The study of sacred geometry involves the observation of highly intelligent universal patterns that construct the foundations within everything in reality and the universe. In creation, there exists a multitude of shapes and numbers partly recognised as the ‘divine proportion’. These patterns are no accident, and they are presented with such accuracy that they could only be the workings of something much greater: the result of the omnipotent, most powerful and greatly intelligent.
Physicists send probes into space, historians attempt to piece together scattered fragments from the past and botanists study nature’s secrets. It is agreed that life, if nothing else, is endlessly mysterious. There exists a variety of different forms and rhythms; they capture patterns, relationships and tell-tale signs towards the very nature of existence. Certain ratios and shapes find themselves repeating throughout the universe, and these geometric shapes and figures seem to radiate intense positivity.
The evidence and research suggest that these geometrical/mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportions that are found in music, nature, the human body, light and cosmology can be understood as a complex system of inter-dimensional symbols and structures leading beyond space, time and form. According to this view, these basic patterns of existence are perceived as being sacred. It unites the mind and the heart, spirit and matter, science and spirituality. The ancients knew that these patterns were codes symbolic of your own inner realm and that the experience of sacred geometry was essential to the education of the soul.
By connecting and studying the nature of the patterns form and relationship to all life, one may contemplate the great mysteries and mind-blowing design of the universe, encouraging an expanded view on the laws that fabricate your very existence. The purpose of this section is to deliver a much greater realisation and enhance your awareness of the laws of life and the intricately designed mathematical base to all creation. This goes to proves that human existence is no accident and that humans are a product of something beautiful and much greater than what the powers that be have led the world to believe.
Sacred Geometry in Nature
The geometric shapes, spirals numbers and evidence of the divine proportion are embedded within all aspects of nature. Their symmetry, beauty and mathematical preciseness can direct one towards a relationship of balance, harmony and symmetry that is quite uncanny. The strands of your DNA, the cornea of our eye, snowflakes, pinecones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air you breathe and all life forms, as we know them, emerge out of timeless geometric codes. Below are some examples of this pattern within nature.
The head of a flower is made up of small seeds which are produced at the centre, and then migrate towards the outside to fill eventually all the space (as for the sunflower but on a much smaller level). Each new seed appears at a certain angle in relation to the preceding one. For example, if the angle is 90 degrees, that is 1/4 of a turn. Sunflowers, which have opposing spirals of seeds, utilise the Fibonacci sequence to distribute most efficiently their seeds in the most compact space.
The chambered nautilus is a living fossil that has survived in earth's oceans for the last 500 million years. A cross-section of the shell of the nautilus will show the cycles of its growth as a series of chambers arranged in a precise olden mean spiral. The Golden Mean is represented by Fibonacci, the Greek letter phi (with the decimal representation of 1.6180...) is one of those mysterious natural numbers that seems to arise out of the basic structure of the cosmos. Below is a simple red cabbage that has been cut in half displaying the spiral pattern from its root which it took form. Every vegetable and plant has a mathematical pattern basis it grows into; the proportion remains consistent throughout and is infinite in nature. This pattern is known as the Fibonacci ratio.
The aloe Vera plant and acorn are seen as both following and display classic Fibonacci structure. Spiralling outwards from the source, again infinite in nature, this outward pattern is represented by the number 9, always expanding never contracting, this is the nature of the universe itself manifested into plant form—everything is interconnected and alive!
It is the opinion of many that this anomaly is evidence of the universal creator showing the uniqueness of planet earth in relationship to the whole cosmos. It also accomplishes another fact, for this ‘anomaly’ shatters the big bang and nebular hypothesis; for if all the planets formed from a whirling cloud of dust and atoms, this feature would not be present. To think that the timings of the revolutions of the planets around the sun correlates with the arrangement of leaves around stems on plants is also an amazing phenomenon.
The Fibonacci Sequence
There is a special numerical ratio that can be related to the proportions of everything, from nature’s smallest building blocks, such as atoms, to the most advanced patterns in the universe, such as unimaginably large celestial bodies.
The Fibonacci numbering sequence is a pattern discovered around A.D. 1200 by Leonardo Pisa [i](historically known as Fibonacci). The proportion is derived from something known as the Fibonacci sequence. An arrangement of numbers wherein each succeeding term is simply the sum of the two preceding terms (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc.)
The Fibonacci sequence forms the basis for the Golden Ratio 1.618 (the division of the two preceding terms) a proportion that reoccurs with amazing consistency throughout the natural world. The Fibonacci sequence, also known as the Golden Mean, Phi, or the divine proportion, has fuelled the imagination of artists, mystics and mathematicians for centuries.

‘The spiral of creation is not static. It is a living, evolving, emergent system of extreme creativity. Seek out those fine souls who are also on the inner journey. Share, support, and learn from each other. Be the infinite explorer.’~ Neil Kramer[i]
Drawing a golden spiral of Fibonacci on paper only begins to describe the infinite pattern that nature creates, one that embodies the dynamic principles of regeneration and whose imprint in life is of a symmetrical and balanced growth. Life is either expanding, growing, being drawn out, or its diminishing, dissolving, or collapsing. Seeing the beauty of an unfolding leaf or the patterning of petals in a rose, one immediately recognises the perfect and delicate spiral.
Hurricane Bonnie approaching the eastern seaboard of the USA on August 15, 1998. The spiralling cloud was twice as tall as Mount Everest. Mathematicians call the golden spiral’s eye an ‘asymptote’, a place always approached but never reached. The calm eye of a storm is the centre of gravity around which wind and water are expanding and contracting, around which the whole storm is balanced. The eye of every spiral is a dynamic place where all opposites meet and where life and death are one phenomenon. All the forces that create growth and keep it in balance are at work in the eye, the source.
Geometry in the Human Body
As humans are connected with nature and synchronise with the biorhythms of the earth, the sacred pattern also creates the foundations for which your body adheres to and takes form from. Nature has designed the human body so that its members (arms, legs etc.) are duly proportioned to the frame as a whole.
Below is an interesting drawing from Leonardo Da Vinci. What he is showing in this sketch is how the human body ‘squares the circle’. He inscribed the human body into a circle and a square, the two figures considered images of mathematical perfection.
When man stretches his arms and holds them horizontally, man’s body will perfectly fit into the square. On the other hand, when he spreads his legs and raises his arms as in the sketch, man’s body can be perfectly circumscribed by a circle. The circumference of the square ‘equals’ that of the circle. Hermetic tradition tells us that the human body can be regarded as a blueprint for the universe by means of all the ratios that are found within the body.
The cochlea inside a human ear is encased within a hard shell and filled with liquid. Around the central column is a rail of sensitive hairs that decrease in thickness as the column winds upward.
Sound vibrations enter the whirlpool of the outer ear and tap at the cochlea’s base, travelling in waves up and around the inner liquid. It’s two and three quarter spiral turns allow humans to hear approximately ten octaves of sound. Other mammals have different numbers of turns explaining why they can hear different frequencies of sound.
Sacred Geometrical Imagery and the Flower of Life
Through consciously engaging with the geometries, you can introduce healthy working systems into your reality. The more you understand universal law the more you can apply the harmony that is apparent in nature as a more powerful force in your own life.
The geometries can also be a great synthesiser of the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The rational, analytical aspects of the patterns are processed through the left hemisphere, whereas the visual beauty and profound implications are processed through the right, therefore implementing whole brain consciousness and expanded awareness.
It is a gradual process but when used in a mindful and purposeful way the vibrational patterns of the geometries generate a resonance that can have a calming and transformative effect right down to the level of your RNA/DNA. Currently humans use only 3% of the current 2-strand DNA.According to some esoteric teachings, however, the original divine blueprint of human DNA contains an additional eleven etheric strands, which are fused together and contained within the two perceptible strands.

The below image, the flower of life, is the modern name given to the ancient geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly spaced, overlapping circles. It is considered by many to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. Found in the palace of an Assyrian King, the oldest flower of life design dates back to 645 BC. If you want to learn more about sacred geometry, Google Secrets in plain sight by Scott Onstott[i].
Below, to the left is an image of an embryo in the womb taking spiral form outwardly from the cellular structure of the third embryonic division which also represents the flower of life. To the right is an X-ray image of a left hand, you can see the mathematical principle representing the Fibonacci ratio. (1,2,3,5,8) this pattern is evident within all the body’s major bone and DNA structure.
