Interest in organic foods and organic gardening has been increasing year after year. It has finally reached the critical mass where it has become so mainstream that even Wal Mart is starting to carry organic products.

Organic farming and gardening needs to continue to evolve to meet the increasing demand for organic products. One of the ongoing challenges is pest control. Research done by the New Horizon Trust, a radionic research and training organization, has lead to some fascinating advances in pest control.

Before we get into details about the techniques, I need to go into a little more background. Until recently, our western civilization believed in a strict Newtonian separation between our inner experience and the world around us.

Two recent movies you may have seen, “The Secret” and “What the Bleep Do We Know?” have made it quite clear that the observer and the observed are inseparably intertwined. This truth is one of the more amazing discoveries to come out of research into quantum physics.

Of course, it is sometimes difficult for us to grasp how interconnected we are with the universe because we are not well equipped for this experience. This is one of the reasons that a science called radionics came into being. Radionics lets us communicate with the universe through the subtle energy fields that connect us all. You can find good information about radionics at http://www.wikipedia.com.

Radionics instruments consist of a device for tuning into the appropriate subtle field channel, an interface for tactile communication and an interface where you place a picture (or other representation) of what you’d like to communicate with.

There are a number of different radionics-type devices. One of the most advanced, the SE-5 Plus, does the tuning with a small portable computer. The tactile interface, called a “stick plate,” sits next to the computer. The stick plate is so-named because the plate becomes stickier when you rub it if the reading is positive. Also near the computer is a slot for a picture or sample.

Now back to the example about pest control with radionics. There is a huge amount of research about using radionics for gardening and farming, but the following example will give you a taste of what is possible.

You place a sample of the crop or field soil into the provided slot. The computer can connect with the “portion of the universe” this sample represents. Next, you write your request and enter it into the computer. For example, it could look something like this: “ALL CORN BORERS LEAVE THIS FIELD NOW SO THIS CROP CAN FLOURISH.” Then you follow a short procedure and set the program running for a set time.

Using this and similar techniques, it is possible to farm organically and produce high yield, nutritious crops with excellent storage characteristics. In a nutshell, that’s all there is to it. Note that this method is quick, easy, costs nothing and is totally organic, as there is no need for chemicals or pesticides.
