Well, I bet we got you thinking last week when we discussed the idea of “subpersonalities,” a useful notion from the holistic psychology of Dr. Roberto Assagioli.
This week we kick it down the road a little further as we talk about how to work with subs in a creative and masterful way
– it’s fun –
– how to utilize a helpful sub,
– teach or contain a problematic one,
– how to create an aspirational one, and
– learn how to act “as if” you are the person you are trying to become!
You are the star of your own movie, and your soul is the Director.
What’s playing right now – light comic romance or a disturbing Fellini?
Get to know your own stable of characters, be open for swift re-writes, and
enjoy the show!
God bless you – all of you – from all of us,
Mary & Erin
EPISODE 125: You’re A Character! Subpersonalities Part II
Everyone loves a good character, and you’ve got more than a few inside you.
We explore life through the characters in books, movies, the people around us, and … the people inside us.
In this episode, Mary and Erin go further into the way that our subpersonalities add color and texture to the unfolding story of our life, and how they might help us or hinder us.
Mary breaks free of her Prisoner subpersonality, and Erin continues the triumph over The Gripper, the control sub that gives her headaches.
Learn about our common mythic subpersonalities: the Critic, the Judge, the Saboteur, the Inner Child,
and why the Saboteur likes to show up just when things are going well.
(He means well, but … )
Mary will give you some tips about how to be the boss of you, when some of your little characters are trying to act out.
