Energy Enhancement Meditation, Carl Jung and transmuting the Shadow, Unconscious, Ego, Id – The Hidden Power of Our Dark Side – and Psychology
“That which we do not bring to consciousness appears in our lives as fate.” (Carl Jung)
The Unconscious Shadow which exists in all of us bites us with Fate, Shame, Triggering, Karma, Bad Luck and Trouble
Carl Jung is famous for formulating the concept of the shadow, the portion of our personality which, through the course of our life, is relegated to the darkness of the unconscious.
The Nature of the Shadow
“The shadow goes by many familiar names: the disowned self, the lower self, the dark twin or brother in bible and myth, the double, repressed self, alter ego, id, sub-personalities. When we come face-to-face with our darker side, we use metaphors to describe these shadow encounters: meeting our demons, wrestling with the devil, descent to the underworld, dark night of the soul, midlife crisis.” (Connie Zweig, Meeting the Shadow)
While Jung is known for bringing the concept of the shadow to public awareness in the modern day, this aspect of ourselves has long been recognized as a ubiquitous feature of human beings.
In 1886, before Jung made his mark, Robert Louis Stevenson created the now famous story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In his story Dr. Jekyll represents the respectable part of one’s personality, but when he transforms using drugs like Heroin, Alcohol and DMT, into Mr. Hyde, his dark shadow personality gains dominance over him and wreaks havoc on his life.
Although the shadow is an innate part of the human being, the vast majority of us are willfully blind regarding its existence. We hide our negative qualities, not only from others but from ourselves.
To do this we often criticize and condemn others to ensure our focus does not fall on our own faults and destructive tendencies. We go through life with a false air of moral superiority and a belief that while others act immorally and destructively, we ourselves are wholly virtuous and always in the right.
“Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.” (Carl Jung)
Making the Shadow Conscious
Some aspects of our shadow are the product of our evolution. We contain, like all animals, instincts for sex and aggression that we tend to repress in order to adapt to the social mores of the day. Some aspects of our shadow are the product of our upbringing. Personality traits, stuck inner children, and impulses that elicited fear or anxiety in our parents or teachers, for example, caused them to punish or criticize us; and so we reacted by repressing these characteristics.
We put up psychological defences to ensure they were not allowed expression, and thus these characteristics were repressed into the unconscious. As all humans have a shadow, what differentiates us from others is the degree to which we are conscious of it.
When our shadow remains unconscious, it wreaks havoc in our life. Repressed contents do not merely disappear, but rather they function independently of our conscious awareness. In other words, the shadow has the capacity to override our conscious ego and take possession of our being, exerting control over our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. When this happens we can be unconsciously driven into hard times, all the while remaining ignorant that these troubled periods were self-imposed, and not the product of bad luck or fate.
Born under a bad sign,
Been down since I began to crawl.
If it wasn’t for bad luck,
You know, I wouldn’t have no luck at all.
“The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves.” (Carl Jung)
The unconscious control which our shadow can exert upon us also accounts for the self destructive behaviors so many individuals struggle with and are unable to control despite consciously knowing they would be better off not engaging in such actions.
Many addicts are driven by their shadow, which accounts for the internal “war” which exists within them. One moment they tell themselves they are going to give up their addiction and live a clean life, and the next moment their shadow overrides their conscious ego and they enthusiastically seek out the next drink, “hit”, or sexual release.
As Robert Louis Stevenson notes in his book The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, man is not one, but truly two or many more sub-personalities; he has a conscious personality and a shadow, each of which often battle for supremacy within his mind.
If you want to see the reality of the released shadow, see people when they are fucked up!
“I spent all my money on women and booze. The rest I wasted!” – George Best, the world’s greatest footballer, who used alcohol to overcome shyness, married four Miss Worlds, and died age 53 after a Liver transplant.
George Gurdjieff used to use his celebrated “toast to the idiots” with calvados alcohol to inebriate his students so as to release their shadows. So he could see their faults. So he could remove their shadows, heal their shadows, – he was a Master! – and advise them as to what sort of idiots they were.
“Man has to realize that he possesses a shadow which is the dark side of his own personality; he is being compelled to recognize his “inferior function”, if only for the reason that he is so often overwhelmed by it, with the result that the light world of his conscious mind and his ethical values succumb to an invasion by the dark side. The whole suffering brought upon man by his experience of the inherent evil in his own nature – the whole immeasurable problem of “original sin”, in fact – threatens to annihilate the individual in a welter of anxiety and feelings of guilt.” (Depth Psychology and a New Ethic, Erich Neumann)
In order to avoid being the victim of “shadow-possession”, we must become conscious of our shadow qualities and integrate them into our conscious personality.
The ONLY way to do this, the ONLY techniques which work are the techniques of Energy Enhancement Meditation, grounding the shadow, transmuting the shadow, purifying the shadow, accepting by transmuting them with open arms not as abhorrent aspects of our self, but as necessary and vital parts of our being.
Toward this end it is useful to realize that the task in life is not only to become perfect, but to become a purified whole.
And as our original wholeness always entails both good and evil, light and darkness, before the Energy Enhancement Meditation purification, the achievement of purified wholeness – enlightenment – in personality development requires we assimilate our shadow into our conscious personality.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” (Carl Jung) – “and transmuting it” Satchidanand
However, as Jung says, this is extremely difficult.
Most cannot and will not admit that deep down they are not wholly virtuous, selfless, and good human beings, but instead contain selfish, destructive, amoral and immoral impulses and capacities. Most would rather deceive themselves with a blind optimism about the “goodness” of their nature, which why most remain fragmented individuals who are ignorant of their inner depths.
“The meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one’s own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is.” (Carl Jung)
“It is not sufficient to know one’s shadow.
Seeing it, talking about it, has no effect.
What does have an effect on the shadow is Energy Enhancement Meditation. We are a collection of good and bad parts, white and dark angels. What makes the part bad, the dark Angel is ancient trauma.
The part of Energy Enhancement Meditation which has been consciously removed from all traditional meditations is the grounding of negative energies, the transmutation of ancient trauma, the transformation of negative parts, dark Angels into positive parts, White Angels.
The process of change by Energy Enhancement Meditation is one of bit by bit. Changing each negativity into positivity, one by one!
Energy Blockages are Infinite..
Let us vow to end them All.
Zen, Great Vows.”
The Hidden Power of the Shadow
What is especially interesting is the idea that the shadow contains not just destructive aspects of the personality, but also potent, creative, and powerful capabilities and Talents from many past lifetimes of learning, practise and development evolution.
During our present lifetime development certain traits and impulses were condemned by our family, peers, and educators, not out of care but out of envy, fear, ignorance or jealousy. Our proclivity to abide by social expectations also caused us to repress ancient talents, innate abilities, and impulses which if cultivated and developed had the potential to make us more effective beings in the world.
For example, it is becoming more prevalent today for psychologists to diagnose individuals who question authority and show signs of extreme self reliance as being pathological, suffering from a condition they call “anti-authoritarian”. Individuals who are too self-reliant in our increasingly collective and dependent society are viewed by many as a threat. They are lone wolves amidst a flock of sheep, instead of the sheepdogs, protecting the sheep from the Satanic psychopathic wolves, they really are, and they are attacked and ridiculed by the herd because of it.
This is just one example of many regarding how our socialization into modern society handicaps our development. The bottom line is that with our higher energies trapped, labeled by others and our conscious ego as negative and bad, our growth can become blocked, and life, a wasteland.
For the sake of our personal development, we must, therefore, become more aware of our shadow and open our mind to the possibility that maybe we are not so friendly, righteous, and moral as we think. We must consider that perhaps there are unconscious aspects of ourselves driving our behavior “behind the scenes”. We must look down into our depths and realize that our conscious ego is not always in control, but is often overtaken by the power of our shadow.
Once we become more aware of these dark aspects of ourselves, we must honor them and find a way to integrate them into our life through Energy Enhancement Meditation.
In failing to do so, one will become weak and scattered. One cannot serve two inner drives without dissipating his strength and energies and falling prey to addiction, anomie and nihilism. The shadow must become transmuted, grounded, purified, a part of, integrated into one’s conscious personality by means of Energy Enhancement Meditation.
Is there a “Technique” to Integrate the Shadow?
Without Energy Enhancement Meditation there is no technique which can transmute the shadow and create a happy enlightened being..
Carl Jung says..
“There is no generally effective technique for assimilating the shadow. It is more like diplomacy or statesmanship and it is always an individual matter. First one has to accept and take seriously the existence of the shadow. Second, one has to become aware of its qualities and intentions. This happens through conscientious attention to moods, fantasies and impulses. Third, a long process of negotiation is unavoidable.” (Carl Jung)
As Jung notes in the passage above, he thought there is no general technique to integrate the shadow, even though the Buddha and Jesus Christ exemplified otherwise. For thousands of years great souls have come to earth to demonstrate otherwise, that enlightenment is, “Tat tvam asi” Thou art that!! You are a part of the Universe and have nothing else to seek.
Our shadow is not unique, and thus, to integrate it requires a general process of Energy Enhancement Meditation which acts in the same way on all humanity. “Eliminate the negative, accentuate the positive, That’s what gets results!” Lyrics, Johnny Mercer
No matter the approach we adopt, to properly integrate our shadow it is necessary to behave in ways which run counter to the mores of society and our own conscious moral compass. Most of our shadow qualities, after all, were repressed into our unconscious because we believed they were unacceptable, either socially or according to our family or peers.
Previously, previous to Energy Enhancement Meditation, a common technique in shadow integration is to find a healthy, productive, or at the very least, controlled outlet for either repressed aggression or sexual urges.
Another was to ignore customs one thought to be superficial or pointless, but previously conformed to in order to fit in. Another was to pursue a passion despite all those around you pressuring you otherwise. These tactics can help us separate ourselves from the expectations and “conforming-eye” of others, and allow us to look within, without judgment or condemnation, to discover who and what we really are.
Rather than that, as well as that, with Energy Enhancement Meditation, we just ground the symptoms above and eliminate their negative effects, purifying their driven action in our lives – “Eliminate the negative, accentuate the positive, That’s what gets results!” Lyrics, Johnny Mercer
Previously, previous to Energy Enhancement Meditation, a common technique in shadow integration was finding a way to negotiate with our shadow, and allow it to “live” in our conscious personality rather than repressing it, together with all of it’s negativity. You can not negotiate with evil!!
With Energy Enhancement Meditation we will ground the shadow and the released positive shadow will not only attain a more secure sense of selfhood, but also more knowledge about what it is we really want in life.
With Energy Enhancement Meditation, by healing the shadow by grounding we will be more capable of ignoring what others think we should be doing, more able to deviate from the fake news mainstream media of the herd, and thus more prepared to commence on a path to fulfill our own personal destiny and unique individuality.
The shadow, as Jung mentioned, when transmuted by Energy Enhancement Meditation, is the doorway to our Self. Previously many dared not descend into their depths, but with Energy Enhancement Meditation, this is now incredibly easy and safe. It is exactly what we must do if we are to become who we really are.
“The shadow, when it is transmuted with Energy Enhancement Meditation, is the source of renewal; the new and productive impulse cannot come from established values of the ego.
When there is an impasse, and sterile time in our lives — despite an adequate ego development — we must look to the dark, hitherto unacceptable side which has been at our conscious disposal, and transmute it, change it, purify it.….
This brings us to the fundamental fact that the shadow is the door to our individuality, and with Energy Enhancement Meditation, as the shadow renders us our first view of the unconscious part of our personality, it represents the first stage toward meeting the True Self and becoming enlightened.
There is, in fact, no access to the unconscious and to our own reality except through Energy Enhancement Meditation and the grounding, no other techniques exist.
No other techniques to integrate the shadow other than Energy Enhancement Meditation exist.
Even Jung admitted this. Every psychologist for the last one-hundred years has admitted the dearth of working techniques other than with Energy Enhancement Meditation.
This is the Energy Enhancement Meditation transmutation, the healing, the removal of the negative parts of the shadow, the cleaning and purification of the shadow until only positivity – positive talents and true direction – the Path of the Heart remains.
Only with Energy Enhancement Meditation, when we realize that part of ourselves which we have not hitherto seen or preferred not to see can we proceed to question and find the sources within the universe, our psychic connection to the universe, the infinity of chakras above the head and below the base.
An Energy Enhancement Meditation column of energy, “twixt heaven and earth” which connects us with infinite immortal spiritual energy our psychic body from which it feeds and the basis on which it rests.
Hence no progress or growth is possible until the shadow is adequately confronted with Energy Enhancement Meditation, and confronting means more than merely knowing about it. It is not until we have truly been energised by this infinite immortal, spiritual energy into seeing ourselves as we really are. Taking the Energy Enhancement Meditation Rite of Passage which shocks us into seeing our true psychic Higher Selves, instead of as we wish or hopefully assume we are, that we can take the first step toward individual reality.

This Energy Enhancement experience gives faith and trust…
In the ability of the higher self to sustain him, for everything that menaced him from inside he has made his own by Transmuting the Trauma.
Purifying the Pain.
He has acquired the right to believe that he will be able to overcome all future threats by the same means.
He has arrived at an inner certainty which makes him capable of self-reliance.” (Carl Jung, The Symbolic Life – adapted by Satchidanand)

The bold few who practise meditation contact the real reality, an infinite spiritual energy which activates a Rite of Passage which powers up inner resources freeing up and Intensifying Spiritual energy and powering up unconscious abilities – psychic powers and visions never before entered into, never before encountered. Parts of ourselves we never knew existed before we activated and energised with these Energy Enhancement techniques.
You see.. You don’t know who you really are.
If you knew who you really were you would never feel inferior, afraid, incompetent, depressed, juvenile, incomplete.
If you knew who you really were your search would be over.
You would be here.
You are a part of the universe.
You are the universe.
But you are disconnected.
You do not inhabit yourself.
It’s as if you have a Palace but only live in one room.
Inhabit All of yourself.
Stretch out and grasp that which you already have, within.
Connect to every part of yourself.
Grow into that infinite template recorded in your spiritual DNA
You are like a seed which has been kept in a box.
Get out of the Box.
Germinate that seed.
Energise that seed!!
Plant it in the good earth.
Roots down into the Center of the Earth.
Leaves stretching up into the Central Spiritual Sun.

It is also, more ancient, the shape of the Ankh from Egypt and thus the first Alchemist Hermes Trismegistus because this meditation is codified in VITRIOL – the first formula of Alchemy.
“Myths are first and foremost psychic phenomena that reveal the nature of the soul.” -Carl Jung
The spiritual reality of our conscious and unconscious experience is the key to unifying our duality. Psychological analysis is insightful and can make things more tolerable and manegable at best and overwelheming and mentally exhausting at worse. This is because the insights that psychology gives are abundant whereas the solutions offered for these are few if any and not very helpful.
“Well, what do I a do Doc?”
“Well, you have to look inside yourself and figure it out…and you can tell me all about next session”
Spiritual Insight – Energy Enhancement Meditation – combined with psychological knowledge is a more complete way of processing and integrating your Shadow Side into wholeness.
Because Energy Enhancement Meditation has actual meditive techniques that you can use and apply to your Shadow work. As long as we have a Shadow Side we have Negative Karmic Mass – trauma, pain, fustration, pessimism, depression, anxiety, grief, bitterness, spitefulness, jealousy, anger, greed, lust, addiction, escapism etc. These all need to be addressed and healed – transmuted and integrated.
You need energy to do this and Energy Enhancement Meditation teaches you how to power yourself up!
Energy Enhancement Meditation uses the Psychic Spiritual Center – Third Eye as primary gateway into healing yourself. If we just use psychological analysis then we are limited. If we just use creative therapies, dream exploration, trance-work etc then we are also limited still. This is because we need it all, both sides.
“Come together, right now,
Singing these famous song lyrics from the Beatles to yourself, You can come together, surpassing your current-self to a higher-self!
With Energy Enhancement Meditation.
The Dark Crystal 1982 film Directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz is an incredible story that depicts principals of the split existence in a fantasy world. The Mystics represent the Good, Wise and Gentle. The Skekis represent the Shadow – Greed, hatred, cruelity and all manor of Evil.
