WHAT IS AN ORGONITE?
To understand what is an Orgonite, first we should need to know how it works but understanding what Orgone is.
THE ORGONE THEORY
Wilhelm Reich, an Austrian psychoanalyst developed the ‘ORGONE’ Theory in the 1930s. After many experiments, he proposed that an etheric bio-energetic life force existed that animated our environment. His idea wasn’t unique – most traditional cultures held a common belief in an invisible life energy animated the material world – called Chi in Chinese, Prana in the Indian system, Mana by the Polynesians, and by many other names across the Planet.
In Reich’s view the key to physical and mental health was the balance of this orgone energy which he divided into two categories – ‘Positive Orgone Energy’ (POR) and anti-biological ‘Deadly Orgone Energy’ (DOE). He saw positive orgone as organized, structured and coherent, while anti-biological deadly orgone energy was ‘stagnant’ and lead to decay and entropy – very similar to the idea of ‘blockages’ in Chinese medicine.
Reich built various orgone devices such as the Orgone Accumulator Box (composed of alternating layers of wool and metal) which accumulated and infused a patient with a high concentration of orgone energy. Faster healing, increased plant growth, and positive effects on cancer were noted.
Orgonite has become very popular as a spiritual healing tool, and as protection against electromagnetic pollution (EMF). These subtle energy tools interact and transform orgone or life energy.
Orgonite is a mixture of catalyzed fiberglass resin with metal shavings, particles or powders, poured into molds. It is said to attract aetheric energy similarly to Reich’s accumulators. Some people also add a couple of crystals to the mixture for their ability to make the energy more coherent or to enhance the working the orgonite. Thus orgonite basically is a substance which functions as a self-driven, continuously operating, highly efficient energy transmutation device, drawing in negative life energy and transmuting it into positive energy. The resin in orgonite shrinks during the curing process, permanently squeezing the quartz crystal inside which creates a well-known piezoelectric effect inside the crystal, meaning its end-points become polarized electrically, this apparently causes it to function more effectively as a positive energy generator. Although crystals improve the function of orgonite, they are not necessary for the orgonite to work.
These devices are built with easy to find materials. Orgonite is simply a mix (approx. 50/50 ratio) of metal and resin (polyester, urethane or epoxy). It can be poured into all kinds of shapes: pyramids, cones, disks, cylinders and pendants, to name a few.
Many observations have shown that the Pyramid shape has it’s own particular energetic effects. This will add to the strong effect of the Orgonite and improve it slightly, especially when the pyramid is positioned in alignment with the north – south axis.
THE BENEFIT OF HAVING A ORGONITE
According to research, some people claim they sleep better with the pyramids. But where the pyramid is placed at night is a very individual thing. Some like to sleep with their pyramid very close to their beds, some love placing them right by the WiFi router, as this will often be the central hotspot of electromagnetic radiation within a home.
The pyramids are tools to help us hold a more harmonic space. The pyramids are helpful tools when you want to alleviate the EMFs from cellphones, wifi towers, and the like. They’re not necessarily going to make you enlightened, but they are certainly going to give you breathing room where you can do your meditation, rest more easily, or just relax more knowing that your home is a healthier environment.
