The Detective is about revelation; he helps you discover the unknown parts of your creativity and spirit that you've kept hidden from yourself and others. Perhaps you have a dream that you've hidden because you think others will laugh. Or you're afraid to express your personal power because you think others will abandon you.
The illuminated Detective archetype gathers clues, bits of the puzzle, to solve life situations -- both big and small. The shadow always goes to the outside world for answers, wants others to be at fault. When you always blame on the outside world for your problems, then you never have to accept responsibility for your actions or your life.
- Do your life patterns hold you prisoner? How?
- What are the beliefs behind the patterns?
- Are parts of your spirit/creativity hidden?
- What needs to be revealed and resolved for you to more forward with your life?
Have a great week with the Detective.
