In a world of energy, anything is possible, and one of the magical aspects of life that I just adore and inspires me no end is the language of symbolism – the messages that are reflected to bring more understanding to life and to show me that we are first and foremost divine and heavenly, and not just this human flesh living a human existence. We are connected to something magnificent and grand that connects us all together, no matter where in the world we live.
My days and weeks are filled with many reflections of symbolism in life and I know this to be true for all, however not all are open to seeing and feeling this fact. The language of symbolism is also one of God’s ways of showing us that we are deeply held in love: the whole universe constellating to continuously bring us back to love when we have strayed from it. My mind cannot even fathom how such a thing occurs, let alone on a global scale for all, but I cannot deny this most magnificent language of energy and symbolism that when truly read is so confirming of all that is occurring around me and within me.
The language of symbolism asks me to be more aware and as a result of choosing this I am given more access to a universal intelligence that is very wise and is an invitation to evolve. I love the fact that the universe is communicating and supporting me every step of the way, and it is this beholding phenomenon that makes life rich, joy-full and so much fun. I am never alone as the universe, God, whatever you want to call it, is collaborating with me every step of the way. And this communication is not limited to people, as nature and objects are very much a part of the dialogue of symbolism.
I wrote about one of my symbolism experiences in a blog called ‘My Fridge – The Love Gauge.’ And one of my most recent reflections of symbolism continues along the theme of kitchen appliances, only this time it was my oven rangehood – you know that thing that sits above the stovetop that sucks up and recycles cooking fumes and keeps the airways clear. So what does an oven rangehood have to do with love and symbolism you may ask…?
It all started after an Esoteric Healing session with a Universal Medicine practitioner. It was not the first time my body had gone through a deep transformation after a session, however the symbolism for this one was quite beautiful to observe and understand in the weeks to follow.
Within this session I had made quite a big commitment to write a book – a book that is very much needed to be written that I had started writing two years earlier, but previously got distracted from completing. It was clear that I could no longer delay writing this and with the loving support of my practitioner I said yes to completing this book, knowing that to do so there would have to be some changes to the way I was living in order to bring the clarity of writing that was needed for such a book. When we say yes to true purpose our Soul gets to work, and that it did!
Two days after my session I woke from a very restful sleep, eager to restart writing the book. I noticed that my body felt quite different – I felt so light in my upper body and shoulders. It felt so different to what I was used to, but I was very much enjoying this lightness of being. As the days unfolded I realised what had actually occurred: the armour of protection that had been in my upper body for so many years was no longer there – it had gone, vanished – and I was left to feel how it was to be in the world more open and vulnerable with people. This felt like a miracle for me and as each day went by I was enjoying the new found freedom in my body and my interactions with people. Something magical was unfolding and I was very much liking the inner shifts.
What was to follow was a massive shift in my body that lasted two weeks. Two weeks of blowing my nose – I couldn’t believe how much snot could exit out of my little body, and it wasn’t the flu! It was like my body (heart and lungs) was getting a grease and oil change… each time I blew out some snot I felt lighter and more open to the world. I felt like crap, but at the same time I felt so good at the core! I could feel that my body was clearing out the old muck to make way for the ‘new.’ I was also faced with feeling the exhaustion that came with not fully letting people in for so many years – such is the case when one lives with the protection of armour around the heart. And so this also needed to be addressed and healed.
It was one gigantic healing in my body that needed the upgrade if I were to have any chance to write the book. A body that was protected, damp and tired was not going to be able to be the vehicle that was needed to write a book that can truly help humanity.
So where does the oven rangehood come into this story you may be asking?
When I looked back in my diary at the timing that this all happened, the adventures of my rangehood aligned perfectly alongside the process my body was going through. When my body started its two-week process, my rangehood just stopped working, and when my body stopped clearing itself of mucus and anything else that didn’t belong, I received a brand new rangehood. There are no coincidences here, just the magic of life’s symbolism confirming what had just occurred. I should also add that I do a lot of travel for work a few days of each week and the oven rangehood in the apartment that I stayed in during this two-week period was also not working. Of course… the symbolism was everywhere. How much clearer could it be!
The new rangehood that was installed was symbolic of the new body that I now had. The exhaust fan in my rangehood was no longer burdened or clogged by the excess oil and dampness – and my body was no longer burdened by the dampness from all of those years of protection and not letting people in. I could now feel how much lighter, clearer and open my lungs and heart were, appreciating the magnitude of what had just occurred.
We cannot separate what is happening within our bodies from the objects around us. Because “everything is energy, and therefore, everything is because of energy” (Serge Benhayon, 1999), we are intricately interconnected with the all. And what my oven rangehood so beautifully reflected to me was the confirmation of what had been occurring in my body. The symbolism was so perfect and exactly what I needed to see to confirm what my body had discarded. What a gift life is when we allow ourselves to feel what is happening all around and within. The interconnectedness of life is something to behold and something I deeply treasure about life.
And now I get to explore the deeper relationships and connections that I am so enjoying with people. Feeling how open and light my body feels now, without carrying the plate of armour that was my protection, it is hard to fathom how it was there for so long. We often don’t realise how great we can feel until we arrive in that new place and reflect back.

How amazing is it that the universe communicates with us constantly with an invitation to grow and evolve.
Meeting Serge Benhayon and attending the courses of Universal Medicine has enabled me to reconnect back to the sense of heaven and feel that we are never alone, we just lost the transmission as we grew up because everything in this life is set up for us to be in the disconnection to God.
We are supposed to evolve, ‘The language of symbolism asks me to be more aware and as a result of choosing this I am given more access to a universal intelligence that is very wise and is an invitation to evolve.’
Heaven is in constant communication with us every day and for most of us we have stopped listening or caring, so these love letters never get opened to reveal the grandness they convey, yet they never stop being sent. That is the magnitude of the love of God. We are never ever forgotten no matter how much we think we are, or the denial of God we are in.
It is great to be reminded that we are constantly looked after, ‘ the messages that are reflected to bring more understanding to life and to show me that we are first and foremost divine and heavenly, and not just this human flesh living a human existence.’
A great reminder that we are ‘intricately interconnected with the all’ ✨
What life reflects when we are connected to our Essences, Inner-most-hearts / Souls is an amazing symbol of what True Livingness is all about.
I can’t help but smile reading this straight after receiving a message from my radiator. Of course the radiator doesn’t talk, but when I feel into what the energy behind the situation is communicating that is where the message is found.
It makes sense that in order to make space for the new we have to clear and let go of all that is now love.
I watched today two teenage boys observing a squirrel eating an apple on the school campus. These boys are normally quite shut down but the expressions on their faces were priceless as they were soaking up the playfulness of the squirrel. Whatever was being reflected certainly supported them to connect to something more deeply.
‘the oven rangehood in the apartment that I stayed in during this two-week period was also not working. Of course… the symbolism was everywhere. How much clearer could it be!’ We are supported so beautifully to come to awareness and understanding, especially when we are open to it.
I needed to read this ‘The language of symbolism is also one of God’s ways of showing us that we are deeply held in love’ and to remember. Your blog also showed me how I do not read the symbolism we are given. Only today I found a cricket in my bedroom ceiling. I removed it, I took a photo of it …. but I did not read it! 😶 What I feel now after reading your blog and in where it was positioned in my room was that it was asking me to be aware of my relationships and what I am bringing to them. A message to wake up 💫
A grasshopper not a cricket!
We are so looked after, and supported, ‘I love the fact that the universe is communicating and supporting me every step of the way, and it is this beholding phenomenon that makes life rich, joy-full and so much fun.’
Truly lovely to read this again, thank you. I’ve always felt there was more to life than just what’s occurs on the surface or in the physical world, to me everything has to have meaning even if I’m not aware of what that is. It made perfect sense to me about your rangehood and the changes you were experiencing, with the home representing the body and the upgrade you had around letting people in.
There is more to life than being human, ‘We are connected to something magnificent and grand that connects us all together, no matter where in the world we live.’
Agreed and we only have to be sensitive to the impact of our thoughts, words and movements to witness the impact we have and the grandness of the responsibility of our interconnectedness. It would be easy to see this as a negative or a burden, and it would feel like this if we were on the back foot, but stepping into the potential and being on the front foot opens up the opportunity to be the change we want to see in the world.
Whenever we complete a survey for how we are feeling it is based on our perception of what we should feel. For example, I may complete a survey at one point in time that says I feel great and then find when I do the same survey a year later only to find that I feel really different and consider that to be great too but looking back I can see that what I felt the first time was not great at all! It is based on the prism of our normal, therefore, it is so important to deepen and expand our relationship with our body, continually asking to hear the subtleties of what it is sharing with us so we can continue the dialogue of what feeling great actually feels like to us. As you have shared, sometimes feeling great can mean we are physically quite sick.
Lucy I get what you are sharing here. As we deepen our awareness of ourselves and our surroundings, what we felt on one level has to change as more ideals and beliefs that we have been saturated with come up to be looked at and discarded as not being the truth of who we are. It is in the discarding that we deepen and so more ‘crap’ as it were, can be presented and released. It’s a continuous movement.
Discarding what is not true is part of our healing process, ‘I was also faced with feeling the exhaustion that came with not fully letting people in for so many years – such is the case when one lives with the protection of armour around the heart. And so this also needed to be addressed and healed.’
Being open to understanding the symbolism that happens in our day to day life can provide much support for us.
So supportive, and fun, ‘The language of symbolism is also one of God’s ways of showing us that we are deeply held in love: the whole universe constellating to continuously bring us back to love when we have strayed from it.’
It is always a choice to connect to the grandness and magnificence of who we are that connects us all together and this can never be taken away from us no matter what comes our way to try and take us out.
We are one, we are all connected, ‘What a gift life is when we allow ourselves to feel what is happening all around and within. The interconnectedness of life is something to behold and something I deeply treasure about life.’
We are so loved, and it is in our clocking and being aware and having a relationship that the magic seems to magnify and become more constant.
We are so supported, so loved, it is magnificent, ‘The language of symbolism asks me to be more aware and as a result of choosing this I am given more access to a universal intelligence that is very wise and is an invitation to evolve. I love the fact that the universe is communicating and supporting me every step of the way, and it is this beholding phenomenon that makes life rich, joy-full and so much fun.’
I just love ‘the beholding love of symbolism ‘, It never fails to support us in our evolution and path of return. The tiniest thing can hold a revelation. It is always there to guide us, remind us of the unseen world and the energies at play and keep us smiling.
Ditto. Each communication is profoundly supportive – whether it is a pull up or a confirmation, every single one is a powerful reminder of just how supported we are and what our purpose here on Earth is.
How appropriate to read this, the magic and communication of symbolism, it is with us everywhere and every day.
I’m realising my apartment is in need of completion, in order for me to move out to another more supportive foundational home. There is so much magic in life that we do not appreciate what’s in front of us.
Our bodies are indicating all the time. I love when snot comes out of my nose, and I know it is ancient stuff that needs to come out. I now don’t look at symptoms or illnesses as something is wrong with my health, I see this as a clearing and support my body with both medical and esoteric healing.
That is so true. We see symptoms as a bad thing but perhaps that is because we are so unused to listening that when our body speaks so loudly that when we do listen we feel the shock and the deep knowing that it was communicating to us all along.
After a new awareness or energetic shift we can get sick. I am realising this illness is not a failure on my part as I previously believed, but an opportunity for my body to clear out even more of what doesn’t belong.
We are supported beyond what any of our minds can fathom. And really it is now our job to fathom it, but it is our job to be open to it.
Imagine if we actually let ourselves be open to the love we are surrounded by?
This is so true Sarah ‘we are supported beyond what any of our minds can fathom’ and with the supported it is alway we are loved beyond what we can fathom.
“The Beholding Love of Symbolism” – part of my everyday life because it helps me make sense of life.
I can not but smile at the truth of what you share: “My mind cannot even fathom how such a thing occurs, let alone on a global scale for all, but I cannot deny this most magnificent language of energy and symbolism that when truly read is so confirming of all that is occurring around me and within me.” So much of what we witness around us can simply not be comprehended by our mind, yet the deep response and at times reaction we have to it – the joy, recognition, pain or at times fury at what we witness – shows that we have a bodily knowing and deep relationship with it none the less.

To know and understand we are being so deeply supported by these messages that are constantly around us is so very humbling. How much we choose to see, read and learn from them, is of course a personal choice.
Opening line gets me “In a world of energy, anything is possible, …”. I like this .. I was just pondering how much I know because of the basis of energy and all that is to be felt, and how much I am aware of.. This brings me to a new point – “I want to know more”, and the only way that this is delivered to your door is you have to walk towards it, and give yourself permission to know that more.
Yes Rik, to know more can only come from our willingness and choice to deepen within the connection and love for ourselves and then the awareness to know what we already know will be there.
Being open to the symbolism in life, means we are simply accessing the sign-posting and guidance that is always on offer.
Being aware and at least attempting to read the symbolism presented by God is the first step to understand what is being communicated continuously on a daily basis. Nothing is presented without good reason.
I love the fact that we are continually being communicated with in a way that is so supportive, ‘what my oven rangehood so beautifully reflected to me was the confirmation of what had been occurring in my body. The symbolism was so perfect and exactly what I needed to see to confirm what my body had discarded.’
The more our eyes are open, quite literally, the more we are open to see life’s way of communicating to us. And thus, we increase our awareness.
‘we are intricately interconnected with the all’ – do we choose to read this and inform ourselves of what is really going on?
I also am very touched by the language of symbolism. I shake my head at the magnificent order and placement of people, symbols, events in my path that are just what I need to see. There is also such a richness to what can be captured in a symbol, as opposed to words which can be 2 dimensional.
I love the beholding and true support of the symbolism I experience in my life, it is always such a huge surprise and a gift from Heaven to receive that it makes me melt. It can be at times I expect it the least but the power in this language is endless with a true beauty that indeed makes our life ‘rich, joy-full and so much fun’.
Imagine reading a book and taking in every other word. How would you expect to comprehend and understand what is said? Yet isn’t that what we effectively are doing when we ignore symbolism in life?
“The language of symbolism asks me to be more aware..” – yes and the more aware we are the more we evolve.
Its like the symbolism is a map that can help to chart our every step. When we ignore it, no wonder that we feel lost and alone.
How can we live in the world and not be open to the magic of symbolism? It brings us so much clarity and understanding and invites us to consider the divine plan that is at play always.
When connected to God and the bigger picture and what is being offered, there is no self – individual beings and our little world. What I am becoming aware of very gently is that in every moment there is always a purpose and that purpose when connected to the all serves everyone through my commitment and dedication to living and saying ‘yes’ to what is next.
There is no individual in truth, we are all connected, ‘we are intricately interconnected with the all.’
I loved re-reading this blog and agree symbolism is all around us and it is beyond us to fathom how this is all possible for all of us all of the time. I went to the service station and after putting fuel in the tank I had a lot of trouble putting my fuel cap back on and actually had to modify it in order for it to go back on. After leaving the service station I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a fuel cap spinning across the road and naturally thought mine must have fallen off but when I stopped mine was still on.Not quite sure what this means yet but it is way too much for a coincidence, as I have come to know there is no such thing.
Kev I have situations like that too where something is so obviously going on but I can’t always understand exactly what – it’s a very obvious communication through symbolism, like your fuel cap story.
Knowing that we are getting messages coninually to support us with the choices we make really helps us to understand why things happen in our lives and it becomes much easier to make sense of why things happen and when they do. No coincidences as everything happens for a reason.
God is indeed always with us, and in us. The way He works makes me very humble: I do see I have my part to play, giving the full of me, but also see that so much gets done without me having to do anything but just allowing it to happen.
The more open we are the more we get to see such symbols, i.e. are aware and develop an understanding of them. At times it is amusing and or surprising what and how it is presented, and the mind can go into trying to figure out how this is even possible, as if a logical explanation would explain it all, but simply has difficulties to accept the message.
Openness is space. It all works by allowing space. Without space, miracles are just not possible.
I love the magic of symbolism, it shows that there is so much more to life, it can be so supportive.
We can learn an awful lot from the details of life.
Symbolism is beautiful to read and as we accept and appreciate it, there is more available to support our choices in life.
Your joy of life and the magic of it just leaps of the screen and into my heart.
It is true that when we say Yes to the soul it does not delay in getting to work because the soul knows it is all about us returning back to where we come from.
It is so hard for the mind to grasp that the whole of the universe constellates to show us exactly what we need at any given time and that is why we need to feel in our bodies the truth of this.
I agree kevmchardy – and what can be most challenging to accept is actually how easy it is.
Kevmchardy so beautifully expressed that the whole universe constellates to show us exactly what we need. That the universe wants to communicate with us and yet we can ignore all the signs. The greatest tragedy is that we are not taught about the universe and our connection with it.
“The language of symbolism is also one of God’s ways of showing us that we are deeply held in love…” What a magnificent form of communication
The science of symbolism is the language of the Soul. It does not ever need to be decoded, just simply reconnected to.
I love how you use the word decoded. We have made life so much about ‘decoding’, thinking we have to discover and find out how things are, all the while the answers are within us, with the connection to our soul.
You have a beautiful way of saying look there is more, just open all your senses and you will see there is so much more to life than you allow yourself to see.
I really love how this blog is written, it is very beautiful in how and what is shared.
The world will be a very different place when we realise how precious our bodies are and that there is magic, alchemy and unmeasurable amounts of love that are waiting to get poured into us to express.
We are not just connected to something magnificent. We are magnificent ourselves. We are part of something magnificent. That is where we belong alongside everything that is magnificent.
“We are magnificent ourselves.” This is something for us all to take in and then live it, step by step, all our grandness all of the time.
