Reanimating the Archetypes


Published under: What is a Warrior Priestess?

The War­rior Priest­ess is an arche­type — one of many god­dess archetypes.

Arche­types exist (whether acknowl­edged or sup­pressed) in all of us — men and women alike. They’re the foun­da­tion for all our think­ing, feel­ings, and behav­ior patterns.

Accord­ing to Jun­gian psy­chol­ogy, an arche­type is an inher­ited pat­tern of thought or sym­bolic imagery derived from the past col­lec­tive expe­ri­ence and present in the indi­vid­ual unconscious.

And what of our past col­lec­tive expe­ri­ence? What did it con­tain? What’s reflected out there — and what’s being held in the shadows?

We’ve lived too long out-of-balance. The cre­ation of our new global con­scious­ness requires that our fem­i­nine arche­types are awak­ened (in us all) — brought out into the open — and restored to full con­scious­ness.
