16. Icosahedron – Water – Sacral Chakra
An Icosahedron has 20 equal triangular faces. It is symbolic of water and our sacral chakra. The dual or partner of the icosahedron is the dodecahedron, the element of ether. Combined they represent carbon. As carbon beings we are made of water and ether/energy. Water acts as a transport system within our body, providing our cells with necessary nutrients for life. Our body consists of roughly 75% water. Our earth is also over 70% water. Water is symbolic of the creative force of nature. It is replenishing and destructive, which can create a sense of duality,or inner conflict. This is the essence of chaos, which in turn leads to order and the creation of something new. The sacral chakra represents our sexual and creative energy, a primary source of chaos. In the ancient world, water was seen as the creative source of all life. In the practice of Feng Shui, the elements of wind and water are in constant opposition to each other yet they come together to form Chi, or life force energy.
Message: Water is reminding you that the power of chaos is a creative and necessary force that will ultimately bring balance to all areas of your life. Connect with the power of water to help you cleanse, replenish and heal. Flow with the changes that are flowing within you. Be open to creating a new way of living that truly rejuvenates you.
“In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.” – Lao Tzu
