  • a very important dream since it concerns the dreamer's inner essence, whether the initiation is seen or experienced.
  • closely linked to the Hero and UFO – Initiation Ceremonies archetypes and, in perceiving inner changes, also the Self archetype.
  • sometimes unexpected rituals and the mystical secrets of ancient cultures are revealed in an initiation dream.
  • through the channeling of accumulated sexuality: causes the unification of male and female antitheses (anima – animus) in a single ecstasy of a controlled trance; such unification is, however, very risky since a person then seeks supramundane states in sex, and instinctual weights pull him down from spiritual and from emotional experiences (see Anima – Animus archetype).
