‘Inside Out’ Movie ~ MUST WATCH!

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 ..

SG xInside Out (2015) Poster

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.

Depression: Birth Of A Healer

Guest Post: Elzbieta Pettingill (thegiftofdepression.com) ‘Life Realized’

Have you been affected by prolonged depression, or any other “mental disorder” for that matter? If the answer is yes, then you, my dear are a very, very special person.

It’s time for you to know what an incredible gift you are to this world. You didn’t come here by chance. You weren’t born in this particular physical body, with those particular genes that made you predisposed to depression or some other mental “issues” without a reason.

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.

Love & baby steps,
