Hi Liesel,

Actually, I agree with your view of the unconscious.  I was just trying to
state that it is bad to suppress your unconscious, that "you can
communicate with it, and tell it what you want it to do."  That is, make
friends with your unconscious, accept it, and love it.  If there are any
negatives in the unconscious, then that would be the way to heal it also.
I think a lot of the problems came about because instead of going through
the process of healing, people often go through the process of hating and
condemning, of trying to pretend that anything they don't like do not
exist.  That was the point of my paragraph.
