The Unsafe 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 am not safe
🗝 I am unprotected
🗝 I am unsafe
SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Suffer from hyper-vigilance, always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
🌀 Overly naïve, trusting, and disclosing of intimate details before others have earned my trust, thus attracting narcissists, sociopaths and/or con artists who take advantage of my openness.
🌀 Take a lot of uncalculated risks, living close to the edge, with few safety nets.
🌀 Enmesh too quickly in intimate relationships, without taking time to know others or set wholesome boundaries.
🌀 Perceive much of what others say / do as threatening to my safety, even my life.
🌀 Unknowingly push others away, suspecting their motives and/or looking for ill intent
If you do recognize yourself in these archetypes, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Generate and source safety within my relationships with myself, in order to trust my ability to assert boundaries, ask for clarity, make valid and compelling requests, and create safety nets.
🌹 Generate and source safety within my spiritual relationships with the Universe.
🌹 Take time to discern and trust people/situations before diving all in and only after they have repeatedly demonstrated their trustworthiness.
