Seed of Life

The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold 

symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which act as a basic component 

of the Flower of Life’s design.

The Seed of Life is a symbol depicting the seven days of creation in which the 

Judeo-Christian God created life. The first day is believed to be the creation of the 

Vesica Piscis, then the creation of the Tripod of Life on the second day, followed 

by one sphere added for each subsequent day until all seven spheres construct 

the Seed of Life on the sixth day of Creation. The seventh day is the day of rest, 

known as the “Sabbath” or “Shabbat.”.

In the 13th century, a Cabalist group from France succeeded, through geometric 

interpretation, in dividing the entire Hebrew alphabet into an order using the 

Seed of Life. The resulting alphabet was remarkably similar to that of the 

Religious sage Rashi who wrote his commentaries on the Old Testament at that 

time in France.
