Title: The Self as a symbol of wholeness and balance
Jung’s conception of the Self was fundamental to his psychological theory. For Jung the Self was transcendent in that it lies outside the psychic realm. It is not oneself, not subjective. It is the ground from which the subjective is in touch with archetypal energies represented through symbols. These spontaneous emergent symbols are represented by images or mandalas with their structures of squares and circles which as a practice can centre the individual like the Tao. These symbols most typically emerge in dreams and arrive to bring order and balance when the individual psyche is challenged and is in disorder. The Self brings the individual back to the centre and creates an orientation which was Jung’s own experience after his break up with Freud and is represented by the Red Book. In Jung’s theory the shadow stands at the immediate level followed by the anima/animas struggles of the psyche where the shadow is being made sense of and overarching these stands the Self to which the psyche is orientated. The Self therefore always moves the individual psyche forward to a new synthesis in order to discover meaning.
