Why do we make the decisions we make? Where do those decisions actually come from?
With a little less than a week to the next E-Salon, I'd like to start a conversation about Sacred Archetypes, what they are and how they unveil truths about our relationship and compulsions with money, freedom, soul maturation and your highest potential.
Archetypes are universal patterns that derive from the collective conscious and unconscious. In Jungian psychology, archetypes guide us deeper into the age old question, "Who am I?"
Have you ever heard yourself say "Ugh, story of my life!" or ask "Why does this keep happening?" There are archetypal forces at play that you may not be aware of.
I used to think that awareness was 50% of the battle won and the other 50% is the 'doing' (implementing the mindset and behavior change that emerged from the newfound awareness. Now I know that awareness is 90% of the battle won and the other 10% is the 'doing'.
WHAT IF THE PROSTITUTE ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'GOOD FORTUNE' HOUSE?
The Prostitute is the archetype that gives something of tremendous value in exchange for something of small value.
Knowing this, how would you earn money differently? How would you spend it differently? How could the powers of the Prostitute archetype improve your financial situation?
WHAT IF THE DESTROYER ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'HOME + PASSION' HOUSE?
The Destroyer is the archetype that is skilled at ending things in order to make space for new things to grow.
Have you moved homes a lot? Have you lived in many different countries? Have you taken on hobbies/passions that seemingly have nothing to do with each other? Often this combination reveals the true gifts of a destroyer: being nimble at letting go (of relationships, possessions, etc.)
WHAT IF THE REBEL ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'PERSONALITY' HOUSE?
The Rebel is the archetype that does not conform and that challenges the status quo or social norm.
Have you felt like you're always going against the grain or swimming upstream all alone? Have you unleashed your truth and got terrible backlash for it? Often this combination reveals the core wound of non-conformity for it to be healed, for it to then inspire others to rise as rebels too.
WHAT IF THE HERMIT ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'HIGHEST POTENTIAL' HOUSE?
The Hermit is the archetype that enjoys withdrawing into the richness of their inner world and/or the wonderland of their upper chakras.
Do you feel pummelled by the cultural conditioning that you have to "get out there, put yourself out there!!!" Does the mere idea of networking make you want to vomit? Often this combination reveals the necessity to go inward, in solitude and silence even, in order to attain your highest potential.
WHAT IF THE VICTIM ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'SELF-EXPRESSION' HOUSE?
The Victim is the archetype that believes they are a character in a play rather than the powerful writer/director of the play.
Have you waited until resentment boiled over before you articulated your thoughts/feelings? Do people avoid you or walk on eggshells around you, feeling like you might explode again? Often this combination reveals how you need to change in order to get what you need / want.
WHAT IF THE DAMSEL ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'CREATIVITY' HOUSE?
The Damsel is the archetype that inspires romance and self-reliance, while dreaming at the same time of the Knight on White Horse to rescue her.
Have you felt like entrepreneurship, no matter what you try, just isn't working out for you? Do you feel isolated like no one can help you? Often this combination reveals how important it is for a Damsel to plug into an existing network rather than freelance and market on her own.
WHAT IF THE HERO/HEROINE ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'PERSONALITY' HOUSE?
The Hero/Heroine is the archetype that is compelled to embark on journey(s) of self-empowerment, even at the price of being ostracized.
Have you felt like your entire life is a giant test followed by smaller, but unrelenting tests? Do you find yourself building a home / community then leaving it... again? Often this combination reveals the painful but necessary nature of a quest.
WHAT IF THE DETECTIVE ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'CREATIVITY + GOOD FORTUNE' HOUSE?
The Detective is the archetype that seeks truth and understanding of the truth, even if at the expense of a few white lies.
Are you a multi-potentialite or hummingbird who can't just do one thing for the rest of your life? Often this combination reveals that prosperity won't come from being a doctor for 25 years or a speaker for 15 years. Novelty and diversity are the keys to unlock your good fortune.
WHAT IF THE LIBERATOR ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'SPIRITUALITY' HOUSE?
The Liberator is the archetype that darts for self-liberation such that their being and life example inspires and liberates others.
Do you live and breath freedom and travel, but find your corporate clients soul dimming or soul starving? Often this combination reveals what is needed to quench soul thirst. It doesn't mean you have to ditch your corporate clients, it simply implies a shift.
WHAT IF THE SEEKER ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'LIFE VALUES' HOUSE?
The Seeker is the archetype that is driven by curiosity and with maturity becomes driven by oneness, by the urge to know the 'why' of Life.
Is your life very full of people, chaos, adventures, unexpected events? Do people gravitate toward you for hope and comfort? Often this combination reveals the agony of always seeking but rarely finding and calls you forth to re-assess your metrics for success. And that is a good thing!
WHAT IF THE OVERACHIEVER ARCHETYPE WAS IN YOUR 'INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP' HOUSE?
The Overachiever is the archetype that strives and can achieve anything they set their mind to, driven by the hope of external love or validation.
Have your intimate partners felt like little kids you had to raise? Have your close relationships, even family, felt like burdens you had to carry? Often this combination reveals the urgency to stop doing all the heavy lifting to keep a relationship alive / interesting.
