Orgonite is a modern term used to describe pieces of resin that encase layers of metal and other inorganic materials for the purpose of dispelling negative energy. The term comes from the word “orgone,” coined by Wilhelm Reich in the 1940s. Orgone was Reich’s term for what others have called chi, prana, or life force. Reich’s highly controversial work as a psychoanalyst and his troubled personal life, overshadowed his important work with orgone and it was not until the 1960s and 70s that his research and literature were revisited. Reich discovered that by layering organic and inorganic materials, life force energy (orgone) could be concentrated. He built orgone accumulators (boxes large enough for a person to sit in) that consisted of layers of wood, wool and metal. Sitting in the chamber for several hours a day relieved numerous symptoms and supposedly cured many conditions.
Orgonite is a modern way of concentrating life force. Resin or beeswax can be used as the organic material (containing carbon) and metal or stones are used as inorganic matter. Mixing provides multiple layers that gather negative energy and transform it. The use of orgonite is a way to protect a small environment from electromagnetic frequencies, power lines, microwaves, cell towers, geopathic stress and other forms of disruptive energy. Depending on its size and on the materials used, orgonite can protect an entire room.
Orgonite and Water
Orgonite also structures water. Life force is a coherent, organizing energy. When concentrated by orgonite, the life force field is strong enough to bring coherent structure to water that is placed on or around it. When used in conjunction with the Water Cradle and a Tensor ring, the Orgonite Water Cradle Holder assists in creating full-spectrum, living water with a unique molecular matrix that the authors of Dancing with Water refer to as the Creatrix Matrix. This matrix is very programmable—reminiscent of the primary creative energy in the universe.
The internet is full of “how to” websites for making orgonite. There are numerous variations on the theme. However, the essential elements are the same. The most important factor is to get as many layers as possible embedded in the resin. Based on our experience, the following will help create the best orgonite.
- Smaller pieces of metal (especially metal powders) create the strongest orgonite. They have a greater surface area and consequently more layers. Even carbon powder and especially shungite powder works nicely and adds an additional grounding and protective quality. However, metal shavings, steel wool, metal foils, and metal beads all work.
- Cones and pyramids are powerful shapes but any shape will work. Larger is better, however, a small piece made of metal/carbon powders is more potent than a larger piece made with bigger pieces of metal.
- The inclusion of quartz crystals (especially at the top and outer edges) focuses and amplifies the positive energy emitted. Try winding copper (or gold-plated copper) coils around crystals before inclusion.
- Mica flakes mixed in the resin amplify the energy and attract cosmic frequencies that support water’s structure.
- The placement of grounding materials–especially at the base (obsidian, shungite, hematite, magnetite, paramagnetic powder etc.) energetically strengthen the orgonite and give it additional capacity to dispel “heavy” energy.
- Stones (crushed or otherwise) will add their unique energetic benefits.
- The use of copper coils, triskelions and especially Tensor Ring, enhances/amplifies the energy of orgonite. They can be embedded in the resin or used around orgonite—or both.
How to Make Orgonite
The key to orgonite is the layering of organic and inorganic materials. More layers makes more powerful orgonite. Smaller pieces make more layers.
Step 1 – select a mold
There are numerous things that may be used as molds – everything from silicone ice cube trays to stainless steel pans and muffin tins. Silicone works best because it is easy to de-mold. If you select another material, you may want to spray a mold releasing compound before you add ingredients. Search dollar stores and the internet for silicone molds.
Step 2 – select a molding compound
Resin or beeswax can be used as the organic material (containing carbon) to create a shape and to hold the inorganic materials together . Beeswax is lovely but not as durable and not as easy to work with. Any type of resin or epoxy (polyester to fiberglass) will work. However, many resins and epoxies produce fumes while hardening that should not be inhaled. It is best to select a low odor resin—or to work outdoors. Another consideration is work time. Some resins harden rapidly and do not allow time to work with materials. In our experience, EasyCast clear casting epoxy works nicely. It comes as an epoxy and hardener that mix in equal parts. It is low odor and has a long work time—2 to 6 hours to harden—72 hours to cure depending on temperature and size of the piece.
Step 3 – determine your ingredients
When we began making orgonite, we found metal shavings from metalworks factories; we bought steel wool, we cut up tin foil, we used copper wire, and copper B-Bs, but in the end we discovered that although these materials work, powders make even more potent orgonite because they produce more layers. When we acquired iron oxide powder and powdered copper, we really began to make orgonite with a “kick.” Although this orgonite is black and not as “pretty” as some of the orgonite that is being sold, it is potent and we found ways to dress it up. We found we could embed gold leaf, triskelions, and even tensor rings in our work to make it aesthetically pleasing AND powerful. Our recipe includes: Iron oxide powder (alphachemicals.com), copper powder – 100 mesh (Chemical Store), and mica flakes (health-and-wisdom.com). These are the ingredients used in the highest quantities. We also include quartz sand, kyanite, paramagnetic rock powder (gardenening.com), shungite powder, and gold leaf. These ingredients balance and augment the organite but are not as critical for a strong piece of orgonite.
Step 4 – mix and pour
Once you have gathered all your ingredients, mix the resin, add ingredients and stir. Add enough powders so that the resin is very thick (almost like wet cement). Pour, smooth and let it harden before removing the mold.. Have fun. Orgonite is powerful stuff. Water loves it!
The Orgonite Water Cradle Holder
The Orgonite Water Cradle Holder is intended for use with the Water Cradle (shown right) but it can also be used underneath a pitcher or other water container. It can be placed under a dinner plate to negate many of the harmful effects of pesticides, preservatives, and other food additives. The orgonite Water Cradle Holder measures 7.5 inches in diameter, and is 3/4 inch deep with a masculine triskelion embedded in the center of the depression for the water cradle, and a depression for the placement of a full cubit Tensor ringaround the outer edge (Tensor ring sold separately).
