A logo is like the front door of a business. It’s a first impression. It’s a greeting. It’s got an energy. The world’s most iconic and famous logos have this down.
Logos are all around us, everywhere but we’re mostly unaware of their symbolic significance and power. Our logo, like many modern day corporate logos has a special meaning.
After reading this article, you’ll know what our logo symbolically represents.

The Seed of Life is a design that has been around since time immemorial and appears on ancient monuments around the world. It’s connected to the Neolithic cult of Mother Goddess that predates the patriarchal ancient and classical eras. In cultures that revered the Mother Goddess, archaeologists are now proving that the cultures were egalitarian meaning men, women and children had equal rights.

This is a very powerful symbol that in-itself generates balance and connection to the natural world. It has a power within it that aligns us with both the natural world and to the sacred geometry of the cosmos.
Figures as prominent as Leonardo da Vinci are said to have ascribed significance to the the ‘Seed of Life’ symbol. Da Vinci seemed to have an interest in the symbol’s mathematical properties. Source.
The Seed of Life symbol is also called the Flower of Aphrodite. It makes sense that the Mother Goddess symbol would be ascribed to Aphrodite who is considered a Mother Goddess. Since the Aphrodite is the inspiratrix of Sacred Essences, we thought it fitting to use a logo that bares her symbol.

The Flower of Aphrodite is said to represent the powerful magic of Aphrodite. The Greek Goddess Aphrodite, also known as Venus in Roman mythology and still older ancient cultures called her Isis in Egypt, Ishtar in Babylon and Innana in Assyria, to mention a few. As Aphrodite, she is best known as the goddess of love, beauty, relationships and fertility, but her real magic is about transformation. She is the alchemical goddess, because she cast spells which resulted in mortals and deities falling in love and conceiving new life. She turned a statue into a living woman. She inspired poetry and declarations of love, symbolizing her creativity in using the power of love. She has the power to transform the mundane into something sacred. The muse-like qualities of Aphrodite keep the creative flow in motion. Aphrodite is Sacred Essences muse!
The Flower of Aphrodite is made up of six vesica piscis, almond shaped forms, which represent the yoni, or female genitalia. The number six represents equilibrium, harmony, and balance. Six was sacred to Aphrodite. The Flower of Aphrodite was used as a fertility amulet because of these associations.

Without Aphrodite’s magic, we can’t experience the passion and joys that the mysteries of the heart bring, some to make us human, others to experience the god and goddess within us.
But the Seed of Life / Flower of Aphrodite also bears another circle that represents the prime creator.
‘The seed of life is quite a beautiful shape and the name explains the meaning – The seed of life IS the seed of life. Without seeds there wouldn’t be crops. The seed is the core of creation. Everything starts with planting the seeds. The seed of life symbol is an essential building block of the flower of life.
This is how the seed of life came to be. It starts with ‘The Source’ – God or the universe whatever you want to call it is represented with one circle in the middle and It decides to duplicate itself. It creates the vesica pisces.
After Source duplicates itself now it decides to create another circle another reality another form of creation and you have three circles. After the third circle source repeats itself ..then creates a fourth circle and then .. a sixth circle with one circle in the middle the main circle of creation or call it ‘Source’. Now you have seven circles, which is the representation of the seven days of creation that all religions speak about including Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

The number seven is a sacred number. We have the seven days of creation, the seven chakras, the seven colours of the rainbow, seven days of the week, the seven deadly sins, seven musical scales, the seven formatic principles, the seven sages in the Greek tradition and so on and so on. In numerology number seven is a number of the seeker.’ Quoted from – The Seed of Life – Sacred Geometry video
