MAKES THE CROP CIRCLES?
One of our main interests was to solve the
chicken and egg conundrum. Were
the earth energies in place before the formation of the crop circle or
were they laid down by the arrival of the circle?
The answer to both questions was yes!
94% of dowsers confirmed that earth energies were present before
the circle was formed. However,
69% found that the energies had changed with the laying down of the
formation. The explanation
of this apparent contradiction relates to the different types of energy
that are found (and the over simplistic question that was asked).
The common types of energy found were deep underground streams,
shallow veins of water, bands of ley energy, blind springs and down
shafts (these are points at which energy travels vertically up or down).
Many people found deep underground streams or bands of ley energy crossing at or close to the centre of the circles. The bands of ley energy could often be tracked to nearby churches or topographical features. Ley energy was frequently reported at Bishops Canning and South Field but mentioned less at White Hill and East Kennet. Each formation also appeared to rely on a number of blind springs and down shafts. Down shafts and small energy vortices were often found at points where the direction of lay of the crop changed.
It was also common to find a blind spring radiating from the centre of the circle with (often 7) concentric rings (not a spiral) matching changes in the pattern of the crop. There were a number of water veins close to the surface that ran from blind springs and to down shafts. These often followed the outline of key shapes. It is these shallow veins of water that appear to have been moved when the circle was formed.
Some dowsers identified a
grid of alternating positive and negative lines centred on the circle.
The direction and power of these lines related to the direction
in which the crop was laying. In
addition to the horizontal patterns a seven-turn energy helix was found
around a vertical double diamond cone of energy at the centre of one
formation. At another site
the energy pattern was described as a dome rising to a height of 250 ft
above the field. One
attempt was made to measure the strength of the energies.
This gave a Bovis Biometer reading of 4,000 outside of the
circle; 7,000 just inside and 30,000 at the centre.
|Effects on People
Dowsers were asked to note any physical, mental, emotional or
spiritual sensations whilst they were in the circles. A
few people (13%) reported negligible or minimal change. The majority reported feelings that were “good”,
“calming”, “peaceful”, and “loving”.
Whilst others experienced significant change - “The experience
was electric. It was like
being on a playground ride.....It was like being in a storm at sea”.
The intensity of the sensation seemed to vary at different points
within the formations. The
centres of blind springs and down shafts created the most noticeable
change. Kneisiology tests
confirmed a depletion of muscle strength at key points and lines.
The direction of lay of the crop also affected most people.
Walking in the same direction as the lay of the crop was found to
be easier than walking against the lay.
were very few mentions of tiredness and loss of energy but it was
noticeable that dowsing in the circles for a length of time led to
physical side effects. By mid
afternoon most dowsers had stopped walking around and were sitting quietly
in the circles (this appeared to bear no relationship to age or alcohol
consumption). Other effects
included a feeling of “pins and needles” and one dowser reported that
his back pain had eased. A
follow up letter explained that one dowser had felt physically, mentally
and emotionally drained following the weekend but had then recovered
quickly to become fitter and more “sorted out” than for months.
people dowsed the aura of the seed heads (wheat or Barley).
The measurements used varied between imperial, metric and paces.
Nevertheless, a distinct difference was noted.
The measurements have been converted into standard units for ease
Some people also tested the moisture content of the soil. In every case the soil was considerably drier within the formation than outside. This was most noticeable at the most recent formation (White Hill) but was still apparent in circles that had formed and been exposed to the elements for 3 or 4 weeks.
made (E.g. physically)
total does not equal 100 as more than one answer could be ticked.
this doesn’t answer the big question.
It is clear that the earth and its energies play a significant part
in the formation of crop circles. It
is also apparent that there is some other creative force at work.
The headings used of “previous civilizations” and “other
civilizations” have an influence but they do not provide the full
answer. As with a lot of
dowsing our task is to define the right question to ask.
Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
received a bonus, for the second year running, of the arrival of a
spectacular new crop circle during our stay.
This has turned out to be the most sophisticated design to date.
It has over 450 different diamond shapes set between radiating
lines. It was nicknamed the
bar magnet or magnetic field as it resembled the patterns made by iron
filings around a bar magnet. A
few of us were fortunate to enter the formation
at dusk, within 24 hours of it appearing. The experience was exhilarating and resulted in a sleepless
night. Subsequent studies
by the Wyvern Dowsers have shown that the “magnet” points due north
and south. It has also
caused the Michael Line to divert from its well-plotted course and pass
through the formation. This
adds more fuel to the chicken and egg debate.
Significant earth energies were present at or near the site
before the crop circles were formed.
Deep water or energy lines cross at or close to the centre of the
Blind springs are often found at the centre of symmetrical
Downshafts or energy vortices mark the focal points of the crop
· Shallow veins of water follow the shape of many designs.
· Many of these shallow water veins appear to have been shaped close to the time of creation of the circle.
· Many people are affected physically or emotionally either during or following a visit to a circle.
· The auras of seed heads taken from within the circle are considerably larger than the auras of heads in the surrounding crop.
· The moisture content of the soil is significantly lower within the circle than outside.· Forces other than mankind appear to be involved in the formation of these patterns.
Thanks are due to everyone who turned up and contributed to the weekend especially those who shared their specialist knowledge E.g. Jim Lyons, Michael Glickman, Dave Sangwine and Alies.
