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 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.

  2. 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.

  3. When we are in the flow of our body’s rhythm we naturally feel our interconnectedness and the magic of God all around us, there is much to learn and evolve from when we are open to receiving and accepting these messages.

  4.

  5. 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.

  6. “The interconnectedness of life is something to behold and something I deeply treasure about life.” Indeed Marika, I too know and deeply apprecaite this interconnectedness, and have sensed it all my life. Nothing exists in isolation – we only have to look at natures intricate and beautiful ecosystems to understand that this is true, and our bodies and the relationships we have with each other are no different.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. When we start to be aware of symbolism and that nothing is a coincidence and everything means something, especially if what we see is out of context with where it should be….i.e a feather in a shoe, then we begin to see life in a different light, and start to see that there is so much more on offer than the 2D version we have accepted. Life is multidimensional and we can choose to ignore it but the messages of symbolism will always be there.

  11. 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.

  12. 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’.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. The language of symbolism is very beholding and deeply felt when we deepen our awareness and we are willing to read and understand what we are being offered to learn and evolve from. I have come to appreciate the playfulness with some of the symbols used that mean something to us and also how some symbols are used to pull us up when needed to bring us back to ourselves.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
