Ancient cultures had a great deal of understanding around the dynamics
of geometry. They knew that any geometrical form, whether it’s
two-dimensional or three-dimensional, generates vibrations in specific
frequencies. It creates both electromagnetic frequencies and subtle
energy frequencies. The geometry of a room or a form – its angles, it
ratios, its proportions – all generate frequencies and fields of energy.
Some of these patterns of energy are extremely healthful. Some are
rejuvenating. Some are very inspiring for enlightenment. Some of them
are quite detrimental. We’ve all gone into a building in a city that was
very unfortunately constructed. Not only was it ugly, but it just felt
bad – it radiated this feeling that made you not want to be in it.
Geometry affects us – profoundly. It has a very strong effect on our
bodies, our emotions, our mental abilities, our spiritual abilities, our
state of being.
My first teachers, Chea and Domano Hetaka, used to tell me that every
geometrical form is radiating energies. Each form has a medicine, a
gift, for us. They would say some of the gifts are pretty nice and some
are not so nice. The altars that they used in ceremony are all circular.
They were very adamant that the circle be as perfect as possible, as
round as you could get it. They knew that this form was creating an
energy field, and it couldn’t do its proper work for you unless you had
the geometry really tight. Other cultures have the same stringent
requirements for their sacred altars and spaces. The angles, the
proportions and ratios – everything has to be just right in order to
generate the desired set of frequencies crucial to the purpose of the
The Hetakas always told me, “Geometry has an effect. It’s very
special. There’s a shape for everything. Whatever you want to do, there
is a geometrical shape which will perform it.”
