Golden Sacred Geometry Plates
Sacred Geometry is the recognition of the universal patterns of nature and the building blocks of matter. These patterns involve space, time, and form. Plato described the 5 basic shapes -the Platonic Solids – as: Tetrahedron with 4 triangular sides – Balance and Stability; Cube or hexahedron, with 6 square sides – Grounding; Octahedron with 8 triangular sides- Compassion; Dodecahedron with 12 pentagonal sides – Face of the Divine Within; Icosahedron with 20 triangular sides – movement. Sacred geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, cosmology.
From these basic shapes, Sacred Symbols appear. Belief that these basic patterns of nature are sacred and connected to the Diving created sacred art, architecture, and spaces.
Using Sacred Symbols can facilitate growth and change, connect one to the Divine within and without, and energize material objects (crystals, candles, jewelry, almost anything) as well one?s own body chemistry.
We invite you to “Play” with these sacred shapes. Place them under your water glass, then drink the energized water. Cleanse and charge your crystals and other sacred objects. We especially like the Infinity Symbol placed on any body part in which the energy feels ?stuck?. Round symbol are 4 inches in diameter, the Kabbalah Tree is slightly longer and narrower. Each are 18kt gold plated and come in their own pouch.
