The first step of the pathway towards our true self is to recognize our shadow and all that we don't accept about ourselves. Much is found in ancient knowledge about this process of transformation and in ancient Alchemy tradition, this phase is called "Nigredo".
For Carl Jung, 'the rediscovery of the principles of alchemy came to be an important part of my work as a pioneer of psychology' and defined Nigredo in two parts: the first status of unawareness and a second one concerning the individuation of the shadows aspects.
We often fear the dark sides of our personality and tend to hide or avoid them, as we believe they can harm and bring us to destruction. On the contrary, to face them is the first action that gives us back the key to our true core, and real inner strength as complete spirits. It is an exciting moment of transformation, that mobilizes a lot of energies, every time we are aware of this.
My intention is that this awakening of consciousness happens to you every time you look at this artwork.
