Do you perceive your own journey through life on your own soul path as a linear path, or a path along a straight line? Do you believe you move forward from point A to point B, to point C, etc. through time from birth to death experiencing the highs and lows of your soul growth lessons along the way?
Do you know your journey through life on your own soul path is actually on an upward spiral shaped path? It is similar to a path followed by walking up on a spiral staircase.
A “spiral” is defined as “a continuous and gradually widening upward curve that relates to advancement to higher levels through a series of cyclical movements.”
The spiral is one those universal symbols found in virtually all cultures and religions.
Spirals are also a common shape and common growth pattern found in nature. There are spiral shaped galaxies in the universe and spiral shaped weather patterns on earth. The DNA double helix, flowers, plants, animal shells and animal horns, all include natural expanding spiral shaped growth patterns.
As you face challenges on your own soul path and learn your lessons, you grow and expand your own consciousness. As you do so, you “evolve” and move upwards to new expanded levels of consciousness.
With respect to your soul growth, your “evolution” is how you change, develop and expand into a better, more complex person, and into more advanced states of consciousness.
So your soul growth is actually cyclical. As you follow your spiral soul path upwards, you often re-visit a same or similar situation from a higher vantage point from which you can observe them with a greater clarity. This allows you to make free will decisions to avoid old patterns and situations that no longer serve you.
For example, you may be making the same choices with the respect to picking a partner for a relationship, with your beliefs about money, about feeling like you’re a victim in your life situations, about feeling you are in a state of lack, etc.
As you enter each new cycle on your spiral soul path, you are presented with people, situations and events that match a current vibrational offering you are sending out to the Universe.
If you desire to engage in your old behavior patterns and make the same choices you have made in the past, when you are presented these people, situations and events, you will experience the same results. The Universe will give another opportunity on your next new cycle on your spiral soul path to make different choices or change your behavior patterns until you complete your life lessons.
Or when you are presented such people, situations and events in your life, you instead can make new and different choices and use new behavior patterns to complete your life lessons. As a result your will enter a new higher level on your spiral soul path and undergo an evolution to a new and expanded level of consciousness.
What are the advantages of viewing your own soul path and your journey through life as being on spiral path so you learn your life lessons and complete “evolutions” instead of “revolutions?”
- Awareness – Viewing your soul path as a spiral path gives you a greater sense of awareness of yourself, who you are and what you have come here to accomplish. Such awareness provides you with an element of stillness, beauty and calm in your own life.
- Connection – Viewing your soul path as a spiral path gives you a greater sense of connection to people and your environment as you observe all the spirals that occur naturally around you.
- Progress – Viewing your soul path as a spiral path allows you to observe your own progress and achievements from progressively higher levels as you face, overcome and grow from the challenges that arise in your life.
- Expansion – Viewing your soul path as a spiral path allows you to further expand your consciousness in energetic waves along an upward spiral that allow you to reach higher and higher levels of stillness, peace, calm and soul growth.
Completing evolutions instead of revolutions on your own spiral shaped soul path allows you to create a positive impact in your own life and expand your own consciousness.
