Hello Spiritual Warriors, and welcome to this week’s edition of The Source in which we explore the idea of invoking archetypes and how they can help us on our journey to be the best version of ourselves.
It’s often said that we are not human beings having the occasional spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having this unique human experience . If we can envision an archetype of us that is growing, trying to be better, learning from our missteps. . . a personification that is successful, happy, empowered, compassionate, whole, pure, and peaceful . . . an embodiment of ourselves that spontaneously says and does the perfect thing at the perfect moment . . . that’s our spiritual self.
Spirituality is simply the journey we each take from our current version of ourselves to our most divine version—our most self- actualized version—where we touch perfection, glimpse clarity, bask in brilliance, and receive deep insights. But it’s not a one-way voyage—it’s a round-trip experience; we get to integrate the best version of ourselves back into our day-to-day life and incorporate these transformational life lessons into our thoughts, words, and actions.
That’s where archetypes come in. When you are just about to leap into change, a new relationship, or a new job, for example, sometimes we can feel like we don’t have the energy or confidence or courage to go the distance. Sometimes it’s a little voice in our head telling us we can’t do it; sometimes it’s a person in our life shaking their head or smirking; and sometimes it’s the circumstances that seem so daunting, over-whelming, or over-powering. When we realize that we don’t have what it takes in the critical moment – that’s when can begin awakening archetypes!
Archetypes are states of information, energy and awareness that rest sleeping inside us. By awakening archetypes, we summon the power to find our next gear. Archetypes exist in the collective domain of the unmanifest and are available to each of us at any time. They exist as a god or goddess in embryo waiting to be born. And they can take the form or shape of whatever it is we are trying to summon.
We are awakening archetypes when we simply plant the seeds of our intentions & desires. If we do it on a regular basis, we get more skilled at it and the archetypal energies we summon start flowing to us more consistently.
So this week, make your list of your top ten archetypes for moving you through your life, and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep meditating, and I’ll see you in the GAP!!!
