The shape of a Pyramid is very powerful. A crystal pyramid can be used to manifest intention or direct energy toward a specific outcome. Pyramids are often used as the focus stone when creating a crystal grid.
The ancients knew the power of different shapes, but the power of the pyramid was specifically used by the ancient Egyptians. Pyramids served as the tombs of many Pharaohs and Priestesses and also the center for the Mystery Schools of the Ancient Egyptian culture. The many mysterious uses of the Egyptian pyramids lingers on in our imaginations, but speculation has it that they were build as "power towers" that radiated sound waves to communicate to alien civilizations. Pyramids are also touted to be able to preserve foods, maintain the sharpness of razor blades, improve health function, trigger sexual urges and cause other dramatic effects.
