"Medicine Woman is the soul of healing. The deep feminine that will heal you. And will in turn heal the world."
Lucy H Pearce.




Who is this Archetype?

Here we find a voice that says–I remember. This is the Medicine Woman–the wise storyteller, the elder, the shaman–embodied in one being. She has the power to express all sides of any story as well as showing us what we might learn from it. Her purpose is to reveal the underlying secrets or lessons of any experience. 


The Medicine Woman is a collector of authentic life experience and weaves this into a magical moral. Her memory is infinite. She carries the memories of her whole lineage–everyone that came before her, everything that came before her. 


Her story is strong and healing medicine. Her favorite way of sharing is through the container of ceremony. The tribe gathers around the bonfire, each of the members ready to feel it all and receive their unique revelations. She never points fingers. She doesn’t need to. She holds it all. The ceremony carries the energy and wisdom that transforms, integrates, and unveils


The Medicine Woman is comfortable with discomfort. In the ceremony, we often have to descend into the underworld. Accept the darkness, face our shadows, sit with the pain, the wounds. It’s through this medicine that humanity remembers why we came here and what our individual purpose is. The first step in awakening is realizing that we’ve been asleep. To look at what we’ve walked around, avoided, ignored, silenced. 


The Medicine woman knows when to retreat and integrate. She shows that retreat and integration bring strength and clarity about wisdom garnered during an experience or ceremony. Through this archetype, we start perceiving life itself as a ceremony in which we all have a unique and essential role to play.

Revelation, Wisdom Keeper, Ceremony, Integration






Leo - Fixed Fire


Internal Motivator:

Sharing the akashic records


Positive Attributes:

Infinite capacity to remember

Has the unique medicine


Achilles Heel:

Needs retreat to not burn out


Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of Your Memories

Dilemma: Attention


Repressive Nature:


You find it very difficult to communicate with others and often cannot break out of your own silence. You may have the experience of being forgotten by the world. Your natural tendency is to simply hide from people, and you usually find all kinds of ways to do this—in your work, through an enforced discipline or life choice, by living in isolation or far from others, or simply through a deep psychological insecurity that keeps you in a kind of torpor or numbness. You find it very difficult to stay in relationships since intimacy demands that you come out of your shell.

From the Gene Keys

Reactive Nature:


You have an invasive behavior pattern that unconsciously tries to provoke reactions in others in order not to feel alone. You can be adept at understanding the emotional locks that keep others in a state of forgetting. Thus you try to get attention by pointing out the negative patterns of others, sometimes under the guise of helping them. This almost always achieves the desired reaction—anger—from the other person. However, this way of getting attention is obviously extremely self-destructive and unsatisfying. It leads to a build up in resentment and creates more anger until an inevitable explosion ensues.

From the Gene Keys

Questions to Consider:

What does ceremony mean to you?

What makes you uncomfortable in your life?  What do you do when you are uncomfortable?

How do you respond when someone brings up the past?

What are you able to hold?  What are you not able to hold?

What do you do with the triggers?

What are your practicies? 

Do you know when to retreat?  What does retreat look like for you?

What wounds have you integrated?  What shifted in you as a result of the integration?

Do you have a mindfulness practice?

What is meditation to you?

How do you take care of yourself?

Do you listen to your body?

What is your relationship to your body?  Do you listen to it?  Do you use it to discern?

What elements of gaia nurture you?

What is your sacred medicine?


"When we step into the river of love, we are not going with the flow of life rather than swimming against the current."
Don Jose Ruiz


The Medicine Wheel is a tool of the Medicine Woman.


One of the principle aims of Shamanism is to dispel the false idea that you are not enough.
Don Jose Ruiz
Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not the eyes of another.
Peggy Andreas
Find the place in your body from which the wellspring flows.  Be with it. Experience your flow.
The Medicine Woman
A Shaman’s Path begins with her own Body and involves the generation, control, storage, channeling, exchange, and release of energy.

Phone Backgrounds

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.

Use these phone backgrounds as a reminder for you through the transit.

"The trick is to fall in love with your own story and follow it without holding anything back."
The Medicine Woman
The Medicine Path by Bella Krystal
Thank you Great Teacher
Thank you Nature


I saw everything and everything made sense
when I resisted the impulse to turn away
and escape to not see, to not suffer
I already knew everything
but without being an example in the world


I was fighting my own power
cutting the flow of life
in the illusion of control


Knowing in the heart
is not the same as
living from the heart


Living from love
Loving for real
without judging and labelling
without creating false identifications of love
Leaving aside duality,
the perceived separation, and the doubt
Serving Love through Love
as innocent guardians of Mother Earth
children of the Sun and generations of eternal wisdom
Trust that everything is good
In Truth there is no other option


I am you
You are me
We love ourselves or we reject ourselves
and the precious twin in front of us
Relationships are magical mirrors
That allow us see


Including or cutting
Forgiving or judging
Being present or absent
Going further or stay
where we perceive it more comfortable
Living half truths
waiting for tomorrow to grow


Love or the absence of love
is the only thing that exists
The absence of love is our hell
our great illusion


Because love is in everything
It's our essence
where we can come back, always
and choose to take the Red Road
Loving more, including more
on the Path of the Heart


Put thumb tips together, then place knuckles back to back, interlocking slightly. And turn inward.
