The Flower of Life symbol has a vast number of hidden potentials available within it. One needs an open mind and infinite humility in order to uncover its secrets. When used with humility, respect, and open mindedness, the FOL symbol can serve you for a lifetime as a mirror into which you can view your limitless potentials.
From the models within it, the Flower of Life symbol has the ability to demonstrate how all things come from one source and are intimately and permanently woven together. When this is experienced, it has a profound effect on an individual. But first, one must learn to open one of the windows of the Flower of Life and peer inside.
To open these windows of understanding, one needs some tools to “dig” the information out of the unknown. These tools come in the form of templates. A template is like the “sifting screen” an archaeologist uses to separate soil from important artifacts hidden within the earth. Each template or sifting screen is especially useful for a particular branch of knowledge. Some templates can be used for more than one discovery, while others have to be used in conjunction with two or more templates in order to open an additional window of information.
The Flower of Life symbol is being released once again into the consciousness of humankind. This helps to give us a model of unity amongst diversity, which we so desperately need to heal the fracturing reality we see around us. It is time to surrender to the unity that surrounds us. Our inherent unity was once unseen and ignored, but now we have the understanding, templates, and tools to truly see its existence and embrace this unity in our lives.
To open a window into the realm of the Flower of Life symbol, we need a starting point. This starting point will uncover one of many possible entrances to the esoteric world within this symbol. Let us begin by using a Cascading Circular Template to reveal the hidden geometry within the Flower of Life symbol.
The Cascading Circular Template is one of the most commonly used templates. It is the basis for additional templates that take the seeker even deeper into the esoteric meaning of the Flower of Life. The Cascading Circular Template can be created by the use of a compass with an attached pencil. Use the same size diameter for all of the circles. Begin by using your compass and drawing one circle with approximately a two-inch diameter. See figure below.
Please note that each line, angle, or circle has a wealth of knowledge associated with it. Sacred geometry relates to proportions and relationships. It is not just arbitrary lines on a page.
Once you have drawn the first circle, mark a dot at any point on the circle. Center your compass on that point and draw another complete circle. See figure below.
The proportion created by these intersecting two circles is called a Vesica Pisces. This is one of the simplest sacred geometry forms. It has been depicted around the world at sacred sites, most notably at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury, England.
Find a point at which the second circle crossed over the first circle and place your compass there to create a third circle. (It doesn’t matter if you choose the upper or lower point). In our case we will use the upper crossing point. See figure below.
Create the fourth circle in the same manner as the previous circles at the newest crossing point. See figure below.
Continue on by creating the fifth, sixth and finally the seventh circle. See figures below.
Upon completing the 7th circle, you will be at the Seed of Life stage or the Genesis Pattern. This stage creates a tube torus. See figure below.
To unfold more of the template we must continue on to the next stage.
To continue on to the next stage in the development of the Flower of Life symbol called the “Egg of Life,” place your compass point upon the outer crossing points of the circles and draw the same size circle at each of the six places. See figure below.
After drawing these 6 new circles, you can erase the previous 6 circles. This would expose a template that is necessary to view a collection of spheres labeled the Egg of Life. See figure below.
The Egg of Life is significant because this portion of the template allows us to see the embryonic stages of life. (This is explained more fully in the workshop).
Up until now we have been exploring female geometry, which is based on spheres. This particular configuration of spheres (the Egg of Life) is needed to reveal the first male (or angular) geometrical forms. These particular male geometric configurations are categorized as the tetrahedron, cube, and the star tetrahedron. See figure below
As you will see in my Igniting Your Inner Lightcourse, this process of evolving geometry can be seen as a metaphor that applies to Creation or Genesis. It is interesting to note that in this explanation of Genesis/Creation, the female geometry comes before the male geometry. In fact, the male geometry is dependent upon the female. It is from the female that the building blocks of physical reality are born.
Continuing to the next stage in the development of the Flower of Life symbol, place your compass point upon the outer crossing points of the outer circles and draw the same size circle at each of these six places. See figure below.
To get to the “Fruit of Life” pattern, draw one more set of outer circles at the outer circle crossing points and complete the incomplete circles. See figure below.
At this stage, a new template emerges. This template is called the Fruit of Life stage. The Fruit of Life stage is crucial for mapping out the set of patterns associated with Metatron’s Cube. See figures below.
“Metatron’s Cube” is a template that delineates the Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are five structures that are crucial because they are the building blocks of organic life. These five structures are found in minerals, animated and organic life forms, sound, music, language, etc.
