12 Powers On Screen and In Us
A contemporary of Carl Jung, whose work inspired Joseph Campbell and the concept of "The Hero’s Journey," Charles Fillmore studied all the major religions of the world and came up with 12 abilities or “powers” that each of us has within us: Faith, Strength, Wisdom, Love, Mastery, Imagination, Understanding, Will, Order, Zeal, Release and Life. Each one has a color and part of the body associated with it.
Unlike Jung, who came up with archetypes that are familiar throughout all myths and legends, Fillmore used his idea of the ultimate superhero in The Bible as an example – Jesus—and the powers represented by his 12 disciples. We’re using them all the time, but when we really harness and coordinate their positive potential, we become the superheroes in our own life stories!
