W7L1: Kannon Sacred Geometry

Overview & Purpose

A deeper understanding of the connection to Kannon

What is Sacred Geometry

Often the things we are drawn to as a child or adolescent stick with us into adulthood in various versions of the original inspiration. When I was a kid, I could spend hours with my Spirograph set. The beginning of a life-long love affair with sacred geometry and the universe’s hidden esoteric laws were born.

Plato said: “God geometrizes continually.” 

The language of this universe is a mathematical and geometrical code. Nothing in nature escapes this fact.

We can discern sacred meanings from numbers, shapes, symbols, proportions, vertices, vectors, intersections, relationships, stress/tensions, pulses, directional movement, dimensions, octaves and so on and so on. Some believe the power of the infinite resides at this level.

The sacred spiral (Fibonacci sequence), is inherent in everything from a simple pine cone, to a snail shell, to the human body, to the Great Pyramids at Giza.

The Lotus Flower “No mud, no lotus.” 

The late Zen Monk Thich Nhat Hanh

The Lotus, known for thousands of years as the flower of awakening, is an excellent example of sacred geometry, the Fibonacci sequence, the holy spiral and so on.

The Lotus Flower 

One of the Eight Auspicious Symbols in Buddhism 

“This symbol of the lotus flower is practically suggestive. That is to say, as the lotus grows above the muck in waters, we also should live above the troubles of life in wisdom and purity. Moreover, we can see this as a symbol for converting negative to positive energy. As we know that it is out of the mud that the lotus grows. Significantly, if the lotus can grow from the mud to blossom into a beautiful flower with a sweet smell, then we can go from human suffering to purity, beauty, and happiness. Certainly, the lotus symbol is common in Buddhism.”

At the beginning of my Intuitive Coaching Sessions, I set my intention to receive information that may help to identify where the Recipient is out of balance and or stuck. 


  • Where is the Recipient stuck?
  • Are they in harmony with the various aspect of who they really are as revealed through the Listening Stations?

If everything is geometrical at its foundational level, we could perceive a person’s loss of geometry and symmetry. Inherently within is the information to self-correct.

The self-connection practise has the potential to reveal the loss of symmetry where there is an interruption in geometry, the basic pattern of who they are, their authenticity code. The data/pattern is inherently always present in every cell, making it possible to self-correct through reconnection to who we are.

Metaphorically speaking, the botany of the Lotus Flower is an extension of us, our process and our becoming; there is much to discover.

  • Roots: Planted in the soil of the river bottom
  • Leaves: Grow on the water’s surface
  • Flowers: Grow from thick stems rising above the leaves
  • Life-Span: Over a thousand years, with the ability to revive after long periods of dormancy
  • The Lotus plant regulates the temperature of the flowers in much the same way as warm-blooded animals do

What does the Lotus have to do with Open Inward?

This is yet another doorway to connect with Kannon as she is often associated with a Lotus on top of her head, or standing or sitting upon the Lotus Flower. “Born of the Lotus”.

In Sanskrit she’s known as Padma Pani – “Born of the Lotus”, the lotus, symbolizing purity, peace and harmony.
