Making Your Own Orgonite - A Generator for Attracting and Purifying energy
~ The making of Orgonite ~
A finished product! ~ Hardened polyester resin with metals, copper, gold flakes and crystals within.
Orgonite is a composition of catalyzed organic resin, metals & crystals coalesced together, to create a generator which does attract and purify etheric energy-- this energy also known as Chi, Prana, the Fifth Element-- or Orgone.
"Orgone energy is not a new invention, but the name given by the late psychoanalyst and scientist Dr. Wilhelm Reich to the omnipresent life force. This etheric force is also known as prana, chi or ether to different ancient traditions. With Orgonite, we have a universal and very potent healing tool that can help us reverse the negative influences of aggressive human technologies on the environment." ~~http://www.orgoniseafrica.com/english/
When searching online about articles of a variety of activist responses to the world stage issues, I came across a group of folks who were still creating and sharing with one another, this substance called Orgonite. My ears perked up when coming to understand that these easily created pieces of resin, copper & metals and crystals could be a very assisting tool from the barrage of chemicals and or 'negative energy' which is afoot, in our world. It is found through Dr. Wilhelm Reich's work, that metal will attract orgone (etheric, life force energy) and then release it. This process of attraction of orgone energies, with metal happens very, very quickly. So, in a concentrated piece of Orgonite, with metal shavings within, it effectively can attract all energy. Energy which is distorted or 'armored' as Dr. Reich called it, gets shaken loose, most easily by the concentrated metal and crystals, in Orgonite. Then, upon being released, the energy becomes free flowing energy, again. I made an immediate connection to this process of energy purification with the Shamanic Modality healing practice of Extraction. From the shamanic perspective: No energy is 'bad,' perse, but more, perhaps, not in accord with the environment (the human body, or the body of land.) So when we find this discordant energy, we may see dis-ease begin to form. With utilizing Shamanic extraction techniques upon the body, such as sucking & spitting, drumming & rattling, cutting and brushing, are ways we can see misplaced, disharmonious energy shake loose and thus-- healing can come forth in the body.

Also in my Shamanic healing practice, I find the aid of crystals to be very beneficial. I, then, thought that integrating Orgonite with crystal healing would be fun & helpful! Via having a piece of Orgonite in a healing room, under a Reiki table, or actually utilizing the Orgonite in tandem with crystals placed on a client's body, Orgonite could potentially be a wonderful assistant in Shamanic modality sessions with Reiki or any holistic healing technique. So, this is all coupled with how Orgonite's composition does breathe in energy & then release energy, more purified. This purification is through the metaphysical ability of the metals attracting energy and the Quartz-- to aid, also, in the purifying. A new tool to aid in Shamanic modality practice seemed clear, to me! I decided to begin the project of creating Orgonite.
Some great links regarding Orgonite creation:
To make it even more fun, I invited a friend to join and assist me in the process of my Orgonite creation!
My friend, Vinny, with chopstick, evening out the metals and crystals within the resin.
When working with these metals and resins, taking proper precautions to protect yourself is necessary.
The poly & epoxy resins and catalysts for hardening are very heavy chemicals with toxic fumes. Also, they are quite dangerous for your skin. You definitely want to do any Orgonite making project in the OUTDOORS & also wear safety goggles, gloves and even a mask.
To begin creating Orgonite is a relatively easy project and also, not too expensive to gather the needed materials. An Orgonite piece calls for a balanced ratio of metal and resin (polyester, urethane or epoxy.) Quartz is called for, to be added in varying amount, and can be positioned in a cross pattern (the four directions).
Indeed, you can get as creative as you'd like with your creations. As long as it's organic material which you're using, allow your mind to expand to create your piece of Orgonite HEALING art. I've heard that people at times will also use 'Tree resins' or 'Bees' wax' for less of the chemical quality that the poly and epoxy resins do have. Using smaller or larger crystals, various semi precious stones than depicted in the photo above is also a wondrous option. "The resin in orgonite shrinks during the curing process, permanently squeezing the quartz crystal inside which creates a well-known piezoelectric effect inside the crystal, meaning its end-points become polarized electrically, this apparently causes it to function more effectively as a positive energy generator. Although crystals improve the function of orgonite, they are not necessary for the orgonite to work." ~~http://www.soul-guidance.com
Also using colourful sea glass in your Orgonite pieces is a popular choice. You may want to add dyes to your molds to have more colour variety, as well! Enjoy the variety of the internal formations of Orgonite! Just remember, before you pour the resin, spray the mold which you're using with silicone release wax. This is so that the Orgonite piece can release easily, either on its own or by placing the mold in your freezer, as the resin hardens. All kinds of shapes can be made in molds: pyramids, cones, disks, cylinders and pendants, to name a few.
AND, the USES for Orgonite expand in varieties too!: Combat pollution and cell-tower radiation, clear energies in homes and offices, be used as a shield from psychic attack by being worn as a pendant, utilize as cloudbusting technologies and to enhance the growth of plants in gardens. In my eyes, the healing shaman of modern society, (YOU reading this article!) finds resources to bring healing, to all facets of life.
And of course, Orgonite seems to work also really well in healing work.
In this picture above, the piece of Orgonite (with mostly copper as the metal consistency and also quartz & moonstone) is with a raw piece of Chrysocalla, here. In this healing session, I asked a friend to participate in feeling the vibratory difference, in a Reiki session, with the use of crystals with the addition of Orgonite. Originally, as my friend was on the Reiki table, I asked for her to describe the feeling she had with solely the Chrysocolla near her Throat Chakra. One of the specialities of the blue-green Chrysocolla is metaphysical healing and balancing of the throat chakra. My friend noted that the Chrysocolla felt very powerful for her, on this day. It felt, to her, almost as though the Chrysocolla was very strongly ’pulling out’ some remnant grief energy. I, then, asked permission if I could add the piece of Orgonite, next to the Chryscolla, pictured above. Indeed, my friend felt it appropriate to add the Orgonite piece. After adding it, my friend did then, immediately, report the intensity which she was feeling, was taken down, quite a few notches. She reported feeling now, more at ease. Hence, then, my friend was able to relax more, to receive some Reiki. ((I usually do not leave any stone on a client longer than 12 minutes. I usually remove the stone and may just place the stone around the table or underneath the table. I keep this true, even for Orgonite.))
I went into this Orgonite adventure feeling hopeful, but not certain that I’d find drastic differences with utilizing Orgonite. I am truly delighted to report that this session and sessions beyond were all beautifully assisted well, by Orgonite. The composition of Orgonite really brought assistance of balance through its ability of the re-uptake of energy, purification and release. Orgonite seems to be a great compatible stone to other crystal healing friends.
Another way Orgonite has assisted friends of mine, is a testimony from a couple with a new baby in their household. This couple had been reporting to me that they were having not only physical vibration disturbances in their home, interfering with their peace, but also sound vibrational disturbances. Smudging and also salting around the corners of their home, just didn’t seem to bring about any substantial changes to these mysterious disturbances. So, I decided to give four pieces of small Orgonite pendants to this couple to place in the four directions, around their bedroom. I didn’t know what they’d report back to me. Soon, I received a report via a phone call, that, to my friends’ joy, — all vibrational disturbances had ceased in their home, since the Orgonite has been placed in their space! The assistance of how Orgonite extracts misplaced energy, balances energy and purifies, shows, yet again, how it is a SHAMANIC TOOL for healing and peace.
And for me, personally, this past month, being in a series of many ups and downs, I’ve kept my Orgonite near, during & through it all. Whenever I’ve felt like I was struggling with staying grounded, I found that even glancing my eyes upon the Orgonite on the altar in my home, the Orgonite served as a mindfulness bell. It would remind me to bring myself back to my breathing and thoughts of Healing, Balance and Purification.– Indeed, this is what the Orgonite represents: Potentials which we all have inside ourselves to bring transformation and healing, to all facets of Life.
Whether working with tools for healing or simply using our breath, Let us all come back to the truth that... All we need for healing will be brought to us and through us, in the present moment.
From my new Orgonite Healing Ranch, in my neck of the woods, to yours...Aho! Mitakuye Oyasin....
