If we want to interpret a dream correctly, we need a thorough knowledge of the conscious situation at that moment, because the dream contains its unconscious complement, that is, the material which the conscious situation has constellated in the unconscious. Without this knowledge it is impossible to interpret a dream correctly, except by a lucky fluke. ~Carl Jung, CW 8, Para 477

Paulette Turcotte's insight:
"We always find in the patient a conflict which at a certain point is connected with the great problems of society. Hence, when the analysis is pushed to this point, the apparently individual conflict of the patient is revealed as a universal conflict of his environment and epoch. The old religions with their sublime and ridiculous, their friendly and fiendish symbols did not drop from the blue, but were born of this human soul that dwells within us at this moment. All those things, their primal forms, live on in us and may at any time burst in upon us with annihilating force, in the guise of mass-suggestions against which the individual is defenseless. Our fearsome gods have only changed their names: they now rhyme with ism."

Dreams, Calling, Suffering, and Individuation: Finding Light in the Darkness

Dreams, Calling, Suffering, and Individuation: Finding Light in the Darkness | Jung, Dreams, Mysticism and the Shamanic | Scoop.it

Working with dreams allows us to tap into the psyche, which leads us in a certain direction in the process of becoming more whole, a process Jung referred to as individuation.Jung often focused on how individuation was about leading us back into the collective. With depth psychology, you learn that the way out is through, says Jungian analyst Fanny Brewster….

Dreaming as Response: The Global Dream Initiative

Dreaming as Response: The Global Dream Initiative | Jung, Dreams, Mysticism and the Shamanic | Scoop.it
When we are dreaming, what is it in response to? When you work with dreams from an animated point of view, notes Stephen Aizenstat, who pioneered the process of DreamTending, it brings the dream to life. When one comes into a relationship with the image, it allows the image its own innate intelligence, and it can speak to us what it knows Aizenstat founded the Global Dream Initiative™ , whose vision it is to “unite individuals and organizations in listening to the landscapes and creatures of the world as they speak through the images of dream.” The vision of GDI also suggests that “through the intelligence of dreams, we aspire to listen to the voice of the earth and serve as a source of education, orientation, and support for dreamers worldwide.”

Paulette Turcotte's insight:
The spiritual climax is reached at the moment when life ends. Human life, therefore, is the vehicle of the highest perfection it is possible to attain; it alone generates the karma that makes it possible for the dead man to abide in the perpetual light of the Voidness without clinging to any object, and thus to rest on the hub of the wheel of rebirth, freed from all illusion of genesis and decay.

Carl Jung on “Illusion” - Anthology

Carl Jung on “Illusion” - Anthology | Jung, Dreams, Mysticism and the Shamanic | Scoop.it
A blog dedicated to the Life, Work and Legacy of Carl Jung
Paulette Turcotte's insight:
What is "illusion"? By what criterion do we judge something to be an illusion? Does anything exist for the psyche that we are entitled to call illusion? What we are pleased to call illusion may be for the psyche an extremely important life-factor, something as indispensable as oxygen for the body—a psychic actuality of overwhelming significance. Presumably the psyche does not trouble itself about our categories of reality; for it, everything that world is real. The investigator of the psyche must not confuse it with his consciousness, else he veils from his sight the object of his investigation. On the contrary, to recognize it at all, he must learn to see how different it is from consciousness. Nothing is more probable than that what we call illusion is very real for the psyche—for which reason we cannot take psychic reality to be commensurable with conscious reality. ~Carl Jung, CW 16, Para 111

Ancestral Healing: Insights on Animism & Shamanism—Summary Article of an Interview with Dr. Daniel Foor with Bonnie Bright PhD | Jung, Dreams, Mysticism and the Shamanic | Scoop.it

Everyone who is ancestrally disconnected from indigenous culture, can find the possibility of reclaiming animist, earth-honoring, soulful depth level relationship with your own ancestors, practices, and community, insists psychotherapist and teacher/practitioner of practical animism and earth-based spirituality, Dr. Daniel Foor, in an in-depth conversation for Depth Insights™ 


There are literally thousands of intact cultures on earth that continue to maintain daily relationship with their ancestors. We have a natural human capacity to engage in direct, nourishing, helpful relationship. We need the reconnection. 


The others, the not-human ones, miss us, and we desperately need to get our framework for how to live and how to relate well with the others back on track”—not just spiritually but politically and culturally, as well. (Click title for more)

Working With Consciousness - Insights From a Dream  

Working With Consciousness - Insights From a Dream   | Jung, Dreams, Mysticism and the Shamanic | Scoop.it
This is an Excerpted  piece :

"To appreciate the conflict revealed by your dream we perceive that the issue is the lesser coniunctio. The opposites desire to come together but have not yet transformed through the conscious realization of Shadow. The vulnerabilities and defenses of the feminine (Yin) in relation to the masculine (Yang) are revealed. It is not dealing with your sister or your cousin or any personal sense of self. 

The dream figures are personifications of impersonal impulses and dynamics beneath conscious awareness and are merely revealing the stage that is manifesting. These are not to be appropriated by the ego of the surface mind. Powerlessness, until maturation occurs, always calls for anger and rage as defenses to the vulnerability. The infantile power drive is instinctual and salvational.

As maturation occurs, we come into new parts of ourselves that can respond to vulnerability differently. This is what your dream is revealing. The unconscious is reflecting development. The vulnerable masculine strikes out against the feminine and the feminine realizes it has resources to overcome the masculine infliction yet, as it is in an earlier stage, inflicts back with fire (anger and rage_. This is lesser coniunctio where the unconscious Shadow appears. This will be followed by separation, integration, and, eventually, the greater coniunctio, where the opposites transform into complement and desire to dance together in harmony. 

 Witness without appropriating and the ego can easily handle the mysteries of the unconscious. As you make conscious what was unconscious a miracle happens....the dynamic process is allowed to unfold naturally. What delays the process is the ego's misuse of power and self- centeredness. 

 The dream dynamics are taking place in the deep emotional, instinctual, and sensate layers of beingness. Best to witness the genius and wisdom of the healing and maturational dynamics of the bodyful.

Paulette Turcotte's insight:
We have here a question: "How is it that we create symbols in dreams? How can we be sure that the interpretation is correct, especially when there are no associations?" That is, of course, a very practical and fundamental question. I had not taken it up here because I took it for granted that you understood the theory of dream analysis. We are by no means sure that dreams have symbolic meaning, and we don't know that the interpretation is correct, but we make the hypothesis that a dream means something. Suppose one has a case that presents a difficult problem and one has come to an impasse in the analysis, there are neurotic symptoms, one has tried hypnosis and other methods, but nothing works. Then where is the key to unlock that door?

Paulette Turcotte's curator insight, August 15, 2017 7:33 PM
The transcendent function does not proceed without aim and purpose, but leads to the revelation of the essential man. It is in the first place a purely natural process, which may in some cases pursue its course without the knowledge or assistance of the individual, and can sometimes forcibly accomplish itself in the face of opposition. The meaning and purpose of the process is the realization, in all its aspects, of the personality originally hidden away in the embryonic germplasm; the production and unfolding of the original, potential wholeness. The symbols used by the unconscious to this end are the same as those which mankind has always used to express wholeness, completeness, and perfection: symbols, as a rule, of the quaternity and the circle. For these reasons I have termed this the individuation process. This natural process of individuation served me both as a model and guiding principle for my method of treatment. ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Paras 186-187
