The Beholding Love of Symbolism

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.

  1. Recently in the last few days I have had a lot of symbolism presented to me whilst I was working on something, something that required a decision fairly quickly. What I found was I really had to read every one that came to me, some I didn’t get. But what I realised was I had to discern too in how they were supporting me, confirming something or showing where I needed more awareness and understanding of myself or whether they were simply not in alignment to what was taking place.

  2. The symbolism of everything around us is quite beautiful to observe and understand as it reflects back to us just what we need to hear and feel in any given moment. We are truly blessed with signposts pointing us back home.

  3. As I read this sharing I can feel the immense joy just being ourselves, letting people in and feeling secure in ourselves, it is gold.

  4. So often we are helped to see clearer with symbolism. I recently had a dream where a black lab ran over to me and grabbed my finger in his mouth; he wasn’t aggressive, it was purely to bring my attention to something. A few days later I was attending a course run by Universal Medicine and the dream popped back into my head, and I understood the meaning of the dream – to pay attention to detail, and as it happens at that moment, we were talking about paying attention to detail.

  5. This is a huge topic here you are presenting, the fact that there is no coincidence and that we are constantly being communicated to on many levels.

    1. Yes, there is communication all around us. From the obvious reflections from flowers, birds and the sky to perhaps even the angles in which we place our dishes on the drying rack after we have given them a good wash… I wonder what areas of life are communicating to me all the time and I’m not even aware of it…

  6. Marika I agree with you when you say
    “We are connected to something magnificent and grand that connects us all together, no matter where in the world we live.”
    I feel this too and I love getting messages from God who lets me know by the presents he leaves me that he is there always there and I have to say he has a wicked sense of humour. Some of the messages he shares with me has me laughing out loud.

  7. If we ever want confirmation that we are part of the all, symbolism in life is definitely a big yes! All we need to do is to pay attention and be in the moment to listen to its constant communication.

    1. Absolutely Jennym… when we stop and open our ears, to listen and allow our body to become more alert and aware of nature going on around us, you can’t help but feel that you are part of the whole grand Universe… Its all there with you in any moment

  8. Symbolism is everywhere in every moment of our day. The only thing is we have to become aware of this and allow ourselves to live in this life of magic. Because if we do we have to agree on the fact that we do not live on our own but live together with 7 billion people, in relationship with nature, the universe and the stars. We are not on our own, we are part of a stupendous whole and the magic of God, symbolism is one of its expressions.

  9. I am currently upgrading a beautiful home that I have bought a couple months ago. I had to get a new Vanity in my bathroom to replace the current one and this has uncovered a pocket of energy buried in the house (and thence in my own system) that can now be released and re-imprinted. The same quality of energy is also trapped in a small storage space off the garage. Knowing something on the symbolism of the home and its room, it is good to be reminded of how I have held back on my power (and still do by interrupting the ‘power supply’ from the universe through a certain reactivity). Such symbolism is so helpful in making one completely honest about how one uses energy and power.

  10. I love the feeling of the word ‘beholding’. I get the sense of being an innocent child being held with unconditional love when I let myself feel the love that surrounds us all. I can let go of any tension in my body and surrender into its universal arms.

  11. You may call it an upgrade when our body is healing itself but actually it is not because the quality was already there but held concealed and inactive. We better can name it a resurrection as to me that is closer to the truth of the powerful beings that we are.
