Question
Symbol Pendant
Symbol Pendant  
I work at an estate jewelry store and we came across this unique piece. We are not sure of the meaning of the symbols and I was hoping you could help us out. If any of this looks familiar to you or if you have an idea of a direction I could go to continue my research that would be amazing thank you.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, and the fact that I can't really help you.  It's a unique piece and I've never seen anything like it. My first impression was that it's Hindu related, the person sitting in meditation, and what I first thought was the (7) Chakra system but that changed as there are (8) nodes. That then put me in mind of the kabbalah (tree of Life) in a simplified way.  The birds reminded me of the Phoenix and I'm not sure, but the top looks like the eye. Other than that, I can't help you.

One question I have is, is the item made from a form or mold, or is it the original, hand carved piece. To me it looks like it's from a mold, so there are more than one. I did a google image search and didn't find one like it.

Regards

Reed

I have thirteen years of personal experience in many "new age" areas. Some of the tools I use are Crystals, Sound, Colour, Massage, Touch Therapy, Reiki, Accupressure, Aromatherapy, Body Movement, Ear Candeling, Herbs, Plants and animals, Runes, Cards, Pendulums, etc, as well as Meditation/Visualization, Chakras, Auras, energy, Clearing your astral plane, Meeting animal guides and totems, Meeting your higher self and guides, Past life regression, Channeling, Archetypical and Shamanic and multi-dimensional journeys, and Feeling, Healing and Understanding Emotions.etc... I've found that all these tools have lead me to begin to heal my emotions and in turn, my physical Body and Mind. These tools are not merely hear-say (what someone else has told me) or a mental concept I have, but are what I have personally experiencved and am now applying in my daily life... In Nov. 2008 I published my first book "Journeys from the Heart Centre" - Meditation as a tool for healing and self-empowerment....

Experience

Reading what others had written or said was confusing and belwildering and only offered part truths. I wanted to know more. What linked all these part truths together? What was the real truth? What is Love and Life? One day I awoke to the realization that what linked all these part truths together was DENIAL. So, then I was faced with another delima, It wasn't just about "other" people denials, but I also had to face my own, and how was I going to do that? I had no one to turn to, no one to guide me as no one wanted to go where I was talking about going, and what that meant. I then discoverd how to do that on my own with the use of meditation/Visualization and thus began MY search for Truth, Love and Life............. Meditation/visualization and all its various aspects are key tools I use in exploring and expanding conscious awareness. In my journeys, I asked the who, what where, when where why and how questions and everytime I got an answer, I had a hundred more questions. What I now share is the knowledge, techniques and insights that I have personally experienced or have intuitivly felt when assisting others. I also work with many aspects of healing considered "new age" or wholistic which means healing ALL parts of of our being..............
