Episode Transcript:

Welcome to the everyday intuitive podcast. I’m your host, Heather Alice Shae intuitive life coach trainer status quo, shaker and founder of Atmana Coaching Academy. Listen in each week to break up with your comfort zone claim your self confidence and radically embrace your role as an intuitive healer mentor and sought after coach let’s get within and get after it.

Hello. Intuitives welcome back to the show. We are going to dive into our first intuitive coach archetype. If you haven’t listened to episode 44, when I talk all about discovering what type of intuitive coach you are. Using archetypes to help us kind of conceptualize and break down who you are, what you do, who you do it for, and why as an intuitive coach, then you’re gonna wanna check out that episode before you dive into this one, where we talk about per second and the next three that we are going to do.

Okay. So how do you know which archetype you are? I’m glad you asked. You have to go over to my website@heatheraliceshae.com. That’s Shea like the butter spelled S H E A.com. And you will see in the nav right there, a quiz buttons. You can click that, or you can go to Heatheraliceshae.com/intuitive.

Hyphen coach hyphen archetype, hyphen quiz, and take the quiz to find out. So I believe it’s either 10 or 12 questions. It’ll take you less than a minute to get through it. It is super fun. The whole point of the quiz is to help you to discover who you are as an intuitive healer. Right? So a big question we have when we get started as an intuitive professional, and I would just say, even a coach in general is how do I uniquely show up in the world?

And. How do I talk to people about what I do? How do I myself understand in a more intimate and accurate way who I am as you know, as a healing professional in the industry. So I designed the quiz to kind of. Give you a window into the four sort of presentations that I’ve noticed over the years in working to help intuitive coaches, not only cultivate, incredible coaching skills, you know, hone and own their intuition and build.

You know, beautiful businesses that help them, you know, make a meaningful living and also do the work they love to do in the world. I’ve noticed that there’s four presentations of how coaches typically show up, meaning how do you just do what you do? You know, how is you’re just in the moment you’re doing what you do.

What does that look like for people? And so I’ve noticed people kind of fall into four buckets. And so I decided to make the quiz to help you figure out which one you are, you know, most fully embody. and then help you conceptualize that down into how this plays out in your business. Okay. So to understand kind of the overarching narrative of how you can really apply this and understand it, listen to episode 44, take the quiz because it’s going to tell you, are you per Seny?

Are you Athena or are you demeanor? Okay. Now I will say this before we jump into pers Seny, cuz that’s who we’re talking about today. No person is one entire archetype. You always have a secondary archetype and depending on how integrated you are as a person and a healer, you might be a really solid mix of all four.

You might be, you know, a pers Seph in one scenario and. Pop down to be a heck in another scenario, it really just depends on, you know, how flexible you are with the way that you coach, the way that you show up, you know, and how that feels for you. So before we jump into this episode where we’re gonna cover perse, and then the next three episodes are going to be the hot and dirty on the other three archetypes.

You know, go take the quiz. That way you can kind of contextualize the information that you’re getting here. When you get the quiz, you will also get access to all of the reports, not only your main archetypes report, but you’ll get to read the other three to help you further understand how all of this can help you jumpstart your career as an intuitive coach.

And I’m using that word career intentionally here, a career means that you’re actually making meaningful money, right? Worried about having to go back into corporate. You’re not selling your soul in some stupid job that you hate. You really can say yes to becoming an intuitive coach and make really good money doing this.

If you have the solid foundation that you need from the inside out to do so. And you know, that’s basically the reason why I exist. So I’m not gonna jump off on that soap box or bang my drum on it anymore, but just encouraging you to. spend some time here, you know, really diving into the archetypes that we’re presenting.

Okay. So without a further ado over this episode and the next three, we are going to cover five main things. So we are going to look at a Greek mythological. Backstory that will help personify the energy of your archetype. So, you know, I’m kind of a nerd for all things, Greek mythology. I think that myth is a fantastic way to understand the natural world around us.

So I’m gonna. Use a couple of the goddesses from the Greek Pantheon to help us understand who we are and how we show up in these healers gifts. So you’re gonna hear that backstory to help you just sort of understand the energy that you bring into session. We’re gonna talk about your unique coaching style.

So what does your archetype look like in the room? Right. Kind of a general overarching application into the coaching environment. The third is that we’re gonna look at the intuitive strengths that your archetype gives you, not only as a coach, but just as an individual in the world. Think sort of like personality test kind of thing.

You know, just how it is that you present in different scenarios. And then the fourth is your growth opportunities that you have. And then also. The fifth will talk a little bit about branding ideas, you know? So how do you apply it? Right? How do you wrap a business around this? And if you take the quiz, you will get access to, you know, I’ve created even Pinterest boards for each of these quizzes.

So if you want to get access to the Pinterest. Board which really helps you grow a brand, kind of get like a visual aesthetic behind each archetype, then take the quiz. And once you take the quiz, I will email that over to you. So again, I’m gonna give you that URL and then we’re gonna jump into perse. It said Heather, Alice sh.com/intuitive hyphen coach hyphen archetype, hyphen quiz.

Okay, so let’s jump into pers Seny and pers Seny is called the Oracle pers Seny is the archetype. That is the most often she’s kind of the, I don’t know, in many ways, one of the. Well, she’s the most powerful in her own way, but she’s also the one I think that the world needs most right now. And it’s really indicative of the fact that I think a lot of intuitive healers have a lot of peronian gifts if peronian is a word, but you know, definitely are embodying her and she is called the Oracle.

Because she is really, really, really, really good at being able to see into both worlds and bringing back wisdom from both worlds. And so we’ll talk about what that means here. So perse in Greek myth was the daughter of demeanor. Sometimes people pronounce that diameter as well, and ter was Gaia or mother earth.

And ER is also one of our other archetypes. So we’ll talk about her in one of the later podcast episodes, but perse was her daughter. and perstephanie became the queen of the underworld and the world of the dead. So she was a natural child of earth and heaven and how she became the queen of this macab.

You know, underworld is very tragic yet with a very, very purposeful ending. So Hades the Lord of the underworlds saw her picking flowers in a field one day and he was absolutely overcome with desire for her. So smitten by her beauty and her innocence, he rose up out of the ground and abducted her. Back to his kingdom where he basically forcibly raped her, but he was also madly in love with her.

You know, she certainly did not want to be down there with him, but he made her his queen while she was there. So once she was there, he offered her a pomegranate, which she ate willingly and in the Greeks, for some reason, the Greeks believe that if you ate of the pomegranate in the underworld, you, you know, you were bound to Hades forever.

So despite Haiti being, you know, a complete son of a bitch, he actually was super duper, duper in love with her and wanted her to stay with him and treated her, you know, with just, you know, respect and admiration, you know, as much as any Lord or, you know, king of hell, I guess, could bestow upon perse. And, you know, over time, perse actually really did fall in love with him.

you know, over time, she really did see him as someone that was worthy and, you know, capable of receiving her love. So it’s kind of interesting Perces character is actually very, very fascinating because Percee could even see. See the good in Hades, the king of hell himself. Right? I think it speaks a lot to her character that she could do that.

So, but demeanor, man, she was not having it. She was furious with Hades for stealing her daughter and beseeched Zeus to intercede on her behalf. And Zeus struck a deal with Hades because Demeter. Was so pissed off that Haiti had taken her only daughter. She cursed the land and refused to let the crops grow until her daughter was returned to her, which is why the Greeks believe we have the fall and the winter, right.

That’s how they explain the fall. And the winter months that’s de cursing the earth until her daughter pers was allowed to come back up and live nine months out of the year with her mother in the upper world. And three months out of the year in the under. So what’s so interesting about pers Seny is that she is the only figure in the entire Greek Pantheon, who was able to truly live in both worlds of the living and the world of the dead Haiti himself, king of hell.

Could not live in the land of the living in zoos himself. The most mighty God could visit the underworld, but he could not live there. It was pers Seny, who was a child of heaven, earth, and hell. There was nowhere that pers Seny could not go. There was nothing. She couldn’t feel she had influence and sway over truly the entire universe, all the realms that could touch a human soul.

That’s what makes her so, so, so incredible. so as such, she is the only archetype who has knowledge and mastery over the mysteries of both worlds and that perse chose to willingly stay in the underworld with Hades reveal something rather interesting about her. She entered into the world of death and darkness, a frightened and powerless girl and emerged its uncomfortable queen.

So I just absolutely love that about her. She was taken down there against her will, but once there really kind of improved the place, right. She sort of looked at Hades and said, you know, no more, we are going to treat all of the souls that enter this realm with respect and dignity. She was the one who, you know, kind of put in the processes of being shepherd over the.

Six and, you know, making sure that, you know, human beings did have some sense of what would happen when they did pass over. So she is a complete badass in her own way. If you are per Seny, your unique coaching style, is that really more than any other coaching style? You have the ability to bridge. The realms of the conscious and the unconscious mind.

So the underworld to the Greeks, you know, in psychological terms, we would say that that is a representative of the unconscious mind. The underworld is analogous to a human being’s unconscious mind and the upper world, the world of ter you know, mother earth, Gaia, that is representative of our conscious mind.

Everything that we have that we’re consciously aware of, but Perces are the type that can go down down deep as dark as they need to go, but also pop it up high. Effortlessly go back and forth and back and forth between the conscious and the unconscious mind as a coach, you can really do this well with your clients.

You’re really good at holding that tension between these very, very different energies. So you are a kind and a gentle impact. You see situations and problems from every conceivable angle. So completely that you can feel it as if you are the other person. And you are the Oracle because you are often highly psychic and intuitively possess a comprehensive understanding of universal principles makes sense.

Right? Because you can, there’s nowhere in the universe, you can’t go right. Conscious, unconscious, subconscious, whatever. You’re able to go. And you have a knack for helping other people tune into and know all of these aspects of themselves as well. And so what makes this archetype really cool is that you can feel at home in the realms of both strong emotion, right?

That’s that underworld right brain, but also still like logic left brain upper conscious. Right. You’re really good at being on both sides of that bridge and not only being on both sides. Bridging it right. Crossing back and forth over between the realms. So there is no place within the human psyche that you can’t travel and help others go to.

And more than likely you’ve lived through your own fair share of pain and found your way through it by relying on. You know, your own WIS and your heart to guide you. So this makes you a very, very, very powerful coach and you have a skillful way of helping other people see and accept things that they have been running from for a very long time.

You are at your best when you allow your intuition to lead and then letting your head figure out the how to move forward. So. Again, she was, you know, wise enough to understand that there was something wondrous and worthwhile about remaining in that realm of the unconscious. So many people want to just kind of run from that, or maybe not look at it.

It’s scary, but pers understands that you really kind of have to look at it and you’re really good at helping your clients. Right. So though dark and frightening, the underworld holds the keys and the secrets to the hidden powers of the human heart, mind, and soul, and perse rightly sees that the value of becoming a child of not only heaven and earth, but also one of darkness is very, very important.

If we are going to become fully human. So, and this man, our pers Seny really is the embodiment of the inexplicable link between the conscious and the unconscious mind. So she’s a power powerful figure for integration, right. And she’s beneath, you know, she has the ability. To just pull forward those hidden gems and really just see a lot of the things that other people can’t see about themselves, others in the world, but then also kick it up to the conscious mind and say, okay, now what are we gonna do about it?

Right. Nothing is beyond her gaze. And because of this, she really is able to assist other individuals in gaining insight from their past, in order to help bridge a better future. So let’s look at some of your intuitive strengths, your intuitive strengths include balancing logic and emotion. Patience with those struggling with resistance, seeing and recognizing synchronicities and universal guidance.

That’s very, very easy for Peres interpreting esoteric information into everyday language. So in other words, taking the woo and making it understandable, embracing solitude and truly, truly trusting the universe. Some of your growth opportunities for this archetype is to remain in your feminine side.

Since you are able. Beak logic with the best of ’em, you have a tendency to move into the masculine, you can do it. It’s actually a skill you have. It’s just important that you don’t stay there because you really are more comfortable back over in that feminine. If you’re over in that masculine too long, it’ll begin to drain you.

And your task is to remember that you are at your strongest when you allow your intuition to inform your decisions and your actions. so perse in terms of branding, how you would really start to incorporate this idea, um, your strengths, your growth opportunities and everything that you’ve learned about this archetype into your brand.

Start talking about being a bridge maker. Start talking about dark to light. You know, integration, that would be a big theme for you. That’s gonna be something that you’re really good at helping your clients achieve. Another thing that Peres are really good at is helping a client understand their goals.

Right? That’s more of a conscious mind thing, but doing goal attainment. Through the uncovering of that unconscious material. It’s not that the other archetypes don’t do it. It’s just that they don’t do it as well. And as balanced as maybe a pers Seny. So for instance, Athenas are amazing at goal setting.

but they’re not as interested in the, going into the past to do it right. Helping a person reconcile their shadow. They’re not necessarily interested in it. They can goal set and they’re just as good, if not better than a per Seny at that, but they’re not gonna bring that shadow piece to it. Right. Or they’re not gonna be as interested in it.

Right. So procees are really good at that. Juxtapose Perces. Withs right. SOS. Nobody does shadow work better than a heck. So they’re actually deep, deep, deep, deep down on. The shadow works side, but they’re not as good at goal setting as a pers. Seny right. So they’ll go as deep as a pers. Seny maybe deeper into the unconscious, but they can’t, they have a harder time tying that to solid goals in the real world.

Right. And Athenas are really good at the goals, but they’re not as good as going back. So. Perse are just really, really special in that way. I think that they actually, they can work with more diverse group of clients because they do possess, you know, the skill set that a lot of people really need to have that tension held with them, you know, for clients to be able to.

Accomplish their goals. So spend some time today thinking about this. And again, if you take the quiz and you’re not a per Seny, it doesn’t matter. You’ll still get access to her report. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Everything. I just went over in this podcast, you will get in a report. And if you would like to join our Facebook group as well, I think I’ll put a link to that in the show notes.

So if you wanna join our Facebook group, we’d love to have you, but most important, go take the quiz because it’s going to help you dive into each of these archetypes.

Okay. So that is it. For per S Seny. I hope you enjoyed it. And we are doing Athena. Next fun fact. I’m in Athena. That’s my main one. So we will tackle that in episode 46. See you.
