THE SACRED GEOMETRY
Sacred geometry ascribes symbolic and sacred meanings to shapes proportions. It is associated with the belief that divinity is the geometer of the world. The geometry used in the design and construction of art, worship sites, monuments, altars, and spaces has been considered sacred.
Beyond the myth; A global and an eternal symbol: the rhombus or diamond, the ◊-shape
The rhombus (or lozenge, diamond, kite) shape consists of two triangles, one downward (Yin) and one upward pointed (Yang), joined together in union. It is found within the cultures and communities of our global world, often together with other geometrical depictions and it refers to the same notion everywhere. This geometric symbol represents the inner focus that one needs to perfect during during ones time on Earth. When the geometric shape of the rhombus appears a significant change is installed within the consciousness of a human being; one that supersedes the limited ego-self of the human personality and that acts for the benefit of all people.
This diamond symbol is also found in alchemical philosophies. Metaphysically speaking, this foundational image tells of creativity that is expressed by the culmination of the four elements: Air, Earth, Fire, and Water.
In the alchemical realm, the skillful employment of all four of these elements leads to potential and creativity. In other words, by allowing that we reveal our true purpose. The diamond symbol and its sparkle is synonymous with refracting: splitting and reassembling of light. Its "fingerprints" or trigons symbolize stability and metaphysically represent a conduit between dualities.
Diamonds are composed of the foundational element of life, pure carbon atoms which invariably originate from space,. Carbon is black, while diamonds are transparent crystal with a rainbow hued prism. Perfect in structure and unique in its powers of revealing light through reflection and dispersion.
Placed on the Third Eye, a Diamond encourages psychic development, and is a valuable tool for remote viewing, telepathic communication and clairvoyance. [Kunz] [Melody] [Megemont] [Ahsian]
A Diamond is a symbol of wealth, accumulation and the manifestation of abundance. It is also an ideal stone for the ascetic who has given up on material wealth, choosing it instead as an object for diligent contemplation and deep meditation. The fact it must be cut to reveal its beauty compares to the inner, spiritual beauty of the human being. [Hall] [Megemont]
Diamond carries a high-frequency energy that stimulates and opens all of the chakras, especially the Crown and Etheric Chakras. [Ahsian]
A crystal of Light : its high frequency energy is dispersed into flashing prisms of brilliant “fire” that typifies the sun. It is a multi faceted symbol of perfection and illumination, activating the highest center within the energy body.
The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and is the source of universal energy and truth. When in balance, we are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are.
In his magnum opus Savitri, Sri Aurobindo useds the diamond as metaphors to symbolize Truth, Light and Purity in thoughts, wisdom and purity in sight, as well as tears of pain and flawless bliss.
Born from union of the elements, diamonds are indicative of the loving and open nature with which one came into the physical realm. Symbol of purity and love, regarded in antiquity as dependable in its virtues only when received as a gift.
Man and his Symbols, C. G. Jung
Rough and polished diamonds are an amalgamation of many such patterns. Natural rough crystals are formed in these shapes over long periods of time.
Polished diamonds are cut with modern technologies. The exact angles of diamond facets and their symmetry determines the ‘tracing and optimization of light’.
The Platonic solids are primal symbolic models, designed geometric patterns of reality perceived in substance; unchanging and seemingly perfect templates of crystal patterns that occur throughout in countless variations. They represent ideas that originate from the, Source.
Plato equated the 5 solids with the 5 elements which composed all things, the foundations of matter and energy.
Platonic Solids: Cube as Earth, Icosahedron as Water, Tetrahedron as Fire, Octahedron as Air, Dodecahedron as Ether
The Diamond itself is a crystal 'disassembling' and 're-assembling' Light to its original known spectral form.
Its high frequency energy manifests as dispersed, flashing prisms that typify the sun.
Sacred geometry reveals the 'Shapes' of light.
Light reflected off the surface of a diamond is known as Brilliance.
Light entering a diamond is refracted creating spectral flashes of color known as dispersion or 'Fire'.
The 'Dance' of light within a diamond is its scintillation.
It is a spiritual stone that never requires 'cleansing'. A symbol of perfection and illumination, activating the Crown and higher Etheric Chakras.
'Flawless', with virtually no imperfections, to 'Very Imperfect', containing numerous inclusions.
Diamonds exist as 'Colorless' or 'Fancy Colors'.
Trace elements like nitrogen, boron and others are the source of colors in diamonds.
'Carob' seeds were an ancient unit of measure for weighing diamonds which then evolved to the system we use today.
