The True Importance of Archetypes in Your Life


“There are no conclusive arguments against the hypothesis that these archetypal figures are endowed with personality at the outset and are not just secondary personalizations.

In so far as the archetypes do not represent mere functional relationships, they manifest themselves as daimones, as personal agencies. In this form they are felt as actual experiences and are not ‘figments of the imagination,’ as rationalism would have us believe.”     

–Carl G. Jung (Swiss Psychologist and Psychiatrist, 1875-1961)   

(This extraordinarily important insight is from #388 in the Collected Works, Volume 5)

“Symbols of Transformation (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.5)” (C. G. Jung)
