How Archetypes Direct and Influence the Course of Our Lives
The contents of the collective unconscious are archetypes.
Primordial images that reflect basic patterns that are common to us all,
and which have existed since the dawn of time.
~Jung’s Concept of the Collective Unconscious
In this week’s Podcast I had the privilege of spending time with archetypal chart reader, healer and intuitive – Barbara Stone, where we explored the effects that these often hidden and unconscious energies have on the path of our lives, and how we can ultimately find courage to listen to the true voice of our hearts.
Barb has now been working in the field of alternative health, healing and spiritual development for over 40 years. Initially starting her journey studying lay psychology and doing crisis phone counselling work, Barb later went on to learn Reiki which helped activate her natural intuitive and psychic potential.
Along the way she had the privilege of work with many great teachers, where she extended her practice into the fields of Seichim, NLP, Cutting the Ties that Bind, Energy Anatomy, Archetypes, Astrology, Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Pranic Healing, Bowen Therapy, Neuro Structural Integration Technique, flower essences, Tarot and Meditation. However, her main work over the last 20 years has been in the field of Archetypes and understanding the often hidden and subtle influences that often play out in our lives.
Having initially studied the work with Dr. Caroline Myss, Barb has now gone on to cast over 20,000 + charts/ readings for her clients. Helping them gain the guidance, direction and self-empowerment that they have needed to fully thrive in their lives. She now lives in The Basin, on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia with her new partner, and is blessed to have 3 wonderful adult children, and 9 magnificent grandchildren. .
Discover how these universal energies and unconscious patterns
directly influence the nature of our lives.
In this fascinating podcast interview we discuss and explore the concept of Archetypes, the universal energies and patterns that seem to play out in our lives. While some of these archetypes are believed to be present in every person, many of them play out and influence our lives in diverse ways as we progress on our life and soul journey.
By learning to identify and understand these patterns we can finally learn to consciously evolve our thinking and feeling to become more empowered, present and vital in our lives. Instead of reacting to the tribal forces at play we can develop the consciousness and awareness that helps us to regain our power, and make choices and decisions that are aligned with the truth of our hearts.
The result is that we become the hero and heroine of our own lives – vital and self-sufficient travellers who can embrace the courage to adjust our sails and live the lives we were truly born to live.
In this conversation we talk about:
- What archetypes really are and how their influence plays out in our lives
- The three key addictions that keep modern society from realising their full potential
- The four levels of consciousness and how we can ascend to greater levels of awareness
- The role that the heart and intuition have in bringing us back to our true states of being
- Why trust, self-love and self-respect are critical if we are going to progress in our lives
- How archetypes often play out in our personal relationships
- The empowerment of women and the impact that it is having on men and relationships
- The hero’s journey and how we are all being called to step into our light and lead
