Exposed and naked


What a problem it is when one identifies solely with the persona, the mask.  Rigorous denials of shadow and other unconscious contents is counterproductive as the ego’s links to the holistic self are weakened.  One becomes top heavy and ready for a crash.  When this happens, the shadow will spill out exposing the persona as a fraud.  It is akin to walking around without wearing any pants, being exposed and vulnerable.  Better to look into the mirror and see the self behind the persona.

About A Naturist's Lens

I am a therapist that focuses on the use of active imagination, photograph, dreamwork and Jungian Psychology in order to uncover the whole person hidden beneath layers of personae, complexes and clothing.

  1. This might be why the dream of being naked or partically naked and then mocked is such a common one.

  2. Love this… And just another reminder for me to embrace every aspect of myself (not just the positive)..

    Thank you for adding me to your flickr friends.. Its a shame you’re not posting any more there – your photos are truly beautiful..

  3. I would add to this the multitude of things that we surround ourselves with, be it a house or car.
