What is a Symbala? The Symbala World of Lahrinda Eileen Lahrinda's Personal Symbala

Amping Up

March 16th, 2018


Yesterday the sun was shining over our little Beverly Lake, a gentle wind blowing and the temperature got up to 70 degrees, a very big deal in the Puget Sound area this time of year. Everyone was dressed and yearning for Spring! I knew from the forecast that it wouldn’t last, but when I woke up this morning to the return of the gray with rain eminent, I knew it was time to release some alternate vitality. Whether it is crazy-making news or crazy weather, there are lots of reasons to have a balanced core stability from which to perceive the world we’re creating.

I have devoted my Symbala art to the maintenance and expansion of that very core of our being. Symbalas are a way to remind ourselves of the soothing, yet inspirational qualities of beauty and symmetry with a visceral connection to the empowering qualities of Sacred Geometry.

It may not be gray and rainy in your outer vicinity, but inwardly you may be needing an energetic pick-me-up, so try this newest Symbala offering and smile…

This is the sequence I recently experienced and would like to share with you:  first I drew this Symbala, then after living with it for a day or two, I named it; ever since I have been contemplating its implications both universally and personally.

You may notice it has a 9-base geometry.  Nines have a symbolic reputation relating to ending or completion, but mathematically and geometrically nines represent mystical qualities.  Then the name that came through.  ‘Culmination’ has similar meanings of being the highest or zenith.  So where does one go from there?

I began with how does it make me feel?  It makes me feel happy, energized, hopeful!  It did not take me to the top of a mountain where the only place to go from there is down; unless, of course, you are a bird.  Then I saw it right in the Symbala, the tops of the 9 peaks had pink wings of ascension on either side.  Being the artist, I also knew that the center of this Symbala is made up of layers of overlapping hearts.  It’s hard to see, but surely can be felt.  Also, when one is talking about the highest or lowest of anything, it’s good to remember that these are relative terms and depend upon whether one is standing in a polarized world or a multi-dimensional universe.  Finally, when something is completed or ends, is it not time to celebrate new beginnings?

Thoughts and a Symbala for the New Year!

January 1st, 2018

Evolving Beingness

Today is the first day of 2018, a good time to take stock of the year’s journey and put forth desires for expanding our evolutionary path.  A large factor in my artist’s path has been to listen and trust the inner/cosmic guidance I receive as energy and nudges that I translate into the Symbala forms.  Sometimes these nudges are a wake-up call for me and not about the art.  Sometimes they are not at all subtle.

Here’s a nudge I got right before the New Year and shows how some of us need firm guidance to pay attention and shift some stuckness!  I made a day trip to see friends for a holiday visit which included going out to lunch.  When we got back to the house, I was sauntering up the straight, flat walkway talking with one of the friends slightly behind me.  The next thing I knew, I was in a slow-motion movie starring me doing an inexplicable pratt-fall.  Arms flailing, gravity grabbed me and flung me off the walk and onto the grass, landing flat on my back with arms flung wide like a snow angel, without the snow!  I was stunned and flabbergasted and then, I started laughing – couldn’t stop.  When they finally got me on my feet and into the house, I checked to be sure everything was where it was supposed to be and then we sat around talking.  They talked, I was thinking… what had I been talking about when this cosmic joke took place?  The friend had asked me how much my newest Symbala project would cost when it was finished, so he could buy it.  I hadn’t given him a price because I didn’t know what it would be yet.  I threw some cost figures at him and had just said before the fall, ‘and tack on $5 for my efforts’!  Wham!!  I was sort of joking, but, once again my old pattern of not valuing myself and what I do was in there.  Wow!  I got the message (symbolically) loud and clear this time.  If you don’t value yourself, you fall flat; thanks, my unseen friends.

So as you ponder your desires for the New Year, remembering to value yourself is top of the list or life won’t sparkle like champagne, it will be flat like yesterday’s soda.

For more inspiration here is a Symbala to contemplate what miracles we each are and some words of wisdom from Abraham.

‘Ask, and it is given’ means that whether you are a full blossoming genius human, or whether you are the one-celled amoeba in the ocean, or a cell in one of your bodies, when it is concluded that something else is preferred (no matter how developed the consciousness is) every time a preference is noted, Nonphysical Energy rushes forth to answer it. It is the promise of our evolving beingness.”  ~ Abraham

With bright good wishes, Happy New Year!   Don’t forget to visit my Zazzle Store where you will find Evolving Beingness gracing many products.

Holidays with Abundance

December 20th, 2017

Summoning Life Force

‘No man is an island’ is true on so many levels, even for those of us who don’t listen to the news in our comfortable caves.  Hiding is not possible when you understand that all things are interconnected.  So how can we be of help when the world rocks and we feel the ground shake?  Knowing that everything I create has impact and connection, I do and feel the things that keep me in balance, creative, healthy and happy.  I appreciate each moment and …

“As you conclude a new desire, you summon Life Force forward into this leading edge experience. And whether you are allowing it to flow through you or not, All-That-Is benefits from that.”  ~ Abraham

I am looking forward to a New Year that will be stimulating, abundant and full of new opportunities to enjoy life!  Really?  Yes, I feel that happy!  Join me and here is a focusing tool to support you in your life creations.

Summoning Life Force glows on many Symbala products (card, poster, magnet and medallion, etc.) in my Zazzle Store.  Don’t forget to check out the 8th Edition of the yearly Symbala Calendar, too.  The holidays are looming.
