What is geopathic stress?
Geopathic stress is a relatively new term that covers the relationship between earth energies and people’s well-being.
“Geo” obviously means “Earth” (or “Land”). The term “Pathic” is a very interesting one. It indicates both a disease, as well as a cure for disease.
The most accurate definition of geopathic stress is the study of earth energies and their effect on human well-being. You will find that sometimes there will be more topics included under the same “geopathic stress” umbrella, such as the sick building syndrome, or the EMF pollution.
This is not exactly accurate, so we will stay with the original definition of geopathic stress as the study of earth energies and their effect on human health.
There are various types of earth energies, some very beneficient for human health, and some detrimental. In ancient times the feng shui masters and geomancers were familiar with the earth currents; they knew which sites to recommend for building, and which sites to avoid.
We have lost interest in this knowledge in the modern times, and are coming back to it now because there is an increase in the number of geopathic stress related diseases.
Basically, various underground formations, such as subterranean water currents, specific mineral deposits, or different fault lines emit specific electromagnetic fields that can be harmful for a human dwelling.
If you are just passing through an area with geopathic stress, there will be little or no concern. However, if your house is located in a geopathic stress area, you really need to understand what is happening and find appropriate solutions to protect your health.
How Can A Specific Earth Energy Weaken Human Health?
To answer it, imagine having a house right above the highway (the energy equivalent of a ley line), or above a rushing river (an underground water current). How does that feel? How does your body feel? We are talking about underground formations, so it might be hard to understand the relation between invisible factors, but just because we cannot see it does not mean it’s not there!
The vibrations emitted by various earth energies do not cause a specific illness, but rather lower a person’s immunity to fight diseases. If your bed is placed above an underground water current, all your body can do is try hard to keep its basic balance. It does not have enough energy left to focus on regenerating and replenishing itself.
So, why do we need protecting from what may be very weak electromagnetic fields but which, on occasion, may be distorted to as high as 250 Hz? Well, the correct functioning of our biological rhythms, cell metabolism, physiological state, and mental well-being depends on communication between the electrical system of our brain, body and endocrine system, and the weak electromagnetic and magnetic fields generated by the planet. Our bodies are full of magnetizable materials such as the iron in our blood. Life on Earth evolved against the natural electromagnetic field of the planet and so human beings are accustomed to living within its background oscillation at a frequency of around 7.83 Hz and can adapt to the slight fluctuations in the field created by electrical storms, magnetic irregularities and solar activity. However, larger fluctuations in electromagnetic and geopathic energy can be detrimental to the health of human beings. If your bed is located over a geopathic or underground water line, for instance, insomnia will be the most likely result. You will have difficulty in falling, and remaining, asleep. Waking between 2 and 3am is common as GS reaches a maximum at this time of the night, especially with a full moon. But other chronic health problems such as cancer may well arise. The most effective action you can take is to move: either to move the bed, a favorite chair and your desk, or, for the worst-case scenario, move house or change your office altogether. But, there are tools which may assist, crystals being among them.
What Causes Geopathic Stress Lines?
Geopathic stress lines or zones emanate EMF radiation naturally from the earth due to geological features such as underground streams, mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities.
Man-made alterations of the landscape, anything from underground cables to road construction projects, can create or intensify geopathic stress
Geopathic stress lines can span from two to 200 feet, and reach a height of 600 to 30,000 feet. Their direction is random and may be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. When natural radiation rises through the earth from geopathic stress lines, its wavelength becomes distorted. These distorted fields of radiation are harmful to all living organisms.
Electrical ground current is can be a factor that causes Geopathic stress. Electrical current returning to the substation through the earth can act as “stray voltage.” Electrical ground currents occur when the utility’s wire is overloaded and returns back to the substation “off the wire,” traveling through the earth conducted by soil, water, plumbing lines.
Electro-pathological energy created by modern technology can also contribute to geopathic stress in the form of high and low frequency energy from telecommunication towers, electricity pylons, transformers, radar and radio towers. As well as electromagnetic fields that emanate from such structures as high tension, or satellite towers, electrical street poles, or circuit breakers.
How do you recognize when you’re at risk?
You can get a very savvy, experienced dowser to find locations, width and severity of the earth stressors OR just proceed “as if” there is a worst case scenario happening in your home, office or bedroom. Just apply some simple yet effective remedies – then you’ve got all your bases covered.
To find the answer to this question, you will inquire into the state of your house, as well as the state of your health. Usually, there are only 2 ways people come to inquire about geopathic stress – they either know for sure that there is a present of geopathic stress in their home and they are looking for solutions; or they are just curious to find out about it.
If you have any repeated health concerns, or emotional problems with family members, in other words, if there is an insistent presence of any unwanted energies in your family house, best to check your house for geopathic stress. You can do that yourself with dowsing or you can find a professional dowser to help you.
The house symptoms of geopathic stress can express themselves anywhere from constant water leakages to cold and damp areas, or in more subtle ways, such as a very restless energy in your bedroom, for example.
What can we do?
So, how do you recognize geopathically stressed areas or whether you are suffering from EMF sensitivity? Well apart from their noticeable effect on health and wellbeing in those who are sensitive, both can be dowsed for. You may feel it in the environment too. The energy is heavy and ‘sticky’. You may simply feel the need to open a window because you are yawning a lot and the air feels stale. Or you may notice that you feel distinctly worse after being in a particular place for any length of time. There are immediate pointers for GS. Trees tend to grow well on one side and noticeably less well on the other. The trunk will twist to get away from the stress. There may be a line of stunted growth through a crop. Animals – cats rather than dogs – are attracted to areas of geomagnetic stress and will often sleep on a toxic line with resultant diseases such as cancers, kidney or liver failure. Babies and young children tend to try to escape from geopathic lines, squishing up in a corner of their bed, toddlers and older children sleepwalk or climb into their parents’ bed to escape from the effects. If the parents’ bed is on the line they themselves may well sleep at an angle to avoid it and will suffer from insomnia and restlessness. Older children exhibit behavior problems and constant low-level illnesses, as may the adults.
If you see a dead or dying tree leaning at an angle and covered in ivy, a mass of ants and bees or termites, and a line of stunted growth through crops or trees that flower but do not bear fruit, and a crack on a building, aligned with an area of quarrying or other earth disturbance, a high water table or an underground watercourse or metal pipes, and the inhabitants of that building are diseased or chronically sick, or a combination of the above, then you can be pretty certain that the building is sitting on a geopathic stress line. Also, do bear in mind that GS is being created all the time. If you live in a city, or elsewhere, that has building or construction work such as tunneling or deep foundation pile-driving, GS may be newly created in a formerly stress free zone. Existing zones may change. It is a good idea to dowse at regular intervals to check, or keep a close eye on the behaviour of your pets. Fortunately, crystals can create subtle energetic grids that protect you from the effects of EMFs and GS and which, as long as they are cleansed regularly, support healthy energy fields, instilling beneficial bioenergy patterns and easing the physiological and psychological symptoms and effects.
People feel dizzy for hours after they bust the geo stress in their yards, followed by clear detox symptoms. This is what most experts agree on though; Certain animals like cats, owls, ants, most medicinal herbs, flourish on geo pathic stress. Bees even increase their production of honey by a third. Oak trees prefer growing there, and bark from them to make cork floor tiles protects a bed from geo stress.
After detecting Geopathic stress it becomes necessary to treat the affected zone while sleeping area is the most afflicted place as during sleep we are stationary and at this time period geopathic waves make their work possible on individual. However we can’t really alter our house in order to relieve from geopathic stress but atleast rectify the place to de-stress our zone.
There is much that can be done to remove Geopathic stress arising from disturbed underground water veins, and protocols can be divided into three types: avoiding, shielding and curative.
Moving out geopathic stress: ‘Avoiding’ generally involves moving the bed away from the zones of disturbance, having identified them with dowsing rods or meters. This is the ideal short-term solution, however it is often not practical in a typical small house.
Sleeping position determines our resistance to particular area while we asleep we are much more under the geopathic stress which causes frequent illnesses and fatal diseases in rare cases.
To shield a residence from the path and effects of a “Sha stream”, traditional Chinese devices include the building of a Dragon wall (a screen wall with an undulating ridge), the digging of a ditch or the burying of a protective talisman at an appropriate point on the path of the stream. Modern Western methods include a layer of cork tiles or bath mats placed under the bed, the careful placing of crystals, bottles of salt, copper rods, coils and ankhs, or the installation of radionic devices such as the Spiral Of Tranquillity, and Raditech, Helios and Geomack machines, generally using Multi-Wave Oscillators or Radionics to establish a shielding field.
Remember the old stately homes and large farm houses of the past? The buildings’ corners were often built up out of serious large solid field stones, giving a very anchoring feeling but doing much more. These stones have a very high silica content. Silica deflects geo-pathic stresses emanating from the earth, causing these to flow around the home rather than through. So these stones had a very specific physical purpose that seems to now have been lost. Marble contains silica, too. It’s interesting that silica is such a huge part of biodynamic farming for healing the land!
Blocking the negativity with cork: Cork (outer layer of oak tree) is considered to have natural blocking power and if your sleeping is affected with geopathic stress than put a piece of cork beneath your mattress. While installing cork mat or tiles which are easy to avail in market today will surely give relief from GS. I have cork floors and I dowsed my house when I learned about cork, I was happy to find that the areas that we have cork flooring seem to have less GS.
Earth Acupuncture can also help. This can be performed using wood, metal, stone or crystal “needles”, or other healing interventions, applied to the appropriate earth acupuncture points (Xue) for a variable time. This could be a few seconds or a few hours, or could be a permanent placement according to the size and nature of the underground stream. With larger meridians, as with geological faults, a needle may need to be left in place permanently.
A wide range of other curative styles have been employed, from the application of flower and gem essences or symbols to selected points, through offerings and dialogue with local nature spirits and landscape angels, to ceremony, prayer, meditation and focussed visualization and distant healing. These may be broadly classified under the heading of ‘Earth Acupuncture’ in as much as they all represent a therapeutic input to the local situation, gaining leverage to transform ill health via the focus through a specific point or points on the ground. What all these cures have in common is a therapeutic intention, often in a sacred ceremonial context. Often the spirit world will need to be addressed directly, in Heaven as well as Underground.
Neutralize the Geopathic Stress: Essentially neutralizing is another method of dealing with geopathic stress under critical situations. Devices like Hartmann spirals and flat dielectrical resonators are placed under the bed to discard GS. Electronic machines plugged in main switch are good option to neutralize the geopathic afflicted area and dowsers are ideal and commonly used by most practitioners.
Good news is, studies have shown that when the home or work place of the affected person is neutralized, the geopathic stress symptoms resolve themselves and the body begins to heal.
Since the discovery of electricity we have been increasingly exposed to a wide range of powerful, artificially generated, electromagnetic radiation that adversely affects the Earth’s energy field and the human body. This sudden onslaught has been accompanied by an exponential rise in the ‘diseases of civilization’, cancer, diabetes, heart attacks, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel, Parkinson’s and the like, all of which are now being shown to be consequences of electromagnetic sensitivity and geopathic tension. So, why do we need protecting from what may be very weak electromagnetic fields but which, on occasion, may be distorted to as high as 250 Hz? Well, the correct functioning of our biological rhythms, cell metabolism, physiological state, and mental well-being depends on communication between the electrical system of our brain, body and endocrine system, and the weak electromagnetic and magnetic fields generated by the planet. Our bodies are full of magnetizable materials such as the iron in our blood. Life on Earth evolved against the natural electromagnetic field of the planet and so human beings are accustomed to living within its background oscillation at a frequency of around 7.83 Hz and can adapt to the slight fluctuations in the field created by electrical storms, magnetic irregularities and solar activity.

Waking between 2 and 3am is common as GS reaches a maximum at this time of the night, especially with a full moon. But other chronic health problems such as cancer may well arise. The most effective action you can take is to move: either to move the bed, a favorite chair and your desk, or, for the worst-case scenario, move house or change your office altogether. But, there are tools which may assist, crystals being among them.
Harmonizing the flow
Stones that have a high silica-rich Quartz content, and silica both discharges, stores and generates energy. Needles of stone either brought earth energies to the surface or diverted their course, or drew cosmic energy down to Earth. These ancient constructions were not randomly placed on the landscape, they were sited where they could control the energies and hold the balance between active – positive – currents, and passive – negative – currents, harmonizing the environment. When placed on a source of detrimental energy, crystals can harmonize the energies so that they are no longer toxic or a source of disturbance to your own energy field or your environment. The positive, coherent field neutralizing and harmonizing a detrimental, disorganized one. Consider an energetic harmonizing tool. Geopathic stress is generally compared to EMF as being very similar. An energetic harmoniser such as our P.e Bal is what we would recommend.
Using your crystals
Crystals can be used either to mitigate the effects of GS and EMFs, to harmonize them so that your body can cope, or to deflect or block them altogether. Most crystals can be placed over clothing on the appropriate chakra, or over organs or the site of dis-ease and left in place for 15–20 minutes or so. They can also be placed around the body, out in your aura or in your space or the environment to create energetic grids. If you are combating GS, grids can be buried directly into the ground (choose dark, robust stones such as Black Tourmaline or Smoky Quartz and mark the spot so that the crystals can be cleansed regularly) or stones can be inserted into the ground as stone needles. Rose quartz and silicon carbide crystals are considered to be very effective in counteracting the harmful effects of radiation, so they are often placed in geopathically stressed areas of houses. Crystals can be permanently placed around your bed or a room, or against a source of detrimental EMFs. If you are protecting your home, place the crystals point out to redirect and transmute negative energy and to harmonize the space. If you are drawing in beneficial energies, place the crystals point in. When you have placed the stones, close your eyes and breathe gently and evenly, and allow yourself to relax and feel the energy of the crystal radiating out through your whole being or your environment. Hold the intention that the stones will work for you.
There are five major ways in which protecting yourself from EMF and GS can be approached with crystals:
Approach 1: Shield
This method works particularly well if you have already healed, or have avoided, the detrimental effects of EMFs and GS. A shielding crystal surrounds the outer edge of your bioenergy field with a protective coating and does not let the EMF or GS through into your inner space. Shungite, comprised of hollow fullerenes or ‘bucky balls’ is particularly effective as it acts as a ‘cage’ for EMFs. Similarly, crystals can be placed next to an EMF source to shield it or on a GS line to deflect it. Place a large Shungite, Quartz, Black Tourmaline, Amazonite or Rose Quartz crystal between you and a source of electromagnetic pollution.
Approach 2: Support
Crystals can strengthen your bioenergy field and align it with your physical body, bringing them into harmony and stimulating your immune system to heal and defend itself against detrimental energies. Crystals from the trigonal family, such as Quartz, resonate with the ‘brain sand’ in the pineal gland which produces melatonin, essential for endocrine health, bringing it back into balance through sympathetic resonance.
Approach 3: Transmute
Crystals can transmute toxic energies into beneficial ones, preventing damage in the first place. Gridded around a source, the crystals act like a voltage converter, changing the frequency and adapting it as necessary.
Approach 4: Ground
Crystals help you to anchor your energies to the Earth, grounding you and strengthen the lower chakras so that you are more resistant to the toxic effects of GS or EMFs. They also ground the energy of EMF or GS sources. Being earthed means that you, or your space, discharge EMFs into the ground. Flint is particularly useful for this grounding work. Getting grounded
One of the best tools for handling EMF and GS sensitivity is to get yourself grounded, in contact with the planet and completely earthed with your lower chakras fully functioning. So many people who suffer from excessive sensitivity have only a toehold in this incarnation, barely tolerating being in a physical body and always reaching ‘out there’ for the answer. So, make contact with the Earth, make a friend of your body, become comfortable in your incarnation and the detrimental effects will lessen significantly. How do you do this? Use crystals! Flint, Boji Stones, Hematite and Smoky Quartz are all excellent grounding stones, carry them with you or use them, and invaluable Shungite or Black Tourmaline to shield and block negative lines or sources of EMF pollution such as computers or mobile phones.
Approach 5: Negative ions
Ions are electronically charged atoms or molecules that exist throughout our environment. Negatively-charged ions stimulate the body’s defensive mononuclear phagocyte system, a network of cells that help filter out dead and toxic elements and maintain healthy organ function and blood chemistry. Negative ions assist the body to repair cellular damage and a strong negative ion field can help to prevent initial damage. Certain crystals such as Amethyst, Zeolite and Tourmaline naturally create negative ions from moisture in the air and build a shielding field with them. This is especially helpful in areas affected by powerlines and other electrical equipment that creates harmful positive corona ion streams. Wear the crystals constantly.
Deflecting any geo-pathic stresses from stress-faults and underground water streams and flows and broken Hartman grid lines below your bed is essential.
How to Dowse for Geopathic stress
Most people readily associate dowsing with finding water! However you can use dowsing rods and pendulums for so much more including negative grid lines, health, medicine, allergies, chakra balancing, archaeology, alchemy, finding hidden artifacts and minerals, spirits etc.
Dowsing is a skill that anyone can learn. Before you practice you do need to discover what the movement of the pendulum or dowsing rod means. The first step is determining what your responses mean. Your responses may vary from another person’s but that is fine – what works for you is all that counts! Drop your pendulum down and ask it “which way is yes” then ask it “which way is no”.
To start dowsing for Geopathic stress lines draw a plan of your house. State firmly in your mind that you are looking for Geopathic stress lines; then systematically walk through each room of your house marking on the plan where the dowsing rods cross or the pendulum swings to the Yes position.
It is important to realise that environments are like our physical bodies — they are energy systems, have levels of consciousness ranging from the physical to the spiritual, have energy flows around, through, and within them, and can be in a state of balance or imbalance. The grid lines that run through an environment are like the meridians of our bodies, and like our own bodies, environments are alive and continuously impacted by the energy qualities that come into it from outside sources. Sometimes these factors vary over time, and, like our own bodies, can be in balance one day, and out of balance the next. Like ourselves, environments require some constant source of beneficial energy to maintain health and well-being. Opening of windows to allow for cross flow ventilation, smudging and energetic clearing of the home is recommended on a regular basis.
