Published

Sacred Feminine Archetypes Image

Archetypes are omnipresent. They are everywhere: within you, within others, and they create the very foundation of human behavior. There’s no doubt that archetypes play an important role in our lives and build our character. Did you know that you can actually work with archetypes to increase self-awareness and boost your spiritual wellbeing? In this article, I want to talk about the sacred feminine archetypes and their importance for divine feminine awakening. You see, the more we develop the qualities of these feminine archetypes and integrate them into our lives, the more nourished and balanced we will feel. Therefore, it is so important to know and understand the fundamental feminine archetypes and how to embody their powerful energy.

What Is a Sacred Feminine Archetype?

In general, archetypes are patterns of behavior that aid and influence our mental, emotional, and spiritual growth as human beings. From a metaphysical perspective, archetypes are types of energy that form the underlying framework of reality. Like many pieces of a puzzle, archetypes are separate and easily definable qualities that compose the Whole.

Thus, sacred feminine archetypes are the highest expressions of feminine energies that women embody. The more we develop the qualities of these feminine archetypes and integrate them into our lives, the more nourished and balanced we will feel.

Jean Shinoda Bolen M.D. wrote in the book “Goddesses in Every Woman: A New Psychology of Women“:

“Once a woman can tune in to the different parts of herself and can listen, observe, or feel her differing priorities and competing loyalties, she can then sort them out and measure their importance to her. She then can make conscious choices: when conflicts arise, she decides what priorities to place above others, and what course of action she will take. As a result, her decisions resolve inner conflicts instead of instigating internal wars.”

11 Sacred Feminine Archetypes

There are many different classifications of the sacred feminine archetypes you can find online. All these different theories can be confusing. Some say there are three or four feminine archetypes, Jungian psychology recognizes at least seven, while some spiritual teachers say there are as many as 13. In this article, I will share with you 11 archetypes that represent 11 types of sacred feminine energy. These archetypes are:

  1. Maiden
  2. Seductress
  3. Mother
  4. Enchantress
  5. Healer
  6. Creatrix
  7. Priestess
  8. Queen
  9. Warrioress
  10. Wild woman
  11. Wise woman

Now, let’s take a deeper look at each of these sacred feminine archetypes and what they represent.

#1: Maiden

Maiden archetype image

This is the first stage of womanhood. When the maiden archetype is dominant in a woman’s psyche, she exudes an effervescent, eternally youthful quality.

The Maiden represents the following qualities:

  • innocence;
  • youthfulness;
  • playfulness;
  • passion;
  • excitement for life;
  • positivity;
  • optimism;
  • empathy;
  • creativity;
  • receptiveness.

The Mature Maiden is creative, compassionate, spiritual, and capable of displaying profound inner strength. She is comfortable in her own skin and not afraid to show the world who she is at heart.

The Maiden phase is usually experienced before a woman discovers her career ambitions or enters marriage and motherhood. This woman is yet to find herself but is enjoying the journey to get there and isn’t afraid to break some rules along the way. This phase is filled with spectacle, positivity, dreams, and boldness.

Maiden represents spring and waxing moon.

The Maiden’s Shadow Side:

In her shadow side, the Maiden:

  • is vulnerable and open to others taking advantage of her;
  • diffident;
  • is irresponsible;
  • can be drawn to risky situations, dangerous relationships, and even abusive men;
  • lacks autonomy;
  • may become compliant or obedient to satisfy her need to please others and be liked;
  • can become emotionally co-dependent in a relationship.

If the Maiden is immature, she is receptive, sexually unawakened, vulnerable, and generally, waiting for life to happen to her.

How to Embody the Maiden Archetype?

  • give your energy creative expression
  • think outside the box
  • set big goals
  • be playful
  • focus on yourself
  • explore your personal boundaries

#2: Seductress

Seductress feminine archetype image

The Seductress is fully connected to her sacred sexuality. She represents a woman’s sexual energy and her capacity for psychic and physical creation. Women with a dominant Seductress archetype feel compelled to fulfill both procreative and creative instincts. On one hand, the Seductress’s energy compels us to mate and pass our genes. But in a broader sense, this life force energy (often referred to as shakti), compels us to channel our feelings of passion into creation – whether that creation is another human being, a deep connection, a work of art, an invention, a creative project, or even the manifestation of a new reality.

The Seductress represents the following qualities:

  • sensuality;
  • sexuality;
  • confidence;
  • passion;
  • independence;
  • deep communication;
  • sexually-oriented;
  • natural magnetism.

Women with a dominant Seductress archetype are intimately connected to creative energy, their own sensuality, passion, and pleasure.

The Seductress craves deep connection and intimacy with others while simultaneously desiring freedom. She is grounded in the present moment. She often becomes the center of attention—which she loves.

When we embody the Seductress archetype, we open ourselves fully to receive pleasure, love, and accept our bodies as they are, and feel confident expressing our sexuality. The Seductress encourages us to create a blissful life filled with joy and pleasure.

The Seductress’s Shadow Side

In her shadow side, the Seductress:

  • can become controlling;
  • is prone to vanity;
  • attracts unnecessary drama into her life;
  • uses her feminine power as a manipulative tool to get what she wants from others;
  • can be vain;
  • may find herself stuck in an unhealthy comparison trap;
  • may have lack of focus;
  • experiences lack of self-love and self-respect;
  • has low self-esteem;
  • may have a distorted image of her physical self.

This archetype represents a woman’s maternal instinct, the desire to create life and to provide physical, mental, and spiritual sustenance. Even when a woman with the Mother archetype is childless, or beyond childbearing years, she is responsible, protective, and finds great satisfaction in taking care of others.

She represents the following qualities:

  • compassion;
  • nurturing;
  • persistence;
  • grounded;
  • safety;
  • desire to protect, nourish, and take care of others;
  • selflessmess;
  • tendency to put others’ needs before her own.

The Mother archetype teaches us to follow our natural rhythms and discover balance in our lives. For embodying this archetype it isn’t necessary to have children. You can take care of others or nurture your creations (art projects, for example). It is the Mother archetype that helps us to get connected to our inner child and heal our younger selves.

This is usually a time where most women work through reclaiming themselves after decades of care for others. This is a powerful transition for every woman. During this phase, many women go through drastic life changes. For example, we often see divorces after 20 years of marriage when women enter this phase. This is the time when bold steps taken by women as an instinctive nature calls them to return to their true selves and recall who they really are deep down.

The Bottom Line

You could have all of these sacred feminine archetypes within you right now, or you could have any combination of them at any time. There are certain feminine archetypes that are more common during specific times of a woman’s life. For instance, when a woman is raising her kids, her primary archetype is likely going to be the Mother. Or, for example, when a woman is running her own business, her dominant archetype is likely going to be the Queen.

But usually, we embody multiple sacred feminine archetypes at once and cycle through them. I hope the above description gives you some clarity of what your dominant archetype is. If you feel attracted to some archetype but you’re lacking its qualities, use the tips above to embody them. For example, if you wish you were more creative, channel your inner Creatrix by embodying her qualities.

As we walk our spiritual path, we can use all of these archetypes for our personal growth and development. By sliding from one archetype to another we become more flexible in life and adjust to any circumstances we find ourselves in.

What Is Ensoulment? Blossoming into Alignment with the Universe

Published

What Is Ensoulment Image

Who are you? Well, many aspects give us identity, including the body, mind, and our affiliations. Moreover, the soul is the innermost essence of our true identity. Since birth, the soul evolves, going through different phases to blossom and arrive at a level of peace and comfort. Yet, trauma or certain events can make us feel out of touch with our soul, going through the motions of life only to survive. Are you having trouble finding your identity? If so, you can connect back to your soul through ensoulment. So, what is ensoulment in the first place? This is a detailed guide.

What is Ensoulment?

Ensoulment refers to the moment at which a human gains a soul. This process can happen in two ways: –

#1: At Conception

Many religious scholars believe that the soul is pre-existing and enters the body at the time of fertilization. Like Aristotle’s time, scholars thought this process took place 40 days after conception for boys and 90 days for girls.

However, this association of ensoulment with the growth of the human embryo still fuels debate supporting or criminalizing abortions globally. And, the idea of a pre-existing soul forms the foundation of beliefs in reincarnation and the afterlife.

#2: When Undergoing a Spiritual Journey

Second, the ensoulment process can happen when you undergo a spiritual awakening, Kundalini awakening, or when in a Dark Night of the Soul. In these circumstances, ensoulment relates to the process of embracing, living, and expressing your authentic self, the soul.

·  Ensoulment during a Spiritual Awakening Process

A spiritual awakening journey is a state of enlightenment where your soul “wakes up” to life, transforming into higher consciousness. The journey begins with a sense of emptiness and confusion, usually triggered by traumatic or life-changing events. This initiation stage leads to a quest for answers about your beliefs or thoughts about life.

Next, you develop an urge to find the answers within you, to discover your life purpose. This third stage can be painful, as you acknowledge your shadow past and deal with it. Still, if you are patient, the fourth stage opens up the joyful and hopeful new you.

Finally, you attain spiritual alignment, the ultimate goal in this journey.

·      Ensoulment during a Kundalini Awakening & the Dark Night of the Soul

Kundalini awakening is an energetic awakening emanating from the spine and flowing through the seven chakras leading to instant spiritual enlightenment. Kundalini, the energy that remains dormant at the base of the spine, can awaken through such methods as yoga, meditation, and mantras.

Once awake, our senses become sharper, our perception of life changes, and we begin to identify our soul paths.

·      Ensoulment during the Dark Night of the Soul

Now, the Dark Night of the Soul is one of the signs of a Kundalini awakening. Here, you feel disconnected from your surrounding as you look inward to discover your soul purpose. For example, you feel lost and stuck and want a deeper meaning in life.

Physical symptoms of this experience include a change of appetite, increased thirst, distorted sleep patterns, and a change in your sex drive. Since the Dark Night of the Soul is a transitional period after shedding our old identity and before the new and true identity emerges, this process leads to ensoulment.

The Phases of Ensoulment

ensoulment image

In this guide, we explore what is ensoulment when undergoing a spiritual journey. By understanding the process, we get to know our identity and soul purpose. If you are currently going through any spiritual journey, you could be in any of the following phases of ensoulment: –

The Stages of Ensoulment

#1: Waking Up

A spiritual awakening process triggers the soul to wake up. Here, you may experience an overwhelming feeling of disconnection or detachment with people or things you once enjoyed. There is confusion as you begin to question your true identity, beliefs, and thought processes.  Likewise, some individuals start to re-evaluate their current beliefs.

#2: Descending into a State of Soullessness/The Dark Night

The symptoms of the Dark Night of the Soul characterize the second stage of ensoulment. It makes us notice and yearn to deal with the shadow aspects of our lives. Only when you integrate these shadow aspects into your life can you then blossom into your true developed soul. Hence, this second stage is the most painful phase of ensoulment.

#3: Spiritual Alchemy

Do you sometimes feel you are living in your past but also connected to your future self? That is a sign you are in the alchemic stage of ensoulment. Here, you feel a sense of transformation, inner freedom, and change that makes you aware of your soul.

Spiritual alchemy happens in seven distinct stages as follows: –

  1. Calcination – a breakdown of distractive personality traits, including our ego, stubbornness, and arrogance. It sets the foundation to discovering our identity underneath.
  2. Dissolution – a feeling of the fading false self.
  3. Separation – sharpening of our thoughts and emotions.
  4. Conjunction – combining of the remaining authentic elements in you.
  5. Fermentation – start of a rebirth.
  6. Distillation – further purification.
  7. Coagulation – spirit manifesting in material form
#4: Blossoming Into Ensoulment

After the spiritual alchemy, you break away from the mind, allowing your soul to connect to the spirit. At this point, your soul is now manifest in material form, allowing you to embrace your true identity.

Note that the four phases of ensoulment develop gradually at different times in our lives. For example, you may be in the Dark Night of the Soul, feeling soullessness as a mother but fully ensouled as a pianist or a teacher. 

More so, in many mystical traditions, age matters. Hence, even though ensoulment can begin in childhood, many people become aware of the process only when they are in their 30s or 40s. At times, they confuse it with menopause or a form of spiritual crisis.

Conclusion

Now that you understand what is ensoulment, I must mention that it is a lifelong journey in the physical whereby our souls evolve, arriving at a level of comfort and peace. At this point, we become aware of our true identity and soul purpose. Then, we begin to live a purposeful life that is in alignment with the universe.

Divine Feminine Awakening: 6 Signs You’re Going Through One

Published

on

divine feminine awakening image

The universe revolves around two polar energies that work to complement each other in harmony. Likewise, humans possess these two powers; feminine and masculine energies. Still, only one of the forces can be dominant at any given time. Do you feel the urge to step into your sacred feminine power? If so, you could be going through a divine feminine awakening. In this quick guide, I share the top signs of a Divine Feminine Awakening. That way, you can recognize arising feminine power and experience the goddess in you.

Let’s get to it!

What Is a Divine Feminine Awakening?

Divine Feminine Awakening refers to a spiritual phase where an individual steps into their full high priestess potential. Here, the Divine Feminine energy, also called Lunar energy, the Greater Yin, or Shakti, starts manifesting in our lives.

It begins following a trigger from a spiritual crisis, past-life recall, childbirth, or any other mystical events happening in our lives.

The Examples

Think of how your compassion for animals is altering your eating choices. Similarly, if you are undergoing a self-discovery journey, it may trigger an urge to fight social injustices in your community. This gradual change of your perspective of life from a preoccupation of power to a nurturing approach indicates your Divine Feminine energy is awakening.

6 Signs of a Divine Feminine Awakening

Priestess sacred feminine archetype image

Do you feel like you are going through a Divine Feminine Awakening? Here are the tell-tale signs to be sure:

#1: An Insatiable Quest for Knowledge about the Divine Feminine Power

Not many people are aware of the concepts of masculine and feminine energies. Still, if your discovery about these two powers creates a yearning for knowledge about the Divine Feminine Energy, you could be going through an awakening.

Here, you find yourself researching, watching videos, and listening to audios that affirm what you already know about your inner feminine power. The attraction and curiosity grow, making you want a deeper connection with this part of you.

#2: Ready to Face Your Shadow Side

Do you have unresolved emotions from a hard childhood, marriage, sickness, or past traumatic experience? If you find yourself more open to discussing the details regarding this rough time, you could be going through a Divine Feminine Awakening.

One of the benefits of going through spiritual growth is by dealing with our shadow emotions. These include feelings of guilt, resentment, shame, or anger due to what you underwent. Besides, without dealing with your dark side, it tends to crop up and distort your life when you least expect it.

#3: Attentive to Your Intuition

Anyone with dominant feminine energy is often an intuitive person. Hence, if you find yourself shifting from rationalizing situations to trusting your gut feelings when making decisions, that is the Divine Feminine Awakening in action. The awakening also helps you trust yourself more. Like if you are a victim of an abusive relationship, you now stop questioning your motivations and begin paying attention to the nudges you get.  

#4: An Urge to Create

The feminine energy brings out the creativity in us. See, you could be thinking deeply about those business ideas, science, or art projects that come to mind every now and then. If you are a woman, you may have a strong urge to get pregnant and start a family.

These are random ideas that you usually ignore.

For example, you feel now is the right time to write your business plan about the recreational park you want to create. Creative feminine energy helps us express ourselves through writing, art, business, or new relationships.

#5: An Unexplained Desire for Deeper Connections with Women

This sign mostly shows up in independent women who now want to form deeper and genuine friendships with other women. They may search for forums that connect like-minded women to pursue common goals or even chit-chat.

#6: Becoming More Sensitive

Are you becoming sensitive to your surrounding? It could be a heightened sensitivity to alcohol, the smell of fabrics, or prescription drugs. Also, you may find yourself internalizing other people’s feelings of sadness, anger, joy, or excitement. Feminine energy makes us empathetic to others. In turn, we may become highly sensitive people (HSP), sometimes to our harm.

Tips on Working with Your Feminine Power

Now, the Divine Feminine Awakening can occur in both males and females. When it does, we should embrace it and attain inner balance. So, do you identify with any of the above signs of a sacred feminine awakening? If so, start working with your feminine power and experience the goddess in you.

These are some actionable tips to get you started: –

#1: Find and work closer with goddesses that resonate with you

Research and identify which goddesses’ energy connects to you. Journalize their attributes and meditate on them.

#2: Use your senses to gain pleasure

Divine Feminine Energy allows us to acknowledge enjoyment. Rely on your five senses to search out satisfaction. For example, be alert to what you see, smell, hear, taste, or feel, taking note of what makes you happy most. In addition, do more of the things that give you pleasure.

#3: Create a paradise around you

Here, you attract the Divine Feminine Energy by making it respond to beautiful or sacred spaces you create with love and intention. Start by de-cluttering your home or workspace. Then, bring in nature elements like healing crystals, potted plants, water fountains, or a window birdbath.

#4: Have a regular grounding and shielding practice

This will help you deal with your heightened sensitivity, ensuring you do not become an emotional sponge.

#5: Pay attention to your body’s wisdom

For example, enroll in dance classes, practice Yoni Mudra, breathe deeply, or listen to positive affirmations. These activities tap into your body’s wisdom so that you can honor it.

#6: Acknowledge your feelings

This practice is especially crucial if you are a man undergoing Divine Feminine Awakening. It helps you cope when surrounded by a community that stereotypes masculinity as the only expression for males.

Conclusion

We all have inner powers that we can use in conjunction with the laws of the universe to transform our lives for the better. If you are going through a Divine Feminine Awakening, tap into this inner power to bring out the empath, creative, intuitive, or nurturing nature in you. These traits help us appreciate nature and live in harmony with it.

8 Signs You’re an Old Soul & What It Really Means

Published

Signs You’re an Old Soul Image

Suppose you didn’t know your current age; how old do you reckon you would be today? If you guessed a number higher than your current age, you could be having an old soul. See, anyone with an old soul behaves too mature for their age. More so, they find their age mates too immature; hence struggle to fit into society. As outsiders looking into life, Old Souls prefer living solitary lives. In turn, society misinterprets this personality as anti-social. So, do you have an old soul? In this article, we discuss the eight signs you’re an old soul:

Becoming an Old Soul

Some Old Souls are born that way, while others grow into it through a spiritual awakening journey. Whatever the case, you have wisdom and a mature outlook on life that indicates your intelligence. This intelligence comes from your past experiences and not from memorizing books. Hence, young persons who are Old Souls are a gift to humanity.

For example, they become better leaders who focus less on material possessions and more on solving societal issues. Plus, they have better intuition that keeps them and those around them from harm’s way.

8 Signs You’re an Old Soul

#1: Empathetic

Empathic Narcissist Image

Old Souls show lots of empathy towards others. Their high sensitivity, open-minded and open-hearted nature makes them emotional sponges. They pick up negative and positive energies from others and own these mixed feelings.

The Old Soul doesn’t think twice when lending a hand to those in need. And they use their wisdom to make other people’s lives better.

#2: Seeing the Bigger Picture

Does philosophy intrigue you? Or, do you question systems in institutions instead of accepting them at face value? An Old Soul has wisdom and a mature outlook on life that indicates their intelligence. This intelligence comes from observing what happens in the world instead of skimming through textbooks in class. Hence, such a person relates what is happening today to its possible impact on the future.

#3: Happiness in Solitude

Old Souls have unique interests, hobbies, and beliefs; different from their peers. More so, these are self-motivated individuals who are creative and original thinkers. They seek quality and not quantity in friendships. Hence, any small talk or group mentality annoys them.

For example, an Old Soul will struggle to stay up to date with friends on social media. Besides, they are direct in expressing their ideas, often seen as being rude. For this reason, an Old Soul prefers to have their own space and spend most time alone recharging their energies.

#4: Deep Thirst for Knowledge

Would you rather keep up with a reality star or spend an hour watching a mystery film? See, Old Souls are intellectuals who are always yearning for wisdom. Even though they never acknowledge that they are smart, they are the kind of people who challenge their knowledge by reading or trying out new things. They prefer factual instead of trendy literature.

#5: Abhor Superficial Small Talk

Do you prefer having meaningful conversations that stimulate your thinking instead of small talk about the weather, food, or trendy stuff? You could be an Old Soul. Here, Old Souls want to make all their thoughts count. Hence, they are selective in how they talk or the words they use to express their views.

That’s why an Old Soul will naturally have strong communication and verbal skills. It can get lonely when those around you struggle to keep up with your conversations.

#6: Struggle with Dating

We live in a hook-up culture where the young and old meet online and date. It involves shallow flirting, playing games, or stringing others along to know each other better. Yet, this dating language is too hard for an Old Soul to wrap their heads around.

See, an Old Soul lives by personal standards they don’t intend to lower in the name of dating. Doing so will deny a core part of their true identity. On the flip side, when an Old Soul meets another Old Soul, dating becomes almost automatic. The two connect easily and cherish their soul connection.

#7: Exceptionally Good at Reading People

If you are an Old Soul, you will often get strong gut feelings about someone you meet for the first time. This feeling will make you like or dislike the stranger instantly, regardless of how they portray themselves. Afterward, you realize that your intuition was on point, saving you unnecessary heartaches or propelling you to take risks that others would turn down.

Likewise, Old Souls are excellent body language readers and natural psychologists. By observing how someone twitches their lips, shifts eyes, or changes tone when speaking, the Old Souls can tell when the other is upset, honest, or deceiving.

#8: People Gravitate Towards You for Advice

Old Souls have a contemplative nature that will find valuable lessons in the most chaotic situation. They reflect and find clues to issues that we often overlook. In turn, friends and loved ones admire this maturity, clear and sound judgments. Others even view the Old Soul as a role model. Hence, they turn to them for advice, conflict resolution, or second opinions.

Can an Old Soul Be Bad for You?

Well, Old Soul traits can become challenging if: –

  • Your focus on the bigger picture or future goals distracts you from accomplishing mundane but necessary tasks. For example, not paying your bills or going to work due to procrastinating about the possible multi-million business you intend to run in the next five years.
  • Your desire for solitude leads you to chronic loneliness, even when surrounded by people.
  • Lack of dating skills leaves you feeling empty and unwanted.
  • You use your role model position in the society for selfish gain.

Conclusion

If you suspect that you are an Old Soul, use the above tell-tale signs you’re an old soul as your checklist. This will help you and those around you to understand and accept your unique personality. More so, determine if your Old Soul traits are interfering with your healthy lifestyle and make necessary lifestyle changes for better living.
