Monthly Symbol, March 2015: Unity Wings (Winged Solar Disk) (post updated)

imageEgyptian Symbols, Winged Sun at http://egyptian-gods.org/egyptian-symbols-winged-sun/: “The winged sun is one of the oldest Egyptian icons and symbols that appeared as early as the Old Kingdom. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power not only in Egypt but also in the whole Near East including the countries of Mesopotamia, Persia and Anatolia. In Egypt, it is a symbol of the soul and its eternity. It is often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom, it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period.”

Example of modern symbolic use: The Unity wings symbol / the winged globe explained 1956 by Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity at http://www.unitync.net/Wings.html:

“It is an ancient Egyptian symbol, but it is found in various forms in the religions of other races. It represents the relation existing between Spirit, soul, and body. Soul gives wings to body. Spirit is the enveloping principle, like the atmosphere in which both soul and body exist, and from which they draw their original inspiration. ”

“As man develops spiritual consciousness, he attains the realization of the soul as the wings of the body. Back of the Soul is Spirit, which quickens and energizes the soul; that is, gives the soul wings.”

The Magic of Merging with the Soul

In silence
my soul collects
the parts of
my personality
into a wholeness,
where they
automatically
exist as
a harmonious
team
in balance,
in wisdom,
in unison and joy.
No push,
no pull,
no inner strife,
just peace
and ease.

I am sensing
the connectedness
of everything
and everyone.
The past
and the
future
readjust.
The paradigm
shifts.

What´s
beyond
the stars
is in
here.

Monthly Symbol, February 2015: Gordian Knot Solved

Gordian Knot

“In Greek and Roman mythology, the Gordian knot was an extremely complicated knot tied by Gordius, the king of Phrygia in Asia Minor*. Located in the city of Gordium, the knot came to symbolize a difficult problem that was almost impossible to solve.

According to legend, Gordius was a peasant who married the fertility goddess Cybele. When Gordius became king of Phrygia, he dedicated his chariot to Zeus* and fastened it to a pole with the Gordian knot. Although the knot was supposedly impossible to unravel, an oracle predicted that it would be untied by the future king of Asia.

Many individuals came to Gordium to try to undo the knot, but they all failed. Then, according to tradition, the Greek conqueror Alexander the Great visited the city in 333 B . C . After searching unsuccessfully for the hidden ends of the Gordian knot, Alexander became impatient. In an unexpected move, he took out his sword and cut through the knot. Alexander then went on to conquer Asia, thus fulfilling the oracle’s prophecy. Alexander’s solution to the problem led to the saying, “cutting the Gordian knot,” which means solving a complicated problem through bold action.” From: Gordian Knot / mythencyclopedia.com  http://www.mythencyclopedia.com/Fi-Go/Gordian-Knot.html

A few of my personal, subjective adaptations of Gordian knot solved:

♦ instant, positive manifestation (spiritual, mental, emotional and/or physical healing, growth or solution, a shift in a relationship issue, a sudden shift in consciousness, or a material manifestation, and so on).  An issue solved immediately by using  “the sword” of higher truth. Affirmation: “Any situation can change for the better at any now moment.”
♦ energy work (working with/transmitting higher energies) especially Ray 1 (Will to Initiate by Sanaya Roman)
♦ soul, spirit in action (vs ego)
♦ missing piece falling into its place (saw an image of that recently during my energy meditation)

The Torus Tube contains many mathematical formulas and equations. Science began using this model as a geometric\mathematical model of the universe.” Read more here http://wholejoy.com/jewelry/gordian-knot.html (link corrected)

The Gordian knot can be used as a symbol to solve problems in life through unity and oneness with the world around us.

Monthly Symbol: Flower of Life and Merkaba for January 2015

The Flower of Life is a powerful symbol of creating new. It symbolizes new life even referring to the DNA-strand.

“The Flower of Life is the name that gives to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.

Drunvalo Melchizedek has called these figures symbols of sacred geometry, asserting that they represent ancient spiritual beliefs, and that they depict fundamental aspects of space and time. Melchizedek claims that Metatron’s Cube may be derived from the Flower of Life pattern, and that the Platonic solids within it were “thought to act as a template from which all life springs”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_of_Life

Merkaba: “History has talked about the Mer-Ka-Ba mostly as the vehicle that allows a person to ascend or descend into the higher or lower worlds. But actually the Mer-Ka-Ba is much more than just a vehicle of ascension. It can be, really, anything — since it is the primal pattern that created all things and all universes, both visible and invisible (see The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, volumes I & II).

In Ancient Egypt, this primal pattern was called the Mer-Ka-Ba. It was merkabaactually three words, not one. Mer meant a kind of light that rotated within itself. Ka meant spirit, in this case referring to the human spirit. And Ba meant the human body — though it also could mean the concept of Reality that spirit holds. And so the entire word in ancient Egypt referred to a rotating light that would take the spirit and the body from one world into another.”  You can read more here: http://www.spiritofmaat.com/archive/sep2/merkaba.htm

Wishing everyone the best of energies for the New Year!

Monthly Symbol: Shooting Star for December

Star of the Hero by Nicholas Roerich. From wikiart.org. Click the image to enlarge.

Shooting star is my pick to be the symbol of December here at Soul Fields.  Wishes and dreams are being fulfilled. Connecting with our inner child we are able to see the miracles and magic everywhere and bring a sense of awe and wonder into our lives.

I chose an image of a male star gazer, because the female is so much the emphasis today when it comes to spirituality from the newer perspective. (Not that it is disconnected from the male point of view, quite the contrary.)
