Along the path a 'quickening' will come, where the consciousness of the Higher Self becomes evident in some kind of metaphoric manifestation. It's time to integrate the sense of that in the here and now, inside oneself. Simply focus on the feeling the metaphor activates, which will then grow and become a part of you. Bit by bit the false self unwinds, through the all the choices of your life, allowing the higher consciousness to flood in. But you have to keep trusting in it, keep working with it, keep focusing on it. If it's right and aligned, it will become you.
