Christmas gets an added lustre with these special sacred geometry tree-ornaments
By Samuel Silva
It’s Christmas season again, everyone’s favourite time of the year, where families have wonderful and loving get-togethers. What do you love about Christmas, what excites you about this day? I’m guessing everything does: the colours, the food, the decorations, the Christmas presents. Seeing the whole family together and decorating the tree together has its own charm (get your decorations from here, if need be).
But do you know what these amazing sacred geometry symbols signify?
Flower of life
That circular geometrical shape composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles arranged in a flower like pattern with six fold symmetry like a hexagon is called the Flower of Life. It can be seen in the Ancient Temple of Abydos in Egypt and Galilee Masada in Israel.
There are many beliefs surrounding the significance of the Flower of Life but is it basically believed to contain information of all living things and is a visual expression of connections of life that runs through all living beings. It is also the basis of the Fibonacci spiral.
In India it is seen in The Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple), Hampi, and the Buddhist Temples in Ajanta.
Metatron’s Cube, derived from the Flower of life, is named after the Archangel Metatron. It is made from 13 circles of the same size, with lines extending from the center of every circle to the center of all the other twelve circles. Metatron’s Cube is said to contain the five key sacred patterns or shapes that make up all matter in this universe. The straight lines represent the Masculine and the spheres represent the Feminine, working together to create a symbol of universal unity and inter-connectedness.
Seed of Life
Six symmetrical circles enclosed within a seventh circle depict the dynamic field of possibilities contained within this Seed of Life. It depicts the 7 days of Creation, and represents the foundation of the many forms of nature such as the 7 chakras, the 7 colours of the rainbow and even the musical scales.
Fruit of Life
The Fruit of Life is composed of 13 circles. Meditating on this symbol can help one access higher dimensions and evolve spiritually. It contains the geometric basis for the formation of Metatron’s Cube.
The Egg of Life
The Egg of Life symbols composed of seven circles is taken from the Flower of Life. It is a 3-dimension figure and is said to be the shape of a multi-cellular embryo in the first hours of its creation.
Make sure it isn’t just another Christmas, but the best Christmas. Now you know what you’re using to decorate your Christmas tree, all those wonderful shapes that you probably have on the tree right now bring nothing but life to you and your family to get you through the year and on to the next one. Merry Christmas everyone!
