5 Energy Symbols for Your Home
Positive Energy Symbols
Common everyday shapes can be used as powerful symbols to enhance and balance the positive energies in your everyday environment in two ways:
- First, they can be used as a conductor to focus and project your own personal energies outward.
- Second, symbols can magnify and attract positive energy forces into your life.
The circle is a potent universal symbol. It represents eternity, completion, unity, the universe, perfection and the sacred feminine.
A triangle relates to the combined power of the body, mind and spirit. It also represents mother, father, child and the past, present and future.
The square represents the four elements- wind, water, fire and earth - and the four cardinal directions.
4.Pentacle (five-pointed star-pointing up):
The pentacle also represents the four basic elements of wind, water, earth and fire, with the 5th point representing the spirit. The pentagram is a powerful sign often used for protection from negative energy.
The symbol for infinity looks like the number eight laid on its side. In ancient India and Tibet, it represented perfection, duality, and the union between male and female. In tarot, it is a magical symbol and represents the balancing of universal forces. An infinity sign can be very effective when displayed in your home.

The triangle can also represent the delicate balances of...
Ego, Spirit, and Soul;
Body, Mind and Spirit;
Mother, Father and Child; and
the Past, Present and Future.
According to one ancient belief, an upright equilateral triangle, with one point at the top and two at the base, is seen as a masculine sun symbol that represents spirit, divinity, fire, life, prosperity and harmony.
- In contrast, the reversed triangle is a feminine lunar force, representing mother earth, water, rain and grace.
- In Christianity and Judaism, a triangle is often used as a symbol for God and the Holy Trinity.
- In magic, pointing up, it represents fire, pointing downward it means water.
- When upright and downward triangles are joined together, they form the Star of David or the Seal of Solomon and symbolize the balance knowledge.
- Before becoming a prominent symbol of Judaism, the six pointed star was used by alchemists and was said to have also been used by Druid priests as protection against evil ghosts.
This mystic symbol placed in your home can highlight your connection with the spiritual world.
The Square Symbol - The Physical World
The Square represents our physical world, stability and strength. Like the quartered circle, it points to the four compass directions: north, east, south and west.
It symbolizes the four elements- wind, water, fire and earth- as well as the four seasons.
Unlike the circle and the "spiral", which are universally feminine symbols, the square represents masculine qualities.
The Pentagram or Pentacle
Like the circle a pentagram symbolizes eternity, infinity and the cycles of life and nature. A circle is often seen around a pentagram, in this form it is meant for protection and to contain contain positive forces.
The pentagram usually represents the four basic elements; needed to sustain human life; (wind, water, earth and fire) with the 5th point representing the Spirit. The protective quality of the pentagram can be used to banish negative energy, or to bring positive energy to you, depending on how it's drawn.
In ancient Christian times:
- The five points of the pentagram were symbolic of the five wounds of Christ (2 on his wrists, 2 at his ankles and 1in his side).
- The Roman Emperor Constantine used the pentagram in his seal and amulet.
- The pentagram was once referred to as the "Star of Bethlehem".
The Infinity Symbol - Creation, Unity
The infinity image, otherwise known as the lemniscate (from the Latin lemniscus for ribbon) perfectly illustrates the endless cycle of creation. It embodies the past, present and future, all in one, and reminds us that we are eternal.
Seen as two equal circles merge to unite both masculine and feminine forces, it gives us a sense of perfect balance as these "two become one".
At home, the figure eight, represented in the infinity symbol, can be used in feng shui to create balance, unblock "chi" and stimulate the positive flow of energy .
