When I was training as a Gestalt therapist, we did a visualization once, in which we were to explore our 'inner house of being.' In the attic we were to meet with our primordial ancestors. I remember having a fright when I 'saw' a wrinkled old woman with long, silvery hair and eyes glowing like coals. The therapist who was training us, said to me : "Yoú are scared of your own strength." For what it's worth...I'm not scared anymore.
