The knowledge of life is revealed within our third eye chakra. The circular world consciously merges with the linear to help us see as one. This matrix is created by connecting the center points of each of the 13-independent circles in the fruit of life with 78 lines. This matrix is also referred to as Metatron’s Cube.
Metatron, “measured throne” in Hebrew, was the name given to the prophet Enoch when he was transformed into an angel. According to the Talmud, in Kabbalistic theory, Metatron sits at the top of the Tree of Life as the first sefirot Kether “crown/throne”. In Islam, he is known as Mitatrun “the angel of the veil”. As an angelic scribe, Metatron guards the “Book of Secrets”, which is thought to hold the answers for humanity’s return to the Garden of Eden.
The female counterpart to Metatron is Shekhinah, “dwelling” in Hebrew. In the Kabbalah, Shekhinah is associated with the tenth sefirot Malkuth “kingdom on Earth”. Located at the bottom of the Tree of Life, it represents our desire to be whole.
The knowledge of life awakens our intuitive knowing that the circular world of the divine feminine and the linear world of the divine masculine are both within us. When we see ourself as whole, we are in fact holy. The difference between heaven and earth as well as male and female dissolves, when we realize that we are all divine souls within a human body. This knowledge was hidden for thousands of years by those who wished to hold the keys as the gatekeepers of our soul.
This wisdom resurfaced in the teachings of the Kabbalah during the middles ages within Jewish and Sufi mysticism. The Kabbalah, represents the journey of the soul as it descends through the tree of life to become an actualized human in earthly form. As a fully formed human the mind begins to remember that it was once a soul. This inspires the psyche to ascend the tree of knowledge in order to reunite with the soul and feel whole. This archetypal journey is reflected in the 22 Tarot cards of the Major Arcana (big secrets). The 56 cards of the Minor Arcana (little secrets) are further divided into four suits related to the four elements (earth, fire, water and air).
As the knowledge of life awakens our inner wisdom it ripples into the collective unconscious by bringing our world into focus through the unified eyes of the soul.
Message: Trust the rational mind and its intuitive senses as we awaken to a new way of being. By looking at our present situation from all directions it will become clear which action(s) we need to take in order to feel both grounded and expansive. This is a time to open our mind so we can see with our heart.
“Geometry is knowledge of the eternally existent.” – Pythagoras

When I was in elementary school I used to draw the center of metatrons cube, and variations of it. But always without the circles… I wasnt told what it was until today. I can’t believe I’ve been drawing it my whole life without realizing it…..
