Across various ages and times, the artistic sensibilities of humankind driven by the spiritual bent of mind have led to certain symbols that are revered today. A lot of these symbols or designs, or design philosophies, have found their way into our daily lives. Some by way of decoration pieces or artifacts that adorn our living rooms like the ever-popular "Laughing Buddha." The "Evil Eye" that's placed prominently at the entrance of the house to ward off the proverbial Evil Eye. Such concepts have even found their way into the designs that can be worn like a piece of Jewelry. You would have come across a fair number of them on as well. Let's do a bit of deep dive into some of these symbols, designs, and design principles and see what they mean and their relevance:

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is a symbol that can be found in many contexts throughout time. Mythology, philosophy, and religion in many cultures place massive importance on the Tree as a connection between the five natural elements and the infinite source of energy.

The Tree of life is a symbol of physical and spiritual nourishment, transformation and liberation, union, and fertility. Many connect trees with the death and rebirth cycles of life.


Om is a universal primordial sound by which the universe is believed to have been created. Used in Hinduism since its inception, Om could be considered the primary spiritual symbol of that great religion. It's said that deep meditation naturally brings this sound to the forefront, enveloping the practitioner in a universal glow.

When chanted, Om is thought to blend time – past, present, and future. The consciousness is said to be freed to remember its state of connection to the infinite source of creation. The symbol represents this all-encompassing sound beyond the scope of language.

Seven Chakras

The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. You've probably heard people talk about "unblocking" their chakras, which refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely. Harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit. Chakra translates to "wheel" in Sanskrit, and you can imagine them like wheels of free-flowing positive energy.


A healing pyramid harnesses high-vibrational energy. It radiates your intentions through its apex, giving immense power to manifest them.
