Have you ever wondered why you have a real connection with some people, products and ideas and just don't have it with others?
We all have universal patterns of behaviour that influence the way we live our life, that draw certain things to us and away from us. But how conscious are you of these patterns and why you are using them in the first place? How are they affecting your life?
Do you ask yourself questions like ...
'What is my purpose in life?' … OR
‘What is holding me back from ………….? OR
'How can I change what is happening in my life?' …
Do you feel stuck, frustrated and unsure … wondering whether you are living a life that truly fits. Perhaps feeling unfulfilled like there is a gap ... something missing.
This questioning and need for answers about our life often occurs after we have experienced a trauma, grief, major set-back or inner conflict about our life that leaves us extremely confused. We begin to look for new direction and a deeper understanding of what our purpose is in this lifetime.
Take a moment to imagine what your life would be like if you had a manual to guide you. A manual that helped you understand yourself, family, partners, children, your friends, work mates, bosses … why they are in your life and why some move on from your life. Imagine having a tool to get you back on track when you become confused, overwhelmed or stressed and your energy levels plummet.
Psychologist Carl Jung, originally developed the concept of archetypes and according to his findings, it is archetypes that provide the foundation of our personality, our drives, feelings, beliefs, motivations and actions. The key to Jung's theory was 'An archetype can be: ... a collectively-inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., that is universally present, in individual psyches'.
Archetypes are universal patterns of behaviour that, once we develop a conscious connection with them, help us to better understand ourselves and our place in the world, regardless of our culture or the time period in which we were born. We cannot communicate through the collective unconscious, but we develop an understanding and recognition of the same ideas innately, including the energy patterns of archetypes.
We are all born with a life purpose to fulfil but without a manual to guide us … or so we think. When we take the time to look through the lens of archetypes to fully understand our personal archetypes, that are with us from the moment that we are born, we find the manual of our true self and the tool to give us direction for our life purpose.
The Benefits of knowing YOUR Archetypes:
Knowing your archetypes and how they affect every aspect of your life helps you to stay authentic to yourself. When a crisis happens in your life ... a relationship ends, loss of your job, a death of someone close, an illness, your world feels like it is shattering around you. Through archetype awareness, you have the ability to see why this is happening and how you have been suffering because you have not been connected to your archetypal path. When you connect with your unique archetypes they become your friends for life, your sign posts for direction, your intuitive connection alerting you to listen and they empower you to live the life you are destined to live.
Looking through the lens of my Archetypes: A brief insight into my experience.
"It was during a very overwhelming time in my life that I connected with my archetypal plan that helped me get back on track. I had returned to study with the plan to work within the area of social welfare, however, I seemed to be facing continual blocks to achieving this. What was going on? I thought I was heading in the right direction, my future mapped out. The inner conflict and frustration was draining my energy and pulling me down. Something had to give ... I needed to take another direction but how? I felt very confused, even detached, from what I was supposed to be doing.
As you may have experienced, when you are feeling really overwhelmed and down in life, it is not so easy to move your focus and be aware of new opportunities that may be sitting right in front of you. Several years before I had been in a similar space in my marriage, which I chose to end. I knew I was not being true to myself, the detached feelings I was experiencing were indicating that I needed to find what my purpose was in this life. Now, even though I was heading in a new direction and had it all planned out, I felt like I was back there again. I kept saying to myself 'here I am again, stuck with no direction, I should be doing better than this'.
Jungian psychology and the power of archetypes, grew to be a passion for me when I was studying and when my path crossed with the work of Caroline Myss, who is all about archetypes, I started to see the big picture. Studying her archetypal insights and learning about my individual patterns that I was running my life by, was the break through for me. This exploration of my real self opened me to new awareness, new courage, set me in a new direction and gave me the tool to help me find that something I felt I was supposed to be doing.
This tool changed the way I was communicating to myself. Through my Saboteur archetype, that is guiding the area of my communication, I began to see the 'confused shoulds' that I was telling myself. My friend the Saboteur was reflecting that it was time to take charge and be guided by my intuition, to what I needed to do. I needed to stop sabotaging myself in the way I was communicating to myself ie: "here I am again, stuck with no direction, I should be doing better than this". I needed to express myself with clear and concise direction. By looking at this one pattern, I began to make the changes to empower myself and express my will positively.
Fast forward sixteen years, my archetype manual is still open, albeit memorised, for constant reference to keep me on track. I know my Victim is guiding my sense of self-esteem, my Artist is expressing my creativity and my Peacemaker is guiding my spiritual growth. Whenever I feel challenges stirring in my life, I take a little time to look at what I am doing through my archetypal patterns and consciously do the work that guides me to the understanding of what has created the challenge and what I need to do to change.
It is amazing how powerful this tool has been in reflecting my patterns and lessons to help me stay on track with my direction and purpose in life".

I now know exactly what I need to do and what drives me.
The program has changed my life personally and how I am in my business". Tony
“Marg has helped me enormously over a period of time when I had to deal with extremely distressing and traumatic events in my life. Marg’s highly intuitive and deep understanding of the patterns, energies and behaviours that shape people’s lives and interactions with others, has been an absolutely vital support for me as I worked towards re-creating my life in ways that are more authentic and self-sustaining. Marg’s empathetic and deeply respectful ways of working are highly effective and very much to be recommended”.
"My original purpose for participating in the Archetype personal development program was to help me find ways to reduce the intensity of my stress levels that were affecting both my work and personal life. I found the therapies included in this program to be very thought provoking and helped me develop a new perspective. The experience was really nurturing for me. I felt comfortable enough to share deep issues from within ... something I haven't done before".
