In Germany and Austria today there are signs of the seriousness with which geopathic stress is taken. If you find time, this geopathic stress documentary is extremely interesting and compliments the work I have been doing over the last 12 years and 30 years my father before me with the same conclusions. The first studies that proved a link between cancer and geopathic stress were carried out in the early 20th century in Austria and Germany but, so far geopathic stress has been largely ignored in the UK. Germany has long been the seat of research in to the biological effects that pathogenic locations can have on both human and plant biochemistry. Historic roots of the investigation are built on claims that pathogenic zones exist at certain locations and that sleeping or spending long periods of time above them are linked to cancer, debilitating diseases of the central nervous system, chronic fatigue and general ill health. The research was conducted by a team of distinguished professors, doctors, engineers, scientists and dowsers. The ‘Location Effect’ of the ‘Disturbed Zone’ on regulatory systems of the human organism is proved without doubt and raises the question of which substratum, subsystem or system the location dependent powers primarily attack. The test results were lined up by Biometric Significance and are valued with the Serotonin and the Blood Corpuscle Decline Speed (BSG) in lead position.
The term ‘Location Load’ is synonymous to ‘Geopathic Stress’ which more generally describes the phenomenon in both Great Britain and the United States. Two of the worlds leading authorities on the nature and measurement of geopathic stress are university professors Gerhard W. Vega testing (the Vega test method) is an unorthodox method of diagnosing allergic and other diseases. Testing with the Vega machine is one of the bioenergetic regulatory techniques that has its origins in acupuncture and homoeopathy.
The use of Vega testing may lead to inappropriate treatment and expense to the patient and community. One of the reasons why an incontrovertible physical measurement of the assumedly existing electromagnetic fields appears to be impossible at present could be that these are very variable, broad-banded and at the same time only present in very low power strengths, “hidden” in the surrounding electromagnetic noise.
One can assume that there are many origins for the effects of different locations on humans, animals and plants.
Low energy, broad-banded and dynamically changing EMFs, creating resonance with structures of the human organism, may well be part of the geopathy phenomenon. Piezoelectricity is the ability of certain crystals and certain ceramic materials to generate electrical and magnetic signals in response to applied mechanical stress.
Inside an ideal quartz crystal, the electrical charge of the elements silicon and oxygen cancel each other out.
Proteins and most other bio-molecules are not at all “nonrigid” structures; in order to fulfill their functions, they possess the ability to dynamically change their shapes within certain limits. Huge amounts of very tiny magnetic crystals (magnetite crystals) have been found in the brain, and these could react very sensitively to the slightest changes in magnetic fields (20). Even though in today's popular media, pseudo-scientific and quasi-medical reports on the topic of geopathy are presented to the public, no “peer reviewed” medical journal indexed in MedLine had published statistically firm and sound provable evidence of geopathic effects on humans until most recently. Our first concepts how to address the geopathy phenomenon were based on the descriptions and personal discussions with the late Otto Bergsmann († 2004) and Alois Stacher (medical doctors, both from Vienna, Austria) and carried out in close co-operation with Adolf Wiebecke and his team (Salzburg and Oberalm, Austria). To gain reliable data, we paid careful attention to a number of issues influencing stability, reproducibility and safety (24, 30, 37, 45): Throughout the whole study, the very same GDV system was used.
As overlaying technical fields possibly influencing the results may have been present, we used sophisticated calibrated equipment to scan and record low and high frequency EMFs, potential acoustic noxae or vibrations during the whole study period, as well as a variety of additional physical parameters.
Those people who are already in the beginning stages of poor health may sense an added sensitivity for diseases of different kinds when staying longer on geopathic locations, as well as notice that healing processes may take longer than usual. As there are no reliable measuring instruments available so far, presently it makes sense to take advice from an experienced dowser.
If constructional arrangements are not possible before erecting a building or before starting a reconstruction, which is supposedly the case in most instances, there are also other practical possibilities: provided that there is a will to do so, it should be possible to move beds or desk seats, in order to get them out of interference zones.
Everyone can do something to prevent negative influences by sources that cause stress: anything that lowers stress in general also helps one deal with specific stress factors, and zones, from any origin.
Furthermore, many studies confirm that people who are “living healthily” – who manage their weight, refrain from smoking, enjoy the outdoors, participate in sports, etc., - have stronger immune systems and feel definitely less stress than their “unhealthy living” fellow men. The term “wellness“, which is composed of the ideals “well-being“ and “fitness“ as well as “life-style“ and “happiness“, to a modern point of view denotes a holistic concept of health. The follow-up costs associated with longer “chronic” stays on geopathic interference zones are probably enormous: As said before, geopathy is a matter of “burdened work places” leading to decreased ability of the employees to concentrate and to increased probability of employees' illnesses.
At the same time, we have already started experiments above different geological zones to test such key parameters contained in saliva, using biochemical assaying well accepted by orthodox medicine: various hormones, neuropeptides and immunological relevant substances are going to be tested ”non-invasively”.

When it comes to the topic of earth radiation, water veins and earth dislocations – the so-called geological disturbances – the layperson will usually associate this with hocus-pocus concepts such as “Dowsers,” often a man with large whiskers and an ironic smile.
Many people do not believe the dowser’s tale, and associate it with occult illusion – even if successes have been reported simply by moving a bed to a different area of the room.
I am sickened when I am told how people play tricks with the fears and hopes of seriously ill individuals.
I hope to make a contribution in this area so that we may have an objective discussion of this subject. We are born amid these natural manifold-radiating processes and there is no doubt that they are appropriate, important, healthy, and life protecting.
But there are also zones (areas) where radiation intensities are noticeably different from the norm. I might measure a level of radiation along a long-line, for example, and often the intensity will change suddenly, giving me an entirely different value. It is the task of science to connect one thing with another, and to analyze these connections. My practical experience is sufficient for me to know that concentrations of terrestrial radiation can be measured, and the findings will show noticeable differences from natural points of reference in the natural environment. I refer to my own personal experiences, with different measuring approaches, and do not pretend exclusiveness. That means: when you are above geological disturbances you can measure the distortion of the terrestrial magnetic field, similarly to that of magnetic steel. Here the compass is not the appropriate device because the declinations are so small that they cannot generate any substantial swing. This measurement approach is not appropriate for house and bedroom examinations, however, because the artificial distortions coming from steel used in construction, materials, metal fixtures, and even the bed itself, can cause a blur in the measurement or make a reading entirely impossible. I think the argument is exaggerated; that these anomalies of terrestrial magnetic fields above geological disturbances are sufficient to cause biological problems.
Ion measurements are extremely difficult and ambiguous since many factors in your house mix up the air ions even more than the terrestrial radiation is capable of. Within buildings, however, evaluations are almost impossible as the measurements within walls are highly unreliable.
One has to be very critical and attentive so as not to be taken in by too rash and incorrect conclusions.
The geo-rhythmogram measures the skin resistance of a person from hand to hand with simple electrodes and a fitting ohm-meter. When the skin resistance of a test person is normal, at 40 kilo ohm (Aschoff), the values can go up to 100, 200, or even higher when you are above zones of disturbance.

When that happens, all kinds of personal benefits ensue, including improved health and resiliancy, greater awareness, and the spiritual awakening that comes from tapping into one’s true nature. A quiet mind allows you to move beyond thought to the place where we all create, which is the space between our thoughts, and that’s a good place to be if you are a writer. The reason we experience stress, writer’s block, and other counter-productive behaviors and conditioned responses, is that we are stuck in our thoughts. A breath awareness meditation is a simple and universal approach – one in which the breath serves as the mantra. Continue this practice for at least 5 minutes, and continue for as long as it is comfortable.

I peel my upper lid from my lower lid, just enough so no one will notice, even though the only living creature nearby is a quail squatting outside my door, and I doubt he can see past his beak. Meditation is a science — the science of understanding the pathways of the brain and how they react to different situations, experiences and stimuli. Before we can have a purposeful meditation and yoga practice, we must first become a scientist fluent in the physics of the practice. Until we aquire this knowledge, sitting is ineffective — a waste of time, and detrimental to our well being due to the unnecessary pressure and expectation that breeds from our naivete. Practice may bring a mastery that mimics perfection, but practice also creates suffering if one does not know what they are doing and why they are doing it.
Attempting to sit in meditation without learned technique is comparable to placing a 2-year-old on the floor of the NYSE and expecting him to navigate the system on his own while conducting the trades for the day.
In this situation, not making more struggle would be grooming and teaching a person how to traverse the trading floor with grace, discerning the viable trades within the noise and creating a profit.
Before we can sit still and meditate like a monk in a Nepalese cave, we need to learn how bathe within ourselves, in the active moment, without thinking of the next action. Just ten minutes of meditation a day can contribute something powerfully positive to the world. Mr Hollow said the process requires between ten and thirty minutes a day, a quiet space and the ability to switch off all the other thoughts swirling around your head and just focus on kindness. Another way to cultivate this kindness is to run through a list of people in your life and send them a wish for kindness and peace.

Integrative medicine programs are including prescriptions for meditation coming from doctors at hospitals and clinics across the country. Abstract: Meditation has served as a traditional Eastern technique to transform consciousness and gain higher insight by focusing attention and introspectively observing one’s own mental processes. In seeking to deal with the stress and demands that come with the challenges of everyday life, many people now find solace in the momentary respite often attained through the practice of meditation. Various forms of meditation are known to exist, but most forms can be generally grouped into one of two classes for the simple purpose of distinction (see Table 1 below). Although they tend to differ from one another in terms of technique, philosophy, and outcome, recent research suggests that the various forms of meditation may share one important commonality: they appear to beneficial for health and well-being.
Originally derives from the Mahayana school of Buddhism found in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean culture.
A practice derived from the Theravada Buddhist tradition of Thai and Burmese culture, wherein the practitioner passively observes their present thoughts and bodily sensations with the goal of increasing equanimity, a state of passive acceptance that relies on awareness of these thoughts and sensations. The potential benefits of meditative practice may stem in part from its ability to help calm the mind and body. Another potential benefit of meditative practice is that it appears to be effective in improving one’s attention. Vipassana meditators sometimes relate experiences similar to those seen in deep states during intense training retreats, along with spontaneous body movements and perceived changes in their body image (Kornfield, 1979). These experiences that meditators report having during deep states suggest that they may be briefly experiencing an aspect of conscious awareness beyond that of their ordinary, everyday awareness.
This paper provides an overview of what neuroscience has tentatively learned so far about the meditating brain, and briefly discusses what these lessons could mean for mind-body health and the broader psychological quest to better understand conscious experience. The cerebrum can be divided into four individual lobes (frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital), each of which is specialized to handle certain behaviors. Directly behind the lower part of the frontal lobe is a cortical area that will be relevant to our discussion of certain forms of meditation. The inner reaches of the temporal lobe are the domain of the hippocampus and the amygdala, the two structures at the heart of memory and emotion, respectively. In the back of the brain is the occipital lobe, which contains the primary visual cortex, where signals from the eyes are processed. A SPECT scan proceeds in nearly the same way as a PET scan, except that instead of X-rays, the scanner detects the individual photons that are gradually emitted by different kind of tracer.
In addition to imaging techniques, it is possible to study the meditating brain by monitoring its electrical activity. To record a person’s brain waves by EEG, small metal disks capable of conducting electricity (known as electrodes) are attached to the scalp at various places around the head to detect the brain waves traveling up from the underlying cortical surface. There are five types of brain waves that are distinguished by their frequency, measured in cycles per second, or Hertz (Hz): Delta waves (1 – 3 Hz) have the slowest wave cycles, and commonly appear when we are in a deep sleep. With our survey of its territory complete, we shall now look at what goes on inside the brain during various forms of meditation, based on experimental findings.
As we saw in Section 1, several research findings suggest that people who practice TM can physiologically experience a calming effect in their body while meditating. At least one imaging study has been done to further explore the areas of the brain that may be active during TM (Jevning et al., 1996). Several types of Yoga meditation are known to exist, and to date, EEG and imaging studies have examined the brain’s activities during five types: Tantric, Kundalini, Sahaja, Nidra, and Iyengar.
Various forms of meditative prayer can be seen across several different religions, although it is the Christian-based form that has been the focus of two recent imaging studies. In the first study (Azari et al., 2001), 6 religious school teachers from a German Evangelist community received a PET scan while they attempted to briefly enter a religious meditative state by reciting the first verse of Psalm 23 in the Bible.
To explore the brain physiology of mindfulness meditation, several studies have directly focused on one of its sub-forms: Zazen, the sitting meditation of Zen Buddhism. In one of the earliest studies (Kasamatsu & Hirai, 1966), the brain wave activity of 16 Zen priests and 32 of their disciples was recorded during a period of Sesshin at a traditional Zen Buddhist training hall. If you continue to stay in these areas especially during sleep, then in the long term the stresses on our bodies will emerge as more serious conditions such as, diseases of the central nervous system, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), miscarriages, and cancer. Not only are the public more generally aware, but their governments funds aid and continuing research in to the matter.
Geopathic Stress is only one of them and it is becoming more difficult to gauge especially when the natural energy field is constantly changed and amplified by man-made electromagnetic fields. The phenomenon has been linked to insomnia, migraine, headaches, loss of balance, short -term memory loss, joint pain, cot death, infertility, miscarriages, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) and cancer. It has been known for a long time that when there is flowing water under a dwelling the inhabitants always feel more tired, are prone to premature aging and have a loss of vitality than those who sleep above neutral ground. These pathogenic locations defined in the report as, ‘earth radiation's evoked by a discontinuity of the normal physical parameters on the surface of the earth,’ and shortened to ‘Disturbed Zones’ are the subject of the research.
Such locations have been termed in China and many European countries as either ‘cursed’ or ‘cancer’ houses. The functioning hypothesis of the research was that geophysical characteristics of the surface of the earth are not uniform and that location dependent influences exist that can have a detrimental effect on both human and plant biochemical systems.
They were enlisted to independently dowse eight different locations and submit reports and diagrams of the strongest ‘Disturbed Zones’ found, together with a ‘Neutral Zone’ at the same location to enable them to carryout double blind experiments with volunteers at each selected location. It has no established scientific basis and there are no controlled trials to support its usefulness. It is an unorthodox technique which its proponents claim can diagnose allergic and other diseases.

Both, technical and biological systems can be influenced by EMFs, whereby numerous questions are still open, such as the concerning limits and the nature of physical interference fields (5). In nature, piezoelectrical dischargings can occur in some areas of geological “warps” containing quartz sand particles, and may be another plausible cause of geopathic stress effects (14). In spite of the fact that scalar waves in the field theory of Maxwell are usually neglected and set to zero, numerous experiments can lead to the conclusion that they do really exist and influence the human organism (5). The presence of pure physical interactions and in addition also of “physiologic sensors” located inside the body can be assumed. Internal protein dynamics can potentially affect protein function through a variety of mechanisms, some of which are tautological or obvious in nature while others are subtle and remain to be fully explored and appreciated (18). Previously described effects and descriptions of the pioneers (1, 3 and others) in this area unfortunately aren’t available in the standardized, scientifically acceptable nor reproducible format required for peer-reviewed medical journals, but rather as monographs. Being fascinated by its highly sensitive ability to detect stress effects, and also by the fact that this method is being used world-widely for manifold applications combining “pure physics” with complimentary evaluation of apparently high accuracy, we could reproducibly show using this method that different zones above ground do exhibit different effects on the human organism.
In addition to the promising data presented in numerous publications before, including our own, we are presently in the middle of an evaluation targeting a validation of GDV mean area-of-glow as a reliable measure of certain aspects of stress. All test persons had been informed about the GDV system and related safety issues, and about the fact that they may feel a slight “crawling” in their finger tips.
In practice, to capture one “static GDV image”, a very stable high voltage (10 kV, 1.024 Hz, square pulses) is pulsed on and off every 10 ms for a duration of 0,5 s.
For each test person and test phase, 50 single static measurements were performed (each finger tip was measured 5 times for 0,5 s). Before use, the GDV camera (kept inside the laboratory at constant room temperature) was switched on at least 30 minutes prior to measurement, and careful calibrations were performed. In addition to the calculation of descriptive data (mean, median, standard deviation etc.), we carried out Gaussian normality tests and subsequently used the paired two-sample t-test for dependent variables to determine whether there are significant differences between the 4 experimental sub-period results. The two measurement areas in the laboratory used for the experiments turned out to be indistinguishable from the aspect of technical fields and acoustic background noise, and the field strength and loudness levels present were far below existing (safety) guidelines. However, according to the Munich barn-experiments (66-68) and other independent investigations, only a low percentage of the people claiming to be successful dowsers are actually capable of making reproducible and reliable conclusions. This includes methods of stress-management and relaxation techniques, such as meditation, tai chi, guided imaginative journeying, and also certain hypnotherapeutic approaches (69-73).
Para-scientific reports about sleeplessness or higher rates of occurrence of different diseases have been with us for many years. In hospitals, observant physicians and nurses sometimes know from experience that there appear to be locations of sickbeds where, remarkably, many patients have a delayed recovery, or in especially blatant cases they may not recover at all. Wellness enhancing methods and applications aim to increase physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.
Individual performance on “interference reduced” zones increases, and all sides - superintendents, managers and employees - would possibly benefit. This can produce enormous costs for our social and health systems, and the hidden costs we can only suspect today.

It has been known for a long time that underground watercourses and geological dislocation produce spectacular radiation intensities.
Sensitive magnetometers can, however, easily make these distortions visible and can be defined as biologically effective by experts. This method is only justified when you know that artificial fields, from say – magnetic steel, are not in the area. The importance of these findings to the area above the disturbance is very much in dispute.
The results of these unqualified statements are that credulous laymen go over their bedrooms with a 30 dollar portable radio and assume there are water veins (and other phenomena of terrestrial radiation) whenever NBC or ABC gets bad reception, or a song by Elvis is jammed by noise. The much more exact electro- geobioscopy measures the skin resistance between one hand and acupuncture points on the other hand. Outside of the mindfulness and yoga communities in America, meditation is still not mainstream. If you’re a runner, try to do at least 10 to 15 minutes of meditation right before you run.
Meditation is like anything else — once you get over the initial difficulties, like trying to focus your mind, it becomes easy.
The first challenge is recognizing this, and then ceasing to fight it, because any resistance only serves to immobilize you further. You are literally squeezing your thought patterns down to a few, thereby dramatically increasing their intensity. The word mantra roughly translates as “instrument of the mind,” and its use helps to create the desired quieting of the mind. Get get comfortable and assume a good posture, either sitting down on the floor or a chair. Whenever you notice you are not observing your breath, simply bring your awareness back to your breathing. I can say with certainty that I experienced my share of writer’s block, frustration, and even outright anger because I was holding on too tight at times.
What I discovered was writing well is largely a process of remembering, and then extending those ideas further. I had the desire and the discipline, yet I couldn’t seem to be anywhere, but elsewhere.
Through this understanding, we can learn how to respond to these reactions and train the brain to focus. In order for them to work synergistically, they must be studied separately, understood individually and then, connected together. Once you start you find it’s actually easier to project kindness than hold resentment and anger. According to ABC News, the fund, which is collecting donations that will be divided between victims and their families, has already topped $10 million. Overnight, heroes were recognized and thousands of netizens donated to those people everything from pizzas to rooms with hot showers to free miles for airline flights. Some research now suggests that regularly practicing meditation may also benefit health and well-being by helping to calm the mind and body. My appreciation goes to Dylan Oaks for his help and support, and to Grant Lacquement for permission to cite his work and for lending useful resource material. The first class is often called concentrative meditation, in which attention is focused on a particular object, image, word, sound, or bodily process, such as breathing.
For example, volunteers who practiced a simple mantra (word)-based concentrative meditation technique twice a day showed a significant reduction in stress and negative mood after three months (Lane, Seskevich, & Pieper, 2007).

Following the philosophy of Zen Buddhism, the practitioner’s goal is to enter Satori, a state of enlightenment in which they become fully attuned to the reality both inside and outside their body, and they gain the ability to ask the appropriate questions concerning these realities.
Physiological monitoring of novice TM meditators has often revealed notable drops in their breathing rate, oxygen intake, and heartrate during meditation, along with a rise in their skin’s electrical resistance.
Recently, this question has intrigued the minds of neuroscientists, psychologists, Buddhist scholars, and even the Dalai Lama. To encourage exploration into the issue, His Holiness has hosted several research conferences in order to foster a dialogue between neuroscientists and Buddhist scholars, which may allow them to see where their respective disciplines intersect when it comes to exploring the nature of the mind (Barinaga, 2003; Knight, 2004). But before we can begin to explore the meditating brain, it is imperative to briefly survey the territory that we will be venturing into.
A basic map of the human brain, with each of its major lobes and cortices indicated (see text for details). At its base is the brainstem, a narrow stalk of tissue connected to the spinal cord that contains bundles of nerve cells, or neurons, which are vital for keeping us alive and conscious.
The frontal lobe plays a prime role in our ability to make decisions, plan our actions, and coordinate our movements. This area, which has a shape similar to that of a crescent moon, is known as the anterior cingulate cortex.
Toward its front is the somatosensory cortex, which receives and analyzes information relating to pain, pressure, touch, and temperature from all parts of the body.
The temporal lobe is also involved in hearing, as it contains the auditory cortex, the chief brain area for sound and speech processing. Upon receiving electrical stimulation of their visual cortex, people have reported seeing a bright flash of light or even swirls of color. These advances have been immensely valuable for medicine and neuroscience because they allow us to electronically peer through the skull and glimpse the brain as it partakes of behavior. Through a reaction with the chemicals found in neural tissue, the tracer is briefly retained by the brain and thereby provides a snapshot of the brain’s metabolic activity (Kolb & Whishaw, 1990, p.
The electrochemical activity of the billions of neurons found in the brain produces a continuous stream of electric waves that are emitted from the surface of the cerebral cortex. Brain waves are quite weak, registering only about a thousandth of a volt, so they must be amplified by the EEG before being recorded as a series of jagged lines on a moving paper chart. Theta waves (4 – 7 Hz) can also be present during sleep, usually when we start to feel drowsy and fall into a light sleep (Carlson, 1992, pp. It should be kept in mind that, unless noted, the experiments described in this section were done with novice and intermediate meditators who only have practiced for a relatively short time (anywhere from six months to four years).
In two studies (Aftanas & Golocheikine, 2001, 2003), EEGs were recorded from both novice (less than six months of training) and advanced (3 to 7 years) Sahaja meditators as they attempted inward focus to reach the blissful state.
A comparison of the brain wave activity of novice (STM, left column) and advanced (LTM, right column) Sahaja Yoga meditators, looking down from the top of the head. Compared to 6 non-religious control volunteers, the teachers showed higher activation in two areas of the frontal lobe associated with attention and the reflexive evaluation of thought (Figure 4). Averaged PET scan results from 6 Evangelist teachers engaged in meditative prayer, indicating increased cerebral blood flow in the forward and central regions of the frontal lobe (Azari et al., 2001). While we are asleep our body should be resting so it can repair body cells, fight infections and absorb nutrients from food.
In some schools children are moved at frequent intervals to avoid possible harmful effects. Women are more likely to be at risk from geopathic stress because their hormonal systems are more susceptible. While water running beneath a domestic dwelling should be avoided, a stream situated nearby and open to the sky will favourably discharge its negative energies harmlessly into the atmosphere. The aim of the report is to establish whether these ‘Disturbed Sites’ can produce statistically significant results to support the high degree of topicality the phenomenon is having in both main stream and alternative medical practices. A number of these were rejected when illnesses (circulation interference and infections) were discovered. Three silver electrodes were used placed on the forehead, palms and soles; a microprocessor based unit automatically produced the results. 1 The apparatus which he developed in the early 1970s used this principle and was the Vega test system.
The other contents of the box are an electrical source to provide a direct voltage of 0.87 volt through the patient, and a metal honeycomb in which ampoules can be placed in series with the circuit.

In addition to the discussed weak, broadband transversal electromagnetic and magnetic fields assumed to be originated in the ground, other forms of “energies” might exist, such as the often controversially discussed longitudinal scalar waves (5). There is growing experimental evidence that EMFs - at least those of technical origin – can have significant effects on cells and the entire organism. The effect was already discovered in 1824 by David Brewster and then experimentally elaborated by Pierre and Jacques Curie in 1880. According to Professor Konstantin Meyl (Furtwangen University, Germany), to a measurement technician scalar waves experimentally manifest as (antenna-)noise, a mixture of frequencies and wavelengths.
However, an extensive discussion of the origin and effects of radioactivity from the ground would go far beyond the scope of this manuscript.
In the case of resonance, information is being exchanged, energies are transmitted and, in fact, a component of balance between the sources is being formed (from personal communication, A. From post mortem brains, magnetite crystals of a size of 50 nm could be isolated, and their magnetic field could be measured. However, speculations are that the presence of magnetite crystals in brain might be understood as proof of a “submerged magnetic sensor”, similar to that of carrier pigeons or whales, theoretically easing human orientation and direction – thus a kind of “relict of evolution”. Nevertheless, this doesn’t lower their importance and relevance: Those pioneers in research on the geopathy phenomenon neither had the scientific-medical verifiability methods that are available today, nor was the time mature for such publications in the kind of medical journals we know today. Petersburg, Russia), as used in that work, delivers a number of sensitive and reproducible parameters (25-46). Although not yet completed, our tests appear to show that this is indeed the case: Parallel measurements of the diurnal time courses of GDV mean area of glow and of biochemical parameters collected from saliva (50-53) indicate that the diurnal curve progressions of GDV image areas and the levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) go parallel, whilst another accepted parameter of stress, saliva alpha-amylase, progresses just the opposite to IgA and GDV. Fifty-two voluntary test persons were measured at two locations, one of which has been identified by a group of six distinguished dowsers as being a “geopathic zone” and the other a “neutral zone”.
The electric field produces a visible gas discharge glow around the fingertip (Kirlian image), and such corona discharges have been recorded from each of the 10 fingertips of the test person repeatedly. Such zones might cause distress (“malignant stress”) even when present for a short time, but there are also reports that (not scientifically proven) energetically stimulating zones (“positive energy zones”) might exist, often also referred to as “power places”. During the planning stage in construction of new buildings, the geopathy phenomenon should be taken into account, so as to consciously design and construct buildings and rooms in a manner that, in areas where people will stay for longer periods of time, geopathic exposure should be as low as possible. Therefore it makes sense to consult with a competent building environment engineer who has experience, skill and expertise in these matters.
Interestingly, these positive lifestyle choices may also show up indirectly and in the subconscious: even technically derived EMFs seem to have much less of a negative effect with people who prefer such an “aware” way of life. It is clear that the accumulation of different factors stress can have strong effects on humans, animals and even plants. One of the tests, taken in a care center for children displaying behavioral problems, additionally showed, among other changes, that the incidence of bedwetting [nocturnal enuresis] definitely decreased when the “Wave” was present, and that the learning ability and the quality of sleep changed for the better (unpublished findings). When individuals feel better, they will perform better, and be healthier and happier at work too – facts that would also have economic consequences.
Parameters measured in saliva in parallel to GDV, such as IgA, alpha-amylase and cortisol, appear to change in level in direct relationship to the GDV mean area of glow.
From an extended vortex and field theory to a technical, biological and historical use of longitudinal waves. Once I move past this zone, the striking radiation intensity can decrease, giving me a “normal’ value again.
America is one of the most resilient countries in the world; the DNA of this country is made up of people that took risks and came from all over the world. I think programs like the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at University of Wisconsin-Madison are causing a ripple effect on bringing meditation to the masses.
The profit bestowed to an educated meditator is a contented life, with an abundance of efficiency, discernment and intention.
If that sounds like a tall order, then you might also like to know you only have to spend ten minutes a day to join in and make a difference. This basically means that kindness becomes the focus of our meditation for that particular day,” he said. He gave every parent daycare for their kids and a pre-K program, but didn’t stop there, and his devotion turned around the community.
A policeman, likely working long hours already, went to the store for them and delivered the milk to the house.
With encouragement from the Dalai Lama, neuroscientists are currently studying the meditating brain in order to learn more about how it works, how it changes, and how it can promote mind-body health. It is currently estimated that there are about 10 million American meditators, and hundreds of millions around the world (Walsh & Shapiro, 2006, p.
The second class is often called mindfulness meditation, which involves expanding attention in a passive way to allow broader awareness of one’s own mental processes.
To gain the insight needed to understand the answers, the practitioner practices meditating on a traditional riddle or puzzle (known as a koan). During an invited address at the 2005 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, His Holiness expressed an interest in the matter and encouraged neuroscientists to further explore the meditating brain in order to learn more about how it works, how it changes, and how it may lead to better therapies for mind-body health (Fields, 2006; Talan, 2006). During such states, many meditators can often have a profound experience of transcending the physical and mental boundaries of their own individual self.
Like the world at that time, several parts of the brain are pretty well understood, while other parts still harbor hidden, undiscovered valleys. Blossoming out of the back of the brainstem is the cerebellum, a convoluted mass of neural tissue that helps maintain body balance and muscle coordination.
In connection with this, the rear of the frontal lobe contains the primary motor cortex, one of the central brain areas involved in movement. In addition to being involved in some forms of attention and complex thought processing, some research suggests the anterior cingulate cortex is also involved in regulating some features of the autonomic nervous system, including heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure (Devinsky et al., 1995, pp. So far, three kinds of advanced technologies have been used to study the meditating brain: functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). When they interact with other subatomic particles, these positrons produce X-rays that can be detected, counted, and mapped using a digital scanner. These brain waves, as they are called, can be observed and recorded using a device called an electroencephalograph (EEG).
Advanced meditators with longer training histories seem to constitute a special case in terms of their physiology and depth of meditation, so we shall look take a closer look at them in Section 4.
Various EEG studies indicate that as they sit quietly with their eyes closed and focus on their mantra, many TM meditators show a steady pattern of alpha waves.
While the brain waves of the non-meditator are largely scattered across different frequencies during the ordinary waking state, those of the meditator show a consistent pattern of synchronization around 20 Hz during a deep meditative state (Ferguson, 1975).
Compared to control volunteers who merely sat and relaxed, the meditators showed increased flow in their frontal lobes, a finding consistent with the EEG patterns recorded in that same region (Wallace et al., 1971). Compared to relaxing control volunteers, meditators with an average of 1.5 to 2 years of training had produced higher amounts of alpha and theta activity along the brain’s central midline.
During a control period, the meditators did not observe their breaths and turned their attention away from the mantra by silently thinking up a list of animal names. Compared to the novices, the advanced meditators showed much more theta activity over their frontal lobes and the midline of their brains, and they reported more intense feelings of bliss.
Whereas novices show more alpha in the occipital and rear parietal lobes (lower left), advanced meditators show more theta in central region of the frontal lobes (top and center right) (Aftanas & Golocheikine, 2003, 2005). As they were guided to imagine the sensation of weight on various parts of their body, several areas including the frontal lobe and the anterior cingulate cortex were activated in the meditators’ brains. As we shall see in Section 4, a change in the brain as a result of meditation training is one of the things that may distinguish advanced meditators from novices. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all its energy just to keep its vital organs going.
Reports from other countries such as Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia indicate that they too have been taking notice.
Geopathic stress - or harmful earth rays - is natural radiation that rises up through the earth and is distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by underground streams, certain mineral concentrations and fault lines.
In order to rule out possible influences of man made electromagnetic or microwave disturbances at each location an independent report from an electromechanical engineer was requested for each chosen site.
Other participants were also used from the Outpatients Department for Physical Therapy in the Rehabilitation Centre, Grobming and from the Surgery of Dr. Further, he placed extracts of medicines into series in the circuit and claimed that useful medicines could thus be detected.
A dial with 100 scale divisions shows 100 when the connected resistance is 0, and shows 0 when the connected resistance is infinity.
7 This paper describes as many false positive results as true positive results and subsequently counted twice in some instances, thus expanding the series.
Hacker: Head, IGGMB - Research Institute for Frontier Questions of Medicine and Biotechnology, Landeskrankenhaus Salzburg, University Clinics of the Paracelsus Private Medical University, Salzburg Federal Clinics (SALK), Salzburg, Austria. In recent years, the expressions “geopathic stress” and “geopathic interference zones” have been accepted internationally to describe the phenomenon. At present, for most aspects contained herein, only hypotheses can be formed - and there are many of them. Certain ions and metals moved by water can – depending on concentration, composition and flow rate – can indeed lead to geoelectricity. If thus in a pipe a hydrodynamic flow vortex is produced, an electric and a magnetic vortex, the potential vortex and the eddy current, are the result (5). Although also present in tourmaline, topaz, cane sugar and Rochelle salt (sodium potassium tartrate tetrahydrate), the effect became particularly known for quartz. In the case of plasma waves, they are charged particles, and in the case of sound waves, they are air particles.
Inside our body, there are the “intrinsic” (internal) structures and molecules of the organism, which are either “resonating” because of their physical nature (as with stringed instruments: compare the vibration of the string alone versus string with resonator sound box), or create a certain frequency themselves. Nonetheless, what these people achieved, and their courage, as well as of the publishers who rightly published their works, deserve high credits. Although successful in some areas addressed, the effects found had not the high statistical significance required, and the methodology used was not a generally accepted one, guaranteeing medical relevance and reproducibility.
In other words, a higher GDV mean area of glow value corresponds to a higher IgA level (to be understood as an sign for lower stress or relaxation), and a lower GDV mean area of glow value can be understood as an indication for higher levels of alpha-amylase, i.e.
In the specific setup for the static GDV images used in our study, the overall GDV image area values calculated are to be understood as mean values of 50 single finger GDV images in total, per test period. Such areas have been dowsed within some churches and other buildings constructed centuries or often thousands of years ago. Mental components are just as important: the more someone lives consciously, and even optimistically, in a state of positive thought, the less external stress factors can influence the person somatically. The results of our research are of great relevance for “wellness-centers” too: sustainable success in relaxation and stress management methods is essentially dependent upon the particular location of sleeping and of therapy beds. The number of staff on sick leave will probably decrease in the long run, when all employees work at geopathically (and otherwise also) more balanced work places. Petersburg Division of the Russian Ministry of Culture, State Editing and Publishing Unit ‘Kultura’, Petersburg, pp 58–83 (1999). After hundreds of tests, I can say: With special ion meters (electronic instruments that measure the number of small ions in the air) you can detect increased measurement values above the area of a disturbance – particularly in the range of positive air ions. My electro-geobioscopic measurements use test devices that are well tested in medicine: Aschoff, MORA, and Vega.
I think Americans need to adopt a practice that’s been shown to increase resilience and compassion. Or the work that Congressman Tim Ryan is doing with promoting the positive effects of meditation.
They should be meditating before work, and they should be doing some meditation during their lunch break to stay focused.
We respond more and react less, because we (the mind) have learned how to direct the brain as it keeps the trading floor open all day, every day. Turn any chore or repetitive action into a sensory overload, and see if you can separate each sense from the other. Your kind thoughts about others set you off on a good and peaceful path for the day,” Mr Hollow said. In this paper, a basic overview of the latest findings relating to the possible brain correlates of meditation is presented, and the implications of these findings for health and the psychological quest to better understand subjective conscious experience are discussed. In other words, one expands their inner awareness and introspectively observes their thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations. Perched above the brainstem and the cerebellum is the largest part of the brain, called the cerebrum.
When the motor cortex is damaged, a person can have difficulty making fine movements with their fingers and limbs (Kolb & Whishaw, 1990, Ch.
Based on the idea that the brain regions which have the most oxygen-rich blood are the ones that are the most neurally active at the moment, BOLD measurements allow us to estimate the level of neural activity in a particular brain region during a specific behavior. Similar to fMRI, PET follows the idea that the brain areas with the highest amounts of blood are the most neurally active at the time (Kolb & Whishaw, 1990, pp.
Alpha waves (8 – 12 Hz) are typically present during a state of relaxed awareness, when our minds are not actively engaged in deep thought.
While many of the volunteers became relaxed to the point where they would fall asleep, the steady alpha and theta patterns seen on the meditators’ EEGs suggests that they were able to enter and maintain a mental state close to the boundary of wakefulness and sleep, yet still remain awake. Compared to this control period, more neural activity was seen during the meditation in the anterior cingulate cortex.
In contrast, the novices showed more alpha waves over their occipital lobes and the rear part of their parietal lobes (Figure 3). Claims and counter claims abound regarding devises to achieve this, leaving the public in total confusion. The wave lengths of the disturbed natural radiation can seriously affect our health, causing cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) infertility and miscarriage. It may surprise you therefore, that in many European countries, Germany and Austria in particular, one of  the first questions the doctor may ask is about the  location of your bed and how long have you been sleeping there. The major confounding factor -- that of moist skin in sick, worried subjects, and dry skin in relaxed, healthy subjects -- is not eliminated. 9 Proponents of the system use a smoke screen of illusion which includes convoluted scientific jargon and unsubstantiated claims of efficacy. Overlapping, or a “build up” of resonance effects are also part of the geopathic phenomenon. In the case of resonance, both sources attract each other, which can be explained and calculated by the occurrence of field changes during that process (5).
Furthermore, one can acquire “corona diagrams” in the manner of complementary medicine from the individual allocation of the “corona” gas discharge from the different fingertips, following the principles of the energy–meridian theory and of acupuncture. In randomized manner, four test phases were examined: “Geopathic zone” with and without a blindly mounted “Wave” device, and “neutral zone” with and without the “Wave”.
The glass plate surface of the GDV camera was cleaned using alcohol frequently, and it was taken care that none of the test persons had wet hands.
The corona diagrams directed into a weakening of the energies of the immune system and the pineal organ (which might be understood as an indication of possible changes of the melatonin production) (compare to: 57-60), the cardiovascular and the urinary system in many of the test persons. In the following, we will briefly show what addressing geopathy do affect health care facilities, public places, and economy. By inference, if these results are applied to public facilities in general, the “Wave” could probably have a number of desirable effects in schools, offices, banks, supermarkets, etc.
Contrarily, at “highly burdened” workplaces, performance will decrease, discontentment grows, and the vulnerability to diseases and the resulting rise of employees' illnesses will be greater. Ursula DEMARMELS-HACKER, for her love and support, and for abandoning many evenings and weekends of togetherness to find time for investigation and creation of this manuscript. This inner focusing can help filter out extraneous distractions that can potentially interrupt the exploration of higher mental states and the attempt to gain insight. Beta waves (13 – 29 Hz) appear when we are actively thinking, alert, and attentive (Schneider & Tarshis, 1995, pp.
These patterns are often recorded from electrode sites located over the frontal lobes and near the brain’s midline (Wallace et al., 1971). In order to better grasp the concept underlying this phenomenon, we might consider the following illustrative example: Let’s say that we simultaneously recorded the EEG activity from two different regions of our brain, and then compared them afterward to see if they show any similarity. In the late stages of the meditation, the frontal, parietal, and temporal lobes became active. This suggests that the achievement of slower brain waves may partly be a function of meditation training history, a possibility we shall examine further in Section 4.
Finally, as they attempted to generate a mental representation of their self, areas surrounding the superior parietal lobule lit up with activity. From an incredible range of gadgets offered there are many tales about their ineffectiveness or of making the receiver feel much worse. These questions are routinely asked not only by several thousand doctors, but also many cancer specialist hospitals will recommend a Geopathic Surveyor or Geobiologist as they are often called to investigate your home before deciding on a course of therapy or reaching for the prescription pad.
The third paper describes the change in skin resistance after vagotomy in rabbits and presents no statistical analysis of the findings.
Furthermore, technically generated EMFs are present on every place on earth; their likely influence on our health is presently the subject of intensive worldwide research. Whittaker already in 1904 showed mathematically that the known and accepted Laplace Wave Equation of the year 1787, besides indicating transversal electro-magnetic waves, also describes longitudinal scalar waves (15). The magnetite-particles could also be visualized and further analyzed using a high-definition transmission electron microscope. A third marker, saliva cortisol, although displaying its very own rhythmicity, also appears to fit into the concept that GDV could be reliably used for biophysical stress measurement (Hacker and Augner, unpublished results). Altogether, more than 137,000 individual fingertip GDV corona images were captured, interpreted by means of computer-aided image analysis and analyzed in detail using bio-statistics.
For further calculations and analyses, the GDV Meridian Analysis and the GDV Diagram software (both with version no. The latter device had been mounted or de-mounted in another room at an upper floor, and neither the test persons nor the examiners could see if the device was present or not. The test persons were advised to keep their fingers still and relaxed during measurements and not to apply undue pressure when putting their fingers onto the glass plate at an angle of approximately 30-degrees to the instrument axis (28). If present for a prolonged time, however, eustress may soon turn to distress and thereby suppress the immune system. We would therefore suggest using a terminology towards a “more geopathic” and “geologically more neutral” zone in this context. Johanns-Hospital, so far, more than 50 “Wave” devices have been installed to harmonize critical locations - especially in the intensive care unit and in the entire surgical ward), and at other major hospitals (e.g.
The aggregate economic success of a company or institution can very well be in the balance; responsible (and visionary) managers should take heed of the results of our studies in their plans and act accordingly.
Petersburg Division of Russian Ministry of Culture, State Editing and Publishing nit, ‘Kultura’, pp 84–108 (1999). The boundaries between these two classes should not be considered fixed, however, as some forms of meditation can and do blend techniques from both classes (Goleman, 1988). This suggests that, as they meditate, the brain waves of TM practitioners tend to gradually slow down and approach frequencies that are typically associated with low mental arousal, which would be consistent with a calming effect. Most of the time, during our ordinary conscious state, we would find that these two EEGs are a mixed-up bunch of waves scattered across several different frequencies, with little to no similarity at all.
This suggests that brain regions associated with attention and control of autonomic nervous system are involved in this Yoga type.
Monitoring of the meditators’ brain waves further revealed increases in theta activity during the meditation, and the PET scans indicated a higher release of dopamine, a neurochemical sometimes associated with feelings of pleasure (Schneider & Tarshis, 1995, p. In addition, an inverse relationship was observed between the blood flow in the frontal lobe and the blood flow in the superior parietal lobule, such that as the flow in one increased, the flow in the other decreased (and vice-versa). There are many products on the market that claim to cure some or all geopathic zones of its noxious energy. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all it’s energy just to keep  vital organs going.
The search, using both dowsing methods to locate geopathic energies and scientific instruments to detect man made electromagnetic energies will  determine whether your illness is linked to geopathic stress electromagnetic stress or both. Frequencies in between about 0,1 Hz up to the GHz-range are being suggested in public literature. The most exciting result of those experiments was that, most of the regions of the brain appear to contain about five million biogenous “single-domain” magnetite crystals per gram wet weight on average, and the meninges (pia and dura mater) contain even more than 100 million.
The accordant calculations and projections were done interactively using specific software for analysis, based on the energy-emission-analysis according to Mandel (47-48), the Su-Jok-System of acupuncture (49) and clinical data of thousands of test persons from the St.
In order to minimize chronobiologic influences to a sensible degree, the experiments were carried out only in forenoons, and also in that respect, phase randomization in time was an important prerequisite (24). As already stated above, technical fields and noxae [nocent influences] of different kinds are present everywhere on earth. In the workplace and in the home: this is only part of the whole picture, because “ready to go” or rested and productive employers and employees should also be able to benefit at peace and harmony at home.
The vibration and hum as I turn it on, how the vacuum resists as it stumbles across a crumb on the carpet, and the sound of the crumb as it is chewed inside the canister. Such a panel could vastly improve the daylight cooling of buildings, cars and other structures by reflecting sunlight back into the chilly vacuum of space. The cortex only 3 to 5 millimeters thick, but it takes up more than a third of the brain’s volume because it is folded like the shell of a walnut into a maze of hills and valleys. However, if we repeated the process with a TM practitioner while he or she was in a deep state of meditation, we might find that their two EEGs show a fair degree of similarity, with the two wave patterns appearing to be in close alignment with each other (Figure 2). Most of these claims are quite dubious and do not stand up to the most rudimental scientific testing. As we could show, the “Wave” device in fact can help, and its exceptional promise as a preventive measure is of great interest. Fortunately there are now a growing number of dowsers that are equipped with scientific monitoring instruments that can test such claims.
To locate geopathic stress dowsers visit land, offices and homes where they  seek  the location of underground streams, geological faults or the earth’s natural grid lines. However, for thousands of years people from all over the world have been finding underground water for wells and mineral deposits to mine by dowsing methods.
Remember it’s the energy from the water and other artefacts that they first respond to as it rises from deep beneath the ground to the surface.
