Since the 1960’s human consciousness has accelerated into continued higher vibrations of metaphysical and spiritual awareness. Further stimulated by major cosmic events – the Harmonic Convergence in the late 1980’s, the conjunction of Neptune and Uranus in 1993, Neptune transiting Pisces starting in March 2012, along with the technological advent of the internet and emails -- people everywhere began hearing the call communicated from sacred sites worldwide and perceived an urgent desire to visit them.
What is a sacred site?
A sacred site is a locale where the earth’s power radiates in a vortex of energy. Sacred sites are often situated on ley lines, like acupuncture meridians along the earth’s crust. These sacred places can be natural, like holy wells or rock formations, or built out of stone and earth.
Ancient peoples intuited these power places, worshipped Nature, the Goddess and other deities there, performed healings and other ceremonies, and used them as temples of learning.
Often they raised monuments of huge stones, containing high concentrations of crystalline substances, using techniques since forgotten or lost in modern times. They aligned their monuments, as distinctly seen at places like Stonehenge, Carnac in France, and the Egyptian pyramid complex, with the potency of the extra-terrestrial forces of the sun, moon, planets and/or stars to augment the already-vital energies pulsating there. Furthermore, using their arcane knowledge, they were able to "seal in" the immense power using group Thought, Intention and Light, so that sacred sites still vibrate with wisdom and energy after thousands of years.
Ancient people built their sacred sites using sacred geometry such as circles, ovals, and pyramids. Sacred geometry is the geometry inherent in nature, whether it be the energy dance of atoms and molecules, the formation of a crystal, the growth of a plant or human skeleton, the motion of weather systems or galaxies. Certain patterns and ratios such as discovered by Fibonacci are used by nature in the formation of the manifest universe while the process of becoming is governed by these ratios, such as sunflowers and galaxies. Sacred geometry is used by the magical invocation for the same reason. The builders of the ancient sacred monuments observed the ways of nature closely and encoded its architecture into their structures so that the holy place would act as microcosms of the whole universe.

With the advent of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism, new religious edifices were regularly built on top of ancient and sacred sites, like Chartres in France and Glastonbury Abbey in England. However, earliest versions of these religions seemed to have intuitive understanding and ancient memories of the mystical and mysterious forces found at formerly pagan sites, utilizing the power of these sites, and incorporated many cherished ancient rituals and celebrations into their newly-sprung holy traditions.

Modern research has concluded that many of these sites and stones contain high concentrations of electro-magnetic energy which seems to fluctuate with natural cycles. In addition, the knowledge of feng shui has shown that often stone circles were placed on powerful feng shui sites such as Castlerigg and Glastonbury Tor.
Where are sacred sites?
Sacred sites exist the world over. Many are clustered within certain areas of Mexico, Ireland, Egypt, England, Scotland, Peru, Southwestern United States, Malta, Cambodia, Crete, South Sea Islands, Tibet, Nepal, India, New Zealand, and Greece. Sometimes they are huge complexes, like the Egyptian and Mayan pyramids and temples, Avebury and Stonehenge (England), Carnac (France) and the Callanish Stones (Scotland). Many are small, like Loanhead of Daviot (Scotland) or Stanton Drew (England), quietly tucked away in cow pastures or in a forest wilderness, practically unknown except to local residents or sacred tour groups. However, regardless of their size or reputation, all sacred sites contain vast oscillating intensity. Furthermore, each sacred site is unique and contains its own unique vibrational coding, activity and purpose.
Why go to a sacred site?
These sites are boundless sacred and holy repositories containing light, energy and wisdom. Sacred sites are believed to have been originally created by ancient peoples for:
· learning psychic and spiritual abilities, higher knowledge and wisdom; · healing of physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies as well as personal, group and planetary karma; · power generation; · connection – to themselves, each other, other communities, to earth, other dimensions, and to the sun, moon, planets and stars’ dynamism.
Thus, when visiting sacred sites, one can experience spiritual, psychic, and/or metaphysical development in minutes what might ordinarily take months or years. Another benefit is the advancement of personal and global wisdom and knowledge as well as healing one’s self and the planet.
When visiting a sacred site a symbiosis or bonding takes place. In other words, one absorbs the sacred site’s energy and wisdom, while simultaneously one’s superconscious human energy activates and expands the resonance and impact of the site. Mindful respect and honor, then, are important components to practice when visiting sacred sites.
Another special form of linking occurs when visiting a sacred site with a like-minded group. One becomes energetically connected to:
· other individuals and groups who’ve visited the site; · other sites joined along the ley lines of the site being visited; · individuals and groups who’ve visited those other linked sites.
