Throat Chakra – Sacred Geometry – Fruit of Life
The throat chakra tells the ancient stories of time revealed within the Fruit of Life. This fruit bore the wisdom teachings of time for the cultivation of life and agriculture. These insights are revealed in the form of two rings that are added onto the Flower of Life.
The first insight is created with a ring of 18 circles, which equates to an 18-year Saros cycle that predicts lunar and solar eclipses. By adding these 18 circles to the 19 in the Flower of Life, a matrix of 37 total circles is formed. These 37 circles represent the 36 weeks, or 9 months of pregnancy, needed to create the “one”. As the one emerges from the watery lunar world of the womb into the solar world of air, the breath of life awakens the infant’s consciousness.
The second insight is revealed by adding a ring of 24 circles to the 36 circles rotating around the central one. This divine order gave birth to 24 hours in one day, 60 minutes in one hour and 60 seconds within one minute. This understanding of solar time and cosmic order seeded the fruits for the cultivation of an agrarian lifestyle.
The third insight is found in the pattern formed by the 13 independent circles within the Fruit of Life. Each circle represents a 7-day week, together they form a 13-week cycle. This equates to the number of weeks for each of the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter). These four 13-week seasons equals 52 weeks (364 days) within one solar year. The seasons were honored by tracking the solar equinoxes and solstices each year.
This solar concept of time merged with the lunar concept of months to create a dependable lunisolar calendar that informed farmers when to sow their seeds and when to reap the fruits of their harvest. As agriculture grew men began to associate themselves with the solar world of the sun as the keepers of the “seed”, while women were associated with the lunar world of the moon as keepers of the “mystery”. Eventually this understanding of nature’s rhythm became a powerful tool for controlling growth. Its knowledge was limited to those who ruled as the stories of time and nature were turned into elaborate myths and laws created to disconnect humans from knowing their true nature.
By remembering that we are intertwined with the sun, moon and stars, we empower ourselves to reconnect as one with the cosmos.
Message: It is time to get organized and prepared for change. Become aware of our surroundings and identify what needs to shift in order to move forward. We are encouraged to share our insights and stories with others as we shift into this new reality.

My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
