pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.
The FOL symbol is over six thousand years old. Throughout human history, philosophers, artists, and architects around the world have known the FOL for its
perfect form, proportion, and harmony. It is considered by many to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the
fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all mankind, believed by some to contain
a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.
There are many religious beliefs associated with the FOL; for example, depictions of the five Platonic Solids are found within the symbol of Metatron's Cube,
which may be derived from the FOL pattern. These platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs.
Another notable example of that which may be derived from the FOL is the Tree of Life. This has been an important symbol of sacred geometry for many
people from various religious backgrounds. Particularly, the teachings of the Kabbalah have dealt intricately with the Tree of Life.
Significant meaning may be found by those viewing even the most basic components of the Flower of Life's design. The stages which construct the Seed of
Life are said to represent the seven days of Creation, in which God created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. Within these stages,
among other things, are the symbols of the Vesica Piscis (an ancient religious symbol) and Borromean rings (which represents the Holy Trinity).
The Flower of Life is one of the oldest known symbols and has represented important meaning to many people throughout history. It can be found in the
temples, art, and manuscripts of cultures from all over the world. The following are some of the locations in which the FOL symbol has been sighted.
Egypt - The Temple of Osiris in Abydos and at Mount Sinai.
Israel - Masada
China - The Forbidden City and various temples.
Japan - Various temples.
India - The Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple), Hampi, and the temples at Ajanta.
Turkey - Various old Roman sites.
Italy - Italian art from the 13th century (Wolfram 2002, p. 43).
North Africa - Morocco
Middle East - Lebanon and various Islamic mosques.
South America - Peru
North America - Mexico
The Flower of Life has purportedly been the subject of study by groups such as the Freemasons and the Illuminati. They believed it to be the oldest recorded
language which held clues to the workings of the universe.
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE COMPLETE FLOWER OF LIFE IS A KEY THAT WE ARE JUST NOW REDISCOVERING
AFTER BEING SAFEGUARDED AND HIDDEN FOR CENTURIES.
TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO VIEW THE CFOL ABOVE TO SEE WHAT YOU THINK.
Components of the Flower of Life have been apart of the work of Alchemists. Metatron's Cube is a symbol derived from the Flower of Life which was used as a
containment circle or creation circle.
(See the Metatron's Cube section of this article)
Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo da Vinci has studied the Flower of Life's form and its mathematical properties. He has drawn the Flower of Life itself, as well as components therein,
such as the Seed of Life. He has drawn geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, a torus, etc., and has also used the
golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design.

I first learned about the simple Flower of Life symbol when I read Drunvalo Melchizedek's Flower of Life books.
It has been said that to draw the FOL symbol creates wholeness within you and more.
According to this belief system, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred because in contemplating them one is contemplating the origin of all
things. By studying the nature of these forms and their relationship to each other one may gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological,
aesthetic, and mystical laws of the universe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_geometry
Now take a look at the COMPLETE FLOWER OF LIFE SYMBOL above. When I view it I feel the cells
in my body shifting and reclaiming wholeness. I was sent the CFOL picture by Andrew Monk http:
