What symbol holds the most power over you?
We are bombarded with symbols every single day. But what one means the most to you?
That would have to be a cross by far. It means so much to Christians and represents the trinity. Father, Son, and the Holy ghost.
I never really knew or understood the symbolism of it, other than the story of Jesus being nailed to it. Is it more in depth still than that?
I'd love to learn more about it. Btw, Merry Christmas!
Oh so sorry, how rude of me Merry Christmas Thompson!! I think you should, it is very interesting.
Hmm, the more I think about it, the more I think my answer is... nothing? I can't think of any symbol that holds any special relevance or importance to me. Maybe I'm not thinking big enough or something.
As another poster has already said, I cannot think of any symbol that strikes me or holds any power over me.
Am inclined to go along with the previous answer: no particular symbol holds any particular relevance. The one you show, by the way, the 'Flower of Life,' is very significant apparently, I recall reading something about it in an essay called Sacred Geometry. The points, taken in various combinations, make up the geometry of every single crystal extant in the world. It's something you might enjoy looking into. Cube, Octahedron, Tetrahedron et cetera.
I can recall many years ago whilst in deep meditation seeing - at different times - two symbols come up in my 'mind's eye', so to speak. One was the symbol used by the Masons or the Jews - the old W with another W upside down superimposed on it. The other was a swastika, but not the Nazi one. This one was reversed. I'm lead to believe it means exactly the opposite of what old Adolph stood for - it means a the move towards goodness. I can only assume these were presented to me by a Higher part of my own self.
As for other symbols such as those used commercially, I think most of the companies and corporations have a damn cheek to register them so that others can't use them. It makes if more an more difficult for people to come up with simple symbols without being threatened by some sort of law suit.
As a Christian, one might think that I would be held by the power of the cross.
But no symbol holds power over me. And no Christian should be held by any symbol, just as (by the Ten Commandments) they should not worship any graven image of God, gods or any other force in the universe.
Physical symbols are of this physical realm. They are based upon the continuity of this action-reaction reality. Returning to God requires that we understand our own non-physical and discontinuity-bound nature. Creation is a discontinuous act. So are forgiveness and inspiration. They break with the continuity of reality and the chains of the past that would otherwise have prevented them.
God wants us to be fearless and confident, but He also wants us to be humble (without ego), which is also discontinuous in nature, because the humble person does not depend upon titles, degrees, possessions, money, allegiances, power and the like.
I like the symbol you used. It is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional pattern of universal energy. You can learn more about it in the video, "Thrive."
The Cross! It is a constant reminder of who died for me. I am able to use its meaningto keep me grounded and focused on God's plan.
I don't think there can be any symbol that can hold power over me..
Only people add power to symbols. They, in and of themselves, are meaningless without personal meaning.
Hexagon. Every morning I used to wake up seeing a black Hexagon grid in my vision just before I open my eyes. Every time I tried to focus on the grid using my inner vision it would disappear so eventually I stopped trying. Some time afterward I found out that the structure of Carbon is a Hexagon and Carbon is the base element of Life. To me it is a symbol of power because the force of life is powerful. It is also why I have put a Hexagon grid as my profile background.
The peace symbol, it is used so much and yet we are moving so far away from it as possible....it is something wrong with the symbol or us?
The hand and the little walking man on the traffic light. They tell me whether to stop walking or keep going every day.

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would be great if there was a feature by which we could hide the copyright symbol once...

I'd like to suggest that "normal" Hubs should have an exclamation mark next to them on our account page.I think there's a very high risk that new Hubbers will misunderstand the normal/Featured system. I've already answered one enquiry from a Hubber who has misunderstood it.He...
