The Archetype and the Psyche
Healing The Soul Volume 2 – By David Lilley
Homeopathy is archetypal medicine, able to summon, from the forces of Nature, the archetype vested through similarity with the very attributes necessary to overcome the errant ego-self. Acting at the level of the psyche, homeopathy frees the soul of the legacy of the past, reunites Yin and Yang and restores the soul’s sovereignty. In Healing the Soul volume two, David escorts his reader into the mystical and mythical world of the psyche and the deep unconscious: the realm of the archetype and the hero soul! Here, he also invokes and profiles the shades of certain historic archetypes: Isaac Newton, Mary Cotton and Harold Shipman.
Dr. David Lilley provides some of the most poetic modern writings about homeopathy and materia medica. His insights about human nature and about life itself are inspirational and will help you connect everything in the universe with everything else!
Healing is inseparable from the spiritual path the soul traverses on its hero’s journey towards individuation or Self-realisation. The journey is fraught with difficulties, challenges and obstacles. The cunning opponent that confronts the soul along the way and hinders its progress is the ego-self, a pseudo-being created from lack of basic trust in life and in self. Fashioned from frailty, the ego-self, insinuating into consciousness, assumes the soul’s identity and usurps the throne of the psyche. Born of delusion, the ego-self warps the soul’s view of reality. The ego-self is implicit in all wrong thinking, wrong feeling and wrong acting; it is the disease from which the soul suffers.
Disease of the soul becomes disease of the mind and body: the vehicles of the soul. The psyche is the field of disease contention; both traveller and guide need to be familiar with this mysterious terrain and the forces arrayed there. The soul’s adversary, the ego-self, is an archetype drawn by affinity from the timeless archives of human behaviour: a unique energy field that mantles and perturbs the life of the soul, distancing the sacred feminine (Yin) and masculine (Yang) principles within the psyche, creating the disease dynamic that disarms the soul and enthrones the imposter ego-self.
