Like written language, symbols carry meaning that allows us to communicate with each other. But unlike language, many ancient symbols also contain something more. A deep meaning that lies in the base of our subconscious. Carl Jung called those symbols Archetypes as archaic images or universal thought forms that influence an individual’s feelings and action. He proposed that these images, patterns or prototypes for ideas are derived from the universal or collective unconscious. According to Jung, the collective unconscious is an inherited psyche or reservoir of experience and is common to all members of a specific species. Archetypes can be described as blueprints of our soul. These are archetypes or patterns of behavior that we are born with. The great Greek philosopher Plato is credited with originating the concept of archetypes.
