A Different Look at the Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol has long been a classic holiday tale, but what many readers may not know is that it contains a full version of Charles Dickens’ beloved story, complete with beautiful illustrations by John Leech in black and white and color.
The story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly man full of bitterness and resentment, is a timeless tale that has resonated with readers for generations.
What is particularly unique about this version of A Christmas Carol, however, is its focus on helping the reader understand the intimate link between Scrooge’s childhood PTSD abandonment/abuse and his adult need to process these traumas in order to reclaim his True Self.
Through the help of FOUR spirit guides (including Marley), Scrooge embarks on a “dark night of the soul” hero’s journey in which he eventually learns how his past affects his present and future, and that nothing will change in his life until he changes himself.
The story of Scrooge provides a Jungian Collective Unconscious archetypal template to help readers explore their own personal struggles and journey to self-discovery.
As Scrooge undergoes his journey of transformation, readers can experience the change in him firsthand and witness his spiritualization—moving beyond living out of his animal self and into his Higher Angels self (Lincoln).
Ultimately, A Christmas Carol is a timeless story of the triumph of the human spirit—and a reminder that through courageously facing our fears and traumas, we can all reclaim our True Selves.
