**Myss, Caroline Myss.. no mess, beyond mine.
i’m not done learning about the archetypes yet. not by a long shot. looks like i still have 9 hours of listening to do. today’s lunch learning was princess, damsel, virgin. hmph. light. i don’t happen to carry these with me, though i have a recognition of damsel, ‘needing to be rescued’… but the princess, ‘someone will take care of me’ is not in me. i can point at my friends who have this one right now, easy-peasy, because i recognize it, but don’t understand. its a perpetually young one, almost naive… that is waiting for her prince, her ‘one’… in order to evolve she has to face and break her own helplessness, evidently.
as for damsel? I’ve had a wild desire to be rescued, i’ll admit. I’ve wanted to be airlifted right out of what was going on and let someone else do all the work. i just don’t believe anyone can do that for me. so what does that make me? cynic?
the virgin, my friends, has little to do with sex. think, more along the lines of ‘virgin territories’… uncharted waters. the person who has the Virgin archetype is one who is more clean and free than the rest of us, unencumbered by the mess and weight of the past.
Myss says we carry 12 plus archetypes in us. I don’t think i’ve got these, beyond my glance at Damsel. You?
