A Dictionary of Symbols Book Review:

A classic encyclopedia of symbols by Catalan polymath Joan Cirlot that illuminates the symbolic underpinnings of myth, modern psychology, literature, and art. Juan Eduardo Cirlot’s A Dictionary of Symbols is a feat of scholarship, an act of the imagination, and a tool for contemplation, as well as a work of literature, a reference book that is as indispensable as it is brilliant and learned. Cirlot was a composer, a poet, an art critic, and a champion of modern art whose interest in surrealism helped to bring him to the study of symbolism. Carl Jung, Mircea Eliade, René Guénon, Erich Fromm, and Gaston Bachelard also helped to shape his thinking in a book that explores the space between the world at large and the world within, where, as Cirlot sees it, nothing is meaningless, everything is significant, and everything is in some way related to something else. Running from “abandonment” to “zone” by way of “flute” and “whip,” spanning the cultures of the world, and including a wealth of visual images to further bring the reality of the symbol home, A Dictionary of Symbols, here published for the first time in English in its original, significantly enlarged form, is a luminous and illuminating investigation of the works of eternity in time.

The Big Book of Reiki Symbols Book Review:

The traditional symbols of the Usui System of Reiki take a key position in this unique tradition. Without them and their mantra's, Reiki is not possible. The dedication rituals necessary for the practice of Reiki as well as the complex healings can only be accomplished on the foundation of Usui symbols with the certainty and effectiveness one expects from Reiki. Written in a remarkably precise and lucid style by two foremost authors on Reiki, this compendium reveals indispensable information of tremendous spiritual value.

The Book of Primal Signs Book Review:

An in-depth study of the sacred meanings behind ancient and enduring symbols • Explains the multiple forms and uses of symbols from ancient times to the present day, reflecting their roots in folk magic and the Western Mystery tradition • Examines more than 40 glyphs, such as the cross, fleur de lis, and pentagram, as well as several families of symbols, such as craftsmen’s marks and runes • Includes more than 300 unique woodcuts, drawings, calligraphy, and photographs--many never before reproduced From ancient rock and cave art to the contemporary brand logos of politics and business, human beings have always created symbols to denote specific ideas, groups, or important objects as well as to convey deeper information than can be communicated in words. Many glyphs have retained their meanings over millennia whereas some have modern meanings vastly different from the original connotation. In this study of symbols, Nigel Pennick explores glyphs as agents of higher consciousness and ports of access to the collective unconscious, acknowledging the continuity of tradition, both deliberate and not, as well as how interpretations of some symbols, such as the swastika, have changed dramatically. With more than 300 unique woodcuts, drawings, calligraphy, and photographs--many never before reproduced--Pennick examines ancient and enduring glyphs in detail, such as the circle, cross, eye, pentagram, fleur de lis, tree of life, and horseshoe, as well as several families of symbols, such as craftsmen’s marks, runes, symbolic beasts, human heads and skulls, and the sigils of Mammon. The author explains the multiple forms and uses of each from ancient times to the present day, reflecting their roots in the Western Mystery tradition. He explores the symbols of high magic such as the glyph of John Dee’s monad, those of folk magic such as the traditional cock on the weather vane, and the creation of modern glyphs such as the peace sign and the anarchy symbol. Contrasting the hi-jacked use of power symbols in modern advertising with the vital role of symbols in traditional arts and crafts, Pennick reveals how symbols link the cosmic with the terrestrial and allow us to infuse the mundane with the numinous.

Sticking out the tongue is still a polite sign of greeting in northern India and Tibet (see Body Parts). Cosmic Egg In ancient times the primeval universe-or the Great Mother-took the form of an egg. It carried all numbers and letters within an ellipse, to show that everything is contained within one form at the beginning (see Round and Oval Motifs).

Revelation: A Book Of Symbols Made Easy Book Review:

Author John T. Addicks Jr. paints a grim but realistic picture of what is to come on this earth based on what is written in the book of Revelation—the Rapture, the Tribulation, and the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. As a tool used by God to help everyone prepare for the end times, John presents us with facts gathered from the Bible to convince us to choose what is right and to walk the right path to God. He shows us what will happen (and it will happen) to everyone on this earth, and no one will be spared. And only God knows when this will happen. John also shows us, through a short story, probable situations that might happen once these events will occur. His one goal for all this is to save everyone from meeting this dire and horrible fate. He wants all of us to realize the error of our ways and repent and ask forgiveness from God—before it’s too late.

Book of Symbols Book Review:

The Book of Symbols is an ancient text written by the Society of Folk in their beautiful language of geodimensional design. It contains no words, only mandala-like Symbols that have the power to inspire intuitive perceptions and healing. Each Symbol is holographic in nature, with multiple layers of information encompassing all time, all space, and all dimensions. All that is required to release the inspiration of a particular Symbol is to relax and focus one's attention on it. Dr. Manning retrieved the original Book of Symbols from a field near the village of Avebury in southwest England. After studying the book, Kamala Gandhi initially drew each Symbol from memory and then rendered them as they appear in this book using vector based graphic software. Her renditions are exact.
