Dream 306 The dreamer was a woman who was looking around a room only noticing there was a lot of other people. She saw a tall dark stranger staring at her. He had bright grey eyes that glowed
in the dark. She initially thought he had a mustache and beard and somewhat disheveled blonde hair so that he looked like a mountain man. A long black trench coat completed his mountain-man appearance. They were locked in a gaze at each other before she finally looked away. She decided that she would not look at the stranger again.
This intense stranger is a form of the shadow archetype with mystical penetrating eyes. He represents a civilized form of the savage masculine. The strength that is almost always in the shadow is conveyed by the strong mountain man image. He is a man of action who is beckoning her to use his strength.
The thought is that he is a civilized natural man of action who is part of her subconscious. This part of her mind is urging her to use his strength to inform her actions so that she is more assertive. The eyes are the windows to the soul and his eyes are light glowing in the dark.
The dream is being mystical. It is implying that using this strength to be assertive will change her soul. Using the strength of the shadow to support positive behavior is called using the shadow in service to the ego.
She will see the light if she follows the dream’s advice. As usual, it is changing the shadow that most affects our behavior. Melding all the archetypes together so that the person functions best results in good mental health.
