|Your God art journal spread, using a quote from the book 'Caleb's Crossing'|
Yesterday for our final class of the term, we each picked a card from Caroline Myss's archetype deck. I suggested to my students to have a question in mind such as "What is coming into my life?" as they picked their card.
It wasn't until we were all seated, looking at our cards, that I remembered when you ask for something to be shown, there is a good possibility that the answer can be a little uncomfortable. One student picked the addict card, another the gossip card - both qualities that most people share but not really what you want to hear about yourself.
The news is not necessarily bad, but if it was something that fit comfortably in with our present image of ourself, we would probably already be aware of it and not need that card to show itself.
I got the priest archetype card . That was uncomfortable. The nun or monk archetype I am familiar with. The priest has a responsibility and power that I find unsettling.
