An exerpt from
MAN AND HIS SYMBOLS
CARL G. JUNG
‘The symbol-producing function of our dreams is thus an attempt to bring the original mind of man into “advanced” or differentiated consciousness, where it has never been before and where, therefore, it has never been subjected to critical self-reflection. For, in ages long past, that original mind was the whole of man’s personality. As he developed consciousness, so his conscious mind lost contact with some of that primitive psychic energy…Yet it seems that what we call the unconscious has preserved primitive characteristics that formed part of the original mind. It is to these characteristics that the symbols of dreams constantly refer, as if the unconscious sought to bring back all the old things from which the mind freed itself as it evolved- illusions, fantasies, archaic thought forms, fundamental instincts, and so on.
This is what explains the resistance, even fear, that people often experience in approaching unconscious matters. These relict contents are not merely neutral or indifferent. On the contrary, they are so highly charged that they are often more than merely uncomfortable. They can cause real fear. The more they are repressed, the more they spread through the whole personality in the form of a neurosis.’

Fotomahaloness -exploring ancient Egypt, a collaboration, or as my title suggests, collabomagic. Agent R and I are working together, the creative flow is swift, the new year off to a good start as winter season unfolds, short days, cool nights, and ancient mystery in my mind’s eye. I have always appreciated the symbols, the ancient languages that have stood the test of time, encoded into our collective psyche even if evolutionary forces have worn away at its relativity. The ancients certainly did leave us clues about who they were, even though they are also heavily shrouded in mystery. It seems to me that the magic that prevailed than is here with us now, and that whatever the Egyptians were tapped into, that we too have the capability to do so as well. It is food for thought, and with that it is again time to paint, until the next one, Mahaloness.
Like what you see, you can order one of my paintings as a high quality print, or the original, shipped right to your door, here is a link to that painting featured on my Saatchi online gallery, it is called ‘Breath of Life’

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
