The Heroine’s journey by Maureen Murdock

The Hero’s journey by Joseph Campbell


Are things changing? Melanie Joy talks about how things change when we heal the Inner Mother and start living the life we want. She describes feminine and masculine archetypes, these energies we have in our bodies and that, in most cases, keep us from thriving because we are using them incorrectly.


We can tell our stories by who we are and not by programming. Bringing that subconscious programming to a conscious level to respond from that perspective, knowing what was past history, so you can do things differently. On the other hand, working with masculine and feminine archetypes help us understand how we are shaped to start changing our narrative. 


Our hero/heroine’s journey is not fixed, and it varies according to each person. In a patriarchal society it seems to be organic, and then we find lots of people not knowing who they are because they get lost in that programming. Healing The Mother within us, by giving her the place she has in ourselves, knowing what she presents to help us find who we are and what we want to experience in life. 


All the energies live in us, we need to get them all together consciously to become “whole” again. Cultivate the Inner Mother within us, the Mother Earth and the Great Cosmic Mother above us to heal the Inner Mother’s wound to find where your passion, your work lies.


Key Takeaways

  • Tap into your inner self
  • Find balance between feminine and masculine within ourselves
  • We need to heal The Mother
  • Stop, look and listen to start connecting with yourself
  • Root down to nature.
