Carl G. Jung was born in Switzerland in the year 1875. He became a very influential person in the world of psychology and psychotherapy. While studying he became a student and good friend of Sigmund Freud, but started to see Freud's limitations getting more and more firm. Carl Jung was not convinced, like Freud, that our whole psyche can be condensed down to our consciousness and subconsciousness. Freud refused to add more layers of possibility to a complicated, and mysterious psyche. This was when Jung broke away from the school of Freud and began the deep dive into our minds eye.
"...what he discovered has forever changed the view of the psyche."
Jung started analyzing the patterns and dreams of his patients, and what he discovered has forever changed the view of the psyche as we see it today. His work took him to many places other physicians were not willing to venture. For example, Alchemy, not necessarily involving the combination of different elements to create "Gold." He was interested in how our mind has different elements and how those elements, being combined in different ways, react or interpret all the information introduced from our 5 senses. It's that information that we filter and decide what to do with it. Using the familiar word " Conditioning" as the filter, we can each find ourselves in completely different ideas of the exact same situation.
"...we can then harness the power and control of our individual mind..."
With the process of analyzing, probably thousands of patients, he discovered patterns within a common, and repeated pattern of conditioning, across different groups of people, the ability to map out his idea of the Psyche. The psyche, being defined as the layers of psychic mind which is invisible to our human eyes, is the all encompassing filter which we build our physical reality from. Taking that idea to it's fullest potential Jung believes we can then harness the power and control of our individual mind to then create whatever reality we want for ourselves. This idea is then honed to the point of what Jung called the process of "Individuation."
"The client is always in control of the steering..."
Therefore, this is the process I will work to go through with each client. The client is always in control of the steering, and I as the coach will be there to help navigate through the obstacles our egoic mind wants to put in our way. The Ego is absolutely vital through the process, but It's a horrible driver. The process of Individuation can be a returning to our hearts. A re-integration of our highest purpose we are meant to do while we live this Life.
