What Is Sacred Geometry?

Sacred geometry symbols are known as ancient shapes and patterns that are believed to represent all living things.

These symbols are regarded as the most perfect/divine shapes because they are regarded as the blueprints of many life forms in the universe.

Also dubbed as the language of the gods, these sacred symbols are also a depiction of everything that is mystical and abstract in this world.

#1 The Flower Of Life

First on our list of sacred geometry symbols is the Flower of Life. This symbol contains all necessary information about every living thing in this world. Moreover, it depicts the interconnectedness of all life forms.

It shows how humans are nothing but complements to other life forms, and vice versa. This reminds us that everything in this universe is molded from a single life blueprint. 

The Flower of Life has overlapping seven symmetrical circles to the shape of a flower. Many people believe that this formation represents the growth of a tree – from growing roots to bearing fruits.

#2 Sri Yantra

The Sri Yantra contains both the masculine and the feminine energy of the world, as well as the cosmos. It is the greatest source of energy, power, and creativity. 

The Sri Yantra has nine overlapping triangles. Four triangles point upward carry all masculine energy and power.

On the other hand, the remaining triangles that point downwards are seen as the divine feminine.

Another sacred geometry symbol that can be traced back to religion is the Metatron’s Cube.

Named after an Archangel in Christianity, the Metatron’s Cube is the main equalizer of all the energy flowing in the universe.

It also protects the energy of every existing life form by sending energy to those who may be in need. True to its archangel nature, the Metatron’s Cube is considered as the guardian of the universe.

This symbol contains the five platonic solids which represent the five elements of the universe: earth, fire, water, wind, and spirit.

#4 The Seed Of Life

With one circle at the center and six circles surrounding it, the overlapping of these shapes is seen as a perfect depiction of how each day of creation is interdependent with each other.

The creation of the universe was an intricate process: one can never exist without the creation of the other. The circle at the center is the culmination where every creation has finally come together.

This six-pointed star signifies God, humans, and Torah’s teachings (a book in the Bible).
