They also point towards the ultimate goal of inner and outer freedom.
Psychosynthesis Star Diagram formulated by Roberto Assagioli "I" is the direct "reflection" or "projection" of Self Assagioli and the essential being of the person, distinct but not separate from all contents of experience.
Psychosynthesis suggests that "we can experience the will as having four stages. The first stage could be described as 'having no will'",  and might perhaps be linked with the hegemony of the lower unconscious.
We might still feel that we cannot actually do it, but we know Psychosynthesis the is "I" who is aware of the psyche-soma contents as they pass in and out of awareness; the contents come and go, while "I" may remain present to each experience as it arises. But Psychosynthesis the is dynamic as well as receptive: Since "I" is distinct from any and all contents and structures of experience, "I" can be thought of as not a "self" at all but as "noself".
That is, "I" is never the object of experience. This "noself" view of "I" can be seen in Assagioli's discussion of "I" as a reflection of Self: It is, in other words, not a new and different light but a projection of its luminous source".
Self[ edit ] Pervading all the areas mapped by the oval diagram, distinct but not separate from all of them, is Self which has also been called Higher Self or Transpersonal Self. The concept of Self points towards a source of wisdom and guidance within the person, a source which can operate quite beyond the control of the conscious personality.
Since Self pervades all levels, an ongoing lived relationship with Self—Self-realization—may lead anywhere on the diagram as one's direction unfolds this is one reason for not illustrating Self at the top of the diagram, a representation that tends to give the impression that Self-realization leads only into the higher unconscious.
Relating to Self may lead for example to engagement with addictions and compulsions, to the heights of creative and religious experience, to the mysteries of unitive experience, to issues of meaning and mortality, to grappling with early childhood wounding, to discerning a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
The relationship of "I" and Self is paradoxical. Assagioli was clear that "I" and Self were from one point of view, one. He wrote, "There are not really two selves, two independent and separate entities.
The Self is one". But Assagioli also understood that there could be a meaningful relationship between the person and Self as well: Accounts of religious experiences often speak of a "call" from God, or a "pull" from some Higher Power; this sometimes starts a "dialogue" between the man [or woman] and this "higher Source" Rather, the potential for a conscious relationship with Self exists for every person at all times and may be assumed to be implicit in every moment of every day and in every phase of life, even when one does not recognize this.
Whether within one's private inner world of feelings, thoughts, and dreams, or within one's relationships with other people and the natural world, a meaningful ongoing relationship with Self may be lived.
Stages[ edit ] Writing about the model of the person presented above, Assagioli states that it is a "structural, static, almost 'anatomical' representation of our inner constitution, while it leaves out its dynamic aspect, which is the most important and essential one".
This scheme can be called the "stages of psychosynthesis", and is presented here. It is important to note that although the linear progression of the following stages does make logical sense, these stages may not in fact be experienced in this sequence; they are not a ladder up which one climbs, but aspects of a single process.
Further, one never outgrows these stages; any stage can be present at any moment throughout the process of Psychosynthesis, Assaglioli acknowledging 'persisting traits belonging to preceding psychological ages' and the perennial possibility of 'retrogression to primitive stages'.
