Welcome to a new addition of The Source!
Archetypes are inner states of information, energy, and awareness that are sleeping inside us. By awakening them, we summon the divine power of the Universe in finding our next gear.
Archetypes exist in the collective domain of the unmanifest and are available to each of us at any time through the Sacred Power of Passion. They exist as a god or goddess curled up inside you waiting to be born. And they can take the form or shape of whatever it is we are trying to summon.
Simply pick a trait and think of someone over the course of your life who embodies it.
Compassion? The Dalai Lama.
Standing your ground? Rosa Parks.
Stepping into your power? Wonder Woman. (Yes. Superheroes and She-roes are brilliant archetypes.)
You can choose an element in nature such as the sun or the wind; someone in your life who has embodied these traits; an inspirational figure; or a famous being in history you admire.
Once we are clear on who they are, we can trigger our archetypes in any moment and awaken them simply by planting the seeds of our intentions and desires in that radiating inner sun of our manipura. If we practice this process of awakening the divine on a regular basis, we get more skilled at it and the archetypal energies we summon start flowing through us more consistently.
Ultimately, the creativity of Michelangelo is effortlessly flowing through you; Wonder Woman is riding shotgun; and Rosa Parks is sitting right next to you in the front seat of the bus.
These are just a few of my archetypes; but your life is unique and you have your own personal gods and goddesses sleeping inside. So let’s awaken them by reflecting on this core question:
“What trait, skill set, or divine quality will I need to awaken from inside to shift my life from where it is to where I want it to be?”
Take a moment and let the answer bubble up. This requires honesty and your willingness to shine a bright light on all the shadowy areas of your life. Through honest reflection, you will be able to see what you need and what you don’t have right now. This is where you get to awaken your sleeping god or goddess to help you: break out of being stuck, find your next gear, and step into your passion.
When we awaken the divine to support us in taking our next step, then we are not leaping into the void by ourselves. We are fully empowered. This is how we move from simply having good intentions to full-on manifestation. Read the question below, and reply with your archetype.
Who is the archetype that you call on when you:

Who is the archetype you can call on to help you awaken the top three characteristics, core traits, skill sets, or strengths that will best move you through the challenge you wrote down when you were breaking through the clouds?
Your archetypes are flowing, so let’s make your list of the top 10 traits you’d like to awaken and the archetype who embodies them. Write them down on a “My Sacred Archetypes” list, and read the list a few times throughout the day.
