Synchronicity and Building My Russian Pyramid

As you become more awake to the world around you, you may increasingly notice periods when the same person or thing is presented to you with a high frequency in improbable ways. I had one of those in the autumn of 2016 when it seemed like pyramids were everywhere. It got to the point where I found myself in situations such as driving in my car and the podcast I was listening to incidentally mentioned pyramids right when I happened to stop by a billboard featuring an Egyptian pyramid. I take these synchronicities as a sign to act even if it may not seem highly practical. This leads to some “this means something, this is important” moments, but later on, I usually discover that it was fortunate I did so.

After a week of being bombarded by pyramids, I decided to research them and build my own. My instinct to act was reinforced when a few days into the process, David Wilcok began a four-part series on pyramids for his “Wisdom Teachings” show on Gaia (one episode was even titled “Build your Own Pyramid”). David shared the results of his research suggesting that pyramids create photon vortexes enabling them to be used to benefit personal and environmental health along with amplifying karmic challenges for a more intense spiritual development process.

My design was primarily based on Alexander Golod’s Russian pyramids, but I also followed information from the Law of One and David Wilcock. The recent, at the time of this writing, destruction of Golod’s largest and most famous pyramid by a storm prompted my desire to share how I built a sturdy and smaller version which has so far perfectly withstood multiple earthquakes and typhoons.

I chose to build a pyramid with a height (h) to length of base edge (a) ratio equal to h/a=2.02 based on information I found about Golod’s Russian pyramids.

One of the challenges I faced was making a structure which was entirely free of metal. My research informed me that metal alters the flow of energy, deviating it from its natural beneficial course which is created purely by the form of the pyramid. This meant that I had to seek alternative materials.

One of the recommendations by Ra of the Law of One was to use  “man-made plastic rods.” Alexander Golod’s pyramids used PVC pipes (man-made plastic tubes), so I decided to do the same since I had experience working with that material.

With only the vaguest of ideas, and a strong desire to somehow build a pyramid, I was off to my local home-improvement center. I decided to wander around the store with notebook in hand to let synchronicity and intuition guide me. After several home-improvement center “vision quests,” I had a definite plan and part list.

I began building by leveling a piece of land and marking true north in order to align my pyramid to it. I found true north by hanging a plumb bob from the top of my ladder and marking its shadow at solar noon. I was lucky to find cement blocks with embedded PVC pipes. The addition of reducing couplings made them perfect for corner pier blocks.

I bought 4-inch diameter PVC pipe which was 4 m (13′ 1-1/5″) long to be used for each of the the long edges of the pyramid (‘e’ in the diagram below). I then calculated the base edge’s length (a) to be 1.867 m (6′ 1-1/5″).

I lay each pair of pipes on the ground with one end touching and the other end spread apart by the base edge length (a). To hold them at this angle, I drilled a hole near the touching end of each pipe and passed a loop of rope through the holes and an intervening narrower pipe.

Next, I raised the pipes of the pyramid up two at a time and glued them into their pier blocks. I did not have the safest set-up for getting the pipes into place and I urge anyone attempting this project to take better safety precautions than I did.

After getting all four pipes up, I tied them together at the top with rope and tamped dirt around the pier blocks. I then surrounded the four main pipes with bands of smaller diameter 3/4″ PVC Pipe, securing everything with zip ties. This created a lattice for the attachment of fiberglass-reinforced roofing sheets. I painted everything white to protect the plastic from deterioration by sunlight.main pipes up in place and surrounded by bands of smaller diameter pipe

The roofing sheets were attached to the PVC pipes with zip ties through drilled holes. The holes were then covered with butyl tape. I caulked the sheet overlaps as I went.

The four corners were “flashed” with butyl tape and caulk. Everything was painted to protect it from the sun and an attempt at an Egyptian motif in orange paint was made. I added a door which is hinged at the top with more zip ties and butyl tape. It has generous overlap so rain does not come in.

It has been about 8 months since completion of the pyramid at the time of this writing, and I have been very satisfied with it so far. It has remained dry except for occasional condensation and has perfectly weathered severe typhoons and moderate earthquakes. The energy in the pyramid feels comfortable and supportive for daily meditation. Additionally, sleep in the pyramid is exceptionally refreshing and rejuvenating. I hope that this has given some ideas to others interested in building their own pyramid.
