The Seven Sacred Shapes of Balance
Chakra Healing • Equilibrium • Perfection
Balance is crucial for a healthy mind, body and spirit. Aligning the chakras creates internal harmony, and this can be done in a number of ways. Meditating with sacred geometry is one of them, and another is to use the healing power of crystals. The Seven Sacred Shapes of Balance use both.CubeThe cube is the most stable of all the shapes. It provides a firm grounding and resonates strongly with the root chakra. It’s even said to activate the kundalini energy, coiled at the bottom of your spine, if you’re prepared. Red Agate magnifies these energies, providing additional strength and protection.TetrahedronRepresenting fire, the tetrahedron (or triangular pyramid) is all about personal power. Meditating with this stone unlocks the potential for manifesting your wildest dreams. It empowers you to accept responsibility for your part in the past so that you can create something new in the future. Red Jasper helps to balance this energy and encourages you to find solutions to any and all problems that are holding you back. It harmonizes the energy of the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras.OctahedronCommonly used for healing, forgiveness and self-reflection, this Platonic solid raises your vibration and forges a connection between your inner and outer worlds. Calcite compliments this shape by stimulating the solar plexus chakra and bringing an end to self-doubt. Instead, it directs your energy toward creativity and growing confidence.DodecahedronThe ideal Platonic Solid for meditation, this shape brings your vibration up so that you can experience divine creation first-hand. It comes from within you. Green Aventurine opens the heart chakra, attracting peace, love and harmony from far and wide. SphereThe simplest shape on the list, the sphere is actually the only shape that can contain all the others. All its dimensions are equal which makes it the perfect conduit for ultimate balance. Lapis Lazuli encourages you to express this inner truth by way of the throat chakra. It expands awareness and is ideal for self-realization.IcosahedronSymbolizing water, the icosahedron summons transformational energies. Just as water easily changes from a liquid to a solid or gas, so does your energy change. It gives you the freedom to take life as it comes. Amethyst mirrors this with its relaxing properties. It dissolves sadness and negativity, preferring to direct energy toward intuition and self-development. That makes it perfect for opening the third eye chakra.MerkabaThis mystical shape brings together opposing energies and harmonizes them completely. Channel the energy of this stone to align the mind, body and spirit. It’s said to transport consciousness to higher dimensions, as if it were a vehicle for the spiritual realm. Clear Quartz helps bring balance too, reflecting the properties of the merkaba. It’s known to expand awareness, open the crown chakra, and heal every cell of the body.Achieve complete and utter balance with these seven sacred shapes.How to use these crystalsThese stones are perfect for meditation. Pick one that calls to you and place it in your palms. Close your eyes and feel its energy. Don’t focus too hard. Just bring your attention to the crystal and its power. If thoughts occur, don’t berate yourself. Simply observe and acknowledge them, then bring your attention back to the crystal. Feel its energy pass through the space between you. Alternatively, you could make a crystal grid or use all seven stones for a chakra-healing meditation.As the stones are natural, the colors may vary slightly from stone to stone, making each one utterly unique.
