Finding Someone To Confide In ..

Healing Yourself

Finding A Trusted Advisor

If is often best to find someone preferably of the same sex if you need support. A therapist/ mentor/ advisor who has been in a similar situation to you..  someone who understands narcissism, abuse and trauma and can support you with talk therapy. Someone experienced, non judgemental and healthy who can help you unscramble your mind. Someone safe that you grow to trust. They can help you make plans and take baby steps to create health, peace and freedom in your life. It’s hard to make decisions when your head feels like scrambled eggs from subtle psychological abuse (covert narcissism) or when you’re exhausted from the chronic stress of dealing with the unreasonable.

Do you homework to find the right person.

Psychotherapy- an emotionally charged, confiding interaction between a trained therapist and someone who suffers from psychological difficultiesBy the time I knew I had to leave my unhealthy marriage .. I was in a desperate situation. I hadn’t been big on prayer ..but I prayed out of sheer desperation for the right person to come into my life. I had no idea how I was going to continue without any healthy support.

I prayed for someone who would understand me and my situation and who would be good for me and then I took action when I was referred to counsellors.

The Teacher Archetype

Teacher . Instructor . Educator . Mentor

Light:

Ability to communicate knowledge, experience, skill or wisdom.

Shadow:

Manipulating or abusing students.

Teaching negative traits and destructive skills.

Teaching is the art of communicating knowledge, experience, skill, and wisdom to another.

Teaching, or offering instruction of any kind, can manifest through parental guidance, business apprenticeship, or by inspired instruction in ethics or kindness.

The Shadow Aspect

The shadow Teacher manifests as a desire to manipulate or abuse those you are instructing; to be more concerned with recognition than with imparting knowledge; or, like the shadow Mentor, to teach negative traits and destructive skills, like burglary or how to cheat on the job.

Evaluation

To determine whether this archetype is part of your support team, ask yourself if others look to you as a teacher in any situation. Are you the one that others seek out for the richness of your experience, or to teach them the ropes?

Movies with Teacher Archetypes

Watching movies related to one of your core 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).
