19. Fruit of Life

12. Fruit of Life – Throat Chakra – Sacred Geometry

The Fruit of Life is the culmination of growth that provides the “gift or fruit” born through sacred order. This sense of order was defined by human observation of the cosmos. Its core is the central, unifying “one”, the sun as the Container of Life. It holds the Seed of Life representing the six planets in our solar system and the Flower of Life that symbolizes the twelve aspects of the Zodiac seen in the stars. Together they represent cosmic order from which the Fruit of Life is born.

Two “rounds” of 18 and 24 circles are added onto the Flower of Life to form an interlocking symbol of sixty-one total circles that creates the Fruit of Life.

The first “round” of 18 circles represents a Saros, which is an 18-year, lunar or solar, eclipse cycle. Lunar and solar eclipses mirror each other every nine years in the exact location, this is called a Sar or half of a Saros. By adding these 18 circles to the 19 circles in the Flower of Life a total of 37 circles appear. When combined, the central circle becomes the “central one,” therefore 36 circles revolve around the central “Sun”. The 36 weeks in a solar year equates to nine months, the approximate time for human life to gestate. The “Sun” can now be seen as the “Child”.

The second round of 24 circles represents a 24-hour day. When you combine both rounds with the flower of life you have 60 total circles (1)+(6+12+18+24=60) rotating around the central “one” represents the 60 minutes in one hour or 60 seconds within one minute. The actual “Fruit of Life” pattern is revealed in the 13 independent circles. These 13 circles represent each of the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter) within a 52-week solar year (13 x 4 = 52), as well as the 13 moon cycles within a lunar year. The Fruit of Life is symbolic of the life-giving aspects of both the Sun and Moon.

The Fruit of Life honors the organizing principles of creation and the fruits of our labor. Many stories and prophecies have been inspired by the cosmic dance between the Sun, Moon and Earth. One of mankind’s greatest gifts was the creation of calendars and time, which brought order to agriculture.

Message: It is time to get yourself organized and prepared.  Become aware of your surroundings and identify what needs to shift to help you move forward. Share your insights with someone who can help you create this new reality.

40. Unconsciousness

Fruit of Life

40. Collective Unconscious – Throat Chakra – Fruit of Life – Consciousness

The collective unconscious is held within the shared stories, memories, instincts, and experiences common to all mankind. Carl Jung saw these patterns as archetypes that were manifested through dreams and behaviors. These collective shadows are influenced by ancestral experiences that shaped science, religion and morality. The throat chakra holds the stories of our collective unconscious. These stories were passed on through generations of storytellers. The throat holds the archetypal wounds of man and woman, etched in the shadow of the psyche.

By shedding light on the shadowy stories held within the collective unconscious we see them for what they are. From here we can begin to rewrite the stories and shed light for others to heal. The goal is to awaken the collective unconscious to become conscious of our choices and heal these old stories to create a better world.

Message: It is time for you to reclaim the wisdom that is within you.  Look at the old stories of your life and see the wisdom hiding among the fears and gifts. This will help you speak your truth and share it with others from a place of peaceful power.  Words spoken with love and wisdom are the most powerful gifts you can give to the world.

“The collective unconscious – so far as we can say anything about it at all – appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious” – Carl Jung 

The throat chakra is located in the throat and is connected to the vocal system. This is the place of communication, resonance and truth.  It represents the lower world and the storied roots deep within the psyche of mankind.  In sacred geometry, it is the fruit of life that reveals the story of time itself.  Its element is air and its belief is based in Judaism where the roots of monotheism, the belief in one God, were born. The sound of wind in the trees became associated with the sound of God.  These stories were passed on in the oral tradition of storytelling.  They gave the story of one God a voice.  The throat chakra carries these stories as archetypes held within the collective unconscious. The throat chakra reminds us to use our words and our silence wisely.
