Despite the recognition that Carl Jung has received throughout the last century or so, the importance of his work still cannot be stressed enough. The real beauty of Jung’s work was his ability to conceptualize a variety of esoteric, even shamanistic concepts through scientific, empirical observation. While some might still beg to differ, Jung’s concepts such as the Collective Human Unconscious, human cognitive archetypes, and perhaps his most complex and mysterious observation, Synchronicity, are all quite scientifically validated today. Considered to be an a-causal connection of two or more psycho-social phenomena, modern interpretations of this could be seen as the person who checks their phone for a call, only to receive the call immediately upon checking, a Déjà vu including but not limited to information from dreams occurring in waking life, or a seemingly random string of events leading the subject to a specific goal that could not have been achieved had their original plans gone accordingly — and of course any number of other events.

Have you ever experienced an 11:11 synchronicity? Psychologist Carl Jung coined the term synchronicity, which many of us use on a daily or weekly basis.

The great doctor of the soul and modern day alchemist C. G. Jung was so far ahead of his time that, more than half a century after his death, he is still barely appreciated. Jung was a genius who had incredibly deep insight into the nature of the psyche, particularly how it informs and gives shape to what plays out in our world. I find myself wondering, what would Jung say about the madness currently playing out in our world if he were alive today? I can only imagine.
Jung was of the opinion that “Active Imagination,” a process in which we actively dialogue and have it out with the figures of our unconscious, was the most powerful practice he had ever come across for working with—and integrating—the unconscious. I find myself wondering, what if I were to do active imagination with Jung himself? Continue reading What Would Carl G. Jung Say about Donald Trump?

Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875, Kesswil, – June 6, 1961, Küsnacht) was a Swiss psychiatrist, influential thinker, and founder of analytical psychology. Jung’s unique and broadly influential approach to psychology has emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, world religion and philosophy.
Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician for most of his life, much of his life’s work was spent exploring other realms including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the arts. His most notable contributions include his concept of the psychological archetype, the collective unconscious, and his theory of synchronicity. Continue reading Psychologist Carl Jung on Spirituality

Jung said that a person in whom intuition was dominant, an “intuitive type”, did not use their concrete sensory experience but an abstract intuitive one.
An extroverted intuitive type, “the natural champion of all minorities with a future”, orients themselves to new and promising but unproven possibilities, often leaving to chase after the new possibility before old ventures have borne fruit, oblivious to his or her own welfare in the constant pursuit of change. Continue reading Carl Jung on Intuition
“Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.”
~Carl Gustav Jung
