    The Devotee
    Result Image
    Devotees are devoted and deeply committed to loving Divinity in whatever form in manifests the most strongly. For example, the source of devotion may be towards God, the Holy Mother, Goddess, Jesus, Shiva, Krishna, Buddha, Gaia or a beloved Guru.

    As you resonate the most with the Devotee archetype, you’ll be drawn towards the spiritual practices of worship, service, commitment, and heartfelt celebration of the Divine. You are passionately devoted to the search of finding your True Nature through the process of self-emptying. You feel the most spiritually supported when you are guided by an experienced teacher, guide (whether physical or nonphysical), mentor or guru. In more advanced levels of growth, Devotees are devoted to listening and honoring the voice within.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of your Devotee temperament is a tendency to reject, displace or ignore your Divine Essence in favor of worshiping another who is deemed to be “more spiritually advanced” than you. As a Devotee, you need to be cautious of the habit of focusing externally for support and guidance. Remember that guidance can also be found within your Heart and Soul. That which you are devoted to is inseparable from that which you truly are.

    The Sage


    Sages are wise philosophers at heart who seek to understand, and teach, the mysteries of existence. As a person who resonates the most with the Sage archetype, you love to collect knowledge that will help you to develop a deeper connection to the Divine. While you may spend years studying sacred texts, you are not content with simply an intellectual understanding of Divinity. You are profoundly attracted to the role of the Teacher or Guide who has embodied their wisdom into self-expression. Deep down, you hope to someday share your knowledge with others.

    As a Sage, you have the gift of articulating your insight through speaking or writing. While you enjoy analysis, abstract reasoning, ideas, theories, and philosophies, you feel the most fulfilled when you can transform them into your own teachings.

    At heart, you’re a seeker of wisdom through the vehicle of the mind.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of the Sage temperament can manifest as a tendency to lapse into dry intellectualization of the Divine, and therefore a disconnection from true spiritual experience. When the heart is not involved, the mind tends to dominate and limit the depths of spiritual realization to shallow interpretation. Sages can also abuse their positions of authority, particularly when they have developed “teacher” status. The abuse of power may manifest as a desire to control their followers or financially use those who support them. Alternatively, the abuse of power may appear as narcissism, especially if the Sage is elevated to the status of Guru.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Intelligent
    Witty
    Articulate
    Curious
    Wise
    Generous
    Lighthearted
    Charismatic

    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    Greedy
    Dry
    Manipulative
    Self-serving
    Spiritual Purpose: To become the embodiment of wisdom and share it with others.

    Existential Fear: To be ignorant, foolish, and spiritually deluded.

    Lesson to Learn: Knowledge without direct experience is empty. True wisdom is knowing that the mind is limited (“knowing that you know nothing” said Socrates). Love is the highest form of wisdom.

    Sage Totem: Owl; deception, wisdom, insight (the night eagle).

    Sage Crystal: Aquamarine; helps one to access one’s inner truth, promotes clear expression, courage, and emotional grounding.

    Sage Herb: Eyebright; improve memory, spiritual growth, clarity of mind, encourage rationality and increase positive outlook.

    Sage Mantra: Love guide me (What the hell?), wisdom humbles me (By all means).

    Famous Sages: Zarathustra, Socrates, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ken Wilber, Benjamin Franklin, Confucius, Maya Angelou, Rabindranath Tagore, Voltaire, Michel de Montaigne.

    Sages in Fiction: Yoda (Star Wars), Hecate (Greek mythology), Gandalf (Lord of the Rings), Baba Yaga (Slavic lore), Morpheus (The Matrix), Dumbledore (Harry Potter), Merlin (Arthurian lore).






    And so, the pens have been lifted and the ink has dried
    الخَيلُ وَاللَيلُ وَالبَيداءُ تَعرِفُني *** وَالسَيفُ وَالرُمحُ وَالقِرطاسُ وَالقَلَمُ
    Swift steeds, dreary nights, and the desolate wasteland, all know me full well
    As do the sword, the spear, the paper and the pen.

    Saints are compassionate nurturers of humanity. As a person who resonates the most with the Saint archetype, you value action as the highest form of love. To you, the Divine can best be felt through acts of benevolent service towards vulnerable and needy human beings, animals or even endangered forms of nature.

    At heart, you are a sensitive, charitable, and intensely warm hearted person. You can’t stand to see acts of injustice, abuse or neglect committed against life. To you, all of life is sacred, no matter how small, marginal or forsaken.

    You are the kind of person to take on the suffering of others and be the spokesperson for a movement or benevolent cause. You are the defender of the downtrodden, the protector of the abused, and the nurturer of the disowned. Dogma and spiritual theories mean nothing to you if they can’t be backed by loving action.

    Opening your heart to others is your personal religion.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of the Saint temperament can manifest as a tendency to become a martyr who sacrifices one’s own needs and even health, for others. While this may appear well-intentioned, there is nothing noble about self-neglect or self-abuse. Saint archetypes also have the tendency to spiritually bypass self-responsibility by projecting their own need for help onto others. In this instance, the Saint loses touch with the true needs of others and is blinded by his/her projection.

    Helping others can also be used by the Saint as fuel for egotism. When serving becomes more about being a “rescuer,” “savior” or “do-gooder,” the purity of aiding others becomes tainted.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Compassionate
    Benevolent
    Humanitarian
    Gentle
    Loving
    Proactive
    Practical
    Loyal
    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    Delusional
    Smug
    Self-righteous
    Egotistical
    Self-abusing
    Spiritual Purpose: To express love through service to others.

    Existential Fear: To forsake those who need help; to be useless.

    Lesson to Learn: An empty cup cannot satisfy other’s thirst; you must take care of yourself so that you can genuinely take care of others. Self-love is an act of respect towards yourself and other people.

    Saint’s Totem: Deer; gentleness, caring, kindness, ability to sacrifice for the higher good.

    Saint’s Crystal: Rose Quartz; gentle energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, love and nourishment.

    Saint’s Herb: Holy Basil; healing, stress relief, and compassion.

    Saint’s Mantra: When I nurture myself, I also nurture others.

    Famous Saints: St Francis of Assisi, St Joan of Arc, St Quiteria, Mother Teresa, Dalai Lama, Helen Keller, Thich Nhat Hanh, Hunter Patch Adams.

    Saints in Fiction: Robin Williams (Patch Adams), Will Smith (Seven Pounds), Ben Kingsley (Gandhi), Olivia Hussey (Mother Teresa), Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side).

    The Mystic

    Mystics love experiencing first-hand the blissful Union of Divinity. As you resonate the most with the Mystic archetype, you will be drawn towards transcending the ego and melting the boundaries between “you” and Infinite Consciousness. As a deeply sensitive, intuitive, and perceptive person, you have always sensed that there is something “beyond” the ordinary. Therefore, the pursuit of earthly pleasures such as fame, status, and riches has never appealed to you to the same extent as it does to others.

    As a Mystic, you yearn for wisdom, love, and the ultimate freedom that comes from merging with your True Nature. You are devoted to exploring the Mystery that is life and inviting the presence of the Divine into your everyday life. To you, the ultimate achievement in life is the unio mystica, the spiritual marriage between the self and the Soul.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of the Mystic temperament can manifest as a selfish hoarding of hidden truths, egocentrism – especially if mystical experiences are used to inflate the ego and make it more “special,” and intellectual dryness – particularly if the search for truth doesn’t include cultivating a Heart connection. When not grounded in the necessary function of logic, Mystics can become impulsive, fickle, and flaky. Also, when not properly grounded, the Mystic temperament can also lose touch with reality.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Sensitive
    Perceptive
    Intuitive
    Wise
    Receptive
    Open-minded
    Loving

    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    Egotistical
    Ungrounded
    Dry
    Impulsive
    Airy-fairy

    Spiritual Purpose: Transcending the ego and uniting with the Divine.

    Existential Fear: Being completely isolated from the Divine in the mundaneness and emptiness of daily life.

    Lesson to Learn: Spiritual experiences must be emotionally, psychologically, and physically integrated into daily life for real growth to occur. The heart and mind must be balanced. There is no true separation between “you” and God/Divine.

    Mystic’s Totem: Snake; shedding skin as a constant rebirth and transformation.

    Mystic’s Crystal: Labradorite; assists in moving into alternate levels of consciousness and vibration, helping one to consciously 'move between the worlds.'

    Mystic’s Herb: Elderberry; elder tree has a long history connected to ancient mysticism, the spirit of this tree was known as “Elder Mother” for its powerful transformative energy.

    Mystics Mantra: There is no separation, I am One with God.

    Famous Mystics: Pythagoras, Helena Blavatsky, Joseph Campbell, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Eckhart Tolle, Thomas Merton, Alan Watts.

    Mystics in Fiction: Eriq Ebouaney (Lumumba), The Seventh Seal, David Lee Smith (The Man from Earth), Bruno Ganz (Wings of Desire), Dôgen (Zen), G.I. Gurdjieff (Meetings with Remarkable Men).

    The Ascetic
    Result Image

    Also known as the “Yogi” in Eastern spiritual tradition, Ascetics are dedicated to experimenting with, mastering, and obtaining higher states of consciousness. As an Ascetic, you are extremely self-disciplined and pride yourself in actively practicing your ideals and heartfelt beliefs. Your spiritual practices almost always involve some degree of abstinence or rigorous training. Whether mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually, you pursue purer and profounder states of being in all that you do. As an Ascetic, you are particularly drawn to practices that induce alternate states of consciousness (ASCs) or higher states of consciousness (HSC) such as energetic breathing techniques, types of meditation, mantras, yogic postures, sleep alteration, special diets (fasting, veganism, etc.), and so forth. For you, self-discipline, abstinence, sobriety or chasteness are often chosen pathways to experiencing Unity.

    Shadow Side:

    The biggest issues for Ascetic spiritual archetypes involve obsessive compulsion with attaining higher states, excessive self-denial to the point of illness, and a disconnection from the heart. Don’t mistake disciplined practice for the experience of spirituality itself. The energy loss that results in various extreme forms of self-denial can also lead to a dry, austere, and joyless life. Ensure that you lighten up from time to time, and make space to connect with your Heart in a playful manner. Work must always be balanced with play.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Introspective
    Disciplined
    Strong-Willed
    Rigorous
    Determined
    Devotional
    Passionate

    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    Obsessive-Compulsive
    Serious
    Mind-oriented
    Austere
    Inflexible
    Harsh

    Spiritual Purpose: Finding purity and Oneness in life through self-discipline.

    Existential Fear: Living a life of meaningless pleasure.

    Lesson to Learn: Your thoughts influence your reality. There is no wrong way to do things. Balance mind-centered work with heart-centered play.

    Ascetic's Totem: Shark; survival, conservation and adaptability.

    Ascetic's Crystal: Black tourmaline; for inner strength, grounding, and enhancing endurance.

    Ascetic's Herb: Ginkgo Biloba; mental clarity and strength of mind.

    Ascetic's Mantra: My power comes from within.

    Famous Ascetics: Jesus of Nazareth, Francis of Assisi, Helena of Adiabene, Evagrius Ponticus, al-Junayd, al-Qushayrī, Miriam of Tadmor.

    Ascetics in Fiction: Claudio Brook (Simon of the Desert), Pyotr Mamonov (Ostrov), Shashi Kapoor (Siddhartha), Rachel Weisz (Agora), Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring.

    The Prophet

    Prophets communicate messages from the realm of Spirit to humanity. As you resonate the most with the Prophet archetype, you will have the gift of channelling and enlightening humanity with sacred knowledge. Whether through metaphysical gifts such as “second sight,” mediumship and clairsentience, or through practices such as self-hypnosis, you are able to gain insight from spirit guides, angels, nature spirits, ancestral souls or Consciousness itself for the benefit of others.

    In this world, you serve as a vessel or open channel through which wise, profound, predictive, and crucial guidance can be accessed. Traditionally, the Prophet often merges with the ancient archetype of the Shaman in the ability to enter the Spirit World and communicate with etheric beings. The difference is that the Prophet brings back knowledge and gives it away freely, whereas the Shaman generally holds onto this knowledge for the purposes of healing.

    In essence, you are a Divine Messenger who is skilled at receiving, understanding, and expressing the sacred mysteries to humankind.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of the Prophet temperament can manifest as egotistic self-inflation, and on the opposite end of the scale, self-abasement and the lowering of one’s self-worth. On one hand, those with Prophet temperaments can become overly identified with their particular form of Spirit guidance, leading to a holier-than-thou approach to other people. Such an approach can eventually lead to a God Complex. On the other hand, receiving divine transmissions can result in the devaluation of one’s own wisdom in favor of external guidance. This kind of spiritual codependence results in profound disempowerment and an inability to access one’s own inner Guide. Selling one’s gifts merely for monetary gain or status may also result, as well as altering the messages received to make them more “appealing” to those listening.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Skilled communicator
    Humble
    Receptive
    Open
    Expressive
    Intuitive
    Intelligent
    Honest
    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    Low self-worth
    Egotistical
    Codependent
    Self-serving
    Dishonest
    Spiritual Purpose: To serve as a Divine Messenger.

    Existential Fear: To be an untruthful “fraud”; disconnected from the Divine.

    Lesson to Learn: Spiritual wisdom must be communicated with honesty and integrity. The best guidance comes from within one’s own Soul.

    Prophet’s Totem: Eagle; the embodiment of vision and freedom.

    Prophet’s Crystal: Azurite; opens the third eye and crown chakras, stimulating intuitive ability and aligning inner vision to higher guidance.

    Prophet’s Herb: Lavender; deeper vision and intuitive insights.

    Prophet’s Mantra: I open my heart to love, I open my mind to wisdom.

    Famous Prophets: Ezekiel, Moses, Muhammad, Baha’u’llah, Jesus of Nazareth, Zoroaster, G.I. Gurdjieff.

    Prophets in Fiction: Reese Witherspoon (Pleasantville), Robert De Niro (The Mission), George (Meetings with Remarkable Men), The Passion of the Christ, The Ten Commandments.

    Never thought I'd end up being a Prophet someday...

    One of the few quizzes that's actually been true of me:

    The Rebel

    For the sake of true freedom, Rebels detach themselves from anything perceived to be untruthful, naive or spiritually misleading. As a person who resonates the most with the Rebel archetype, you are at the deepest level, a truth seeker. Your capacity to be a deeply insightful freethinker is what enables you to see through the illusions, myths, and outdated ideologies created by the mind, and into truth and reality.

    As a Rebel, you enjoy challenging the status quo, exploding dogmas, and exposing corruption. Your fiery desire to reveal the truth at all costs is what makes you so loved and at the same time so feared by others. You are the bringer of death to old paradigms just as you are the bringer of life to new ways of living.
    Your ability to see through, challenge, reject, uproot, and expose limiting beliefs, traditions, and ways of life makes you a powerful force of change in the world. Spiritually, your ability to see the truth is what endows you with immense wisdom and sacred understanding so often lacked by others.

    Shadow Side:
    The dark side of the Rebel temperament can manifest as anarchy, rejection of all legitimate authority, egotistical individualism, and empty cynicism. The Rebel Archetype can easily fall into the trap of living an angry, argumentative, and bull-headed existence. Too much fire can result in the creation of deep rifts between the Rebel and others. Remember, not everyone is ready to hear the truth. Mistrust and sneering misanthropy may result if the Rebel doesn’t connect to the Heart. Also, if the Rebel is misguided, their perception of “truth” may be false and misleading, especially if forced onto others tyrannically.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.
    Honest
    Perceptive
    Passionate
    Assertive
    Intelligent
    Insightful
    Open-minded
    Rational

    Weaknesses:
    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.
    Cynical
    Anarchic
    Argumentative
    Angry
    Arrogant

    Spiritual Purpose: To find the truth and rebel against false paradigms.

    Existential Fear: To live in illusion and belief a lie.

    Lesson to Learn:
    Truth is not only perceived by the mind, but is also felt with the heart. Freedom is what occurs when you transcend the limitations of the mind.

    Rebel’s Totem: Lion; power of the feminine energy and leadership.

    Rebel’s Crystal: Sunstone; dispelling fears and strength of wisdom in leadership.

    Rebel’s Herb: Black Cohosh; courage, protection, and strength.

    Rebel’s Mantra: In my Soul, I am already free.

    Famous Rebel’s: Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Aung San Suu Kyi, Muhammad Yunus, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Cesar Chavez.

    Rebel’s in Fiction: Tyler Durden (Fight Club), Liam Neeson (Schindler's List), Kevin Costner (Robin Hood), Kirk Douglas (Spartacus), Neo (The Matrix), Katniss (Hunger Games).

Instead, you prefer to find (or create) a monastic or intentional community that shares the same meaningful beliefs, dreams, and objectives as you.

    As a person who deeply values human connection, you feel the most emotionally and spiritually healthy when you’re surrounded by like-minded people. You thrive the best when you’re leading, or part of, a soul tribe.

    Because you love being surrounded by others who share your values, there is the tremendous opportunity for you to develop agape, or unconditional love.

    Shadow Side:

    The dark side of the Cenobite archetype is a tendency to become too dependent on other people for one’s spiritual nourishment. This unhealthy dependency can lapse into needy, complicated, and co-dependent relationships with others.

    Cenobites may also have the tendency to give in to mindless “groupthink” by allowing others to make their decisions. Conformity and the sacrificing of one’s needs and dreams may also result in communal situations.

    Strengths:

    These strengths are developed when you’re open, aware, and internally balanced.

    Loving
    Loyal
    Caring
    Helpful
    Easy Going
    Reliable
    Selfless
    Hospitable

    Weaknesses:

    These weaknesses arise when you become unmindful, imbalanced, and spiritually stagnant.

    People-pleasing
    Co-dependency
    Conformism
    Self-martyrdom
    Self-neglecting
    Materialism
    Spiritual Purpose: To find Oneness through the unity with others.

    Existential Fear: Being isolated from others; losing yourself in lonely self-absorption.

    Lesson to Learn: In focusing on others we come to understand ourselves. “I am because you are” (Ubuntu).

    Cenobite Totem: Ant; group mind, patience, action.

    Cenobite Crystal: Rhodonite; opens our hearts to unconditional love toward others and ourselves and increased service to mankind.

    Cenobite Herb: Damiana; unconditional love, passion and increased vision.

    Cenobite Mantra: I am One with all.

    Famous Cenobites: John of the Cross, Teresa of Ávila, Saint Bruno, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Anthony the Great, Benedict of Nursia, Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Merton.
