The hidden mysteries of sacred geometry in nature
Nature all around us is inexhaustible and a source of wonders. We have lost so much of our ability to marvel and discover the world with our childlike eyes, that we no longer realize what a wonderful world nature is.
Sacred geometry is everywhere in nature. The easiest measurements to take in plant life are the number of seeds per flower, and the angles formed by successive leaves or branches along a stem. It turns out that these data both follow the Fibonacci series, and that each generation has a fixed angle
A multitude of crystals in the mineral world use only 7 geometrical figures. The structure, properties and quality of the universal source of life that is water, in liquid or snow form, respond to this same geometry. Finally, at the molecular level, where we find the subtle geometry of DNA (a double helix surrounding a double pentagonal structure). It goes without saying that the geometry of nature is sacred.
The geometry of plant growth
In 1753, the Scottish botanist Robert Simson realized that the growth pattern of many plants was governed by the Fibonacci sequence. It maps the geometry of growth in the spacing of leaves on a stem, in the number of petals and in the arrangement of seeds.
The Fibonacci sequence
Although Leonardo da Vinci is world famous, it was another Leonardo who helped discover one of the greatest secrets of sacred geometry
In 1202, Leonardo of Pisa or Fibonacci published his Liber abbaci, "The Book of Calculations". In it he explains the basic operations of arithmetic, in particular the theory of prime numbers, fractions and Euclid's theory. Then, as if it were a simple mathematical digression, he comes to the idea of the Fibonacci sequence
In mathematics, the Fibonacci sequence is a sequence of integers in which each term is the sum of the two preceding terms. It begins with terms 0 and 1.
The Fibonacci sequence appears in many biological forms, such as the branching of trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruit of a pineapple, the flowering of an artichoke, the unfolding of fern leaves, and the arrangement of a pine cone. As for daisies, they most often have a number of petals derived from the Fibonacci sequence.
If you look at the stem of a plant from above, you will see that the leaves grow in a spiral. This allows the stem or branch to receive as much light or water as possible.
By following the stem from leaf to leaf with your fingertip, you can determine the order of growth: it takes the form of a helix.
The arrangement of the seeds
The clearest visual examples of the presence of the Fibonacci sequence are the sunflower and the pine cone. The heart of a sunflower consists of two intertwined spirals.
The number of petals
It seems that the Fibonacci sequence also determines the number of petals that each flower will have:
3: Lilies, iris, trillium grandiflora
5 : Columbine, primrose, buttercup, wild rose, larkspur
8 : Delphiniums, bloodroot, cosmos
13: Cinerea, chrysanthemum
21: Chicory, yellow daisy
34: Plantain, pyrethrum
55: New Belgium aster
The number of petals never exceeds 144, the limit for many other examples of nature's Fibonacci sequence.
The Flower of Life in nature
Did you know that the Flower of Life can be found in plant form in nature?
This plant would be a lupinus texensis, a variety of lupin. If you know it, leave me a comment below this article :-)
The spirals of life
The geometry of the spiral manifests itself in nature in the form of proportional growth. The most cited examples are the nautilus and the fossil ammonite. These are, or were, invertebrates encased in a rigid shell. Unable to grow freely like mammals, they grew as their shells rolled up into larger and larger boxes.
The horn is another example of an organic structure that maintains its growth pattern rigidly as it grows. The horn spirals of a Dalle sheep or some antelopes have the same logarithmic spiral as the nautilus. While the nautilus uses a flat spiral, the horns of the greater kudu of central Africa grow in a 3D pattern. It is a spiral built around a cone or similar geometric figure ending in a point.
The geometry inherent in animal life is also visible in the patterns that spiders use to weave their webs. These patterns follow different mathematical models, including logarithmic spirals. The shape of an egg, made to facilitate egg-laying, is an example of the ovoid geometry of life. It is also said that there are other natural occurrences of the use of this geometry, for example on the wings of butterflies. Bees build the cells of their combs in hives in the shape of a hexagon
Moreover, honeybees have haplodiploid reproduction: an unfertilized egg will give a male and a fertilized egg will give a worker or a queen. Thus, a male will have a mother, while the workers and queen will have a mother and a father. Therefore, the pedigree of a male is made up of 1 parent, 2 grandparents, 3 great-grandparents, 5 great-great-grandparents, etc.; it is a Fibonacci sequence
Amazing, isn't it?
In the animal world there is a very amazing fish that knows sacred geometry well.
I'll let you discover it on video. It's just amazing!
How a fish of just 12 cm creates a masterpiece of 2 meters in diameter!
The world of snowflakes
The structure of a snowflake is one of the clearest manifestations of fractals in nature. This may be due to the fact that the flake is formed when water falls freely from the sky, passing through the atmosphere without encountering any interference. No other matter crystallizes in so many forms.
The observation of freezing water sheds interesting light on the geometry of the formation of ice crystals. On this subject, the work of Masaru Emoto is fascinating.
Now, let's get to the point.
Is there any point in knowing that geometry is everywhere in nature?
From a purely intellectual point of view, this may make sense but it is not the most important thing, for me anyway.
So what is really important?
The beauty of harmony
What is important is to let ourselves be touched by beauty because it ennobles our whole being and causes imperceptible changes within us.
Sacred geometry is a reflection of harmonious relationships in nature.
The influence emitted by the forms of sacred geometry is defined by what is often called a "vibration of form" or wave of form.
The formal universe that surrounds us emits these vibrations in all directions. They are generated by the electromagnetic activity of the different molecular, atomic and quantum levels. Our physical body does not escape this activity since it is built of the same components
The interaction of the vibrations of the environment with our own vibration is constant.
Not all forms in our environment are balanced and harmonious and do not follow the laws of Divine Proportion (the golden ratio, the basis of harmony). But only those that are, will seduce our eye and stimulate our interest
This means that we instinctively perceive the beauty that is offered to our eyes. We do not see it as being linked to a sacred geometry and arithmetic.
And to go further, among all the forms that surround us and that all have various influences, only the forms with which we have established a conscious relationship will emit towards us a vibration amplified by this interactivity.
The power of sacred geometry symbols
Symbols connect us to the living
The world of symbols is the world of life. Life works with symbols and manifests itself through them, each object is a symbol that contains life. In order to penetrate life, one must work with symbols and, conversely, in order to discover symbols and understand everything that contains them, one must live the real life. Symbols are seeds that you can plant.
The mandala, the Flower of Life, etc., shows us what we must strive for, a perfect balance of all worlds. Our symbols are powerful tools for awakening and healing. Look at them with your child's eyes, with wonder, without putting any concept, prejudice on the virtue, the energy they carry. You will then obtain wonderful results.
Why are we so attracted to sacred geometry symbols like the Flower of Life, or vibrational Mandalas?
Simply because symbols connect us to the living, they reconnect us with our soul, with the being we really are (and therefore not the being we were made to believe we were). All vibratory symbols speak to our soul unconsciously.
They attract us so much because deep down they are an invitation to walk towards ourselves, to walk towards beauty and splendour, to finally become one with them.
The mere fact that a symbol has travelled to us through the centuries is only proof that it is effective and functional. Otherwise it would have disappeared from the collective memory.
The shapes of a symbol build a path that induces a flow of energy special to the shape and volume. The energy thus created allows to raise its frequency and reach a certain vibratory level that opens up consciousness and understanding.
It is important to leave the brain aside, otherwise you unfortunately miss what is true, beautiful and pure from all eternity. The brain has an annoying tendency to sabotage your ability to be happy.
So trust your feeling. If a symbol speaks to you, speaks to your soul, follow your intuition, rather than a belief read or heard in this or that statement.
Symbols: tools of awakening and transformation
Symbols are tools for awakening to our spiritual dimension. They convey a very ancient and profound teaching.
Symbols have a magical power: it is a power of transformation. They are an aid to concentration and encourage us to become more true to who we are inside.
We are used to talking about sacred geometry outside ourselves, whereas it is also inside ourselves. This is, in my opinion, the most fascinating aspect to study because it allows us to advance on our path of study and self-realization. Life is a school. It is the way we look at things that makes all the difference because there is wisdom in everything.
Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov wrote that " since ancient times, men have sought a language that is both universal and synthetic, and their search has led them to discover images, symbols that express, by reducing them to the essential, the richest and most complex realities.
Through a part of his being, man is connected to the whole cosmos. By his structure, the human being reflects the whole universe. It is important to look at symbols, because the symbol is the language of Nature itself. But for most people, this language is still indecipherable.
Why is this language indecipherable? Because today man is cut off from his true nature. We feel uprooted, cut off from everything that is essential and alive. It is very difficult to fight against this system that enslaves us. Only living nature can preserve us from this.
Symbols in your daily life
Thanks to the vibratory symbols you can do a multitude of things:
- increase your own inner vibration
- harmonize your chakras
- work with virtues to enter in resonance with them so that they grow inside you
- energize your water, your medicines, your essential oils before energizing them (i.e. give them back all their vitality before consuming them).
- to clean and recharge your minerals without taking your head off
- harmonize and transform in a positive way the atmosphere of your house, office or other
I leave you with an ode to nature, to life, to beauty!
