HOW IS SACRED GEOMETRY USED IN HEALING? AND CAN SACRED GEOMETRY IMPROVE MY MEDITATION?
Many years ago when I started exploring sacred geometry, which I discovered through using crystals, I found you could create the shapes and use them for healing and raising your consciousness.
I was going through a lot of inner child trauma at the time, and I found meditating with the symbols (especially the flower of life), and also using crystal grids in the geometric shapes, incredibly beneficial.
Sacred geometric shapes as we have seen, bring us back to our true essence, to connect more deeply to the inner, and harmonize with the outer. It expands us and connects us on many levels. Each geometric shape has a specific energy vibration and intention, and feeling of energy. When using them in meditation or healing, they can bring about an energetic shift in your being and in your consciousness, creating healing and re-balancing.

Some energy healing practices and symbols are used specifically like this. The symbols are like ‘super-charged’ focused intention for healing or whatever the symbol is being used for.
To create crystal grids in sacred geometric shapes, you sit inside the crystal grids in the shape required as you meditate and feel their healing benefits. Or you can also sit and meditate whilst looking at these grids, and feel their effects.
For example, to help create better boundaries, we can use a circle of (red) stones. To feel more grounded, use a square grid created with grounding stones (like hematite).

SOME CRYSTAL GRIDS USING THE SACRED GEOMETRIC SHAPES AND HOW THEY MAKE YOU FEEL:
Circle grid – feeling of safety, boundaries, feeling secure and protected
Square grid – creates a foundation or base to build from, practical, ‘earthy’, grounding
Triangle grid – encourages to rise upwards to “higher consciousness’. Elevates your energy upwards. Also represents balance and harmony.
Star of David grid – this activates the Merkabah and is a very powerful grid. It creates high spiritual and psychic energy, for healing, protection, connecting with spiritual beings in other dimensions, and manifestation. I would use this only under the guidance of someone who understand how to use it. (However, you can meditate upon the symbol itself).
Crystals themselves can transmit sacred geometric codes and so when they are held or applied to the body/chakras, their energetic vibrations affect healing and re-balancing on all levels. Crystal healing as a healing modality also uses grids on the body/chakras in specific patterns for their healing, harmonizing, and unifying benefits.
Also, you can connect to sacred geometric shapes anytime – not just sitting in meditation. As you go about your day, you can bring yourself back into the present moment and mindful awareness by observing and feeling the sacred geometric shapes that make up the world around us. This is a great reminder of the connection to all in life – people, objects, nature, everything.
And you can also use in them in a mindful movement meditation: You can dance, move or walk, in a spiral shape. You can walk a spiral labyrinth, or other labyrinths in the shapes and designs of the sacred geometric shapes.
MANY PEOPLE ARE DRAWING MANDALAS NOW. WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF THAT?
A mandala is a design made up of symbols and shapes within a circle. You can often see the Flower of Life or Seed of Life in a mandala, as well as circles, spirals, triangles, etc.

Mandala actually means ‘circle’ in Sanskrit. You can create mandalas for different things, to symbolize different intentions. As you draw and create, a mandala can reveal the inner workings of yourself and your soul. It can be used as a meditation and mindfulness tool, to create feelings of inner peace and calm, reduce stress and anxiety, and much more. It is a fun, creative and personal way to explore your inner self, express feelings, merge inner and outer worlds, and also use it as a manifestation tool. It can be inspirational and therapeutic.
Michelle Harris is the founder of the draco dragon healing symbols system, a crystal healing system, which uses symbols that are based on sacred geometry and that bring about healing and unification. She also uses crystal grids to this effect. The healing symbols help people on multiple levels, from physical complaints to emotional healing, mental health, relationships, past trauma, developing intuition, releasing stress, soul/spiritual connection, and planetary and universal level alignments. Michelle also offers her popular life and soul empowerment programs to create balance and wellbeing.
Good post! While we tend to view much of Sacred Geometry in a two dimensional perspective, I would suggest understanding its 3 dimensional form. For instance the Star of David referred to is 6 pointed in two dimensions, but 10 pointed in a 3 dimensional form, matching the Kabbalah system. An 8 pointed star is 14 points in 3 dimensions. The 5 pointed star or pentagram is 9 points in a 3 dimensional format. Crystals can be found that can assist you with the 3 dimensional aspect. With all geometry work I would suggest moving slowly striving for wisdom and truth in understanding the varying frequencies that are being explored. Work at grokking each aspect rather than simply pursuing a superficial experience.
