What is Sacred Geometry?

At its simplest, sacred geometry uses geometric shapes and patterns to create a sense of harmony and balance.

The belief that there is a spiritual significance to geometry dates back thousands of years, and sacred geometry can be found in art and architecture worldwide.

Its use in sacred spaces such as temples and churches acknowledges the importance of geometry in the cosmos.

Sacred geometry is a way to connect with the divine, and its shapes and patterns can be used as a tool for meditation and contemplation.

How Does the Practice of Sacred Geometry Work?

By understanding sacred geometry, we can see the underlying unity of all things and tap into the universe's infinite wisdom.

Sacred geometry has been used in many different ways over the centuries.

One of the most famous examples is the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The perfect alignment of its sides with the cardinal points is thought to be no coincidence but rather a deliberate attempt to harness the power of this sacred practice.

In recent times, sacred geometry has been used in everything from architecture to Feng Shui, art, and healing.

So how does it work? Many believe that sacred geometry is a language our subconscious mind can understand.

We can tap into our deepest wisdom and intuition by working with these patterns.

Sacred Geometry is also considered a blueprint for creation itself, providing a design for manifestation.

You may connect with something much larger than yourself by connecting with these ancient geometric shapes.

You can harness the power of sacred geometry and its symbols and shapes by:

  • Using shapes during meditation to raise consciousness

  • Combining healing crystals with sacred shapes to aid healing work

  • Concentrating on sacred shapes to help manifest specific intentions

  • Practicing grid work (creating sacred patterns for different purposes)

The Most Common Sacred Geometric Shapes and Their Meanings

Sacred geometry involves patterns that often take the form of shapes and symbols, and they can be found in everything from the spiral of a seashell to the hexagon of a honeycomb.

Each of the sacred shapes that form our universe has a specific significance and meaning.

Knowing how each shape connects with us spiritually, physically, and emotionally is the foundation of the ancient practice of using geometry to improve our lives.

Below are some of the most common shapes and symbols associated with sacred geometry and their meanings.


The Triangle

The triangle's platonic solids are thought to be the "building blocks" of our universe.

The triangle is a symbol of all the shapes (tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron & icosahedron) as it underlines all of them into one.

This sacred shape symbolizes harmony, balance, and completion.


The Circle

The circle shape represents the never-ending cycles/circle of life.

The symbol of the circle represents oneness, wholeness, the cycles of unity, change, and the eternal constants of the universe.


The Square

The sacred square shape represents stability, solidity, practicality, and safety.

The solid foundations of the squares are said to be the grounding of earthly dependability, such as the base of pyramids and other structures.


The Pyramid (the Triangle, Square, and Spiral)

The pyramid shape is a shape that contains the triangle, square, and spiral.

This sacred shape also contains three sides to each triangle, containing the divine number of three and four sides of the square, four being the number that represents humankind.

The pyramid signifies the relationship between humanity and source.

For example: the Egyptian Pyramid of Giza was built to create the energy that connected the spiritual realms.

The top, or apex, of the pyramid, represents the highest point of spiritual achievement, while the body of this structure symbolizes the spiritual journey.

The Spiral 𖦹

The sacred spiral shape symbolizes heaven and earth, or "as above, so below."

It also represents the connection between the physical and higher self and all the levels of our being.

For example: All energy moves in spirals, and galaxies are energy in the form of spirals.

Furthermore, the spiral is the connection of the flow of energy through the chakras, and the spiral is part of the double helix shape that makes up our DNA.


The Cross

The cross is among one of the most sacred shapes in the universe.

The cross shape is the intersection of 2 lines, representing the joining of heaven and earth.

This joining also signifies the union of humankind.

The Star of David (Merkabah in its Second Form)

The Star of David is a most sacred symbol containing two triangles.

The triangle facing upwards represents masculinity, while the triangle facing downward signifies femininity.

Together, the two triangles of the Merkabah represent perfect harmony.


The Merkabah (The Interlocking Triangles)


The Merkabah shape is a representation of all the sacred shapes.
