What To Expect On Your
Superhero Training Journey
SH Story Telling 1 Intro
Story telling is as old as humanity. There never was a time when stories were not an integral part of the fabric of community and family. Many of the motifs common to every civilization re-appear in the stories and mythos of diverse and totally unrelated cultures and tribes.
The reason for this uninterrupted perennial appearance of the exact same themes and structures across the millennia is because the patterns of these stories are woven into the fabric of soul.
Archetypal patterns and themes form the blueprint and templates through which consciousness is bound to flow into the material world. Like liquid wax flowing into a mold, consciousness pours forth its creative life force into these patterns and we, as people are bound to play out the dynamics they contain.
This is a great mystical phenomenon known to the few and understood by even less. Stories, mythology, fairy tales and such are keys to unlocking the mystery of our souls. They are the guides, the maps which can help us navigate the mysterious hidden terrain of our inner most being. They are the symbols, metaphors and images which alert us to the nature of the experiences with which we shall be challenged.
In Superhero training we deal with the subject of archetypes in depth. The reason why we focus on archetypal patterns so much is because they are precisely the structures that need to be transcended by consciousness, the spiritual being we actually are. This is the whole game of life.
Consciousness shines through these patterns and animates the world of form according to their design. In the structure of our psyche the ego construct is composed of 4 main archetypal patterns – the wounded child, prostitute, saboteur and victim. When we are expressing through our lower ego mind we are stuck in one or more of these patterns. It is when we learn how to liberate ourselves from their suffocating affect and transcend their influence that we truly become masters of our minds and Superheroes in the world of form.
