A Multi Disciplinary Approach To Vaastu Energy


Geopathic Stress

What is Geopathic Stress?

There are many defects seen through using Vedic Vastu norms and the other is Geopathy Stress as seen through modern science known as ‘Bau-Biologie’, the ‘Science of Building’ and the defect is commonly understood in Europe as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’. The most understood factors disturbing is Geopathy Stress, E-Smog, and Electro-magnetic Radiations.


‘Geo’ means Earth and ‘Pathos’ means suffering. It means suffering from the Earth, which causes stress in the form of illness. Geopathic means related to the Earth. Geopathic Stress is the term used for natural or man-made energies emanating from the Earth and which are detrimental to human health. Geopathic Stress is the name given to the effect on your body of harmful Earth radiation. Geopathic Stress, or harmful Earth rays, or geo-stress, or electro-stress can result from natural radiation which rises up through the Earth and is distorted by weak electro-magnetic fields created by subterranean (underground) running water, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities.

The wavelength of the natural radiation disturbed in this way becomes harmful to living organisms. Man-made disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field include mining, foundations for tall buildings, underground transport systems and public utilities (sewage, water and so on). The natural radiation disturbs magnetic, electric, electromagnetic field of living organisms (our body, animals, plants, electrical and electronic devices, etc.) this way becomes harmful to all.

Nowadays people may live in the same building for many years and their exposure to a particular form of negative energy or environment pollution could last a long time that can cause discomfort and ill health in human beings. Geopathic energies pass through walls, windows and closed doors and they do not recognize boundaries. Geopathic stress created by radiations and waves makes a building sick, which is also called ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ in technical term, as explained above.

Evidently, Vastu is akin to the Science of Geopathy, the ‘Study of the Diseases linked to the Earth’. Geopathic Stress and related problems are growing day by day. A good Vastu, Feng Shui expert or a Geomancer can understand better how to deal with Geopathic Stress. It is an art for detecting and providing appropriate solution to them.


We usually sleep for about seven to eight hours in the same spot, or sit at work for more than eight hours in the same spot, and if that is what is called a Geopathically Stressed Zone, some problem will eventually arise because of that. This Zone can be created by the disturbance because of water veins, fault zones or areas of geomagnetic disturbance because of this health hazards observed over many centuries in dwellings previously built on such sites. Vastu Shastra has also identified them as per deficiency of any element out of the Five Elements (‘Panchbhootas’). Let us study how these zones disturb us. The reason may be any of the following:

The Earth has a natural magnetic field; it acts as though it has a large magnet at its center. The rotation of the Earth creates electric currents in the molten metals found within the Earth’s core, thereby producing a magnetic field. When the Earth’s magnetic field is disturbed, either naturally or artificially then it causes Geopathic Stress due to the Hartmann Lines/ Net/ Grid, Curry Grid/ Lines, Black Lines, Ley Lines, etc.

The Hartmann Grid:

It is already scientifically proved that Earth is gridded with electromagnetic Earth currents from the Earth called telluric lines. These electromagnetic energy lines have a wave pattern and flow in a form of grids. There are different kinds of electromagnetic Earth currents. The first is Hartmann Grid, which is named after Dr. Ernst Hartmann, who discovered it. These grids or lines run north to south as well as east to west, forming a checkerboard pattern with a 12 foot square grid and lines about four inches wide. At full moon, they may be wider. The distance between the lines may vary in different areas. This far north of the equator, the lines of the Hartmann grid are only 12 feet apart, which means they are not very far apart, and some will be found underneath your home. Closer to the equator, they are about 17 feet apart, and they are wider and much less intense. These lines are actually rays projecting straight up from the ground, and it does not matter whether you are on the first floor or the fortieth floor because these lines can be 50 km upward to the sky. In addition, we cannot found how deep the lines go. Their depth would depend on how much crystal there is in the rock.

The Curry Grid:

The Curry Grid runs diagonal to the Hartmann Grid, running from North-West to South-East, South-West to North-East, and one grid lies on top of the other. The Curry Grid is 25 to 50 feet apart, so the Curry is not under every home. The Hartmann always is, but the Curry is not. Dr. Manfred Curry discovered this Curry Grid.

Ley Lines:

Ley lines are apparent alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths that are thought by certain adherents to ‘Dowsing’ and ‘New Age Beliefs’, to have spiritual power. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, in his book The Old Straight Track. The believers in Ley lines think that the lines and their intersection points resonate a special psychic or mystical energy. Ascribing such characteristics to Ley lines has led to the term being classified as pseudoscience.

Black Lines:

Black lines seem to be naturally generated, although quite how is not known. They may be localized and do not form a network in the same way as Hartmann and Curry lines. This could be similar in nature to the ‘negative energy’ of ancient Indian architectural science ‘Vastu Shastra’ and also the ‘sha’, or deadly energy lines of Chinese ‘Feng-Shui’. They can be curved, straight, at ground level or higher, even found in the upper levels of buildings. There have been described two types of Black lines, one as "black and depressed" and the other as "shiny, black, hard and sharp." They could possibly represent the flow lines of a negative type of "orgone-type" energy as described by Wilhelm Reich.

Under Ground Water Veins:

The other phenomenon we have is water veins. This is water actually travelling in the rock. So where two water veins intersect or where water intersects with the Curry is a very dangerous place to be sleeping. When you have all the grids together, with the Curry line on top of the Hartmann, and the water veins as well, you could experience serious diseases at the crossings. If you are sleeping over the Hartmann crossings, it may generally be the cause of less serious diseases such as arthritis.

Underground Earth System:

Every electrical installation is grounded; every building, every transformer, roughly every electric pole along the road is grounded. Since everything is grounded, it causes a certain amount of electricity to go into the soil. We usually measure what goes into the atmosphere and how it affects human health, but whatever goes into the air is not the most serious problem but yes, it is a problem. However, what is coming up out of the Earth is become a big problem for us now.

Natural disturbances to the Earth’s magnetic field include geological faults, underground ore masses and underground water, particularly running water. Earthquakes and running underground water can slowly erode rock and have a destabilizing effect. Natural radiations that rise up through the Earth are distorted by week electro-magnetic fields crested by subterranean running water creating mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities. The wavelength of the natural radiation disturbed in this way becomes harmful to living organisms.

Sleeping in a Geopathic Stress is very stressful, as a large area of your body is exposed to the Geopathic Stress. Most of us sleep during the night, when the Geopathic Stress is stronger. During sleep, your brain is supposed to rest half the time and is busy healing your body the other half. However, if you are sleeping on Gepopathic Stress, during sleep, your brain has to spend all of its time working due to the strain of Geopathic Stress and you wake up tired. The impact of sleeping on Geopathic Stress is low immunity, which manifests in some diseases.

During sleep, your brain is occupied in creating your new cells, giving the right signals for your body to operate properly and absorb the correct level of vitamins and minerals together with adjusting hormone balance. Geopathic Stress will interfere with this process and leave your immune system weak. It directly does not give you any disease but weakens your immunity. All these body functions will usually become normal very quickly after Geopathic Stress has cleared out of your system.

Apparent side effects of GEOPATHIC STRESS

  • Deep effect on Lymphatic System at Cellular Level.
  • Effect on Immune System, poor resistance to Colds and Coughs.
  • Negative effect on Brain Functions and Rhythms.
  • Prevents the body from absorbing essential Vitamins, Minerals and Trace Minerals.
  • Negative effect on water, stored underground.


Geopathic Stress acts differently upon different people, so no one list is going to be definitive for everyone. There are many telltale signs of Geopathic Stress. There are however no conditions that can be exclusively attributed to Geopathic Stress. That said, however, there are some symptoms, which are more common than others are:

  • Persistent low-level illness, chronic body pains, headaches, sudden signs of physical aging, irritability, behavioral problem.
  • A history of serious disease (especially cancer, paralysis, etc.,) or death in the home over the lifetime of the building.
  • Infertility and miscarriages.
  • Suicidal attempt, divorces.
  • Tensions or arguments in the family, which go beyond the ‘normal’ familial stress.
  • Severe headaches and cause not known, sleep disorders, grinding of teeth, nightmares, feel like running away from house, life  and organ damaging diseases, confusions and loss of memory.
  • Not responding to the long-term treatment of medicines.
  • You never feel fresh when you get up in the morning.
  • You are restless in the sleep or you do not have a sound sleep at home but when you change your sleeping place or when you go out on your holidays you experience a very good sleep.
  • Grinding of your teeth while sleeping.
  • Stress and a general feeling of nervousness, Exhaustion and Depression or a feeling of unhappiness.
  • Neurological disabilities in children.
  • Babies not sleeping well.
  • Hyperactive children and children with attention/learning problems.
  • Persistent bedwetting in children, tense or crying babies (they are more sensitive than ‘grown ups’).
  • Loss of appetite or over eating, hormonal imbalances, mood disorder.
  • Taste of food changes after few minute of preparation.
  • Piles of rubbish, cracks in glass, brick and plasterwork, recurring mechanical and electrical breakdowns, water leaks, derelict areas, and accident black spots both within the home and outside. Areas which are inexplicably cold or damp or have strange smells.
  • Fruit and vegetables, grain, ale, cheese, jam; wine and photographic film will all spoil quickly when stored on a Geopathic Stress.
  • Sick building syndrome is generally rooted in the presence of Geopathic Stress under the property. ‘Sha’ ‘Chi’ can be spread from the paths of the streams throughout the building by the steel construction frames, wiring loom and pipe work, just as it is spread along railway tracks.
  • An unwillingness to go into certain areas. Haunting of earth-bound human ghosts and other entities, including poltergeist activity are invariably tied to negative earth energies.
  •  ‘Paranormal’ activities, feeling presence of unknown, bed screaming, frightful appearance.
  • Environmental aggression: it is mainly caused to the presence of an object, place, person, living being, pollution around or anything around which is resonating in a detrimental manner.
  • Bad neighbor syndrome can frequently be traced to a Geopathic Stress flowing from aggressor to victim.

There are also more subtle indicators such as:

  • History of neighbors with persistent illnesses.
  • Health and wealth issues after moving to the house.
  • History of the previous occupants suffering from longterm illness, financial loss or prone to tragedies.
  • Feeling hungrier than you think you should be.
  • Having a greater need to urinate when in this place particularly relevant to people with urinary problems.
  • Excessive problems with mould, lichen or moss.
  • Electric Meter box on bedroom walls.
  • Large transformers or high voltage power lines nearby or overhead.
  • A large water body nearby.

As we said, Geopathic Stress acts differently upon different animals and birds.

  • Cats, owls, snakes and snails are attracted to black streams, and a cat’s favorite sleeping place, therefore, if your cat sleeps on your lap only when you are in one particular chair at a particular place, it may in fact be soaking up the negative energies in that spot, rather than being affectionate
  • Insects, parasites, bacteria and viruses also thrive on Geopathic Stress, and ants, bees and wasps’ nests invariably provide a similar clue.

In the vegetable world clues include:

  • Lightning-struck trees dead or stunted gaps in hedges and avenues of trees, infertile fruit trees, cankers, and strangely twisted trees.
  • Fruit trees are the most sensitive, while oaks, redwoods and ashes are more resilient, and elders seem to be positively attracted.
  • Lawns will often betray bare patches, moss, silver weed and fungi.
  • Vegetable gardens will reveal stunted or mutated growth, especially along the Geopathic Stress.
  • Ivy, bindweed, nettles, docks, thistles, foxgloves, ferns and nightshades are naturally attracted.

All of these symptoms are practical signs of how Geopathic Stress lines affect us. If you suspect that, you may have Geopathic Stress in your home or work place get it checked immediately. It really is easy to fix and you should do it now.


Correcting Geopathic disturbances is not always difficult and complicated, although sometimes it can be. The first and simplest solution is to try moving the bed or desk to a different place.

Sometimes people’s health and well-being improves dramatically from this one simple measure. It is not a good idea to place the bed or desk where a cat likes to sleep a spot favored by a dog is a much better place. Geopathic energies can be handled in several different ways:

1. They can be reflected or refracted or bounced

2. Absorbed

3. Blocked or protected

Protection is very important factors in Vastu/Fengshui of a location. Creating a row of plants/trees. Constructing a fence and 3’ feet height wall. Reflectors send the destructive effect back to the harmful object. (Small objects with small mirror, large mirror to reflect a large structure.) Absorbers are design to absorb destructive object and prevent it from spreading (Ex:-A sand pit can be positioned to counter the effect of an antenna that is pointing down form a hill top). Deflectors are designed to redirect the path of destructive energy away from the building such as mirrors (Be careful while placing deflectors it can send destructive energy to Neighboring house and harm the occupants). Bouncers are designed to bounce the effect of harmful structures away from the building. (A bouncer includes – coil springs, a baseball bat or boxing gloves pictures of these objects). Blockers are designed to stop an incoming destructive effect and prevent it from entering  Windows with permanent shutters are the most common kind of blocker.

Different types of energies need to be corrected in different ways, in one case, reflecting energy may be appropriate, in another it may be appropriate to block it. It is vitally important, that whatever method is used, the undesirable energies are not reflected to affect someone else.


Ancient texts written by Vishwakarma, Varahamithra refer to Building Biology as an interplay of divine energies. Geopathic Stress is one of these energies which can be both destructive and constructive to human development. Our ancient people knew of these Earth energies and their powerful influence on people and they knew how to balance these energies. Some cultures built pyramids in different parts of the world.

Vastu knowledge has a vast base of remedial Vastu techniques to remove all kinds of faults and shortcomings at the land, property or its interior arrangements as well as the environment. We all care about our homes and spend time, effort, and money to make them more comfortable. For most people, buying a house is one of the biggest investments of their lives.

Your home, its non-Vastu compliant architecture, may damage inhabitants’ health; contaminate the air you breathe and the water you drink, without your being aware of it. Similarly, at work places, environmental stress contributes to overall strain, preventing one from reaching one’s full potential. Resisting these external forces is imperative for growth and development. Watch where the cat is sleeping, or the dog to understand the Geopathic Stress Zone.

Any energy harming the cell (human) can be called Negative Energy. These are of various kinds and can be broadly classified into (1) Geopathic Stress, (2) Negative Infrared Radiation, and (3) Negative Ultraviolet Radiation. If a person's body contains these energies then it means that this person has picked up these energies from either his house or his office where he is exposed for a long time.

A well experienced Vastu Expert can identify these fields and neutralize them. Vastu Tools and Technologies, Methods and Products which not only protect your health, wealth and the world around you, but actually enhance the spiritual, emotional, and mental quality of your daily experience. You accomplish this by literally living in harmony with Earth Energy, Global Energy  and Cosmic Energy.

Geopathic Stress synonymous with the Vastu Defects can be minimized using very effective tools having proven powers of reflecting or refracting or bouncing, absorbing and blocking the negative energies at a particular place or structure. These tools are in harmony with the Geopathic energies as described above. Some of the tools include Vedic ‘Yantras’, different specialized Pyramids, Crystals and chanting of the Vedic ‘Mantras’. Specifically programmed crystals around the house, some may be buried in the ground, and this starts the grid lines swirling and mixing. Counter-clockwise is a healing energy (North-Pole Energy) and clockwise is a stimulating energy (South-Pole Energy).
