What are archetypes?

Archetypes constantly vibrate within our mind field and we can say that they shape the future or what is to become of living and specifically the evolution of the human species.

Here are a few examples of archetypes: the traveler, the artist, the lover, the sportsperson, the saboteur, the victim, the parent, the child, the hermit, etc. Every individual has archetypes which are somewhat of character traits which manifest themselves in several spheres of our lives.

When archetypes become conscious and assimilated by the mind they can bring exceptional creativity to the individual. If archetypes remain in the unconscious mind or are repressed (parts of ourselves that we do not let emerge), they can create feelings of emptiness and unhappiness from not knowing what is our life’s purpose.
