The Meaning Of The Flower Of Life:
The Flower of Life is a significant sacred geometric shape. It represents the fundamental forms of space and time and demonstrates how all things come from one source and are intimately and permanently woven together.
It holds many symbolic significances. In the Qabalah, it is the Tree of Life. It is enlightenment through sacred geometry and the underlying structure of all life. It is thought to be the connection with the universe on a soul level, a portal to other dimensions and worlds, and aligns your energies to a higher vibration.
It is widely used in talismans and magic charms and is considered to channel the magic energy of creation which helps us get closer to creation. It is often used for meditation.
This is an ancient symbol, found in many manuscripts, religious buildings, goblets, textiles, and incorporated into much art and jewellery.
The oldest known example of the Flower of Life is found in the Temple of Osiris, at Abydos in Egypt. This is 3000 years old.
Ancient examples can also be found in Phoenician, Assyrian, Indian, Asian, Middle eastern and medieval art.
Further examples of the symbol are in the Forbidden City in China, ancient synagogues in the Galilee and in Mesada, temples in Japan, and in the Harimandir Sahib in India.
