THE SACRED GEOMETRY OF SOMATIC ATTUNEMENT

The martial art Aikido teaches that it is with the breath that we align ourselves with Ki, which creates all things. Kabbalah and Aikido both associate the spiritual dimensions of this vital energy with the three shapes, triangle with the head, square with the belly (pelvis) and the circle with the breath (chest.) They represent the elements of Fire, Water and Air. This is elaborated in a published article and the unpublished Appendix on which it is based, all of which is linked to this text.

Three Mothers, Alef Mem Shin
in the soul, male and female,
are the head, belly, and chest.
the head is created from fire,
the belly is created from water
and the chest, from breath,
decides between them.

Three Mothers: Aleph Mem Shin
Mem hums,
Shin hisses
and Alef is the Breath of air
deciding between them.

– Sefer Yetzirah

Japanese Calligrapher Sengai made the mystery of the Circle/Square/Triagle visable to the world throughout history. They represent the grounding of consciousness in the human body and are the spiritual dimensions of embodied consciousness in Aikido (head/heart/hara.) The mysticism of these cornerstones of sacred geometry also associates the shapes with the energies of fire/water/spirit, written about as The Three Mothers, the energies that bring forth creation. These notions are expanded in Kabbalah of the Mother Letters, in Tiferet: Journal of Spiritual Literature (#11, 2009.)
