Introduction to Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry in the Romanesco CauliflowerSacred Geometry is a term used to describe patterns, shapes and forms that are part of the make up of all living things and that regularly occur in nature. It is system of universal design in which the energy of creation organizes itself into form. The magical realm of sacred geometry expresses itself in the beautiful patterns of creation seen in snowflakes, crystals, flowers and pinecones.

Snowflake Crystal from SnowCrystals.comThe ancient cultures (Celts, Druids, Egyptians, Knights Templar, etc...) and aboriginal peoples (Mayan, Hopi, etc...) were very much aware of these geometrical signatures and Stonehenge from National Geographicnumeric frequencies. Experiencing a resonance with these living forms, the ancient peoples recognized the divine wisdom contained within each shape and built their sites of worship and monuments in harmonious accord with sacred geometry.

Fibonacci Spiral

Golden ratio in natureRecognizing sacred geometry as a blueprint or universal design has been steeped in mystery. The recent popularity of the Dan Browns' The Da Vinci Code is a good example of these mysterious teachings and In The Da Vinci Code the Fibonacci series is identified as a code with a repeating numerical sequence. Leonardo Fibonacci was a mathematician who discovered the Fibonacci code in the middle ages and who introduced the decimal system.

Pinecone with the Fibonacci SpiralUsing a set of sequential numbers a mathematical spiral can be created called the Fibonacci Spiral and this spiral can be readily seen in nature.  Nature examples involving the Fibonacci numbers are sea shell shapes, branching plants, flower petals, pine cones, leaf and seed arrangements, and in fruits such as apples and pineapples. See the links page for more information.

Five Platonic Solids

"The whole of platonic solids form the basis for the geometry of creation."

~ Janosh

Other elements of sacred geometry include the 5 platonic solids which are 3 dimensional polygons with a sequential relationship to one another called duals or congruency. Congruency occurs when one polygon with its unique shape, size and facets can be transformed into the next polygon by changing it's placement by flipping or rotation. The platonic solids include the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron & icosahedron.

Tetrahedron

TetrahedronThe first of the platonic solids is the tetrahedron having 4 triangular sides and symbolizing the element of fire.

Suggested Divinatory Meaning: the power of fire and the power present in the tetrahedron are beneficial for creating change but need to be handled with utmost care.

Cube or Hexahedron

Cube or HexahedronThe second platonic solid is the cube or hexahedron having 6 square sides and representing the element of earth.

Suggested Divinatory Meaning: a solid foundation and stability suggesting a need for patience and consistency, allowing things to develop in their own perfect time.

Octahedron

OctahedronThe third of the platonic solids in the octahedron having 8 triangular sides and symbolizing the element of air.

Suggested Divinatory Meaning: careful balance between multiple forces suggesting the need for diplomacy, grace and willingness to learn.

Dodecahedron

DodecahedronThe fourth platonic solid is the Dodecahedron symbol for the universes and having 12 pentagonal sides.

Suggested Divinatory Meaning: a framework for the descending subtle energies of spirit. This suggests a time in which the divine forces must lead the way whether the understanding is there or not.

Icosahedron

IcosahedronThe Icosahedron is the fifth and final platonic solid having 20 triangular sides and symbol for the element of water.

Suggested Divinatory Meaning: trust in the wisdom of the universe is needed with a willingness to allow others to assist in the situation versus pursuing an active role. As the water suggests, it time to go with the flow.

In nature, the cube, tetrahedron, and octahedron occur as crystal patterns throughout the mineral kingdom. Where the dodecahedron and icosahedron appear in certain sea plankton, viruses and compounds such as graphite. As such, patterns such as the Fibonacci spiral and the platonic solids found in sacred geometry demonstrate the divine and mysterious blueprint of creation as a complex and exquisite system of physical form.

See the Links page additional information on sacred geometry.

Toroids

Formed by repeated circular rotations with each circle meeting at the center, the toroid is often seen in seed heads such as the sunflower and daisy family.

There are many other progressed forms of platonic solids such as the 13 Archimedean Solids, as well as other sacred geometrical symbols such as the flower of life and the 4 sided pyramid.

In addition to the aesthetic beauty contained within sacred geometry, like nature, these patterns have a soothing affect on the psyche. Gazing at them or being in proximity to sacred geometrical patterns often evokes a sense of familiarity and well-being. The vibrational resonance or energetic dance that occurs between the specific shapes and those who look upon them inspires an unspoken knowing and connection of divine significance. This powerful resonance exemplifies sacred geometry as a universal language that crosses multiple dimensions, unites life forms and places us firmly within the divine blueprint of the cosmos ... however how big or how small.
