The Flower of Life

Sacred Geometry is the belief that geometry and mathematical harmony are found within the very building blocks of life. As we delve deeper and deeper into life, in a place where the great void and mystery meets the beauty of all creation, there is a place where the most beautiful of all patterns and geometric creations exist and these patterns have meaning.

The seed of life pattern is made of seven interlocking circles. Some beliefs see these seven circles as the seven days in which God created life. First one circle was created and on each further day another circle was added. Once all seven circles were formed the seed of life was born. And from this shape the flower of life (which is basically like the seed of life but with another layer of circles around the outside) is built, which contains the blueprint of the universe. Therefore, all that exists can be built from the seed of life. The oldest version of this can be seen in the Temple of Osiris at Abydos.

Jewelry containing this symbol can be worn to connect you with the very heart of all of existence. As you go back in consciousness to the heart of all that is you, become aware that there is nothing that cannot be recreated. We are born again into every minute and we can create our life as we wish it to be.

The “Flower of Life” can be found in all major religions of the world. 

 

The Hamsa Hand

The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It's said to bring its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.

The hamsa hand meaning has a variety of interpretations, depending on the culture.  The word, “hamsa,” derives its name from the five fingers on the hand. In Hebrew, the number five is “hamesh” and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is “Hey,” one of God’s holy names. “Hamesh” is representative of the five books of the Torah. 

In Arabic, it is “khamesh.” In the Sunni culture, the hamsa is associated with the Five Pillars of Islam.  For the Shi’tes, it symbolizes the Five People of the Cloak.  In the Islamic faith, it symbolizes as The Hand of Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed.

The hamsa hand has two main styles.  One style is shaped like a regular hand, and the other has two symmetrical thumbs. 

The hamsa hand sometimes includes an evil eye symbol, which is thought to protect against the evil eye.  It is often worn as a pendant on a necklace but also is found on key chains, house decorations, baby carriages, and other jewelry items.

 

The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye is one of the strongest symbolic images in the world dating back almost 3,000 years to ancient Greece and Rome. The evil eye meaning has symbolism in almost every country in the world and in every religion, such as Judaism, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, and Christianity.

The evil eye is a "Luck Charm" believed to "reflect evil"… and thereby protects a person or an object against misfortune. The evil eye is a shield that guards against various forms of bad luck that is willed onto you or an object by others.

The superstition states that when a person wears or carries an evil eye with them, it guards against misfortune and from bad things happening in one's life. It helps to keep your life in balance, protects you from "bad karma" and ill-will that could otherwise have a negative effect on your well-being or your life in general.
