How many of you have heard of the story/concept of Chiron? The Centaur from Greece.

"The myth of Chiron tells the story of

how the centaur was wounded by an arrow from Heracles bow.
Chiron does not die; instead, he suffers excruciating pain for
the rest of his life. It was because of his wound that Chiron became
known as a legendary healer in ancient Greece."

Only recently was I given and name/face for this phenomenon that Iknew was why my life is always so much more dramatic than any of those around me.

But...can we become healers if we have not been wounded? It would seem that most healers have experienced great pain and suffering and are here to help others release their pain and create balance. The 'wounds' - of many lifetimes need to heal.... This is the spiritual pulse of the world grid.

But what happens when the Wounded Healer is healed and has had enough drama with healing? It is then they are shown the truth behind the illusion of reality.

Who is The Wounded Healer? Many articles and books have been written about 'The Wounded Healer.' It is the person who has gone through suffering, sometimes great, and as a result of that process has become a source of great wisdom, healing power and inspiration for others. In fact, the archetypal wounded healer undergoes a transformation as a result of their wound, their suffering and pain. They can actually transcend it, and successfully lead themselves to a path of service. It is as if the wound itself helps you drive yourself to an inner journey that becomes the transformation itself. One strips away the selfish, ego-based feeling of being all alone in our wound and expands to see others and how if one chooses a different role, one can help.

The Wounded Healer is often the Victim - He who must suffer the wounds of life to understand. Do you set yourself up to be a victim?

What do you think? Are we all this way to become the healers? I feel we are. I think we're on our way too ;)

I actually know all this, but the concept I was trying to convey remains. I also encourage others to always do research.Too many people join these groups/communities as dependent victims, and they never do any research of their own.One person responded to a discussion about book sharing. What happened to radical self-reliance?

I read somewhere that of all the atlantis created forms the centaurs were deemed worthy to carry a soul. So if one decided to aid mankind by becoming a healer, so much the better.

Ah! Yes thank you! Very great perspective. You're right, but I DID (sorry, no italics on phone) include a link to the Carl Jung PDF where the author discusses the history of the term etc. Should I move that to the top you think?
