Stay Away from Electromagnetic Fields and Protect Your Life Force
Do you know that using a hair dryer could cause cancer in your children? You probably realise that living close to an area with high power line is detrimental to your health. But do you know that during the peak period, a primary distribution line may have the same level of electromagnetic field as that of a high-power line? You probably use the mobile phone everyday, but may be oblivious to the fact that a two-hour exposure to the radiation from a mobile phone is strong enough to break the DNA of laboratory rats (a sign to getting cancer). Living in this modern society, we need to be equipped with lots of knowledge in order to be protected and to survive the various environmental pollutions in cities. Warning – the Electricity Around You may be Hazardous to Your Health: How to Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Fields (2nd ed) is a very practical book and can be one of your backups. If you are suffering from cancer or are pregnant, please make a special effort to read this book because electromagnetic fields can accelerate the growth of cancer cells as well as increase the risk of a miscarriage.
In fact, each of us living in this modern society should read this book and understand the possible harm of electromagnetic fields on you and your family’s health. Almost none of us can get by without using electrical appliances, and all of us are exposed to the atmosphere that is filled with all types of man-made microwave radiation. The author, Ellen Sugarman, has collected extensive information related to electromagnetic fields. As a reporter, she has uncovered many untold information. This information not only provides us with a thorough understanding of the electromagnetic fields, but also enables us to realise the severity of their interferences. Also, the author has provided some practical guidelines for us to avoid potential sources of high electromagnetic fields.
While I was translating this book, I was in the midst of learning about electromagnetic fields. However, my real understanding of, and benefit from this knowledge did not arise until a friend of mine brought a gauss meter. I was then able to incorporate the information from the book into practice. I realised there are many dangers in our environment that we cannot even imagine. Just from measuring the magnetic fields in my home and in my husband’s office, my husband and I have made many changes. For example, we removed the baby toilet trainer from the bathroom because we detected an area of high magnetic field on the central bathroom floor. Under my husband’s office desk, there was a spot with an electromagnetic field as high as 13 milligauss, constantly exposing his seat to magnetic fields of higher than 3 milligauss. Hence, we changed his seat to a low magnetic field area and let him wear an electromagnetic shield. We have just moved to a newly renovated dormitory. I refuse to use the fluorescent light and the kitchen range hood installed for the new dormitory. Due to the installation of a central air conditioning, the ceiling is much lower and hence the fluorescent light is too close to our head. Our remedy is to change to a lighting facility that uses light bulbs. The newly installed range hood uses over 500 milligauss of magnetic fields. Luckily my diet is mainly raw food, and I rarely need to use the range hood.
Although these are all small changes in our lifestyle, we have avoided a lot of invisible harms. Even after we have installed an electrilizer at the fuse box to eliminate the interferences of electromagnetic fields from household electronic appliances, adhering to the principles of children education, we still constantly remind our daughter to be alert, to stay away from the refrigerator when it is buzzing, and so on. Even though she is only 3 years old, she is more vigilant than most people. It is not that electricity is bad, it is whether we make good use of it.
Through this book, you will gain certain concepts on electromagnetic fields and will be alert to the potential exposure to high sources of electromagnetic fields in your daily life. Having a gauss meter can be very helpful; the readings will urge you to make appropriate changes. One point that I must emphasize is that understanding the information in the book is only the first step, the key is to actually pay attention to our daily living. I had once discovered in the house of an electrical engineer with a Ph.D. that the position of his bed was separated from the refrigerator by only a wall. The electromagnetic fields right behind a refrigerator can be as high as 300 milligauss. The engineer knew about the potential harm of electromagnetic fields, but he was just unaware of it.
Understanding the problem is one matter, but how to solve the problem is yet another issue. This book provides some examples and methods and advises you how to face the problems you may encounter. In the process of translating this book, with Dr Lai’s help, I was quite often very excited in discovering many excellent methods in dealing with electromagnetic field interferences. Among the methods, the effects of magnets, peat moss and copper wires were especially amazing. Although some of these methods are not entirely for countering electromagnetic field interferences, please do not belittle them. After trying them out, some of my friends have experienced amazing results; these methods have incredible effects in restoring our body and mind.
We have been introducing these methods to readers through the Lapis Lazuli Light magazine. We were especially fortunate to have found Donna Eden’s book right before the Chinese version of Warning – the Electricity Around You may be Hazardous to Your Health: How to Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Fields was published. Donna Eden had been seriously affected by electromagnetic fields. She later managed to heal herself using the methods presented in her book. We have included all these great methods in the appendices at the back of the newly published [Chinese version] Warning – the Electricity Around You may be Hazardous to Your Health: How to Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Fields, in the hope to benefit more people. The methods from Donna Eden’s book are presented below.
Test and Eliminate the Excess Negative Energy Accumulated in Your Body
Different people absorb different amount of energy from the environment. Donna Eden provides an energy testing method – first, energy test yourself (please refer to the energy measuring method at the end of this passage), then use a small, round magnet with a small hole in the centre, thread a string or dental floss (about 2 inches long, like a pendulum) through the small hole and tie a knot. Have someone help you by standing at an arm-length distance in front of you, holding the string using his or her thumb and index finger (either hand is fine) and swirl the magnet clockwise while moving the magnet toward your chest, then energy test. Next, have your assistant swirl the magnet counter-clockwise and move away from you until an arm-length distance in front of you. Then energy test again.
Swirling the magnet clockwise brings energy into your body. If your energy is tested to have increased at this time, that indicates your health is fine. Swirling the magnet counter-clockwise is to draw energy out from your body. If the testing result shows that your energy increases, it means your body needed energy removed and you could be suffering from excess electromagnetic energy.
To get rid of the excess negative energy in your body, use the same magnet to work on your 7 chakras (Picture 1) or where you feel needed, for example, your hands or legs, etc. Have the magnet swirl counter-clockwise and move away from your body. Do this once or twice for each chakra.
Utilise Magnet to Protect Your Body and Eliminate Discomfort
Our bodies absorb energy mainly through our hands and legs; hence, they need the most protections. Donna Eden recommended using 4 small and weak magnets or those plastic magnets that stick to refrigerators (with a diameter not more than ¼ of an inch), stick the north pole side of the magnets (please refer to the appendix at the end of this passage on how to differentiate the north and south poles) onto the soft part of your palm, between your thumb and index finger, of both hands, and onto the Yongquan acupoint of your feet (Picture 2). This will help you build yourself a protective magnetic field and block the entry of other energies. Sticking magnets on your body is harmless. At nighttime, the magnets will shift your energies. If you experience discomfort, simply remove the magnets. Do not wear them all day; take them off for a few-hour break. If the prexisting symptom is not completely relieved by sticking magnets on these four points of your hands and feet, Donna Eden suggests that you experiment by adding magnets to other parts of your body, according to your intuition. She has known people who had headaches and instinctively placed magnets on the hairline at the back of the neck and the headaches were relieved. Another variation is to tape the north pole of the magnet against your skin on one side of your hand, foot, wrist or ankle, and tape the south pole of the magnet on the other side.
Fill a glass container with drinking water and place it on a big magnet with the north pole facing upward for 10 minutes to 24 hours. This will change the structure of the molecules and have the effects of preventing deposition of cholesterol on the inner walls of blood vessels, strengthening the digestive system, and enhancing the blood supply and nutrients to all organs. Another simple and easy method is to directly tape two magnets on both sides of a glass such that the north and south poles face each other, pour in drinking water, and it is ready for consumption in five minutes. Donna Eden believes that drinking magnetized water can protect us from the surrounding electromagnetic field interferences.
Appendix 1: Energy Measurements
- Measuring Energy Using a Metal Chain (please refer to page 85 of Return to the Bliss by Dr Chiu-Nan Lai).
To measure a person’s energy, make a fist, dowse with a metal chain above the fist, between the thumb and the index finger.
- Muscle Testing (Picture 3)
I never have problems in using metal chain to measure energy, but some of my friends have encountered difficulties, either that the chain does not move or that it move to the left and right in a disorderly manner. Hence, an alternative method of measurement is presented here for those who have problems using a metal chain or those who have doubts. I usually convince them through this method.
- Extend one arm, let it be parallel to the floor and 45 degree to your body, with your palm facing downward.
- Have someone place his/her fingers on top of your wrist. Both of you take a few deep breaths and clear your thoughts. While trying to hold your arm still, your assistant will slowly press it downward for two seconds, just to see how much pressure is needed to press the arm which then bounces back. Both of you will feel the magnitude of the pressure that is your energy level.
- If you are testing on food, hold the food with one hand and place it in front of your navel, extend your other arm to be energy tested. Compare if different food changes your energy level.
Interestingly, when I was sharing this muscle testing method with my Tai Chi teacher, he simply put the food in front of his navel, and then said, “I can tell.” Navel is the centre storage of energy; my teacher was very clear with the movement of his qi. According to him, if the food settles your energy, the food is good for you, whereas if your qi floats upward, then the food does not suit you. This analysis shows the effectiveness of the muscle testing method.
Another fun usage of this method is to test if someone is lying. When you are lying, your energy drops. If you say, “I am so and so,” when you state the false name, your energy is lower than when you tell the truth. This method is probably more effective in teaching people not to lie than loads of moral teachings.
Whether measuring a person or food’s energy, you will experience freedom once you have learned how to measure energy. At least you no longer need to consult with an expert in what you should eat for you can test it yourself. When I go grocery shopping with my children, I never worry about them wanting to buy all sorts of dazzling array of food. All I need is to test on the food; I will only buy if the food suits her. Nevertheless, you will find that most of the processed food in the market are either not good for consumption or do not provide any energy, and you are not better off after eating them. It is best not to eat the food you tested that drew your energy down.
Differentiating the North and South Poles of A Magnet
- Checking through a compass. The side that the compass needle points toward is the north pole.
- First, test your energy. Then tape the magnet on your head above your ear, test your energy again. If the energy level drops, then that side is the north pole of the magnet. If the energy level rises, then it is the south pole of a magnet. This is because the north pole of a magnet has a contracting effect, whereas the south pole has an expanding effect.
