Magician Archetype Drawing

Manifestation, Creative Focus and Productivity

The magician archetype is all about using intention to manipulate the alchemical elements available in a way that manifests experiences that illuminate truth, awareness, and purpose in an inspiring and enchanting way. By effectively manifesting what is needed, the magician can take a step to higher ground instead of falling into challenging situations that a more foolish archetype can get themselves into.

My Journey at Sáiva

Saiva Drawing Colorized by BeholderSphere

Now that I have leaped off the edge, ventured deep into the Northern Wilderness of Sweden and the Sáiva Festival has began, I reflect on how I have been acting as well as what it has taken to get here. I will now set more clear intentions to manifest the kind of experiences I want. I am here to create art, feel inspired and go on a spiritual journey. The major arcane of the tarot will be my guide.

From this place I will act with purpose and passion while grounded and clear.

Balance The 4 Elements

In order to create what you can imagine; time and attention much be focused on it. This requires other aspects of life must be in balance:

  • Earth - Keep a healthy morning routine and diet.
  • Water - Your Emotional relationships must be positive and uplifting.
  • Air - You mind must be able to relax and keep focused on current task.
  • Fire - You must feel a desire to accomplish the goal of creating something useful and valuable.

Focus Creative Energy on a Consciously Chosen Activities

One of the major lessons of the Magician Archetype is about focus and procrastination. This archetype is massively creative and able to manifest anything in life. But time and attention are a limited resource, so its just as important to NOT spend creative energy on certain tasks, as it is important to spend focused creative energy on specific chosen activities. Some activities may feel like creative magician energy, but it may be procrastination or a distraction.

For example: Spontaneously stacking rocks at the beach in impressive rock statues may feel like a creative magician archetype activity, but if stacking rocks does not contribute to a bigger picture of manifesting what you want, a skilled magician archetype will identify this, acknowledge it as a recreational creativity activity, and if it is not time for recreation then it is time to stop and get back to spending creative energy on manifesting what matters most.

The next archetype, The High Priestess is particularly good at deepening the vision of what is most important to manifest. That will come next.
