Dr Wilhelm Reich, an Austrian psychiatrist, researched orgone energy in the earlier half of the 20th century, and today’s orgonite devices are built on his findings. While conducting his research, Dr. Reich found that organic materials attract and hold orgone energy, while non-organic metals simultaneously attract and repel the energy.
Orgonite is based on these two principles. It is a 50-50 mix of resin (organic, due to the fact that it is based on petrochemicals), and metal shavings (inorganic). A quartz crystal is also added to the orgonite mix. This is because of its piezoelectric properties, which means that it gives off a charge when it is put under pressure (resin shrinks when it is cured, so constant pressure is put on the quartz crystal).
Due to the fact that the elements contained in orgonite are constantly attracting and repelling energy, a “scrubbing” action takes place, and along with the charge that the crystal gives off, this cleans stagnant and negative energy, and brings it back to a healthy, vibrant state.
What are the benefits of orgonite?
The effects of orgonite differ from person to person. Some feel the energy straight away (usually as a tingling or warm sensation) while for others the effects are cumulative. The most commonly reported effects of orgonite are:
• Better sleep and vivid dreams
• More energy
• Balanced moods
• Decreased sensitivity to EMFs
• Spiritual and psychological growth
• Increased resistance to illness (orgonite should never be used as a substitute for professional medical care)
What are some uses for orgonite?
Most people use orgonite to balance and strengthen their energetic field, and to help provide protection against EMFs. You can also use it to:
• Deepen meditation
• Boost plant growth
• Remove negative energy in a specific place
• Strengthen intentions and visualisations
