What Is Orgonite Gifting?
The original Orgonite gifting compendium by Don Croft
Don Croft is definitely the "chief instigator" of this whole orgone gifting movement or whatever you want to call it. Don Croft prefers the term orgone gifting network because it is an unstructured effort without any hierarchies, gurus and the like.
There is no prescribed way of doing this which makes it so difficult for us because people are understandably asking for guidance.
Don's personal recommendations for orgone gifting may give you a better idea of what this is all about:
GIFTING July 18, 05
(Originally pubished by Don Croft at Etheric Warriors. www.ethericwarriors.com)
‘Cbswork,’ our good friend in LA who is mostly responsible for having cleared away the smog there, stopping the chemtrails and bringing abundant, regular rainfall for the first time in recorded history, introduced the term, ‘Gifting,’ to describe the process of changing unbalanced and even deadly energy into life force by the simple process of placing ordinary orgonite devices near sources of the former. ‘Orgonite’ is the term we use for the combination of catalysed resin, metal particles and quartz crystal. We use the term both to honor Dr. Wilhelm Reich, who introduced this new science to humanity, and to indicate that this material balances the ambient energy fields in creation by transmuting unbalanced and harmful energies into healthy life force (orgone).
There are scores of manufacturers of tactical orgonite devices. The ones we’re personally familiar with and recommend are listed in the vendors’ section of ethericwarriors.com.
In order to turn an average death tower into a life force generator it apparently takes at least 3oz of ordinary orgonite and the challenge has been for someone to crank these out for a price that anyone who doesn't want to get his/her hands sticky can afford. Ordinary orgonite is a quantity of metal particles saturated with catalysed resin to which a simple, small quartz crystal has been added. There are ways to boost orgonite’s potential with gems, specific metals, coils and fancy crystals but that’s for personal use, not for leaving out in the field. Orgonite enhances these materials’ potential to interact with our own energy fields.
Disabling the new death towers, transforming the energy of predatory/parasitic institutions, raising the awareness of entire cities, regions and even nations, and restoring the earth’s vital energy grid can all be done with simple tactical orgonite. It's a utilitarian process that just happens to make up the bulk of our Gifting challenge right now. In most regions of the world there is an average of one new death transmitter for every 2,000 people, for instance. Even the semi-awake are recognizing, by now, that these fortified, massively powered deadly orgone radiation transmitters aren't for cellphones.
When you get into this fieldwork you’ll see that orgone, which is the matrix of the universe, is intelligent, dynamic, sustaining and even humorous. Dr Reich turned materialistic science on its ear in the 1930s by demonstrating this simple truth, which is why Einstein ostracized him and the paranoid, nazi mentality of the United States in those days literally murdered him by 1957. Thankfully, that ugly old paradigm has so thoroughly exited the stage that you, personally, won’t ever be harmed for doing this wonderful environmental healing work. It’s obvious that the more this network grows, the safer it’s becoming to heal the planetary lesions that were initiated by that receding, satanic, essentially parasitic and opportunistic occult world order.
Since none of us are being paid to gift, the little Towerbusters, Holy Handgrenades, Etheric Pipebombs and Earthpipes are literally ‘gifts’ to the environment and to the community but the primary recipient of the wonderful effects of this service seems to be the gifter him/herself because the process stimulates our desire to stretch and grow spiritually and even psychically. Not least, it empowers us in a profound way because we can easily witness the effects of our efforts to thoroughly heal this previously beleaguered world. Did you ever fancy that you could improve the weather, get rid of smog and make everyone happier without them ever knowing the cause of their new good fortune? These are a few of the things that you’re going to experience and observe.
My main impetus in offering this information to you is the hope that you’ll transform the horrible effects of the millions of new Entropy transmitters and the vastly expanded HAARP network in your community and the surrounding area. These extremely powerful transmitters were intended to subdue the populace in order to facilitate global tyranny/genocide and to change this lovely planet into a desert. In the past couple of years our modest global network may have made that destructive, exploitive agenda of the occult/corporate world order impossible to fulfil but, of course, until all of these transmitters are disabled the environment around the ones that are still functioning will remain unpleasant and even potentially deadly. The occult/corporate folks never walk away from equity—we have to take it from them by transforming their very costly death-energy matrix.. We’ll know the threat’s entirely gone when all of these millions of human predators and parasites in the hidden government around the world are rounded up and herded into newly- viable courts of law for timely and fair prosecution and punishment.
The other thrust of our initiative is to heal the vital earth grids. Fortunately for the less energy sensitive among us, these grid lines and vortices are clearly marked by the new Entropy and HAARP towers, so changing these death transmitters into life force transmitters by gifting does double duty of healing the atmosphere/ambience and healing the earth’s own life force circulatory system. All standing towers need gifting. Even the radio and TV station transmitters are clearly part of the HAARP expansion now. Legitimate communication transmitters and even high-tension power transmission lines are relatively harmless to the environment compared to these newer horrors and gifting doesn’t interfere with any of them.
As Cbswork had predicted, since the solstice in December, 2003, the Sylphs have been giving us signs of their presence and assistance by generating distinctive cloudforms whenever they’re asked sincerely for help and even when unasked. Their clear communications are apparently given to individual hearts in recognition for the healing work that this network has done over the past four years. He assures us that all that’s required to get these confirmations is a heartfelt request. The ‘new paradigm’ is already here. It’s up to us to adjust to it. We’re free to do this work now. Five years ago we’d have all been killed for it and even a year ago anyone who gifted had to ‘lose’ an entourage of CIA, FBI, NSA, MI6, Mossad, KGB (‘a rose by any other name, etc.’), Interpol and various other agencies’ pavement artists. Keeping a Succor Punch turned on in the car or in a fanny pack disables all electronic surveillance, even satellite views, apparently. Freedom is more challenging to some than slavery is. Succor Punches are available at a reasonable cost from www.ctbusters.com, www.orgonise-africa.net, www.quebecorgone.com, orgoneaustralia.com.au and various other vendors.
We’ve lately come to realize that the Sylphs have been an integral contingent of the consortium of benevolent entities whom Carol and I have been calling ‘The Operators.’ Witnessing the interplay of these groups on our behalf makes any earthly or ‘galactic’ fabrication of occult hierarchies seem infantile and institutionalized to me.
Confirmation is a sort of birthright for anyone who steps forward to heal the world now, we believe. ‘Cbswork’ is largely responsible for having brought abundant rain to Southern California and for removing the smog from the Los Angeles Basin, by the way. Steve Baron is the first to gather a large group for the purpose of busting an entire metropolitan area and as of this writing (Sept, 04) they’re nearly done in and around Toronto after two months of intense, systematic production and gifting work. The confirmations, according to firsthand reports, are quite dramatic.
We constantly strive to reduce this process to the most easily replicated and effective methods. If you’ll carefully consider our easy, nuts and bolts approach you’ll get the requisite happy results and signs of your success and if you’re interested in more arcane, dynamic workings of subtle, powerful energy, Cbswork’s site will stimulate your creativity, confirm some of those things that you might have thought you were crazy for witnessing or thinking, and his offerings may even help you to unlock your own latent psychic talent if that’s where your interest lies.
A lot of what I’m about to describe came from what I’ve picked up from our interaction with him and a few other gifted folks over the past couple of years and of course what Carol and I started three years ago with our orgonite cloudbusters is what inspired him to lend a hand to this global effort and to help us all expand its parameters. He produced CHEMTRAILS: CLOUDS OF DEATH before he introduced himself to us in April, 2002. The DVD version of that half-hour, empowering video are available from ethericfire.com. His help has been essential and instrumental and I know you’ll benefit as much from his astounding expertise and experience as we have. Having spent the first phase of his life as a celebrity and unwitting servant of the global occult hierarchy, he now wishes to remain behind the scenes, though, and we all need to respect that.
By the way, most of the results that had been achieved in the atmosphere with orgonite cloudbusters before the advent of these new transmitters can now be achieved even more dramatically by just gifting the towers because the towers themselves become orgone generators after gifting. We rather focus our cloudbusting efforts in deserts now, and in areas where very long-term drought has prevented life force from finding proper expression, though having your own cloudbuster will guarantee that your area will no longer experience violent storms, strong winds or floods. Gifting the towers doesn’t prevent some of the violent characteristics of weather. That subject’s thoroughly covered elsewhere, of course.
The bulk of the gifting work can be done with two basic devices, though we’re doing field experiments with a possible new addition for economically and safely disabling underground sources of evil: the Earthpipe. I’ll discuss the Etheric Pipe Bomb, which has been showing a lot of promise for cleaning up and clearing bodies of polluted and/or muddy water, including saltwater, with less orgonite than would be required otherwise. Both of these devices were introduced by others. Gale Stark made the prototype Earthpipe and Greg Brown developed the Etheric Pipebomb, which he prefers to call, ‘Peace Pipe,’ by the way.
The main device for gifting, still, is the 3oz Towerbuster, mad twelve at a time in a muffin pan. Really, it can all be done (except for the underground targets) with this device alone but the HHg and the EPB will save steps and material in certain situations by multiplying the effects of orgonite, alone.
To start, here’s how I make nearly all of my Holy Handgrenades and Towerbusters. Please note that double terminated or otherwise fancy crystals are not needed for any of these devices! If anyone tells you otherwise, he’s either selling crystals or is misinformed.
Ryanmcginty.com has excellent photo tutorials for your convenience.
3-OUNCE TOWER BUSTER:
I started out making these in little 3oz paper cups but after deploying a couple of thousands of those during the testing phase in August, 2002, I tried muffin pans and now I make most of them this way. The only reason I still make a few in paper cups is so that I can shoot them, 200 yards, out of my Spudgun, which I bought from www.spudtech.com (you need the 2” barrel version, and you don’t need the fancy, non-portable propane rig)
In a way, this non- lethal artillery piece is sort of like a back scratcher: sometimes you just can’t quite get orgonite close enough to the target by tossing and this does the trick. Be careful not to do what one of our fellow spiritual road warriors did, though: he inadvertently shot a TB into one of those big, nasty ELF drum transmitters, right through the drumskin. I’ve used the Spudgun exclusively in gridding remote polluted areas because I didn’t want the secret police’s snooper minions to find them within throwing distance of the road.
‘Overgifting’ often helpful in key areas, like Los Angeles, where the satanic, occult/corporate world order had put an awful lot of stock in their Deadly Orgone Radiation generating infrastructure, not that it did them any good ;-), and the people are generally in a degraded spiritual state, so are also producing more than a usual amount of deadly energy themselves.
The vast bulk of gifting work is done with the 3-Oz. Towerbusters, by the way. We sometimes get a chuckle at the notion that a few people have had that making a heroic single device will disable a whole lot of towers. This network isn’t for chest pounders or makers of extraordinary, proprietary claims. We don’t need to be ‘saved’ by anyone else’s arcane efforts, after all—we need to save ourselves, so I think it’s appropriate that the infantry-style taking of territory by tower-to- tower gifting is the only one that works and it is, after all, the most empowering, confirming aspect of this effort. That’s just part of growing up and a network develops through the same stages that a human being does. Consider all these new deathforce transmitters in your community as your golden opportunity to seize your freedom/responsibility birthright and also to provide a profoundly precious service (healing) to your community.
I’ll now go over the muffin tray method, which can be applied to the paper cup method, of course:
1. I use non-stick muffin pans but of course the resin contracts as it cools, so even the cheaper ones work fine.
2. While you’re in MalWart getting those pans, and if you don’t have any little pieces of quartz on hand, go to the craft section and get the mesh bags of tumbled rocks (the smaller rocks). Pick out the quartz and other clear or white crystals. You can also get bits of quartz from the soil or streambed if you have a clue what to look for. The cloudy, even white, broken bits are just as good as a ten dollar Herkimer diamond, of course, for this application.
If you opt for the dollar bag of MalWart polished stones and are unsure that you can spot quartz on the ground or creekbed, find the ones that are semi-transparent and/or dirty- looking but clear inside. The white ones are often just marble, which is not as good as quartz but is adequate for TBs. You can get suitable quartz crystals by the pound from Gladys Bridges at email@example.com but I mention WalMart to show you that it’s not hard to find ingredients. Gladys sends out distinct quartz pieces that are between a quarter and a half inch long. You get a LOT of crystals in a pound.
3. Drop a small xtal in each muffin mould. I often use a broken just a dirty, broken crystal chip about the size of your little toenail but if you’re new to this you likely won’t feel confident doing this. My confidence is based on a couple of years of towerbusting experience, so I know that a TB with a funky little chip will bust an average Entropy tower and I’m stating it for the record.
4. Fill the molds almost to the top with loose metal. Remember that 3oz is sufficient and that the molds are each 4oz. I want you to get the absolute most bangs for your hard- earned or even lazily-obtained buck. 3oz of orgonite in a holly or juniper bush is sufficient for busting most of the single transmitters you’ll encounter and even for turning those frowns of a chapel- full of devil- hating churchgoers upside down.
5. Pour the resin in by stages until it comes almost up to the brim of the mold after you’ve put the metal and crystal in. If the metal is too fine to permit the resin to soak through before hardening, mix the metal with the catalysed resin, then spoon it in like you’re making cornbread. You’re probably going to learn the hard way to mix in the catalyst first. I’m still learning that lesson from time to time ;-)
6. When I’m going to toss out a bunch in town, I paint them green and brown (camo scheme). You’ll be surprised how difficult these are to find once they’ve been tossed.
HOLY HANDGRENADE (approximately 12oz):
1. Fold a piece of typing paper twice and then open it into a cone shape. Tape the overlap and underlap with masking tape to help it hold its shape.
2. After you’ve shaped it into a cone, put the opened cone upside down in a paper cup.
3. We cut a 26” length of 18 gauge copper wire and form it into a clockwise cone spiral (it resembles the tip of a big screw) so that it fits loosely inside the paper cone. You can make it pretty rough or get one of Christy Murphy’s nifty conespiral bending forms from www.quebecorgone.com. Orgone simply loves to run along and thru curved, orderly pathways. 26” works well for us but there’s no specific reason for the length except Carol likes it. We haven’t seen any evidence that ‘lost cubits’ or other specific measures are relevant to this work, by the way.
4. Put a big pinch of metal particles into the pointy end of the cone, right on top of the little end of the copper spiral. I like to use BBs (small, copper or zinc-coated ball bearings that American kids shoot from air rifles) for the tips of my HHgs but they’re very heavy and expensive if you’re making a lot of HHgs and TBs. The spherical form and also the plated zinc and copper over steel provide some pretty dynamic energy qualities but any meta waste from a machine shop is more than sufficient.
5. Shove a fat xtal (my abbreviation for ‘crystal’), point down, into the metal so that it’s standing up, point sticking toward the point of the cone, then put a little more metal in to hold it in place. I use very cheap, funky- looking crystals for this which have one distinct end. Any form of quartz works fine, by the way, for any of the items mentioned in this document—amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, etc. Save the fancy ones for personal
devices, though, if you feel inclined to experiment with the dynamics of gemstones. For
an HHg I’ll use anything that’s at least an inch long and a half inch thick with one distinct point. Gladys puts plenty of these in her ‘per pound’ orders, along with the towerbuster crystals.
6. Now pour enough catalysed resin in to saturate the metal. If your metal particles are too fine for the resin to pour thru befo re it hardens, mix the stuff before you put it in the inverted cone—don’t learn this the hard way, as I did (and still do ;-)! The level of resin and the level of metal after it’s saturated needs to be about the same, otherwise you’re wasting some resin. It’s better to have metal sticking out of the bottom of the finished product than to have less metal than resin. It’s the metal that does the work, apparently; the resin is the matrix.
7. We add a bit of garnets, hematite and crushed pyrite to interactive orgonite devices, which is to say devices that are near us all the time. These things are completely un-necessary for the ‘tactical’ devices which are left out in the field, also un- necessary for cloudbusters because we don’t really interact with them much. Adding gems, coils and minerals to orgonite without having a talent for it is pretty much guaranteed to create some conflict within the material when it’s near you. A few ill- intentioned folks have even managed to market orgonite that makes yo u feel crummy but even this stuff probably busts towers and heals vortices if nobody’s near the devices. There are books that can teach you the properties of gemstones and minerals and how to make harmonious, specific combinations and these properties are greatly enhanced by orgonite.
My favorite, because it’s based on a combination of intuition and extensive empirical testing (our preferred research approach), is Michael Gienger’s CRYSTAL POWER, CRYSTAL HEALING. I don’t personally care much for channelled literature because there’s no science behind it, so no way to support the data, and it encourages blind acceptance and herd responses. Science and spirituality are inseparable, in my opinion. Leaving one or the other out of our personal life leaves us either materialistic or superstitious but when they’re in harmony, we’re empowered and intelligent.
8. Fill to the brim, in stages if necessary, with orgonite and when it’s hard, it’s finished. You can leave the paper on or peel it off. I leave the paper on and sometimes paint them green and brown with spraypaint if I won’t be burying it and you’d be surprised how hard it is to see a camouflaged HHG once it’s been put in a bush or other hiding place.
9. Notice that I’m not putting additional crystals in the mix as we’d advised in earlier instructions. I simply found that using one bulky xtal in the point makes the other ones extraneous. I think the coil is important in this case. Save the fancy efforts for your personal devices
ETHERIC PIPE BOMB:
This is Greg Brown's concept which has been found expedient for reviving bodies of water and clarifying them. Greg’s our network’s etheric horticulture consultant and his site is https://community-2.webtv.net/Yardworms/VermiGardens/ . He calls them ‘Peace Pipes,’ by the way. Just half- fill any length of empty pipe with orgonite and a single, towerbuster-type of crystal and toss it in polluted water.
I did an acre-sized pond in Uganda with five pipe bombs, 9 inches long and 7/8" diameter and a week later the scummy, opaque and stinky water had turned clear, smelled nice and had no scum at all.
A few weeks later, some Japanese relief workers from the city were seen fishing there. The size of these things is determined by your own discretion, apparently. We haven’t found that one size is optimal, just that what we’ve done works.

Some of us feel that the underground bases are the next high priority after busting the new towers, taking back the earthgrid and neutralizing satanic institutions and killing sites/vortices. Most of the towers are on the earth grid and vortices and most of the satanic sites are also on or close to these features, so you'll get a lot of Bang for our orgonite Buck ;-).
For now, I’m also recommending Vancouver Steve’s treasured method: fill a toilet paper core tube with orgonite and a single, 1” long quartz crystal of any quality, wrapped in a coil, and drop it down a fencepost, stop sign pole or any other (at least) 2” diameter pipe that’s set in the ground. Steve carries a little stepladder on his bicycle for his urban gifting missions. This does double duty as a towerbuster and underground base buster.
By the way, Brent in Northern Alberta came up with this idea independently, too, at the same time and adopted this as his winter gifting modus operendi until the thaw. I hate to think about where we’d be now without the informal corps of hotblooded Canadians in this network!
Brent once hired a bush pilot to take him to gift a primary earth node farther to the north and Gerard in Australia undertook a similar sortee in the Outback in his own airplane. Doc Batiibwe and Kizira lately hired a big dugout canoe to locate and gift some primary (watery) earth energy sites in Lake Victoria near the headwaters of the Nile. No discussion like this is complete without a mention, at least, of our intrepid African compatriots.
Gale, Laozu Kelly, Stacie, Carol and I have conceived a long-range way to disrupt and neutralize underground predatory tech but it's still in the testing phase. The unfortunate part of disabling underground sources of deadly energy is that the results are not as visible, so we have to rely on the psychics or our own instincts for confirmations. I hesitate to recommend anything for which you won’t get abundant physical confirmations but I feel okay about recommending the deployment of Earthpipes because the threat represented by these horrible underground facilities is quite severe, in my opinion, and very widespread. The following instructions describe how we make ours:
1. Cut a length of 1 1/2 inch copper or aluminium pipe into 13” lengths
2. Thoroughly tape one end of each pipe closed. If you’re not thorough, resin will leak out the bottom.
3. Temporarily tape or wire seven of the pipes together so that the whole will stand up by itself with the taped ends at the bottom.
4. The orgonite ‘plug’ in the bottom of each EP needs to be at least five inches long, so drop 2 or 3 oz of mixed orgonite in each pipe.
5. Select a suitable xtal for each pipe. We use xtals that are at least an inch long and at least a quarter inch thick and have one distinct point.
6. Cut 13” of bare copper wire. We use 18 gauge wire but the point is to use wires that’s thick enough to hold a shape and thin enough to work easily. Those coil forms that Christy in Ireland makes are wonderful for making suitable coils. They’re available from www.quebecorgone.com
7. After bending the wire to resemble the end of a big screw, just like was done for the HHg, only smaller, pinch the small end of the coil around the middle of the crystal. Remember that the whole thing will have to fit easily in the pipe. You may want to tape or glue the coil to the crystal so the unit doesn’t fall apart when you drop it down into the pipe.
8. Here’s the mind bending bit: as with the HHg, these are being made upside down. The xtal in the Earthpipe points down into the ground. The hollow end of the pipe is the bottom. The cone shape of the coil flares away from the pointed end. When the pipe is in the ground, the xtal points down and the cone coil opens upward from the middle of the xtal, sort of like a dart in a blowgun ;-)
9. I measured the amount of orgonite in an Earthpipe and its five ounces, so after you drop in the pipe in the proper orientation, just spoon in the remaining orgonite. If you mix it loosely enough, the mass of orgonite will fill in around the coil and xtal, don’t worry.
10. When you get to the target area, just pound the whole thing down into sufficiently soft, stone-free ground. I hammer the pipe with a six pound sledge hammer. It damages the pipe a little but that’s okay. Remember that the orgonite plug is in the top of the device. This takes advantage of the resonant cavity principle.
10. You need a six pound sledge hammer or so to knock these into the ground. Just hammer the end of the pipe in that case. If you can find a stream, swamp or estuary you can probably just push it all the way into the ground.
ROSIE’S HELPFUL HINTS
If you want something done or described efficiently it’s a good idea to track down a German. The following hints from Rosie in Bavaria will be helpful to anyone who finds my own instructions abstruse or confusing:
To make small orgone devices, like with everything , it is good to be prepared.
Have on hand: a big sheet of cardboard or a trash bag to cover your work surface. (The stuff is very sticky and will mess up a table good.), rinsed half gallon cardboard milk cartons, for mixing the resin with the hardener (they have a spout for pouring), rubber household gloves to protect your hands, a couple of old spoons, for spooning the metal into the muffin tins, that is if you have metal of sawdust size (that stuff can cut your hands. I got lots of little Knicks the first time), a stick for stirring the hardener into the resin, some rags, old socks or the like for wiping off your utensils. That stuff does not wash off.
Do it in a well-ventilated garage or outside.
One and a fourth litre (about five cups) is enough for two muffin trays.
If it is cold the stuff I use will take over night to solidify.
On my first try the Tbs stuck in the pan. Warming them up seemed to shrink them. I now put them in the sun and cover them with a sheet of plastic or the like. No more sticking.
GENERAL GIFTING RECOMMENDATIONS (This is a compendium of advice from many people which we’ve found to be consistent)
The first time we ever ‘gifted’ an energy polluter with orgonite was when we arrived in Florida in November, 2000. We were lying on a beach on Plum Island and Carol told me that the energy field of the Terminator that was sitting on my chest had expanded and, gotten denser & more vibrant. The Terminator is our zapper model and our main source of livelihood. It has a small orgonite device in it, along with the electronic circuit and some other subtle energy components.
The only other time she’d seen the orgone field expand around orgonite that way was when we passed by a nuke plant in Oregon, so we drove down the length of Plum Island and, sure enough, a nuke plant was 20 miles away. A couple of days later I made a little ‘buster’ by filling in a 1”x2”x3” zapper box with a couple of quartz crystals embedded in the mix and we headed for the offending nuke.
As Carol watched the DOR field (very dense, active and dark right around the nuke and it extended beyond her range of vision) I tossed the thing into the bushes as close as possible to the nuke (about a quarter mile from the building, right beside the highway).
DOR is shorthand for ‘deadly orgone radiation.’ All nuclear reactors generate a huge DOR field, which can’t be shielded by anything. One way of finding hidden nukes is to look for smog patches in areas where there are few people living.
Carol said the DOR field immediately reduced into a spherical form whose radius was apparently from the reactor to the little buster in the bushes. Driving away, she saw that the Terminator’s energy field was now just the same as it would be if there was no nuke in the area and we wondered how many people would now not have to experience cancer, fatigue, depression, irritability and slow death from the life-sucking effects of that now- shrunken DOR field.
Before that, we’d similarly gifted a few occult locations, including some major vortices, but this was the beginning of our atmosphere-healing work. Four months later we’d made our first cloudbuster and were making HHgs, which are the cone-shaped orgonite devices that I described near the beginning of this paper.
Here are the gifting protocols that Carol and I use:
