunica a traves de imagenes internas y, gracias a ellas, el Centro en nuestras vidas puede visualizado en su pluralidad imaginativa. La meta de descubrir estas imagenes y de sostenerlas firmemente en nuestra mente puede ser facilitada por nuestros suenos nocturnos. Aquellos individuos que han cultivado, acojido, y meditado, por muchos anos, la poesia de los suenos han descubierto las propiedades cur
"FIND YOUR CENTER AND YOU WILL BE HEALED" (Taoist Proverb).
Soul speaks through images and, thanks to them, the Center in our lives can be visually manifested in its imaginal plurality. The task of discovering those images and holding them firmly in our minds can be facilitated by our nightly dreams. Those individuals who have cherished, embraced, and meditated, for many years, on the poetry of dreaming can attest to the healing properties of the dream images that emanate fr
"THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL RECIPE FOR LIVING. EACH OF US CARRIES HIS OWN LIFE-FORM WITHIN HIM" (Jung). There seems to be a difference between the images from the unconscious (such as dream images) and the images from the ego. Dream images are not created by the ego, and they seem to be accurate representations of an authentic and meaningful life that wants to be experienced and lived outwardly. On the other hand, recipes for healing traumatic events and for living life may usuall
"EVERY EVENT IN THE VISIBLE WORLD IS THE EFFECT OF AN 'IMAGE', THAT IS, OF AN IDEA IN THE UNSEEN WORLD." (Wilhelm-Introduction to The I Ching).
Likewise and unbeknownst to us, a human life is the interplay of the ego and the images from the inner world. Therefore, it is helpful not only to become aware of those archetypal images within the Psyche that shape our lives but, also, that consciousness develop a consistent, enduring, and collaborative relationship with the symboli
"THE INDIVIDUAL MUST DEVOTE HIMSELF TO THE WAY WITH ALL HIS ENERGY FOR IT IS ONLY BY MEANS OF HIS INTEGRITY THAT HE CAN GO FURTHER, AND HIS INTEGRITY ALONE CAN GUARANTEE THAT HIS WAY WILL NOT TURN OUT TO BE AN ABSURD MISADVENTURE (Jung).
If an individual looks within, with the help of his/her dreams, the Way will reveal itself; then, if this individual dedicates himself/herself to integrate and to manifest the Way in life, integrity will live in his/her heart. The 'absurd mi
"WHEN YOUR INNER WORLD COMES INTO ORDER, YOUR OUTER WORLD WILL COME INTO ORDER" (I CHING).
The I Ching or The Book of Changes describes the synchronistic relationship between our inner lives and the outside world. It seems that, when we are consciously embracing and affirming the deepest aspects of our souls, which are manifested visually in our dreams, a meaningful coincidence of 'doors opening up', of 'favorable events' taking place, of 'things going well' begin to take pl
Carl G. Jung wrote the following sentence: "ONLY WHAT IS REALLY ONESELF HAS THE POWER TO HEAL."
It seems that, when we are willing to embrace humbly and assiduously that which is within us, which is above and beyond our ego's perspectives and desires, then, more profound, meaningful and sustained healing of emotional struggles can take place.
