 This mural deals with a very important topic for me about the power of 
self-knowledge and accepting our ”dark side”, that is, the shadow, the 
concept of psychological theory that Carl Jung spoke of.
The Shadow is a part of the unconscious mind that contains all the 
repressed feelings, impulses and desires that one is not comfortable 
with. When these feelings are suppressed, they can often manifest in 
different ways and people seek to release them at times. through rituals 
such as black magic.

The practice of black magic is based on the premise of using 
supernatural forces or rituals to harm enemies or to gain power. The 
power harnessed through these rituals is believed to have its origin in 
the depths of the Shadow, the dark part of the human psyche.
That is why Jung believed that the practice of black magic is connected 
to the unconscious mind of a person.

When a person practices black magic, they are essentially trying to tap 
into the dark side of the psyche to gain power or manipulate the world 
around them. This goal is often considered unethical and can have 
dangerous consequences. In Jung’s view, this practice is a manifestation 
of repressed feelings and desires that the individual tries to keep 

While black magic generally has a negative connotation, it can also be 
used in beneficial ways.
For example, it can be used to help a person find peace with their 
Shadow, the dark side of their psyche as described by Carl Jung. By 
engaging with the Shadow, a person can learn more about himself and 
understand how he can better manage his feelings and repressed desires.
