Negative Energies

earth energies

There are many different names for different earth energies; telluric energies, Ley lines, Hartmann lines, geopathic stress, mountain or water dragon vein. Some energies are very negative such as black water, others can be too energising such as Ley lines. ..."because we are made up of a very large percentage of water and our cells are vulnerable to very small changes in electrical potential these 'emissions' will be more or less deleterious to different people"

It does not matter what their name is - it is their effects which is important. These energies are generated by a myriad of things, including the earth's core, local magnetic anomalies, meteor debris, solar flares and solar storms, underground streams, dissolved salts and many other things.  Different people experience these lines in different ways.

excess electrical charges

Electricity is a most fascinating thing. We take it so much for granted; we trust that it will be 'there' when we flick a switch. How the circuitry is earthed in our homes and other buildings such as classrooms is extremely important for how healthy those buildings are. There has been a practice in older homes to earth the building through the copper water pipes. In effect this creates an induced field. Sometimes those fields are very unhealthy. It is particularly problematic in places like Hobart where we have so much underground water. In any case it is a very bad practice to use the copper pipes as an earthing device. When buying or selling properties be attentive to these issues and look to see how the building is earthed - the practice is now outlawed in most Australian cities but older properties may never have been rectified.

In more modern buildings and those that have been upgraded there is an earth stake driven into the ground with a white and green wire attached to it (in Australia). There should only be ONE earth stake and it should be placed as close to the fuse box as possible.

In modern developments the electrical cables are placed underground. I have dowsed over and along these cables and find they act like underground water. I have grave reservations about how healthy they are, especially when combined with the trend to reinforced concrete flooring. The metal acts as a focus for any leakage and it is laid out as a closed cell grid. If you are sensitive to small changes in electrical fields then these things can contribute to chronic health maladies.

modern building practices and cultures

PLEASE DON'T use corrugated iron on the walls. If you must use it or you think it looks funky then make sure it is NOT on the walls on which beds will be placed. I had a client who had a chronic health condition. When I looked at her home I could not find a single wall in the main bedroom which was not affected by negative electrical fields. In addition, there was only one room in the whole house which was not affected by these conditions, as corrugated iron had been used extensively in the design! It is my personal opinion that it is a singularly ugly building material in an urban setting. if you are Glenn Murcutt you can get away with it (as his buildings are usually placed in rural settings). I still have reservations even in these settings.

Whilst talking about modern building practices let us also consider the effects of steel framing. Steel is a magnetic material. It is the nature of the product! When you use steel to frame a building you increase the magnetic fields. If you are a strong person this does not matter initially. If however your health is challenged, or you have a tendency to chronic health conditions then this is a big problem. Now let's add a steel framed building to a reinforced concrete slab which is a closed cell grid. Now add some underfloor heating which is laid in a looping grid too. Now add corrugated iron to the walls and the roof! Well we now have a fine soup of competing energies with greater or lesser charges conducted and magnified by them. Now let's put someone with a weakened immune system or a family tendency to chronic illness into this house! We could also add a DEC wireless phone and let's also add Wireless internet connections! Mmm, certainly not Chicken Soup for the Soul or for the body for that matter. You can tinker with the energy of this and that but if you do not address the physical nature of these factors then chronic illness will continue with little resolution possible.

words spoken

What we say in any environment will have an impact on the environment. You know when you walk into a place and someone has been having an argument - you don't have to hear it you just kind of know that something has been going down! Well the negative words that are spoken in any environment create an impact - add intensity and frequency to the equation and we have a thick, dense and polluted environment.

We have a responsibility, an obligation as sentient beings, to guard our words. Catch ourselves when we start to say those habitual things about our family, our furniture, our beliefs and our expectations. You can get some coaching to help with your internal speak or you can use affirmation, however if you do not have a quiet practice then you cannot hear that internal language until it spills out loudly into your precious castle - your home, your family sanctuary.

things done

When violent acts take place in or around places or buildings they leave an imprint. Those energies that are discharged into the environment are so pervasive that they last for centuries in some cases. Most indigenous cultures have memories of these events and the sites that they have taken place on. It is my belief that some of the historical trouble spots in the world have these dense energy prints and they further intensify trouble and difficulties. Without awareness and a desire to resolve these prints then we get to perpetuate the same old stuff. This is one reason that I caution people against buying or inheriting second hand beds, particularly if there have been troubles in the household that the bed rested.

what to do

How can we minimise the impact of these negative energies?

  • Watch what we say, particularly if it is something that we repeat either frequently or with intensity.
  • Watch what we do in our personal spaces.
  • Be very careful when buying a property to investigate the history of the property.
  • Get a competent and diligent Feng Shui analysis - it is possible to both detect and ameliorate some of the energies and others are best left alone.
  • When building from scratch or making an extension ensure that you do a good analysis of the electrical circuitry and make sure that the fuse board is NOT on a wall where a bed or desk might be placed. Make sure that the power plugs are not near where the head will be placed. Ensure that all fuse boxes and internet connectivity is placed on an external wall that does not have daily use. For example ensure that the television or neutral furniture is placed on the wall which holds these electrical components.
  • Keep the use of steel to an absolute minimum when building, refurbishing, extending or renovating.
  • Examine very carefully the type of heating you put into your home. Avoid any underfloor heating including ducted heating. Do consider the water filled radiators also known as hydronic heating.
  • Get a geopathic assessment done. I have had great success with interstate and international clients detecting stress zones and suggesting remedies.

There are many proprietary devices for protecting against these energies. Some are useful, many are just placebo and some tragically are fraudulent. Look carefully at the company's claims – look to see if their research has been independently verified and is backed up by peer reviewed papers. If there are none then do be very careful. Most of the devices that you put onto your phone are of this nature - they are mere placebo - you are better using hands free devices such speaker phone.

In regards to accepting responsibility for what is in our environment may I recommend this book Zero Limits - the secret Hawaiian system of wealth, health, peace and more by Joe Vitale andIhaleakala Hew Len. I highly recommend it. Here is a lovely link to an interview with him.

Vicki came to Feng Shui my house and made some immediate observations and suggestions such as inverting where my young son put his head in the bed as it was actually on the wall with the main electrical power board. 

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

Vick's feng shui advice has changed my life, my home, my world.  Simple easy and Energy Changing to the positive.  I highly recommend her wonderful gifts she brings into your life and home.

Belinda Wardlaw

One of the major problems she identified was that the front door was in direct line of the back windows of the garden - letting money flow out of the house. 

Clotilde Blanchet -OnLine Discovery

Vicki’s knowledge and experience of feng shui and business management in general was invaluable to us and we felt very confident in following her suggestions and advice.

The crème de la crème of our interior design are the four large banners hanging throughout the centre that were designed by Vicki - they are absolutely fabulous... a must see.

I have used Vicki’s expertise with Feng Shui in my last 3 houses to assist with the challenges that presented at the time and it was amazing how sometimes seemingly small changes within your environment can have a significant impact.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki's approach to Feng Shui has intrigued and supported me and my family for many years. From simple positional/shape changes to complex "remedies" our home's chi flows better with Vicki's Feng Shui advice.

Michael Roberts Managing Director

With Vicki’s guidance we have created a long term plan for the development of the clinic and how it will look, from details as small as where shelves should go to the larger plan for the front of the building.

I found Vicki's mindfulness meditation course extremely worthwhile. 

When I practise I am calm, more organised and and I am able to prioritise more effectively- this is really important in my role as a nurse - If I do not look after myself I can't spend all day caring for others.It is said that meditation is like 'putting your oxygen mask on first before assisting others'- it is so true! 

Vicki is a great mindfulness teacher.

Kathy B - Hobart

My latest challenge was attracting someone to share my life with. I have always believed in the Law of Attraction” so I knew I needed to change.  I had already made many personal growth changes however the shift still had not happened, so I called my friend.  After making only a few of the recommended changes Vicki suggested in my current residence my energy and life has been opened and I am now blessed with a new relationship.

PF Geelong - Vic

Your work makes such a positive change in people's lives, you have a great job!

J. F. Sandy Bay

I have known Vicki for many years and have been blessed with her friendship and professional assistance when faced with several challenges in my life.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki came to our home and very successfully removed some very old energy that was impacting on our ability to move forward

DebraQuatararo -

She reset the corner boundaries of the property and cleared the flow of energy. Within a month of that work I was able to leave a job of 18 years and launch my business 

Debra Quatararro -

We moved our Naturopathic clinic on a shoestring budget and Vicki was able to assist us in clinic design that would look and feel great as well as be affordable.

Lynn & Mark Hudson - TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

She gave us suggestions for placing of plants and furniture to block the outward flow of money but a month later we decided to actually alter the back of the house, moving window and doors to give a different access to the garden.  Since then I started working part time for an employer whilst still maintaining my own business and I've found that for the first time in quite a while I have money in my account that stays there, referrals and new clients that are bigger and have good cash flow. Money does not seem to leak out as much and life is looking up.  

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

I practiseTai chi with Vicki and combining both Mindfulness Meditation and Tai Chi is a natural fit and has helped me recover from a significant back injury and the stress and anxiety that comes along with pain.

Sandy Roberts

The energy in the shop is just amazing. it is so peaceful but energised. People are definitely affected by the space in a very positive way.

Kara B - Copping - Tasmania

Vicki was always available for us and her insights and experience added pizazz and harmony to the project

Susan Peden and John Correy, Snug

The more I read about Feng Shui, the more I realised I didn't know, so doing her workshop enabled me to understand enough to use the principles in my life.
