Kristina, can you tell me more about what is Archetypal Consultant, what does it do, and what is the foundation theory they work with, and how that can be useful to other people?
Asked by Justas Janauskas
Thank you for the question.
We gain greater wisdom, clarity, power and esteem when we look at what’s running underneath the hood of our psyche. This way we can truthfully ask ourselves if we have access to the archetypes that we need to materialise an inspiration that’s paid us a visit. Can we make the necessary sacrifices to bring this inspiration into form? Or is this just more fantasy thinking?
[Just to clarify, archetypes are universal patterns of power in the human psyche/experience. They don’t just structure behaviour, but they also influence our imagination, perception, ideas and choices. Now it’s not to say that these universal patterns define us, but rather, they reveal us. Some examples are the Entrepreneur, Orphan Child, Damsel in Distress, Avenger, Dilettante, Beggar, Destroyer, Healer and Mentor.]
The benefit of an archetypal consultation is the opportunity to meet your challenges with a new team of archetypes (a crew of new power patterns) and the courage to not default to your old patterns of survival and adaptation. You’re empowered with awareness to make different choices and there’s greater flow in the movements of power through your psyche.
Knowing your patterns - why you do what you do - and having the ability to consciously make new choices moves you into greater alignment with other universal patterns (in the natural world, the wider cosmos etc.) so that you can live more authentically and be of greater service to the world. You move out of fate and can explore your destiny.

What is reality?
In my humble point of view just an itty bitty accident. Whatever the universe may be we are just it expiriencing itself. The brain just processes our surroundings and that we call life. There are physical laws that have to be followed so if you`d simulate the big bang a million times the outcome would be always the same. Everything that is going to happen already happened. Time is just an illusion and a way for our brains to process everything.
I am scared and sad, yet i don`t know why.
I hope you guys are doing well.
How the comfort zone is ruining your life?
🔸 #4 insight: Comfort zone
This is so known topic that I even doubted to write it. But the more I think about it, the more I understand how close and yet so far this topic is for me.
We all know that there are two groups for all the physical things we can do in our life:
- Inside the comfort zone: takes little or no effort to do, feels comfortable, no mental resistance. For example, for most of the people driving is completely in their comfort zone. They drive to work, shop, home. And since driving is so easy, at one point or another, your brain went and subconsciously placed it inside the comfort zone, so you don’t really think about doing it before you do it, it’s just something you do.
- Outside. Okay, how about going for a run? A lot harder, isn’t it? It’s more physically strenuous, requires more preparation, it makes you lose your breath or sweat, and if you haven’t ran for a while, you’ll probably be really sore the next day. And because you know running is physically strenuous and hard to do, your brain placed it outside the comfort zone. The further outside the comfort zone something is, the more mental resistance there is in the way of doing that thing.
Zone also always shrinking, if you don’t do anything about it. Unless you venture at least a little bit beyond the borders of the comfort zone, it will get smaller and harder to escape. And this is something that most people have experienced in their lives, whether they are aware of it or not.
In my own life this happens all the time, like when I was 18 and got my driving licence, I was so excited at that point, driving was so easy to me and felt very good about it. But since I had no car, lived in the city centre, my brain moved it outside the comfort zone and now I’m really afraid to do it. Of course, brain generates to me all necessary arguments: eco friendly, avoiding traffic jams, walking is good for you. In reality, I’m just staying away from what’s outside my comfort zone now.
This gets even more serious. You know that phrase “Men aren’t taking their health seriously”? I look at myself and I see that I feel more comfortable being sick, suffer pain than go to a doctor. This is because my brain tells me “this is something common, this will stop one day, think of all that wasted time, it will cost a lot, they can’t help anyway” instead of fixing situation I'm in.
Today my back was injured while playing volleyball. I was laying on my back at home in deep pain and wishing it would stop. Then, I started coughing. It made my back pain even worse, like needles crossing me with every cough. Then I realised I was coughing for 2 years already. This is not something new, it just wasn’t in the circle of something easily achievable.
I was so angry on this whole situation that my brain just wanted to cut it all now. Do something! And I did. Today I registered to check my back, my knees and elbows that were in pain from playing 5 times a week. And my coughing. And wrote this post that I was doubting about.
