How God can use the Enneagram to speak to your heart Episode #7
with Mica Kucera
What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram, it’s a tool! Many Christians are weary of the Enneagram, thinking it’s some mystic evil thing. My guest today Mica Kucera debunks this misconception! She just finished writing a book that combines the wisdom of the Enneagram, pressure points and essential oils to help you process and understand your emotions and who God made you to be!
The Enneagram is just a tool you can use to help understand yourself and others better. It points out your strengths and weaknesses which rather than boxing you in encourages you to grow in the areas you are weak and shine in those areas of strength.
There are 9 main personality types:
- The Reformer
- The Helper
- The Performer
- The Individualist
- The Investigator
- The Loyalist
- The Enthusiast
- The Challenger
- The Peacemaker
Rather than figure out what you do, you figure out why you do what you do, by understanding your core motivation. You can take Mica’s quiz here
How does the enneagram have anything to do with the Bible?
Well, it wasn’t started by Christians, as far as I know it was monks several hundred years ago. My hubby and I listened to some great Podcasts on the Enneagram. One of them talked about how all the best qualities in each type can be found in Jesus, how we should be aspiring to be the best of all the types. This is why looking at the Enneagram through a Christian lens is so helpful to our walk with Christ!
Rather than saying, “this is how I am, deal with it.” You can say, “wow this is what I struggle with, and God is the only one who can help me grow into becoming more like Him!”.
How does the Enneagram effect how I love my people?
Mica and I talk about how the Enneagram has helped us both in our marriages to better understand our husbands and their motives. This gives you space to have grace and encourage them where they need it! Additionally we chat about how it can help with raising your children and relating to and understanding your friends.
