The movie ‘Inside Out’ illustrates important issues regarding the relationship between childhood memories and programming, and ongoing mental health and wellbeing.
This movie will help you understand where chronic depression stems from (basically your dominant childhood emotion)..
It had me in tears and caught me off guard but not in a bad way, in an enlightened way.
A must watch ..
Inside Out focuses on an 11-year-old girl named Riley.
Well, more specifically, it focuses on the little voices inside of Riley’s head. Those voices are her emotions — Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust.
Like many kids, Riley’s dominant emotion is Joy.
She’s generally happy and, when she’s not, everything inside of her works to restore equilibrium and get back to that happy place.
When Riley’s family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, her world is turned upside down and everything that makes her, well, her (her “Personality Islands” — being a goofball, being honest, loving hockey, caring about her friends and family) is challenged.
As the wounded child heals, he learns to accept all people – even those whose behavior was evil towards him. He develops a greater understanding of others and for why they behave the way they do. This sets him free to forgive and to stop judging and to stop fixing.
Wisdom through suffering, acceptance, compassion and forgiveness heals the wounded child and from their own wisdom and experiences they can then go on to assist in the healing of other wounded children.
Love & baby steps,
Watching movies related to one of your archetypes, especially when going through the process of healing your shadow aspect is a powerful tool to help you understand yourself (your motivations, your passions, your fears – why you behave the way you do).

‘ReMoved’ is the award winning short film by Nathanael Matanick. It portrays the emotional effect on a child raised in an abusive, dysfunctional or emotionally neglectful household.
The film is deep and sad..but well worth watching.
