Karahundj, Armenia’s Stonehenge

Karahunj or Carahunge (also known as Zorats Karer or Armenia’s Stonehenge) is 3,500 years older than England’s Stonehenge and 3,000 years older than the Egyptian pyramids. The total area of the observatory is 7 hectares and some carvings make this a very special site!

Connection between Meridians of Human Body and Universal Meridian Lines.

The Meridian Lines, also called Acupuncture Lines, in and on our Bodies are Connected to the grid lines that encircle the Planet and intersect at acknowledged Power places such as Machu Picchu, Sedona or lines on which the Pyramids in Gizeh were built, as well as other Sacred places around the planet like Stonehenge, Glastonbury and others.These lines continued out and Connected us to a vastly larger grid, tying us to the entire Universe, the Cosmos we’re living in. There are axiatonal lines throughout the Universe, the Galaxies, the Solar System, our Planet and our Bodies. These axiatonal lines Connect all things with Divinity (Creator, Source, Spirit, God, however you may call it), and these lines also follow the Chinese Meridian Lines in our Body, but at a deeper level.

At one point in time, we became Disconnected from these lines and lost the Fullness of our Inherent Connection to the Cosmos, distancing us from our previously rapid and expansive rate of Evolution. A choice which Disconnected our axiatonal lines from all around us and prevented us from reconnecting to our Divine Source. We must remember our Connection, and to re-establish it, so we can eventually Reconnect to the vast Intelligence that’s around us. Each of our Bodies contains its own set of Energetic Lines and Points. Although only remnants of what they once were, these lines and points continue to serve as our Interface with the Universe: a Channel that facilitates our Communication of Energy, Light and Information between large and small, Macrocosm and Microcosm, the Universe and Humankind.

— WE ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR CULTURAL SURVIVAL —

We were flooded out, and not compensated, with the building of Shasta Dam in 1945, and now Westlands Water District and the Federal Government are pushing to do it again. This latest proposal would inundate or damage more than 40 sacred sites, including our Coming of Age ceremony place on the Winnemem Waywaqat (McCloud River).

Representative Jim Costa, of Fresno, has introduced a bill, co-signed by a number of California Democratic Congressmen, to raise the dam. No mention of the standing debt to our people.

Is your U.S. representative Doug LaMalfa? You can make a difference to support Winnemem Wintu cultural survival by telling him not to authorize the proposal to raise Shasta Dam by 18.5 feet.

You can call LaMalfa at (530) 223-5897 or email him by filling out this online form: https://lamalfa.house.gov/contact/email-me (fixed link).

Here is a sample letter you can use: http://www.winnememwintu.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Dear-Representative-LaMalfa.docx.

If you live in another district, please contact your Senators and Congresspeople (http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml), in any state you’re in, to remind them that a debt is still owed by the United States to the Winnemem Wintu people, and ask them to vote NO on any proposal to raise Shasta Dam.

Hundreds of protesters from three tribes and their allies stopped construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for the second day in a row Wednesday, but law enforcement and private security are now preparing to amp up their presence. Morton County deployed police, highway patrol and G4S personnel to dispel the gathering, reportedly bringing tear gas because of rumors that the protests were violent.

The $3.8 billion-project will funnel 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota to Illinois later this year. Members of the Sioux tribe have argued the pipeline will pollute drinking water as it crosses the Missouri and Little Missouri rivers and will disturb sacred sites.

The rivers are a water source for thousands of residents from the reservation and millions more downstream.

“Our Mother Earth is sacred. All things evolve and work together. To poison the water, is to poison the substance of life. Everything that moves must have water. How can we talk about and knowingly poison water?”

“You give them an inch, they take a mile,” 

Olowan Sara Martinez of the American Indian Movement

Many of the protesters have broadcast their messages on social media in an open call to other tribes to join in. “It’s in our history. We don’t wanna give them an inch. We don’t wanna give them a mile.”


Thank you for standing up, it’s not easy to fight big oil. #Love it! Sacred sights, clean water as it’s all life mean nothing to these cold blooded oil barons.

WA Government Deregisters World's Oldest Rock Art Collection As Sacred Site | newmatilda.com

The world’s oldest and largest collection of rock art – the Burrup Peninsula, or Murujuga, on the Dampier Archipelago – has been deregistered as a sacred site under new guidelines to the Western Australia’s weak Aboriginal heritage laws, which state there must be evidence of religious activity to qualify it as a ‘sacred site’. The change has led to questions about whether the art will be reinstated to the cultural heritage register following a successful Supreme Court decision that ruled against the WA government’s definition of a ‘sacred site’.

Who wants to bet that they’ve done this because this site is sitting on top of prime mining land?!

Detailed studies of the geographic alignment of famous ancient world sites have revealed interesting correlations. According to the diagrams presented above, the Great Pyramid at Giza is aligned with Machu Picchu, the Nazca Lines, Easter Island, Ur, Ollantaytambo, Persepolis and Mohenjo Daro along a straight line that makes a great circle around the Earth. This global effort was performed within a margin of error of less than one tenth of one degree of latitude. This would suggest an ancient knowledge of the shape and dynamics of the plane by seemingly different cultures who existed at different time periods, according to the traditional Archaeological view. Most strikingly, this sort of grand scale engineering was well before current accepted thought allows room for human consciousness to be advanced enough for such beliefs. 

The Great Pyramid at Giza is not only located along this ancient “great circle” of latitude which many researchers speculate was an ancient “equatorial plane” of the Earth, but it was constructed at the geographic center of all landmasses of the Earth. All other sacred sites, including churches  synagogues and cathedrals, are geometrically tied to this physical point on the Earth sphere through an interlocking energy grid known as ley lines. These ley lines originate and end with the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Ley lines are one of the most enduring Earth mysteries. A network of prehistoric pathways perform a criss-crossing of the country-side. Some believe them to have mystical significance. Ancient cultures certainly knew of and utilized these connections. Ley lines, also known to some cultures as “dragon lines,” are a phenomena that most people have heard of but few really understand. Indeed it would be fair to say that no-one understands their complete function and workings, as their existence is driven by a force not currently understood by the prevailing scientific paradigm. Ley lines interact with and shift with the Earth’s magnetic field. They seem to be formed by geometric principles that may exist at a higher dimension of organization of light, sound, energy and above the material plane.

On an esoteric (focus on the inner workings of things) level, the soul form is thought to attach through these electromagnetic energy grids which create the the illusion of space and time. These higher dimensional forms of consciousness are drawn down from a formless state and are linked back to one source of creation — through a web of sorts — a myriad of grid energies governs all creation within the material dimension. This pattern of creation has been described as the same creational design — the Flower of Life —  which has been a concept described across mystical traditions. The tree of life is how mystics describe our connection into matter. This is described in different ways through different traditions. The soul is linked to physical reality through this grid matix pattern driven by sacred geometry and linked to the universe through a series of dimensions that serve to order reality.

We are still here, holding ceremony at our sacred places, and doing what we need to do to be Winnemem Wintu, of the McCloud River, in Northern California.

The federal government tries to erase us by calling us “unrecognized”, but we have been here long before the United States was invented, and we will be here long after it’s gone.

I was rewatching “Cheeseburger Backpack” when something occurred to me.

As we all know by now It seems like the main purpose of Gemkind occupying Earth was to breed more gems and/or exploit it for resources. But this brings up a very big question:

Why are there so many temples and other sacred Gem sites on Earth? There is the Beach City Temple, the Lunar Sea Spire, the Sky Spire, the Sea Shrine, the dueling arena, Rose’s Garden and who knows how many others that might have not been seen yet on the show. Why bother building so many ornate places of Gem culture on an ultimately doomed planet?

For this I can only think of two theories.

One theory is that these places were merely for Gems stationed on Earth to inhabit. The Kindergarten process likely takes a very long time to happen, so in the mean time Gems would create these places to make Earth feel more like home during their stay. The problem I see with this is I doubt a simple station for the gems would be this ornate unless they were inhabited by Gem nobles or their was an incredibly large Gem population on Earth. They may be beautiful but I doubt military or engineer minded gems would live in something so inefficient.

The second theory is more detailed and is personally the one I prefer to believe in. I believe that those in Rose’s faction are who built the temples. Like I said before I highly doubt Gems like Jasper or Peridot would build such places. So perhaps these sites didn’t exist before the gem war. Suppose more than just Rose, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl survived the war. Perhaps dozens if not hundreds of gems are now on Earth forever. What do these gems do? Make Earth feel like home, since it is now the only home that they now know. However the corruption starts to set in, causing more and more sites being abandoned and forgotten. Without gems looking after them, these areas start to fall into disrepair like the Lunar Sea Spire, until only one site is left that isn’t forlorn. This site is the Beach City Temple, since it is the home of the remaining Crystal Gems.  

 This is why Pearl has fond memories of some of these sites and why the Crystal Gems care about the condition of these places. These sites were the homes of their culture and their comrades, whom unfortunately can no longer look after these places themselves.

This has been a fan analysis of Gem temples and other sites of interest. This is only my personal outlook, so don’t let it discourage any head-canons or fanwork.

SPIRITUAL PLACES WITH THE STRONGEST ENERGY FIELD

1. Rila- Bulgaria – some might seem surprised, but this mountain range is one of the energy centers of the world. Not accidentally, one of the greatest spiritual masters of the XX century – Beinsa Duno is Bulgarian and has chosen to transmit wisdom in Rila. The area around Rila’s Lakes actually has very strong energy and more sensitive people feel it and receive strange dreams when they stay in the area.

2. Machu Picchu in Peru – the lost city of the Incas is one of the places linked to the energy centers of the world. The Incas built Machu Picchu in a particular place, high in the Andes. The place itself channels the energy and allows people to experience something that just does seems not belonging to our world.

3. Socotra– Socotra is an archipelago of four islands in the Indian Ocean to the Horn of Africa, The largest occupies about 95 percent of the total area of the island. Its specific landscape as well as flora and fauna look like come out of a science fiction movie and can easily make you think you are on another planet or in prehistoric times. As a result of isolation, at Socotra were born many specific species that are found nowhere else in the world. The spiritual energy here connects the human soul directly with the cosmos.

4. The plateau Uluru in Australia – located in the center of the continental country, Uluru is the spiritual center of Australia. Legends say that the plateau itself is hollow and it is an energy source, which they call Tiukurpa (Dreamtime). Ancient tribes surrounding the plateau have left many stories from the “Dreamtime” painted in some of the caves in the area. In the tribes has remained the belief that when a person goes around the plateau, he gets spiritual visions.

5. The Easter Island– This is one of the most isolated places in the world, which is home to a huge statues. Scientists have absolutely no answer to the question “Who made them?” Overall the whole place is a complete mystery – and unfinished figures, ceremonial village with its 53 stone houses without windows and doors and many others. The biggest mystery, however, remains so. “Navel of the World” – it is said that this is the circular stone bearing the secrets of the universe, the one who collects the most important spiritual energy lines of the Earth.

6. The Sanctuary Belintash– The ancient sanctuary Belintash- Bulgaria is one of the three points (Belintash <> Cross Forest <> Karadjov stone), forming one of the strongest energy zones in Europe. On the rocky plateau are outlined mirror projections of important parts of the star chart. In the area around Belintash and in it, there is a strong energy, and hundreds of people testify for a frequent paranormal phenomena.

7. Berat- Albania  is the pride of Albanian architecture. The old town is under UNESCO protection. Berat presents a wonderful combination of eastern and western culture, traditions and customs. The town is a treasury of Albanian history and is evidence of the harmony between religion and culture. In Berat, people experience very powerful, spiritual healing energy. In the III century the city became “the city- castle”. Today, behind the city walls are still living people, who don’t believe in disease, that make this place unique and authentic.

8. Stonehenge– Stonehenge is the most famous megalithic monument in the world, probably dedicated to the Sun, with an ancient necropolis. Located in the middle of Salisbury Plain in the county of Wiltshire, UK. Probably functioned as an astronomical observatory in connection with cults and economic performance of the agricultural population. It is constructed from the monolithic slabs and pillars, forming concentric circles.

9. The Bosnian Pyramids– They are on the planet long before the Neolithic era. Radio-carbon analyzes conducted by the University of Shlyonsk / Poland, 2011 / date this pyramids before 12,350 years / plus / minus 50 years /. According to this analyzes, The Bosnian pyramidal structures are thousands of years older than the Egyptian pyramids. Under the pyramid were found three underground rooms and a little blue lake. The lake is with sterile clean water, no bacteria, algae, fungi, microorganisms, animals, or moss and mud. They call it living water because it purifies  the body. This means that these facilities are “healing rooms”. Human body regenerate faster and the illness disappears.

10. Peak Kailash in Tibet – the top has religious significance for 2 religions – Buddhism and Hinduism. Both of the religions have their own legends about the place, but united around the assertion that the tip is the home of the gods and one of the energy centers of the world where climbing it can bring spiritual bliss.

‘For as long as it takes’: Native American protesters defy North Dakota pipeline construction

“Joey Montoya, like other protesters near Cannon Ball, at the northern boundary of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota, sees himself as not just protecting the local community from a new oil pipeline – but also the country and the earth.

“Native communities are always just the first to be affected. We’re always at the front lines when oil companies come in.”

Montoya, a 22-year-old member of the Lipan Apache tribe from San Francisco, is part an influx of Native American and environmental activists from all over the country who have gathered in the remote part of the state to take a stand against the $3.7bn North Dakota Access Pipeline, which tribal members say threatens to pollute drinking water and damage sacred sites

In recent years, there have been a string of indigenous actions against oil pipelines in the US and Canada, but this one is already attracting especially broad support. On Facebook, Jon Eagle Sr, the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer at the Standing Rock Reservation, affirmed that the Seven Council Fires of the Sioux Nation – representing all Sioux groups – had come together for the first time since 1876 over this issue. Tribal chairman Archambault called in a statement for “my fellow American citizens (to) stand with my people”.

Mossett thinks that Native American pipeline activism may be at a crossroads. “This is the first time that the tribes have been coming together in recent history.”

Australia's Own Version Of Islamic State Destruction Of Sacred Objects And People | newmatilda.com
When the Islamic State released videos proudly advertising the destruction of Assyrian artifacts in a museum in Nineveh, it was met with international outrage. The calculated destruction of the cultural and religious heritage of various minority groups within the Islamic State’s sphere of influence has been met with almost as much attention as their war crimes. When it comes to Iraq, a decapitated statue stands almost equal to a decapitated human as a marker of barbarity.

ARRESTS CONTINUE A MILE FROM STANDING ROCK INDIAN RESERVATION AS 250 AMERICAN INDIANS PROTEST PIPELINE

CANNONBALL, NORTH DAKOTA—Some 250 American Indians, with more on their way, are protesting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline that will extend from North Dakota to Chicago. Friday is the third day of the protests and arrests. Two American Indians were arrested this morning.

By late morning some 30 police cruisers from local, county and state law enforcement agencies were on site where the protests are taking place. The protest is taking place one-mile from the Standing Rock Reservation.

Tribal citizens from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have had a spirit camp where the Cannonball and Missouri meet.

Tribes from North Dakota and South Dakota are adamantly opposed to oil companies coming near tribal lands in fear of pipelines bursting and then contaminated water supplies, tribal lands and especially sacred sites on tribal lands.

The opposition intensified after the U.S. Army Corps Engineers released their approval on July 26, 2016. Dakota Access, LLC, the company laying the pipeline began construction against opposition from American Indian tribes and other environmental groups.

Dakota Access LLC, the company behind the pipeline, wrote in a statement to ThinkProgress: “We are working with local law enforcement on this situation to ensure the safety of our employees and the safety of those who live and work in the area.” They went on to add a particularly grim note, saying “We will press charges against anyone who interferes in the construction of the pipeline. Construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline will continue across all four states along the route.”

“Our phone service is being interrupted because of the plane Dakota Access has flying over our protest site,” said Phyliss Young, a Standing Rock tribal citizen, to Native News Online this afternoon.

The Standing Rock Sioux has requested a preliminary injunction against the U.S. Army Corps Engineers’ approval to proceed with the pipeline. The injunction is to heard in a federal court in Washington, D.C. on August 24, 2016.

The injunction filed on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux maintains the U.S. Army Corps Engineers approval was “in violation of multiple federal statutes that authorize the pipeline.”
