Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of Creation and the genesis of all form. It is an ancient science that explores and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all things and reveals the precise way that the energy of Creation organizes itself. On every scale, every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more geometric shapes.
As you enter the world of Sacred Geometry you begin to see as never before the wonderfully patterned beauty of Creation. The molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, the air we breathe, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes. Viewing and contemplating these codes allow us to gaze directly at the lines on the face of deep wisdom and offers up a glimpse into the inner workings of the Universal Mind and the Universe itself.
The ancients believed that the experience of Sacred Geometry was essential to the education of the soul. They knew that these patterns and codes were symbolic of our own inner realm and the subtle structure of awareness. To them the “sacred” had particular significance involving consciousness and the profound mystery of awareness ….. the ultimate sacred wonder. Sacred Geometry takes on another whole level of significance when grounded in the experience of self-awareness.
The Platonic Solids
As far back as Greek Mystery schools 2500 years ago, we as a species were taught that there are five perfect 3-dimensional forms -The tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. Collectively these are known as The Platonic Solids — and are the foundation of everything in the physical world. Modern scholars ridiculed this idea until the 1980’s, when Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated that the entire Periodic Table of Elements — literally everything in the physical world — is based on these same five forms! In fact, throughout modern Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, the sacred geometric patterns of creation are being rediscovered, but often without the greater context of spiritual understanding which protects against their misuse. One of our intentions with lightSource, is to provide a bridge to an intuitive spiritual understanding that is in alignment with the appropriate use of this knowledge.
Geometric shapes actually represent the manifest stages of ‘becoming’. To see and work with unity and wholeness in geometry can help abolish our false notion of separateness from nature and from each other. Through Sacred Geometry we can discover the inherent proportion, balance and harmony that exists in any situation, all manifest reality and even the circumstances of our day-to-day life.
It was Marcel Proust who said, “ The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.”
The Energy in Action
Leonardo Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician who introduced to Europe and popularized the Hindu-Arabic number system (also called the decimal system). He contributed greatly to number theory, and during his life published many important texts. He is also known for the Fibonacci Series, a numerical series found frequently in the natural world.
The Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two numbers in the list together to form the next and so on and so on.(1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55…). Divide any number in the Fibonacci sequence by the one before it, for example 55/34, or 21/13, and the answer is always close to 1.61803. This is known as the Golden Ratio.
One of the most profound and significant activities encompassed within sacred geometry and lightSource is the ‘Golden Mean Spiral’, derived by using the ‘Golden Ratio’.
The Golden Mean was used in the design of sacred buildings in ancient architecture to produce spiritual energy that facilitated connectivity with spiritual realms through prayer. Our reality is very structured, and indeed Life is even more structured. This is reflected though Nature in the form of geometry. Geometry is the very basis of our reality, and hence we live in a coherent world governed by unseen laws. These are always manifested in our world. The Golden Mean governs the proportion of our world and it can be found even in the most seemingly proportion-less (active) living forms.
Clear examples of Sacred Geometry (and Golden Mean geometry) in Nature and matter:
- All types of crystals, natural and cultured.
- The hexagonal geometry of snowflakes.
- Creatures exhibiting logarithmic spiral patterns: e.g. snails and various shell fish.
- Birds and flying insects, exhibiting clear Golden Mean proportions in bodies & wings.
- The way in which lightning forms branches.
- The way in which rivers branch.
- The geometric molecular and atomic patterns that all solid metals exhibit.
- The way in which a tree spans out so that all its branches receive sunlight
Another, perhaps less obvious but most significant example of this special ratio can be found in Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) – the foundation and guiding mechanism of all living organisms.
The understanding of geometry as an underlying part of our existence is nothing new, and in fact the Golden Mean and other forms of geometry can be seen imbedded in many of the ancient monuments that still exist today. The Great Pyramid (the oldest of these structures) at Giza is a good example of this. The height of this pyramid is in Phi ratio (e.g. the Golden Mean Ratio) to its base. In
fact, the geometry in this particular structure is far more accurate than that found in any of today’s modern buildings.
This explains why popular among spiritually significant shapes are pyramids and hemispheres (e.g. the domes, that are the basis of religious buildings, be it a mosque, a church or a synagogue). These particular shapes are energy emitters; they are shapes that produce a type of penetrating carrier wave which Chaumery and De Belizal named negative green (which acts as carrier-like radio waves that carry sound information). The vibrational quality of the Golden Mean gives it very strong communication properties, which facilitate resonance with higher realms in prayer.
We live in the 3rd dimension, or the ‘Plane of Manifestation’. The Golden Mean is an intra-dimensional doorway though which matter emerges into manifest 3-D reality. For example, when a star is born it follows specific number sequences or universal rules, the same rules of life in the expansion process. Then we see the light!
Thus the Golden Mean is the “fingerprint” of creation. When we re-create this moving and always expanding sequence, we have in effect – ‘the exact movement of creation in the expansion process’. When lightSource is playing, one is encountering and literally being bathed in this ‘Golden Ratio’ creation activity…undeniably one of the most harmonious, balancing experiences one can interact with.
The Magic of Geometry
Bio-Geometry is a science that deals with the effect of geometrical shapes on life functions and the design of shapes that interact with earth’s energy fields, to produce special pre-calculated effects on biological systems.
It was developed by Dr lbraham F. Karim D.Sc. in Cairo, Egypt, who has been conducting research in these disciplines since 1968. The tools necessary for the measurement of the energy of geometrical shapes are based on the science of Microvibrational Physics, or Physical Radiesthesia, as it was named by the French radiesthesists, Chaumery and De Belizal around the years 1930-1940, (and later developed by Dr. Karim).
Research in Bio-Geometry was, and still is, mainly dedicated to the development of a new form of architecture that would enhance the human biological system and give a new meaning to the concept of Home.
To upgrade the energy quality of existing homes so as to cancel the potentially harmful effects of unchecked energy fields due to the architectural design, furniture layout, electrical wiring and modem appliances, specially designed decorative elements are strategically placed to neutralize negative energy and add a positive quality to it.
Bio-Geometrical shapes, when designed or engraved on jewelry, have shown positive effects on the body’s energy field, and reduce the potential health hazards caused by cellular phones, computers and other modern appliances.
In many ways the science and metaphysical discipline of Bio-Geometry provides one of the underpinnings to support what many know today as Feng Shui.
Higher Harmonics Within The Golden Mean:
The Magic of Geometry and Color
The understanding of geometry as an underlying part of our existence is nothing new and in fact, the Golden Mean and other forms of geometry can be seen imbedded in many of the ancient monuments that still exist today. The Great Pyramid at Giza (the oldest of these structures) is an example of this. The height of this pyramid is in Phi ratio to its base. In fact, the geometry in this particular structure is far more accurate than any found in today’s modern buildings.
These particular shapes are energy emitters; they are shapes that produce a type of penetrating carrier wave which Chaumery and De Belizal named ‘negative green’, which acts as carrier-like radio waves that carry sound information. The vibrational quality of the negative green gives it very strong communication properties, which facilitate resonance with higher realms in prayer. This explains why popular among spiritually significant shapes are pyramids and hemispheres (e.g. the domes, that are the basis of religious buildings, be it a mosque, a church or a synagogue).
A revival of the ancient design criteria, or canons, in moderm architecture was attempted by the Swiss pioneer of the modem architecture Le Corbusier, with his “modular” system which comprised two scales of dimensions based on the Golden Ratio. The Russian researcher, Scariatin, who wrote under the pseudonym of Enel and published his first books on radiesthesia in Egypt in the forties, was the first to discover that one aspect of the negative green vibrational quality was an integral part of spiritual energy fields and increased with the spiritual evolution of the person.
Inspired by Scariatin’s work, Dr. lbraham F. Karim has done extensive research and found that Bio-Geometrical shapes have three primary vibrational qualities: (1) negative green, (2) a higher harmonic of ultra-violet, and (3) a higher harmonic of gold. Only shapes which produce energy fields with all three components are Bio-Geometrical.
lightSource produces and emits all three components: negative green, a higher harmonic of ultra-violet, and a higher harmonic of gold.
Negative green turned out to have other properties, however, which make it potentially very harmful under certain circumstances of continuous exposure. Dr. Karim has done considerable research into this type of energy, and the different components have been identified. The most important component in spiritual energy fields is a specific type of the negative green. (This is a vibrational quality that is in resonance with the grey between white and black). It is at the core of all energy centres in the body and power spots in nature. Pyramids and hemispheres produce this vibration along their central axis. In spiritual energy fields, however, only the horizontal component of this energy is found. The vertical component, which is the harmful part of this energy, is cancelled.
Within all the 13 sacred shapes of lightSource, only the horizontal component of negative green is present when the shapes are active.
The second component is a higher harmonic of ultraviolet, an invisible light that is the environment of angels and other light beings. It is a very purifying and relaxing vibration, which balances overactive organ functions and has a calming effect on the nervous system.
The higher harmonic of ultraviolet is present in all 13 shapes of lightSource when the shapes are active.
The third component is a higher harmonic of gold, which, although on a much higher vibrational plane, is in resonance with physical gold (it is depicted by the halos around the heads of saints). It enhances wisdom and prosperity in a broad sense. On the physical level, it has an energising effect that balances the body’s immune system.

Meditation and the Use of Breath
Meditation is a skill that has been practiced since ancient times. It involves the relaxation of your body, mind, and emotions as a way to free your consciousness for clear, concentrated focus on whatever you choose.
Although most approaches to meditation are done with the eyes closed and a quiet environment, it is also useful to employ both sight and sound in order to achieve specific purposes, such as deep experiencing of sacred geometric forms. The thirteenth form, Sri Yantra, has been used for centuries in this way, with the meditator chanting the sacred syllable OM while gazing steadily at the form.
Demonstration: The Power of “Breathing Through” in Meditation
As a way to demonstrate the power of meditatively using the breath, here is an experiment for you to try:
- Hold both hands up in front of you and quietly feel both of them. Do they feel much the same, or different? (We expect that for practical purposes they feel the same.)
- Now, with your eyes lowered or closed, with each breath you take; imagine that you are breathing through the palm of only one of them. (For a more pronounced experience breathe through your non-dominant hand.) Do this for five complete breaths, in and out.
- Now hold your hands up in front of you again, and quietly feel both of them. Do they feel much the same, or different?
The difference that you probably feel between your hands is the result of having done a brief “breathing meditation” on your hand. It is indicative of the gentle increase in energy that can occur by meditatively breathing through the thirteen sacred geometries, contained in lightSource.
How to Use the Sacred Geometries with Meditation
Once you have learned the basic process of systematically relaxing and energizing your body, mind and emotions you are ready to begin doing specific meditations on the thirteen sacred geometric forms in lightSource.
- Read all of the thumbnail descriptions and view all thirteen geometries. See which of them appeal most to you.
- Choose what geometry to focus on:– A single geometry (for your first time we suggest the first of the series: Torus, due to its power to center and focus one’s consciousness.)– A series of geometries either programmed or in a random sequence.
- Choose what music to use:– Any Monroe Institute Hemi-Sync track would be perfect– Classical music such as Vivaldi, Mozart or Bach– A recording of singing Tibetan quartz bowls or bells– Recorded nature sounds– Shamanic drumming and/or chanting– Any instrumental track
You’ll be amazed at how the animated geometries seem to magically synchronize with absolutely any type of music. Have fun, experiment and try all your favorites. And remember…if you want to maximize the effects, breathe through the forms as you watch them.
