The Invisible Child • Wounded Child Archetypes
A wounded child archetype is a set of traits and behaviours acquired in childhood from parental or cultural conditioning that falsely defined who you truly are.
False Identities to Release
🗝 I don’t matter
🗝 I am not important
🗝 I am invisible
SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Live in chronic stress / fear that it’s dangerous to be seen (eg. I’ll be burnt at the stake or hacked down to size).
🌀 Shy, always redirect focus on others to hide true self, worth, and/or power.
🌀 Unable not to give to others, even if at my own expense, exhaustion or annihilation.
🌀 Overwork and rarely create sustainable systems to fulfill my deepest needs / desires.
🌀 Wait passively for someone to “discover” me, as if waiting for permission to be me.
🌀 Feel lost or disappear self when not given a designated role in a room.
🌀 Chronically frustrated at not being able to impact others in the way(s) I know I can.
If you do recognize yourself in these archetypes, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Initiate my own authentic leadership without waiting for others to invite me.
🌹 Deeply listen to and trust my inner guidance, knowing my worth and that I matter.
🌹 Prioritize my own my well being, fill my own cup before giving from my overflow.
