When you see The Spiral Tower, it means sudden change is coming and there is no way to avoid it. It’s the moment when all pretence is stripped away. Something shocks the system and suddenly nothing is the same. The tough outer shell is ripped away and what is left is shocked to the core.
The Spiral Tower challenges the masks you hide behind. It shows you the naked truth about yourself, and that truth is always more glorious than you expect. You have a choice whether to react by emotionally shutting down or by seeing it from a higher perspective.
What masks are you wearing?
The Spiral Tower can bring great healing. It lifts you out of the stagnation of your life and liberates you from old patterns that have become your prison. If you are in control of your mind and can let yourself ride the change without fighting it, the Tower is a gift of refreshing water after a long journey. The real challenge of The Spiral Tower is to be prepared to let go of what has kept you safe. If you hold on to those things, you allow your prison to stand.
When all pretence falls away, who are you?
The Spiral Tower is what happens to you when you’ve clung on to things, people, attitudes or beliefs way past their sell by date. It is a time to release and let go of what you have been clinging onto for so long. It really is not healthy for you.
What imprisons you?

Message from the book:
Reversal of energies; withdrawal of old customs, phases and concepts; shocking change; liberation from outworn concepts; humility; the realisation of limitations; natural forces at work; a curative illness e.g. one that expels poisons from the body; loss of cosy security; transfiguration; self-awareness. ~ Caitlin and John Matthews
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
