Many people love the Flower of Life.
Many people like it, but have no idea what it is.
They've maybe seen it, but don't know what it represents, or they've heard of it, but don't know what it looks like. This exquisite pattern has gained popularity in recent times--it's on clothing, in art, furniture, you name it.
And yet, most people don't know what this pattern means.
I LOVE the Flower of Life and I also love to educate people about this amazing fundamental geometry whenever I can. It is held very sacred the world over and has actually been revered for millenia.
I think sometimes it's easy to take for granted the beauty in something so simple. After all, that's pretty much how all really good design works- it's so good that it mostly goes unnoticed. But if you're ever feeling down, take a moment to study your environment, namely nature. Look closely at a leaf. Study the patterns on your hands. Take in the beauty of the clouds above you. When we take a moment to observe the smallest simplest things in our natural surroundings, we discover immeasurable beauty, as well as immense gratitude for just how amazing life really is.
So what is the Flower of Life?
To put it so incredibly plainly, the Flower of Life is held sacred because it represents all of creation. Its beauty is both simple in form as well as profound in its implications. On paper, it is pleasing to the eye as a balancing mandala of dynamic symmetry, and looks like what it's named after: a flower, with six petals, based on a matrix of 64 overlapping circles. From this six-fold geometry, in three dimensions we find the structure from which all animated and organic life forms on this earth are born. It holds the geometrical framework for minerals, all those beautiful crystals humans regard in sparkling revelry. It contains the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in its first hours of life, a new baby. It carries the fundamental expression of sound, music, and even language. It literally bears the template from which all Platonic solids spring from, the building blocks of all life! This is sacred geometry at its finest.
For thousands of years, many cultures have revered this exquisite design, and have derived much spiritual expansion from it, knowing even without the aid of today's modern science and technology just exactly what it represents. I believe that this map of creation was given to us long ago through deep meditation and shamanic practices which have helped us to see energy and information in many dimensions on a micro and macro scale. Today's science has given more people immediate access to understanding our world and how it works, hopefully expanding our amazement of it all, and in retrospect, developing a greater appreciation of the spiritual mysteries of yore, and of the rituals that still exist and continue to elucidate today.
I incorporate the Flower of Life into many of my art pieces. I love starting off a painting with this sacred geometrical form because it helps me focus, it gets me into a meditative state, and it provides the foundation for me to further develop my sense of energy and composition in astounding ways.
Our innate curiosity and fascination with life and all its creation is discovered and propelled by the information that sacred geometrical forms, such as the Flower of Life, transmit. They are maps. They are keys. What joy to hold them in our hands, crystallized in a painting, distilled in our minds.
