Carl Jung was right…

Carl Jung was right. He is not only known for developing his Shadow-work and the Personality Archetypes, but also for his brilliant contribution to the phenomenon: Collective Consciousness. Collective consciousness is about the consciousness of families, tribes and (sub)-groups. One of the characteristics is that one individual’s will-power and personality is influenced subconsciously. You think it’s you who thinks or says such and such, but you really might be aligned or connected to a bigger picture. That bigger picture could include also the connection to experienced traumas by previous generations, which are transferable as is shown also in clinical psychology science and Systemic Work: traumas can be stored in the limbic brain for 3-7 generations.  


Fathers-day…

Respect, honoring Fathers-day… for many people an insightful moment of reflection and gratitude. Really? It’s awesome if your heart naturally overflows from love and gratitude for the part you father contributes or has contributed in your life. But, for maybe even more people it’s a day with mixed feelings or just anger and sadness. Honoring your parents is a duty that has been imposed in your education by religions and other ideologies. It’s one of the Ten Commandments. Honoring your elders is an integral part in every culture. The “respect and honoring your parents” from the heart, which is so totally different then politeness, can be such a difficult act to do for those who have suffered abuse and rejection. They need compassion and no condemnation. They need more, actually. Much personal work needs to be done to undergo eventually a huge metamorphosis and release all bitterness, anger and pain.
