Seed of Life - A Universal Symbol
The Seed of Life is a symbol for the seven
days of creation
. It is found in all major
religions and can be seen in many sites e.g. Synagogues, churches,
Kabbalah prayer books, and of course, the ancient Osirian temple
in Abydos Egypt, the source of all the major religions and
The Seed of Life is part of a group of shapes categorized as part
of Sacred Geometry. Those shapes are - the circle, Vesica Pisces
, Flower of Life
, Fruit of Life
and Metatron's Cube
Through its connection to these symbols, the seed of life is also
related to the Platonic
The Seed of Life is a symbol of blessing and protection
passed through generations; it contains the secret of the seven
days of the creation. It is a common ornament for fertility
for women during pregnancy or trying to Conceive.
Creating the Seed of Life
In the beginning, the first step was the creation of the
Octahedron. The next step was to spin the shape on its axes. In
this way, a sphere is formed (see diagram 7). Bear in mind that
the creator's consciousness exists within the Sphere, and the only
thing that really exists is the membrane of the sphere itself.
The next thing the creator's consciousness did was to go to the
outside surface of the sphere, (the old testament refers to "the spirit of the Creator floating
upon the face of the waters
") and creating another using
the same process of creating an octahedron and turning it into a
sphere. By creating the second sphere the Almighty actually created light
. In projecting
another converted octahedron into a sphere on the surface of the
first sphere, you will get the image of two circles crossing each
other in their centers, a shape known as Vesica Pisces
7a). This pattern is a geometrical formula which represents the
electromagnetic spectrum of light (for further information how
this can be done, check out Drunvalo Melchizedek's book "The Ancient Secret of The Flower of
") and the first thing that God created was
light - "Let
there be light
In continuing to duplicate the spheres and creating further Vesica Pisces
you will see
many aspects of creation driven out of the geometrical structures,
emerging out from the vortex motion by this continuous creation of
more Vesica Pisces. The continuation of the creation process can
be seen in diagrams 7b to 7f.
Diagram 7b being day two of the creation.
Diagram 7c being day three of the creation.
Diagram 7d being day four of the creation.
Diagram 7e being day five of the creation.
Diagram 7f being day six of the creation.
Note that here the seven day creation process ends. The Seed of Life
is fully formed
on the "SHABBAT
the day of rest. The first vortex is completed and the seed which
contains the blue print of the universe is fully formed.
Seed of life - The Origin of all
The Seed of Life
stage before the shape known as the Flower of Life
produces the "Fruit of Life". The Fruit of life is the base for
the Metatron's Cube which holds the Platonic Solids in it. The
platonic solids are said to be the building blocks of the universe
thus bringing us back to the seed of life as the source.
Seed of Life and Hebrew Alphabet
In the 13th Century, a Cabalist's group from France succeeded,
through geometric interpretation, to divide the entire Hebrew
alphabet in its correct order using the Seed of Life. The
resulting alphabet was in fact remarkably similar to that of the
Religious sage Rashi who wrote his commentaries on the Old
Testament at that time in France.
