Carl Jung, the father of analytical psychology, believed that when we resist looking at important aspects of ourselves that we may not want to see, those aspects may not only remain but can actually increase in size. This draws energy into the cycle of resistance: problem -> more resistance -> more problem. Therefore, ongoing resistance to aspects of oneself can create conflicting parts within. Having the willingness to look honestly at a problem is vital to unlocking the gates of undesired patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors, instead blazing the way to true freedom, peace and wholeness.
