If you have been treated by an acupuncturist or energy worker (such
as a Reiki practitioner), you are aware of meridians in the body.
Meridians channel the flow of energy and can become blocked or stagnant.
When this happens, it can result in health consequences.
The same is true of Mother Earth. Blocked meridians can cause
geopathic stress. Geo means of the earth. Pathic implies the path it
takes, and in this case, means our reaction to the earth (how we
experience it or its effects). With my background in disaster recovery
and business continuity, let me explain geopathic stress another way.
The earth’s crust is constantly shifting. You’re aware that an
earthquake with aRichter scale readingof four or higher can cause buildings and roads to rumble and crack. An earthquake with aRichter of seven or more can affect the earth’s axis.
When an earthquake happens, there can be aftershocks that continue to
disrupt the land. Also, when an earthquake happens, there is a
reverberation that takes place elsewhere (such as surrounding areas or
even in faraway lands). Therefore, the earth’s crust is constantly
shifting and changing. As it does, it releases energy.
When people and animals are on or near the release of geopathic
stress, there are effects. A few examples of this: It can cause
agitation leading to abuse; disrupt sleep; affect learning disabilities
and hyperactivity; impact fertility, childbirth, and miscarriage;
increase fatigue and allergies; and it has been shown that in divorce –
one or both people have been exposed to geopathic stress. Intrigued?
Studies have shown that over 85% of patients who die from cancer have experienced regular exposure to geopathic stress.Ernst
Hartmann, MD, wrote that "Cancer is a disease of location triggered off
by geopathic stress. We all produce cancerous cells on a regular basis,
but they are continuously destroyed by our body’s immune system.
Geopathic stress does not cause cancer, but weakens our immune system."
