40. Collective Unconscious – Throat Chakra – Fruit of Life
The collective unconscious is held within the shared stories, memories, instincts, and experiences common to all mankind. Carl Jung saw these patterns as archetypes that were manifested through dreams and behaviors. These collective shadows are influenced by ancestral experiences that shaped science, religion and morality. The throat chakra holds the stories of our collective unconscious. These stories were passed on in the oral tradition of storytelling. The throat holds the archetypal story of man’s loss of innocence etched in the shadows of the collective psyche.
By shedding light on the shadowy stories and myths held within the collective unconscious we see them for what they are. From here we can begin to share healed stories that shed light for others to see. Humanities goal is to awaken the collective unconscious to become conscious of its choices.
Message: It is time for you to reclaim the wisdom that is within you. Look at the old stories of your life and see the wisdom hiding among the fears and gifts. This will help you speak your truth and share it with others from a place of peaceful power. Words spoken with love and wisdom are the most powerful gifts you can give to the world.
“The collective unconscious – so far as we can say anything about it at all – appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious” – Carl Jung
