Every woman is born with a palette of healthy archetypes – The Girl, The Lover, The Chatelaine, and the Queen. Balance in this ancient code of womanhood brings along a balanced and wholesome life. Unfortunately, women often fall from the healthy archetypes to their shadow forms possessing either too much or too little of that particular energy.
Archetypes and the shadow archetypes are like angels and demons of the female psyche. I wrote „The Art of Being a Woman” in hope that by acknowledging the shadows and expressing the healthy archetypes women can look at themselves from a new perspective and change their lives for better.
Couldn’t some just be wise Queens, others happy Girls, homely Chatelaines or sensual Lovers? The answer is simple – the better a woman integrates her archetypes, the better she masters different situations in her life. In addition, every woman possesses all four archetypes anyway. If these are not manifested in their healthy forms, the shadow forms crawl to the stage. Long-term exposure to the shadows, however, is exhausting to any woman and/or the people around her.
There is a story that God created a man, then looked at him and said, “I can do better”. And crafted a woman. A powerful woman is the finest masterpiece of divine creation. How can you live your life so that the divine source in you wouldn’t dry up? So that the spark wouldn’t dim and you would grow your power with age? So that this power would feed your self-esteem and relations? How can you live your life to masterpiece? Read the book and you will find out.
