The world is changing and things are shifting at a rapid rate. The universe is experiencing tremendous growth as we move into higher states of consciousness and the old destructive masculine systems are collapsing as the divine feminine is returning. This is truly a wonderful time to be here and there is so much to experience, learn and connect with as we collectively experience this spiritual expansion.
As with all cycles of change, there is a letting go process that must fully happen in order to welcome in the new. For many, this step will be challenging as we
shift collectively and are forced to let go of old paradigms and anything not in alignment with this new energy. For some people, this process will challenge you to the core of your being and you’ll feel as if you don’t know how to “be” anymore. If you’re unwilling to take a leap of faith and trust what the universe has in store for you, you may find yourself indulging in old familiar identities, roles and personas and clinging to them.
I’ve been observing that many people are identifying with one of these energetic archetypes called Victim. I believe this is happening due to intense personal fear, confusion and not knowing how to exist during these times.
Let’s take a look at the victim archetype and how this energy behaves and expresses. Here’s a general description:
Why would someone exit in this state or choose to slip back into it? For many people this is familiar and comfortable so the idea of trying something else puts them in great resistance. This unhealthy energy tells you that you don’t have to take any personal responsibility and accountability. You say to yourself that your unhappiness is the world’s fault and you’re a victim of essentially anything negative in your life. Victimhood is an excuse to not participate in your personal growth and a way to duck responsibility. You carry around a belief that things happen to you and you are simply an innocent bystander in the whole situation. Your husband cheated on you because he’s an awful person. You got fired because your boss is a mean and unfair person, etc.
Suffering occurs in this state because victims believe all choices have been taken away from them and their fate is completely outside of their control. There is a major lack of empowerment with this energetic state as the victim is totally reliant on external things such as a partner, family, or group of people, and disconnected from their inner core of feelings.
When you hand over the reins to something or someone else, then you potentially invite more negativity and continue to swirl in your victimhood energy. There’s an initial comfort with this archetype, just like when you put on your favorite shoes. Aaaah…they fit perfectly and look great and over time they conform to your feet and feel amazing. After some time has passed, those shoes become worn, stretched out and outdated and it’s time to be brave and toss them out and replace with a new pair that suits you now. For the victim type, this may be very difficult to do. They may do many things to try and make those shoes work until they are forced to buy new ones.
The good news is there is hope for those with an attachment to being a victim. You can change, take back your personal power, and create the life you want. Here are some ideas on ways to pull yourself out of this unhealthy state of being and move into a healthy one.
