1. The Outer Layer
The outer layer of the map details the main aspects of your personality type and shows you the specific values around which this is built. The aim of working with this layer of the map is to recognise these personality traits and consider how they have become a trap, giving you a mask to hide behind and limiting your ability to live all that you are.
2. The Second Layers
The second layer of the map is subdivided into two. The outermost layer shows the beliefs you hold about yourself. These beliefs justify your behaviours and are very deeply held. The innermost layer shows the typical self-doubts you have that rob you of connection with your soul. The aim of working with this layer of the map is to explore your thinking and understand how it has resulted in patterns of closure, denying you access to the wisdom and energy of your soul.
3. The Third Layer
The third layer of the map shows the primary needs of all types (acknowledgement, attention, and assurance). The aim of working with this layer of the map is to recognise your individual needs, trapped emotions and hidden fears so that you are no longer held back and enslaved by them.
4. The Centre Space
The fourth layer, or centre space, of the map, represents your soul, or your soul signature. The aim of working with this layer of the map is to connect and liberate your soul so that it becomes the starting point for all that you do.
The Structure of your Soul Map
Like any map, your map is first and foremost a tool to show you the journey of where you are now and where you want to be. Designed to be used alongside your creative journaling in a practice called the R.E.S.T. Practice it makes the invisible visible, by showing you the patterns of acting, thinking and feeling that stop you from making connection with your soul and living life to the fullest.
