A Brief Introduction to The Seed of Life

A Brief Introduction to The Seed of Life

There are certain symbols that we contemplate to better understand ourselves, the universe, and our place in it. Symbols whose perfect symmetry catches in our minds, and which holds a key to understanding if we can find it. Many of these symbols are considered sacred (hence the term sacred geometry), and are elevated to a spiritual and religious level of importance.

One such symbol is called the Seed of Life, and it has been around for centuries. From Egypt, to India, to Greece, to Renaissance Italy, to the modern day, this symbol has captured the minds and imaginations of holy...


Do I Really Have a Third Eye? How to Explore Your Vision

Do I Really Have a Third Eye? How to Explore Your Vision

Take a moment to cultivate awareness of your body. As you sit or lie down, envision the invisible arc of energy that originates at the base of your spine and extends upwards through the crown of your head. This energy makes its way through seven energy centers of different colors, called chakras, that seek to balance your body, mind, and spirit.

Now focus on the spot between your eyebrows — a powerful locus of spiritual vision, intellectual clarity, and enlightened thought. This is your third eye chakra, also known as Ajna, that's responsible for elevating our perception past the realm...


5 Ways to Look for Sacred Geometry Every Day

5 Ways to Look for Sacred Geometry Every Day

Many mystics, philosophers, and mathematicians, and scientists believe that geometry is fundamental to our reality. The idea of sacred geometry was known to many ancient cultures from Egypt to India. Evidence of this can be found in many structures such as temples, churches, pyramids, and monuments such as Stonehenge. However, you don't have to travel to exotic lands to find sacred geometry. If you know where to look, it's all around you. Looking a little more closely at your environment will reveal the wonders of the world around you. Here are 5 of the best ways to find evidence...


Sacred Geometry 101: An Introduction To Metatron's Cube

Sacred Geometry 101: An Introduction To Metatron's Cube

While most people are familiar with the archangel Michael or Gabriel, there are many more divine beings who hold that title. Perhaps one of the most potent of these angels is Metatron. While his name might sound like something from a comic book, Metatron is a figure in the Old Testament (though his is also acknowledged in many Christian sources as well). Metatron is an angel who guards the tree of life. Additionally, it's thought that he walked the earth as the prophet Enoch before he was raised to the status of a divine being after he arose to heaven....


Phi, Pi and the Geometry Behind the Great Pyramid

Phi, Pi and the Geometry Behind the Great Pyramid

Originally called Khufu's Horizon, the Great Pyramid of Giza is so famously beautiful that it has spawned a thousand theories about its origin, from it being built by the fictional empire of Atlantis to it representing the work of aliens from outer space. But a much more plausible explanation has superseded them all: The Egyptians were extremely advanced in mathematics for antiquity, working in proximity to equations and ratios that wouldn't be written down for centuries. Here's a peek behind the building of Egypt's Great Pyramids and how their relation to phi, pi, and sacred geometry only add to...


What is Sacred Geometry and What Does it Mean For Me?

What is Sacred Geometry and What Does it Mean For Me?

If you've dabbled with spiritual topics, then you've no doubt heard the phrase sacred geometry. The phrase is very evocative, but the idea of shapes and math being somehow sacred is something that confuses a lot of people. After all, you probably had to take geometry in school, and you probably didn't feel any divine rush while you were drawing arcs with your protractor. However, sacred geometry requires you to dig a little deeper, and to look at the world around you with different, more curious eyes than you used when you first learned about the theories of great mathematicians like...


7 Life-Changing Benefits of Opening Your Third Eye

7 Life-Changing Benefits of Opening Your Third Eye

The concept of the third eye is one that a lot of people are passingly familiar with. Connected to the ajna chakra (the one located in the brow), this is the sixth chakra in the Hindu tradition. While your two normal eyes allow you to see the physical world all around you, the third eye is associated with intuition, the future, and in some traditions with the spirit world as well. While everyone possesses a third eye, not everyone has taken the time to open it, and to perceive the world through it. Those who put in the time and...


The Mysteries of Phi: The Golden Ratio, The Golden Spiral, and the Fibonacci Sequence

The Mysteries of Phi: The Golden Ratio, The Golden Spiral, and the Fibonacci Sequence

Every day, we experience sights and sounds that strike us as pleasant or calming. In some cases, there's no particular reason why some images in nature or art resonate more profoundly than others. But in certain cases, we're actually responding unconsciously to a powerful mathematical attribute: the Golden Ratio, or Phi.

This ratio is found all around us — in nature, in architecture, in paintings, and even in music. In mathematical terms, it refers to a number that's approximately equal to 1.618. This Golden Ratio is intimately related to the Fibonacci sequence, which in turn helps us map the beautiful...
