If you have been treated by an acupuncturist or energy worker (such as a Reiki practitioner), you are aware of meridians in the body. Meridians channel the flow of energy and can become blocked or stagnant. When this happens, it can result in health consequences.
The same is true of Mother Earth. Blocked meridians can cause geopathic stress. Geo means of the earth. Pathic implies the path it takes, and in this case, means our reaction to the earth (how we experience it or its effects). With my background in disaster recovery and business continuity, let me explain geopathic stress another way. The earth’s crust is constantly shifting. You’re aware that an earthquake with a Richter scale reading of four or higher can cause buildings and roads to rumble and crack. An earthquake with a Richter of seven or more can affect the earth’s axis. When an earthquake happens, there can be aftershocks that continue to disrupt the land. Also, when an earthquake happens, there is a reverberation that takes place elsewhere (such as surrounding areas or even in faraway lands). Therefore, the earth’s crust is constantly shifting and changing. As it does, it releases energy.
When people and animals are on or near the release of geopathic stress, there are effects. A few examples of this: It can cause agitation leading to abuse; disrupt sleep; affect learning disabilities and hyperactivity; impact fertility, childbirth, and miscarriage; increase fatigue and allergies; and it has been shown that in divorce – one or both people have been exposed to geopathic stress.

Studies have shown that over 85% of patients who die from cancer have experienced regular exposure to geopathic stress. Ernst Hartmann, MD, wrote that “Cancer is a disease of location triggered off by geopathic stress. We all produce cancerous cells on a regular basis, but they are continuously destroyed by our body’s immune system. Geopathic stress does not cause cancer, but weakens our immune system.”
