What is Sacred Geometry?

Sacred geometry is the study of geometric forms and patterns that hold spiritual or symbolic meanings. These patterns represent the fundamental building blocks of the universe.
It has been recognized across civilizations, in many texts such as the Vedas, inscribed on architecture, such as the temples of ancient Egypt, and is found within our own bodies and through nature. The interconnectedness inherent in the shapes of sacred geometry represents the multi-dimensionality of our own consciousness and the transition humanity is experiencing from an old paradigm of separation to a new paradigm of oneness. Sacred geometry can be thought of as a portal accessing the entire universe and other dimensions accessing higher potentials of wisdom and healing. It is a symbol of our own innate power and is a tool to guide us to our true nature of divinity.

Her Holiness Sai Maa delves into the world of sacred geometry and its role in the universe in this next video. This ancient wisdom has been echoed through civilizations, mentioned in the Vedas, and embedded in the fabric of creation. Sai Maa discusses the activation of the pineal gland with the bindi, the state of infinite creation symbolized by circles and spheres in sacred geometry, and the transition from an old paradigm of separation to a new paradigm of oneness.

Sacred Geometry, the Universe, and Consciousness

With its precise geometric patterns and mathematical ratios, sacred geometry is often considered the language of the universe and the blueprint upon which cosmic consciousness is built. The shapes and ratios can be found throughout the natural world, from the arrangement of galaxies to the growth patterns of plants to how our cells multiply.

These recurring geometric patterns suggest a deep interconnectedness between the microcosm and the macrocosm, implying that the same principles that govern the formation of galaxies and the growth of planets also apply to the development of human consciousness. Sacred geometry is a key that unlocks higher states of awareness and understanding. Meditating upon these geometric shapes and using them in visualization can lead to shifts in consciousness, expanded perception, and a sense of oneness with the universe. Sacred geometry serves as a bridge between the physical and the Divine.

Types of Sacred Geometry

While the principles of sacred geometry show up throughout all of nature, our bodies, and sacred patterns, there are several more commonly known shapes and symbols that are used in spiritual practices. Her Holiness Sai Maa and Maa’s teachers specifically reference these more recognized forms of sacred geometry listed below in their teachings. All shapes and ratios originate from the Flower of Life. It is said we can find the map of creation in this one symbol. If we use the circles (feminine energy) and lines (masculine energy), as we will see below, all forms of creation come out of this one divine symbol.

The Flower of Life: The Most Powerful Sacred Geometry

From Chaos to Beauty
The Flower of Life is a complex, symmetrical pattern composed of 19 evenly spaced, overlapping circles. When the centers of these circles are connected, a flower-like shape emerges. The Flower of Life encompasses the fundamental patterns and structures of the universe. It is a universal symbol of unity, interconnectedness, and the divine order. The Flower of Life contains the fundamental patterns and structures of the universe, with each circle within it representing different aspects of creation and consciousness.
The Flower of Life serves as a tangible representation of the interconnectedness that exists among all living entities within the universe. It is believed to hold the ‘blueprint of creation,’ containing what is known as the “Platonic Solids” – the fundamental building blocks of the universe. The ancient Greek Mystery Schools, some 2,500 years ago, introduced the concept of these five perfect 3D forms: the tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. These Platonic Solids are considered the cornerstone of the physical world. When you deconstruct these Platonic Solids to their most basic forms, they give rise to the triangle, square, circle, spiral, and straight line – the elemental sacred geometric shapes.

Vesica Piscis

From Chaos to Beauty
The Vesica Piscis is often associated with the womb, sacred feminine, and is associated with the emergence of light and creation. It is formed by the overlap of two identical circles, creating a shape resembling a fish or almond. Within the Vesica Piscis, the harmonious relationship of two circles symbolizes the merging of duality, a union of opposites, and the birth of new possibilities. This geometric pattern is a testament to the inherent unity and divine order present in the cosmos, offering a gateway to higher states of awareness and understanding, often found at the core of sacred geometric exploration.

Seed of Life

From Chaos to Beauty
The Seed of Life is composed of seven circles of equal size perfectly arranged to form a specific configuration. The Seed of Life expresses the initial stages of creation and the infinite potential for life to sprout and evolve. It is the heart of the Flower of Life, from which the other circles expand outward, representing the expansion of consciousness.

The Fruit of Life

From Chaos to Beauty
The Fruit of Life emerges from the Flower of Life. The Fruit of Life extends this pattern by connecting 13 circles from the Flower of Life to create a larger, complex shape. Its name is fitting, as it is believed to hold the “fruit” or creation of life. This sacred geometry, like the other components of the Flower of Life, symbolizes the interconnectedness of all living entities within the universe, representing the unity of life, the universe, and the divine order. Because both the Seed of Life and the Fruit of Life are found within the Flower of Life, they both encourage us to recognize the intricate beauty within the complexity of existence and are a symbol of the multi-dimensionality of our existence.
Rajeshwari Maa reveals the essence of consciousness, formlessness, and sacred geometry symbols as she breaks down the creation of the Flower of Life. She explores the origins of these sacred forms and how they shape our reality. From the beginning point of the Bindu unfolding into the Flower of Life, she uncovers the fundamental building blocks of creation and the symbolism and flow of energy it represents.

Merkaba

The Merkaba is a three-dimensional star tetrahedron composed of two interlocking tetrahedrons, one pointing upward and the other downward. The two-dimensional version is the “Star of David.” The term “Merkaba” is derived from ancient Egyptian and Hebrew words, roughly translating to “chariot of light” or “vehicle of light.” The use of this powerful symbol encourages spiritual evolution and ascension. It represents the balance and integration of opposites, such as the masculine and feminine energies, the physical and spiritual realms, and the lower and higher selves. When activated or visualized, the Merkaba is believed to facilitate a connection with higher dimensions, serving as a vehicle for conscious travel through the spiritual realms and aiding in the expansion of one’s consciousness.
In this video, Rajeshwari Maa leads us through a meditation on how to access the power of the Merkaba to enliven our energy fields and raise our frequency. The Merkaba is a powerful energetic tool for enlightening the physical body and transcending lower levels of consciousness.

Torus

From Chaos to Beauty
The torus is often compared to a donut shape with its continuous, balanced flow from a central point outward and back in. It creates a harmonious, self-sustaining energy pattern. This dynamic representation of energy circulation mirrors the fundamental spiritual concept of interconnectedness and oneness, where everything is interwoven and flows in an eternal cycle. The torus embodies the notion that the same life force that propels the universe is present within us, encouraging us to recognize the inherent unity with the cosmos, accelerating spiritual growth, and assisting the alignment of one’s consciousness with the divine. Sai Maa teaches us that we have a torus energy field radiating out from our heart, encompassing our physical and energetic bodies. If we visualize this field in motion it can enhance our well-being, raise our consciousness, and facilitate healing.

Bindu

From Chaos to Beauty

The “Bindu” is represented by a small dot or point symbolizing the ultimate singularity, the unifying point from which all creation begins. It represents the initial seed or source of existence and the point of origin for geometric patterns. It is also associated with the third eye and the awakening of inner knowledge and intuition. In certain traditions, the Bindu is depicted by a red dot on the center of the forehead and activates the pineal gland in the brain to open consciousness.

In this video, experience the transformative power of the Torus and the Bindu. Sai Maa teaches how the magnetic field radiating from the torus within the heart, intertwined with the Earth’s own magnetic field, responds to our thoughts, emotions, and actions. When we meditate, our heart’s torus activates, and our consciousness shifts. This healing encompasses our subtle bodies, minds, emotions, chakras, and Akashic records. All working together for the transition from darkness to light.

The Spiral

From Chaos to Beauty
The spiral shape is significant because it is renowned for its ability to carry and transmit energy, a concept we have been familiar with through devices like radios, which employ spiral coils to transmit and receive energy. Scientists have also discovered that DNA is in the shape of a spiral. Initially, it was perceived as a ladder-like structure with encoded information. The shape of DNA plays a pivotal role in its capacity to both receive and transmit energy, revolutionizing our understanding of this fundamental building block of life. The spiral is not part of the Platonic solids. The Platonic solids are specific geometry. Out of them comes the formation of the golden mean spiral, coming forth from the Flower of Life. Also since the Golden Mean spiral cannot be represented in the 3rd dimension, natures way of replicating this three dimensionally is the Fibonacci sequence. For example, the Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding ones (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and so on), is often associated with the spiral patterns seen in seashells, hurricanes, and galaxies.

Mandala

From Chaos to Beauty
A mandala is a geometric pattern or design that holds spiritual significance in various cultures and spiritual traditions. The word “mandala” originates from Sanskrit and means “circle.” Mandalas typically feature a central point, or bindu, from which intricate and symmetrical patterns radiate outward, forming a circular shape. They can be two-dimensional, as in drawings and paintings, or three-dimensional, as in sculptures and architectural structures. Mandalas provide a sacred space within which individuals can journey into the depths of their own consciousness, facilitating a sense of unity and connection with the higher states of consciousness. Through the act of creating or gazing upon mandalas, one can experience a sense of balance, mindfulness, and spiritual alignment.
In this video, Sai Maa delves into the intricate relationship between our multi-dimensional existence and the imprints we leave throughout the universe. We gain insight into the nature of consciousness through the image of a mandala. These visuals invite us to expand our understanding of self and the entire universe, and aid in the process of enlightenment and our connection to source energy.

Sri Yantra

From Chaos to Beauty
The Sri Yantra is a sacred geometric pattern and a powerful symbol in Hindu and Tantric traditions. It consists of nine interlocking triangles, typically arranged in a double lotus pattern, and enclosed within a square with four T-shaped gates. In the center of the Sri Yantra is a bindu (dot), which represents the absolute reality or the source of creation. This sacred symbol is used for meditation, worship, and spiritual practices, as it is believed to encompass the entire universe and contain the essence of all deities and energies. The Sri Yantra is regarded as a visual representation of the sound OM, which is the cosmic vibration that underlies all of creation. It is also a representation of the divine feminine. Its intricate geometry and symbolism reflect the interconnectedness of all things and the journey from the outer material world to the inner spiritual realms.

Sacred Geometry in Nature

Up until now, we have been looking mostly at how sacred geometry is portrayed in art and images, used mostly for meditation and visualization. But it also occurs organically in nature. Fractals and the Fibonacci Sequence both influence how our cells function and reproduce, as well as patterns of nature like how shells and flowers grow, to the rhythms of the waves and moon. Sacred Geometry truly links the physical to the divine. Below are examples of how sacred geometry shows up in nature and the body.

Sacred Geometry and Water

Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese scientist renowned for his groundbreaking work on water crystals and their relationship with consciousness and intention. His research involved exposing water to various stimuli, such as words, music, and thoughts, and then freezing the water to examine the resulting crystal structures. Dr. Emoto’s findings suggested that positive words, thoughts, and sacred geometry had a profound impact on the formation of beautiful and harmonious water crystals which take on shapes of sacred geometry, while negative energies produced distorted and less coherent structures. His work highlighted the interconnectedness of consciousness, intention, and the geometric patterns that can be found in nature, providing evidence of the potential spiritual significance of sacred geometry in influencing the properties of water and, by extension, anything that is comprised of water.

Lalita shares the remarkable research of Dr. Masaru Emoto, unveiling the captivating connection between consciousness, intention, and water crystals. Dr. Emoto’s experiments demonstrated the effect of positive words, thoughts, and sacred geometry on water, revealing beautiful geometric patterns. Negative energies led to distorted structures. This work underlines the spiritual potential of sacred geometry in influencing, not just water, but everything composed of it.

Sacred Geometry and the Body

Our bodies, much like many aspects of nature, are made up of sacred geometry. The DNA is an example as it is in the shape of a spiral. Spirals are conduits of energy, both transmitting and receiving it. DNA is a dynamic energy receiver. When we listen to spiritual teachings, chant, or use affirmations, we do so not just with our ears, but we are essentially listening and absorbing with our DNA. It’s a shift in perspective where DNA is not just a molecular structure, but a vibrational channel. And this is all made possible by its spiral shape. Our cells, which are acutely attuned to our thoughts and emotions, receive and store these vibrations, influencing our overall well-being. Cells are also like fractals, reproducing replicas of themselves, or the mother cell. Many of our organs display this same fractal quality, creating self-similar replications. The lungs, brain, and circulatory system are all examples of fractals in the body.

Dr. Rachel Simpson explores the connection between the sacred geometry of the universe and the human body. She explains how the Flower of Life and fractals serve as the fundamental building block of all energy and is present in the development of humans and the cosmos. When we appreciate the intricate cellular architecture of the body and cultivate a positive relationship with it, we can experience healing, transformation, and enlightenment of the consciousness and our physical bodies.

Fractals

Fractals are shapes that exhibit self-similarity, meaning that they contain smaller copies of themselves at different scales continuing in this pattern infinitely. Fractals are found all through nature and sacred geometry. They serve as a visual representation of universal consciousness and innate subconscious programming of how we understand the world. Operating through repetitive processes within an ongoing feedback loop, fractals capture the essence of dynamic systems and the mystifying nature of chaos. These patterns, residing in between the dimensions we commonly perceive, mirror the divinely intricate fabric of creation itself. Fractals have also been related to the soul, the aspect of each of us that transcends the body and the illusion of this reality. They represent the infinite nature of the universe and what we are able to access when we learn to live from higher forms of consciousness.

This video of fractals can be used for meditation. Put on soothing music or just watch the unfolding, endless, patterns repeat. There is a growing body of research that says watching or visualizing fractals can greatly reduce stress and calm the nervous system. It is also common to see geometric shapes and patterns in meditative states.

Uses of Sacred Geometry

Meditation and Visualization:

Sacred geometric shapes are often used as tools for meditation and visualization. By focusing on these geometric patterns, we can tap into higher states of consciousness and gain insight into the nature of reality, promoting inner transformation. Using tools during meditation, such as sacred geometry and mantra, can help the mind settle more easily because it has something to focus on, and the frequency of any given tool aids in achieving higher consciousness with more ease.

In this video, Sai Maa speaks on visualizing the Flower of Life in the heart. The sacred geometry is a portal in this example and can help us access higher awareness, light, and love, allowing us to transmute lower-frequency emotions and beliefs.

Harmonic Resonance, Cymatics, and Chanting

Sacred geometry is closely linked to harmonic resonance and cymatics. The first suggests that certain geometric ratios and patterns have a harmonizing effect on our consciousness. The second is the study of how sound affects matter or how sound becomes physical and holographic as it leaves the vocal cords or source. It is believed that exposure to these harmonious forms can bring about a sense of balance, tranquility, and heightened awareness. Sound vibration that is considered beautiful or calming, when captured by sand or water, creates sacred geometry, mandalas, and geometric forms.

Chanting sacred syllables like “Om” takes on a whole new significance when we recognize that we are empowering our DNA as both a sender and receiver of these high-vibrational sounds. Not only is the DNA based on principles of sacred geometry, but the sound vibrations of sacred syllables that make up mantras have been shown to form beautiful sacred geometry in water. DNA listens, vibrates, and stores the energy we offer to it, shaping our experience of life in profound ways. Since about 60% of our body and over 70 % of the earth is water, we begin to see how sound, vibration and sacred geometry can play a huge role in harmonizing both. This can reshape how we interact with spiritual teachings, energizing practices, sacred geometry, and sound.

Sacred Geometry and Spiritual Practices

Sacred geometry is utilized in various spiritual practices to enhance our connection to higher consciousness and promote inner transformation. Here are some ways in which it can be used:

Meditation: Sacred geometric symbols, such as the Flower of Life or Sri Yantra, are often used as focal points during meditation. Meditating on these patterns can help individuals access higher states of consciousness, deepen their sense of unity with the universe, and promote inner peace and clarity.

Visualization: Visualization techniques involving sacred geometry help individuals manifest their intentions and desires. By visualizing specific geometric patterns, they can align their thoughts and emotions with their goals, facilitating the manifestation of their desires.

Healing: Some practitioners believe that specific sacred geometric shapes emit healing vibrations. They use these shapes in energy healing practices like Reiki or crystal therapy to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Law of Resonance/ Manifestation: Sacred geometry is often employed in vision boards and manifestation exercises. By incorporating geometric patterns that represent their goals, individuals aim to enhance the power of intention and bring their desires into reality.

Energy Alignment: The harmonious proportions and ratios found in sacred geometry are believed to resonate with human energy centers or chakras. By focusing on these shapes or wearing jewelry with sacred geometric designs, individuals can balance their energy and enhance their overall well-being.

Sacred Spaces: Sacred geometry is integrated into the architecture of sacred spaces such as temples, churches, and meditation rooms. The designs of these spaces are meant to create a harmonious and spiritually uplifting environment for practitioners.

Spiritual Art: Sacred geometry is often expressed through art, including mandalas and intricate designs. Creating or appreciating this art can be a form of meditation and a way to connect with higher realms of consciousness.

Spiritual Symbols: Sacred geometric symbols are used as spiritual symbols in various traditions. They can be displayed in homes and temples for spiritual protection and blessings, for energetic clearing, and have a calming effect on the mind and body.

Yoga and Mantras: In yoga practices, specific poses and mantras are often associated with sacred geometry. Practitioners may use these postures and chants to deepen their connection to the divine and access higher states of consciousness.

Sacred geometry serves as a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms, allowing us to tap into the inherent order and interconnectedness of the universe, and enhance our connection with higher levels of consciousness.

Sacred Geometry is vibration made into form, chaos made into beauty. These divine patterns are the building blocks of the universe. The geometric shapes and ratios are found all throughout history, across cultures, and in every aspect of nature, representing the interconnectedness between the physical and the divine. Sacred geometry is a universal language, enabling us to access higher states of awareness, promote inner transformation, and connect with Divinity through meditation, visualization, nature, and sound. It is more than geometry; it is a gateway to the divine, offering a bridge between the seen and the unseen, transmuting chaos into sublime beauty while opening doors to the infinite wisdom of the universe.
