Dolmens. Spiritual approach.
Aren't we humans the most curious of all creatures inhabiting this wondrous yet challenging world? We are forever asking questions about our origins and want answers to our never-ending versions of Why? How? Where?and When?
As centuries and millennia have passed as part of the natural cycles of this world, great civilizations have arisen, prospered and disappeared leaving behind more or less preserved ruins of their ancient settlements. More often than not, just a mere fragment of some or other item is left behind in the wake of their existence. Among all the remainders of times past, ritual burial sites have been one of the anthropologist’s most familiar evaluation and interpretation tools. And yet, everything these civilizations left behind for their descendants can really only be represented through those external forms, left for anyone to interpret as they choose. The Egyptian, Mayan or Chinese pyramids, or the countless Dolmens seemingly strewn across the country-sides over large parts of the world, do represent just that - tangible, visual structures of various dimensions and shapes. But is this - along with some preserved writings - really everything that remains for us to cherish from the far-off ancestors of our human race?
No-one can doubt the existence of a past civilization when looking at the evidence of its tangible remains. But an additional question for many has been whether these remains can offer spiritual information or guidance besides their mere tangible, visual enjoyment. Could these forms represent not only material evidence from antiquity for us, but also communicate the immense spiritual experience which - we wonder - might have accumulated during the course of existence of such a civilization?
This article is exploring and reporting such a possible spiritual discovery. Supported by literary evidence and increasingly by archeological discoveries which challenge traditional historical (and especially certain religious) time-lines, notably Michael Cremo's work, some modern historians and archeologists have put forward a hypothesis that five to ten thousand years ago a great Vedic civilization existed, prospering and flourishing all over the Earth. The great spiritual texts of the Vedas make up but one part of its spiritual heritage. Very few material traces of its existence have been acknowledged by traditional institutions, particularly since all of the assumptions of our recorded human history would need to be re-written. Although valiant scientists and researchers, risking their professional reputations and livelihoods, are promising to solve some of the riddles which scientists have been unable to address. There is a hypothesis now that the ubiquitous Dolmens are silent sentinels and an important material representation left behind by this Vedic civilization. These remains might be able to remind us of the existence of a culture which is thought to have flourished as long as 100.000 years ago, even associated by some with the mythological search for the Aryans.
Hundreds of thousands of Dolmens are scattered all over the world. They exist in Germany, France, Spain, England, Holland, Switzerland, Israel, Netherlands, India, and Korea, as well as in the widespread regions of Russia.
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia tells us that Dolmens (also known as cromlechs, antas, Hünengräber, Hunebedden, quoits, and portal Dolmens) are a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of three or more upright stones (megaliths) supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table). Most date, it says, from the early Neolithic period in Britain (4000 BC to 3000 BC).
Scientists still do not agree on the purpose of these megalithic structures. And if they harbor any theories, with a few exceptions, they have not disclosed their theories to us. The most widespread hypotheses are as follows.
The Dolmens found in the South of Russia and in the Northern Caucasus as well as along the coast of the Black Sea, most familiar to this writer, are more frequently in architecturally complete forms, consisting of five or six stone plates and looking like closed stone boxes. You might Imagine four rectangular plates put upright to form the four walls of an enclosure, a fifth lying horizontally as a rooftop and a sixth plate making up the base. As a rule there is an aperture in the front cross-section plate, most often round. They may, however, have a triangular or square opening, sometimes with a stone fuse. The plates are most commonly connected in a groove. The walls of some of the structures are inclined. For many years they were treated as ancient megalithic structures, and more often than not, they were disassembled and the stones used for new construction purposes.
This was the story of the Dolmens as most people would have told it before the year 1997, and for many people, nothing has changed about their idea of these structures. But in that year, Dolmens rose to prominence by way of Vladimir Megre's Book Two of the popular The Ringing Cedars of Russia series entitled with that same name, with which many of our readers will be familiar. In that second book of the series, published in 1997 (translated into English in 2006) Anastasia talked to Vladimir about the functions of these megalithic Dolmen structures in ways no-one had every even considered. According to Anastasia these sites are much more than just ancient tombs. She explained to Vladimir that they should be directly associated with the living souls of our forefathers and to do so in very literal ways. These ancestors, she said, had undergone severe measures to stay spiritually connected to these structures, so that they could connect with the "Mind of the Universe". They did this with the purpose of preserving those feelings and images of unity with God and all His creation, she said. Here, according to Vladimir Megre, is what Anastasia wanted her readers to know about them.
She compared the significance of the Egyptian Pyramids with that of the Dolmen structures, but saw the latter as the prototypes of those larger pyramids in terms of their energetic and spiritual significance. She described the Dolmens as much more powerful receivers and points of contact for the Mind of the Universe, and she said they were also much older. The Egyptian pyramids, according to her, functioned similarly, but because of their size, needed more people all around their sides to project, by way of the radiation of their combined thoughts, group energy which would gather at the top of the pyramid. (Might that be the mysterious, un-known function of the "missing" capstone, one might wonder?)
Before we go on to explore some of Anastasia's amazing descriptions about Dolmens, which she presented to an incredulous Valdimir, it may help to preface her story with her explanation of how she sees the true history of the human race. Anastasia, with her own remote viewing capacity functioning easily through time and space, believes that our race started to degrade from a highly evolved people connected to all powers of Divine Mind to the equivalent of simple-minded dullards about ten thousand years ago. She saw what history describes as evolution, namely such so-called inventions and achievements as stone-axes and the fashioning of spears and other tools as the play-activities of inane and insane "children" who had done the equivalent of dismantling a sophisticated space-ship so as to play with and re-assemble some of its parts, completely unaware of the preciousness and significance of the vessel. In the same way she has described our attempts at space-travel crude and ultimately hopeless and useless. Man, she says, is and has been - as she has proven herself countless times - perfectly able to do all those things him or herself without the man-made contraptions which do nothing but add to the suffering and degradation of Mother Nature and its inhabitants through pollution of all its domains. (See also archeologist Michael Cremo's book: Human Devolution)
Anastasia further elaborated upon the fact that those of our ancestors who retained their ability to work in unison and as direct expression of Divine Mind, were very concerned about the long-term consequences of this degradation and "fall" of the human race. The few leaders who had retained the connections and powers of their "pristine origins" wanted to help their decedents at a future time, when the planet would have de-volved into the dire condition which they clearly foresaw. By way of diligent meditations, they came upon a most curious solution.
“Vladimir," she explained upon his asking about the powers of the Dolmens, "living people retreated there to die." They went into a form of eternal meditation, she said, although the process seemed more complicated, but as often would be the case, she was at a loss for words to describe this unusual process of their "meditating in eternity" by way of this loving sacrifice. It seems that by consciously leaving their bodies, out of loving care for their human brothers and sisters of the future, they affected a form of "tethering" of their living souls to these Dolmen-structures. But more than that, they therewith actually seemed to have succeeded in tethering a connection of the Mind of the Universe, which they still did possess at that time, to these holy stones as well. As a rule, we learn from Anastasia's explanations, these were Elders of high regard and development and not everyone was granted their request for such a devotional sacrifice.
The person would go inside the chamber and have members of their Kin-group close the stone-slabs and openings completely, she explained, so that they were completely isolated and removed from sensory impressions. By way of such a de-activation of their sensory organs and lack of the distraction of food, they would open up even more to the Mind of the Universe and their understanding of the activities and the future of what she called the "earth-dwellers."

Subsequently, the energy of their Souls, present and forever connected to these stones, was available for those coming thereafter to visit these sacred structures. They could ask anything at all and find answers by way of this pre-fashioned direct "telephone-line" to the intelligence of Universal Mind. This would be helpful until such time that people had re-discovered and re-developed their own powers to function as divine creators again. The spirit of wisdom, Anastasia said, would always be present and available to those wanting to mentally consult with it at those sites. Anastasia, of course, has impressed many, including an astounded and stunned government team, with capacities which represent human functioning never before witnessed on this planet. Nevertheless, humble and simple as she is, she will say with irritation "I am Man," I am human and normal (vladimirmegre.com). But she has also explained that, by virtue of her unbroken and pristine ancestral lineage, and having existed by herself in the pure outdoor environment of the Siberian Taiga, her amazing yet human capacities were greatly enhanced.
In the Russian Caucasus mountains, not far from the cities of Gelendzhik, Tuapse, Novorossiysk and Sochi, she told Vladimir, he would find many examples of the Dolmens she described to him, including the one of her foremother, which was there to tell women about the powers of a breast-feeding mother who should know how to transmit the secrets of the Universal Mind straight to her infant child.
Since the publication of that book in 1997 and Anastasia's descriptions of what she felt to be the true powers of the Dolmens, tens of thousands of pilgrims have visited them. People visit there searching for numinous spiritual experiences or for inspirational feelings and revelations. Questions they may have pondered for years suddenly find answers; healings are experienced; creative potential is discovered. Some individuals start singing spontaneously, write poetry and draw wonderful pictures.
So what do they really do, these Dolmens? How can any of these experiences be confirmed?...

How to work with photographs of Dolmens.
More photos accessible here - http://www.spaceoflove.com/dolm_gal.htm
Take some time during the course of day when you can spend 20 - 30 minutes for yourself. It is better in the morning, right after awakening to prepare your spirit for the day, or evening, when you have time to think, to comprehend what’s happening, to dream about the future. So take your time and look carefully through he photos of the Dolmens. Choose one of them that appeals to you. Define precisely your problem, your purpose, the question most important for you at the moment that you wish to know, what you want to ask Dolmen about. State what you wish to change in yourself, in your life.
Greet the Spirit of the Dolmen. Close your eyes, visualize the image of chosen Dolmen in your mind. While keeping silence inside, not being distracted by extraneous thoughts, ask the question, ask the Dolmen to help you with the decision. (15-20 minutes). Having asked your question, listen inside yourself for the answer. It may seem absurd, but it will sure to come. It is better to write the answer down on a piece of paper for later understanding, to realize, to comprehend it. Having finished your work, give thanks to the Dolmen, say goodbye to it.
There is one indispensable condition when working with Dolmens – pureness of thoughts, aspirations. We wish all the best to you on your path. We are wishing Light and Love.
