Sigils, Symbols and Signs of the West Side…

this is, again, part of a larger work i have been involved with over the last six months…

i find providence’s west side district to be an enormously fascinating area for synchronous or even supernatural consideration. i have had countless, deeply meaningful experiences while walking its fringes, its alleys and streets.

the west side has a very remote, dreamlike quality that i find, at times, to be quite startling. i have tried, to varying degrees of success, to capture some of these moments, however, as anyone who is a seeker knows – nothing compares to the visceral beauty of personal, first hand experience.

in a previous post, i tried to DEMONstrate the vitality of spiritual, super and supranatural forms that seem to be lingering in the near shadows of these neighborhoods.

to me, the mesage, in part, is one that speaks of revelation, of ‘seeing’ these incredible beings which hide in plain sight, willing to meet our curious minds halfway between the regions of the unconscious and the unknowable and the latent, everyday reality we all share and contribute to.

the following images are meant to resonate as they will, on and of their own accord.

i will not attempt, at this time, to explain what they mean or do not mean to me, as that would be both quite dangerous and beside the point anyway.

personal meaning is precisely why i travel between both of these worlds. the messages are subjective, yet not meant just for me, but for any and all of us.

they ride the walls all around us, mistaken as token signatures, but, these are not just simple ‘tags’, left by vandals cackling mischeviously into the night…

to me, these are sigils.

these symbols and signs are of a secret language, one that speaks to the experience of our interior worlds…they are of a secret language and one that does not require a reply.

we see these signs and we dont see these signs and THAT is exactly how sigil magik works.

the synchronous meaning inbued within the very DNA of these symbols registers deeply with me…and therein lies the power contained in these sometimes obscure markings.

like cave paintings representing a long lost group of human beings who we will never know or truly understand, these markings, both profound and profane will be left to someday represent our time here.

therefore, i feel compelled to attempt to decipher the vast, evolving meanings that speak of you, me and us all…

perhaps none of these signs will have any subjective meaning to you, or, perhaps, like me, some or all of these powerful symbols will have great, pooling currents of significance.

that is the beauty of anonymous markings left strewn across the urban landscapes we live and die within…they are there to be seen and understood, but only if and when we choose to…

they are there and they are not there.

much like us…

here are a few that mean so much to me…

finally…

here is a sequence of shots that, to me, reveal a ‘watcher’, as i have come to call them.

this watcher was leading me into experiential growth one night, literally showing me the signs and then, it revealed itself to me, as you may or may not see in the following images.

this entire sequence, in objective time, lasted only seconds…but its impact, like itself and its message to me, lingers in my heart and mind as a sacred communication…

if you are willing…

if you have an open mind AND an open heart…

the world itself might choose to speak to you of IT’S own experience…

all you have to do is listen…
