Sacred Geometry means literally “the Sacred Measure of the Earth.” It has been taught as a powerful, practical spiritual science to closed groups of Initiates in every great spiritual tradition of the world. Sacred Geometry holds the keys to how non-physical Spirit creates the manifest world through specific patterns, each of which creates specific functions of Life or Consciousness. Sacred Geometry provides a solid foundation for both Scientific and Spiritual Knowledge.
Every pattern in Sacred Geometry is like a “Letter” in a “Divine Alphabet”; every pattern creates a specific function of Life and Consciousness. We can learn to read these “Letters” (patterns) and then ‘spell words’ with these divine creative forms. In other words, we learn to read in the book of nature and use spirit’s own language of sacred geometry to create optimal effects in any work we undertake.
Sacred Geometry allows us to directly understand the “geometric coding system” that Spirit uses to manifest all Life and Consciousness. It gives us vital insight into the foundations of both spirit and matter, insights which can be applied in both spiritual and scientific pursuits. It also allows us to heal the painful split between spirituality and rational, scientific understanding which so afflicts our modern society and our own soul life. Sacred Geometry has been taught for millenia to Spiritual Initiates in multiple spiritual traditions around the world for a very good reason: it can be applied to transform our own life energy, consciousness, and the world around us in the most beneficial ways possible. In fact, one reason that the previously secret teachings of Sacred Geometry are now being made publicly available (by multiple spiritual traditions) is so that the knowledge can be applied to help heal ourselves and our planet.
Sacred geometry may be understood as a worldview of pattern recognition, a complex system of hallowed attribution and signification that may subsume religious and cultural values to the fundamental structures and relationships of such complexes as space, time and form. According to this discipline, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred: for by contemplating and communing with them one is thereby contemplating the Mysterium Magnum, the patterning relationships of the Great Design. By studying the nature of these patterns, forms and relationships and their manifold intra- and inter connectivity one may gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic and mystical continuum. That is, the laws and lore of the Universe.
The Platonic Solids
These five Platonic solids are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations. These are the only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. They are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs. The aesthetic beauty and symmetry of the Platonic solids have made them a favorite subject of geometers for thousands of years. They are named after the ancient Greek philosopher Plato who theorized that the classical elements were constructed from the regular solids. To the Greeks, these solids symbolized fire, earth, air, spirit (or ether) and water. The Platonic solids are also called “cosmic figures” and are the basic modules for Sacred Geometry.
