Why Can A Shamanism Symbol Be Anything?

With a New Age shamanism symbol, the modern day shaman can create their own power symbols, but often the designs are based on the traditional ones. Combinations are used: like the spiral combined with the infinity symbol, and a pyramid. Celtic symbols, and animals are often used too. But it’s all about the shaman’s intention the shaman uses to bind and power point for the ritual. This is done for altars or shrines too.

A shamanic symbol is a representation of a particular intention, weather that is to keep energy,  to transmit it, or to get rid of negative energy, and more…  A symbol that is meaningful for the shaman is one that carries her intention. It can be anything in theory…

The chart above shows some Norse and Viking symbols the Asatru symbols. But there are many others from all over the world some with similar intentions attached to them, others that are quite different, depending on the culture: see a great symbol dictionary here.

Generally speaking, the point of a New Age Shamanism Symbol is to use positive intentions to rid yourself of negative blockages or energy. This can be done through traveling to the spirit world to find and bring back your power animal.
