Order and Harmony


With all of the uncertainty, disorder and chaos swirling around us during this current cycle, it is important to remember what is really important. Within each  of our individual lives, we can consciously create order and harmony. Our living space is a great place to begin!

We all are aware by now of the importance of controlling noise, eliminating clutter, and bringing in fresh air and natural light into our living spaces, but  there are other invisible energies that also affect our health and well-being.

In Feng Shui, we know that we are strongly influenced by all objects in our environment. I have found in my space clearing sessions that certain art and decorative objects can have a very weakening effect on people. I muscle test  my clients (using kinesiology) while they are looking at a particular painting,  statue, decorative object etc. to see whether it strengthens or weakens them.  It is amazing how often a work of art that is prominently displayed right  where they enter the house or on the wall opposite the bed where it is the first  thing  they see when they wake up, weakens them.

An interesting experiment, carried out by a fellow dowsing colleague, Bill Russell, showed that even the way we place our shoes on the floor when we  take them off of our feet could strengthen or weaken us!

People muscle tested strong when they looked at a pair of shoes that were  harmony lined up together in a parallel fashion. When the shoes were pointing towards each other, however, or one shoe was facing forward and one shoe  was facing backward, or they were just tumbled together, the person tested  weak!! He found we have an energetic “tie” to our shoes, as they are symbols of our feet.

Here is the link to his insightful article:

It is important to look around when you are at your desk, dining table, or anywhere you sit frequently and see what is on the wall, on a table, or on the floor. Then, focus on it and muscle test or dowse to discover its effect on you. If you are unfamiliar with muscle testing, there are You Tube videos that demonstrate the technique (kinesiology).

There are many things in our environment, from our art to our shoes that need to be tested to ensure we are consciously creating order and harmony within  our homes and offices. Just because you like or are attracted to some object,  you paid a fortune for a piece of artwork or it was created by a famous artist doesn’t mean it is supportive of your health and well-being. It might not be in resonance with your personal energetic frequency. By making conscious changes to our environment, we can reduce much of the stress and anxiety in  our lives


Invisible Sha Energies

When looking at the Feng Shui of a home or business, we are always concerned about the building’s shape, magnetic direction, it’s interior environment, the flow of qi within the structure, the placement of furnishings, electromagnetic fields and the impact all of these energies have on the occupant’s health and well being.

Feng Shui is about creating an environment that is in alignment with the “healing forces of nature.” But, there is one obvious health hazard that is often overlooked and blindly accepted as a modern necessity- the microwave oven. This appliance produces “sha” – negative qi. Microwave ovens are in 90% of America’s kitchens and many lunchrooms. Most people think there are no negative health effects from the microwaves.

Many are now aware (or should be) of the danger of standing in front of a microwave oven when it is turned on because of the leakage from the oven door of microwaves into the environment. If one stands holding a fluorescent tube in front of the oven when it is turned on, it usually will light up without being plugged into any source of electricity!

All microwave ovens contain a magnetron which is a tube in which electrons are affected by magnetic and electric fields. They produce microwave radiation that vibrates 2.4 billion times per second. This energy acts on the molecules in food, particularly water molecules, causing them to vibrate rapidly. This rapid movement generates friction and thus heat. Vibration is so violent that molecules are often torn apart or deformed, thereby changing the chemical makeup of the food.

The Russians have done the most extensive research into the dangers of microwave ovens. In 1976, microwave ovens were totally banned in the Soviet Union and they issued an international warning about the biological and environmental damage that can result from using this appliance. Using highly sophisticated measurement equipment they made the following discoveries:

  • Eating food processed from a microwave oven may cause permanent brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain.
  • Male and female hormone production can be shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
  • Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit.
  • The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
  • Microwaved foods can cause stomach and intestinal cancerous tumors.
  • Eating food processed from a microwave oven may cause permanent brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain.
  • Male and female hormone production can be shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
  • Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit.
  • The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
  • Microwaved foods can cause stomach and intestinal cancerous tumors.
  • Continual ingestion of microwaved food lowers the immune system Eating microwaved food may cause loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
  • Microwaving alters elemental foodsubstances, causing digestive disorders.
  • Microwaved foods lower the body’s ability to utilize B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics.
  • Microwaved foods lose 60 to 90 percent of the vital-energy field and microwaving accelerates the structural disintegration of foods.

Carcinogenic compounds were formed in virtually all foods tested under normal cooking conditions. No test food was subjected to more microwaving than neces- sary to accomplish the purpose i.e., cooking, thawing, or heating to ensure sanitary conditions.

  • Microwaving prepared meats caused the formation of the carcinogens.
  • Microwaving milk and cereal grains converted some of the amino acids to carcinogens.
  • Thawing frozen fruit converted their glucoside and galactoside conaining fractions into carcinogenic substances.
  • Short exposure of raw, cooked or frozen vegetables converted their plant alkaloiin to carcinogens.
  • Microwaved root vegetables developed carcinogenic free radicals.

In 1991 Dr. Hans Hertel a retired Swiss food scientist and Lausanne University Professor Blanc did a ‘blind’ study of the effect of microwaved versus ‘normal’ foods.
They found microwave cooking changed the nutrients of food. These were not healthy changes, but changes that could cause deterioration in human systems.

They found:

  • Decreases in all hemoglobin values.
  • Increases in hematocrit, leukocytes and cholesterol values.
  • Decreases in the ratio of good to bad cholesterol.
  • Decrease in white blood cells following ingestion of microwaved food.
  • Evidence that microwave energies are passed to the cells via the blood.

In 1992 a Swiss court issued a gag order against Hertel and Blanc. A ferocious attack ensued. In 1993, Hertel was convicted of “interfering with commerce” and prohibited from publishing. In 1998 the European Court of Human Rights held that the gag order was contrary to the right of freedom of expression. Switzerland was ordered to pay Hertel compensation.

There are many sites where you can read about the dangers of microwave ovens. Research is currently being done in England to see if there is a link between the current obesity epidemic and the lack of nutrients of microwaved foods. A good alternative is a convection oven which is just a toaster oven with a fan. It cooks faster than a regular toaster oven, more evenly and isn’t destroying your food.

The perfect Feng Shui remedy is to throw your microwave away…NOW!!


First Sleep, Second Sleep

Feng Shui Help With Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is a very common concern that many of my Feng Shui clients experience. In fact, forty nine percent of Americans report difficulty in sleeping. Anxiety and stress over waking up during the night and not being able to go back to sleep, often leads to taking prescription sleeping pills etc., the pills then lead to their own problems and it is a downward spiral.

After implementing all of the Feng Shui principles such as placing the bed in a good location, having their head pointing in the right direction, taking the mirrors out of the bedroom, removing all electronics, having adequate darkness and the right colors, air, and basically balancing the qi in the bedroom, I found there were still clients who could not sleep through the night.

So, through research on this problem, I was amazed to rediscover the sleeping patterns of our ancestors. They didn’t sleep in one eight – hour chunk. That is a modern invention – a modern myth! They used to sleep in two shorter periods over a longer range.

The existence of our sleeping twice per night was first uncovered by Roger Ekirch, a professor of history at Virginia Tech. He wrote about the history of sleep in a veryengaging book called “At Day’s Close: Night in Times Past.” In it, are hundreds of references scattered throughout literature, court documents, and personal papers that show the practice was common knowledge.

Ekirch found this sleeping pattern died out a around the time of the Industrial Revolution when everyone and everything became more regimented. Our ancestors practiced what is known as “first sleep” and “second sleep.” Thistwo–piece sleeping period lasted approximately twelve hours. They would go to sleep for approximately four hours and then wake up for three – four hours hours and then go back to sleep for another three to four hours. In the in between twilight hours, people would read, write, pray (religious manuals had special prayers for the mid-sleep hours,) talk, have sex or get up and go visit neighbors. The first four hours produced the deepest sleep. It was a period of unusual calmness- unlike the anxiety we experience today upon waking up at 3 three in the morning and thinking we need to get back to sleep for our physical and mental well-being!!

Two sleeps per night may have been the method of antiquity, but tendencies towards it still linger in modern man! It may be the answer to a lot of our current health problems.


We are the Whirled! Heal Your Lymphatic Ocean

While searching for info on the human lymphatic system and its correlation to the Earth’s water system , I came across this wonderful article by David Yarrow, an old time dowser, who I met a few times at the convention in Vermont. Ninety percent of our bodily fluids form the lymph system.

Lympha was the name of the Roman Goddess of clear water!! She was prayed to in order to maintain a harmonious, balanced water supply. If the ritual to honor her was not properly observed, she rebelled and caused a drought.

Another finding about the lymphatic system is that the color indigo brings it back into balance. Indigo (according to Dinsha) also neutralizes aluminum (product of chemtrails) which is drying out our atmosphere (and much more.) As David says, “We are the Whirled!!”



Stone Medicine in China

Stone Medicine

The knowledge of using stones and rocks as healing agents goes back thousands of years. In China, stones were held in high regard and were an integral part of their ancient medicinal practices. Stones were originally as important as herbs, but of course, when you purchase a stone it lasts a lifetime – there is no expiration date!

Herbs need to be continually purchased, so due to economic factors, herbs gained importance and stone medicine faded into the background. The ancient knowledge of stone medicine was further destroyed by Mao who started classifying patterns of symptoms into a simple quick fix system, like western medicine.

The field of Chinese medicine actually includes eight branches of treatment: acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, exercise (taiji and qigong), geomancy, moxibustion, and Feng Shui. The Chinese found that stones could be successfully used in conjunction with any of these modalities.

Jeffry Yuen, an 88th lineage holder of the Jade Purity School of Taoism has been orally transmitting the ancient knowledge of stone medicine, in conjunction with the above modalities for many years. He stresses that rocks are living, evolving entities and that their density and solidity bring greater permanence in healing than herbs. He also teaches that there is more stabilization in energetic intentions and therapies with stones, than in any other modalities. (more…)
