We live in a world of “symbols.” Just take a look around you, they’re everywhere. Society has come to depend on symbols to represent a multitude of things from bathrooms to exits, to hazard zones and crime scenes. But, did you know that some symbols we now associate with evil and wickedness were actually created from a place of love and hope and were once used to represent only goodness? It’s true!
I AM a “Master Teacher of Shamballa (Reiki) MDH Energies” and symbols are a very important modality that are used during healing/energy sessions. I was first guided to become a “Shamballa” Practitioner after my life changing spinal chord injury, when a very good friend of mine suggested I go for a healing session. It was such an enlightening, eye opening, beautiful, experience and it made me realize not only how much self-power we all have inside of us, but also how much power we “allow” others to have over us. Needless to say, “Shamballa” became a vital part of both my healing experience and my daily life. Over the next several years in between surgeries and recoveries, I attended classes and earned my certificate as a “Master Teacher of Shamballa Energies.”
“What is Shamballa” you ask? Well, I could write several pages about “Shamballa MDH (Multi-Dimensional Healing), so I’ll give you the short, condensed definition and next time I’ll dedicate an entire post to its many sterling qualities. “The essence of Shamballa is Love and Freedom . . . being totally in the here and now as the glorious beings that you are–now! Step into your freedom-love without conditions and wholeness!” –Hari Baba (formerly known as John Armitage) founder. Shamballa is a blend of several different types of energy;
- Universal Life Force (Reiki) Energy
- Mahatma Energy-also known as the I Am presence
- Christ Consciousness or the energy of the Ascended Masters
As I said before, symbols play an extremely important role in Shamballa. Take a really good look at the symbol below. What is the very first thing that comes to your mind?
If you said; “Swastika” that’s exactly what I thought the very first time I saw this symbol. Did you know The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means “good fortune” or “well-being.” The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky. To this day it is a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Odinism. It was only when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party began to use it that it’s true meaning was destroyed and it became a symbol of evil and wickedness.
In “Shamballa,” the Antahkarana is an ancient healing and meditation symbol that has been used in Tibet and China for thousands of years. Simply by having this powerful symbol in your presence, it will create a positive effect on the chakras and the aura. When doing healing work, it focuses and deepens the actions of the healing energies involved. The Antahkarana has its own consciousness. Directed by the Higher Self, it always has a beneficial effect and can never be misused or used to cause harm.
There are many other ancient symbols that when first created were meant as Talisman of good, but whose meanings in present day society are associated with negativity and evil deeds. The history of such symbols is fascinating and well worth reading about.
