Preparing for your Virtual Sound Meditation

Guest

We invite you to enter the Pyramids of Chi’s virtual ceremonies of frequency; A sacred experience to untether your mind during these strange times.  This debut series brings together our sound medicine practitioners for transmissions full of ancient wisdom and healing to support you, wherever you may be, and to support a new dream for our planet.  An array of physiological effects begin to happen whenever detachment from the mind occurs.  Our wish is for this series to provide you a space of ease, to breathe, release & simply, be... aho!

We’ll be dropping a new film per week for the next 5-weeks. Check back for the current schedule!

Only your spirit needs to travel during a session! Since you don't have to drive home after, designing a newly dedicated zone (beds & blanket forts included) for experiencing these journeys at home is a beautiful thing.  

Tend the garden of your inner growth by creating a sacred space for our sound journeys.  When you devote a nook (or blanket fort) in your home to your sound healing sessions and sow it with your higher intentions, you create the right conditions to amplify frequency.  A dedicated space helps the mind “drop in” more quickly and deeply by collecting and focusing your energy on the present. 

Suggestions for Sessions

Find a comfortable place you can sit or lay down.  Cozy suggestions include favorite blankets, pillows, comfy clothes (or no clothes), candles, animal cuddles, good smells, crystals nearby? Bring them too!  Anything to further induce your state of ease.  (Even if you don’t need it at the start, you will be glad you have cozy things nearby in case your body calls for them throughout the journey).

Silence your phones, gadgets, imaginary friends (and children, or have them join too!)  If you share your home, give a heads up that your “do-not-distrub” sign is ACTIVE for the duration of the mediation.

Use headphones or a quality sound system.  The subtleties of frequency are best experienced this way.

Listen to what your body is telling you.  These meditations often induce a state of deep relaxation and you may fall asleep (and that’s good too! You are still receiving the sounds regardless). On the other hand, if you’re overcome with the fidgets, change position or grab that comfy thing, move something, do it! Listen to your body.

Come as you are. Each experience just as every breath is unique. Give yourself permission to be still now.  If thoughts and emotions arise let them come, breathe 3 deep breaths & let them flow through. Be gentle with yourself. In a sound healing session, you don’t need to “do” anything; sound can induce states of relaxation without effort, causing the body to relax and release on its own as the frequencies do their thang. 

Drinks lots of water (make it a coconut water if you really want to access those Bali island vibes) and ground yourself. Deep breaths, slow motion stretches,  incense, a cup of tea, a bubble bath, or journaling are a few favorites.

Pyramids of Chi is on Chill...

Greg Chambers

***Updated***

PYRAMIDS OF CHI CLOSURE

 

Om Swastiastu

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Pyramids of Chi will be closed until further notice. Following guidelines from the World Health Organization, we feel it best for the safety of our guests and staff to take some time out in isolation to reflect, recharge and overcome the fear that this pandemic has spread throughout the global community.

This has been an incredibly difficult decision. The Pyramids of Chi was founded as a healing center, not for commercial gain, so in a time when the community needs us as a healing refuge or haven, it is heartbreaking to turn them away. However, we respect the need for social responsibility and look toward a time when we can spread our positive vibrations and frequencies once more.

Remember, use this time that has been given to us for positive change. Meditation and relaxation have been proven to boost your immune system. Tune out of the world news and tune into yourself. Together we will adapt, overcome and welcome a new world. 

Much love and good vibrations from the Pyramids of Chi team.

HYGIENE & SANITISATION STANDARDS

During our closure, we will be undertaking a complete sanitization program along with some maintenance and construction so when we reopen our doors guests will be greeted by the best Pyramids of Chi yet.

Further actions we will take when welcoming guests back include:

  • Guests who are experiencing flu-like symptoms will be asked to stay home
  • Session numbers will be reduced to adhere to current social distancing advice
  • Mattresses during sessions will be separated by a minimum 1.5 meters
  • Linen will be laundered after every guest interaction
  • Hygiene and cleanliness standards will have been further increased with antibacterial cleaning products being used throughout the property
  • Hand sanitizer will continue to be available on all café tables
  • Soap and disposable hand towels will continue to be available in all restrooms
  • Staff training has been undertaken and is continually monitored for personal hygiene

We wish you all the very best of health and look forward to welcoming you back to our world of Ancient Sound Healing.

March 2020 New Moon in Aries

Guest

Below are some selected Astral Insights to provide you with a range of resources to explore! May these words be received with the intention they were written.

NEW MOON in Aries March 24th 2020~ by Mystic Mama

Dear sisters and brothers,
I’ve been listening within to what would be most helpful at this time and yielding to it.  I’ve been called to share guidance more directly, in the hopes that it can be helpful in addressing both our collective and personal experience, and support us in seeing things from a healing vantage.
During these next two weeks or so, we will most likely feel a wide spectrum of emotions getting stirred as this pandemic continues to ripple through.
We must take it day by day, moment by moment. Remembering that all that we are feeling is ok and keeping our hearts open despite the pain, despite the upheaval that we are each feeling and processing in our own ways.
We have and will continue to have new challenges to face in very real ways, and we’ll be forced to come up with new solutions to cope, new ways to adapt to the changes.
There are many who are being affected in extremely physical ways, health-wise and financial, and I encourage us all to hold them in our prayers and wrap them in a vision of comfort and support during these very trying times.
The same goes for all our sisters and brothers on the frontlines;  for their service to us during this time.
We are each being called to do our part and sacrifice or “make sacred” for the good of the whole, as we seed the Aquarian vision for our collective future.

Intuitive Astrology: Aries New Moon March 2020 by Tanaaz

"The Aries New Moon is typically one of the best for manifesting, setting intentions, and planting seeds. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and New Moons signal the start of a new lunar cycle, so there is strong energy for new beginnings and fresh starts.

In 2020, the Aries New Moon falls on March 24, just a few days after a string of potent cosmic events, including theEquinox, the Mars Jupiter Conjunction, and the most pivotal, Saturn moving into Aquarius.

All of this energy is already sending intense waves out into the cosmos and the New Moon will heighten all of this, plus bring a little of its own energy too.

Chiron is the wounded healer, but it has the gift of being able to take its wounds and make them powerful portals of healing. How can we embrace the same?
 
Interestingly, this New Moon falls at 4 degrees of Aries, which has been a trend. Back in February, the New Moon was at 4 degrees Pisces, in January the New Moon was at 4 degrees of Aquarius, in December, the New Moon Eclipse was at 4 degrees of Capricorn. In 2020, we are also in a number 4 year according tonumerology.

In a number 4 year, we are called to return to the self and to find ways to create safety, comfort, and purpose from within.

4 represents feeling at home within ourselves, and it definitely seems this is a trend for many of us right now.
 
In astrology, 4 degrees of Aries is actually a very spiritually sensitive degree of the zodiac. It indicates advanced psychic energies and the ability to ascend to higher realms while remaining grounded.
 
At this time we can all deepen our connection with Spirit and use it as a tool to connect with who we are and what we can do to feel more at home within ourselves.
 
How can you become a vessel for Spirit? How can you allow Spirit to take the lead in your life and show you the way forward?
 
Sometimes one of the most powerful intentions we can set is to surrender to the Divine, Source, the Universe, or whatever we want to call it, and just allow it to show us the way to the perfect new beginnings for our soul."

Happy Galungan from The Pyramids of Chi!

Guest

"Galungan is the most important feast for Balinese Hindus. The festival is a celebration to honor the creator of the universe (Ida Sang Hyang Widi) and the spirits of the honored ancestors. It symbolizes the victory of good (Dharma) over evil (Adharma) and encourages the Balinese to show their gratitude with offerings, prayer, and dance."

Offerings to the Ancestors

"Galungan occurs twice a year in the 210-day cycle of the Balinese calendar (explained in this article about Bali's culture) and marks the time of the year when the spirits of the ancestors are believed to visit the earth. Balinese Hindus perform rituals that are meant to welcome and entertain these returning spirits.

The house compounds that make up the nucleus of Balinese society come alive with devotions offered by the families living within. Families offer bountiful sacrifices of food and flowers to the ancestral spirits, expressing gratitude and hopes for protection. These sacrifices are also offered at local temples, which are packed with devotees.

The whole island sprouts tall bamboo poles, or penjor, which are usually decorated with fruit, coconut leaves, and flowers and set up on the right of every residence entrance. At each gate, you'll also find small bamboo altars set up especially for the holiday, each one bearing woven palm-leaf offerings for the spirits."

Intensive Preparations

The preparations for Galungan begin several days before the actual feast day

Penyekeban

Three days before Galungan, families begin their preparations with "Penyekeban." Penyekeban literally means "the day to cover up," as this is the day when green bananas are covered up in huge clay pots to speed their ripening.

Penyajahan

Two days beforehand marks a time of introspection for Balinese and, more prosaically, a time to make the Balinese cakes known as jaja. These colored cakes made of fried rice dough are used in offerings and are also eaten especially on Galungan. This time of year finds a glut of jaja in every village market.

Penampahan

The day before is slaughter day. On this day, Balinese slaughter the sacrificial animals that will go into the temple or altar offerings. Galungan is marked by a sudden surplus of traditional Balinese food, like lawar (a spicy pork and coconut sauce dish) and satay.

Galungan Day

Balinese devotees pray at the temples and make their offerings to the spirits. Women are seen carrying the offerings on their heads, while men bring palm fronds.

Kuningan

The tenth day after Galungan Day marks the end of Galungan and is believed to be the day when the spirits ascend back to heaven. On this day, Balinese make special offerings of yellow rice.

Happy Galungan from The Pyramids of Chi tribe!

November New Moon 2019

Greg Chambers

New Moon Ceremony

$28.00

The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the next lunar cycle. In the darkness, the fertile ground, plant the seeds of your heartfelt desires during our shamanic fire ceremony followed by a 1 hour ancient sound healing session and ending with a tasty, vegetarian dinner!

“Falling on the 26th in the sign of Sagittarius, this is an abundant New Moon that brings opportunities to start over, to reach further, and to rework areas of our lives that have grown stale or become unwelcome.

Since this time, we have all been guided to reach deep and to rise into a new strength and a new power.
Take a moment to identify what this has been for you. Take a moment to honor your lunar journey and to think about all you have achieved and all you have accomplished.

Whatever has come you have made it through, whatever has been is now in the past, and as we welcome the dark Sagittarius Moon, it is time for us to turn our attention to the next chapter

There is healing quality to this November New Moon that will also be our guide. This healing quality asks that we accept ourselves, love ourselves, but more importantly, forgive ourselves.

Allow the vibrations of the November New Moon to wash over you. Spend time in quiet reflection, and don’t shy away from the dark, instead embrace it as an opportunity to start fresh and to paint the world in your own colors.

The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by the Centaur aiming its arrow into the sky.

Load your bow and arrow and point it nice and high, for as the clichéd saying goes- aim for the Moon, because even if you miss, you will land among the stars.” ~ foreverconscious.com

Potato Head | Sun Down Circle #028

Greg Chambers

We are part of a unique event with Potato Head Beach Club Bali on August 3. It is a sunrise sound healing on the beach in Seminyak. Two of our gong masters, Sky and Didi, will be facilitating the Sunrise Circle Sound healing session, followed by a communal breakfast with Lawrence Blair. The celebrated explorer will lend his knowledge on sacred geometry to reveal the true symbolism of the ancient symmetric shape. The daytime activities then move to Sustainism Lab where the team from Green School’s Innovation Hub will investigate the connections among sound, art and nature in a cymatics workshop for kids.

Whether you’re more sunrise or sunset—or a magical balance of both—we hope to see you for this very special 5th anniversary of Sun Down Circle!
