ARE YOU TRACKING TWISTERS? The reckless charm of creating tornados in our lives.

How can understanding the symbolic power of twisters help us navigate and transform the chaotic forces in our lives with resilience and wisdom?

Where are our lost talents and disowned powers hiding?

PERSONAL SHADOW WORK: Where is your dark twin hiding? Helps us identify parts of ourselves pushed into the unconscious due to conflicts with our family of origin and misalignment with cultural and family norms. We first encounter shadow by projecting it on others. The despicable traits we cannot stand in others point to similar qualities we refuse to acknowledge in ourselves. Self-confrontation and honest introspection can help us say, “I am the one who hides this terrible flaw inside myself. I am the one who rejects my inner da...

Psychodermatology: How Skin Communicates Unconscious Conflicts

How do skin conditions give voice to silent suffering in our souls?

Our skin serves as a canvas for our emotional and psychological states, manifesting internal conflicts through visible conditions. The symbolic meaning behind skin conditions can reveal deep-seated emotional issues.  Self-inflicted lesions highlight an individual's internal turmoil, serving as a cry for help. We all understand how blushing and sweating provide outer clues about our psychological landscape. Skin, a boundary between ego and the external world, exists as a threshold organ where experiences enter us and responses are displayed. Applying Jung’s symbolic attitude to our bod...

IDENTITY CRISIS: When Our Story Falls Apart

IDENTITY CRISIS: When Our Story Falls Apart

How can understanding and reshaping our personal narratives help us navigate and overcome identity crises during major life transitions?

This crisis can be triggered by significant life changes, traumatic events, or conflicting social and cultural pressures, causing our coherent self-narrative to fragment.
