Anima, Animus
The Anima and Animus are, in Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology, the unconscious or true inner self of an individual, as opposed to the persona or outer aspect of the personality. In the unconscious of the male, it finds expression as a feminine inner personality: anima; equivalently, in the unconscious of the female, it is expressed as a masculine inner personality: animus.


Theoretically, we are whole beings (that is, our souls are neither female nor male) so when we are one gender, the opposite gender characteristics of the persona's soul become part of the unconscious.-CF's note.

Archetypes A symbolic representation of primal forces that describe recurring figures in society. It is not culturally dependent, yet present in all observed cultures. For example: "Good mother"; everyone has an idea of what a good mother should be, but different cultures and individuals may have different standards for what they believe it is.-CF

What are Dreams:

False Awakening: Dreaming you're awake, possible short OBE, see here:



Hypnagogic state
The state between being awake and falling asleep in which visual and auditory hallucinations may be experienced. Hypnagogic hallucinations happen because the body has fallen asleep, and the brain has started to create dreamscapes. Deep meditators will see the vision screens, that can be like a TV picture, or can be a lone figure such as a face or another figure. Normally this happens when people are asleep, but if the conscious mind is still awake it will experience them as visions. They can also be called clairvoyance or remote viewing, if the images are being received from a distant location.

Hypnopompic state
This state is the transition from semiconsciousness to waking. For some people, this is a time of visual and auditory hallucinations. In other words, the same as hypnagogia, but as you wake up, not as you fall asleep.
