What is sacred Geometry?
The term sacred geometry describes the geometrical laws which create everything in existence.
It unites the mind and heart, spirit and matter, science and spiritually.
Everything in nature is made up of patterns, structures, and designs from the smallest atom to the infinite universe. Since these codes are creative, we can use their energy to create anything, including wholeness and oneness with all that is.
The circle is the shape of the cosmos and the womb.It carries within it the energy of completion, the energy of potential, and the energy of universe itself. It is the energy of wholeness; the energy of life, which has no beginning and no end, and no time. It is the circle of eternity.
The spiral is the sacred geometry of evolution, and an ongoing creative process. It is about journeying onwards, and moving forwards. It is about letting go and surrendering.
If you are caught in the past and memories still haunt you, but you desire to move away from them, start drawing the spiral. Spiral will take you away from the past. But if you wish to go back into the past, to resolve and complete the energy, then draw an anti-spiral. Go back into that traumatic memory that you wish to resolve; surrender it, let it go and then draw the spiral.
You must always end this activity by drawing at least one spiral. The spiral is about expansion but it is also about contraction. When we move ahead, we expand; when we go into our past, we contract. However, sometimes contraction is necessary to eliminate the energy of past traumas by re-visiting that experience to complete it.
The square carries the masculine energy, which is important to bring structure and order to life.
When there is disorder within or around you, and you desire some structure, then draw the square. Square is important for children, because they usually rebel against structure and order. Young children must be encouraged to draw the square. Then, ask the child to colour the squares. They have to understand and comply with the structure of the Earth, and on the other hand, they have to break that structure and bring in something new.
The shape that brings a balance between yin and yang, and which makes us neither too masculine nor too feminine, is the shape of the cross.
The cross is the sacred symbol of balance between spirit and matter, feminine and masculine, emotional and mental. All polarities come into balance with the cross. Cross is also the sacred geometry of Transition, Transformation, Optimism, Cheer, Happiness, and Hope. As you get into your balance and move into another stage of evolution, the cross helps in this transition. Whenever you are in a transition phase, draw the cross.
The symbol of heart is the code for Emotions and Sensitivity. Emotional and over-sensitive people should not draw the heart as a continuous exercise; but those who cannot touch their emotions, are very practical, egocentric, and matter-oriented must certainly draw the heart. Those who are blocked to their own emotions would certainly be blocked to others’ emotions. If you desire to bring in sensitivity, draw the heart. If you desire to understand your own emotions as well as of others', draw the heart. To move from conditional love to unconditional love, draw the heart.
There are two types of stars; the six-pointed one and the five-pointed one. Both of them are companion stars. While the five-pointed star is for the Earth, the six-pointed star is for the Spirit.
The 6-pointed star is the energy of the divine Mind. It forges a direct connection between the mind, the higher mind, and the Divine Mind. To understand divine laws, truths, and mind, draw the six-pointed star. The five-pointed star brings all the elements of nature into balance and gives them a central direction. If you desire to balance your life, home and your environment, draw the five-pointed star. When there are chaotic elements in nature such as a fire, flood, and earthquake and you want to abate their force, draw the five-pointed star.
The Diamond is a sacred symbol of ascension, growth and clarity of mind and feeling. It helps us to connect with our intuition. If you are confused, then to remove the confusion, draw a diamond.
The Swastika: ( is not what you might believe it to be)
The Swastika is the symbol of the perfect mind, heart, and balance of Spirit and physicality. It is the symbol of the avatar, the perfect human being, who has transcended his humanness and functions as a Spirit, while still in physical embodiment. This symbol brings perfection, wholeness and expansion; connecting everything to the Source. It helps the human being, so that he can transcend his baseness and restricted desires, and become the perfect mind.
If you wish to reach the state of perfection, draw the swastika.
The triangle is the symbol of unity, oneness, balance, and creation. It is also the symbol of manifestation, illumination, magic, and alchemy. If you are perfecting your skills at magic or manifestation, draw the triangle as often as you can.
If you desire to manifest something material, draw a downward pointing triangle. But if you desire to manifest something spiritual, such as a state of being, draw an upward pointing triangle.
If you wish to quell the quarrel between two warring parties, draw two right-angled triangles with the same centre line, representing the common energy between the two.
Spare your thoughts:
The basic sacred geometric codes can used to benefit from the energies in them. These simple tools must be taught to all, especially to children. Once we have perfected these shapes and truly understood their energies, we can create our own sacred geometry. Once we are clear about the energy of the basic shapes, putting them together will follow naturally. As we flow with this energy, we learn the language of Creation. If you are feeling scattered and wish to feel whole once again, keep drawing the circle again, and again, and again. If you feel that your masculine energy is far stronger than the feminine energy, draw the circle. If you feel a block in your creativity, draw the circle.
