Sacred Contracts with Susan Loraine Barker, The Mandala Coach
Your Sacred Contracts are the contracts you made before you incarnated is this lifetime to have the personality traits, or archetypes that make you who you are. Your archetypes are the reason you see the world the way you do. They are why you believe as you do, feel the way you do and are motivated how you are. They are behind the patterns that keep emerging in your life. Why did you choose your particular contracts? So that you can experience what you need to experience in order to evolve.
Your sacred contracts permeate every part of your life and who you are in relationships. Some of those relationships are life long and some may seem like a chance meeting, but they were all agreed to by you and the other souls involved to manifest in this lifetime for your benefit and growth. When you realize that you chose your parents, children, siblings, lovers and friends for a particular experience and growth opportunity, you can forgive easily, because you ultimately realize that there is nothing to forgive.
Discovering and understanding your sacred contracts gives you a clear picture of what works for you and what does not. To understand your archetypes is to get a clear picture of your chosen path, to see that you are in fact beautifully whole and powerful and to give up the resistance and let yourself choose the higher path in every situation, making your life flow with ease, instead of struggle. It is like being given the User's Manual to your life.
We all have twelve natal archetypes that most strongly influence us. We have many more over our lifetime, but these twelve remain our guiding force, our allies in navigating our world.
Carl Jung not only introduced the mandala to the West, but he also worked heavily with archetypes which were recognized as far back as Plato's time. Caroline Myss has made them even more accessible with her beautiful work on sacred contracts.
Some archetypes are very easily spotted, for instance the Mother archetype that can be nurturing and give unconditional love, or the Martyr, who suffers for others. Who doesn't know a Damsel, waiting to be rescued, or a Queen with her natural power and positive authority? Do you know a Warrior who fights for justice, a Rebel, or how about a natural born Teacher? There are hundreds of archetypes that have been identified and new ones showing up as we evolve.
Like everything in this world of duality, there is a light side and a shadow side to each archetype and we are always somewhere on the continuum. The nurturing, loving Mother can be oppressive and smothering when too far in the shadow. The Martyr can be controlling and manipulative in the shadow, but have the shining, uncompromising courage of her convictions in the light. Our sacred archetypes are fascinating and they show us in no uncertain terms our divine path.
Once you have discovered your own Sacred Contracts, you can clearly see how they have worked in your life; where you have been in the shadow and where you have accessed the light. Your repeating patterns make sense. Your archetypes are your allies in negotiating the world. They will always show you your higher path, the way to evolve. You can work with them to greatly improve your life experience.
This will be a fun meetup not to be missed.
