But Really… What IS Sacred Geometry?

 

The first time I discovered sacred geometry was close to a decade ago in Bali. It was Ubud actually – which is the spiritual center of Bali {sidenote: absolutely magical if you haven’t been there, go ahead and add that to your wanderlust list now}. I stumbled into the cooooolest looking shop and there were indescribably beautiful geometric patterns and formations everywhere: On art, on jewelry, on the walls, and even tattooed on the arms of the bright eyed shopkeeper. I didn’t know what it meant…but I knew it was powerful. Very powerful. I I bought a 3D sacred geometry ring to complete my soul searching trip and bring back home with me.

Have you been seeing sacred geometry pop up everywhere as well lately? It seems as though the time has come for sacred geometry to intersect with yogis and spiritual seekers around the world, to deepen their understanding and practices of the mystical.

Maybe you watched our video , and were intrigued by the pretty shapes, but then your phone dinged, your dog barked at air, and your kettle boiled… tea time!  And then you were lost down the rabbit hole of emails and searches for the ever elusive squirrel of the dogs imagination, still not really understanding what all this Sacred Geo stuff is all about.

So, here is our attempt at the most simple and thorough explanation of that which cannot fully be explained 😉  We will focus on 3 foundational patterns: The Flower of Life, The Seed of Life and the Sri Yantra. There is sooooo much sacred geometry to discover and study but these are the most prevalent and our faves.

It’s really very simple once you strip it down to the basics.  Math is a powerful thing people, it holds the key to literally everything in nature. By studying a simple flower, you can find the mathematical equation in its form and link it back to creation.  It’s kinda mind blowing

The Flower of Life is the holy grail of Sacred Geo.  Every pattern of creation can be found in here, from the simple dot to Metatrons Cube.  Just look at the beauty that’s created when the Universe is in harmony, that’s what the Flower of Life represents. It has provided deep spiritual meanings, and even some forms of enlightenment to many who have studied it, from the ancient Egyptians to DaVinci

The Seed of Life is The Beginning.  The basis of the Flower of Life, it is the relationship of six circles perfectly forming around one, containing all the fundamental shapes of Creation. Everything starts with these 7 circles.  Think about it; 7 days of the week, 7 days of creation, 7 colors in a rainbow, 7 notes on a scale, 7 chakras… we could go on.  (How expanded is your mind right now?)

The Sri Yantra, with it’s 9 interlocking triangles, is a spiritual AF shape representing the union of the divine man and woman. The point where the triangles meet in the center is considered to be the connection between the physical and spiritual worlds.The 7 circuits of the Yantra (paths around) are also linked to our chakras.  I love using it as my inner tuning fork during meditation, after learning it many believe it is the geometrical representation of the most sacred sounds on earth, like AUM.

This is  a small but mighty sampling of the hundreds of Sacred Geometry shapes Mother Universe has created for us.  From the smallest cell, to the largest galaxy, you really can find these patterns in all living things. Sacred Geometry at it’s most basic level really represents oneness. It is a daily reminder to look deeper, don’t just look straight ahead, sometimes you need to look up and down and backwards to see the whole picture.
