How to Build a Pyramid for Meditation
How to Build a Pyramid for Meditation.
I have built a number or meditation pyramids in my life. They have all been wonderful. Having moved around a good deal, I always end up trying to sell them at a garage sale, first as the pyramid and finally as useful copper tubing.
Like most things created by hand, the meditation pyramids I have created have each been an improvement over the previous, all benefiting from whatever problems I experienced with the previous versions. This is either my fifth or sixth pyramid. I can't recall exactly. It depends on whether we are going to count the one I made strictly out of copper electrical wire back in 1988.
My First Copper Meditation Pyramid
I was in New York City studying crystals, gemstones and other metaphysical or new age approaches to healing, self-development, etc. I had not had any real bouts with disease or illness at age 31, and was fascinated with these ideas and applications from a consciousness-expanding and spiritual perspective, eager to experience deeper and more grounding levels of awareness and understanding.
I must have read something about the pyramid in a book on crystals and gemstones by Gurudas. I still have the book. It is a two book series. I was intuitively drawn to build this pyramid or something like it that was mentioned in the book. I felt it to be important, and I wanted to see if I could actually feel the energy at work on my body. I also owned several paperbacks that were titled "Pyramid Magic" or "Pyramid Power" or something of the sort which were almost impossible to read and had nothing of real value to them. So, the fascination was there.
I'm a very practical guy and needed the proof of my own experience. Exclamation points in sentences and bright colors on the face of a book are not going to convince me of anything. You can still find these books near the watered down, poorly written astrology books in used book stores. If you are going to understand and appreciate any science, including those more metaphysical in nature, it is necessary to get past all of the poorly written material until you discover a writer who knows what they are writing about. This, or you venture into it yourself.
Why not BUY a pyramid instead?
