The Science Behind Orgonite Technology: An Interview With Andrew Paradnik

A few months ago we had the privilege to meet Andrew Paradnik in the Mind, Body, Spirit Festival in London and we couldn’t resist asking him to give us an exclusive interview about Orgonites. Andrew is combining his knowledge of crystals grids with sacred geometry patterns and Orgonites to make functional art that not only cleanses the energy in your environment but also amplifies your intentions. While in the festival I was standing in a place, talking to somebody and I started feeling this energetic “buzz” like I was getting extremely high on energy. I thought somebody was doing and extreme session of Reiki on me, so I stayed with it. But the high was getting more and more intense and I started shaking! I had to turn around and see what was going on. I was surprised to find out that behind me was Andrew’s stall of amazing Orgonites and I could pick up the energy of those marvelous devices from a great distance (The positive thing about being and Empath hey?). The Orgonites called me…

A lot of rumors are out there about Orgonites in general and Andrew is a true master of the craft so he is the most appropriate person to answer all of the questions one might have.  The below information are directly from his website Orgonites Art.  So…

What is Orgone and Orgonite?

Orgone is another term for Chi, Qi, Prana, Life force. Every living being has a life force of it’s own which can be made visible through aura photography (Kirlian). This energy flows through our chakras, acupuncture points and meridians. Chi is subject to environmental influences such as pollution, emotions, electro-smog from electronic devices like microwave, mobile phones and WiFi which is why Orgonites are so helpful in today’s environment.

Orgonites are devices made from resin, metals and crystals. They absorb negative energy from our aura, personal energy field and surroundings attracting, accumulating and magnifying the Chi, the etheric positive life force energy. The crystals inside the orgonites capture negative energies and transmute these into positive energies creating balance and harmony in the environment.1.00

In the 1930’s and 40’s, a visionary scientist called Dr. Willhem Reich discovered that by layering organic and non-organic material one can accumulate Chi energy which he called Orgone. Reich found that there are two forms of energy, one he named ‘POR’ positive orgone and the other ‘DOR’ deadly orgone. DOR is a disturbed energy that’s generated by electrical machinery, radio towers, nuclear power plants etc. Reich’s orgone accumulators would attract both types of orgone energy indescriminately but he had no control over the output. He located his research lab in a rural area away from deadly orgone so he would not harm his patients, staff and himself with the accumulators. He had much success in treating people with illnesses and so called ‘incurable’ diseases with POR. Sadly Reich was discreddited by the FDA. Most of his work was destroyed and he was imprisoned.

It was later discovered by Don and Carol Croft that they could reproduce a similar orgone accumulator on a much smaller scale using catalyzed organic fibreglass resin with inorganic metal shavings poured into cake moulds. Additionally, they discovered that by adding small quartz crystals to the mixure it would transmute all orgone to a highly beneficial form (POR). Therfore we can say that orgonite with crystals is a continously operating power house that transmutes negatively charged Chi into positively charged Chi creating a pure and clean environment.
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. It is believed this is also what causes the orgonite to function so effectively as a positive energy generator.

This is how the first Orgonite was created. Nowadays, there are multiple ways of creating Orgone accumulating devices.

Creating an Orgonite

Before I start building an orgonite I decide on which sacred geometry pattern to use. Then I decide a purpose of it, whether this disc will be used as a healing disc, an intention amplifier, grounding disc, ceremonial disc, entity removal disc etc.

According to that, I check which crystals will be the most appropriate. For bigger discs I choose a minimum of 3 separate crystal grids and then through dowsing I check if these crystals will amplify each other and work in harmony.

As a meditator and shamanic practitioner for almost two decades, I go into a meditative state and consult with my guides about how to create and structure the piece I am working on. Only then can I start to work on the orgonite. Starting with the sacred geometry, then the crystals and then all the remaining parts of the disc and finishing off with the 50:50% mix of metals and resin. The discs are built upside down so we never know the final result until the last day of creation. It is the most exciting thing to finally pop it out of the mould and seeing the final result!

IMG_7726

 Some of the orgonites have special inclusions like sacred objects, essential oils, shamanic medicines, flower, dolphin and whales essences.

 When making customised pieces, I tune into the energy of the receiver and build the orgonite according to the information that I receive from this person. We can build the orgonites with your numerology, your zodiac sign, your preferred choice of colours and crystals. I am happy to discuss and advise your particular requirements. It is always a great pleasure to work in collaboration with customers as these pieces usually turn out to be the most beautiful.

You may have noticed that I rarely make pyramid shapes. This is due to the fact that pyramid shaped orgonites channel the energy upwards. Pyramids or cones function like funnels for the energy where as our orgonites focus on creating a harmonized field of energy in your entire surroundings, not concentrated only in one spot e.g. upwards. I prefer to create pieces that distribute the energy spherical or sideways like my orgone generator discs. We do however, create special spiritual tools that use different type of shapes like pendulums and wands.

Sacred Geometry

3.00
The Flower Of Life

Everything in the universe is geometric whether it’s people, trees, planets, solar systems, stars, atoms etc. And everything can be measured on a geometric scale. It is important to note that creation and evolution follow a pattern of geometry. At the heart of sacred geometry, we have The Flower of Life which over the millenia has been found with almost all cultures around the world. The term sacred geometry explains the geometrical principles which create everything in existence. It explains the laws of the mind, the spirit, matter, sound and the heart. Everything in nature is made up of patterns and structures from the microcosm to the macrocosm and each of these patterns reveals to us the nature of the object and it’s energetic vibration. Sacred geometry deals with ratios like phi (golden ratio), Pi, Fibonacci sequence, the Platonic solids and many more. It can be found in temples, sacred structures, churches and mosques, alters, religious art and religious symbols.

Nautilus Shell

Sacred geometry can be summarized as an understanding of pattern recognition. According to this view, these patterns of existence have been perceived over the ages as sacred and by observing these patterns and contemplating upon them, one can get greater insight into the mysteries and laws of the universe. All forms and shapes in nature grow according to the patterns of sacred geometry. In some it’s easier to see like the nautilus shell or in the hexagonal cells of beehives. It is often found in art and architecture especially when looking at traditional cultures such as the Egyptians, Greek and Roman architecture. Medieval cathedrals and in Hindu and Buddhist spiritual teachings in the form of mandalas and yantras.

10388100_416558521832933_1627323523602527159_n

The most common shapes in sacred geometry are the Flower of Life, the Yin and Yang, Metatron’s Cube, Star Tetrahedron (Merkabah), Platonic Solids, Seed of Life, Tree of Life (Kabbalah) and the Fruit of Life. You can find all of these incorporated in to our orgonites.

We have found that Sacred Geometry not only amplifies the power output of the orgonite, it also balances the chakras, harmonises your field and brings a greater sense of wellbeing and stability.

On a grander scheme of things, personally we use the sacred geometry that is built onto the orgonites to transform the energy (POR) into a hologram in the informational field to manifest our programmed intentions. Simply put, it accelerates and amplifies our intentions.

For a greater understanding of sacred geometry we highly recommend the works of Juliet and Jiva Carter ‘The Template’ and Drunvalo Melchizedek’s book ‘The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life’.

Crystals

At Orgonites Art it is really important to us to treat crystals with all the respect that they deserve. Quite often, crystals are excavated via the method of rock blasting which is traumatic to the crystals as they are living, growing beings with spirit.

When we acquire new crystals we ensure that they are rehabilitated! Our crystals go through several stages before they are placed into the orgonites:

Sunbathing, Reiki healing, saging, laser clearing, sound bath and shamanic clearing. Finally, when they are placed into the orgonites, we test whether those particular crystals will work in harmony together by dowsing or testing with kinesiology.

You can read more about crystals and their uses on Andrew’s website, provided below.

Basically having an Orgonite table, charges, cleanses, purifies anything you put on it right?

So here are Andrew’s interviews where he explains the art of creating energy devices and how did he come to work with energy in the first place. He is very thorough and leaves no question unanswered as you will find out. Enjoy! 🙂

Treating Depression With Nature: Practical Guide to Aromatherapy

Today I would like to talk about the “big black dog” also known as depression and how to treat it naturally, using Bach Flower Remedies and Aromatherapy in general. The most common, simple form of it. Yes it’s a paradox, because there are so many forms and types depending on gender, seasons, hormones and so on that would make it impossible to sum it up in a short article.

I came to London on the 10th of December of 2013 and I have been depressed 3 times already. Quite tiring I must say, but I managed to rise above it. This journey I am currently undertaking, leaving a whole lifetime behind, back in Greece, is a big learning experience of re-discovering and re-inventing my self, of accepting me for who I am, transcending the pain and trauma of the past, in this life and all the previous ones. Sometimes I needed help so I began exploring the magical world of nature and flowers in particular. But enough about me… for now.

 What is Depression?

The normal ups and downs of life mean that everyone feels sad or has “the blues” from time to time. But if you feel empty and desperate on a regular basis and it doesn’t go away, you might be suffering from depression. Depression makes it tough to function and enjoy life like you once did. Just getting through the day can be overwhelming. Sometimes you might want to crawl into a safe place somewhere and hide from the world. Yet, no matter how hopeless you feel, you can get better.This is a fact! Understanding the signs, symptoms, causes, and treatment of depression is the first step to overcoming the problem. Sadness or downswings in mood are normal reactions to life’s struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word “depression” to explain these kinds of feelings,but this is a misconception since depression is much more than just sadness. Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole” or having a feeling of impending doom. However, some depressed people don’t feel sad at all—they may feel lifeless, empty, and apathetic, but not sad. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief.

Who gets depression?

About 5 in 100 adults have depression every year. Sometimes it is mild or lasts just a few weeks. However, an episode of depression serious enough to require treatment occurs in about 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men at some point in their lives. Some people have two or more episodes of depression at various times in their life. The symptoms can vary and I don’t want to lower the vibration here, my goal is simply to propose a natural way of treating it without medication, at home.

Warning: I am not a doctor and I only speak from personal experience. If you think you have a depression of any kind, you should seek professional assistance. What worked for me might not work for you, different things work for different people, the beauty of complexity and uniqueness, right? The most simple ways of treating depression naturally are:

  1. Contemplate why are you feeling like that. Sit down with yourself, let the judgement out of the room and talk and listen to you.
  2. Move! Exercise releases happy-making endorphins, which act like natural anti-depressants.
  3. Try to keep a normal eating pattern. Keeping your blood sugar stable reduces mood swings. Also eat serotonin-enhancing foods and try to balance your hormones. (Some forms of depression are just chemical imbalances in your body)
  4. Expose yourself to sunlight, which can boost mood and increase Vitamin D levels. If you live somewhere that gets little sun, invest in a therapeutic light box or a Himalayan salt lamp. (My salt lamp helped me when I had S.A.D.-Seasonal Affective Disorder before last Christmas.)
  5. Meditate or try guided imagery and visualizations. Meditation’s effects on mood are well documented. Settling your mind can lift your mood, in addition to a whole host of other health benefits.
  6. Listen to nature sounds and soothing music. Calming your mind really helps!

And last but not least:

7. Essential oils, Bach flower remedies, aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the use of organic compounds called essential oils to improve a person’s mood, mental state, or health. The oils are extracted from various plant parts, such as roots, seeds, leaves, and blossoms, and can be blended together. Treatment involves diffusing oil into the air, dissolving it in a bath, or applying it during a massage, among other techniques.

How Aromatherapy Works

aromatherapy_chart

Researchers aren’t sure how aromatherapy works, but most believe that chemicals in essential oils trigger smell receptors in the nose that are connected to areas of the brain related to mood. For people with depression, certain oils are believed to bring about a sense of calm or to elevate mood. Methods of aromatherapy include:

Diffusion
Diffuseur d'huiles essentielles
Ceramic diffuser that uses a tea light to warm the essential oils and help them vaporize. Put 3-5 drops of oil and fill the rest with water.

Diffusion is the process of spreading a scent gently and continuously throughout an area. This is usually done by a machine called a diffuser, which will allow you to transform a room or your entire house into a therapy solution.

Room spray

Sprays are good way to get scents into an area quickly and conveniently. You can buy them premixed, or add some of your favorite oils to water in a spray bottle to make your own.

Massage

aromatherapy-massage

Aromatherapy oils are a popular addition to a full-body massage. Combining aromatherapy with massage is a great way to relax and ease away both physical and mental stress.

Baths

Various oils and salts that contain oils are available to turn your bath or shower into a relaxing, therapeutic experience.

Skin and hair products

Scented beauty products are an easy way to keep a scent with you throughout the day.

The following essential oils are sometimes used to help ease the effects of depression:

  •  jasmine
  •  sandalwood
  •  ylang-ylang
  •  clary sage
  •  basil
  •  bergamot
  •  rose
  •  geranium
  •  neroli
  •  petitgrain

or try these popular essential oils:aromatherapy-essential-oils-chart

Personally I put a drop of essential oil on my index finger and apply it to my nostrils or a few drops in my palms, rub it together and then cover my nose with my hands and take 3 deep breaths from the nose. (A technique I learned in Aura Soma)

There is a wonderful Bach remedy called Mustard that works wonders on depression that is not clinical in nature. A few days of the Mustard remedy will lift you out of depression, so softly and naturally, that you will at first perhaps not realize that is is gone.

The most powerful essences for depression in aromatherapy are all the citrus remedies, orange, lemon, and although not many people use it I would suggest Rose. The Rose remedy is one of the most powerful remedies in the aromatherapeutic arsenal. Because it vibrates at the highest frequency and just very naturally lifts you up to where you should be.

The advantages of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is an easy way to help beat stress with calming and relaxing scents. The oils are usually inexpensive, and usage is simple.

The disadvantages of Aromatherapy

Although aromatherapy is generally safe, the oils could cause an averse or allergic reaction in some people. People who are particularly sensitive to strong scents should consider other options.

Like most alternative therapies, aromatherapy should not be used as the only therapy for moderate to severe depression. There is little to no clinical research to support the efficacy of aromatherapy as a treatment for depression. However, people often use it as a complement to more traditional depression treatments.
