Six-Pointed Star

The L0veVibe Global Meditation of Sunday September 27, 2009 will focus on the symbol of the Six-Pointed Star. We invite you to integrate this idea into your regular meditation practice, or even to devote your session to it. Contemplate it, feel it, paint it, sing it, experience it and -most of all- Love it.

Please remember the purpose is connection, so if you do not resonate with a symbol presented here, then feel free to choose your own. Why we are choosing this symbol is explained in the post Inspiration.

The Six-Pointed Star is closely connected to the Hexagon, the regular 6-edged polygon. The 6-star is "concave" (sharp) while the 6-edge is "convex" (dull). The sharp and dull forms, concave and convex, are sometimes combined in order to represent the concept of Duality and Integration.

This six-fold symmetry is one of the basic building blocks of Sacred Geometry. What sets 6 apart from 5 and 7? If we draw a central circle, then we can fit 6 circles evenly on its circumference. This can be done with 5 or 7 circles as well, but only for the case with 6 circles will the circles fitted on the circumference be of the same size as the central circle.

The 6-edge covers the two stereoscopic perspectives, allowing the artistic expressions suggesting a 3D cube, while at the same time representing Duality and Integration.

The 6-star covers the two opposing triangles of the Merkaba, again suggesting Duality and Integration.

The 6-edge and the 6-star together allow for the artistic suggestion of a 3D octahedron, a 4D hexadecachoron or a 5D hexateron, suggesting Integration and Oneness.

The hexagon and the six-pointed star are found in many Naturally formed structures: beehives, flowers, snowflakes, single-celled life, polar clouds on Saturn, crystals and their reflections, etc.

The six-fold symmetry can tile the plane without leaving any spots uncovered (tesselation). This can be looked at from two directions (Duality): bottom-up or top-down. Starting from the hexagonal unit we can paste identical units onto its sides and continue until we cover the plane (Integration). Alternatively we can start from an existing infinite plane and wonder what kind of internal symmetry we can assign to the infinite plane so that perfect periodicity is attained (Separation and Reflection). The two directions together, bottom-up and top-down, can be linked to the idea of the Merkaba.
