“The Story of Eloptic Energy” The Autobiography of Dr. T. Galen Hieronymus

When I think of the founders of Radionics, four names immediately come to mind. Dr. Albert Abrams, Dr. Ruth Drown, George DeLaWarr, and last but not least Dr. Galen T. Hieronymus.

Dr. Hieronymus wrote an autobiography, which not only gives an account of his life, but also offers much useful information on radionics. Below is the complete “Story of Eloptic Energy”in PDF. format that you can open with a program such as Adobe Acrobat available here.

Radionics and Radiesthesia

What is “Radiesthesia”, is it a part of radionics, or is it totally separated from radionics. ¬†Radiesthesia is another word for dowsing or divining. Here is a definition from Merriam-Webster ” sensitiveness held to enable a person with the aid of divining rod or pendulum to detect things (such as the presence of underground water, the nature of an illness, or the guilt of a suspected person)”.

According to the above definition¬†Radiesthesia is a large part of radionics, when using radionics we can dowse for rates as in cold-scanning, we can dowse for Yes or No answers, we can dowse for the right reagents to use, etc. Using the same “powers”that a dowser with a forked stick uses to find water many feet below ground, we use a radionic instrument to find out if the subject in question has any illness in their body, or if a plant might require more calcium, and so on.

Even though there are similarities between dowsing with a pendulum or water-stick and a radionic instrument, there is also an important difference.¬†Although Radiesthesia is used in radionic work, the use of pure radiesthesia without the “buffer”of the radionic instrument between the operator and the subject can result in problems for the operator. . There is the belief that “psychic healers” who do not use any kind of radionic instrument, often suffer from a kind of “backlash”from what they are trying to do, it drains them, and leaves them open to the same conditions and illnesses they are trying to balance in the subject. Some radionic practitioners use a piece of paper with the subject’s name on it, this is what is referred to as a “surrogate witness” and/or a “symbolic radionic machine“, these should not be used for the same reasons as mentioned above, they don’t remove the operator far enough away from the subject mentally, as does a true radionic instrument.. It is also a radionic instrument be “Grounded“for the same reasons.
