WHO IS THIS ARCHETYPE:
This is the natural listener. Empathy and optimism are keywords for the Confidant. This archetype listens to others with openness and affection. In the Confidant’s aura people feel trust and are naturally compelled to tell their secrets.
The Confidant collects and remembers stories. This archetype knows more than those around without necessarily sharing it. Based on data collected over time, the Confidant can be wise about the present and future.
The Confidant is empathetic without feeling weighed down by the difficult and negative things it hears. It knows how to be the neutral witness and listen with love, without losing its center and core stability.
This archetype knows that there is a lot of turmoil and conflict in the world, yet it feels optimistic about the future. The Confidant, based on the collected reflections of the past, shares universal ideas and values in an ordered framework which inspires humanistic co-operation.

The Hearer of Secrets
Recording of the Past
Can feel weighed down by the difficult and negative things in the world and become pessimistic about the direction and future of humanity.

Openness, Affection, Trustworthiness, Wisdom, Discernment, Optimistic.
Letting other people walk over you without learning anything. Pretending to listen and care but at the same time being closed off. Creating a false sense of safety by repressing emotions. Sacrifice both pleasure and pain and live a flat isolated life.
You get stuck in a reactionary emotional patterns instead of taking in what other people say and feel. The world looks too messed up so you don’t believe anything can shift for the better of humanity. Your pessimism and bitterness comes out as anger.
Hearing vs. Listening
When you hear someone, it means that your ears heard the sound of their voice. You perceive and receive the sound waves.
Listening requires you're whole presence in the present, processing, interpreting and taking IN. Listening requires that you focus your attention on the person and hear THEN process what they are saying. You take in the words, tone of voice, emotional state, inflection, body language, etc. To take it a step further is to listen to what they are saying BEHIND the words and BETWEEN the words. When you can place yourself in their shoes and listen to them
Hearing can be accidental, while listening is purposeful.

Gene Key Title: Listening Through Love
Discord – Discernment – Empathy
Victim of Pessimistic Mind
Shadow: The Chemistry of Pessimism (Discord)
“We hear only discord in the world because we are unable to listen to the overall dilemma.”
Gift: The Fellowship of Man (Discernment)
“To view life at this mythic level is to see the great archetype playing out our lives.”
Siddhi: The Great Cosmic Hub (Empathy)
“Whereas sympathy requires two, empathy demands one.”
EMBRACE your shadows. Sometimes our shadows just need attention and love to be transformed. An embrace is a hug. We pull it in; we do not push away. Hug until it blends and transforms inside of you revealing the GIFT within. The gift is then RELEASED inside you and out of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.
