What are orgone and orgonite pendants?

Orgonite is said to have many properties

Orgonite sounds a bit like Kryptonite, the substance that could weaken Superman, but orgonite is actually something which is said to have a multitude of positive effects. It is based around the discoveries of Wilhelm Reich, who called the life force, "etheric energy" or "chi" by the new name of orgone and he claimed that this energy could be used to control the weather by means of a device known as a cloudbuster.

I had some friends in Donegal many years ago in the mid-eighties, who called themselves Solar Age Pathfinders and were led by a man called Michael Tobin, and he was using orgone and claimed that he could change the weather by cloudbusting. It was through my friends in Ireland that I first heard a lot about this subject.

Reich also maintained that the opposite of orgone and positive life energy was DOR, which stood for Deadly Orgone Energy.

Cloudbusting by Kate Bush



Kate Bush and Cloudbusting

Singer and songwriter Kate Bush had a hit single with the title Cloudbusting, which told the tale of Reich and his "cloudbuster" invention and how he was persecuted by the government of his day. That Reich got into a lot of trouble for his discoveries tends to make me think he was definitely on to something and I don't see why orgonite shouldn't work.

In recent years, due to the phenomena that are known as "chemtrails" and also because of concerns about electro-chemical smog, air pollution and the dangers of cellphone towers, orgonite has become a popular remedy and tool to combat negative energies and act as a protection as well as for neutralising any harm these things are believed to cause.

I was a chemtrail-believer when I first found out about orgonite, although I no longer believe these trails are harmful and accept that they are persistent contrails. However, when I was worried about them, I heard Freeman talking about how he wears an orgonite pendant to protect himself from these trails. I bought such a pendant from Orgonise Africa, and wore it daily, and although I cannot report any benefits from it personally it looks attractive and you never know.

Recently, I bought some CDs of Tibetan mantras and the Blue Sun, the company I bought them from, sent me a free chunk of orgonite. I have it by my PC to help neutralise the potentially harmful radiation from the machine.

Basically orgonite is a mixture of inorganic metal shavings held in organic fibreglass or epoxy resin. Quartz and other semi-precious stones can also be added and are said to boost the power of the orgonite.

Orgonite is being sold as cones, balls and pendants but there are also free instructions given on many websites as to how to make your own.

Don Croft in the year 2000 did some research and experimentation and has added to Reich's original cloudbuster design to create the "chembuster" that also incorporates orgonite.

It is said that orgonite can help plants grow and improves the health of people and animals that are in its vicinity. It is recommended that orgonite is put by or on computers, on fuse boxes, on or by Wi-fi routers or TVs, and outside the substance is said to help combat the potential electromagnetic dangers of pylons, mobile phone masts, microwaves and HAARP.

Does orgonite work? I really can't say. I would like to think it does. Many people claim it works and others say it is an example of pseudoscience and a con. This article is for information purposes and I will let you decide for yourselves.

Hmm....I think if you really want to prosper you need to connect with the universe, that is......stick to the truth, there is too much flakey nonsense here, I think your pendulum has swung too far away from conventional thinking.....this is not the way. Maybe that sounds harsh, but perhaps I am caring about you. Follow the truth, it is the only way, beware of people who deal in falsehoods.

Who are you to say what is the truth or what I am to post, Alex? Who are you to say what is "nonsense"? It is all a matter of opinion, is it not?

"I think if you really want to prosper you need to connect with the universe" - yes, that is exactly what I am doing! Orgonite and Reich's discoveries are part of the universe, are they not?

As I have pointed out I don't know whether orgonite works or not but I do believe in the power, of positive thinking and mind over matter so if people believe it does then maybe that accounts for its beneficial effects.

You appear to be a person who does not like to allow others to make up their own minds, whilst at the same time pushing your version of the truth, which I personally had a look at as you know.

I intend to continue adding hubs on all sorts of subject matter that is of interest to me and may well be of interest to others. I was inspired to write this one because the piece of orgonite in the photo arrived yesterday.

Hi Steve Great post here. Crystals are exceptionally well known for their healing properties. I feel that if Alex really wants to "Connect with the universe" Then he should educate himself about subjects before posting comments. A mind is like an umbrella works best when open!

Thanks again, GW!

Thank you too, Debbie!

Alex has a book he is plugging in which he reveals the truth according to him. He makes a lot of valid points in his work but as you can see here he insists that his truth is the only one that is right. And it is not a good idea, according to Alex, to think too far away from "conventional thinking." On this I disagree with him seeing as a lot of conventional thinking is the end product of manipulation and lies!

Hi advice needed please.

We have been offered the opportunity to rent an absolutely beautiful large home set in its own land with lawns and trees. All the signs are there that we should take it and the 'universe' has definitely been at play in creating this opportunity. I even stumbled upon a talk a week before the opportunity presented itself on among other topics organite (which I knew little about at the time) and its neutralising affects around cell phone masts etc. The gorgeous house in question sits less that 200 metres from a large cell phone mast and 400 metres from an absolutely huge electric pylon. On the brow of the opposite hill approx. 3 miles away is a giant radio and television mast serving the whole nearby city and surrounding area. The house is crying out to us but we are terrified of the potential health hazards. We have been lightworkers for a number of years, guided to homes often to clear negative energy but are thinking that this is a huge job and not our usual remit.

There is a large housing estate close by which I am sure would greatly benefit from any work can did but what is the health implications for us. I already get inner ear pain with some mobile phones and am incredibly sensitive to their emisions.

Advice desperately needed.

Bard of Ely 7 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

I can only speak for myself and I wouldn't take it but that's me! If you think you can protect yourself against the potential harm and dispel its energies that is brilliant but the fact that you have doubts and have to ask suggests you don't have that self confidence. I actually believe that belief and "magic" are tied together totally and doubt is what stops us accomplishing miracles.

There's a mast fairly near where I live and it's on a cliff. The birds that nest there don't know about potential dangers from such things and are continuing to do what they are designed to do and they nest there. So far all appears fine. They do not have belief systems like we have or worries about such things.

I have asked myself this question before - does human belief limit us in our potential and ability to withstand potential threats? I know that in Chernobyl animals and plants that are not afraid of radiation have actually been doing better now than when humans were there - we are a greater danger than radiation contamination it appears to beings who do not have our fears.


But this latest report suggests otherwise:


You will have to decide but I have given you my thoughts on the subject.

Reading about orgonite kind of reminds me of the gismo that ET cobbled together to contact his fellow aliens in the film ET. Having said that, there are plenty of things in the universe that require no explanation. They are just because they are, and maybe orgonite is one of them. I learn such fascinating things when I read your hubs!

Hi Bard! :) Great minds definitely do think along the same lines. Orgonite is absolutely a very interesting topic and I have been researching it, too. I am interested in understanding the scientific basis for how orgonite can reduce EMF (or low frequency waves) - how it can disperse chemtrails, radiation, and other negative energies. There is a lot of data which supports these theories; understanding it all seems to be the hardest part. But, I am right now learning how to make orgonite pendants and/or other shapes and would rather err on the side of safety. (Don't worry about that Alex guy - great thinkers have never been worried about the opinions of those whose thought processes are limited by whatever...) Love to you - and thanks for writing this article - even if orgonite is a crock, people do need to be made more aware of their surroundings and of the effects of EMF and ELF waves. Far as I'm concerned this article gets a TEN!

I did not know what Orgone or Orgonite was but it came to me in a meditation a couple of weeks ago...it was brought to my attention by my spirit guides...

I started doing the research and figured it out...I love how Alex speaks of the truth as though he honestly knows what that is...astounding...we are all trying to figure that out w/ the veil of amnesia covering us...Alex must have it all figured out...lol...

Anyway..thank you for this post..very informative and right on as far as I know of in which I have learned both from research both in the physical and spiritual realms...

I am going to be signing up as a member and look forward to your posts...thank you for sharing your wisdom and insight my new friend.

Are you aware of the difference between Orgonium & Orgonite

Orgonite is a formulation comprising of the right consistency of metal shavings, usually brass or copper, polyester resin and a range of various crystals such as quarts points or sometimes quarts sand. This combination creates an energy that pulses at varying Positive Ion frequencies. If you place a piece of Orgonite over your heart you can feel it pulsing every 4 to 6 seconds. Each pulse feels like a blow to your heart and the between pulses affects your Solar Plexus, creating a nauseous feeling in the abdomin. Alternative use a Heart Rate Monitor to Pulse Testing to also verify this.

Basically the Orgonite is putting your nervous system under extreme load and draining you of energy. Unfortunately a lot of people do not have the developed energy sensitivity to realise that this is going on. They feel an energy that they might think as being slightly pleasant, however it is doing harm to their bodies that they do not realise. This is very dangerous to our well-being and may do damage to our nervous systems, along with organs such as the heart and the lungs.

Orgonite displays energy very similar to what can be felt from a source of electromagnetic radiation, such as a fluorescent lights, at around 50 milligaus. The fluorescent light is a Group 2 Carcinogen, which is a source of Electromagnetic Radiation greater than 4 milligaus, statistically known to cause childhood Leukemia and / or Cancer in adults, as determined by the International Cancer Research Institute.

A practical demonstration of this is to place a compact fluorescent light globe in a lamp on the ground lit up. This lowers the already noxious earth magnetic grid lines energies, which can be felt for a radius of around 20 feet, which put immense stress on the Nervous System of anyone within the noxious field take effect. Take the lamp away then place the Orgonite in the same position, and it produces exactly the same effect on the Nervous System as a noxious compact fluorescent light globe in the lamp.

What you really want to use is Orgonium Orgone Products. Orgonium is a Resonance device, which has been developed to vibrate at a high frequency and is in harmony with our Nervous System and Auric Field, in complete harmony with nature. In fact, Orgonium mimics the natural earth resonance as felt with Ley or Synchronic Lines, often known for their balancing and relaxing energies, which relaxes the Nervous System and creates a feeling of well-being in a person.

When a piece of Orgonium is placed over the Heart the person feels slightly energised around the head and shoulders, and the Nervous System relaxes, especially if it is under stress from a nearby source of Positive Ions.

Orgonium creates a feeling of bliss, peace and well-being, balancing the brain hemispheres and brain chemistry.

When Orgonium is placed within an EMR field, especially at the source of the Electromagnetic Radiation, the noxious Positive Ion resonance from this Electromagnetic Radiation is instantly harmonised for its entire field of effect. The stress on the Nervous System of a person placed within that EMR field is instantly relaxed once the Orgonium is in place. The same effect can be felt on an Earth Magnetic Grid line, water vein, fault line, cell phone, wireless internet (WiFi) or microwave.

The Earth Magnetic Grid lines are the negative lines that produce Positive Ions, and Ley or Synchronic Lines are the positive lines that produce a Negative Ion resonance. Both those resonances can easily felt in the body by an experienced Geomancer, and both can be mimicked with resonance technology.

Orgonite resonates at the Earth Magnetic Grid resonance (producing Positive Ions) where Orgonium resonates at Ley Line resonance (producing Negative Ions), is used to balance out noxious Earth Magnetic Grid lines resonance similar to the noxious Electromagnetic Radiation and Radio Frequencies. Earth Magnetic Gridlines are at a constant direction and spacing, whereas the Ley or Synchronic Lines are random at no set spacing.

The most common type of Earth Magnetic Grid line is the Benker Grid. This grid runs in 7metre centres, is 1100mm wide and is a standing wave of Positive Ion energy that emanates up to the Ionosphere. This runs in the north-south / east-west direction. The Benker grid is the main cause of Geopathic Stress, which in turn is a known cause of Cancer and other illness either physical or mental. Orgonium differs to Organite in its formulation, Resin type and other factors.

I had never heard of Orgonium I must admit! I have found that the Orgonite does nothing that I have noticed and my current conclusion is that both Orgonite and Orgonium probably work as tools to get you to cause effects by mind over matter!

If this is not the case why do so many report success with the Orgonite that you claim is harmful?

Helen Garvey 6 years ago

I love organite. It is such a fantastic protector of the auric field. I feel my chakras tingling just talking about it, but I do have a large piece sitting in my pocket. However, some people will not connect with the energy as it will bring on high vibration and big changes. The amount of help I am receiving from Angels and the Universe is amazing. I would not have received information about the Dark Forces, organite, Moldavite, phenekite, meditation, ascension, and The Dark Night of the Soul otherwise.

Send out the love. An opinion is allowed, but do not let it transmute into anger. Peace xx

Carolyn 6 years ago

Thank you so much Blard for your incite. I have been a strong believer in Orgonite for almost a year now and have made chembusters at home. To read the information above from lotusconnections is quite confusing, yet scary at the same time. Because in the back of my mind I am thinking "what if she's right?" But like you said, its also about mind over matter. The mind is a powerful thing that must be open to any and every information that it absorbs.

I also would like to know your theory about the chemtrails and how they are just contrails. When in fact, contrails are due to the high altitude of the jet and the vapors that come from how cold it is up there. However, the chemtrails that are usually seen are much lower and expand over time until the sky looks like a thin overcast. I am not here to try and change your mind but that is what I have learned and since I am open to everyones opinions (even the people who think I am a nut for believing what I believe in).

Since reading your hub I am going to register and follow your future postings! Love, Light, and Peace to you throughout the New Year.

Carolyn, thanks for posting! As for chemtrails I have never seen one and currently don't believe they exist but then I haven't seen any low level trails. I have seen loads that expand to fill the sky with white cloudiness and haze though but this is artificial cirrus cloud and whilst unsightly not a danger.

Skeptic 14 6 years ago

Bard -

If you look in the sky every day for about a week, you will HAVE to see chemtrails. Look for streams of white smoke laid out across the sky...then look again in about 30-45 minutes, and you will see those streams have dissipated into what looks like hazy cloudiness. You don't need any kind of degree to see them.

Thank you for the informative article!

My brother gave me an orgonite because he said I was "sensitive". I forgot what he meant by that... I've had the orgonite for some time now. He gave it to me around the time when I could "sense" entities and energies too much that it became unbearable.

After giving me the orgonite, I've been getting more sleep because I feel more "secure" in a way I couldn't describe. I could still feel presences, but I could control it more.

Unfortunately, my orgonite fell from my desk and has a little opening on the bottom. Here's are some pictures:








(I couldn't quite take a good shot since my webcam kept on brightening the screen but I bet you can see the tiny spot that's exposed)

Is it still okay to use my orgonite? :( I couldn't bear living without it though... but now it's exposed.. won't it have some trouble converting negative energy to positive? My brother said something about my orgonite not needing to be "cleansed" often because it cleans itself. But what happens now that it's exposed?

Bard of Ely, how about a trip down memory lane?

The remains of Michael Tobin's Donegal cloudbusting experiment:






If you have any stories about Tobin and Solar-Age Pathfinders I would love to hear them. As binky said earlier, it seems he was indeed "barking mad" and I'm fascinated by the fact that a character like him lives in my hometown. I have a few stories of my own, told to me by a family member, who worked on Tobin's house. They are interesting to say the least! Hope to hear back from you soon!

Bard of Ely profile image

Bard of Ely 3 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

Amazing seeing all these photos now so thank you! That is where I would have ended up if I had accepted his invitation to move over there and join them! No, stories, sorry, because we never actually met but he used to send over piles of his bulletins for me to give out. I did but no one was interested!

TrevorStevens 3 years ago

Ah, that's a shame you don't have any stories, but it was probably for the best that you didn't join him.

What I know about Solar-Age Pathfinder's Donegal expedition:

They arrived here in the 80s, and were backed financially by a wealthy American woman known as Mrs. Gregson.

She bought the house you see in the first photo, along with a few acres and other buildings. According to a family member,

Tobin basically had her brainwashed and managed to take a lot of money from her. Apparently he would withdraw bags of cash from her bank account every week. He wasn't the only person taking advantage of her. A few others who worked and lived in Claggan House (as it's known locally) in some way or another robbed her of her money and belongings. When she realised what was going on, she left the property and moved to Galway. Paraphrasing binky's earlier post, it would seem she got what she deserved for believing in Tobin's nonsense, although by all accounts she was a lovely woman. Even though she was fleeced by these people, she was ridiculously wealthy, so no doubt she still lives well.

Tobin remained there up until 2000.

* He had some sort of hut built and placed at the entrance to Claggan House. He convinced Mrs. Gregson that for every hour she sat in the hut, she would add a year to her life. Ridiculous, I know, but might this have something to do with Orgonite?

* Mrs. Gregson had the main house (first photo) renovated, redecorated and fitted when they arrived here. After she left, Tobin gutted the entire building, removing the plumbing, all the appliances, the stove and took everything out to his cloudbusting device you see in the third photo. One day Tobin approached my family member in town and said "Do you remember that stove you installed a few years back? Well I took a sledgehammer to it the other day and brought it out to the field. It'll do more good out there than it ever did in the kitchen."

* Tobin was known to search the local dump for metal. One day he was seen hauling a washing machine on his bicycle from the dump back to Claggan house, at least a 3 mile journey. The man was committed anyway.

That is indeed, fascinating! I remember at one point he was sending me info about remineralising the soil worldwide with glacial minerals and ground rock dust. He also claimed he could do cloudbusting with just the naked eye. Yes, I remember the name Claggan House now. I also remember that Tobin's partner was called Caroline and I think she was Dutch.
