The Concept of “SELF” in JUNGIAN Psychology

The self is an archetype that represents the unification of the unconsciousness and consciousness of an individual.

The creation of the self occurs through a process known as

, in which the various aspects of personality are integrated together.

For Carl Jung, the *SELF* is not just “ME” but “god.” Carl Jung believed that individual get connected with his or her spirit.

It is the spirit that connects and is part of the universe. It is the coherent of whole that unifies both:




This idea of self has been found in other principles as

(Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism): the attainment of enlightenment and freeing of the self from attachment to worldly things, basically, it is an ultimate experience of some pleasurable emotion such as harmony or joy. It is very much spiritual and overjoyed harmony.

Enlightenment and freeing of the self is usually a goal for all the Buddha Monk. Some believe the idea is taken from Hinduism and Buddhism by Carl Jung.

Therefore; the ‘re-birth’ is a process of becoming aware of oneself and Carl Jung calls it *individuation* and that is returning to the *WHOLENESS* of birth, before we start to split our selves into many parts.
