It’s ridiculous that we think we are only “one way.”
Like when someone says, “I could never release an album. I am just not that good.”
Why do we limit ourselves? We get these stories in our heads, and before we know it, we build our identity around it.
This last week I have been thinking about this while I go through my own changes. I have felt a little stuck after the successful launch of the HeroRise Masculine Archetype Deck. I did a reading last week to inquire. It’s a great illustration of using Archetypes.
The first card I pulled was the Addict. I instantly knew what it meant.
When you launch a big project, it is a marathon. Any given week, I was emailing hundreds of people. I was talking with marketing professionals, updating backers, and was constantly putting out fires.
You’d think I would be glad it was over.
But something inside me still craves it.
I felt alive and at the edge of my seat. If I kept up that lifestyle, I would start spiraling out of control. The Addict was a reminder to evaluate my desires, whether they are moving me towards balance or spiraling me down.
I then pulled the Refusal to Change.
Felt like it smacked me in the face.
It spoke to how growth opportunities have been coming up in my intimate relationships and when I have coward from them. Thanks, cards… I get it.
The last card was the Father, which is the energy I am moving towards. It gave me the hope to move forward. It is reminding me to be more open with abundance and look to help others.
After doing this reading, I had a clearer picture of where I am emotionally and what can help me grow.
I’ve gained so much insight using these cards. It has helped me see my limiting beliefs and the stories I am stuck in.
I wanted to make this type of work accessible, so I created a free “Pull a Card Website.” The webpage includes a One-card reading and a three-card option.
It’s a great way to start exploring how the Masculine Archetype Deck shows up in your daily life. You could pull a card every morning to see how that energy expresses itself in the day or spend a moment contemplating a three-card reading to unlock ideas around something you are struggling with.
