Borderland: Dowsing and the Effects of Earth Radiation
_ Dowsing and the Effects of Earth Radiation
This article was compiled from the book Earthrays-The Silent
Killer? by Harold Triste, herbalist and herb grower.
Geopathogenic: a term derived from geo, the earth, and
pathogenic, to create illness, is the term used by science
for these radiation zones. Under this umbrella term, there
are various theories, for instance, magna rays, scatter
rays, Earth faults, curry nets, Earth magnetic fields,
cosmic energy shadows, etc. Best known is the water vein
Earth radiation causes a state of tension in the living
organism which results in short-term improvements of
performance but long-term exposure, particularly during
sleep, results in a debilitating geopathogenic influence.
Earth radiation disturbs and interferes with the normal
interaction between the hormonal and nervous system. The
interplay of glands, hormones and nerves may, depending on
the intensity of the radiation and the duration, lead to
mutation of body cells. In the case of trees, it leads to a
change in the structure of the wood.
Our body has a limited ability to deal with disturbances,
but it cannot cope with continuous tension or stimulation.
Much of our state of health is directly influenced by
radiation, as for instance, cramps, depression, insomnia,
bed-wetting, asthma, pains on the weak spots of the body
etc. More problematic, however, are the illnesses which
result in permanent damage, for instance cancer, where
considerable statistical evidence between the direct
correlation between geopathogenic radiation and cancer
Very similar to the moon, and very likely caused by it, is
the change in Earth radiation, and particularly in
intensity. One experiences the highest radiation during
periods of full moon, decreasing with a decreasing moon
phase. Whilst radiation lines sometimes disappear totally,
other new fields appear in different locations.
In Central Europe, certainly fluctuations are known, but
they are relatively small and appear periodically. Water
veins do change but only slightly or not at all in their
In Papua New Guinea, water vein radiation is similar to
Europe, subject to minimal fluctuation although a common
occurrence in the appearance and disappearance of huge water
veins. The cause of this is likely to be found in the high
local seismic activity.
Australia has a high incidence of continuous water veins.
Fluctuations in the intensity, however, are some of the most
extreme anywhere on the planet. The reason for these
extremes is the ancient nature of the continent and the
extreme climatic conditions. Long periods of drought are
followed by periods of flood, resulting in the shrinking and
re-activating of the subterranean watercourses.
The huge artesian basins are subject also to Earth
radiation, making it very difficult in those areas to find a
permanent, unradiated place of residence.
Plants cannot select their location nor can they avoid
detrimental environmental change. Similarly to the animals,
there are species which are not affected by Earth radiation
or even seem to benefit from it. Plants by their growth
habits and by their diseases, give much information about
subterranean Earth radiation. Trees, with cancerous growth
cannot escape the notice of even those least interested in
The growth patterns of trees exactly indicate to us the
alignment of water veins, even their direction. Radiation
forces the trees into growth patterns that are unnatural to
the species. Skillful dowsing depends on an ability to read
the clear signs of nature and interpret them correctly.
Every person has this sixth sense frequently demonstrated by
the behavior of children. When we become educated, this
intuitive sense is replaced by a logical, numerical type of
thinking. And so we come to the conclusion that when there
are no instruments to measure Earth rays, there are no Earth
The things we cannot prove don't exist. For radioactivity,
we have the geiger counter or an electricity voltmeter; for
the warning signals of Earth rays, only our subconscious.
For our own protection, we have to re-discover this ability
and perfect it. To find Earth radiation is simple,
inexpensive and has nothing to do with supernatural
abilities. Anybody with a wish to learn has succeeded,
which has led me to the conviction that everyone can find
these disturbing influences with the aid of the divining
The most used and traditional rod is the willow branch. My
father and my grandfather only used that type of rod. I
only learned 15 years ago about the steel rod and only began
to use the double-wire rod 5 years ago.
From my experience, beginners learn best with a double-wire
rod. Often the attempts with the willow rod prove to be
unsuccessful in the beginning, and once a wire rod is tried,
the learner is successful. A drawback of the wire rod is
that strong wind may affect the reading.
Willow rod and a pivoting steel rod should tilt slightly
upwards, the back of the hand pointing towards the earth.
When crossing the radiation lines, the rod turns powerfully
The double steel rod, on the other hand, is held very
loosely in the hands. With most support given by the little
finger, the thumb should not be crossing on the bend of the
wires. The hands should not touch but should be at least 10
centimeters apart. Rods should be held slightly lower and
when crossing veins, the rods will move upwards and cross.
Surely, all beginning is difficult and, as already
mentioned, you need to seek the advice of an experienced
dowser to check the readings. Both prepare a sketch for
Making a rod: The traditional willow rod was cut fresh from
the trees. Other types of wood may also be used. The ends
should be pliable and the rod not too heavy. The steel rod
may consist of one piece of wire, or of two pieces of
similar length, bent so that one leg is 8 centimeters long
and the other, at right angles to it, 30 to 60 centimeters
Different materials are suitable. I use coathangers,
sometimes plastic coated. Old rusted fine fencing wire may
be used. Some of the best dowsers I have come across had
the simplest of instruments.
Most animals react strongly to the presence of water veins
just as human beings do. The difference is that we dismiss
the sense in our concentration on rationality.
The organs of the pig, as well as its alimentary tract, are
similar to that of the human. Observation of domesticated
pigs shows a high degree of sensitivity to Earth radiation.
I observed the situation where 100 sows were put into a
special stable in preparation for the arrival of the
piglets. The mother pig would seek a position away from the
Earth radiation, the piglets would also move there are a
short warming-up under the heater. The rate of squashed
piglets for this particular box was much higher than for
any of the other boxes, whilst in the other boxes, the
piglets spent a good deal of time under the heater or around
the heater. The restless piglets in the box, subject to
Earth radiation, had a higher incidence of sickness and a
lower growth rate. Other influences, for instance draughts,
were not affecting this particular observation.
Hens are also very sensitive to Earth radiation. Hens are
kept to provide fresh, uncontaminated eggs. They should,
therefore, be kept in a location which is comfortable for
them. Often it can be found that hens avoid the quarters
that are provided and do not use the perches but rather
roost in other places. They spend the night on the floor in
a corner though a comfortable perch exists. In such cases,
the cause is undoubtedly the existence of Earth radiation.
There may be an explanation here for the use of cat skins in
many countries of the world for the alleviation of rheumatic
complaints. Are we perhaps here dealing with a type of
homeopathic effect? Why aren't warmer, softer furs of other
animals used for that purpose?
In my work with the complex issues of Earth radiation, I
find that many questions cannot be answered, and that any
answer raised further questions. Several claims made by
experienced dowsers have occupied me over many years. One of
them is: Do primitive people understand the connection
between Earth radiation, water veins and their negative
effects on health? Papua, New Guinea seemed to me to be the
best place to find answers to this question. The largest
part of Papua New Guinea is untouched by our civilization.
Houses and paths between the villages, as well as the
location of villages, in the country at least, are not
planned in some distant office but determined by the
instinctive decisions of the natives.
It happens now and again that the entire population of a
village, after having occupied the site for many
generations, will abandon it for no apparent reason. An
entire new village, sometimes only several kilometers away,
is built in the thick jungle. Why do these people make this
enormous effort of leaving and re-establishing a new
The history of the abandoned village, Garagassi-Gorendu, is
well documented by the Russian explorer Nicolai Miloucho-
Maclay. He lived for several years in Garagassi and visited
many neighboring villages.
About 100 years ago, many people died here of various
diseases. Some houses were more affected than others. The
possibility of an epidemic was discounted in this case,
because the tribe was in close contact with several other
tribes and none of those had a record of such diseases. We
checked the previously densely-populated site. A radiation
belt, wider than the old village, was found criss-crossed by
a series of smaller lines, and this appears to have been the
causes of the disaster.
Many other abandoned villages are known in Papua, New
Guinea, as well as in Fiji where I looked into this matter.
These villages have an enigmatic story in common, told by
the surviving elders. Suddenly people die of unexplained,
different diseases, some very young. Premature births and
infertility increase. The descriptions of the plight do not
fit the typical pattern of an epidemic or pest plague which
may have been a suspected reason for abandonment of the
villages. Pigs are said to suffer problems in these
situations; a further reason for the desertions, since pigs
are highly valued by the native as a kind of currency.
The reason for the disaster overtaking these unfortunate
villages seems to be the occurrence of Earth radiation
alone. Seismic activity, common in New Guinea, could
explain the sudden occurrence of the radiation in such
breadth and intensity. No surprise then that the natives
believed in curses by hostile tribes or revenging ancestor
Earth radiation assists, amplifies or triggers disease. Our
body, to a certain degree, compensated for negative effects
of Earth radiation, but it is only a matter of time before
the weakest part of our system will succumb. This process
is hastened by genetic disposition and other negative
The most detailed statistical evidence in regard to earth
radiation so far has been established for cancer. Over the
years I have observed many cases who, according to my
theory, should have enjoyed good health but were not. My
assumption was based on their natural diet, sufficient
exercise, emotional well-being and many were also living in
a rural, coastal, relatively unpolluted environment along
the East coast of Australia.
Medical investigations undertaken on my advice revealed
cancer. In some cases, previous owners of the houses also
Although I am aware of a series of other cancer-causing
factors in today's world, I have yet to find a cancer case
(skin cancer excepted) without long term Earth radiation
exposure in bed or at work.
Similar connections have been found for depression,
bronchitis, insomnia, bed wetting and rheumatism.
We know Earth radiation mainly by its devastating outcomes,
which logically increases our desire for solutions. Since
we do not yet possess measuring instruments to demonstrate
the radiation phenomenon and effects, we are depending on
the sensitivity and behavioral indicators of plants, animals
and man. This situation, understandably, creates a climate
for misuse by charlatans. It is therefore particularly
important that as many people as possible develop dowsing
skills and experience.
