The practical value of perceiving our geomagnetic field is demonstrated by successful dowsers. Dowsing accesses a subtle feeling that might correspond with small variations of the ambient geomagnetic field. This is a good example of how a subconscious perception of a certain kind of feeling, related to the geomagnetic field, can be employed for survival, to find drinking water. There are people with an exceptional ability to find water, and this skill has been called dowsing.
To find the way home is also an obvious survival skill, and we can imagine how important this latent ability was for our ancestors who, long ago, lived by wandering in the wilderness hunting and foraging. Many animals can navigate very well via perceptions of the geomagnetic field, especially when combined with orientation to the sun and light.
From my experience with places of power, I have found that any location a distinct and unique “signature” corresponding to a feeling. Our word “home” has a very specific feeling to it, which for most people is unconscious, yet very important. You feel “at home” when you are in your home zone, or location. This feeling of home is a memory and it can be compared to other locations and the difference noted. I suspect that some people and certain animals memorize internal maps based on this feelings, and can navigate by them.
