“I sit and wait… does an Angel contemplate my Fate?” sings Robbie Williams in his song, “Angels.”

In our modern culture of billions of email messages, text messages and instant messages transmitting back and forth from Smart Phones, tablets, and personal computers, it’s easy to forget the original instant messengers: the Angels. Yet, in the midst of all of this technology saturating our culture, the Angels are alive and well, if we can recognize their invisible nature hidden in culture. In fact, the Angel archetype seems to be one of the most significant archetypes emerging (or re-emerging) into the modern era.

In this MP3 talk, based on a presentation given at the Minnesota Jung Association, Shawn Nygaard explores the nature of the Angel archetype, its roots in the Greek daimon, the Roman genius, and the North African genie, and how it shows up in the imagination of our 21st-century popular culture in such movies as “Ratatouille” and “A Few Good Men,” as well as a multitude of books and songs. What is their message, and how is this archetype connected to happiness?
