Energies of stone circles, menhirs, dolmens and burial mounds

All the megalithic monuments do have a similar structure of energy. Every megalithic monuments does have it. This energystructure is the same what can be found in non-manmade cropcircles. This isn't strange, the megalithic monuments are built on cropcircles! This was part of their religion, their culture. That cropcircles aren't only from the past 100 years, prove the reports about cropcircles in far more earlier ages. Even in the days of the stoneage, cropcircles were laid down in fields. This was our conclusion after research to almost all the megalithic monuments in the Netherlands that are left over. In the Netherlands 53 dolmens still exist, but many more dolmens were built in the stoneages. In the Netherlands all the stonecircles and menhirs have been destroyed in the past 2000 years. Some of the locations of the many lost dolmens, stonecircles, and menhirs have been retraced and investigated. In Belgium we visited a part of the monuments, here two dolmens, and a little more menhirs have been left over. Also the megalithic monuments of England, and Ireland are built on cropcircles. Unfortunately we do not know anything about Woodhenge or White horses.
Strange to us were the menhirs of Brittany in France. Here the menhirs have been put in several lines next to each other. Those menhirs haven't been placed on cropcircles, but here they were raised up with attention to one (or more) energygrid of our planet.

Some of the cropcircles felt not good for them, felt negative. They wanted to change this in something positive. When their monuments were constructed, they carried out several rituals to make the place positive. Besides the rituals, the stones were very important. Together, with the stones and the rituals, it became a nice, holy place. After the building and the rituals they kept coming to these sacred sites, they kept giving worship to this place for the energies, they worshipped the energies. The cropcircles they built on did have much energy. The stones they used weren't just situated on their place, every stone had its own function. In some countries people think that the dolmens or other monuments made of stone(s) are meant to be a graveyard, but that isn't true. The original purpose of the monuments is to worship, like the church nowadays. Burial mounds are meant to be a graveyard.

The specific energies
The dolmens have a leyline through the length of the structure. Another leyline can also be found through the entrance of the dolmen. The place of the entrance is dependent on how the leyline runs through. The entrance is always situated that the leyline flows out through the entrance. Many of the megalithic monuments don't have a visible entrance, but they are still situated on leylines. When the monuments are still on the original place, they will be situated on a leycentre. The leycentres on which the monuments are, aren't always very strong. Some of them are very weak, but there is always a leycentre! Another characteristic of the megalithic monuments is that they have a benkerline run through. The builders weren't always aware of this energyline (of the benker-grid), but when a cropcircle is laid down, the place what is chosen always contained a benkerline. Under or next to the stones vortexes (also called: spirals) can be found too.
The places of the megalithic monuments are sacred sites. These sites were (and mostly still are) protected by what is called a magic circle (also called: magic rings). Just one circle is often enough, but many times their are several magic circles. These magic rings are there to protect the site from energies outside, and it also keeps the inside energy inside. A magic circle can be imagined as a sphere or dome around the sacred site. Such magic ring can be found often around the altar of cathedrals and churches too. When the church or cathedral is initiated, a ritual takes place that lies such ring around the altar. (Does anyone know more about this?)
Back to the sanctuaries/sacred sites of the stoneage. Around many megalithic monuments there have been a ring of wooden stakes or a circle of stones. Through such circle lies the magic circle. Some of the monuments have several circles of stones or wooden stakes around it, through each of them is a magic circle. Mostly the wooden rings are disappeared, but sometimes they are restored.
Burial mounds are megalithic monuments too. The originate from ages mostly after the ages of the ages of the stones. At the base of a burial mound the magic circle lies, and through this are the circle of wooden stakes. Also burial mounds with more magic circles have been found. In other ages burial mounds were built with a trench and a heightening of ground around it, see the picture (with the text of the burial mounds) on the right of two types of burial mounds. The magic circle lies in the trench and in the raising of the earth. In burial mounds also the earlier mentioned energies can be found.

Our research isn't complete,but it is just a start. Everybody looks at the megaliths from another direction. Everyone will find something else, but together we can make the picture complete.

We conclude after research that there are two reasons why they built the megalithic structures. Two reasons for each monument. They built a megalithic monument *1* to change the energies of a negative cropcircle into positive energies, and *2* to worship the energies. The energies they worshipped were only the energies of leylines, but after some time they worshipped the energies of benkerlines as well as the leylines. The discovery of the benkerlines by these people in those days made a difference. In the Netherlands we found the dolmen were they discovered the benkerlines. This was the last dolmen of the "only-leyline-worshipping-age". Here they became ware of this another energy.
These two reasons together for building do count for every megalithic monument (besides the lines of menhirs in Brittany in France), also for the burial mounds too. But for the burial mounds, there was a third reason for building them together with the first two reasons. The third reason was to bury their dead people.
Extra note: This reason does NOT count for the megalithic monuments made of stone!!!

Several types
The several types of 'stone buildings' that exist are: menhirs, stonecircles, table-dolmens (cove), 'stone-chest', dolmens with wooden stakes around it, dolmens with a stonecircle around it, and dolmens with two or more chambers. Other megalithic monuments are the burial mounds. If you have any information, please let me know: druidedruide@hotmail.com
