The flower of life is extremely popular and believed to be a symbol for infinity and the flowing energy in its original form. A strong, healing and harmonizing effect is attributed to it.
Humanity knows this Symbol for many thousands of years. In many cultures around the world the flower of life is considered to be a symbol of energy. The flower is found worldwide in temples and initiation sites. Probably the oldest representations are about 5000 years old decorating the columns of the temple complex Osireion in Abydos, Egypt. In a Tibetan monastery another ancient flower of life was found with an estimated age of 2000 years.
The renaissance of the flower of life began in the early 1990s. Drunvalo Melchizedek studied the Egyptian mysteries and published his knowledge. He described the flower of life as a symbol that combines and unites the complete geometry of creation.
The construction of the flower consists of 19 circles and has a strong relation to Asian mandalas, in its form and meaning. The flower of life is kind of a prototype for all circle-based symbols. The geometric pattern within the flower, with its circular segments, is interpreted by many esoteric researchers as the basic structure of the sacred geometry. It is considered to function as a portal to the Akashic records, a universal energy field in which all existing knowledge and events are stored. Through meditation on this symbol one can receive answers to specific questions or get in contact with any recorded knowledge. The flower of life is regarded as the basic, fundamental form of existence and creation. Sensitive people may feel the force of this symbol immediately.
