The Making of a Copper Pyramid

Newly constructed copper pyramid on my rooftop.

The year of 2012 has been rather incredible for I found myself taking an interest in many things, mostly of spiritual nature, that I never before contemplated.  If you’ve been following me on Facebook lately, you’ll know that I literally woke up one day and suddenly became enamored with quartz crystals to the point where I actually went on a road trip this summer to Arkansas to dig them up!  You might want to put that on your bucket list.  It was an incredible experience.

Below you’ll see a table full of newly cleaned crystals from that expedition.  I’ll be sharing more on my experience with quartz crystals and other minerals in a future blog post.

A week after I came back from Arkansas, the universe told me there was a man right here in this town who owned gigantic crystals and I was eventually invited to see them at his property.  Imagine my surprise!  More on that as well in a future article.

And then I developed this strong need to connect with beings from other civilizations.  That, too, happened out of the blue.  Looking back, I see that this desire grew right around the time I decided to move into my current residence (March 2011).   I couldn’t get enough of books on the subject of UFO’s and crop circles.  My absolute all-time favorite is a book by Dr. Stephen Greer, MD entitled Hidden Truth – Forbidden Knowledge.  It was absolutely riveting and opened my eyes to what’s really out there.  I even learned how to vector in spaceships and have had at least 4 sightings from my rooftop.  Yep, you guessed it  – more on that later!

Like what happened with crystals and UFO’s, sacred geometrical shapes, particularly pyramids, have taken root in my consciousness lately.  What’s happening to me!?!  Haha.

I first became intensely aware of the existence of pyramids on Facebook where I witnessed a friend in Hawaii building them on his property for meditation and other purposes.  Over time the universe saw it fit to awaken those images deep inside my mind after reading something out of a book, admiring a piece of artwork, engaging in a random conversation with a friend, staring at a cluster of amethyst crystals or more frequently, while out on my roof stargazing in the evenings.

By the way, have you taken a close look at the night sky lately?  There’s plenty of pyramid-like configurations up there.  In short,  geometrical shapes are literally every where you look:  building designs, the night sky, artwork, the spokes of a bicycle and yes, even in nature!

Pyramids are becoming increasingly important now because the earth is shifting to higher vibrations and its gridlines are going into progressively higher octaves.   According to a friend who is very familiar with this information, the gridlines are moving from an icosahedron into a dodecahedron form which means grid points and lay lines all around the world are about to shift.  Basically what that means is some chakra points on the planet are being activated while other points are being deactivated in order to stabilize the new geometries on the planet.  Mother Earth has been busy shifting to higher dimensions and I’m assuming that one of the reasons I came to Earth at this time was/is to help with that shift, hence my sudden interest in pyramids.  In other words, I feel I’m becoming awakened on many,  many different levels.

Meditating Inside Pyramid

I intuitively feel I’m being called to work with and study crystals as well as sacred geometry to help uplift the planet and its collective consciousness.  While I’m slowly but surely “remembering” things, I still don’t fully understand my role but in due time I know it will become clearer.  I just need to be patient.  The same applies to you because, like me, you also chose to be here to assist humanity in some way, form or shape while it undergoes this critical shift to higher dimensions.

According to research, those who use pyramids to meditate have had their theta and alpha brain waves increased because they are energy emitters and carry high vibrational energy.  Dr. Carl Benedicks (a Swedish scientist) discovered that a pyramid produces a resonance or frequency inside.   Researchers say whatever items that are placed inside remain “charged” for a certain length of time after they’ve been taken out of the pyramid.   Even a burn ward in a Canadian hospital are using pyramids on their patients where after a few minutes inside one, they experience less pain.

The most common effects meditators experience while inside a pyramid include things like a sense of weightlessness, time distortion, tingling sensation of the skin, increase of skin temperature, and a  deeper “dropping off” in the transcendental state to name a few.  I believe a pyramid serves as a 3 dimensional turning fork for the body, helping with the cleansing and opening of the chakras (like the third eye), lowering of stress, increase in creativity and a balancing of energies.   Despite what we already know about the effects of pyramids and other geometrical configurations, they have other mysterious healing properties that science still has yet to identify.

As for my own personal experience so far, I’ve had tingling sensations in both hands (particularly the left one, my non-dominant hand), a “buzz” in and around my head and a sense of “dropping off” in the transcendental state, not to mention feeling a tremendous sense of calm and peacefulness.  In addition, I’ve also felt an increase of body temperature, which I feel indicates an increase of energy swirling around me while inside the pyramid. 

Now, I’ve only used my new pyramid a few times so far so we’ll see what effects it’ll have on me going forward.  Keep checking back for updates with my experiences!

Four 5 foot copper pipes, “M” type, 1/2″ diameter

Are you ready to start building one for yourself?

Well, then let’s get started!

After doing research online and consulting with Benjamin Dean from Copper Pyramid for Meditation and a friend from Hawaii named Oliver Huntley, I decided to build rather than purchase one.  Thanks to their advice, I pretty much had a good idea what I needed to do.  It became a fun and somewhat challenging 3 day project after which I felt a great sense of satisfaction when it was finally completed.

The first thing I did was to pay a visit to the plumbing section at Home Depot.   I’m assuming this will be your first attempt at building a pyramid; therefore, I recommend you start small with 5 foot copper pipes (unless you’re well over 6 feet in height – more on that below).

When you get there, you’ll see that you have a choice between 5 and 10 foot copper pipes and they come in two types, “L” and “M.”   The difference between the two is the thickness/density.   The “L” types are roughly 43% more expensive because they are slightly thicker/more dense than the “M” types but no more effective in terms of pyramid power.

They also come in three different diameters:   1/2″, 3/4″ and 1.”    According to my research, the 3/4″ and 1″ diameters make for bulky and cumbersome pyramids, at least for your first project, so I would start with the 1/2″ diameter pipes.  At Home Depot the ones I purchased were $7.92 each for a total of $31.68 for the four 5 foot, 1/2″ diameter, “M” pipes.

Ok good, so now you’ve put four 5 foot pipes in your shopping cart. What’s next?

Copper wiring!

18-Z Clear Lamp Wire – you will split this apart prior to inserting through the holes of the pipes on the bottom

You are making a collapsible pyramid which means the bases cannot be solid copper or otherwise.  The solution to that is purchasing stereo/lamp copper wiring.  They come in clear casing and can be split apart as you can see in the photo.

It’s called 18-Z Clear Lamp Wire.  I know that might sound gobblygook to you but any sales associate worth his salt will lead you right to the electrical section where they have a bunch of different wires, including this particular one, on different rollers.

As you will learn later, the length of your bases will be roughly 64 inches each (i.e. 5 feet and 4 inches) so you want to get more than you need so that you can comfortably tie a double knot at the 4 corners and cut off the excess wire.

I initially purchased 25 feet of copper wiring but I found that while that was sufficient, it didn’t really allow me the extra 5 or 6 inches (per base) to comfortably tie a double knot (I tied a single knot which so far has been just fine but you really want to tie a double knot for more security).  My recommendation is you purchase between 30 to 35 feet of copper wiring.  Home Depot was selling this kind for thirty-seven cents per foot which translated to $9 to $12 for the whole thing.  Not too shabby, hmm?

1  1/4″ key ring

Next, you will need a key ring to hold the pipes together at the top.  You can find one in any hardware store.   You want one that’s not too small or too big.  I opted for 1 1/4″ but after putting it together and seeing the poles a little too close together (but still manageable) the next time I build a copper pyramid, I am going to go for the slightly larger diameter of 1 1/2.”   I would buy a couple of them so that you have extra replacement key rings should the original break due to wear and tear.

The last thing you need before checking out of Home Depot is a cleaning solution to wipe off the sticky residue from the UPC labels as well as the red lettering on the pipes.  You want your pipes to be as clean as possible without any residue on it.  A very knowledgeable sales rep at Home Depot recommended an ultra power remover called Krud Kutter (see photo below).

After I scraped off the nasty UPC code labels (under running warm/hot water) and drying it off, I dabbed a few doses of Krud Krutter on a paper towel and very easily got rid of the sticky residue as well as the red letters. Apparently Home Depot denotes the “M” types with red lettering while the “L” types had blue imprints on them.  Go figure!

Used to clean off sticky residue and lettering

Armed with these materials, you are now ready to start building your first pyramid!

Drill Set

TOP:  First mark with a black marker where you’ll drill a hole for the top of the pipe.  It should be 1/4″ down from the edge.  Then take a hammer and nail to create a small dent in the marked spot. This is to help the drill bit catch on when you start drilling because otherwise the drill will keep slipping off (it still might but at least a small dent will help a little).

Using a drill bit size 3/16″, drill right through to the other side – this will be the top of your pyramid where you’ll be threading a key ring through.

BOTTOM:  Mark a spot 1/2″ from the edge of the bottom pipe and using drill bit size 15/64″, do the same thing you did for the top, drill right through the other side.  Make sure the bottom hole lines up with the top hole.  Again, drilling on copper surface is slippery business so be sure to create a dent on the bottom spot to at least minimize the slipping.

TIP:  As you’re drilling, don’t press down too hard – just go with the flow even if the drill slips.  Eventually it’ll catch on and you’ll be drilling right through in no time.  Try not to get frustrated.

This part will probably be the most tricky.  While I didn’t need it, you might want to have a pair of pliers handy to help you pull the key ring through the top holes because it took me several minutes to get it all the way through four pipes!

Based on my experience with the 1  1/4″ key ring and seeing how closely clustered the pipes become after spreading the legs out, I recommend you try the slightly larger 1  1/2″ diameter ring instead but nothing bigger.

TIP:  If this size proves to be too much room on top (I doubt it – I actually think it’ll work very well), pull that one out and insert  a 1  1/4″ key ring but nothing smaller (except maybe one that is 1  1/8″  – you might have to experiment with this).

After getting the key ring through the top, you’re ready for the last step of the building process.  As I mentioned above, you need to split apart the wire so you’re dealing with a single casing of copper wire rather than double.  If you attempted to tie a double knot using the double casing, you wouldn’t have enough room for another knot coming in from the other base to fit inside the 1/2″ diameter pipe.

But if you split the wire all around, you can easily fit two double knots (one from each adjoining base) inside each pipe.  While it’s true that by splitting the wire, you’ll have plenty of leftovers,  it’s not necessarily a bad thing because if somehow you make a mistake, you’ll have extra wire to play with!

Now, because I wanted to replicate the dimensions of the Giza Pyramid, I learned that the relationship between the bases and the sides is 1.05333.   Therefore, to determine the length of the bases, I simply multiplied 60 inches (i.e. 5 feet) by that number and came out with 63.2 inches.  So whatever the length of your pyramid is, simply multiply that with 1.05333.  My final dimensions came out to be roughly 64 inches on all 4 sides which is not perfect but close enough to the above mentioned calculation.

TIP:  You will be cutting 4 separate pieces of single casing wire, one for each base.  I recommend they be about 6 FEET each so that you have at least 6 INCHES of excess wire on BOTH ends in order to comfortably tie a double knot and cut off any excess wire.

A pyramid with 5 foot sides and roughly 64 inch bases will be approximately 3 feet and 3 inches in height. Note how taut the lines are on a carpeted surface. Plastic caps would be recommended if used on smooth surfaces.

Once you’ve constructed the pyramid, its height in the center will be roughly three feet and three inches when opened on the floor.   When someone like me with a height of  5’7″  is in a sitting position with a straight back in the center of the pyramid, he will have about 3 to 4 inches of clearance from the top.  It stands to reason that anyone whose height is up to 5’7″ will have no problem sitting inside this pyramid.

I have a friend who is slightly over 6′ tall and even he was able to sit inside the pyramid without touching the top.   But if you’re significantly over 6 feet tall, I recommend you construct a pyramid using 6 foot (or longer) pipes.

If for some reason you want to build a larger pyramid – most, if not all, places that sell copper only offer 5 and 10 foot pipes.  Home Depot informed me that for liability reasons they cannot cut it for you so I’m assuming you’ll need to buy one or at least borrow someone else’s.

When you are ready to use your newly constructed configuration (congratulations!!!), the pyramid should not be forcibly opened into position.  You’ll want to pay attention to the wires dangling below the pipes and not let them get entangled; otherwise you’ll have a useless mess on your hand.

TIP:  I found it was much easier to open the pyramid on a carpeted floor versus a smooth surface.  If you plan to use the pyramid on a smooth surface, I recommend you buy plastic caps for the bottom so that it doesn’t slide around, messing up the layout and possibly scratch your beautiful floors.

Good luck and be sure to let me know how it goes.   I would especially like to know if you have any interesting experiences while inside your new pyramid!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  If after reading this you want me to make one for you, I’d be honored to do it for you.  Please contact me for more details about pricing plus shipping.   Thank you!

  1. Hi Stephen,

    I landed upon your website because I wanted to learn how to make a copper pyramid. I am very grateful for your instructions. I am up to the part where I have to measure and tie the knots at 64 inches. I am doing this by myself and am trying to figure out a way to do this the easiest way possible. I’m a little stuck. Obviously I have to start on one side. How do I keep the poles 64 inches apart and keep the wire taught at the same time to tie the knot? Did you have someone help you? Would you mind elaborating on this last part a little better? By the way, I used a 1 1/2 key ring right off the bat and it was smooth! Are you still meditating under your pyramid? What more can you say about your experiences? I can’t wait to start!

    I hope to hear from you soon,

    Mike

  2. that was very easy to follow and informative. one q though. dont we need copper pipes for the bottom square of the pyramid ? will it be effective without the bottom edges ?

  3. Hello Stephen I have found this page fascinating as I too am going to construct a pyramid like yourself to the Giza pyramid dimensions. I am 6ft 6″ tall so, for a six or seven foot width pyramid, how long would the sides or, height have to be please? I would to experiment, not only with meditation but using plants for growth experiments.

    Much success and good health
    Andrei

  4. I would say to use 10 foot copper pipes providing, of course, space-permitting. If you don’t have the room for that, then I’d suggest perhaps 7 or 8 foot copper pipes to fit someone of your height. Good luck!

  5. Victor:

    You could make a pyramid with copper pipes at the bottom but then you wouldn’t be able to close it up and put it away if needed. The copper wires at the bottom are just as good, in my opinion.

  6. Hi Stephen. Thanks for this posting. Based in the UK, I have been looking into making a pyramid and stumbled accross you page in my research
    I was wondering if you could clarify where the holes are drilled on the poles at the base for the purpose of threading the copper wire through. Are they at 90 degree angles as we need to form a square? (as apposed to 180 at the top)
    Also. When you store the pyramid away and fold up poles bunching them together, how do you store the copper wires without them kinking?
    I look forward to your resonse
    Best wishes
    Ka Re

  7. Ka:

    Thanks for writing in regards to the making of a copper pyramid. It was made so long ago that I actually don’t recall whether the holes are at 90 degree angles but most likely. I would recommend you allow your intuition to guide you, as you follow my post about how to make a pyramid.

    Storing the pyramid takes a little practice – when you close it up and put it away you want to do it slowly so the wires don’t get entangled. After a while you’ll develop a feel for opening and closing the pyramid without messing up the bottom wires but that’s not to say it won’t happen. It happened to me in the beginning but once I became “one” with it, I was able to open and close the pyramid without much trouble.

    Hope this helps!
