The Hermetic Principles
The Second is The Principle Of Correspondence
Basically stated "As above, so below; as below, so above."

The Third is The Principle Of Vibration
Basically stated "Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."

The Fifth is The Principle Of Rhythm
Basically stated "Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; all rhythm compensates."

The Sixth is The Principle Of Cause And Effect
Basically stated "Every cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to this Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law."

We are now introduced to The Platonic Solid.

With the use of The Platonic Solids and the afore mentioned Principles, One who has been trained within their use may be able to affect and even control energy fields within their proximity.

Simply put the Platonic Solid is a coherent energy field which has been placed within a Crystalline structure which has been faceted into the archetypal patterns of creation. When this Energy of Source is utilized with the clear, focused intention of The User they can access, align and restore to harmony any area of weakened, chaotic energy. This applies to restoration of harmony in either a body, mind or spiritual energy field or even an environment of "inanimate objects", such as your home or workplace.

According to Plato These geometries are the very root and language of creation. These Platonic Solids exist and are the basis for and are the absolute foundation of all life. They are the blueprint of the sequence of movements that The Great Mystery created and The Divine Spirit makes as it descends from Pure Source Energy into the Grossest forms of matter. Thus creating the microcosm and macrocosm of the universes, and ultimately our physical and metaphysical worlds.

These energy patterns ultimately coalesce as they descend from the subtle realms of higher frequency vibrational dimensions, into our denser level of physical manifestation, and form a unique energy pattern around every natural thing and being in the universe. This unique energy pattern has been described as the field of formative causation, or the Morphogenetic Field. This energy field is crystalline in structure, and like the quartz crystal, stores information. This information in our human energy field contains the cumulative experiences and emotions of all of our lifetimes! This is referred to as our Karma. Often these geometric energy patterns are "stuck" or chaotic, these "stuck particles" can become the seeds of ill health, emotional imbalance and other discordant experiences in our lives.

By consciously accessing our personal energy field, through focusing intent on and through these specially energized Platonic Solid Crystals, one can access and reprogram the human energy pattern at it's most fundamental level through The Third Hermetic Law.

The Tetrahedron (Pyramid)

4 Faces of 3 Sides ~ 4 Vertices of 6 Edges.
Element: Fire ~ Initiation
Associated With The Manipura ~ Stomach ~ Solar Plexus Chakra

The Tetrahedron classically represents Fire, and each face is also the alchemical triangle of fire. The Golden Dawn called it the Pyramid of Fire, and used it as the admission badge for the path of Shin. The three upper triangles represents Solar Fire, Volcanic Fire and Astral Fire, while the bottom triangle, often hidden from view is the Latent Heat. The upper triangles are also linked to the three Astrological fire-signs Aries, Sagittarius and Leo.

The Octahedron & Triangular Dipyramid

8 Faces of 3 Sides ~ 6 Vertices of 12 Edges.
Element: Air ~ Communication
Associated With The Anadhata ~ The Heart Chakra

The Octahedron & Triangular Dipyramid corresponds classically to Air. The edges naturally correspond to the zodiac. They can be arranged in such a manner that the four Triplicities border a triangular face each without overlap. These faces cover half the surface, leaving 4 incomplete faces with signs from three elements along each edge (this may signify an absence of the left-out element. The Octahedron thus consists of both the abundance of each element and its absence). At each corner two elements meet (creating the same planetary correspondences as in the Tetrahedron, with the sun at the center as usual). In this arrangement, each square "equator" corresponds to one quadruplicity. The prime example of the Triangular Dipyramid is the Crystal Polaris used in Holistic Treatment and Healing..

The Hexahedron (Cube):

6 Faces of 4 Sides ~ 8 Vertices of 12 Edges.
Element: Earth ~ Manifestation
Associated With The Muladhata ~ Root ~ Base Chakra

The Cube (hexahedron) naturally corresponds to Earth. It is stable, the basis of western architecture and salt crystallizes into cubes. It has six faces, making some groups attribute it to Tiferet. The six faces naturally fit the Sephira, and can of course be linked to the planets except for the sun, which is placed in the center.
Another natural link is the folded out cube, which forms a cross.

The eight corners of the cube neatly corresponds to three complementary dualities. When two dualities interact, the four elements are created. Now the four elements are dualized again, and we get eight corners representing the relative absence and abundance of each element. This is naturally dual to the faces of the Octahedron. In the same way the six faces correspond to the six vertices of the Octahedron (thus we have the meetings between two quadruplicities). It is however not possible to arrange the three quadruplicities along the edges to enclose whole faces without overlaps. The question therefore arises, Does this signify the imperfections and limitations of the material world?

The Icosahedron

20 Faces of 3 Sides ~ 12 Vertices of 30 Edges.
Element: Water ~ Nurturance
Associated With The Svadhisthana ~ Sacral ~ Navel Chakra

This polyhedron traditionally corresponds to water. While the Octahedron and Cube, belonging to 4.3.2 have many symmetries involving the four elements, trinities and dualities, the Icosahedron and Dodecahedron (and Stellated Icosahedrons), belong to 5.3.2 have links to the five elements and the trinities and dualities. Thus they correspond closer to the whole system than the more material elements, which deal with just the four elements. These symmetries are harder to discern, since traditionally we humans have a tendency to avoid higher-order groups.

The Dodecahedron

12 Faces of 5 Sides ~ 20 Vertices of 30 Edges.
Element: Spirit (Ether) ~ Transcendence
Associated With The Ajna ~ Brow ~ Third Eye Chakra

This solid is classically attributed to spirit (Ether), probably because it was the last discovered and because of the pentagonal faces. Its twelve faces has naturally been attributed to the zodiac, and there have even been Dodecahedral Calendars. The symmetries discussed above exist in a dual form here too.

The Dodecahedron can be seen as the union of five intersecting cubes, whose corners touch the vertices of the Dodecahedron (this is a rather complex structure and hard to visualize). At each vertex three different cubes meet. Along each side of the Dodecahedron an edge from a cube runs, creating a rather neat system of correspondences between the five elements and the edges like the system mentioned above for the Icosahedron.

The evolution of the Quinta Essentia into the four elements may thus be described as follows: The original form of the Tetrahedron is created out of the primordial chaos by being the simplest and most stable form. It combines in various ways with itself, either by moving and mixing, forming the Dodecahedron and Fire, or by linking together and building the Icosahedron and primordial Water. However, while both polyhedrons are close to being perfect spheres, they don't fit together. These imperfect interactions between the growing numbers of polyhedrons force them to order themselves according to cubical symmetries, and Earth and Air are formed.

The Merkaba

MER = Light
KA = Spirit
BA = Soul
Associated With Elemental Integration
also Associated With The Bindu ~ The Spirit Chakra

The Merkaba (also known as The 3D Star of David, Stella Octangula and The Star Seed) is an extremely powerful symbol. It is a combination of two tetrahedrons - one pointing upwards towards Father Sky, channeling spiritual energy down to those on the earth plain, and one pointing downwards towards Mother Earth, drawing up Her Spiritual energy from beneath. The top, or upward pointing Tetrahedron is male and rotates clockwise, with the bottom or downwards pointing Tetrahedron being female, which rotates counter-clockwise.

This combination of 2 Tetrahedron Stars represents the Mental, Emotional, and Physical bodies all moving in different directions. The Merkaba creates a holy and sacred energy, conductive for time travel and intra-dimensional crossing. The Merkaba represents the evolution of the mind, and is the vehicle for our 2012 shift to the 4th dimension. It collects universal energy and brings it into the room that you have placed it within. It is excellent for Merkaba meditation, providing protection, power, and spiritual development.

The word Merkaba can be broken down thus: MER: rotating fields of light, KA: spirit, and BA: soul (this is taken from an 18th dynasty Egyptian translation, and in Hebrew it means 'chariot'). Therefore, Merkaba means the spirit vehicle or energy body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, or spirals of energy, which has the ability to transport our spirit or consciousness from one dimensional reality to another.

In my training, The Merkaba is the Light Body Vehicle, and it is the key to understanding how to move from one dimensional level to another. It is the divine light vehicle supposedly used by The Ascended Masters to connect with, and reach those in tune with the higher realms. When this shape is activated around your body, you are in a place of complete protection, with the surrounding energy being generated from pure Divine Love. It is believed that with practice, using the energy and shape visualization of a Merkaba, you can activate an energy field around you which is capable of carrying your consciousness directly to the higher realms. When meditating, try sitting holding a Merkaba and picture yourself inside this shape, with the two tetrahedrons rotating (one clockwise the other counter clockwise). It takes some practice, but is eased greatly by actually having a Merkaba to focus on! When achieved you will be sitting in a place of complete Protection, Harmony, Universal Balance and Love.

Crystal Spheres

The Sphere is an extremely powerful symbol. All of the Above Shapes (Except the Triangular Dipyramid {Johnson solid}) originate from and are created out of The Sphere, for all of their Vertices are in contact within its surface. Sphere Shaped Crystals are the representative of the Universe and everything contained within it, from the infinitesimal of the Microcosms to the absolute of the Macrocosms. IE. "The Cosmic All". The Sphere has become synonymous with the "whole" person. The non attachment and self containment of The Soul and The Physicality of a powerful mind which Includes the consciousness, mobility and interaction of the integrated individual. Tied to our spiritual nature, these spheres allow for our purity, clear mind and flexibility to emerge. They ingrate and balance the energies of intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies. They bestow stability, strength, invigoration and peace. They assist in the assimilation of "The Cosmic All".
The Sphere is associated With The Sahasrara and The Crown Chakra
