“Archetypes are universal patterns of behavior that, once discovered, help us better understand ourselves and our place in the world around us. In short, knowing your archetypes can transform your life.” - Caroline  Myss, author of Sacred Contracts and Archetypes: Who Are You?

The term "archetype" has its origins in ancient Greek: archein, "original or old" + typos, "pattern, model or type".

The combined meaning is an "original pattern" of which all other similar persons, objects, or concepts are derived, copied, modeled, or emulated.   Carl Gustav Jung used the concept of archetype in his theory of the human psyche. He believed that universal, mythic characters—archetypes—reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over.

Archetypes represent fundamental human motifs of our experience as we evolved; consequentially, they evoke deep emotions.

Working with the Self-Empowering Wheel

You see there are 6 archetypes and the emotions they show and they hide: The Victim; The Aggressor; The Rescuer; The Self-Accountable; The Responsible; The Centered. We all navigate within them. There are no negative or positive aspects, we use them with regards to the state of resourcefulness we are in at a certain moment. We unconsciously choose one or another because we are conditioned to believe that it will take us where we want to go. The truth is that we not always choose the most empowering ones (Self-Accountable, Responsible, Centered).  

The beauty of the path of awareness is that you can clearly see, recognize and choose your archetype at every moment. In your relationships, you start recognizing the archetypes in others, being now able to help or guide them into new positive situations.  The practice is simple and requires commitment to self-observation (be gentle, no criticism or judging, you are in the process of learning about yourself): start paying attention to your reactions and energies during the day: Which archetype are you using? To step out of a certain state, embody the polarity and find a more resourceful state throughout your day and in different situations.  You can also write in your journal the attributes that each of these archetypes has in you and for you :  How do I use them?  What do I get from them?  Does that make me feel empowered or disempowered?
How could I step into the 3 self-empowering archetypes more often?
