Chinese Emperor Kuang Yu (2205-2197 BC) proclaimed an edict, effective to this day, which reads: “No dwelling shall be built until the earth diviners have confirmed the intended building site to be free of earth demons.”

Knowledge of the mysterious underground energies and the ability to dowse their precise location is as integral to the Chinese Feng Shui and Indian Vastu Shastra traditions as it is to other geomantic traditions of the world. The personification of the telluric currents of the hydrological cycle as the consciousness of the subterranean Dragon, Serpent, or Crocodile spirit is a global image. Whether named Lung (Dragon, China), Naga (Water Serpent Spirit, India), Nak (subterranean Crocodile Spirit, Borneo), Wyvern (Dragon-Worm, Britain) or Wonambi (Rainbow Serpent Spirit, Pitjatjantjara and Yankunyjatjara, central Australia) these beings are variously respected, feared, appeased, tamed and honoured the world over.

Figures can be seen in ancient cave drawings that people were using magic wands to search for water and to detect Earth radiation. Different historical references indicate that people were aware of these phenomena already thousands of years ago. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks used wands. In the Middle Ages, it was the right of the Shamans to practice this science. And then, in a certain point of history Christian Church started to persecute this activity and Shamans were sent to be burnt on a bonfire.

Modern research on Geophatic Stress

George Lakhovsky, Russian bio-electric pioneer coined the term ‘Geopathy’, and first suggested in the 1930’s that geopathic stress causes the human body to vibrate at much higher frequencies than normal, and can affect the immune system, making people sleeping or working in geopathically stressed locations more susceptible to viruses, bacteria, parasites, and environmental pollution

Dr Hans Nieper, a widely respected German cancer specialist, says in his book, Revolution in Technology Medicine and Society: “According to studies I have initiated, at least 92% of all the cancer patients I have examined have remained for long periods of time, especially in respect of their sleeping place, in geopathically stressed zones.

The German dowser Baron von Pohl, was asked to dowse the small town of Vilsbiburg in 1929, having then the highest per capita cancer death rate in Bavaria. He discovered a 100 per cent correlation between the beds of cancer victims and the paths of underground streams passing beneath the town. He repeated the procedure in Grafenau in 1930, with the lowest cancer incidence in the province, and again found a 100 per cent correlation. He developed a scale to rate Geopathic stress of 1 to 16, where a combined tally of 9 or above from streams crossing gives rise to cancer.

Dr Hartmann M.D. researched the effects of earth rays on humans for over thirty years, and his experiences led him to produce a six hundred page report (Krankheit als Standort-problem, Heidelburg) stating that disease was a problem of location. He found that one of the first things to be adversely effected was the immune system, and as a result of this, individuals placed above an area of geopathic disturbance soon lost the ability to defend themselves against harmful bacteria that previously they were able to withstand. There was also a clear link with cancer in people that slept or worked above a Hartmann crossing point for lengthy periods of time. Dr Hartmann stated that in 30 years of practice, he had not come across a patient with cancer or otherwise seriously ill – with the exception of disease caused by bacteria or virus infections – who had not slept or stayed for long periods in geopathically stressed places.

Dr. Paul G. Seeger, Former Chief of Cancer Research, Charite Hospital, Berlin, Germany said “No serious-minded criticism, be it ever so prejudiced, can afford to ignore proofs of the existence of pathogenic telluric influences. Hundreds of cancer institutes all over the world have spent billions without having found any convincing proof of cancer’s cause. Why has it not been possible to spend a few million of that huge sum for a thorough investigation of telluric radiation as a prime cause of cancer in human beings. Why has this newly discovered continent of knowledge not been applied to cancer prevention?”
