There is a sacred architecture that underlies everything in the Universe, consisting of repetitive shapes and structures that are woven into all of creation. These shapes and patterns are referred to as Sacred Geometry, and they exist in all living things.
Sacred Geometry can be observed in all of nature, including plants. As we will soon see, by combining Sacred Geometry with the magical properties of herbs, we can enhance healing and amplify our connection to the Universe.
Sacred Geometric Shapes
1. Triangle: The Triangle is a symbol that underlies all of the building blocks of Sacred Geometry. Triangles symbolize higher consciousness, as the shape rises to an upward point.
2. Circle: The Circle represents wholeness, oneness, perfection, boundaries and cycles of change.
3. Square: The Square represents stability, foundations, grounding, safety and practical, ‘earthly’, structure.
4. Spiral: The Spiral represents higher consciousness and can be seen at all levels of the Universe. The spiral is the shape of the double helix in the DNA of each cell, and galaxies are in spirals of energy. Like the saying, “As above so below”, the spiral shape is observed high in the heavens and deep within the smallest particles of our bodies.
5. Pyramid: The Pyramid contains within it the shapes of the spiral, triangle and the square. The body of the pyramid represents humanity and our upward spiraling journey toward enlightenment. The top of the pyramid represents spiritual attainment.
6. Flower of Life: The Flower of Life is a representation of the connection with all living things in the universe, and is said to contain within it the ‘blue print of creation’. The Flower of Life represents the building blocks at the core of the architecture of the universe, as it holds within it the basic design of every atomic and molecular structure in existence.
7. Star of David: The Star of David is a 6 pointed star made up of two triangles. The upward triangle represents the feminine, the downward represents the masculine, and the two merging in the star represent perfect harmony.
8. Merkabah: The Merkabah is considered a highly sacred shape. Consisting of interlocking triangles, it holds within it shape all other symbols in Sacred Geometry.
