Archetypes are the language of our soul
What are archetype cards
They are visual symbols or energetic imprints that exist in our psyches. Accessing our unconscious mind directly, archetypes can often convey messages that verbal and written information cannot. We are shown what is likely to happen if we continue upon a current path. We can then decide whether it is in our best interest to change our direction or move forward with clear intention.
As we study the symbolism, the organisation, and the structure of the cards, they become a Book of Wisdom for us, revealing the reality behind our daily experiences.
One of the functions of the archetypes is to assist us in looking at our lives from a much larger, more mythic and spiritually expansive perspective. It is a part of my individual session.
Archetypal energy heals, catalyses and transforms at a vibrational level of consciousness that goes far beyond what the mind can comprehend. As we have many levels of consciousness, this transformational work can go for some time, clearing and integrating layer by layer.
How to read your archetypal cards
These are some suggestions for how to work with the cards after the reading:
Spend some time looking at the cards. Are there some that draw your attention more than others? What attracted you most? Is it a certain colour, symbol or a combination of things? How do you feel when looking at them?
If some issues come up while looking at a card, focus your attention on it and concentrate on your rhythmic breathing. Using longer exhalation with the intention of letting go will assist you in moving through the issue.
Come back to review them from time to time. Notice which cards draw your attention now? Has anything changed for you?
Pick a card for a day from your spread. Connect to it whenever you remember. Notice what happens during that day.
Also, pay attention to your dreams as they are messages from your unconscious.
Have fun with the cards. They are indeed a great source of wisdom and inspiration. When no more insights are coming up, you are ready for your next level of healing spread!
