The Spiritual Symbolism Behind Jeeps
by Amanda linette meder
Have you ever wondered if the type of car you have, holds any spiritual significance? If there was a deeper reason as to why you chose it, or rather, a reason as to why it chose you?
We all have reasons as to why we make vehicle choices in our life.
When it comes to cars, the choice we make on ours is often a mix of logical reasoning (cost, what you need it to do, if there is one available or not), and emotional bias (color, aesthetic features, brand loyalty).
As a professional psychic medium, and also, as a human being who also has normal life happenings, recently, I found myself needing to manifest a new vehicle.
My previous vehicle had already been totaled year prior (which I've already blogged about in the article, Can A Spirit Save Your Life) and after nearly a year of going car-free, I now need something.
My blog and business are rapidly growing and I have my heart set on expanding into more of the field of investigative spiritual research.
Spiritualism was in a hey day in the United States in the mid 1800’s and today, many spirit heavy locations, once beautiful and bright, no longer have the luxury of well-paved roads.
Getting the Jeep
When thinking of what to get immediately...the thought of a Jeep came to mind.
I’d looked at Jeeps in college and early on in my career.
Back then, I always decided on something more sensible.
But now, as a more spiritually aligned person, someone who believes in the power of manifestation . . . it's time to finally get what I want.
Furthermore, I need an off-road vehicle to visit many of the historical, spiritual locations in the US I’ve been dreaming to blog about, and after all, a Jeep, is the SUV that started the the whole off-road craze in the first place.
As a business woman in need of a new piece of office equipment and as a spiritual person who pays attention to signs, the synchronicities have begun lining up.
Around the same time I was manifesting my Jeep, these synchronicities started to occur:
I learned that the birthplace of the Jeep was located in my home state, only a few months after decided I was going to shop local from now on, and that there was to be a festival in a few days.
I found out that my mom’s first car was a Jeep, the first car she purchased with my dad, and this car, would now be the first I was to officially purchase with my significant other.
And finally, I discovered the Jeep was named after a mystical spiritual creature, named Eugene. I identify with being a mystical creature, as well.
Whenever you have so many arrows pointing to the right decision, it becomes clear what's going to happen.
And with all of my signs pointing towards Jeep, the decision is clear.
I am going to have a Jeep.
But the choice hasn't been made lightly.
I've consulted the Guides, I've done the research and most importantly, I've found out some pretty cool things - the Jeep is a symbolic vehicle.
The Spiritual Symbolism of a Jeep
Cars, objects, animals and places, they can all hold symbolic meaning, as the image the object holds and what we think of that image, can be a symbol, for other, larger meanings in life and experience.
When it comes to the Jeep . . .
The Jeep Slogan is Go Anywhere, Do Anything
For nearly 100 years, Jeep has drawn adventure seekers, idealists, vagabonds and visionaries to it’s front door. The Jeep Brand has become synonymous being able to help you go anyplace - spiritually, emotionally or physically. Jeep advertises to the wanderlust personality who sees potential and adventure in everything, rather than the problem.
Jeeps symbolize and mirror the seeker, the adventurist, and the idealist personality traits.
The Jeep Name is Related to a Mystical Creature
According to Jeep enthusiast websites (here, here, here, and here) and Jeep lore, the Jeep name is connected to a popular spiritual creature introduced in the Popeye comic strip, named Eugene the Jeep.
Eugene the Jeep was introduced as a new character in 1936, right around the time the Willy’s Prototype, the car we now call a Jeep, was being tested by the Army.
Eugene the Jeep was known to travel through the dimensions, tell the future, walk through walls and basically, do anything (see the example comic strips here).
How it came to be: Popeye was a popular comic strip for the Army recruits at the time, and the Prototype they were testing, and because of how versatile the car was, it was quickly equated with the Eugene the Jeep’s magical abilities for doing anything you want to, and thus the Jeep name, was born.
Because of this, Jeeps appeal to those who are down to earth, but spirituality inclined with a positive, can-do attitude.
The Jeep Spirit is Pioneering
The Jeep is one of the vehicles known for starting SUV craze and because of this, it’s known for being a luminary and a pioneer in its field.
Jeeps are meant for people with proactive, leadership personalities, willing to go past the limits of what is already known and bridge out into the beyond.
Jeeps are for those with a taste for adventure, psychics, explorers, outdoorsy folks who are willing to step beyond what is normal, both in their family life and in their fields.
The Jeep is one of the most versatile cars out there and for backroad travels, it's one of the most reliable.
And soon, we will be trotting the globe together.
