Lesson 2.3: Sacred Geometry - The Flower of Life

I think that the Flower of Life is the most widely accepted and popular form of sacred geometry. Everyone reading this probably (hopefully) already knows what it is, what it looks like, and what it means. But here’s a photo, in case you aren’t familiar or you just like looking at it as much as I do.

The Flower of Life has been found all across the world. It is not attributed to any one culture. It can be found in Egypt, Ireland, Turkey, England, Israel, China, Greece, Japan, and about twenty more locations. It’s probably in way more places across the world that we just haven’t discovered yet. In Egypt, it is carved in a wall in Abydos. The wall it was found on is one of the oldest walls in Egypt in a temple that is almost 6,000 years old. The Seed of Life is also found on this wall.

Drunvalo Melchizedek, the author of “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life”, said that he was in communication with Thoth (Tahuti) of Egypt. One of the many things Thoth told him is that the Flower of Life holds everything in the universe in its proportions. He said, “It contains every single mathematical formula, every law of physics, every harmony in music, every biological life form right down to your specific body. It contains every atom, every dimensional level, absolutely everything that’s within waveform universes.” It is the source of all language, all emotion, everything.

Clearly, this is a powerful symbol.

Here you can see how the seed of life comes from the flower of life.

Have you heard of the Tree of Life? It is the shape of the kabbalah, but the Jews/Hebrews actually are not the origins of the Tree of Life. It is carved on two sets of three pillars in Egypt at both Karnak and Luxor, dating to about 5000 years ago, but the Egyptians were not the source either. Here is the Tree of Life over the flower. The Tree also sometimes has to extra circles, an extra one on the top and bottom, and it still perfectly fits into the Flower.

Remember how we talked about the vesica piscis? Every line in the Tree of Life measures out to the length or width of a vesica piscis in the Flower of Life, and they all have the Golden Mean (phi ratio) proportions.

There is a pyramid in the western mountains of Tibet that is solid-white with a solid crystal capstone. It is in almost perfect condition. It is only visible three weeks out of the year when its crystal capstone comes out of the snow. There is a room in the center of this pyramid. In the pyramid, there are no writings, no designs, nothing. But in this room, there is an inscription of the Flower of Life. That is the only symbol anywhere in this pyramid.

I guess that says it all, right?

This lesson has been a bit short, but that’s okay. Everything to come in the sacred geometry lessons will be related to the Flower of Life, and in fact, everything we ever talk about is related to it. There are also many information systems that stem out of the flower of life that we will discuss after this. So this is a never-ending lesson; what you read here is only a very short synopsis.
