About the Triple Spiral
Historically, spirals represents the following…
The Triple Spiral (found in many diverse spiritual traditions, including Celtic and Buddhist) can represent:
* The life experience of body, mind and spirit
* Letting go, surrender, release
* Awareness of the One within the context of the whole
* Connectivity and union with deific and cosmic energies
* Revolutions of time, stars, planets and the way of natural progress
*Connection with the three experiences of being: with the earth, with self and with the divine
*Continual cycle of Life, Death, and Rebirth
*The Triple Goddess
Spirals can also be thought of as representing the act of stepping outside the purely physical realm, entering a creative domain where dreams and intuition merge into conscious awareness.
Ancient Celtic artists used the spiral symbol as a mind-altering creative process in which the act of creating a spiral in their work released their consciousness into a creative splendor.
The spiral symbol can represent the path leading from outer consciousness (materialism, external awareness, ego, outward perception) to the inner soul (enlightenment, unseen essence, nirvana, cosmic awareness).
Movements between the inner (intuitive, intangible) world and the outer (matter, manifested) world are mapped by the spiraling of archetypal rings; marking the evolution of humankind on both an individual and collective scale.
In terms of rebirth or growth, the spiral symbol can represent the consciousness of nature beginning from the core or center and thus expanding outwardly. This is a universal theme underlying & uniting many historical and current consciousness/mystical traditions.
The Triple Spiral also encompasses the triple reality of body, mind and spirit.
Plus… it’s just really an awesome looking symbol.
