WITH ARCHETYPES GET GUIDING MYTHS
In All-Chakra meditation, nature walks or everyday life, you
experience the spiritual. You may love and feel oneness with all
people and things; have peak experiences. You get ecstatic
rushes, visions. Perhaps you sense your psychic powers, see
Maybe you meet archetypal guides, gods or extraterrestrials. You
could sense yourself and everything in the cosmos as aspects of
the Creative Force.
Spiritual visions, feelings and insights free you, make you more
present. Cleansed, you drop grandiose drives. You empathize
more, enjoy people's differences. And relish nature. Spiritual
experiences let you view yourself and your experiences as part
of a divine plan.
[Maslow, A., The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, NY: Penguin,
When you peak, you experience your High Self: clear, joyous,
loving, blissful, timeless, absorbed, accepting, delighted,
fascinated, at-one with the world.
You may peak when you orgasm, deliver, marry or revive. Or
dance, hike, climb, run, swim, dive, sail, bike, ski, skate,
row, paddle. Or enjoy a spectacular sight, achieve insights, or
feel oneness with God. Or even wash dishes or live any aspect of
your life with total appreciation.
The rite below suggests you integrate the qualities of peak
experiences you've had into your everyday life.
Relive a peak you had. See, hear, feel, relive; taste, smell,
Re-experience the central quality of your peak.
Say a word or phrase that captures the quality (e.g., clarity,
power, love, peace, bliss) of your peak.
Imagine you radiate this quality to someone. Now radiate it to
your community. To the world.
PERSONIFY YOUR GROUP
Subcultures, ethnic groups, social classes and sexual categories
have diverse customs and linguistic charts of reality: they
thereby have unique contributions for humanity. You grow by
accepting the worth of your subcultures and those of others.
Holotropic Breathing, psychedelic journeying and meditation may
let you identify with the consciousness of such groups.
First, consciously identify with your own group's distinctness.
Next, accept the distinctness of other groups. Reflect on your
group from their perspectives.
Let the various ethnic and cultural groups dialogue in your mind
until you realize you are a consciousness that includes them
The exercise below is best done with several partners.
Recall the history of your people (subculture, class or sexual
category). lmagine their struggles, challenges and experiences
from the beginning until now. Realize how they changed and how
they stayed the same. Notice their special gifts.
Be aware of what you, as the personification of your group's
heritage and experience, have to contribute to humanity.
Tell the others what you are like, what you want what you really
need, and what you have to give the species. As the spirit of
your people, speak earnestly with representatives of other
ethnic, class and sexual categories.
As the spirit of your group, state your existence and potential
contributions to humanity. Say how you can cooperation better
with other groups.

Ancient records from Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Middle East and
India indicate astronauts from a technologically advanced planet
mapped Earth and established a mining colony on Earth around
450,000 years ago. They genetically engineered our species, homo
sapiens, 300,000 years ago to be their lulus–miners, laborers,
To make lulus, three astronaut-scientists–Ea (also know as Enki
and Ptah), Ninti (Hathor /Ninharsag) and Ningishzidda (Thoth/Quetzlcoatl)--grafted
their genes onto those of our homo erectus ancestors (who’d
evolved on Earth and would’ve evolved toward the astronauts’
The astronauts came from Nibiru, the long- (3,600 year),
reverse-orbiting tenth planet in our solar system. Niburan
astronauts--tall, blond, long-lived humans--were technologically
a few decades ahead of where we now are in terms of space
travel, weaponry, astronomy, geology and biology. They used the
lulus for sexual servants and even mates. At one point, the
astronauts who ran the orbit craft mutinied, came to Earth, and
took earthling lulu brides by force. Yahweh/Enlil, the
patriarchal Commander of Earth, was enraged.
13, 000 years ago, the astronauts determined that Nibiru’s
return to Earth’s sector, would dump the Antarctic Icecap into
the sea and cause global innundation, Yahweh ordered the
astronauts off-planet, and swore them to allow the flood to kill
off the homo sapiens. Enki defied Yahweh and left a computer
message for Noah (know also as Atra, Utnapishtim and Ziusudra),
teach him how to build a sub\ and supply him with genetic starts
and a sub pilot to take him to Mt. Arafat in 120 days.
Returning to a ruined Earth, Yahweh and the Council gave
Yahweh’s clan Iraq, Iran, Anatolia and Greece. Enki and his clan
Egypt, Inanna (Ishtar, Kali, Shakti India, and Ninti Canaan and
the Sinai). The astronauts ruled through homo sapien and mixed
homo sapien sapien and homo erectus kings. Foremen/kings ran
cities, castles, harems, canals, mines, orchards, herds, farms,
trade, construction, etc for the god/head-of-an-astronaut-clan
of the area. Humans were no longer just servants of powerful
masters, they were now servants of gods ruling them though
kings. Our hybrid ancestors were conditioned to serve a king,
who, in tern, served a god or goddess.
Most of the world’s traditions teach unconditional, unthinking
obedience to king and god. Yahweh’s general, Abraham, modeled
blind compliance to his all-powerful, merciless, woman-hating,
patriarchal rageaholic commander. Abraham, at Yahweh’s command,
sent his concubine and first son to die in the desert and
started to plunge a knife into the heart of his second son. What
centered person would do such horrid things, even with the death
threat Yahweh always posed to his servants?
Inanna started the female liberation movement and the use of
transcendent sexuality to break free of the patriarchal,
violent, hierarchical, warlike male dominator consciousness. The
exercise below will help you extend Inanna’s revolution to the
metamorphosis of our species to an awareness that of an
existence other than God’s unquestioning servant and slave.
Become the lulu, Obedient Servant of Yahweh. As God’s Servant,
how do you influence your person? How do you contribute to her
or him? For what do you want your person to appreciate you for?
What, Servant, do you want? Why do you want that? If you totally
controlled your person, how would he or she live. What
personality parts within your person do you oppose?
Disidentify with your inner Servant of God and center yourself.
What did you learn from identifying with and then disidentifying
with this subself.
* Relate to the ideas that a.) the gods were technologically
superior astronauts--not morally superior deities--and that b.)
we have inculcated slave subselves as a result of our slavish
deferment to the astronauts.

and Johnson, R., Inner Work (Harper and Row, 1986).]
Invoke an archetype--an image from humanity's mind. Whatever
archetype you get stands for a force in you and everyone else,
Maybe you'll see Christ, Oprah or Spiderman. Take what you
get--an image from meditation, breathwork, a dream, movie,
novel, fairytale, sacred text, tarot, nature or fantasy. Or you
may represent one of your moods, worries, mind-loops or
compulsions. If a trait of your mate irks you, the trait may
show up as an archetype.
Ask the image you get who it is, what it wants and why, what
it'd like to show you. Accept its answers and the story it
shows--even things you dislike or don't understand.
Express your feelings to it. Tell it if it reminds you of a
person, event or dream. If it says to do something in your head,
do. If it suggests an ethical, reasonable outward activity, do
But if the archetype suggests something destructive or extreme,
refuse and say why. Tell it that--whereas its world's
eternal--you've committed to fairness and justice, to serve
people, to love and relate to family, friends in the present
world. You need to express all your aspects. You have to listen
to other archetypes too and keep your practical life together.
Archetypes are predispositions of all people to enact certain
roles. Archetypes (like Earth personified, hero, prophet,
mother, wise one, and guardian) are potentials. You give them
specific content from your experience.
You may not realize you are motivated by an archetype when, for
example, you follow a political leader who seems to be a hero.
You are responding to the projection of your own heroic
Archetypes, common to whole cultures and all humanity, are
internal models, like genetic potentials, based on the
personalities and the very genes of the rulers of ancient Sumer
as they and their descendants peopled and asserted influence
over the territories of the planet. To this day, entire nations
unconsciously act out archetypal patterns, such as judge or

Have a partner give you the directions below.
Sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. With each
breath, relax more.
CALL TO ADVENTURE.
Imagine you hear a voice softly
calling you from once- upon-a-time.
You’re drawn by it to a safe, private place, perhaps one you
knew as a child. There are pleasant scents here. It has a door
leading to the wondrous realm. Open the door and see the steps
down. Grasp the rail and step onto the smooth wooden steps.
Descend ten steps to the landing. With each step, relax more.
With each, breathe more deeply.
Get in a boat at the landing. Curl up on cushions in the boat.
Feel safe and drowsy as the boat gently rocks and drifts. It

Encounter a creature or force
who will help you pass the guardian. Recount aloud your meeting
with your helper. Use the present tense.
[Note to guiding partner: Give your partner plenty of time to
fantasize. Take at least ten deep breaths after your partner's
last utterance before you give the next cue.]
Approach the gate and its
Shift roles and become the guardian. State your existence,

Now become yourself and
confront the guardian. Get aid from your helper.

Defeat or conciliate the guardian and go alive (or lose, die and
go dead) into the realm. Relate your journey.

greatest imaginable test. BOON. Gain the reward, take the boon.
If you are blessed by the
powers, go under their protection. If not, flee, encountering
obstacles. At the threshold, leave behind the powers of the
realm and re-emerge with your boon.
Find the boat drifted on the beach. Get in and fall deeply
asleep. Become dimly aware that the tide is rising, lifting and
gently rocking the boat. Know that you are safe as the boat
drifts back to the landing. Go up the steps to the sanctuary.
Become the boon, the gift you
have brought back to the world. Say what you’re like–state your
existence– as boon. Tell humanity your significance.
Now become yourself again, deeply relaxed. As I count from ten
to one, become increasingly alert. Ten, nine, eight-you are
becoming more alert. Seven, six five, four-get ready to be wide
awake. Three', feel relaxed and refreshed. Two, feel alert and
wonderful. One-WAKE UP.
What comments do you have on his experience?
What as boon, is your significance to humanity?
In what ways are you the guardian-obstacle, ally-helper, dark
powers and boon?
Archetypes symbolize your universal human potentials. Respect
the expression of archetypes in your life. Integrate their power
into your expanding self-sense. Meet the rivals of the
archetypes you befriend. When you get to know this opponent too,
you realize both are equally parts of you.
You learn much by noticing which archetype is emerging for you
nowadays. Infer which is coming up from the themes in your life
now or from a dream, problem or experience you have again and

Grasp the bigger picture; rise above the particulars you
experienced. Pain punctures your complacency so you can prune
your patterns. Let wounding waken you.

Symbols and metaphors turn trauma to transformation. Sacred saga
stimulates spiritual ascent.
Relive major emotional hurts in your life, how you suffered from
conception till now. Recall when the womb, birth, illness or
accident hurt you. Review times someone invaded, abused, raped,
tortured or robbed you. Feel again when you lost trust, job,
home, status, fortune, marriage, family, sanity, self-esteem,
See the effects--good and bad--of each injury. What did you want
in each situation? Find the motifs threaded through them.
Retell the history of your hurts again as a hero-myth.
Instead of saying "I," speak of a mystical child, god, animal,
plant, another person or being on another planet. Include a call
to adventure, guides, ordeal, reward, maturity-gain. Start with,
"Once upon a time ..."
Forgive the people and forces who hurt or betrayed you.
Resolve the story in way that helps the hero and the world.
Fathom the moral of the fable, the purpose of the pain.
Next time you hurt, make it epic. Evoke an archetypal pattern
that gives your personal loss meaning: growth for you, your
group and the globe.

Journey: Experiences, Origins, and Analogues," ReVision 12:2,
The shaman served humanity since the Old Stone Age. The
shaman--an otherwise ordinary farmer or hunter--sent his or her
soul journeying into an alternate reality to heal other people.
The shaman's still an archetypal part of you. The shaman in you
comes out in holotropic work.
It's easier to take a shamanic journey in an All-Chakra Tantric
Temple meditation than it was in the Old Stone days. To take a
shaman's journey, you attend lectures, watch slides, maybe miss
a meal. Then you lie back and listen to majestic music. You
return and share your visions with others.
But if you'd been a traditional shaman, you'd have fasted,
stayed awake, skipped sex. Then you'd drum, rattle, dance, chant
yourself into a trance. In some societies, you'd take a
Tantric or traditional, when you're a shaman, you go into a
trance. You meet power-animals, guardians, teachers, guides, the
dead. They give you riddles, advice and visions of the future.
You encounter animal and nature spirits and feel how their
You go down into the lower world, rise to the upper or glide
through the ordinary world with extra-ordinary power.
Animal, plant or natural forces guide you down the roots of the
world tree (or central axis). You meet lost souls and angry
spirits and, though your guide helps you, the spirits may rip
you apart or eat you.
Then natural creatures or forces revive and repair you. They
give you new powers and return you to everyday life to cure or
ease the dying of others.
When you enter the upper world you climb a tree, peak or
rainbow. Or you fly as a bird. Flora, fauna, humans and spirits
in the upper world mirror your gifts or unconscious subselves.
The denizens of this realm tell you ways to heal yourself and
others, ways fix relationships too. They show you how to help
Sometimes, on a shamanic journey, you stay here, in the middle
world, but your soul travels in space and time. You see what's
useful for you, others and the world.
Whether you go to the lower, upper or middle worlds, when you
return, you remember anything. In the days to follow, you share
what you remember. And you chop wood or go to the office. Here's
a rite for you to sample or deepen shamanic imaging before or
after tantra temple work.
Play Journey of the Drums (or other shamanic drum music)
while you lie on your back, eyes closed.
Imagine you've abstained from sex all week. You fasted, alone
and awake, two days. Late this afternoon you steamed two hours
in the sweatlodge, then jumped in the river. Now, as dark
descends, you sit in the ceremonial hut, feeling the psychedelic
you took at sunset coming on.
Your costumed and masked buddies and kin drum, shake rattles,
click sticks, ring bells, dance, chant, support you.
To focus as you enter your trance, ask yourself:
What friends or relatives need help healing--bodily, emotionally
How do I want to help my community or the world?
What soul of the dead would be valuable to contact?
How do I need healing?
What perplexes me? What challenges me?
Find yourself transported to a cave, peak or tree--someplace in
nature where you can access the shamanic realm.
Encounter an Ally--a friendly animal, plant, spirit or force.
The Ally helps you descend into the lower world, climb, fly or
ride the a rainbow into the upper. Perhaps your Ally shows you
how to send your soul through time and space on this world.
Confront the Guardian of the lower, middle or upper world.
Identify with the Guardian, empathize with it. As it, block the
shaman; overcome him or her. Or feel the shaman overcome you.
Be the Shaman again. Experience yourself--surviving or
dismembered--reach your destination.
Meet a great power there.
Merge with this power. Notice what you're like it.
Be Shaman again and tell the power what you seek, your
Be the power and answer. Give the shaman experiences, visions,
advice, commands, objects, information.
Take the shaman role again. Return to your clan; remembering all
you experienced in the shamanic realm.
Translate what you learned on your journey into the life of the
Return to modern times and your present body. Think of specific
ways you can use what you learned in this rite.

As you reflect on your life through archetypal "images common to
mankind" your awareness becomes "more universal." You live as
the transpersonal witness, an archetype impartially yet
compassionately witnessing "the stream of events both inside and
outside the mind-body in a creatively detached fashion."
Center yourself. Hear the chatter of your subselves. Feel the
dialectic of mind and body. Feel your heartspace with your
intimates. Imagine yourself to a creative gathering place for an
assembly of humans, a beam of compassion reaching out from your
family and friends to all people, to creatures and to the Earth.
Then slowly say each of these sentences aloud several times.
I have subselves and social masks which I wear when I choose.
Since I am aware of choosing, I must be more than my roles. I
have subselves and I am not my subselves.
I have a mind, a total personality which I can think and intuit.

I have a whole, completely unified bodymind, capable of

that I must be more than my bodymind. I have a bodymind; I am
not a bodymind.

of extending my care concern and self-concept to others, I who
am aware must be more than my social consciousness. I have
social consciousness and I am not social consciousness.
I am the witness. I observe the flow of what is, the interplay
of subpersonalities, the embrace of body and personality, the
bonding of separate bodyminds into couples, the networking of
humanity. I see the mythical, poetic and miraculous. "I am the
As witness, truthfully and lovingly see, feel and hear the life

From your witness perspective receive God, manifest in symbols
acceptable to you (Christ, Buddha, Burning Bush, Ninharsag,
Voice, Presence, Etcetera). Use this symbol to transform your
consciousness by living more and more from the spiritual breadth
the symbol represents.
[ Inspired by Wilber, K., The Spectrum of Consciousness
Theosophical Publishing, 1977.]
See, hear, feel and intuit an archetypal expression of God.
Allow the deity to take form. Identify with the 'vibrantly alive
radiance" of this final archetype of your essential nature. As
God, reabsorb the witness, the world, the hero, the socially
enmeshed person, the organism, the personality parts of the
student who has sought you in this exercise.
What was your experience when you identified with God? What is
your existence as the archetypal deity?
Once you know the deity archetype is only a symbol, you
realizelit is disunifying. It is separate from what it stands
for. You are higher than the top story.
Detach from the embodied, envisioned, sound of the archetypal
deity into formlessness. There’s no god-archetype, there is no
student, "there is no awareness of the absence of these. There
is only radiance. All prior levels, of themselves, arise moment
to moment in an iridescent play of mutual interpenetration."
