Coming together as one world is a gift the World Cup gives us once every 4 years, but we can carry this unity forward even when the competition is over. Once again I am struck with how when the world comes together with intention how connection can prevail and relationships can grow. International sports events like the World Cup or the Olympics bring a real opportunity to plug in to and participate on an archetypal level.
In honor of welcoming Spring and for those of you who are in the Puget Sound Area, I am giving my 8th Chakra-Walking the Archetypal Path workshop in North Bend on two consecutive Thursday evenings, April 24th and May 1st, from 6-8pm. Follow the registration information on the attached flier.
Referred by colleagues in the healing arts, prospective clients often contact me without really knowing what an intuitive counselor can do for them. Struggling with health concerns, depression, anxiety, or detachment from their everyday lives, few of them realize that their symptoms may be a call for them to access the deep inner self. I have found that each individual is rich in symbolic language. Just as we collectively interpret a red light to mean, ‘Stop!’ any form of discomfort can be a sign from our spirit to cease regular activity. A headache or a panic attack may be an urgent message, just as important to one’s safety and wellbeing as a stop sign. What is the message? That’s to be determined.
***Please take a moment to look at the Archetypal Analysis that I offer.***
As an Intuitive Counselor, it is my job to provide my clients with tools and an environment for them to explore how their symbolic or archetypal landscapes translate into something they can understand and use to make their lives more efficient and full of meaning. I do this in many ways. The main tenant I work by is that I give validity to the symbolic and credence to the unseen and un-rational. Some of the tools I use are those I mentioned above. I offer my clients an Archetypal Analysis which consists of using Archetypes intuitively chosen that are ‘thrown’ onto the Astrological wheel of houses. This tool was developed by Caroline Myss and is described in her book Sacred Contracts. The interpretation of this evaluation is a spring board for a deepening into the self and we can follow up with regular visits to enhance the process using conversation, goal setting, and Hellerwork which is a process model that uses structural bodywork, movement and awareness education. It is imperative to include all the systems of the self when exploring the world of the archetypes. Caroline Myss has a saying that has always resonated with me, “Your biography becomes your biology”. It is my experience that any work we do on the Physical translates in some way to the Mental, Emotional or Spiritual and visa versa; in any order. The process is enhanced 100 fold when we acknowledge all of the self.
