Ancient Healing Stones of England

For a long time it has been assumed that magnetic anomalies exist at certain ancient sites. These sites include stone circles, monoliths and megalithic structures.

The ancient people knew how to harness the energies of the earth. They constructed megalithic sites that would attract ground currents and turn the sites into places with powerful energies. The locations for these megalithic sites were not chosen at random. They were constructed nearby or above sources of primary water. Water and stones together act as powerful energy conductors between the heavens, the atmosphere and the surface and depths of the earth.

That's why most of the ancient megalithic sites and standing stones were deliberately placed and aligned in order to conduct these electro-magnetic currents. The stones store and generate energy fields and released them in the surrounded area.  This energy would be enhanced by the choice of the stone, usually stones rich in quartz.

Depending on the type of stones, they can also emit healing energies. Not all stones with these properties were placed deliberately by the ancient people. Some occur naturally in nature.

Some archaeologists believe that Stonehenge was a healing temple. There is evidence that the stone circle attracted ailing pilgrims from around Europe in the ancient times. The inner circle was composed of bluestones which are believed to have healing properties. Nowadays only 43 of the original 80 bluestones remain in the stone circle.

The Longstone of Minchinhampton also known as the Holey Stone is a single standing stone with natural holes in it. The stone is made of oolitic limestone. Local legend says that passing a young child through one of the natural holes can cure them of illnesses such as measles or whooping cough.

The Men-an-Tol consists of four granite stones: a holed stone with two upright stones to each side arranged in a line and a fallen stone at the foot of one of the upright stones. The real purpose of this arrangement is unknown. It's believed that the site was used for ritual and ceremonial purposes. Legend has it that the holed stone can cure children suffering from rickets if they are passed through the hole nine times. The stone was also believed to increase women's fertility.

The King and Queen Stones are rock outcrops composed of oolitic conglomerate. Legend has it that passing through the stones can cure illness. It was also believed that if pregnant women sat on the stone, it would help with their pregnancy.
