The Journey of Choices

Jacob’s Ladder Mandala

“Happy choices, content decisions. When you invoke, invite, manifest from there you are rewarded with actuality. Sad choices, discordant choices, reap only unhappy outcomes. Manifesting requires purpose, focus, intention. Where there is none, nothing arrives. Are your choices happy? Are you content?

The ladder suggest not. The ladder suggest a struggle. A climb you are facing. If you see yourself in the city below. Hungary to climb to the one above. How can you be content. Success is the ladder to nowhere. 

What if you were in the city above. Where would you go then? Where is next? What can be higher? Here is the reign of the ego, the constant climber, always going nowhere. Why not stay on the ladder, neither highest nor lowest? What then? Are you enough? 

Arrival at the higher city doesn’t mean you are enough. Only that you have climbed further. Or rushed to the top and are now breathless and uncertain. Life learning is never a race, nor a climb to ascent. 

See the ladder instead horizontally, like train tracks. Marking your journey from one city or another. Or indeed, one lesson to another. How much easier the journey would seem. How much less demanding. This is life in flow. 

However, you make choices – to stay in one place or lesson, or to journey on. Your soul knows which you need, your ego does not. It will often mislead you. The Angels represent the Spirits who assist you in knowing which you need. Progress or stillness. 

Stillness is vital to life, equal to progression. When struggling to prefer try still ness. When the climb is too hard, lay the ladder down. When the journey seems to lonely remember we are with you.

Finally, the circle. The sign that all us balanced. That everything starts and ends. Completion. You will complete what you can, learn what you can. Grow as much as you can. Your soul will rejoice in it all. It will complete the lesson, close the circle, by returning home. The final journey. “

 

This piece of channelled writing was inspired by the mandala called Jacob’s Ladder. The picture was taken from the book “Mandala Sourcebook” by David Fontana & Lisa Tenzin-Dolma.

It was part of an exercise I gave my spirit writing students, where they randomly choice a mandala and then asked Spirit to write something inspired by the image or elements within. The above piece with written through me, but sadly the Spirit did not sign the piece.
