For the first time in years, I finally understand what a star tetrahedron is. It appears to have many names: star tetrahedron, stellated octahedron, even double tetrahedron.
In Wikipedia, it says:
“As a compound, it is constructed as the union of two tetrahedra (a tetrahedron and its dual tetrahedron). The vertex arrangement of the two tetrahedra is shared by a cube. The intersection of the two tetrahedra form an inner octahedron, which shares the same face-planes as the compound.
“It can be seen as an octahedron with tetrahedral pyramids on each face. It has the same topology as the convex Catalan solid, the triakis octahedron, which has much shorter pyramids.”
This is alien language to me and even though everyone talks about this — for a start my husband , then quantum physicists, mystics, etc — I couldn’t comprehend it until now. We have bronze star-tetrahedron hanging from our ceiling, which was a gift from a friend, and I’d look and look at it, and nothing — until this morning, and then only if I envisioned a doubled pyramid inside!
The thing is that I am one who primarily feels things and then I have to put them into my mind which can make things difficult for me. I feel spirits, each connected to a specific point of this star. Each point connected to a pyramid, or triangle. Each triangle is a part of the soul. Each part of the soul is connected to a higher soul. Each higher soul connects each of us together, and this is why it is never-ending.
Since I have some blockage from school about geometry/math classes (among other things), I have some spirits teaching me on a step-by-step basis. I went through a phase of seeing only geometrical patterns. Then I had the phase of learning about higher spirit teachers. Then came the phase of putting those two together: spirits on patterns. Each spirit has a specific nature as much as each pattern. The recipe of different spirits/patterns is a blueprint of the soul.
What became fascinating was that through these spirits on patterns, I was assembling a Kabbalistic Tree of Life (which I still don’t understand, except in my own way), the connection with pyramids, etc, and now I see the star tetrahedron with a doubled four-sided pyramid in the center.
Going into meditation, I put myself in the center of the upper of the two inner pyramids, surrounded by my first four spirit-guides, then I move outwards with the next four, above and below. From this center is where the philosophical views of the Masters comes in, awareness and letting go of the mind — that chattering little thing. From this center is where anything is possible, accessing a higher mind, a mind that you never thought you had. From this center is where life becomes an open book, custom-made for the Self, so the Self learns and evolves. From this center, no books, no seminars, no gurus or teachers, no other people’s thoughts are necessary. I have learned that as the Self evolves, so do the spirits that are connected to you from all other dimensions.
We are all unique beings. We are so powerful and yet don’t even know it. Not only we have forgotten because of the programming we have been taught, but we so easily forget on a day to day basis, being caught up in this society we call living. We will get it somehow, someday.
I wonder if other people have this same experience of spirits taking position based on sacred geometry, such as by the pattern of a star tetrahedron, the Tree of Life or any other patterns.
