Custodians: A Journey to Wholeness
by Vincent McMahon
Custodians is an invitation and a call to action to become custodians of ourselves and of the Earth.
We are driven by psychological behaviour patterns in our unconscious called Roles and Archetypes. Psychologists say we are 90% unconscious and only 10% conscious, which means our Roles and Archetypes have a lot of power over us.
I thought they were an ‘interesting concept’ until I discovered they drove my life and also my dad’s life. I had inherited many of these behavioural patterns. I lived the psychological role of ‘Provider’ where I worked excessively to provide for everyone. Yes, it is perfectly okay to provide for people, but when we are in a Role, we do more than is necessary because we don’t feel good enough and we are using the Role in order to feel better about ourselves.
These Roles are unconscious and they stop us from receiving any energy back for all the work and the hours we put in. We become tired, frustrated or resentful, and for all our ‘doing’, we often feel empty inside or not good enough. And as a result we consume: food, drugs, technology, shoes, clothes, books etc.
This is problematic because everything we consume comes from the earth. We try to fill the hole inside us by carving / mining / digging a hole in the earth for the resources to create the things we consume.
When we feel Connected, Worthy and Loved, our Archetypes and Roles cease to have power over us, we become Custodians of ourselves, and in turn when we consume less we become custodians of the Earth.
During our time together we will:
• Delve into the world of Roles and Archetypes using the map of The Four Quarters which explains your inner Queen / King, Warrior, Lover and Magician.
• See how science and nature demonstrates to us that we live in an interconnected world and an interconnected galaxy.
• Learn how nature loves us and the earth in practical ways.
• Understand why we are worthy of this love.
• Discover how the earth bounces back really quickly if we give her time to take a healing breath.
• Experience connection and love through a guided mediation.
It is my intention that you will leave feeling joyful, abundant and empowered as a custodian.
