The three selves (3S) is related to models of the psyche you mayalready know:
- Freud's model of the psyche: id, ego, superego,- Transactional Analysis' model of child, parent, adult,The 3S model makes the above models make much more sense; also,the synergy they have together becomes obvious.For many reasons, some given below, mainstream 20th century science,education and psychology gave the 21st century very little in terms of amodel of the healthy whole person. These had to come from thefringes, off the beaten path, from the holistically inclined folks.
The Three Selves Model
Our high self is our Intuition, our Guardian Angel, our connection withhigher spiritual Benefactors on an as-needed basisOur conscious self is our rational mind--either thinking or feeling. Thisis the one who pays the bills, picks red socks over blue socks in themorning.Our basic self is our inner child, our habit body, our reactive self, theoperating system of the human psyche. This is the one who holdstogether our memories, habits and routine behaviors into one wholeperson. Our lower self is also our immune system, subconscious,etheric body, and the Little Artist of The Artist's Way. These are allfunctionally equal in that, from the conscious self's point of view, eachand all are contacted in the same way.By the way, our yak-yak mind, the "monkey mind," is real, it's betweenthe conscious and basic self. It can be more towards the rational mind,where we experience it more as "self-talk" and can hear the words, hearthe negative messages we give ourself. Or it can be lower in frequency,towards the inner child, where the words themselves will be moreobscure and the feelings will predominate.
What each self does uniquely
The b/s is the most active self here in 3DQ: If the “basic self” is so basic, why haven’t I heard of it before?
