February 01, 2021
Today we are going to delve into the origin and meaning of one of the best-known figures in sacred geometry: Metatron's Cube. As we explained in a previous post, the sacred geometry refers to the study of forms and mathematical formulas that appear and are repeated in nature, for example, a bee hive or even the shell of a snail entail this universal structure.
What does Metatron's Cube symbolize?
The Metatron begins with a central circle, surrounded by six more of the same size, forming a flower. And in turn each of these six has another in its extension. In total, it has 13 equal circles that are connected with straight lines, expressing the intimate union between the masculine and the feminine. It is composed of the Five Platonic Solids (the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahedron and the icosahedron, respectively representing earth, water, air, fire and spirit.
This powerful symbol represents all things that exist in the universe, no matter what it is or its level of importance, and the endless flow between everything and the universe. It represents the journey of energy through space, and also the balance within the universe.
His name and his origin
Surely you have heard of some archangels like Michael or Gabriel. Well, Metatron is also a biblical figure, guardian of the tree of life. It is thought that before being elevated to the divine he was the prophet Enoch. It is for this reason that Metatron is considered to be at the top of the tree of life diagram in Kabbalah.
How can we use Metatron's Cube in our life?
This symbol has many uses and they will depend on the aspects of your life that come to the fore as you look at it.
To meditate, you can follow the pattern starting at the center and simply by observing its complexity you can find calm, revelation and/or relief.
Metatron's Cube has movement, so when you observe it you will feel how the energy that is in you also moves, cleanses and transforms. For example, viewing it clockwise helps disperse negative energy.
Metatron is a pattern of creation and inspiration. Having this symbol visible in your workspace is a way to open yourself up to its energy and the universal flow it represents.
Lastly, Metatron's Cube wards off negative energies, even the darkest, so hanging this symbol on doors and windows keeps unwanted energies away and connects you to the divine flow of the universe.
In short, Metatron's Cube is a powerful symbol of sacred geometry that acts as a strong conductor of energy, capable of dissolving negative ones and attracting positive forces.
