A Different Kind Of Building Biologist, Part III

As I mentioned in Part I of this series, one way the Shielded Healing folks differ from other building biologists is the attention they give to what are called telluric or geopathic currents and magnetic fields from the earth.

Telluric Currents

This takes us into territory that might be called “superstition” or “folklore,” on which modern science, now armed with highly sensitive equipment, is gradually shedding some light.

We now know that the earth is crisscrossed with lines of very low frequency energies called telluric currents, caused by magnetic fields, underground streams, veins of metals, etc. Some individuals are able to sense these energies using instruments like dowsing rods or pendulums, or simply through their bare hands.

Since the beginning of the modern age, scientists regarded the ability to perceive subtle energies as a superstition. However, today, science is beginning to validate these practices.

French Dowser
A dowser, from an 18th century French book about superstitions.

Divining rods and all common dowsing devices are just simple forms of electroscopes (an instrument for detecting and measuring electricity). The divining rods are charged with static electricity from the dowser’s own body.  This static electricity can be measured with a simple millivolt meter.  The amount of voltage will vary depending on the person. A good dowser will have a high reading, above 100 mv, while a poor dowser may read as low as 0 mv.

In a 1998 study entitled “Dowsing Data Defy the Skeptics,” published in Popular Mechanics, author Jim Wilson describes a study in which researchers analyzed the successes and failures of dowsers in attempting to locate water at more than two thousand sites in arid regions of Sri Lanka, Zaire, Kenya, Namibia and Yemen over a ten-year period. To do this, researchers teamed geological experts with experienced dowsers and then set up a scientific study group to evaluate the results. Drill crews guided by dowsers didn’t hit water every time, but their success rate was impressive.  In Sri Lanka, for example, they drilled almost seven hundred holes and had an overall success rate of 96 percent.

Albert Einstein did not dismiss the practice of dowsing; in a 1946 letter to Mr. Herman E Peisach he wrote: “I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as a type of superstition. According to my conviction this is, however, unjustified.  The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time.”

We know that the ancients recognized the patterns of the grids on the earth. For example, Plato devised a theory regarding his belief that the earth’s basic structure evolved from a simply geometric shape to more complex geometric shapes. Students of these telluric currents have noted that many important megalithic sites are aligned on or within one quarter degree of a great circle.

The following important megalithic sites are aligned on or within one quarter degree of this great circle:
Easter Island
Tassili n’Ajjer
Giza (Great Pyramid)
Machupicchu and Cuzco
Mohenjo Daro
Sumerian city of Ur
Angkor temples in Cambodia
Mouth of the Amazon
Mouth of the Tigris-Euphrates
Bay of Bengal near the mouth of the Ganges.

Today even Wikipedia, that great watchdog that guards us against interesting ideas in alternative science and medicine, recognizes the reality of telluric currents: According to Wikipedia, “A telluric current (from Latin tellūs, “earth”) is an electric current which moves underground or through the sea. Telluric currents result from both natural causes and human activity, and the discrete currents interact in a complex pattern. The currents are extremely low frequency and travel over large areas at or near the surface of the Earth.

“Telluric currents are phenomena observed in the Earth’s crust and mantle. Telluric currents flow in the surface layers of the earth. The electric potential on the Earth’s surface can be measured at different points, enabling us to calculate the magnitudes and directions of the telluric currents and thence the Earth’s conductance.

“Both the telluric and magneto-telluric methods are used for exploring the structure beneath the Earth’s surface (such as in industrial prospecting). For mineral exploration the targets are conductive ore bodies. Other uses include exploration of geothermal fields, petroleum reservoirs, fault zones, ground water, magma chambers, and plate tectonic boundaries. Telluric currents can be harnessed to produce a useful low voltage current by means of earth batteries. Such devices were used for telegraph systems in the United States as far back as 1859.”

Some researchers, such as the late Phil Callahan, believe that ancient peoples erected standing stones, round towers, monuments, etc. on so-called energy spots, the intersection of two or more telluric currents, as a way of increasing the fertility of the soil. The mysterious round towers of Ireland may have served as devices to magnify earth energies.

My husband and I once visited a vegetable garden in Wisconsin where the gardener had erected a small pyramid of wood over an energy spot in the middle of the garden.  The vegetation was incredibly lush and she had no problems with insect pests.

My husband Geoffrey is an excellent dowser—he can pick up not only underground water, but also what he calls energy spots–with his hands.  Life is very interesting when you are married to a good dowser!  In our travels, he’s found many energy spots at landmarks and churches (usually under the baptismal font, occasionally under the altar).  There is an energy spot under the dome of the U.S. Capitol and inside the beautiful Building Museum, situated at 5th and H Streets, NW. There is a very powerful energy spot at the Washington Monument. The placement of the monument over this energy spot may explain why it is off center of the line between the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial. Like all cathedrals, the Washington National Cathedral is built over an energy spot. What is unusual in the Washington National Cathedral is the location of this energy spot–at the front entrance rather than under the altar or the baptismal font.

Naturally, Geoffrey has dowsed our farm.  He found a spot for digging a new well, and also three energy spots: one on a rise in a front field, one just behind the house, and one in the woods, at the site of an enormous tulip poplar tree.

When a Shielded Healing rep comes to your house, he or she will look for various common electromagnetic stressors in the home and use innovative ways to test these stressors. Geopathic stress or telluric currents are a type of EMF stress that is naturally occurring but man’s interference with nature can make these exposures more intense or distorted. For example, sticking metal into the ground can interfere with the Earth’s natural electrical pathways. The electrical grid can put pulsing frequencies that flow through conductive layers of the earth’s crust and wireless radiation often resonates with conductive ore deposits and can be detected by sensitive equipment. People can get symptoms from these types of exposures.

Greg from Shielded Healing doused the house and found a very strong telluric current running through our bedroom—basically a line that connected the energy spot in our front field with the one behind the house.  He determined that the line followed an underground stream.  The traditional Irish would call this a fairy line, and it ran right through Geoffrey’s side of the bed. In addition, several Hartman and Curry lines intersected the telluric current in just that spot.

Discovered by the physician Ernst Hartmann in 1954 and described in detail in his book Krankheit als Standortproblem (Illness as a Location Problem), the Hartmann grid is associated with the Earth’s magnetic field. Its lines measure between eight and twelve inches in width and are spaced about six feet apart in the north-south direction and about ten feet apart in the east-west direction. In his book, Hartmann provides evidence that its effects are pathogenic, that people living directly over the grid have more illness.

The Curry grid runs diagonally to the Hartmann global grid. Its lines measure between twelve and sixteen inches in width and are spaced between eight and twelve feet apart. Like the Hartmann grid, the Curry grid also encompasses the entire Earth. According to the website swissharmony.com, “Moon cycles influence the intensity of the Curry grid. At full moon, energy levels are particularly strong where it intersects with the Hartmann Grid. Some maintain that if it also crosses an underground waterway at that point, it becomes especially dangerous for people.”

That was exactly the situation where Geoffrey was sleeping—an underground waterway intersected by both Hartmann lines and Curry lines–and it so happens that ever since we moved into the house, he would often wake up in the early morning hours itching all over—no rash but intense itching. The Irish would say he was being attacked by fairies!

At Greg’s suggestion, we moved the bed to another wall and guess what—no more itching! Greg also doused the kitchen table and found that the underground waterway went right through the end where Geoffrey usually ate, and Curry and Hartman lines crossed there also!  Now he eats at a different spot at the table—and I have observed a heartier appetite since we made that change.

Even in modern times, the Chinese consider the placement of a house, and of the furniture within a house, so important that they have a whole science devoted to the subject: Feng Shui. Wikipedia dubs Feng Shui a “pseudoscience,” but today we are discovering the scientific validation to support this practice. I predict that a kind of modern Feng Shui will become standard practice in the West, whenever we build a house and arrange the furniture.

  1. FANTASTIC information!! i’d love to know if anyone in the states helps to teach this/mentor this? blessed-be

    1. Very interesting. Thanks for your research and stories from around the world! These energy spots have been mentioned in many documentaries lately when discussing ancient holy sites. How can one measure energy places and telluric currents in their area or on travel? Know of any good places in Pennsylvania? We are in Willow Grove outside Philly. Should I consider learning dousing? If so, where would one get some of these and do you have recommendations? amazon? lol!
