Man’s ultimate concern must be expressed symbolically because symbolic language alone is able to express the ultimate. -Paul Tillich
It is through symbols that man consciously or unconsciously lives, works and has his being. -Thomas Carlyle
You might think this simple test (which is based on nothing scientific at all) is a little silly. And while you are not wrong to think that, I assure you that you will be surprised with how accurate the results are. This is because your answers are based on your subconscious, and what it is drawn to.
“The subconscious is recognized as the source of creativity, intuition, inspiration, inner knowing, interconnectedness, and spiritual enlightenment. Within this realm reality shifts and expands, creating a matrix that is far more elastic and multi-dimensional than is perceived by the conscious mind.”
She goes on to say, “The messages we receive from our dreams and the primordial symbols, or archetypes handed down to us from our ancestors, inform us about what is unique, authentic, and sacred to each of us. When we heed these messages we are following the path of our soul’s evolution.”
“These symbols and archetypes are essential elements of the collective unconscious, the universal intra-psychic structuring device innate to humans. What is so poignant here is that words are unnecessary to communicate or convey a message. The symbol, the representational picture or image, conveys the complete thought, concept, or ideal without the use of words to describe it; the proverbial, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.'”
