“The formation of the ego is dependent on the environment in which we grow up. We are all part of tribes—groups of people with shared beliefs and values. Some of these are recognized by our Souls as helpful.
However, some of these beliefs and values feel absolutely wrong. But we have to fit in to survive. And if we don’t fit in, we risk being shamed, abandoned, or betrayed. These three wounds are, according to the research of neuropsychologist Mario Martinez, the three primal wounds that all tribes all over the world use to punish their members who stray outside the tribal belief systems.
If a tribal belief runs counter to what your Soul knows to be true, then living this lie in order to fit into your tribe further overstimulates your nervous system, adding power to your ego’s beliefs about the world.”
Excerpt From: Christiane Northrup, M.D. “Making Life Easy.” Hay House,
ANITA JOYCE SKOCZ is a storyteller who resides in Central Florida. She credits her passion to her father, who dazzled her imagination as a child with his gift to weaver a tale. After a diving accident in 1978, Anita left the travel industry to journey the inner roads of her soul. The riches found on those adventures inward come to life in her children’s books.
Anita’s books, “Crystal Star Angel” and “Kite Tale,” were inspired by the loving relationships her father had with his grandsons.
From Where I Sit is a blog where Anita shares her life’s stories, or comments on current events from her soul’s perspective. Her insights can evoke laughter as well as take one on a reflective journey. In any case she hopes you join her each Wednesday for a new adventure.
