Hurricane spiritual meaning
Uncover hidden superstitions meanings
Uprooted trees? Drowned terrain and swirling winds are some of traits of the intensively powerful hurricanes.
They are completely unstoppable in life. Imagine being in the storm, the fierce winds, the hail and rain and the fear. It is as if a bomb of destruction that will hit you destroying the “perfect” world. Sometimes we grow best when we have to face fear itself. Every hurricane leaves a path of destruction, many displaced from their homes. Leaving the land in desperate chaos. As the situation unfolds the more traumatic for survivors of the hurricane. But what does this mean from a spiritual context? why did it happen?
The more we share experiences with others the more we develop in life. The hurricane is shaped as a spiral with the “eye of the storm” in the middle. In the middle of the storm is known as the “eye of the storm” this is a forty mile wide hole. It is normally an area of peace and calm while the walls of the spiral hurricane destroy and things can be somewhat wild! The pressure is normally low when a hurricane originates, consisting of high velocity winds. The hurricane symbol represents the “hidden shadow” it is a warning that one needs to be strong.
Spiritually the symbol represents fear, change, new start and wisdom - as well as spiritual individualism. In order to understand the meaning we need to look at the shape in order to define the spiritual context. It has been suggested that hurricanes represent the mother goddess in life that has been associated with rebirth due to the “spiral” shape. The eye of the storm has been interpreted as a symbolic, and the key to rebirth as well as spiritual enlightenment. In the wake of a hurricane we tend to see mass destruction. Loss of material possessions, the loss of time and more disturbingly the loss of life. Because of the connection between the eye of the storm and the supposed “mother goddess” we can associate hurricanes with feminine symbolism. Hurricanes can also indicate hidden intuition and dark concepts.
The circle shapes found in a hurricane, indicates that everything has a cycle and time itself is indefinite. Hurricanes force us to bring back basics of life. From psychological and spiritual context we are sometimes so drawn in by our material possessions, riches, trying to achieve in life that we sometimes miss out on understanding our spiritual beliefs in life itself. This circle is quite prominent in every hurricane, naturally shaped such as squares and diamonds are not as widely used in nature.
The spiral shape in hurricanes represent not only growth but also psychological forces of nature. After all, the galaxy is shaped as a spiral which is connected to universe end the cycle of life. Everyone of us progresses from being an adult to a child, hurricanes are connected to our development in life as we grow and embrace the change and energy force within. The eye of the storm is also known as the heart of the soul, this is spiritually connected to growing and wisdom. Smaller hurricanes don’t have the growth to produce an eye of the storm. From a psychic perspective this means that inside the storm you need to focus on growth.
The spiral shape from a spiritual context is connected to the water symbol. If we look at throwing a stone into water the water ripples, in a circular motion. Water itself, in the form of rain is apparent along with the hurricane and again water is a feminine symbolism. If we compare fire to water, fire is masculine. There are five elements need to be taken into account when defining what hurricane symbol. The elements are: earth, air, water and fire. As well as this there is a fifth element known as quintessence. This is connected to our own spirit, again this fifth element is a spiral / full-circle!
The eye of the storm is the centre which includes low pressure, the edge of the storm winds can reach a speed of up to 80mph and if it is a category five, the hurricane can reach upwards of 90 mph. However, the eye of the storm there is peace and this “hole” has a diameter of about 6 to 35 km. The spirit is supposed to reside in the eye of the storm from a spiritual perspective. The symbol is connected to making a cocoon in one's life, to protect themselves from anything that may harm them. Seeing the eye of the storm in a vision, or a dream indicates that things may appear to be packaged well on the inside but on the outside there will be destruction. There is a battle going on at the moment and where one's priorities lie. What are your passions? Spiritually the hurricane symbol represents fear, as well as spiritual development.Sometimes we grow best when we have to face our fears. The more we share experiences with others the more we develop in life.
