For Jung the method contains , Awakening, disagreement with the Shadow, character, Ego, and later the animus/anima, being built-in into the unsleeping character. This strategy includes deaths, rebirths, depressions, losses, mourning, deconstruction of defenses and finally the beginning of the recent self, which services in provider to the better Self.
The levels of the Illuminative means are Conversion, Purgation, Darkness, Illumination, darkish evening of the Senses, darkish evening of the Soul and Union goals are natural items of the subconscious uncensored in symbolic shape. Convergent desires tell and direct either one of those paths. Jung Believed that humanity needs to individuate one individual at a time and that the cumulative impression would get advantages all within the evolution of consciousness.
