Our ego consists of twelve personas. Because they are fully integrated, their seamless transition from one engagement to the next makes the ego appear as one. The truth is that it is a crowd. Have you noticed how difficult it is to stick to a decision or resolution? You decide to never drink again, but when the opportunity presents itself, you do. Why does this happen? The answer is simple: the one who suffers the hangover is not the one who indulged the night before. Have you noticed this?
When you are in one persona you resolutely decide to follow a strict diet, but then another one binges. Yet they all feel like you. Some of them are more emotional, others more mental or physical, but they each span all three beings. Have you noticed them? From a self-observation perspective, which is central to the spiritual journey, it is very useful to become familiar with your inner personas. Some will be more dominant, while others will remain in the background, influencing you sub-consciously.
Imagine a kingdom where there are twelve princes and each gets a chance to rule for an hour. Imagine the chaos. Or twelve princesses. You get the idea. You are only one of these twelve at a given moment of time. It appears the only way to create some inner order is for the trouble makers to be beaten into submission. But then we become divided – part active and part passive without natural interaction with the external world. What is the situation in your life?
I went as far as giving my personas separate names, to make it easier for me to identify them. A good astrologer can help you identify these personas more clearly. A lot can be deduced from an accurate natal chart. Remember you have all twelve, but some will be more dominant than others depending on your habits and environment.
That inner conversation you so often have is the conversation between these personas. You know, when you talk to yourself and hope nobody noticed? I’m sure you have come across a vagrant talking to himself out loud? Most of us don’t externalize these conversations, but trust me it is happening all the time inside. Before one can speak, it has to ascend the throne of the ego. The switching happens really fast, so you don’t notice it.
It is also important to note that one persona seldom acts alone, it is usually in cahoots with others. The more personas that band together on an issue, the stronger the impulse and action that comes as a result. If you acted from all twelve, it will be an unstoppable force.
In terms of Mindful Healing, we analyse your archetypes to go deeper into understanding who you are and where the imbalances are coming from. Through this we can also look at how we can guide you to overcome your fears and move beyond the obstacles that challenge you.
Creating Union within yourself through the Archetype Analysis has various benefits:
Clarity of purpose and being
Influences centeredness and calm
The Archetype Analysis is also especially valuable for parents to understand their children better and what their purpose is and to guide them on their journeys.
