eBook (PDF): $8.99
Flooring material, and the structures we live in will block out beneficial energies and can also serve to store large amounts of negative energy. These damaging force fields include cell towers,... More > electrical currents and GPS systems in our cars. They play havoc with our health by harming us in many unseen ways. There are useful and practical ways to change the 'sha-chi' or negative energy. The two main elements for remediation are the use of magnetite rock and obsidian pyramids. Red Oxide flooring is made of Iron Oxide which is part of the magnetite dust. Red Oxide flooring is a favourite among Low-budget Home Builders, as they give a smooth shiny polished floor for a much lesser price compared to other alternatives. The Red/ Black Oxide powder is mixed with white cement and applied to the floor. Elder Masons in India for polish used coconut oil smeared and rubbed with a husk and some used egg shells. This book explains in detail how to do this simple Do-it-yourself low budget flooring project in America.< Less
