Metaphysical meaning of Phrygia (mbd)
Phrygia, phryg'-`i-å (Gk.)--dried; parched; barren; lifeless; stubble; brush.

A district, or province, in Asia Minor. Men from this place heard the Gospel taught in their own language at Pentecost (Acts 2:10). Paul was at first forbidden of Spirit to preach in Asia; therefore he simply passed through Phrygia, but later he taught of Christ there (Acts 16:6; 18:23).

Meta. A dry, barren, fruitless state of thought. The central idea of this realm of the sense consciousness that Phrygia signifies is a belief in lack, lack of vitality, of substance, of strength, of power, and of increase of good (dried, parched, barren, lifeless, stubble, brush).
