The "Seed of Life" is a universal symbol for creation and all of life. This seed is the beginning of the ancient pattern called the "flower of life." Six circles fit perfectly around a seventh circle in the center. There is much symbolism to be found within the number Seven in various wisdom traditions. For example, we have seven chakras or energy centers within the human body.
The metaphor of the seed invokes the possibility and latent potential for the beginning of new creation. The cycles of circles intertwining in perfect unison to create this shape evoke a sense of magic in the essence of the creative process.
