I first heard about the power of pyramids back in the 90’s. The first books on the subject appeared in the early 70’s, such as Pyramid Power by Dr Patrick Flanagan (As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases). There is a lot of research, studies and experiments in these books and online to explore if you want to.
I purchased my first Copper Pyramid about 10 years ago from someone who was making and selling them on Ebay. I have been using them ever since.
Different Types of Pyramids
They are three dimensional pyramid frames, mostly made of copper bars or pipes. They may be made from other metals such as Aluminium and Titanium but usually they are mixed with or coated with Gold. Some Copper Pyramids are also Gold Plated. Copper and Gold are very powerful electrical conductors which is why they are used.
They can be small or large enough to sit in and meditate. I am just talking about the smaller sizes used to place items in like crystals.
Most of these are made to the exact angles and proportions of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. There are also more pointed ones based on the Nubian Pyramids which also use very specific angles. Different makers make them differently, some have a cap (Capstone) at the top or a hook to hang things.
Others may have other geometric forms or crystals attached and I have seen some come with an additional platform on the top. Some come in kit form, and need to be assembled.
What Are They Used For?
These devices are used for a wide range of things such as boosting the potency and energy of fruit, water and vitamins. This is called ‘pyramid charging’ and is believed to increase the power of things placed inside them.
Pyramids also cleanse and balance energies, which is why I use them to cleanse my crystals. Many people feel that this also increases the energy and effectiveness of their healing crystals.
As I explained in my book Crystal Grids Power, you can also place a Copper Pyramid over a Crystal Grid. Not only will it keep the crystals cleansed and protected, it will greatly amplify the effects of the Crystal Grid for healing or manifesting.
The other benefit of using a pyramid for cleansing is they are so easy to use. You do not need to burn any incense, make any noise or actively clear things like many other methods. The Pyramid does all the work for you, so you can cleanse things while you sleep!
How Do They Work?
Despite the studies and tests people do at home, Pyramid Power is not likely to be fully accepted by mainstream science anytime soon. In the metaphysical community they are becoming and more and more popular. Pyramids are a very important structure in Sacred Geometry. They consist of four triangles with a square base.
The use of metals like Copper and Gold is to conduct energy. The specific angles and proportions of the Great Pyramid relate to the Planet and the Moon, so harmonise with the natural cycles and connect with the Earth’s magnetic field, energy centres and Ley Lines. These are all environments that minerals and crystals feel at home in. Pyramids are also said to be natural ionisers.
When properly aligned with the Earth’s magnetic field a pyramid amplifies energies, transmutes them and directs them out through the tip.
Where To Get a Copper Pyramid?
Copper is not cheap these days (either is Gold…) and due to the work involved in making these devices, pyramids can be expensive. If you can weld you could make one yourself, but it needs to be very carefully made and measured. It does not look an easy job.
It can be cheaper to buy one made by someone else like the ones on Etsy. Be sure to check proportions are done properly and remember that if the Copper pipes or bars are not specially coated or gold plated they will turn brown over time.
There are a few options for you in my Amazon Shop in the Crystal Tools section. Alternatively, you could get a Meru Pyramid from their website or somewhere that sells them. I bought mine from the Shamans Crystal website, which also has a great selection of crystals.
How To Activate & Align a Copper Pyramid:
How To Cleanse Crystals in a Copper Pyramid
1. Align one of the sides of your Pyramid to magnetic North with a compass (see diagram above).
2. Place your crystals inside the pyramid in the middle area, under the point or cap.
3. Leave them there for at least an hour or overnight to also boost their energies.
Please note that if you are using a Meru Pyramid which has a mandala base people that use this yantra do recommend you align the triangles to point to the East side to activate the mandala. The pyramid will work as long as it is aligned North but this could give it some extra energy, see what you feel.
