The Significance

Sacred Geometry reveals the harmonic energy patterns by which nature creates and designs. This symbol called the “Flower of Life” or “life’s flower”consists of 19 overlapping and interconnected circles. It always consists of 19 circles – no more and no less.

The Flower of Life originates in one circle and all other circles are built up around that. That means you begin by drawing one circle and then continue drawing all the other circles around it. This symbol of the Flower of Life belongs to Sacred Geometry which believes that all life is part of a divine, geometric plan. All structures known to us are following this plan. Evidently, the Flower of Life is a very important geometric symbol.

Considering that the oldest representation of the flower of life is about 5000 years old and that the representation of this geometric ornament fascinates mankind to this day and does not fall into oblivion, this can only be explained by its mystic force of attraction and universal laws.

Many see in the Flower of Life a symbol that represents or depicts the cycle of creation. This symbol shows that all life and consciousness arises from one source (this being the first circle).

The next 6 circles are identical with the cell division process. Therefore, the Flower of Life is seen as a model of God’s Creation. The name “Flower of Life” stems not from a flower imagery but from the cycle of a fruit tree.

When observing this cycle we can see that the tree grows flower buds and these eventually transform into fruit (pear, cherry and so on). The fruit carries the seed within and when the fruit falls on the ground these seeds eventually create new trees. This is the cycle which turns from tree to flower to fruit and tree again and reveals the miracle of life.

What it means to Agape East

Recognize Yourself.

The spiritual significance of the flower of life can be intensively experienced in monasteries or temples. In these places, where you are in quiet meditation, you can feel the connection with the unique source of being. You can see where your path goes, and above all, who you are. Life is always flowing and you are a part of it. If you know the spiritual meaning of the flower of life, then it can possibility lead you to divine inspiration.

Everyone reacts differently when looking at the flower of life. Particularly sensitive people can feel the powerful vibrations that strengthen your energy fields. At the same time, they can serve as an aid for meditation and spread inner harmony. If you want to be accompanied by its positive energies throughout the day, it is a good idea to carry the flower of life in the form of a chain or other pieces of jewelry.

If you look more closely at the structure of the flower of life, you will find that the geometrical forms indicate natural laws. The outer circle or ring symbolizes the cycle of life and is linked to cell division, the origin of life. The next ring, also called fish-bubble, develops from the first one. Through the clashing and intersection of the circles the real creation arises and a third being shows up.

The meaning of the third circle of the flower of life can be interpreted quite differently. This way you can see the circle of life from birth to life to death.  But also the individual life sections, starting with the past, the present and the future, can also be found. After the third circle the fourth and fifth join, which could reflect the four elements or the five fingers of the hand. There are countless interpretations of the meaning of the flower of life, but all have one thing in common: the inner connection of life and spirit as part of the infinite vastness of the universe.
