Racial Memory


The father of Analytical Psychology Carl Gustav Jung posited the theory of the Collective Unconscious. This is a level of the Unconscious beyond the Personal Unconscious or Subconscious which is shared by a society with a shared ancestry. It is a reservoir of the experiences, beliefs and thoughts of our ancestors over many millenia.
Jung discovered its existence from the analysis of his patients` dreams. Frequently his patients were able to recall information from their dreams which they had no conscious recollection of or access to and he found that much of the symbolism contained within his patients` dreams had a consistent and shared quality, specific to that race or folk.
One can read the beginnings of the formulation of his theory and examples of his research within his early and seminal work, Psycology of the Unconscious, published in 1916. This work marked a departure from the work and theories of the jewish founder of Psychological Analysis Sigmund Freud.
Within this groundbreaking work Jung explores not only dreams but mythology with an emphasis on Aryan mythology. Whether consciously or not Jung was beginning to create a new branch of psychology, a distinctly Aryan one which had almost messianic and Aryan undertones.
Jung goes beyond Freud`s narrow sexual interpretation of the Libido or life impulse and transforms it into an Aryan hero, a sun hero who is seeking to escape his narrow confines as it experiences a series of adventures.
The Collective Unconscious is further discussed and defined in Jung`s The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious.
Two groundbreaking and controversial books by Richard Noll, The Aryan Christ: The Secret Life of Carl Jung and The Jung Cult: Origins of a Charismatic Movement expose for the first time Jung`s folkish and Aryan belief system.
If it is true that we can access the shared racial memory of our ancestors via dreams and trance states then nothing is truly ever lost despite the destruction and havoc that was caused to our ancient Aryan spiritual lore and paths by the forces of christendom over the centuries. Everything is waiting to be rediscovered.
I believe that it was this very same Collective Unconscious that Aryan mystics such as the Austrian Guido von List[1848-1919] was able to access during his period of blindness which lasted 11 months after a cataract operation carried out in 1902. During this time he received visions as his "inner eye" was opened and he received the Armanen runic futhorc.
In the same way the God Odin/Woden/Wotan received the runes as related in the Norse Havamal.
