According to Jung contents of the unconscious mind were once conscious and have become repressed; are subliminal perceptions; memories too unimportant to be remembered (Freud's pre-conscious); contents arising independently from the collective unconscious, a stratum common to all human beings that provides the creative and healing forces which are so important to meaningful human life.
For Jung, the unconscious fulfills a positive role, performing a therapeutic function by showing the conscious mind what needs to be done to get rid of unease and unhappiness and to achieve fuller satisfaction in life.
Freud saw the unconscious as a bin for receiving the conscious mind's rejected experiences and memories.
