DIRECTIONS FOR USING THE RADIAL APPLIANCE
ABOUT THE APPLIANCE
According to the Cayce readings, the Radial Appliance
is not a battery. It works by balancing the body's natural energies,
and generates no current itself. Although it was originally called
the "Radio-Active" Appliance, it contains no radioactivity. It is
constructed of steel, glass, carbon and charcoal in a brass container.
It contains no chemicals or toxic materials. It should last for
many years, but if you should ever need to dispose of it, no special arrangements
These are the directions for using your Radial Appliance
at home. They describe how to chill the Radial Appliance to activate
it, how to attach it to your body, and how to store it. In most
instances, the supplier of your appliance will provide such instructions
with the appliance. Thus, the directions which follow are simple
supplementary materials to aid you in its use.
The appliance seems to work best if used for at least
4 days a week. It can be used every day. After each month
of use, the readings recommend that you take a break from it for about
a week. The attachments for the appliance are rotated in a 4-day
pattern (described below). This doesn't require that you use the
appliance 4 days in a row; simply pick up the next day in the sequence
whenever you use the appliance next.
ACTIVATING THE APPLIANCE
The Appliance should be placed in the plastic tub
and surrounded with cracked ice (ice cubes are fine) to the top of the
tub. Add water until it reaches a level of about 2" from the top
of the Appliance. Do not allow the water to come over the top of
the Appliance. Let it stand in this manner for 20 minutes before
attaching to the body, leaving it in the ice water during the time it
is attached to the body.
CLEANING THE ELECTRODES
While the Appliance is cooling, use the emery paper
(sandpaper) to clean the electrode surface that will touch your body.
You must also sand the electrodes after you use the Appliance.
When the Appliance is ready for use, insert the tips
of the wires in the holes on top of the Appliance (Red to Red and Black
to Black). DO NOT LET THE METAL DISCS (ELECTRODES) TOUCH EACH OTHER
AFTER THE WIRES HAVE BEEN FASTENED TO THE APPLIANCE!
ATTACHING THE APPLIANCE TO YOUR BODY
Always attach the Red wire to your body first. The general pattern
is as follows:
- lst day: The plate coming from the red pole would be attached
FIRST, to the RIGHT WRIST; while the other plate coming from the black
pole would be attached LAST, to the LEFT ANKLE.
- 2nd day: FIRST attachment (from the red pole) would be to
the LEFT WRIST; LAST attachment (from the black pole) to the RIGHT
- 3rd day: Attach FIRST to the LEFT ANKLE; LAST to the RIGHT
- 4th day: FIRST to the RIGHT ANKLE, LAST to the LEFT WRIST.
Thus a circle of the body will have been made in the
attachments. The first attachment becomes the positive, the last
the negative. Thus always be sure to attach FIRST the plate coming
from the RED pole, LAST the one coming from the BLACK pole.
The electrodes are attached to the inside of the wrist,
as near the pulse as possible, and to the inside of the ankle in the hollow
just between the ankle joint and the tendon which runs down the back of
the leg to the heel. Adjust the bands so that the discs are held
securely in place against the skin.
Remain attached to the Appliance for about an hour
each session. It is OK to use it a little longer. It is preferable
to remain quiet, in a prayerful, meditative and constructive attitude
during the hour the Appliance is attached; while resting, or just before
retiring at night. Choose a relaxing setting such as a bedroom or
meditation area. A recliner chair that adjusts to a horizontal position
can be very relaxing. Place the container and appliance on the floor
next to the bed or recliner.
Many people prefer to play some relaxing music during
the session. A 60 minute cassette tape or CD also helps to define
the length of the session. When the music stops, the session is
over. Many music stores now contain one or more sections featuring
music for meditation, relaxation (stress reduction), "night music" and
so forth. After the session, remove the Appliance from the ice water
and dispose of the ice water.
STORING THE APPLIANCE
When not using the Appliance, disconnect the wires
and store the Appliance on a wooden shelf or table, NEVER ON METAL or
near an electrical appliance such as a TV set. If convenient place
the unit in the sun for 20 to 30 minutes occasionally. DO NOT attempt
to attach the Appliance or electrodes to any source of electrical current
- this will damage the subtle energies of the Appliance.
Before and after each attachment, be sure the electrodes
are cleaned or polished with the emery cloth (sandpaper) which is provided.
Special care should be taken not to let them become corroded by the acids
and oils from the body. Store the electrodes in their separate plastic
bags when not in use.
Edgar Cayce insisted that anything that can be helpful
or healing can also be detrimental if misused. Remember that the
Radial Appliance merely utilizes the body's own energy - physically, mentally
and spiritually. If there is negativity in the system, the Appliance
will only redistribute the negative effects throughout the whole body.
Keep a positive, constructive attitude while using the Appliance.
Edgar Cayce frequently recommended that the person
using the appliance meditate during the session. Using positive
affirmations and visualization is helpful. If you are in a negative
frame of mind and can't consciously transition to a more positive consciousness,
look for reading material or other resources that you find inspiring and
uplifting. Cayce often suggested certain inspirational passages
from the Bible, particularly the 30th chapter of Deuteronomy and the 14th,
15th, 16th and 17th chapters of John.
ALCOHOL AND APPLIANCE USE
The readings cautioned against using any form of electrotherapy
while alcohol is in the system. So if you drink, don't drive; and
don't use the appliance either.
ONE APPLIANCE PER PERSON
Because the Radial Appliance uses the body's own energies,
it is a personal device. Individuals should each have their own
appliance. The Cayce readings emphasize that the Appliance should
NOT BE SHARED with anyone else.
