In everything that we see, from buildings structures to nature's forests and all living things; all of these follow geometrical archetypes, which reveals the true nature and form from its vibrational resonances. 

Every shape is symbolic to being a part of a whole. This principle of "oneness" is a reminder of the relationship we have with all things created.

Each section describes a certain shape, and its relation to why we call it "sacred geometry".

The Sphere

The sphere is the most simple, perfect form all around. This is symbolic for completeness, unity and integrity. All around equal from the center point. Seeds, cells and planets are all sphere shapes, symbolizing the beginning of potential growth.

The point of a circle

At the center is the "point" of the shape. it has no dimension, but embraces all dimension. Symbolic of the here and now, in the moment. The "point of living" expression, recognizes the oneness we all share as individuals within a whole.

The Square Root of 2

The square root of 2 symbolizes the whole being more than the sum of its parts. The joining of the vertical and horizontal parts, comes the hypotenuse, which the length is the square root value. Ex. If the vertical and horizontal sides equal to one, the length of the diagonal line equals the square root of two. Also symbolizes a unified universe, a higher expression of self.

The Golden Ratio

1.61803399 represented by the Greek letter Phi, is known as the golden ratio. This is found in almost everything, from art, music composition and even the proportions of the human body. Where the ratio of the whole to the larger portion is the same ratio as the ratio of the larger portion to the smaller portion. This symbolizes the connection to ancestors and the preservation of knowledge. 

The golden ratio is connected with how the series is constructed, but not with any particular construction. The sequences are defined depending on the initial values, as the Lucas Sequence (2, 1, 3, 4, 7, 11, 18, 29...).

But, there is one special sequence closely related to the golden ratio, the Fibonacci Sequence. Each number equals the sum of the two numbers succeeding it. (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34...). This sequence is used by nature for construction along with the golden ratio. You can see it used in the distance between branches on a tree, flowers and petal placement, and even the dimensions of the human body.

Golden Spirals

The golden ratio is best understood geometrically by the golden rectangle. This rectangle unevenly divided resulting into one square and one rectangle, the squares sides having a ratio of 1:1, and the new rectangle would be exactly proportionate to the original rectangle- 1:1.618. This integration can go on and on for infinity. If you place a quarter circle inside each of the squares as they repeat, the golden spiral is formed. This pattern occurs in natures living things such as shells, plants, flowers and horns.

The golden ratio is formed by thirds within thirds, sixths, the connection between two and three, including every even and odd numbers. The ratio itself represents the transcendence of numbers, but understanding what these numbers represent can deepen our knowledge of our world around us. This can be applied to any number of geometric forms including circles, triangles, pyramids, prisms and polygons. 

The Square Root of 3 and the Vesica Piscis

Vesica Piscis is formed by the intersection of two circles or spheres whose centers exactly touch. This symbolizes shared vision or common understanding. This is where the term seeing "eye to eye" or "mirror of the soul" comes from. The ratio of the axes of the form is the square root of 3.

The Platonic Solids

The Greeks taught that these five solids were the core patterns of physical creation. Four of the solids were seen as the archetypal patterns behind the four elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water), and the fifth represents the life force itself. These same shapes are realized to be related to the arrangement of protons and neutrons in the elements of the periodic table.

The Flower of Life

The flower of life is the name of a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced overlapping circles. An extended version of Vesica Piscis.

The Seed of Life

The seed of life is formed from 7 circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which is the basic component of the flower of life design.

The Egg of Life

The egg of life is composed of 7 circles taken from the design of the FOL. The shape of the egg of life is said to be the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in it's first hours of creation.

The Fruit of Life

The fruit of life is composed of 13 circles taken from the FOL. It is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the basis for design of every atom, molecular structure, life form and everything in existence. It is also the basis for the design of Metatron's Cube, which brings forth the Platonic Solids.

Metatron's Cube

Metatron's cube depicts the five platonic solids which may be originally from the flower of life. The five platonic solids are geometric forms said to represent all springs of life, the building blocks for creation. These five structures can be found in minerals, organic life forms, sound, language and so much more. 

The Tree of Life

The tree of life is also said to be derived from the flower of life design.

The roots dig deep, the truck establishes foundation, the branches reach out for sustenance, the leaves collect strength, and the fruit provides nourishment. Trees produce oxygen, which symbolizes a breath of fresh air. The tree of knowledge, (connecting to heaven and the underworld), and the tree of life, (connecting all forms of creation), are both forms of the world tree or cosmic tree, and are portrayed in various religions and philosophies as the same tree.

Labryrinths

The ancient seven-circuit labyrinth is filled with symbolism. The mystical quality of seven, a number of transformation and vision. In medieval times, the seven circuits were seen to correspond to the seven visible planets, and a walk in the labyrinth was a cosmic journey through the heavens. The seven circuits can also be seen to represent the days of the week, the chakra colours, or musical tones. This symbol represents following the path to enlightenment and a meditative state of mind.
