Don’t be a ‘praying beggar’!

Many religious people believe that prayer is about pleading for miracles or flattering a supernatural being into taking pity on them. They assume that some higher power is able and willing to intervene directly in earthly affairs.

A more enlightened approach is to reject the notion that prayer is for acquiring things or having our problems solved for us by an outside force. Instead it is to help hasten our personal growth.

All change starts from within. We get inspiration not in the form of miraculous interventions, but ideas, ideas that bring motivation and solutions and guide us towards constructive actions that bring the right results.

Prayer changes the person who prays

When you pray, don’t ask for changes in your circumstances, but in yourself. Prayer brings about changes in the character of the person who prays:

  • Our perceptions The world becomes a more peaceful and loving place, reflecting back the changes taking place within us.
  • As we incorporate more of the higher qualities into ourselves, we are able to make a real difference to our own and other people’s lives.

Pray alone, in private

Spend regular quiet time in prayer and contemplation. Go to a quiet place, put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and close it behind you. Focus on noble ideas, ideas of truth that come from the heart. Invite your Inner Power to guide you. You don’t have to pray to an outside ‘presence’ unless you want to – ask your inner self for ideas and for the means to actualize them.

The AcuPearl Range

AcuPearl – advanced technology for optimum health and peace of mind.

The AcuPearl Painless Mk 3 (for Pain Management and Tissue Regeneration)

The Painless model supports the body’s natural self-repair mechanisms to soothe pain, relieve discomfort and encourage tissue and injury regeneration without the risk of harmful side effects. It is operated by a single button. The operation levels, frequencies and resonant harmonics are precisely controlled to maximize the effects.

The Painless can be worn on the wrist under a sweatband, kept in a pocket, placed directly over the body over a painful area or over an acupuncture point. It works just as well through clothing.

The PEARL therapeutic technology is based on:

  • Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields (PEMF) – clinically proven to offer many health benefits including higher energy levels, pain reduction, accelerated wound healing, improved blood oxygenation, better sleep patterns and many more.
  • Adaptive Resonance (Phase Conjugate Adaptive Resonance) – technology unique to AcuPearl which adds potency and targeted action to PEMF.
  • Pulsed  low intensity light – proven to work at cellular level.

It has proved effective with a range of conditions, including arthritic pain, tennis elbow, backache, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, headaches, menstrual pains and muscle sprains.

Regular daily use over several weeks may be required for long-term benefit and chronic conditions.

Inexpensive, effective and simple to use, the Painless is made from tough ABS plastic with internal electronics of robust solid state design. Drug-free and non-invasive, it comes with full instructions, including charts showing the major acupoints.

All Mk3 AcuPearls are fully rechargeable using a USB lead (supplied).

The AcuPearl Chillout Mk3 (for calmness, sleep issues, stress and anxiety)

The AcuPearl  Chillout draws on the same PEARL technology. It was specifically developed to assist with emotional anxiety and stress. It helps calm the mind, relax the body, establish a good sleep patterns and generally revitalise body and mind.

In addition to background programs that work 24/7 it has two user-selectable options that can be used any time:

  1. Calm – for acute and chronic stress and anxiety and helps promote a calm and quiet mind.
  1. Sleep – helps establish good sleep patterns and relieve sleep disorders caused by emotional stress.

Its efficacy has been demonstrated with a wide range of states including insomnia, fatigue and anxiety.

It can be worn on the wrist under a sweat band, on a neck cord (supplied) or placed anywhere on the body or in a pocket. It also works through clothing.

The AcuPearl C-Balance Mk3 (Non-NFC version)

The AcuPearl Circadian Balance is probably the most sophisticated device of its type in the world today. Circadian refers to the 24 hour body clock. The C-Balance tracks the body’s natural rhythms day and night and synchronises them in accordance with known principles of health and wellbeing. It also helps establish a more harmonious balance to counteract the negative effects of harmful electromagnetic frequencies.

The non-NFC version is a stand alone unit based on AcuPearl technology. It runs automatic background programs, has four user-selectable programs:

  1. Calm – helps promote a calm and quiet mind. For acute and chronic stress, anxiety and general wellbeing.
  2. Sleep – helps establish good sleep patterns and relieve sleep disorders caused by emotional stress.
  3. Ease – for easing away aches and pains, tissue and cellular regeneration. Regular daily use over several weeks may be required for chronic conditions.
  4. Revitalise – provides an energy boost when needed to combat tiredness and lethargy.

In addition C-Balance offers two major advances in wellbeing technology:

  • Time activated therapeutic programs which synchronise with the body’s circadian rhythms and brain wave frequencies.
  • Personalised scanning – the world’s smallest device with unique scanning technology which calibrates with the user’s state of wellbeing and attunes to each individual.

The C-Balance helps maintain circadian rhythms and protects from the effects of harmful EMF. It may be worn on the wrist under a sweatband, kept in a pocket, attached to a belt of key ring or worn on a neck cord or chain (leather cord supplied). It may also be placed directly on the body over a painful area or acupuncture point. It works just as well through clothing. All Mk3 AcuPearls are fully rechargeable using a USB lead (supplied).

The AcuPearl C-Balance Mk3 (NFC version)

The AcuPearl C-Balance Mk3 (NFC version) is the top of the range unit. It offers all the features described above and has additional features accessed by means of an app downloaded to an Android drive, NFC-compatible mobile phone.

In addition to the background programs, the NFC version has three user selectable programs – CALM, SLEEP and EASE (see above) the PRGx setting that can be set to additional programs through the app.

  • Rejuvenate – to provide a boost when energy is depleted.
  • Shock – to support recovery after shock or trauma.
  • Inflame – to aid with inflammation.
  • Travel – balances disturbances to the body caused by high speed and high altitude travel and can prove useful for travel sickness.

The app is automatically set to local time and also provides information on the run cycle as it is in operation.

(Before ordering, check your phone has NFC technology).

AcuPearl Sports ‘Watch’ Mkl

acup-sportsThe AcuPearl Sport is specifically developed for aiding the body and mind before, during and after physical exertion. It is best worn around the wrist but may also be kept in a pocket.

It offers two types of program:

Firstly, automated background programs which run automatically at a regular intervals over a 24 hour period with the aim of handling stress and improving wellbeing generally to aid with sports performance. These background programs can be set to three levels of intensity.

Secondly, manual programs that the user can select and use as and when required. These help body and mind to prepare for exercise, maintain focus during exercise, calm and recuperate after exercise and soothe aches and pains.

  • Pre: designed to be used before exercise to prepare exercise and exertion.
  • Go: helps maintain a focused mind and flowing body energy while exercising. Use at the start of exercise and at intervals during activity.
  • Post: used after exercise to help calm the mind, release metabolic toxins and accelerate recovery.
  • Soothe: To soothe nerve pain, reduce its intensity and help relax muscular and mental tension. The Soothe program also incorporates a ‘rejuve’ element to aid the natural rejuvenation of damaged tissues. Soothe can be used in most instances where discomfort is experienced and is generally applied over the painful area itself.

Mk1 AcuPearls are powered by a CR1632 lithium battery.

Adventure before dementia

Saw a sign on the back of a camper van today. It read ‘adventure before dementia.’ It made me think. I know people who have played it safe, stuck to the same profession for forty years and even worked in the same building for several decades. Some of them are retired now and living very comfortably on a good pension where they do the garden, read the newspaper, go out for Sunday lunch and watch the detective dramas on ITV3.

My life has been completely different. I’ve worked as a market researcher, university lecturer, hypnotherapist and life coach, tutor trainer, training manager, tour guide, marketeer and mail sorter. I’ve pursued by interests in health, spirituality, happiness, energy medicine and wellbeing to the nth degree. I’ve visited every inhabited continent except Africa, stood for Parliament, taught in Moscow, North Carolina, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. I lived in Brazil for a while, have been married three times, had four beautiful children (all grown up now and thriving) and published eight books. All of this while having undiagnosed Aspergers!

I’m 64 now, still taking risks and show no signs of letting up. There’s no sign of dementia (yet), but still plenty of adventure! And I hope it stays that way until the day I die!

How to Books, 2010




I’m often struck by the spectacle of people who’ve just suffered some tragedy – like a close relative being murdered – being placed in front of the TV cameras and being asked one of the most stupid of stupid questions – how do you feel? Soon after the event, they’re usually too shocked to say anything sensible. Often they just burst into tears.

Sometimes they express their anger and their desire for vengeance. They say things like ‘how can I sleep until the killer has been brought to justice?’ or ‘If I could get my hands on them I’d tear them limb from limb…..’ They tell how they can’t sleep, their health has suffered, they can’t work because of the worry that consumes them – a natural response to shock in the short term, but in the longer term a sign they haven’t really dealt with it.

Then time passes, the culprit is caught and the same people say, ‘How can I ever forgive them?’ or ‘No punishment can repay what they did.’ ‘Some even say, ‘I don’t want to forgive? Why should I?’

We all know revenge can’t bring back one’s loved ones or change the facts if a terrible accident has taken place.

Fortunately most of us are never in that situation.  We suffer various lesser setbacks, we perhaps feel someone has cheated on us, stolen from us or done us harm in some other way. Our instinct is to try and get our own back, ‘I’ll show him’, get angry, seek revenge or perhaps cut them out of our lives completely.

But there’s a problem – several problems in fact.

  • Anger clouds or judgement. We find ourselves doing unwise things, and sometimes inadvertently sabotage our own well-being.
  • Anger, bitterness, resentment etc. make us ill; they flood the body with toxic stress chemicals, cause the muscles to tighten, leading to physical problems.

It’s said that acid only harms the vessel that contains it.

There’s an old Chinese saying, ‘If you’re going to seek revenge, you’d better dig two graves.’

But let’s not be glib about this – forgiveness isn’t easy. It’s all too easy to say you’ve forgiven because it’s what people want to hear, even though you’re doing it through gritted teeth and deep down you haven’t forgiven at all. And the reason Oscar Wilde gave to forgive isn’t very helpful either. He said, ‘Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys then so much.’

Why forgive

Here are four reasons to start with:

  • When we forgive we heal our pain. Our bodies feel different – less tense. The person or event we’ve forgiven becomes a memory, no longer charged with emotion. You’ll be able to meet the other person as if the situation had never happened between you.
  • Everything we give out boomerangs back on us. Fear and anger come back to hit us. But when we forgive, when we radiate positive energy, negativity dissolves and the boomerang effect doesn’t take place.
  • Forgiveness is not about condoning wrong doing. It is not saying you’re glad it happened or that you would like someone else to change, but about taking total responsibility for your own life.  I often hear people say, ‘Why should I forgive after what they did? How can anyone forgive that?’ But that’s not the point – you don’t do it for them – you do it for you. You do it to get rid of the harmful ‘stuff’ you’re carrying around with you.
  • Above all, you open up the possibility to creating a better future. When you forgive, a transformation takes place in your life. You let go and move on. It brings space into your life for new thoughts and new experiences.


To say, ‘Just forgive,’ is too glib. There are times when we’re not ready to forgive; when the wrongs we believe we have suffered are too great. We must ask ourselves if we would really like to be able to forgive, if it is something we would like to move towards?

Simply having the intention to forgive – wanting to – sets you on the way to making it happen. That’s why I feel sad for those people who say ‘I’ll never forgive, I don’t want to forgive, why should I?’

The way forward is to create more understanding, more compassion, more wisdom into ourselves. Then over time the pain will ease and the tension gradually fades away.

When we express the willingness to forgive, we’re taking a major step towards letting go.


Examine your beliefs about forgiveness. If you believe that you have to get your own back for every wrong that has ever been done to you or it’s a sign of weakness, think about this carefully. Is this belief serving you well?

Work on eliminating unforgiving thoughts. Listen to your self-talk. Tell yourself you don’t want to think this way. Release the energy you’ve been putting into holding on to blaming thoughts.

Use Affirmations – establish in your mind positive attributes such as love, compassion and forgiveness.

Affirm: ‘I now establish forgiveness in my consciousness. Perfect order is now established in my mind. I am at peace.’


Make a mental image of the person with whom you are angry and send them love. ‘From this moment on, I send you love and light.’  Surround this image of them in pure white light. ‘See’ yourself as connected to this person. If you cannot yet forgive, imagine yourself looking down on the situation from a higher perspective. Very often the Earth-bound self cannot forgive, but the Higher Self can.


Inwardly or expressly thank those who made life difficult and tested you. They have contributed to your life’s purpose. If you respond wisely, they have aided you in your purpose and your growth.

Stop taking those petty actions of revenge. Extend your generosity and compassion to all. And hardest of all – go to that person and ask forgiveness, or do it in your imagination (they’ll pick it up one way or another).

The Spiritual Perspective on Forgiveness

What about you? What do you need to be forgiven for?

In order to forgive you must have done several things:

  • Judged.
  • Blamed.
  • Experienced fear (or become defensive through fear).

Once you stop judging and blaming, forgiveness is no longer an issue. If you had never judged or blamed another, there would be nothing to forgive.

And don’t forget to forgive yourself – you deserve it as much as anyone else! If you’ve been judging another harshly, you too must be forgiven.

True forgiveness is a permanent state of being, not just an occasional act. Let go and let the universe handle it through the natural Law of Cause and Effect. Others will have to face up to their responsibilities and learn from them, just as we do. We need do nothing. Lessons will be learned. Justice will be done.

Wouldn’t it be good to let those people on the telly have the good news? It would save them a lot of suffering.

5 reasons to forgive

Practise forgiveness

Judging, blaming, bearing grudges and forgiveness are closely related. Before you need to forgive you must have judged, blamed and felt a measure of fear. Otherwise there would be nothing to forgive.

It is not for you to decide whether the recipient deserves to be forgiven is not. Forgiveness is not about condoning wrongdoing, but is part of the process of righting wrongs and putting something better in their place.

Five irresistible reasons to forgive

  1. When we forgive, we free ourselves from anger, bitterness and resentment and create inner peace. Our bodies feel less tense. The incident becomes merely a memory, no longer charged with emotion.
  1. Everything we give out returns to us. When we forgive, the bitterness evaporates and we avoid being on the end of others’ bitterness in future.
  1. We take responsibility for our lives rather than expecting something outside our control to happen or someone else to change.
  1. We forgive not so much for the other person (they may know that we’ve forgiven them). We do it for ourselves. Who benefits the most when you forgive – YOU! There’s a wise old saying: Acid harms only the vessel that contains it.
  1. Forgiveness brings our awareness to the present. We let go of the past, stop plotting for the future, let go and move on.

Forgive yourself too

Guilt is one of most disempowering emotions and one of the most common. Many people fret over things they can do little about, and some even feel guilty knowing they’ve done nothing wrong.

Guilt is a futile emotion because it is rooted in the past which, of course, can’t be changed. All we can do is change our thoughts and feelings about it.

What about you? You deserve forgiveness as much as anyone else. What do you need to be forgiven for? You have made mistakes – we all have. Instead of feeling guilty, look for the lessons and don’t make the same mistakes again.

Do you find it hard to forgive?

Do you ever feel you’re not ready to forgive? You want to, you know it makes sense and yet those blaming thoughts keep coming.

If so, start by wanting to, then intending to forgive. The willingness to forgive is a major step.

  • Examine your beliefs about forgiveness. Do you believe that you have to get even for every wrong done to you? Do you believe that forgiveness is a sign of weakness? Do these beliefs serve you well?
  • Eliminate unforgiving thoughts. Sow thoughts of love, empathy and forgiveness. Affirm – Perfect order is now established in my mind. I am at peace.
  • Picture the person who you wish to forgive. Surround this image in white light and affirm, ‘From this moment on, I send you love and light.’ ‘See’ the two of you as connected.
  • Extend love, generosity and compassion to them and avoid petty acts of revenge.

Simplify your life for happiness

If you really want to be happy and less stressed, simplify your life. Reduce your dependence on possessions. Surround yourself only with things that meet your needs and delight you.

  • Give up the need to have more. ‘More’ is one of the mantras of the ego, which believes ‘I never have enough’ and ‘If I don’t get it I won’t be happy’.
  • Give up the desire for luxury.
  • Shun ostentation.
  • Choose simple tastes that place less strain on the environment.
  • Learn to use less expensive things in more creative ways.

This doesn’t mean you’ll be less prosperous. Truly prosperous people do not need to burden themselves with unnecessary personal possessions. They know instinctively that they will always have sufficient for their needs.

When you’re gripped by an impulse to acquire something new, ask yourself:

  • Do I really need this?
  • Why?
  • Will it bring me more ‘pleasure’ than ‘pain’?
  • Have I kidded myself I need it to be happy?

If you don’t need it, don’t buy it! Resist the persuasive skills of the marketing and advertising industries! Research has repeatedly shown that once we have enough to feed, clothe and house ourselves, each additional item makes little difference to our happiness and well-being.

Clear the clutter

Free yourself of unnecessary paraphernalia. Don’t hang onto things just on the off-chance that one day they may come in useful. This attitude is born out of fear that one day your needs won’t be met, which keeps you rooted in poverty consciousness.

If you don’t need it, get rid of it. If you haven’t worn something for a while, let it go. Recycle anything you can’t use or give it to charity. Clear out your drawers, cupboards, shelves and every nook and cranny, and once you’ve cleared a space, don’t refill it. A good clear-out leaves you feeling lighter and clears the channel of supply enabling you to receive more of what you really need and value.

‘Wealth beyond what is natural is of no more use than an overflowing container.’

Buddhist Economics and Good Work

One of the greatest statements on living simply is to be found in E. F. Schumacher’s book, ‘Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered’.

One chapter, ‘Buddhist Economics,’ points out that consumption is not the purpose of life but merely a means to an end. Our aim, he argued, ‘should be to obtain the maximum well-being with the minimum of consumption.’

Using clothing as an example, he suggested that the most economically efficient approach would be to provide warmth, comfort and an attractive appearance for everyone, with the least amount of effort and minimum destruction of natural resources. Collecting a wardrobe full of clothes we hardly ever wear simply doesn’t make sense. We could toil less and have more time for other pursuits. This would also put less pressure on the environment.

When we go for maximum well-being with minimum consumption, we help to make the world a kinder, gentler place, and it doesn’t mean depriving ourselves because we’re gaining much more than we lose, including time for ourselves and our loved ones.

Good work

Another E.F. Schumacher book, ‘Good Work,’ spells out the two main purposes of work – to provide for our needs and, just as importantly, to express our gifts and powers. This is equally important because if we work only for money, we never be prosperous regardless of what we earn.

If your work is unfulfilling, change it. Find work that you enjoy, uses your talents and allows you to make your best contribution. When you do what you love and put your heart and soul into it, providing it benefits others and not just yourself you will be taken care of according to Spiritual Law.

‘I’ll try’ or ‘I don’t want to’?

‘I’ll try’ implies ‘I don’t want to’. How often have you asked (or invited) someone to do something and they’ve said ‘I’ll try’, only to let you down?

‘I’ll try to do it today.’ ‘I’ll try to make it to the meeting.’ ‘I’ll try to help.’ How many people have been disappointed by ‘I’ll try’, thinking they’ve been given a promise?

People say they’ll try if they don’t want to, don’t think they can, haven’t really got time, or have no intention of following through.

Assertive people don’t say ‘I’ll try’ when they mean ‘I won’t’ or ‘I don’t want to’. It’s a feeble cop-out.  Far better to say, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t, I don’t want to or ‘It’s not convenient’ and say why (even if you have to soften it a little).

Beware: ‘I’ll try’ implies failure and deceit. It is deceptive and defeatist.  When someone tells you they’ll ‘try’, realise that it could be an excuse and don’t be too disappointed if you’re let down.

There’s Danger in the Ground: Geopathic Stress

Geopathic stress is stress in the Earth’s vibrations. It comprises negative energies which emanate from the earth and cause discomfort and ill health to those living above. It is one of the most common factors in physical and mental illness. Although rarely acknowledged by the medical community it has been known about and accepted scientifically for nearly a century.

The Earth’s vibrations are distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by subterranean running water, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities. The distorted vibrations are potentially harmful to living creatures.

Any interruption to the strength and harmonious flow of the Earth’s natural energies causes geopathic stress and has subtle but profound effects upon our health and the health of animal and plant life.

Geopathic stress doesn’t cause illness directly, but damages the immune system and prevents the body from properly absorbing vitamins, minerals and trace elements from food.

The most common symptoms of exposure to geopathic stress are sleep disturbances. According to a 1992 study, Dr Kessler and Dr Kopschina identified chronic diseases directly associated with geopathic stress in the bedroom. This can be especially debilitating, especially if one’s sleeping position is directly over the stress line.

The main indicators that geopathic stress may be affecting you are:

  • Tiredness
  • Sleeplessness
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Waking unrefreshed
  • Reduced productivity in the workplace

Also, if you cannot shake off an illness or just feel generally below par, you may be affected by it.

Among the health conditions that have been linked to geopathic stress are a wide variety of long-term physical and mental illnesses, including:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma and respiratory difficulties (especially at night)
  • Autism
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Cancer
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cot death in infants
  • Excessive dreaming
  • High blood pressure
  • Hostility and aggression
  • Hyperactivity in children
  • Impaired immune system
  • Miscarriage
  • Nervousness
  • Poor concentration
  • Pre-menstrual tension
  • Restlessness (day and night-time)
  • Unexplained mood changes

All symptoms are more likely in energy-sensitive people. Women are more likely to be at risk than men because their hormonal systems are more susceptible.

Sometimes geopathic stress can affect a whole building causing illness and discontent among those who live or work there. The World Health Organisation reckons that 30% of commercial premises have ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ caused by Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMF) or geopathic stress.


Numerous causes have been identified. The main ones are subterranean water courses and geological faults.

Subterranean water courses

Subterranean water courses and streams are known to have an effect on the geomagnetic fields around them. Geopathic stress often occurs directly over such streams.

Geological faults and underground caverns

Rock fractures and faults in the Earth’s crust, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and lava flows can also generate radiation. Every time the Earth’s continental tectonic plates move, faults, fractures and fissures ensue which may not be obvious at the surface. People who live on a fault line appear to have a greater tendency to show depressive and/or aggressive behaviour.


When the Earth was born, radioactive elements were trapped in its interior that still emit radiation due to their long half-lives. In 1989, Dr Otto Bergmann of the University of Vienna showed that Earth radiation can affect our pulse rate, heart frequency and electrical skin resistance.

Mineral deposits

Certain mineral deposits exhibit geomagnetic disturbances similar to geological faults. These faults can cause a build-up of pressure which affects the electrical field of mineral deposits, especially quartz bearing rocks and ironstone, coal, oil, natural gas and iron.

Radon gas

Some faults form an outlet for radon gas. Radon gas rises to the surface and emits harmful radiation, which builds up to dangerous levels in poorly ventilated buildings. In the UK, house sellers are required to disclose whether there has ever been a problem with radon gas at the property.


Still unproven, but a potential source of geopathic stress.

Scarring on the landscape

Man-made disruptions to the Earth’s surface distort energy flows. These include road and rail cuttings, tunnels, embankments, sewers, quarries and mines, building foundations (especially tall buildings with steel pilings), and buried pipes and cables. Disturbances are also caused by electromagnetic fields from overhead cables and electricity-generating stations and sub-stations.

Detecting geopathic stress

Humans lost their natural ability to detect stress-free places long ago, but animals still have it. Some seek radiation, including cats, rabbits, snakes and mosquitos; others – including foxes, ducks, cattle, horses and deer – avoid it. Plants such as ivy also seek out stress points.

Geopathic stress is somewhat controversial because there are no reliable scientific instruments sensitive and selective enough to measure it. Most people, however, can learn to dowse for geopathic stress. A skilled dowser can locate ‘hotspots’, and they can also be located using magnets.

Some advertise that they can remedy geopathic stress at a distance, dowsing a floor plan of a home or workplace remotely to locate detrimental areas and then claiming to conduct a ‘healing’.

There are now many recognised methods of detecting geopathic energy imbalances in people, like the VEGA Test, Blood Crystalline Analysis, electro-acupuncture, kinesiology and so on. They can also confirm if the effects of geopathic stress have been cleared after treatment.


Many supposed remedies are sold, including special rings and necklaces, mirrors, coils of wire, and electronic devices of various sorts. The wires and mirrors are intended for placing in strategic places as dowsed by divining rods. Some people swear by these methods; others regard them as unproven at best, or sorcery at worst.

The best non-technical approach, however, is to ensure that you avoid stress hotspots. For instance, if your bed or desk is on a hotspot, move it!

Electronic Devices

Any internet search engine will find many electronic devices claiming to protect physical spaces against geopathic stress. They range from £30 to £700 and can be placed in a living area or under a bed for protection against the earth’s natural ground radiation. Some are stand-alone, others plug into an electric socket.

The past half century has also seen the development of various devices which use well-proven technologies of low frequency, low intensity magnetic pulses to balance the body by influencing the body’s tissues. Some consist of mats containing wires which carry the magnetic pulses. The person lies on the mat for 8-10 minutes two or three times a day, depending on how serious is the stress.

The latest and most advanced personal device is the AcuPearl. AcuPearl comes in various configurations, most of which can help with geopathic stress. It supports the body’s natural functions and rhythms by delivering harmonious frequencies to balance inharmonious ones. Its efficacy has been demonstrated on a range of states, including headaches, fatigue, hyperactivity and insomnia.

AcuPearl delivers therapeutic effects using (1) Low frequency pulsed output of the magnetic and light spectra; (2) Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy which uses low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues; (3) A propriety method called Adaptive Resonance, developed specifically for AcuPearl, which produces resonant patterns continually adapted as the device is used. The therapeutic effect of AcuPearl can be enhanced by applying it to acupuncture points.
