The author, after a brief history of the psychosomatic evolution referred to the interpretative categories of monism-dualism, shows how analytical psychology represents an effective bridge to cross and review the numerous expressions of psychosomatic paradigm including that one of its own overcoming. Through some cardinal principles of Jungian theory, such as archetype and synchronicity, the author proceeds searching a new postulate. The relationship between mind and matter is always synchronistic and this opens up to a reality that we still do not know. The author suggests, with the support of the clinical application, to study and take a deeper dive into the co-presence of noumenon unsaturated archetype with synchronicity, to overcome the current vision of unusual way of working and allow this energy situation being placed, by psychology, between the objects to be embraced and described, of its own lawful investigation. The current concept ratifies the end of theorising the psychosomatic paradigm in favour of a way of working.
