Do you want your business to have decreased rates of absenteeism and increased productivity? Businesses thrive if you have a happy and cohesive team, yet there are times when organisations seem to do everything right – investing in their people, building a supportive and positive team, fostering a progressive and helpful office culture, but there is still a problem. If this is the case for your business, have you considered that it could be your place of work – the building itself, which is having a negative impact on some of your team members?
Could it be that sensitive staff is affected by Geophatic stress (not necessarily always being always the direct cause)? Geopathic Stress affects our immune system, nervous system, and our concentration level and/or increases the sensitivity to stress with a potential high absenteeism and sickness in the workforce. The end result of this can lead to high rates of business staff turnover too.
Geopathic Stress is the relationship between the earth’s energies and your wellbeing. You may have read about Geopathic Stress before in my blog, from contributor Andre Sutherland or in a previous post about the home.
Geopathic stress is a phenomenon that affects different places throughout the world. It can be harmful to human health as well as animals. There are different and/or combinations of causes such as natural radiation and toxic ley lines, underground water and changes to the earth magnetic fields and more.
Emotional outbursts that flood our homes and workplaces can also affect negatively the workforce too.
Sadly, one of the major causes of Geopathic stress goes hand and hand with modern-day life; this is the electromagnetic radiation from mobile and cordless phones, WiFi, baby alarms and microwave ovens, etc. See my post about EMF (electromagnetic frequencies) to find out more about this here.
According to a WHO (world health organisation) expert group, in the mid-1980s up to 30% of new or remodelled buildings had unusually high rates of complaints. Read more here.
Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) describes a medical condition where multiple people in a building suffer from symptoms of illness or feel unwell for no apparent reason.
With such high rates of SBS, many of us are likely to know someone who is struggling with a building’s energy or know of individuals that have an illness that perhaps cannot be attributed to anything else.
As this true for homes, it must be the same for offices, schools and other places of work. Issues of Geopathic Stress do not discriminate based on what the function of a building is, and therefore in theory even hospitals may have issues with energy.
If you have a bad feeling at work, or perhaps others do, or even if there is a particular room or area of the building that you identify as being problematic, consider giving the building “treatment” from myself.
