This Summer Collection we are introducing our newest signature print, Sacred Symbols, composed of universally uplifting symbols that enourage inspiration, positivity and mindful living. Infuse your practice and your life with the meaningful intentions reflected in these symbols.
The Evil Eye is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world and has symbolism in almost every country in the world and in every religion, such as Judaism, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, and Christianity. Wearing an eye symbol is thought in many cultures to offer protection from the curse of the "evil eye" by reflecting its glare. The eye also symbolizes the "third eye" which extends beyond ordinary sight into the intuitive perception of the subconscious, spiritual and universal.
The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark side of Nature herself. Clarity, reflection, and indirect deduction are gained by passive means. Where the sun will boldly bear down its blaze upon a given philosophical subject - the moon softly enfolds our attention - illumining our psyche in a gossamer glow that is more open to esoteric impressions.
The Hamsa is a sign that symbolizes protection and is meant to bring its owner happiness, luck, good health, and good fortune. The Hamsa Prayer, "Let no sadness come to this heart. Let no trouble come to these arms, Let no conflict come to these eyes, Let my soul be filled with the blessing of joy and peace."
The Yin Yang symbol represents perfect balance. It represents the balance of opposites that create the whole that is life. Often it is related to the balance of feminine and masculine and light and dark. As expressed in the I Ching, the ever-changing relationship between the two poles is responsible for the constant flux of the universe and life in general.
The lotus is symbolic of purity, beauty and the unfolding of infinite possibilities. Rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals. A person’s path in life is said to be similar to that of the Lotus. Starting at the seed stage, early in the karmic cycle, through to the bud emerging from the dirty water, representing a person following the path of spirituality and leaving attachment behind, and finally blossoming, this is when a person has become fully awakened and has achieved nirvana.
