Is there, flowing across the landscape of our world, a single planetary energy system, long forgotten to modern humanity?

 

And here and there along the energy pathways, did a prehistoric global civilization once tap into its power by building vast transmission and receiving stations, using various forms of monumental architecture?

Have today's historians been so out of touch with the obvious inter-connections of all of these remains that they have tried to explain the silent sentinel ruins as nothing more than primitive construction projects having little meaning or purpose beyond localized superstitious needs?

Were such mysterious sites as Stonehenge in England, or Machu Picchu in Peru, or the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon near Mexico City, or the megalith temples of Malta, or the stone heads of Easter Island, or Serpent Mound in Ohio, or thousands upon thousands of other structures scattered across the globe, simply a matter of chance arrangement or design?

 

Have the modern theories, whatever they may be, fallen far short of explaining what really once was?

Is it true that these great monumental edifices were deliberately fixed into the geometric configuration of an "enchanted" energy landscape? And did they, altogether, create a gigantic intricate web-like pattern, the meaning and purpose of which has defied the most scholarly of modern archaeologists and historians to fully explain? What is the missing element that interlinks everything into a single fabric and weave, of which the prehistoric linear patterns among the silent structures are but the threads?

Is there a universal energy source, once known but lost to us today, which springs from the Earth? Was it distributed along the sacred lines and pathways, and broadcast out of the temples situated at the focal points? Is this is the mythic hidden power of magic and healing at one time shared by everyone, in a forgotten Golden Age in the distant past? How was such a system lost, and can it be understood and restored again today?

Several modern leading researchers in the fields of ancient mysteries and earth energies have gleaned from ancient sources what may be new answers to these questions regarding the true nature of the planet and its power systems, as well as how these have affected not only climatic and geologic changes in the Earth, but also significant physical-emotional-mental-spiritual transformations among peoples and nations.

What is also being realized is that ongoing shifts and alterations in personal and planetary energy fields have subtle yet profound influences on world events.

 

Only as we can learn more concerning earth energies - how they were once used, and can be rediscovered again today - will we find an important key to the potential directions of the future ahead of us.
 

 

 


MEMORIES OF A BROKEN WEB OF POWER


Among ancient and modern indigenous peoples the world over are very similar traditions of earth energy patterns and how they were once utilized.

 

In England, alignments among standing stones and stone circles are called leys, along which flowed the life force that fertilized the landscape. In Ireland they are remembered as fairy paths and in Germany as holy lines.

 

The Greeks knew them as the Sacred Roads of Hermes, while the ancient Egyptians regarded them as the Pathways of Min.

The Chinese today still measure the Lung Mei or dragon currents which affect the balance of the land, as practiced through the ancient art of Feng-shui. Much in the same fashion as the application of acupuncture needles in Chinese medicine helps the flow of Chi or life force in the human body, so the placement of pagodas, stones, trees, temples and houses in the environment was regarded as a way to heal the Earth.

Likewise, the Native Australians still go on walkabouts or pilgrimages down their dream paths, crisscrossing the desert in an effort to seasonally reenergize the life centers of the region. They work with boards called Turingas which map out the dream-lines, and by meditating on them are able to predict the approach of storms, and the location of game animals as they interact with the line systems.

The old Polynesians spoke of using the te lapa or lines of light flowing in the ocean as a method of navigation. The stone heads of Easter Island and the sacred Ahu platforms of Hawaii were so positioned as to receive their mane or life power along aka threads from over the watery horizons.

When the Spanish conquistadors entered Peru in the sixteenth century, they found the entire Inca Empire organized around wacas or sacred centers situated along ceque lines which all converged at the Coricancha or Temple of the Sun in ancient Cuzco. Similarly, the Mayas of the Yucatan interconnected their pyramid-sanctuaries by means of Sacbes or raised white roadways that were built in dead-straight segments through the jungle swamps.

In Western North America, medicine wheels and kiva circles are often found in linear arrangements, and in the Midwest and East coastal regions the Mound Builders left many of their great earthen works in alignments covering large areas.

 

In New England mysterious stone chamber sites also fit into linear patterns, and many Native American shamans today speak of energies called Orenda, Manitou and by other names which flow through the Earth to promote healing.

Not only were local terrestrial powers tapped into around the world, but many ancient and modern traditions recognize that these local patterns were part of a much larger energy configuration called the Earth's Crystal Grid.
 

 

 


SPOTTED FAWNS, VIBRATING BALLOONS AND SPLITTING CONTINENTS


The Elders of the Native American Hopi nation say that the Earth's surface is like the back of a spotted fawn.

 

As the fawn grows, the spots move and change number. Similarly, every time the Earth Mother sings a new song or enters a new vibrational shift, Her power centers also change to a new configuration, interconnected by a more complex sacred geometry.

In the 1970s several students of inventor Buckminster Fuller performed a series of experiments that were later repeated by other researchers and taken to new levels. The experiments involved submerging a balloon in a liquid medium filled with blue dye, and subjecting the balloon and liquid to a certain frequency of vibration.

 

The result was the dye collected at specific points on the surface of the balloon, and thin lines formed joining the points in geometric arrangements. When the frequency was turned higher the original dye points first quickly dissolved and then a greater number of dye points began to slowly form, joined by lines in a more complex configuration.

It is now believed that the Earth also has its own energy centers, much like the human body has chakras and acupuncture points. Like the growing fawn or the balloon subjected to a higher frequency, when the Earth periodically moves into a higher energy state, so the overall planetary energy patterns shift into new crystal-like forms. This is a global phenomenon which appears to have been going on for a very long period of time.

A study of map projections and world-wide geological patterns conducted in 1976 by Athelstan Spilhaus, consultant for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOM), revealed that when the super-continent Pangaea first broke apart approximately 220 million years ago forming the rudiments of our modern-day continental masses, the breakup occurred along equidistant lines forming the edges and points of a tetrahedron.

 

This is a geometric shape composed of four equilateral triangles, the First and simplest of the Sacred Solids of Plato.

Based on the research of Hanshou Liu of the Goddard Space Flight Center, who analyzed stress lines in the Earth caused by polar and land movements over the last 200 million years, Spilhaus found that what was next outlined in the planetary structure was a combination cube and octahedron.

 

A Cube is composed of six squares, and the Octahedron has eight triangles arranged like two Egyptian pyramids end-to-end, or in the configuration of a flourite crystal. These constitute the next two higher Platonic Solids beyond the Tetrahedron.

 

The Earth's crystalline evolution did not end there, however, but has moved into two even more complex Platonic forms.
 

 

 


THE CRYSTAL GRID AS A KEY TO NATURE AND ANCIENT MYSTERIES


In 1973, three Russians  -  historians Nikolai Goncharov, construction engineer Vyacheslav Morozov and electronics specialist Valery Makarov  -  announced in the science journal for the Soviet Academy of Science, Chemistry and Life, their discovery of a geometric grid pattern which appears to interlink a wide number of natural phenomena into a single planetary system.

 

Their work was based on the findings of American researcher Ivan T. Sanderson who identified what he called twelve vile vortexes or electromagnetic energy disturbances located equidistant over the surface of the globe, the so-called Bermuda Triangle near the Caribbean and the Devil's Sea off Japan being two of these.

 

 

What the three Russians found was an underlying framework linking these centers into a dual crystal structure, a combination between an icosahedron and a dodecahedron.

 

Not surprisingly, these happen to be the Fourth and Fifth Solids in the Platonic series, which were projected outward by the Earth for over the last million years or so.
 

icosahedron

dodecahedron

 

The Icosahedron is composed of twenty triangles forming a ball, and the Dodecahedron is made up of twelve pentagons as its sides.

 

When these two are distributed over the surface of the globe, their lines and node points closely delineate the following planetary elements:

  • High and low barometric pressure areas in the Earth's atmosphere, where storms originate and move along the crystal lattices.

  • The center-points for major ocean currents and whirlpools.

  • Areas of highest and lowest solar and electric influx, along with regions of highest and lowest geomagnetic gauss strength.

  • Points of magnetic/electric anomaly, which serve as gateways into other dimensions.

  • Major planetary fracture zones, where the tectonic plates come together and create seismic and volcanic activities.

  • Major concentrations of ores and petroleum.

  • Planetary hotspots where the internal magma surges closest to the surface.

  • Migration routes of land, air and sea creatures.

  • Locations of major life breeding grounds and genetic pool regions, where new species have originated.

  • Concentrations of human population centers, both past and present.

  • Birth-places for human religions, philosophies, sciences, arts and architectural forms.

This last point is most significant, for it includes the location of most of the major ancient monuments either directly at or clustered around each of the node points of the Earth's crystal grid, including:

  • the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt

  • the ruins of Great Zimbabwe in central Africa

  • the cultural center of Mohenjo Daro on the Indus river in Pakistan

  • the Shensi Pyramids in China

  • the Kunoonda stone circle complex in Australia

  • the ruins of Nan Madol on the Caroline Island of Pohnpei

  • the stone heads of Easter Island

  • Machu Picchu in Peru

  • the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon at Teotihuacan in Mexico

  • the Hopi Four Corners area in the American Southwest,

...to name only a few.

 

Fully 3,300 separate ancient monuments or sacred complexes have been found directly associated with the Icosa-Dodeca grid configuration.

Many of these same structures are also related to the more localized linear energy patterns. It would appear that the planetary crystal grid lines form the main arteries of power, while the local extensions are like capillaries running off the main system which brings the flow of life force into smaller regions.

That the Ancients were very familiar with the Earth's crystal grid can be seen in their literature and in their remains.

 

Plato, in describing how the planet appeared from space, stated that it looked like a ball sewn together with twelve pieces of cloth. These would be the twelve pentagons of the Dodeca, which also forms the framework for the Icosa grid as well.

 

Gold objects found in Khmer ruins in Southeast Asia and among Druidic remains in France, in addition to stone balls unearthed from the Neolithic period in Scotland, were all shaped to show the geometric progression of the crystal grid from Tetrahedron to Dodecahedron, and were used as teaching tools for the Initiates to understand the evolution of the planetary energy systems.
 

 

 


ARE WE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NEXT CRYSTAL EVOLUTION?


Within the last few years researchers around the world have been seeing that a dramatic shift has been taking place in the natural phenomena of the planet.

  • Earthquakes are occurring where there have not been quakes before.

  • Volcanic activity is increasing world-wide.

  • Weather patterns and climates are in major flux, with a rise in floodings in some areas and droughts in others.

  • Migration routes are changing, with birds nesting in new places, and dolphins and whales are increasingly beaching themselves as if lost or looking for new routes.

Most significantly, the geomagnetic field of the planet has been steadily dropping, while the Schumann Resonance or overall global frequency is increasing.

Like the dye points on the balloon, a change of frequency means the old centers and the old crystal grid are dissolving, and a new crystal energy structure is in formation.

Beyond the Platonic series of Solids is another form being geometrically generated out of the old Icosa-Dodeca crystal.

 

If you take an Icosahedron and join together with lines every other point inside the form, you create twelve pentacles or five-pointed stars. If you extend the outer edges of the Icosahedron and join these node points together, you create a second group of twelve pentacles or stars.

 

This becomes the seed crystal that gives birth to a new crystalline form called a double penta-dodecahedron, composed of twelve double-pentacles equally spaced across the surface of the globe.

In one of his prophetic visions of the future, the apostle John, writing in his Book of Revelation, described the coming New Jerusalem as having the light like the light unto a crystal, and being as long as it is wide as it is high, or geometric in shape. He described it has having crowns. or node points, and indicated that its structure would be based on a golden measure or the golden mean proportion of 1 to 1.617.

 

Significantly, the only geometric figure that is composed entirely of golden mean proportions is a five-pointed star, the pentacle. What the prophet may have been portraying is the future New Earth with the new Penta-Dodeca crystal energy grid fully in place.

 

The twelve gemstones and twelve gates of the New Jerusalem would be the twelve double-pentacle faces of the Penta-Dodeca crystal form.

Because the bioelectrical field of the human brain is intricately related to the geomagnetic field of the Earth, any energy shifts in the planet could cause corresponding transformations in the consciousness of humanity as a whole.

  • Is the present spiritual awakening occurring among humankind around the world tied into the transition from one planetary crystal energy form to another?

  • Are prophesied earth changes not something to be feared, but are simply signposts for both personal and planetary changes now happening, linked with the Earth's crystalline metamorphosis?

  • Will the apostle John's vision of a coming world of universal peace and tranquility be our eventual Gift once the Earth's crystal transformations are completed?

These are questions only the future will answer.
