12. Fruit of Life – Throat Chakra – Sacred Geometry
The throat chakra, connected to our vocal system, contains the creation essence of expression. The Fruit of Life represents the “fruits” of the Flower of Life, which grew from the Seed of Life, birthed in the Portal of Life within the Container of Life. This sense of cosmic order was made possible by observing the cyclical nature of our cosmos.
The Fruit of Life builds upon the 19 (7 + 12 = 19) interlocking circles of the Flower of Life. Two additional “rings” of 18 and 24 circles are added to form an interlocking matrix of sixty-one circles (7 + 12 + 18 + 24 = 61). These 61 circles hold the story of time. Its gift is to see how the past, present and future are one.
The first ring of 18 circles represents a Saros, an 18-year cycle used to predict lunar and solar eclipses. By adding these 18 circles to the 19 circles in the Flower of Life a total of 37 circles appear.
The “gift of life” is revealed by seeing how 36 circles are rotating around a central “one”. This equates to 36 (7-day) weeks or nine months, the approximate time for human life to gestate. A child as the central “One” moves through the mysterious water world of the (dark/lunar) womb into the (light/solar) world of air. Here it recieves its first breath, which awakens the gift of consciousness. This creation story expands our awareness of how time and life itself are intertwined with the sacred order of the cosmos.
The second ring of 24 circles represents the 24-hours in one solar day. By combining both rings with the Flower of Life a total of 60 circles are now rotating around the central one, representing 60 minutes in one hour or 60 seconds within one minute.
The “Fruit of Life” pattern is revealed by seeing the 13 independent circles within it. These 13 circles represent the four seasons of the year (spring, summer, fall and winter). Each are exactly 13-weeks long, together they form a 52-week solar year (13 x 4 = 52).
The Fruit of Life contains the creation story of time and life itself. Many prophecies have been inspired by the cosmic dance of light and dark, which represent the harmonious fruits of life.
