Yin Yang And The Five Elements of Tao

Later this month, I will be launching a brand new website and offering courses and classes in ancient symbolism. The example below is a sneak-peek at a course on religious symbolism in which science and religion lock arms in perfect union.

If you would like to know more about the ancient wisdom concealed in symbolism, contact Master Mind Content for more information about our courses.

 

Yin Yang – The duality of mankind

Scientists have demonstrated that everything is made of energy; atoms and matter. Our bodies are made from the same elements that float around the Universe and also attracts and emits the flow of electromagnetic energy in the atmosphere.

What Is The Symbolic Meaning Of A Square?

The square is used symbolically in spiritual and esoteric artwork to represent attributes of the four.

In the many ancient writings, the four was expressed using nature; the four directions, the four winds, the four seasons, the four elements, the four evangelists and so on. Maybe you know some of your own. Continue reading What Is The Symbolic Meaning Of A Square?

The Symbolic Meaning of Bells

Bells have a deep symbolic meaning that is associated with the mind and the expansion of consciousness. You have to do some digging to reach that conclusion of course. Well, you don’t because I’ve done all the graft for you.

Book Extract – The Museum of the Royal Tombs of Sipan, Chiclayo

Built across three floors, the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Sipan is a stand out feature against the small, somewhat dated buildings squatting in the backdrop. Shaped like a pyramid with a huge red slope leading to the entrance, it has a distinctive golden design of Ai Apaec, the Moche creator God, on the front wall.

It is a fairly large museum and contains over 1400 artefacts including ceramics, jewellery and clothing. But it is not so much the artefacts themselves that most interest me, but the symbols which I consistently find on them.

I have written at length over the course of this book about the symbols used by the ancients and have done my best to explain what they mean, or at least what they may mean. For example, you will remember one of the most prominent symbols is the snake or serpent. It appears everywhere and represents wisdom and the underworld or spirit within. It is very present again in Moche and Lambayeque artefacts.
