Sacred geometry is the mathematical formulas that serve as the foundation through which everything exists. Sacred geometry is the place where mind, matter, spirit, and the bound and boundless meet. Sacred geometry is found everywhere, even your body! At the heart of everything is a mathematical code that inspires, influences, and informs it and how it appears in physical reality. In short, sacred geometry is the underlying and organizing principle of Creation.
In the 2016 Marvel movier, "Dr. Strange" the Ancient One reminds Steven Strange,
“You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of your senses? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. Thoughts shape reality. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Worlds without end. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?” – Ancient One
What's behind the shapes?
From nature, to sound, to energy movement, the human body, and so much more, numbers can be found in the make-up and chemistry of everything. Like feeling, numbers are the language of the Universe. And as sacred geometry shows, numbers vibrate on a level that constructs the world!
Numbers are found in universal mathematical equations that ultimately inform how a shape will look, its patterns, its repetitiveness, and its dimensions. According to the Golden Mean (phi or the Golden Ratio), everything has the ability to divide and subdivide. The Golden Mean is a mathematical law that represents Infinity. According to the Golden Mean, every part relates to another part and can continue to divide and subdivide for eternity. An example of this is a fertilized egg. Initially starting out as a single organism, that cell, once fertilized, divides itself then subdivides and continues to do so until the result is a human baby. This principle of division and subdivision can be seen throughout all of nature. Every organism, creature, and human being is founded upon and organized by the principle of the Golden Mean.
The world is a combination of five sacred shapes known as the Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. The Platonic Solids are named after the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, who said each of these shapes corresponds with one of the elements: earth, fire, air, water, and ether. Platonic Solids are congruent; have equal sides and angles and have the same number of faces that meet at the vertices. The Platonic Solids are like the building blocks upon which organic matter and life are constructed. We find good examples of this in nature, art, music, and language.
Literally, everything in the world can be traced to these shapes in one form or another: from the flowers and trees to human DNA and cell structure. Sacred spaces such as mosques and temples are also created using these patterns. It is even believed that these shapes hold the power to open communication channels to Source.
We use Sacred Geometry in our Mandala's, our Crystal Grids, our DNA, and it is even acknowledged in the polar grid of earth which you can connect the sacred temples. Here is some recommended reading on sacred geometry that helped me with compiling this article. I enjoy looking at everything in the world and determining its sacred meaning. You to will start to do this once you gather more of the meanings of the symbols of our world.
