Mist - As A Symbol

Symbolically: Mist is similar to the Veil. However, where the
Veil is a solid fabric that hides and protects what is behind it, Mist
is a slow drizzle that blurs, and distorts, our vision and Perception;
it prevents us from "seeing" clearly. Mist is that discomforting
confusion that we must wade through just prior to experiencing
Clarity. It is the feeling that what we are looking for is not yet
ready for us to understand.

Mist also Symbolizes a state of transition just prior to "seeing things
clearly" and resolving our current dilemma. It is like the Sphinx
that blocks the Path of our Journey until we can solve its one final

Metaphorically: Mist creates a blurred vision of something
real and True that is not meant to be completely understood by
our rational mind; or, at least not meant to be understood by us
at that moment.

However: Mist is also a Gift from the Spiritual Realm. Mist is the
Gentle Rain of Fertility: the Sacred Substance that impregnates our
mind and spirit, enabling our Thoughts and insights to grow and
blossom. It is the warm, enveloping caress of Divinity letting us
know that what we are looking for is almost within our sight. It is
the feeling that soon we will be leaving the Valley of Mist behind us
and ascending to the higher ground of Sunlight and Clarity.
