My last dream of 2011 and my first dream of 2012 involved the figure of the guardian of the portal.
I'm not sure I've read much on Jung or Jungians talking about this archetypal image nor I'm not that versed in mythology (yet) so I don't know how to understand this figure.
At first I thought about the psychopomp, but the guardian just guards the portal, it has nothing to do with mediation or movement between cs and ics.
So how should I begin to understand it? Where to look?
