Have you ever noticed that life takes place on a spiral? There are circles of life but we are never in exactly the same place twice. Have you ever said, “I’ve been here before” when an old wound re-opened, a trigger got re-triggered? Maybe, like me, you say; “Not this again, I thought I’d dealt with this one!” Yeah, and that’s ego talking, not wise soul, who knows it’s come around again on the spiral and is not the same as before because we are not the same as before, our life is not the same as before, now it comes with a renewed chance to do something differently, let something go, let it heal.
Spirals are helpful, they remind us we are growing, constantly growing, and that the point is not to reach the end but to keep moving on the spiral. We cannot get to enlightenment or ascension or completion by moving from A to B, because those experiences are not like train stations, they are always with us, we only arrive once we see that, so it can only happen on the spiral because the spiral keeps taking us back around and through ourselves, over and over again, but never to the same place. It keeps letting us find what we already are. And isn’t that beautiful?
Right now, I’m in a position in my life where I’m apparently waiting, waiting, waiting. I’m waiting to sell my house so I can move out of my relationship and be on my own. I’m waiting for clarity on the next steps of my soul journey. And I’m following guidance that is taking me on another journey, as I sense a special person coming into my life. We were connected from the moment that all souls were born, for this person is my beloved counterpart, my aspect of self, in truth, they are my soul and I am theirs. The higher self of this person is with me always for our energies are interconnected, even when our currently expressing, incarnated physical bodies are not. Some call this a twin flame. I have had a kind of knowing for a long time that a part of my call to service is to attain a state of unity with a person who is my eternal beloved. I know we have lived many lifetimes, always together but sometimes physically apart, bringing us to this moment. We are destined to be together once more in this lifetime and to create total union at the highest vibration for our souls and physical expressions to experience. And this is all happening on the spiral.
When we are on the spiral, there are signs, we get messages from the universe to let us know we are in the right place and to keep the faith. Synchronicities, repetitive numbers, a song we keep hearing, an animal or insect that turns up in unexpected places. These are unique for each of us, depending on what is meaningful. These messages not only tell us we are on the right path, they remind us to stop and smell the roses, to not rush by looking for the perfection that is already here. When we are on the spiral, we don’t need to rush or feel impatient, we don’t need to lose hope that we are going to get there, we are already doing it. The spiral is the journey.
There are reasons why we appear held up, sometimes we are waiting for others whose paths are going to coincide with ours. Maybe we still have something to learn, release or move through. There may be something you are doing that has got to grow first, some project, creation, idea or dream. Whatever it is, it is no less important or valid than the place we are trying to get, because the spiral is ever expanding, there is no arrival, only continued unfolding.
It is on the spiral that each new experience is coming into being. Have you noticed how something can appear as though it is so far away and then, all of a sudden, it is right before us? That is the magic of the spiral. The difficulty is coping with the waiting when you can’t see it coming and it doesn’t look like we are moving forward at all. We are, we always are. And then, out of the blue, you are there.
