The signs and symptoms of Geopathic stress will vary from person to person and place to place depending on -

  • the individual pathologies of the people inhabiting the space
    the age and general health of the inhabitants
    the type of geopathic stress and the geology of the area
    the severity of the the Geopathic stress and other contributing factors, such as techno stress
    the health of the earth and the ability it has to “breath” and therefore detoxify
    the form of the built and natural environment
    the climate

No symptom should be viewed in isolation, and in particular remembering that is website is not equipped to give medical opinion.

These signs and symptom may be evident and exacerbated when there is Geopathic Stress present. They are listed here in no particular order.

Behavioural Problems

    Bed wetting, Tantrums, lying,

    Physical, Sexual, or Verbal Abuse of Children and Spouses

    Stressed relationships
    Hostile staff relations,

    Road Rage

    Location specific aggression

    Bad Neighbour Syndrome

    Bad neighbour syndrome can frequently be traced to a Sha stream flowing from aggressor to victim.

Social Unrest

      Social symptoms can include vandalism, burglary, fighting and warfare, corruption, financial decay, and bad luck in all its forms.  

Sick Building Syndrome

      The World Health Organisation estimate that 30% of offices, hotels, institutions and industrial premises have SBS. causing: headaches, tension between staff, lethargy, respiratory infection, dry skin and throat, eye symptoms, loss of concentration, depression, stress and fatigue, leading to a high rate of absenteeism, increased staff turnover, and lowered morale. While electro-, micro-, and radio wave and chemical pollution are undoubtedly major factors, SBS is generally rooted in the presence of Sha streams under the property.  Sha Qi can be spread from the path of the streams throughout a building by the steel construction frame, wiring loom and pipework, just as it is spread along railway tracks or a metal bed frame.   Thus a steel-framed cattle shed with Sha streams running through it will usually feel much more unhappy than a brick and wood barn.

Geopsychic Stress

      Hauntings of earth-bound human ghosts and other entities, including poltergeist activity are invariably tied to negative earth energies. Ghost and spirit release and exorcism performed without attention to cleaning up the local earth energies can sometimes result in a new crop in the next day.

      Dislocated nature spirits and disturbed landscape entities can also hold trauma to the earth’s etheric web within the landscape, and are often the bearers of emotion (apathy, grief, fear, anger, etc.) in the atmosphere of a place.

      Predecessor Qi (memory and atmosphere of past events in a place) will be thicker and more troublesome with GS.

Physical Decay

      The path of a Sha stream can often be traced within the home by following the piles of chronically unresolved clutter across a house.   Other clues include piles of rubbish, cracks in glass, brick and plasterwork, recurring mechanical and electrical breakdowns, derelict areas, and accident blackspots both within the home and outside.   Fruit and vegetables, grain, ale, cheese, jam, wine and photographic film will all spoil quickly when stored in the wrong place.

Recurrent Bad Luck

Poor workmanship

Difficulty selling a property


      In the animal realm, most mammals instinctively avoid spending time over Sha streams, gravitating instead to Sheng Qi streams i.e. the healthy, free-flowing earth meridians.  Dogs will instinctively avoid kennels and beds on GS lines, though obedience to their human’s instructions can be the death of them. Birds are reckoned to be most sensitive, and horses most resilient, though many chronically ill or injury-prone horses are found to be stabled on Sha streams.  

      Cats, owls, corvids, snakes, slugs and snails are however attracted to Sha streams, and a cat’s  favourite  sleeping  place (in the absence of an obvious source of warmth) is very often a sure clue to the location of a Sha stream crossing. Local cats will gather in the neighbourhood GS hot-spot. A cat who regularly sleeps in the same spot on a bed is certainly performing a diagnostic, and possibly a protective function, though if the GS is too strong the cat will also suffer. Insects, parasites, bacteria and viruses also thrive on Sha streams, and ant and wasp nests invariably provide a similar clue: thus a Sha stream is the right location for a beehive.


      Clues to the path of a Sha stream in the vegetable world include lightning-struck trees, dead or stunted gaps in hedges and avenues of trees, infertile fruit trees, cankers, and strangely twisted trees (usually in the direction of current flow).  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, while vegetable gardens will reveal stunted or mutated growth, especially along the edge lines of the Sha streams.

      Ivy, bindweed, nettles, docks, thistles, foxgloves, ferns and nightshades are naturally attracted, and indeed the appropriate medicinal herbs for a sick person are usually to be found in the garden along the path of a Sha stream running though their bed.
