Exploring New Celtic Symbol Mandala Meanings and More: Celtic Mandala Symbolism for Growth and Expansion! Celtic symbol mandalas are a tool for coming in contact with our origins, visions, and desires. They are also helpful for touching our divine ancestry.

What is a Celtic Symbol Mandala?

Essentially, it’s a design created in a circular pattern that is Celtic in nature. We know about mandalas from India, but recently mandalas are showing up in other cultures. The Celtic-centric spiral or mandala designs are intended to draw the viewer into a deeper, ancient wisdom and lineage shared by Celtic people of a long-before time (but not a lost time). By focusing or meditating upon a Celtic mandala, we can hope to achieve deeper connection with this colorful, powerful, vibrant culture.

By focusing on mandalas, our more playful and intuitive side takes over, allowing us to fall into a state of higher awareness.  It is my hope that this awareness leads us to key states that facilitate growth and insight.

How Celtic Mandalas Facilitate and Influence Change Within

As with all mandalas, Celtic symbol mandalas are useful in facilitating expansions in many areas of the human realm. Some examples are…

  • Steadying the mind
  • Observing the soul
  • Communion with Spirit/God
  • Reestablishing balance (external and internal)
  • Grounding ourselves
  • Intuitive channeling
  • Understanding of ancestral origin

“Mandalas have an intuitive character.
Through their symbolical content, they exert a retroactive influence on the unconscious.
They, therefore, possess a “magical” significance.”

~Carl Jung

The Celtic symbol mandalas are a creative spin on the artistic bounty available to us from ancient, prolific Celtic artisans. Celtic culture is rich in symbolism, history and color. By tapping into the Celtic mandala, our minds traverse the ages, and settle back into the time of the Celtic tribes.

Fall into these mandalas and travel through time – these are a great tool to explore, learn, and gather much information about the Celtic way of life.

Celtic Symbol Mandala Designs and Meanings

The Celtic mandala art designs below are provided with a goal to engage our hearts and minds with an anchor.

Triquetra Celtic Symbol Mandala

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.

Spiral Mandala Celtic Symbol

The spiral is prevalent 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.
