Recently, a customer asked, “What is the difference between sacred geometry and geometry?” And we thought, since our Light-Life Tools are partially based on sacred geometry, we thought more of you might have the same question.

Sacred Geometry

Refers to the study of geometric patterns you can find in nature and the universe. These patterns have spiritual, energetic, and symbolic significance. Some believe, that if you study and meditate on these geometric patterns, they can help you understand the world more deeply. These shapes, such as circles, triangles, and spirals, are in everything from plants and animals, to architecture and art.

Some of our favorite examples are the flower of life, the honeycomb hexagonal pattern, and the spiral of a sunflower’s seeds. The way these patterns manifest in nature is truly fascinating. It showcases the inherent mathematical and geometric principles that are the foundation for the beauty and structure of the natural world.


A branch of mathematics that deals with the properties, relationships, and measurements of points, lines, shapes, and solids. It is a fundamental field of mathematics that has been studied and developed for thousands of years.

If you’re anything like us, you might flash back to a high school math course … a2 + b2 = c2, anyone??

In reality, builders, architects, and engineers use geometry to design and construct our homes and offices, as well as the bridges and roadways we use daily. Artists use geometry in just about everything they do! And we bet you use some of your geometry skills when arranging furniture, without a second thought.


To recap, while both involve the study of geometric shapes, their focus and purpose differ:

We often study sacred geometry to uncover deeper spiritual truths or connections between the physical and metaphysical realms. That is to say, we approach it from a subjective/interpretive perspective. It tends to incorporate intuitive and mystical elements.

Conversely, we study geometry with an objective, analytical, and deductive approach. It uses rigorous mathematical reasoning and logical proof.

Sacred Geometry and Light-Life Tools

The Sacred Cubit measurement that Slim Spurling used to build the first Tensor Ring, is derived from the measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza. It is believed to represent a harmonious and divine proportion. Also, it reflects the belief in the connection between the physical world and the divine realm.

The sacred geometric shapes we use in Light-Life Tools, resonate with the fundamental patterns of creation and the underlying fabric of the universe. That being said, we believe that when you align with these patterns, you can tap into higher states of consciousness, increase vitality, and promote healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
