Looking at Sacred Geometry

I had a startling vision a couple of decades ago that led me to research Sacred Geometry. When I did, I was astonished to find that the beautiful symbols I saw in my vision have been known about and studied for thousands of years. From the Ancient Chinese geomancers to Plato, from the Egyptians and the Hindus, through to the modern work of Nassim Harimein (video), the same powerful geometric shapes recur over and over again.

Once I started looking at Sacred Geometry I found it cropping up everywhere! Also called “The Building Blocks of Creation,” or the “Platonic Solids,” these energies and forms are found in everything from our DNA to the spiral of a sunflower, from a snowflake to the Fibonacci numbers. There is a science to studying the “perfect forms” and how they create or appear in daily life, and researchers are discovering new manifestations every day.

From www.spiraloflight.com I read: “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 which protects against their misuse.”

More recently I’ve learned that on an energetic level the forms themselves, solely or in combination, are thought to enhance different functions for people, such as creativity, grounding, achieving deeper meditative states, etc. Consequently, there are a growing number of artists creating jewelry, mobiles, and paintings designed to trigger the energies inherent in each form. You can find such pieces on sites like  www.metaforms.net, and others.


Body & Soul: How to Deepen Your (Spiritual) Connection by Sahar Huneidi

| by Sahar Huneidi

Spiritual awareness is really about integrating the two duality forces which exist in many forms and on various levels: the Yin & Yang, the passive &active, the essence & form, spirit & matter – more to the point, body & soul. Once you are aware of the inherent polarity you can begin to understand that as we develop one aspect, spiritual awareness (the soul) or the mind, we must also develop the other complimentary force, the body in order to maintain harmony and balance in our lives; and to strengthen the connection between body and soul.

Validating Your Spiritual Experience

| by Merryn Jose

Many years ago I, too, had what they now call an “STE,” or Spiritual Transformative Experience. Like others, I only told my mother and a few close friends at the time. In my case, I was fortunate in that it was not preceeded by an accident or life threatening illness, instead it came seemingly out of nowhere one evening. Just like a Near Death Experience, I was enveloped in light, spoke with guides, and felt the ecstatic bliss of unconditional love.

How to Lead a Joyous Life by Susun Weed

| by Susun Weed

I aspire to be a joyous human being. As with most aspirations: It is easier said than done. Easier imagined than put into practice. Easier to search for than to have. I want joy to roll like thunder across the hills and valleys of my life; I want surging winds of joy to carry me through loss and disappointment; I want joy to be an electrical rush that lights up my entire body when I succeed. What does it take to create a joyous existence? Is it possible to experience joy daily, not just in special circumstances?

Excerpt from Raindrops of Love by Eileen Workman

Beloved, I am Life. And I invite you, in this perfect moment, to realize that we—you and I—are one Spirit flowing within, and throughout, the infinite realm of matter, and that our unity has always and ever been so. Although for a while you forgot that we were united, that did not mean we were ever separated. It just rendered you briefly insensible to our eternal connection.

Back to the Mother: The Life of Sacred Music by Kalidas

Rooted in the Bhakti yoga tradition, my music became a way to honor the lives of some of the great beings that has made my life rich and meaningful. Bhakti yoga consists of channeling all of one’s energy to the Divine. The theory is simple: by thinking of the Divine, by contemplating the Divine, we can become Divine. Bhakti yoga sees the different religions as various paths to God. There are infinite paths actually because there are an infinite amount of beings in the universe. In this tradition, all are embraced. Every one of us has the seed of divinity, no matter how deeply it may be buried.

Pure-Incense.com- Temple Grade Incense & Oils

| by Merlian News

Adi-guru Das has been attracted to incense from a very young age and eventually as a monk with the Krishna movement, “I was able to travel in India and seek out better and better incenses. I was later given charge of supplying incense for our London temples and other temples in Europe. What is so special about incense and food that is offered to Krishna is that the commercial element is removed as no-one really wants to offer something to God and cut corners! Therefore you will find that this temple grade incense is of a remarkable quality.”

Life’s Symbols Around Us by Tim Walter

This is not an image you might expect from a life coach. Folks like me are usually found promoting up beat high vibration images of wonder and joy. But to me this old window is symbolic of potential and another stage in life’s journey. I see it as relating to how much more I can change the way I view the world around me, see it with new eyes as it were. A new attitude, new opportunities to help more people find different ways of finding the joy in their own lives…
