Your Inner Family Archetypes-Four Vital Energies

 

One of the best ways to understand why you do what you do—or why your significant others, your in-laws, and even your favorite celebrities do what they do—is to explore the universal archetypes that influence behavior.Carl Jung first introduced archetypes as important insights into human behavior. Archetypes convey an energy, a thoughtform that describes an aspect of our psyche. There are four archetypal energies that everyone functions through these are our inner family archetypes, because they are best described through the concepts of Father, Mother, Boychild and Girlchild. Each archetype has a loving and an unloving side. When our archetypes are loving, we outpicture our highest soul potential. When they are unloving, we experience rebellion, fragmentation, pain and isolation. We express our archetypes through our conscious, subconscious, unconscious or superconscious mind. The specific pattern we print from birth influences how we think and feel, what we aspire to and what we reject.

When our Father archetype is loving, we experience a sense of protection, direction, discipline and conditional love. When our Father archetypes is unloving, we experience the energy of the tyrant, the critic, and the controller.

When our Boychild archetype is loving, we experience a sense of courage, adventure, heroism, enterprise, loyalty, honor and patriotism. When our Boychild archetype is unloving, we experience the energy of the bully and the rebel.

When our Mother archetype is loving, we experience a sense of nurturing, guiding, teaching, explaining and unconditional love. When our Mother archetype is unloving, we experience the energy that is abandoning, spoiling or aloof.

When our Girlchild archetype is loving, we experience a sense of caring, finesse, beauty, intuition and mysticism, a spehrical consciousness. When our Girlchild archetype is unloving, we experience the energy of the victim, martyr, and soap-opera queen.
