The platonic solids (tetrahedron, icosahedron, octahedron, cube, and dodecahedron) also represent the elements of Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Ether while opening and aligning the Chakras in our bodies!
DODECAHEDRON: Connects with element of ETHER (or Spirit) and the 6th, 7th, and 8th Chakras. This sacred geometric shape facilitates universal consciousness, enlightenment, and ascension.
ICOSOHEDRON: Connects with element of WATER and Navel Chakra. This shape promotes transformation in the physical and subtle bodies.
TETRAHEDRON: Connects with element of FIRE and Solar Plexus Chakra. This shape promotes awakened sense of empowerment and aids in manifestation work.
OCTAHEDRON: Connects with element of AIR and the Heart Chakra. This shape helps with integration of wisdom and unconditional love as principle forces in the universe and within us.
CUBE (or HEXAHEDRON): Connects with element of EARTH and Root Chakra. This shape focuses energy in grounding, balancing, stabilizing all forms on earth.
The Platonic Solids are ascribed to Plato's work with these shapes and energies. There is evidence, however, that humankind's quest for wisdom and understanding through the use of Sacred Geometry predates Plato.
The photo below pictures actual stone balls at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford which detail the platonic solids as we know them today. These stones are dated at least 1,000 years before Plato or his contemporaries.
Working with Sacred Geometry through the Platonic Solids in crystals or other stones can make profound shifts in your awareness and experience.
Emitting amplified energy through each shape, these crystals will make positive contributions to the home...and to the soul!
