The Journey to Self through SoulCollage®

The Ego, Jung tells us, is that part of the pyche that we think of as 'I'. Our conscious intelligence. Our everyday brain that thinks, plans and runs the show of our day-to-day life. The Self, as Jung defined it, is a greater entity, which includes the Ego but also incorporates the Personal and Collective Unconscious. Dreams and intuitions come from the Self. The archetypes of the unconscious dwell there. It is, Jung believed, the sphere of the Soul ~~Steven Pressfield. 'The War of Art'

"I would love to live like a river flows,
 carried by the surprise
 of its own unfolding".

Feeling blue/Depression card

Until I work out how to add more pictures UNDERNEATH what I've already written for a post, I'm going to have to do a new post for each picture.

This is my second completed card. I use the word "completed" because I've done quite a few cards intuitively which I know are not yet finished, although I consider most of my cards could be added to in the future - after all, I'm a work in progress!

This is my Feeling Blue/Depression card (Committee suit). It helped me realise that my 'depression' is really not that bad - it's just normal 'down times' that everyone experiences from time to time - and that I can just ride it out and I'll come out OK on the other side.
