Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are all around us and you probably don’t even realize it. It’s a sign of how our society has evolved, and thrived, into becoming one driven by technology. To become technologically advanced isn’t exactly a bad thing. But when technology is impacting our health, it becomes an issue; and most people have no clue the influence their “smart” devices are having on them.
EMFs are a bit of an abstract concept. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences defines EMFs as “invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting.” So yes, EMFs, in one form or another, have existed since the dawn of time (sunlight). But not necessarily in the same man-made, potentially concentrated, form that we now utilize.
The non-ionizing, low-level radiation that has generally been perceived to be harmless to humans (think microwaves, cell phones, bluetooth, powerlines, and wifi, among other things), is now thought to be something worth considering as it relates to optimizing your wellbeing. Even scientists can concede that more research is needed into the issue in relation to our present climate. According to the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), EMFs are “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” If you read the IARC’s press release above, you’ll find that this is based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use. Scary.
What is even worse than the lack of information regarding the safety of our existing levels of radiation exposure is the complete unknown in what has been called 5G technology. 5G is causing concern across the globe and is even being banned in some areas, especially in proximity to schools, for the complete lack of research done in regards to its short and long-term safety. There is not one research study that has been conducted on the effects of 5G technology, yet the race to be one of the first to launch this technology is being prioritized over the health and wellbeing of human life. Essentially the rollout is the experiment!
The reason so many are alarmed by this is there are already 100s of research studies done on the harmful effects of EMFs and radio frequency radiation (RFRs). You can find over 1,600 peer reviewed scientific papers here. In addition to our current 4G technology, 5G will overlay a completely new technology that will broadcast millimeter waves in addition to the microwaves that are already being broadcasted. These millimeter waves are able to be absorbed by the skin and eyes unlike 4G. So in essence, our level of exposure is going to skyrocket! According to Scientific American, we have no reason to believe that 5G is safe.
The result of EMF exposure can have a variety of health effects including cancer, fertility issues, DNA damage, cellular damage, organ and bone marrow damage these other symptoms that are so, so common:
Yes, the list is broad and all-encompassing. Think about it though - we are constantly saturated with radiation. How do you know that your inability to sleep aren’tbeing caused by sleeping with your cell phone on your headboard? Anything outside of the norm for your body is a sign that something is wrong. If you are treating your body for the wrong things then the issue will never go away. Until you get to the root cause, the issue will just become buried. If you ignore an ailment long enough, eventually it will manifest itself in another manner that could potentially be even more serious.
To put it simply, we just don’t know enough about the lasting effects that EMFs and 5G will have on our mind and body. So why shouldn’t we do everything we can to try and minimize our risk and exposure?
Because crystals are amazing at absorbing, storing and transmitting energy, they can be wonderful tools for protecting us against harmful EMFs. They create grids of subtle energy that form a shield of protection for our human biofield. They also help to balance and harmonize our energy field or aura, strengthening our physical health, immunity, vitality and wellbeing.
Generally speaking, any crystal that is supportive to grounding the energy field will also be supportive with EMF protection. Also, crystals containing iron are especially good as iron neutralizes electromagnetic frequencies.
Shungite holds a unique protective quality unlike other crystals. It is powerful at cleansing and aligning the energetic body. It contains fullerenes which are complex, intertwined molecules that due to their unique structure, attract and neutralize various unnatural elements that attack and cause harm to our bodies. Shungite filters out EMFs, viruses, bacteria, radioactive particles, and so many toxins.
Black tourmaline contains iron which is known to absorb and neutralize EMFs. It is also a wonderful stone at absorbing negative energy offering protection to our human biofield. Because black tourmaline is so absorbant, it is important to cleanse it regularly especially when it has been exposed to a lot of negative or toxic energy.
Pyrite is a ferromagnetic stone, which means it contains iron and iron is able to absorb radiation. Pyrite is a grounding and energizing stone and it also offers a great deal of protection against EMFs, toxins, pollutants and even infection. Note, this is not a stone that you want to place near your computer because the magnetic nature of pyrite can damage your hard drive.
Snowflake obsidian is a wonderfully protective and purifing stone that clears negative energy from our body and the environment, protecting us from EMFs and toxic energy. Knows as a stone of purity, it works on all levels to cleanse the body, mind and spirit of any toxicity.
Tourmalinated quartz features lineations of black tourmaline in clear quartz. Black tourmaline contains iron which has the ability to absorb and neutralize radiation. Encapsulated in clear quartz, the energies are amplified, thereby strengthening the protective qualities of black tourmaline. Quartz is also a powerhouse for storing your intentions. Consider storing the intention of EMF protection into the stone, further empowering it to work for you! Don’t forget to also thank the stone for its service.
