How Mob Mentality Gets Worse Online

This is a great video that describes the psychology of the herd/mob.  Nietzsche went to great lengths about the matter, as well as many great psychologists, including Carl Jung, who detailed the need to individuate (psychologically differentiate) oneself from out of the herd/mob, in order to become a unique and whole individual. What Jung called “Selfhood”, is what we as gray mystics would term reaching the “Divine Union” and the “Alchemical […]

Are You the One?

Since I made my video on the Mandela Effect whistleblower, I’ve received an awful lot of people claiming to be the One mentioned in the video. Because of this trend, I decided to make a video exploring what and who the One actually is, and give myself a video to send as a reply to anybody else who claims to be the One. At the very least, I would safely […]

Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey Featuring Carl Jung & the Mythology of Star Wars

George Lucas and Star Wars was inspired by Joseph Campbell’s work “the Hero’s Journey”, while Joseph Campbell was inspired by Carl Jung’s psychological models. Carl Jung developed what we know as shadow work, which integrates the darkness and light into one within an individual. George Lucas was therefore in the mystical lineage of the man who pioneered the Gray Mystic’s (Jedi’s) path to emotional wholeness, balance, and mastery. Campbell’s ideas […]

Carl Jung on Anima Projection

Excerpt from Man & His Symbols (Audiobook) by Carl G. Jung on the negative aspect of the anima in the male psyche. The anima and animus, in Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology, are the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind, as opposed to both the theriomorphic and inferior-function of the shadow archetypes, as well as the abstract symbol sets that formulate the archetype of the Self. The […]

Jungian Psychology – The Shadow – Carl Jung

This is a video about the shadow layer of the personality in Jungian Analytical Psychology. The shadow is the conglomeration of all of our disowned traits, that function autonomously within our personality and manifest as various issues and neuroses. In order to heal ourselves, we must learn to reintegrate the traits that we have relegated to the shadow so that we can become whole again. Wholeness is more important than […]

Reflection & Projection

There are two things that can occur in our interactions with others—reflection and projection. Reflection is when experiences reflect back to us from others that show us aspects of ourselves, and projection is where we externalize aspects of ourselves onto others that aren’t actually them. Projection can be anything that we avoid seeing in ourselves and instead only see in others, good or bad, whereas reflection is always occurring, even […]

Master Yoda vs Dark Yoda

It is the task of the Gray mystic to seek out and confront the dark shadows within themselves, face to face, rather than suppressing them, avoiding them, or denying their existence. Our shadows hold much wisdom in their messages to us, and grant us power, if we will but listen to their voice and shine the light of conscious awareness upon them. A suppressed shadow will always come back to […]

What is a Grey Jedi?

One thing that many people miss when trying to understand the variations of Jedi is that they are looking at it as a completely fabricated story, and not realizing that they are all a metaphor for ancient and modern mysticism. Looking at their roots within Alchemical Hermeticism, along with Hermes/Thoth and the land of Khem, is therefore important. For example, the Hermeticist Sir Isaac Newton coined the term “the Force” […]
