Archetypes are the architects of our lives.
Every experience that we have contains purpose and meaning. Each event, each person in our lives embodies an energetic fragment of our own psyche and soul.
Learning to read the archetypal patterns that influence your energy is the natural complement to working with the energy of the chakras.
The energy that surrounds you, which is created by the chakras, contains all the data of your biology and your biography, so it makes sense that this energy would manifest in patterns of archetypes that affect your life.
It stands to reason that the further we stray from our true mission in life, the more frustrated we will become, and the more out of sync our energy will be.
By coming to know your mission, you can live your life in a way that makes the best use of your energy.
When you are working well with your energy, you are also making the best expression of your personal power. I call this living in accord with your Sacred Contract.
By developing symbolic sight and archetypal language, you will grasp the whole of your life with a level of spiritual clarity that can heal the emotional and spiritual wounds you have accumulated.
In a sense, each archetype represents a 'face' and 'function' of the Divine that manifests within each of us individually
Archetypal patterns awaken in us our own divine potential. They can
liberate us from the limitations of our thoughts and feelings.
Archetypes can help us shed light on the dark or little-known corners of our souls and amplify our own brilliance and strengths.
Archetypes are a source of emotional, physical and spiritual power and can help us free ourselves from fear, although sometimes, when we first get to know them, a few of them may initially unleash fears within us.
Our spiritual challenge with any archetype - or fear - is to face it and recognize the opportunity it presents to learn its inherent lesson and develop an aspect of personal power.
With an archetype that we perceive as difficult or even malevolent, our task is to acknowledge it, overcome whatever weakness it indicates, and work to make its divine potential our own.

a skill—a skill based in self-esteem.
By far the strongest poison to the human spirit is the inability to
forgive oneself or another person. Forgiveness is no longer an option
but a necessity for healing.
Do you really want to look back on your life and see how wonderful
it could have been had you not been afraid to live it?

After mystical awakening, you continue your external life, but on the inside you are awakened, fearless, conscious, a resource for others.
All depression arises out of feelings of dis-empowerment.
All good lies in perseverance. -Teresa of Avila
All spiritual masters show us that it is possible to simply learn how to love--without a reason, without a person.
All things are possible, and heaven is always listening.
An empowered sense of self can also develop in stages, over the course of our lives, in a series of mini-initiations.
And trusting that, one day, when the time becomes appropriate, the meaning will be revealed.
Another way of recognizing it is to observe the way your respond to a crisis.

Identify your wounds--have they become a form of 'wound power' in your life?
If you are at all interested in following the case or taking action: dailykos.com/story/2011/09/…
If you determine that your depression is spiritual, a solution is to "let go and let God," as the saying goes.
If you have a giving soul, then give. If you don't, then learn.
If you have converted your wounds into power, confront why you might fear healing.
If you have the inspiration, you have the talent.
If you react by asking yourself how you will will cope with the issue with physical responses (finding a new job, new spouse, ect) --
If, however, you respond by questioning the meaning of life, or why God seems so distant from you, you are likely in a spiritual crisis.
Illness can also offer the safety of not having to confront your inner issues or engage yourself.
In an epiphany or awakening, the priorities of your inner perceptions are reordered to perceive the presence of the Divine within your life.
In every situation, no matter how challenging, you have the option to pursue the meaning behind the event.
In many spiritual myths heaven contacts the person who has faith and the directs that person by providing "manna from heaven."

Insecurities about our daily survival are located in the lower chakras.
Insisting that the external environment meet certain conditions before you are to become internally focused is itself a distraction.
Intuitive ability is present in everyone because it is a survival skill-- not a spiritual intention.
It compels us to form external relationships to resolve these polarities.
It makes no sense to seek to become intuitively conscious, then work to keep that consciousness from upsetting our lives.
It may have its roots in a chemical imbalance or a traumatic life change--anything from a divorce or the loss of a loved one to illness.
It takes great courage to look for God, it takes even more courage to find God.
It's one thing to understand intellectually the steps you need to take to heal.
It's quite another to understand what you need to do on an emotional level.
Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.
