Why I chose a double spiral pathway for goal setting

When I look at a double spiral template I see the galaxy!  How perfect to include this image into goal setting!

Receiving an invitation to be apart of a 2nd annual New Years Eve event with our local Church of Church with a theme of goal setting, I considered offering a different type of pathway than in our previous year.  When originally approaching the Church of Truth in 2014 to express an interest in collaborating in a joint event, my purpose was to create a walk with a  labyrinth into the new year.  

This past year I have had a strong focus upon nature and when approached for another event,  I had a longing to include some natural elements into the portion of the event I would be creating.  The labyrinth became a spiral and the material used would be evergreen branches.  For me, my tree is of South African nature, therefore,  in the West of Canada my adopted tree is Cedar.  This is what we used to create the spiral with following a template laid out earlier with strings of traditional strings of outdoor lights.  

A single spiral for me represents the need to seek answers.  When walking into the center and back out along the same pathway, one would be trying to make a decision, find solutions or guidance.  The double spiral for me  represents the pathway of longing for change, where one can confidently walk into the center mindfully releasing and then follow a new path to walk out into the world.  A double spiral seems to be a perfect way to psychically ground your intentions and goals!   


The spiral image can be found in all cultures, ranging from primitive art to 21st century advertising. The spiral is often associated with the cycle of rebirth, time and seasons and can form a spiritual journey.
