Sacred Geometry

“Universal symbolic mirrors of natural laws within us.
Friendly reminders to forgive the dreamer of separation.”

– Bruce Rawles

Imagine being all alone in the dark. Imagine that there is nothing in the universe.
… nothing exists, no stars, no planets, no atoms, no particles, no quantum mechanics, no God particle.

You are floating in nothingness.

 “In the beginning the universe was formless and empty and darkness was on the surface of the deep.”

Spirit gave rise to consciousness. Consciousness could not move up, down, left or right. It had nothing but itself.


And the spirit of the All moved upon the waters.

Consciousness expanded into a perfect sphere around its centre.
The centre of which is everywhere and the circumference nowhere.

This is the first circle (sphere) in the Germ of Life.

In essence, this is the first stage in creation, I have created a space to form Myself. A ‘sphere of influence‘.


I have the gnosis to replicate myself, so I keep my initial sphere intact and move my consciousness to the outer edge of the sphere. The birth of recreation happened at that time.

Consciousness had created the heavens and the earth.

This form is called the vesica piscis. 
In the same way, man begins as a single cell and replicates.

The mind decides that it will go back to exactly one ray and we get the tripod of life that comprises the holy trinity.

This movement and relaxation of consciousness continues until finally on day six the Germ of Life is created.

The Germ of Life is adopted as a symbol that depicts the seven days of creation in which God created life.


Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry elegantly describes phenomena such as the growth of plants, the proportions of the human body, the orbital periods of the planets, light, the structure of crystals, music, etc.

Sacred Geometry also seems to play a key role in a new, emerging post-quantum physics. This new physics provides insight to explain the zero-point field and is a revival of 19th century ether physics.

Ancient geometry is not based on a priori axioms or assumptions. Unlike Euclidean geometry and more recent geometries, the starting point of ancient geometric thought is not a network of intellectual definitions or abstractions, but a meditation on a metaphysical unity. Followed by an attempt to symbolise it visually in a pure, formal order, which stems from this Unity. Ancient geometry begins with one, while modern mathematics and geometry begin with zero.

Oneness, as the perfect symbol of the All, separates itself from within itself and thus creates Two: the ‘self’ and the ‘I’ of the All; the creator-unity and the created multiplicity. Unity is created by sharing itself. 

Our world is composed of geometries found in everything from a slice of orange to the delicate petals of a flower. Sacred Geometry is what shapes and creates the symbols we experience in material form. Here we combine the microcosm into the infinite macrocosm. These symbols in geometry are a gateway to the divine source within each of us, it could even be said that Sacred Geometry is a reflection of our own spirit. It is the ingenious design that creates the holographic blueprint of reality around us.
When we look at Sacred Geometry, we are exploring the deepest core of the universe. It is a universal language that forms the basis for understanding the divine blueprint of the cosmos.

When we work with Sacred Geometry, we gain access to a deeper part of ourselves. 

The symbols are all around us.

it arises the
Seed of Life.

If the circle pattern of
the Germ of Life is repeated 19x,
it arises the
Flower of Life.

The Flower of Life consists of seven main circles in which a triangle grid can be drawn. The triangle grid is a matrix with 37 intersections, 93 line segments and 54 triangles.

The triangle grid contains various three-dimensional shapes, which are represented in an isometric projection. The cube, for example, consists of six faces, each of which is subdivided into 3×3=9 smaller faces.
6×9=54 faces, the same number as the number of triangles in the triangle grid of the Flower of Life.

The cube is also described as the hexahedron and is one of the five regular polyhedra (Platonic solids). All five platonic bodies can be constructed using the triangular grid and thus fit into the Flower of Life.

The number of faces gives the name of the Platonic solids.
Tetra means four, so the figure with four triangular faces is the tetrahedron. The same applies to the hexahedron (six square faces), the octahedron (eight triangular faces), the icosahedron (twenty triangular faces) and the dodecahedron (twelve pentagonal faces).

The following five rules apply to all Platonic solids:
all faces have the same dimensions and size,
all ribs have the same length,
all angles in the figure are the same,
all vertices touch a surrounding sphere,
the bodies are mirror-symmetrical.

The Platonic solids have some remarkable properties. To begin with, they all fit into a sphere. The outer points of the shapes all lie on the surface of a circumscribing circle.

Also, all forms fit perfectly into each other and can be nested perfectly. All shapes have a counterpart, an opposite shape that can be created from the other. For example, the cube has the octahedron as its counterpart. If we take the centres of the faces of a cube and connect these points with lines, an octahedron is created.

The same process can be reversed to create a cube from an octahedron. Only the tetrahedron knows itself as a counterpart. The dodecahedron and icosahedron are also counterparts of each other. Every line, plane and angle in a Platonic solid is identical to every other line, plane or angle of the same shape. In other words, Platonic solids are extremely symmetrical.

The five Platonic solids are geometric shapes that are said to act as a template from which all life springs. These five structures are found in minerals and organic life forms, sound, music, language, etc. The Greeks taught that these five solids were the core patterns of physical creation. Four of the solids were seen as the archetypal patterns behind the four elements of fire, earth, air and water, while the fifth was seen as the pattern behind the life force itself, the ether.
According to Plato, ether, also spelled æther, and also called quintessence, is the material that fills the space of the universe above the earthly sphere.

Cube of Metatron

The Flower of Life also contains the geometrical basis for the delineation of a special shape. If you draw a line from the centre of each sphere to the centre of every other sphere, you get the Metatron’s Cube.

We find the platonic geometric forms twice in Metatron’s cube.

Archangel Metatron is considered in esoteric literature as the ‘voice of God’. And is one of the highest archangels. He is depicted in ancient texts with the image of the cube bearing his name, which is displayed on his chest or hovers around him. The cube of Metatron is also considered a holy glyph.

Star-tetrahedron or MerKaBa

The first platonic solid, the tetrahedron, is made up of four triangles. When two opposites of these are combined, the Star tetrahedron is created. The triangle with the top up is oriented towards spirit and the triangle with the top down is oriented towards matter. When the opposing triangles move towards each other they meet in the soul. The star-tetrahedron is also described as the MerKaBa (in the third dimension). The core of the star-tetrahedron is the octahedron. The octahedron is the MerKaBa in the fourth dimension.

The MerKaBa is the symbol of an energetic body. The MerKaBa consists of three parts: Mer, Ka and Ba and comprises the trinity of the body, the soul and the spirit. The Ba is the physical body, the Ka is the Light Body and Mer is an all-embracing light field.
The physical body is a vehicle for moving in the three-dimensional world. That physical body is a replica of an etheric mould, for the physical body is crystallised from the light body, as a form of frozen light. The light body is the body of the soul, which moves in the ether. The Mer is a connecting field of light, which is an all-embracing universal matrix, represented by the Flower of Life. The Merkaba takes care of the alignment of the physical body with the light body. Therefore it is important to consciously integrate the light body with the physical body, by tuning in to the MerKaBa.

Star-tetrahedron or MerKaBa fractal

The star-tetrahedron is a powerful symbol because it connects heaven and earth as one. It symbolises the fusion of two points, two worlds. The spiritual world aligning itself with the earthly plane. It is also the symbol of the Heart Chakra which represents the connecting bridge between the lower and higher chakras.

The Flower of Life is created by arranging circles around each other. When the merkaba is rotated around a vertex, a figure is created in which the merkaba can be found again in large. The MerKaBa fractal.


Another symbol derived from the Flower of Life is the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is the symbol of Kabbalah in Jewish mysticism.                            
Thus, one can see the geometric beauty and symmetry hidden in all these symbols and how they all originate from a progression of the Germ of Life.

Kabbala fractal

At first glance, the Tree of Life appears to be a flat figure, but it is spatial and contains three of the platonic bodies: the octahedron, hexahedron and tetrahedron.

If we rotate the Tree of Life in the same way as the merkaba, a figure similar to a snowflake is created. There are six Trees of Life drawn in this figure.


The Flower of Life consists of several circles that are interconnected. These circles represent a unity. Some of the circles of the Flower of Life appear to be cut off by the two outer circles, but these continue beyond the figure into an infinite field. The lotus flower is the centre of the flower of life, with all its parts being equal to the whole.

Isotropic vector matrix

Combining the fractal of the MerKaBa and the Kabbalah creates a spatial figure that was described by Richard Buckminster Fuller as the Isotropic Vector Matrix. This matrix consists of 8×8=64 small tetrahedrons and is also referred to as the 64 tetrahedron matrix.

Fundamental to the cosmic phenomena we can observe (photonic and atomic radiation), conceptually determine that they exist (e.g. Dark Matter/Energy), and through direct experience (consciousness itself) is a unified field of infinite energy and creative potential. Commonly known as the zero-point field or vacuum of space (or more recently called plenum, meaning ‘fullness’), this is the source state that precedes manifest reality (both physical and metaphysical). This unified field has a specific geometry or cosmometry, in which all energetic radiation, gravitation, magnetism, pressure, thought, feeling, etc. dissolve into a state of perfect and absolute balance – zero difference and fluctuation. The name of this geometric pattern is the Isotropic Vector Matrix. Isotropic means ‘all the same’. Vector means ‘energy line’. Matrix means ‘pattern of energy lines’. It is a pattern of energy lines that are the same everywhere.

MerKaBa matrix

The Isotropic Vector Matrix also shows the MerKaBa in a large format.

The Vector Equilibrum

The core of the Isotropic Vector Matrix is formed by the Vector Equilibrum. The Vector Equilibrum contains twelve points, all equidistant from a central point.

It is a geometric shape in which all vectors are of equal length. This is from the centre to the perimeter of the vertices, and the edges (vectors) that connect all these vertices. It has the same shape as a cuboctahedron.


The geometrical figures that emerge from the flower of life are so complex that we can hardly comprehend them intellectually. It is also not necessary to understand it all intellectually, for this symbolic language works in a different way.

Sacred Geometry is the key to a dimensional lock that opens when we cast our eyes upon it. Looking at the images of Sacred Geometry can thus initiate an energetic process of healing.

The Vector Equilibrium represents the ultimate and perfect state in which the movement of energy arrives at a state of absolute equilibrium, and is therefore absolute silence, nothingness.

Torus & V.E.

It is conceptually the geometry of what we call the zero point or unified field. The unified field is pure potential and contains an infinite amount of energy.


The torus is an important geometrical three-dimensional form because the torus is the building block of matter in the new ether science. 
It is actually a sphere that is curled inwards from above and below in such a way that a hole is created in the middle.
We can best compare the torus with a donut or an apple. The torus is also created by rotating the genesis pattern 360 degrees around its centre. 

Golden ratio

An important form in Sacred Geometry is the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratio is a special ratio which is indicated by the Greek letter Ф, called Phi.  Ф = ½ * √5 + ½ = 1.618033988749894848204586834365638117720309180 ….
Phi is, just like the number Pi, an irrational number. This means that you cannot calculate its value exactly, you can only approximate it. 
When the Phi ratio is applied to a rectangle, we speak of a Golden rectangle. The Golden rectangle can be used to create a spiral, the Golden Spiral.
The Golden Section spiral can be continued indefinitely in both the inward and outward directions, becoming smaller and smaller as it spirals inward and larger and larger as it spirals outward.
The Golden Ratio is a unique ratio, namely: the ratio of the whole to the larger part is the same as the ratio of the larger part to the smaller part. As such, it symbolically connects each new generation to its ancestors, preserving the continuity of the relationship, a means of following up its lineage.

Fibonacci spiral

A variant of the Golden section spiral is the Fibonaccis spiral. The difference with the Golden section spiral is that this spiral does not start infinitely small, but starts with a Golden rectangle of which one side has the length 1 and the other side the sum of the two previous numbers. Gradually, when the Fibonacci spiral spirals outwards, there will be hardly any noticeable difference between the true Golden section spiral and the Fibonacci spiral. 
The Fibonaccis spiral is based on the progression of the Fibonacci series. Leonardo Fibonacci (1175 AD), a great mathematician from the Middle Ages discovered the Fibonacci series named after him by studying nature. By studying the growth of a rabbit population and the growth of leaves and petals, he discovered a certain mathematical sequence: 
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 etc.
Each number in the sequence is the sum of the two previous numbers starting with the number 1. The Fibonacci sequence diverges to the Golden Ratio when we divide two consecutive numbers in the sequence.
1/1 = 1 
2/1 = 2,0 
3/2 = 1,5 
5/3 = 1,667 
8/5 = 1,60 

144/89 = 1,618

So the Fibonacci sequence diverges towards Phi (Ф) but never reaches it because it is an irrational or transcendental number. Fibonacci spirals and Golden Ratio occur everywhere in the universe. The spiral is the natural flow form of water. It is also the natural flow of air in tornadoes and hurricanes. A good example of a Fibonacci spiral in nature is the Nautilus shell.  The Golden Ratio is found numerous times in the human body, in the proportions of bones and the length of arms and legs, for example. The Golden Ratio is also the ratio of the distance from the navel to the toe and from the navel to the crown.


In ‘normal’ crystals, atoms are arranged regularly and periodically. The latter means that they have a certain geometric structure and that structure repeats itself with a certain symmetry. For example, there are crystals with a two-, three-, four- or sixfold symmetry. This means that the position of the crystals when you turn them 180 degrees around their axis is indistinguishable from the position the crystals were in before turning.

In 1984, researcher Dan Shechtman created a quasicrystal in a laboratory. Quasicrystals are crystals that consist of atoms with an apparently regular, but in reality aperiodic structure. The latter means that their organisation changes as they grow.

So quasicrystals are regular patterns that do not repeat themselves. They have everything to do with the well-known ‘Fibonacci sequence’, in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. The ratio between two of these numbers comes closer and closer to the Golden Ratio, which occurs frequently in nature.

The Ho-Mg-Zn quasicrystal. The pentagon-shaped surfaces show that it is a quasicrystal with 5-fold rotational symmetry.

Quasi-crystal patterns are similar to Penrose mosaics, the so-called ‘aperiodic mosaics’ made of two different tiles. Such a pattern is regular, but never repeats itself.

In the thirteenth century, Islamic artists were already making tile patterns from five different tiles. They can be seen, for instance, in the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. (See also Islam Geometry)

In 2009, a quasicrystal was found for the first time in nature in the east of Russia. The new mineral was discovered more specifically in the Khatyrka meteorite. It consists of aluminium, copper and iron and under the electron microscope it displays a neat tenfold symmetrical pattern. So it is not terrestrial.
