Are you familiar with Inanna's descent into the underworld? My Jungian professor said her story is the original heroine's journey. It emphasizes compassion and wholeness.

awesome post.

I know this is from a while ago, but still:

While Amulet's message of embracing the external power seems initially degrading, the narrative continues to push towards Emily using her own power and NOT the amulet's. The amulet (particularly in the second volume) becomes a sort of antithesis to Emily's true power. There's a point where Emily has to choose between using her own powers or that of the amulet, and the amulet is clearly painted negatively.

Just sayin'.
