Example text

She could trust that the maternal­therapeutic vessel could deal with the garbage.  Suddenly a stag appears and leads me to a clearing.  It may have merely uncovered what was there all along.  Meditation on the image conveyed to her a sense of the transpersonal receptacle of garbage.  It relieves the ego of the collective and archetypal shadow burden that had prevented its development.  This realization can release potent, healing affect and a sense of the all­too­human community of individuals.

The experience of actual and symbolic holding also permits the pre­ego to learn to suffer and enjoy its own experiences in a strong vessel; they can then be assimilated at phase­appropriate levels.  The child may then experience debilitating disruptions in its sense of continuous identity.  They have usually had a problem with bonding and feeling securely held from the earliest weeks, because of the poor psychological "fit" with the parental figure.  As an adult she continued to equate psychological pain with feeling rejected and inferior.

Being caught in the scapegoat complex affects 1) perception and consciousness, that is, how one sees and forms experience; 2) the ability to contain and endure suffering; 3) one's capacity for self­assertion; and 4) the capacity for need gratification.  Scapegoat­identified individuals have particular kinds of experience in each modality, depending on the combinations of the complex and their own talents and sensitivities. Distortions of Perception We see the basics of perceptual patterning in the early awakening of the senses and the experiences which stimulate them within a range of tolerable comfort.
