6 Mystic Symbols for the Home

6 Mystic Symbols for the Home

The symbols in your home have a life and spirit of their own, and they are constantly affecting the energy of your home, believes author Denise Linn, a leading expert on clearing the energy of a home.

She thinks we can literally change our life by harnessing the power of the symbols around us.

Linn writes: “A symbol can act in two ways. First, it can be used to focus and project your energy through it. Second, a symbol can function as a magnifier and transmitter of energy, even if you are not focusing attention on the symbol.”

Here are six mystic symbols for the home, and what they can do for you:

Circle: The circle is one of the most potent symbols. It represents eternity, completion, unity, the universe, wholeness, perfection and the Great Mystery.

Triangle: The triangle embodies the power of the pyramids. It relates to the combined power of body, mind and spirit, of mother, father and child, of past, present and future, of the Holy Trinity.

Square: The square symbolizes the four elements—air, water, fire and earth—and the four directions. It represents stability and strength, the four seasons. It represents the material world.

Cross: The symbol of the cross pre-dates Christianity and is perhaps the oldest talismanic symbol in the world. The cross symbolizes eternal life, resurrection and divine protection from evil. It also represents Jesus Christ.

Pentagram: The pentagram symbolizes the human body with each point representing one part of the body’s extremities—the head, hands and feet comprising each point of the star. It is used for protection.

Infinity: The symbol for infinity looks like the number eight laid on its side. This is a very powerful and cosmic symbol to use in your home.

Inspired by Sacred Space, by Denise Linn (Ballentine Wellspring, 1995).

This is another book I am going to have to buy. I LOVE Denise Linn. If this book is anything like her "Soul Coaching", it is certain to be wonderful. Thanks for presenting this tidbit. It whetted my appetite for more of her books. Thanks, Annie.
