Forty Day Magic Challenge — Three Archetypal Wounds that Block Wonderment

Day 32: A state of wonder is your natural state. But hidden wounds can be road blocks on the path of magic.

I’ve had a lot of psychology training. I did an undergraduate degree in psychology and started on a graduate studies path years later in transpersonal psychology. You name it, I’ve tried it. From sub-personality work to shadow work to family constellation work. I’ve done it all.

And yet, even after a profound spiritual awakening that blasted into oblivion almost all suffering and even after all of the psychological house cleaning, I still can identify karmic wound patterns in my life.

The difference between pre and post awakening, is that pre-shift I suffered from these wounds. Post, I simply observe them. And these wounds when they do engender a reaction now and then, are seen with compassion and non-attachment.

Think of how a toddler will have a tantrum over not getting the candy bar at a grocery store check out line. To the toddler, this denial of a desire is catastrophic. The tears just flow with the frustration and sadness. But the adult can witness this outburst with compassion. That is how the infinite self sees the upsets experienced by suffering finite self—with the same motherly acceptance and love.

That is your goal here. Over the next week you will engage in discovery of your wound patterns with the loving heart of a mother. This will not be a baggage check, where we muck around in our wounds in ways that deepen their groove. Instead, we will lighten the load by clear-seeing and rapid clearing.

Today, I am going to just name the three universal human wounds identified by Dr. Mario Martinez in his work on bio-cognition.

They are:

  1. Abandonment
  2. Betrayal
  3. Shame

Each of these wounds has an antidote:

  1. Commitment
  2. Loyalty
  3. Honor

Assignment: Look through your life story again as fairytale and see if you recognize which of these wounds is the primary wound that your story revolves around. Usually we can see it immediately. But if you can’t ask a close friend or trusted family member to identify the wound they see in you most predominately. And most often, it began in childhood and repeated as a pattern life long.

Over the next three days, we will address each of these wounds individually with specific clearing exercises. The key today is to identify which of the three is your most active and wonder-disruptive wounding pattern.
