[The Flower of Life] is the source of all language. It’s the primal language of the universe, pure shape and proportion. –Drunvalo Melchisedek, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life
The Flower of Life (also known as the Genesis Pattern, the Language of Silence and the Language of Light) is a geometrical shape composed of an overlapping circles grid. This grid is a geometric pattern of evenly spaced repeating, overlapping circles of equal radii in two-dimensional space.
The spheres in the Flower of Life are arranged in place to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry, similar to a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
For many, the geometric pattern of the Flower of Life represents the essential concept of quantum physics. It is believed by many metaphysical traditions to be the first completed energetic life form God created. It is widely considered to be the sacred geometry pictograph forming the foundational tenets of ancient religious and philosophical sages.
It is widely conjectured that this pattern depicts the fundamental forms of space and time and many scientifically-rooted philosophical groups conclude it to be the veritable foundation of the universe.
There are a number of present day physicists who have resolved quantum theory mathematics to the same geometry as the Flower of Life.
Other sacred geometry forms can be identified within the Flower of Life. The image of the Tree of Life is nested inside it and so is the vesica piscis (formed when the centers of two equal radius circles are placed on each other’s circumferences). Every line in the Tree of Life measures out to either the length or the width of a vesica piscis in the Flower of Life.
Leonardo DaVinci was very interested in the Flower of Life and studied its form and mathematical properties. He was intrigued by the ways in which the Flower of Life connected to physical reality as well as to consciousness. Da Vinci was known for using the Golden Ratio of Phi in his artwork, also known as the Fibonacci Spiral which is itself derived from the Flower of Life pattern.
At first glance, the Flower of Life appears to be rather simple, but students of sacred geometry find there is a much deeper meaning behind its design. The 'Fruit of Life’ symbol composed of 13 circles is also nested inside the Flower of Life and it is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the starting point for the design of every atom, molecular structure, and life form in existence.
Many postulate that understanding the Flower of Life can help us to understand how the universe works. Sacred geometry ascribes symbolic and sacred meanings to certain geometric shapes and proportions and the Flower of Life certainly provides a basis for such contemplation.
Perhaps it can be said that the Flower of Life is regarded as a source of knowledge to everything that exists where each of the circles contained within it explains another aspect of reality.
Many scientists drill down even more specifically believing that all linguistic languages can be mapped from the sacred geometry of the Flower of Life form. It is their perception that the Flower of Life visually shows that language is vibration.
Today, the Flower of Life is used as a focus both for study and meditation. It is a symbol connecting all individual souls into the web of life. A product of higher intelligence, consciousness and vibration, all objects and creatures in our tangible world are believed to have emerged from it.
PHYTO5 energetic skincare has adopted the symbol of the Flower of Life to visually depict the quantum nature of its new generation skincare launching this Fall.
