Recognizing and understanding your personal archetypal patterns is one of the most fundamental tools of consciousness for navigating these times, says Myss (Sacred Contracts), a renowned teacher and author on energy medicine and human consciousness. Archetypes are collective unconscious patterns of influence that are entirely impersonal, and yet are equally the "foundation of our beliefs, drives, motivations, and actions, organizing and energizing all our relationships in life." Think of your childhood power images and you begin to recognize your personal archetypes. Myss has identified ten emerging archetypal patterns reflecting the collective mythic challenges of our times, and the corresponding personal and spiritual power issues defining women today: advocate, artist/creative, athlete, caregiver, fashionista, intellectual, queen/executive, rebel, spiritual seeker, and visionary. Each pattern has key influences on daily life; Myss examines each in depth, laying out a path of authentic self-discovery that empowers readers to utilize their strengths, better understand others, and make a positive difference in the world through more conscious decisions.
