Silvia was looking for her very own amulet “post-it” to attach to herself as a constant reminder of that which she was directing her life toward: self-fulfillment.
The design sent to me by Silvia.
I sent her several suggestions, all the symbols that I felt would serve to recall her goal: from runes of strength and enterprise to graphic representations of the third chakra, which is associated with will-power and action.
I advised her to take some time to meditate on everything and then tell me what felt right for her… After one week she wrote to me – “I feel this” – sending me the image of a rectangle with two concentric circles, totally outside of my suggestions.
“Alright, if this is what you feel, this is what we will make.”
Once again, I received confirmation that when one speaks of symbols it is a very subjective matter. As Alejandro Jodorowsky wrote: “A symbol does not offer a precise concept, but rather acts as a mirror which reflects the researcher’s level of Consciousness.”
It is as though the pendant worn by Silvia were repeating to her and to her alone a silent mantra which, through its vibrations, reminds her of the aspiration for which she created it:
“I honor the force that is within me.
The fire that is in me burns away all blocks and fears.
I bring tasks to a finish easily and without effort.
I can do everything that I wish to do.”
And it was truly with fire that I worked the silver to create the circles for Silvia, shaping them by hand and beating them in a variety of ways to highlight their uniqueness, so that Silvia might be reflected in them.
