Dorje (Vajra, Diamond Scepter)Dorje in Tibetan means ‘indestructible.’ The Dorje is the Tibetan Buddhist equivalent of the double terminated Hindu ritual tool known as the Vajre, or thunderbolt. The Vajra represents masculine force, sudden inspiration, the ‘cutting’ of ignorance and illusion. In Buddhist rituals it is always paired with the singing bell, or Ghanta, its feminine counterpart. The spoked ends represent the closing of the spokes of the wheel of Samsara; the attainment of enlightenment.

Symbol Code: SM000916     Symbol Name: Yab-Yum (Father-Mother)   (Category: Meditation )

Yab-Yum (Father-Mother)(Meditation on Contemplation): The traditional Tibetan Buddhist Yab-yum (literally, “father-mother”) image of two deities in an overtly sexual posture is meant to be shocking, but not in the way one might suppose. A yab-yum icon is a meditational tool, one of many seemingly contradictory images of sex or death used to achieve the insight that leads to spiritual liberation. There are several types of yab-yum, each depicting a tantric deity (compassion) in sexual union with his consort. (wisdom), each with its own layers of additional symbolism. Like the Hindu Shatkona or the Taoist yin-yang, the image represents dual forces in union, which united, create a transcendent unity. Despite appearances, the yab-yum is not related in any way to sexual practices.


Symbol Code: SM000917     Symbol Name: Symbolic Sunflower   (Category: Meditation )

Symbolic Sunflower(Meditation on Elements): The sunflower moves itself in the most direct position in front of the sun so it can get the maximum sun rays. This is symbolic of spiritual faith, and worship because we follow our belief system as the sunflower moves to face the life-giving rays of the sun.
The sunflower is the Greek symbol of Clytie (a water nymph) who turns into a sunflower after grieving over the loss of her love (Apollo). The mythological symbolism here is that Clytie (in the form of a sunflower) is always facing the sun, looking for Apollo's chariot to return and she might be joined again with her love. The sunflower is also a symbol of Daphne (another Greek nymph).


Symbol Code: SM000918     Symbol Name: Whale Totem   (Category: Meditation )

Whale Totem(Meditation on Ether): The oceans, and water in general holds age-old symbolism of emotional depth (I've written about potential water symbolism here, if you're interested). As humans, we all experience an array of emotions. Some are on the surface; we can experience these emotions easily because they float on top of our life-experience as driftwood on the surface of the water. We can observe these top-layer emotions clearly, they are familiar and we deal with them daily. Other emotions, however, run very deep within us. Some emotions we burry beneath the fathoms of our consciousness; these emotions are the leviathans of our being - the lumbering beasts we dare not let surface.
This kind of emotional swallowing, digesting and processing is key to whale totem meaning. Luckily, the whale can facilitate emotional clarity, and help us navigate through the often ambiguous and confusing seas of emotion. Whales themselves are incredibly nurturing; we see this in how they raise their young as well as their close-knit connection to others in their community herds or pods. Whales, and those with whale totems have a natural affinity for helping, especially promoting well-being within their community. People who are attracted to the whale often feel devoted to a greater cause, and although they may struggle with their own personal emotions, they tend to naturally conjure healing powers towards others in emotional trauma. Does this sound familiar to you? If you have these tendencies, I encourage you to swim deeply with the whale in your meditations and prayers. Navigating the emotional waters with the whale by your side will afford guidance and clarity.


Symbol Code: SM000919     Symbol Name: Pomegranate   (Category: Meditation )

Pomegranate(Meditation on Food): The pomegranate (Latin, pomum granatus, “seeded apple”) was first cultivated by the ancient Phoenicians, who used the jewel-like fruit as both food and medicine. The many seeds made the fruit an obvious emblem of fertility, and by association, love and marriage. The pomegranate is associated with a number of goddesses, including Astarte, Cybele, Hera, and especially Persephone, whose ingestion of just one of the fruit’s seeds (a probable allusion to pregnancy) made her an eternal prisoner of Hades.


Symbol Code: SM000920     Symbol Name: Alchemy symbol for the element of Fire   (Category: Meditation )

Alchemy symbol for the element of Fire(Meditation on Heat): Fire symbols and meanings allow you to hold the power and passion of the Gods, right in the palm of your metaphorical hand. Within the collective consciousness fire blazes through the waves of thought with assertion - awing our minds with concepts of inspiration and vivacious vitality. To wit, here are a few symbolic attributes pertaining to the element of fire.
In the practicing alchemists point of view, fire is a catalyst to both initiating and completing metaphysical demonstrations. This symbol signifies upward mobility, forward motion, rising flames and aspirations to solar embodiment (in both literal and philosophical senses). To move into the energy of fire is to be utterly consumed, transformed and lifted out of limitation (vis a vis: smoke rising - also bringing to mind the symbolic message of the phoenix in alchemical literature).


Symbol Code: SM000921     Symbol Name: Celtic Knot Meaning Mandala   (Category: Meditation )

Celtic Knot Meaning Mandala(Meditation on Hope): The Celtic knot mandala beckons us to fall into to it for a glimpse into the inner workings of our lives. As we delve in hypnotic flow with this mandala, we are able to see how our decisions have affected our lives, and those lives around us. Further, we are able to visualize how our lives are interconnected with those of our ancestors. Let your imagination run free each time you lay eyes on this beautifully embroidered design.


Symbol Code: SM000922     Symbol Name: Wings on Lions   (Category: Meditation )

Wings on Lions(Meditation on Life Breath): In alchemy, the lion is symbolic of gold - a spiritual quality that is lusciously luminescent and gloriously rich in value. Bling of the heart. Alchemical texts and artwork will depict a lion when a specific magical/spiritual goal is to be achieved.
Conversely, winged eagles in alchemical texts are symbolic of the beginning of a process. Alchemical eagles are symbolic of youth, initiation and the unbridled exuberance felt when launching in a new direction.
So, when we see winged lions (a mix of eagles and lions), it's a message of combination - a juxtaposition between beginnings and endings, fact and potential, the seeker and the accomplished.


Symbol Code: SM000923     Symbol Name: Spiral Celtic Symbol   (Category: Meditation )

Spiral Celtic Symbol(Meditation on Memory): The spiral is prevelant in a vast amount of Celtic ruins and remains. This symbol is often found in many other ancient cultures spanning the globe. This is a powerful sign as it represents spiritual awareness, and expansion of thought. Focus upon this spiral mandala augments the understanding that we are more than our bodies and more than the confines of this earth. Delving deeper into this symbol we find that we are ever growing and increasing, and as our awareness expands, so too does our energy. As such, we are reminded to pass our positive energy out to others and the world, ultimately making the universe a better place to live and grow.


Symbol Code: SM000924     Symbol Name: Blue Jays   (Category: Meditation )

Blue Jays(Meditation on Mind): When we dream of blue jays it may be a message that it's time to vocalize more clearly. Is it time to assert ourselves in a healthy way? A time to speak our mind? Blue Jays dive into our consciousness when we need to stand up for ourselves, or a cause. They also come when we need a nudge of confidence in our waking lives.


Symbol Code: SM000925     Symbol Name: Ken Rune, a Symbol of Fire and Strength   (Category: Meditation )

Ken Rune, a Symbol of Fire and Strength(Meditation on Satisfaction): The Nordic Futhark, a system of divination based on 24 alphabetical symbols derived from ancient Germans, Scandinavians and Anglo-Saxon tribes established a magnificent form of communication between that which is physical and non-physical. The ken rune, shown left, represents the flame or fire. It is a symbol of positive action, sexual prowess, passion, warmth and positive direction. As an oracle this symbol indicates a blossoming of understanding that will light the way for new adventure. It also indicates winning and success, and so it is also a symbol of victorious warriors.


Symbol Code: SM000926     Symbol Name: Celtic Animal Symbols: Horse   (Category: Meditation )

Celtic Animal Symbols: Horse(Meditation on Sleep): The horse has a long history with the Celtic people, and at times was a deity unto itself-perhaps even the first Celtic deity. Horses were associated by the Gauls with several gods and goddesses, and were emblems of the sun. The horse was a tremendously important animal to the Celtic tribes, and its domestication transformed the Celtic culture Horses were used for meat and milk and provided labor for farming and transportation, making for huge advances in hunting and war-making. The horse was so important to the Celts it was associated with the sun god, who often appeared as a horse with a human face.


Symbol Code: SM000927     Symbol Name: Pheasant   (Category: Meditation )

Pheasant(Meditation on Strength): The pheasant is a native bird of China where it is revered for its beauty, and thought of as a solar animal. Indeed, the Golden pheasant’s body is a shock of flaming red; its head a ruddy yellow. So intense are these solar colors that there is some debate as to whether or not the Golden pheasant (image shown right) may be linked to the legendary phoenix. Native American lore considered the pheasant a symbol of protection and concealment. Presumably because regardless of their airborne capabilities, they prefer most of their time hunkered down in tall grass, concealed from sight. Further, unlike most winged creatures, the pheasant nests on the ground rather than trees.


Symbol Code: SM000928     Symbol Name: Sun   (Category: Meditation )

Sun(Meditation on The Sun): The sun symbol is found in all cultures throughout history.
Considered by most peoples as a cosmic power, it's not surprising we see the sun emblazed upon countless artifacts and writings.
Ancient Chinese culture recognized the sun as the Great Male Principle – the ultimate Yang. These symbolically appreciative people also personified the sun as a cosmic eye viewing out upon its dominion during the day.


Symbol Code: SM000929     Symbol Name: Sparrow   (Category: Meditation )

Sparrow(Meditation on Thought): These little ones whisper messages of faith, humility and simplicity in both our dream and lucid states. More specifically, bird dream symbolism of sparrows may point us in a direction of frugality. Sparrows ask us, for the moment, to make due with what we have rather than overindulge and overspend needlessly. Dream sparrows encourage us to find pleasure the simple things of life. They know simple thoughts and needs lead to simple joys.


Symbol Code: SM000930     Symbol Name: Stones   (Category: Meditation )

Stones(Meditation on Truth and the Infinite): Fundamentally, the meaning of stones and rocks deal with solidity, stability and being grounded. They are representations of gravity, having been pulled from their source by their own weight over time, and then submerged into the Earth by the force of gravity as well. These are heavy concepts, and when we contemplate the hidden language of stones, we can utilize their symbolic heaviness for our personal development.
Rocks are everywhere, and such unassuming things - they're easy to take for granted. But in truth, stones are a very big deal. In fact, they were used for currency in many civilizations. Take the Yapanese, inhabitants of the small island Yap in the Pacific. They used Rai, which are stones used as currency. These money stones were carved in doughnut shapes and could weigh several tons.


Symbol Code: SM000931     Symbol Name: Triquetra Celtic Symbol Mandala   (Category: Meditation )

Triquetra Celtic Symbol Mandala(Meditation on Truth and the Infinite): The Latin meaning for triquetra is "three-cornered." It's also the symbol for the holy trinity. Being a holy sign, this Celtic symbol is perfect for mandala meditation. It stills the chattering as our focus is funneled to the center of the triquetra. Once centered, we are able to feel the connection with the spiritual trinity, and thus become one with the source of power.


Symbol Code: SM000932     Symbol Name: Mermaid   (Category: Meditation )

Mermaid(Meditation on Understanding): They are matrons of enchantment, entreating sailors with beguiling beauty, grace and mesmerizing melodies. Seductive and charming, all those in contact with mermaids are subject to their persuasion.
Naturally, mermaid meaning and symbolism also deals with love as they are frequently associated with love goddesses like Aphrodite/Venus. They are also affiliated with sea goddesses like Amphitrites, Tethys, Calypso and the Norse sea goddess, Rán. Mermaids are also aligned with Undines, those pervasive spirits of all waters in the world.


Symbol Code: SM000933     Symbol Name: Diving Deep into Water Meanings   (Category: Meditation )

Diving Deep into Water Meanings(Meditation on Water): The symbolism of water has a universal undertone of purity and fertility. Symbolically, it is often viewed as the source of life itself as we see evidence in countless creation myths in which life emerges from primordial waters.
Interestingly, we are all made of water, and so we can liken many of these myths and allegories to our own existence (the macrocosm mirroring the microcosm and vice versa). Further, we can incorporate symbolism of circulation, life, cohesion and birth by associating the creative waters of the earth with the fluids found in our own body (i.e., blood).


Symbol Code: SM000934     Symbol Name: Cardinals   (Category: Meditation )

Cardinals(Meditation on Will): Cardinals in dreams speak to us about compassion, hope and love. I've had many dreamers claim to have dreams of cardinals just prior to new romance coming into their lives. The bright shock of red we see in male cardinals could certainly awake intuitive messages of amorous potential; red is a symbolic signpost for passion.


Symbol Code: SM000935     Symbol Name: Chakra Symbol   (Category: Meditation )

Chakra Symbol(Speech Meditation): The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel. Chakra symbols represent the circular centers of energy, and they correspond to the nerve plexuses and organs in the physical nervous system. By focusing on these energy centers, and understanding the function of each, we are able to balance our energies, augment areas in our lives, and even facilitate healing.


Symbol Code: SM000936     Symbol Name: Sun Meditation   (Category: Meditation )

Sun Meditation(Sun Meditation): Collect yourself gently. Gather up all your wandering awareness and begin to funnel them into one stream of focus. Know now you are preparing yourself for a union with a magnificently powerful star.
Once you are in a position (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually) of full relaxation and focus, begin to contemplate the radiance of the sun.
Consider gentle golden rays softly penetrating any clouds of confusion you may have in your thoughts or emotions. Visualize the warmth of the sun enveloping you lovingly.


Symbol Code: SM000976     Symbol Name: Mudras   (Category: MEDITATION )

Mudras(Food Meditation): At left is a representation of a Mudra, or sign of power, used in the Buddhist and Hindu religions. Each hand position represents a different spiritual truth; they are used during meditation, on statuary, and in sacred dance, often in conjunction with asanas, or body-postures.
There are 108 standard mudras used in Tantric ritual. Some of the better known mudras include the abhaya or “no fear” gesture, the dhyana or “meditation” mudra, and the Vitarka mudra, which resembles the christogram.
Such gestures are not exclusive to eastern religions; hand gestures with spiritual meaning are found in many religions.


Symbol Code: SM000977     Symbol Name: Dhumavati Yantra   (Category: MEDITATION )

Dhumavati Yantra(Food Meditation): Beholder of Smoke, her persona is deceptive. To those who only see her outward appearance Dhumavati is fearsome and without beauty. To those who look deeper, and beyond the superficial, she bestows powerful blessings with her right hand and represents the divine mother. Dhumavati is the seventh of the Mahavidyas. Focus upon this yantra will aid in dispelling false perceptions, and seeing the beauty in ugly situations.


Symbol Code: SM000978     Symbol Name: Durga Yantra   (Category: MEDITATION )

Durga Yantra(Food Meditation): Durga was created as a warrior goddess to fight the demon Mahisashur who could not be defeated by god or man. Allegorically, she slays the damaging misconceptions we hold, offering us clarity of mind and spirit. The Durga Yantra assists in the focus upon the qualities of Durga, facilitating strength, feminine energy, creative consciousness.


Symbol Code: SM000979     Symbol Name: Ganesh Yantra   (Category: MEDITATION )

Ganesh Yantra(Food Meditation): The Ganesh Yantra is a good focal point for good luck and success in new ventures. Ganesha is viewed as the remover of obstacles. Meditate upon this yantra when you perceive roadblocks in your life - spiritual or physical. When you need direction or you need the rivers of abundance or creativity to flow, concentration upon the blockage-stopping energy of the Ganesh yantra will help get the flow going again.


Symbol Code: SM001085     Symbol Name: The Meaning of Stones   (Category: MEDITATION )

The Meaning of StonesThe idea of rocks being historical vessels makes sense to me, and the meaning of stones is synonymous with the passage of time. Consider, stones have been hanging around for eons. Some stones have been squatting in their moist muddy nests for thousands, even millions of years. If we apply the rule of energy (meaning: Energy never expires, but is always present), we can retrieve ancient recollections via stones.
Give it a try some time. Meditate with a stone (I'm serious!), with a clear intent to cast yourself back to the time of that stone's birth. Experience the time, place and people present while you yourself observe in stony silence. Witness yourself becoming more smooth and subdued over centuries of enduring Nature's polish. If your stone-meditations are anything like mine....you're going to have a spectacular journey!

Consider gentle golden rays softly penetrating any clouds of confusion you may have in your thoughts or emotions. Visualize the warmth of the sun enveloping you lovingly.
Begin to settle into the knowing that darkness can be swallowed by the light, and the shimmery light of the sun can be a catalyst for clarity.


Symbol Code: SM001111     Symbol Name: Earth as a Symbol of Stability A Grounding Meditation   (Category: MEDITATION )

Earth as a Symbol of Stability
A Grounding MeditationAcknowledge the rambunctious energy going on in your mental attic
Speak to this frenetic 'upstairs' energy in calming tones. No threats, just a gentle enticement for a temporary change of scenery (the mind rebels when it thinks we're taking away it's playtime).
Situate yourself in a relaxed space.
Breathe, normally, but see your inhalations circling through your entire body.
Ideally, after this meditation, your awareness should return to your body's solar-plexus; the center of your being. That's a great landing pad for our consciousness.


Symbol Code: SM001112     Symbol Name: Tibetan Mo Divinatory Syllables   (Category: MEDITATION )

Tibetan Mo Divinatory Syllables(MEDITATION ON SILENCE): A practice of Tibetan lamas is to recite six syllables in their meditations with the understanding that the focused energy of each syllable powerfully corresponds to a particular cosmic force. In our scenario, the symbols shown left are the syllables, "tsa ra," which means "the sword of flames." In divinatory language, this symbol indicates the power and influence inherent in the force of fire. The recipient of this oracle should understand the destructive powers of fire, and in this understanding wield cosmic fire as a tool for declaring love, taking right action, and moving through blockages.

Symbol Code: SM001140     Symbol Name: Saturn Symbol   (Category: MEDITATION )

You can incorporate the Saturn symbol into your devotions and meditations to bring about intense focus to facilitate in matters requiring long-term vigilance. Focus on the Saturn symbol also promotes fluid transitions even if it means moving through change with detached interest (rather than taking things personally and adding drama to the situation).


Symbol Code: SM001141     Symbol Name: Symbolic Meanings for the Deer   (Category: MEDITATION )

Symbolic Meanings for the Deer(FOOD MEDITATION): Just as the deer has an uncanny sense of where to find the green freshness earth provides, we can ask the deer within ourselves to seek out our inner treasures. In meditation or day dream, go on a spiritual hike with the deer. See yourself walking in the woods with the deer leading you into amazing depths within your soul. Each step you and the deer take will lead you deeper into your spiritual knowing, and to limitless treasure within.
The deer (particularly the doe, females) has the capacity for infinite generosity. Their heart rhythms pulse in soft waves of kindness. Match that graciousness by offering your trust to her. She will reward you by leading you to the most powerful spiritual medicine you can fathom.
