What's your Symbol?

I remember back in the day THE question was “what’s your sign”. My question these days is what’s your symbol. In working with soul art you put yourself out onto the canvas, expressing yourself, your spirit, your emotions through color and symbols. Remember when you used to doodle on your pee-chee folder (yeah, going WAY BACK) . . . . wish I could take a look back. I do remember writing over and over and over again I Love Fred Brecht, ha ha ha ha.

I find myself always putting a spiral in my journal, my art and my website!! Yesterday as I was putzing around the house I discovered three items that have spirals, two of which I have had for YEARS. The rug has seen better days but I just couldn’t bring myself to part with it, ahhh, now I know why! Same with the napkin ring holders that I never use!


I’ve associated the spiral with community, connection but this morning I found this meaning which RESONATES with me!

The Spiral is a sacred symbol that represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to Source. The spiral symbol can represent the consciousness of nature beginning from its center expanding outwardly .

So tell me, what’s YOUR symbol?
