There is believed to be many secret's hidden within the Flower of Life symbol. The design is said to hold the most significant and sacred patterns of the universe. It is believed to be a sort of blueprint for all life, with the fundamental patterns for everything from atoms to the universe and everything in between.
Ancient Sacred Geometry Symbol And Blueprint Of The Universe
Ellen Lloyd - AncientPages.com - The Flower of Life is a modern name given to an ancient sacred geometry symbol used by many different civilizations.
The symbol is of great spiritual and religious importance and believed to depict the fundamental forms of space and time. It has long been regarded as a blueprint of the Universe, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure, life form, and everything in existence. So, it is without doubt one of the most powerful ancient symbols.
The Flower of Life Can Be Found World-Wide
Just like the Ouroboros, an ancient infinity symbol, the Flower of Life can be found almost everywhere. The oldest known example of the Flower of Life has been discovered at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt. However, as one of the most ancient symbols known to mankind, we also find the Flower Of Life at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, a Buddhist temple at Ajanta, India, in ancient Chinese temples, in the Louvre, in Spain, Japan, Lebanon, at the city of Ephesus and many other places.
In the Forbidden City, in Beijing, China the Flower of Life can be seen underneath the paw of the “Fu-Dog”, the “Guardian Lion”.
This palace was home to 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. Like the Sphinx, the Fu-Dogs were a symbol of protection to the buildings and their inhabitants and also, they were considered to be the guardians of knowledge.
What Is The Meaning Of The Flower Of Life?
At first glance the Flower of Life appears to be rather simple, but there is a deeper meaning behind its design. The symbol is made up of multiple overlapping circles of the same size, 13 circles to be precise. Many people think that understanding the Flower of Life can help us to understand how the Universe works. Sacred geometry ascribes symbolic and sacred meanings to certain geometric shapes and certain geometric proportions.
Stephen Skinner, author of his book, the Sacred Geometry writes as follows: "The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Sacred Geometry offers an accessible way of understanding how that connection is revealed in nature and the arts. Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite..".

Many ancient people believed that numbers had a symbolic meaning aside from their everyday use. Various shapes such as triangles, octagons and hexagons are believed to be physical manifestations of a number. Sacred geometry has often inspired the designs of sacred architecture and sacred art.
Leonardo DaVinci's interest in the Flower of Life Symbol
One scientist who became very interested in the Flower of Life was Leonardo DaVinci, He studied it so he could to learn more about it mathematical properties and in what way it was connected to physical reality as well as consciousness. Leonardo was known for using the Golden Ratio of Phi in his artwork, this is also known as the Fibonacci Spiral, which is derived from the Flower of Life pattern.
Leonardo Da Vinci studied the Flower of Life
The Flower of Life - used today for study and meditation - is considered as a very ancient source of knowledge. Circles explain different aspects of reality and the symbol contributes with information ranging from the human body to the distant galaxies.
What Ancient Secrets Lie Within the Flower of Life?
The Flower of Life is a name for a geometrical figure composed of seven or more evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure, used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.
The perfect form, proportion, and harmony of the Flower of Life, also known as Life’s Flower, has been known to philosophers, architects, and artists around the world since ancient times. Pagans consider it to be sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. For many, this symbol is a visual representation of the interconnectedness of life.
The Egg, Fruit, and Seed of Life
Figures as prominent as Leonardo da Vinci are said to have ascribed significance to the Flower of Life and three similar symbols, called the "Egg of Life," the "Fruit of Life," and the "Seed of Life". Da Vinci seemed to have an interest in the symbol’s mathematical properties.
The ‘egg of life’ is said to form the basis for music as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. It is also identical to the cellular structure of the third embryonic division - the first cell divides into two cells, then to four cells then to eight. Thus this same structure as it is further developed, creates the human body and all of the energy systems.
The Flower of Life and its components can also be found in ancient alchemy . The Five Platonic Solids are also all found within The Flower of Life. These are the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.
The Flower of Life Around the World
One interesting feature of the Flower of Life is that evidence of its importance can be found in almost every major culture around the world. It can be seen, for example, in temples within the Forbidden City of China , in ancient synagogues in Israel , in the Buddhist temples of India and Japan, in the City of Ephesus in Turkey, carved into rock in Assyria, in Italian art from the 13th century, and in Cordoba, in ‘la Mezquita’ in Spain.
The oldest known examples of the Flower of Life are believed to be those present in the Temple of Osiris in Abydos , Egypt. Most archaeologists maintain that they are at least 6,000 years old, though some have argued that it dates to the 2nd century AD. The most peculiar feature of the Flower of Life in Abydos is that it appears that it was not carved into the granite but instead may have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision. It is thought to possibly represent the Eye of Ra, a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh .
The Flower of Life in Religion
The Flower of Life and the Seed of Life can be found in all major religions of the world. They are linked by New Age authors with the Biblical prophet Enoch, the Archangel Metatron, the six days of Creation, the Vesica Piscis religious symbol, and Borromean rings.
The Kabbalah , which has historically been studied by the followers of Judaism, also holds symbolic connections to the Flower of Life. The symbol of the Tree of Life , which may be derived from the design of the Flower of Life, is studied as part of the teachings of the Kabbalah. Additionally, the symbol of Metatron's Cube, found by connecting the centers of each circle in the Fruit of Life, is seen in early Kabbalist scriptures.
The Flower of Life has provided what is considered to be deep spiritual meaning and forms of enlightenment to those who have studied it as sacred geometry. There are groups of people all over the world who derive particular beliefs and forms of meditation based (at least in part) on the Flower of Life. It is said to contain the patterns of creation as they emerged from the "Great Void".
Sacred Geometry and How to Draw the Flower of Life
Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. According to this belief system, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred, since contemplating one is contemplating the origin of all things.
By studying the nature of these forms and their relationship to each other, one may seek to gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic, and mystical laws of the universe . The Flower of Life is considered to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time.
It’s relatively simple to draw the Flower of Life. All you need is a pen or pencil and a compass. To create the design you begin by making a circle. Then place the compass’ metal tip anywhere along the edge of the circle and draw another circle of equal diameter. From there you find the place where the two circles intersect, put the metal tip of the compass there and draw another two circles, always of the same diameter – one on each side of the first two circles. You can keep going and expand the Flower of Life by repeating the process of creating equally-sized circles centered on the intersection of two previous circles.
Flower of Life construction, 1-7 circles.
Documentary " The ancient secret of life flower " Sacred Geometry of the Universe
The flower of life holds a secret through which one can discover the most important and sacred pattern in the universe. This is the source of all that exists; it’s called the Fruit of Life. It contains 13 informational systems. Each one explains another aspect of reality. Thus these systems are able to give us access to everything ranging from the human body to the galaxies. In the first system, for example, it’s possible to create any molecular structure and any living cellular structure that exists in the universe. In short every living creature.
