The human personality begins in the unconscious, which is called the individuation process. The individuation process is happening when the unknown sacred potential seed emerges with the sacred ultimate living energy in the unconsciousness. This process symbolizes the unconscious’s power, whereas it shows how the fragile consciousness (referring to the ego) is born to be free and gain strength through the infinite process.
It is not only the “ego” that first emerges from the unconsciousness. It grows through, with, and in the unconsciousness. This sacred mystery communication within is a must process in this realm.
That is why in the individuation process, the individual needs to be able to connect to the depths, the wider, and the integrated life within as much as possible. Every internal and external disruption could affect this fragile process and may create certain disorders. Thus, the ability to admit that there are disorders as a reality within becoming the act of accepting the self. This ability starts from the consciousness, which then descends to the depth and wider layers of unconsciousness.
Therefore, the individual who can accept his/her depth realities, whatever they are (i.e., the realities within), has started the healing transformation process. The acceptance process in mystery ways will be resonating in the deep collective layers of unconsciousness. When the individual can take things as they are, the healing journey toward self begins.
The process is going to take time, of course, and with leaps and bounds. When “wisdom begins,” the new expected reality is happening. Each thought becomes each step that leads to little healing transformation.
