More on Archetypes

Discovering Unconscious Patterns

“Why did I do that, again!?”

“How is it everything is suddenly going my way?”

“What’s this constant drive pushing me to exhaustion?”

“What kind of job would I really like?”

At one time or another, we all ask ourselves questions like these.

We don’t always know why we do what we do. In the stories of our lives, we often find ourselves in roles we didn’t even realize we chose to play. These roles or characters are called archetypes.

People go through life drawing from a repertoire of instinctive roles: father, mother, child, lover, creator, warrior, victim, seeker, caregiver, and an untold number of others. There are as many archetypes as there are typical situations in life. We can evoke any one of them in the stories of our lives.

Often the characteristics of a certain archetype fit a particular situation or challenge. But sometimes we’re like the proverbial hammer that sees only nails, applying the same solution even when the situation demands a different approach. Blind to other options, we often operate unconsciously. Music, used consciously, can inspire the needed awakening shift.
