Transforming A Subpersonality
Meditation Teacher & Author
Our personalities are composed of many parts. The inner critic and inner child are well-known ones, but there are many others: a nurturing self, an obedient self, a rebellious self, a parent-like self, a confident self, a fearful self, a saboteur self, and so on. While helpful in certain situations, they can become utterly destructive when taken to extremes. These personalities are often created when we are younger, to help us cope with challenging life situations. If you feel yourself resisting growth or what you know is good for your soul, it may be time to discover which subpersonality needs to be heard to evolve. When you gain their cooperation, they will transform from resisting your goals to helping you achieve them.
