SYMBOLISM OF SHAPES

 

“The meaning of Symbol is defined as “a thing that represents or stands for something else,

especially a material object representing something abstract”. From the cave man to ancient

Egyptians to native Americans and Indian sages, symbols and geometrical shapes and patterns

have held sacred meaning. All forms of life, flowers, leaves, sea shells, or snowflakes have

sacred geometry and shapes in their design. I became aware of symbolism behind shapes

(Yantra as they call it in yoga) as a student of yoga. As a teacher of yoga, I applied their benefits

to bring balance and focus to the mind.” - Anita Mawji, Founder Sage & Stone

 

Triangle – The three sides of a Triangle, representing mind, body & spirit. An upward

facing triangle denotes energy, action and service. A downward facing triangle

encourages, grounding, centering and connection to the earth. Being balanced and

anchored is the inherent state of well-being.

 

Circle – The circle symbol meaning is universal, sacred and divine. It represents the

infinite nature of energy, and the inclusivity of the universe. Circles are a center point of

focus and embody a spiritual energy. They represent unity and wholeness.

 

Full Moon - A full moon embarks the start of a new beginning. Each new day can be a

new beginning, an opportunity to play, wonder, create, love, forget, forgive, live, laugh &

connect. The energetic buzz on a Full Moon keeps you charged but also balanced.

 

New Moon - When the moon swings between Earth and the Sun once a month at new

moon, the least bit of edge will still be illuminated but invisible to observers because of

the sun’s overwhelming brightness. The new Moon is a magical time of beginnings,

when you can recharge goals or set new ones.

 

Crescent Moon - The word crescent means to grow and increase. The Crescent Moon

symbolizes new beginnings and the making of dreams into reality. It is also connected

to rebirth and how our true essence really is immortal.

 

Spear - Spears represent strength and passion. They are most associated with

warriors, but spiritually, can be a spear of inspiration and a pillar of magic and inner

strength.

 

Feather - The meaning of feathers deals with ascension and spiritual evolution to a

higher plane. They represent prosperity, freedom and cheerfulness.

 

8 Point Star - This star is a symbol of regeneration. Its universal symbolism is one of

balance, harmony and cosmic order. The number 8 represents beginnings, resurrection,

salvation and super-abundance.
