Shadows of a Stranger

In Jungian psychology, the shadow or “shadow aspect” may refer to the entirety of the unconscious, i.e., everything of which a person is not fully conscious, an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not recognize in itself.

There are, however, positive aspects which may also remain hidden in ones shadow. “Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.
