What is Geomancy?
Geomancy literally means, “Divining the Earth”. It is an art that analyses the subtle earth energies that ebb and flow throughout the landscape, influencing health and wealth, home, garden and office alike. Geomancy works harmoniously with these energies enhance our relationship with Spirit and Place.
Every culture has ancient geomantic traditions – the Chinese tradition is feng-shui. Like feng-shui, geomancy can tell you what’s wrong with the energies in your home or workplace, and how to correct them. In addition, Western geomancy utilizes dowsing and earth acupuncture techniques to deal with geopathic stress and balance the subtle earth energies. Practitioners can also use scientific instrumentation to assess electromagnetic and microwave pollution (or technopathic stress) – an increasing problem for many people in our technologically advanced and gadget-obsessed society including fifth generation.
Geomancy is also interested in the location and orientation of new spaces, particularly ones that enhance our connection to Spirit. If you want to know where the power center is in your garden lets say to build a temple, or if you want to know the best place for an altar in your living room; a geomancer can tell you.
Whether your sacred space is a single crystal, a personal altar, a standing stone, medicine wheel, labyrinth, stone circle or something larger geomancy can help you design, locate, align and activate the space so that it connects with and enhances the natural energies of the earth.
Unfortunately In our modern society it is increasingly common for houses and other buildings to be sited over such geopathic stress zones.
Geomancer’s are trained to detect and manipulate these energies to minimize their detrimental effects and restore balance to the area.
