The Flower of Life
The flower of life is one of the strongest sacred geometric shapes. It is composed of evenly-spaced, overlapping circles arranged with six-fold symmetry like a hexagon. The perfect form, and ratios of the Flower of Life have been known worldwide for many generations.
The ancient pattern has been found in sites all over the world. It has been found in Ireland, Turkey, England, Israel, Egypt, China, Tibet, Greece, India, and Japan to name only a few. The measurements contained in the flower of life are the same ones found in many aspects of nature.
The perfect measurements, seen as the flawless language of perception and shape have since been used in the construction of temples and other buildings throughout history. Sacred geometry is often referred to as “the Math of God” since the measurements and ratios found in the shapes, are also repeated throughout conscious creation.
Along with being proportionately sound, the Flower of Life design has been accredited with assisting the awareness/RE-membrance process of the evolution of conscious beings. Visual Art, like music is immensely capable of communicating frequencies and ideas in seconds that pages of words don’t describe to a satisfactory level.
When worn, drawn, or observed during meditation, the venerated Patterns have been accredited with bestowing a sense of unity, and understanding in the initiate. This property can be accredited to not only the vast amounts of energy the shape has collected throughout the ages, but also to the perfect visual harmonies contained within.
The most common form of the ‘Flower of Life’ is hexagonal pattern where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter, It is made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial arcs, enclosed by a large circle.
The Flower of Life is akin to an actual flower in more ways than appearance and name. It closely resembles the cycle of a fruit tree (tree to flower to fruit to seed and back to a tree) The natural process is paralleled by the geometries of creation. (true story O.o)
The Seed of Life
The Seed of life is composed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and shapes which are a basic component of the Flower of Life’s design. The Seed of Life is directly credited by some to parallel the seven days of creation from the Torah/Bible. The Six circles can represent a single day in creation. With the placing of the sixth circle, a seventh one is magnificently created making an additional day of circling unnecessary. This property stays true to the story found in Genesis (2:2 By the seventh day God (spirit) had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.)
The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is generally recognized from the Kabbalah, but the origin of this shape cannot be accredited to any one demographic. It is a pattern that is intimately part of nature and cannot be claimed (solely) by any culture. As stated above, the geometry mirrors the relationship of an actual tree. This means that the Seed of Life contains the tree of life. There is another version of Tree of Life that contains twelve components which allows it to fit perfectly within the greater Flower of Life.
The Fruit of Life
The Fruit of Life is composed of 13 circles taken from the Flower of Life design. It has been called ‘the blueprint of the universe’, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure, life form, and everything in existence.
As stated before, the Flower of Life and the shapes produced from it are derived from or directly related to the structures found in nature. These include the geometry and numerology-inspired mysticism of the Pythagorean thinkers and the alchemists, as well as fractal geometry discovered through science.
Bees construct their hexagonal cells, mathematical concepts like the golden ratio, and the Fibonacci sequence can also be found in flowers, snowflakes, galaxies, the orbit of planets, and many other places. The ratios can even be found in the measurement of sound waves.
These blueprints are also present in Stonehenge and other acclaimed ‘Sacred sites’. In fact, if one were to take a flower of life and superimpose it over a globe of the same size, the individual would find that many of the points co respond with Sacred Sites.
This is what Jeshua says
So what does this all mean? What is the significance of wearing/possessing depictions of sacred geometry? Well to answer that, I ask you to bring your attention to any number of lucky/religious symbols. We live in a world shaped by our expectation/acceptance of source energy.
Symbols like the Celtic knot, the cross, the manji, and many others have special resonance with the individual. This resonance is due partially to the relationship of the individual with the symbolism, and partially to the significance of the shapes to consciousness as a whole.
Certain symbols cease to be relevant outside conventional perspective, but you’ll find that some of the most prominent spiritual symbols derive from Sacred Geometry. Two examples would be the star tetrahedron (star or David) and the pentagram, which can both be constructed out of the flower of life.
It is widely apparent that these two symbols are significant, from the seemingly ageless history and various uses for the symbols. The pentagram has been used for, magic and Wicca, Pythagorean sects, and (yes) even Christianity. The Star Tetrahedron also known as Metatron’s cube also makes an appearance in the Flower of Life. The Star of David or Star Tetrahedron can also be correlated to the Merkabah energy field.
There is something inexplicably magnetic about such shapes. The significance begins to make a bit more sense when we remember that these same patterns, or at least the originators of the patterns appear ALL THROUGHOUT CREATION, not just in the world of the humans. The Bees, the ice, the molecules, the cells, the plants, and even the stars are included. The association with the very blueprints of the universe is an auspicious one.
Now we introduce another element- Mediums (An intervening substance through which something else is transmitted or carried on). Also known as sacred objects. In conscious history, objects have been crafted out of just about everything. Most prominently stone, wood, metal, and glass stand out in the human experience. Crystals are also significant, but I am lumping those in with stone for now.
The above mentioned materials are already hallmark in the building of not only constructs, but once again symbols, talismans, charms etc. So what happens when one combines the two elements. When we are no longer only drawing the Flower of life, but instead recreating it and it’s components out of venerated materials such as crystal, or metal, or glass?
Earlier It was mentioned that people have experienced profound changes (both mental and physical) from their association with Sacred Geometry: wearing a shirt or a hat with the flower of life, having pictures to look at, pendants to wear etc.. A strong case can be made that the Flower of Life and resulting patterns greatly impact the human experience.
Since threes are auspicious, let us make one final addition. If we have a flower of life design constructed out of one of the venerated materials- this is already a very powerful item using our logic from before. The question is what happens when the medium is introduced to the light of the sun? What happens when the Flower of Life pattern is constructed out of Dichroic glass and used to filter/reflect the very sunlight which sustains and illuminates our world…? (cliff hanger)
