In search for home, for Mama, for Truth, for something, she doesn’t know what, Gabrielle Hayes tiptoes through the mines in her war-torn psyche to explore the remnants of psychological damage caused by decades of abuse and Self-annihilation. She examines each piece of evidence under the light of prominent Jungian analysts—not to find fault but to find peace. Detonating explosives, long thought to be duds, forces her to rebuild the foundation of her psyche, a stone-by-stone metamorphism. The proverbial brick (in her case, a frying pan) hadn’t hit Gabrielle in the head until she was 44 years old. But when it did, the injury was massive. Her husband, who she romanticized as her soulmate, just slammed the door on their life together, forever. She should have seen the shadow of the frying pan on the wall; she had seen it in dream after dream. But she didn’t know what it symbolized until it was too late. The thing she had feared most had happened. Shattered, she lost the will to live—because she knew it was her own damn fault. Some inexplicable anger had been eating her alive for much of her life and now it was sucking dry everything and anything that crossed her path. Saved by the bell, Gabrielle answers the phone. Her parents, who live 2,000 miles away, sense something wrong. They insist she come home to recover, to regroup. They do not want to experience what it would be like on Earth without her. Little do they know, they are inviting home the very monster they helped to create. Resurrected through the lenses of hundreds of dreams, fairy tales, myths, news clips, fiction, scripture, songs, and poems, as well as quotes from numerous scholarly journals, spiritual works, and psychology textbooks, Gabrielle’s memoir doesn’t just tell you a story, it invites you to live it.

About the Author:

I am what I feel, think, remember, and perceive, that is, my ego—good or bad, right or wrong, true or false, real or imagined. I am the mask I wear, which strives to influence your opinion of me while hiding my true inner Self. I am the faults I find in others, that is, my repressed desires and fears, what Jung coined the “shadow,” what I call my witch, who surfaces when I think I am under attack. I am at war because what I think and say often contradict what I do. I am masculine energy (yang): fast, hard, dry, and aggressive. I am feminine energy (yin): slow, soft, wet, and passive. I am of God, of the Divine Source, as the flame is of the fire, as the wave is of the ocean. And I am a vessel through which Divine Source expands to know itself through my journey, that is, my mistakes, my revelations, my joys, my heartaches, and my loves and my hates. I hope that one day, as did Jung at age 10, I will step out of the mist, and know I am what I am.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 416 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.THE MEMOIR Scraping the chalky topsoil off trenches and craters in my war-torn psyche, the Syzygy: Crossing the Bridge to Self memoir explores the layers of environmental destruction and psychological damage after decades of abuse and Self-annihilation to exhume what remains, if anything. In search for home, for Mama, for Truth, for something, I didnt know what, I examine each piece of evidence under the light of prominent Jungian analystsnot to find fault but to find peace. Detonating explosives, long thought to be duds, forced me to rebuild the foundation of my psyche, a stone-by-stone metamorphism. Resurrected through the lenses of hundreds of dreams, fairy tales, myths, news clips, fiction, scripture, songs, and poems, as well as quotes from numerous scholarly journals, spiritual works, and psychology textbooks, this memoir doesnt just tell you a story, it invites you to live it. THE WEBSITE While the memoir excavates the debris of a past life (a kind of therapeutic process of sorting and sifting and cleansing), the website rebuilds, replants, and rewires. Like a reality television show, www. syzygy-crossingthebridgetoself. com chronicles a life now in progress. Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, sometimes clawing its way out of an abyss of abuse and addiction, sometimes bold enough to descend into the belly of the beast, its a life that seeks Truth yet hides from it. Some daysas my life develops in a dark room of its own makingI cringe at the sight of me. Other days, I marvel. Its both work and play. It is digging and burying, finding and losing, hurting and healing, loving and hating. It is dying and being reborn. Documenting this process of Self-discovery, which Jung coined individuation, this website explores avenues for expansion, such as memoir writing, active imagination, alchemy, archetypes, astrology, dream analysis, psychoanalysis, I Ching, mandalas, psychological types, and shadow work. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781511919630
