About sacred geometry
Sacred Geometry ascribes aesthetic design principles and symbols using patterns and Divine Proportions as found in nature, for religious or spiritual purposes. The sacred geometry has its source in math theories, alchemy, ratios, harmonics, and other esoteric philosophy and scientific systems. The word "Geometry" derived from the Greek - "Geo" that stands for "Earth" and "Metron" means "to measure" or "Earthly measurements."
Some various structural formations and symbols belong to the sacred geometry formations, such as the Golden Ratio, Phi, Platonic solids, Fibonacci spirals/sequence of number fractals, the Vesica Pisces, Flower/Tree/Seed of life, toroids/tube torus vortex, sine waves, Merkaba, and Metatron's Cube.
Sacred Geometry is not a human-made structure of religious or spiritual significance. It is inherent in everything, including trees, seeds, leaves, pine cones, shells, flowers, ocean storms, sound vibration, crystals, and even in humans' physical bodies, DNA spirals harmonics that remind people of relationships to the holographic universe and life.
Below you will find some of the common sacred geometry symbols with their meanings.
Merkaba is like a 3D Star of David formed by two triangle-shaped pyramids intersected and superimposed through each other. For example, the word "Mer" signifies light, "Ka" - spirit, and "Ba" - body. It symbolizes light, Light Divine vehicle, reaching for higher realms, and perfect equilibrium among complementary opposites' laws. The symbol within a sphere stands for the spirit body's energy field, which is surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, bringing one dimension to another.
Concentric Rings represent growth, tree rings, expansion, fingerprints, sound waves, water ripples, radiation, etc.
Spirals are sacred geometry symbols that stand for snakes, rivers, water, curling waves, Kundalini energy, growth, movement, expansion, screws, shells, and spinning.
The Golden Mean
The Golden Mean is a math sequence of numbers that continues for perpetuity without a repeating pattern. The Golden Mean symbol is related to the spiral of the Chambered Nautilus shell and other spiral formations as well that are found in organic structures and nature. It is a representation of renewal and infinite expansion. These proportions are typical in the compositions of "sacred art" as the esthetically harmonious arrangement and design elements. A simple formula for this sign's use in design and art is: "a+b is to a, as a is to b."
The Fibonacci Spiral
The Fibonacci Spiral symbol is quite identical to the "Phi ratio," particularly within this pattern of numbers such as 1/1=1; 3/2=1.5; 13/8=1.625; etc. However, this following addition is a bit easier to remember - 0+1=1; 1+1=2; 2+1=3; 3+2=5; 5+3=8; 8+5=13; etc. The Fibonacci spirals are generally used to craft musical instruments such as cellos, violins, and sound vibrations and music in the musical scales, tones, and notes.
Labyrinths are symbolic circular designs or maze-like spirals of a pilgrimage towards the center, or a spiritual journey "following" or "staying" on the right path. Most of the Labyrinths are created as intricate mandalas, and some can even be quite large as constructed in gardens used in meditation practices.
Toroid (or Tube Torus) is a rotating 3D circular form similar to the shape of a donut. The dynamic flow of energy serves as a vortex, pulling power right into the center from one end and out to the sign's surface from the opposite end.
Fractals are objects occurring in nature and have intricate formations that repeat in various scales and sizes, as seen in multiple kinds of plants, leaves, trees, ferns, pine cones, vegetables, seashells, crystals, feathers, and snowflakes.
Here you can see the fractals occurring in nature in different shapes and sizes:
With fractals, these patterns duplicate in infinitely smaller designs. For instance, romanesco broccoli can be a perfect example to illustrate, because once you zoom in to enlarge the tiny buds, you will immediately notice that each one is an identical replica of the farther larger forms. Besides, Pythagoras Trees, the Dragon Curve, and Fractal Trees are a few varied fractal patterns.
