Jan Bohuslav Sobota has died, while half a world away; I was preparing these etchings of Spawned Salmon and dedicating them to Jan, the lover of fish.
Picture the scene before you: It’s a late night in Prague, before the Marlboro man dominated every street corner, even before the neon of casinos and the vulgarity of Golden Arches assaulted the nightwalkers’ eyes at all hours – back when darkness, oh yes, that beautiful comforting velvety, all-enveloping and blessed dark, broken only by the moon, stars and late night taxis, still ruled the streets after the sun went down. 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. Please scroll down the articles on this page for a more scientific understanding of geopathic stress. There is also an interesting piece of research at the end of the page about the credibility of Vega testing for geopathic stress.
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. 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. 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. Piezoelectricity is the ability of certain crystals and certain ceramic materials to generate electrical and magnetic signals in response to applied mechanical stress.
For detection geopathic stress, we have followed the design of a randomized, double-blinded non-clinical trial (54-44), following the ethical guidelines of the expanded Helsinki Declaration (56). 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. 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. Naturally, the negative effects of geopathic stress zones also have considerable commercial impact.
Measurements of the VHF field strength often show a drop in the measurement curve when taken above disturbances.
One has to be very critical and attentive so as not to be taken in by too rash and incorrect conclusions. Many manuals say that locating geological disturbances by using the VHF field strength is child’s play.
Gravels, with just the right flow of fresh water running up through stones of the right size are but a tiny portion of the riverbed.  The salmon must struggle past cities and sewer pipes, farms and irrigation systems, dams and turbines, fishermen and waterfalls – just to reach the streams of their birth. 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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
In later stages, it my not be impossible though that chronic stress caused by geopathic locations may finally even forward the development of malignant disease. This includes methods of stress-management and relaxation techniques, such as meditation, tai chi, guided imaginative journeying, and also certain hypnotherapeutic approaches (69-73). As preliminarily presented in this book, we have already obtained data underlining the validity of GSV as a reliable instrument for measuring stress, provided that all pre-cautions are taken into account and that well-trained and experienced persons use it.

If geopathic stress is suspected, it makes sense to move away from the source or to think about dealing with the threat.
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. 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. From the results of our studies it can be concluded that geopathic zones do cause stress in nearly all of the persons tested. 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. 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). 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. 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 recent years, the expressions “geopathic stress” and “geopathic interference zones” have been accepted internationally to describe the phenomenon.
For us, the mean “area-of-glow” was the best possible means for sensitively indicate stress. 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. 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.
Farmers would occasionally find their possessions and take them as souvenirs, unaware that the last Indians still lived in their midst. Damn the cost; it’s who we are and the last material vestiges of soulful encounters with our elders – one’s whose stories are slipping inexorably away, thinned by each passing year and generation. When experimentally irradiated by EMFs of frequencies in between about 1-2 GHz, they displayed a changing of conformation, respectively changing in their manner of oscillation, even when only very low field strengths had been applied (19). 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 “Wave” device investigated in our study could therefore, by its balancing effect, not only aid in lowering of stress, but also be understood as a tool for disease prevention.
Concerning the “Wave” device especially interesting is the fact, that it substantially reduces stress in people on “neutral zones” too, a finding which indicates that there is no real “neutral zone” existing. They may include health, peace of mind, answered prayers, protection, a close-knit and loving family, added physical strength, ability to make wise decisions, a spirit of thankfulness, a closer relationship with Jesus, success in soul-winning, an old car kept running longer, etc.C. Using that particular aspect, we were able to indicate which organ systems of the body might be affected by geopathic stress. 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).
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.
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. 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. You take time to grieve and then pick yourself up by your bootstraps (by God – get a grip) and get on with it (Rome wasn’t built in a day you know).

Strejcek was still working, but it was all coming to an inevitable end, as he grew shaky of hand and hard of seeing.
It is an awesomely dangerous venture to take God's own money, which He has earmarked for the saving of souls, and use it for our own personal budgets. My kids now live far away so I cannot make up for time lost before.                     Well, isn’t it a good thing that our Father in Heaven is not an absentee Dad. 16.   Faithful stewardship involves not only my proper handling of money, but also the amount of time I spend in activities such as prayer, witnessing, study of the Scripture, and helping others. Some passages in the Bible are referred to by some Pastors as taken from myths or stories at the time that they were written. If a person you care for ever poses this statement -----  “ If you want me (or love me) you need to do ‘this or that’.” ----- then walk away and don’t look back.
Many people over the centuries have tried to explain them away in the context of human experiences and logic.
I placed him on his knees next to his bed with his hands folded and I uttered some simple prayers while he listened.
Laughingly I think he is just trying to delay bed time but it is becoming a habit.            Thinking about this I wonder how many of you has stopped praying or just don’t find time in your busy lives to do it.
When we were children praying was simple but as we grew up most of us memorized long prayers to repeat to the Lord. Even the “Lord’s Prayer” or as it is called “The Our Father” was memorized out of scripture or a prayer book and repeated at bed time or in Church.
Praying is important as Christians but it does not need to be memorized, complicated, long, repeated, or burdensome. What is important is that you have a conversation with God.            Through our scripture you will see many examples on how to pray. 5-8 (NAB): “When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them.
But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
5-7(NLT): But if you pray to God and seek the favor of the Almighty, an if you are pure and live with integrity, he will surely rise up and restore your happy home. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.”1 Corinthians, vs. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. 1-32:       The Birth of Jesus 1 At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire.
2 (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census. Jesus who was residing in Heaven with and in God looked down on the people and made a conscience decision to take on a human form and go through life as we do and then die an agonizing death on the cross as a sin offering for all of us. Let’s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to).
Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment. To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God.
I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. If your intent is to take it to Church or Bible study, get one that is on a more personal size and is not too heavy or bulky. They will be taken from the NIV translation utilizing an outline from Evangelism by John Ritchie.
