What is the meaning of Metatron's Cube in Sacred Geometry?

The Meaning of Metatron’s Cube Explained

Gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of Metatron’s Cube and its spiritual significance.

The Cube of Metatron is explained best by discussing the shape’s origin, its place within Sacred Geometry, and its differences from other Platonic solids.

Let’s explore the seemingly endless intricacy of the main symbol of Archangel Metatron.

What Is Metatron’s Cube?

Metatron’s Cube is a complex, two-dimensional design in Sacred Geometry.

It depicts a three-dimensional object found in the biblical Apocrypha.

According to some post-Second Temple Jews and early Christians, the cube emerges from the Archangel Metatron’s soul.

The Babylonian Talmud describes Metatron, a modernization of the Hebrew word "Mattatron," as the Heavenly Scribe. 

The cube is also a perfectly adorned Merkabah or throne-chariot, and serves as the means by which Enoch, Elijah, and others bodily ascended to Heaven.

Adept lightworkers may easily draw a connection between Metatron’s Cube, the Merkabah, and the pineal gland.

The Archangel Metatron Sacred Geometry Symbol: Origin of Metatron’s Cube

The origin of the cube is mysterious because the geometrical shape was likely discovered in several places at different points in history.

Still, we have some idea of where the cube came from based on historical references.

Who Discovered Metatron’s Cube?

The person who discovered the Cube in Europe was Fibonacci, aka Leonardo Pisano, one of the world’s most famous mathematicians.

However, civilizations in Asia and Africa probably discovered it earlier, most likely in Egypt and India. Nevertheless, credit goes to Fibonacci in the West.

Archangel Metatron’s Cube, Sacred Geometry, and the Platonic Solids

You can begin to appreciate the meaning of Metatron’s Cube once you realize it contains all the geometric shapes found in our universe including some of the building blocks to organic life forms. You can find all five Platonic solids hidden in the cube, too.

The five Platonic solids include:

  • Tetrahedron
  • Cube
  • Octahedron
  • Icosahedron
  • Dodecahedron

The longer you stare at the cube, the more geometric shapes you discover. For example, you may twice notice the three-dimensional Metatron’s Star, an eight-pointed star with conical rays. Six of the rays radiate sideways, while the other two point directly at and away from the viewer.

What Is the Significance of Metatron’s Cube in Sacred Geometry?

The meaning of Metatron’s Cube in Sacred Geometry depends on the viewer’s level of understanding.

Novices will see the Cube of Metatron as a two-dimensional object without knowing what the circles and straight lines represent, or failing to see the cube at all. 

Adepts who meditate on Archangel Metatron’s Cube may view it as a three-dimensional cube that contains all five Platonic solids.

A few individuals who meditate on the cube as a visual focal point may begin to see it in five dimensions, revealing new shapes and patterns over time (fourth dimension) as it moves through space-time (fifth dimension). In some cases, Metatron appears to divulge heavenly secrets.

Metatron’s Cube Explained

Most people who first encounter the Metatron’s Cube symbol will immediately grasp its significance in some vague way.

The symmetry and complexity of the design speak to the organized parts of the human mind.

But, what is Metatron’s Cube? What is the true meaning of Metatron’s Cube?

Symbol of Our Universe

The cube is the symbolic representation of our universe in its entirety.

All neatly packaged together in a little cube, we have all of the shapes necessary for Creation. We have order and dynamism, growth and restraint, clarity and mystery.

Symbolizing creation—Metatron’s Cube is the closest we will get to recreating all aspects of the universe in a physical form, especially the Big Bang.

Inherent Hierarchies

As a complex figure that depicts all the shapes in the material world, the cube also reminds us of the hierarchies present in nature, as well as spiritual hierarchies.

As King of the Angels, Metatron serves as the intermediary between God and any other high-ranking angel, although he will command lesser angels and give word to humans, as well.

The spiritual hierarchies found in the cube reflect the political hierarchies here on Earth.

At Galactic Federation of Light, we field dozens of spiritual questions every day. To assist our readers better, we answer some of the most common questions about the cube below.

Are the Merkabah and Metatron’s Cube the Same?

The Merkabah and Metatron's Cube are not the same, although they are related. Metatrons Cube derives from the Merkabah and contains a Merkabah within itself. In a way, Metatron’s Cube represents the logical, geometric extension of the first Merkabah. So, the Cube of Metatron is a Merkabah, but it is not the Merkaba. 

Is Sacred Geometry Real?

Sacred Geometry is real and stems from observations of repeating shapes and patterns found in nature. Its study has generated advancements in nearly every field, including medicine, architecture, music, fine art, and more. Not only is sacred geometry real, but it also underpins almost everything we do while remaining hidden just beyond our immediate perception.

Are Metatron’s Cube and the Flower of Life the Same?

Metatron’s Cube and the Flower of Life are not the same, but they both fit onto a circle grid. However, The 13 circles of the angel Metatron Cube merely touch; whereas, the Flower of Life is composed of 61 overlapping circles.
