Archetype: Hedonist

If I were running the world, every person on earth would be a Hedonist. Illuminated Hedonist, that is.

When you draw the Hedonist Archetype card, you're being asked to examine your relationship to your physical world.

  • Do you experience the joy of living through taste, touch, sight and sound? 
  • What senses do you not allow yourself to enjoy? 
Too often you are critical and judgmental about how much you can enjoy in your life. The meal is the best you've ever eaten, but it cost too much, or was too rich. The life you're leading is great, but  . . . .

Happy children are the greatest example of the illuminated hedonist. They are aware of their senses and express them with great vigor. Your spirit is accessed through feelings.

The Illuminated Hedonist appreciates life and all it has to offer through taste, touch, sight, and sound. The Shadow Hedonist denies the pleasure of sensory experiences.

This week get to know your inner hedonist. Allow the illuminated hedonist to be expressed in everything that you do. Watch what you are denying yourself. Can you awaken your senses to the joy of life?

  • Do you allow yourself to have the best?
  • Are you willing to create a new aliveness in your life?
  • List all the "but's" that keep you from fully enjoying the zest of life this week.
Please feel welcome to share your experiences --

Archetype: Magician/Wizard

When you draw the Magician/Wizard Archetype card, you are being asked to examine the illusions you are living and believe to be true.

  • How many spells have been cast upon you?
  • Did a person of authority tell you that you are too good or not good enough?
  • What illusions can I release?
Allow the magic of the Illuminated Magician/Wizard to see beyond your self-imposed limitations and create new, empowering spells for yourself.

The Illuminateds Magician/Wizard see the whole of creation from unseen matter, while the Shadows trick and cast illusions, making you believe you are less than perfect.

This week examine what spells you're living under that you identify as simply "that's the way I am". What patterns of action have been handed down and from where and from whom.

Intention is the key to breaking old spells and rituals. We always get the results of our intentions.

This week as you spend time with the Magician/Wizard archetype examine what magic needs to be created in your life -- go beyond the limitations of your reality and allow yourself to dream. Trust the Wizard and Magician to bring a new energetic template of your undiscovered talents into your life.

  • What do I want to create this week?
  • What dreams do I want to manifest?
  • Ask yourself, "Who would I be if I were to . . . ?
