Author Kim Hudson has identified a pattern of living in the stories of cultures across time and called it the Virgin's Promise. By honoring and being who we are we may live a fulfilling life. Based on her archetypal pattern, I have traced the steps of her story structure and provided a blueprint for it below. In the fashion of an oracle deck, a tool for divination, you may highlight and compare your life to one of the steps on the path by clicking on the link called Step into Life. You may likewise click on a picture below to read more about a step. You are encouraged to consider how your life may be showing up based on what step is highlighted or which step you are reading about.
Your life may follow the pattern and come to its fruition many times, while the steps you follow may not always be in the order shown. The pattern has been likened to a spiral which continues and ever renews itself.
As a believer in the power of story, and of archetypes, which are patterns of wisdom and instruction found in the unconscious part of our psyche, I believe the Virgin's Promise holds a promise for us all.
