Archetypal Psychology To Know


We will start out with one way that  archetypal psychology is used to come to know.  This is an example of how archetypal psychology can help you come to know.

How does reading cards open blocks?


I had a lady sit for a reading.  

a card reading

She was interactive during the reading, always a plus.


We came to a card, the nine of coins.  

a nine of coins

On the card a woman holds the bird in the manner of falconry.  In the particular deck which I was using has the bird is opened-mouth looking at the woman who is looking at the bird.  There are some other birds flying around.   So, I asked questions from that.


“What is happening now?”


“She is talking to the bird?”  she responded.


“That is a good way to look at that. What are they saying?”


“I do not know.”


“Well make something up.”  I asked again.  “What are they saying?”


She looked at the cards. “There are other birds flying around. … The bird is asking to leave.  It wants to be let go.”


I shifted and said, “Really … ” I looked her in the eyes,  “What are you holding onto that you should let go?”


At that point the thing she was inordinately holding onto from her past fell out on the table.


When she got through telling me, I asked, “What should you do about that?”


“Let it go.” she said, looking at the card.


“What are you going to do?”


“Let it go.”


Those things that had been a problem for her lifted like a weight taken off her spirit. That which she could not see, she revealed to herself.  She came to know by associating with the symbols in the card.


Yes, it was that simple.  It was alternative knowing related to being inquisitive about the archetypal symbols that showed up.  


Like Carl Jung

carl jung

used the cards, once someone associates with archetypal symbols in the card, mental blocks get out of the way.  He comes to know.  Then the seekers knows the truth that he deep inside of himself always knew.  He solves his own problems in knowing what he already knew.


I told her nothing.  More powerfully she told herself.   


It is that simple.  That was not because I was so smart that I gave her some advice.  I had told her nothing.  


The reader does not have to be smart or a psychic

to give a good helpful read.  


Considering inquisitively the archetypal symbols that appear in your experience will allow you to bypass the conscious blocks and access the subconscious knowing.  It is just ask the questions that directs the person into the symbols.  Then witness the result.


You can do this without a reader.  Consider what comes up in your life as a symbol.  Ask what is going on in the symbol.  Consider how that applies to your situation.  And in that connection you will know the results.  Almost always your subconscious has figured it out.  This is a way of knowing by using the archetypal symbols to get passed the mental blocks in your conscious mind.  You will come to know.


The Bible says ask and you shall receive.  


This psychological way of knowing make me somewhat persona non-grata among many supposed “psychic” readers.  Many of them are involved in the ego of “I am a psychic”.  Their ego will not let them think that there is an alternative knowing that makes them not essential or not that important.  Whether someone can be psychic or not is not the issue here.  We are talking about an alternative why of knowing.

[The same process can be done with dreams.]  



About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
