‘Holding the Key’. A mural by Jade Rivera, Barranco, Lima. (Photo by JJM – April 2019.)

We are Destined to be Co-Creators and Free Will is the Key. The interesting thing is that the source (the Source) and force of creativity, (creative energy) flows through humans, which then leads to the creation of new paradigms. Energy creates through us – we are the channels for Source energy on earth, but we are not (the main) Source itself.

We are remote extensions of Source, so remote that many of us are not aware of our connection to Source. As channels of Source we are collaborating with Source. At the same time we are also autonomous energy configurations. That is because we all come into this world as an energy archetype – we could call this our borne identity. Each person’s born identity – the archetype he or she was born as – is an energy configuration (an energy frequency) because in fact it comprises a combination of a number of archetypes, with the main core archetype being dominant.

Each person’s born archetype configuration is his or her energy imprint that lies deeper than the socialisation or environmental factors that would usually play a role in personality formation during childhood. This is the foundation and framework of the authentic deep-Self. It is the vessel of each individual’s true identity. This archetype is largely hidden to most people, but it lies at the core of each human’s being.

The borne archetype is the foundation of each person’s deep authentic individuality and can take a lifetime to fully uncover. Many people concentrate mainly on developing their ego-personalities (which is also important) or their personas (the masks that we present to the world), but they neglect to delve deep into their authentic selves.

Each person’s individual autonomy stems from free will, something that humans are uniquely endowed with, as opposed to other species. With free will we are able to completely shut out or deny our awareness of our connection to Source and many of us do. This is because the combination of our ego-selves and free will can give us the illusion that we are already whole, or that we are already fully developed autonomous beings and therefore, by implication, why would we need to be connected to a Source?

Free will naturally makes us want to be independent from Source, which leads to ego-development (which is also important), but it can lead to people not choosing to also go down the deeper self-development road. Holistic self-development would also encompass spiritual development, which many people shy away from. However, it is through the spiritual developmental path that we can arrive at a realisation of our true connection with Source.

Ironically, although free will makes us want to be independent from Source, many of us lack the will to be sufficiently independent from society (from group-consciousness). This tends to result in an oscillation between the ego-self and the group-self, with the real-Self being neglected.

All of us are born into this world with great potential and great purpose. That borne purpose is indeed for each and every one of us to co-create along with the creative Source Energy in the universe and to thereby also be drivers of evolution right here on earth (…and there some of us thought that we were just insignificant humans who are of no real consequence…) However, there are two important requirements for becoming conscious co-creators. First of all, co-creation requires humility. Secondly it requires making a commitment to work with and for Source through free will.

Although the human ego is very important, because it allows us to form our individual personalities that we use to interact with the outside world, it can also get in the way of co-creation. That is because co-creating consciously with the universal Source Energy is a divine act. When we co-create we need to do so from our higher-Self, which can only be accessed by bypassing the ego-self. 

To co-create consciously and continuously one would need to be able to operate or live from one’s higher-Self much of the time, which would require ongoing spiritual maintenance and development (and a lot of self-knowledge). Such continuous spiritual development would then result in the ongoing humility that is required for divine co-creation with Source.

Free will is the required key for activating and entering the co-creation teamwork process. In other words, we have to willingly and consciously commit ourselves to becoming co-creators. We have to activate ourselves within our given roles as co-creators through a conscious decision to be of service to Source by becoming conduits of Source. Our well-developed authentic-Self would then form a conscious partnership with the Creative Source.

We bring our gifts and talents (gifted through our archetypes), our skills and abilities (developed through life experience, work and education) and our free will and commitment to the conscious co-creation project. We also bring natural confidence, without developing a “god-complex”, because a well developed authentic-Self has confidence that does not stem from ego-consciousness.

The problem with ego is that it is rarely mature enough to deal with divine matters, so the divine aspect of the co-creation process is often lost when ego gets in the way. What happens is that ego tends to want to take control of the direction and often loses its way (it also tends to want to bask in all the glory), because it loses sight of the divine influence that is present in the individual’s person’s positive creative output. Humility therefore remains a key ingredient for being in line with one’s higher-Self.

Co-creation and collaboration with the universe on a conscious level can only occur from our higher-, core-, true-Self (our Soul-Self) because that is where the link (the umbilical cord) to Source resides. There is therefore a process that needs to be followed. Once the commitment from our side is made for conscious co-creation with Source and should we not yet know what our inherent purpose is, our individual purpose needs to be identified first. Doing that would provide the direction and momentum required for moving ahead with the co-creation process.

Some people have a strong sense of purpose from a young age, others develop it along the way. Most people discover it through long-term self-development and dedicated spiritual exploration as it takes time to learn how to differentiate between all the different components of the psyche, i.e. the ego-self, the persona (the false self), the idealised-self (the hypothetical ‘perfect-self) and the authentic Self (the real-Self, higher-Self or core-Self).

There are several ways that one can unlock knowledge of one’s purpose. The easiest and most natural way is to simply ask the Creative Source to show the way. This could be done through whichever method a person is most comfortable with, whether through meditation, prayer or simply posing the question to Source in thought. By having trust in receiving an answer, an answer will come, either through signs, events, circumstances or opportunities. The important thing is to look out for the answer and to accept it when it arrives.

Fortunately there are also very good tools available for assisting in the self-discovery and personal development processes. Well known typology (personality) tests such as MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), mainly based on the work of renowned Swiss psychologist C.G. Jung, and The Enneagram of Personality, partially based on the teachings of mystic George Gurdjieff, are very useful in identifying a person’s inherent temperament and archetype which would by definition also point to one’s purpose.

One of the most advanced solutions for accurately identify one’s born purpose is by learning about your born energy configuration. The sacred Mayan Cross gifted to the world by the ancient Maya civilisation, offers a very deep and accurate method for learning about your born energy archetype with it’s accompanying energetic life purpose.

Just like MBTI and Enneagram, The Mayan Cross requires time and dedication in order to fully appreciate and understand how all its components fit together. You can however more or less instantaneously get an overview of your personal energy profile with The Mayan Cross, whereas the other two tools require filling in a questionnaire in each case, which requires you to know yourself relatively well in the first place.

The Mayan Cross comprises a blend of the deep study of galactic energy forces, ancient Mayan cosmology and telluric earth energies and it is specifically designed as a tool for human development. When getting an advanced report (a reading) about your Mayan Cross it will not only reveal your main personality archetype with its characteristics and purpose, but also your personal energy balance (your yin and yang archetypes). In addition it will reveal your past archetype (your energetic heritage with it’s purpose) and importantly, your future archetype (your destiny in terms of your purpose.)

By concentrating on your present and future archetypes (and their combined purpose), while also getting to know your yin and yang components, a person can then move forward in balance with a deep sense of meaning and purpose. A natural sense of inner confidence is the result of following this path as the individual becomes aware of a certain natural order in the universe, one where each one of us has a divine, predestined role to play as conscious co-creators along with the divine Creative Source energy.

When working with any of the above tools we realize that all people are creative and that all people therefore have something to offer as co-creators. It does however become clear that there is a lot of diversity in how people are endowed with creativity. Not all archetypes would be equally good at the same activities. For example, not everyone would be equally talented in terms of becoming a fine artist. Neither would all archetypes be equally good as engineers or scientists or writers, but all human talents – as gifted through our archetypes – can be applied creatively and in a way to specifically co-create.

In other words we can positively direct our individual creative potential consciously for it to be purposeful when we do our work and when we practice our creative persuits (such as the hobbies, crafts or community work  that we are involved in), with the specific objective to also facilitate positive evolution for the greater good.

An advantage of the aforementioned self-analysis tools is that they give us an understanding of how each archetype has a lower, immature self and a higher, mature self. So once you have identified your archetype you can then analyse your own behaviour or thoughts through honest self-reflection and self-observation and match that with the description of a well-developed version or less developed version of your archetype. You can then place yourself on a scale of development and identify areas to improve in order to reach a higher form of yourself.

Of course, the intention to become a better version of yourself in the first place must exist in order to benefit from these tools and it goes without saying that there would be a lot of personal work (on yourself) involved. This takes courage. It is also where humility comes in, because it can be very hard for the ego to accept that its personality has flaws – but there can be no gain without pain.

People who have a natural love and passion for the world we live in, regardless of how flawed and broken it may seem to be, and for all living things, are already active as natural co-creators, whether they ae fully conscious of it or not. Although such people seem to be very rare (actually most people have just suppressed their capacity for compassion, or haven’t developed it fully) and although love and compassion may not seem like a natural state of being (considering the presence of so much malevolence in the world, especially at present), developing compassion is a core key for co-creation, because without care for others and the world (the planet and the environment) one cannot and will not want to co-create.

A shortcut to co-creation would be to develop compassion and empathy with the intention to use it consistently, which should generate the motivation for wanting to be a force for positive change. This will help bring about the necessary energetic correction that is required to re-balance the world, which (as co-creators) is in fact our very purpose here on earth.

As we presently transition into a new paradigm (a new metaphysical energy framework) which is happening due to The Shift of the Ages (as predicted by many ancient belief systems), right now is a crucial time for conscious co-creators to step forward. Their role is to creatively colour in the framework of the new paradigm as it forms, so that future generations can drink the sweet nectar of that which was created with Love in service and in partnership with the Divine Creative Source in the universe.

  1. Greetings Jacques! I very much enjoyed this and it helped me clarify the Truth of free will. I was looking for a deeper truth of it, and of course it’s nature.

    The archetypes we talked about so long ago, have finally found the understanding. Like the optical illusions human eyes see, because the mind first turns to the truth it expects in the first impression. So we are accessing a current truth of our self all the time. I see how the calendar offers a provision for this – breaking through old truth of identity by guiding us to look through a different perspective ever day. Changing our personal truth would be inevitable, through seeing things in different ways, and making conscious choices of new truth. Whatever we do consciously, seems to generate the greatest transformations of truth.

    Thanks so much for so much to think about.
    I was thinking about you on 8 Serpent/CHICCHAN – hope it was an awesome one.

    • Greetings, Debra! I’m glad that you found answers in this piece. I was prompted to clarify my own thoughts on the subject when an opportunity came up recently to submit my thoughts to a project that deals with the nature of Truth.

      I like how you describe the first impressions of the mind (through they eyes) as optical illusions – very well put – because the mind does not know the deeper truth or deeper reality or underlying context – or, indeed, the underlying archetype/s…

      Here’s an example: we may have certain people in our lives (as friends or family member for example) not knowing – especially in the case of friends – why they are in our lives (if we don’t know their archetype) , so we consider it purely random coincidence:

      Our lives crossed so we met and then became friends. Yet, very often our friends and family members and other people that feature prominently in our lives are (have the same) archetypes as some of the (other) archetype on our Mayan Cross. Coincidence? Well, it can’t be. There is an energetic pattern to our lives and that would include many of the people in our lives.

      Fascinating stuff – but one would only get to know this if you study the Mayan Cross and get to know the archetypes of the people around you (and sometimes we have an a-ha moment when you get to know a person’s archetype).

      Let’s say for example you have had a difficult person in your life in the past – chances are that that person energetically brought challenges to you in life for you to grow and overcome certain things – and that it was ordered by the universe…

      How would one know? Does the person’s energy (archetype) feature in your Mayan Cross? This puts a whole different perspective on things, I would say. Because if it were just random there could be no real point to the challenges that some people can cause us.

      Of course it can be difficult to accept that the universe itself would want anyone to be cruel to us (if that were ever the case), but if such a person appears on/in our Mayan Cross, well perhaps we have to consider that life is a divine, but very tough learning ground (at times).

      Of course many people will also cross our paths who do not appear on our Mayan Cross, so there may well be some randomness involved too, but even that seems unlikely from the perspective that everything in the universe is ordered – which tends to grow as we spend time with the Mayan Cross. These are just a few thoughts I have and thought I’d share in terms of breaking through to new truths.

      As you also said, every day we have the ability to look through ‘new eyes’ due to the changing energy on a daily basis (when we follow the Mayan Tzolkin calendar). So, we can also see through the ‘eyes’ – or experience the energy – our those we consider our adversaries… and friends – and we have ample time, because the energies of days come around very 13 and every 20 days and the combined energies every 260.

      It’s very interesting how the Mayans bring their children up from a young age to know and feel the energies daily – which means they very likely know the energies and therefore characteristics of the people the interact with on a daily basis (from early on in their lives.)

      There’s an interesting article here about how children are initiated into the calendar:

      Thank you for commenting Debra! I have a post coming up soon
      about what I did on 8 Chicchan 🙂

    • Thank you for reading, Susan – and I appreciate the feedback too. Wishing you a great rest of the day!
