Individuation can occur naturally or through psychoanalysis, but either way it is made possible by opening up to signs from our unconscious. First, we need to recognize that the ego and personas that make up our conscious selves are only part of our entire Self. In addition to the personality and roles that we are aware of, there are also complexes buried in our unconscious.
One complex is the shadow, our “bad” side, which we tend to project onto others of the same sex. We need to fecundate our contrasexual nature. We cannot become aware of our unconscious simply by making a conscious effort to do so. Rather, we need to tap into our creativity and become open to the archtypes that are all around us in the form of symbols, myths, religion, literature and pretty much anything that seems mysterious and spiritual non-rational.
Our unconscious is also revealed in our dreams. Some specific archtypes to become aware of are: He probably would have enjoyed the current popularity of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Everything in our personal unconscious can theoretically be made conscious, but we only have access to some of indoviduation is in the collective unconscious which may be local, national or for all of humanity.

He thought meditation was withdrawing into fear-ridden passivity. Jung did not believe that Westerners should seek enlightenment through Eastern means, such as Zen Buddhism or yoga. Rather, we should embrace our own cultural archtypes, such as the story of Jonah and the Whale.
He did believe in the concept of grace. When our conscience makes us feel guilty, we need to listen for the vox dei. On the other hand, the conventional mores that comprise society’s moral code may well conflict with our personal conscience, and we need to figure out how to follow the “right” conscience and reject the “fake” one.
The inner man calls you to your vocation, and you must accept your fate, lest you be plagued by constant, indefinable anxiety according to the woman who wrote this book. Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.
Jung thought good and evil were part of the same whole. Evil ever dwells within us; and we should bear this knowledge instead of erecting a facade against evil. Inner peace is gained by becoming whole, and we should not seek perfection. We need to develop a weltanschauung: To me, the concept seems very similar to Taoism, which is about finding the “Way.
If I have an open mind, I can constellate archtypal signs as I embrace both my good side and my evil side. On the other hand, confronting and embracing all of our complexes is supposed to involve suffering as well as happiness and is not the same as just doing nothing and being unaware of our unconscious. Helped me sort out some mental dilemmas without resorting to corrupt institutions. I especially like the diagnosis of modern man’s neurosis being a result of spiritually vacuous materialism spawning from fear of death, lack of meaning, and outdated religious doctrine.
The metaphors are all around, all pointing in the same direction, and all unique.

Way Of Individuation
