My newest favorite symbol
I'm not much into the idea that symbols in and of themselves have power. I believe it is our intentions that do that. But that aside, this symbol is such a good reminder.
See, in this symbol you see the infinity symbol and a dark, thick line cutting through the center of it. That line interrupts the endless flow as a reminder to me to slow down, to take that space, right there in the middle of the endless cycle of swirling, to be...in that space...still.
I'm not one for tattoos (or at least not yet), but I am going to put this symbol on the inside of my wrist in henna as a reminder. To spend more time in the gap. To stop. To listen. To be. The eternal swirling continues, but there can be little breaks within it. A good reminder when I do healing work too. Get out of my head, spend the healing time in the gap. The place of unknowing. The place of not thinking it through. The place of allowing. The place where I realize it it not me, but the collective that works to heal.
