MAGICAL POWERS AND CO-DEPENDENCY
There are multiple directions of development a human must experience for True Mastery.
Deep into the feminine, deeply into the masculine. Widely into the feminine, widely into to the masculine. Lengthwise into the masculine, Lengthwise into the feminine.
Mastering any one area will unlock latent abilities. Skillsets that seem to miraculously appear overnight.
And so, like any ‘rational’ being, we would assume we are doing something ‘right’. And so we continue with what works. Even if it doesn’t necessarily improve our lives, or our relating, or our consistency (yesterday I was playing with a new ability to instigate insect sounds by affecting the magnetics – it can be easy to become enamored with our new toys)
The real issue here is that if we don’t evolve in a truly well rounded way – we remain stuck in co-dependent consciousness.
Many people do not identify as co-dependent so I’ll provide my definition for this. Co-dependent consciousness is the capacity for experiencing chronic inner conflict, confusion, depression, anxiety, self-sabotage…any state of consciousness which gets hung up on one specific emotion. Our identity has in some way learned to become dependent on that emotion for a sense of familiarity.
So…if we develop superpowers, and yet aspects of us remain unevolved in co-dependence, we can become severely out of balance and delusional. It takes great courage to experience the normalized layers of disempowerment.
Everyone is ready for a shift at some level. It takes some sniffing around to discover which aspect they are ready to grow through.
This means that ‘healers’ can help, so long as someone is willing to heal within their specific zones of experience and competence. A healer who is not well-rounded will not be effective for everyone. A healer who is well rounded can be effective for virtually everyone.
The healer-savior complex specifically arises out of unresolved co-dependency alongside the potentially amazing powers that the healer also possesses.
For many, this raises the question of whether a healer ‘should’ or ‘should not’ be utilizing their abilities before resolving the savior dynamic.
The question seems relevant, but in truth, it’s a moralistic paradigm based on shame driven belief systems. If someone is equipped to help and they want to help, why not?
Ideally, they would fully own their savior dynamic and make their motivations crystal clear. “Being a healer helps me to feel powerful – this is part of my journey because I’m learning to trust my ability to manipulate after being told it’s wrong for so many years”. This isn’t to say they should throw themselves under the bus and sabotage a healing session, simply to own the underlying motive.
In truth, most ‘wayshowers’, ‘coaches’, ‘healers’ are using these roles and labels as a platform in which to anchor their individuation. To feel helpful, to make an impact, to do good in the world because they literally cannot think of anything else to do. This is a phase, and those who allow further evolution will spring beyond these labels into more specific vibrations of their soul’s calling.
Just to be crystal clear, being a healer/coach/shaman is not the highest available role for the vast majority who identify as such. It is most often a stepping stone into true realization, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
For me personally, when my ‘healer’ abilities reached mastery level I instantly realized there are higher callings beyond.
Mastery in one area is an indicator of novice in another. One journey ends, the next begins. We integrate skills together and combine our first paradigm and second paradigm into a brand new combined third paradigm so rich in its simplicity we could never have imagined it.
Here’s to the birthing of an entirely new chapter. Honor where you are a master. Honor where you are a novice. The sweetness of this Truth is the everlasting fulfillment we always have access to.
