Archetype: Detective*

The Detective is an excellent archetype for this time of the year when you are formulating your goals for 2010. The Detective is about Revelation and is asking that you search the patterns of your life to discover where you are empowered or dis-empowered.  

While the Illuminated Detective gathers the clues, bits of a puzzle, to solve life's problems -- the Shadow Detective goes to the outside world for answers, wants others to be at fault, and constantly blames others.

Ask yourself --
  • Are you stuck with always asking why?
  • Can you find bits of the puzzle -- such as what's holding you back from achieving your dreams and goals?
  • What parts of your creative spirit are hidden?
  • What needs to be revealed and resolved for you to move forward with your life?
In my work I constantly ask clients "What do you want?" and the answers are rarely clear. I tell everyone one that I am your fairly godmother and I can give you whatever you wish for and again I ask "What do you want?".

What would your answer be? Is it something you truly want or is it something you think other people in your life want you to want?

This week gather clues and have Detective Archetype help you.
  • What patterns have to change in order for you to achieve your goals?
  • What has to be created or released?
  • Who would you be if you achieved what it is you want this year?
  • How would you be different?
Have fun! Please feel welcome to share your discoveries with us on the blog. -- roi
