A Closer Look at Symbolic Meaning of Choice
When we are faced with decisions – small or large – it’s a good practice to get acquainted with the symbolic meaning of choice.
Normally, I talk about symbolism in Nature and how we can weave those impulses into our own experience to gain profound and personal meanings in our lives.
But our choices are symbolic too.
Our choices represent our level of consciousness in any given moment. This makes choices symbolic of our vision and the extent to which we can see beyond the events at hand.
What do your choices say about you?
How are they symbolic of something larger lurking like a treasure-laden leprechaun in your psyche?
What if your choices were not just about executing a decision – but an actual reflection of the authentic you?
How would that make you feel about choices that are contrary to your own fine-design?
If you could give a personality trait to the choices you are making – what would they look like? Does that persona honor who you are?
An even more intriguing question is: “How do you feel about your choices, and how do you feel about the consequences of choice?”
Many of us tend to make the same choices over and over again. I think that’s symbolic. We’ve got to ask ourselves these questions, and we have to pause before making another non-fulfilling decision.
“The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over, and then expecting different results.”~ Einstein
When making a decision, consider the symbolic meaning of choice. Consider the consequences and outcomes of the choices you make and then try to tie that in with how you’ve lived your life – how your life is going. Is there a connection?
I mean, if you keep on choosing the same distasteful personalities when you’re dating…consider that as big-time symbolic. If you’re going out with a jerk, what’s that symbolic of? You know you deserve better. What is it about some consistently made poor choices that needs to be investigated so you can live your best life?
I hope this article on symbolic meaning of choice might help you to stop and think before acting. Very often it’s getting quiet and being aware of the deeper meaning behind our actions that can mean the difference between sorrow and elation in our lives.
As always, thank you for reading.
May all your decisions lead you to your best outcomes,
