The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • in Christian countries usually the most frequent figure of a savior is Jesus Christ, but other personifications of the Wise Old Man archetype can also fill the figure of a savior.
  • a savior appears in a dream: symbolizes a warm relationship to spiritual questions which is leading the dreamer to an important message; such an image is a true blessing on the spiritual journey.
  • being a savior: once a person sets out on the path of knowing his own psyche, he will find within increasingly more masks or will identify with masks of various types of personalities (apotheosis23); he then inevitably appears in dreams as, for instance, a savior; as soon as a person is trapped in this kind of labyrinth of masks of different personalities, he should immediately read the Treasure archetype.
