Have you ever wondered why we are so fascinated by sacred geometry? Sacred geometry is used in sacred spaces and in artwork such as mandalas, architecture, sand paintings, and shamanic medicine wheels. By studying the nature of these patterns, forms, and connections, insight may be gained into the mysteries and the laws of the Universe. Read on to find out more about the fascinating topics of sacred geometry.
Sacred geometry is ubiquitous in nature. The ancient Christians, Hindus, Greeks, and Egyptians all recognized that certain patterns or geometric shapes are repeated throughout nature. These shapes are also represented by various numbers, mathematical formulas and specific symbols that the ancients believed were the building blocks for everything in the universe.
Modern science has also observed sacred geometry in our bodies and in the details of nature. Our microscopes see the double spiral of DNA and sacred geometry in molecular and crystalline structures. Sacred geometry and fractal geometry have benefitted from modern computer technology. Patterns like the Flower of Life, Vesica Pisces, and Metatron’s Cube have in recent decades become popular art and culture.
Also, the knowledge and application of sacred geometry and mathematics have been used to create many great monuments and historical buildings. These include Stonehenge, the Pyramid of Khufu at Giza, the Greek Parthenon, and many Mayan and Incan temples in Central and South America. Today, sacred geometry is also found in the structure of music, circuits of light, and in cosmology.
Throughout history, people in all cultures of the world have witnessed the awe and splendour of the natural world. The true power and magic of sacred geometry lie in its use by Mother Nature. Our ancestors had the desire to emulate nature in homage to their lands and ancestors, and their gods. People also believed that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics, and proportion have sacred or arcane power. Some, like the ancient Egyptians, explored the connection between sacred geometry, cosmic energy, and third eye activation.
Ancient cultures used sacred geometry in the building of temples, mosques, monuments, and churches. They often created sacred spaces and buildings with sacred geometry patterns that resonate with and enhance spiritual energy and be closer to divinity. Tibetan Buddhist Monks used sacred geometry to create beautiful mandalas and architects used tiling patterns with sacred geometry in mosque and cathedral design. Leonardo Da Vinci used the divine proportions of sacred geometry to create religious art, architecture, iconography, and calligraphy.
Sacred Geometry is believed to be a picture of the patterns that exist around and through all things. It often contains spiritual symbols and structures representing all of the interactions between space, time, and form. There is an original pattern or existence. This is known as the Great Design or divine blueprint for all of existence. Everything is sacred because we are all living together in this pattern or field of life which is woven into the fabric of space and time. Sacred geometry defines our environment and physics, for the game of life.
Over 2500 years ago the Greek mystery schools showed that there are only five perfect three-dimensional forms known as the platonic solids. They saw that these formed the foundation of everything in our physical world, the template from which all life springs. These are the tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. More recently we discovered that in four dimensions there are six analogues or polytopes of the Platonic solids. There are only three analogues of the tetrahedron, cube, and octahedron at five or more dimensions.
The ancients also knew that sacred geometry contained codes for unlocking and exploring your own inner realm. They saw the experience of sacred geometry as essential to the education of your soul. When you view and contemplate the geometry you are looking directly at the love and wisdom behind the inner workings of creation.
One of the most famous sacred geometry patterns is the Flower of Life. This is the modern name for a pattern of multiple overlapping circles that are spaced evenly. They are arranged to form a pattern the looks like a flower with six sides. The centre of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
The Flower of Life contains is believed to depict the original form of space and time. It is a pattern of the origin of the creation of the universe and an expression of how life weaves through all sentient beings. The Flower of Life is like a code that generates nature based on the laws of physics. It acts like a living Akashic Record for the diversity of all living things evolving in the backdrop of basic physical, chemical, and biological processes all evolving and interacting in time.
There are many spiritual beliefs associated with the Flower of Life. Within Metatron’s Cube are the five Platonic Solids. These are derived from the Flower of Life pattern. From the Flower of Life is the Tree of Life. This is an important symbol of sacred geometry in many cultures including the teachings of the Kabbalah. The Kabbalah is a spiritual technology that works specifically with the Tree of Life and the technology of ascension.
The stages of geometry that construct the Seed of Life represent the seven days of Creation according to Drunvalo Melchizedek. During these seven days are the phases of the formation of matter from the ether. This is when the living force of creation created the universe from nothing and the universe went through distinct stages condensation. Each ‘day’ maybe billions of years of our time or shorter than our days are today. In these early stages of creation are seen the Vesica Piscis. This represents the split of unity to duality. Also seen are the interlocking Borromean rings representing the Holy Trinity.
Sacred Geometry has the power to open up a new awareness of the world for you. When you meditate on sacred geometry, it acts like a key which unlocks and opens up portals to other realities. High vibrational sacred geometry opens up the doors of perception. A door opens up in your third eye and you see things more clearly.
When your third eye becomes activated, it acts as a lens to focus your awareness of geometry, light codes, and channelled information. Your third eye opens up more and more when you continue to work with sacred geometry, spirit guides, and divine sound and light frequencies.
There are many ways to use sacred geometry. It assists with your meditation and spiritual awakening. Focus on the mind in your mind’s eye, at physically at your third eye, heart, solar plexus, crown, or any chakra. Then empty your mind, let go, and sense what arises. in that area of your body.
Sacred geometry allows you to gain a greater appreciation of nature and the universe and it enhances your 3-D thinking. Sacred geometric patterns will improve your design and 3-D skills. This is very useful if you work in graphic design, 3D graphics, and movie production. You can also connect with geometry and remind yourself to meditate by decorating your home with geometry.
Use sacred geometry exercises your whole brain in different ways. It helps you to visualise in 3D, 4D, and higher-dimensional forms. Geometry engages both sides of your brain and helps them to resonate together and this boosts your perception and effectiveness in life.
You will also improve your spatial understanding and visual ability with sacred geometry. Visualize 3-dimensional shapes and dimensions to help with your projects. You will develop the ability to imagine more clearly when planning a house renovation, determining what size of a car to buy, or when laying out a new garden.
You can create your own sacred geometry with a sharp pencil, paper, ruler, protractor, and compass. You can create a simple grid by joining 5 or 6 points around a circle. Measure the angles with your protractor (60 degrees for 6 sides, 72 for 5 sides) and join the lines up inside the circle. Or use one of the colouring books and trace the main lines. Then measure the angles to get a feel for the work. The trick is to allow for mistakes when drawing in pencil and go over with pen or paint later.
If you prefer the digital route, a good start is Adobe Photoshop which allows you to do virtually anything if you have enough time and patience. There are great tools online that you can try or buy including Kaleider and OmniGeometry. Visionary art and sacred geometry techniques and software will be explored in more depth in a future article.
