In this blog-article, after a short introduction, I will first look at toxic house issues (Section A) and follow-up with holistic solutions (Section B) that optimize health and longevity.

Section A

Each year, close to 4 million in the World people die prematurely from illness attributable to household air pollution. Household air pollution causes noncommunicable diseases including stroke, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer. Close to half of deaths due to pneumonia among children under 5 years of age are caused by particulate matter (soot) inhaled from household air pollution. (Source) With outdoor pollution, we are looking at around 7 million people dying from this toxemia situation. (Source) In this perspective, still according to the W.H.O., three billion people, mostly children and women who live most of the time in their homes, are victims of polluted air.

 

Even the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recognized the seriousness of indoor air pollution that is killing tens of thousands of American each year.

“In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors”. (Source)

Still according to the W.H.O., three billion people, mostly children and women who live most of the time in their homes, are victims of polluted air. This public health care issue is more often than not missed in conventional medical schools.

This situation is not encouraging. Medicine’s  first task is to identify the deep underlying causes to diseases and many of these causes are found in one’s living area and in the workshopee’s lifestyle. Just the air inside most homes have been determined to be up to five times worse than the air pollution outside, wrote the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (ie, other sources say 10 times worse), while the W.H.O found that 4.3 million people die each year prematuraly from the air inside homes. (Source) To make matters worse, the non-profit Environmental Working Group tested over 2,000 cleaning products, and found that most of them contain chemicals that are linked to asthma, allergies, or even cancer. EWG found that, because American product manufacturers or distributors aren’t required to disclose all their ingredients, many of them don’t. Still worse, with electromagnetic and dirty electricity pollution, formaldehyde and arsenic in wood, lead in pipes, radon under the house, fire retardant outgasing from sofas and beds (toxic to the thyroid), mercury vapors in people’s mouths, deleterious bacteria and molds on the walls, and, among many other toxins, phthalate esters all over (ie, these are plasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC) materials used in floor and wall covering materials, shower curtains, adhesives, synthetic etc), people develop respiratory, cancer and auto-immunity diseases, all of these problems make up a new disease category called the “sick building syndrome”.

Toxins are particularly relevant because many heavy metals and deleterious chemicals hinder the proper functioning of mammaliam metabolism, the repair genes, the mitochondria energy system, the immune system, the thyroid, the messaging molecules (cytokines, hormones, neuropeptides, neurotransmitters etc), genes’ co-factors, the microbiota, the metabolic detox pathways and the like. Two of many examples, when BPA and other obesogens latch on insulin receptors, insulin resistance is promoted, that which sets the stage for diabetes and early death (Source) and all the more so that animal saturated fat is abundant and exercises deficient. When heavy metals are present, Lyme’s bacteria become much stronger. There are hundreds of examples of this nature, a few of which will be discussed in this workshop.

Environmental Factors For Optimal Healing Shelter

  • Sun
  • Being outside in fresh air
  • Fresh ocean air and or mountain air.
  • Nature
  • A clean relatively toxin/mold-free house
  • Stress-free/positive environment

Important Location and Environmental Factors

Elevation

People who live at high elevation receive some benefits regarding more UVB and lower pollution and great way to fight chronic hypoxia, lack of oxygen….rbc….athletes….longevity…

Air Quality

We get ocean ions when we’re close to the beach, and fresh air blows from the Pacific oceans.

Since the central coast of California is relatively remote, there’s not much pollution from cars. It’s not next to any airports, shipping ports, nuclear power plants or military installations, all of which are sources of various kinds of pollution.

There’s no coal or natural gas powerplants anywhere near us (according to this map).

As a plus, radon concentrations are very low next to oceans (R).

Noise, EMF, and Light pollution

The area has low noise pollution.

Our part of town has low nnEMF (I have an EMF meter).  Cellular signals are really bad in our house, which is good because we’re less bombarded with nnEMF.  Verizon is the best, and it only gets about 1 bar in the house.

Better cable

Our home doesn’t have light bombs, which means there’re no street lamps that invade your house.  This can be bad in a lot of suburban neighborhoods and cities.

Latitude

I wanted to get a place that was south enough to get more UVB.

According to the Harvard School of Health, people who live above 37 degrees latitude don’t get enough UVB energy from the sun to make all the vitamin D they need. The same is true for people who spend most of their time indoors or use sunscreens (R).

http://www.health.harvard.edu/mens-health/vitamin-d-and-your-health

Human skin exposed to sunlight on clear days in Boston (42.2 degrees) from November through February produced no vitamin D3. In Edmonton (52 degrees), humans couldn’t produce D3 from October through March (R).

I wanted to get a place that was south enough to get more UVB.

According to the Harvard School of Health, people who live above 37 degrees latitude don’t get enough UVB energy from the sun to make all the vitamin D they need. The same is true for people who spend most of their time indoors or use sunscreens (R).

http://www.health.harvard.edu/mens-health/vitamin-d-and-your-health

Human skin exposed to sunlight on clear days in Boston (42.2 degrees) from November through February produced no vitamin D3. In Edmonton (52 degrees), humans couldn’t produce D3 from October through March (R).

At 34 degrees, humans can make vitamin D3 even in the middle of winter (Central coast=35 degrees) (R).  This is why ~35 degrees latitude was the upper limit of a place I’d move to.

Pollution will reduce UVB, so even though LA is at 34 degrees latitude, you might not get enough UVB to produce adequate D3.  Clouds will likewise reduce UVB.  In the winter it rains a lot on the east coast, which will result in less UVB.  Elevation will increase UVB, so a place like Colorado will be better for UVB (but elevation is worse in other ways).

The Central Coast has clear skies in the afternoon almost all year round and very little pollution, making UVB more accessible.  Since the average weather ranges from 65-71 degrees F (18.3-21.7 C) all year round, it’s always comfortable to be outside.

cold thermogenesis in the ocean to supercharge your health.

The beach and ocean air have special healing properties.  Also, being next to the beach is a good temperature buffer so that the area is never too hot nor too cold.  Only by the coast is the temperature in California the best in the world.

The ocean area by us is the largest US national marine sanctuary and has a shoreline length of 276 miles.  Being protected, it means companies can’t drill, and there are much stricter laws against polluting, which means the ocean is even cleaner than other oceans (R).

The “Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary” Supports one of the world’s most diverse marine ecosystems, and it is home to numerous mammals, seabirds, fishes, invertebrates and plants in a remarkably productive coastal environment (R).

We also have equipment to ground our laptops while using it at the beach and smelling the ocean air.

Off gazing

The house is completely remodeled but had adequate time to off-gas, so you’re not breathing in the new-house chemicals. 

Mold issue

Dana did all of the necessary testing to make sure there was not a mold/biotoxin issue. 

Humidity

We have two dehumidifiers and a humidifier to keep to keep moisture at about 50%.  Too much over 50% causes bacterial and mold growth.

Grounding

The house has an area to ground – which isn’t always easy if you live in a big city.

Ground Floor

Two of the bedrooms are ground floor, which blocks off EMFs coming from below (ground blocks EMFs, which is why you can’t get service in a tunnel). Being on the ground also supposedly allows you to get more of the Schumann Resonance and the magnetic properties of the earth. These areas are not supported much by the scientific literature, but it’s believed that these have healthful properties (RR2).  At this stage, I don’t know what kind of effect this has.

California Pros Over Florida

I’ve researched all the areas to live, and there are only two warm states with coast lines that I’d live in.

I flew out and found a lot of places off the coast of West Florida (north and mid) and some small pockets of California that are ideal for a healing house.  

Most of the coast in California, especially in the south, is crossed off because of pollution of all kinds (air, noise, light, nnEMF) and overcrowding.  In Northern California, it gets too cold, and you don’t get enough UVB.  In southern California, it’s too crowded and polluted.  After Santa Barbara (such as Pismo) you start getting down winds from Diablo Nuclear.

When it comes down to it, I prefer California because Florida has too many mosquitos, is too humid, rains too much and for four months of the year is too hot. 

These factors make it much more annoying to be outside for longer.  You will live in an air conditioned room, and that’s not healthy.  Outside you have fresher air (more oxygen, less CO2, fewer contaminants like mold and you can ground).

The problem with living right by the beach in California is that it’s expensive no matter where you go along the coast, so this does make it less affordable to people who need it but don’t have money.

California Pros vs. Florida:

  • Less humid
  • Less mosquitos
  • Cool in the summer 
  • Warm in the winter…..the weather is an average of 65 degrees F (18.33 degrees Celsius) in December, January, and February)
  • National parks to camp and hike
  • Better views of mountains and beach
  • Closer to health scene
  • More organic food stores
  • People are more health-conscious and similar demographics
  • Close to international urban centers (San Francisco, LA)

 

 

An Eco-house (or eco-home) is an environmentally low-impact home designed and built using materials and technology that reduces its carbon footprint and lowers its energy needs.

An eco house could include some or all of the following:

  • Higher than normal levels of thermal insulation
  • Better than normal airtightness
  • Good levels of daylight
  • Passive solar orientation — glazing oriented south for light and heat
  • Thermal mass to absorb that solar heat
  • Minimum north-facing glazing — to reduce heat loss
  • Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) system
  • Heating from renewable resources (such as solar, heat pump or biomass)
  • Photovoltaic panels, small wind turbine or electricity from a ‘green’ supplier
  • Natural materials — avoidance of PVCu and other plastics
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Greywater collection
  • Composting toilet
  • Glass that has two or three layers with a vacuum in between to prevent heat loss; (double or triple-glazed windows)
  • Solar panels or wind turbines
  • Geothermal heating and growing plants on the roof to regulate temperature, quieten the house, and to produce oxygen
  • A vegetable patch outside the house for some food

The concept of an eco-house means a dwelling that has a low impact on the environment.

Buildings use up enormous amounts of energy. Some calculations make it as much as 70% of all the energy used in the UK when all the factors are taken into account. This energy is mainly for heating and lighting and therefore the aim is to design houses that are well insulated and make the best use of natural light.[1]

Increasing the amount of thermal insulation is the main component of preventing energy loss. This includes draft exclusion, glazing, wall and roof insulation.

Text under construction

In the northern hemisphere, a south facing site will be a much better location than a north facing site because of access to sunlight and protection from the cold northerly wind. An eco-house starts life facing the sun.[1]

Ideally the site for the house should have a south westerly aspect and be protected from the north and east. It’s not always possible to do this but there will usually be an opportunity to take advantage of the passive solar gain by having more glazing on either the front or the back of the building. Planting trees and creating wind breaks on the north and east sides of the site can enhanced the solar gain effect by protecting the house from the cold north easterly winds.

Having faced the house towards the sun, high performance windows are used to draw in as much light and warmth as possible. Sunlight then floods into the house and any heat generated is retained by a highly insulated building shell, draught proof windows and doors and thermal mass within the building.[1]

Orientation towards the sun also means that active solar systems can be fitted, both solar water heating panels and electricity generating solar panels on the roofs, further adding to the free heat and electricity gained from the sun.[1]

Living in the house also generates heat. Active human beings can produce as much heat as a one bar electric fire. Add to this heat from cooking, washing, lights etc. and you can begin to see how an eco-house could get too hot. Conventionally opening the windows reduces heat, but an eco-house design could include heat recovery ventilation systems. [1]

These systems extract the warm, moist air from bathrooms and kitchens and take the heat out of the stale, damp air before venting it outside. The heat recovery system transfers this collected heat to fresh air coming into the building and distributes it to the bedrooms and living rooms. Fresh air, at room temperature. An added benefit is that filters can be fitted on the air intake to provide a barrier to pollen or other irritants.[1]

With the passive and active solar gains, insulation, draft proofed building shell and heat recovery system, eco-houses could be zero heat, that is, in theory, you shouldn’t need to keep pumping heat into them from a central heating system. In practice life isn’t like that. Kids leave the door open, pets come in and out, people go out all day, cold snaps happen and some people like to sleep with the window open. An eco-house can incorporate design to have heating systems that can react quickly and efficiently to any changes in room temperature as well as providing a heat boost to the water temperature down-stream of the solar panels.[1]

Other benefits of an eco-house, aside from the obvious one of having minimal heating costs, are a healthy living environment. The heat recovery system can eliminate dampness and the moulds that are so often a health hazard. The air intake filters prevent dust coming in with the incoming fresh air and the internal vacuum cleaner system extracts dust from the house and vents it (via the dust collection bag and filter) to the outside, thus no microscopic particles of dust remain in the house.

Load bearing internal walls are minimised to allow rearrangements of the interior spaces, and the build technology is such that local trades can carry out alterations and easy maintenance.

For the health of the householder, and the planet, an eco-house should be built with materials that are free, wherever possible, from toxins or harmful products of the petro-chemical industry.[1]

One of the wider issues of energy efficiency is the embodied energy within the construction materials. (Embodied energy is the energy taken up with producing and transporting the materials used).[1]

Wood is a primary building material for eco-housing. This is because trees grow using energy from the sun, they don’t pollute, they produce oxygen, absorb CO2, they provide a wild life habitat, they can be replanted, they can be sourced locally, the timber can easily be put to some other use after a building is demolished.[1]

Cement is a very useful building material and there are places where we have to be practical and use it. However, one alternative to cement is lime. Lime has been used as a building material for thousands of years and although energy and CO2 are used in its production it gently returns back to limestone in time, taking in CO2 in the process.[1]

There is also the use reclaimed materials, particularly bricks, slates and roof tiles, to make use of the embodied energy within these materials. This can also help new buildings to blend in with their surroundings.[1]

  1. What is an eco-house”. The Living Village Trust.

In 1972 Street Farm applied their political aspirations and visions to the practical project of Street Farmhouse, in Eltham, London, the first intentionally constructed ecological house. This was designed and constructed by Graham Caine with the assistance of Bruce Haggart and other friends in 1972. The ecological house’s objective was to create an autonomous home that exploited reused materials and alternative technology, harnessing microgeneration and sewage recycling in order to liberate the occupants from dependence upon services provided by the state or private suppliers. Following a front page feature in The Observerby Gerald Leach the experimental house attracted considerable attention, chiming with emerging concerns about ecological sustainability and energy security.[3]Lord Holford commended Caine’s efforts in a debate in the House of Lords during a reading of the Protection of the Environment Bill in 1973.[4]Despite such attention, however, Street Farmhouse, was relatively short-lived. A request to extend the structure’s temporary planning permission on behalf of Graham Caine and his partner and daughter was refused, leading to the dismantlement of their home in 1975.[5]

Electro-Pollution (EMF) ◆ Areas of Concern and What You Can Do! • WiFi Router • Hardwire all devices with ethernet cables (use adapters if necessary) • Call service provider and disable WiFi • Baby Monitors • DIY hardwired security camera and monitor • Sound only monitor (greatly reduces EMF) • Smart Meters • Ask utility provider if they have an opt-out program • Use smart meter shielding equipment • Raise community awareness and petition if necessary (Take Back Your Power is an excellent documentary that you can educate others on about the dangers of smart meters) • Nearby Cell Towers and Antennas, Neighbors WiFi Routers and Smart Meters • Relocate • If relocating isn’t possible, use EMF window shielding and shielding paint Page 5 of 9 The Stern Method | Inspiration & Suggestions can be found at TheSternMethod.com/What-We-Use • Educate your community on the dangers of EMF • Dirty Electricity • Use dirty electricity filters • If building a new home, use shielded wiring (at least in places of most use, i.e. bedrooms and main living area) • Cell Phones / Tablets • Use a shielded case • Keep on airplane mode when not in use • Set down away from living space and near a window if possible to reduce phone “searching” for a signal • Use speaker phone or air tube ear buds • Computers / Video Game Consoles • Hardwire with ethernet cables • Use computer shielding blankets • Power Cords • Use power cord shields • Power Outlets • Use shielded outlets • Light Switches • Use shielded switches Whole Home or Large Area Electro Pollution (EMF) Solutions Professional Inspection & Remediation: Most cities have services that will come to your house with expensive equipment to test exposure and provide the best possible remediation plan. Handheld EMF Meter: Less expensive meters can be purchased for under $200 to give a very good idea of the general levels in each room of your home. Install Electric Kill Switches for Bedrooms or Turn of Breakers at Night: Wiring in most homes also emits harmful electric fields. An electrician can be hired to install a switch outside the bedrooms so that no electricity enters the room throughout the night. Moving the bed away from the wall is also a step in the right direction! Page 6 of 9 The Stern Method | Inspiration & Suggestions can be found at TheSternMethod.com/What-We-Use VI.

Sick Building Syndrome & Holistic Living Solutions Workshop

This Workshop is important because holistic medicine’s first task is to identify the deep underlying causes to diseases and many of these causes are found in one’s living area and in the workshopee’s lifestyle. Just the air inside most homes have been determined to be up to five times worse than the air pollution outside, wrote the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (ie, other sources say 10 times worse), while the W.H.O found that 4.3 million people die each year prematuraly from the air inside homes. (Source) To make matters worse, the non-profit Environmental Working Group tested over 2,000 cleaning products, and found that most of them contain chemicals that are linked to asthma, allergies, or even cancer. EWG found that, because American product manufacturers or distributors aren’t required to disclose all their ingredients, many of them don’t. Still worse, with electromagnetic and dirty electricity pollution, formaldehyde and arsenic in wood, lead in pipes, radon under the house, fire retardant outgasing from sofas and beds (toxic to the thyroid), mercury vapors in people’s mouths, deleterious bacteria and molds on the walls, and, among many other toxins, phthalate esters all over (ie, these are plasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC) materials used in floor and wall covering materials, shower curtains, adhesives, synthetic etc), people develop respiratory, cancer and auto-immunity diseases, all of these problems make up a new disease category called the “sick building syndrome”.

This workshop will also examine many toxic garden, toxic cloth, toxic body & home care products that are deleterious to health while not being effectively regulated by the Industry, let alone by the Government’s regulatory agencies.

Toxins are particularly relevant because many heavy metals and deleterious chemicals hinder the proper functioning of mammaliam metabolism, the repair genes, the mitochondria energy system, the immune system, the thyroid, the messaging molecules (cytokines, hormones, neuropeptides, neurotransmitters etc), genes’ co-factors, the microbiota, the metabolic detox pathways and the like. Two of many examples, when BPA and other obesogens latch on insulin receptors, insulin resistance is promoted, that which sets the stage for diabetes and early death (Source) and all the more so that animal saturated fat is abundant and exercises deficient. When heavy metals are present, Lyme’s bacteria become much stronger. There are hundreds of examples of this nature, a few of which will be discussed in this workshop.

Holistic Dwelling: integrating biophilic design, environmental psychology, and feng shui

Holistic Dwelling endeavors to explore different design methods to create a more conscientious approach to designing homes. The three approaches that are being utilized are environmental psychology, feng shui, and biophilic design. The study of these diverse methods gives a more extensive look at the concept of home, what has not previously been investigated. In this document each of these methods is examined, starting by looking at how the methods were developed over time. Theories, schools of thought, and popular studies, schools explored to fully understand each method. Beyond this background information, there are specific attributes from each method that are significant towards the design of a residence. At this point the methods interact with each other and how they overlap to agree on certain elements.

The final portion of this project is a design of a house that takes what has been discovered and tests it in a practical setting. The research does not support a total overlap that was initially hypothesized. However, for most attributes, there are at least two methods with recommendations, and at least one element within the attributes that two methods both agree upon as being beneficial. This comes from the different approaches and foci of environmental psychology, feng shui, and biophilic design. In architecture, the future inhabitants are important in the design process. To consider this aspect, a design project takes a practical took at the research. A small family volunteered to act as a client looking for a new single family residence on Peacham Pond in Vermont. Through a series of meetings, the client explained what they needed in the home and narrowed down specifically what layout they were interested in. The final design takes the attributes from the research and marries it with the input of the client. Beyond the building, the site and landscaping is taken into consideration since a common theme throughout biophilic design, environmental psychology and feng shui. The design is extensively analyzed against the attributes of the home identified in the research portion. The overarching objective of this document is to find a technique of designing homes that are more attuned to the well-being of the client. Since this is the environment where people consistently spend the most of their time, it needs take specific needs of individual clients into consideration. This document introduces a framework that aids in this process.

These are the Considerations for a Healthy Vibrant Conscious Spaces
for incorporating into the Architectural design process and for Teaching
1
Considerations for Designing

1.1 Geomancy, Geopathic Stress, Archaeology of the Site
The various earth energy grids which need to be harnessed for their positive aspects or avoided for their detrimental effect on health. These include Hartmann, Curry and Ley Lines etc.

1.2 Sick Building Syndrome

This is not just about physical materials, electromagnetic and air processing equipment. The combination of invisible atmospheric and earth forces has a significant effect on healthy spaces.

1.3 Guarding the Gateways – the subtle energies embedded in the land – the Spirit of Place Guardians.

1.4 Site Considerations

Geomantic Land Survey Mapping – Dowsing the natural earth energy grids, vortexes – energies which can enhance or devastate our health.

1.5 Resonance of Materials, their Consciousness and Health Values – Ectropy or Entropy
The natural qualities and vibrational energy signature of materials determines their life-force, thus the conscious energy value of a building, either sustaining or destroying life force chi. Working with the flow creating positive ordering, or against the flow creating friction and wasted kinetic energy.

1.6 Physical Materials and their effects on our health
Choosing materials for low impact on health.

1.7 Kinesiology – testing the energetic effects of various building materials on our personal fields

1.8 Electromagnetic Considerations

Our body has delicate electrical fields which can be devastated by electromagnetics thus causes major illnesses including cancer, ME, MS. Designing to reduce negative harmful energies affecting the land and buildings from electrical equipment such as power lines, sub-stations or from objects within the home such as transformers, televisions, computers, clock radios, electrical wiring, cell phones etc.

1.9 Killer Attics

Geometries which are out of harmonic resonance can damage our health and create illness. I have consulted on houses where one person nearly died from the effects generated by the fragmentation of the energy fields.
2 The Alchemy of Architecture – the Energetic Qualities of Buildings
2.1
What constitutes Healthy Space
2.2 Resonant Acoustic Frequency of Buildings and Space
Exploring the effects on the molecular structure of materials and space.

2.3 The Consciousness of Buildings and human Co-Creation of Reality

A building is a living organism with a conscious presence which requires honouring and listening to! How we feel in our buildings is a crucial part of the picture and this goes far beyond the physical 3-D elements of construction..
2.4 Soul-less Buildings – Are you feeling ‘at home’ where you live?

We often hear about buildings being Soul-less. This is because they have no Soul. We explore the cause of this and how it can be changed. Can the use of the element of water be used to ‘baptise’ and building! What allows us to feel ‘at home’ and in resonance with where we live?

. Are You feeling ‘at home’ where you live?

2.5 Ki (Energy) Signature and the Harmonic Code
The core software programming of buildings. How an architect can influence and change this blueprint. Fusion of past and present purpose and function of the land and buildings.

2.6 The Sweet Spot – the Core Essence of the Building
All buildings have a seed point, that which holds the coded essence of the consciousness of that building. Finding it, and working with it, is a powerful generator for change.

2.7 The Correlation of Buildings and People

Our spaces reflect our inner subconscious thoughts, feelings, emotions and belief patterns. The correlation of People and the energetic atmosphere of their homes, land and environment. Case studies of personal health problems caused by ‘bad’ buildings and land.
3
Considerations underlying Architectural Design
3.1 Sacred Geometry, Music – The Golden Mean – Fibonacci
The correlation between Architecture and Music – Harmonic, Arithmetic & Geometric proportions, musical ratios. The building resonating as a musical instrument. As Pythagoras says “There is geometry in the humming of the strings… there is music in the spacing of the spheres”

3.2 Earth Grid Morphic Resonance – The Unified Field – a Musical Harmonic
The natural earth grid holds the consciousness and intelligence of the planet. Activating the key node points through ‘ceremony’ enables the music to resonate around the globe.

3.3 Bio-Organic Architecture and Life Force Charge
Creating geometries of natural forms. A life or death situation. Chi energy values of various materials and the effects on people. Combinations of materials for maximising the chi energy charge in our buildings. As nature designs to pure geometry for holding the charge to sustain life force, this can be reflected in architecture for maximising wellbeing for people.

3.4 Crop Formation Geometries
Crop formations are 3 Dimensional geometries which translate to musical harmonics – see my workshop presentation video on the Music of Crop Formations at the Crop Circle Conference Devizes 2002

3.5 Comparative Mythology
Considering how various cultures and civilisations speak about the same principles but expressed in differing ways according to the time and place in history.

4 The Environmental Psychology of Space
4.1 Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra
Fundamental principles of Chinese and Vedic (Indian) systems, both with over 5,000 years of a knowledge base. Simple but powerful introduction to principles which you can apply to your clients homes to enhance the areas of life which you wish to address including Health, Relationships, Wealth, Career etc.

Often called the art of placement, the location of various elements in a proposed design can either help or hinder the initial acquisition of the project, the design and town planning process, construction and ongoing use and even the final sale or rental of property.

4.2 Landscape Form School Principles – Land to Buildings Relationships

The Location and Orientation of Buildings within the landscape is a powerful generator of energy both for the property and the occupants.

The traditional concept widely used in many cultures, mostly know in China and feng shui, is what is called the ‘Landscape Form School’ of feng shui which works with the balance of mountains, hills, streams and lakes etc.

Our Ancient forefathers worked with these principles that varied only in the outer expression of the civilization and thus the interpretation of their time. The power of these principles still holds, and when adapted to contemporary projects, can only benefit the various design and build processes. Places such as Hong Kong hold this formation thus great financial success.
4.3 Astrological and Compass alignment of the buildings and site
Systems like Flying Star astrology in feng shui and 9 Star Ki which give the life signature of a building and a site, can be most useful in the design process in knowing where the gates of energy are entering both now and in the future.

4.4 The 16 Energy Gates

A building can be designed for best alignment to one of the 16 compass orientations. As time moves on, the entrances, the physical or etheric gateways and portals, may need to be adjusted to align with maximum atmospheric energy flows. The design should accommodate this.
4.5 The Emotions of Buildings and Spaces – can a building have an emotion, a chakra point?

4.6 Memory in the Fields
Experience tells us that even though a building may be raised to the ground memory still remains in the etheric energy fields unless cleared. Sites which have been bomb or trauma damaged will hold patterns, left over scars, in which future occupants will experience the memory vibration and keep the site in negative emotion and possibly experience similar disasters! Examples are the Sony centre in Berlin, Chernobyl and Ground Zero.

4.7 Buildings that Breathe
Designing buildings to allow them to energetically ‘breathe’ will allow the occupants to do the same. The natural flow of atmospheric energies when in right alignment to the site and the building, can enhance the experiential value.

4.8 Buildings that Pulse – the Heartbeat
The rhythm of a building is its heartbeat. The repetition of building elements such as columns can set the rhythmic pulse in alignment with the energy of the earth and thus enhance the natural health aspects for the occupants.

4.9 Buildings that ‘Sing’ – The Melodic Line within the Harmony

The thread of life running through a building is its story… how does that relate to its occupants?

The Landscape modulating the sounds of nature, local speech patterns and intonation.
5
Other factors influencing quality of space

5.1 Yin/Yang – The balance and weave of male/female energies in a building

5.2 The 5 Elements

Working with the physical and subtle elements of water, wood, fire, earth, metal. The nourishing and destructive cycles.

5.3 Colour
The vibrational qualities of colour affect our outlook, wellbeing and health. For each of us, we respond differently depending on our own energetic energy fields and chakra balance. A building responds in the same way. There are no hard and fast rules or formulas for the perfect colours. We look at an approach for choosing colours which is a direct response of the land, the building and of the individual people in residence.

5.4 Personal chi levels, protection from negative energies

5.5
Paranormal Activity

and other psychic energies which can influence the design, planning authority applications and the construction process.

5.6 Space Clearing and Alignment
Process of Reading the energetic blueprint of a space and finding Resolution through Psychotherapeutic processes and the Regression of space

6
Dynamics of the land – the Site

6.1
Energy Mapping of Land – Locating building zones for the most propitious health and wellbeing.
. . . . . . . .

6.2 Water Dragons
Locating and working with natural flows of visible or underground ‘water dragon’ energy flows, will empower the energy of the site. Lakes and ponds will create an affect depending on their orientation to the building.

6.3 GeoBiology – What on Earth is going on!
The quality of the soil and deeper down. What energy lines are running in the veins of the earth.
Is the earth giving permission for the project to go ahead? If ‘YES’ then this can assist the entire process from design, obtaining planning permissions through to an efficient construction process which benefits all from a time and financial point of view. If the earth says ‘NO’ then the entire process can be marred with planning refusals, construction delays which are all too common in the construction industry.

6.4 Blueprints of Disaster – Do NOT build on damaged Land. Is it truly virgin land?
Predecessor Energy
Whatever has happened on the land or within the building, will have left an imprint, and thus influence the success of the project and health and emotional wellbeing of future occupants. Past actions leave residual memory – Case Studies.

6.5 Dowsing – an introduction to the art and science of dowsing using L-rods and our own bodily senses
Feeling the earth energies of different sites on the land. Learning basic but powerful physical and energetic techniques for tuning into the energies of the land, natural forms, trees etc. in order to develop a greater relationship to your project landscape and the earth.

6.6 Ancestors – what were there thoughts and thus imprints left on the land.

Events of past generations such as battle, trauma and even murder, leave scars deep in the psyche of the land, buildings and people. The ripple imprint effect left in the etheric matrix of space has consequences to life now and potentially to future generations unless brought to resolution. Illnesses, including cancer can affect current residents if someone who lived on the land or in the house before, suffered the same illness.

The importance of honouring the land and the ancestors – Case Studies
7 Designing the Building
7.1 Designing a new House or Commercial Building
using the principles above of sacred geomancy, geometry, feng shui etc. including colours, materials and finishes.

7.2 Energies out of balance can hinder the design and construction process.

7.3 Town Planning Local Authority Phase
Issues encountered with the local authority planners, can often be attributed to the energetics of the land, any existing buildings, and particularly with what has happened there before as described above. For example, the traditional battles drawn up by neighbours and local councilors can be a reflection of past battles and trauma on the land or in the existing buildings. Consider this – if the soul of a building does NOT want to be split up and fragmented, it will express itself through the people who oppose the planning application!

! 7.4 Change of Use
What is not often considered is asking the earth, or the spirit of the building, if t wants to change, a basic psychotherapeutic approach!
8
Construction Phase
8.1 Ground breaking and other Ceremonies
to honour the land. Setting a precedent of right approach for the construction work to begin. Gratitude is great attitude

8.2 The Building Process -Various ceremonies carried out throughout the entire construction process.

Space Clearing Alignment to maintain the highest levels of chi to benefit the entire project team. Energies out of balance can hinder the construction process.
8.3 Architect holding the Vision in mind of the finished Building throughout the construction process – either as or with the Project Manager

By holding the vision of the original design concept in mind, the energetic fields containing the memory of the completed building is kept within the highest potential for success of the construction phase. This enables the construction process to proceed at its greatest efficiency throughout every level and every trade.
9 Commissioning Phase
9.1 Activating the Energy Fields
for the building to come ‘alive’. The Etheric Geometric Energy Fields of a building can be activated to achieve it’s full potential by energizing the molecular structures. Happy Molecules!

9.2 Tuning the Building and the land like a musical instrument
Tuning up the building and maintaining the highest level of vibration and clarity of purpose and efficient running at the energetic level. Like a musical instrument. Etheric fields are geometrical in nature and the correct alignment of these fields will enable smoother flows of energy within the physical and etheric structure.

9.3 The End Product
A Happy & Healthy Building serving all levels and needs of its occupants – physical, emotional and spiritual. Happy Bricks!
