Just downloaded Carolyn Myss’s The Language of Archetypes as my holiday listening. I love Carolyn because she is so direct and in your face, no bullshit for this woman. I have seen her twice over the years, I have come away transformed each time. One of them was the Sacred Contracts workshop where I learned the 12 archetypes that affect each of us. Our power systems. Here’s a link to her wisdom: Carolyn’s home page.
Let’s go on the journey of how archetypes have affected our society and matured it:
1. We grow up with fairly basic archetypes but what if your calling is to be extraordinary. These archetypes won’t get you there.
2. Did you know Keanu was born in Beirut, Lebanon. I’m not sure what this means. Perhaps this Youtube clip explains it: In the Mirror.
3. All my artistic friends live by this koan. They clearly know their dominant archetype.
4. We are all on the path of discovery, here’s how it relates to the universe: Love Yourself.
5. When you discover your primary archetype will you follow it, it’s your choice to do so.
6. Your archetypes are your moments of magic when the stars light up for you. Are you ready to follow the stars: It’s magic.
7. We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We know are archetypes and are trying to live through them.
8. When you do the work, do all of it, this is what Carl is pointing to here: Heart Touching.
9. Carolyn points out there are twelve dominant archetypes but our makeups are all unique.
10. Meeting your archetypes will not be easy, the treasure awaits on the battlefield: Imagine Dragons.
11. How do you locate your archetypes, here’s one way.
12. Another way to reveal them is through new material and situations daily in your life: Whats New Pussycat.
13. Stephen William Hawking, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA; born 8 January 1942) is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. His scientific works include a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set forth a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He is a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. Not a lot of archetypical mixes like Stephen, methinks.
14. Everything you truly are, your Sacred Contract: take it on: Who You Really Are.
15. Says it all really!!
I hope you are enjoying your journey with your sacred archetypes, I certainly am.
Namaste until next time, my dear friends.
