The Arc of Autumn
I love autumn and in particular love the month of October. This time of year ushers in change. The seasonal wind whispers rather than howls, and lends itself to a very peaceful silence: the kind of silence that allows for meditation and silent contemplation, a spiritual quest of sorts. With a new season and new month, come new beginnings.
The past few days have been ones of great manifestation for me, and so I listened extra carefully today during meditation. The word that kept coming to me was: arc. Of course knowing several of the colloquial meanings of the word, I went straight to seeking out the spiritual meaning of this word to help interpret the message being given to me. Rather than looking for a definition of the word itself, I found wonderful thoughts about defining the arc symbol.
Symbols are powerful because they are archetypical. Even cultures that do not share a language do share an intrinsic understanding of symbols. The arc is considered one of the basic building blocks of symbols and is typically found in planetary symbols, representing ascension and striving. The arch which we know mainly as a traditional element of architecture lends itself to commemorative monuments that reflect triumph and achievement.
I feel like the arc also represents coming full circle, or that part of the circle that might be the final connecting element to achieving our goals. I love that this message came to me at this time … autumn, when change is palpable. For me I feel as though the arc was present to help me visualize the connecting forces at play in my life. It comes at a time when I am striving to achieve that which is most important, ascending to a higher level of consciousness. I am choosing to “triumph” over perceived obstacles, growth rather than shrink away, if that resonates for any of you!
How do you feel the arc has helped to connect divine forces in your life right now? Use creative visualization to actually see and feel these energetic connections flowing. Autumn is a wonderful time for manifestation! Focus only on that which can serve your highest good. ~Blessings
