Geopathic stress is a natural phonemenon which affects certain places and can be damaging to our health. It relates to irregularities in the earth's magnetic field, which can be aggravated by a variety of features. So come on in, put your feet up awhile, and learn about this interesting topic....what it is, what it does, what the signs and symptoms are, and how you can deal with it if you are being affected.

I have tried to make this an easy site to navigate but am limited by my technical skills. To get around that, to the right you will find an index page link for the tutorials, tools/techniques and videos. More will be added as the blog develops.

Tools and Techniques: Dowsing Tools

Author: Catherine Fortlage

There are almost as many dowsing tools as there are dowsers - and that runs into thousands. However, apart from the really weird dowsing tools, which are very personal to their designers and are usually quite incomprehensible to anyone else, dowsing tools generally fall into a few groups, classified according to the way they work.

There are conventional ways of holding and using the various tools which are appropriate to their function, and for the apprentice dowser it is safer to follow the normal method during the learning stage, eventually developing a personal method as experience ripens.

Some people will tell you that you must face North, wear purple pants, chant a mantra, and use only the little finger of your left hand (except at full moon when you should use your left big toe); but in practice it does not matter in the slightest how you use your dowsing tools - just do whatever feels right for you.

I have never found any ill effects from using other people's tools or lending my own, but some dowsers feel strongly about lending or borrowing tools, and their feelings should be respected - always ask permission to use someone else's gear.

Before using any dowsing tool you should remember the three questions which must be asked before dowsing any subject - May I? Can I ? Should I? - only if the answer to all three is Yes - Yes - Yes, should the dowser continue. When trying out dowsing tools, remember that the "Need to know" principle always applies even when practising; just "having a go for fun" is unlikely to produce any reliable results.

Of all the well known tools, pendulums are probably the most commonly used, varying from a lump of old iron on a bit of string to valuable gem stones on gold chains, and ranging from half pound weights to delicate featherweight pendulums. Next in popularity are the angle rods or L-rods which may also vary in size and weight from heavy steel rods to light swivelling pocket rods. Some people, especially country dowsers working on landscape and water projects, prefer the ancient Vee rods, either the traditional large hazel forked rod, or the modern smaller plastic or wire vee-shaped rods. Both angle rods and Vee rods need two hands to operate them, whereas pendulums, bobbers and wands can be used single handed. Then there are the straight rods; either bobbers which give a yes or no answer, or wands which can give a wide range of responses. There are also two well known complex tools; the aurameter and the revealer, which will be described in more detail later.

Pendulums have the advantage that they are easy to carry, simple to use, and can give a wide range of responses; they are ideal for indoor use, map dowsing, and can be discreetly used in public places. Anything makes a pendulum - car keys or neck chains, or shoulder strap handbags will do perfectly well. You can even swing one shoe by its laces if necessary, though this may look a bit odd in the supermarket. Some people like to stick to one pendulum, others like to use several different types, some like long strings, others like short strings - use what you like. I use a heavy brass plumb bob out of doors, and a crystal ball on a silver chain, which lives round my neck, indoors.

Pendulums can swing side to side, forward and backward, circle right or left, or swing in a random pattern. These five movements can be programmed by the dowser to answer "yes" or "no", "don’t know", "what a silly question", and "you mustn't ask this". The strength of the swing indicates the force of the answer - if you ask whether a particular food is safe to eat and you get a really wild swing for "no" - don't touch it, though a slight swing might mean that the food will be OK with indigestion tablets. Using one hand for the pendulum and the other for writing notes, planting markers, or tracing lines on a map is very convenient. Quartz crystal, metal and wooden pendulums are available from the BSD, and gemstone pendulums can be had from any Mind Body and Spirit type shop. Some pendulums can be unscrewed to reveal a cavity which will hold a "witness" or sample of the substance being sought. This is helpful to some dowsers, though if you are trying to locate a US nuclear submarine (yes, it can be done) you may have a little difficulty in getting a piece of one as a witness. Experienced dowsers simply hold the image of their target in their minds; this works just as well as long as you don't let your mind wander.

These vary from very heavy beautifully polished brass rods up to 500 mm long to a bit of bent wire, but they all work the same way. Rods may be plain bent metal held in the hand so that the swing is controlled by the friction of the fingers, or they can be mounted in swivel handles which allow completely free movement. Some control is certainly useful in windy conditions or when walking over rough ground, but the swivel type give a more sensitive reading since they are not affected by your grasp. Folding angle rods are available which are more convenient to carry in your pocket. The rods are normally held one in each hand, with your elbows away from your sides, and your forearms horizontal, which allows the rods to move easily. Angle rods cross inwards or turn outwards for "yes" and "no" according to the way you program them, and though they can rotate like pendulums, their best function is for finding and following energy or water lines. They will cross or diverge when the line is reached, and the direction can easily be followed by seeing the rods remain parallel when over the line and watching them turn towards the line when you go off to one side. A single rod will give a yes or no by circling like a pendulum, and depths or distances can be dowsed by counting the number of revolutions. Angle rods can be fitted with sights or even a compass in order to give a bearing for plotting energy lines on a map, but in order to do this accurately it is necessary to use a GPS navigator and to have a competent knowledge of local and global compass magnetic deviation.

Probably the oldest dowsing tool, and very satisfying to use. In some way these traditional natural rods seem to create a relationship between the dowser and the earth which is not so clear when using man-made tools. Traditionally, hazel is considered the best wood for the job, since it is very flexible, grows in the right shape and is easily available in Europe. In theory, a rod cut from a tree in the area where you are going to dowse is the best, but it is not always easy to find a good rod locally, and a good rod is worth keeping if you find one. The larger and stronger rods last well, and are easier to hold than thin rods, but they can snap up and down sharply with painful results to your nose or more critical parts of your anatomy. Vee rods do have to be held in the correct way to function, and this needs a demonstration and some practice, as well as developing some unexpected muscles. The arms of the rod are held one in each hand with the point of the fork pointing straight ahead, and the rod will jump sharply up or down when energy or water lines are crossed. An expert dowser will know by the feel of the rods if the water is good, how strong the flow is and how deep it lies, as well as its seasonal flow, but such skill takes a long time to develop. Small plastic or wire rods work in the same way, and need less strength, but are not so satisfactory to use. Cut your own hazel rod from any hedge or coppice, but do not take young saplings - find a mature tree which will not miss a branch or two. It is important to get both arms of the rod the same thickness, otherwise they will not respond accurately.

Bobbers are simple short straight rods with a weight on the end which moves up and down or side to side, giving a simple "yes" or "no" answer to questions. Any straight stick, such as a walking stick, will dip over the target if it is held horizontally at the point of balance and allowed to move freely, though the response is not very sensitive. Wands are more sophisticated straight rods, longer and more flexible, slightly weighted with a crystal or brass tip. They can move up and down, side to side, circle right or left, move randomly or just vibrate and these movements can be programmed just as a pendulum is taught to give regular responses (this really means that you are programming your mind, but it sounds better to say that you are programming the dowsing tool) . The strength of the tip movement indicates the strength of the response, just as a pendulum does, but if the movement is too violent for comfort, the wand can be told to work at a lower power. Being very flexible they can follow very small changes in energy or water lines down to a few millimetres, and can even be used for map dowsing though this is not very comfortable. There is no particular way of holding a wand, though as with all dowsing tools, a very tight grasp tends to reduce the movement. Wands can be as short as 500 mm or as long as a metre, according to your taste and the purpose they are used for. They are very good for dowsing auras, and physical injuries, and some dowsers can transmit healing through them to the affected part. Telescopic wands are very useful as they will go in a pocket, though the movement is not quite so sensitive, but you can try using a car or radio aerial for the job.

There are numerous personal variations on two-handed metal or plastic rods in odd shapes, such as W shaped, S shaped, U shaped, Z shaped, X shaped or C shaped, and some dowsers prefer these as they are supposed to give a more subtle response. Each end of the rod is held in a hand and the twist of the rod conveys various signals to the dowser - you could try twisting some wire into odd figures and seeing if you get better results.

This is an American tool for dowsing auras. It has a bullet shaped head on a spring balanced jointed arm which is capable of very complex and subtle movements. There is quite a considerable literature on the use of the aurameter, and it really requires some tuition and a good deal of practice before reliable results can be obtained. Some healer dowsers swear by it, while other dowsers cannot get sensible answers from it at all. They are quite expensive - around $ 140 - so try to borrow one before spending money on something you cannot use successfully.

A late Victorian tool which was developed mainly to search for minerals. There are not many around, and they do not seem to be made now, though you may see one at a meeting if the proud owner brings it along to demonstrate. The Revealer is basically an angle rod, made in jointed sections with a set of soft springs strung from the top of the handle to the bottom. When using the Revealer, different samples of metals (or other substances) were held against the springs and the rod responded only if that substance was found. The whole outfit lives in a beautifully polished hardwood box. I have never used one, but they were very popular at the time, so that they probably work well.

Also known as "tool-less dowsing". This consists of using various parts of your body as dowsing tools to give a simple "yes" or "no" response. Some of the more usual methods are:

  • rubbing two fingers together - stick for "yes" and slip for "no" or the other way round.

  • blinking - one for "yes" and two for "no" or the other way round.

  • swaying back and forward - not a good idea in front of a policeman with a breathalyser.

  • swinging an arm like a pendulum, which gives you all the normal pendulum movements.

  • holding your hands out as though you were using angle rods - this works just like real rods.

  • holding your arms straight out with fingers touching - this works like a V rod but is tiring.
    if you are one of those people who can twitch their ears this will work well.

No doubt you will find many other tool-less methods of dowsing which suit your personal way of doing things, and eventually you may arrive at the perfect art of dowsing, when you merely have to think of the question in order to receive an answer. Few of us attain that level.

Gauss Meter: What is That Thing?

Electromagnetic fields (EMF's) are all around us. They exist in the power transmission and distribution lines outside our homes and throughout the household wiring in the house. In addition, EMFs are produced by the use of electronic devices found in the home, such as appliances, computers, televisions, electric blankets and clock radios.

Electrical and magnetic fields are invisible lines of force surrounding any electrical device. They are the result of sending alternating current (AC) through wires and appliances. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reviewed 50 epidemiological studies and hundreds of biological studies and acknowledge that low level electromagnetic fields may increase the risk of cancer. A general recommendation is "prudent avoidance" of exposures above 2-3 milliGauss. An EMF detection meter can help you to determine safe distances form electrical devices and wiring and what "hot spots" around your home should be avoided.

What Exactly is a Gauss Meter?
EMF Detectors are also known as Gauss meters. These meters measure Electro-Magnetic Fields. The meters are used to detect the presence of electro-magnetic energy in the atmosphere.

These meters are utilized to measure the levels of a variety of emissions from a variety of items in a given area. Using a Gauss Meter at regular intervals can help ensure that no emission levels are going over levels that are considered dangerous.

They can also give you and idea of which devices the emissions are coming from and whether they are particularly concentrated around specific devices. They can also help you to decide whether you should take steps to lower the emission levels of the device you are monitoring if the emissions you are measuring are health hazards.

The Gauss Meters will allow you to determine where the fields are strongest so that you can make an effort to avoid them if you are incapable of reducing them. They also can help you to determine where to distribute protection products to ensure that the electromagnetic emissions are decreased to the lowest possible level.

Check out the house or property you want to investigate by walking through the entire building with your Gauss meter and take readings. Walk through several times to ensure a good, accurate reading is received. Make notes of where electrical wiring and appliance are located.

What Are Some of the Uses of a Gauss Meter?
Move furniture away from hot spots and avoid exposure to EMF

Purchase Cellular phones that have low emissions

Purchase appliances and autos that have low emissions

Purchase homes that are not in high EMF areas near power lines

Show children a safe distance form the TV

Purchase computer monitors that are not high in radiation

Check to see if your microwave is leaking

Reduce computer freezes/crashes by placing it away from high spots

Detect if car engine is skipping a cylinder (which uses excess gas)

Detect if someone is using your WiFi connection (could steal your info)

Improve WiFi reception in your home by finding best places to locate unit

Detect plumbing at home that is carrying current due to improper wiring

Detect improper wiring at home (reduce risk of electrocution, fire, shorts)

Cancer patients and parents can avoid electromagnetic fields at home and work

Conduct EMF surveys for home owners

Help home purchasers avoid homes high in EMF

Find metal objects in the beach (treasure hunter)

Detect computer drives which will fail (EMF noisy drives)

An Affordable Gauss Meter
Dr. Gauss is an accurate, easy-to-use, and affordable Gaussmeter developed to allow you to perform your own EMF survey. It detects and measures EMFs (electromagnetic fields) produced by electrical currents found in and around the home, at school, in the workplace and other electrical transmission areas. It is especially important to check for EMF emissions in and around areas and electrical devices that you and your family are exposed to regularly

The Dr. Gauss meter, is a moderately-priced, hand-held EMF detector, costing around $35. This little meter measures the level of ELF magnetic field radiation from power lines, computers, kitchen appliances, and more! The easy to read scale, unique built-in audio signal and auto shut off make it simple to use and a great way to find hidden sources of ELF frequency magnetic fields.

Most experts agree that chronic exposure to more than 2.5 milli-Gauss is inadvisable. This meter will show you which areas are above or below 2.5 milli-Gauss in the 50 - 60 Hz frequency range.

Hand-held, lightweight and durable, with two easy to read scales (0-1 mG, & 0-10 mG), and dramatic audio signal. Our favorite meter for demonstrating the presence of dangerous EMFs to others and paranormal work. Requires one 9V battery (not included). Calibrated at 50-60 Hz.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 15: AC vs DC


  • Appliances that operate either with batteries or by plugging into the household wiring usually come equipped with an AC/DC switch.
  • If switched to AC, the appliance uses electric power that flows back and forth or "alternates" at a (U.S.) rate of 60 cycles per second (60 hertz, or Hz).
  • If DC ("direct current") is chosen, current flows one way from the batteries to the appliance.
  • AC fields induce weak electric currents in conducting objects, including humans
  • DC fields do not, unless the DC field changes in space or time relative to the person in the field.
  • In most practical situations, a battery-operated appliance is unlikely to induce electric current in the person using the appliance.
  • Induced currents from AC fields have been a focus for research on how EMFs could affect human health.

And here is the rest of it.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 14: EMFs Defined


EMF (or ElectroMagnetic Field) is a broad term which includes electric fields generated by charged particles, magnetic fields generated by charged particles in motion, and radiated fields such as TV, radio, and microwaves.

Electric fields are measured in units of volts per meter or V/m.

Magnetic fields are measured in milli-Gauss or mG.

The field is always strongest near the source and diminishes as you move away from the source.

These energies have the ability to influence particles at great distances.

Example: the radiation from a radio tower influences the atoms within a distant radio antenna, allowing it to pick up the signal.

Despite the many wonderful conveniences of electrical technology, the effects of EMF on biological tissue remains the most controversial aspect of the EMF issue with virtually all scientists agreeing that more research is necessary to determine safe or dangerous levels.

Iron, necessary for healthy blood and stored in the brain, is highly effected by EMF.

The permeability of the cell membrane of our nerves, blood vessels, skin, and other organs is effected.

The intricate DNA of the chromosomes has been shown to be effected by EMFs as well.

Throughout our bodies, every biochemical process involves precisely choreographed movement of EMF-sensitive atoms, molecules, and ions.

Power lines, electrical wiring, and appliances all produce electric and magnetic fields.

EMFs are invisible lines of force that surround any electrical device.

Electrical and magnetic fields have different properties and possibly different ways of causing biological effects.

Note that while electric fields are easily shielded or weakened by conducting objects (e.g., trees, buildings, and human skin), magnetic fields weaken with increasing distance from the source.

Even though electric and magnetic fields are present around appliances and power lines, more recent interest and research have focused on potential health effects of magnetic fields. This is because epidemiological studies have found associations between increased cancer risk and power-line configurations,

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 13


ENERGETIC STRESSES, like the ones listed below, can trigger an existing condition but does not generally cause an illness. If you are ill, feeling, discomfort or know that something is not right, a space clearing will generally bring relief and allow your body to heal. When a space clearing is done in conjunction with professional medical care you are more likely to return to a state of health.

  • Earth Influences tend to be in the range of Earth related electro magnetic influences such as underground streams (black streams), fissures, Hartman/Curry lines, Ley lines, magnetic and earth grids as well as energy power points

  • Manmade Mechanicals include power sources built by mankind: power and telephone lines, transformers, cell and microwave towers, computers and household appliances.

  • Dimensional Influences can be etheric structures, beings, thought forms and energetic that exist in other places than in the third dimensional world we live in.

  • Other Influences can be human generated through human emotional outbursts or events that leave clusters of distorted energy patterns behind. These patterns stay forever until they are cleared.

    Distortions can individually cause problems, but when one or more are combined with other distortions can cause unpleasant physical and emotional problems for people that live, work or play in the area. . And here is the rest of it.


  • A noticeable increase in energy and vitality

  • Improved ability to communication clearly

  • A better quality of sleeping and relaxation

  • Strengthened immune system

  • Stronger and healthier plants and trees

  • Fewer emotional upsets and arguments

  • Healthier, more peaceful animals and pets

  • More birds and butterflies

  • Fewer insects on the property

  • A feeling of peace and tranquility

Tools & Techniques: Space Clearing

You can learn simple techniques to clear your own space in workshops or directly from your guides. There are also a number of good books on the subject such as Denise Linn's "Sacred Space".

Space clearing can be a profound and highly effective ceremony when performed by an experienced practitioner, which is recommended where longstanding imprints and entities are involved.

If I am performing a Clearing & Blessing, I use a combination of tools and techniques depending upon the situation I find. Before hand I will talk with the client to find out what is needed to be done and will conduct an assesment with them. An individualized ceremony is created specificially for them. The duration of the actual clearing and blessing ceremony will take a minimum of one hour, but generally last longer. Much of this is dependent on the depth and needs of that particular environment and the homeowner.
Some of the most important steps are:

Grounding & Connection
To start the ceremony, I ground and center myself, then connect with my guides, angels or devas. I may do any number of things to begin a ceremony to anchor a high vibrational connection to the space. I generally begin the ceremony outside, working around the permeter of the property, then move indoors.

Energy Sensing
I walk through the home to sense the various energetic imprints on walls, corners, objects, rooms. The information gathered also provides insight into the emotional well-being of the people who now live there and how they could improve their environment for greater harmony. This might mean moving some furniture or placing objects in different locations.

As I walk through the home I will often be clapping my hands to loosen the energetic imprint. Clapping frees up stuck energy and starts the flow.

Sacred Smoke and Clearing Sprays
I burn sacred sage and fan the smoke through the house, especially in corners, cupboards, under tables, and in places where heavy energy has collected. Sage is a powerful purifier. I may also use a clearing spray made from essential oils, crystal and flower essences to dissipate stagnant energy.

Clearing Entity Attachments
I follow directions from my guides and angels to release earth-bound entities, and thought

Sacred Sounds
I may also include the use of my Tibetan singing bowl, drum or use my voice to tone. The sound reverberates throughout the space. Particles of stagnant energy, astral fragments or perverse energy cannot withstand these vibrations. All are shattered and the frequency of the energy is increased to a higher vibration similar to that of a ceremonial temple.

Energising Spray
After the clearing I may use another energizing spray to fill the space with revitalising energy. The formula formula would vary depending on the situation.

Sealing with Angelic Light and Sacred Symbols
The energy in the home is now bright and sparkling and can to be reinforced by working with angels to seal the space with colour, light and sacred symbols. If a blessing is being done I work with my client to formulate their intentions, wishes and dreams and this is included in the last part of the ceremony, ensuring the imprint of the home is now one of harmony and love.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 12


Space Clearing refers to the art of cleansing spaces of energetic debris and then replacing it with balanced energy. You can really call it is energy housekeeping.

Just like we need to regularly clean our houses of dust and grime that accumulates through daily use, we also need to cleanse ourselves and environments of unwanted energetic accumulations. These accumulations will build-up daily, and over time result in layer upon layer of accrued energy that may not be balanced and harmonious.
First we remove unwanted vibrations and stagnant energy to create a void, which must itself be filled with positive energy or more heavy energy would take its place. Positive energy is mobile and expansive and attracts energy of a similar vibration (like attracts like), often in the form of helpful people and opportunities, experiences, guides and angels.

This is why revitalizing the energy in our home or business has a corresponding effect on our life or work. By changing the energy in our space we create a fresh beginning and can expect an improvement in every aspect of our lives: health, relationships, finances and spiritual well being.

Most people respond to the energy of a space on an unconscious level, but as we grow and awaken spiritually we become more sensitive to the differences in energetic vibrations. Places that once felt acceptable may now feel discordant and we no longer feel comfortable within an environment unless it is filled with positive, expansive energy.

It is crucial that we learn to clear the spaces around us of negative energy. Not only for our own well-being but to assist in raising the energy of the planet as it shifts from third dimensional reality into fifth. We can help dismantle the remnants of astral energy that have over-shadowed our planet's spiritual evolution, and enter the new era with great light.

What do we mean by "negative energy"?
Energy is neither positive nor negative, good nor bad. This polarity is an illusion of duality consciousness; all energy comes from Divine Source and all is in Divine Order when energy can flow and change.

The problems arise when energy is trapped or becomes stuck in inappropriate dimensions. Stagnant astral energy is of a low vibrational rate and is discordant with energy of a higher vibration. Light workers assist by freeing the heavy accumulated energy and returning it to Source for reprocessing.

What are Energy Imprints?
An Energy Imprint is an energy pattern that has been left behind in a building, natural site or aura after the event. Everything that happens in a building, all actions and emotions, personal and political events, public and private histories, are recorded in its walls, spaces and furnishings.

Recall a situation where you walked into a room where an argument had just taken place. We sometimes describe it by saying, "You could have cut the air with a knife". The energetic release during the argument was so intense that the energy left behind was almost physically tangible.

Every argument, trauma or illness leaves a deep energetic imprint. These imprints do not fade unless cleared by intention. Imprints can be found in possessions and clutter, particularly antiques that change ownership many times. An energetic imprint may be left over from the previous inhabitants of a building, from years, centuries or even eons ago. Many energetic imprints have their source in the astral fragments released when a person dies, and appear as "ghosts". As long as there is still old, stagnant energy in a space it cannot sparkle with fresh energy and light.

What are Emotional Residues?
Every living thing, every emotion, event, or action, carries an energy vibration that leaves an imprint in the etheric layers almost like a memory. If the energy has been the result of anger, fear, trauma or depression, the imprint will be of a low vibration and the building will feel heavy, sad, uncomfortable or unpleasant.

As feelings, thoughts and words are exchanged between people, emotional residue accrues and some people will be especially vulnerable to its effects. Individuals who have strong emotions, repressed negative feelings or are easily stressed, are like magnets in attracting this negative energy to them. Their magnetic field - already struggling - becomes even more clogged with emotional debris.

When we spend time in a place that has accumulated negative energy our own vibrational rate will be challenged and drained. Over time our moods, health, relationships and work will begin to suffer. We might move into a home where the people before went through a painful divorce and before we realise we begin to pick up this energy and start to have difficulties in our own relationship. If previous occupants had financial problems, illness or stress, these negative energies remain in the space and can in a sense be "passed on". Patterns get deeply imprinted and can cause many generations of occupants to experience similar problems.

What Do Emotional Imprints Feel Like?

Emotional Imprints are usually felt in the kinaesthetic changes in our bodies as we move from room to room through a building. Though we rarely stop to think about it, we encounter subtle changes of this type between different rooms in practically every house we enter, but only when they are dramatic and overwhelming do we comment. If a room in the house has been used for a long unhappy convalescence there may be residual feelings of melancholy or coldness in the room. Powerful emotional imprints are left behind as the result of death, suicide, cruelty, arguments, deep depression or any other intense emotional outpouring.

In some instances we might locate such an overwhelming atmosphere in a specific item of clothing, jewellery, ornament or furniture. Sometimes these "charged" items generate discomfort in a room, or indeed throughout the whole house, as a direct result of their own held memories of the past. Most certainly, we should cherish our mementos, treasuring them for the happy memories they bring, but sometimes an item can be carrying an equally strong negative unhappy vibration that needs to be cleansed first.

What is an Entity?
An Entity is a non-physical being who is parasitic to its host. Just as our physical body can have intestinal parasites so our subtle bodies (aura) and environment can be parasitised by non-physical energies and presences. An entity is actually a fragment of non-physical energy - with some consciousness of its own -which drains energy from its human host.

Ghosts are energy fragments of deceased beings that are trapped on the earth plane, usually at a particular site. This occurrence is commonly known as a haunting. Astral fragments come from the shattering of the consciousness of people during death, especially where the death was sudden or traumatic.

What does an Entity Attachment Feel Like?
Entity attachments almost always make their presence known by experiences of dramatic changes in emotions or by strange phenomena. A sudden cold breeze may appear from nowhere, or a particular room feels icy cold and damp. We have all walked into places where we felt unwelcomed and immediately wanted to leave. We might have the sense there is someone watching us. We may glimpse something out of the corner of our eye. Sometimes we avoid a room or corner in our homes because it seems to repel us. Things may go "bump" in the night. There might be unexplained odours, or we might actually feel something touch or brush against us.

If you experience entity presence, do not feed them with fear. Entities are attracted to fear because human emotional energy is their food. Most children are intuitively sensitive to spirits. A child who is afraid of the dark can attract all manner of negative entities which then increase the child's fear so they can feed on that emotion

How Does One Clear an Entity Attachment?
Just as there are a myriad of different manifestations here, there are also many different sources of entity disturbances including discarnate soul fragments, thoughtforms and elementals. Advanced clairvoyant skills can be employed to determine what entities are present in a house and the best course of action for their release.

Healers use a variety of methods based in their own experience, abilities and guidance. This work must be handled with care, integrity and genuine reverence. It is never sufficient to imitate the rituals of another healer or tradition, no matter how impressive they might seem.

I work with spirit guides and helpers, and refuse all communication that originates on the astral plane. In so doing I avoid the heavy energy and misguidance associated with astral entities. It is not necessary to converse with misplaced entities to help them. My guides, their guides, and angelic beings act as intermediaries. I offer the entity the choice of moving to the Light or returning to Source, but they cannot by Universal Law remain attached to the person or place they haunt.

One must be firm and loving with this direction. Over the years I have had experience with many entities who are stubborn and initially resist the clearing. They are fearful of leaving what is familiar no matter how dark and unpleasant their current existence. Sometimes they feel guilty for misdeeds in their lifetime and think they will go to hell in the after life. Deceased people who had strict Christian beliefs seem to need a lot of convincing that God is all-loving and all-forgiving, and that there is no punishment after death.

Many entities are merely the previous tenants who do not know they are dead and are frustrated that new people have moved into their home. There is a certain poignancy to their situation. Recently I came upon an elderly woman who knew she was dead but was waiting for people to come and take her to her own funeral - which was forty years earlier! There she was, dressed in her Sunday best, sitting on the side of her bed, waiting for someone to pick her up in a car. When her guides brought her son - also passed over - to collect her, she was very happy to see him and go with him to the Light.

Where earth-bound beings and soul fragments are involved the healer facilitates by raising awareness and the energetic vibration at the site. The entity's transition itself takes place with love and grace. Often the guides bring a relative or friend already in spirit that the entity can trust to help them make their transition. Each situation is entirely unique; we must first seek understanding from our guidance and act accordingly. Many times we may be prompted to do things that seem unusual or irrelevant in the rational sense, but bring results.

What are Residual Thoughtforms?
Residual Thoughtforms are the psychic disturbances or imprints that can be created by strong beliefs held by people who once dwelt in a place. Thoughtforms can appear as monster-like entities, legendary creatures, deities, demons or other religious terrors. While they do not actually have souls they do have a life of their own since they were created and fed by the mental energy of groups of people who once worshipped them. When these thoughtforms are no longer supported by ritual worship, they try to feed off the energy of anyone in their vicinity. We can be especially vulnerable to thoughtforms when we open psychically during meditation or prayer, as these are also sacred rituals.

Tools and Techniques: Bovis Scale

When doing geopathic stress clearing work it is important to have a toolbox of techniques and tools that can assist you in the process. Here we are going to discuss one very important, yet easy to use tool called the Bovis Scale

It is a Life Force Index named after a French physicist Antoine Bovis, created it in the 1930's while scale doing research among the Great Pyramids of Egypt. This scale measures "Natural Earth Energy", ranges from zero to infinity.

The Bovis Scale quantifies or measures how positively or negatively charged a substance is. For living organisms, the key reference point on the scale is found at 6,500 Bovis energy units.


The charge is in the NEGATIVE range, or life-detracting

The energy gradually becomes more POSITIVE, or life-enhancing

Is found between 8,000 to 10,000 Bovis, or slightly positive

Creates energy in the 7,000 to 18,000 range This energy is also referred to as "Biophotons", which are light particles invisible to our eyes. This positive energy is necessary to the maintenance on Earth

Scientists have discovered a direct correlation between the Bovis scale and the direction of spin displayed by an atom or molecule. Atoms registering in the negative Bovis range will spin to the right, or clockwise. Atoms in the positive Bovis range spin, to the left, or counterclockwise. Examples found in nature of this spin properly include cellular DNA, which is a left-turning spiral: in contrast, cancer cells are in a right-turning spiral.


8500: Is person’s top, completely recharge
7500: Person in good health
6500: A tired person
6000: Very tired person, it is final limit, and under this point you are sick
Between 8500 and 9000 : A person is able to heal people using their hands
Above 9000: Able to tap into psychic abitity, medium power
Above 10 000: The good Cosmo -telluric place are often
6500 BOVIS: Human Being
6500 to 16000 BOVIS: Chakras
11000 BOVIS : Church Bell
14000 BOVIS : Tibetan Temple
1000000 BOVIS: Swastika (Any Size)

Note: Reminder, if you are determining a Bovis Scale Reading on another individual, first ask them for permission.

This is the Bovis Meter Chart that Scott and I use when we are doing energy clearing. To use simply dowse with a pendulum. We take a general reading of the property or location before beginning the work and then once the work is done. Specific areas can be done as well. For example, inside of a home, each room can have its own reading. You can also go back into the history of a particular location. For example: Show me the Bovis Reading for this property, state the specific location, in the year XXXX.

Recently when working with a home owner, I was trying to determine the time frame from which the property was showing low Bovis Readings. I started at the year 1900 and received a positive reading. For whatever reason, I then jumped to 1960 and barely was able to get a response, the value coming in at less then 1000 Bovis. As I was questioning the homeowner, it came out that the property behind her home, a farm, was identified as a Superfund Site, around 1960. This is a very simple example showing how information can be pinponted more specifically.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 11


  • Are naturally occurring, beneficial electromagnetic waves

  • Oscillate between the Earth and certain layers of the atmosphere

  • First identified in 1952 by Professor W.O. Schumann, a German scientist

  • Are very long waves of extremely, low frequency

  • Are present everywhere in the atmosphere on this planet

  • Waves have similar frequency as brain waves and follow a similar daily pattern

  • It has been suggested that these waves help regulate the body's internal clock, thus affecting sleep patterns, hormonal secretions, the menstrual cycle in women and so on

More information on Schumann Waves here.

  • Defined as underground water veins or streams that give off noxious radiations

  • Can be harmful to life above them

  • Can be conceptualized as earth meridians whose flow has become stagnant or polluted, giving rise to Negative Energy

  • Harmful radiation rises in a vertical plane from the underground stream to the earth's surface

  • Have been dowsed to be anywhere from 1 ft to 900ft deep and from 1ft to 300ft wide

  • The two edge lines and the center line dowse as the strongest, sharpest potentially most dangerous places on the stream for habitual exposure

  • Have been known to change their habitual course, especially after earthquakes and droughts

  • Are known to be stronger at midday, mid-summer, full moon, and during periods of heightened solar flare (sunspot) activity

  • Have been dowsed as inactive in the Canadian tundra during the frozen winter

  • Are also known to be associated with higher levels of ionising radiation, lightning strikes and other atmospheric phenomena

    And here is the rest of it.

  • Are straight over-ground energy lines

  • Mirror larger underground currents, including underground rivers

  • Carry positively charged Yang energy

  • Are the counterpart to the negatively charged Yin energy of underground water

  • Are charged with Heavenly Consciousness, act as a conduit for spiritual energies

  • Often referred to as "spirit lines"

  • Have been recognized by all cultures as sacred Have often been chosen for the location of sacred structures and sites

  • These straight spirit paths are found everywhere in the world

  • Frequently define the processional routes to major palaces, temples and cathedrals

  • Energy of lines is appropriate for sacred sites and ritual ceremony

  • Lines are less suited for secular living

  • Houses built on them can become a thoroughfare for all manner of disturbances, including spirits.

    And here is the rest of it.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 8


  • Are a global grid network of electrically charged lines of natural origin

  • Lines run diagonally to the poles (true or magnetic?)

  • Run northeast to southeast and northwest to southwest

  • Were first discovered by Dr. Manfred Curry and Dr. Wittmann in the 1970’s

  • Approximately 3 meters apart and 15 cm wide but can vary

  • Lines themselves are not seen as a problem, only where they intersect

  • Lines are electrically chargedIntersecting points are either double ++, double -- or + -

  • Double Negative crossings associated with sleep disturbance, depression, nervous reactions, inflammations and rheumatic disease

  • Double Positive crossings encourage enhanced cell enlargement, could lead to a proliferation of cells, possible cancerous growth

  • Considered more harmful than equivalent Hartmann knots

  • Overlay the Hartmann Grid

  • Known as Cancer Lines in Europe

Note: It has been suggested that both the Curry grids and Hartmann Net are earthing grids for cosmic rays that constantly bombard the Earth, and that they can be distorted by other things, such as geological fault lines and underground mining. It is also possible to have spots where the Curry and Hartmann lines cross, causing further potential problems. These spots are generally seen to be more detrimental than a single crossing within the Curry or Hartmann system.

And here is the rest of it.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 7


  • Consists of naturally occurring charged lines, running North-South and East-West

  • Named after Dr. Ernst Hartmann, who first described it soon after the second world war

  • Alternate lines are usually positively and negatively charged

  • Where lines intersect it is possible to have double ++ charges, double - - charges, or + - charge

  • The intersections are seen as a source of potential problems

  • Appears as a structure of radiations rising vertically from the ground like invisible, radioactive walls, each 21 centimetres (9 inches) wide

  • The grid is magnetically orientated

  • North to South lines appear at intervals of 2 meters (6 feet 6 inches)

  • East to West lines appear at intervals of 2.5 meters (8 feet)

  • Between these geometric lines lies a neutral zone, an unperturbed micro-climate

  • This network penetrates everywhere: over open ground or through dwellings

  • Have been defined using the Chinese terms of Yin and Yang

  • The Yin (North-South lines) is a cold energy which acts slowly, corresponds to winter, is related to cramps, humidity and all forms of rheumatism

  • The Yang (East-West lines) is a hot, dry rapidly acting energy. It is related to fire and is linked to inflammations

  • The points formed by the intersection of these lines, whether positive or negative, are dynamic environments sensitive to the rhythms of the hours and the seasons

  • Sleeping over these knots can cause nervous disturbances, headaches, cramps and rheumatic illnesses

  • Where intersections coincide with black streams the effect is greatly increased Lines intensity increases at night when there are less free ions

  • During an earthquake the Hartmann network becomes twisted and distorted, but is restored to symmetry half an hour later

Note: It has been suggested that both the Curry grids and Hartmann Net are earthing grids for cosmic rays that constantly bombard the Earth, and that they can be distorted by other things, such as geological fault lines and underground mining. It is also possible to have spots where the Curry and Hartmann lines cross, causing further potential problems. These spots are generally seen to be more detrimental than a single crossing within the Curry or Hartmann system

  • Can be thought of as a web that holds or links the Earth together

  • Is affected by - electricity, magnetism, light, color, heat, sound and matter

  • Operates through certain geometrical patterns that follow a specific symmetry

  • The grids meet at various intersecting points forming a kind of matrix

  • Is equivalent to the acupressure points on our bodies

  • Grid points can be found at some of the strongest power places on the planet.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 5:


When Scott and I first started to learn about geopathic stress, we were suddenly thrown into a world of lines...all sorts of lines...people would talk about these lines, like we really knew what they were referring to. We really didn't have a clue.

For me, it was overwhelming. New specific vocabulary, that required the ability to visualize the invisible world. This was tough for me. I can remember when we were doing house renovations and the contractor was frustrated trying to explain to me what he was talking about ‘cause I can’t visualize that kind of thing easily. I am more of the feeling type, I can feel or sense energy easier than creating a visual concept.

Anyway, in this tutorial I will introduce you to the various kinds of lines you will hear about when entering into the world of geopathic stress. From time to time I will come back and update this section more completely. Check back for updated.

Tools And Techniques: Dowsing 101

Have you always been interested in the magical ability of dowsers? Wishing you could do the same thing yourself? Well the bad news is---there is no magic; the good news is---we all can dowse. Now how well you dowse, that degree of skill and ability is entirely up to you.

Just like any other skill in life, we become competent with practice, we become good with more practice plus understanding, and finally we become the master with more practice, understanding, and willingness to allow our intuitive abilities to shine through the veil we hide behind.

The purpose of this article is to outline the basics so you can begin your adventure into the world of dowsing as soon as you have finished reading. There are any number of tools that can be used to dowse, such as L-rods, Y-rods, bobbers, and pendulums. For the master dowser, tools begin to be unnecessary and a large number of tool-less dowsing techniques are employed. I will be discussing learning to dowse using the pendulum, simply because this is my tool of choice.

The First Thing You Need is a Pendulum
You can purchase one from a store or online, but if a simple tool is all you need to get started, begin by looking around your house. Any string or chain can be used which has something suspended from the end of it. I have made hundreds of pendulums in the past ten years using gemstones, crystals, stones and beads but my favorite pendulum is the necklace I wear. It is a simple quartz crystal pendant on a silver chain. It is my signature jewelry piece, not wearing it feels like walking around without underwear. So it is always with me. The trouble with my other pendulums was that I wouldn’t always have it with me then I would want to dowse something and ughhh! no pendulum. The necklace eliminates the problem. You can use a needle on a thread, a key on a keychain, a screw looped through a string. The possibilities are limited my your imagination.

Now We are Ready to Get Started:

Step 1: Get Clear
Empty your mind of any busyness that is cluttering it up…pretend there is a port hole on the side of your head… open it up, allow the thoughts, chatter, mind-mess to drain out. If you have some trouble with this, concentrate on your breathing…breathe in open space, breathe out stuffiness, continue until you feel very clear headed.

Step 2: Get Connected & Grounded
Get connected to your higher self, this is a continuation of step one, once the gunk is moved out, our higher energies have space. Use whatever means gets you into this space. I like to center myself and ask to be in perfect alignment with my higher self, by focusing my attention on the crown chakra at the top of the head, while imagining a strong golden cord between me and the Source. I then ground myself. This is done simply by visualizing strong roots growing out of the bottom of my feet, moving deeply into Mother Earth. Here I am provided with a two way flow…if I need to discharge energy it can flow into the earth to be transmuted, if I need to gather earth energy, it is absorbed upward.

Step 3: Find Your Yes & No
In order to dowse, you must know what your Yes response will look like as well as your No response. Holding your pendulum chain or string comfortably in one hand, position your elbow on a table or solid foundation. Give the direction: “Please Show Me My Yes Response”. Then let go of any expectation and wait. It may take a minute to have your pendulum show a reaction, although most people can get a response much quicker, within 10 -15 seconds on their first attempt. The swing may be a vertical or horizontal line, a clockwise or counterclockwise swing, or a diagonal to the left or right. Record what your Yes Response was.

Next give the direction: “Please Show Me My No Response.” Generally it will be the opposite of your Yes response. If your received a horizontal line for a Yes, then in most cases you will receive a vertical line for a No. This is not always the case but it is more frequently than not. Record what your No response was.

On the first few attempts the response may be a weak signal. If this is the case, you can strengthen the response just by asking. For example, when you direct “Show Me My Yes” and you get a weak (slow moving/barely moving) horizontal line, follow with the direction “Show Me a Stronger Yes”. The pendulum will move faster or quicker, in a more definite or defined way. A few times practicing this will generally result in strong swings from then on.

Step 4: Questions to Ask Before Dowsing
Dowers practice asking 3 questions before beginning. May I? Can I? Should I? The questions refer to: May I dowse for this information? Can I- do I have the ability/experience to dowse for this information? Should I dowse for this information or is it best to leave it alone?

Step 5: Some More about Your Questions
The subconscious mind is very literal and does not make assumptions…..

Be specific and clear.

Yes or No questions only! Seems basic but sometimes we forget.

Ask only one question at a time. This means: NO COMPOUND QUESTIONS.

Empty your mind, be curious to know the answer,don’t use this system to validate something you want to prove

Along the same lines, do not ask questions you have a vested interest in or are
highly emotional and you can not detach from—have someone else dowse for you.

After you ask the question- let go and let the response come through you.

Step 6: Begin to Dowse
Start dowsing very simple things until you get comfortable. Here are a few examples of what you can do:

1. You can get a partner to work with and have 2 apples in the room,one organic and one conventional. Hang your pendulum over the first apple, asking “Is this apple organic?” Your partner will know the answer and confirm your response for you.

2. Get a deck of cards, pull out equal numbers of red cards and black cards. Hang the pendulum over the card, ask “Is this card red?” Check your response. Shuffle the cards and continue practicing.

3. Have your partner sit in a chair, asking them to think of either a happy thought or a fearful thought, but not tell you what they are thinking. Hold the pendulum over their head and ask, “Is _____ thinking a happy thought?”

Other Important Things to Remember

As with any new skill: Practice! Practice! Practice! is necessary to achieve accuracy.

When you get tired—stop, period! It affects the accuracy of results.

Perform ethically.

If asking about the future, remember there is not one possible answer but several potentialities, all based on the current set of circumstances.

So now that you have some of the basics, go ahead, off with you! Have fun dowsing.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial: 3


Personal Signs and Symptoms of Geopathic Stress

There are a number of pointers which may suggest the presence of Geopathic Stress by its effect on both living and non-living organisms. The following clues may suggest that a person is affected by Geopathic Stress:

  1. They have a serious illness such as cancer or multiple sclerosis

  2. They have any illness which doesn ot clear up, despite good treatment.

  3. They have tried a number of different therapies without success.

  4. Their condition improves, only to return after a short period of time.

  5. They feel better or the condition improves when away from home, like on vacation.

  6. They became ill shortly after moving into the home.

  7. They live in a house which doesn't "feel right" energetically.

  8. They wake up in the morning feeling drained, unrefreshed or worse than before bed.

Areas around the home, both inside and out can also show indications that the property is being affected in a negative way by earth energies. Some of the sings to look for are listed below.

  1. There may be problems with mold in the house.

  2. There is alot of lichen or moss growing on the roof, walls, or lawn, as geopathic stress encourages the gowth of these.

  3. There may be problems with ants, wasps or bees. Most animals avoid geopathic stress. Those that avoid it include dogs, cows, and horses.Some are attracted to int these include ants, wasps, bees and oddly enough cats. Numerous ants nests indicate GS too and big ones we are often found on crossings of underground streams, while ant paths often follow streams too.

  4. The presence of cracks in walls, driveways, paving stones, curbs, and roads. These may indicate the presence of a geological faultline.

  5. Recurring mechanical and elecrtrical breakdowns...appliances that need continual replacement or areas that have been repaired that need to be done over and over again.

  6. High accident locations on highways have also been correlated with geopathic stress activity.

  7. The presence of trees with cancer (large knobby growths on the trunk) or trees whose trunks have split in two.

  8. Gaps in hedges or shrubs, these may indicate the position of a line of geopathic stress crossing the hedge.

  9. Lightning-struck trees, infertile fruit trees, and strangely twisted trees are clues

  10. Lawns will often betray bare patches, and begetable gardens will reveal stunted or mutated growth.

  11. Close neighbors may also be in poor health.

  12. The presences of nearby springs and wells.

  13. Previous occupants of the house have also been ill.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial: 2

Geopathic stress is the effect of detrimental earth radiation and electromagnetic radiation on the health of your body, the environment, or other living and non-living organisms.

The earth has a natural magnetic field; it acts as though it has a large magnet at the center. The rotation of the earth creates electrical currents in the molten metals found within its core, thereby producing a magnetic field. Human beings have evolved with this background magnetic field; they are accustomed to living within its presence.

Geopathic stress occurs when the Earth's magnetic field is disturbed, either naturally or artificially, and the background field we normally experience is changed. This can happen when the natural radiations which rise up through the earth are distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by subterranean running water, sewers, drains, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities.

Natural radiations disturbed in this way can become harmful to humans. Mining can cause man-made disturbances to the earth's magnetic field, foundations for tall buildings, quarrying, underground transport systems, and public utilities (water, sewage, and so on).

Geopathic stress is not only electromagnetic in origin. Geopathic stress can be caused by energies emanating from the earth vibrating at a level beyond the electromagnetic spectrum currently recognized and detected by conventional science and technology.

These energies are often referred to as earth energies and can be bad, good, or neutral. Earth energies have many different features but most problems are caused by underground water streams and straight energy lines often referred to as Ley Lines, Curry Grind Lines and Hartmann Grid Lines.

Curry lines were discovered by Dr. Manfred Curry and Dr. Wittmann as a global grid network. As was the Hartmann global grid network discovered by Dr. Ernest Hartmann. It is mainly the crossing points on the Curry or Hartmann lines that cause health problems. Any feature which affects the earth's natural magnetic field will most likely also effect the earth energies as these are linked in some way.

And here is the rest of it.

Geopathic Stress Tutorial 1

Beyond "Granola" Turf Management

Earth energies could be affecting our personal and turf health

Article By Scott Anderson, Published in Turf Net, January 2007 Scott is a golf course superintendent for a private club outside of the Philadelphia area. His article was published in Turf Net, an online a golf course newsletter.

I first came across the term geopathic stress (GS) about a year ago as I was investigating the effects of special copper rings with mysterious energies. It was difficult for me to comprehend the invisible distorted earth energies that cause geopathic stress, and even harder to believe they could affect the health of humans, plants, and animals to the degree I am now convinced they do. Hopefully this brief introduction will stimulate enough interest for some of you to investigate this intriguing subject. Compare it to gravity, another unseen force but one generally accepted as real. We are aware of the effects even though we cannot see it or hold it in our hands. I urge you to suspend disbelief at first glance.

What is geopathic stress? The term geopathic comes from two Greek words, geo meaning of the Earth and pathos meaning suffering or disease. GS is a pseudoscientific theory (or to some, a paranormal belief) that the wavelengths of inner earth energies are disrupted in some places as they rise to the earth’s surface. When this natural earth energy (which normally vibrates at a very low 8 Hz) encounters weak electromagnetic fields around underground water veins, mineral deposits, radiation sources, caves or fault lines near the surface, stress lines vibrating at up to 250 Hz can be created.

Living organisms have evolved and adapted to the natural, undisturbed 8 Hz earth energies, and now flourish when bathed in them. The abnormally high wavelengths of the altered earth energies, however, create areas of geopathic stress which can be detrimental to the health and well-being of susceptible organisms.

For humans, this may manifest itself at the very least as a feeling of unease or "bad karma" when encountering an area of geopathic stress. Many debilitating diseases (including cancer, asthma, SIDS, depression, insomnia, birth defects, hyperactivity in children, depression, premature births and heart problems) have been associated with long-term exposure to geopathic stress. It is important to note that GS does not cause these illnesses, but rather impairs the ability of our immune systems to combat them. Traditional medical approaches often improve in effectiveness once the patient is removed from an area of geopathic stress.

According to Rolf Gordon, author of Are You Sleeping In A Safe Place?, "the only common factor in most serious and long term illnesses and psychological conditions" is geopathic stress.

Geopathic stress has also been indicated as a contributor to stressed interpersonal relationships, impaired plant health (including plants that flower but never bear fruit), and increased activity of molds and mildews. The presence of certain plants can actually indicate an area of GS.

Early work with geopathic stress dates back to the 1920s in Germany. Cancer rates were shown to be higher in the vicinity of water veins, which are running streams located 150 to 300 feet underground. These underground streams are one of the main factors in distorting otherwise healthy earth energies.

Ancient civilizations and Native American Indians were in tune with these energies, tending to congregate in areas without geopathic stress (now often known as sacred sites) and employing techniques such as burying crystals in line with the directional flow of the GS to divert them. Today, very simple methods of using copper clad iron, brass, stainless steel or copper wires are employed to divert or neutralize these lines from homes and businesses — and even golf courses.
Although knowledge in this field is limited, the effects are not. In addition to the illnesses previously mentioned, GS can actually crack blacktop, concrete sidewalks, foundations, and rock formations. Experts believe that these negative energies are increasing in strength due to man’s physical disturbance of the earth (mining, foundations for tall buildings), pollution, and especially "electromagnetic smog" from transformers and cell phones.

Personal Experience
My personal experience with geopathic stress began when I learned how to dowse with L-rods. Dowsing, or water-witching, is a skill that dates back thousands of years, and is usually associated with finding areas of increased energy such underground water — previously using Y-sticks but now either L-rods or pendulums. Monitoring the movements and behavior of these dowsing tools reveals the places in which geopathic stress is strongest.

Dowsing is generally considered a neuro-muscular response to one’s guidance through intuition, amplifying small but otherwise imperceptible movements of the hands.

Initially, I didn’t realize how important this relatively simple skill would become to me. Since then I’ve trained with Leroy Bull, a master dowser from Doylestown, PA who has been dowsing for over 50 years. He regularly finds wells and lost items, and locates and remediates areas of GS.

Slim Spurling's Tools to Disperse & Remediate Geopathic Stress

This past August, I attended a workshop at the Nature Lyceum (Westhampton, NY) which featured a presentation by Slim Spurling, one of the foremost experts on geopathic stress in the country and one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met. Spurling taught some very simple techniques to dowse for GS and methods of diverting these potentially destructive energies.

After training with Slim, I wondered if geopathic stress could be contributing to annual turf decline on one of the greens on our restored William Flynn course. This particular green has been a challenge for ten years, with only limited response from all kinds of agronomic approaches.

Upon dowsing the area and finding six horizontal GS lines 10-12’ wide running through the green complex, I immediately felt I was onto something. To confirm my findings, I hired Leroy Bull to come in and dowse the green. Sure enough, he found the same six lines but also what he calls a vertical energy vortex just off the green. Leroy had me stand in the center of this vortex, at which time my feet started to feel a little strange. I was convinced there was something going on there.

Typically, lines of geopathic stress are remediated by dowsing to find the center and the direction of flow, and then burying an 18" wide copper staple a few inches deep. This diverts the energy up like a rainbow, over and back down underground thus creating a protective "dome" in the target area.

Having just returned from the Spurling seminar, however, I suggested to Leroy that we instead bury in the green one of the copper/brass ring devices developed by Spurling along with another copper/brass amplifying device called the Energy Enveloper to widen the effect of the ring. Leroy dowsed the best location and the depth to bury it. Following the installation, GS lines are not detectable at this location. Six weeks later, in my opinion, the green has a new vibrancy of health.

I have also seen a correlation between GS and turf problems at other locations here at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, including increased incidence of dollar spot in the 10-12’ swath that encompasses the typical GS line.

Working with my wife, Susan, at her holistic wellness center, I have blocked GS at a dozen or so homes and businesses; all have had tell-tale signs of GS including weak landscape plants, gaps in hedges, excessive mold or mildew, and cracks in walls or driveways in line with the center of the GS lines. A few of these locations have also had a homeowner with a serious illness.

Could there be a connection? I think so, but as with all this type of "no see ‘em" stuff, I urge you to find your own truth, avoiding total skepticism until you do a little homework or research on your own.

Editor’s Note:
Yeah, this concept may seem a little over the top at first glance. However, last year I (skeptically) attended a dowsing seminar given by Scott and Leroy Bull. There, I personally saw and felt things that I simply could not explain.

Scott has been at the 27 hole HVCC for 23 years now, during which time he has convinced his membership on the benefits of "down and brown" low input management with a strong emphasis on alternative organic products and methodologies. At the very least, he is unafraid to explore and investigate the unproven and the esoteric.

By suggesting to him the idea of writing for us, I simply hoped to open other minds to exploring alternative concepts as well. Often seemingly complex problems have simple solutions right under our noses.
