Partnering with our unconscious mind is largely a matter of making ourselves available to it in a routine and regular way, simply by being aware of the presence of "the other" within. Carl Jung referred to the unconscious as "The ten million year old person within." That "person" is not primarily verbal but communicates via images, as in dreams at night, and through metaphors and symbols. That "person" is also not primarily logical, rational, analytical, but is sentient, intuitive, instinctive, musical, rhythmic, artistic, poetic, feeling based and oriented. And is attracted to natural settings and objects--water, rocks, feathers, butterflies, etc. You might take up the practice of taking your two million year old person on walks through nature, feeling/sensing her/his presence and channeling his/her emotional response to the sights and sounds of your environment, tuning in, turning on, and being with your inner other and learning how to commune with, comprehend, and understand this side of ourselves, and lay the groundwork for a viable partnership for finding our way to--and along--the way that is ours to walk together.

A person certainly worth getting to know well.
