The Flower of Life is considered a sacred symbol in both ancient and modern times. In it we find the template from which everything in the universe emerges from.
The flower of life symbols goes back thousands of years. In ancient Egypt we may find this symbol engraved with laser-like accuracy on a granite wall in the Osirian Temple in Abydos. The image has chipped away but the engraving is embedded inside the granite block puzzling scientists who have studied it.
From the Flower of Life emerge different sacred symbols for many religions around the world. One of them is The tree of life. This is a mystical symbol used in the Kabbalah to describe the path to God and the manner in which he created the world out of nothing. The tree of life contains 11 sephiroth (one hidden), each representing a stage in creation. Each of these sephiroth corresponds to points of union inside the tree of life.
The top sephiroth represents pure creative force or god. The bottom one symbolizes our material and physical world. The tree teaches us how creation goes through 7 different levels from divine to material.
Leonardo da Vinci studied the Flower of Life’s form and its mathematical properties. He drew the Flower of Life itself, as well as various components such as the Seed of Life. He drew geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, and a torus, and also used the golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design. As far back as Greek Mystery schools 2500 years ago, we as a species were taught that there are five perfect 3-dimensional forms -The tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. Collectively these are known as The Platonic Solids — and are the foundation of everything in the physical world.
Modern scholars ridiculed this idea until the 1980’s, when Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated that the entire Periodic Table of Elements — literally everything in the physical world — is based on these same five forms! In fact, throughout modern Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, the sacred geometric patterns of creation are being rediscovered, but often without the greater context of spiritual understanding.
The understanding that everything in creation emerges from the same template that has both geometric and mathematical patterns. These patterns can be derived from the Flower of life which is the template for creation in the physical world. At the entrance to the Forbidden City, an ancient imperial palace in Beijing that was built in the early 1400’s, you can see the same flower of life under the paw of the Fu Dog (more accurately called “Guardian Lions”). This palace was home to 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The Fu Dogs not only be a symbol of protection to buildings and their inhabitants, but the also guardians of knowledge.The flower of life also appears on the walkway around the Golden Temple, or Harmandir Sahib, one of the holiest shrines of the Sikh religion. It was built in the 16th Century and means the “Temple of God.”
