“Psychologist Carl Jung had a deep interest in the shadow – its form and content – and in the process of assimilating it. He saw quite clearly that failure to recognise, acknowledge and deal with our shadow elements is often the root of problems between individuals and within groups and organisations. Becoming familiar with the shadow aspects of ourselves, the parts of us of that we deem unacceptable in one way or another, is an essential part of the therapeutic relationship, of individuation and becoming more balanced and more whole.” – Source Link
“With effort the shadow can be somewhat assimilated into the conscious personality, but portions of it are highly resistant to moral control. Portions of the shadow have a transpersonal power to them, a power beyond what most people can imagine. Most people, Jung thought, do not try to be aware of their shadow. Yet the shadow had great creative power. As a result of not being in touch with our shadow aspects of our psyche, we tend to project those thoughts, feelings, or emotions onto other people. By projecting them onto other people and not identifying with them and not saying “this is me that acts this way and feels these things”, the shadow can take on a life of its own and make us no longer approaching situations realistically. We also lose the creativity contained in the images and energies of the shadow… Jung’s therapy tried to help people integrate their shadow aspects in ways that were creative and not destructive.” – Source Link
