Does this rabbit hole startle you? That’s because of your afraid of what you may find.
You may be the kind of person who feels great comfort in the familiar, yet you may be unsure of what you want out of life. The underground symbolizes the parts of ourselves that are longing to be unearthed. It’s time for you to get rooted to the idea of exploring what it is you truly long for and seeing what sprouts.
The treasure you seek is life meaning. You need to take a page from the title character of Alice in Wonderland and engage your curiosity. You may encounter things you find strange or bothersome once you allow yourself to tumble down the rabbit hole, but knowing how you feel about these things is allowing yourself to get one step closer to the thing that will truly make you happy.
If you need a little help getting started, try this exercise that’s just as zany as Wonderland: Take a piece of paper and write “What is my true purpose in life?” and then write down the first thing that pops into your mind, even if it doesn’t make sense. Do this again and again until you find one that feels right.
Entrance Number Seven
If these descending stairs make you shudder, it’s because you have a very potent fear.
If you fear this entrance, you have a hunger for life and indulge in its many fruits. But you may have a tendency to occasionally go overboard.
Going down, like these descending stairs, into an unknown place is very symbolic of being buried. Plus the steps are littered with fallen leaves that signify a new season, or phase. If this entrance scares you, you are, quite literally, afraid of death and what happens afterward.
The treasure lurking beyond this entrance is good health. You need to take care of yourself, inward and outward, in order to stay alive as long as possible. In order to do this, you don’t have to drastically change your lifestyle either, but incorporating a few more veggies into your meals, cutting out a bad habit, or going for a 10-minute walk every day can do wonders for your physical and mental health. It will also help you better appreciate life, which you so obviously cherish.
Entrance Number Eight
If you fear this heavy, blue door surrounded by stones, it’s for good reason.
The door is a very vibrant blue, a color that symbolizes the color of the sky and sea, which you leave behind once you enter this dark space. It is also a color that is often associated with stability, two personality traits you have in spades. Due to your consistencies, you are very productive and you get a lot accomplished, which gifts you with a great feeling of pride.
Yet, the moss on the stones signifies a long length of time in a cold place, and this door just happens to lead to an abandoned prison, somewhere you never, ever want to end up, especially since you consider yourself to be a good and hardworking person who rarely takes short cuts.
Yet, the strict values that you upkeep in order can sometimes be difficult to attain.
Wouldn’t it be nice to just take a break?
The treasure you seek inside this prison of regimen is a comfort.
Comfort makes us feel safe and secure. It also allows us to calm down and unwind, that way we don’t randomly snap, do something we regret, and end up somewhere where we don’t want to be.
So kick off your shoes and indulge in little r&r. It may seem like a waste of time at first, but after a while, like all the tasks you are dedicated to, it will pay off.
