In this episode, I continue reading from my book, Your Soul is Talking. Are You Listening? 5 Steps to Uncovering Your Hidden Purpose. In this chapter, I’ll be reading Chapter 22: What Movie Are You Living?
Have you ever been obsessed with a movie or an online series? Are you like me and find yourself going back to the theatre to see certain films eight times? The first time that happened I felt exhilarated by the feeling of being pulled by some mysterious force to rewatch Aquaman of all movies again and again and again.
Did you know that the field of psychology emerged at the same time as the invention of the moving picture? Could it be that we desperately crave exploring ourselves through what’s projected on the screen, the stage, through music, or on our laptop? Could it be that when we most think we’re choosing to be entertained, our ego loosens enough for certain images to reach into our psyche and secretly whisper something to our Soul that the ego cannot hear?
Most recently, I made myself go see Bullet Train because Brad Pitt was in it (click here to read my blog post). For most of the movie I felt bored by the nonstop realistic violence that felt animated. Three quarters of the way through the movie, I got it. Oh my gosh, Brad Pitt represents the self-reflecting human I talk about all the time.
Enjoy listening to me teach you a little about Jungian Film Theory and share how I came to understand my personal experiences with film.
So, let’s get started . . .
