Static electricity created while wearing synthetic clothing stresses the body by intermittently short circuiting its electrical field (biofield). Linen is a natural anti-static fabric that is worn for clothing and used as bedding. Since the body is both hydroelectric and solar-electric, wearing clothing made of natural fibers aids in counteracting static electricity build-up. Similar in concept, anti-static wrist bands are worn by those working on sensitive electrical equipment to prevent short circuiting a device. Regarded by some cultures as the highest quality fabric, 100% linen has a broad scope of uses.
What is Linen?
Linen is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant, Linum usitatissimum L., which is a delicate and graceful annual that stands about 3 feet high and produces attractive blue flowers. Its Latin name means “most useful,” and for good reason. At the electronic cellular level, flax (linen) cells are highly complementary with human cells. Scientists have discovered that linen fibers reflect light and carry a high frequency signature. A healthy human body carries a high frequency resonance, with lower frequencies depicting states of disease.
History of Linen
Though technically a wildflower, flax has been cultivated for thousands of years for a wide variety of important uses. It was used by the ancient Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and Hebrews for food, clothing and medicine.The use of flax fiber in the manufacturing of cloth in northern Europe dates back to Neolithic times. In North America, flax was introduced by the Puritans, and today has become an essential commercial crop grown throughout the Midwest.
Historically, the priests of God (YHWH) in Israel were told to wear the beautiful white linen attire, found in Exodus 39:1-31. Currently, as His holy priesthood and royal nation (2 Peter 2:9), we are privileged to discover the benefits of linen fabric.
For an individual desiring to be well, a recommendation from the instructions of the Holy Scriptures is to wear linen.
“And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright; For fine linen is the righteousness of the saints” – Revelations 19:8
In Leviticus 19:19 it is forbidden to wear linen and wool together. This verse also mentions not to breed animals of different kinds, and not to mix different seeds. Scientifically, we know that breeding a male horse and a female donkey (different chromosomes) produces a sterile mule. Likewise, mixing different kinds of seeds often creates a hybrid plant with seeds that don’t reproduce.
Mixing linen and wool produces a fabric that is energetically incompatible, which is difficult to detect by those not trained in sensing energetic frequencies. Also, when observing the microscopic fibers of linen and wool they are very different. This is an incompatibility that would only have been known by the Creator when Leviticus was written (logically, not being visible to the eye). As you see in these pictures, linen has a smooth texture, while wool is much rougher. Linen absorbs and wicks water while wool sheds water, contrasting functional properties.
Scripture teaches principles for our guidance in all aspects of life. Walking by faith is the best approach to following all commands, with or without understanding the reasoning behind them. If you have any questions about Scripture, feel free to ask questions in the comment section, and I’ll respond to the best of my knowledge.
Benefits of Linen
Flax fabric is an excellent filter protecting against chemical exposure, noise and dust. Linen clothing reduces solar gamma radiation by almost half, thereby protecting us while wearing it. Flax fiber retrieved from contaminated soil appears to be totally resistant to harmful radiation. Resistant to fungus and bacteria, flax is found to be an effective barrier to some disorders. According to Japanese researchers, studies have shown that bed-ridden patients do not develop bedsores where linen bed sheets are used. Wearing linen clothes helps to decrease some skin disorders. Light is able to penetrate through linen, increasing the body’s energy production. See the post, “Water and Light Generates Energy,” for a scientific explanation.
Linen has the ability to rapidly absorb and give up moisture. Linen cloth can absorb as much as 20% of its dry weight. This explains why linen cloth always feels fresh and cool. It does not typically cause allergic reactions and is helpful in treating a number of allergic disorders. Linen is effective in dealing with inflammatory conditions, reducing fever, and providing a healthy air exchange. Also, some neurological ailments benefit from wearing linen clothing.
Silica present in the flax fiber helps protect linen against rotting. The long preserved mummies of Egyptian Pharaohs were wrapped in the finest of linen cloth.
As mentioned earlier, linen cloth does not accumulate static electricity – even a small addition of flax fibers (up to 10%) to a cloth is enough to eliminate static electricity. It possesses high air permeability. Heat conductivity of linen is five times as high as wool and 19 times that of silk. In hot weather those dressed in linen clothing are found to show skin temperatures 3-4 degrees C. below that of their silk or cotton-wearing friends. According to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes, and twice less than when dressed in viscose (rayon) clothes.
When a mattress with metal coils is covered with a linen sheet, static electricity generated through the conductive coils is dissipated. This is one of the reasons for better sleep during the night. If there are electrical devices close to a metal bed frame or mattress with metal coils, the creation of an electromagnetic field could be potentially hazardous to your health. A non-conductive mattress, like a cotton futon, is ideal for a better sleeping environment.
