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.

Hey, intuitive coaches. It’s Heather hair. Welcome back to the show. We are diving deep into the intuitive coach archetype of Athena on today’s episode. Okay. So I am not going to jump into all of the back leg work to really sort of make this episode make sense. So just to give you the hot and dirty of it, episode 44 and 45, I am walking you through all of the intuitive coach archetypes that we have established here at Atmana to help intuitive coaches understand who they are, what they do, who they.

For how they do it and why for their clients and also for themselves as they step up and say yes to their soul’s purpose and create a, you know, a movement that really embodies their soul’s mission. So if you wanna understand the context behind this podcast episode, as we go into the Athenian archetype, please listen to episode 44, to understand, you know, to kind of have the backstory on what the intuitive coach archetypes are all about, how they help you, and then listen to the.

Four episodes. So episode 45 was per SPH. Now we’re doing Athena. And then after this, we are gonna tackle the meter and Hecate two of the other remaining archetypes, which all of them are just absolutely incredible. So if I were you, I’d be asking myself right about now, how do I know what my archetype is?

Good question. I can hear you psychically asking me that through the podcasting interviews. So do not worry. I have created a fun little quiz that will help you discover your unique, intuitive coach archetype. So you can go to Heatheraliceshae.com/intuitive hyphen coach hyphen archetype, hyphen quiz, because I didn’t wanna make it easier on you.

I could have just done. Ford slash quiz. Couldn’t I, well, hindsight’s 2020. Okay. So I’m anal. So the URL is long. Heatheraliceshae.com/intuitive hyphen coach hyphen archetype, hyphen quiz. If you go there, I think it’s. 10 or 12 questions. We will walk you through it. And you just go with what your gut says, answer the questions.

It’ll take you about 60 seconds and then low and behold in your inbox, you will have your beautiful archetype report that is going to help you understand, you know, who you are as you show up into the coaching space. So right now we’re gonna cover five things with respect to. The Athena archetype, we are going to give you a mythological backstory to your archetype.

So narrative and story really help us contextualize and understand ourselves. And I am just a total nerd for Greek mythology and the goddesses of the Greek Pantheon. So I’ve chosen. For that really embody these four main types of energies that we as intuitive healers embody each and every day as we step into our work.

So you’re gonna hear that backstory of your archetype to help you understand yourself in a deeper and more helpful way. We’re gonna go over your unique coaching style. So how does your archetype show up in session with your clients? We’re gonna cover your intuitive strengths, both as an individual. And as an intuitive coach, and then also look at your growth opportunities within this archetype.

And then also talk a little bit about some brand ideas. So, you know, it’s great to know your archetype. It’s great to understand it, but if we don’t know how to take this information and just, you know, in a very easy way, start applying it to your business, then what is the point? Right. Okay. So listen, episode 44, 45, take the quiz.

And then if you’re athenian. Welcome. You’re going to love this archetype. Okay. So full disclosure. I am actually an Athena, so I get kind of excited when I talk about her. She’s just, I don’t know. I think in many ways, you know, she might not be the feminine energy we want, but unfortunately she’s kind of the feminine energy we still need, at least until we can get fully into this aquarium transition, we’re making here in human evolution.

Let’s jump into the story behind Athena’s archetype. So Athena, the daughter of Zeus is the embodiment of the human faculty of reflective judgment and divine rational thought. Notice, I didn’t say monkey mind thought I said divine. Rational thought. So this is appropriate judicious, you know, thinking, analyzing right, using those higher order cognitive skills.

She is the epitome of the human being’s ability to do that in a proper way. Zeus was warned that if he had a daughter by Metis, which is the goddess of wisdom, that she would arise even more wise and fearsome than he, so in a gruesome act to maintain his power, he swallowed Meis while she, I hope I’m saying that name, right.

He swallowed her while she was pregnant. With Athena and shortly thereafter, he developed an agonizing headache, serves him, right. He’s being an asshole. And to alleviate his suffering, the Smith, God, he first broke open his head with an ax. Hmm. That sounds really relieving. Not, not so much. And two Z’s surprise out, jumped Athena shrieking, a OC.

Cry of victory, not even the king of the gods himself could defeat her. Athena was not born from a maternal womb, but from her father’s head. And this tells us something of her natural gifts to the ancient Greeks, the mind’s ability to dispel confusion, dece. An ignorance was a uniquely human faculty that they believed to be divine without the power to judiciously and meticulously weigh the information and experiences we encounter each day in a fair and harmonious manner.

Mankind would surely be lost. So Athena’s warrior nature was obvious from birth, right. She literally had to fight to come into the world. However, she was a different kind of warrior than Aries. The God of war. She fought, not for love or conquest or loot or glory or for just sheer bloodshed, but she fought for values, morals, principles that uplift and nurture humanity into higher consciousness.

Athena represents the ability to ferociously fight and uphold universal truths that protect us man, woman and child from mindless brutality and heartless malice, a brilliant strategist. She fought not with physical aggression and force, but with clever logic levelheadedness and righteous diplomacy. Her weapons of war are intelligence, foresight, tactical, empathy, and planning in the end.

Athena always wins. So, if you are an Athena, your coaching style, it’s really cool. If you’re an Athena as a coach, nobody gets it done better than you. You are the type of person, you know, me and my close circle of girlfriends. we call it the heavy you’re the heavy, right? The one you call when the shit’s hit in the fan and you just need it to get freaking handled, you call an Athena, right?

They’re just like cut to the bottom line. You know, we’re gonna be snapping necks and cashing checks. What’s up. Let’s go. So Athenas are the needle movers the true, true needle movers, but they do it again in this feminine way, right? This righteous way, right. Again, not the God of it. Not like Aries fights wars, but how the Athenian way is very refined.

So more than any other coaching style, you have the ability to dispel deception to cut the bullshit, to fight for truth, both for your client and with your. to teach higher wisdom that most people can’t even begin to grasp. You are so good at seeing higher order principles. You truly can. You are a true visionary.

And not only that, but not only are you the truest visionary, but you know how to act and behave to make it manifest. Nobody manifests better than an Athena. You have high, high, high standards of, you know, of behavior. And you know, at times you can be a little demanding. But nobody gets it done like you and in the end, people really appreciate that about you.

And you really do have the ability to not only understand universal principles, but also truly, truly, truly embody them. Athenas don’t just preach. They practice too. So you are a powerful force to be reckoned with. And you empower your clients to become so as well, you are able to feel yet balance chaotic emotions.

You are fearless in the face of adversity because you fight for what is right. And know that in the end, the truth is always going to prevail. Your strong presence helps other people believe that anything is possible and you are called the wise warrior because you can clearly see what remains vague and hidden to others.

You are very eloquent as you articulate higher perspectives and you are unapologetic when you stand up for what you know to be right. In short, you are a modern day champion of fair and proper action that leads the world into greater healing. So more than any other archetype, really, you understand where the principles of vision and material creation meet.

And it really does give you the ability to not only manifest what you want, but help other people manifest what is truly in their heart as. You are a natural strategic thinker. You craft interesting and powerful action plans that catapult your clients into goal attainment with really more fun and ease than they ever thought possible.

And really what’s cool about Athena is it’s not that you aren’t nurturing. I think. A lot of people misunderstand Athenas as archetypes, you are incredibly nurturing. You’re just committed to nurturance through holding fast to truth. And, you know, sometimes truth can be hard to hear , you know, sometimes it is a little rough to hear, but.

We need Athenas in the world to hold us to that standard. So you are at your best when you are crafting action plans and sharing universal knowledge, imparting your vision to people, helping them see a greater future and a greater reality. You are a master at inspiring people to become more than they ever thought that they could be both as individuals.

And you do this on a, you know, just a grand scale for humanity in general. So some of your intuitive strengths are your ability to make impartial decisions, restoring emotional balance to chaotic situations. Ooh Athenas can do that. So, so, so, so, so good. You can ground it down faster than anybody analyzing and making sense of complex information fighting for justice and truth, advocating for others, helping other people become self CT, teaching universal principles and cosmic harmony, and being an example.

Fairness and loyalty to yourself and others. And your growth opportunities are cultivating patients because you can see farther than most other people. You just wanna get going already. You know, you don’t spend a lot of time and limitation. You don’t focus on the past. You’re a very present moment, future focused person, you know, your attitude is just kinda like, okay, cut this shit already.

Let’s just get going. And you really have to develop patients to understand that not everybody has that ability, you know, not everyone can move as quick as. Learn that other people need more time to digest information than you, you process quickly because you are, you have a very powerful intellect. You can digest and process and make sense of information a lot faster than most people.

So you need to understand that you gotta slow down and just give people a chance to be in their process as well. You also have to guard against the tendency to be hard on people because you do have that vision because you do see so clearly the potential that higher potential in other people, you can have the tendency to kind of be hard on people because you do understand that they can be so much more.

So, you know, what will help you in cultivating that patients is to understand that no human being can fully embody. The highest, ideal, right? You are really good at that. You’re better at it than most people. So you have to understand that other people need more time and they have to put more energy into embodying and manifesting their vision for themselves.

It’s just not. A skill set that other archetypes have for you. It comes very naturally. So that’s a growth opportunity for you for patients slow down, you know, give people a chance to catch up and know that that’s a good thing that you’re doing, that, that you’re going to get there. You know, there’s a, an African proverb, but says, if you want to go fast, go alone.

But if you want to go far, go together and Athenas need to learn how to. Far together, right? It feels exhausting sometimes to slow down, but trust me, you will be much happier if you learn how to do that. So branding ideas for an Athena would be, you know, I know it sounds kind of silly, but books, you know, owls Athena’s spirit animal was an owl.

So, you know, anything. Denotes higher learning anything that communicates, you know, the higher order principles that you really kind of effortlessly embody colors could be. I’m a toss up on this one. Brand colors could be like purples and Indigos. But also red because it’s a color of power. It’s a color of groundedness.

It’s a color of being rooted. Red is a color, you know, it’s the first chakra. So it’s all about the material world. So as much as Athena is sort of this, you know, intellectual kind of heady person, I really like the color red for an Athena because it shows that she really is balanced and has that ability to bring it into the physical realm.

If you haven’t taken the quiz, go check it out because there’s a Pinterest board that I have for Athena. That’s absolutely incredible. And if you look at it, there’s just a lot of imagery on it that will help you embrace integrating her into your brand if this resonates. Okay. So our next archetype, it is going to be Demeter.

We are going to tackle her next. See. That is a wrap for today’s show.
