The Four Archetypes of Survival The Child, Victim, Prostitute, and Saboteur are all deeply involved in your most pressing challenges related to survival.

They can become your guardians and will preserve your integrity, refusing to let you negotiate it away in the name of survival.

Winter10-inner-child.pdf. Carl Jung, part 1: Taking inner life seriously | Mark Vernon. If you have ever thought of yourself as an introvert or extrovert; if you've ever deployed the notions of the archetypal or collective unconscious; if you've ever loved or loathed the new age; if you have ever done a Myers-Briggs personality or spirituality test; if you've ever been in counselling and sat opposite your therapist rather than lain on the couch – in all these cases, there's one man you can thank: Carl Gustav Jung.

The Swiss psychologist was born in 1875 and died on 6 June 1961, 50 years ago next week. His father was a village pastor. His grandfather – also Carl Gustav – was a physician and rector of Basel University. He was also rumoured to be an illegitimate son of Goethe, a myth Carl Gustav junior enjoyed, not least when he grew disappointed with his father's doubt-ridden Protestantism. Jung's mother was a more powerful figure, though she seems to have had a split personality. No 1 was the child of his parents and times. Jung finally came into his own at university. The Shadow: Our Darker Side. The Jungian shadow is composed of the dark and unknown aspects of personality.

The shadow is created by the oppositeness of life and the need for choice. To choose to be one way is to choose not to be another. The shadow is made up of the "unchosen" choices. If, as a child you choose to be tough, then you are not tender and vice versa. In a choice to be an athlete you may give up the options to be a musician or an artist. You learn to either keep your feelings in or to let them out. Choices are made and direction is given to personality development. Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of Dr. Sometimes life choices are not freely made.

Most often the shadow comes to be seen as entirely negative and its recognition is resisted. The "Golden Shadow" The shadow, however, does hold significant positive features for the personality. Murray Stein observes that the shadow represents the repressed in our life. Johnson reminds us that " to own one’s shadow is whole making.

Homecoming: Reclaiming and Healing Your Inner Child - John Bradshaw - Google 圖書. Are you outwardly successful but inwardly do you feel like a big kid? Do you aspire to be a loving parent but all too often “lose it” in hurtful ways?

Do you crave intimacy but sometimes wonder if it’s worth the struggle? Or are you plagued by constant vague feelings of anxiety or depression? If any of this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the hidden but damaging effects of a painful childhood—carrying within you a “wounded inner child” that is crying out for attention and healing. In this powerful book, John Bradshaw shows how we can learn to nurture that inner child, in essence offering ourselves the good parenting we needed and longed for. Through a step-by-step process of exploring the unfinished business of each developmental stage, we can break away from destructive family rules and roles and free ourselves to live responsibly in the present.

Who is your Inner Child? | Health Psychology Consultancy. The idea of the Inner Child has been around for a long time in western psychology, and serves a useful purpose in helping emotionally troubled adults resolve personal struggles. Working with the inner child is seen as a vital step by some professionals to aid psychological growth, and enhance the mental and spiritual health of adults. Who is your Inner Child? In popular psychology, the Inner Child concept – also called the Divine Child, Wonder Child, the True Self, or simply, the Child Within – refers to a part of the adult personality that houses child-like and adolescent behaviours, memories, emotions, habits, attitudes, and thought patterns. It’s generally seen as an autonomous sub-personality with its own needs, desires, issues and goals.

In this sense, the inner child functions independently, and sometimes in opposition to, the more mature parts of the adult personality. You might feel you have one or more of the following inner child characteristics: Like this: Like Loading... H.A.L.T. - Hungry, Angry, Lonely & Tired | success in recovery. When we stop using drugs and alcohol, we become familiar with the acronym H.A.L.T. We learn that it stands for hungry, angry, lonely and tired and knowing this can be a great strategy to help us recognize when we are about to enter any of these ‘danger zones’. Being hungry for positive emotional reinforcement in the form of love and understanding takes time and is different from physical hunger, which is what the H stands for. In our using, hunger was something, which was ignored or hardly felt. Instead of eating, we drank and used, which suppressed any feelings of hunger. Our bodies need nutrition to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Anger is a very difficult emotion to handle at the best of times and in early recovery we have few coping skills in this area. Loneliness in recovery can lead to a very dark place. The last of the H.A.L.T. acronyms is tired. Staying clean and sober is saving our lives and freeing us from the disease of addiction. About Tessa Hughes-Freeland. H.A.L.T. - Hungry, Angry, Lonely & Tired | success in recovery. Fuzzy Thinking in Early Addiction Recovery. We can expect the first few months after we stop drinking or doing drugs to be extreme. It’s normal to feel exhilarated, and who wouldn’t be? After all, we are finally no longer poisoning our bodies on a daily basis and we are enjoying a reprieve from the incessant drive to do that.

This happiness deriving from a newly sentient mind and body, which we haven’t experienced in years, reminds us of the way we sometimes felt in childhood or adolescence. Our nerves are raw and we are capable of feeling extreme joy and sadness. The value of this ‘pink cloud’ should in no way be undervalued, for it is carrying us through a very hard time: our emotional and physical separation from drugs or alcohol.

One of the most important things to do during this time is to change the people we hang out with.

Changing Shame-Based Behavior | Recovery from Addiction. It’s easy to see how people recovering from addiction have turned to drugs or alcohol to deaden the pain caused by shame-based thinking — a common trait in addictive people — and why correcting self-destructive thinking and behavior is essential to a successful recovery.

Don Miguel Ruiz wrote in The Four Agreements: “We punish ourselves over and over for a mistake we made or some way in which we don’t measure up to perfection. No other animal punishes itself over and over again for a single crime.” Addictive people make an art of self-punishment. We ruminate on and beat ourselves up for every mistake we’ve made, piling more painful memories onto the list every day until our minds are full of instances of our failure and thoughts of judgment, self-recrimination, regret and despair. We convince ourselves we are defective, unacceptable and hopeless.

What is Shame? It is not guilt. Shame is no help at all. It’s valuable to know the difference between guilt and shame. About Steve Cutler. Shame - The Disowned Part of the Self - article by Dr. Lynne Namka.
