Archetypes are multi-dimensional patterns, or blueprints, that give us a way to identify – and understand – key aspects of a personally trait or role we and others play. They were first defined by Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung but have been around as long as humans have been telling stories. The beauty of archetypes is that they are able to relay meaning despite time, culture, or locale; the messages and images they convey are nearly universal and timeless.
When we identify our own personal archetypal patterns, we’re touching into the magnetic guiding principles that play major roles in our lives, not only consciously, but also unconsciously. In this way, they provide us with a profound way to work another Jungian concept – our Shadow. This is because archetypes are multidimensional; they have a “light” aspect, which often displays when we’re acting consciously, as well as a “shadow” aspect, which appears when we’re acting unconsciously, particularly if we feel threatened, stressed, or uncared for.
Schedule Your Archetypal Consultation
When you book an archetypal consulting session, the first thing thing we do is identify which eight patterns you feel prominently in your chart. The choice is yours! I merely assist at this point by clarifying the archetypes themselves. Once you’ve made your selections, I work your twelve total archetypes – the eight you selected plus the four survival archetypes we all share – into your Chart of Origin™. This chart gives insight on how each archetype presents in various aspects of your life, including strengths to leverage and challenges to watch out for. At this point, we’ll schedule a 1-hour online session together so that I can explain to you how each of your archetypes shows up in your life. Additionally, you’ll receive a detailed written analysis of your chart, so that you can refer to it time and again.
