The image of the labyrinth gives us a path to follow when complexes are activated, when the dream offers guidance and when the imagination heals. It is a left handed path that leads through helplessness towards knowledge. It is also a path where love threads it’s way beside us, Ariadne’s clue as we shall see is fundamental to the process.

As Jung has written:
Without such a vision (the Liverpool dream ) I might perhaps have lost my orientation and been compelled to abandon my understanding. But here the meaning had been made clear. When I parted from Freud, I knew I was plunging into the
unknown. Beyond Freud, after all, I knew nothing; but I had taken the step into darkness. When that happens, and then such a dream comes, one feels it is an act of grace ( Jung CW9, p. 199).
