The Archetype of the Shadow
Thanks for that Michael, I have a clearer understanding now. There are a number of quite significant archetypes and symbolism in the dream you earlier posted, and you might want to peruse this LINK for ideas on how to proceed.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
