It doesn’t come up in Aztec or Norse as far as I know, but what DOES come up in almost all, are:
1: sacred geometry, esp. pyramids
2: the eye as an active force, not passive organ that only receives
3: use of idols to draw spirits into for enhanced communications, these can be shaped like humans, animals, or a combination with fantastical (not existing in nature) elements, like wings or extra arms and heads, naturally formed, or abstract shapes (like yantras)
4: that words, spoken sounds, and also written numbers and letters have an innate power, beyond their usefulness in everyday life.
Not a comprehensive list but IMO a better tree to bark up than one word?
