At the beginning of each week, continue to take The Archetype quiz to find out which of your Archetype needs some attention.
This time we will be including tree allies with your work with your Archetype.
As you dive deeper into The ART of Being a Witch, working with your Archetypes will continue to support you to assimilate, re-balance, and activate all that you’re learning, un-learning.
Her charatceristics will support you connect to and support your awakening self.
Once you’ve identified which of your Archetypes wants your attention, there are two things to do each day – this will take you about 10-15 minutes.
You can even do both of these at the same time.
Then after 7-days, take the quiz again and see if your energy has changed.
It may stay the same, or another Archetype may have come forward to support you.
Both are fine.
Then do the same for the next 7-days. Listening to the meditation and working with your tree ally.
Continue to do this for the time you are working through The ART of Being a Witch.
* Once you’ve taken the quiz, you’ll be redirected to a page that has the Archetype Meditation on, ‘bookmark’ the page, so you can find the meditation again with ease.
You will receive access to the relevant Archetypes guidebook with suggestions on your current activated strengths and challenges.
You’ll also get access to the energy clearing meditation to support and balance the relevant Archetype for you.
Each week when you take the Archetype Quiz, you’ll find out which of your Archetypes is in need of some balance.
During the ALIGN stage you looked at grounding your energy with crystals.
During the RESET stage you looked at working with the energy of flowers.
As you TRANSFORM, ground, and stabilise your new energy and a new way of being in the world, you’ll be working with the trees as they support you.
The trees will help you deepen your roots and reach (your branches) far and wide.
Below are some suggestions of trees that you can use for the Archetype identified by the quiz, however you can choose to use any tree that is calling you and that Archetype.
Look over the list, take a couple of deep, centring breaths, and with one hand over your heart and one hand over your energetic womb-space, ask yourself, and the relevant Archetype, which tree the Archetype wants to work with.
This may be a tree from the list below, or something completely different.
Trust yourself and use the tree you feel called to use.
The ‘typical’ symbolism for the tree may not make logical sense to you, but trust yourself and your body to know what you need.
