The Circum Point / Circum Punctum symbolizes Consciousness.

The circled dot, circumpunct, or circle with a point at its centre is an ancient symbol.

“Consciousness - First of all, we have this thing called consciousness. We symbolize it with the circumpunct or the dotted circle. This is as symbol for consciousness. This is you.

The dot in the middle connotates Source, the I Am-ness, your origins.

The circle on the outside represents the expansion that you have done of your soul through all the experiences and all the lifetimes. Very simple.”

(Excerpt from Adamus’ Abundance Clinic - store.crimsoncircle.com)
