The inspiration to this pendant came from a picture of a labyrinth (on the marble floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France, with the six-petaled flower in the centre) and this was also when my interest was sparked to sacred geometry.

**********Great gift for yourself or any goddess in your life!***************
This Pendant represents "The ancient symbol of the goddess".
Also a reminder to the wearer of this design to honour her inner Self (goddess)
Inspiration for this six-petaled flower of life pendant: the flower found in the centre of the Labyrinth on the marble floor of the” Chatres “Cathedral in France. Sacred Geometry!!
Initially the early Christian fathers rejected the use of labyrinths because of their connection to the earlier goddess traditions, yet around the eleventh century A.D. labyrinths began appearing in European cathedrals dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
One of the better-known Myths around Labyrinth’s is the story of Ariadne and Thesues .In order to win Ariadne, Theseus must kill the Minotaur-half man, half bull who lives at the centre of a labyrinth. Ariadne gives him a ball of string so that, after accomplishing this, he can safely return to her.
The Labyrinth also represents descent into the unconscious structure of the mind, in search of wisdom and enlightenment.
**Flower of Life = Sacred Geometry**
What makes geometry "sacred?"
When viewing the reality around us we have all at one point or another have asked a very fundamental question. Who created it and how? Whether a person is spiritual or not, its a fundamental question that all human beings have asked since the dawn of time. If you begin to explore the natural world, one can take notice of patterns, symmetries, and shapes that appear to be consistently repeated in the microcosm and macrocosm. Throughout history physicists, philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, seekers of the truth, etc..Have come to learn that there are specific shapes, patterns and proportions in which Creation uses to create life making it "Sacred" from the rest. Life needs structure in order to build upon and manifest out of the great void.
One image in particular, which is commonly referred to as the "Flower of Life" has been recognized by the ancients as being the code or the cosmic blueprint behind all of Creation. When one understands and learns the teachings of sacred geometry, the truth is revealed in itself that all life emerges from "ONE" source and unity can be recognized by the left brain...The intellect can then align with the heart unconditionally creating space for a new "perspective in Consciousness." When we use geometry to express and explore this great truth, a broader understanding of the universe unfolds until we can see that all aspects of reality become sacred. The ancients such as the Egyptians, Mayans, and others knew this truth and incorporated sacred geometry into every aspect of their way of life.
The teachings of sacred geometry are available to everyone and do not require a spiritual understanding or belief to see what it has to offer! Once these truths are understood by the mind (left brain) and experienced through the heart (right brain), a whole new world emerges. Understanding the simple truths of sacred geometry leads to an evolution of consciousness and an opening of the heart that is another step in the process of human evolution and leads us into an amazing process of self-discovery that enables the individual to clearly feel his/her relationship to the universe.
