Like the mythic Hero who faces challenges, struggles with uncertainty and overcomes fear, we are each on a soul-journey.
Each night, while we dream, we dip into an expanded state of consciousness. This natural intelligence is our subconscious mind, which holds vast memories and deep knowing. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, describes this phenomenon in detail. Neuroscientists tell us that we experience this natural intelligence as intuition or a gut feeling while awake, but it is often censored by the conscious mind unless we are asleep or deeply relaxed.
The subconscious is not a chaotic "spam filter" for our conscious mind, where the "junk mail" of our emotional and mental lives gets dumped. Today's science now recognizes what other cultures have known for thousands of years: Our subconscious gives us insight and wisdom that is complementary, and necessary, to balance the abilities of our conscious mind.
The subconscious adds deep perception and a healing dimension to our awareness. This undervalued part of us is the doorway to the mythic dimension and collective unconscious. Journeys into this realm are transpersonal and intensely personal at the same time, expanding your awareness to include a soul-perspective.
According to mythologist Joseph Campbell, we are creating and participating in myth every day of our lives. He defines myth as "the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human culture."
