Just Discovered: Ancient ‘NLP Symbol’ Teaches You To Overcome Challenges & Create True Success!

They are all around us, we see them every day, we are influenced by them, we even like to wear clothes that showcase them, people design them, almost all businesses have them… That which I refer to, are ‘Logos’. Logos can represent many things, some are simple shapes, some intricate designs, many even have hidden coded messages in them! The origins of logos are royal emblems, indicating a royal house. However, it’s the origin of these emblems that interest me more so, symbols… and to be more precise, ancient symbols.

Symbols have been used for communication for over at least 40,000 years based on early cave paintings that have been discovered:

As mankind evolved, the symbols become more complex and meaningful. We find evidence of the use and importance of symbology in ancient Egyptian, Mayan, Sumerian, Greek, Roman, Druid cultures to name a few.

RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS

Today symbols are used by every religion as their ‘logo’:

ANCIENT USE OF SYMBOLS

However, some of the most intriguing use of symbols have emerged from the Indian Subcontinent, from what is commonly referred to as the Hindu culture or as some believe ‘religion’.

One of the most intriguing and controversial symbols is the Swastika. Misused by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s, the Swastika has been part of Hindu culture for several thousand years. It can also be found in greek and celtic culture, and in the ruins of the city of Troy, dating back 4000 years. The word ‘swastika’ is actually a Sanskrit word pronounced ‘svasktika’, and while many meanings have been ascociated with it, it generally symbolizes ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, ‘Good Luck’. In 1979, Sanskrit scholar P.R. Sarkar said that the deeper meaning of the word meant ‘Permanent Victory’. The earliest known object with swastika-motifs is a bird from the tusk of a mammoth from the paleolithic settlement of Mezine, Ukraine, dated to 10,000 BCE. However, more extensive use of the Swastika can be traced to ancient India during the emergence of the Indus Valley Civilization 7000-10,000 years ago.

Swastika's in different cultures
We will dive deeper into the Swastika symbol another time.

DO SYMBOLS REALLY HAVE POWERS?

The Swastika is one of many ancient symbols, that many believe ‘have a certain power or magic’ associated with them. While I have no evidence to dismiss the belief, I see symbols having a different type of power.

I believe symbols contain ‘meaning’ and when your brain connects the ‘meaning’ to the symbol it acts like a wisdom trigger. It’s not the symbol that has power, but the meaning, the symbolic wisdom that has the power!

Ancient man derived symbols from different sources, over time, they connected the created symbols to represent certain ‘teaching’, ‘wisdom’, ‘scientific concepts’, ‘cosmology’, etc. Maybe the Swastika was derived from the sun, or maybe the spiraling galaxy (for those who believe ancient astronauts theory), regardless of the source of inspiration, today the Swastika has come to represent, strength, power, victory. Knowing this, we borrow a term from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programing) and can anchor the meaning of the symbol to the symbol, and thus, when you see a Swastika, it triggers the emotions and thoughts you have attached to the symbol. We also have to be aware, that mass media and historical hypnosis, have also turned certain symbols into ones that have know carry a negative meaning.

Knowing this, or being able to appreciating this concept we can move onto one particular symbol that has within it dozens of micro-symbols, such then when you combine the macro and micro symbology, it unfolds as a very intelligent creative design for the achievement of true success, being able to achieve your material objectives while mastering your mind and emotions in the process.

THE SYMBOL YOU CAN USE FOR OVERCOMING OBSTALCES

“In anger, the God known as Shiva, cut of the boys head for refusing him entry into his own home, unknown to Shiva, this was his son, created by his wife the Goddess Parvati to stand guard outside their home…”

Who is this ‘Ganesha’, what is Ganesha, surely he can’t be a real God?

Over a billion people regularly pray to Ganesha, some asking for help, some looking for solutions to challenges, others pray to Ganesha for success, or good luck before starting a new business or journey. Non-Hindu’s look upon Ganesha with a curious look… a human pot bellied body with the head of an elephant… while they may not know much about Ganesha, it surely peaks their curiosity.

Hindu’s believe Ganesha to be a God, the son of Shiva and Parvati… the stories surrounding Ganesha are… well let’s just say unbelievable. But what most people, Hindu’s and non-Hindu’s alike, have overlooked or not understood clearly is that Ganesha, along with all the Hindu Gods are symbolic.

Meaning, they were quite literally designed, each god representing a certain theme, symbolic of various spiritual and personal development principles.

Of all the Gods, the most intriguing has to be Ganesha, the remover of obstacles… but Ganesha was not designed to be prayed to, rather a reminder for what one need to do to overcome challenges in life.

Praying vs. Using the Image of Ganesh as a ‘tool’ to Overcome Obstacles

In the following image, do you know, or can you guess the symbolic meaning of the various features of Ganesha?

Symbology of Ganesha

Here’s just a brief insight into the visual symbology of Ganesha:

To overcome a challenge, problem, or start a new venture you must develop intellect and wisdom (indicated by Ganesha large head). One must develop strength of character (trunk), and intuition (being able to select carefully – tip of trunk). To learn, one must listen more, talk less (large ears, small mouth). Develop focus (small eyes). Ganesha’s calm look/state indicates he has mastered his emotions, even though life is not perfect (broken tusk). He has learned to digest the good and bad that life has to offer (big belly), and does not allow the ‘annoying things in life’ to bother him (small rat by his feet).

As you can see, there is much more to Ganesha than meets the eye!

The symbology of Ganesha extends far beyond the form. The mythological stories, as written in the ancient Puranic scriptures are all symbolic, as is the use of Ganesha in rituals.

REDISCOVER THE SYMBOLIC MEANING OF GANESHA

Unfortunately, over time, the wisdom encoded in the symbolic form of Ganesha has been forgotten. What was once a powerful ‘tool’ of spiritual and personal development has been relegated to gifts, key chains, wall paintings, novelty statues, TV Cartoons, etc.

So while you may not be really discovering Ganesha for the first time, this might be the first time you’re learning about the deeper symbolic significance of Ganesha and how it can be used as a visual tool, to remind you of what you need to do in order to overcome obstacles and challenges in life.

To see a detailed explanation of the symbology of Ganesha and other Hindu Gods, you can download ‘Hindu God Symbology’ app from either the iTunes or Android store.

It’s become common and unfortunately ignorant practice to dismiss when we have been led to believe they are connected to other religions and culture.

The reason I share my interest in Hindu Symbology is not to promote Hinduism as a religion (which I don’t believe it is), nor too convince people to pray to some elephant headed God (because I don’t), it’s simply to help bridge the cultural and knowledge gap.

Within what is commonly referred to as the Hindu Religion or culture, there is a facilitating connection to symbols, some dating back over 10,000 years… and the symbology extends far beyond the idols. Almost every aspect of the Hindu culture from it’s festivals, rituals, temples, historical stories such as the 7000 year Ramayana or 5000 year old Mahabharata are more symbolic that factual. By tapping into the symbolic meaning, cultural barriers and misunderstanding break down to certain degrees.

I invite you to download my app ‘Hindu God Symbology’, and tap into the symbolic wisdom of Ganesha and dozens of other Hindu gods and goddesses.
