The lemniscate is the number eight (8) on its side (∞). Most see this as the infinity symbol. This symbol has something to do with the infinite, but not in the way that most people think. I’m always telling people they are infinite and need to realize their power, but this symbol has more to do with the communication with the infinite or your higher self. I have also seen where religions say this is the symbol of the devil and conspiracy buffs say it is an illuminati symbol. Time to illuminate.
Mathematicians like Wallis, Booth, Bernoulli, and Gerono have all came up with equations to try to understand this symbol. Most think the lemniscate comes from these mathematicians who used the Latin word ‘lemniscatus’, which means ribbon, to describe the symbol. They are basically just measuring the curvature of energy and to them it looked like a ribbon. There is lots of confusion when it comes to this symbol. Most people think it has to do with infinity because the lemniscate is something that keeps going and doesn’t come to an end. So people go get an infinity tattoo for their endless love for each other and the endless love ends in about 6 months. I know some of you will tell me it has to do with being immeasurable and unexplored. Well it is definitely unexplored for most and as you will see it probably is immeasurable.
The lemniscate or infinity symbol comes from the number eight(8). Eight is a symbol of balance and eternity. To many ancient cultures and religions the number eight was very important. In ancient Egypt, eight was the number of cosmic order. To Pythagoras eight was a symbol of harmony. Indeed, this symbol has to do with your cosmic balance and harmony. What makes this symbol so special being on it’s side? A hint to the answer comes from Hinduism with the god Vishnu and his infinite serpent Ananta. Ananta in Sanskrit means ‘infinity’. This snake recoiled on itself can recall the shape of the infinity symbol and is a symbol for fertility, eternity and universal knowledge. If you are familiar with my work, you know that the serpent has to do with the feminine, wisdom, thoughts and the mind. Lets get on to the true meaning of this symbol.
The number eight (8) symbolizes you being in touch with your higher self. You get communication from your higher self and you may be able to communicate back, but you are never on the same plane as your higher self. You feel that the communication is separate from you. Few people in this world reach this point. Most of the people who reach this point think it is a bearded man, relative or something else outside of themselves communicating with them. This world is set up for you not to realize the power you have. This is what R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz has said about this:
“Man is perfect at his origin, a divine being who has degenerated into what we are”.
As long as you see these messages coming from something separate from you, the power will stall. You have to realize you are it. Just like you are beating your heart and making all your organs work at the exact time and exact way they need to, you are causing the sun to shine or the rain to fall. You are your higher self, you are the infinite. Once you realize this, the eight rolls on it’s side and becomes the lemniscate. The lemniscate represents not only you being in touch with higher self , but being on same plane. Your not only able to get communication you give communication back. You learn from your higher self and your higher self learns from you.
Your are greater by knowing your higher self and your higher self is greater by knowing you. Your higher self and you are equal. Your higher self contains all wisdom, intuition or knowingness. There is no division of ourselves and the universe. Let your intuition lead you. She is never wrong. Becoming doesn’t terminate, it is infinite.
Even fewer real reach this point of awareness. I believe this is what the pyramids all over the world symbolized. This is not a conspiracy power thing where few rule the many. No one rules you! You rule yourself! It is your climb to the top. Just remember there are many paths to the top, but at the top the view is the same. I showed in my Magic post there is no right way. That is the beauty of magic. Balance is the key, that is why it is on it’s side. This power that is the infinite or your higher self is a feminine power and that is why this inscription about Isis is on the Temple of Neith at Sais:
“I am all that ever has been, and is, and shall ever be, and my robe no mortal has yet uncovered”.
You may not be able to fully uncover Isis, but you can get a few peeks under her robe. Most people get scared at these peeks, but I call them the cosmic orgasm.
