For the collective unconscious which sends you these dreams already possesses the solution: nothing has been lost from the whole immemorial experience of humanity, every imaginable situation and every solution seem to have been foreseen by the collective unconscious. ~Carl Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking, Page 231.
The symbol for the Self is an idea of ta totality that is not identical with the ego. It is a consciousness which is not our consciousness, a light which is not our light. ~Carl Jung, Visions Seminar, Page
It is a great mistake in practice to treat an archetype as if it were a mere name, word, or concept. It is far more than that: it is a piece of life, an image connected with the living individual by the bridge of emotion.
