The Power Of Introverts (19 mins)

 Oh my .. I love this TED Talk by Susan Cain author of ‘The Power Of Introverts’

Well worth the watch, made me laugh and cry :o)

I spend a lot of time in the ‘wilderness’ and come back with my insights, and that’s my superpower :o) Some of us are poets, writers, artists…  and we need that time alone.

The Wounded Healer

Empathetic people often try to heal the wounds of the most challenging characters and then feel very upset when they get kicked.

Remember that your job is to shine your light and be the Mona Lisa smile in the Universe rather than force awareness on those who have the equal right to sit in the shade.

All are beautiful and take the journey when and if they are ready

The Wounded Healer Archetype

Wounded Healer . Caregiver . Nurse . Therapist

Light:

Passion to serve others by repairing the body, mind, and spirit.

Ability to help transform pain into healing

Shadow:

Taking advantage of those who need help.

Failing to care for oneself,

The Wounded Healer is initiated into the art of healing through some form of personal hardship–anything from an actual physical injury or illness to the loss of all one’s earthly possessions.

Regardless of the shape of the wound, the challenge inherent in this initiation process is that one is unable to turn to others for help beyond a certain degree of support. Only the initiate can ultimately heal the wound; if it is an illness or accident, it will frequently be one for which there is no conventional cure.

The Wounded Healer archetype emerges in your psyche with the demand that you push yourself to a level of inner effort that becomes more a process of transformation than an attempt to heal an illness. If you have successfully completed the initiation, you inevitably experience an exceptional healing, and a path of service seems to be divinely provided shortly after the initiation is complete.

Manifests as a passion to serve others by repairing body, mind, and spirit.

Inherent strength and ability to assist people in transforming their pain into a healing process, and to channel to energy needed to generate physical and emotional changes.

The Shadow Aspect

The shadow of both the Healer and Wounded Healer manifests through a desire to take advantage of those who need help, including claims that you can heal any and every illness a person has.

Evaluation

Look beyond the obvious definition of what you do professionally, to a continual pattern of trying to heal others.

Movies Portraying ‘Wounded Healers’

Watching movies related to one of your core archetype especially when going through the process of healing is a powerful tool to help you understand yourself (your motivations, your passions, your fears – why you behave the way you do).

Healing the Wounded Child

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.

The Wounded Child Archetype

Light Attributes

Awakens compassion and desire to serve other Wounded Children.

Opens the learning path of forgiveness.

Shadow Attributes

Blames all dysfunctional relationships on childhood wounds.

Resists moving on through forgiveness.

The Wounded Child archetype holds the memories of the abuse, neglect, and other traumas that we have endured during childhood.

This may be the pattern people relate to the most, particularly since it has become the focus of therapy. The Wounded Child is accepted as a major culprit in the analysis of adult suffering.

The painful experiences of the Wounded Child archetype often awaken a deep sense of compassion and a desire to find a path of service aimed at helping other Wounded Children.

From a spiritual perspective, a wounded childhood cracks open the learning path of forgiveness.

The Shadow Aspect

The shadow aspect may manifest as an abiding sense of self-pity, a tendency to blame your parents for your current shortcomings and to resist moving on through forgiveness.

Evaluation

Choosing the Wounded Child suggests that you credit the painful and abusive experiences of your childhood with having a substantial influence on your adult life. Many people blame their Wounded Child, for instance, for all their subsequent dysfunctional relationships.
