In this present day, size is quite often looked upon as an indication of wealth and stature and there is no real reason to support the choice of something large as opposed to a thing of more modest dimensions. Was that also the case in ancient times when megalithic structures were being built?
We are often amazed when we visit some of these ancient places to see the huge size of some of the stones that have been used in their construction. Avebury, Stonehenge, The Devils Arrows and Callanish are only a few examples throughout Britain where the stones are both very tall and of great weight. Was this only to impress the neighbours or was there a valid reason to do so?
Those of you who have read some of the articles that I have written and in particular the little booklet called “Megalithic Structures: Why?” will know my view that the stones in ancient megalithic structures are positioned in strict relationship with the intersection points of edge lines or centrelines of major underground flows of water. Where the water in the underground flow is fed by a blind spring detrimental energy will rise from the edge lines. Where the water in the underground flow is fed by a downshaft detrimental energy will rise from the centreline. When a stone is correctly positioned over these intersection points any detrimental energy that would normally rise from the earth, at or near to the structure, will be earthed, resulting in a more friendly energy environment for ourselves and others.
Over one year ago I placed a single standing stone at such a location on my property. The stone was about 4 feet long and 2ft 6ins across. After it was placed my dowsing indicated that detrimental energy from the earth was no longer rising from the ground for a distance of a 5-mile radius around the stone. I found that this distance varied according to the lengthening or shortening of daylight hours. As the day lengthened the area affected increased and as it shortened the area decreased. That continues to be the case.
At any intersection point of edge lines or centrelines of underground water the detrimental energy will rise in the shape of a vortex. The base of the vortex is at about the level of the surface of the ground. The width of the base and the height of the vortex will vary depending on local conditions. Directly on top of the vortex is an inverted vortex and on top of that another with the base down. This can be repeated several times. (See Diagram 1). However, I found that at certain times this vortex shape altered considerably and on occasions changed to being cylindrical in form. The diameter of the cylindrical shape also changed from time to time. When I monitored this over a period of time I found that the changes in shape and size corresponded with solar and lunar phases. The vortex shape was maintained during the first and last quarters of the moon and was altered at the time of the full and new moon. These changes became more noticeable as the day shortened. The length of time over which these changes occurred became greater and the increase in diameter larger.
Over the same period I monitored the ability of the standing stone to successfully earth the detrimental energy. I found that when the changes that were taking place, in the form of the energy in the vortices, increased to a certain point then the stone was not effective. Careful observation revealed that these periods of ineffectiveness were when the vortex changed into a cylinder and that the diameter of the cylinder became greater than the breadth of the stone. The stone then sat inside the ring of rising energy without making contact with it. At about 12 feet above the surface of the ground the line of energy forming the cylinder loops across the centre space before continuing on upward. (See Diagram 2).
To avoid these lapses and ensure that the stone remains effective for the majority of the time, at this location it would require erected a stone about 7 feet across or over 12 feet high. This would ensure that the ascending energy line, in whatever form it takes, would make contact with the stone and be earthed by it. (See Diagram 3).
Therefore, it would appear that in the case of megalithic structures big is not only beautiful but also necessary in many cases. Size does matter. The depth and volume of flow in the underground water at the structures would appear to be the criterion that determines the maximum size that the cylinders of energy grow to.
My conclusion is that the deeper the water and greater the volume the larger the stones that would be required to be effective in suppressing detrimental energy for the maximum amount of the time.
