What is your Dominant Emotional Archetype: Mother, Daughter or Woman Energy?

What is your Dominant Emotional Archetype: Mother, Daughter or Woman Energy?

crystal as little girlAs a very small girl, I’d developed what I now call my Dominant Emotional Archetype: Mother Energy.

I knew exactly how to put my own needs last to take care of others first and foremost. I was brilliant at making others happy. This was my survival mechanism.

The ‘Parent’ archetype dominated my life even though I was only seven years old.

Whether this selflessness was instilled into me by my father—The Ruler, or by my mother who raged in and out of Daughter Energy, or because my sister was born when I was seven and I needed to take care of her, or because of the Princess-Haters, I couldn’t say for certain; but when my Mother Energy was in charge, I felt safer. (Note: Safer, not safe.)


Do you know what Dominant Emotional Archetype you’re in:

Mother Energy, Daughter Energy or Woman Energy?


Here are some definitions to help you decipher yourself:

Mother Energy or the Parent Archetype – Your survival story is that your life is in the service of others. In fact, you spend so much time and energy providing for everyone that you have little energy left to take care of yourself. You function as if your needs and feelings don’t matter—that somehow being selfless is so important that it comes before self-care. You’ve been taught to worry about others to the point you forget about yourself. You’re not quite sure how things got so challenging, but it feels like you’ve always been taking care of someone—even if you don’t have children of your own. Too busy being busy . . . something has to change. You will always be a giver, but you need to remember to give more to yourself so you don’t burn out.

Daughter Energy or the Child Archetype Games, games, and more games! Your survival story is that life is a constant power struggle filled with drama and dysfunction. But you are so tired of being insecure, competitive, and angry. You are a good person at heart, but the little voice in your head rarely turns off, constantly comparing yourself to others, which makes you often appear spoiled, sucky, or selfish. Unless you learn to grow up, life isn’t going to get better! The good news is that once you learn how to expand your emotions rather than contract into them, you will find freedom!

Woman Energy or the Adult Archetype – You’ve totally got your groove on! You know who you are and where you’re going! You’ve done the work; re-written the script, ignited your hidden strengths and re-routed misdirected fear into living your fullest! You are authentic, assertive, empowered, independent, strong, determined, loving, accepting, and open-minded; your reality is reflecting to you great health, wealth, love, relationships, and purpose! You feel expansive, safe, and excited about your future! You know how much you matter! (NOTE: If your life is not reflecting back to you great health, wealth, love, relationships, and purpose, get out of denial — didn’t even notice I am lost. You must tell yourself the truth!)
