THE ETERNAL CHILD
CHAOS - INNOVATION - INNOCENCE
WHO IS THIS ARCHETYPE?
The Eternal Child embraces all the trials involved with new beginnings and fresh starts. It is a creative genius that loves mutation and transformation. The Eternal Child trusts life fully and can’t understand why everyone doesn’t. It imagines with innocence and wholeheartedness in every new adventure. Play is the keyword.
The process can look like a pile of scattered Lego blocks. This archetype knows how to turn the mess into a beautiful city of possibilities. It doesn’t try to control or avoid chaos. It plays with it instead, and sees chaos as an essential part of the process.
On the other side of things, the Eternal Child isn’t afraid to tear down what it has just created. There is no clinging to old structures. This archetype knows how to embrace the chaos and confusion, and so there is no need to hold on to anything. It also understands that there is nothing wrong in destruction, and is able to transform anything through the process of creativity and play.
The Eternal Child is connected to the Magician archetype - which controls the timing of when and how things can be actualized in the outer world. The Eternal Child needs the structure of the Magician to successfully share its innovative qualities with the world in a way that has long-lasting impact. The Eternal Child has accepted the fact that bringing order out of chaos is a process that takes time.
This archetype knows that whenever something new is introduced, it can meet resistance and difficulty. It is therefore necessary to become organized, prepare the infrastructure, and ensure that everything is set up for the transition into something new. The Eternal Child learns by experience that patience and a solid foundation are key. This allows the change to be proven as worthy of long-term integration.

Your deep-seated fear that life is simply based on chance leads to one of the first great human control mechanisms — that of anal retention. Fear activates a subtle restriction of the muscles around the anus, which in turn affects your entire breathing pattern. As your breathing becomes shallower and shallower, the fear manifests through your need to maintain control over your life.
From the Gene Keys
You have no predictable direction, rhythm, or purpose. You bring a chaotic vibration that sometimes comes out in the form of aggression, sometimes anarchy, and always destruction. Every time you stop trusting in life and believe in your fears, you begin to co-create the vibration of chaos. Whenever that fear turns into anger, it carries a destructive force that will inevitably come back to haunt you.
From the Gene Keys
Questions to Consider:
Are you pushing or forcing in any areas of your life?
Are you clinging to old structures and foundations?
What external anchor points in your life create the illusion of security for you? (ie. job, house, relationship) What would it look like to release your dependence on them?
Do you have a sense of “right timing” when it comes to starting new things?
What does divine timing mean to you?
Does your life feel disordered and chaotic?
When faced with chaos, how does your body respond?
Can you think of situations where you have been too anal trying to mantain control?
Are you practicing playfulness in your life?
What adventure is calling you?
What does life look like through the eyes of a child?

“We are, ourselves, creations. And we, in turn, are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves.” Julia Cameron
Gene Key Title: Through the Eyes of a Child
Chaos – Invention – Innocence
Victim of Chaotic Mind
Shadow: From Chaos to Cosmos (Chaos)
“In the old views, we humans are the victims of our selfish genes; in the new view, there are no victims, only a huge interconnected and interdependent cosmos.”
Gift: The End of the Island Mentality (Innovation)
“Who, what and wherever you are, if you are not continually transcending, then you are dying.”
Siddhi: All Play and No Work (Innocence)
“One thing is certain: consciousness will never grow up. It will keep on exploring, playing and experimenting forever.”
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 of you and out of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.
