In all disorder lies a secret order…

“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”
Carl Jung

What part of your life feels like it’s in disarray? When I listen to clients talk about their issues, it is easy for me to clearly see the unifying themes that run through their confusion and disillusionment. As they struggle through their uncertainty, I strive to help clear a path through the murky waters that surround them. At the end of a session, I sometimes see them find this clarity, even if it only lasts for a moment. These moments turn into gradual insights, slight shifts in behavior until they begin to see a real change in their behavior.

However, in my own life, I am reminded how easy it is to struggle through this murkiness. Having a private practice, striving to be a writer and having three kids with many different needs and schedules clouds and often overwhelms my own ability to see through what is truly important for my own internal growth and external needs. All sense of ‘me’ dissipates as I find myself taking care of everybody else and not myself. Of course in the current of my life, I float in and out of this awareness, that things are never completely in balance, constantly swinging the pendulum from once side back to the the other to find an equilibrium, always feeling like I am on a never ending merry-go-round that never fully slows down or comes to a stop.

Yet, if I stop to notice the patterns beneath the chaos swirling around me, I can begin to find a sense of peace and order. The constant of new and old faces traveling around me in perpetual motion, struggling with their own never-ending thematic issues – quiets as I come to a stop – close the door, say no, set boundaries. I have to continue to remind myself that motion often blocks discovery instead of nurturing it – for it is only when one slows down, that they can see the secret order beneath the chaos.

Dreams provide us with this pertinent information – to discover the secret order. However, we are in such a hurry to wake up, get out of bed and begin our motion through the day, that we forget their vital imagery and deep messages. Part of my vision is slowing down, finding the patterns beneath the chaos, the secret order beneath the disorder – so I can begin to see and understand my life’s true mission and purpose.

    I just wanted to thank you for coimnlipg this list. I have just started researching meditation, and I think this will be a big help for me. I am hoping I will be able to better center myself, and I hope that I can use this for my anxiety.

  5. I would like to express appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of crisis. After surfing throughout the internet and getting ideas which are not powerful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive without the strategies to the problems you’ve sorted out as a result of your entire posting is a serious case, as well as the kind that might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not encountered your web site. Your own personal ability and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a step like this. I am able to at this time relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for your impressive and results-oriented help. I won’t think twice to endorse your blog post to any person who should receive guidance on this issue.
