Revolve to Evolve

This book is about YOU. It is a comprehensive identification of the nature of your consciousness in all its forms and how to recognise, develop and balance them. It celebrates who you are and shows you how to develop further into more of what you can become. Revolving the different aspects of our consciousness leads to our further evolution. Within you are many dormant powers, and through the practical application of the Archetypes on your Wheel of Life, your body, mind, spirit and soul can be vitalised and evolved. This Work can break the frustration of being stuck and free you in all areas of your life. It is a powerful tool that allows you to proceed at your own pace, on your own path. Part One covers some background, where I explore thoughts and ideas about our further development. Part Two is the Practice, where you will learn about each Archetype and how to develop it. You can read this book in any order you wish. If, however, you want to start practising right away, please read the chapter ‘Living From Your Centre – The Practice’ first, it gives important advice and instructions. Get to know all your Archetypes to establish a good overview and the practical reality of the Work. This is a Course for Life, in three senses. One, it will last you all your life, however long you decide to live. Two, it will bring you more of the energy of life. Three, it will take you on your own course, as in path, and as you criss-cross over the circle, your own pattern will appear, like a beautiful mandala.

This Work is all-inclusive, everything is represented. All cultures, peoples, types of societies, paths to growth, political systems, sciences, knowledge, wisdom and religions can be placed on the circle. It is completely unifying, which is what makes it so wonderful and so powerful. Although the Divine, Goddess/God is mentioned, you don’t have to believe in a Deity to use the Archetypes.

“I belong to no religion. My religion is love. Every heart is my temple.” - Rumi

This is not just another way, another path. It is every way, every path. It is not an ‘either/or’ approach, it is all approaches. It is not one direction or another, it is all directions. The Archetypes described herein can be seen in ourselves and in the faces and behaviours around us. Maybe you think this is too simple, but the simpler a thing is, the closer it is to the truth. I’m not asking you to take my word for it; in fact, I’d rather you didn’t. If you study and practise this Work you will see and experience it for yourself, and only then will it count. Otherwise it is meaningless. The only way to get into this Work is to live it and observe it alive in yourself and others. The Work is practical, it does not preach a belief system nor expect you to accept any truth without understanding it and making it your own. Nor is there any positive part of yourself that you have to give up. I simply explain what we call The Work, which comprises the Twelve Archetypes and how to develop them and thereby your Centre. I give you the means to practise it if you so wish. As Galileo Galilei said, “We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.”

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” - Albert Einstein.

Balance and movement are the basis of The Work. Movement is the key, the secret of self-growth, happiness and fulfilment. We need to keep the wheels of our consciousness turning, for without movement we lose our balance, become stagnant and open the door to misery, illness and disappointment. If you are intrigued by the idea of turning your own wheel of consciousness, then you’ll find all the parts described here, together with the means of awakening and integrating them.

Your real self is not the isolated parts of the circle with which you have become identified. You are the Centre. This is the most significant point. The information in this book defines and describes The Twelve Archetypes of the Wheel of Life, and gives you the means to apply them to yourself in a real and practical way, bringing them into your Centre, where they unite and bring you to your unique, true self. You can awaken and develop them all, expand your consciousness and enhance your life in limitless ways. You are not being asked to take anything on faith. Sincere practice will ensure that you see and experience for yourself.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” - Oscar Wilde Applying the Archetypes will take us out of mere existence and into real living. It is a Work that is so simple it can be introduced to children from the age of three or four, and yet so sophisticated it can intrigue the most advanced minds indefinitely. Moreover, it can be enormous fun. This book contains all the information you need to further your process of growth and healing, leading to the unfolding of your true self. That’s a big claim, but when these straightforward practices offered here are openly embraced, miracles and magic will abound within and around you. Even more so if you work with a group of others. You can go as far as you wish. Dip in your toe and enjoy enough insights and experiences to make small but fulfilling changes in your life, or go further and astonish yourself at what you can achieve. Greater objectivity, deeper insights and conscious choice are among the first gifts this Work brings. I give clear instructions on how to use it. I have included loaded invocation scripts that, properly practiced, will awaken you into each part of yourself. They give you the means to heal and reconcile the broken parts so that the joyful picture can be restored. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” - Maya Angelou “The object of Art is to give life a shape.” - William Shakespeare

You are invited to become a practitioner of the highest art of all, which is the art of creating your magnificent, individual self. The twelve colours of consciousness and how they work in you are easily understood, and through their use, the portrait of your true self will emerge from the Centre. Each person is an artist who can personify a unique portrait of authentic beauty and extraordinary individuality. The Work is like a flower with twelve different coloured petals, uncurling each one bit by bit and adding them to your Centre of light. You truly become the captain of your own ship. Shakespeare, in identifying the seven ages of man, said, “All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts...” Related to the Archetypes presented here, I hope you will see how they are like twelve actors, each with their role to play. Unlike Shakespeare’s, which chart the average lifespan, these will promote your youthing, further growth and evolution.

The Work is beautiful in its logic, enchanting in its poetry and dynamic in its creativity. It is like an unbreakable twelve faceted diamond, reflecting all the colours of light. It is the Philosopher’s Stone against which the false will shatter. Picture a beautiful chandelier in a darkened room; how dull it is, yet switch on the light and it twinkles with rainbows. This is true of us; our real selves are made of light. We have allowed our diamonds to become dull and lacklustre because our societies do not encourage the full extent of our beings. Our task is to polish them with our enlightenment until each facet glows and glitters, and we shine with pure light. If enough people embrace this, it will lead to a major step forward in human evolution. We will be the pioneers of a new, healthy, loving, harmonious world. I have tried and tested this Work over many years and have not been able to break it, only verify it to myself and significantly contribute to it. Richard Gardner (one of the four discoverers of the Work) advised me to make a small spinning top. I cut some stiff cardboard into a small circle and then snipped equally round the edges to make it twelve-sided. I then divided it into twelve parts, faithfully filled in the colours of the Archetypes as accurately as possible and stuck a small stick though the middle. I spun it, and as it sped up, the colours merged and became white. This deceptively minor test was one of the things which began to convince me that if we turned our own circle of colours, we could turn into beings of light.

You probably already have some understanding about what archetypes mean and may be wondering what’s different about these. The answer is that the Twelve Archetypes described herein are based on real, visible and demonstrative energies. Carl Jung made explorations into Archetypes, identifying mainly four, naming them The Self, The Shadow, The Anima or Animus and The Persona, although he suspected that there may be others, possibly twelve. Other people have developed their own systems, but this Work is by far the most advanced, in that the Archetypes are not theoretical, subjective, nebulous or speculative. They are based on real living energies - the Four Elements; Earth, Water, Fire and Air, the basis of all life on earth. At this point, some may decide to dismiss this Work, considering the Elements to be an outdated approach, which has been superseded. This is merely the Air Element talking. I can assure the Air types that this work is perfectly logical and if they open their minds and practice as advised, they will see for themselves and be satisfied. Why am I so sure? Because the Air Element is strong in myself and I accept nothing until I have proved the logic of it for myself. Pause for a moment and consider what your life would be like without water, heat, oxygen, your body, a home planet. Do you still exist in your present form? Can you live without the Elements? If you think that none of it matters because you’re going to die and move to a better place, then this Work probably won’t reach you. I hope, however, that the fact that you hold it in your hands means you are willing to read on.

In part two you will discover who they are and how to bring them to life in yourself. Let me make this clear right away. The female ones do not apply solely to women, nor the male ones to men. Using this work will break sexist stereotypes and free us to use all parts of ourselves. It will help to think of them in terms of Yin and Yang, opposite, dynamic energies which combine to make up a whole, whatever the biological sex. The purpose of this Work is to get our consciousness moving. I have sprinkled quotes throughout the book, which illustrate that others have shared many of the same insights. Here is a glimpse of the Twelve.
