← CHAPTER OVERVIEW

Who do you wish to be in the family of your dreams?

Dear Creatrix,

That was quite an intense journey so far, wasn’t it?

What is your hidden family inheritance? And how are you dealing with it? I’d love to hear about your experiences, in the comments below or in our Facebook group.

And now that we brought so much light into the shadows of our past, it’s time to start using our new-found clarity, confidence and the wisdom we have gained through this exploration to start consciously creating the families of our dreams.

For that, we will begin this lesson by thinking about the roles we would like to embody in this lifetime, in our families, and/or the ones we might already be embodying now.

Are you, or would you like to be, a mother? A father? A zaza? Or a grandmother?

We are all somebody’s child, that’s for sure, no matter how we relate to our biological parents or the people who raised us, and we’ve looked at the different roles (our inner children) we took on in that capacity last week.

Now it’s time to look at the other roles we (wish to) embody today.

Who are you in your family other than a child? Are you a mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, sibling? 

And who else would you wish to be in this lifetime? Are there ideas, dreams, wishes, images, that you have of yourself, but haven’t lived yet?

In the picture above (and below) you can see the 4 different archetypes we can embody when it comes to the active parts of creating a family, and we will investigate those today.

Those are:

► mother
► father
► zaza
► grandparent

I think we all have a pretty clear picture in our minds when we think about the mother, the father and the grandparent archetype. Whether it is an image of what we had, when we were growing up, or what we wished for.

But funny enough, while the most essential qualities might overlap for some, not all do.

So, what comes up for you, when you think of a mother or a father or a grandparent?

Like all the other things we looked at before – nothing just is – everything is created by us, and every creation starts with the image we have in our minds.

What a mother looked like in our imagination and in reality 100 years ago is different from what we see and imagine now.

The image of a mother is somewhat different in different parts of the world, and it’s different in every family and to each person.

Times are changing, circumstances are changing and so are the demands.

While in the past, fathers weren’t so deeply involved in raising children, in most families in the west, and women were supposed to stay at home with the kids instead, many consciously choose to create a change here, and look for different options – because we’ve experienced it ourselves, how painful it can be when the parents are absent most of the time.

We know that we need all parts, that it helps to have different people lovingly involved in the lives of our children, or that it takes a village to raise a child, as if that’s not there – it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and alone.

So, today, we are going to check out our (subconscious) ideas about these roles, which might be a lot more surprising than we’d expect now.

And then we can begin to think about how we would like to embody, form and shape these roles consciously, for ourselves, so they can fulfil and nourish us, and will be what we hope for them to be (and not surprise us in ways that will be difficult to handle later on).

Let’s pull some cards

To be honest, I was quite sceptical about Tarot and Oracle Cards – until I started pulling daily cards every morning and every evening and wrote them down for a while.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

Let’s begin to explore the purpose of life and our unique role in it.

In this lesson we will just start by looking at where we are at right now, find out what answers we are looking for and get a bit in the mood of this chapter so we can open up to exploring our mystical side, our purpose and our callings in the next four weeks.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Let’s find some clarity

We have a lot to explore this month, so we will use this lesson to find some clarity around the terms we will be using and start diving into the meaning and the purpose of our lives, as well as all the other terms.

And I share a bit about how I got here and how I discovered my callings and the purpose of life.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 3

Why you are whole and perfect as you are

In the last lesson, we looked at the purpose of life and all the other terms we are going to fill with our own unique meaning in this chapter – and today, we will look at ourselves and how we can possibly give ourselves a new, more powerful meaning as well, by discovering that we are perfect already just as we are.

Do you agree? Do you think you’re perfect – yet?

Tools for Self-Recognition I: Astrology

In this lesson, we learn how to use our curiosity and our bliss, as well as our astrological birth chart to find out more about ourselves, our wishes, our personality traits, what drives and motivates us, what we like about ourselves, and what some of our challenges are – and then we see how we can begin to resolve them.

Tools for self-recognition II: Numerology

After finding out more about ourselves through Astrology, we focus once again on what else is possible for us, when we begin to look at what’s great about ourselves instead of what’s wrong with us ;).

It really makes such a huge difference.

And then we use numerology to recognize ourselves even more and to consider the possibility of inviting in a new (nick) name into our lives, to help strengthen the qualities we would like to cultivate more from now on.

Tools for self-recognition III: Wheel of Colours

Let’s dive a little deeper into getting to know ourselves.

This time we will use the Wheel of Colours to recognize more aspects of ourselves, and I’ll also show you how to use your Wheel of Colours to support you in the changes you’d like to create in your life.

Practice: Foot Massages

Practice: Foot Massages

The topic of this chapter is RELAX/ Family, right?

And maybe the relaxation fell a little bit short – so let’s counteract that with some foot massages.

Today is the day we will start to treat ourselves extra nicely, maybe create a new family tradition, and learn how to best massage our own and each other’s feet.
