Learn to Create Your Own Sacred Geometry-The Basics

Learn to Create Your Own Sacred Geometry-The Basics

Making your own Sacred Geometry is healing, creative, and rewarding and can be produced with a few simple and inexpensive tools. Some you may already have on hand. 

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
  • Compass drawing instrument
  • Compass pencil

Find the center point of your paper by taking the measurements of your paper (first horizontally, then vertically). Divide each of these measurements in half. Using this number, measure out a couple points across the paper horizontally and draw a line through the center of your paper from one end of the paper to the other. Repeat this step to divide the paper vertically. (as shown in diagram 1) 

Example: an 8 1/2"x11" piece of paper would be 4 1/4" across in one direction and 5 1/2" across in the other direction (see diagram 1). Follow these steps below:

  1. With your pencil (use your paper measurements divided in half) draw a line horizontally then another vertically to find your center point.
  2. Adjust your compass to the size circles you want to create.
  3. Hold the point of the compass on the center point of your paper (see diagram 1) and begin to turn the compass in a circle so the pencil in your compass creates your first circle.
  4. Hold your compass where each line intersects the outside of your center circle (see red dots on diagram 3), create a new circle in each of these places.
  5. With your ruler, draw a line through the cross points, creating an X (see diagram 4)
  6. Create 4 more circles by placing the compass point on each of the points highlighted in red in diagram 5 

You have just created your own Sacred Geometry-This is called the Seed of Life and you can use this as a foundation for all of your Sacred Geometry drawings. Now you can explore making your own marks with your ruler, compass, or both. Just make sure whatever you do, your drawing is symmetrical. 

When creating any art, always keep in mind that it's not about the end result, it's about the process and journey.
