arl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of a neopsychoanalytic school of psychology, which he named Analytical Psychology.
Jung’s unique and broadly influential approach to psychology has emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, world religion and philosophy. Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician for most of his life, much of his life’s work was spent exploring other realms, including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the arts.
His most notable contributions include his concept of the psychological archetype, his theory of synchronicity and the collective unconscious – also known as “a reservoir of the experiences of our species.”
Jung emphasized the importance of balance and harmony. He cautioned that modern humans rely too heavily on science and logic and would benefit from integrating spirituality and appreciation of the unconscious realm. Jungian ideas are not typically included in curriculum of most major universities’ psychology departments, but are occasionally explored in humanities departments.
Regardless of whether you are aware of this fact or not, whether you care or not—it does not change the fact that the Battle of Armageddon has already begun and you as an individual, and all of us in society are caught up in the middle of the greatest and most destructive conflict the human race has ever experienced. However, this version of the Battle of Armageddon is not a tangible battle of human slaughter and carnage taking place across the landscape of some rather uninspiring real estate in the Middle East—as was predicted in the Book of Revelations. Rather, this very real and destructive Battle of Armageddon is currently taking place right now in the domain of human consciousness—it is taking place within your own mind.
he battle of Magh Rath, fought A.D. 637, is one of the most important recorded in the Irish annals; it is mentioned by Adamnan, Abbot of Iona; by the Annalist Tighernach; also in the Chronicon Scotorum, the Annals of the Four Masters, and O’Flaherty’s Ogygia. The entry of Tighernach is as follows :-” A.D. 637.-The Battle of Magh Bath was fought by Domhnall, son of Aedh, and by the sons of Aedh Slaine, (but Domhnall at this time ruled Temoria), in which fell Congal Cacth, King of Uladh, and Faelan, with many nobles; and in which fell Suibhne, the son of Colman Cuar.” O’Flaherty’s entry is much more minute and copious. We quote from Hely’s translation :- “In the year 637, the battle of Moy-rath, in Ulster, is fought by Domnald the Second, King of Ireland, and the sons of Aid Slany, monarch of Ireland, against Congall Olaen, the son of Scandal, King of Ulidia, who was [had been] vanquished in a battle at Dun Kethern, in the year 629, and banished into Britain for his factious and aspiring measures. He levied a great army for this battle, composed of Albanian Scots, with their king Domnall Brec and his brothers, of Picts, Anglo-Saxons, and Britons. In this battle, which continued for seven days, Congall was killed, the rest obliged to fly in the utmost consternation, and Suwney, the son of Cuar, lord of Dalaradia, was drowned. Concerning this war, Adamnan says as follows:-‘ This prediction was fulfilled in our days, in the war of Rath, when Domnal Bree, the grandson of Aidan, was depopulating, without any provocation, the provinces of Domnill, the grandson of Ainmireeh; and, from that day to this, they have been reduced to the last extremity by foreigners: which gives me the most heartfelt concern.'” But the longest and most interesting account of this battle is found in a historical tale of the fifteenth century, the “Cath Muighe Rath”, translated and edited by Dr. O’Donovan, for the Irish Archeological Society, in 1842 and which the editor says has been evidently compiled from earlier accounts.
Martenitsa is one of the oldest and most interesting symbols. For its meaning and origin there are different views. Some researchers seek connection with the time when Tsar Kaloyan lived, others returned further back in the past – in the era of Asparuh. There are those who try to impose their belief that the oldest martenitsa is from the land of Iran. Overall, however, all these statements are based mostly on personal desires and are not supported by solid arguments. I think the truth is quite different and it may surprise many of my countrymen.
Although we do not know the details of how much further in time the tangled roots of white and red thread goes, we instinctively feel that it concerns something important, something which has arisen in the past but due to its importance has survived until today. This is no accident, it is just instinct, many of our scientists believe that the martenitsa has an apotropaic impact, i.e. it is a charm having magical powers and ability to protect the holder .
This is a short artistic segment that I created and it is very much inspired by the philosophical side of Nature, trees, and the mysterious secrets of the runes. For the runes themselves are the secrets to all other secrets in the universe. Also, the video explores the profound and deep psychic states of our ancestors and the Druids and Prist class of the early ages and antiquity. It is also a tribute and aknowledgement to one of the greatest minds and thinkers in the field of Anthropology and Comparative Religion of the last century, Sir James George Frazer.
THE WORSHIP OF TREES
Are trees sacred? Did our ancestors worshiped them like living spirits and embraced them as a part of life? Let’s explore and dig into the deep and of the collective unconscious and the psyche of those people, and of the fertile soil of the lands and vast European forests. Let us try to re-discover our hidden past and obscure roots and the meaning and purpose of it all. The text in the video is respectively taken from the book “The Golden Bough“ by the Scottish Anthropologist and writer – Sir James George Frazer. The footage that I took and used in the video, have been taken from the woodland area of the Northern part of Bulgaria. Right in the heart of my hometown of Veliko Tarnovo.
Ask the average person to describe the aesthetic appearance of a typical ‘Viking’, and immediately, from the depths of their cognition, they will invariably begin with the horned helmet. The stereotypical and long-clichéd, off-the-rack, standard-issue ‘Viking’ with the rugged, fierce expression of extreme violence, while constantly sporting his twin-horned accessory of murder, mayhem, pillage and rape. An image which has become so deeply entrenched within the subconscious of the human mind, that for most people to even imagine a Viking not wearing a horned helmet is inconceivable; even laughable.
Yet, not a single archaeological record of a Viking horned helmet has ever been uncovered. Nor will a Viking horned helmet ever be discovered. The so-called horned helmet of the Vikings simply did not exist, and no Viking head has ever been adorned with a horned helmet, except in the illustrations of countless novels, historical text books and popular comic books, and along with the portrayal of Vikings in cinemas and on TV screens.
A FASCINATING ENCOUNTER WITH ONE OF THE GREAT PIONEERS OF OUR AGE
In the multicultural west we are told to say Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas or these days Happy Holidays as to not offend others. Lana tells about the true origins of newcomer holidays such as Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. Where did these holidays originate? Are they original? Why are they also in December, like Christmas? She’ll also talk about the true origins of Christmas, which is entirely borrowed from Yule, the pre-Christian European celebration of the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas are all imposters, culturally appropriating from the ancient European Winter Solstice celebration. Learn about the myth, symbolism and tradition of Yule.
The Vikings hold a particular place in the history of the West, both symbolically and in the significant impact they had on Northern Europe. Magnus Magnusson’s indispensable study of this great period presents a rounded and fascinating picture of a people who, in modern eyes, would seem to embody striking contradictions. They were undoubtedly pillagers, raiders and terrifying warriors, but they were also great pioneers, artists and traders – a dynamic people, whose skill and daring in their exploration of the world has left an indelible impression a thousand years on.
