Originally known as the Flower of Eset, this representation of the divine blossoms inside you. It connects us all individually into a giant web of life, light and energy. As a single cell inside your mother’s womb you began to divide, moving through many of the forms in sacred geometry until you develop into a fully adult human.
The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest known examples of the Flower of Life. They date back as far as 9,125 BCE. It appears as if they were burned into the granite. Other examples can be found in Phoenician, Assyrian and Indian cultures.
