From C.G.Jung Dream Interpretation Ancient and Modern. A compilation of excerpts from a seminar series. Chapter 3 written by Rivkah Scharf titled "Synesius of Cyrene: Treatise on Dream Visions" (AD 370-AD 415)
Dreams "hint at what will happen in reality. They are wise but by no means clear. It is part of their wisdom, however, that they are unclear, because hidden from man the gods lead their lives."
"...dream prophecy is at the highest level...,because it originates in man himself, coming from within and representing the special property of each soul.. Just as the the spirit contains images of what exists in reality, the soul contains images of what will come to be, because the same relation exists between between spirit and soul as between what is and what will be..."
"[Fantasy]...is the primary body of the soul."
"...From birth onward the soul consists of two lives and thus walks on a dual path."

"Multiform and shifting in its outward manifestation, myth nevertheless follows fixed laws...Product of a cultural period in which life had not yet been broken away from the harmony of nature, it shares with nature that unconscious lawfulness which is always lacking in the works of free reflection. Everywhere there is a system, everywhere cohesion; in every detail the expression of a great fundamental law whose abundant manifestations demonstrate its inner truth and natural necessity."-- Johann Jacob Bachofen

"The psyche...consists essentially of images. It is a series of images in the truest sense, not an accidental juxtaposition or sequence, but a structure that is throughout full of meaning and purpose; it is a picturing of vital activities." Jung
This will be my last quote from "Shamanism and the Psychology of C.G. Jung by Robert E. Ryan. The last chapters of the book are specific methods and experiences throughout numerous cultures. I hope you have enjoyed a small taste of shamanism while reading the quotes.

This is a good poem to memorize and bring to mind often:

"This is not a journey for the feet; the feet bring us only from land to land; nor need you think of coach and ship to carry you away; all this order of things you must set aside and refuse to see; you must close the eyes and call instead upon another vision which is to be waked within you, a vision, the birth-right of all, which few turn to use." --Plotinus
This journey refers to the dark, watery, narrow and treacherous road where one will either be transformed or slip into psychosis.
"...the dark realm of the unknown psyche holds a fascinating and irresistibly attraction which becomes more and more overpowering the further we penetrate into it." --R.E. Ryan
