Sacred Soul Forgotten

1. Paradise bounty
her sweet innocence and youth
unaware of fate

2. A purple flower
scents of violets and mead
echo through her soul

3. His mouth an apple
his kiss an ethereal dream
encircled she’s his

4. Eyes appear that see
a crime of forbidden love
rage and fury flames

5. Hearts torn asunder
banishment they both depart
disgraced gates open

6. Under starry sky
the four rivers of her heart
drowns out the sorrow

7. Float on ocean’s waves
her heart now seeks a new home
broken but hope breathes

8. Muted horizon
she finds a land of plenty
but hell becomes home

9. Gazing out to sea
serenading memories
waves against the shore

10. The wings of a bird
soaring high in the heavens
he seeks what she lost

11. Ancient endearment
of the star-crossed love gone by
its light now fading

12. Wildmen in forests
Herne the hunter seeks her
in sacred marriage

13. A new clan inland
the past is fading away
the apple haunts her

14. A woman’s soul crushed
in a land of warring men
fragile yet divine

15. Waterfalls in mist
she falls to her knees and prays
begging for the light

16. Woodwose hunted down
the crown removed from nature
roses overgrown

17. The secret garden
where seeds of truth lies dormant
fenced off from the world

18. Sacred feminine
close your eyes and hear her name
carried on the wind

I got curious about Myers-Briggs/Jung personality types.  Result #INFJ

The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The MBTI was constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. It is based on the typological theory proposed by Carl Jung who had speculated that there are four principal psychological functions by which humans experience the world – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking – and that one of these four functions is dominant for a person most of the time.

“The underlying assumption of the MBTI is that we all have specific preferences in the way we construe our experiences, and these preferences underlie our interests, needs, values, and motivation.”

The four scales used in the MBTI have some correlation with four of the Big Five personality traits, which are a more commonly accepted framework.

Katharine Cook Briggs began her research into personality in 1917. Upon meeting her future son-in-law, she observed marked differences between his personality and that of other family members. Briggs embarked on a project of reading biographies and subsequently developed a typology wherein she proposed four temperaments: meditative (or thoughtful), spontaneous, executive, and social.

After the English translation of Jung’s book Psychological Types was published in 1923 (first published in German in 1921), she recognised that Jung’s theory was similar to, but went far beyond, her own. Briggs’s four types were later identified as corresponding to the Is, EPs, ETJs and EFJs. Her first publications were two articles describing Jung’s theory, in the journal New Republic in 1926 (“Meet Yourself Using the Personality Paint Box”) and 1928 (“Up From Barbarism”). After extensively studying the work of Jung, they turned their interest in human behaviour into efforts to turn the theory of psychological types to practical use.

Jung’s typology theories postulated a sequence of four cognitive functions (thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuition), each having one of two polar orientations (extraversion or introversion), giving a total of eight dominant functions. The MBTI is based on these eight hypothetical functions, although with some differences in expression from Jung’s model (see Differences from Jung below). While the Jungian model offers empirical evidence for the first 3 dichotomies, it is unclear whether the Briggs had evidence for the J-P preference.

The words below made me smile. I get told this about my playlists all the time by my family. I brought headphones to save them. It’s thinking music. Thought provoking. A blend of feeling and realness.  Now, housework requires a different tempo altogether.  ;o)
