Are Your Inner “People” Communicating?

Throughout my life, I have never been able to keep a job for longer than around two years. I’ve always moved from house to house, country to country, people to people, project to project. I have always struggled with stability.

Upon reflection, there are two reasons for this, the first being boredom. I get bored very quickly, hoping that the next thing will be more fulfilling than my current situation.

The second reason for this is I am always looking for the next thing in the hopes of finding happiness, joy, contentment.

The reality is that unless I do the uncomfortable work, the shadow work, then I will always be looking for happiness in the external world, not within.

The penny dropped last night in a magical coaching session I had, and I will try and explain as best possible. We have many different archetypes within us; personality’s if that’s easier. They are all there to protect us in some kind of way, even if they are problematic, they are all there for a reason.

The three main ones are the warrior, the nurturer and the nomad. The warrior wants to go out in the world and hunt for opportunities. The nurturer isn’t interested in this. They are content in their own world, they love routine and want to stay home, having little or no interest in leaving their home town. Finally, it’s me, the Nomad, the traveller, the one that is easily bored and always wanting the next thing, knowing that there is more to life.

We all have parts of these archetypes within us. However, if they are not in communication with one another and one is more dominant than the other, it will be a struggle, for example, a nomad to commit to something long term… Making sense?

I invite you to reflect upon this. Are there areas in your life where you’re stuck? You feel like no matter what you do, nothing is moving. Perhaps this is resonating? Think which archetype is overpowering another. It might not be any of these. It could be that you’re don’t have boundaries and are allowing people to walk over you. Speak to the archetype that you need more of and less of and ask them to communicate.
