Tapping Into the Wisdom of Archetypes to Help You Find Your True Path
The discovery of our life purpose begins with looking at the path that we’re on now. Today we’re sharing an excerpt from the audiobook Why?: What Your Life is Telling You About Who You Are and Why You’re Here, written by Dr.s Matthew McKay, Sean Olaoire, and Ralph Metzner. This excerpt discusses the six great archetypal pathways that can help you to express your talents and realize your mission: the teacher/communicator, the healer/peacemaker, the warrior/guardian, the explorer/scientist, the builder/ organizer, and the artist/designer. The wisdom of these archetypes can be a helpful guide to find your true path in life.
Do you wonder what your true path in life is? We each have a purpose and a mission. However, uncovering this purpose can be challenging, and often daunting. If you are like most, you have probably asked yourself, “Why am I here?” But where do you turn for answers? Religion? Psychology? Spirituality?
Why?: What Your Life is Telling You About Who You Are and Why You’re Here will help you to create your own cosmology that unites your beliefs with your life’s mission, helps you recognize that individual mission, and outline exercises to bring you into alignment with this mission via personal practices.
