I am by nature rather sceptical and
unfairly cynical about the 'mystic' arts and
sciences, but when I had the offer to have my house
in Crediton 'Feng Shui'ed for free as part of
some training I went along with it to see what it was all
about. My prejudicial view was that it is all about sticking
the right object in the right corner of the room - and
painting it the 'right' colour. HOW WRONG I WAS!
The six hour long session started with removing
geopathic stress - with dowsing rods, and then moved on
to removing historic 'dark bits' from various parts of the
house. But then moved on to looking at the health of the
house - and how that could affect my health. This was
focused on electro magnetic fields and micro wave
(amusingly called 'electrosmog') generated by
electronic appliances and even the house wiring itself. These
forms of radiation can generate a whole raft of health
It is generally accepted that micro wave cookers can
leak dangerous waves when old, and we have had hints
that mobile phones can fry your brain if over used, but I
was surprised at how much radiation is given out by
common cordless DECT phones.
They radiate even when the phone is in its charger or
base station - and all the time whether in use or not. I
have replaced my DECT phone with a good old wired phone
- that also does not use any of my electricity and makes
me sit down to talk! And don't forget the wi-fi issue, and
that there are safer ways to use your mobile (if you really
need to use it) - and if you live near a mobile phone mast or
grid transmission line you could have a serious problem!
I was also surprised when the EMF around the head of my bed
was measured (on a proper meter!) - it was way above the
recommended safe levels. This is the spot where my head is
subjected to emissions for eight hours a night! It was coming
from a clock radio by my bedside and apparently from the
wiring in the wall behind the bed. I have replaced the clock
radio with a good old fashioned wind up alarm clock ( that as
a bonus does not use any electricity!) and am looking at some
way to shield the bed from the wall wiring.
This is all new to me and I am still looking into the
causes and detrimental effects of these apparently
self-inflicted health hazards - but there are several sites on
the web where more information can be found if you are
interested - or worried!
These will get you started:
And if you dare have your house given the Feng Shui
goingover then mine was done by Frederique Cooke of the Feng Shui Academy who is based in
Shobrooke - so very local.
Well I am off now for some acupuncture - another new thing
for me that seems to help!
