In Jungian psychology, the shadow or “shadow aspect” may refer to (1) an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself. Because one tends to reject or remain ignorant of the least desirable aspects of one’s personality, the shadow is largely negative, or (2) the entirety of the unconscious, i.e., everything of which a person is not fully conscious. There are, however, positive aspects which may also remain hidden in one’s shadow (especially in people with low self-esteem).[1] Contrary to a Freudian definition of shadow, therefore, the Jungian shadow can include everything outside the light of consciousness, and may be positive or negative. “Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.”[2] It may be (in part) one’s link to more primitive animal instincts,[3] which are superseded during early childhood by the conscious mind.

Took me some real soul searching to be able to contextualize the part of me I never wanted anyone to see. I really faced that part of me and now I am sharing it with you. I never put much stock in Freud, always felt he was a Fraud but I am biased…I mean even now I can not give you any concrete evidence about his findings so I am not going to talk about it…just remember the man was a bird watcher, who got bored with birds, started watching people and then started making people watch people. Any who, after taking the time to answer the question of, Who am I? I finally came to the question of am I really what my environment or predecessors have determined me to be.

As I yell from all the roof tops I always remember that, “as a man thinkith so he is”. Once this is realized, so is one’s brilliance and so you learn to dig real deep to allow your light to shine beyond the shadows.

I took this from my other website(AVPRODUCTIONSBLOG.WORDPRESS.COM) I quoted myself (THAT MEANS I AM FLY) need to say anything new when it was said right the first time!
