Thank you.. adding it to my Rebel and Visionary Archetype category
Your truth is what you know it to be. Do not let anyone manipulate you into believing what they say is the truth. You have your own mind and your own heart. You have your own point of view and way of seeing the world.
Your way of viewing the world may be different that other people. It may even be very unusual. You may feel like you are the only person in a situation that perceives the truth the way you do.

Visionary . Dreamer . Prophet . Seer

The Visionary brings into view what could be if certain choices are made, or what is inevitable given choices that have already been made.
Both the Visionary and the Prophet engage their abilities in behalf of humanity rather than for personal use, but while many Prophets are rejected by the group they were sent to enlighten, Visionaries tend to be celebrated for their capacity to read what is just over the horizon.
The Shadow Visionary
The shadow Prophet or Visionary manifests as a willingness to sell one’s visionary abilities to the high bidder, or to alter their vision to make it more acceptable to society.
In extreme cases, tainted visions may lead entire societies into murderous or destructive rampages; then the Destroyer archetype may supersede the Visionary, as in the case of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao.
Look for a long term pattern to see beyond obvious or momentary actions to perceive a larger pattern.
Watching movies related to your core archetype especially when going through the process of healing your shadow aspect is a powerful tool to help you understand yourself (your motivations, your passions, your fears – why you behave the way you do).
