Jung’s inner Daimon - To Jung, he represented superior insight and functioned like a guru to him. Philemon (Jung's spirit guide) represented superior insight and helped him throughout his life.
“[Philemon] was simply a superior knowledge, and he taught me psychological objectivity and the actuality of the soul. He formulated and expressed everything which I had never thought.”

As you come to know your Daimon, the mysteries that lie outside of logic and thinking can be explored, and the door to your potential can be opened, it is a door not of our ordinary consciousness. Together your actions will be filled with purpose, meanings, and significance as you live your life with virtue and excellence.

Often your daimon has a hand in the narrative and color, and adding richness through the virtues and values you hold dear, while helping you color outside the lines.
