The Soul Journey
You were born with a unique constellation of archetypes; this is what I call your soul.

The origin and growth of your ego is created out of an imprint of your parental ego(s) in relationship to your environment. Like cell division around the age of 3 or so, your ego separated from your soul and began to run your life by tossing things that threatened its survival in your environment into your shadow. I call this the Mythic Journey because your ego develops along ancient mythic patterns.
