"The Gift of Freshness relies on one immortal truth—creativity can never be controlled."
"Fire is the greatest creative archetype since it not only consumes but also transforms."
"True beauty is emptiness."

The Spark


Who is this Archetype?

The Spark has an immense capacity for creativity, loves finding fresh forms of expression that explore new avenues and breaking new ground. He is here to create for the sake of creativity rather than creating for any recognition or reward.


When the Spark simply becomes completely immersed in creativity without any goal, he has the greatest chance of actually being discovered. When he is in his element, his creativity is invaluable to any project or endeavor. The Spark will automatically inject life and light into any group of people he is part of.


Creatively different from everyone else, the Spark is driven by a strength of purpose, and his creativity is rooted in a philosophy of “I have to do it my way.” He attracts attention and, paradoxically, prefers to work alone, left to his own devices. His true power lies in his ability to be alone with himself and to trust in the power of his own uniqueness and timing.


This archetype is often singled out by others as a natural born leader. At the same time, he finds himself reluctant to assume any leadership role since he is not at all interested in being followed by others.


It's crucial for the Spark to always have a satisfying outlet for creative self-expression. If this element is missing, it will create a heavy weight on his soul. When he is feeling down, depressed, or wants to escape from his feelings, the Spark knows he is in the middle of a process. His body is recharging and something deep and original is growing inside of him. The Spark has learned to trust and allow his emotions to pass through. He embraces sadness and entropy.


As he surrenders to the void, unexpectedly, there will be a spark. From this spark, he will suddenly feel energized and see the world with a fresh perspective. When he accepts the feelings of darkness, the truth of his aliveness, joy and beauty will shine through when the timing is right. There is no way of forcing or controlling creativity.

Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of Numbness

Dilemma: Numbness

Repressive Nature:


 States of depression can be caused by the freezing of a low frequency emotional state due to mental collapse rooted in fear. Once fear takes over the physical system, the entropy goes on pulling more and more energy away from the surface of your life. Such states can occur at different levels—some can be permanent, others sporadic. Some can leave one bed-ridden while others can simply take away the luster in one’s eyes. Once a depressive state has been fixed, it can only be broken by the individual and without help. The individual must face down the very fear that caused the depression and shift the frequency of their attitude on all levels.

From the Gene Keys

 Reactive Nature:


The reactive side of this Shadow manifests as a frenetic urge to escape the way one is feeling at all costs. Instead of moving in harmony with entropy by closing your door and being alone, you immediately increase your activity and contact with others. You become frenetic in a bid to suppress what is going on inside you, and can become engaged in wild schemes or locked in monotonous patterns that quickly undermine your health. You may even put yourself in great danger because you are moving in the opposite direction from the chemistry of your body. Your urge to escape your feelings opens you to all kinds of illnesses in your body that would otherwise never have troubled you.

From the Gene Keys

Questions to Consider:

What do you do when you face the feelings of a heavy soul?

Do you trust your feelings? Your uniqueness?  Your timing?

Which of your emotions do you not want to feel? How do you try to push your feelings  away?

Do you often find yourself judging, overanalyzing or trying to get rid of certain feelings? How does this impact your body and wellbeing?

Do you ever experience numbness or feel numb?  Think about when you felt numb--what was going on in your life?

Are wild schemes or monotonous patterns common in your life?

Do you like to work alone?

Do your creations feel fresh? Original?

What do you feel and do when others want to follow your lead?

Do you experience entropy?  If yes, do you experience it as incubation or a fertile state of awareness, or do you resist it, judge it?

How do you express yourself in creative ways? Is creativity a priority in your life? How important is self-expression to you?

When was the last time you drew a picture, invented a delicious recipe, danced, told a story, decorated your house, or wrote a song?

How does your creativity spark?


"This is the true meaning of Freshness—to be a clear vessel for the creative process so that evolution can move through you and find its way towards a permanent state of eventual love, beauty and unity."
- The Spark
"Creativity simply comes when it comes, and when it is absent, there is nothing for you to do but wait and relax."
-The Spark

"When you suddenly find yourself blind and lost, the best thing to do is to stay still and allow it to pass gently through your system, giving it the minimum mental attention possible."
- The Spark
"Beauty lies in the unity of all. True beauty, when manifested and realized in a human being, presupposes a state of union with the totality."
-The Spark

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 within you and outside of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.
