In a world filled with rationality, you sometimes need a little magic, a little “I wonder why”. Synchronicity, the insights of Carl Jung, the mythology used by Freud, the archetypical layers in the Tarot, the wisdom of the I Tjing, Shamanism, the oldest religion of humanity, all that information gets published in the Spirifunda section of Mindfunda.
Who is Mindfunda?
My name is Susanne van Doorn, I am a Dutch psychologist, blogger and author. I have been working with psychology, dreams and mythology ever since I finished my study in psychology at Tilburg University. I made this independent blog to share insights, and recent scientific articles about the brain, dreams, and mythology for use in your personal life.
A Mindfunda a day keeps the doctor away
for a healthy mind in a healthy body.
This book presents the Infinity Model of Healing to be used in every transition period in life.This model is generated from a survey on dreams about the lost loved ones. This internet based survey gathered 125 dreams that are divided into categories.Together they constitute the spiritual path of the healing model.For every category several remarkable dreams are shared and analyzed. This book will help you get in touch with your own inner wisdom and invites you to share your dreams about your lost loved ones to receive their healing message.
I have translated the book written by Russian psychiatrists Vasily Kasatkin about the relationship between dreams and Health:
Russian psychiatrist Vasily Kasatkin devoted more than half a century to collecting and studying dreams and is the author of the book “”Theory of Dreams” (Medical 1967). The theory Kasatkin proposes is not filled with mystical symbols, but numerous scientifically-based facts and interesting observations. His work is based on an extensive 30-year collection of dreams, which allowed Kasatkin to make significant conclusions. He demonstrates that the sleeping brain warns us of impending disease, of which the first symptoms may occur weeks, months or even years before the overt physical symptoms.
