Sacred Geometry is the basic fundamental building blocks of our Universe are based on mathematics and form. Sacred Geometry can be found in all of nature in golden mean proportions, Fibonacci spirals, hexagonal structures, pentagonal structures, platonic solid structures, crystal structures, tube torus, etc.
Healing can be facilitated and meditation enhanced by using pyramid energy, platonic solids, crystals & stones, shells, art, etc. in sacred geometric forms.
From the farthest reaches of the cosmos to the atomic structure of a single cell within the body, the same laws of form and mathematics apply. The secret to life is in these forms and numbers. So by studying a simple flower, we can learn the basis of all life everywhere.
"Modern scientists are reaffirming what the ancients observed in their world and taught in their myths: that a consistent language of geometric design underpins every level of the universe, from atoms through galaxies" says Michael S. Schneider in his book "A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe".
FLOWER OF LIFE
The FLOWER OF LIFE (FOL) is a universal symbol found in architecture and literature all around the world. It is said to contain all the patterns of Creation.
This geometric design is found in most ancient cultures, and has been found in many countries including Egypt (the oldest known), Turkey, Italy, Masada Israel, Mount Sinai, Austria, Denmark, Bulgaria, India, Spain, Japan and China.
Within the FOL is the beginning (Genesis), which is a dot (.) in the middle progressing outward to form many complex 3-dimensional structures including:
* Seed of Life
* Egg of Life
* Fruit of Life
* Vesica Pisces
* Five Platonic Solids, the building blocks of the Universe
* Metatron's Cube
* Jacob's Ladder
* Fibonacci Spiral
* Star of David (Seal of Solomon)
* Tube Torus
The Vesica Pisces is found in Pagan and Christian literature and art. It represents the the coming together of 2 to create a 3rd. It is the entrance to the WOMB and the passageway to the birth of
wo(man). In Sacred Geometry the Vesica Pisces is the Universal Womb, that which births all of Creation.
It is the symbol of the Divine Feminine representing the vulva (yoni) of the Goddess (and woman), surrounded by the crescents of the waxing and waning Moon. Read more.
The picture to the left is called "Christ in Majesty" and is found in a manuscript n Germany. Christ is seen inside the Vesica Pisces. From what we learned in the above paragraphs, it seems to suggest thebirth of Christ from Mary's womb.
The 4 fixed signs of Aquarius (air), Scorpio (water), Leo (fire) and Taurus (earth) are shown in the corners. These represent the Holy Tetragrammaton, meaning "4 letter word", the YHVH. The letters represent the eternal and unknowable nature of G__. From the Tetragrammaton flow the 10 aspects of God, which are the Sepiroth that make up the Tree Of Life.
The Vesica Pisces can also be seen in the Eyes of Horus.
The RIGHT EYE represents the SUN, YANG, and right-side ANALYTICAL, FACT-BASED BRAIN.
The LEFT EYE represents the MOON, YIN, and left-side CREATIVE, EMOTIONAL and INTUITIVE BRAIN.
It is also the 3rd Eye (Ajna) chakra (between the eyebrows), which is the eye that can see beyond the the 5 physical senses. It is the source of intuition and the 5 clairs: clairvoyance (see), clairaudience (hear), clairsentience (touch/feel), clairalience (smell), clairgustance (taste).
In Latin, Vesica Pisces it means "vessel (mouth) of the fish" or "fish bladder" (denoting a vessel). It looks like a human eye or a fish without a tail. The two intersecting circles were modified to look like a fish (see picture to the left). The "fish" from the Vesica Pisces symbol has long been used to represent Jesus and Christianity.
There are five Platonic Solids: Cube, Icosadedron, Tetrahedron, Octahedron and Dodecahedron. Each one is a polyhedron, which is a 3-dimensional shape with flat faces. The faces are congruent, regular polygons with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex (corner).
The Greek Plato, in his Timaeus c. 350 B.C.E., equated the five Solids with the five Elements: the Cube with Earth, the Icosahedron with Water, the Tetrahedron with the Fire, the Octahedron with Air, and the Dodecahedron with the stuff of which the constellations and heavens were made, Ether (etheric).

METATRON'S CUBE & the MERKABA
Metatron's Cube is a structure born out of the Flower of Life. It represents the gridwork of our consciousness and the building blocks of the Cosmos. It is the matrix in which everything is contained in our 3-dimensional reality.
Metatron is an Archangel, known as the "big angel". He oversees all the other Archangels.

The Hidden Tree of Life - Multidimensional Geometric Truths Within Infinity
The tree of life is a very important symbol of creation and where the entire meaning of the universe lies. To understand the meaning behind the tree of life, though, we have to go back before the universe even existed. Kabbalah teachings state that the origin of the universe and the world began by God's creation of the ten sefirot, or the emanations, enumerations or characteristics of God. Some say that these sefirot represent the different parts of God, while others can look at these ten sefirot as the varying qualities of God himself or even the different parts and steps of the creation of the world or the universe.The tree of life symbol shows the ten sefirot mapped out, with each circle within the tree of liferepresenting one sefira, or one divine number. The different lines connecting each circle is said to represent the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Put these together and both make up the 32 paths to the secret of wisdom, or the meaning of existence and the universe. Ultimately, the tree of life shows how the divine plan or God's Will is unfolded for us to meditate upon and take deep into our minds, hearts and souls.
At the top of the tree of life lies Keter (crown) the first sefira that emerged from God. Keter is said to symbolize the origin of the Will, the Nothingness from where the universe emerged. From Keter, others arose, and is said to slightly change or transform each sefira that rose after it. You will see that the left side of the tree of life continues with three sefirot: Binah represents understanding or the vessel with which emotions and reason brings one closer to God, Gevurah represents severity or the strength and judgment of God and Hod represents glory or surrender to God, as well as sincerity.
The right side of the tree of life is said to represent the polar opposites of the sefirot, and leans more towards how our souls and spiritual selves expand: Chokmah represents wisdom or the birth of ideas, Chesed represents kindness or the loving Grace of God and Netzach represents eternity.
The middle path, which balances the right and left sides of the tree of life contains three other sefirot, namely, Daat (central state of the unity of all ten), Tiferet (beauty of symmetry) and Jesod (foundation). The last sefira is Malchut or Kingship, where the actualization or the realization of the Divine Plan is experienced.
This powerful symbol can act as a strong reminder to us about our interconnectedness with each other and the entire universe, as well as the paths one must take to be able to attain God's Divine Plan for him. As such, some have created sacred jewelry such as amulets or even tree of life pendant to let the wearer feel the power and the cosmic meaning of the tree of life.
This intricate tree of life pendant , for instance, created by cosmic jewelry artist David Weitzman, can be worn as a sign of unity and love.
"The Tree of Life is one of the most familiar of the Sacred Geometry Symbols," Weitzman explains. "The Tree of Life pendant forms the key to God's original creation. The pendant fits exactly to the Seed of Life and the Flower of Life."
The tree of life, as such, is our own key and gateway to the supreme being and to unlock the secrets of the universe, including the secrets to our own inner souls.
Fibonacci Spiral - Natures Numbering System
The Fibonacci numbers are Nature's numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.
Plants do not know about this sequence - they just grow in the most efficient ways. Many plants show the Fibonacci numbers in the arrangement of the leaves around the stem. Some pine cones and fir cones also show the numbers, as do daisies and sunflowers. Sunflowers can contain the number 89, or even 144. Many other plants, such as succulents, also show the numbers. Some coniferous trees show these numbers in the bumps on their trunks. And palm trees show the numbers in the rings on their trunks.
Why do these arrangements occur? In the case of leaf arrangement, or phyllotaxis, some of the cases may be related to maximizing the space for each leaf, or the average amount of light falling on each one. Even a tiny advantage would come to dominate, over many generations. In the case of close-packed leaves in cabbages and succulents the correct arrangement may be crucial for availability of space.
In the seeming randomness of the natural world, we can find many instances of mathematical order involving the Fibonacci numbers themselves and the closely related "Golden" elements.
Fibonacci in Plants
Phyllotaxis is the study of the ordered position of leaves on a stem. The leaves on this plant are staggered in a spiral pattern to permit optimum exposure to sunlight. If we apply the Golden Ratio to a circle we can see how it is that this plant exhibits Fibonacci qualities.
By dividing a circle into Golden proportions, where the ratio of the arc length are equal to the Golden Ratio, we find the angle of the arcs to be 137.5 degrees. In fact, this is the angle at which adjacent leaves are positioned around the stem. This phenomenon is observed in many types of plants.
In the case of tapered pinecones or pineapples, we see a double set of spirals – one going in a clockwise direction and one in the opposite direction. When these spirals are counted, the two sets are found to be adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
Similarly, sunflowers have a Golden Spiral seed arrangement. This provides a biological advantage because it maximizes the number of seeds that can be packed into a seed head.
Inside the fruit of many plants we can observe the presence of Fibonacci order.
As well, many flowers have a Fibonacci number of petals. Some, like this rose, also have Fibonacci, or Golden Spiral, petal arrangements.
Branching plants also exhibit Fibonacci numbers. Again, this design provides the best physical accommodation for the number of branches, while maximizing sun exposure.
3 petals lily, iris
5 petals buttercup, wild rose, larkspur, columbine
8 petals delphiniums
13 petals ragwort, corn marigold, cineraria
21 petals aster, black-eyed susan, chicory
34 petals plantain, pytethrum
55, 89 petals michelmas daisies, the asteraceae family
The occurrence of Fibonacci Numbers in Nature is interesting but the ratio of consecutive Fibonacci Numbers is important.
Fibonacci in Animals
A starfish has 5 arms. (5 is the 5th Fibonacci number). If a regular pentagon is drawn and diagonals are added, a five-sided star or pentagram is formed. Where the sides of the pentagon are one unit in length, the ratio between the diagonals and the sides is Phi, or the Golden Ratio. This five-point symmetry with Golden proportions is found in starfish.
Humans exhibit Fibonacci characteristics, too. The Golden Ratio is seen in the proportions in the sections of a finger
It is also worthwhile to mention that we have 8 fingers in total, 5 digits on each hand, 3 bones in each finger, 2 bones in 1 thumb, and 1 thumb on each hand.
The ratio between the forearm and the hand is the Golden Ratio!
The cochlea of the inner ear forms a Golden Spiral.
