The Flower of Life: Meaning According to Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry is a belief in which geometric symbols explain the structure of the universe. According to the theory, the working of the universe reveals itself in geometric shapes. We are therefore, just a part of a large geometric pattern, and the Flower of Life lets us take a peek at this mysterious pattern.

At the heart of the Flower of Life pattern, lies the Seed of Life, which is 7 overlapping circles attached at a central point. These seven circles form a grid pattern that is great for energy work. Lay your Golden Triangle Gemstones over it and see what happens! If you repeat the Seed of Life pattern the Flower of Life emerges. The flower is often depicted flat, but when expanded into 3-D, the 5 platonic solids can be found within it. These naturally occurring shapes are important to science today, yet have been found in Sacred Geometry for thousands of years!

Creation and the Flower of Life

These days, the New Age movements have largely adopted the Flower of Life, but the symbol is actually thousands of years old and can be found in many cultures and religions. For example the Flower of Life appears in the Egyptian temple of Osiris in Abydos, 1,300 BCE. From Iraq’s palace of King Ashurbanipal to China’s Forbidden City, the Flower of Life decorates important sites all over the world. Even within Judeo Christian traditions the Seed of Life at the Flower’s heart connects to the Seven Days of Creation. Believers see the seed’s expanding into the Flower as a symbol of God creating an expansive, but connected universe.
