Authentic Archetypes & Adopted Archetypes
The Living Attributes© system is a body of work that has many components. But its fundamental foundations are its configuration of a persons four main archetypes, which are referred to as Cornerstones. Each Cornerstone along with its traditional archetypes also has a set of affiliated support, such as light and shadow attributes, animal wisdom, ancestors and angels. This affiliated support is there to strengthen and give substance to your archetypical patterning. Once identified and established this light-filled system gives you an effective tool that aids you on your path of personal and spiritual development.
Before you are able to fully embrace your four cornerstone archetypes, you may have to let go of some adopted archetypes. You adopted these specific archetypes for reasons that are attached to your past. These adopted archetypes have devotedly been protecting a particular part of you that you haven’t been ready to consciously reveal. These adopted archetypes play out particular behaviors in your life and eventually become what appear to be destructive, negative or helpless scenarios. What is really occurring is that your adopted archetype are insistently letting you know it is time for completion and integration; making way for your authentic archetypes.
The insightful process of releasing your past through the acknowledgement of adopted archetypes, aids in your personal evolution and gracefully helps you wake up to a new and deeper reality. This valuable discovery invokes the feelings and thoughts such as; “there must be something more to my life than this”? This type of reflective inquiry is when you begin the powerful journey into your authentic self, and it is your adopted archetypes that actually led you to this inquiry. Their function is to invoke and awaken in you your four authentic archetypes, which ultimately make up the perfect configuration of your highest and most sacred archetype, which is your worldly archetype; your Avatar.
The key factor in the discovery of your adopted archetypes is not to make them wrong. After all they have been doing their best to keep you somewhat safe, until you can confidently go deeper into your self-development and claim your authentic archetypes, which are appropriate to this life-time.
So I encourage you to view your life as a story line, one that has different chapters and characters, which all add to creating an interesting and exciting story; your larger story. It is very important to see the significance of each chapter and character… and why they were a crucial part in the narrative development of your own personal story. It is only then that you begin to live your life from a conscious viewpoint, eager to live your life fully and never wanting to miss a moment of this incredible story you are co-creating and sharing with the world.
