Carl Jung referred to these characters as archetypes, universal energies that when uncovered help us understand why we do what we do.
Each archetype has qualities that we can tap into in times of need such as: counselor, mother, father, teacher, healer, critic, and warrior to name a few.
Today I want to share one of my archetypes with you.
Meet “The Explorer”. Here is our communication:
I am one who:
follows my heart
trusts my path
has faith in my journey
lets my spirit soar
is free to have fun
trust “the way” is there and unfolds for me
looks for guidance from nature and the divine
is confident in exploring
can see the vistas in front of me
follows my inner compass
enjoys the feel of nature beneath my feet
lets joy bubble up from within
I use the SoulCollage process to create archetype cards and receive the hidden messages they have for me.

I charged into the kitchen, scanning the counter for anything chocolate. The craving was deep in my bell, lik a bull horn screaming to me “Chocolate, chocolate and NOW!” Has that ever happened to you? What is really going on and what does it mean to you?
If you need to refresh, rejuvenate or align your chakras schedule a crystal bed light infusion session.
You guessed it, that happened to me and I have to share the story and the Soul message I received on this one with you.
I walk everyday along the waterway near my home. Usually the walk begins with me finding that still place within and then I get fully present and begin to hear the birds chirping, feel the cool air kiss the skin on my face, and notice peace within. I stay present and take in the beauty of nature and life around me.
This day was different. There were construction workers doing some concrete work to the waterway. One guy with a hard hat was driving a small tractor with a load of wet concrete in the front loader on the trail. I saw orange cones marking a space for him and another worker directing him.
Of course I was looking at the tractor and the load of concrete. I was curious about what was happening “over there”. I was focused on everything outside of myself.
And then it happened. I stepped in dog poop. I did not see it and walked right into it. Still unaware of what I had done I kept rubber necking to see what they were doing.
After I passed the workers I got a message to check my shoes. Yep, there it was squished into the waffle soles of my athletic shoes. “Oh no” I said out loud, “not dog poop”.
I started to chuckle as I thought about what had happened. When I became present to myself again there was a Soul message for me. When I am not present to myself and focus on everything outside of myself, I end up stepping in “it”.
It was a great learning moment for me to remember to be present to myself when doing everything. Nobody likes stepping in “it”.
