So men that I’ve heard from lately either gravitate towards the King Archetype or are repulsed by it…
There’s so much muddling along the way in masculinity and not many strong role models for men to follow.
Honestly the most Kingly example I can think of is Christ (his teachings and embodiment not Christianity)
Christ teaches us that the Divine Masculine archetype is deeply rooted in unconditional love, service to all, unity, respect and equality.
To lead with congruency in thought and action, to welcome all, to bring fertility and nourishment to Earth…
✨But to place one’s relationship to the Divine first.
✨So to evolve this into modern times, the King Archetype is about love, integrity and action.
✨Being an open channel for golden divine energy to be in the spine, to have an open heart of love, and to be so committed to your own conviction, your word shatters untruths.
Your word is your sword- meaning you live by your word.
On the other hand..
The King shadow is about power over, tyranny, abuse, coercion…
The exalted King is about bringing order, fertility, and prosperity to all.
The Divine Masculine/King/Father (all interchangeable) all want to serve in this highest and best way, grounded in this values, with a loving yet discerning heart ♥️
Meaning he has boundaries. He can say a firm no. He’s willing to fight for what he believes in. He will protect those he loves… (more of the warrior but the King includes the warrior archetype)
But.. in essence the King Energy is about deeply living from your own heart, grounded in your truth and values and being in service to the all.
We don’t need more men rejecting this archetype out of fear of tyranny or abuse.
I truly believe the world would be thriving if this energy was more expressed on earth 🌍 along with honoring the Divine Feminine principles. We are starving as a culture for real embodied King energy- and women — you can embody this energy too!!
