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

What is a Symbala?

October 1st, 2009


Resonating with symmetry and color, a Symbala is a mandala or magic form representing wholeness or unity. Each one is created from an intuitive integration of Symbols, Golden Proportion Geometry, Numbers and Color inspired by the energies of an individual, an event, a concept or an attuning intention. Read more about this energy interconnection and the transformation possibilities evoked. Here is more about Golden Proportion Geometry and Symbalas, as well.

I have been evolving this attuning art form since 1993. I draw with a mouse instead of a paintbrush and spend many hours of focused drawing time for each Symbala before the proofing, then the printing. Setting the stage for this creation process involves calling in my ‘Creative Vortex Committee’ for guidance and then beginning with intention and childlike joy – the joy of embarking on a new adventure and of doing what I love. The results are compelling and do not require an interpretation to be appreciated.

Connection with a Symbala takes place on a feeling level, beyond thought and words. When your attention focuses on a Symbala, you are no longer restricted to the habits of left-brain analysis and logic. Art belongs to the right brain ‚Äď the world of shapes, colors, overviews and intuition — you can use it to tap into your innate knowingness. And that knowingness can instantly find new ideas, new understandings and powerful insights. It is the gateway to all possibility; a vibrational portal to other dimensions.

My path is to create focal point lenses (Symbalas) to stimulate and facilitate co-creative processes – attuning, manifesting, transformation, etc. In addition, use them as focal points for contemplation and meditation bringing relaxation, balance and centering. They work equally well as an uplifting piece of art in your surroundings, fulfilling Feng Shui recommendations of the value of art in the environment reflecting and inspiring the owner.

For those interested in the evolution and impact of Sacred Geometry, I recommend this informative youtube presentation.

Symbalas provide poetry and music for the eyes and a feast for the soul. Each Symbala is a focal point which can uplift and bring balance. The senses are immersed and energy is renewed. The experience can bring insight, transformation and a more conscious, centered and creative life.

“A Personal Symbala is such a rare treasure to give to your being. It helps me embrace who I am, my purpose, and the inevitable changes in my life. It is my reflection and my inspiration. Lahrinda‚Äôs work is a gift to humanity, help spread it. Help heal the world.”

In love and light,
