We would be unwise to ignore this aspect of ourselves and shouldn’t dismiss such an image when it appears. We must acknowledge this dream figure as a reflection of ourselves in order to deal with a learnt sense of inferiority.
If we do not, we will be continually faced in life by our own sense of inferiority.
It is a lot easier to confront our own inadequacies in the dream state where we are safe. Often this is the first opportunity we have to meet the shadow.
