Product description

Have you ever wondered why you are drawn to certain people, ideas or products and turned off by others? Are you constantly searching for something you can't put your finger on, or wondering whether you are living a life that truly fits? In Archetypes, New York Times bestselling author Caroline Myss delves into the world of archetypes, which have been the subject of her work for more than 25 years. Archetypes are universal patterns of behavior that, once discovered, help you better understand yourself and your place in the world. In short, knowing your archetypes can transform your life. Within the pages of this book, Myss writes about ten primary archetypes that have emerged in today's society: the Caregiver, the Artist/Creative, the Fashionista, the Intellectual, the Rebel, the Queen/Executive, the Advocate, the Visionary, the Athlete, and the Spiritual Seeker. In each chapter, she explains one individual archetype, showing how it has evolved and then in fascinating detail lays out the unique characteristics, the defining graces, the life challenges, and other information to help you understand if you are part of this archetype family and if so, how you can fully tap into its power. You can then use this knowledge to make more conscious decisions about everything from careers to relationships, avoiding common pitfalls of your personality type while playing up your strengths.

If you are intrigued about diving deeply into life, Caroline Myss provides an avenue for you to explore. She presents a symbolic language of power that is transformational. When we recognize and understand this language we have the advantage of great insight(s) into our lives. This symbolism, as Caroline Myss describes, connects every single one of us.

Archetypes are not to be confused with labels we project onto others rather they serve as a guidance system into our real selves.
What propels you in one direction or the other?

Archetypes are universally recognizable, however, the challenge lies in finding the ones that drive and describe you personally.

Have no fear; Caroline writes her expansive ideas with clear and concise intention. Her message is conveyed with an honest integrity. Upon reading her work, I felt she really wanted me to get it by understanding and applying this wisdom. Caroline thoroughly outlines the most prevalent archetypes in society during this time. She defines and differentiates the archetypes on a deep and soulful level that will leave the ego either resisting or insisting.

This book ignites a deep discovery for conscious decision making in our lives. Grab a highlighter, make some notes and have fun with this symbolic language for and in your life.
