Even though most of us can identify with physical families, not many realize that there are psychic families. They are family representations on a higher level-- specific groups that have an in-built focus or purpose. The focus may be political, religious, humanitarian, artistic, sexual, etc. Some of these psychic families tend to incarnate into specific time periods and physical races in order that they may express themselves more fully.
Within the structure of the main psychic families, certain sub-families also exist. Some souls may even join other families. The primary families and their functions are as follows:
Parenthood. The survival of the species through production of strong physical and mental offspring by being natural "earth parents." They tend to be widely distributed in cultures with fairly stable political situations.
Organizers, founding new social systems, particularly after revolutionary or significant social changes. These individuals can be found in government, giant businesses, religions, fraternities and schools. However they do not initiate the ideas behind these structures.
This group primarily deals with interchange of ideas, products, social and political concepts. They travel widely to mix these concepts and as such may be explorers, merchants, soldiers, missionaries and sailors. This adventurous nature is found everywhere, even in pirates, slaves, diplomats, archaeologists and even salespeople. While some members of this group served as initiators for new orders (the Jesuits for example), they generally have a keen eye for commerce and wealth.
These individuals direct their energy in an inward fashion, and many are mystics, being true innocents and quite spiritual. They often appear underdeveloped intellectually by so-called recognized standards because they do not direct their intellect to a physical focus. They often choose a culture that has a slow pace of life, and are content with a more repetitive kind of work.
A traditionalist type who likes to pass on knowledge to others. These individuals often stand between the organizers (Gramada) and the artistic types (Sumari, see below), as they can transmit original concepts without altering it through various social structures. Teachers and historians belong well in this group.
The Sumari provides for the ongoing cultural, spiritual and artistic heritage for the physical species. Their empathy with many forms of life, and a mystical connection with nature, allows for a creative expression in their work. Accordingly, they are often artists, writers, musicians, inventors, etc. As with the Borledim they tend to incarnate into cultures (within specific time periods) that have a fairly stable political situation, where they can express their creative abilities more effectively.
The primary focus here is with healing, but not necessarily confined to our general perception of healing. Their work may be more long term oriented that affects areas of land or assists a certain species unknowingly. They can even be mechanics or assembly line workers. They can be found as doctors, nurses, psychics, artists, social workers, psychologists, gardeners, and even some members of royal families.
These are primarily reformers, desiring to change the status quo. They have precognitive abilities that drive them to bring into reality certain ideas or concepts. They generally work in any field of endeavor, often appearing as impractical dreamers.
This group serves as physical or athletic models, transmitting their energy through physical art or performance. They often reveal the latent or unrealized capacity of the flesh, as in the martial arts, acrobatics, ballet, etc. They often appeared at the beginnings of civilizations, where physical dexterity within the environment was of significant importance.
The sum of these psychic families intermesh to form compliment and conflict, acting to provide experience through events in this world of contrast.
It should be noted that these interpretations represent a very basic outline of each characteristic. Within each family, a variety of contradictory characteristics may appear. One Sumari may be extrovert, while the other introvert. Some may feel uncomfortable with friendship, while others seek intense relationships.
