Feng Shui Q & A : Living Near Power Lines

Jan 17, 2013 | Feng Shui 101


I  am asked quite a lot about the safety of power lines overhead.  If you happen to have ever lived near high voltage power lines (and yes, you can almost hear them buzz) you, too, might have the same questions.

High voltage power lines emit EMF pollution.  EMF? Electromagnetic fields.  Why does this matter?

EMF pollution has been linked to:  leukemia and brain damage in children, depression, lethargy, autoimmune disorders, anxiety and even cancer in adults.  Of course, if you ask a scientist they will say “nothing conclusive” has been found that proves that any of this is true.

Well, I once had a bedroom up high in a building about 30 feet from a power line “pole”.  The giant evergreen trees beside my room were automatically growing away from the power line pole, growing diagonally rather than vertically.  I always had hives or bouts of insomnia, for no explainable reason.

Verdict: EMF pollution is very real to me. I just found an awesome, giant, nearly ideal place today but I can’t live there because of the power lines. ( see above)

So, what do you do if you DO live near power lines?

Here’s what I did!  It served its purpose for a while, though if given the choice I have now I’d never do it again….

1. A wall of plants. My bedroom balcony was fully loaded with an entire container garden & inside the room was a wall of plants for extra protection.

2. EMF blockers.  I plug one into my wall socket and I also have another one that I put in a room on a wall pointing toward the offending EMF source.  You can find some HERE.

3. Mirrors on the wall with the power cords behind it.

4. Unplug all electronics when you are not using them.

And I was OK, sort of, but I truly was OK when I moved out of there.  Be aware of how things like EMF’s might affect your nervous system & immune system and you will be glad that you did…or, at least, I was!

    I have spent so much of my limited income on this place. My sanctuary. IN come’s excell and put’s the huge tall 8 something line polls on my property. I have one hundred acres in a poor area. Well I put so much into this place it did not come easy and the power lines are approx. 2 300 ft from my home.

    I am so disapointed as the view alone will kill me. Thanks for this information you put out. I wonder if I should sell, move, but I have my two horses I buried out back. I am low income. Where do I go. They put it in the middle of my land.

      you need power, right? i mean, its not all bad. I think with all that land aruond you you should have plenty of space to get distance from these lines… and in your home, do the simple things like plants, less electronics… etc ;- )

    Hello Dana,
    What does cables mean in Feng Shui? I just realized that I have in my relationship gua all sorts of cables. Yikes! No wonder all of my relationships are horrible right now. What can I do? Unfortunately, I cannot move the tv or computer out from the bedroom.

    Thank you!
