Creating A Personal Symbol
Creating a personal symbol can be a great way to remind ourselves of what we stand for, our goals, dreams, and stuff that’s important to us.
I love symbolism for millions of reasons, but top of the list is the way symbolic meanings are so adaptive and flexible to our needs. One example of this flexibility is the process of creating personal symbols.
Why would we want to craft our own personal symbols?
Well, for the same reason family crests were designed for hundreds of years. Same reason tartans are made a very specific way. Same reason each country has a flag.
From signet rings, to watermarks, and stone carvings – it’s all about unique identification.
Consider modern-day logos. They are nothing more than visual symbols conveying information about a person, group or a product.
Avia’s Personal Symbol. Sapere Aude is Latin for “Dare to Discern.”
A personal symbol can establish personal identification. But that’s not all. It can alsohelp galvanize your ideals about who you are, what you believe in and even what you want to achieve.
Contemplate your best attributes. How would you express these attributes in a visual way?
Look around in your environment for elements that really sing to your soul. Look for stuff that nurtures you, and reminds you of who you really are, which is a divine being with absolute infinite potential.
Look for colors, animals, plants and concepts that empower you. The whole Universe is packed with elements we can use to incorporate deeper meaning into our lives (and our symbols).
Think about a personal motto or creed, and incorporate that into your personal symbol too.
I’ve created several symbols for myself, including the symbol shown here. My symbol features Jupiter, a cardinal and the uroboros.
Each element of a symbol means something profound. It not only identifies a large part of who I am; it also represents concepts for which I stand. Oh, and the phrase, “Sapere Aude” – that’s Latin for Dare to Discern. That’s me to the bone.
I encourage you to invest the time to create your own personal symbol, and I suspect you will undergo some significant internal evolutions, like the following high-points shown below.
What Creating a Personal Symbol Can Facilitate
- Learning more about who you are
- Identifying yourself with nobler, higher ideals
- Raising your energy up to these higher concepts
- Conveying your beliefs in an artful, visual and memorable way
- Giving yourself a grounding/focusing tool for your intentions/beliefs
Creating a meaningful, personal symbol is a innovative way to keep focus of the elements that are important to you. The best part about this exercise is that the meaning of a symbol is personal, and unique to you, like a fingerprint.
