Key terms

Across the Junifyh website and primarily in articles, there are terms that may not be immediately understandable. The most relevant of them are explained here to make the reading easier. Although many of these terms are formulations from Carl Gustav Jung, their meanings are given in a simplified form here to concisely describe various doctrines. The given interpretation of the terms are not invariable, because the interpretations are only simply explained here. These are some of the partial and possible interpretations!

Spirit – the unconscious, the Invisible, the subject of the whole, the energy of the whole,  the source of life, universe, unknown, divinity, god, creator, all manifested.

Soul – the unconscious, the Invisible, unknown, Individual energy, inner master and guide, the subject of the individual, the source of individual life, the equivalent of life.

Psyche – The space where the soul is realized. Both the inner and the outer world. Where the psyche ends is a question.

Ego – Complex, replaced divinity with the human form. A blind spot of consciousness. Description of the self with which the mind likes to identify. 

Native American (Indian) – in deo – in god – Indian. An image of self in god. The inner image of being in harmony with oneself and the world.

the unconscious – Nonlinear subject, which has its own consciousness, a part of the psyche that is largely unknown. It includes soul, spirit, dreams, etc. This subject is connected to us and communicates with us. In other words – divinity.

Consciousness – Just a small part of the psyche. The part of the self that we are aware of.

Level of consciousness – The level of the person. His/ her maturity. The more mature a person becomes, the further away he or she is from ego and therefore is inevitably closer to divinity. 

Mind – It has many meanings. Krishnamurti speaks about mind as the modern replacement of the word Soul. Pjér speaks of it as an instrument of consciousness.

God – The creator, the creative power. This energy has no human form. The problem arises in the coloring of this word by faith and religion.

Animus – The female part of the Soul. Jing energy, unconscious male energy of a woman.

Anima – The male part of the Soul. Jung energy, unconscious female energy of a man.

Shadow – The hidden part of the soul. Everything we don’t realize. The core of the Shadow is the shady, inferior parts of us. 

Persona – The bright side of Self. The opposite of shadow- what we are aware of. How we present ourselves and how we want to be perceived.

The self – Spontaneity, contact with the self is unconditional happiness. Children are an example of it. Synthesis of the unconscious and consciousness.

Spirituality – A journey to the inner self. Getting to know myself. Contact with the unknown is called spirituality. It is an invisible journey, therefore it is spiritual, and also because it is directed towards the spirit.

Individuation – Similarity to spirituality, but more specific. It is a journey to the self. A process of unifying the shady parts of oneself. The path to the source of the self, which has a divine aspect.

Nature – External and internal teacher. Mother. Nature, spontaneity, everything that is independently determined. What is given. The pure energy of divinity – god – spirit.

Synchronicity – Meaningful match of events in matter, which takes place outside of us, and we realize its connection with us. In other words, a reflection of our inner experience in the outside world. Example – I’m going through a specific conflict, and I register that my friends or that people on TV talk about and point out how to address the problem.

Dreaming/ dreams – A state of being in which our unconscious part manifests and comes alive. The opposite is the awakened state.
