The Latin meaning for triquetra is “three-cornered.” It’s also the symbol for the holy trinity. Being a holy sign, this Celtic symbol is perfect for mandala meditation. It stills the chattering as our focus is funneled to the center of the triquetra. Once centered, we are able to feel the connection with the spiritual trinity, and thus become one with the source of power. Also see my page on the triskelion symbol meaning.
The spiral is prevelant in a vast amount of Celtic ruins and remains. This symbol is often found in many other ancient cultures spanning the globe. This is a powerful sign as it represents spiritual awareness, and expansion of thought. Focus upon this spiral mandala augments the understanding that we are more than our bodies and more than the confines of this earth. Delving deeper into this symbol we find that we are ever growing and increasing, and as our awareness expands, so too does our energy. As such, we are reminded to pass our positive energy out to others and the world, ultimately making the universe a better place to live and grow. See my post for a little more meaning of spiral.
