Jung and the Ancestors


Jane Philips

That which we heal within ourselves in the present, reaches back to touch the souls of our ancestors and enables future generations to begin from a new and healthier standpoint. 

— Jane Philips

I feel very strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors.

—Memories, Dreams and Reflections, CG Jung, p. 233

Without a framework that allows for the possibility of the reality and existence of our ancestors as more than pieces of DNA and bones in the ground, their presence fixed within our personal, conscious memory, we are limited in our ability to listen and respond, to continue what previous generations left unfinished, to heal the sick energy which haunts us, to listen for the ancestors guidance and benefit from their wisdom, to explore their unanswered questions, I would suggest, depends on reconnecting with the origins of our shared human consciousness.

— Sandra Easter, Jung and the Ancestors, p. 84-84
