Sacred Geometry Meets Ancient Stones… Crystal Pyramids
The word pyramid is composed of the Greek word “pyra,” meaning fire, light, or visible and the Greek word “midos” meaning measures. “Pyramid” immediately brings to mind the three great Egyptian pyramids at Giza. The Great Pyramid of Giza has been called the center of measurement and enlightenment for centuries. In ancient Egypt pyramids symbolized the rise of earth from the primeval, with its strong solid base that rose to a single point. The lines and triangles invoke the sun’s rays coming to earth. The pyramid represented the meeting of two worlds, the worlds of the living and the dead. The Pyramids at Giza are the only one of the 7 wonders of the world and the oldest that has withstood the true test of time and the ravages of Mother Nature.
Ancient pyramids are not just found in Egypt. There are Mesoamerican pyramids, Chinese tomb pyramids, South American step pyramids, Mesopotamian ziggurats, North American mound pyramids, and even Roman ceremonial pyramids. These ancient structures have popped up across the globe right through the centuries in cultures who often have no connection to each another. Pyramids represent ancient technology that has inspired people of all cultures and ages. Ancient pyramids are found in Egypt, Iran, Peru, Mexico, China, Polynesia, Guatemala, India, Cambodia, Greece, France, Italy, and even the United States.
Pyramids had several functions. They were used as burial sites, landmarks, feeding stations, bomb shelters, and ceremonial sites; and there is evidence that many of them served several functions simultaneously. But most importantly, the pyramids, platforms and mounds around the world were places where the gods and mankind came together.
On this planet and throughout the cosmos, the pyramid is utilized to represent a great unity of consciousness. It is the structure of perfection that gathers energy from earth and sends it outward.
In Feng Shui the shape of the pyramid is believed to convert negative energy into positive focused energy. Negative energies are absorbed into the base of the pyramid. Energy that has been absorbed by the pyramid is then transformed into positive energy and released through the top point of the pyramid.
Gemstone Pyramids amplify and then tightly focus energy through the apex and enhance the inherent properties of the stone. The triangular sides of pyramids represent the mind, body, and soul while the four faces represent the four elements of nature, air, water, fire, and earth. Pyramids help you focus and attain your goals. The sacred geometry of the pyramid directs the energy of the gemstone or crystal through the apex, transforming negative energy into positive energy.
Whether you are using a crystal pyramid for meditation, reiki, massage, acupuncture, healing, or charging other gemstones, they are an effective tool to have in your crystal collection.
