Spiritual symbols and meanings are of utmost importance to a spiritual being. They can represent shifts in spiritual energies and have long been used in ancient texts to describe the diverse spiritual facets of a human being.
We have lost touch with their meanings in modern times. They can have a marked effect on our moods. Just visualising them can make us feel darkness and love.
Here are the most universal spiritual symbols and meanings.
Hamsa symbolises the five digits of the human hand. It is a universal sign used to represent safety. Its combination with Evil eye fights off demonic or harmful presence. If you carry this symbol, you will remain protected from evil intentions and sinister eyes.
The Tree of Life
The tree of life has found its way in different religions of the world. It has various meanings in different faiths. For instance, in Christianity it symbolises the tree Adam and eve plucked the forbidden fruit from.
The Flower of Life
Flower of life is the symbol of creation. Its unique edges and angles contain all the elements of creation. It has seven overlapping symbols, and each symbol has its own significance. These symbols existed since the beginning of times, and all of the creation is thought to have arisen from them.
The Yin Yang
The ying-yang is a famous symbol which represents the intermixing of masculine and female energies in defined proportions. It reminds us that the coexistence of light and darkness is necessary for all life forms.
The Lotus Flower
The lotus flower has a sacred place in Buddhism. It represents spiritual enlightenment. The lotus flower has emerged from a dark plain and experienced and learned from its unfavourable conditions to find true spiritual enlightenment. It also symbolises detachment, as the water slips from the petals relatively easily.
The Anhk symbol has Egyptian origins. Its appearance is in the form of a loopy cross. Many experts argue about its meaning, and everyone has their own opinions, but the most widely used definition of this symbol is eternity and regeneration.
It represents life forms that have been blessed with eternal life even after their deaths, creations that can arise anew after intense phases of darkness. The people who are linked with this sign are spiritually evolved beings with heightened intellects.
A 5 sided pentagram encompassed by a circle is the morphology of the pentacle symbol. It’s widely used in the Wiccan religion, and has similar meanings as the hamsa. This symbol provides safety against evil presence.
