Question: I am your loyal reader. Recently I bought a pendulum for dowsing. It turned out that when my family checked my energy, it was negative. But when I measured myself, it was positive. Why is there a difference? The crown chakra was what we measured. Is that right? How can we transform negative energy into positive energy?

Answer: Due to the interference of electromagnetic waves (mobile phones, wireless internet access, base stations, cordless phones, etc.), the energy of many people’s crown chakras flows in reverse direction (counter-clockwise). If you dowsed under a fluorescent light or next to an energy-saving light, you may also be disturbed. So consider this factor when testing your dowsing accuracy. When you are dowsing and if the energy of the crown chakra flows counter-clockwise, the result will be opposite of what it is supposed to be. This means positive energy is measured as negative energy and negative energy is measured as positive energy. When the crown chakra is disturbed, so is one’s ability to make judgment, and one tends to make the wrong choice. Before dowsing, check your own energy first. Put one hand on the crown, use the other hand to dowse. If the pendulum does not move, it means the energy is balanced. If it is counter-clockwise, it means it is discharging negative energy and clockwise means supplementing positive energy. When the pendulum stops moving, the energy is balanced.

A simple way to transform the energy of the crown chakra from counter-clockwise to clockwise is to visualize a sun on top of your head. To ensure that the crown chakra is spinning unhindered, do the qi-harmonizing exercises daily. (Please refer to Dr Lai’s Health Tips).

Take measures to protect yourself against electromagnetic waves. Recently, I found a very good method. “The King of Glorious Sutras called the Exalted Sublime Golden Light” mentions about the names of the four Luminous Lightening Kings of the four directions. Writing their names at their corresponding directions at home would protect harm from electricity. I have tried it and the energy of the house increased by sevenfold. The names of the Kings can also be written on a piece of paper (size of a name card) in their corresponding directions, carry with you when you go out. At home, the name of Eastern Luminous Lightening King faces the East and the name of the Western Luminous Lightening King faces the West etc. The four directions and the names of the four Luminous Lightening Kings are as follow:



West East

East ~ Aghana

South ~ Satadru

West ~ Cyutaprabha

North ~ Sutamani

If you have experienced terror and sadness, it would close down the heart chakra and thus reduce energy flow. Which in turn would make you susceptible to the interference of pollution. After balancing your qi, inhale light into your heart chakra, exhale darkness and do the shaking exercise.

Thank you for raising this question.


Question: After a medical check-up, I discovered that I have hyperthyroidism. The doctor recommended radioactive iodine therapy, but I will have to be on medication for long-term to control the situation. Is there any other way to solve the problem?

Answer: Thyroid is vulnerable to pollution, whether the pollution is from water or environment, drug or pesticide residues in food. Contamination from electromagnetic radiation can cause thyroid dysfunction. Take care to protect yourself from pollution, especially those pollutions that you are in frequent contact with. In addition to this, eliminate toxins from the body. Liver is the organ that filters pollution, and needs to be cleansed regularly. Use the Apple Juice – Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse (for details read Andreas Moritz’s “The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush”) on a regular basis until no stones are discharged. After that do the liver and gallbladder flush every six to eight months.

Thyroid belongs to the throat chakra which is the door to self-expression. Any repressed expression would interfere with the throat chakra. Use various methods like colour visualisation, deep breathing, painting and singing etc. to ease the repressed energy. Inhaling light and exhaling foul qi is also a good method. If there are sounds or words that you want to speak out, just let it out.

The throat chakra and the base chakra have a reciprocal relationship. Use the method taught by Dr Mitchell May to activate the base chakra. Swing the coccyx front and back several times and do it few times a day. Shaking-off exercises can also help balance the whole body.


Question: Recently I heard of people in their thirties or forties suffering from cancer. Why do these seemingly healthy people get this disease? What should we pay attention to?

Answer: Energetic youngsters do not think about taking care of the body. They wilfully indulge in eating and drinking, overworking and living an irregular life. Working people nowadays face the computer all day long, sitting under fluorescent light and being exposed to air-conditioning. This unnatural lifestyle will cause problems sooner or later; cancer is one example.

For prevention and recovery of cancer, pay attention to a few general rules:

1.Maintain a normal body temperature. The body temperature of ordinary cancer patient is 0.5to 1 degree Celsius below normal. If the temperature is increased by one degree, the immune function and enzyme activity would increase greatly. Thus heat therapy is a very effective treatment. Avoid eating cold things, especially cold desserts. Avoid sleeping in an air-conditioned room, as the pores are open when sleeping and the cold qi will invade the body. To discharge the cold qi, the preparatory step of Waidangong can help warm up the body and discharge the cold The Wutaishan 8-Step Exercise is also a warming exercise. Hot foot bath can warm up the body, and rubbing the soles of the feet promotes blood circulation, warming up the hands and feet. Another method of warming the body is soaking in an oil-bath. If oil-bath is not available, just soak the feet. [For information on oil bath, refer to Hui Gui Shen De Xi Ye (Note I)]. All pollutants, including electromagnetic waves would cause the body to “cool down”, so take note of what you eat, drink and see. Quiet time allows the nerves to relax, repair and is important in the maintenance of body temperature and your health.

2.Maintain the acid-alkaline balance of the blood. Cancer cells can only grow in an acidic environment. The diet must mainly be slightly alkaline-forming fruits and vegetables. Grains and beans become slightly alkaline after sprouting. Millet, quinoa and amaranths are also slightly alkaline even when not sprouted. All animal products, especially meat and seafood, are extremely acidic. Carbohydrates can also turn the body acidic.

Recently there was an educational film called Forks Over Knives” (forkssoverknives.com) showing that coronary disease, cancer and diabetes can be linked to diet. Part of the film talks about a nutritional biochemist Dr T. Colin Campbell, who made an important breakthrough in his research. Earlier when Dr Campbell was in the Philippines, his job was to supplement the protein intake of children. He noticed that the children from wealthy families had a higher incidence of liver cancer. At the same time he read a scientific research paper from India reporting that the incidence of cancer varied when mice were simultaneously administered aflatoxin and fed with a diet consisting of different percentages of casein. The group of mice fed with a diet containing 20 % casein ended with cancer whereas the group that had 5% casein did not have cancer. Dr Campbell replicated this experiment after he returned to the United States. The result was the same. In his next experiment, every three weeks, he replaced the high-protein food with low-protein and then low-protein food with high protein, only changing the percentage of casein. He was able to grow or eliminate the cancer. A high protein diet promotes the growth of cancer cells in the mice, whereas in a low protein diet, the cancer cells disappeared. Protein from plants does not promote cancer growth; this has the same effect on human. Vegetarianism is a very important element in the prevention of cancer.

3.Try your best to boost your energy and avoid an environment that would lower your energy. Earthing is the best way to increase energy. Walk in a natural environment and it is best to wear natural materials, especially underwear which is in close-contact with the body. Cotton, hemp, and wool are good. It is also best to use natural materials where one sits and sleeps. I noticed that the energy of the place where a very weak person frequently sat was in reversed direction (counter-clockwise). This caused the lower three chakras of that person to spin counter-clockwise.

When we are vigilant and pay attention to how the energy of the surrounding environment impact on us, we can prevent cancer, and heal ourselves of cancer.
