Do you know your Shadow?
Do you keep your Shadow hidden from others?
One of the most effective benefits of psychoanalysis is the process of uncovering the dark, unhealthy energy in your unconscious. Carl Jung called these parts of the self that you placed in your unconscious The Shadow.
Here is what Carl Jung wrote about The Shadow, “Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected.”
“Psychology and Religion” (1938). In CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East. P.131
What this means is that if you are not aware of your so called bad habits, bad thoughts, bad behaviors, bad feelings, bad emotions you are sure to be really, really bad and continue to be bad. You are hiding the fact that you are bad and the hiding of your “lack of goodness” makes you weak, mean, irrational and sick.
On the outside you are projecting goodness, but this goodness is not real. As long as you keep your badness in the dark, you do not have a chance to transform your dark energy into light. Instead, you are darker and denser than those of us who bring up this material to the light of the conscious mind.
Only those of us who bring up and admit we are not so good or so perfect have a chance to improve ourselves. Only when you admit you have thoughts that are judgmental, can you stop being judgmental toward yourself and toward others.
Personal growth, which leads to more self-confidence, is successful when you admit, know and own your Shadow. It is to your benefit to know your shadow by admitting the truth that dwells deep inside of you.
Your dark, dense energy is dying to be exposed and set free so you can be relaxed, authentic and happy.
