Art of Conscious Creation

 

There is a real art to conscious creation. It is taught in alchemy and many branches of metaphysics. The methodology is real, but it must be learned and applied. I am presenting these concepts for those who understand that creating change in the world is only accomplished through changing one’s perceptions, thoughts, emotions and sensations. This article presents a basic outline of simple techniques that are easily applied through practice and self-observation.

Meditation, which is the reception of higher spiritual energy, can also lend insight into the truth of our inner selves, the path of inner knowing or wisdom. This place of inner knowing deepens our faith and belief in a positive outcome. Through sensing this beautiful place “within”, the possibility of a beautiful “real world” can become a viable reality. This is a reality that we not only experience, but can also share to enliven and enrich others’ experiences of the world.

If we focus on lack of love, prosperity or joy in our lives, then we naturally create more of an undesirable state. When we speak about our negative feelings that surround an unhappy state of mind, we create a vibration with our voice, which is sound or frequency that reinforces the appearance of the undesirable state.

The attraction factor of energetic outcome could be called concentration or intent. The creation of positive or negative outcome is achieved through repetition of the focus of the mind, particularly through the experience of strong emotions or sensations. Any intense thought pattern will eventually evoke an emotional state. This will create either physical tension or relaxation in the body. The emotional and physical responses will determine the creation of a positive or negative outcome.

Our proclivity is to create the future through the projection of memories, thoughts and feelings into our “perception of the future”. We generally project our consciousness without awareness of what or how we create. A classic example of unconscious creation can be found by reviewing at any recurrent problem in our lives. This tendency is easily visible if we notice how many times each day that we experience negative thoughts or feelings about the problem. How many times have we felt guilt over a small social blunder? We keep the negative energy around us by focusing on it.

Emotions are feelings, and thoughts, pictures; together they create holograms or powerful mental/emotional images. It is impossible to perform any action without a hologram, and we “program” ourselves with our holograms, so that they become almost automatic, like tying our shoes. In other words, our reality is perpetuated by holograms, which are often subconscious.

Without awareness, we assemble a life based on memories. We expect that our lives will be the same tomorrow — but perhaps we will be older! We actually create our lives on this basis. We expect to wake in the same bed, the same house, the same car, and have the same friends. Our expectations are the form or structure that we use to create the present.

In creating our future, we must experience the exact opposite of an undesirable state — through “creating” positive thoughts and feelings. By calming the emotions or projecting a positive outcome into the future, it is possible to change the outcome of our lives. People usually experience difficulty with creative consciousness because they only think “inside of the box”. Thinking “inside of the box” tends to be linear — assuming that same problem can always be solved in the same manner.

As human beings, we are conditioned by our society to focus our minds negatively. We believe that money is limited; love diminishes over time; we will age a certain amount at a certain age; the destruction of the earth is imminent; and happiness may only be experienced briefly. Why focus on these thoughts when it is possible to entertain a joyous, beautiful reality?

When we choose to focus on positive holograms, reality is naturally altered in a lovely way. An act of will is necessary to create the possibility of this beautiful, joyous reality by retraining the focus of the mind and emotions. It can take time to reprogram holograms, but we can know that our new images are working through the occurrence of positive synchronicity and uplifted emotions. Each moment we have the opportunity to choose what we think is “real”: a wonderful reality or a depressing one. The choice of focus in each moment eventually determines the reality of our experience.

“Thinking out of the box” means feeling and creating pictures or holograms of a desired state that has never or rarely been experienced in our lives. The desired state is created by focusing on positive memories, remembering the positive feelings and thoughts in the present; and, finally, projecting this desired state into the future. (Consciousness and thought have an actual energetic output. Every time we focus on an idea that it is transmitted to others. We have the potential power to create a positive visualization and to share it by simply meditating on it.)

Keep in mind that much of our world, according to esoteric texts, is an illusion or reflection of our thoughts, actions and words. The “real” part of our world is a reflection of the higher parts of our nature. Our perception of the positive aspects of the world relies on our own attunement to our higher nature or true self…

Daily meditation practice is essential in creating active change. A practice should consist of five or ten minutes of focused imagery. In this meditative state, we should see our desired hologram, while experiencing it in the NOW. It is best to visualize the final result, as though we are experiencing the desired reality in the moment.

The manifestation process is quickened by writing down precisely what we want (this forms a mental picture) on an index card. Positive emotional experiences should be written on the other side of the card. Imagine that the two sides of the card come together as one manifestation. Look at the card each night before sleep. Imagine that this happy state is fully realized.

By following these steps, we can create our desired life and actually materialize it by changing our thoughts, feelings and actions. There are many classes, books and practices about manifestation. One of the secrets is listening to what the Universe wants for you, by listening to your heart. This feeling of quiet and peace found within will attune you to the right intentions, thoughts, feelings and actions.

There is always a pivotal point in manifestation — at this point, we begin to ask. “What does the Universe want me to do and what can I do for others?” We begin to look at our lives to see what we can change about our selves, instead of changing others; to see our selves as creators, rather than victims. Our hearts speak to us, opening to the creative message of the Divine.

Deepening Meditation for Manifestation

Technique for Practice

Choose a quiet place for meditation. Try to meditate during the first hour after awakening. Begin with a color — blue or pink seem to be the easiest in the beginning. Focus on the color until you feel, see and have a sense of the color.

Focus on positive feelings….the feeling of accomplishing a goal, the feelings that were present on the best days of your life, or the physical sensations of a beautiful day. Now imagine having achieved your heart’s desire. See it in its final state of completion.

Feel the joy and happiness that you would experience upon completion of the desire. See your self smiling and laughing in the picture. Now let the picture fade away, replacing the image with white light that shines on you and through your body and field.

End the meditation with a reminder that each time you focus that you are moving a step closer to your heart’s desire. YOU ARE DESERVING AND WORTHY OF A WONDERFUL LIFE!

New Moon Forecast

 

The New Moon appeared last night on January 16. The New Moon is a time of looking inward and waiting for new life to take form. It’s a time of reflection, which is particularly significant with a lunar eclipse on January 31—when we move in and out of the void. (In metaphysics, the void symbolizes the unknown. By illuminating it with our inner light, we find the path of the soul.)

Much of the New Moon chart is straightforward with six planets including Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto placed in Capricorn. The earth sign of Capricorn is represented by the goat, and it can refer to climbing to new heights, building structure in the inner/outer world, and success in the physical world. (The caution involves not becoming too obsessed by the trappings of the outer world.) All of the planets are direct, aiding with forward movement in the outer world.

When six planets are placed in a single sign, there’s obviously an emphasis on understanding the energies of Capricorn. In this case, the Moon (inner self, emotions) indicates our course. It sits on Capricorn 27, “A Mountain Pilgrimage”, and the mountain often refers to the spiritual quest, the desire to reach for more truth and understanding of qualities of the soul. It is the apex on the journey on a spiritual level although it can refer to reaching for more through career and endeavors in life.

The theme of long term planning, practicality, and releasing the past –– as well as what is unnecessary on our journey — remains for the next two weeks. The best way of discerning this comes from connecting with the inner self and finding the beauty of our personal journey.

Sun (life), Moon (inner self), and Venus (love, relationships) square Uranus (New Age, quantum field). In general, squares cause tension, and Uranus sends eclectic beams of energy that can bring new, fascinating, and original ideas—or interrupt the flow of consciousness. (Expect the unexpected, and review ideas before taking action.)

The universe provides a stable plan and shakes it up with Uranian energy that encourages internal growth, awakening, and seeing life from a different perspective. (Uranus is often erratic so take time to weigh the value of thoughts and ideas.) Along with this, the North Node (our spiritual path) is in Leo, making the quest about love. (It’s about bringing more love into work and everyday life—and following the heart.)

Mercury (communications, mind) placed in Capricorn is highly practical and interested in making the outer aspects of life work well. In this sign, the mind works in a slow, methodical way. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Saturn, which may give insights in overcoming patterns, beliefs, and personal history, which have caused limitation in the past.

Venus (material possessions, love, relationships) tends to run hot and cold in Capricorn with cool responses followed by reactions. which can feel heavy and cold. But it’s also about planning what we want to receive in relationships and how we need to feel love for growth and change. Venus conjuncts (close to) Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life), and Saturn (karma), which increases the possibility of realizations that reveal our inner patterns and limitations while giving insights to heal.

Mars (male, assertion) in Scorpio increases emotional flow. Its Sabian Symbol symbolizes “x-ray vision”, seeing through outer reality and its trappings to underlying truth. Mars conjuncts (close to) Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). Jupiter amplifies and expands whatever it touches, and, in this case, it increases Mars’ desire to take action in the physical world.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Scorpio trines (beneficial) Neptune (illusion, mysticism) in Pisces. It’s a powerful trine between two forces. In mythology, Jupiter ruled the physical world, and Neptune ruled the seas. Both planets are placed in water, touching our dreams and visions with a lovely, hopeful energy, which is much needed in the world.

Sun, Moon, and Venus conjunct (close to) Pluto, which can increase our power and ability to act as well as our ability to perceive our inner resources. Pluto often presents the “darkness” so that we can find our inner power to transform it from negative to positive state through reflection on the inner self.

Uranus (New Age, awakening) squares Pluto (subconscious, transformation), dredging up both the past and unknown for clearing and change.

Mars (action, male) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Chiron (wounded healer), encouraging healing through positive action and motion. Saturn (karma, limitation) squares (tension) Chiron, indicating the necessity of moving through (or rewriting) the past to heal the fabric of life.

New Moon Forecast

 

As we move into the New Age, we continue our journey into the unknown. Next week’s New Moon will be a micro-moon, which means it’s farther from the earth than usual. We tend to experience the void, a point of emptiness or new beginnings at the New Moon, and it will be amplified by other factors in the chart.

The New Moon, Full Moon, solstices, equinoxes, and eclipses are openings in the universal energy—times that offer the opportunity to receive and integrate greater knowledge. Each door holds an occult meaning. For example, the New Moon is void, the time of beginnings, and the Full Moon is the time of fruition.

The New Moon on Monday, December 18 features seven planets in fire—and five in Sagittarius, the sign of the archer. With Mercury in retrograde in Sagittarius along with four additional planets, it’s a time to redefine beliefs and realign our direction.

Sun, Moon, Venus, and Saturn conjunct (close to) Galactic Center. It’s helpful to see Galactic Center as the eye of the Milky Way that transmits light, higher information, and inspiration. Light from this distance speaks of the future, and it can take time to read and integrate the information from the “download”. (It would be helpful to take an hour for meditation.)

Focus on the future also appears through five powerful trines between Sun (life), Moon (inner self), Venus (love), and Saturn (time/karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change.) Trines are harmonious and promote the creation of “good” things. Uranus also represents the New Age and Quantum Change. It can transmit ideas and images, which are useful in creating a spiritually aligned future.

Mercury remains retrograde until December 22, increasing the likelihood that we will have to wait before processing the “divine” information from Galactic Center. The retrograde makes precise tasks difficult, and it’s important to slow down—and use intuition. (The Higher Mind is intuition, balanced by reason, and it’s part of the lesson of Mercury retrograde.)

Venus in Sagittarius has a relaxed view about love. It’s a free spirited energy that prefers nature and conversation. Mercury (communications) and Venus (love) squares Neptune, clouding our understanding and creating illusion. The aspect can intensify beauty and mysticism—or highlight the negative side of the imagination.

Jupiter

Mars (male, assertion) is placed in Scorpio, and it is exalted in this sign. It gives a warrior like quality to cut through the superfluous and create powerful outcomes. Mars is conjunct Jupiter (expansion, good fortune). It’s a benevolent aspect, increasing success and desire for physical activities.

Mars and Jupiter trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion), which can bring the benefit of higher emotions along with glimpses of calm, bliss, and love. These qualities along with spirituality belong the elation of mysticism.

Sun, Moon, and Venus are conjunct Saturn. Saturn can bring a sense of heaviness along with unhappy memories from the past. Saturn rules time and karma; it can make life seem heavy. (There are many uplifting aspects in the chart. The Saturn aspect will pass in a week or two.)

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn square Chiron, the wounded healer. This placement will likely bring wounds to the surface. Squares with Chiron rarely offer solutions; they reveal the source of patterns and pain. (We may receive insights for healing through aspects with Galactic Center and Uranus—after all they represent the cosmic field.)

Both the past (Saturn, Chiron) and the future (Uranus, Galactic Center) appear strongly in this chart. The lesson lies in letting go of the pain of the past, releasing patterns, and absorbing the energies of a new world in the making. The potential lies in creative applications of new and unknown energies.

Notes:

  1. It’s important to rest and reflect with Mercury in retrograde. Use intuition to navigate when life feels confusing. Rest when it feels overwhelming. (Retrogrades are not about pushing into the future.)
  2. We will receive intuitive information about the future, the inner self, and cosmic awakening–particularly if we’re aware and meditate. Galactic Center will transmit this information around the time of the New Moon. (It will probably feel more intense on Monday, the day of the New Moon.)
  3. Mars (male energy) and Jupiter (expansion) can help with completing tasks, creating a path to success, and working with the physical body.
  4. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) continues to cloud the landscape with illusion and misdirected imagination. Hold the thought or belief for a week or so–and see if it’s true.
  5. It’s easy to feel tired or “down” with Saturn in conjunction with many planets. It may feel depressing, but it’s not. We’ll receive much energy and information for a positive future. The aspect will pass before Christmas, and our spirits will lift.

Finding Balance

 

It’s challenging to stay peaceful, and balanced when the energies of the world change several times each day or week. Empaths and healers feel the world turn and surge with global events and strong emotions of mass consciousness. We also feel the people around us–as well as mass consciousness.

The “light” energy amplifies everything. The energy is challenging, and it’s important to tap into the inner self on a regular basis to find our way.  Otherwise, we lose touch with the inner self, which acts as a light on the path.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Part of the influx of light is known as the acceleration and amplification. It makes time seem to pass more quickly, and we feel everything more—if we continue our soul work. There is a good reason for it. When we feel ourselves and others more, it amplifies everything in our system—the positive and the negative. When our negative emotions and thoughts feel stronger, we want to change them. When our positive emotions become more intense, we seek this state. In other words, the strong currents of emotions and thought can lead to our higher self.
  2. When we choose the inner self, we automatically move into a higher vibration. Higher vibrations displace lower vibrations. When we focus on love and peace, the emotions flow through every level of our consciousness; they flood body, mind, and soul. (This teaches persistence and devotion because the impact and level of higher emotion increases with significant work. It also lifts above lower world emotions and feelings.)
  3. Every few hours, there is a surge and ebb of global emotion and thought. If we know the surge or ebb of energy and emotion comes from the outer world, we can seek the solace of the inner self. We can focus on love, forgiveness, or simply see a better world. (Anything with a higher vibration will do.) Becoming conscious of the input of lower consciousness helps in understanding how our emotions and thoughts are influenced by others.
  4. We are touched by everyone’s energy. It’s part of awakening.  As we gain awareness of this, we can shield, alter our relationships, or choose to release specific people in life. Ultimately, we have to choose people who help lift our vibrations and/or look at others with compassion. (We’re also learning to speak from the heart, and this requires time and patience.)
  5. Freedom comes from moderating our impulses and emotions by becoming incredibly aware of energy. Our true source of energy comes from the inner self and the universe. It’s necessary to cultivate it to have the strength and insight to navigate through life.

NOTE: If you are practicing meditation daily, you’ve probably noticed how moods and emotions alter throughout a given day. The lower moods appear and disappear during the day, so it’s helpful to observe them. You also learn that the inner self brings stability, grounding, and focus—as well as peace and love.

New Moon Forecast: Transformation

 

The New Moon appears on Saturday, November 18, and we’ll feel its effect for the next 10-14 days. The New Moon creates a void, a useful time for releasing, resting, and revitalizing our plans. The focus of the New Moon chart is transformation, healing, and opening to higher forms of love. Many healing aspects are mixed amidst the challenges.

The Sun (outer self, life) and Moon (inner life, emotions) are poised together in Scorpio on the same degree—with Venus (love, material goods, feminine) and Jupiter (good fortune) also placed in Scorpio. Birth, death, sex, and transformation—along with intense, psychic energy—are represented by this sign.

Essentially, Scorpio symbolizes the dark void, which we travel through when creating change. (The feeling of the void is increased by the New Moon.) No one likes the void because we don’t know the outcome. But light always guides us to a higher, better place–if we persevere.

Venus (love, feminine) and Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) are conjunct (close) in this chart. When love and expansion come together, it’s helpful and tends to bring beauty, hope, and opportunity into our lives. Venus and Jupiter trine (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which can lead us into a greater “feeling” of love. (Neptune rules water or emotion, and this aspect is harmonious. The highest expression of emotion is universal love.)

Mercury sits in Sagittarius, a fire sign, encouraging optimism, rapid thought, and interest in spirituality. Mercury conjuncts Saturn (time, karma), aiding with devotion and self-discipline. Mercury trines Uranus (awakening), which expands our ability to transcend the lower mind and to receive information from the higher, universal mind. The planet also squares (tension) Neptune, and this can cause confusion when looking at life (personal and global). Mercury square Neptune makes it difficult to separate truth and illusion. (Think of fake news, etc.)

Mars remains in Libra, which is not a wonderful placement. Mars rules action, warriors, and male energy, but Libra likes to deliberate and slowly weigh the matters of life. Currently, Mars opposes (2 opposite energies) Uranus (awakening, sudden change), and it can cause a feeling of pressure.

Everyone experiences anger about the state of world and/or their personal life. It happens, and we’re in the process of clearing it. Mars opposite Uranus can churn up anger, but it’s important to express through higher channels such as boundaries, acknowledging other people’s feelings, and speaking from the heart. (We could realize much misunderstanding occurs in relationships because of soul contracts.)

Mars squares (tension) Pluto, and it’s the same lesson on another level. Pluto (transformation, subconscious) has a way of releasing illusions about life and teaching us about how the universe would like us to align with Divine Will. (We can release anger by sending it up to the light, move into action on a new project, or transform it by changing our selves.)

Saturn (time, karma) and Uranus (awakening, sudden change) remain trine, helping us to integrate the old world and the new one. It simply makes acceptance of the changes in the world a bit easier—along with giving innovative ideas that can blend with structures from the past.

Sun and Moon (life and inner self) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. This aspect can align us with inner healing in a gentle way. Mercury (communication) and Saturn (time, karma) square Chiron, so it may take thought and time to incorporate the information received during the New Moon period.

Notes:

  1. The opportunity for transformation and healing comes with this chart. It’s important to decide where we want healing and change. Make decisions, plans, and listen by listening to your inner self.
  2. Neptune (illusion, mysticism) can awaken the dreams of our soul, particularly through day dreaming and meditation, It can reawaken our inner longings. Venus (love) and Jupiter (expansion) trine Neptune, which can align us with personal and universal love.
  3. In this chart, Mercury (mind, communications) is most useful on an intuitive level. Sometimes, the best answers come through meditation.
  4. Aspects between Mars, Uranus, and Pluto ask for release of frustration and anger to a higher source, the Universe. True transformation comes from exploring our hidden thoughts, emotions, and beliefs–and shining light on them.
  5. Sun and Moon trine Chiron. We will likely receive glimpses and hints of self-healing, which always involve self-love.

Five Ways to Find More Light

 

With current shifts in the world, it’s not always comfortable to live in a sea of change. It is possible to shift our consciousness to a higher point–and vibrate above the lower frequencies. It takes practice and repetition to do anything, but life feels much better when we remember how (and where) to change our consciousness.

  1. Nature always helps. Sit under a tree or go for a walk. (The needles of evergreens provide cleansing energy. Hold them between the fingers for 30-60 seconds.) Ponder the expanse of sky, and focus on the line between the earth and heaven. This line provides a great deal of energy. Ask nature to help by easing pain and lifting the spirit. (Nature listens.)
  2. When afraid and/or depressed, focus on the inner self. Think about connecting to the universe–and the sensation of light. (Focus on the feeling of sunlight, if necessary.) This simple act repels the darkness and alleviates fear.
  3. Become neutral. Learn to refrain from judging others–even when they’re wrong. Staying neutral means observing the situation and pulling back from reaction.
  4. Remain patient about life. The light is growing even as the darkness becomes apparent. The end of one cycle is the beginning of another cycle. It’s wise to surrender to the process while envisioning a new level of happiness and peace. (This is true on a personal and outer level.)
  5. Take time to love the self. Reflect on the many expressions of love, which range from fierceness to tenderness, unconditional giving to strong boundaries, and self-nurturing to surrendering to the flow of life. Oddly, loving the self (in the right way) is helpful in developing the power to send love and light to others.

Sacred Geometry: Designs for the Soul

Interview with Rowena Kryder, reprinted Courtesy Spirit of Maat

 

Julia: How were you introduced to Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: I was never really introduced; it arose from within. The meanings of the twelve energy patterns, as well as other patterns, are really just an observation of what goes on in nature and design.

This doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for teachers. But I have learned most of it on my own.

Julia: Where should one start with understanding the patterns of Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Let’s begin with the point. The point in Sacred Geometry is the location of the center — it is the point of the compass. This is the place of connection to the Prime Source, the Divine One, the Unity of All Things. And this central point is inherent in all of the patterns of Sacred Geometry. There is nothing without the point.

The point represents, in a way, focus and Divine origin. The Hindus have the Bindu, which is basically the same. The center of every flower or of every planet or every sun is this point. The focal point is inherent in all things.

Scientists don’t think this way. They observe the sun and the planet from the outside, and say, “It will burn out,” or “Life will disappear within a certain time.” They say this because there is only so much energy. They are measuring everything with the idea of only so much energy. Scientists believe in entropy — the running down of the universe.

The possibility that such diverse form as exists in our Universe could have been created by chance simply does not exist. This is an aside from Sacred Geometry that it nevertheless touches upon.

If one considers that there is a Divine Source in this point, in the center of every sun, planet, star, plant, or person, then we may realize that each from has its own eternal regenerator within it.

If one is always connected to Divine Source, then one doesn’t need to run down at all.

Order — the opposite of entropy — comes from within, from this life-giving point. That point represents the “central” part of everything.

There is a great deal that all of us could do if we only put our consciousness into this point. This knowledge and understanding is part of the value of Sacred Geometry.

Think what you could do with simple meditation by merely focusing on the symbol of the point. This is a real way, a practical way, to actually regenerate by tuning into Source. Focusing on our central point, we are linked with the Eternal, the Transcendent, the Divine, the Absolute. That is the point of all origin.

Julia: Could you explain codes and archetypes, and how they are involved in the way you work with Sacred Geometry?

Rowena: Patterns, or symbols and codes, are delineated tools for understanding that are given to use from Prime Source. When we understand how to unravel the code or pattern, we receive a gift or an understanding.

To understand Prime Source, then, we have to decode the symbols.

There is a genetic code, and a language code. We have to rise in consciousness to understand these codes, and then we become closer to the Prime Source.

Archetypal patterns deal with many worlds. There are the spiritual world, the cultural world, the natural world, and so on, with archetypical patterns for each of these. Also, at any given point in time, there are older and newer archetypes.

We can use archetypal patterns as an intermediary to help us move or transform energy.

For example, intensity is an old quality that could be negative or positive. Intensity came from duality, and it was a focus that helped us move through things.

Now, however, we are becoming “whole-hearted,” which is a different type of focus that involves all of us, our hearts, without the duality. This is part of the move into the fifth dimension — living through our hearts and staying centered, instead of focusing through the will.

We are learning to see the interconnectedness of all things, rather than looking at things from the standpoint of gratification.

Julia: You mentioned twelve major energy patterns. What are they and what do they mean?

Rowena: The astrological signs are a division of the 360-degree circle into twelve energies or patterns. Also within the circle are four triplicities of the division of energies: fire, earth, air, and water.

So the twelve basic symbols or patterns can be correlated with the zodiacal signs. I’m listing them in this order.

Pattern #1: Aries (Fire)  Aries is the step. It is the way in which one preserves, through a step-by step process. Certain people from cultures like Mexico and the Middle America created a stepped pyramid form.

Pattern #2: Taurus (Earth)  The step moves us into Taurus, which represents the maintaining of substance. Substance is a dense, preserving type of approach.

Pattern #3: Gemini (Air)  Gemini relates to the branch. It has to do with choice points. And making a choice relates to duality, the binary code of “on” or “off” represented by the Twins. It also is about distribution of information or energy. We can see this in the body through the branching systems of the lungs and blood, or in the branches of trees. The beauty of trees is that in them, what normally falls — sap, blood, water, fluid — rises, and what normall rises — light — descends from the leaves. So the distribution or the branching represents alchemical change.

Pattern #4: Cancer (Water)  The spiral or vortex correlates with Cancer. The vortex creates energy flow. It is a generator, and it could be symbolized as a spiral galaxy, generating everything — stars, planets, everything living. There are two types of vortexes: open and closed. A closed vortex has two points at each end and a circle in the center. An open vortex has the point in the center, with open circles at each end. The movement of the generating spiral in any vortex is connected with the Golden Mean spiral. The Golden Mean acts as a kind of arc between Prime Source and living beings. All spirals generate and create energy in a similar way.

Pattern #5: Leo (Fire)  Leo is the radial, and its function is broadcasting. It is for maintaining codes. In the phenomenal world, it is just a star distinguished by its radiance. Flowers mirror Leo: They are little suns on Earth, and many of them have the radial form. They may be in diverse color, but there is meaning in the color.

Pattern #6: Virgo (Earth)  Virgo is the loop, the tube torus or doughnut shape. It is turning inside out. It could be a knot, like the Celtic designs, or a link, folding in on itself. The tube torus is like that, it is turning inside out or around, looping inside out, and it has to do with the transformation of substance, or cycles, like the turning of day into night, or the turning of the seasons. The knot is the cycle. Also, the aspect of transformation of substance relates to the food chain and digestion — how all of the animals and plants interact. There is a hierarchy, here — for example, there are billions of grains and comparably a few lions. There is a pyramid. We will evolve to the point where we do not eat animals, and eventually eat very little at all. The more lightly we eat, the higher our consciousness, and this is definitely the direction to go in. Also, what nourishment we do take in should be very useful. So Virgo has to do with the purification of substance into body or consciousness.

Pattern #7: Libra (Air) : Libra relates to the column, the straight vertical line. It has to do with balance and strength. One must be centered to hold whatever is being created. The spine or the trunk of a tree are symbols of the balance and strength that holds creation. The column can actually be visualized for aligning or creating a connection between Heaven and Earth, between Light and Dark. It creates connection between things.

Pattern #8: Scorpio (Water)  Scorpio is my favorite. It represents the wave, that which creates the energy flow. It is a matrix that distributes or transmits the flow of energy. It penetrates deep. Waves are the means by which Nature transmits the codes. Scorpio is symbolized by the Dragon, as well as waves of all kinds.

Pattern #9: Sagittarius (Fire)  Sagittarius represents nesting: one form within another. In fractals, it is the principle of recursiveness. I like to think of Sagittarius as a diamond. In a way, it is the most allied with transforming codes. The transformation actually takes the energy to another level. It is the return of wisdom and life to the source, but it also is a “stepping up” of the energy. All of the forms have to do with changing energy, but this is a taking or restoring of the energy to a higher level.

Pattern #10: Capricorn (Earth)  Capricorn is the circle or the sphere. Yet it is an Earth element. It is the circle that encases things, like a skull or the skin. It is protective, making a barrier that holds shapes and Creation. It holds the life force in the physical matrix.

Pattern #11: Aquarius (Air)  Aquarius is the grid, any type of grid. It can be triangular, square, cubic, or hexagonal. It is the shape or grid-work or focus to which things attach. It is the interconnecting force that gives us our commonality. For instance, most of us have five fingers, not six. This “five” is a function of nature. It is found throughout space and within all phenomena. All things are created through the grid. All planets, auric fields, and Universes are created and permeated by the grid. There are also consciousness grids.

Pattern #12: Pisces (Water)  Pisces is transformation. There is real chaos in this form. It is unpredictable. It is an ending energy form symbolized by death, diffusion, and decay. Darkness, confusion, and destructiveness are synonymous with this form. You could think of terrorists, their unpredictability, how they can’t really be stopped, bringing confusion and chaos. Pisces brings an end to order when things become too controlled, too fixed.

Julia: How would you use the geometric forms for healing or meditation?

Rowena: It makes sense to think about the triplicities. For instance, for an inflamed condition, you would probably want to use water or air, earth, and then water again. You wouldn’t treat an inflamation with a fire symbol.

For a particular consciousness or situation that you wanted to change, you might use water to transform, maintain, or create a new situation. You could dissolve an unwanted condition by focusing on the Pisces symbol, because it diffuses or transforms old situations by breaking them down.

A patient or person could visualize or draw the symbols. They could put the image on a particular point of the body for healing. Drawing these patterns, or any of the Sacred Geometries, activates the brain, heart, and lungs into a healing space. This practice actually brings life into the body.

Creating designs and patterns is very exciting. The indigenous people wore beautiful garments with incredible color and design. They understood that color and shape could bring about healing, balance, and peace. The shaman wore robes with particular energies brought into being by the ornaments and designs.

Symbols or shapes, like the branch, can be used to bring in energies in your home. For example, if you hvae a garden and you live in a dry environment, you would use the curvilinear wave. This would bring in the water energy to balance the dryness and heat. But if you lived in a swamp, you might want one of the fire signs, such as the star, to balance the dampness.

Julia: I know that you are interested in the education of children. What do you think needs to happen in the teaching of our children?

Rowena: Our children are a new race. So we are essentially the bricklayers of knowledge for a new race.

They cannot learn in the way that children have in the past. They won’t memorize facts without meaning. They need to be introduced to Universal Law so that everything has a meaning, a center, and interconnectedness.

Everything has a resonance or a harmonic system. So I consider harmonics as a parallel to Sacred Geometry. The different tones and colors are ratios. It is all a Universal language. This is the language that the new race of children needs. We can assist by being the anchor points, with a promise of creating a new culture.

Julia: How would this look in practical terms?

Rowena: I envision a series of rooms in which children could learn music, Sacred Geometry, math, and art. I see a computer room where they may watch DVDs. The teachers would not be so much instructors, or givers of information, as they would be people who could help the children move more deeply into whatever interested them.

All consciousness goes through the process of motion from simple to multifaceted, then back to simple again. Consciousness at some point must always become simple, for it has to move both ways. I don’t mean “simple simple.” I mean “complex simple.” A place where complexity becomes integrated.

Everything is coded, nested. We need to teach the children about the nested patterns, like the code of the chromosome, the code of the Universe. When we teach them about the interrelatedness of life, they will not lose their connection with Divine Source. They will stay connected with Cosmic Law.

Julia: What would you like to add in closing?

Rowena: Sacred Geometry is about our connection to Divine Source. If we learn to work with Universal Law and Divine Source, then all of life is filled with abundance. When we live in this way, we are introduced to a multiplicity of worlds and choices.

The old way was about connection to cause-and-effect. You worked at a job because of the effect of earning money, then you retired. But there was nothing to retire to, because you had lost your connection to Divine Source.

We need to leave behind us this addiction to cause-and-effect that narrows both the result and possible incomes.
Security is not the answer. Fitting in is not the point. These addictions lead to seeking pleasure, not joy.

Pleasure is eating chocolates on the sofa because nothing is left in life. It is the hedonistic search for more pleasure, a cycle of pleasure and pain. Joy is linking to the Source. True joy is moving through the pain and linking back to Source to receive true happiness.

Faith is not faith as we have known it. Faith is the decision of staying with the Divine Source for the answer.

Inspiration is the appropriate answer from the Divine Source. We can live our lives in a completely different way, linking to the Divine Source, receiving an abundance that which was not possible before.

I know that this works, because I have lived it.
