I did see on CASPN's website about spiritual threat http://www.cornishancientsites.com/spiritualthreat.htm with regards to items such as crystals (as well as other items) being buried at stone circle sites, away from Cornwall I did come across a blog by a person who had visited the Doll Tor circle in Derbyshire (unable to find this link now) they stated that part of the circle was damaged and that they had left crystals in the area to "re balance" the area.John Moss wrote:Dear Geoff,
When I read your entry dated 2 November my heart sank. I wish I had kept a count during my 9 years as Director of BSD of how many times someone – usually for some curious reason, anonymously – announced from somewhere – usually from outside the UK, that our energy/ley/stone rings were at crisis point and required urgent attention. Sometimes the action should be taken by a chosen few, other times anyone with no experience at all could join in.
So now here we go again. It clearly does not occur to these prophets of doom that our special places are constantly being cared for by skilled people throughout the UK. I now live in West Cornwall and am a trustee of the Cornish Ancient Sites Protection Network ( CASPN), which for over 15 years has been actively caring for the physical welfare of many of the sites in West Penwith. In addition the area is heavily populated with skilled energy workers who constantly monitor the spiritual welfare of the sites. These people are often rooted to the land by history, heritage and family.
I’m sure you can understand how hackles rise when someone of unknown ability encourages other people with little or no connection to the sites to start meddling.
Past President Grahame Gardner wrote a very thought provoking article a little while ago. I suggest you and others who would like to be involved in this work have a look at this link:
Incidentally, Malcolm, Mên-an-Tol has not been ‘trashed’. Certainly it was once a stone ring which has been reconfigured. Its history and the legends connected with it are easily found on the internet. To a dowser of even basic experience, the energetic signature is quite clear, as are the original location of the recumbent and missing stones.
Best wishes John Moss
I've haven't been up to this area since last year so will have a look what is going on next time I'm up at Nine Ladies (Stanton Moor)/ Arbor low. Mentioning Nine Ladies, last year when I was there one woman decided that the most northern stone made a rather nice seat to sit on whilst eating her lunch! One thing I do get annoyed with is Cloutie trees and there is one right next to the Nine Ladies! I wonder if the people who insist festooning their rubbish on a living entity!
