The “Shadow”, Carl Jung’s concept (part 3)


Do you really truly believe in evil okay so for example, if you think about Dante Dante’s famous uh mythology the which was called the divine comedy uh as he’s going into the inferno right there are many different levels of hell we could say okay, and all this all of us are making psycho-spiritual reference to ourselves by the way, okay, okay so uh lust greed, anger, things of that sort and then at the very end, where there’s like a devil so yes, there are just certain things that is just down downright out evil have no value really per se unless you learn from it, I guess but but there are other evils that are not quite as evil along the way which represent the shadow side again greed anger lust excessiveness impulsivity those things which affect our soul to make negative outcomes but again those are all teaching tools; those are all ways of us learning through our consequences in life Do you know why was so greedy and not giving why was I so angry when i couldn’t I could have been peaceful they were peaceful to me so you see that this is a process all this is a process for us to overcome our shadow side so that it’s it’s less potent over our soul, yeah so in a dream, if you, if you have a dark a person coming your way meaning a shadowy figure like an uh someone you feel is going to hurt you then you want to say hey who are you? What do you want why are you doing this to me in my life let’s make a deal, or hey, what do you need and want so that relates to some examples of where I’ve dealt with patients who have done that kind of shadow work and then all of a sudden like one woman who said oh well, what do you need to want all of a sudden her shadow side brightened up and smiled and became like a beautiful angel to her and said and all of a sudden wanted to help her you see that there was a transition you could tell from a dark angel to a light angel to influence her life in such a way in a very healthy way, a beautiful way you see
