Is a metal pyramid frame harmful?
Copper is a wonderful, naturally-occurring metal that is perfect for meditation pyramids. For those in the business of designing and building (build healing pyramid), it has always been the standard. It remains the best for good reason. If you have a general interest in why copper is the best material, then please read how copper pyramid energy. If, however, you are concerned because of the ideas propagated by David Wilcock, please read why the best metal pyramid material is copper.
Are wood dowels conductive?
Not exactly a frequently asked question, but an important one to address as it points to a misunderstanding about the nature of a copper pyramid’s effect on our body and psyche. Wood is one of the least conductive materials. The question of a wood’s conductivity arises out of a concern over the viability of our oak-dowel assembly method. Let’s be clear: Our pyramids would all fail the conductivity test. You could not successfully pass electricity or heat through them. They do not rely on the conductive process (as we understand it) for their energetic effect. Read more on the power in a copper pyramid frame.
Why is there no capstone?
Holding to geometry and our image of a perfect pyramid, we might prefer our copper pyramid come to a precise point at the apex. Unfortunately, no pipe-based pyramid can naturally come to this point for the simple fact that we are dealing with pipes. You have likely observed that some pyramid designers fashion sheets of copper together with couplings to act as capstone. This, however, adds a significant amount of unnecessary metal and bottlenecks (impedes) the flow of energy. More on 1) how capstones are optional, and 2) what alternatives we’ve developed for capstones and copper pyramids.
Why is there no copper pipe base?
Our copper pyramids are portable and collapsible. The base of each pyramid is made from coated, copper electrical wire. Some copper pyramid builders choose to build pyramids entirely from copper pipes (making them much more difficult to set up, transport, etc). This triggers the question “Does it make a difference?” We have been building and meditating under these pyramids for over thirty years. Having built and meditated under both, we can reassure you from our collective experience that the difference in base material does not alter the effectiveness of the pyramid— as it is the sides of a pyramid that create its energetic effects. How can this be so? For a more detailed answer, consider our article on whole copper pipe pyramids versus collapsible models.
What does assembly require?
Assembly means lining up holes (using color codes on the pipes) and inserting screws. Both assembly models (once assembled) and non-assembly models are all-in-one, with no exterior parts (nothing to misplace). One of the advantages of an assembly model is that it can be taken apart and reassembled in the event of travel or moving to a different space. Here is an assembly guide that offers more information on our copper pyramid assembly kits.
Which is best, Giza or Nubian?
The difference between Giza and Nubian involves vibration and frequency. The different frequencies are a result of the slope of the pyramid. You can learn more about the energy generated by slopes in our article on pyramidal shape healing. In addition, for a quick guide to how Giza and Nubian pyramids affect our development differently, consider this article on pyramid meditation techniques.
Why is 51.83° slope important?
51.83 degrees is the angle of slope of the sides of the Great Pyramid of Giza and is the angle and degree that we honor when we build Giza style meditation pyramids based on its dimensions. Read more about this critical angle as well as how and why it affects our energy centers in this article that explores copper pyramids and healing.
What size pyramid is best for me?
Keep in mind that the size of the pyramid does not change the power. A larger size simply allows for more room. You may want to try our walk-thru series that your pyramid needs with our available sizes before you buy a pyramid for meditation.
Why "Sitting," "Yoga," etc.?
Except for the difference in slope (Nubian or Giza), all our copper pyramids are essentially the same. The qualities remain the same, regardless of size. The names have been associated with different sizes to suggest potential uses and nothing else. All pyramids are useful for meditation, yoga, stretching, self-healing, grounding– provided there is enough space for these activities.
Will my bed fit under the pyramid?
Many of our customers sleep under their pyramids. You will need to know bed size (King, Queen, Full or Twin) as well as bed height (from floor to bedding). Be sure to double-check the floor space that is needed for each size pyramid. Here is that page with more information on placing pyramids over beds.
How does the pyramid work to heal?
Similar to how crystals and gemstones work to heal us, the shape and frequency that emanates from a pyramid acts as a reminder (like a tuning fork) to those myriad of bodily structures that have a similar geometric pattern as their base. We experience these more perfectly sustained patterns and are both unconsciously and consciously compelled to align with them. This is how we heal and this is how we recognize the path to development. For more on this, consider our blog post on how pyramids work to heal us.
How could it help me meditate?
I’ve been meditating for over thirty years. It began as a way of relaxing but soon became a means to self-growth and has involved a series of awakenings. Like many, I have imagined that I might at some reach what one calls enlightenment. A copper pyramid can act as a guide for navigating these sensitive areas, particularly involving the crown chakra, as it simply energetically points the way home. For those who are just beginning, consider reading our article on meditating under pyramids.
Must I align with magnetic north?
Within the meditation pyramid community, there are disagreements on how one should set up a pyramid. Some believe a meditation pyramid must be positioned to align with an energetic grid that exists electromagnetically on the earth. The idea is that this will increase the energy inside your pyramid. This subject is explored in detail in our article on meditation pyramid positioning.
