Here are some simple and fun ways to manifest your desires, inspire your creativity, and work your magic with sacred geometry.
Everything – from the movement of the cosmos to the dance of a falling leaf to the inner workings of an atom – possesses a harmonious and measurable structure.
So it’s not hard to see why so many ancient cultures attributed magical and spiritual symbolism to geometric patterns. Pyramids, spirals, mandalas, crosses and stars comprise just a small sampling of the sacred shapes employed by spiritual systems across the globe.
So, sacred geometry: cool concept, right? But, um…what do you, well, do with it? Here are 6 ideas.
1. Restructure Patterns with the Flower of Life
The flower of life (pictured) is a geometric pattern of intersecting circles that may continue infinitely in all directions. It can be visualized within anything (physical, energetic, or situational) in order to create a stronger, healthier, more coherent, and more harmonious structure. Also, because it’s infinitely expansive, it can be employed to expand projects or multiply wealth. Simply visualize the pattern filling anything you choose.
2. Eat a Cinnamon Roll
Whirlpools, tornados, galaxies, seashells, and sunflowers: what do they all have in common? They – like so many other beautiful and powerful natural entities – possess a spiraling shape. (The sunflower’s seeds appear in a spiraling pattern at their center.) It’s no wonder that the spiral has been seen as one of the most powerful sacred geometrical shapes, and associated with such spiritual big guys as the Goddess, the cosmos, and the sun.
And there’s an easy (and delicious!) way to internalize the intense magical power of spiraling sacred geometry: eat a cinnamon roll. Even better, send magical energy into a batch of them while they bake, then serve. Magical intentions with which to infuse them might include prosperity, luck, success, activation, blessing, or personal power.
3. Color a Mandala
Setting an intention and then coloring a mandala is powerful magic. In addition to the “coloring book stress relief” that is all the rage, coloring a mandala draws upon the power of sacred geometry to create energetic shifts in consciousness and can restructure your whole momentum. Particularly when paired with a highly positive intention, such as “I am powerful,” “I am healed,” or “New avenues of possibility are everywhere for me now.”
4. Do the Merkaba Meditation
The Merkaba Meditation is a detailed sacred geometry visualization involving a number of shapes and number patterns. In addition to providing a deep spiritual and energetic purification, over time it powerfully shifts your vibration so that all your magic and manifestation work becomes noticeably swifter, easier, and more effective.
5. Create a Crystal Grid
Crystals themselves are sacred geometry: both their microscopic crystalline structure and their more obvious physical shape. But you can also arrange them into a sacred geometrical pattern (usually a circular one, known as a mandala) for any conceivable magical intention. There are entire books and blog posts about how to do it, but you can also just set your intention, grab your crystal collection, and then use your intuition to create a geometric work of art. Optional embellishments to the process would include setting the ambiance with candles, incense, and music, or using other natural items along with your crystals to create your mandala such as flowers, acorns, or pinecones.
Work a little sacred geometry into your magical and spiritual practice, and see what unfolds.
