Live your own Myth?!
How do you this? What is a myth anyway?
It is a story, often based on semi- historical facts, folklore and metaphysics from different cultures. Above all, a myth is a story that comes from the deep unconscious and carries power and wisdom. To see these stories as just bedtime stories and childish fantasy would be a mistake.
Of course it may sound illogical to our normal way of thinking, but it would be a waste to therefore dismiss the myth altogether. To understand the language of the myth, we need to listen and speak the tongue of the unsconscious, emotional and symbolic world. Besides, this language communicates to us during our dreams, transmitting to us, messages of a mythological order. The myth instructs us and has a pedagogical function. Myth gives meaning to us: it teaches us about understanding, morality, wisdom, emotions, love and hate, justice, compassion etc.
The myth opens our inner world of experience and introduces our own, innate wisdom! Some adults are aware of this and raise their children with this consciousness. But also for the adult it is important not to exclude the myth from our lives. That why my question to you: who do you wish to be or where does your path lead towards?
Do you wish to be the Hero in your own story, making your own decisions? The myth can help you with this.
By identifying and living in accordance with a mythological theme, you (re)find a personal path, that takes you along your inner motivations, fate and calling! It is living an authentic live, in accord with your own integrity and destiny. This, instead of letting the unconscious of somebody/ something else lead your life! Through the myth, we can recognize those parts in ourselves that need guidance and healing.
The Myth heals, makes “whole” and gives direction. Wat do you need? Shall I help you discovering your mythological theme?
