Our Misperceived Self... refers to who we believe [at a fully non-conscious level of awareness] ourselves to be, or more precisely, who our MIND believes our core to be. Each one of us has, buried deeply within the MIND realm, an intensely negative body of energy that I refer to as the NS-I, or Negative Self-Image. Freud labeled this same body the "Id", and he believed that it represented a permanent negative core of the human being. It is not one's core, nor is it permanent.
It is, in fact a collection of childhood traumata, taken on by each person in earliest childhood. Each trauma is a misperception whose "memory" is kept by a dissociated bit of Apapsyche....which adopts the vibrational identity of the experience [fear, pain, terror, etc] and is repressed by one's MIND in the NS-I. Unfortunately for us, but perfect for our Fate Karma, whose job it is to facilitate the experiencing of such emotions, the MIND cannot perceive the Apapsyche, and only perceives the emotion of the experience...taken on from one's parent(s). The MIND misperceives that it is one's unknown core that has "caused" the emotional energy taken on from one's parent(s). This misperception becomes the "monster" each of us believes our core to be. The more traumata one's NS-I has, the more likely is one to have a negative self-image... and not know the reason.
Those children who act out negativity are very often simply "venting" some of their own misperceived energy. Each reprimand reinforces their misperception, and these cases need specialized intervention. Those capable of addressing the MIND of the child are very rare indeed....because so very few mental health professionals today have any idea what the MIND is, or how to deal with it.
