Sacred Symbols

Sacred Symbols

A few years ago I asked what tool or symbol I needed to become more grounded. I went on a sacred journey and was mindful of being detached from what I might discover.The image I continued to get was the Eiffel Tower. I began to question myself. I absolutely love Paris, yet I began to question my process—really, the Eiffel Tower? At first I thought, Of course, it is because the Eiffel Tower was first laughed at and not wanted by a lot of the Parisian people. I related to that well. Being original often leads to a lot of laughter, nonacceptance, or bullying from others. I knew that path all too well.

I then drew a picture of the Eiffel Tower, and the following Sunday afternoon I saw an article in Parade magazine that stated, “Psychics travel from all over the world to be at the Eiffel Tower this weekend”—the same weekend I was gifted the symbol of the Eiffel Tower—because they believe that the signal at the Eiffel Tower is stronger than most places in the world.

And in that moment I got it: the Eiffel Tower has four legs that keep it centered and grounded. For me these four legs represented the emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical expressions of myself. When I am balanced in these four areas, my signal and intuitive powers are immense.Thus, the Eiffel Tower became a strong and sacred totem for me, and many images of it grace my home to remind me of the necessity and the benefits of being grounded and centered.

These symbols come to us when we ask for them, and they are uniquely designed to serve us by making a deep connection with us.

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
