Is There a Place for Geomancy Today? by Tim Walter

Geomancy is a bizarre and highly contentious approach to mental wellness and spiritual harmony. ‘Geomancy’ isn’t even the correct term for the work that people such as myself do. I said as much in one of my recent YouTube videos . There isn’t really a label that is ‘correct’ for this practice. We use ‘Geomancy’ as that is the closest label we have and most people recognise what is being identified with such a label. Given that modern Geomancy has no official structure, and what each geomancer provides their clients is different, is there really a place for Geomancy in our modern world?

Modern Geomancy

Rather predictably, I would of course respond by saying, ‘yes’. Modern Geomancy can be an effective way to help people find more peace and confidence in their worlds. This is particularly the case when combined with a “talking-cure”. It is a way for people to discover “who they are” and deal with past emotional issues or trauma. Geomancy does so by assisting people see how they are intimately connected to their surroundings, to their world around them. The location of detrimental aspects such as water lines or toxic lines can sometimes be seen symbolically on a floorplan.  For example, more than once I have found detrimental earth energy spirals or lines blocking the front door of house in which the owner is self-employed and is either wanting to embark upon a new direction for their business or they can’t figure why they have been unable to start a new aspect of their work. Remove these detrimental lines or spirals by asking the Management to re-balance them and the person suddenly finds the momentum they had been missing.

While modern geomancy is very far from the mainstream in terms of a wellness modality, a practitioner usually uses some very mainstream practices such as mindfulness and meditation to access their intuition to provide accurate dowsing results. While these are all spiritual practices the whole experience can be quite grounded and down to earth. Indeed, as those of you who regularly meditate will know, it is very important to be as grounded as possible when immersing one’s self in spiritual activities in order to retain the ‘balance of being’.

When I say my clients are intimately connected to their surroundings I am suggesting this interconnectedness exists at a very deep, a ‘star-stuff’ level. We as a species are ‘of the earth’, we are of the cosmos; we share the same basic building blocks and our minds have the ability to interact with these facets of creation because our minds form a major part of the way this reality is presented to us. Day to day, however, we often feel adrift, unconnected, free (or depending upon your viewpoint) lonely, beings. Each of us appears completely separate from everything around us, even from our loved ones.

But Geomancy can help us feel far more connected. It can be a paradigm shifting process as it is as much about an attitude to life, hence a philosophical exercise, as much as it is a physical interaction. Geomancy works through a combination of belief and a very ‘real’ cocktail of energies and mind-bending potentially mystical concepts all of which occur in our reality in a specific time and space. Sounds like nonsense of course, as we are not used to using these sort of descriptions to portray our experience of life.

When I talk about a person’s ‘belief’ I am not referring to belief as part of the common perception of the placebo effect, but of belief being part of the individual’s general daily modus operandi. There can be a fundamental shift in the perceptions of an individual mindset, albeit at a very subtle level to their surroundings. These shifts are apparent in comments I sometimes receive after working on a home., For instance this one recently, “We have noticed a difference in the house …  it seems to feel less crowded and the air seems clearer” or this one from a client at the end of last year, “You have really changed the energy of the house and the way I live in it.”

Geomancy or ‘reality engineering’?

Often as Geomancers we are working with people who have a level of fear built into their life-script, (‘life script’ being one’s perspective from which they perceive everything around them and which leads their individual psychological/perceptual biases). Often fear is deeply rooted in the subconscious and it is only when any therapist or wellness provider highlights the issues or the person removes the issues that is causing the fear that they recognise a sense of freedom within themselves.

Geomancy highlights issues in a person’s surroundings that can be changed (by the intervention of the Management upstairs) in order that the person feels more at ease and more suited to their own immediate environment. A Geomancer will change subtle aspects of a person’s environment but the change is felt within the person. It is a perception of how they feel within the house and therefore within themselves. This subtle shift affects the mind’s daily biases and the mechanism of reality co-creation around them.

What I find particularly interesting is the amount of times that the surrounding neighbourhood of a client to start to improve after a Geomancy re-balancing. Health food shops have a habit of opening up near by and creative courses are suddenly offered by local libraries, church halls, social clubs or suchlike. It is no surprise really when what we are changing is the client’s perception of their world. Once the client’s perception of their world changes they are open to new things being present in that world that they hadn’t noticed before. So, in this sense I like to call what I do with clients ‘reality engineering’. It’s is only a label, but I like its implications. And as far as I am concerned if that makes a person’s life on earth more rewarding and fulfilling then no matter how ‘woo-woo’ or ‘wacky’ it may first appear to a mainstream perspective, there will always be a place for reality engineering.

Navigating Your Future – Thoughts From the Wisdom Keepers by George Cappannelli

| by George Cappannelli

Those of us who weren’t born yesterday and haven’t been hanging out with Rip Van Winkle in Sleepy Hollow, know we are in a time unlike any before it. In addition to the many challenges we face – climate change, energy, education, healthcare, immigration, wealth inequality, gender and minority inequality to name a few — we are also in a demographic revolution that will, over the next several decades, result in 50% of our population here in the U.S and Canada and in every industrialized country in the world being over 50 for the first time in history. Increasing longevity, decreasing birth rates and shrinking tax base are just a few of the startling and relatively immediate implications this demographic revolution will have for those of us who are older GenXers, Boomers and Elders here in North America and billions more around the world.

David Young: Farmer and Beekeeper in New Orlean’s 9th Ward

David Young, a retired police chief from Indiana, first came to New Orleans in 2010 for a visit. Responding to what he called, “A calling from God,” he stayed. Drawn to the desolate landscape of the Ninth Ward, still heavily damaged from hurricane Katrina, Young started his first garden in one of the vacant abandoned lots there. Now that garden hosts bees, goats, chickens, and a koi pond, as well as helping to feed the neighborhood. One lot let to another, and now Young has over 30 gardens and orchards and 60 beehives. Sensing a need in a community where the closest grocery store is miles away, Young distributes the food for free or at very low cost.

Reclaiming the Ancient Tradition of Tree Wrapping by Jan Johnsen

Our modern insulated lifestyle with its technological advances has diminished our contact with the earth and we are now virtually cast adrift, isolated from the strength and resilience that trees can offer us. We spend such little time amongst these grand woody beings that we have lost – unknowingly – an important stabilizing and grounding anchor for our psyche. This changes once we remember to honor the energy that trees emanate. The Zen master, T. D. Suzuki, wrote in his book, Zen and Japanese Culture “Every old tree of any sort inspires a beholder with a mystic feeling which leads him to a faraway world of timeless eternity.”

Living Shamanically: An Introduction by Rebekah Shaman

| by Rebekah Shaman

Now I know what you are thinking? How is a woman born and raised in London, in one of the busiest, modern cities in the world, writing an article about living shamanically? And my answer is – it makes sense in a divinely paradoxical way that I would have to learn how to live in flow with nature, as it did not come naturally. I am a Londoner, and have lived here for most of my life. For years I hated it; the dirt, the pollution, the lack of space, the chaos, the impermanence, the concrete, the cars, the car parks, the hugeness of the city. For those who know London it can be a very isolating place, despite the growing population, twenty-four hour lifestyle, and myriad things on offer and to do. Despite this being my ‘natural habitat’ something about this way of life just felt wrong and unnatural….
