The winged heart
Thousands of years ago this was the symbol for divine love:
Today we draw a winged heart:
The origins of this pattern are lost to time, however it remains one of the most popular designs in history. Even today it inspires corporate logos around the world:
Humans have seven chakras and the middle one (Anahata) is the heart—our musical centre. When we play the C major scale on the piano, this fourth note (F) is known as a diatonic semitone (the balance point). However as we continue up the scale, the eighth (C) signals another semitone at the start of the new octave. This wavelength ratio of 1.33:1 between semitones then, marks the steps on the stairway to heaven.
Cosmic love is red because it corresponds with our eighth chakra which is also the first chakra of our higher selves. In the image above, the Egyptian god Horus has a red sphere above his head (cosmic love) but wears a green vest (human love). In line with this, we remain the only species in the universe that can harmonise our “high” heart with our “low” heart:
The rearing snakes emerging from the disc (at top) represent twin flames—a soul that must split in two in order to return to physicality. This “twin soul” is a person who you feel connected to not just on a physical and emotional level, but also on a spiritual level.
The heart shape above is formed from two fibonacci spirals that can also be drawn as twin snakes facing each other. The serpents of the caduceus represent duality and the eventual unification of polar opposites. As such, they speak of the balance required to strike harmony:
This expression invites us to unify ourselves even as we search for our soul mates.
