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. “We cannot separate what is happening within our bodies from the objects around us” – One of the greatest illusions we entertain as a society is the idea of the bubble effect; that we can exist individually and not affect others or objects around us, that they do not affect us and that things outside of us don’t reflect back how we are choosing to live. Could this understanding of responsibility and reflection actually be the key to a very different way of living for humanity, with a much greater level of respect for our environment, the people in it and how it communicates to us?

  2. ‘The beholding love of symbolism’ and that is exactly it, no imposition but an offering from reflection for us to understand and learn from.. forever we are held in love.

  3. Reflecting I do feel very held and supported by the signs and symbols that offer themselves in every moment, they offer a depth, a knowing of energy and a true support in life that would be so lacking in its richness and they are a true education, offering us something to learn that offers light and colour to life.

  4. This is very beautiful; ‘The language of symbolism is also one of God’s ways of showing us that we are deeply held in love’, At work I often find tiny white feathers in my jumpers, this feels like a very gorgeous reminder of God and of my delicateness and lightness, it makes me smile when I see these and makes me feel very held and loved.

  5. I am starting to understand and feel this more and more ‘that we are all deeply held in love’ and the beauty is, I am starting to allow this into my body more, letting go of control and surrendering to love. This love is continually pouring through us every moment of every day. All we need to do is allow it through.

  6. Nothing happens by accident or coincidence. There is always a message for us that will either confirm we are on track with where we should be in our evolution, or that we have something to reflect on and learn from so that we can take the next step on our path back to our soul. When there is a willingenss to do this, everyone benefits.

  7. Absolutely, we are part of the universe and we are held in all its magnificence, whether we acknowledge it and live that way or not.

  8. ‘We cannot separate what is happening within our bodies from the objects around us.’ Once we realise this we can appreciate how we have the most amazing education and resource right in front of us, all the time.

  9. The language of symbolism and the fact that the universe is in constant communication with us is very beautiful and forever confirming that we are all held in a love that connects us with the All.

  10. Beholding has such a strength of true nurturing and honouring of ones very being… add love – Beholding Love which is what we are held in every moment of every day… then imagine if we were taught beholding love from a young age – how divine would that be to grow up with this knowing and understanding!

  11. ‘When we say yes to true purpose our Soul gets to work’ so much is done for us paving the way with symbols to guide and confirm the way, that the part left for us to play, is just to let go and follow the purpose we feel.

  12. Beautiful Marika! I do look out for those signs of symbolism on occasion, but this is a great reminder for me to be even more aware of what is occurring in life and its connection to what is going on in my life. The mirroring that is there for me (us) all to see every day.

  13. The language of symbolism keeps us connected to the divine light that we are from in many times a playful way that we can relate to in our everyday life. For instance, having a low tire pressure light come on in my car when I was feeling low on energy that week and a bit ‘flat’ due to not resting enough. Or seeing two squirrels chasing each other up and down and around and around a tree that showed me how playful I can be in my true nature when I was acting way too serious all the time. The symbols are everywhere when we are open to seeing and reading them.

  14. ‘I am never alone as the universe, God, whatever you want to call it, is collaborating with me every step of the way’ I can feel this too and I am getting a sense of how much we are truly held and loved, and that there are no mistakes, just lessons and possibly loving signs to change direction…

  15. “…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,…” Yes this is unfathomable to our thinking minds, but when we connect and feel energy and open to the bigger picture it makes complete sense.

  16. When we are open to seeing and reading the reflections and symbolism that are all around us we learn a lot and we are given an opportunity to evolve.

  17. We always know there is a symbol reflecting something back to us for us to observe as either a confirmation of what has just come together or a showing what choice is to be made. As you say Marika, not ours to try and work out how it happens but to feel the rightness of it and accept the insights, wisdom and joy it brings.

  18. The nature of symbolism does indeed mean that we are never alone and that the support available is constantly being communicated to us.
