Sacred geometry is a very deep and profound topic. Many have spent a lifetime studying just one aspect or shape to understand all of the implications and insights it can offer. While I will not pretend to know more than an introductory knowledge of this topic, I’d like to introduce the benefits of studying this ancient art to those that have never heard of it.
What is Sacred geometry?
In Short a model of all that is! Both in the physical and non physical realms. Many use it as a meditation tool due its symbolic expression of how life and the physical reality is a repeated pattern. You may have heard the expression called the circle of life. A circle is of course a geometric shape. If this circle is repeated at precise intervals, many forms can be created! For instance; a cell is circular, once it splits and begins to split again and again we get everything from an amoeba to a baby girl or boy depending on the pattern and how it is structured. If you look around your surroundings you’ll find circles squares and triangles are everywhere!
So why study Sacred Geometry? What benefit would it have to my life to understand how everything is made up of geometric shapes? So what!? How could a bunch of shapes have such deep implications to life, both physically and spiritually?
To best answer that question please take 10 minutes to watch this video. I think you’ll agree after watching this that even a basic understanding is helpful to seeing what this thing called life is all about.
You may have noticed that the video I included above was a 2 part series. If you’re interested in seeing part 2 of the series click here.
Suffice it to say that sacred geometry is a model for life and how it is created. Even science is beginning to admit that the physical points directly to the metaphysical. The truth of “as above,so below” is taking on ever deeper meaning.
The whole creation story can be told using sacred geometry as you can see from the illustration below.
But the story of our physical birth can also be told. The football shape in the middle is the shape we all come through into this physical world. It is how the cells multiply to create everything you can imagine. So as you can see this one simple basic form called vesica Pisces can be contemplated for years! Even the name Pisces points to an era From 0 A.D. to the present. We have just transitioned the Age of Pisces and for the next 2000 years we will be in the Aquarian Age. The official beginning of the Aquarian Age is said to have been on November 11, 2011 or 11/11/11. Many of you may have had many sighting of this number in dreams or on clocks license plates etc.
The shape of vesica Pisces can be seen in many logos from Master card to the Christian fish symbol. Look around and see that there are symbols everywhere from the eyes you look from to the content of what your eyes see!
A Course in Miracles says “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world” Often we need tools to change our mind just like we need tools to change a tire. My hope is to offer such tools. Sacred Geometry is one I find very useful to see the world differently.
I hope you will look into this very ancient art as a part of your spiritual journey and practice. I invite you to do a Google search and see for yourself how beautiful our world is if we really look!
