Can I benefit from crystal pyramids?

If you can relate to any of these statements, crystal pyramids can benefit you: 

  • You are drawn to the mysteries of the universe

  • You want to channel from the Great Beyond

  • You seek a sacred geometric shape for healing

  • You wish to increase your vibrations

  • You want to speed up your manifestations

  • You like attractive and professional display pieces

How does a pyramid generate energy?

A pyramid is a sacred geometrical shape that collects energy from the Universe and centers it down to us through the apex. When working with a crystal pyramid, you can imagine the energy of the Universe flowing from the top, spreading through the sides, and grounding itself at the base. 

Depending on your goal, the energy can be reversed. Your crystal pyramid can be programmed to release energy through the tip. In this case, you will direct your energy through the base of the pyramid so that it amplifies through the sides and streams out through the tip like you would do with a crystal wand. This is best done holding the stone with your dominant hand (right hand for right-handed people). 

If you are not actively holding your crystal pyramid, you can program the stone for your purposes and place it in an appropriate area to give or receive the intended energy. Think of it as an energy antenna, focusing your intentions out to the Universe or calling in your intentions into your space. Whenever you gaze upon your crystal pyramid, you will be reminded of your goals. 

What is pyramid healing power? 

Pyramids are known for their powerful healing property of preservation. The Pyramids in Egypt were created to preserve the mummies of ancient leaders. Items placed inside a metrically accurate pyramid will last longer than usual. This is why the pyramids in Egypt create a great energy vortex. Large pyramid structures are said to exist hidden in the Amazon rainforest as well.

The Native Americans lived in tee-pee tents, which like pyramids, collected energy and rejuvenated the people inside. Many people today enjoy incredible results working with pyramids for healing and lifestyle improvement. Crystal pyramids are full of pyramid power and can be used to benefit you in several ways.

What are the metaphysical healing properties of pyramids?

Metaphysically, the pyramid helps us cope with the changes in the body that are taking place at this very moment. They help us increase our vibration and frequency to keep up with the natural universal progression.

Now more than ever, we need the holy pyramid. As Earth shifts in the evolution of thought and energy (from the 3rd to 4th dimension), great changes are taking place in our physical and soul bodies.

How will holding a crystal pyramid make me feel?

Holding a pyramid is a joyful experience, and the more you practice, the more joy you generate.

Holding a pyramid is an intense and invigorating feeling. It creates a vortex of energy in your hand, which spreads down your physical body and around your aura. Basically, it funnels down the wisdom and healing of the Universe into the tips of your fingers.

Some people report a tingling sensation in the hands or all over the body. Other people can achieve a blurred state of mind that helps them into a light trance. In this trance, they can escape their ego and thoughts. Highly empathetic people may have clairvoyant and psychic visions triggered. Yet another person may feel nothing at all until several more experiences.

How do I use my pyramids in my healing practice?

Now that you know the top ways to use pyramids in your healing practice, let's take a deeper look at how you may do so. Before using your gemstone pyramids, we offer detailed instructions on how to program your crystals.

1. How Do I Use Crystal Pyramids for Energy Healing?

Surround yourself with pyramids. To benefit quickly and intensively from Pyramid Power, you can form a grid of pyramids around your body as you do a crystal layout or even while you sleep. The pyramids will draw down energy effortlessly, and your vibrations will increase. It will light your entire aura aglow.

If you have a practitioner doing bodywork for you, ask him or her to use your crystal healing pyramids as chakra stones. They can be placed directly on the body. This will draw the energy down into your chakras specifically.

When you use pyramids in crystal healing, you benefit from both the Power of Pyramids and also the individual healing properties of crystals you are using.

2. How do I use a crystal pyramid during meditation?

To use a crystal pyramid for meditation, place it directly in your hand or in front of you while you engage in your session. If you have a meditation space, it can be placed anywhere within that room or sacred area.

The pyramid naturally vibrates at the spiritual level because it is an important form of sacred geometry. The energy of the pyramid helps to raise your vibrations so you can achieve the next level of spiritual development.

3. How do I program my crystal pyramids for Reiki?

Pyramids are perfect for Reiki because Reiki operates on important universal symbols. It is possible to purchase crystal pyramids with Reiki symbols already inscribed into the stone. However, we at Satin Crystals prefer non-etched Crystal pyramids so that you can change your intentions according to your life experiences and needs.

Infuse Reiki energy into your pyramid to intensify powers. When you input your intentions into a crystal, it helps focus the healing benefits on your particular needs. This can be for more love, money, health, spirituality, or anything you desire.

4. How do I use crystal pyramids while doing yoga?

To benefit from crystal pyramid power while doing yoga, keep a crystal pyramid within your range of site. Yoga requires a lot of concentration while holding positions. Having the crystal pyramid in your line of sight gives you a focal point to gaze upon.

Since pyramids help to raise your vibration not only energetically but also in your physical body, they make the ideal choice as a yoga tool. The practice of yoga keeps your body and mind sharp, while the pyramid raises your physical and mental state as well.   

5. How do I use crystal pyramids for peaceful sleep?

To use the crystal pyramid for peaceful sleep, place it near your bedside. The pyramid will bring restful sleep, which melts stress from the physical body. Another pyramid should be placed near your mirror or vanity, where you focus on self-care.

Another popular way is to place your bed inside a giant copper pyramid. However, we found crystal pyramids to be just as good, and much more convenient.

The preservation powers of the pyramid have been revered by kings and queens; its benefits have been tried and proven over the centuries.

6. How do I make a crystal pyramid elixir for good health?

Place your crystal pyramid in or next to your water jug to make an elixir. Keep the stone there for 1-2 hours. This will energize your water supply, and convert into a direct physical benefit once you drink it. The pyramid power will help you preserve good health.

Please note that the pyramid must be cleaned before placing it in the elixir. Also, not all stones can be used to make elixirs. Selenite and Angelite, among other stones, cannot be in water because they are soft and will eventually dissolve.

Before using a crystal for a gem elixir, research the stone. Alternatively, any stone can be placed next to your water source for a similar effect.

7. How do I use crystal pyramids in a layout?

Pyramids are perfect for crystal layouts as they are flat on the bottom so they are easy to place on the body when lying down. They are also ideal to place around you on the floor during the layout as they don't need special stands like crystal balls or eggs.

Which crystal pyramid healing stone do I need?

There are two ways to choose a crystal healing pyramid. First, follow your intuition and collect the pieces that call to you. This is easy, simple, and correct because it is dictated by your subconscious, which will lead you to exactly what you need. You can visit our Pyramid Collection and see which crystal images draw you in.

For the more analytical folks, the other way to select is by healing property. Depending on what you wish to draw into your life, different crystals will help you reach these goals. Remember, all crystals have the healing Pyramid Power, and the type of stone is just another added bonus.

Here are some premium pyramids and their meanings:

Pyramids to Attract and Grow Love

The Heart chakra vibrates with pink and green stones. If you want to channel to the Universe that you are ready for love and receive the love the Universe has to offer, focus on pyramids like Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, and Serpentine. 




Pyramids for Wealth, Money, and Business Success

If you are ready for abundance, work with money pyramids to attract the success you seek. Learn how to call in the wealth you desire with pyramids like Aventurine, Pyrite, and Tigers Eye. 




Pyramids for Grounding, Health, and Self-Care

The base of the pyramid helps to ground the energies of the gemstone you are working with. Choose grounding stones and really anchor yourself to reality whenever you are feeling spacey and out-of-sorts. Connect with the Earth and root down into health with stones like Moss Agate, Jasper, and Garnet. 




Pyramids for Spirituality, Meditation, and Psychic Reading

Reach the peak of enlightenment with the aid of spiritual pyramids. These crystals focus on your Crown and Third Eye chakras to connect you with the Higher Realms. When you want to raise your vibrations and tap into your psychic powers, choose crystal pyramids in stones like Amethyst, Quartz, or Angelite.




Pyramids for Protection

When unwanted energies are out to get you, keep yourself safe with protection pyramids. These stones deflect negativity and keep you shielded in a positive aura. Pyramids for protection include stones like Obsidian, Labradorite, and Shungite. 




Lisa's personal experiences with pyramids

While there are many different uses for crystal pyramids, I use them mostly for meditation. Holding pyramids alters my energies in a way only sacred geometrical shapes can do.

Sometimes I channel wisdom and healing down from the Universe into the apex and capture it in my hands. Sometimes I send my manifestation intentions from my body into the stone and up into the Universe. The pyramid is like a little antenna that sends signals up and down between two worlds. For meditation work, I usually pick higher chakra stones like Amethyst, Lapis, Sodalite, Iolite, and Angelite.

Meanwhile, when I decorate my home and spaces with pyramids, I often choose earthy grounding stones like Agate, Shungite, and Obsidian. They keep the energy rooted and are protective. A Black Tourmaline pyramid near the front door removes negativity before people enter. A Green Crocodile Jasper pyramid in the garden protects the space while rejuvenating plants.

There are many benefits to crystal pyramids. How do you use yours?

Sheila's personal experiences with pyramids

For me, the pyramid shape is an attractive display piece. I have a whole row of gemstone pyramids lining my shelf right below my television in my office. It brings a balance between the electronic world and the natural one. 

These little pyramids remind me of the Great Pyramids and connect me with this awe-inspiring feat of humans? or spiritual beings from beyond? They remind me that there are still so many mysteries left to solve in this life, but that it's also okay not to have the answers, and just to enjoy the present moment in bliss. 

What is an orgone pyramid?

Orgone pyramids are another popular healing tool. Quartz and other crystals are encased in resin, along with metal, to form the pyramid. It is believed that this mixture of stones and materials helps harness the power of the pyramid, and also deflects electromagnetic pollution. 

The concern we have about Orgone pyramids is that they are not as natural as crystals, due to the heavy use of fiberglass resin. However, you can also opt to make your own Orgone pyramid so you know exactly what is in it. 

Was a crystal pyramid found in the Bermuda Triangle?

There has been hype that a crystal quartz pyramid was found under the waters of the Bermuda Triangle. It was believed that maybe the pyramid was the cause of the disappearance of vessels and paranormal activity. Others say this crystal is from the lost continent of Atlantis.

However, these stories are not backed by scientists. It could be a giant hoax. What do you think? Is the crystal pyramid made up to fuel supernatural stories? Or is there really a crystal quartz pyramid, and the cover-up is to deny it?
