Your blog is interesting. We had an event happen or I guess a couple of things which makes me wonder what mirror I’m putting out. My two characters in this dialogue will be Tiger for me as Soul, a child of God who loves herself. Mouse will be the other side who feels she has to hold on to straws and settle for whatever enters her life.
First the back story:
My husband and I are both blind. Therefore, we do depend on friends to help us. We have someone who we have known for many years who often has helped us do atm transactions, read mail with personal information, has picked up stuff for us and used our debit card to do so. We pay for the gas we use, and often allow him to buy meals.
Last month sometime we got one of those mailers which offers a loan for an lump some of money. Then you have to pay it back within a specified time period.
This loan came in my husband’s name. It is very remotely possible that it could have been taken out of the mailbox by a stranger. Whoever did this knew my husband’s Social Security, and all the other pertinent information needed for the form. On the 22nd of last month a check from this loan company was cashed. Our account number was on the back. In my thinking this was planned. Since the loan check was sent out in March and it wasn’t cashed until April. He put his phone number instead of ours and it was cashed at a branch which we never go to.
We went into the loan company and they said as long as we file a police report we won’t be held liable for the payments. They said they’ve been trying to call his number to welcome him to the program after he cashed the check but he doesn’t acknowledge their calls. If he had put our phone number then nothing could be traced back to him.
This really smarts since in many ways he’s a likeable guy and my husband and he have worked on a number of projects together.
Tiger: “I love myself and deserve to be valued. I know I need help with stuff because of my disability yet I am worthwhile enough to have people around me who want to be friends and understand there are times when I’ll or we’ll need extra assistance. My willingness to share meals and a listening ear is worth the trade.”
Mouse: “You know he has made many poor choices in most of his life so you shouldn’t be surprised. Besides, you really need him to run errands for you. Besides, everybody since they are Soul needs unconditional love.”
“I’m not a door matt. I don’t have to settle forsome who uses my husband’s identity to get money he doesn’t have any intention of paying back. It was a blessing from God that I found the statement saying how much the payments were for. We were able to start the process before it went against his credit.”
“You should just pay for the loan because you need his help. You can’t afford to make people angry at you.”
Tiger: “It’s not about whether we make him mad or not. It’s about what the truth is.
The truth is if he didn’t do this then all of us need to know who did to protect all of our identities.
Is it necessary? Yes, I value myself and my husband and we shouldn’t pay for somebody else’s stupidity. I trust the Holy Spirit to help us solve this situation with as little baggage as possible.
Mouse: “No one will help you if you turn him into the police for fraud. They would all be afraid you’d make up something and do the same to them.”
Tiger: “You are a child of God and worth joy and happiness.I trust my spiritual guide; the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master is always with me. He looks out for me as long as I remain a loving soul.”
Dear Gail: I notice that in your Archetype Dialogue, Tiger speaks first as well as last, suggesting this is the stronger viewpoint.
Tiger can be an ELDER LEADER or a WARRIOR archetype.
Mouse, in all its “mousey” aspect, can be a Shadow IDEALIST or a Shadow NURTURER archetype. By Shadow I mean this is the “negative” or “weaker” mode of these two archetypes. Of course, a mouse could also be a Mighty Mouse! But yours seems more timid than that.
How can you integrate these two? It is possible to be strong and assertive yet also kind. (I saw a bumper sticker on a car today that said: “Be Kinder than you need to be!” Perhaps this was a waking dream.) The fact that these archetypal aspects express themselves in opposition here suggests to me that if you combine their energies, you can go forward as the loving Soul you are while not allowing others to take advantage of you.
Enabling a Thief (also a Shadowy archetype, a DESCENDER) not only allows them to get away with perpetrating on innocent people but lets them think they can get away with this again, affecting others and possibly you again, if you continue to utilize his ‘help’. For them to learn their lesson in this lifetime–to confront the karmic results they have reaped–may require for you, or someone eventually, to confront them with this fraudulent aspect of their own nature. How else can they learn, and how else can you be true to yourself? Your inner dialogue may represent two aspects of your inner guidance, as well! Two images of Soul, or a Master and chela interaction?- Linda
Would others like to reply to Gail, too?
