Dream Healing 376: Mythical Name Helps Tie Into Archetypal Energy

After I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 24 years ago, I started in therapy with a Jungian dream analyst. This changed my life because I learned to tap into archetypal energies. The name was given to me by a Native American in a dream was Life Force Dancer. I emblazoned this emblem on a T-shirt. This name was symbolic of the combination of energies that would help send my multiple sclerosis (MS) into remission. This will be explained in my coming book Mission Remission

  1. I used to be extremely sick and in my sickness I heard native drums and shamanic songs I never even heard before. Also, many visions came to me I cope with till this day.

    I must say I am from a small country in Europe and wasn’t at all introduced with Native American customs. I never knew a form of a vision could be so clear, like seeing through the eyes of an actual person and living that person’s life.

    I saw myself actually being native woman and I introduced a person that was sitting next to me in ancient circle in a real life, years from beating my sickness.
    I believe that it might sound weird to you, since I have no native blood in my veins to be saying such things. But I am grateful for those who sent me this energy that brought me to having normal life today.

    Until now, I encounter places I saw in my dreams or visions that are from around the Grand Canyon region as I realized many years after having them by encountering some pictures of the landscapes on the Internet that was in fact Grand Canyon in the first place, although I was never, ever there physically.

    1. Dear Shaddix,

      What you describe is an example of the collective subconscious. Sometimes the thoughts and images in our dreams do not come from our own conscious necessarily, but come from mankind’s consciousness. I believe, along with Carl Jung, that images can come into our dreams that are from the collective subconscious. The idea is that any thought or image any human being has ever had in the history of civilized time is in the collective subconscious and potentially available to any human consciousness.

      Carl Jung was very interesting in formulating these ideas. We do not know how these occur and I believe we will not know for some time how the occur, but I do believe eventually we will figure out how it does occur. What you experienced is anecdotal evidence that there is something about human consciousness that is connected.

      I believe that your posting on my board is an example of what Carl Jung would call synchronicity. Synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence.

      I think it is a meaningful coincidence that you posted about these experiences on a psychologist’s board who lives in the state where these experiences and images occurred, Arizona.

      The meaningful coincidence does not stop there. Shortly before my multiple sclerosis went into remission, I too had an image of Native Americans doing a sacred dance around my bed while I was sleeping. The multiple sclerosis went into remission shortly thereafter.

      In my experience working with people in therapy with dreams, it is not unusual for people to have predictive dreams. Predictive dreams are one of the six major types of dreams in my world. I believe you had predictive dreams informed by the collective subconscious or collective unconscious. Welcome to my world!
