Hello again. Does it feel weird to get two different posts from me for two days straight? Don’t get used to it. I can’t keep this up forever!
If you haven’t read yesterday’s post yet, I suggest you check it out before you read this one, as it explains why I’m doing things differently this week.
Today, Tuesday, April 9, 2013, I’ll be a guest blogger at Feminism and Religion, hosted by Gina Messina-Dysert. The title of my post is Incarnating the Mystery with Psychological Awareness. Click here for the link. Here’s the address in case there’s a glitch in the system: http://feminismandreligion.com/
Remember, don’t get discouraged if my post isn’t up when you go there. Just try again later. Time zones are obviously an issue so we asked the blog hosts to try to publish by 8 A.M. Eastern Standard Time (US). Some may get an earlier start, however.
Don’t forget about the give-away at my website at http://www.jeanraffa.com. You’ll find an explanation and description of the “prizes” there!
I hope you enjoyed my guest post at Cheryl’s Jung at Heart blog yesterday. If you haven’t stopped by yet, you can probably go today and for several days to come. But if she moves it to the archives, just check the address from yesterday’s post and you’ll still be able to find it. Enjoy.
Ego and God-Image: Part VI
[T]he most important relationship of childhood, the relation to the mother, will be compensated by the mother archetype as soon as detachment from the childhood
I read your post on FAR as well as Depth List; wonderful! I will be ordering your latest book today as I’m excited to explore your insights further. Tending the creative fire resonates powerfully, especially as I recently completed a pilgrimage memoir. Not only did the pilgrimage provide for inner healing and guidance, but the writing of it furthered the process. I like what you’ve said so far about duality and the baggage it carries with it; one duality I’ve been struggling with is dark and light, how so many people fear the dark and, yet, look at the incredible growth within darkness (womb, cave, core, rest, renewal). Blessings and thank you for your contributions to healing.
Hi Darladiane. I really appreciate your comment, and thank you for ordering my book. I’ve written a lot about duality in it, and there’s an entire section devoted to “light” as a metaphor for psychological consciousness. My thesis is that by descending into the dark and scrutinizing our unknown inner contents with the light of awareness, we discover its richness and potential for growth. Hence, the dark is not something to be feared, but something to be explored and brought into awareness. I hope you enjoy Healing the Sacred Divide, and I hope you’ll let me know your responses to it! Thanks for stopping by. Jeanie
