All pyramids on this site are available internationally (outside the US). Some pyramids that are ordinarily non-assembly models will be made assembly models in order to ship to countries with restrictions on package length. In addition, the larger assembly models with two-part assembly will instead require three-part assembly. Again, these adjustments are necessary due to limitations that the postal service places on package length.
Due to the recent popularity and interest in Russian Nubian non-metal pyramids and the work of David Wilcock on Gaia's Source Field Investigations, concerns have emerged about the use of metal in pyramids, including the level of effectiveness and what may be an impact on health. Copper has been the material of choice for meditation pyramids for over thirty years (when meditation pyramids began to emerge during the new age movement of the mid 1980's). Copper can be found in the human system. Copper is in our blood and necessary for our health. Copper as a gemstone has healing properties. PVC, in contrast, is a recognized carcinogen by the World Health Organization. For more on all of this, please consider reading the following article: The Best Materials for Meditation Pyramids.
This is a question that many ask, seeing that there are pyramids of various angles and the curiosity around what the different angles may affect vibrationally. I have explored this in the following article: Which is Best for Me, Giza or Nubian?.
51.83 degrees is the angle of slope for the sides of the Great Pyramid of Giza and is the angle and degree that we honor when we build a copper pyramid based on its dimensions. Read more about this critical angle here: Pyramid shapes, angles and frequencies.
Keep in mind that the size of the pyramid does not affect the power. A larger size simply allows for more room or activity in or under the pyramid. There are limits on package size for anything shipping outside the U.S. For choosing the best size, you may want to try our new question and answer walk-through to help you choose the right pyramid for you.
If you are trying to fit an entire bed under your pyramid (with frame and box springs), I would suggest doing some careful measuring and perhaps the 61-Inch Apex model would work. For mattresses or futons on the floor, everything you need to know about how a mattress or futon might fit under the pyramid can be found on the Choose Giza Sizes by Position page, then click "Supine" and scroll down.
This is another frequently asked question. Holding to geometry and our image of a perfect pyramid, we would naturally prefer our copper meditation pyramid come to a precise and well-cut point at the apex. Unfortunately, no pipe-based pyramid can naturally come to this precise point for the simple fact that we are working with pipes. Some designers fashion a chunk of copper to sit on top of the pipes but this adds a good amount of unecessary metal. This excess metal actually bottlenecks and impedes the flow of energy. If you are after the aesthetic and want it to be attractive, then this would be all good and well. However, if you are in this for the energetic influence, you are better off without. We do offer an alternative. For more on this subject and a look at our alternative, check out this article regarding capstones.
When I first came up with the design for this portable model, it was certainly a concern. The full-frame skeletal pipe versions had become fairly popular and there was a natural assumption that the entire pyramid shape must be represented in pipes. However, I remembered that my initial experiments with pyramids in the mid-80's had no baselines at all and were very effective. It turns out that this model performs energetically as well as any full-frame model I've built. The power is in the shape and that shape is defined by the side pipes. You only need read the reviews to get a sense of how well they work.
Baselines are a natural product of the fact that pyramids are mounds of material built on a flat plane. If you lean pipes in at the proper angles to meet at an apex, baselines are suggested by where the four sides touch ground. You needn’t draw an actual line in the sand at the base of the Great Pyramid. The stones are there and rise up to form the pyramid. Likewise, you needn’t extend copper pipes from corner to corner to make the pyramid more a pyramid.
The copper wire helps, and not just because they are so useful in dictating the proper angles when stretched out and extended. It completes the skeletal shape using the same element (cooper). I believe it is this that allows our unconscious to recognize the shape (the pyramid being a shape one that is repeated throughout kingdoms and species in nature) and energizes it as if taking it on as a new home– and this is part of what leads to the sense of safety and containment we enjoy when inside it.
Assembly means lining up holes and inserting four screws. Both Assembly models (once assembled) and Non-Assembly models are all-in-one, with no exterior parts (nothing to misplace) and can be set up (or, put away) in seconds. One of the advantages of an Assembly model is that it can be taken apart (disassembled) in the event of moving house. For International Customers (destinations outside the US or Canada), pyramds that are ordinarily non-assembly models will be made assembly models in order to ship to countries with restrictions on package length. Details on assembly can be found here.
This is good question. What kind of crazy magic is going on here, after all? Well, I can make it simple. First of all, copper is conductive. Secondly, the natural world (and this includes our bodies) is made of energy and that energy is electromagnetic. Thirdly, every organ, function and system in our body corresponds to a geometric form (like all forms in nature). Geometry is how nature creates forms. Similar to the way crystals and gemstones work to heal us, the shape and frequency that emanates from a pyramid acts a reminder (like a tuning fork) to those myriad of bodily structures and functions. We experience these original organic tones and are both unconsciously and consciously compelled to align with them. This is how we heal and this is also how we recognize the path to development on all levels, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
But for the difference in angles (i.e. Nubian vs. Giza), all of our copper pyramids are essentially the same. The size differences allow for various practices, postures, activities. The healing qualities remain the same, regardless of size. These names have been associated with different sizes to suggest potential uses, not a difference in effectiveness. The focus for prospective buyers (once you have decided on Nubian or Giza) should be on what size best fits your needs. All pyramids are useful for meditation, yoga, stretching, self-healing, grounding, etc.
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. According to much that I’ve read, this can be a tricky business and for it one needs a spiritual teacher or Guru. Well, I have a resistance to giving my power away to anyone by letting them decide where I am developmentally. The pyramid has solved this. It turns out that it is the perfect guide for navigating these sensitive areas, particularly involving the crown chakra, as it simply energetically points the way home. I recommend it to all who meditate.
I’m not sure how or where this idea got started. There may very well be some validity to it, but I honestly have never felt any noticeable difference due to (what should probably be referred to as) "pyramid orientation." Some believe that one corner or side of the pyramid should face magnetic north. If you have any substantial information on this phenomenon, and can speak from personal experience, please share it with me and I will gladly add it to this site. In the meantime, here are more of my thoughts on the subject of pyramid orientation.
