This Adinkra symbol called “Fihankra”, or “house/compound” is a symbol safety and security. It is the inspiration behind the ‘I am safe’ candle. Typical of Akan (Asante) architecture, the communal housing compound has only one entrance and exit. This ascertains that the community and its people are always aware of who is at home. Although most of us aren’t ‘at home’, we are all part of the symbolic compound/house that our ancestors have built. We are always guarded, watched over, and protected. When feelings of insecurity and danger creeps upon you, remember that you are safe. Your ancestors know who is in and out of your safety net. Trust your intuition and discernment as these are gifts from the ancestors to help us navigate the world.
