Geomantic disturbances refer to energetic imbalances or anomalies that emanate from the earth and its environment and can affect living things in that area. Geomancy, an ancient science and art form that deals with the “knowledge of the earth”, is about understanding, analyzing and possibly harmonizing these energetic properties.
These disturbances can be caused by natural features such as water veins, rock formations or earth faults, but also by man-made structures such as buildings, roads and other infrastructure. Sometimes they are even seen as responsible for health problems or general malaise.
Geomantic disturbances are often difficult to measure and are usually identified by specialized techniques such as radiesthesia (dowsing) or by modern geophysical measurement techniques. The goal is to neutralize or mitigate these disturbances to create a more harmonious environment.
Imagine a deep crack in the ground where earth rays reach the earth’s surface in high intensity due to lack of attenuation. A well-known example of such a geologic fault is the Andreas Fault in the United States. These fractures or faults are the result of tectonic faults that cause cracks and displacements in the earth’s surface and underlying layers.
In geomancy, these geological faults take on a special significance. While in the geological context they are understood as the result of tectonic forces, geomancy considers them as conductors or even amplifiers of earth energies that can be potentially harmful or disruptive. These energy lines, also known as geopathogenic radiation, often propagate perpendicularly from the point of rupture to the earth’s surface. They can directly influence the energetics of a place and the health of the organisms living there.
When layers of the earth of different compositions are in direct contact, the resulting energy patterns can be complex and often problematic. These geopathogenic radiations can not only put the human body in a state of stress or discomfort, but also affect the growth of plants and disturb the wildlife in the area. In some cases, geopathogenic radiation has even been found to affect the quality of groundwater.
To identify such high-energy faults, special geomantic techniques such as radiesthesia or geophysical measurement methods are usually used. After identification, there are several ways to harmonize or neutralize these energy flows.
However, it is important to note that many of these concepts are controversial in the scientific community. Nevertheless, geomancy remains a valuable tool for many to better understand and potentially improve the relationship between the Earth and the organisms that live on it. In this context, geological fractures and faults are not only earth-historical phenomena, but also gateways to a profound energetic interaction that could expand our understanding of health and well-being.
