Flower of Life Origins

The exact origins of the flower of life reside in many stories and tales. The flower of life can be found in ancient Egyptian art, as well as in eastern religious traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. In more recent times, the symbol has been adopted by the New Age movement as a symbol of peace and harmony. However, if you gaze upon the wonders of the natural world around you, you can see evidence of this timeless symbol in every flower, shell, and pattern. 

There are various explanations on what the Flower of Life symbolizes, however they all interconnect-no pun 🙂 

First, the symbol is said to dictate how all life criss crosses into one another. Another explanation sheds light on it representing the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Yet, another story is that it symbolizes the balance between male and female energy. 

The Seed of Life

There are said to be 144 seeds of life in the flower of life. The number is significant because it is also said to be the number of petals on a lotus flower, which is a symbol of enlightenment. There is also said to be a hidden 13th seed of life within the flower, which represents the Christ consciousness or God-realization.

The seed of life is a sacred geometry symbol that represents the beginning of all creation. It is made up of seven interlocking circles, which represent the seven days of creation. The seed of life is often used as a symbol of fertility and new beginnings.

The flower of life is seen as a symbol of rebirth and regeneration and is often used in meditation and visualization practices.

Platonic Solids

The platonic solids are a special class of geometric shapes that have been studied since ancient times. They are named after the Greek philosopher Plato, who described them in his work the Timaeus. The platonic solids are the only shapes that can be evenly divided into identical faces by flat planes. There are only five platonic solids: the tetrahedron, hexahedron (cube), octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. Each of these shapes has a special significance and is often associated with different elements, planets, or energies. The platonic solids are also believed by some to be a symbol of the universe itself.

The flower of life and the platonic solids are just two of the many symbols that have been used throughout history to represent the mystery of existence. There is still much we do not understand about the universe and our place within it. But these symbols remind us that there is order and beauty in the chaos, and that we are all connected in ways we may not even realize.
