The sub-personalities are the emotional components and acquiring balance between them is crucial to stop co-dependent patterns with others. Almine, Mystic and Visionary
Sub-personalities: Dysfunctional Nurturer
The dysfunctional Nurturer controls our lives through feelings by using our unconscious right brain. It focuses only on feeling good i.e., a physical life of sensuality.
Another aspect of the dysfunctional Nurturer involves it nurturing everyone else except itself. Some examples include the codependent, people pleaser and the rescuer.
The dysfunctional Nurturer can be a controlling or judgmental or critical perfectionist parent.
Examples of dysfunctional Nurturer include the addict, codependent, people pleaser or rescuer, as well as different types of parents like the authoritarian father or mother, controlling father or mother, critical father or mother, negative father or mother, perfectionistic father or mother, punishing father or mother and withdrawn father or mother.
Note: If you had dysfunctional parents, we can reparent our inner child by being an unconditional loving parent to ourselves.
Man is the densest of all beings; the microcosm of the macrocosm
As such he is the pivot point of cosmic chance.
Balancing the inner sub-personalities,
he sets in motion a ripple effect that closes down
the illusion of time and space. ~Almine, Mystic & Visionary
What are Subpersonalities?
Subpersonalities originally formed to protect us. If we find them triggered often, then they also hinder our emotional and spiritual growth or just finding joy in our lives.
A simple way to explain subpersonalities – do you still experience different critical self talk in your head? These voices indicate unhealed trauma or unresolved conflicts within us.
• Many different personality selves or subpersonalities live within each of us. Each has its own feelings and thoughts.
• They form at different ages as a result of life experiences to protect us.
• You may have experienced the people pleaser, the wounded inner child, or the critic that limits your finances. These represent a few examples of subpersonalities of as many as up to 12 in the average person.
• Subpersonalities act as a range of behaviors and feelings which work outside our consciousness and even against our conscious intentions. Some relate to different roles in our lives, some as a result of traumas from childhood.
• Roberto Assagioli M.D., founder of Psychosynthesis says that we can mold them into a higher unity by recognizing (and healing them) rather than identifying with them.
• Healing our subpersonalities involves balancing and then transcending them. As I said earlier, unhealed subpersonalities impede our spiritual growth.
The following is a brief summary of the teachings of Almine, Mystic & Visionary on our subpersonalities which include our inner child, nurturer, sage and warrior. I like Almine’s approach in contrast to known psychological methods to sub-personalities, as she sees healing them as a way to greater spiritual growth.
The subpersonalities of the Sage, Warrior and Nurturer represent the three stages of linear change: Transfiguration, transformation and transmutation. The average person goes through these stages again and again … But some portions of the insights are not gained during each stage. Thus, there are unevolved parts of us that fall behind; stay immature. Almine
