The Seed of Life
Seeds are magic, potent vessels of nature. They hold entire intelligent blueprints for life. They can lie dormant for ages before the conditions are ripe for them to burst into life. As a beautiful metaphor for consciousness, a seed represents the divine design within all things.
::beginning & completion, wholeness, diversity, fertility/regeneration, strength & balance::
The Seed of Life is a universal symbol of creation. The name of this pattern instantly offers insight into its deeper meaning and purpose. Found at the heart of an ancient pattern called the Flower of Life, there is an entire cosmology of consciousness encoded into this singular geometric seed. I hardly know where to begin to express the importance of this pattern for life itself.
The Seed of Life is formed from a relationship of 6 circles around one. In fact, 6 circles will ALWAYS fit exactly around a 7th circle of the same size.
Each circle fits into this pattern like a lock and key, forming a dynamic field of possible geometric relationships which reveal the most fundamental shapes of Creation.
These 7 circles mirror our chakras, the colors of the rainbow & even musical scales! It forms a foundation upon which the infinite, fractal nature of life can be understood.
In order to unlock the deeper information contained within the Seed of Life, one must begin by connecting the dots..... (LITERALLY & symbolically).
I HIGHLY recommend that you draw these geometries using a compass & ruler to receive the full transmission of this inFORMation! ;)
QUICK DRAWING TIPS:
Begin by drawing your first circle with your compass. Move the anchor-point of compass to the outside of the first circle and draw your second circle. Now move the point of your compass to a point where these two circles meet on the edge of your first circle. Draw a third circle. Continue drawing circles 4 -7 around the outside of the central circle until the entire pattern is complete. You will start to intuitively understand the rhythm of this geometry once a few connections are made. Precision is KEY.
Here's a basic visual map for how the geometry unfolds:
The final, completed Seed of Life looks like this:
There's something SUPER magical about discovering how a simple arrangement of circles forms such a beautiful, perfect pattern. But this is JUST the beginning. Its Magic & Mystery are deepened when you start to unlock the secrets of the seed!....
As I mentioned earlier, one must "connect the dots" in order to understand what is hidden within this symbol. As you look deeper, you have the potential to discover a vast language of shape, proportion & harmony contained within these forms.
The first shapes that you can find within this pattern over & over again are the Triangle and the Hexagon, but its important to remember that this pattern isn't just 2D~ its multidimensional. The 3D forms of these shapes, the tetrahedron & the cube, are also encoded into the Seed.
I will explore this more in my next lesson! Keep connecting the dots and please explore my sacred geometry artwork (links below!)
