    You know how gays talk about love and light constantly? Essentially what you are trying to do is to keep the homosexual immature light shine while eclipsing it with your inner shadow. It's an as above so below kind of spiritual alchemy

    Why not wait until you have time for a full discussion? This is hardly a topic that should be absorbed in this manner. Start a new thread after work, anon.

    I'm confused too. I looked up some articles about it recently and they all talk about not repressing the bad parts of you, but it's like, what does that mean? Do evil? Can you ever improve yourself or is it all just burying your bad tendencies, and is there even a difference between the two?

    I'm far too ego-driven. I even get angry if someone sees me differently than I want to be seen, even if their assessment isn't necessarily bad. I don't know if shadow integration is the way out.

      It's about realizing you have a violent, pessimistic monkey brain and knowing when to ignore it and knowing when to ape out.

      It's about admitting to your capacity to do evil. You're capable of rape, murder, manipulation and all other evil things. But if you believe you're not the kind of person to do these things then they exist in your unconscious mind which possesses you when you're triggered into unconsciousness. You know those guys whose dad beat their mum and then they grow up thinking they'll never be that kind of guy then they get into a relationship and the minute the woman says something triggering to them they're beating her? They're possessed by their shadow. If you admit you're capable of doing these things you bring them into the conscious mind and then can control them I.e not do them.

    Meditating and exploring the darkest, most repressed desires and beliefs in your mind. It sounds quite simple but it's not so easy. I suppose a modern example would be an individual who preaches love and equality between all people and races encountering parts of them that, contrary to what they may believe about themselves, actually holds quite a bit of hatred toward certain groups of people. If one does not consciously accept, integrate and control that part of them, it will direct their life unconsciously.

    A good start would be to listen to Alan Watts lecture on Carl Jung and apply that to yourself.

    You integrate it by recognizing when it is in control.

    Observe what triggers you and realize that nearly everything that annoys you is something you do yourself that you subconsciously notice and hate. You must accept what you are or improve on it. That is how you integrate your shadow. Be good to others and understand the confinement in the prison that is your body is only temporary but it is a pressure cooker for your soul. It is a time and place to transmute it from something low vibrational to a higher and purer state of being. There are many ways and methods used to self improve so I won’t elaborate on those here. Good luck. I believe in you all and I love you all.

      True for me.
      My pet peeves are people seeking attention, flaunting their power, or behaving fakely to keep up appearances. All things I tend to do.

    You bring into awareness all the things that you repress, are unaware of but still follow you in every direction in life and creates patterns that may or may not help you.
    >What are the main benefits?
    Integrating and transforming the shadow means that you make peace with and change some aspects that are not serving your greatest good. In the end you can be more your authentic self.

      you just gave me this idea. you can try doing the Opening of the Key Spread with the Tarot. on the bottom left the three cards represent Psychological factors. if you envision this as your Shadow before you shuffle you will see the two paths that you can take with your shadow

    You make friends with it. Benefit is serenity and conservation of energy. Then you can (choose to) do magical things with the conserved energy.

    I think Jung had good ideas but what I have to ask is if I cast a shadow on the ground is that shadow not just an extension of myself? I think is the idea of the shadow is a rather dualistic view of psychology and ironic coming from Jung.

      I believe that is the whole idea of integrating with your shadow. It's like accepting we are also our buttholes.

        But the idea of the shadow implies that the self is not whole to begin with and externalizes the self. Why would something need to be integrated into the self when the self exists as is?

          The conscious ego(which is what most people exist as) is not the Self. You integrate all unconscious aspects of your being to "become" the Self.

    I have spent decades trying to tame the beast within. Ok I'll break it down. We are all stuck on repeat. Your first experiences in life you will keep repeating until you process it. Two basic reactions to your first experiences. Positive, then hey that worked I'll keep doing that. Negative, I'll never do that again, it's icky. Either way the ego is then formed.

    To integrate you meditate and instead of focusing on breath you focus whatever you are trying to.. kill. I call it the meditation kill technique, because anything I do this with goes bye bye forever including sickness and pain. Even the worst feelings I've faced down and if I can make it to the end of the rabbit hole without running I win. But sometimes it takes awhile and I gotta try over and over. But it always works eventually.

    With this tech I have cured myself of full schizo and have become absolute Chad as no words can hurt me since I cleared out most of my bad triggers. Also i know how the mind works so my words are overpowered. it's completely unfair. This is why I call it tongue fu. You can spend decades training your body, or your mind. Mind is better, I can face down groups of dudes solo. It's insane. Totally worth the effort. Find yourself discover god.

    your shadow is the set of (your) imperfections that you consciously reject
    integrate your shadow by admitting your imperfection, forgiving your mistakes and allow yourself to be as well intended as possible for you and the ones around you

    The only way to truly integrate is to interact with Spirit or Self long enough that you no longer associate with whatever programming you have acquired that is not part of your innate nature. The meeting point between conscious and unconscious is breath, that is why most meditation practices start there. Breath is usually controlled via the parasympathetic(autonomous) nervous system, but you can choose to control it just as well. It's the point where you let control be taken that unlocks the direct connection to the unconscious. Then you realized that you actually control very little of your own body's faculties, that there's a subtle body superimposed onto the physical and a much different type of breath, much more primordial, divine.
    When the physical and subtle come into harmony, the level of spiritual becomes illuminated.
    The body beyond the body, the Self beyond the self.
