Building 3D Platonic Solids

Updated: Dec 28, 2021

Years ago, when I was first learning about energy healing and alternative healing modalities, they had us do an exercise that involved holding our hands about twelve inches apart with the palms facing each other. We were told to imagine a ball of energy in between our hands. They asked us to compress the ball and then expand it. After some time, I began to get a sense of something tangible there between my hands. The more I worked with it, this ball of energy, the more it seemed real.

I went on to study several energetic healing modalities and the sensation of energy moving through me became more and more tangible. We referred to this energy as life force energy. Others called it prana. Still others referred to it as Reiki energy. To me, it pretty much seemed the same.

The Platonic solids are receivers for electromagnetic energies that surround us in the ether. This electromagnetic energy is referred to by some scientists as zero-point energy. Others refer to it as dark energy. Our scientists are understanding more and more about this energy every day. By spinning at specific spin rates and angles within Metatron’s cube, the Platonic solids are able to manipulate this electromagnetic energy to manifest matter. The Platonic solids respond to the signals we send in our minds. They respond to our thoughts.

It seems to me that a good way to connect with this electromagnetic energy is to work with three dimensional models of the Platonic solids. We can hold the models in our hands and sense the variations in the energies. I have created two videos that take you though the building of the Platonic solids using a modestly priced wooden kit that I found on Etsy on the internet. The kits are available through the vendor MathematicsOnline. I like these kits because you actually assemble each figure yourself. Once you have assembled the figures, you can then begin to work with them personally.

In the first video, I assemble the first three Platonic solids, the tetrahedron, the hexahedron, and the octahedron. The tetrahedron is comprised of regular triangles and has four sides or faces. The hexahedron is created using regular squares. It has six faces or sides. The octahedron has eight faces and is also comprised of regular triangles. Click on the octahedron below to play the video.

In the second video, I assemble the dodecahedron and the icosahedron. The dodecahedron is constructed using faces in the shape of a pentagon. It is similar to a soccer ball. The dodecahedron has twelve faces. The icosahedron is composed of regular triangles. It has twenty faces. These two shapes are a little more difficult to assemble than the other Platonic solids. The kit makes is easier to do. Click on the icosahedron below to play the video.

Keep in mind that the reason we are putting these models together is to be able to work with them individually. When you hold them individually you will begin to discern the differences in how their energies feel. This is a good first step in working with the energies of the Platonic solids.
