For what it's worth and if it matters, your threading through dangerous waters. The slanted N's are an esoteric symbol, and the words, "As Above As Below" are also for the esoteric. There are a few different perspectives on this saying and sources. One source is to do with the end of time and the coming Messiah, which isn't dangerous, but you still must be careful.

But the other is a number of philosophies maintaining that a knowledge of God could be achieved through spiritual ecstasy, direct intuition, or special individual relations, especially the movement founded in 1875 as the Theosophical Society by Helena Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott. This one is of an occult nature, and is related to Freemasonry, Albert Pike, Manly Palmer Hall, Francis Bacon, Alice Bailey, Aleister Crowley this last one being one of the most scary and satanic man in history.

You can google any name you want and choose from the many sites to give you info on all these people. You will find sites that go for these types, and you will find those that are against. It is to your own discretion what you choose to go with. I hope you choose wisely.

It first struck me as DNA strands which could be taken as symbolizing life. Life - as above (heaven/ the hereafter) so below (here). Maybe there's a lot more you need to remember from when you were in the coma. Maybe there is someone you lost and you need a confirmation that they are still 'alive' and you got one when you were out.

Many of the Scots blood have Germanic/Nordic ties (unless your more Pictish). Remember, the north tribes visited Scotland fairly frequently. That may be the blood tie.

A new perspective with Much Hope of Helping you Lady! I do a little treasure hunting and a friend of mine told me that, on some treasure sites, at the base of mountains or hills, there are either 2 rocks in the shape of triangles or 1 rock with 2 triangles scratched on it,, these triangles will have 1 of them pointing down and the other will be pointing up. This is called WHAT IS ABOVE IS BELOW AND WHAT IS BELOW IS ABOVE in treasure hunting. This rock/sign at the base has all of the information as to what is located on that side of the hill/mountain, mines, tunnels, veins, etc. In treasure hunting, one is seeking the hearts desire, which should be Christ the Treasure! Hope this might help in some way! Peace to All!

This symbol has many layers of meaning, and it is for you to discover, no one can really say except to guide.

"As Above, so Below" is well known in the Occult community as the Doctrine of Correspondences. In the Emerald Tablet Rubric 2 it reads (this is from memory) : "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below to accomplish the Miracles of the One Thing and just as all have come from this One Thing through Meditation of One Mind, so do all created things originate from this One Thing through Transformation."

The Mystery deepens we see and that is a calling to the Quest. Search, Find. It is within you. And do so "Gently, and with Great Ingenuity". This process is the work of a life time and even with its ups and downs, it the joy of ages and beyond. :-)

Bring the symbol upright and you have the Tree of life itself in Caducceus form. As you can see, this symbol is Thrice in nature. On the Rod of Hermes, there are two serpents intertwined thrice on the rod (three pillars of the Tree, the three levels of Reality). I think if you want to get hot and heavy into this, you may want to explore Hermeticism and Alchemy and see where that takes you but most importantly, go where the Spirit guides you.

Makes me think of that movie The Fountain, where the man is by the tree and the woman says "Finish it" and he says, "I don't know how it ends," and she says, "You do, you will."

Edit: I'd like to add I like the Runic exploration here. GEBO is very fitting and is worth contemplating, including if you explore what possiable words begin with the word G. Very fitting.

1984, Clarksville , Tn. I saw this same symbol cut into trees and on stone pillars in the woods above the Cumberland river. I was in the Army and I have not heard those words or seen that symbol since. I remembered it and had to respond. It is interesting in that at that time I hang around some guys whom I wouldn't now. It was not a pleasant experience, nor one I would repeat.

I wanted to say the same. I am from a Scottish clan, but through research found that one of my great-grandfathers (like 5 or so times great) was an earl of some sort, and through him, I found relations in Iceland and the Nordic regions. I have a great respect for the Norse pagan religions and have always felt a certain kinship with them.

Not sure what the XXX means, but for " AS ABOVE SO BELOW" this is used in freemasonry etc. here's some information on the matter "AS ABOVE SO BELOW"

Not sure of your symbol however the saying "as above so below" is from the ancient wisdom. It means everything below corresponds to the the higher realms, from the highest to the lowest there is a great correspondence. While not a perfect correspondence they do so enough that we can learn a lot about the higher realms by what happens in our current sphere of existence. Couple books I recommend are A Treatise on White Magic - Alice A Bailey, and The Immortal - JJ Dewey The first is pretty heavy reading, The second is set in story form so much easier to read but still teaches some heavy principles.

I am sorry I can not contribute except to say this has been absolutley fascinating to read. I have pretty much zero knowledge of this topic, yet I can see there is some real help being dealt out here and in the end that's what this site and this world should be about. Keep it up and I wish the best of luck to you all in finding what you are looking for. Cheers.

I had an NDE a few years back, and every since then I have been seeing this symbol. I also got the words, "As above, so below". Hence, my signature.



When I read "As above, so below", the first thing I that came to me was the Biblical passage from Matthew 6:10, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven." This comes from the message that Jesus gave us all on what to pray when we pray. In context of the Matthew 6 passage, Jesus said,

"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

In the message and associated symbol, you should really first ask the Living Lord Jesus what it means. I can tell you what He told me about your encounter and the associated symbol but, you should seek God first and ask him. He loves you and He is the God who will answer you so ask God Jesus, "What does this experience and symbol mean? What am I supposed to learn from all of this?" Give me discernment to know if this is of you." Don't ever forget that even Satan can appear as an angel of light and that he roams around like a lion seeking whom he can devour. This is why you must seek and obey God first before anyone or anything else for your answers. He is your source. Not the entities your NDE or anyone on this forum. Don't forget what God tells you in Proverbs 24:3-4, "By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

Blessings to you in your walk with Jesus and the filling of his beautiful treasures in your life. Jesus hasn't given up on you and he loves you beyond measure. Seek him first.

It reminds me of the three crosses when Jesus was crucified. If my understanding is correct, they
were x shaped unlike the standard christian cross symbols.

It looks like a wave function. Like the sine and cosine functions overlapped on top of each other (one is "above" when the other is "below") except those would be smooth like semi-circles whereas this symbol is more linear.

I would try to give you some kind of layman Jungian analysis, but the symbol can be associated with so many different things that I wouldn't even know where to start. If it's culture-specific like others have suggested then my ignorance of any given culture would limit my analysis too.

I have a symbol too, but I've always been hesitant to share it. It's a pattern that's been with me since i can remember. It has sequence and pattern and like the Op's symbol it is the same above as it is below. Numbers and rhythm and geometry come across as significant with this symbol and seem to be related to the definition (structure) of the symbol.
