Carl Jung – Transference & Archetypes

“She suddenly became aware of an entirely heathenish image that comes fresh from the archetype. She had no idea of a Christian god or of an Old Testament Yahweh. It was a heathenish god, you see; a god of nature, of vegetation; he was the wheat himself; he is the spirit of the wheat; the spirit of the wind. And she was in the arms of that numen. That is the living experience of an archetype.” –Dr. Carl Gustav Jung
