5 Energy Thieves and How to Avoid Them

  • 2 of 3

Thief #3: Blocker Fabrics

As you might expect, clothing also has an effect on our energy health. We generally feel better when wearing natural fabrics, but did you know that they are conducive to energy flow, while synthetics block energy flow?

Dr. Greene explains. “If the energy body is covered with energy-blocking clothing, it cannot breathe, so to speak. This taxes it and can lead to a devitalized state. In general, natural fibers allow energy to flow. Fabrics that are plant and animal derived allow energy to travel through them without blocking it because, like humans, living plants and animals are energy based (they also have an energy body).”

To avoid this:

Stay away from chemically derived synthetics like nylon, microfibers, polyester, acrylic, spandex, acetate, olefin, and modacrylic. Also be on the lookout for the ever increasing list of trademarked fabrics that are made up of man-made synthetics.

Cotton, wool, hemp, cashmere, ramie, silk, linen, rayon/modal, and bamboo allow energy flow. As Dr. Greene puts it, “You canít trademark mother nature!”

Thief #4: Unnatural Light

So many of us spend our days under artificial light sources, but the sun produces a nutrient-rich energy that simply cannot be replicated. To maintain energy health, says Dr. Greene, we need natural sunlight. “Winter depression, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and the lack of vitamin D evident in people who do not get enough natural sunlight are just the tip of the iceberg.†Natural sunlight contains all the colors of the spectrum in uniform frequency patterns.†Artificial light is substandard and often lacking in many of the essential nutrients of the sun. Fluorescent light contains drastically inconsistent frequencies such as large energy peaks in the yellow, green and violet ranges; it also emits more electromagnetic radiation than incandescent light.”

To avoid this:

Ten minutes of afternoon sun on your skin every day should do it. The incandescent light bulb comes closest to replicating the balanced frequency spectrum of natural sunlight.

“Do your best to avoid fluorescent lighting, including compact fluorescent bulbs, which not only are bad for energy health (they emit dirty electricity) but are also bad for the environment (they contain toxic mercury).”

Humm, not really a big fan of cell phones some people are addicted they do come in handy for emergencies thanks for the info.

Since we're over 30 miles from the end of phone lines, we depend on having a cell phone in case of emergency. Spring water isn't a choice in the desert where we live. Our home is lit during the day with lots of windows, and in the evening with candles and one small energy-efficient solar-powered light bulb. We don't wear synthetic clothing, and we eat local and organic. We're doing pretty well, it seems.

thanks, but fresh spring water isn't always an option.

Actually living in the northern parts of the USA means ten minutes a day is not sufficient for vitamin D production.

Interesting, thanks.
