More about Stacey Simmons
In 2005, Stacey Simmons was working in a large state university when Hurricane Katrina devastated her home town of New Orleans.
She watched as her city and everything she had invested in for her future drowned in the flood waters of Katrina. What followed was a decades-long recovery and mourning that revealed that Katrina had actually wiped the slate clean. She had built a life she could not have sustained, that would have slowly killed her had it not taken everything from her in the most painful way possible. Embarking on a 3-year Jungian analysis, and returning to Los Angeles Stacey became a psychotherapist.
In the course of her psychological research, Stacey discovered that we have had a secret archetype hiding in plain sight for generations of Western history. Years of psychotherapy practice have confirmed what Stacey herself found when she was trapped in her life in Louisiana. All women are forced to embrace one half of a Divided Woman archetype. We are all split in our youth between an innocent ingénue, the Maiden in Search of Relationship (MISOR) and an isolated magic-wielder, the Magical, Isolated, Powerful, & Endangered (MIPE).
In her practice Stacey sees mostly creative professionals and successful performers who come into treatment surprised and shocked that they are caught in the archetypal powers of this divide. The only way to fight archetypal power is to recognize and join the archetypal realms with consciousness.
Stacey writes on media psychology and the unconscious on her blog, deeparchetype.com. She has written a book on esoteric principles of miracles and manifestation, called The Keys of Sovereignty: Magic, Miracles, & Manifestation beyond the Law of Attraction, and she is currently completing the interviews on her next book, Crowned: from Divided Woman to United Queen, will be released in 2019.
When Stacey isn’t writing or seeing clients she is spending time with her husband and her horses. For more information about Stacey and her work you can learn more at: staceysimmons.net, deeparchetype.com, femmepyre.com, or her psychotherapy practice’s website: hope-therapy-center.com.
