The Concept of Shadow by Carl Jung

Our shadow is dark, unclear, obscure, unknown, and it will potentially troubling and disturbing us and others.

The shadow expresses chaos, wildness, craziness, and madness of our character. The shadow

 tends NOT to obey rules; shadow forces us into chaos and battle.

We may see the shadow in other people easily and, if we *DARE, know it in ourselves, and talk about it.

Mostly, we deny shadow in ourselves and project it onto others. It is very easy to see the shadow in others.

Our shadow may appear in dreams, hallucinations and in our deep thoughts, as often as something, or someone who is bad, fearsome or shameful in some way.

Our shadow may seduce people through false friendship or threaten and hurt others with insensitive heart, and brutal way.
Shadow can make us to close our eyes to the facts and to see someone all bad.

Encounters with our shadow, as a part of the subconscious mind, may reveal deeper thoughts and fears.

Our shadow does crazy and weird things; our shadow may also take over direct physical action when the person is confused, astonished or drugged.

Carl Jung suggested that the best place the shadow can appear is in dreams, thoughts, visions, and it may take a variety of forms:

As a snake, a monster, a devil, a dragon, or some other dark, wild or exotic figure.

A powerful goal that some of us can do is to accept our shadow. Then, to re-integrate the shadow, the dark sides together, and changing the dark sides into the light sides.
Consequently; we would find our real character and our authentic self.
