For all those averse to numbers, mathematical terms and geometry-related topics, allow us to allay your fears right away. Sacred geometry is everything our teachers never showed us about math and we can't really blame them either. After all, if someone told you that there might be a mathematical language of sorts--the language of light as some refer to it--that the entire universe and all of life follows you would have called him insane.
Believe it or not, the idea that God had created an entire universe according to a specific geometric pattern has ancient origins. For example: Plutarch attributed the saying 'God geomterizes continually' to Plato. But most now adhere to Stephen Skinner's belief which says that sacred geometry has its roots in the study of nature and the mathematical laws that work within it.
Think about it. Within nature itself, we've found many patterns, designs and structures which invariably seem to follow certain geometrical archetypes. These specific designs tend to reveal vibrational resonances of the natural object in question. What makes the whole study so interesting though is geometry's underlying principle of oneness--an inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is probably this principle of oneness that permeates through this particular geometry which led to the added prefix of 'Sacred.'
Some better known concepts that have found their way into sacred geometry include the fibonacci sequence, phi and the golden ration. Even the shape of the human eye is a Vesica Piscis! Then comes the spirals, dimensionality, fractal patterns and 'flower of life' which are a tad intensive to get into right now but hopefully, you get our drift.
This is where we'll stop in our brief introduction to the same but if you found sacred geometry as intriguing as we did, click here or here for more information.
