The contents of the unconscious are called archetypes. Jung referred to the archetypes as primordial and mythological images. We inherit the outlines of the archetypes instinctually, fill them in with colors and details of our own individual experiences, attach meaning to them, and project them into the world. The archetypes serve as gatekeepers to guide us on our sacred journey to fulfill our Higher Purpose. Grateful acknowledgment to Plato, Jung, Joseph Campbell and Caroline Myss.
