Despite having differences, Yin represents negativity, feminism, passiveness and Yang, the bright side represents positivity, activity and masculinity.

- The Third Eye Chakra – Ajna
The colour is indigo, with a chanting sound of “OM” and the main element is light. The perfect location is between the eyes and the forehead and that’s why it is also known as brow chakra. This chakra is associated with the sixth sense of your body and the intuition that governs the functioning of other chakras.
- Flower of Life
The flower of life is an ancient symbol of life, which is multi-symbolic. First of all, it is a geometrically well-designed shape. Secondly, the use of it for spiritual purpose is a nature of life itself. It is symbolic of love, fertility, sanctity and beauty.
- Om Mandala
Om Mandala is a kind of vibration, which connects with the universe. The sound allows the energy to flow around us and it considered one of the most important spiritual symbols. The chanting of OM brings together all the words and sounds in all existing human languages. We feel connected to the divine, which is the ultimate purpose of Om chanting.
- The Chakra Snake
Starting at the very base and ending just above the head, they follow the length of the spine. Each of the seven chakras has its own meaning, colour and symbol. Since our born day, it has been believed that the life force energy or the kundalini energy resides dormant at the base of the spine, which is coiled up like a serpent.
All these spiritual symbols have their own meaning and different symbols. We hope that you’ve learned something new about the spiritual symbols.
