I realized yesterday I have a strong affinity for symbols.
I always have. Show me a piece of art with a wizard fighting a demon and I’m looking at the symbols embroidered on his robe. lol
I also have an affinity for words, but that’s probably because words are symbols.
Sigils, runes, talismans, and wards interest me, but I want to know more about other symbols as well. Where should I start?
Is it effective to create your own symbols?
If you create your own symbol, are you actually creating a thought form that’s linked to the physical representation of the symbol?
Has anyone ever run across the image I attached to this message?
It’s a pentagram at the center of another pentagram. It looks like a pentagram with an inverted pentagram within it.
I saw that symbol pop into my mind while performing energy work. In my mind’s eye, it was rotating. Try it. Just by rotating it slowly, you’ll watch the outer pentagram appear like it’s inverting while the center pentagram changes too.
To me, that symbol represents the union of light (the pentagram) and dark (the inverted pentagram) with the four physical elements and the spirit.
