SACRED GEOMETRY

Platonic Solids

There are 5 unique shapes, which are distinguished from all other forms by their perfection of internal balance and harmony. These shapes are called the Platonic solids. They were named for Plato, but were used by Pythagoras and ancient Egyptians 2200 years earlier. Called the perfect solids, they are considered the five primary forms within which are contained all the mathematical principles found throughout nature. These five shapes occur naturally in crystals and are the basis of all created structures. The ancient Greeks believed that they could achieve mystical experiences by meditating on these 5 three dimensional geometric shapes. They are linked to the energy centers of the body and to the subtle energy fields that surround the human form. They are also associated with the orbits of the planets around the sun and to the relationships among the celestial bodies. Meditation on these forms attunes the mind to the "music of the spheres", the plane of eternal harmony. TETRAHEDRON - INITIATION
