I would like to thank Flower of Life Research for the following information, it has been a very interesting study for myself and I think you will agree.
What is the Flower of Life symbol?
(this has truly got to be one of the most infinite symbols I have ever seen)
The Flower of Life symbol is considered to be sacred among many cultures around the world, both ancient and modern. Within this symbol can be found all the building blocks of the universe that we call the Platonic Solids. The symbol can be used as a metaphor to illustrate the connectedness of all life and spirit within the universe.
In the Flower of Life course, the Platonic Solids are studied as they relate to the human body and the nature of consciousness leading the student to not only an intellectual understanding of the universe, but an experiential awareness of "God" and a feeling of connection to All That Is.
The Platonic Solids are important because they are found in the rudimentary construction of organic life, as well as music, language, and consciousness itself. In the Flower of Life workshop we show how these building blocks of life called the Platonic Solids serve as templates through which the foundation of all life everywhere can be expressed. Once this is understood, the importance of the Flower of Life becomes apparent as a totally integrated expression of "God" or "All That Is."
The Flower of Life is a universal template with many lenses. When placed over the face of a common or ordinary circle or sphere, the Flower of Life maps a window into the unity of infinity and turns the ordinary into a revelation of the extraordinary.
Looking into the window of the Flower of Life challenges us to unify our mind, heart, and spirit. When we can truly see all life woven so intimately, we strengthen the embrace of the divine in our lives and we can transform our world through the vision of universal unity.
Where can the Flower of Life symbol be found?
The Flower of Life symbol can be found in various locations around the planet. No one knows for sure how old this symbol really is. We can get an approximate idea of a minimum age from the middle Osirian temple at Abydos, Egypt, where the symbol is found. The middle temple at Abydos is much lower in elevation than the other two temples. The temple was buried at the time the pharaoh Seti I was constructing the other two temples at Abydos. It is notably different in its construction. Utilizing large granite blocks and amazing precision, this temple is unlike any other Egyptian temple architecture except for the temple by the Sphinx.
The FOL pattern was placed upon the granite siding of this temple. It was not carved into the granite. It seems to have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision. The FOL symbol has also been found in Masada Israel, Mount Sinai, and many temples in Japan and China. Recently it has been found in India and we heard a report that it was found in Spain as well.

In the Flower of Life Teachings, the relevance of ancient events with recent events and the coming events leading up to 2012 is explored. Rediscovering our collective history, connecting with our multidimension self and remembering parts of your own history, maybe at first just a few glimpses opens up a broader perspective about life. This then sets the stage for total discovery of our past, present and future .
Many Flower of Life participants discover a deeper feeling of LOVE which begins to grow very strong and becomes tangible in their everyday life. We believe that all of us already hold all the knowledge and answers we need within. Our hope is that those of you who wish to rediscover more will find the experience fulfilling in your life.
A Brief History of Humanity
A little less than 13,000 years ago, something very dramatic happened in the history of our planet which is now affecting every aspect of our life today. Everything we experience in our daily living, including the particular technologies we use, the wars that happen, and the very way we perceive our lives, is the direct result of a certain sequence of events that happened during the end of Atlantean times. Results of these ancient events have changed the entire way that we interpret our reality. Everything is connected!
There is only one Reality, and one God. But there are many, many ways that the one Reality can be interpreted. In fact, the number of ways to interpret the Reality are just about infinite. There are certain realities that many people have agreed upon, and these realities are called levels of consciousness. There are specific realities that extremely large numbers of beings are focusing on, and this includes the one that we're are experiencing right now.
At one time we existed on Earth in a very high level of awareness which was far beyond anything that we can even imagine right now. We hardly even have the capability to imagine where we once were because who we were then is so out of context to who we are now. From that very high place, because of the particular events that happened between 16,000 and 13,000 years ago, humanity fell through many dimensions and overtones, ever increasing in density, until we reached this particular place which we call the third dimension on planet Earth.
When we fell- and it was like a fall even though we didn't really go anywhere- we were in an uncontrolled spiral of consciousness moving down through the dimensional levels of consciousness. We were out of control, and it was very much like falling through space. When we landed here, in the third dimension, certain specific changes took place, both physiologically and in the way we functioned in the Reality. The most important change was in the way we breathed prana, a Hindu word for the life force energy of this universe. Prana is more critical to our survival than is air, water, food or any other substance, and the manner in which we take this energy into our bodies radically affects how we perceive the Reality.
In Atlantean times and earlier, the way we breathed prana was directly related to the electromagnetic energy fields which surround our bodies. All of the forms in our fields are geometric in nature, and one of them is a star tetrahedron which consists of two interlocked tetrahedrons. Or you could look at it as a three dimensional "Star of David". This star tetrahedronal field surrounds each of us. The top apex of this star tetrahedron terminates one hand's length above the head, and the bottom apex terminates one hand's length below the feet. A connecting tube runs from the top apex to the bottom apex, through the body's main energy centers, or chakras. This tube - for your body - has a diameter which is the circle you make by touching your longest finger to your thumb. The tube looks like a glass fluorescent tube, except that it has a crystalline structure at the ends which fit into the apexes of the star tetrahedron.
Before the fall of Atlantis, we used to bring prana simultaneously up and down this tube, and the two prana flows would meet inside one of our chakras. Specifically how and where the prana meets has always been an important aspect in this ancient science, which is still today being studied throughout the Universe.
The Flower of Life, above, is the most significant of all the symbols in sacred geometry. Encoded within it is the blueprint for all creation. Sacred Geometry is a universal language which allows us to access ancient knowledge contained in our cellular memory. It enables us to understand wisdom from cultures that have left earth long ago. It is the key to understanding the nature and value of color and sound. It facilitates communication with beings from other worlds and dimensions.
And, perhaps the most importantly, Sacred Geometry provides complete understanding and experience to consciously shape our future and accelerate the ascension process.
This Sacred Geometry is replicated in 44-2 chromosomes in every cell of your body, throughout all of nature, the solar system, and the universe. Understanding and working with these sacred images will revive a forgotten, ancient way of breathing and higher purpose for the pineal gland. This breathing process, practiced on Earth 13,000 years ago, is the key to the correct use of the MerKaBa, often referred to as the "Vehicle for Ascension." The MerKaBa is a crystalline energy field integrating specific geometric shapes that expand around the body for 55 feet.
Activating the MerKaBa will result in deeper contact with your Higher Self, give you unparalleled protection as the planet goes through its transformation, and will strengthen every aspect of your life. You will be better able to heal yourself and others. And most importantly, you will remember your intimate connection with God.
Integrating Right & Left Brain Activity
The Flower of Life teachings illustrate for the left-brain analytical part of us that there is only one consciousness and one God and we are all part of that oneness. This is important for it brings both sides of the brain into balance. This balance opens the pineal gland in the brain and allows the prana to enter the innermost part of your physical being. Then and only then is the MerKaBa possible. We feel, as humans we've divided ourselves into two - really three, but primarily into two - main components, which we call male and female.
The right brain, which controls the left side of our body, is the feminine component of us, though it's truly neither male nor female. This is where our psychic and emotional aspects live. This component knows that there's only one God, and that oneness is all there is. Though it can't really explain this, it just knows the truth. So there's not a lot of problem with the female component.
The problem is on the left side of the brain - the male component. Because of the nature of how the male brain is oriented, which is in the mirror image of the female, it has its logical component forward (more dominant), while the female has its logical component toward the back (less dominant). The left brain does not experience oneness when it looks out into reality. All it sees is division and separation. For that reason, the male aspect of us is having a difficult time down here on earth.
Even our major sacred books such as the Koran, the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible have divided everything into opposites. The left brain experiences that there is God and then there's the devil, perhaps not quite as strong as God, but a huge influence. So even God is seen in terms of duality, as one pole of the opposing forces of dark and light. (This is not true in all of the sects of these religions. A few of them do see that there is only God.)
Until the left brain is able to see the unity running through everything and able to know that there is truly one spirit, one force, one consciousness moving through absolutely everything in existence, until it knows that unity beyond any doubt, then the mind is going to stay separated from itself, from its wholeness and from the fullness of its potential forever. Even if there's the slightest little doubt at all about unity, the left brain aspect will hold us back.
When the left brain does see absolute unity, it begins to relax, and the corpus callosum (the band of fibers joining the two hemispheres) opens in a new way, allowing an integration between the two sides. The link between the left and right brain widens, a flow starts, information is passed back and forth, and the opposing sides of the brain begin to integrate and synchronize with each other. If you're hooked up to a computer screen, you can actually see this happening.
This action turns on the pineal gland in a different manner and makes it possible for the meditation to activate your MerKaBa. Then the whole process of regeneration and recovery of our previous higher levels can proceed. About the
Flower of Life Workshops
The Flower of Life is a compilation of many teachings, ancient and modern, that encourage and support each person to find their unique connection with source. The focus is integration, wholeness, self responsibility, unity and loving acceptance of all life. It's about bridging the gap of unconsciousness with love, compassion and understanding.
The workshop is organized and presented in a specific progression of information and experience designed to dispel the illusions of isolation and separation, by revealing the interconnectedness of all things. During the workshop participants are guided through a meditation using breath, visualization, mudras (hand positions) and a deep feeling of love, to reestablish specific energy fields around the physical body. These fields provide a vehicle (known as the MerKaBa) which allow us to move consciously from third to fourth dimensional experience and beyond. Also given in the workshop is a great deal of lecture information including sacred geometry, the history of the Earth and information that has not been taught since the times of the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools.
