The secret lies in the hidden and rejected

By May 5, 2022May 27th, 2022No Comments

Here is a little terrifying fact for you:

All those parts of you that you push away – the parts you dislike or maybe even deny exist at all. The parts that you haven’t given any attention because you either take them for granted, think they are a liability, or don’t see the value of. Those parts. They are the key to whatever is holding you back.
I would put money on it. (At least a whole fiver). I’ve seen it time and time again. The very things you most need right now to feel stronger, level up, experience more joy, success, or whatever you desire – are the very things that are lying dormant within you right this second and being COMPLETELY NEGLECTED OR REJECTED.
When I use Goddess archetypes in my work, there will always be one archetype that a person reacts to negatively or don’t resonate with at all (sometimes they might just overlook the archetype completely). This is always. And I mean always. The one that they most need.
Here’s some examples:
1. The time that someone did a spreadsheet to prove that they weren’t the archetype that *sometimes* has control issues… bwahahahaha. At the time, they really needed to be aware of that part of their character because it was unconsciously running the show.
2. The time someone swore blind that their ‘relaxed’ attitude to dating was totally ok until they realised that to escape their negative relationship patterns, they were going to need to channel the more ‘responsible’ archetype they had an aversion to (me, I’m talking about myself here, I couldn’t stand this archetype but now I love her!).
3. The time that someone was so scared of everything that they would even freak out at being ankle high in the sea. She realised that to level up in life she was going to need to get comfortable with risk and channel a ‘wilder’ archetype (one that she really wanted to run from).
4. The person who was really ‘left cold’ by the most spiritual and woo woo of the archetypes (because that stuff is just for irrational people amiright?!). Yet when she finally tried meditation (only because she discovered it is scientifically proven, mind you) it completely transformed her wellbeing…
Your ego is probably really invested in NOT being these hidden and rejected parts and so will do its best to terrify you into never being them. Which in turn means that it can be slightly – or extremely – uncomfortable to unleash them.
But unleash them we must!
Because this is how we level up and get more of what we really want and need.
How?…
Curiosity, surrender, getting guidance and support, deep listening, energy healing, and having a really healthy sense of humour about yourself (this one is especially important and sadly lacking in the personal development world at times).

As a professional I always have at least one eye on what is hidden and rejected because I know this is where the real transformation happens.

Sometimes it helps to have someone who can see you clearly and help you to see yourself clearly too – especially the strengths and resources you never knew you had.

That’s where I come in! And that’s where all the tools and techniques I teach in my Membership and CCE Course ‘Deeper’ come in too (and you get to run all of these techniques on yourself).
