The Wounded Child Archetype Essence Drops help to:
- guide us to compassion and a path of service
- forgive the source of the wound (ie parents)
- move past self-pity
The Wounded Child Archetype holds the memories of the abuse, neglect, and other traumas that were endured during childhood.
These painful experiences often awaken a deep sense of compassion and a desire to find a path of service aimed at helping other wounded children.
From a spiritual perspective, a wounded childhood cracks open the learning path of forgiveness. The shadow aspect may manifest as an abiding sense of self-pity, a tendency to blame your parents for your current shortcomings and to resist moving on through forgiveness.
Resonating with the Wounded Child suggests that you credit the painful and abusive experiences of your childhood with having a substantial influence on your adult life. Many people blame their Wounded Child, for instance, for all their subsequent dysfunctional relationships.
