Within you is a mass of energy woven into form through conglomeration. Within this energy field, there are archetypal energies that bring to fruition your physical reality as well as experiences. Archetypal energy is just an energy form that has been customized to suit you. It is unique to you. This article will delve into how these types affect you and what to do when you are not succeeding.

Imagine these fields that give you the typical characteristics of a human being. Among these energy types are four variations that work against you. You should take these into account when you are not productive as you should be or when considering what to do when you are not succeeding.

The four energy types include; the saboteur, the child, the victim, and the prostitute.

What your shadow self is, and how it is preventing you from succeeding.

These four archetypes are known as the shadow archetypes because even though they were meant to be clues that one is stepping out of their light energy and moving towards the opposite of that, they can work against you. Let us dig deeper into them.

1.      The saboteur

This is a sabotaging energy that stamps its foot, crumbling up every opportunity that comes your way. It may be that you desire something and an opportunity comes your way to make that desire a reality. Then fear, in every color and form that comes into play sabotages it. This is one reason you are not as productive as you should be

For example, I was to go to Dubai recently, and everything was paid for and catered for. All I needed was my passport and visa but I missed the opportunity because I talked myself out of it convincing myself that it was too good to be true. Fear set in that I might get conned or duped.

In what ways are you sabotaging yourself? Pause. Let this sink in for a minute as you reflect on what to do when you are not succeeding,

2.      The child

Here it is important to mention that there are positives to this aspect. The inner child spirit is always one that should be embraced, for is it not said that only a child gets to enter the kingdom of heaven?

Heaven in this case is an energy field where your spirit flourishes and sings in glee for it feels at home even though you are still on earth. Among the positive ones are the magical, the nature, and the divine child.

However, there are these child energies that will work against you and they are the wounded, the abandoned, and the orphaned child. In this case, this just means that one went through a traumatic experience as a child and it left a wound that never really healed even though they are now adults so it affects them up to now.

A wounded or abandoned child sees the world as harsh, chaotic, and painful and since this is the lens through which they see the universe, those are the kinds of experiences that come to them. Seeing the world from this lens may prevent you from figuring out what to do when you are not succeeding.

3.      The victim

In this case, one feels like the world works against them. They feel pity for themselves for life seems better when it comes to other people. Somehow it is linked to the wounded/orphaned child because they too see the world through a victim mindset and that is what their reality becomes.

We are all creators remember? We create through what we put into our mind for these are seeds that become reality. Are you starting to figure out what to do when you are not succeeding?

4.      The prostitute

Most people can relate to this one. Are you in a job you love? Is it an extension of you that you are so good at it and you wake up every morning excited to go to work? Is this you?

Might you be on the other end of the spectrum where you are in it just because of the money?

Here is another. Are you in a relationship because of love or are you in it because of the benefits it provides?

If you are doing something because of its benefits even though it betrays who you really are then you are in this energy archetype! THE PROSTITUTE ENERGY! This is one of the things you should note when realizing what to do when you are not succeding.

How can one work to change these energies into positives? What to do when you’re not succeeding

As I said before, these energies are just markers meant to help you identify when you are stepping out of your light or heaven energy and embracing your shadow energy.

1.      Observe your mind then keep choosing a different thought or allow the thought to wither away

The most important this is to observe yourself, observe your mind, and look at yourself keenly as though you were watching yourself from a balcony. See how these energies are inherent in your life and if you can write them down. When you do so, you will know what steps you need to do to turn that around.

For example in what ways are you sabotaging, victimizing, prostituting yourself, or painting your childhood wounds all over your current experiences yourself? It starts from thought to word, then to action.

Everything starts with a thought. If you want to change it then you have to intend it meaningfully and then make a decision. This has to be a decision from deep within immersed in an intense realization that your life has to change.

2.      The discipline to keep at it as you focus on what to do when you are not succeeding

Keep observing your thoughts and watching them. Allow them to be as you embrace yourself with love. Forgive yourself. You are not your shadow self. You are not your thoughts. You are being, made up of unconditional love, light, powerful and that which you desire, you already are. You are God.

So let the thoughts be. Soon enough with enough watching they grow silent and the true you arises with all the positive vibe you can imagine. The GOD you takes over.

3.      Talk only of that which you hope will come to be

Talk is energy. You are telling the GOD you what you want and how you want it. So talk as if you already have it. Even if you will be talking to yourself, do it. Mirror talk, bathroom talk. As you speak, so shall it be. Picture it in your mind, visualize it as clearly as you can then speak it.

4.      Feel it

Feel what you are talking about. Emotions are to manifestation what water is to seeds. You have got to feel it first before you can see it. This is what faith is all about. Imagine yourself where you want to be, feel it with all your senses as though you are existing there right now, and then start talking as though it is already done.

5.      Act like it

Act as though you already are there. Call it into being. This is not you bluffing this is you activating your GOD energy. CREATE. LIVE. Go where that version of you would go. Be that person now. The insights on what to do will come to you whispering. Give them life. Act on them. Trust them. This is what it is all about.

I then promise you that what you desire, without a shadow of a doubt will come to you.

To conclude, everything in this lifetime was meant to work for you. These four energies test whether you are ready for the next level that life wants you to transcend into for you are here in this universe to grow and evolve. The energies present challenges to help you do exactly that. Bless them, then work with them. Heal, let go, go inward through meditation, intentional prayer, journaling, and reflection, and find the answers you seek. Pass the test these energies present and you will find yourself embraced in this love energy of heaven and glee.
