The subpersonality 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, Mystic and Visionary
What are Subpersonalities?
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.
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.
Healing our subpersonalities involves balancing and then transcending them.
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 subpersonalities, as she sees healing them as a way to greater spiritual growth.
Almine: The Tools of the Immature Subpersonalities
The Inner Child uses our subconscious mind as its tool e.g., critical self-talk. Examples: Critic; Hurt Child; Invisible Child etc.
The 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. Examples: People Pleaser; Rescuer; Romantic etc.
The Sage or Wise Woman exerts command of inner knowing to discern what truth is. Examples: Hermit; Saint; Savior etc.
The Warrior or Warrioress wields our left brain to control life or have power over something rather than surrendering to Divine Grace. Examples: Dominatrix; Protector; Quester etc.
Our relationships mirror back to us what is real or unreal within ourselves. The 4 subpersonalities represent the unreal which we can become more aware of and heal on our journey of spiritual growth.
