In Chapter 10, I talk about another way your unconscious speaks to you – through bodily symptoms and injuries.
During one of my somatic depth psychology courses – soma means body – I was intrigued by an active imagination exercise offered in one of the textbooks. In the exercise, my imagination took me in an elevator down to my stomach, my womb. When the elevator door opened, I felt the warmth and humidity and saw the dark moist caverns like those in a volcano. As I walked and felt my way through the darkness, at my feet were slow moving rivers of lava with swirling colors of dark red, orange, yellow and brown.
My emotions included caution and curiosity, and when I rode the elevator back up to consciousness, my first thought was, “Wow, there’s a lot going on in there.”
