Spiritual images can come from many cultures and religions. Such images can be abstracted like mandalas, or be clear in the statement like a Christ figure or a Buddha. Often the colors in spiritual images have a symbolic meaning. The colors used can, for example, symbolize the colors of the chakras or certain deities.
Certain colors are assigned specific symbol contents. Every religion or spiritual tradition uses their own symbols. Christianity, for example, uses the cross as a symbol. In Buddhism, there are symbols such as the OM, the endless knot, the chalice or the Dharmarad, which have a high profile. Such symbols are often included in esoteric images.
Can a wall tattoo really be spiritual?
Of course, wall tattoos can have a spiritual content. It can be, for example, a spiritual saying or a Buddhist mantra. Window pictures or wall tattoos can serve as spiritual inspirational aids. Certain spiritual symbols are clearly in the lead, because they have a well-known meaning and are easy to represent. A mantra with Tibetan characters on the wall means the endless repetition of its content, as it is multiplied by the Tibetans' belief in each viewing and touching. The endless knot has a decorative as well as a symbolic content. This can also be understood intuitively as a non-Buddhist. A similarly known spiritual symbol is the flower of life. Even better known is the Yin-Yang symbol from Chinese Taoism. The spiral is found as a spiritual symbol in many religions. It stands for the universe, but also for pure energy.
Among the more widespread spiritual images are the intricate Celtic symbols. Similar to a mandala is the Sri Yantra. It is permeated by a mysterious, yet logical order, which is also the property of many mandalas. Since it comes from the Indian cultural area, certain similarities with known mandalas are not to be overlooked. The full meaning of such spiritual symbols is revealed only to the initiate. The average European knows more about the general meaning.
If you are more interested in the meanings of spiritual symbols, you can get a corresponding lexicon. That even a wall tattoo can be spiritual is not a question. It is interesting, if someone chooses a certain symbol, because it attracts him even without knowledge of the meaning content - or if someone chooses it consciously, because he wants to use his effect purposefully. Humans have an affinity for certain symbols. That's why they often start to get interested in spiritual imagery. Others get access through a naturopath, book or course in a spiritual bookstore.
How can spiritual motives enrich life?
Spiritual pictures are not only nice to look at. They create a certain atmosphere in the room. That's why they should also be placed in a suitable place and work there. If a wall tattoo is spiritual, it can charge the viewer with energy every morning. It can remind him of his good intentions or assist in the morning meditation. Spiritual images are quasi abbreviations or abstractions for larger and more complex meanings. They represent these in symbolic form and yet contain the entire universe of thoughts and ideas behind them. That's why symbols are so fascinating. Their beauty radiates everything that stands behind it. The complexity of a torus or mandala affects us, even without having to understand the entire mental structure behind it.
After a while, many people want to know more about it. For example, how does a blue torus work in contrast to one that has an orange background? Why is strikingly often symmetry an important component of spiritual symbols? Spiritual motives give us puzzles. They ask questions and at the same time contain answers. This enriches our lives with a component that appeals to our higher consciousness and subconscious mind. They affect our soul and mind like a magnet that attracts spiritual forces.
The fascination of spiritual images
Whether the Egyptian pyramids were deliberately constructed as a prana generator, we still do not know. In fact, they represent something that has to do with beliefs, certain star constellations, and magical calculations. By this we see that man has always been in search of perfection and a higher truth. He devised complex spiritual images and symbols. Some of them revealed themselves
him in a vision. Others came from the calculations of wise men who were predestined to encode complex beliefs in a symbol or image.
In this way, spiritual images could be made accessible to everyone and unfold their radiance. In the future, spiritual symbols stood for everything that had emerged as central thoughts within a spiritual tradition. They unfolded their spiritual power wherever people created sacred spaces. But they were soon found in every humble hut where the inhabitants of reading and studying were not powerful. The sacred symbol became the messenger of all that was divine and holy.
What would a world be without spiritual images?
A mandala with a lotus in the middle symbolizes purity of faith and doctrine. His perfection and his colors develop a radiance that is beyond everyday life and never gets boring. It is a fascination that makes all religious and spiritual symbols feel this power. Basically, it does not matter where we look at spiritual symbols. Whether they affect us in a book or hang above an altar as a representative of spiritual meaning, the effect is the same.
But you can strike a book after looking at it - and with it the effect that spiritual images can have on us long term disappears. If a wall tattoo is spiritual, it will stay in the place it was intended for. It unfolds its power. It is a reminder and a positive reminder to us that addresses our consciousness in many ways. Our senses react to the colors. Our eyes take on the perfection of a symbol or enjoy its complexity.
Many spiritual motives are energy pictures
Many spiritual motives are intended as energy pictures. The energy they transfer to us is based on both the colors chosen and the meaning of the symbol. The power of colors alone is an interesting topic. It has been proven that blue calms and green or orange tones stimulate the mind. This amazing effect can even be measured by brain activity or blood pressure. When a wall tattoo is spiritual, it serves as a means to quit the banality of our lives and devote ourselves to deeper things. The essential questions about who we are or where we come from and where we are going are well-known examples of man's preoccupation with what lies beyond his normal horizon of experience.
Our earthly life is tiring, stressful and loud. It does not provide energy but knows many energy vampires and bloodsuckers that drain our energy. Some people suffer a burn-out. It is by no means a covert depression, but a healthy reaction to a lowered energy level. Spiritual symbols can help recharge lost energies. Yoga, tai-chi or chi-gong, meditation or prayers are also suitable means to replenish energy resources. Smarter it would be, we would not let the supplies of life energy even to run out. They are by no means inexhaustible, but require conservation and care.
Use the power of the symbols to have an energy station at hand at all times.
