"The more you are able to settle into a deep trust and patience with the rhythm of your own life, the more your heart will open and the softer and more yielding you will become in your attitude to everything and everyone that comes your way."

The Rhythmic


Who is this Archetype?

The Rhythmic experiences rhythm deeply, like the natural pulse in his cells, in his DNA, and enjoys fixed rhythms and tempos, experiences them like heartbeats and breaths. The Rhythmic  finds great satisfaction in mundane rituals and routines that attune him to the vibrations of all life. He stays true to his own inner rhythms in order to stay vital, healthy and always in his flow. For the Rhythmic, even intimacy and work has a pattern, consistency, and rhythm.


The Rhythmic fixes the pattern of all life, holding all creatures and humans together in a wider universal rhythm, creating resonance through his heart and breath, and naturally adjusts the tempo the timbre, so the rhythm is always harmonized and not forced. Out of this archetype emerges a deep sense of security that comes as a result of everything following a universal flow.


The Rhythmic is intimately connected to the Wildwoman (15), who encourages him to stretch and grow though he can be uncomfortable when she disrupts his routine. He, in turn, helps the Wildwoman to not fall into unhealthy extremes. The Rhythmic also has a close relationship to the Heroine (35), and she impacts him similarly to the Wildwoman. The Heroine lives a life rich in experience, always ready and hungry to try something new. She samples many different things in life in order to learn from them. Her deepest talent is for adventure and that is not exactly how the Rhythmic lives his life . Being forced to deviate from his natural rhythms can be physically, mentally and emotionally destabilizing for The Rhythmic. Understanding and appreciating what each brings to the flow helps him embrace and transcend challenges.


For the Rhythmic, waiting isn't stopping; instead, it's an active state, much like being pregnant. Waiting is a part of his nature—he honors it and relaxes into the flow of life. He trusts his innate sense of timing, sets his intentions and long term goals, then falls back on the reassuring confidence that everything will proceed in its own time. The Rhythmic knows that nothing happens by accident or without a potential gift. Knowing this, the rhythm of patience is natural to him.

Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of Impatience

Dilemma: Surrender


Repressive Nature:


When impatience drives a person to give up on life, it manifests as pessimism. Pessimism is nothing but the vestige of a complete loss of rhythm in your life. It is an expression of a deep-seated fear that nothing can or will ever get better. Pessimism pulls you into a downward spiral, feeding on itself over and over until it finally ends in crisis or some kind of psychological and/or nervous collapse. If you have been swept into pessimism there is nothing proactive you can do to break free. 

From the Gene Keys

 Reactive Nature:


You are constantly trying to force life’s flow. You push others around, becoming tetchy and aggravated, and can suddenly lash out for no apparent reason. You also tend to manifest very inharmonious situations where natural timing is out of synchronization and nothing seems easy, as though life were deliberately blocking one’s path. Even so, you stubbornly push on, making the situation worse and worse until something or someone has to snap in order to release the pressure.

From the Gene Keys

Questions to Consider:

Do you have a daily rhythm?

Do you need a consistent routine to feel normal? How does the rhythm of a consistent routine affect you? Does it open you up? Shut you down?

What daily ritual can you start today to honor your desire for healthy routines?  

How do you experience time? The timing of your day? Do you need control of the timing of your day? How does it affect you if someone else controls the timing of your day?

How does it affect  you that your partner or family members want to do the same thing every night?

Where in your life—and with whom—are you feeling most impatient?

What sparks impatience in you?

 What can you do to shake things up? 

What do you need to do each day to honor yourself? Your loved ones?

Are you getting enough time outside?

Do you look forward to the new day? Or do you dread it?

When have you felt trapped or propelled?

When does your compulsion to help create more challenge than ease?

When in your life have you experienced being in sync? When synchronicities abounded?

When have you felt like a day late and a dollar short? When nothing seems to be working out for you?

What do you need to do to reconnect with the natural world?

When do you make yourself or others wrong?

How are you patient or impatient with yourself? What could you do, believe, to be more patient with yourself?

When has your intuition about divine timing created magic in your life?

How do you experience open heartedness? Wholeheartedness?

Is it easier to be open and wholehearted with others? Self? Are both easy? Natural?

How do you know when your vibration is high? What happens? What does it feel like?

Can you fully trust in life’s perfect timing and that nothing happens accidentally?
