ANGELOS was the daughter of Hera and Zeus, and the grandmother of Hecate. One day she stole her mothers ointment and on applying it her face became a blazing brilliance. Hera was enraged. Angelos ran first to a house where a birthing was taking place and then to a house of mourning. Hera could not enter such places seeing them as impure. Zeus ordered Angelos to be cleansed. Her immersion took place in the still womb-like waters of the River Acheron in Hades. This was her initiation as a psychopomp and divine messenger, walking between the worlds of life and death, darkness and light, the conscious and the unconscious.
Psychological immersion describes an encounter with the inner Self. Immersive practices such as meditation, visualisation, active imagination, dream-work, ritual and creative pursuits all offer the possibility to receive messages and inspiration. With heightened intuition and clarity we can then learn to trust our journey towards wholeness. May you receive the messages you need. …..I AM IMMERSED
“ The Feminine leads us to the sharp edge of experience. There…our secrets become visible in the darkened, unvisited corners of our psyche.” Marion Woodman
“When one dreams of baptizing, taking a batch, the ocean or in water generally – you must realize you are being pushed into the unconscious for purification, you have to go into the water because of the renewal.” ….Carl Jung
