Platonic Solids and Sacred Shapes for healing
Discover how to use Sacred Geometry shapes to raise your vibration
Understanding Sacred Geometry and its principles is the first step to transforming your life. While the deep knowledge in itself starts the healing journey for many seekers, this module equips you with tools of contemplation that help accelerate the healing process. Platonic Solids and Sacred Shapes are mathematically perfect forms, programmed with multidimensional consciousness to liberate the mind from the third dimension and open gateways to higher dimensions from where healing and abundance can be downloaded. Platonic Solids, named after the great philosopher Plato himself, are the building blocks of all that exists in the universe; holding within them geometric codes of creation.
They are the basis of morphogenesis, the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape. They occur naturally in nature. Working with them individually is said to help with our connection to nature and the higher realms of consciosuness; to find the common pattern which links us all at a molecular as well as at a spiritual level.
“ For every chakra, a sacred shape. For every sacred shape, a powerful vibration. ”

In the context of healing, Sacred Shapes are elemental shapes that complete the toolkit of Sacred Geometry Healing. Placing or visualising these shapes at the seven chakras or energy centres of the body can help activate the virtues and vibrations related to those meridians.
But first, let us understand how Chakras function. In Sanskrit, the word “chakra” means “disk” or “wheel” and refers to the energy centers in your body. To function at their best, your chakras need to stay open, or balanced. If they get blocked, you may experience physical or emotional symptoms related to a particular chakra. These wheels or disks of spinning energy correspond to major glands in the body.
- Root chakra to the Adrenal Gland
- Sacral chakra to the Ovaries or Testicles
- Solar Plexus chakra to the Pancreas
- Heart chakra to the Thymus Gland
- Throat chakra to the Thyroid Gland
- Third eye chakra to the Pineal Gland
- Crown chakra to the Pituitary Gland
As you know, each gland is responsible for vital functions of the body. In that same breath, each chakra is responsible for the vibrations projected by the body into the infinite consciousness. And this is where Platonic Solids and Sacred Shapes come into play.
