“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”

Joseph Campbell

Individuation is the process of integration of vital aspects of your unconscious psyche into your conscious life.

Becoming aware of your process of individuation is the first step towards improving the quality of your life. Individuation usually happens spontaneously, but proper psychological work can also stimulate it.

The most important part of the process is becoming aware of your “shadow” – all the traits you do not like about yourself. If you never achieve said awareness, you will always project these flaws onto others and blame them for your failures.

If you want to become a complete person, you must integrate your unconscious feminine side, if you are a man (Anima), or your unconscious masculine side, if you are a woman (Animus).

Truly knowing yourself takes a lot of courage, persistence, responsibility, and the ability to see yourself objectively and critically. Therefore, self-realization is a never-ending process, and in order to progress on your life path, you need to work on your individuation as long as you live.

The goal of individuation is not to become a perfect person but to become a whole one, integrating vital conscious and unconscious personality traits – both positive and negative.
