“All you have to do is close your eyes— Igor Stravinsky
and wait for the symbols.”
“The symbols of the self arise— CG Jung
in the depths of the body,
and they express its materiality
every bit as much
as the perceiving consciousness.
The symbol is thus a living body.”
“Symbols are powerful because they are— Saint Augustine
the visible signs of invisible realities.”
Today’s MotD invites us to appreciate the universal language of symbols especially as it relates to our subconscious mind and intuition. The idea that a picture is worth a thousand words supports the use of symbols. From one symbol we can gain a thousand words of insights.
Through our dreams, our subconscious talks to us through symbols. Instead of seeing the dream in the literal sense, see everything as symbols. Then take the time to discover the deeper meaning behind these symbols and what they mean individually to us.
If we dream about the color red, within the context of the dream what does the red color mean? Its meaning can change from one dream to the next. For instance, in one dream it could mean ”stop” or ”danger” or in another it could mean ”passion” or ”fire energy”. The more we work with the symbolism in our dreams, the more fluent we become in the language of our subconscious.
In the chakra (energy centers) system, purple or white often represent the crown chakra, the very tops of our heads. When open, it’s through this chakra that we can receive higher vibrational guidance and expansion, and usually as symbols. In the readings I do for people, almost all of them start with a symbol of some kind, which then opens up to a story as a means of imparting insight and guidance.
“Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries. By symbols [people] have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language.”— Manly Hall
