: Had an Underworld Dream last night. It featured a woman who showed us a mysterious room in a
: basement, down some creaky stairs. The woman disappeared and reappeared; the room was only visible
: when she was. I was with a small boy who kept yelling for the woman. I was yelling for an older man to
: come down the stairs to see the room. We had to wait for him. He eventually appeared, wearing a
: bathrobe. There was a vent in the ductwork spewing smoke. I got the sense of danger, that the woman
: would try to trick us into the room and make the entrance disappear, sealing us in.
: I woke up with the strong image of smoke pouring from the subterranean duct, realizing from my
: acquaintance with DreamWave that I had been visiting the Underworld, and that it was important that
: I remember this dream.
If Erich Neumann is right, and I believe he is, then the fear you have of being sealed in the underworld
by the unconscious or devouring feminine is accurate. It seems that the job of such an archetype is to keep us
unconscious, to keep us stable.
When the masculine arrives wearing a bathrobe, you know you've got trouble. I mean it is hardly a warrior's outfit.
Passive masculine energy is no match for the hag.
Task: summon a warrior, the small boy is yelling for comfort. Just what we don't need right now.
