Sage/Crone Archetype

Are you living in the past or the present? 

Let's Talk Archetypes will explore the Sage/Crone Archetype on August 22nd's show with guest Denise Poole.  Listen live or enjoy the podcast at your convenience.

The Sage/Crone wants you to review your lifetime, regardless of your age.

Have you learned from the wisdom of your experiences?
Do you constantly look back at the way life used to be?
Are you living in the present?

The illuminated Sage moves with the wisdom of each and every experience.
The shadow Sage wants to recapture what is gone, often expressing anger and regret.

Alchemist Archetype

Listen to our discussion of the Alchemist Archetype

Is it time for you to let go? 
Ready to move forward?

Join me as we explore the Alchemist Archetype 
which changes your lead into gold.

The Alchemist archetype asks you examine what needs to change in your life.
Beliefs, actions, what are you holding on to? Is it working for you or not?
The illuminated alchemist represents change and transformation that takes you to a new level of energy. The higher your frequency of energy the faster, easier things change and manifest.

The shadow alchemist keeps you stuck in trauma-drama. Holding on to past experiences is like carrying a heavy lead weight everywhere you go

Change is not as frightening as you imagine.

"Today we’re going to explore your opportunities to see things in a new way with my guest, Laurie Buchanan. "

With the philosophy of “Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing,” Laurie works with the whole person, helping them turn intention into action; getting them from where they are, to where they want to be-body, mind, and spirit.

Intuition -- What is it?

Listen to the Podcast August 8th on for more on how to work with your intuition.

Intuition is the process of making conscious that which is unconscious. Like radio waves, intuition flows around us all the time and like the radio, you  have to turn your receiver on to get the message.

Defining Your Personal Process
  • Intuition downloads through your dominant sense -- seeing, feeling, and/or hearing
  • And, resonates secondarily somewhere within your body
  • Intuition only comes in the PRESENT moment

Not sure about yours? Observe how you explain things -- "I see what you mean."  "I hear what you're saying." Or, "Feels right to me."  One sense may predominate with the others following closely behind. 

The human system is electro-magnetic, so when intuition downloads into your consciousness the energy moves through your physical body and will resonate somewhere within your body.

The most common responses are chills, a drop in the stomach, a warm feeling in the heart -- your response is as unique as you are. One client's eyes watered and this was how she knew it was intuition and not her imagination.

The secondary response is confirmation that you've received intuitive information and not mind chatter.


Intuition is the language of metaphors and a sense of knowingness. You have a vocabulary of symbols that is all your own. For instance, when I see a snake, I get healing. You may see a snake and get poison or death.

Know your process --  

  • Does the information come in metaphors and/or symbols?
  • Where do you feel it in your body?  
  • What does it look or feel like?
  • What symbols speak to you?  
  • Are your symbols repetitive?  

Once you've discovered your dominant sense, identified your body's secondary response, and begun to be aware of your symbols and metaphors --  you're ready to go to the next level - trust

The success of your intuition is directly related to your willingness to fail! Its greatest enemy is pride. The ego's investment in being right is counter- productive to your intuitive process. 

Exercises --

Make a game out of your exercises --
  • Guess who's on the phone --without caller ID
  • Take a deck of playing cards, shuffle, intuit the color of each card. Red goes in one pile, black in another. Notice how each card feels when you hold it.
  • Ask questions in Yes or No. Be aware of the energy sensations in your body to distinguish between the two answers.  

New Blog Design Coming Soon

We're currently working on a new and improved design for my blog. So, don't be surprised if it's constantly changing for a while.

I think you'll enjoy the new features, including Let's Talk page. You'll be able to email questions about archetypes, intuition, and other things to me and I'll post the answer.

Stay tuned --
