The Yin Yang symbol dates back to ancient China and is known as Taijitu. Its concept of two halves that together complete wholeness is perhaps the most widely known and documented concept within Taoism. The Yin and Yang energies are the starting point for all change. By definition when something is whole it is thought to be complete with no more change occurring. In the concept of Yin and Yang, there are two halves that represent duality but that together form the whole. One is required to truly understand and define the other. For example, without night, we wouldn't have day. It is this never-ending pursuit of balance that cultivates wholeness, oneness, completeness, and ultimately total health.
From the Tao Te Ching:
When people see things as beautiful,
ugliness is created.
When people see things as good,
evil is created.
Being and non-being produce each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.
Because this symbol is so widely used for cultivating harmony and balance, it provides the perfect base for networking crystal energy to support the manifestation of your intentions surrounding balance, change, new beginnings, and completeness or wholeness.
