The Sacredness of Spirals


There’s something magical about spirals. They appear in Nature all the time. Consider the snail’s shell, a sunflower, or water flowing down a drain in a tiny whirlpool. And don’t forget the swirling, destructive forces wielded by tornadoes and hurricanes!

Those who’ve studied Sacred Geometry may remember the Fibonacci spiral. Everything, from the Milky Way to our own DNA is a spiral! There was a theory that our own solar system, rather than being heliocentric, was a vortex. This article seems to debunk that “myth,” but it would seem logical, given the Universe’s propensity toward spirals.

My own Celtic ancestors, among other cultures, depicted the spiral in their artwork and jewelry.  Spirals were a symbol of the Great Mother and Her cyclic forces. Sacred geometry appears to have played a role in humanity’s past all over the world, alluding to ancient wisdom modern science seems to be rediscovering.

This morning I created the above stone/pink salt arrangement during a meditation, which inspired this post. I have always loved spirals myself (particularly triskelions ! they’re practically labyrinthine!) and the special role they play in the construction of our universe.
