This design incorporates symbols of numerous traditions, including the Hebrew and Sanskrit alphabet within the body of the Ouroboros, the snake that swallows its own tail and thus regenerates itself from itself. In its head are the seed of life, heart, OM and the all-seeing eye, which creates by the act of seeing or visualization.
Other symbols are the 8-fold Buddhist path which is depicted with the green spheres. Within it the blue spheres show the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.
In the center are the infinity symbol overlaying the Yin-Yang in a sphere which is part of the Wiccan symbol. The crescents on either side are part of the Islamic Crescent and Star.
A cross as well as a 5, 6 and 7-pointed star extend to the 8 trigrams of the I-Ching, the 4 alchemical symbols for Earth, Water, Air and Fire within a ring of the Chinese and Western Zodiacal signs. The 12 inverted hearts follow the curve of the Phi-Spiral.
Open your heart and receive the gifts of the spirit - it is the gift of your Self.
