WHY "A GOLDEN THREAD?"
"The golden thread is a symbol of the inspiration, intuition, and guiding light that graces us throughout our lives. It is that which we follow, knowing that it will, in some mysterious way, guide us on our true paths in life. It is most colorfully portrayed in Greek mythology as the magical thread that Ariadne gave to Theseus, assisting him in his heroic journey into and out of the Minotaur's labyrinth. As we travel through literal and figurative labyrinths in our lives, the golden thread may easily go unnoticed, yet when it is recognized and followed, we may find that this archetypal strand of gold connects us to our true selves, to our beloveds, and to that which we discover to be home."
I’ve named my website "a golden thread counseling" because I’ve had a long time calling to the imagery of a golden thread. Following an intuitive nudge to research any mythological or symbolic connection to the term "golden thread," led me to uncover the fact that it has long been a symbol referring to the vital thread that runs the fabric of our lives. The thread of inspiration that helps us find meaning and connection through the events of our lives.
