The Holon of Balance
From the Hathor Message of February 3, 2007
“We suggest you experiment
with this; play with this, and master this very simple geometry. Carry it with
you in your conscious awareness at all times so that you may create it at will,
as needed, both for yourself and those you are connected to.
“It is called a Holon, and the specific one we refer to is the Octahedron, or the Holon of Balance. Imagine yourself surrounded by a pyramid of light that extends above you and a matching pyramid below you. These are square-based pyramids, one pointing up, and one pointing down. You are in the center of this. If you are lying down, you are on the square, where the two halves of pyramids touch, and the pyramid above you matches the pyramid below you. You make this as large or as small as you wish, so long as you are completely enclosed within it.
“If you are standing
or sitting, the axis of the octahedron extends through the center of your body,
so that if you were to draw a line through the apex of the pyramid through the
center down to the apex of the opposite pyramid, this line would pass through
the center of your body. This octahedron balances energy. It is the balancing
of the male and female aspect of consciousness. Do not let its simplicity fool
you. It is a powerful tool for balancing subtle energies.”
Some Observations from Tom
The octahedron is one of
five three-dimensional geometric shapes known collectively as the Platonic Solids.
The octahedron has a total of eight sides, thus the root octa, meaning eight.
The top pyramid has four sides and the bottom pyramid has four sides, and the
bases of both pyramids meet to form a square. The Platonic Solids can be found
occurring naturally in nature, especially in the form of crystalline structures,
as well as atomic and molecular configurations. Esoterically speaking, each
of the Platonic Solids has specific energetic effects. Some people have emailed
us and asked if the octahedron is the same as the star tetrahedron, and no,
it is not. The star tetrahedron consists of two triangular based pyramids, and
they are not joined at the base. They merge into each other. The star tetrahedron
also has different energetic effects from the octahedron.
When I first received information about the Holon of Balance from the Hathors, I thought it was pretty simplistic. But sometimes the simple things are the best. There is no doubt in my mind that this Holon imparts a feeling of balance and protection when it is engaged.
Further Elucidation on the Holon of Balance
We have received several emails asking us to clarify the Holon of Balance. First of all, this information is for those who have said they need a more basic understanding of this particular Holon (the octahedron). It is not intended for the advanced student of sacred geometry. I have purposefully kept this simple. And the reasons are two-fold. For one, you do not need to have a complex understanding of the Holon of Balance in order to use it. And two, many people are turned off by complex geometries. Since this Holon is highly effective and simple to use, I have chosen not to complicate matters. In other words, I choose not to go into detail about the subtleties between the various Platonic solids or the intricacies of working with them esoterically.
Here is a little sketch of an octahedron, since sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
An octahedron is basically two square-based pyramids joined at the base.
The Holon of Balance is created by forming an octahedron of light around you through the power of your imagination.
It doesn’t matter what color you make it. The color may change spontaneously, depending upon your state of mind. Personally, I make mine clear white light, but that is a personal preference, not dogma. In fact there is very little dogma around this, thank God, thank Goddess.
The main thing is to make
sure that you are completely enclosed in the space of the octahedron. If, for
instance, you are lying down, the base of both pyramids (where they meet at
the middle of the octahedron) will most likely be right underneath you. But
you could put yourself anywhere inside the geometry. You could hover up at the
top, or sink down to the bottom, or slide over into a corner. It doesn’t
matter. And you don’t have to orient yourself to any direction in particular,
like north, south, east, west, etc. There are also no prayers, incantations
or special breaths required. The whole affair is quite simple. And this may
be one of its many saving graces, besides the fact that it works.
If you are standing or sitting, the axis of the octahedron (i.e. the imaginary line that runs through the top of both pyramids to meet at the center), would, most likely, pass through the central axis of your body (running through the crown at the top of the head, through the perineum). But you could imagine yourself up near the apex of the top pyramid or down at the apex of the lower pyramid. In other words, the central plane of the octahedron—the place where the two pyramids meet to form a square—could be aligned anywhere on your body. Perhaps you will have it aligned with your heart, or maybe your head, or perhaps your feet. It does not matter—at least as far as its balancing effects are concerned. In actual fact, some alignments of the center square with your body (i.e. where the square passes through you) may affect you stronger than others. So I say—experiment! Find out what works best for you. Although I am being redundant, let me say it again. It doesn’t matter where you put yourself in the octahedron, where you orient it, or what color you make it. The main thing is to make sure you are completely inside it.
One final point about the geometry, since some people have emailed us with this question—is the octahedron the same as the star tetrahedron? No it is not. They are distinctly different geometries. Since I am purposefully not going into the details of the differences, if you are interested in further information I suggest using your Internet search engine to explore the fascinating worlds of geometry and its complement—sacred geometry. There’s a whole world of information out there just waiting to be discovered. And it’s all at your fingertips with just a click of your mouse!
In the message of Jan. 18, 2007, the Hathors gave some information about sending the Holon of Balance to places or persons in distress—in order to impart a balancing energy. In this instance, creating the Holon of Balance (octahedron) is very similar except for the fact that you are obviously not inside the Holon—the person, persons or area of the world you are sending the Holon to, is inside the Holon. In other words, if I send a Holon of Balance to an area of the Earth, I imagine this area inside the Holon.
You can send these Holons of Balance anywhere on the Earth you wish—or anywhere in the universe for that matter (if your belief system takes you there). Sending Holons of Balance is a kind of benevolent act, but there is a caveat—don’t mess with other people’s reality. In other words, everyone has a right to his or her own suffering. Just because you or I would like someone to be in a more resourceful state, doesn’t mean that they want to be. We all have a right to be sad, angry, confused or whatever, for as long as we want. Sometimes it gets a bit fuzzy. Maybe we have a friend or a family member in distress, and we want to make things better. But to project our intentions on others when it is not what they desire, is, I think, a misuse of subtle energy. And so my suggestion is to send the Holon of Balance not as an imperative or an imposition, but as an invitation, a breath of fresh air so to speak. If we send a Holon as an energetic offering of balance to those who choose to accept it, without attachment that they do anything, then we are, I think, sending Holons into the world in the right manner.
My suggestion is to make learning how to create the Holon of Balance a game. Play with it. Spin it maybe. Make it different colors. Find where it feels best to you to place yourself inside the geometry. Practice it at odd times in the day. Create the Holon of Balance in all types of places. No one will know what you are doing. Do it when you are shopping, taking out the trash, feeding your pet, taking a walk, or during those damned commercials when you’re watching TV. The list of where and when you can take a Holon break is virtually endless. The thing is to practice it enough so that when you feel off-centered—emotionally or energetically off-keel—you can, without thought, create the Holon of Balance. Then it becomes a great ally. It will be one of your best friends, and unlike a dog, you don’t have to feed it, or take it for a walk, and it won’t chew up your newspaper.
