Re: Vice Presidents

Peggy,
I don't see anything in your last post that offers any further insights to the dream. I do get the impression that because you have never felt protected and supported as you do with Rozie, plus the fact you are at that age where lose is a usual thought, as well as all the people you know who are suffering, these factors likely play a major role in your fears. A primary purpose of dreams is to help resolve emotional conflicts. I take a position that goes a bit beyond what Jung expounded that dreams are naturally and 'intentionally' therapeutic. Much like the immune system is the body's defense against physical illness so too the dream a defense against emotional illness. The dream is trying to help the dreamer resolve emotional issues.

As for the inclusion of Bush and Mondale in the dream, your earlier experiences could very well have played into this. And because dreams do address issues from a day or two prior to the dream, recent news about Bush's illness may have been a stimulus for their inclusion as symbols.

Your remark about wanting to die 15 minutes apart from Rozie brought back memories I have of a close aunt and uncle who passed away within a day of each other. The uncle had been ill for some time and hospitalized but my aunt had no indications of illness, She died of a heart attack the day after he passed away.

You speak of your art. Jung believe heavily in using the creative aspects as a way of treating emotional conflicts as well as developing wholeness. Jung influenced the practice of art therapy with his respect for visual imagery and the profound psychological meaning he found inherent in artwork. Jungian art therapists may suggest art as a means to explore dreams and archetypal images in search of personal meaning.

Archetypal art therapy
A post-Jungian archetypal therapist would be less likely to translate an art image into a concept but would instead imaginatively explore the metaphors within an image. First named by James Hillman in 1970, archetypal therapy emphasizes staying with an image through imaginative exploration-the image includes the artwork, the client’s behavior in art making, and the therapist’s interactions. Archetypal psychology as represented n the work of Carl Jung, James Hillman, Mary Watkins, Patricia Berry and David Miller involves stepping away from the interpretation of symbols and archetypes toward the use of metaphor in understanding one’s imagery. “Listening” to the voice of the image through description and active imagination helps to deepen the qualities of the imagery and their meaning.

You may want to read about Jung's art therapy as a tool in your 'recovery' as well as the fears you have about death. Here is a link that will provide some insights Psyche & Muse: Creative Entanglements with the Science of the Soul.
