Yes 100% maiden this week
finn D
01:25:09
Find it hard to appreciate the light aspects of the maiden because they are so often (in current times) taken advantage of...
MD
01:25:14
awesome intro into the light and shadow! Sounds that Mainden’s shadow side is very much trauma responses.
Emel Gunay
01:25:18
Thank you Gaia, very interesting. I can definitively recognise a lot of the shadow maiden in me.
finn D
01:25:20
didn't know how to appreciate this side of myself
Amber
01:25:21
I'd been stuck in Maiden for a long time
eleanordolan
01:25:28
I feel maiden archetype is the one I fall into most easily, I think partly innate, but a lot of expectations from family and society to act in this way
Nixon
01:25:35
Think I identify with the maiden in the way that my inner child is still going through healing of trauma so this resonates as … being without boundaries, relying on others, a parent etc... quite a passive role
Quiztal
01:25:49
I feel I have experienced a lot of shadow maiden growing up
Theresa
01:25:50
I definitively see a lot of that archetype in myself and have also experienced how exhausting and disempowering it is to stay in that mode
Felicity Runchman
01:25:51
I'm not sure it's my dominant archetype but I can definitely see myself going there in positive ways (curious, innocent, playful) and less constructive ways (people-pleasing, unassertive) from time to time.
Lara
01:25:53
Fascinating. Yes, very much have identified with this in the past. This explains A LOT. So good to know.
Jannika
01:26:08
Is the list of light and shadow qualities somewhere to read? Couldn't keep up with it.But I feel there was a lot of the Maiden in me. Definitely lacking clarity and direction
Isla Macleod
01:26:21
Noticing a fair few of the shadow aspects of maiden in myself. Wondering if in part due to having to grow up too quick starting boarding school young…?
Manuela Mendoza
01:26:29
I feel the need to connect more with the light side of the maiden
Cerys T
01:26:32
feel like there's safety in the maiden phase that I hold on to with not knowing what I want and distracting myself with exploration and joy
Tia
01:26:52
I'm feeling a pressure to take on the light part of this archetype at the moment which triggers the shadow
Tania
01:26:53
I resonate with the maiden deeply especially the shadow aspects unfortunately! And I’m over 50... so ready to work on this! 😀
Gaia Harvey Jackson
01:27:16
Light Side: curiosity, freshness, tenderness, muse, available, fertile, sweet, energetic, playful, experimental.
Gaia Harvey Jackson
01:27:28
Shadow of the maiden: Inertia, helplessness, not knowing how to set boundaries, people pleaser, not knowing what they want, unassertive, victim, not taking responsibility.
Stacey McCarthy
01:27:39
Definitely resonate with the Maiden. Especially the shadow side when I'm having bad days. When I'm having Good days I'm really carefree and content with life, but on the bad I have no idea what I want or how to figure it out, and end up feeling helpless like I need someone to rescue me
Helen Butlin
01:27:40
I can relate to feeling inertia and people pleasing and have never thought about it in relation to the Maiden archetype shadow side. Good to think about it in relation to what society expects from us as women
Kristyna Chocholacova
01:35:30
loved it <3 thank you Gaia
Gaia Harvey Jackson
01:36:38
Light side: Clear Boundaries, Clarity, Direction, truth, getting things done, going for what she wants, confidence, power, assertiveness
Gaia Harvey Jackson
01:42:58
Shadow Side: Cold, Rigid, Competitive, emotionally unavailable, over-doing, stubborn, maintaining the hierarchy
Nixon
01:46:22
can you pop the light aspects of warrior in the chat too?
Nixon
01:46:33
oh sorry! thanks :)
phoebe
01:47:54
I often feel my anger is delayed and misdirected
Madi Grace
01:48:46
Really resonate with the warrior coming to protect my inner maiden as a child… I have been trying to connect more to the inner child and perhaps lose some of that armour as you say… in order to break down the shadow sides of the warrior
Anna Montanari (She/her) (Italy)
01:48:47
I really feel the warrior coming to rescue
finn D
01:48:53
the woman who recommended me this is my warrior role model!!
Jannika
01:48:55
Need to work on the light sides, and see quite a few shadow qualities... Especially for my new role at work I would like to improve on the confidence, assertiveness and direction.
Theresa
01:48:56
I’m not an obvious warrior, my armour looks soft from the outside, it’s distant and doesn’t rely on or need anyone but it looks accommodating and open, truly tapping into my anger and truth helps me to get out of that state
Kristyna Chocholacova
01:49:06
The Warrior is perhaps the one archetype I identify with the most, however, sometimes I struggle with stepping into its full power.
Roz
01:49:11
Yes to how the warrior steps in and how warrior showing up is also attempted to be shut down or minimised in society e.g. crazy or mental for showing anger
Quiztal
01:49:46
I feel though I’ve been growing my warrior a lot over the last few years, I see it as positive, where as I find the maiden harder to get on board with
Amber
01:49:58
really resonate with what Madi described
finn D
01:50:06
definitely don't release my anger (healthily or unhealthily) so thanks for that insight into release! <3
Emel Gunay
01:50:15
The armour of the warrior has turned to almost like a fortress to over protect the maiden who lives in the shadow. Difficult to come to terms with this and thus my anger always turns against myself as I never learned to express it
Sophie
01:50:25
sometimes too much armour really weighs me down and after time becomes more difficult to take off
Nixon
01:50:29
yes defo disconnected from my anger too!
Felicity Runchman
01:50:35
Really interesting. I don't think the world at large would see me as a warrior but a lot of this is resonating in terms of my inner sense of self. I've always been quite tough and self-sufficient - qualities in many respects but they sometimes prevent me connecting with inner softness.
Jannika
01:50:38
I have too much anger :D
Kristyna Chocholacova
01:50:46
me too :D
Tia
01:51:03
my work has helped me to hone my light warrior but she developed from looking out for my maiden
Sophie
01:51:11
independence sometimes turns to isolation
Max Goslin
01:51:19
I think this can apply to my gender as well. I do identify with it too. Both light and shadows at times. But I know the shadow is often out of a feeling of injustice.
Celia
01:52:08
I really resonate with the idea of sadness after anger
MD
01:53:31
max you won this one ! :D
Emel Gunay
01:56:32
Same here Celia, deep sorrow
phoebe
01:56:57
I always get shivers after feeling anger from helplessness, I’m releasing so much
Emel Gunay
01:56:58
Injustice is a big trigger…
finn D
01:57:08
That was awesome!
Madi Grace
01:57:17
Agreed!!!
Gaia Harvey Jackson
01:58:16
Light side: creative, in touch with desires, sensory, magnetic, abundant, inspiring, passionate, inviting, receptive
phoebe
02:03:41
Taking baths is so important for being connected with pleasure
Theresa
02:04:02
I wish I had a tub!
Kristyna Chocholacova
02:04:14
I love that Phoebe
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:04:19
Shadow Side: Manipulative, Narcissistic, Drama Prone, Co-Dependant, Unfaithful, Lack of Self Control
Sophie
02:05:58
limerence
Nixon
02:06:11
yes was going to say the same, love psychosis sounds lots like limerence!
phoebe
02:06:18
Oh no..Gaia is on to me!
Nixon
02:08:18
how does it relate to co-dependency?
Roz
02:08:26
lover shadow is my ex partner haha
Cerys T
02:08:38
same!!
Amber
02:08:59
ha, same!
Lara
02:09:06
Feel quite triggered by the shadow side of this. Feeling a bit gross about myself..!
finn D
02:09:14
yay found my light finally! really resonate with the lover although certainly also hold the shadow aspects
Nixon
02:09:15
what other archetype is important to cultivate the positive aspects lover then?
Nixon
02:09:37
lots of body shame! :(
Quiztal
02:09:41
I love the light lover, definitely seen the shadow appearing in relationships that are unattainable
Madi Grace
02:09:49
Have been in the shadow lover for most of my life but 2020+ moving into the light! Confronting shame & standing on my own two feet not co-depending on others… hoping to continue moving into the light of the lover <3
Cerys T
02:10:04
♥️
Felicity Runchman
02:10:08
I think it's taken other people in life to bring out the lover in me (and I've been grateful :)) I think, if we focus on the light qualities of this archetype, they can be quite infectious.
Emel Gunay
02:10:23
Lots of shame has prevented me to explore this archetype as I would like to and the warrior is defo preventing this for me…
phoebe
02:10:27
My inability to assert boundaries and also express anger manifests in me being quite passive aggressive and saying things to people I know will trigger them.
Theresa
02:10:28
I feel the lover’s shadows more in my work life than in my love life, hahah - the addictive and intensity seeking
Jannika
02:16:46
Awkward
Nixon
02:17:12
couldn't even move! but feels so special to share this space where everyone can express :)
Cerys T
02:17:31
lost myself with the movement and the music, unexpectedly.. what was that track!
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:18:08
Light side: in service, knows her purpose, generous, wise, takes responsibility, accountable, takes responsibility
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:18:22
committed
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:21:28
Shadow Side: Destructive, entitled, superior, jealous, competitive, punishing, exploitative
Amber
02:22:26
my mother is strongly shadow queen, vast sister wound
Roz
02:23:33
sister wound is social media at its worst
Cerys T
02:28:30
♥️ Madi's top ♥️
Helen Butlin
02:30:35
Feeling such a strong need to be physically with women!
Jannika
02:31:03
Me too
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:33:59
Light side: Intuitive, centred, wise, whole
Gaia Harvey Jackson
02:34:14
Ungrounded, disconnected from reality, too high, psychotic, distant, distracted
phoebe
02:35:11
I used to be the shadow side of Priestess as a young girl, very day dreamy
Lara Greve
02:35:32
Would a god complex be associated with this?
phoebe
02:36:37
Reminds me of something I heard before enlightenment carry water chop wood after enlightenment carry water chop wood
Roz
02:37:05
I was thinking that Lara, the shadow side being a bit like a spiritual ego trip
Tia
02:38:33
please can you share the track titles & artists of all of the songs you've used for each archetype?
Nixon
02:39:41
Yes please, would love the titles of the songs!! :)
Roz
02:42:01

Emel Gunay
02:43:38

Lara
02:45:48
I you feel in the priestess shadow how do you get more 'high'?
Emel Gunay
02:45:52
Gaia, can you embody parts of each? Light and dark of various archetypes?

Max Goslin
02:46:19
How can we sponsor someone else to step into their respective archetypal lights without being ‘pushing’ ?
finn D
02:46:42
how do you know when each archetype is appropriate for a given situation? any quick examples?
Tania
02:46:43
Thank you Gaia I love your clear explanations this has been such a wonderful intro and I can’t wait to learn more ❤️
Theresa
02:47:01
I’d be curious about masculine archetypes within the female, but generally just wanting to do your course and explore more, it’s quite amazing how much you managed to squeeze in here
Lara
02:47:20
If you feel in the priestess shadow how do you get more 'high'? - -sorry less high and vice versa
finn D
02:48:11
So grateful that to an extent you integrate psychology into your explanations - I found that really helpful as an anchor to some of the unknown spiritual territory! :D
finn D
02:48:34
What are some of the masculine/male archetypes?
Emel Gunay
02:48:36
Very interesting question Max…thank you for asking
Felicity Runchman
02:48:55
Many thanks for a really enlivening evening and introduction to these ideas. I'm going to go off and read some Greek myths now! The movement exercises especially brought up a lot for me to think about...
Emel Gunay
02:50:48
Maybe help with patience and space
Kristyna Chocholacova
02:51:03
What you can do Max is be an example to them and inspire them in that way :)

Thank you so much - I really enjoyed that but sadly I have to leave. It has been lovely sharing space with you all.
Nixon
02:53:11
if we miss this 6 week course, will you be running it again?
Jannika
02:53:17
Maybe telling them about this amazing course you went on and what you got out of it for yourself will inspire them to look for this themselves
Max Goslin
02:53:27
@Krystina noted!
Helen Butlin
02:53:36
Thank you for the space and for sharing your wisdom Gaia. I have been thinking about doing the course for about a year and I think now is the time! Looking forward to it. Really enjoyed being with everyone and moving x
Emel Gunay
02:53:54
This has been very enlightening. Thank you so much Gaia!
