The Circle

An ancient symbol that represents Eternity, Energy and Life of all beings

The circle represents the universe, both external and internal. In this image, the centre is brown representing the earth, the Earth Mother and the outer circle is blue, representing the sky, Father Sky.

Each colour represents the Four Directions; yellow symbolises the East, a place of vision and of new beginnings; red represents the South which is a place of trusting and learning; black is the West and represents a place of dreaming and introspection; and white represents the North, a place of wisdom.

Each colour represents the Four Directions as well as colours of people. Through this, we can trace the stages of growth in both the physical sense and emotional development.

In the centre there is a diamond of royal blue colour and this represents the Great Spirit, God, Buddha or Higher Consciousness – the ‘Within’.
