Humanitarian Healer

By Melissa Shaw & Georgette Star

“Meet the Archetypes” is an invocation and imaginative journey through the “9 Pathways of the Soul” dedicated to supporting your “being and becoming”.

Every human being is on a life-long journey to learn and evolve skills and capacities along each one of these nine distinct archetypal pathways of human development.

The affirmation statements below are meant to call forth greater awareness of Pathway (9) the “HUMANITARIAN HEALER” in you.

The more you fully integrate and functionally utilize the gifts and powers of each of these realms of development, the easier it will become to meet the demands of everyday life and more fully actualize your radiant soul potential!

I knew from a young age that my journey through life would be one of helping others know their own worth and empowering them to share their gifts with the world.

I am your daughter or son who never fails to amaze you with the depth, breadth, and action oriented expression of my compassion and empathy for the poor and vulnerable.

I am one of the multitudes of medical staff who know it is my calling to volunteer my time, energy, and skill in disease and poverty stricken countries.

I love you unconditionally, share your joys and sorrows, absorb your pain, make you laugh, and do my best to heal the world one person (or family) at a time.

I am the 1st responder in a disaster (firefighter, paramedic, police officer…), who willingly and knowingly puts my life on the line to save the lives of countless others.

I am the consummate movie goer, completely fascinated and enthralled by the stories of humanities’ beauty and suffering, told through the art of the actor, the eye of the director, the lens of the cinematographer, the emotion of the music, and the countless hours of devotion from the multitudes of those behind the scenes.

I march proudly and bravely with you and so many others who know that it is our time, our right, our responsibility, and our privilege to speak out against injustice, prejudice, and hate.

I know I will be heartbroken if you don’t make it through your cancer treatment, but I still choose to be your Chemo Pal®. Making a difference in your young life, makes all the difference in mine.

My soul’s fulfillment is to be your guide, mentor, inspiration, and teacher in how to make the world a more peaceful and more loving place.
