The dodecahedron is one of the platonic solids of the sacred geometry. But what are the Platonic Solids, and where do they come from?
In short, they’re derived from the centuries old Flower of Life. The Flower of Life is a complex flower like pattern, based upon equal circles. Additionally, the Flower of Life holds many secrets, including the Platonic Solids. And thus the Dodecahedron.
But in order to find these solids, we have to unfold the secrets of the Flower of Life.
The first secret, for example, is the Fruit of Life. From the Fruit of Life, Metatron Cube can be derived.
Through the complex lines of the 2D shape of Metatron Cube, other shapes can be formed. In total, five three-dimensional shapes can be formed. All of them have four very interesting characteristics in common.
To sum up:
- All faces have the same shape and size.
- All their edges have the same size.
- The interior angles between each face is the same.
- If the solid is placed inside a sphere, all the points are touching the surface of the sphere.
The best-known platonic solid, is the cube. Firstly, all its faces are a square. Secondly, all of the edges have the same length and thirdly, all the angles between the faces are 90 degree. And last, all its point touch the surface of the sphere.
The other platonic solids are the Tetrahedron, the Octahedron, the Icosahedron and the Dodecahedron.
Unlike the cube, the other shapes are less commonly known.
So how did these shapes got their names? Well, these three-dimensional shapes were first described by the philosopher Plato (hence the name) around 400 BC.
Their names are based on their description in Ancient Greek. In case of the Icosahedron, εἴκοσι (eíkosi), meaning ‘twenty’, and ἕδρα (hédra), meaning ‘seat’.
But the strange thing is, these remarkable shapes are being dug up all over the world. What they’ve discovered is that they’re thousands of years older than Plato.
But what makes them so special in the world of Sacred Geometry? Most importantly, all our matter is built upon these shapes. All molecules and atoms, follow a certain structure. Which makes matter as what it is. Sometimes these shapes are extremely complex, sometimes they’re very basic. And you might guess it already, the most primitive shapes possible, are the Platonic Solids. All other shapes can be derived from the Platonic Solids.
So what does this mean? This means that the Platonic Solids are the blueprint of all matter. They contain every possible molecular connection and structure. Besides that, they also contain all possible geometric laws of this reality and universe we live in. It’s the secret key to Prima Materia; the primitive, shapeless base of all matter which got shaped and became the universe.
Just like the Icosahedron, the Dodecahedron has 30 edges. But the number of faces and vertices are reversed. The Icosahedron has 20 faces and 12 vertices, but the Dodecahedron has 12 faces and 20 vertices.
This solid represents the element Prana or Ether. Prana is also known as the life force energy. It contains all possibilities, the known and the unknown. It helps connecting us to the divine and Gaia.
Besides Prana, the Dodecahedron also resonates with the 5th, 6th and 7th Chakra.
So what can the Dodecahedron do for you? The dodecahedron its key functions are expression, divine creation of life and the highest form of consciousness. It can help you to raise your frequency and to connect with higher dimensions and your higher self. It’s the perfect tool for meditation.
The Dodecahedron also contains a very high frequency. This not only helps raising your own frequency, but the frequency of the environment as well. Besides, the Dodecahedron has a unique relationship with the Icosahedron.
They are the building blocks of DNA, the blueprint of all life. When you stack these two shapes and connect the corners with a line, a spiral appears with the exact structure as the one of DNA.
