Getting Started Challenge – Heroine Story
Healing Super Powers.
Where would the heroine be without her super powers? Remember the Heroes journey. In the modern Hero story super human, supernatural and paranormal traits are always needed to solve the problem our hero (oine) sets off on her adventure to solve. Think Super Woman, but the true Hero story is a journey that any of us can set off on.
My heroine: Facing her fears she overcomes huge obstacles, gains more wisdom and develops the power that she didn’t even know she had. Obtaining the prize she ventures home to share the new wisdom.
I grew up loving the heroes’ journey stories and longed to gain intuitive healing powers. Reflecting on my journey I see that it does fit the heroines journey. I just need to add the part where the heroine gets lost in the desert for several years and forgets she had any powers at all.
Whilst still at high school I had a curious mind that loved biology experiments and researching health problems that people like my grandmother had. I challenged what the doctor had told her and after doing his own research he agreed with me. I loved being open to things outside of the square leading to alternative treatments for problems western medicine had no answers to.
For todays blog challenge I will skip to the part of the journey where the heroine has met some tests, meets some friends and faces some enemies. She develops her super powers.
As a young adult I delved into the deep states of Theta meditations where I took counsel from spirit guides. In my sleep I experienced significant dreams and Astral Travel. Using the power of trance I walked on hot coals and sent turbo powered messages across a room. One of the most instantly gratifying was relieving pain with touch and the power of the mind.
And like our mythically stories these powers are tested and she faces extreme danger, possibly life threatening that zap her of vitality. She wanders through deserts and gets caught up in the dominant stories of the times. Finally, when there is no light at the end of the tunnel the universe gives her another opportunity, this time developing powers that will assist her to help others on their healing journeys as part of the Great Transition to a Living Universe story where everything is revealed to be connected.
Deep listening, being present and calming the amygdala in the brain bring clarity and deep understanding of possibilities. I get things quickly and can see both sides of stories and have insight into what someone is saying when the other person is not ‘getting them’. These powers were gifted to me long ago but Mindfulness training has sharpened the skills. I have developed Mindsight, the capacity to perceive the mind of the self and others. This gives me the ability to understand my inner life with more clarity, integrate the brain, and enhance relationships with others.
And the good news from this hero story is that I am ready to ride the bull back into the city, to bring home the elixir and share it with you. Because, with the super power of Mindfulness and Mindsight you can heal yourself to. Not sure if Mindfulness is a super power? Check out the cartoon video below.
