Healing with inner archetypes

Posted on Jan 24, 2019 in Healing

Healing inner archetypesI recently watched an interesting film called Split about a man with dissociative identity disorder, brilliantly played by James McAvoy. It showed how emotional and physical trauma can cause aspects of the psyche to split off into independent identities, all of them displaying unique personalities and (fascinatingly to me as a holistic healer) physiologies. Some are male, some are female. One may smoke while another is a health fanatic and yet another has to inject insulin to control diabetes.

The film showed an extreme example of imbalance that ultimately led to criminal behaviour, but what many people aren’t aware of is that even in a healthy psyche this sort of separation is present to some extent.

Posted on Jun 11, 2018 in Healing, Spiritual living

It speaks about being able to be yourself and proudly showing to the world the full reality of who you are. Authenticity is a hot topic, especially with so much duplicity being exposed in everything from politics, to finance, to the entertainment industry.

A farewell to my father

Posted on Apr 26, 2018 in Healing, Spiritual living

DadIt’s strange and wonderful the way the universe works; sometimes with a jet black comic sense that has me gasping. The ability to hold all things lightly and see the funny side is a definite divine quality, and a healing one, in my experience.

So it was that just as I’d applied to be a volunteer healer at a local hospice, my own Dad began his outward journey from the physical plane. It’s as if it was necessary for me to undergo this deeply personal initiation before I could begin to walk alongside others through their experience.

Story planet

Posted on Jul 12, 2017 in Book reviews, Healing, Spiritual living

Story planetI’ve written before about my early days of spirituality, when I really didn’t want to be grounded in my body. It felt too heavy and dense, too problematic and painful for this being who just wanted to float and fly in the light without the perceived weight of physicality and form.

Ask Me, freedom from coercive control

Posted on May 30, 2017 in Healing, Spiritual living

Duluth power and control wheelFor the last couple of days I’ve been on a pilot training course to become one of the firstĀ Ask Me Ambassadors, whose role is to raise awareness and understanding of domestic abuse within my community and to act as a signpost to practical, professional support for those within it who are seeking help.

It’s a subject that is very dear to my heart, having experienced coercive control which involved psychological and emotional abuse within a relationship myself.
