Sacred geometry and spiritual symbols
Sacred Geometry is the foundation of all that is. Everything in nature and humans is based on this geometry. Circles, squares, triangles, and spirals are the basis for all geometry. In sacred geometry, you will also find straight lines (masculine energy) and curved lines (feminine energy).
You don’t always realize it in our daily life, but sacred geometry is around us everywhere we look. Just look at the structure of ice crystals, the heart of a sunflower, or the mandala you are colouring. Even our body cells have geometric shapes. Many of these forms can be seen in various cultures and it even dates from far before our era.
The most famous shapes are the Flower of Life and the Tree of Life. However, there are even more special shapes that are briefly explained below. The best part is that everyone has their own preference, it just depends on which one resonates with you.
Seed of Life
The first spiritual symbol in sacred geometry is the Seed of Life. The Seed of Life is formed from a relationship of 6 circles around one. In fact, 6 circles will always fit exactly around a 7th circle of the same size. Each circle fits into this pattern like a lock and a key, forming a dynamic field of possible geometric relationships that reveal the most fundamental forms of creation.
These 7 circles reflect our chakras, the colours of the rainbow and even scales! It provides a foundation on which to understand the infinite, fractal nature of life.
The Seed of life is a universal symbol of life, a symbol of creation.
It represents a new beginning because you are capable of so much more than you think. Every awareness and every creation arises from a small seed. Present in your core, so it is up to you to develop this further.
Flower of life ~Sacred Geometry
The Flower of life originated from the Seed of life. The Flower of life is the second symbol in sacred geometry.
It represents the energy of unity consciousness, the next state of consciousness towards which humanity is now rapidly evolving. That’s the goal; complete the unit. The geometric shape consists of several evenly spaced, overlapping circles arranged in a flower pattern with a six-fold symmetry like a hexagon.
The Flower of Life has a deep spiritual meaning. The symbol has had significant meaning to many different cultures throughout history. The symbol can be found in manuscripts, temples, and art by cultures around the world.
The symbol is believed to be part of the Akashic Records and the Flower of Life is the blueprint of all creation. The flower of life is thus seen as the visual expression of the unity of all creations, it can be seen as the fundamental form of time and space. The basic form of sacred geometry.
Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is a well-known symbol in the history of mankind. It is the third spiritual symbol in sacred geometry. It emerges in all kinds of cultures. The Tree of Life symbolizes life itself. It stands for vitality, wisdom, protection, redemption and beauty. With its roots firmly in the earth, it has contact with Mother Earth, with the branches it reaches out to the universe.
The Tree of Life stands for connection, with yourself and with the people around you.
All facets of life are represented in the Tree of life, from birth to life in full force. The Tree of Life also gives the Breath of Life. Breath of life is synonymous with Prana, a life force. Just like in nature trees also provide our life force (oxygen).
Sri Yantra ~ Sacred Geometry
The Sri Yantra is made up of sacred geometry and the golden ratio (Phi). It contains nine triangles, they have different sizes and proportions that overlap each other. The power-point (Bindu) is in the middle.
Sri Yantra is one of the most powerful Yantras in the world. The symbolizes the origin of the universe. It is considered the most sacred symbol in many cultures. The geometric structure is particularly complex and contains the golden ratio (Phi). It is the mother of all Yantras and a symbol of manifestation and abundance. Want to decipher the secrets of the universe? Then meditate with the Sri Yantra symbol. It gives you a lot of insights. Sri Yantra is also called Sri Chakra. It contains both feminine and masculine energy.
Torus ~ Sacred Geometry
Viewed from above, the Torus is a sequence of circles. In 3D it has a doughnut shape. The Torus is a reflection of the energy of Mother Earth, Gaia, as well as a reflection of our own energy fields.
A torus consists of a central axis with a Vortex at both ends and a surrounding coherent energy field. Energy flows in one Vortex, through the central axis, out of the other Vortex and then wraps around itself to return to the first incoming Vortex.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, magnetic fields around planets and stars, and entire galaxies themselves are all toroidal (torus) energy systems. An interesting and fascinating symbol in sacred geometry.
Metatron’s cubus ~ Sacred Geometry
Metatron’s cube is based on 13 circles (also called the Fruit of Life) and is seen as the blueprint of the universe. The cube also contains the 5 platonic solids fire, earth, water, air and ether. These forms are the building blocks of everything that exists, including us human beings.
This cube is named after Archangel Metatron.
Metatron opens the gates to consciousness and other dimensions. He also guides highly sensitive New Age children on their path. A special and divine angel, who can help you, especially at this time if you are open to spiritual growth.
He helps you to increase your awareness, recharge your energy reserves, find inner peace and come into energetic balance. The natural balance in yourself is restored and blockages are lifted.
Merkaba, also spelt Merkabah, can literally be translated to light, mind, or body. The Merkaba symbol from sacred geometry is a shape made of 2 intersecting tetrahedra that rotate in opposite directions, creating a three-dimensional energy field. You can activate this movement of light around your own body with practised meditation and breathing techniques.
The Merkaba offers protection and transports your consciousness to higher dimensions. The Merkaba reminds us of the potential power we can exert as we unite our own energies in the pursuit of connection and growth.
Within sacred geometry, the Lotus has a strong connection with the spiritual world.
She is seen as a symbol of the eternal renewal of life. Lotuses symbolize prosperity, beauty, fertility, eternity and eternal youth. Lotuses are also used to represent chakras or the body’s energy centres. Just look at the shape of a chakra, it looks like opening a lotus flower.
The Lotus has a connection with the four elements in it. In the different growth phases, there is a connection with the earth, water, air and fire (sun).
Ohm is the first sound of creation. It stands for inner peace and tranquillity. It balances you. Ohm is not just any sound or vibration, nor is it just a symbol within sacred geometry.
Ohm is everything we see, experience, feel and hear. Ohm is the entire universe. Everything within and outside of our perception is Ohm. It is a mysterious cosmic energy that is the basis of everything that is present on our earth and in the universe.
If you speak or sing Ohm you will experience the universal vibration.
Triquetra ~Sacred Geometry
Finally, in this overview of sacred geometry: the Triquetra. The Triquetra is an ancient Celtic symbol, also called the infinite trinity knot. The symbol contains three elements that are connected, such as spirit-mind-body, earth-air-water, moon-earth-sun, and past-present-future. This symbol also means protection.
