Frankly, it doesn't sound like anything I'd like to make conscious!
-- Carl Jung (from "New Paths in Psychology", in Collected Papers on Analytic Psychology, London, 1916) Freud said that the goal of therapy was to make the unconscious conscious.
He carefully recorded his dreams, fantasies, and visions, and drew, painted, and sculpted them as well.
He certainly made that the goal of his work as a theorist.
And yet he makes the unconscious sound very unpleasant, to say the least: It is a cauldron of seething desires, a bottomless pit of perverse and incestuous cravings, a burial ground for frightening experiences which nevertheless come back to haunt us.
In the fall of 1913, he had a vision of a "monstrous flood" engulfing most of Europe and lapping at the mountains of his native Switzerland. Jung felt that there had been a connection, somehow, between himself as an individual and humanity in general that could not be explained away.
He saw thousands of people drowning and civilization crumbling. This vision was followed, in the next few weeks, by dreams of eternal winters and rivers of blood. From then until 1928, he was to go through a rather painful process of self-exploration that formed the basis of all of his later theorizing.
