The Citadel of Aleppo is a massive medieval fortified palace in the esoteric centre of the old city of Aleppo. Considered to be one of the oldest and largest castles in the world, which has watched over Syria for millennia.
The recently discovered temple of the ancient storm-god Hadad dates the prehistoric use of the hill to the middle of the 3rd millennium BC, which is referenced in cuneiform texts.
The city became the capital of Yamha and was also known as the City of Hadad. The temple remained in use for centuries from the 2,400 BC to at least the 9th century BC. Let's pray it is still the esoteric centre of this war torn land. Healing to the city and the people can be projected into this heart centre from your heart centre.
The prophet Abraham is said to have milked his sheep on the citadel hill as an act of sacredness. Ewes are closely associated with Western Celtic Fire Festival of Imbolc commonly celebrated on Feb 1 - or the real date when the Sun in astrological terms reaches 15 degrees of Aquarius.

The Mother Land of Stonehenge and Avebury Henge
Sarsen stone was used in the outer circle of 30 stones and lintels at Stonehenge; also in the gigantic trilithons that grace the inner circle of Stonehenge were large sarsen stones. Likewise, Avebury Henge was also constructed of sarsen stones. These are two of the most enigmatic sites in England. Stonehenge is unique in design and Avebury contains the largest stone circle in the world. These sites will be featured in future blogs.
Today we are looking at the Valley of the Stones, which is a natural outcrop of sarsen stones deposited through glaciation.
The Valley is the Mother Land of both Stonehenge and Avebury. It is situated on the Marlborough Downs about 5-7 miles from Avebury and about 25 miles north of Stonehenge.
Close to the delightful 12th century market town of Marlborough, which is 7 miles from Avebury, a recent excavation unearthed an unexpected surprise.
Led by the well-known archaeologist, Mike Parker Pearson, a very large road was discovered which led from the Valley of the Stones, down to Marlborough and Mike Parker Pearson, suggests went all the way to Stonehenge.
Supporting evidence came from the fact that an antiquarian drew lozenge shaped stones that looked like the vast Stonehenge stones. These stones were half dressed - chipped - ready for polishing at Stonehenge and close to the road. These stones did not make their way to Stonehenge!
Clearly, our distant Neolithic ancestors constructed a road to transport the stones. So, the Romans did not introduce roads to England. Incidentally, the Neolithic road was about the same width as a modern day 'A' road.
Professor Richard Atkinson's model is now ruled out.

Meet your European Ancestors...
During a lecture I gave at Origins in London last November, I spoke about Lepenski Vir and the people.
6000 years before the Pyramids and other megalithic sites, these amazing people were constructing homes and living their lives.
Located in Serbia in central Balkan peninsula, Lepenski Vir is very ancient dating between 9500/7200-6000 BC. The late Lepenskir Vir (6300-6000 BC) saw the architectural development of the Trapezoidal buildings which influenced the long houses and later megalithic sites. Bu t the people are equally important as the monuments they left behind.
The Lepenskir Vir site consists of one large settlement with around ten satellite villages. Numerous piscine sculptures have been found showing a link to water, the living river and beneath the ground, the living waters of the Earth Mother.
One burial, I think is that of a priest shaman. It is very unusual as the legs appear like a meditation state or as a butterfly and is most rare, whilst others appear on their back. The various ages of occupation may reflect varies different spiritual practices. www.theaveburyexperience.co.uk www.EsotericCollege.com

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!
This year I will be hosting a Megalithic Odyssey to Cumbria to Castlerigg stone circle and to Swinside which is the best preserved stone circle in Europe.
Come along to experience and explore some of the finest stone circles in the world with the UKs leading dowser and geomant, Maria Wheatley. To book a place email [email protected]
This year Maria is focusing on the esoteric and metaphysical ‘power of the Stone Circle’. We are visiting the megalithic temples that have retained their circular shape such as Castlerigg and Swinside in Cumbria. Rollright and Stanton Drew in southern England to fully understand the ancient secrets of the ceremonial landscape.
A weekend in Cumbria
July 22 2017 Castlerigg stone circle Cumbria
July 23 2017 Swinside stone circle Cumbria
£35 per person per day
At Castlerigg, we will explore how a geospiral energy pattern of deep underground water can produce a secondary energy pattern called a primary halo which is circular in shape.
Standing stones were erected on this energy pattern and this is why stone circles are circular. The deep underground water dictates the shape and size of the primary halo and thus the size and location of a stone circle. The
We will also detect yang water flows and discover how the geopathic stress produced by this type of water is alchemically changed at a sacred site.
As all dowsers and geomancers know underground yang water produces geopathic stress, but our ancestors knew this water could be transmuted to produce a harmonic energy. Discover their knowledge and deepen your awareness of earth energy and geopathic stress transmutation.
Finding the harmonic colour of water
Earth and water energies produce and release particular colours (Earth Colours) and we will discover how the main colours can affect our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. What is the best Earth Colour for you? We will explore the Earth Colours, how and why we resonate with particular earth colours. We will also make Harmonic Colour Healing water at the spiral’s centre and look at how water-energy can relax, soothe and help the body to heal itself.
Swinside is one of the best-preserved stone circles in Western Europe.
Out of the 60 standing stones, 55 still remain and 32 still stand. Each stone is only 5 feet apart making the energies between the stones especially strong.
In the north stands the tallest stone, stalwart and proud at 7 feet 6 inches high. Facing the midwinter sunrise the entrance encourages the flow of solar energy into the womb of the site.
Nearby, is a Mother Hill that is connected to the stone circle by a hermaphrodite energy line which forms a unique relationship with the stone circle. Undoubtedly, this balancing and harmonizing energy flow was once used as a serpentine ceremonial way.
We will also explore Vortex energy at one of the stones and interact with the Akashic Records of this remote stone circle by attuning to the deep water beneath us and connecting to the energy within the water.
We will also learn how to identify, through the emitted harmonic surface pattern, fast flowing underground energies and interact with this dynamic energy.
Some of the collective metaphysical traits due to the shape of the circle.
Geodetic earth and water energies. At the selected stone circles we explore the geospiral phenomena. A geospiral has two spiral patterns at anyone time. One flows in one direction, clockwise, and the other flows in the opposite direction, counter clockwise, but only one is detectable at anyone time. The two opposing directional forces generate vortex energy. Our ancestors were able to detect deep underground pockets of water and not just the closer aquifers known today. We will detect both spirals using a geodetic dowsing technique devised by a Master Dowser.
Form Energy A stone circle that has retained its circular shape is immensely powerful. The circle itself, be that drawn with salt, created by stones or even drawn onto a piece of paper generates Form Energy. Form energy is born of the circle and this is why occultists, Wiccans and Druids have used it for millennia. It manifests concentric circles within and without of its own energy field. This energy blends with geodetic earth energy and becomes a living force that we can work.
Megalithic Energy Standing stones react to the Earth’s inner waters that generate, not just a spiral, but a circular shape, and this is why stone circles are circular. A stone sited on the circle shape begins to absorb the earth energy and converts it into aerial energy.
Geomancy To the ancient Chinese geomancers and the Druids hills, rivers, streams and valleys were all alive. Particular shaped hills were equated with the planets of the solar system. In fact, it is said by some of the top geomants that the whole of the Chinese landscape was gently sculptured to reflect earth and planetary energies. We will look at the wider landscape and learn how to interpret it in relation to ourselves, our homes and, of course, the location of stone circles.

Submerged Prehistoric Settlement
32° 42′ 38.98″ N, 34° 56′ 6.54″ E
Several Neolithic settlements dating from the 9th to the 7th millennium BP (uncalibrated C14) have been exposed on the seabed along the Carmel coast. The sites include a Pre-Pottery Neolithic C (PPNC) settlement called Atlit-Yam, and five Pottery-Neolithic (PN) settlements belonging to the Wadi Rabah culture.
The site of Atlit-Yam is situated some 200-400 m offshore, at a depth of 8-12 m and extends over an area of ca. 40000 m2. Radiocarbon dates for the site gave a range of 8180-7550 years BP (uncalibrated). The architectural finds consist of stone-built water-wells, foundations of rectangular structures, series of long unconnected walls, round installations, ritual installations and stone-paved areas. In addition, 65 human skeletons were discovered in both primary and secondary burials. In at least four of the male individuals, an inner ear pathology - auditory exostosis - caused by diving in cold water, was observed.
Faunal remains consisted of bones of wild and domesticated animals, including domesticated sheep/goat, pig and dog and cattle on the verge of domestication, as well as numerous remains of marine fish. The fish remains included more than 6000 bones, most of them belonged to Balistes carolinesis, (the grey trigger fish), and a few to Serranidae, Sparidae, Sciaenidae, Mugillidae and other fish families. Artifacts made of stone, bone, wood and flint were also recovered, as well as large quantities of botanical remains, including seeds of domesticated wheat, barley, lentil and flax. Some of the artifacts and plant remains may be associated with fishing. The archaeological material indicates that the economy of the site was complex and was based on the combined utilization of terrestrial and marine resources involving plant cultivation, livestock husbandry, hunting, gathering and fishing. The Atlit-Yam site provides the earliest known evidence for an agro-pastoral-marine subsistence system on the Levantine coast.
A ritual installation of megaliths was found at the Atlit-Yam site. It consists of seven stones (1-2.1 m long), six of which are still standing upright, forming a circle (diameter ca. 2.5 m) open to the northwest. The bases of the standing stones are covered with gray travertine attesting to the presence of fresh water in the past. Close to the standing stones to the west, a few flat stone slabs (0.7-1.2 m long) were found lying horizontally. On some of them were hewn shallow cup-marks. It is suggested that these features formed part of a ritual structure, perhaps associated with a fresh-water spring that may have existed at the site. Another installation consists of three oval stones (1.6-1.8 m), two of which are circumscribed by grooves forming schematic anthropomorphic figures.
The well was excavated down to its bottom (5.5 m below sea bottom, 15.5 m below sea-level); the sediments fill contained animal bones, stone, flint, wood and bone artifacts, in addition to charcoal and waterlogged botanical remains. The finds indicate that in its final stage, it ceased to function as a water-well and was used instead as a desposal pit. The change in function was probably related to salinization of the water due to a rise in sea-level. The wells from Atlit-Yam had probably been dug and constructed in the earliest stages of occupation (the end of the 9th millennium BP) and were essential for the maintenance of a permanent settlement in the area.
