Mongolian Spot Spiritual Meaning

Mongolian spot spiritual meaning

The blue spots on the backs of all Mongolian infants are known worldwide as Mongolian spots. Since ancient times, the Mongols have worshiped the eternal blue sky and regarded this spot as a celestial postage stamp bestowed only on the Mongols.

    What is a Mongolian spot?

    Mongolian spot, also known as congenital dermal melanocytic hyperplasia, is a flat, congenital, benign birthmark with irregularly shaped edges and wavy edges. Mongolian spots vary in size from a small area on the buttocks to a larger area on the back and are present at birth.

    This area usually disappears 3 to 5 years after birth and completely disappears during adolescence. Blue is the most common shade, but it can also be bluish-gray, bluish-black, or dark brown. Pigmented birthmarks, on the other hand, are associated with health risks, whereas Mongolian blue spots are not.

    According to the researchers, Mongolian spots are formed during embryonic development when melanocytes (cells that produce pigment or melanin) persist and form in the deeper layers of the skin. However, the cause of these patches is still unknown in medicine.

    Individuals from East Asia, South Asia, North Asia, and Central Asia, as well as Mongolians, indigenous peoples of Oceania (mainly Micronesians and Polynesians), some African groups, Native Americans, non-European Latin Americans, mixed Caribbean descent and Turks, have this spot.

    Blue spots are present in almost all Mongolians, but other Asians, especially Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese, have blue spots in 50-80% of the population.

    Recent studies on mongolian spot

    A study conducted at several hospitals in Mexico City found that, on average, 51.8% of Mexican babies have Mongolian spots. Additionally, the Mexican Social Security Institute indicates that nearly half of all Mexican infants have Mongolian spots. Indigenous children of Central America were treated narrowly because of Mongolian spots, but progressive groups began to popularize Mongolian spots in the late 1960s.

    Blue spots can also be seen in 5-10% of Caucasian ancestors. It is almost unprecedented in Europe that only 1-10% of the population is counted. But the most surprising figure is that Hungarians make up 22.6% of the total population.

    Perhaps the invasion of Europe by the Mongols' ancestors, the Huns, between 376-476 AD could explain it. According to the German heroic epic "The Song of the Nibelung", composed at the beginning of the 13th century by an anonymous author, Hungary was known as the medieval Kingdom of Hun.

    These spots are most often observed in Central Asia, that is, in Mongolia. So, why are Mongolian sites so popular with North and South American Indians?

    Recent studies have shown that the first waves of immigrants arrived in the Americas across the Bering Strait from Siberia and Central Asia during the last Ice Age, 23,000 years ago. This may explain why most Native American infants have the Mongolian mark.

    So, why does this mark appear on babies of certain African ethnicities, such as Ethiopians or people of full Caucasus ancestry? All anyone can do is hypothesize and make educated assumptions.

    In any case, the majority of individuals who experience this phenomenon see the blue dot as a positive sign and an expression of the blessings of higher powers.

    Mongolian Spot Spiritual Meaning

    Long ago, people thought that cheeks "for happiness" were done by heavenly hands or by descendants of great and majestic ancestors.

    In some cultures, the blue area is considered to be the remnant of a sacred place where the spirits left a baby "in a past life" and was born, stabbed or slapped by the spirit, while in other cultures it is considered a symbol of nobility.

    The Mongols have believed in the protection of divine powers since ancient times. As a result, on the seal of the Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, the words "In the will of eternal heaven" were engraved. The Mongols considered the birth of blue-spotted offspring as a sign of divine protection.

    According to Korean legend, Samshin Halmi, a shaman that Koreans pray for when giving birth, patted the baby on the back so that the baby could be delivered quickly from her mother's womb, causing bruises.

    This sign is also widespread among the Maya of the Yucatan Peninsula, where it is known as Wa, meaning "circle of heaven" in the Mayan language.

    According to Kyrgyz religion, the goddess Umaiene plucks her child's tailbone to keep her child harmless and indicates that she will receive a lifetime guarantee.

    The blue spots are known among the Uyghurs as a sign of Tengri, the heavenly god who also blesses newborn babies. Many Turks believe that the god Tengri or Umai-ene helps the child by stroking the buttocks with his hand when the child takes their first breath. Among the Siberian Yakuts, this function is performed by the goddess Aiyysyt.

    Since the origin of Mongolian spots has not yet been determined, it is likely that several imaginary interpretations of this occurrence are possible. For example, Kazakh scholar Adil Korzabayev argues that "Mongolian spots" evolved as a result of human interactions with extraterrestrial species.


    Mongolian spots are similar to melanin, but a substance with a completely different chemical structure was the cause, a professional dermatologist claimed that he had heard of the traces of an alien for the first time. For the blue color of the skin. Melanin is black if it has the ability to absorb UV rays while protecting the epidermis. Aliens, on the other hand, are shown in blue.
