Born as a savior or not?
Last week during a session I got to know an interesting aspect. This aspect was showing guilt and shame because it felt it had not been able to save the little boy/girl of this person in the past when the going got tough.
When I took a closer look I dis-covered that this aspect was the root of a belief that was telling this person she needed to save others/the world. Coming out of guilt. On the other side, I saw a belief that told her she needed to be saved by the other, the prince, the spiritual saint etc.
Interesting insights. By creating the space for this aspect to show itself and release its pain and guilt, the burden of over-responsibility felt by her and the “need” to be rescued, was released too.
Now she is free to integrate again with the little boy/girl. That was never really lost. It was the guilt and shame that kept her separated from her inner child. Now that (self)love has taken the place of guilt and shame, re-connection can take place.
I love it when these kind of deeper patterns come up. Which instantly show us why we behave as we do. Or better put, have these strong desires or emotions. Which often we cannot rationally explain but are felt and need to be felt thoroughly to understand them.
