"I can sense conflict in others before it even arises. This enables me to temper my own actions and/or words to disperse the conflict."

The Peacemaker


Who is this Archetype?

The Peacemaker can dissolve barriers to peace and knows precisely when it’s time to act and speak transparently from her heart. She cultivates internal balance, emotional awareness, and responsibility to bring balance into life. 

Standing as a set of scales, balancing high emotions in one hand and clear resolution in the other,  the Peacemaker finds solutions by meeting people halfway, seeking a win-win and settling matters creatively with a sense of justice. She brings clarity as a diplomat who weighs each situation on its merits. She sees her own and others’ weaknesses without judging. She knows that for growth, there has to be a certain amount of friction

Many things in life are emotionally driven and not rational. There is an emotional maturity to the Peacemaker. People can feel her wisdom, strength, softness and vulnerability and open up to her her presence has the power to shift the energy of any situation and move everyone present into calm and harmony

Physically, conflict resolution regulates the pH in our bodies, representing the fine balance between acid and alkaline that counts for so much of our wellbeing. In intimate relationships, the Peacemaker establishes and maintains the boundary between what is outside and what is inside the body. She determines who to be intimate with, when, and the bonding roles that will be played out. 

The Peacemaker has a penetrating energy that can break into people's energy fields, creating friction when she steps into another person’s aura. The friction created when this archetype steps into another person's aura creates electromagnetics, which are emotional and energetic not seductive.  As the gatekeeper of the flood of emotions through the solar plexus she resolves the imbalance. As a resonance is reached, the energy opens, and intimacy can proceed

The Peacemaker knows that intimacy waited for has the possibility of being nurturing, so she discriminates emotionally and sexually. She knows if she doesn’t wait, the relationship won’t feel nurturing and will, consequently, fall apart. She wants to discern and evaluate before penetration can happen and communicates clearly when she is open or closed to intimacy. 

Sexually, she gets clarity over time. When it is right for her, she drops all defenses and lets down any guard

The Peacemaker flourishes through relationships, and her transparency and balanced demeanor make her a cherished partner

Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of Emotions

Dilemma: Protection


Repressive Nature:


You are concerned with maintaining peace between people, regardless of the cost. You compromise yourself in order to maintain control of your emotional environment. This is the defense pattern of over-attentiveness. You sweep conflict under the carpet by adopting any behavior that will keep it at bay. The problem here is that unless conflict is dealt with transparently, it tends to eventually explode. Since you are putting on a false mask, you will invoke unconscious distrust in others. You tend to draw tactless people to you, resulting in spectacularly dysfunctional relationships and family dynamics.

From the Gene Keys

Reactive Nature:


You are always finding yourself in difficult emotional situations, which you make worse by giving vent to your anger as well as projecting it onto others. You are unable to take responsibility for your own volatile feelings. Your most common defense is to lash out and then storm away. Your dilemma is that you are deaf to your own lack of tact. You assume that the problem is always in the other person, which, unfortunately, earns you no friends and makes it very difficult for others to get close to you, unless they are over-attentive and submissive.

From the Gene Keys
