I really love the characters and stories that unfold in my work as a spiritual counsellor. From a psychology perspective, the characters could be thought of as archetypes; universal characters that are familiar the world over, who keep popping up throughout history and in story-telling. Archetypes are personality patterns, essentially, or frequency states in the aura. Each character explored during a healing has a transpersonal, intrapersonal and interpersonal facet.
The transpersonal is the spiritual, larger-than-life realm, so this is where we frame a character as a spirit guide; an intangible character/energy that is giving you spiritual guidance.
On the intrapersonal level (intra meaning ‘within’ the self), the character represents an inner self; some part of your personality that the spirit guide is reflecting, enhancing or representing.
On the interpersonal level (the realm of human relationships), the archetype may also be playing itself out in the world around you, popping up as a character in the screenplay of your life.
