Spiritual Meaning Of A Paperclip

Is the paperclip a sign of God? Does it have a deeper meaning than we think? No. It’s just a metal fastener with two loops. But you know what else has two loops? A double helix. It’s an important part in the DNA structure. And after reading this article, you might find bigger and more interesting connections to this seemingly little paper clip.

The voice continued, “First of all, the paper clip represents you, as a self-contained, spiritual being in the physical world, wherein you are surrounded by the millennia-old, human belief in the power of materiality—which lies beyond the outer perimeter of the paper clip.

A paperclip is probably the most quotidian and underrated office supply in existence. It is a small wire loop designed to keep things together — or “hold your papers”, as the old-timers would say. But it’s more than just something to hold your papers together effectively, which is why long-time users have been using this small piece of metal to signify more than two decades of business relationships.

Spiritual Meaning Of A Paperclip

A paperclip is a symbol of the power of organization. It can be used to hold together loose papers, bind them into a stack, or even create a makeshift bookmark. In this way, it can represent the ways in which we use our resources to create order and structure for ourselves and others.

The presence of a paperclip can also create an environment in which people feel safe and supported—a place where they know that when they need help with their work, they can find someone who will organize things for them so that they can focus on what’s most important: getting the job done!

So whether you’re using your paperclips to organize your own life or you’re helping other people get organized at work, know that each time you use one, you’re contributing to something bigger than yourself—you’re contributing to an environment that encourages productivity, efficiency, and collaboration.

The paperclip is a symbol of unity.

The paperclip is a simple, yet powerful tool that has the ability to bind together many different things. It can hold pages together, and it can hold people together. It’s a symbol of unity and peace in a world that seems to be fraught with division, prejudice, and hatred.

When we see a paperclip, we should think about how it brings us together in peace and harmony—how it binds us together as one people.

spiritual meaning of a paperclip

One day, while taking a walk, I saw a paper clip lying on the sidewalk, and I thought to myself, “I don’t need that.” As I walked past it, the voice of my heart said, “Go back and pick it up.” So I did, and walked on wondering what on Earth a paper clip lying of the sidewalk had to do with anything.

My heart said, “This paper clip represents the Path of the mystic, the one you begin to walk in this material world.”

“How?” I asked.

The voice continued, “First of all, the paper clip represents you, as a self-contained, spiritual being in the physical world, wherein you are surrounded by the millennia-old, human belief in the power of materiality—which lies beyond the outer perimeter of the paper clip. Look carefully at the picture of the clip. The world’s belief in materiality is depicted by the seemingly random, confused pattern of the concrete. Secreted within the clip’s outer perimeter is the mystical Path, the entrance to which is the narrow opening near the bottom of the left side.”

Indeed it is! The narrowness of the opening is exceedingly rigid and taut.

“That is precisely why so few even notice the entrance, in the first place, let alone choose to enter this spiritual Path of self-discipline, as it leads ever closer to consciousness that allows you to experience the infinite beauty and spiritual freedom of Creation. At this point of attainment, you begin to transcend the unconsciousness of the material mind.”

“But what,” I asked, “is the purpose of the open area at the top within the clip? What happens there?”

“When you reach that upper space where this new vista begins to open out,” came the answer, “you have reached a critical place of indecision and choice—a juncture that will determine the outcome of the meeting of the socially conditioned, material mind of the ego and the unconditioned, spiritual mind of the heart. In other words, it’s a time of struggle between needing to see in order to believe and believing without needing to see—the ‘dark night of the soul.’ It’s a spiritual ‘tar pit’ in which a person is challenged on all levels and can flounder blindly for years.”

“So, if one chooses to stay on the mystical Path after this heroic, internal brawl, why does the Path once again narrow into yet more constraint and patience?”

“Look at it this way. If the spiritual mind of the heart wins this extreme tussle, the person has had to die daily to himself or herself (meaning letting go of long-cherished worldly beliefs, possessions, and outer identities). Thus has the spiritual mind grown leaner through a singular focus and simplification, becoming receptive to the silent spaciousness of the Eternal. Then the purpose of the winnowing hardships of the journey becomes clear.”

“So, if one stays the course, what is to be found within the center of the clip?”

“Once inside,” comes the answer, “you are surrounded by the light of Grace, and your inner eyes are fully opened to the spiritual beauty and wonder of Planet Earth. You are truly in the world—but not of it.”

Shamanic Animal/Dream Interpretation

I will do a small shamanic animal/dream interpretation for you, that may have occurred in your waking life, dreams, visions or synchronicities.


Finding a paper clip is a sign that things are due to get better sooner than you are expecting them to. And that ease and organization are now arriving.  Most of all, stability is coming. To receive/find as a gift is a sign that you will find yourself blessed with many gifts in the forthcoming months and years of your life. To be associated with financial reward, accolades, and favor, above all odds.

If you desire wealth, prosperity, opulence, know that all is possible, and do not allow others to switch your perception of it, as each persons’ path aligns differently and according to their own desires. Let go of preconceived beliefs. As no one can tell you what an ideal life for yourself, would look like. You must, therefore, live your own life and fulfill your dreams through effort, determination and the work you do in the world.

The Paperclip is also an indication that you need to get going as soon as possible if you haven’t already on a project you may have delayed or procrastinated for quite some time. Use your own innate wisdom to do things the way you wish to do them. Not in a way that is predetermined by the beliefs of others. Only the person who believes is obligated to live in such a doubt, or fear or even belief.

2 Week Life Coaching

Coach with me for 2 weeks to transform habits, thoughts/beliefs, your life, and manifest miracles through magic. It includes 4 hours of live 1:1 sessions, 1 ritual, and unending support for 14 days to cheer you on.


Do not allow others to precondition or order your life in the way that it should go, only you are responsible for your life choices, so why give anyone the authority to direct the alignment or plan over your life, whether it appears positive or negative. Use your strengths and lose your weaknesses. If anyone is willing to tell you how to live your life, at least see to it that they are capable of doing it themselves, as a good leader is a follower of his/her own wisdom first and foremost. Don’t allow others to tell you it’s okay to be mediocre, while they live high. Take off the rose-colored glasses.  And see every individual for who they truly are. Not to be judgemental, but just so that you are aware of your surroundings.

Generational curses begin where someone believes they know what they are talking about over your life, prophesying negative outcomes and you allow it by staying longer in a conversation, allowing them to prey on your gullibility or naivety. You must encourage yourself. And speak over yourself and that of your future, don’t allow others that power. Unless you have volunteered their assistance through service or otherwise. Remember, even wolves appear as sheep at first glance. And not everyone you call a friend or leader will truly be for you. And even though you may feel that no matter who’s against you, Divine is for you, you still have to be on a level, where you are not allowing low spirited traffic in and out of your life.

Whatever positive or negative outcome you speak over yourself, it shall be so. So, what do you think will be if you allow others to do this for you? The most authentic way to live above and beyond is to do unto yourself first and foremost any positive thing you seek or feel entitled to. If you deserve wealth and all good things, create a platform to generate such goodness, and all of the best will be added to you.
