The implications of the shadow are vast. It has historically evoked connotations of both good and evil and of separateness and unity. In Jungian psychology, the shadow acts as a complementary element to our conscious persona: the absence of inner light implies a lack of awareness and connection to our own capacity for thought, sensitivity, and compassion. Yet without the acknowledgement of the shadow there lacks the potential for complete awareness and wholeness. Neither light nor shadow can exist alone. Therefore the connotation for good or bad is negated; the shadow, connected to the light, exists within a neutral and mutual partnership.
