Mythology archetypes

When in doubt, ask the gods for help.

I’ve always been curious about mythology; it gives us a wealth of stories with interesting characters, and so many of the themes cross cultures, pointing to our human instinct to make sense of things.

When you’re struggling to make sense of something, like a challenge or block, try reading some myths. Look for a similar dynamic that you’re trying to overcome, or a story about a god representing attributes that would help you. We can invoke those qualities as an archetype to “step into” or meditate on to help us with our issue.

What myth seems familiar to you today?
