20_Ether - Dodecahedron - Third Eye

Third Eye – Element of Ether – Platonic Solids

The third eye chakra, located in the middle of the forehead, is the place of intuition, inner knowing and conscious dreaming.By merging the logical and intuitive self together we can see our world through the singular eye of the soul.

A dodecahedron is a polygon with 12 equal pentagonal faces. Its solid form represents the element of ether. Plato worked with this concept as a model for the zodiac. Aristotle is the one who defined it as the element of ether and associated it with divine air, thought or will. It is seen as the invisible energy of space.

The combination of a dodecahedron (ether) with an icosahedron (water) creates a truncated icosahedron representing the vaporized structure of carbon. This is also known as a fullerene or BuckyBall, named after Buckminster Fuller.

As carbon beings, we are made primarily of water and energy. It is remarkable that Aristotle understood this over 2000 years ago. Fullerenes are now considered the galactic seeds of life.

The dodecahedron is aligned within the third eye chakra reminding us of the power of intuitive thought. The paradox is that without imagination, we would have no knowledge. Without knowledge, imagination cannot be developed. The truth is we need both. The third eye encourages both knowledge and imagination as we dance between the worlds of divine thought and earthly will.

Message: Trust our knowledge and our imagination. This will help us to see that nothing is impossible. Use our wisdom and our intuition to see all of the options available to us and to choose which is right for our soul. It is important that we trust and believe in ourself. We do possess the ability to make our vision a reality.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
