Self-Awareness Tools

Grounded Relating promotes human compassion through these self-awareness tools:

 The Psyche Cards

Who knows what YOU want and need? WHO actually knows that? Of course, it is YOU who knows that. Temporarily, you may have just forgotten, or perhaps are clouded by external stimuli. The Psyche Cards can help trigger or open the flow of your intuitive memory and knowing. Remember what you already know about yourself with the help of these unique, interpretively open-ended and archetypal set of images designed to unlock the mental portal of your own empowering wisdom, which is actually already–and always–available to you.

The Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicator (MBTI)

Carl Gustav Jung began researching the principles associated with the Myers-Briggs (MBTI) personality assessment system in the 1920s. A mother daughter team, Myers and Briggs, continued the research to present times. The Myers-Briggs (MBTI) assessment tool provides a really fascinating look at your essential personality and how different “types” can perceive the same situation in entirely different ways. Learn the language of the personality habits you already know, but can’t name. Naming is power!

The Five Love Languages

What is your preferred Love Language? Is it Quality Time or Words of Affirmation? It could be Gifts or Physical Touch. Acts of Service is another of the Five Love Languages. You might be surprised how knowing your own Love Language can make your life and emotions easier to manage. Learn about the Five Love Languages and then you’ll be able to give the relationships of your life the kind of “love” they need to bloom and prosper.

The Enneagram of Personality

According to George Ivanovich Gurdjieff, the mysteries of the world could be understood through the Enneagram’s 9-number diagram. A little like a set of nested Russian dolls, the Enneagram unpacks by a set of three Centers of Intelligence in increasing orders of complexity. It’s a robust symbolic system that will clarify and intensify what you know about yourself, as well as reveal a lot about yourself you didn’t know, or had forgotten. Read more about the universal Enneagram symbol itself, or check out our Grounded Relating Resources page for book titles and other web links.

What is the Grounded Relating process?

The Grounded Relating process is about rolling up your sleeves, and getting dirty in your own work and growth process. We deal in the nit and the grit, and the difficult little personality habits most people won’t talk about, and don’t want to own they have.

Tools like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), The Psyche Cards, the Enneagram, and the Five Love Languages can help you hone your own self-awareness.

What’s the actual process? It all starts with a conversation together, where you talk about yourself, your goals, your stuck places, or your difficult personality habits. Then, together we would choose how to proceed, using the Myers-Briggs (MBTI), the Five Love Languages, The Psyche Cards or an Enneagram assessment, whichever you feel the most drawn to or desire to work with first.
