5 Energy Thieves and How to Avoid Them

Thief #5: Cell Phones

Far too many people allow cell phones to hijack their time and attention. Cell phones can also deplete the system through the electromagnetic radiation they emit. Cell phones, along with all wireless devices, advises Dr. Greene, expose you to low-level radiation through the electricity that runs them, plus high-level radio frequency radiation from the carrier signals. Electronic devices cause artificial stimulation that interrupts sleep cycles and natural body rhythms in some people. Wireless signals have also been shown to affect brain cell activity.

To avoid this:

Don’t carry your cell phone on your body and limit its use. Use a hollow-tube headset (the hollow tube interrupts the radiation flow). Make it a practice to forward your cell phone to a land line with a cord (cordless phones are even worse than cell phones in terms of radiation). Text when possible. Don’t use your cell phone in the car (the metal from the car traps the signals inside the car).

With so many thieves attempting to rob our energy body, we would be wise to pay attention. Life is energy and energy is life.

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.
