This article is written by a friend of mine, Jack. Essentially, he discusses how denial of our shadow selves, trauma and abuse passed down generations, will manifest externally through our collective subconscious shadow on the planet. Our collective psyche right now is getting our attention!! Injoy! -wyndstorm
The most un-talked about topic in Psychology!!
The transferal of polar energy.
CGJung, you are the best.
It is clear from experience that what we do at the unconscious level is transmitted to the unconsciousness of people around us and involuntarily affect them. Even when we are not around them physically, what we do in fantasy and imagination goes out through the collective unconscious and is felt by others. They may not know what it is, but it affect their behavior.
The East has long been convinced that the inner efforts of the individual have an effect on his whole environment but this idea seems very difficult for the West to grasp. Listen to what Jung said when asked if he thought there would be an atomic war. He said, “it depends on how may individuals could stand the tension of the opposites in themselves.”
Notice he said “individuals”,
It is extremely important to know oneself and be as conscious as your talent will allow. The simplest psychological rule says, when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate. What does this mean? That is to say, when the individual remains undivided (stays only in his consciousness) and does not become conscious of his inner opposite (which reside in his subconscious), the world (the human collective) must perforce (deliberately) act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves.
To simplify, …..individuals produce negative and positive energy that goes to the collective and is stored and in time will manifest itself collectively.
Please think of your thoughts as “pure source energy”, these thoughts have an “energetic size” to them that assigned to them probably by Nature. Visualize a (1) soft summer breeze”, (2) an elderly person falling on the ice, (3) someone being shot, (4) a young boy or girl four or five years of age horrifically abused over a period of 15 years.
Source Energy is neutral and non-polar, it is “raw energy” right out of the box, it is we HUMANS that assign polarity. Remember, we are co-creators even though we don’t think we are and even though we don’t remember. So, each one of the four “visual thoughts” above carry a specific amount of polar energy, some positive, some negative and each “visual thought” has a specific energetic capacity, meaning, (1) would be low energy positive and (4) high energy negative.
To put it another way, lets get back to the young child in (4) above. The child’s young psyche is not developed, consequently, defensive boundaries will be erected for survival plus a very suppressive response behavior will begin to develop, i.e., the child will begin to suppress all or most emotions, blame, guilt, etc each time there is a traumatic event. This is all stored in the Subconscious. What am I driving at?
As the years go by, this negative abuse, stored in the child’s subconscious (some may come to the surface) but most stays hidden, than one day, depending on the child’s Psychic capacity, the Psyche will decide it has had enough and will use stronger measure to get the child, young adults, or adults attention. What will the psyche do? Good question!
In worse case, you will go insane, the normal order of the psyche will break down completely and you will not recover during this incarnation, or you will be sufficiently jarred to start bringing this abuse to the surface and into consciousness to be recognized. What are the other methods the Psyche uses to get your attention? The Psyche will begin to crack and will begin to interfere with your day to day transactions. Lose of appetite, no sleep, avoid social contact ……..suicide and everything in between.
Remember, the Psyche is your friend, ally, it is the store room or vault of “absolute knowledge” , it is never wrong it always provides the right answer if asked, this is why you should always trust your internal guidance system, it is where the Christed Self resides, where the Source Image resides, it is a very sacred place, it is where you Higher Self resides. Here lies emence power and there is no individual that can stand up to it. All of this action by the psyche is to protect itself and you. This sacred place will not tolerate long term abuse. Why is no one writing about this?
Let us get back to child (4) in our examples above. As she/he battles there own private dragons, another war is raging that even bigger.
Remember, WE ARE ALL ONE, whether we remember it or not. Also, remember what was said above,………” from experience, what we do at the unconscious level is transmitted to the unconsciousness of people around us and involuntarily affect them. Even when we are not around them physically, what we do in fantasy and imagination goes out through the collective unconscious and is felt by others. They may not know what it is, but it affect their behavior.
So, this child’s suppressed trauma, that she was to young to deal with, even though she is on the other side of the world, even though she is Russian or Muslim, etc., and I’m American etc. her dragons are mine and I don’t know it. People, world wide have been violating this sacred Rule: That is to say, when the individual remains undivided (stays only in his consciousness) and does not become conscious of his/her inner opposite, the world (the human collective) must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves. The world is forced to act out the drama.
THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING WORLD WIDE, RIGHT NOW, RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES.
THE COLLECTIVE PSYCHE HAS HAD ENOUGH AND IS TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION.
The collective Psyche has been storing up negative energy for a very long time and it’s had enough.
