Book review and observations by Lifetraveller

Ancient Energies of the Earth

David Cowan and Anne Silk

This mega-important book went 'Out of Print' immediately - why ?


            David Cowan could be touching on the reality of how those who stole the ancient knowledge from us are able to control humanity by using and manipulating the natural and man-made earth ley energy system to their own ends.


            Cowan's book is a masterpiece of information exposing the existence of earth ley energies and their usage by the ancients for healing purposes, which should not only never be out of print; but should be compulsory reading for those interested in healing, the origins of standing stones and megaliths such as Stonehenge, the phenomenon of white and black energy spirals emanating from the earth and the most plausible explanation of the formation of crop circles.


            Cowan has walked more than 3,000 miles over the hills of his native Perthshire, Scotland after stumbling upon an energy being emitted from a well known local standing stone. Cowan is a highly respected dowser, the kind of person who uses divining rods to find water, and whilst walking around this standing stone he found that his divining rods kept veering off in one particular direction, so he followed this 'energy'. By following the direction the rods (he quickly resorted to using one) were pointing and with them constantly bringing him back on the track of the energy, he climbed up and over a hill, down the other side and found the energy guided him directly to another standing stone ! This astonishing discovery took Cowan on his epic of journeys on which he discovered and followed numerous energy lines, 'leys' connecting all kinds of standing stones, ancient buildings and sites.


            He identified that some of these ley energy lines were natural and some were man made, deliberately made to send the leys through the houses, now called 'shielings' or ruins, of the ancients for healing purposes. By striking a large stone and hence making 'cup marks' (indents) into it the stone begins emitting energy, because unlike when you energise a ball by throwing it and it stops when it runs out of your energy, the energy created by hitting the stone has nowhere to go or 'run out' and so the stone begins emitting it in a steady stream. By placing the stone upright and directing the energy now being emitted in a certain direction, say to other energised stones far away, a ley energy grid can be set up and Andrew Cowan shows how to build your own ley energy grid in 'Ancient Energies of the Earth'.


            But Cowan's travels and his life's work identified far more. He found that ley lines wander off-line to pass through cavities, such as a dead sheep's skull out on the moorland, a graveyard (the graves forming cavities) as well as water in the form of small ponds or lakes. After passing through these any ley he was following would always come back on line in the direction it had originally been heading. In other words if you build a cavity you can pull ley energies to it and through it and then they will return to being  'on line'.


            Cavities can be small or large such as churches, temples, cathedrals, domes, stately homes, palaces, sporting arenas and any other kind of 'cavity' you can think of. Archways are also cavities of a kind. All of these will be pulling natural and man-made ley energies both to and through themselves.


            Cowan had previously found that white and black energy spirals emanate from the earth in certain places. He found that white energy makes a spiral one way as it rises and that it is healthy for human beings, black energy spirals the other way and is extremely unhealthy. He had already cured a number of people from severe ailments by identifying black energy spirals coming up through their houses and even under the beds of some, through using his divining rods. By placing interlocking glass plates over these black energy spirals Cowan was able to direct them away from people's houses/beds and within a few weeks or months they invariably made a 'miraculous' recovery. Cowan's work in these areas of Geopathic Stress is of the utmost importance as exposure to black energy can cause ME (Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome), MS, Necrotosing Fasciitis, Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimers, Epilepsy, Asthma, Rheumatism, Heart Problems, Allergies and Insomnia and Demonic Possession.


            Just as the striking of a stone energises it so that it begins emitting energy, the forces unleashed by the shifting of tectonic plates deep within the earth result in the permanent emission of these good or bad energies in certain places, which can be used for good or bad purposes if one knows how.


            Cowan identifies well known and lesser known leys running across the British Isles with some of the major ones having countless standing stone, megalithic and ancient ritual sites along their length.

The ancients understood exactly what they were doing.


He also shows two leys running from the Hebridean Islands to the West of Scotland, where the Callanish standing stone megalith is located. One runs due South and meets the Giants Causeway in the North of Ireland. The other runs East North East and passes along the Northern Coast of Scotland, running close to or through the DouneReay Nuclear Reactor and then along to the Queen Mother's Castle Mey on its way.


He also shows two of the main ley lines in England. The first runs from the North West to the South West and the second runs from the South East to the South West. Both have countless ancient sites along their length and both (this author has researched) have the majority of the UK's nuclear power generating stations on or very close to them.


            David Icke's countless assertions that royalty and other ancient families have genes that allow those with their bloodline to be able to shapeshift from a reptilian form into a human form have been dismissed by the mainstream, who delight in labelling Icke a crank as fast and as vociferously as they can


            However the Queen of England's recent statement: 'There are forces at work in our country that we do not understand' has not been so summarily dismissed by the establishment.


            If there were ley energy grids of white beneficial and black harmful energy, patterned across the United Kingdom (as everywhere else on the planet), these leys would be 'attracted' to go off-line and through the kinds of places I have previously mentioned.


            It is also important to understand the work of Ellis Taylor in investigating the abduction and/or murder of young people in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Taylor has identified patterns of these abductions/murders correlating to both the ancient art of numerology and occult calendar dates. Icke too talks about occult calendar dates with relevance to major traumatic events such as the death of Princess Diana.


            However Taylor's work is producing astounding results in that he has identified that many of these abductions/murders not only correlate in numeric and occult ways, but that many are also correlated in lines and that these lines cross ancient places of satanic ritual/worship or powerful black energy, or just plain evil energy (such as prisons like Parkhurst on the Isle of Wight where most of the UK's most dangerous criminals are incarcerated). They also cross various royal properties/palaces and doubtless stately homes as well. Bear in mind that ley energies can wander off course to pass through cavities of any size. The longer the ley the further off course it can wander.


            Was David Cowan too close to exposing the truth about ley energy systems ? Was this why his book was allowed to go out of print immediately ?

Is David Icke right when he says that those in 'power' in our world stole the ancient knowledge from us for their own use so that they could hold the power upon the earth and control humanity ?

Could Ellis Taylor actually be piecing together that ley energy, satanic ritual and numerology have a sinister bearing on the abductions and murders of young people ?


            What are the possibilities ?


It is indeed possible that there is a ley energy grid in the UK (and globally) of both white and black energy that was originally constructed by the ancients for healing purposes (white) that was then hijacked by people such as the Phoenecians (who Icke has written about extensively) who came out of Babylon and placed their standing stones (ley energies) all up the West side of the United Kingdom long before the Romans arrived and that they then tapped this grid into black energy spirals that could well be used for sinister purposes by those who know how to use such energy.


            Let us say for a moment that David Icke is right and that those who control our world, behind the politicians, do indeed have the shapeshifting bloodline, but that these people/beings feed off certain kinds of energy, just as Evil feeds off the human energy of Fear, in order to be able to maintain their human form.


If this grid of black energy could be simultaneously energised at prearranged (occult) times and those who are able to energise the grid could tap into massed human energies of either Fear or passion and excitement (sporting venues) then those who feed off such energies could become 'energised' via the ley grid, but perhaps this energy lasts only for a period of time before they need to become 'energised' once more.


            It is well known that if you start dabbling with the dark side of the occult and Evil it will draw you in more and more until both you and your life are consumed by it. Similarly it is possible that those who need to energise themselves with black energies, for whatever reason, find that they need to re-energise themselves more and more with black energy as time goes by.


            This is far more than speculation.


If you visit the Isle of Wight and go to Quarr Abbey and remain in the Abbey for some time and feel the black energy there you may find it most unpleasant.

If you find it pleasant you may either have a gene that lets you 'enjoy' such black energy or you may already have been travelling down a dark road that has enabled you to be able to 'accept' such energy.


Ellis Taylor identifies Parkhurst Prison (Isle of Wight) as being on a line with some of the abductions/murders that he investigates. Quarr Abbey is built on a powerful black energy spiral and has something to do with this line as well. There is most probably a separate ley grid on the Isle of Wight linked to a countrywide grid on the UK mainland, linked to a worldwide grid of ley energy lines, all connected via 'cavities'.


            Ask yourself if you have ever been anywhere that you didn't like being.

Somewhere where you felt really bad or maybe felt some sort of evil and you just didn't want to be there.

If so, where was it ? In a building ? Perhaps that building could be acting as a cavity for a black energy ley.

            Ask yourself if you have ever met anyone you felt was truly evil.

A person or people from whom you felt such evil that you simply did not want to be in their presence any longer.

Ring any bells ?

Why would some people or places be able to emanate such evil ?


The following are worth thinking about as well:


            Andrew Cowan has identified the existence of different types of ley energies criss-crossing the country (UK) and that these are either natural or deliberately constructed and can be used for healing purposes.


            Ellis Taylor says that the lines that link many of the abductions/murders of young people in the UK and elsewhere also link through many religious sites and continue on to pass through such places as The Needles on the Isle of Wight, Brussels, Athens and Giza in Egypt.


            Taylor also says that numerology and satanic calendars have a great deal to do with the timing of abductions and murders. Do these terrible activities energise the grid through each dreadful act at the moment it is committed and then further energise the grid through the human energy of the massive trauma created afterwards (the murders of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in the UK) ?


            David Icke asserts from evidence given to him by numbers of people that satanic rituals, including murders and child abuse and sacrifice, are rampant amongst those who control our world and that these 'people of power' have bloodlines that trace back to ancient Babylon and beyond to the Caucasus mountains after the Great Flood. This would explain the inbreeding of royalty, for example, to ensure the bloodline remains strong. He maintains that people of these bloodlines are not human as we know human beings to be, but are able to maintain human form when they wish to.


            Think about any place or any people you have ever felt really uncomfortable about and why they might have this 'power'.


            Of course if there were such a ley energy grid that could be used for the purposes of mutual energising by certain 'beings' as outlined here, it would be imperative that the knowledge of its existence be kept from 'us' at all costs.


            Which would explain the immediate stifling of a hugely important work that might expose it, like Andrew Cowan's 'Ancient Energies of the Earth'.


            Fortunately Cowan's work will be reprinted in 2003 under the title 'Leylines and Earth Energies' through American publisher David Hatcher Childress.
