17. Tetrahedron – Fire – Solar Plexus Chakra
A tetrahedron has four equal triangular faces. It is symbolic of the element of fire. Fire releases heat and light through a process known as combustion. The sun is our source of this firey energy. The solar plexus area works within us like a finely tuned furnace, maintaining a steady temperature of 98.6° Fahrenheit. Sol is the Latin word for sun. Our sun is a star that formed 4.6 billion years ago. The temperature of the sun’s surface is approximately 10,000° Fahrenheit. The Sun was central to many cultures throughout the world for its life giving properties. They recorded the sun by determining the equinoxes and solstices. These ancient astronomers discovered that the sun was in fact the center of our solar system over 2000 years ago. They created solar calendars to track the seasons of the year.
Message: Fire and sunlight hold life giving properties that feed your soul. It is important for you to become more conscious of the foods you eat as well as the thoughts and intentions you take in. See if they are feeding your soul. Create a sacred fire ceremony to cleanse your emotional and energetic body. Meditate with fire as you balance the power growing within. Honor the sun for the joy and life that it brings. Become conscious of how to manifest this energy within you.
“Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire, called conscience.” – George Washington
