A Poem about the missing “Maiden” aspect of the human psyche.
Contrary to the trinity, this theory explains four parts. Jung spoke of the conscious, the unconscious, the anima/animus, the “gateways” to higher states of consciousness.
I understood the psyche as a trinity- conscious, subconscious and “super conscious” as the gateway through the third eye (pineal gland). My Anima is a mirror reflection of my ego, which reaches enlightenment along with my conscious self, the Anima being someone who “lives in my head” but not a different part of my psyche.
As a master of the Tarot I easily identified YHVH- a name for God, as the court cards of the Tarot. I understand the King is my conscious ego self, the Queen is my Animus, the Knight many would say the knight represents the “son” of God, the Maiden is my inner magickal child (fairy).
This poem was written while channeling.
I’ve got a royal family in my head
The king of the Y- the father of time
The Queen of the H- the mother of the line
The Knight of the V- the brother to see
The Princess of the H- The young feminine psyche
Together my psyche spells YHVH
Father mother son daughter
The four parts of my mind
I have been living in a trinity
Incomplete, unknown to me
I found there is more than just the three
I have rescued the maiden from obscurity
Giving her life through word and deed
Making her conscious, breathing her back to reality,
Weaving her story through me,
Three times three so mote it be
Arise Maiden of the psyche!
Walk again in the hearts of men
Inspire the Artist once more,
Abstract muse of poetic lore
Strike your blade, open the door
As Queen Kali lays waste to the old forms
The old Gods cannot weather the storm
Princess bring us fresh mythologies of astral technologies
The first illustration depicts the psychology we are born with. The negative light of the subconscious and the positive light of the conscious.
Next we have your idea of God or Creatrix energy which connects to your higher self (spiritual self). The Higher Self then “Manifests” in the form of the two “Minds”, the mind of form (conscious) and the mind of understanding (subconscious).
Between the mind of Form (conscious) and the mind of Understanding (subconscious) is a Shadow. This is “THE SHADOW”. The shadow can manifest in your life as Drama, Pain, or at it’s most basic- Fear. The shadow is a negative reflection caused by ignorance.
The Subconscious and the Consciousness are “connected” by the Pineal gland.
The Pineal gland contains water, this water causes reflection like a mirror between the conscious and subconscious. The shadow of ignorance is over the mirror of the pineal.
The Positive and Negative forces of the mind cause friction on the shadow eventually Illuminating the shadow into right Understanding or the Balanced Tao of Psychology.
Oversimplified? Yes, call it Hermetic. The shadow is possibly responsible for the cultural concept of “Evil”.
Devil, D-Evil, D-Veil (the veil is the shadow over the Pineal).
As we consciously work on healing our psyche from past trauma and old patterns we are working out the shadow and bringing in the light. When the Mirror of the Pineal Gland is cleansed we can see straight through into the subconscious without Fear reflecting back at us. (When you smile the mirror smiles, when you frown so does the mirror)
Even with a partially cleansed shadow we can see the Anima/Animus within. In the book “Love Magick” by Laurie Cabot there is a guided meditation on how to meet your Inner Other.
Recent visions of Hermes have explained that I have a “black glass” through which to see into the darkness. I researched “A glass darkly”. I think Hermes was telling me that I had tempered the Shadow into a slick glass state from which I can perceive into the darkness without the illumination to see darkness in its truer state.
I am still discovering the wonderful world of my Animus as my vision of him has gone from Dracula to Buddha. I am allowed to Understand more my inner nature as I explore with the hermits lamp deep in the subconscious realm.
Hello! This is my third day as a “Blogger” and I am happy to see we have a question already! Yesterday I was speaking about the lesser known parts of our human psyche. I would like to address the question first, and then finish explaining where I left off yesterday.
Rose Vanden Eynden author of the books “So You Want to be a Medium?”, “Metatron: Invoking the Angel of God’s Presence” and “Ask a Medium” said:
“Some folks believe that spirit guides are actually the anima/animus inside us instead of a separate energy. I’d be interested to hear your theory on that question.”
The anima/animus are reflections of the outer Ego personality, mirrors plain and simple. You can argue that the anima/animus is a “separate soul” who is learning about life as they live through yours, observing from the Shadows of the subconscious. I like that theory, but I have never read anything that sounded remotely like it. I started with the theory that “Dissociative Identity Disorder” (DID- old term =Multiple Personality Disorder) was caused by several SOULS in one body- not different EGOS (personalities). I suppose we get into the muddy waters of what is possession and what is a soul vs an ego, what is a medium (hey Buy Rose’s Book). I will explore this some other time.
Spiritual Guides are beings/souls/essences with which your soul has a “contract”. Think of spirit guides as teacher/parents who chose not to incarnate, but to help you from their level of reality. A little known fact is that your Twin Flame (other part of your soul) is often your main guide. I believe we wrote what I term as a “LIFE SCRIPT” before we incarnated into our “animal body”. Your spirit guides helped you Write this Life Script as the your very own Mythological Hero’s Journey.
“I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain’t gonna lose” Queen: We are the Champions (Heroes).
I believe Everyone wrote a Hero’s or “Shero’s” Life Script. The spiritual guides are an Essential element to your success in your own Reality/Mythology.
Personal Notes – not so dry or to the point…
I also heard that my animus was where I received all of my intuition and knowledge. I contemplated this deeply and asked myself, Could I be Hermes?
Then I was instantly reminded of all the amazing and unbelievable things I have channeled and received from Hermes. I was simply not THAT brilliant. I feel/know that my inner male is truly a reflection because he has changed and evolved along with me. I have taken the very quiet time it requires to work with and know the subtle energies of the mind. The only way to become an expert is to do the work and record the data.
I remember one day having a candid conversation with my “Main” spiritual guide Hermes. I asked him how I could keep from being confused with all the different voices in my head. “Hermes do you have voices in your head?” He answered he did not have the same issue, his head was as clear as glass. Hermes had just introduced me too two more guides, Plato and Aristotle. I had grown used to Hermes, my higher self, my guru and various other spiritual guides, but adding two more teachers at this stage of the game (I was 33) was confusing. I came to understand that Plato and Aristotle were guides that you can “graduate” into as you evolve.
William Blake said Aristotle was the “Teacher of those who Know” could Blake have been in spiritual communication with Aristotle? We think So!
If you can indulge yourself by reading the great classics or gazing at masterpieces of art- you will find a spiritual essence in them. Especially with Authors, the spiritual themes are blatant outright, Art is something beyond language. Those of a creative nature have Artistic guides who inspire them- we used to call them MUSES.
Stay (Faraway and so close)
Here is Bono and U2 acting as Spirit Guides to another band.
Yesterday I began to tackle the very extensive subject matter of our psyche. I am satisfied with the information given on the Anima/Animus in the last blog. I did not mention the other two parts of the psyche, which are much more esoteric – The inner child and the “Doorway”. Perhaps we will come back to that later?
If you have any questions for “The Occultist in the Corner”- speak up!
This is my second day as a “blogger”. I am feeling good about reaching out to the world and disseminating knowledge to the best of my ability. I have often had issues coming up with topics to write about, always waiting until there was a question to answer… But not anymore! I am going to write what ever comes to mind, and I hope You like it.
Did you know there are 4 personalities or 4 parts of your psyche? It’s true. Dr Carl Jung categorized two aspects very well- The Anima and the Animus.
The Animus: The mirror image of the female ego, tucked inside the subconscious mind.
The Anima: The mirror image of the male ego, tucked inside the Subconscious mind.
“What does that mean?!” *chuckle* Yes it is intriguing.
I will explain Jungs theory in my own words based on my own subconscious experience.
I am a Female human. My Ego- ego means my personality- Is Female. Within my Subconscious mind I became aware a man was living in there. Yes the place I go for my dreams and my intuition was being haunted by a man.
I soon read that we label him the ANIMUS- the inner male personality that corresponds to my outer female personality. You may ask yourself- why do these “Personalities” correspond? How do these personalities have anything to do with one another?
To answer this question we must understand the nature of the subconscious and conscious mind- and how they work together. The conscious mind is mostly what you use when you are awake (unless you are a psychic). Your consciousness connects mostly to your LEFT brain- the brain that does math, grocery lists, and other mundane tasks that keep you breathing and in a body. The right brain is your intuitive mind where creativity of all kinds comes from, as well as dreams and all things in the “Other” category.
As a Personality (EGO) you work with your conscious mind to feed, bathe and cloth yourself- and worry about the neighbors and what Lady Gaga is up too.
Your Personality gets information from the subconscious in the form of dreams, feelings, empathy, amazing ideas, and synchronicity.
To meet and Talk To your inner other (for a female ego her inner self is male – for a male ego your inner self is female) you must connect your conscious (left brain) to your subconscious (right brain).
“Okay this ‘Occultist in the Corner’ just told me I have another person living inside me and to get intouch with them I have to get the two sides of my brain to communicate. This is Nuts!!”
Yes this is nuts for some people- crazy as a Loon! However this is REAL psychology, not the stuff they are teaching in school. Remember the Occult has been a science since before science was invented. So bear with me.
Again speaking from my own perspective as a female ego (just reverse the genders if you are a man okay?) my inner Male was a direct reflection of what my Ego Personality “THOUGHT” of men. Yes my thoughts of men created the form, shape and state of my Inner Male.
Think about that for one moment. What kinds of things do you tell yourself about the opposite sex? Really?
Having been a psychic counselor for 18 years I have heard it all. What bugs me the most is when ladies (most of my clients have been female) say “Men are all the same, I want love but none of them are good enough.”
What is she selling to her inner male when she makes statements like that? She is telling him that he is weak, immature, loud, or what ever gets on her nerves about “men”. These “dark” feelings toward men then get INJECTED into her inner male.
“And then what happens?”
Then the inner male begins to act out and behave as he is told too, and chaos ensues.
You see what ever state your inner Male is in- is what you will attract in a mate!
This is known as “Like Attracts Like” from the philosophy of Hermeticism.
So I know why that sweet and beautiful lady keeps running into Jerks! Yes I know the answer- Her inner male is a Gangster 🙂
When I was working on my inner male I had a dream that illustrated what shape my Animus was in:
I heard my shower running so I went to see who could be in my bathroom. I opened the curtain and I saw Marilyn Manson (rock star). He had open wounds, very pale skin and was shaking with anxiety. I stepped into the tub and nurtured him, bathing him saying everything was going to be okay.
I had to heal my inner Marilyn Manson. No small task I will tell you.
How did I heal my inner male? Through listening to him and being careful what I thought about “men in general”. The book “LOVE MAGICK” by Laurie Cabot (The official Witch of Salem) has a meditation in it to speak to your inner male. This was the only tool I needed.
I know I started this blog talking about the 4 different parts of the psyche- but I think I only have time to cover the 2 main parts.
If you read this Blog please comment & ask questions. Thank you ! Until tomorrow.
