The Inner-Child Archetype
Working with the Archetype system is a powerful healing experience when learning to identify ancient universal patterns within yourself, or what Carl Jung called the “collective unconscious.” Even when it seems as though you are partaking in a great deal of personal and spiritual growth, certain patterns are almost impossible to interrupt. They continue to show up in the form of chronic backache, arthritis, depression, anxiety, unhealthy relationships, lack of finances, addiction, sexual dysfunction, and so on.
To help interrupt these patterns, you can begin the process by identifying your 12 Archetypes. Four of the twelve Archetype patterns we all have in common include: The Inner-Child, The Victim, The Prostitute, and The Saboteur.
More specifically, your inner child is something that everyone has. And a lot of the time our inner child is suppressed due to an array of childhood trauma. For example, being forced to grow up before your time, not being able to express yourself as a child, having to push emotions down when you were too young to understand certain things. If your inner child is not nurtured and recognized, these traumas can resurface throughout our lives in the form of physical and emotional pain.
Please select one of six Inner-Children you feel most closely aligned:
Light Aspects: A desire to help other wounded children with compassion.
Dark Aspects: Unconsciously reenacting experiences of abuse, neglect and trauma from childhood and blames their parents for their choices and chaos in their lives.
