Every day we interact with objects, places and sensations that affect the way we think and feel. This can be used to the writer's advantage by planting symbols in the reader's path to reinforce a specific message, feeling or idea.
Look at the setting and the character's state of mind, and then think about what you want the reader to see. Is there a descriptive symbol or two that works naturally within the scene to help foreshadow an event or theme, or create insight into the character's emotional plight?
Animals gathering in herds or packs
North Star position
Phases of the moon
Baby birds following their mother
The Food Chain
The Water Cycle
Technology (computers, databases)
Street Light changes
Rows of lockers
Labels, folders, dividers
Grocery store shelves
Line graphs, flow charts, bar graphs
Table of Contents
Help desk/tec support services
Government services (Police, Fire, Rescue)
Government Organizations (Welfare, Unemployment, Social Programs/services)
These are just a few examples of things one might associate with Order/Organization. Some are more powerful than others. A filing cabinet is a strong symbol of organization and likely will not require reinforcement. However, a single name tag may not foreshadow order/organization on its own. Let the story's tone decide if one strong symbol or several smaller ones work the best.
