We heal by understanding the archetypal symbolism in the meaning of our challenges instead of interpreting them according to our socialized personality’s fears and desires and act different by choice because of our insight
KANATA, Ontario (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
According to author Jayni Bloch, destructive patterns seen throughout history are destined to be repeated if humans don’t begin to heal themselves on a personal level. To help them along this path, she offers readers her new guide on how to practice the principles of personal healing, “The Riddle in the Mirror: A Journey in Search of Healing” (published by Balboa Press).
“The Riddle in the Mirror” emphasizes the importance of incorporating the spiritual and the cognitive. Bloch believes that archetypal symbolism is a guiding force to human behavior and contends that its greater influence must be understood before healing can begin at the individual level.
An excerpt from “The Riddle in the Mirror”:
“The weight of our fear crushes our connection to the meaning of life because it triggers survival instincts that taint human perception. Stuck with fear and sadness or greed and desire when met with challenges, we sever ourselves from our ability to connect to our spiritual insight for guidance. Initially challenges are riddles to our mind as we struggle to find answers, but from the perspective of our spirit, every painful experience clearly reveals the way to heal.”
“We heal by understanding the archetypal symbolism in the meaning of our challenges instead of interpreting them according to our socialized personality’s fears and desires and act different by choice because of our insight,” Bloch writes. “It is vital to understand what the healing journey is and how to participate.”
