The Basic Grid system is the underlying structure of the human body's energy system. It resembles the foundation walls of a home. The wooden structure is erected and then the cement is poured into the wooden 'trough'. The energy flows through the grid slowly like the cement into the trough. If the wooden structure erected to mold and shape the intended cement wall has a crack or break or is not properly attached, the cement will flow out of the structure. The energy of the Basic Grid is similar. A traumatic event or severe stress or illness can cause the Basic Grid to be damaged in such a way that the energy cannot travel the prescribed path and the person will never be able to properly heal fully.
