One day while out and about shopping, I happened across this gorgeous chest of drawers with the enchanting symbols carved into the front. When something speaks to me like this piece did, I know it has to come with me and be part of my tribe.
When you have a reaction to a piece of furniture or jewelry or art that invokes a response of this type, you are connecting with the energy resonating from the symbol. In our aura fields, we retain this information from previous lifetimes, and it is part of our hard wired conditioning that certain symbols evoke these energetic patterns within us. For example, in my article about the Labyrinth, I mention how the spiral pattern opens our aura and chakras and allows us to see both our past and our present more clearly. When we feel connected to the spiral pattern, it indicates that we are open to change and looking to move forward in a new direction. The spiral pattern is often associated with the season of Spring and as I recently taught in the April Wise Woman Wisdom course, when we align the spiral energy using sacred sound and gemstones that align with our aura and chakras, we can activate these pathways and clear them in order to receive the highest and best energy.
I’m always fascinated by what people see and feel when they see this piece. Almost everyone focuses first on the round symbol in the middle. What’s interesting is that people see different creatures and shapes within the symbol. Look for yourself, what do you see first? Some people see two swans with their graceful necks and feathers, while others see two serpents. Regardless of which image they see, they have a similar reaction, which is this symbol evokes a memory for them of being in an ancient temple, perhaps it was in Greece or Egypt, but always very old and a place where they first learned the wisdom teachings.
This is the same energy that the chest evoked for me and I knew it was meant to come to my office and to safely hold the items that are sent to students who study at my Academy of Mystical Arts & Spiritual Sciences. Looking further at the chest, the last thing most people notice are the wave symbols at the top of the chest and the bottom. These wave symbols are part of the Ancient Greek symbols called Meanders, Waves, and Keys, which have been used throughout Greek design.
The scallop symbol above the heads is another ancient symbol representing the Divine Feminine Wisdom and if you keep looking, you’ll find even more ancient sacred symbols. These symbols are part of Sacred Geometry and are found in nature as well as in art and architecture, similar to the Fibonacci Sequence design. These symbols radiate with wisdom, power and intention. When we connect with the energy radiating from sacred symbols, we can draw that energy into our aura to enhance our energy system and we can also charge items with this energy through the symbols. Each item placed in this chest that goes out to the students of the Academy of Mystical Arts is being charged with the ancient wisdom and universal energy being generated by these symbols.
This is just one example of how sacred symbols can be used in daily life. Interested in learning more? Contact Us to study at Kala’s Academy of Mystical Arts & Spiritual Sciences.
