“An epiphany: when the veil is pulled back.” ~ John O’Donohue
I love epiphanies. Sensory bursts of revelation, inspiration, and realization. For instance, my space revolution sessions could be called space revelation sessions, to reveal the nature of their offerings.
Epiphanies are manifestations of one’s truest self, aha moments that fill you with wonder, realizations that sink their teeth deep into the substance of our lives. No, nothing really changes on the outside or even on the inside but there is a sudden flash, viewpoint, deeper perspective shining light on something. Moments bursting with truth in the showing forth of one’s nature. In moments of intimacy,
“the soul of the commonest object … seems to us radiant.” ~ James Joyce
These epiphanies are signs, messages from mystery, spiritual but not disengaged from life. Evanescent in nature, they have very practical applications as points of illumination along our path.
We spend so much time veiling ourselves. What can we learn from all those parts that we have kept hidden from view? A lot, if we dare to remember another kind of language. Our environments can assist us in offering these points of illumination, communication, and transmission. When we start caring for the spaces we neglect in the inner and outer landscapes of our lives, there is a surge of energy, and integration begins to take place. Flow unravels, awakens, wild and free. We are remembering how to inhabit and enliven the most sacred of spaces, our hearts.
