Geopathic stress, sick buildings syndrome, black lines, Radon gas, Lung Mai (earth meridian) whatever we call them, they exist. Over the last few months we have been called out to more consultations than ever relating to Geopathic stress and related problems. A good Geomancer will know how to cure them. It is an art of “dowsing” and using earth’s acupuncture to cure them.

Geopathic stress has been found to be the most common factor in most serious and long-term illnesses, and psychological conditions. Research suggests that 85% of people that are suffering ill health are sleeping in a Geopathic Stressed area. What exactly is Geopathic Stress? Geopathic Stress (GS) or harmful earth rays, is natural radiation which rises up through the earth and is distorted by weak electro-magnetic fields created by subterranean running water, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities. The wavelengths of the natural radiation disturbed in this way become harmful to living organisms.


GS does not cause any illness, but lowers your immune system and your ability to fight off viruses and bacterium. Whilst we are sleeping the body should be at rest and it can then do its repair work on body cells, fight infections, and absorb nutrients from the food eaten that day, However, when we are sleeping in a GS place the body has to use all its energy to just keep its vital organs going and therefore the immune system is lowered, we cannot absorb our nutrients or fight off infections. The most common indications of GS are resistance to treatment (conventional or alternative), feeling run down and exhausted, depression, nervousness, pallor, allergies, insomnia, restless sleep, migraine, feeling cold, cramps, tingling in arms and legs, sleep walking, grinding teeth, nightmares, fatigue, headaches on waking or fuzzy heads or just a feeling of bad luck (“it always happens to me”). GS can cause miscarriages, behavioural problems in children and infertility.

When sleeping in a GS place during pregnancy it can contribute to an unhealthy newborn baby. Research has shown that 90% of babies, who died of cot death, had been sleeping in GS places. Children sleeping in GS do not thrive, and are often hyperactive and allergic, including asthma and eczema.

They may bed wet, have learning difficulties at school or behavioural problems. GS is a major factor contributing to cancer. One is unlikely to develop cancer unless one has slept or stayed for long periods over GS. Cancer tumours almost always first develop where two or more GS lines cross. We nearly all produce cancerous cells on a regular basis, but they are continuously destroyed by the body’s immune system. It is very difficult to treat cancer when GS is lowering the immune system.

We have heard it hundreds of times, “We have felt uncomfortable ever since we moved into this house/flat, our health has deteriorated and our previously happy family has become miserable”. So even though you have never heard of Geopathic Stress, you may have felt the effects of it. The outcome has often been that you have moved home again at great expense. That is why houses badly affected by Geopathic Stress come on the market more often than houses, which have none or very little stress. Have you ever wondered why you felt uneasy when you walked into a particular room or why?

Most people in certain houses are always ill? Most likely it is due to Geopathic Stress. GS is present in the majority of people who are depressed, suicidal, and apparently about 70% of people who get divorced (one or both spouses).

Electromagnetic Stress Electromagnetic Stress is man made and mainly caused by power-induced electrical appliances and installations, and covers a vast electro-magnetic spectrum that involves frequencies introduced by radar, Radio and microwave use, including TV’s, VDU’s, microwave ovens, mobile phones, etc. Electromagnetic stress can have the same effect on the brains vibrations as Geopathic stress, and this could also in time lead to health problems and a lowered immune system

TIP Place a piece of clear Quartz near any computer screens or electrical equipment to reduce the effect of Electromagnetic stress

Geomancy is not new; it has been practised for thousands of years, it’s an ancient Earth science. Because our Earth is effectively the same as our bodies; consisting mostly of water with energy channels called meridians. When one of these channels becomes clogged-up it puts more pressure on the rest of the system, interrupts the flow and causes stress and disease.

These blocked meridians are found everywhere, when they run underneath a house it can have devastating effects. In the early years of this century a German Dowser, Baron Von Pohl, developed a scale to analyse the strength and effects of these blocked meridians or “Black streams” as they are commonly referred to on the human body. The scale rates from 1 – 16. With the following effects:

    • 4 No effects.
    • 5 – 6 Obesity and swelling of joints, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety,
  • 7 – 8 Mental disorders, paranoia, schizophrenia obsessions, addictions, psychosexual disorders, suicides and location specific depressions.
  • 9 + Cancer, Leukaemia, Multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, Parkinson’s disease and many other wasting and paralysing disorders of all types. Crohn’s disease; candidacies; Down’s syndrome and other congenital genetic disorders.

Disorders which very commonly have a Geopathic stress component include insomnia and nightmares, sudden infant death syndrome, infertility, myalgic encephalomyelitis (post viral fatigue syndrome), migraine, asthma, eczema, arthritis and rheumatic disorders, and many other chronically depleted immune system conditions. Baron Von Pohl even came to the conclusion that every single disease of humanity can be linked to black streams with the exception of gout. In addition to these meridians there is also a system of global grids that can also cause disease, but on the positive side there are also some that can reverse the effects and even help us to develop ourselves. Geomancy allows us to enhance the benefits of positive grids and reduce the effects of harmful ones.


Cats, owls, snakes, slugs and snails are attracted to black streams, and a cat’s favourite sleeping place (in the absence of an obvious source of warmth) is very often a sure clue to the location of a black stream crossing. Insects, parasites, bacteria and viruses also thrive on black streams, and ant and wasps nests invariably provide a similar clue.

In the vegetable world clues include lightning-struck trees dead or stunted gaps in hedges and avenues of trees, infertile fruit trees, cankers, and strangely twisted trees (usually in the direction of current flow). Fruit trees are the most sensitive, while oaks, redwoods and ashes are more resilient, and elders seem to be positively attracted.

Lawns will often betray bare patches, moss, silver weed and fungi, while vegetable gardens will reveal stunted or mutated growth, especially along the edge lines of the black streams. Ivy, bindweed, nettles, docks, thistles, foxgloves, ferns and nightshades are naturally attracted, and indeed the appropriate medicinal herbs for a sick person are usually to be found in the garden along the path of a black stream running through their bed

Other clues include piles of rubbish, cracks in glass, brick and plasterwork, recurring mechanical and electrical breakdowns, water leaks, derelict areas, and accident black spots both within the home and outside. Fruit and vegetables, grain, ale, cheese, jam, wine and photographic film will all spoil quickly when stored on a black stream.

Sick building syndrome is generally rooted in the presence of black streams under the property. Sha Ch’i can be spread from the paths of the streams throughout the building by the steel construction frames, wiring loom and pipe work, just as it is spread along railway tracks.

Bad neighbour syndrome can frequently be traced to a black stream flowing from aggressor to victim. Haunting of earth-bound human ghosts and other entities, including poltergeist activity are invariably tied to negative earth energies.


Please don’t think, just because you have a headache now and again or woke up a few times with a fuzzy head that you must have black streams, some of the above symptoms can be caused by everyday life, use this information as a base for some detective work, look around your home and garden see if you can find any tell tale signs as detailed above, think about the time you moved into your home, did your life/health/luck start to change? Mechanical items keep breaking down for no apparent reason? Pets acting funny or nervous? I was a little worried that if I give someone the symptoms, they will find a reason in their head to justify that they have this problem, a lot of the information above is well researched scientific research and is well documented and you will find many sites on the Internet to research it further. Fortunately the cure is fairly easy, the easiest example to give is if we were consulted. Michael dowses for the black streams and identifies their strength and direction and then uses earths acupuncture to cure them, I have made that sound so easy, I am sure Michael would go into more detail, he just makes it look easy. In fact it is quite amazing to watch him at work, he normally pinpoints the streams from a floor plan before he sees the client or their property (pretty spooky this part, as he can dowse a floor plan from across the world and locate streams and directions) and then once at the property he lets the client as well as himself dowse to find the streams, sticks a stake in the ground and hey presto those nasty black lines are turned into pure white lines which you can derive the goodness from, now that really does sound easy, it usually takes about 3-4 hours, so it is a bit more involved than I make out. Once cured it can be an overwhelming experience that brings a new lease of life for you and your home or office.

If you think you might be suffering from the above effects, then you can either contact Michael for further details, questions or arrange a consultation. If you use your own consultant make sure she/he is experienced to provide earths acupuncture and dowsing as there are not many consultants that can carry out this procedure, by all means e-mail Michael at with any questions, as he is always happy as I am to give free advice.


Feng Shui tips for health

Below is a great set of tips and ideas for making the most out of your life using Feng Shui to aid your health.

Do you get good nights sleep?

Sleep is vital to your health and it determines how well you function in your day. As the famous mattress ad goes, “tomorrow begins tonight.” From a Feng Shui perspective, there could be various reasons for this.

Your bedroom, your sanctuary.

This is an area where you spend a lot of time, which you rest, sleep, play, dress and dream in. So make sure you have everything you need that induces rest. Are your pillows clean and comfortable, and what about the mattress? Is the room warm enough? Do you have your favorite sheets on and do you change them regularly? Are you turning your mattress over regularly? Do you have clutter under your bed? If you have bed draws under make sure you keep them tidy and if possible only keep sheets or towels in them.

Health factors

Are you also getting enough exercise? Have you got a balanced diet? Remember that the foods you consume also need to have not just a balance from a dietary perspective but also from a yin and yang balance. For example, microwave food is usually too much yang. Coffee keeps people awake. When did you have that last cup and was it too close to bedtime? These are factors you need to ask.

Feng Shui and sleep

Electronic items are not good to keep in your bedroom; they may give you sleepless nights. The television for example is something many people like having in their bedrooms, but what they don”t seem to realise is that it produces too much yang energy which disturbs sleep patterns.

Yin energy is important in bedrooms as it encourages rest and relaxation. High also on the list are Hi-fi sets and even computers. So if you work from home and have a workstation in your bedroom, it is bound to affect your sleep. And to top it all computers and televisions also become a mirror when switched off and work as a reflector. A cure for these problems is keep them covered at night with a sheet.

Married couples could experience a strain in the marriage when the mirror reflects the bed and it could mean the marriage becoming “crowded.” So in short it seem it is better to keep these gadgets out of the bedroom for good. Having said that though.

Your bedroom décor

Is your bedroom painted in a bright fierce colour? That in it represents yang energy. Rooms should preferably in soft pastel shades. Bed-sheets too should be in pastels unless you have been feeling sluggish lately, in which case red bed sheets should be just the right thing.


Make sure that your room is sufficiently lit and yet not overdone. Soft lampshades are fine but spotlights and harsh lighting do not help. On the whole it is not easy to get everything right but trying something new each time helps. So try getting just the right feel and you would know what works for you. Make sure you hang some crystals in the window.

Your bedroom should have a romantic feel to it, with soft colours and lighting. Hang some romantic or saucy pictures on the walls, or some loving couples statues on your bedside or dressing table. Always keep it clean and tidy.

Ps If you have an en-suite make sure you always keep the door closed and toilet seat down.



Activates Chi in your room or office, creating good for the occupants and increases the balance of Yang. As well as looking fantastic.


Fuk,Luk & Sau are the gods of Wealth, Health and Longevity. They represent the three most important aspects of good fortune. Place in your dining or living room to attract the good fortune into your home.


One of the famous three immortals, Longevity (Shou) has many symbols of long life. A bald high cranium, a peach wood staff and a peach in his hand. The peach is an emblem of marriage and symbolic of immortality and good health.


An ancient Chinese way to good health! The two metal balls with high & low sound plates inside. Used to build strength and remove diseases.


If this very special pebble is placed in a container of clear spring water it will after ten minutes or so, have a profound effect on the energy level of the water, turning it into a very powerful Healing Elixir. Although filtered tap water can be used, bottled spring water is much better. You can test this for yourself, by filling two glasses with water from the same source. Place the pebble in one glass and wait for ten minutes. You should then be able to taste the difference.


The Laughing Buddha is a symbol of wealth and happiness; just looking at his jolly face will cheer you up. If you stroke his belly daily he will bring you good luck! Place him anywhere in the house or place of work. Good for child”s bedroom.


Amethyst is the stone that possesses the strongest spiritual energy. It is a remarkable stone as a meditation and concentration support. Amethyst stimulates the intellectual side of your life. Increases activity of right-side brain – purifies blood – reinforces immunity system – increases psychic skills and intuition – tranquilizer.
