In dealing with recent losses, I stumbled across a cathartic, rooted art form that is helping me reconnect with my true nature. Meekah Sage, local artist and wild woman, came up with the concept that she refers to as self-love flags. These panels embody her archetypes as a woman and human. They also function as an affirmation of what she hopes to achieve and who she is at the core.
Thus far, I have journaled a bit about the “characters” I project, the roles I play, and my real nature. In making my self-love flags, I left out the roles I took on because of societal or personal pressures and dysfunctions. I rather chose to focus on deep memory of the qualities I was gifted at birth.
Here is my archetype list:
- The Healer
- The Empath
- The Poet
- The Traveler
- The Shapeshifter
- The Wild Woman
- The Lover
Creating each panel will be fun and healing.
If you created a list of your archetypes, what would they be?
