Flower of Life: How to draw it…

The Flower of Life is in fact a seed for further geometric construction. It conatains the Seed of Life, and if carried outward provides the frame for Metatron’s Cube. Drawing the Seed of Life is astonishingly simple.

Begin by drawing a circle. Use a compass. Now take the METAL TIP of the compass and place it anywhere along the circle you just made; draw another circle. You should have the exact image you see above.

Next, locate the two points where the circles intersect, here shown by the green arrows. Place the metal tip of the compass on these intersections, and draw two more circles.

For the next step, simply repeat the process from before; locate the two new intersections and draw circles from those points. Again, look at the green arrows. By now you should have 6 circles.

The two circles drawn in the previous step should intersect at a single point with the original circle. Put your metal tip on that point and draw the sixth circle. These 7 circles comprise what is known as the Seed of Life. Carrying the process outward will give you the Flower of Life shown below….

This construction is the framework for Metatron’s Cube. See the link below for a full tutorial on how to construct Metatron’s Cube and the Five Platonic Solids.



Happy to say there is now a downloadable version of the book from where this lesson came. Get a PDF copy of “Constructions”


Perhaps you learned something in this post? If so please leave a comment so I know my efforts are not wasted.

    Thanks for posting!

  2. EOM says:

    nice, very helpful

  3. Wow, I didn’t know It could be drawn by following a few simple directions. Great article, thank you!

  4. Mihel says:

    Your efforts are not wasted!! Thank you so much! :) The only thing wasted is my state of mind and my ability to be consistent with my interlocking circles. lol

  5. thank you! very helpful, I was struggling a bit :) I’m glad to see people drawing this image for whatever reason :)

  6. eye of the storm says:

    dont mean to interupt but this is a “falsification” of the construction of the flower of life.it always starts with one circle(representing unity consciosness),followed by cell division and a perfect logo rythmic spiral of circles in only one direction!!!
    what is shown in the first two pictures, is 2 circles spliting into 4!!! thats cell division,fine,but its followed by showing a double rotation pattern, emanating from 2 completely different centers of the 2 circles!
    thats known in sacred geometrical terms as the “luciferian rebellion”,its a master fake copy of the true unity reality from which its idea emenates!!! its duality in the making….

    Great! Just great! Is there any place where we can be assured we are not being overwhelmed by the deceptions of Lucifer?

    • Chemical Marriage does not cater to imaginary anthropomorphic creatures that embody human fear.

      • Prism says:

        So very well said. I was disturbed to my core to read that people have associated this remarkable geometric perfection with an idea as ludacrist as the deevil. Why does everything hav to get polluted by religion? Can’t it just be perfect without assigning dogmatic undertones? I just want to scream “get out of my math!” hahaha.
        Also. They contradict themselves w/ the belief in lucifer on the one hand, yet shun duality on the other.

    • cody miller says:

      Said above isn’t talking about the devil, the Lucifer Rebellion or Lucifer Experiment is just a perception of reality, rather than thinking of being one with the universe and conscious to the unity of all, we can cut ourselves from the loop of unity to do as we please. This is why Lucifer has been misinterpreted through YEARS of religion and fallen societies for being a bad or evil thing or an anarchist Antichrist. Its not necessarily bad its just never been successfully achieved by any. Totally mathematical is this design and it should be drawn in one direction all the way around by using the two centers of each previous circles in a clockwise motion. it may not legitimately matter on paper but in structure it means EVERYTHING. pyramids of Giza show this geometry everywhere if you can look close enough.

    thank you for posting this! it helped me understand it much better :)

  9. Eric says:

    Honestly,drawing this was the greatest experience I have ever had. I don’t know,but it definitely change my perspective a bit on life. Thank you very much for posting this! Also if everyone is interested in learning about the flower of life,search “Spirit Science-Flower of Life” on Youtube. Its really fascinating!

  10. ppea says:

    you definitely helped me understand it better. thanks

  11. NxC says:

    Thanks! my paintings are so much cooler now that I know how to do this.

  12. Prism says:

    Your efforts are not wasted.
    thank you very much for sharing.
    May you reap rewards in kind and may joy be your constant partner on the path you travel :)

  13. rose says:

    Thank you, excellent simple tutorial from which tro expand.

  14. I just finished the basic image and was pleased with the results, thank you so MUCH!

  15. anna says:

    Thank you, very good!

    Thank you for posting! Much appreciated

  18. Tracy says:

    I’d like to know how to draw one of these to a particular finished size, e.g. what’s the diameter of the individual circles if I wish to make a stencil of such and such size.

  19. Reblogged this on Chemical Marriage and commented:

    UPDATE! There is now a download version of the book for only 4.99. Check it out here..


  20. Sierra says:

    Hey, I was wondering if you could do this without a compass? I know that the gemetry is supposed to be correct for it to be genuine sacred gemetry, but what if I use a perfect circle and trace it? Do you think this will work? Anyone know of any tutorials? I have no compass at the moment and cant wait to start this project!

    • Yes you can! I would suggest marking the circle template into 6ths across the edge. Using these as guidelines will improve accuracy…also make your template from something transparent. Keep in mind you can make a crude compass using a string and a pencil

    i really enjoyed drawing this flower turned out just the way i wanted it too thanks so much whoever posted and made this flower up my mother really loved it with all the colour and shadow and shading. thanks again. loves it myself jealous now ive given it to my mum waaaaaaaaaaaaa

  22. Jax R. says:

    Thanks for this. This made perfect sense and I was able to make one FINALLY.

  23. bsisr says:

    Hello, as a constant student of life, and a metal artist, this has been a project I have wanted to do on a large scale (maybe 12′ to 15′). Since I don’t have a regular compass that big :0) I was thinking of trying the string/chauk method, which I was really happy to see you mention to another poster as a viable method. Thanks for a great site, I currently live in a repressed/oppressed/depressed area where the dogma is thick, so visiting here has been wonderful!

    • Posts like the one you wrote give me a feeling of validation. Thank you. I say use the string method but then go back with a tape measure and check the diameter of the circle in at least 10 places.

    What’s this about lucifer … Please don’t turn this beautiful flower of life into the devil

  25. Dave brubaker says:

    Nice explanation! Some friends and I have been planning to make a crop circle this year. This would be the perfect design!!!

  26. […] When I finally ordered my first custom longboard, a Gato Heroi ordered via Wild Things Gallery (I couldn’t make up my mind, which model and size to order for about a year or so 😆), this little project was just the perfect opportunity to connect with my board before getting into the ocean. I spent 2 hrs waxing / meditating after my kids had gone to bed, what an amazing evening ✨ I wanted to make sure to draw the Flower of Life properly and couldn’t get it quite right, need more practice 😊 but this site helped me understand how to draw it – How to draw Flower of life […]
