Unlock the Soul's Code
What are Archetypes and why use it for self development?
What are Archetypes? You absolutely know you have a certain way about you. You have a certain way of speaking, acting, feeling and behaving. You may even at one time sang to Lady Gaga’s lyrics, “baby, I was born this way”! Archetypes gives you the image or name of your pattern of behaviors and emotions. For example, if you identify as being a mother, teacher, healer, you are using archetypes. This website lists Archetypal patterns for your reference as you reflect on your Soul Journey.
Usefulness: The goal is to offer you an understanding of archetypal patterns activated inside of you. Archetypes are neutral energetic patterns offering you wisdom of its light and shadow tendencies. When you learn the wisdom of these patterns and how each approach situations in life, you understand more about yourself and others.
If you ever feel stuck, Archetypes offer you a point of view. When faced with a problem, you can refer to archetypal patterns to see if there’s a different way of looking through your situation that will lead to the answers you seek. The archetypes listed here are through the work of Caroline Myss, Sacred Contract. She has identified 72 archetypes and offers a brief discription in her website: www.myss.com. Unlock the Soul’s Code is a relatively a new site abd I will be adding my reflections on Archetypal patterns every month.
