According to Carl Jung, the pioneer of analytical psychoanalysis, the human psyche has archetypical ideas that existed before we were born. These are what form the foundation of personalities and human behavior. They influence our behavior, trigger emotions, and give us a sense of personal meaning. In this article, we will discuss the 12 spiritual archetypes that determine our spiritual development.

The 12 Spiritual Archetypes

The spiritual archetype refers to behavioral patterns that determine our emotional, psychological, and spiritual development. There are 12 spiritual archetypes:

  1. The Alchemist
  2. The Ascetic
  3. The Cenobite
  4. The Devotee
  5. The Disciple
  6. The Hermit
  7. The Mystic
  8. The Prophet
  9. The Rebel
  10. The Sage
  11. The Saint
  12. The Shaman

Let’s take a closer look at each of these spiritual archetypes.

#1: The Alchemist

Alchemist spiritual archetype image

The alchemist is the wizard. This archetype loves change and transformation. In turn, they look forward to the possibilities and changes that the future holds. Alchemists seek spiritual Unity, blessings, atonement, and alignment through the practice of rituals, spells, and ceremonies. Often, these rituals, spells, and ceremonies include the invocation of non-physical beings such as spirits and elemental forces through the careful arrangement, manipulation, or construction of physical objects. To an Alchemist, service, sacred rites of passage, and everyday acts of faith aid in strengthening their connection to the Divine.

Hence, if you possess the alchemist archetype:

  • your drive is in possibilities;
  • intuition is your greatest asset;
  • you are devotional and down-to-earth person who enjoys expressing his/her faith through sincere religious, cultural, or self-designed rituals;
  • you create an aura of mystique around yourself, exuding a sense of confidence and self-assurance;
  • you believe in magic and miracles;
  • you’re interested in astrology, spirituality, and mythology;
  • you feel that you’re capable of effecting great change in the world;
  • you can effect change in a quicker way than others, and in doing so can cause a sensation;
  • you often help others see the world or their problems from a different perspective;
  • you may get unwarranted criticism from those around you.

#2: The Ascetic

Ascetic image

Do you seek self-perfection, to the extent of forgoing material possessions? You could be the Ascetic archetype. The Ascetic is also known as the “Yogi” in Eastern spiritual tradition. This spiritual archetype is dedicated to experimenting with, mastering, and obtaining higher states of consciousness. Also, the Ascetic archetype pursues a spiritual journey characterized by the denial of bodily needs. The Ascetic’s spiritual practices almost always involve some degree of abstinence or rigorous training.

You are the Ascetic archetype if you:

  • are introspective, disciplined, strong-willed, rigorous, determined, devotional, and passionate;
  • hold yourself to incredibly high standards of self-perfection;
  • do not own or use magical or ritual tools for your spiritual practices;
  • wear simple, non-lavish clothing;
  • are particularly drawn to practices that induce alternate states of consciousness or higher states of consciousness such as energetic breathing techniques, types of meditation, mantras, yogic postures, sleep alteration, special diets (fasting, veganism, etc.), etc;
  • are self-disciplined;
  • choose abstinence, sobriety, or chasteness as pathways to experiencing Unity;
  • do not attempt to bypass your self-imposed restrictions.

#3: The Cenobite

Cenobite image

The Cenobite archetype values the sense of belonging to a spiritual family. This personality derives their human connection when in the company of like-minded people. In turn, the cenobite creates meet-ups and social communities with other persons that share their thoughts, objectives, and dreams. Due to their selfless nature, cenobites have unconditional love for others. Still, in the absence of boundaries, this love may turn into unhealthy co-dependency. Moreover, cenobites may also have the tendency to give in to mindless “groupthink” by allowing others to make their decisions. Conformity and the sacrificing of one’s needs and dreams may also result in communal situations.

You are the Cenobite archetype if you:

  • thrive the best when you’re leading, or part of, a soul tribe;
  • tend to be a part of spiritual meet-ups and spiritual communities;
  • love to be surrounded by like-minded spiritual people;
  • value solidarity in the form of brotherhood, sisterhood or the spiritual family as a way of experiencing the Divine;
  • deeply value human connection.

 #4: The Devotee

Devotee Image

Do you find yourself drawn to a spiritual journey characterized by devotion to a deity or spiritual figure? If so, your dominant personality is the Devotee spiritual archetype. See, the Devotee worships, commits to, and serves a God or Goddess, Buddha, Jesus, the Holy Mother, or any other divine power. More so, the Devotee prefers growing while under the guidance and support of an experienced spiritual teacher or mentor. Typical traits of a devotee include being receptive, passionate, trusting, open, determined, and humble.

You are the Devotee archetype if you:

  • are drawn towards the spiritual practices of worship, service, commitment, and heartfelt celebration of the Divine;
  • feel the most spiritually supported when you are guided by an experienced teacher, guide (whether physical or nonphysical), mentor or guru;
  • are drawn towards the spiritual practices of worship, service, commitment, and heartfelt celebration of the Divine;
  • are passionately devoted to the search of finding your True Nature through the process of self-emptying;
  • are devoted to listening and honoring the voice within.

 #5: The Disciple

Disciple Spiritual Archetype Image

Anyone with a dominant disciple spiritual archetype is a natural learner. Such persons thrive under the guidance of a spiritual leader by listening and learning from them. Usually, disciples are loyal and passionate supporters of a single teacher, ideal, creed, doctrine, or religious teaching. They find great support, confidence, security, and emotional closure in their chosen spiritual path.

You are the Disciple archetype if you:

  • are loyal, passionate, enthusiastic, supportive, receptive, devotional, curious, and honest;
  • feel the most fulfilled when you are learning, teaching, preaching, serving or worshiping your particular expression of Divinity;
  • thrive when you are surrounded by people of similar faith and conviction;
  • view the world through the eyes of your spiritual community;
  • tend to relinquish your authority to your spiritual leaders;
  • observes a religious lifestyle characterized by immersion in regular rituals;

#6: The Hermit

Hermit Spiritual Archetype Image

Are you a loner? The Hermit spiritual archetype prefers solitude. Anyone with this personality is introspective, pursuing a spiritual journey away from distractions. However, not all introverts have the hermit as their dominant archetype. Similarly, the hermit finds internal balance when meditating or studying spiritual aspects of life. But note that this solitude can turn into self-absorption and leading a secretive lifestyle. 

The Hermit’s traits:

  • you are insightful, introspective, passionate, meditative, loyal, intelligent, and receptive;
  • you feel the most at home with Divinity when you are alone;
  • in solitude, you learn how to be self and God-reliant, receptive, intensely focused, and intimate with the mysteries of life;
  • solitude gives you the space to simplify your life, get rid of distractions, and draw closer to the Divine;
  • you are an introspective person.

#7: The Mystic

Mystic Archetype Image

Now, the mystic spiritual archetype is naturally intuitive and sensitive. Hence, this archetype relies on feelings to discern messages from the spiritual realm. For example, the mystic may view their current struggles as a necessary step to discover their True Nature and connect to a higher calling. In turn, they hardly find pleasure or satisfaction in riches, fame, or status in society. They also view themselves as one with the universe. Consequently, they devote their lives to finding divinity in all aspects of life. If you are the Mystic archetype, you will be drawn towards transcending the ego and melting the boundaries between “you” and Infinite Consciousness. To you, the ultimate achievement in life is the unio mystica, the spiritual marriage between the self and the Soul.

You are the Mystic archetype if you:

  • are deeply sensitive, intuitive, and perceptive person;
  • have always sensed that there is something “beyond” the ordinary;
  • the pursuit of earthly pleasures such as fame, status, and riches has never appealed to you to the same extent as it does to others;
  • are wise, receptive, open-minded, and loving;
  • yearn for wisdom, love, and the ultimate freedom that comes from merging with your True Nature;
  • are devoted to exploring the Mystery that is life and inviting the presence of the Divine into your everyday life.

#8: The Prophet

Prophet Spiritual Archetype Image

When the Prophet spiritual archetype is dominant in you, you become the channel through which the spiritual realm communicates to humanity. As a Prophet, you have the gift of channeling and enlightening humanity with sacred knowledge. Whether through metaphysical gifts such as “second sight,” mediumship, and clairsentience, or through practices such as deep meditation and self-hypnosis, you are able to gain insight from spirit guides, angels, nature spirits, ancestral souls, or Consciousness itself for the benefit of others. In this world, you serve as a vessel or open channel through which wise, profound, predictive, and crucial guidance can be accessed.

You are the Prophet archetype if you:

  • are humble, receptive, open, expressive, intuitive, intelligent, and honest;
  • have the gift of channelling;
  • see yourself as a Divine Messenger who is skilled at receiving, understanding, and expressing the sacred mysteries to humankind;
  • have some metaphysical gift, such as “second sight,” mediumship, clairvoyance, etc.

#9: The Rebel

Spiritual Rebel Image

The Rebel spiritual archetype is a truth seeker. Anyone with this personality trait uses their insight to sieve through ideologies, illusions, and myths. That way, they tell apart the truth from misconceptions. Also, the Rebel archetype leads a lifestyle detached from any misleading spiritual concepts. Your ability to see through, challenge, reject, uproot, and expose limiting beliefs, traditions, and ways of life make you a powerful force of change in the world. Spiritually, your ability to see the truth is what endows you with immense wisdom and sacred understanding so often lacked by others. Your desire to reveal the truth at all costs is what makes you so loved and, at the same time, so feared by others.

You are the Rebel archetype if you:

  • are honest, perceptive, passionate, assertive, intelligent, insightful, open-minded, and rational;
  • see yourself as a truth seeker;
  • enjoy challenging the status quo, exploding dogmas, and exposing corruption;
  • are the bringer of death to old paradigms just as you are the bringer of life to new ways of living;
  • detach yourself from anything perceived to be untruthful, naive, or spiritually misleading.

#10: The Sage

Spiritual Sage Image

The Sage spiritual archetype is a knowledge seeker, a philosopher at heart who seeks to understand and teach the mysteries of existence. Anyone with this archetype invests most of their lifetime to study sacred texts, quotes from spiritual teachers, or any other material that will deepen their connection with the Divine. More so, these individuals can articulate their wealth of knowledge to others, either in writing or by speaking. Eventually, as a wise philosopher, the sage takes up the role of a spiritual guide or teacher in spiritual communities. 

You are the Sage archetype if you:

  • are intelligent, witty, articulate, curious, wise, generous, lighthearted, and charismatic;
  • love to collect knowledge that will help you to develop a deeper connection to the Divine;
  • are profoundly attracted to the role of the Teacher or Guide who has embodied their wisdom into self-expression;
  • hope (deep down) to someday share your knowledge with others;
  • have the gift of articulating your insight through speaking or writing;
  • enjoy analysis, abstract reasoning, ideas, theories, and philosophies;
  • are a seeker of wisdom through the vehicle of the mind.

#11: The Saint

saint archetype image

The Saint spiritual archetype has great compassion for humanity. This archetype views all lifeforms as sacred and needs to be preserved. As a result, they engage in benevolent causes like giving to charity, looking after endangered animals, or advocating for the rights of the needy and vulnerable in society. The Saint archetype values action as the highest form of love. Dogma and spiritual theories mean nothing to the Saint if they can’t be backed by loving action.

You are the Saint archetype if you:

  • are a sensitive, charitable, and intensely warm hearted person;
  • can’t stand to see acts of injustice, abuse or neglect committed against life;
  • are compassionate, benevolent, humanitarian, gentle, loving, proactive, practical, and loyal;
  • see all of life as sacred, no matter how small, marginal, or forsaken;
  • are the kind of person to take on the suffering of others and be the spokesperson for a movement or benevolent cause;
  • are the defender of the downtrodden, the protector of the abused, and the nurturer of the disowned.

#12: The Shaman

Shaman archetype Image

Finally, the Shaman spiritual archetype is a healer and a gifted storyteller. The Shaman archetype is also known as a medicine man/woman or a healer. This spiritual archetype helps other people heal on a soul level. If you are the Shaman archetype, you feel the most spiritually fulfilled when you’re helping others find health and wholeness again. Deep within you, there is the urge to heal other people of their ailments, whether they be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

You are the Shaman archetype if you:

  • are highly sensitive, sensual, intuitive, perceptive, compassionate, grounded, insightful, empathic, and energy conscious;
  • value manifestations from dreams, sacred history, and imagination;
  • are an empath who can tune into the subtle energy present in other people, animals, places and nature forms;
  • feel the most at home in nature;
  • are an outsider who notices things other people don’t seem to notice or care about;
  • love helping others find health and wholeness.

Conclusion

So, what is your spiritual archetype? Note that your dominant spiritual archetype can change over time. You may be a natural learner during your teen years and then transform to become a sage or shaman as an adult. These changes are due to our surroundings and interactions with different people and places over time.

What is Ego Death? How and Why Does It Happen?

Published

on

What is Ego Death Image

Humans associate death with darkness, sorrow, and pain. It is just something many people are scared of. However, ego death goes the opposite way. The death of your ego comes with enlightenment, self-exploration, and going beyond the glass ceiling.

In simpler terms, the ego is the sense of self typically developed in earlier ages. It is a biological tool that helps us understand ourselves as separate beings. The problem appears when the ego takes on a level of programming that begins to impede the quality of life we live. This is why many people believe it needs to die.

But first:

What is Ego Death?

Many people think that ego death happens when we strip ourselves of the ego and live without it. No, the ego cannot die. What happens is that it becomes submissive to the awareness and direction of our higher selves so that it no longer controls our lives. The experience temporarily and instantaneously goes beyond and above our identities. By shifting your awareness above the perspective of the ego, you begin to realize that you are not the things you have identified with before.

The death of your ego comes with much self-awakening and peace; you want to experience it. It is one of the most beautiful experiences you could have if you truly understand your spiritual path. Such an experience, however, may feel horrific for people who do not understand their spiritual path or people who resist the experience.

Why Seek It?

Ego defense mechanisms image

People are now going out of their way to experience ego death. It has become part of the spiritual journey for many people.

Here are some reasons to seek an ego death experience:

#1: Improved self-control

People often think that ego death is just for people unsatisfied with their mental wellness. Even if you are confident with your state, its demise can change your perception, eventually leading you to much clarity and success.

#2: Easier time breaking even

Our perception and identification limit us from going to other levels. Our ego keeps us in a mindset that limits us. It may feel like we are living in an unknown shell. Detaching yourself from the ego or shrinking it will allow you to crush your current sense of self that limits your abilities.

#3: Acquire a new you

We often have a rigid way of identifying ourselves. You will easily break even if you realize you differ from the sum of the labels you previously put on yourself. You will be in a much more powerful position to question things you believe in and go out of your way to seek peace and clarity. It is an excellent tool for breaking world constructs such as race or religion, which are often deeply rooted in mind and consciousness.

Stages of Ego Death

The death of the ego is different for everyone. This all starts from the triggers of the first stages and later the intense stages before you fully settle into the awakening. The first triggers may differ, but as the experience progresses, the stages become identical.

 Here are the stages you will most likely go through:

Stage 1: Spiritual awakening

The ego is deeply rooted in your spiritual being. The first step is your awakening from the ego’s power over you.

Stage 2: Dark night of the soul

In this second stage, you seek to understand things. This is after you accept the awakening that comes with the first stage. This stage is characterized by questioning things that now appear different from what they did before. It can be a confusing stage as many things now start revealing themselves to you.

Stage 3: Exploration and curiosity

In the third stage, you explore more to fill the void in your soul and being. This stage allows you to live in a space of more peace and enlightenment.

Stage 4: Soul growth and enlightenment

This stage allows you to settle in your newly found peace and awakening. Here, you have explored yourself profoundly and now know more about your true self. You will realize that you have already let go of many of your old patterns and habits. This stage has no fighting and battling with your ego, as you already have your new true identity.

How to Achieve Ego Death?

Meditation Quotes 5 yamas Image

You need to understand some things before you seek to kill your ego. For instance, why do you want to experience it? Understand that a spiritual ego is not something casual. You want to go in entirely understanding why you want to do it and the consequences of taking the path.

Many people intentionally seek ego death. Deliberately seeking it can be dangerous; proceed with caution. Ensure you are ready for it before you dive right in. If you are sure of your intentions, you can take the paths that lead to the death of your ego.

With all this imperatively said and done, you can proceed and trigger an ego death. Here are some of the ways people do it:

  • Attending spiritual retreats and workshops that guide you through it;
  • Performing specific types of breathing exercises and meditation practices;
  • Following the teachings of spiritual teachers rooted in spiritual awakening;
  • Entering altered states of consciousness, which may involve meditation, dancing, chanting, and other mystical paths; 
  • Getting involved in mystical, spiritual traditions that offer pathways to ego death.      

What Does the Death of Ego Feel Like? 

You might want to know what ego death feels like before you go for it. Your feelings will definitely be intense. It may feel horrific or exciting, or an alternation between the two. People often experience both extremes while undergoing this death.

What Next? 

After an ego death comes rebirth. A new you will be born with no barriers that limit your journey and abilities. Such death powerfully awakens the mind making your life change forever.

Ego death is not the end of spiritual awakening but rather a new beginning of deeper purpose and meaning.

Self-limiting Beliefs: How to Overcome Fear and Break Our Limitations

Published

on

self-limiting beliefs image

Earlier in life, I was always afraid of senior career positions. I used to apply for junior and entry-level jobs even after many years of employment because I didn’t believe I could handle the senior ranks. Yet each time a senior position became vacant, I was the first person the boss would contact. They saw my potential, but I could never see it because of my self-limiting beliefs. 

Eventually, I would find a reason to decline the promotion. What are you struggling with?

Believe it or not, we all battle with self-limiting beliefs. Are you fearful of signing up for that mortgage because you’re so scared you might not pay it fully? Or is committing to a relationship an uphill task for you?

In this article, I will discuss this fear within us and share practical tips for overcoming these self-limiting beliefs. 

What are Self-limiting Beliefs?

Fact: There are no limits to what you can achieve except for the limits you set in your mind. And this is what sets humans apart. Some people become iconic leaders while others amass massive wealth, yet some still struggle in life. This is one way of looking at it. For you and me, think of the small challenges you encounter in life. Are you truly incapable of handling them, or are you just afraid of trying and failing? 

Self-limiting beliefs are self-developed thoughts, consciously or subconsciously, that we use to convince ourselves that we can’t do something because we are afraid of failing or getting hurt. Consequently, we don’t even allow ourselves to try. Such limiting thoughts are one of the biggest preventers of achieving our goals. And that’s why we need to learn to control and eventually overcome them. So how do we do that?

Practical Steps to Overcome Self-limiting Beliefs

self-limitations image

#1: Identify Your Limiting Belief(s)

What are you so afraid of and why? 

  • Are you scared of getting married because your father abused your mom? 
  • Are you afraid of getting kids because your parents abandoned you when you were little? 
  • Are you afraid of management positions at work because you feel voiceless?

Identifying your self-made limits is your first step to overcoming them. You will need to use your intelligence and accept vulnerability, more like healing your inner child.

#2: Work On Your Confidence

There are several ways to develop self-confidence. The easiest is the use of positive affirmations. The idea is to re-condition your mind into believing what you had otherwise categorized as impossible. You could also apply the law of attraction. Anything you focus your mind on without a shred of doubt eventually comes to be. If you constantly think about boldness, confidence, and assertion, you eventually become bolder, more confident, and more assertive.  

Self-confidence enables us to move out of our comfort zone. We are no longer afraid to try because we believe in our potential. And even if you fail, you believe you can win tomorrow. Besides, you become your own cheerleader and no longer seek approval from others. That’s how powerful we become when we are confident from the inside.  

#3: Set New Goals

Be realistic and set achievable targets. However, always have one clear goal at all times that you’re working towards. That goal should be the most significant on your list. Also, note that big goals are good, but they can demotivate you. Divide these goals into smaller tasks that you can easily achieve. 

For every achievement, your mind registers a win and naturally handles the next task with ease. This way, you find yourself accomplishing tasks you never imagined were possible and consequently become unstoppable in achieving your lifelong dreams. 

#4: Challenge Your Thoughts

Why do you give yourself bad labels such as “I am stupid, slow, worthless, ugly, useless,” etc.? Is it because someone in your past called you that? Did they really have a solid basis to give you that label? How well do they know you? Have they seen the woman or man you have become lately? 

Asking your inner self such questions helps you to look at the other side of the coin. For example, just because my skin has acne doesn’t mean I’m ugly. It’s just one of the many stages in life. And just because I have mobility challenges doesn’t mean I am useless. I still have the brain and hands to write my next bestseller. Challenge your thoughts, whether good or bad, and you will realize that not every gospel you hear is factual. 

#5: Develop an Alternative Plan

set goals image

We don’t have control over our limiting beliefs because they provide a soft fallback. We don’t take risks because we fear getting hurt or hurting others. Say, for example, you’re afraid of getting kids because you’re scared you’ll never be a good mom. Instead of dwelling on being single for the rest of your life, how about you start accommodating other kids in your home and see how well you nurture them? 

You can request your siblings or friends to drop off their toddlers over the weekend and dedicate your energy to looking after them just as if they were your own. After a few months, your natural motherly instincts will start to kick in, and who knows, you might start looking at kids differently. 

If you’re afraid of public speaking because you feel invisible or you’re afraid your voice is not good enough, how about you start by recording podcasts?

Or, if you constantly feel worthless, how about starting a small project that gives you a sense of belonging? Like donating your coffee to a homeless person every morning. Or helping an elderly neighbor water their flowers every weekend. 

The Bottom Line

It’s very easy to develop self-limiting beliefs, especially with a rough childhood or a traumatic past. Our mind is constantly working to protect our fragile ego from getting hurt again. However, the sooner you realize how much you have been missing in your quest to play safe, the sooner you need to break these limiting thoughts and redefine yourself. Your potential starts and ends in your mind. Dare to dream again and develop unshakable confidence because only you can do it.

8 Signs You Are a Free Spirit Who Can Never Be Tamed

Published

on

If you are a free spirit, chances are you struggle to fit in your family or friend’s circles. That is normal. See, as a true spirit, you value your freedom over complacency. You would rather dictate the terms of your life than conform to societal norms.

Well, this nonconformist attitude to life is never free of cost. You may have to get out of your comfort zone, let go of your societal security, look different, and even suffer harm. But, how do you know if you are a free spirit and not just a rebellious person?

This article will discuss the 8 common signs to guide you.

But first:

Understanding the Free Spirit

A free spirit starts from the mind. You live free of domination from any oppressive thoughts, ideas, or notions imposed on you by others. Unlike rebellion, true freedom is about respectfully liberating your mind and body, to coexist with others at peace.

Likewise, a free spirit will not replace one oppressive thought with another. Instead, this person seeks the truth and lives by it. For example, many celebrities that claim to be free spirits are doing so superficially. They may still ascribe to certain notions that are oppressive to their audience. Like the idea of going organic but allowing the use of plastics from a certain brand.

The Signs

free spirit sigs image

If you are a true free spirit, then you can relate to most of the signs below: –

#1: Strong Desire for Freedom

Did you ever quit a well-paying job to pursue a digital nomad lifestyle that pays less than half of your salary? Your strong desire to be free and set your lifestyle standards indicates a truly free-spirited person. See, free-spirited people make lifestyle decisions that prioritize their freedoms.

#2: Abhor Restrictions

In line with a desire for freedom, free spirits despise any restrictions imposed by others in their lives. If you are one, you could be struggling with committing to a deadline, target, or relationship.

And for the career persons, free spirits hop from one organization to another, dreading to be confined at one company for too long. Here, the free spirit struggles to commit to another person or purpose but looks forward to waking up to new challenges or surprises.  

#3: Welcome Challenges

A free spirit encounters problems like any other person. However, they see the problems as new challenges, not threats. Consequently, a free spirit gets excited, not worried when facing challenges.

#4: Spontaneous

A free spirit comes up with rushed decisions that change the course of their lifestyles forever. For example, they may wake up and decide to shift to a new neighborhood, enroll in the gym, or make a swift financial investment. Or, they may change their minds about getting married, having kids, or setting up their businesses. 

These persons hold no attachment to anyone or anything, hence appearing as unserious. As a result, others find it hard to understand why this person can’t stay consistent. 

#5: Unconventionality

Free spirits do things their way. They question any societal expectations and are the last persons to adopt them. Likewise, they are never intimidated by those around them. Instead, they stick to their decisions regardless of how foreign they sound to the masses. 

#6: Insatiable

A free spirit is insatiable. Your goals are different, settling for a better or unique lifestyle from the one your peers are content with. For example, your dream when clearing college was never a well-paying job, the latest car, and a home with kids. Instead, you think of opportunities that will allow you to try new things.

For example, you could be a die-hard globetrotter even though you may not have the means to travel at the moment. You are the kind of person who is content with living from a suitcase for years as you travel around the world.

#7: Great Achievers, Innovators, Dreamers

Now, a free spirit may appear spontaneous and unserious with life, but they have a clear perspective of what they want to achieve. This person comes up with fresh ideas that promise to solve world challenges. And it is the excitement of this new challenge that fuels their desire to achieve the set goals.

wild and free image

#8: Relentless

Free spirits always seek ways of how to make the impossibilities in their lives possible. For example, they will question why it takes three days and not a day for an online shopping order to arrive at their doorstep. And, they will use the latest facts to question current theories.

In turn, these persons never quit. They appear stubborn, holding on to their ideas until they get the solution they were hoping for.

Living a Fulfilling Life as a Free Spirit

Note that, a free spirit is the best candidate for achieving spiritual awakening. This person is intent on soul searching and questions their existence. Still, the life of a free-spirited person can be a lonely one. If you suspect that you are a free spirit, here are a few tips to live a fulfilling lifestyle:

  • Spend more time outdoors. For example, taking part in dance competitions in the open gives you a chance to free your mind and release any stress buildup.
  • Reconnect with your inner child by working with children. They have great imaginations and love exploring and testing their boundaries. Plus, they enjoy doing role plays.
  • Explore a creative career path like preparing exotic dishes and painting on a canvas.
  • Most free-spirited persons are empathetic, considerate, kind, and loving. In turn, they can be victims of emotional abuse. Protect your emotional wellbeing by setting boundaries on who you interact with or what you explore beyond your comfort zone.

Conclusion

Anyone with a free spirit has the untamable spirit of a wolf. You always want to run free beyond the confines of family or society. You also have a tendency to oppose the normal social rule, being overly independent, and never subscribing to others’ rules. That’s why most free spirits are seen as rebellious.
