The intellectual warrior is the kind of person you find in the city with a sharp suit and an even sharper mind. You are intellectual, competitive, feisty, independent, strong, courageous and inspired. You enjoy the city and culture and love people and ideas. This is the energy of progress and social justice. You are likely to conform to society's structure and be really successful in it or completely rebel. In love and relationships you seek a fellow warrior – a partner in crime! – with whom you can fight alongside, sharing in life’s adventures , and someone with whom you have an intellectual meeting of minds. You demand autonomy, respect and to be treated as an equal. However, with your fighting spirit and fierce intellect, you can become isolated or unsure of your place in the world. You can become trapped in your own armour and unable to express your vulnerability and softness. In addition, you can be too much in your head, losing your relationship to your body and the physical world. You may lose balance and grounding, be intellectually exhausted, physically distant from others, or stressed and ill through pushing yourself too hard. See the woman in this picture? Even when she is 'relaxing', her mind is on overdrive, devouring the words in front of her, sparking ideas, thinking about her next move... She can be working HARD doing nothing... Sound familiar? You will thrive and find balance when you are able to make peace with your vulnerable side and find ways to return to your body. In addition, using your lively mind, fierce spirit and commitment to civilisation is the key to having a stronger sense of purpose and finding your place in the world. If you are ready to find ways to inspire, sharpen, and ease your mind all at the same time then a Soul Stuff membership may be just the thing for you. If offers high quality, bite sized, engaging, and consistent way to maintain your mindset. Find out more here:
Think of the wild one with a bow and arrow - both a protector and a hunter. A modern day expression of this would be something like the character of Katniss in ‘The Hunger Games’ – solitary, athletic, brave, and at home in nature. However, the wild one is more physical, more in sync with nature, more free, and with a strong relationship to their own body including sexuality. You thrive on physical activity. You are autonomous and aggressive in protecting your own freedom. Your relationship to nature is truly that of the wilds; you are more of a wolf than a lamb and are at one with the rhythms and cycles of nature, thus holding great wisdom and knowledge. You are also concerned with protecting the environment. You feel a deep desire to express their wild nature and long for a lifestyle in the outdoors. A city life will not give you an outlet for your strong physical energy. You have a practical nature and physical strength. You are solitary and independent by nature and may find that you have trouble integrating into society and having relationships of any kind. You can become alienated and use physical activity as a form of escape. You a strong need to roam free and are unlikely to fill roles such as parent, career person, or spouse in the conventional way. Because of this, you may well have explored alternative ways of living, be this in community settings or simply within your own home. Despite your independent ways, your quiet but strong demeanour, athletic stature, and ferocious energy can be magnetic to others. Finding balance will mean being able to choose when you are wild and when you step into a different energy for your own benefit and for other people. You will most be able to thrive when your alone time is by choice and when you can really relate to others and allow yourself stronger foundations in society through relationships and your career. If you don't have enough wild energy in your life right now, then the answer is to get out of places that are too structured - even the gym! - and instead find ways to be physical that are more exhilerating. See the woman in this picture? She is in her element facing the elements and she is exhilarated, ready for the wilds, ready to be brave, ready to be really 'in' nature. She feels it from the tips of her toes, this joy of being in her body and CHARGED for action... Sound familiar?If you are ready to step fully into the power of your wild nature while finding ways to connect then a Soul Stuff membership may be just the thing for you. It offers high quality, bite sized, varied ways of maintaining your personal development and keeping your momentum. Find out more here.
The deep spirit likes to reside in the realm of the mystical and the departed. You are very inward looking and have an unassuming manner. You possess a mysterious charm and intensity and have an ethereal quality; there is even perhaps an air of vulnerability about you - or maybe a disconcerting sense of knowingness! You may well have to conceal your ability to cross over into the unknown because others find it unsettling. You have a deep awareness of things that are not consciously understood and this may cause you to seem disconnected from the real world of scientific materialism. This can leave you feeling isolated and misunderstood, particularly when branded strange by those who do not understand you. You may be secretive and reclusive. Your heightened sensory capacity and connectedness to the energy of the world surrounding you can make her you very sensitive, which leads to an even greater need to retreat. In addition, your knowledge of the underworld and your relationship to it can mean that you suffer by experiencing the hurt and pain associated. You can become overwhelmed. However, if you combine this vision and sensitivity to your environment with a stronger disposition then you can be an invaluable member of a community, possessing wisdom and heightened knowledge.You have knowledge of hidden and dark places and this enables you to guide others through its darkness, through the unknown, and through the aspects of living that people most fear. You are a powerful healer grief, loss, fear, or any difficult emotion or experience. If you do not work in this field, it can make you a fierce leader in any context.

Think of the nurterer as the earth mother (or earth father!) - someone who channels creativity, birth and rebirth.

The Big Heart is all about love, beauty and sexuality. You recognises the senses and sexuality as a sacred gift and enthusiastically engage in them. You are celebrated and loved for your attractiveness, warmth and charm. However, just looking at the surface will not capture all your facets. You are driven by gratification of the senses; you appreciate and create art, you seek pleasure, and you love to dress up and adorn yourself. You see life as an adventure, take advantage of chance opportunities, and have something of the free spirit about you. You are motivated by connection to others, romance and eroticism. You are essentially a people person, relationships are central to your life, and you will be surrounded by others in whatever you do. You want to feel connected and have loving relationships on a social, romantic and professional level – you are truly heart-centred.However, you are a hopeless romantic. Your open and loving heart is both a source of joy and pain. You do not always command the loyalty, generosity and forgiveness that you offer to your lovers, friends, and family, and as a result you frequently suffer a broken heart. When wounded, you also encompass the properties of secret passion, jealousy and betrayal. You may have been both the exploited and the exploiter. You have battled with stereotypes and culturally imposed, none of which match your playful, deep, expressive, and joyous relationship to your pleasure. You enjoy connecting with others this way. You know that your sensuality is your own to be enjoyed and celebrated. You do not cater for the needs and fantasies of others but for mutual exchanges of pleasure.Finding balance for you means being able to develop such boring and serious things such as responsibilty, foundations, and being strategic about the connections that you make. You need a foundation of safety in order to be able to enjoy your playfulness and protect your own big heart.
