Symbols, Intuition and Healing

It is the role of symbols to give a meaning to the life of man.
Carl Jung

The wise metaphysician resolves into ideas
each mental picture, each form and shape seen in visions, dreams, and the like.
Charles Fillmore

We must learn to see symbols all around us,
and then penetrate behind the symbol to the idea which it should express.
Alice Bailey

An illness is a self-representation of a human being
at a stage at which something is demanded of him for the sake of experience.
Chandra Sharma

Remember that all diseases . . .
not only are psychosomatic in their form
but also are symbolic of that process clinging
to that which is obsolete for the nature and for the self.
Paul Solomon

Within the symbolic experience of disease lies
a path of change and self-healing and a healthy body-mind.
Bernie Siegel

Symptoms are potentially meaningful and purposeful conditions.
They could be the beginning of a fantastic phase of life,
or they could bring one amazingly close to the center of existence.
Arnold Mindell

Your capacity to read a "meaning" into a symbol,
will be dependent also upon the richness of the meaning
you ascribe to the events of your daily life, and your ability to really meditate. . . .
Alice Bailey

The penetration into the meaning of a symbol can provide a means
whereby the intuitional faculty can be brought into functioning activity.
Alice Bailey
