1398 Scot's Discovery of USA


Ninety years before Christopher Columbus "discovered" America, a Scottish Knight and an Italian Navigator explored North America with a small fleet of 12 ships. The Knight was Prince Henry Sinclair and Nicolo Zeno was the Navigator. A carving on a rock in the centre of Westford, Mass. gives us important evidence of their remarkable exploration of the New World.

Prince Henry's expedition at the time was thought to be insane.The general perception was that the Earth was flat and a fearful journey to the unchartered horizon meant a one way ticket to certain death. No one had ever returned from a journey across the Atlantic Ocean, intense speculation led to the conclusion that there must be a cliff-hanger fall off into the abyss.

Prince Henry's knowledge and ingenious intellectual skills, were greatly assisted by access to archaic maps and documents, found in Jerusalem and taken from the Holy Land to Roslin Castle by his direct relations who served their military missions under the banner of the red cross, esteemed as the Knights Templar.

The family's regard for these prized manuscripts was put into context, when, in 1447, as a ravaging fire overwhelmed the castle, the Prince's Grandson, William Sinclair, now in charge of the Sinclair's heritable property, did not oversee the safe evacuation of the woman and children, no....in his opinion there were more important issues to deal with, his ancestor's three vintage treasure chests were carefully secured and lowered to safety from the burning building.

This encounter with destiny, was to leave an everlasting impression on William Sinclair. Sir William, the chapel builder, is also the direct ancestor of the First Grand Master Mason of Scotland, also named William St Clair (Sinclair) who had a exulting sense of pride when he inherited the title. An akashic oracular time machine centred on the Sun and the Moon would be built to house the ancient library of knowledge. A modern day Solomon's Temple (itself an anagram of Sol-Sun & Mon-Moon). The source of Modern Freemasonry was to leave some figurative allegories to symbolise deeper moral truths, or spiritual meanings. Bloodlines and the inseparable D.N.A. coil symbol that today is considered conventional to portray the blood-group message, was ascribed by Sir William to pay attention in chapter 13 verse 13 to the knowledge and secrets of the 13th disciple.... Matthew's words,......

"Though seeing, they do not see;

though hearing, they do not hear or understand....."

Matthew's name in Hebrew means "Gift from God". In turn the adept Sir William named Rosslyn Chapel in commemoration and respect to Matthew and it was constituted and christened as the "Collegiate Church of St Matthew". Mathew's veneration, integrity and understanding is clearly brought out in the adrenalated sculptural form of the Master Mason's Pillar. The pillar is also referred to as the "Princes Pillar" in "An Account of the Chapel of Roslin (1778)." On the architrave adjoining the pillar, there is the inscription Forte est vinum fortior est rex fortiores sunt mulieres super omnia vincit veritas: "Wine is strong, a king is stronger, women are stronger still, but TRUTH conquers all" (1 Esdras, chapters 3 & 4)


Prompted by divine influence and inspired by ancient scriptures, William's covenant was to include all aspects of the same in his masterpiece, his roof design is an awe inspiring vaulted, treasure-chest roof-lid that has 215 stars and flowers skilfully sculptured into the ceiling. If we consider the half barrel roof as representational of 1/12 or 2160 years indicating the transition from one zodiacal symbol to the next in the precession of the equinoxes 2160 year period on our orbit round the 25920 years great zodiac precession. First detected by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus in about 130BC from the apparent increase in the observed celestial longitudes of stars. It amounts to about 50″.3 per year. Hence the equinoxes move westwards on the celestial sphere by 1 ° in about 72 years, when we calculate the full circle by multiplying 72 x 360 degrees it = 25920 which in turn takes 25 920 years to complete one circuit.

The great masonic seal, as seen on the dollar, with the all seeing eye on top of the truncated pyramid has 72 blocks which represents the degrees of perceived time, in the great precession of the equinoxes.


The Westford Carving provides one of the sparse bits of evidence of Prince Henry's exploration of America. Other testimony includes the Zeno Maps, the narrative written by Zeno, the Micmac legends, and the unique cannon found in Guysborough Harbour.


Further proof of a North American visit can be found in the stone carvings in Roslin Chapel. Representations of native American maize plants ornament the M curved arches, while other carvings include the healing aloe cactus.


Henry Sinclair was born and raised at Roslin Castle. His father was William Sinclair who died in Lithuania, on crusade with the Teutonic Knights. At the age of 24 Henry became the Earl of Orkney, an earldom which extended throughout the islands of Orkney and included Caithness. Coincidentally Orkney is the most northerly point of the Scottish Roseline. By the time he was 35 he had built a fleet larger than Norway's entire navy. As navigators he was fortunate to obtain the services of Antonio and Nicola Zeno whose father was Admiral Carlo 'The Lion' of Venice, famed for saving that Italian City. Setting out from Orkney with a fleet of 13 vessels and 100 men, they followed Zeno's map across the sea to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Theirs was a voyage of exploration and settlement. They weren't conquistadores as were many other explorers. Instead, they were welcomed by the Micmac Native Americans. During a winter season they lived peaceably among the Micmac Indians before Zeno returned to Orkney, while Sinclair explored further southward, along the Massachusetts coastline.


Pictured above is the Micmac River where the fleet sailed in and met the Native Americans.

Seeing smoke rising, a group of the explorers marched inland to Prospect Hill to get a better view. Along the way, Sir James Gunn, Sinclair's lifelong friend, died. In his memory, they carved his effigy in a rock ledge. It consisted of many punched holes, outlining the dead Knight. Archaeological experts have confirmed that the holes were punched 600 years ago! The effigy contains elements known only at that time to Northern Europeans. The sword and the shield trace solely to Prince Henry Sinclair and the Gunn Family.






The "History of the Town of Westford" by Rev. R Hodgman, published in 1883, describes the presence of markings on the ledge. It is said the rude outlines of the human face have been traced upon it, and the figure is said to be the work of Indians."


Willaim B Goodwin, an insurance executive who was obsessed with his interest in archaeology, and Malcolm Pearson, photographer, published a description of the carvings.


Frank Glynn, president of the Connecticut Archaeology Society, thought the sword was of viking origin. T.C Lethbridge, curator of the University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology in England, identified the sword as "a large, hand-and-a-half wheel pommel sword of the fourteenth century type." Further he suggested that the arms armour and heraldic emblems were a kin to the first Sinclair Earl of Orkney.


Frederick J. Pohl, student of pre-columbian exploration and writer, made a thorough study of life and travels of the Earl of Orkney, including the carving. He published his findings in "Prince Henry Sinclair, his Expedition to the new World in 1398."


Allister MacDougall, the Town Historian of Westford, erected a granite monument beside the carving.


Marianna Lines, under contract of Niven Sinclair, made a cloth rubbing of the Westford Knight Carving which revealed more detail than previously seen.

oh FMH very interesting
So are we talking about the Roseline

Did You ever read that I found a compass like structure at Rosslyn Chapel?

You see it from the outside up at the roof


so I can see the importance of the four markers and four angels and the compass

With these signs you will vanquish him
It is the circle or the square or both
at Rosslyn they circled the square which a compass does

Everything is Connected and there are no

[editar] Simbología cristiana

Para el cristianismo evangélico, el Arca significa la Presencia misma de Dios entre su pueblo. Los querubines simpre aparecen en la biblia como guardianes que cuidan lo que Yahveh les encomienda, una de esas prohibiciones es que el humano se acerque a Dios. Pero en el Arca se ve cómo los querubines están inclinados ante la tapa que contiene la sangre depositada por el sumo sacerdote; esto significa que cuando los querubines ven la sangre que cubre el Arca, se inclinan y permiten el paso a la Presencia de Dios, es decir, el cristiano que está cubierto simbólicamente por la sangre del sacrificio de Jesucristo, tiene libre acceso al Padre. También está presente igualmente como objeto sagrado en la religión de la Iglesia ortodoxa etíope; y para los cristianos católicos romanos se simboliza místicamente a través de la Virgen María. Para los cristianos existe un episodio especial durante la muerte de Jesús en la cruz del Calvario, cuando el enorme velo del templo se rasgó por la mitad. Su significado; El Lugar Santísimo estaría de ese momento en adelante, accesible para todo aquel que quisiese acercarse a la Presencia de Dios, la antigua alianza ya no tenía valor según la segunda carta a los corintios 3:14 puesto que Él,EL CORDERO SANTISIMO había derramado su sangre una vez y para siempre, y había hecho de los suyos sacerdotes de Dios.

[editar] Historia del Arca

Moisés y Josué postrados ante el Arca.
David llevando el Arca a Jerusalén.

La Biblia indica que el Arca fue mandada construir por Moisés y su diseño ordenado según Dios lo había dispuesto; fue usada en la conquista de Canaán y con ella Josué consiguió abrirse paso en las aguas del Jordán al contacto de éstas con el Arca, y durante siete días fue paseada en torno de Jericó, que cayó luego en poder de dicho caudillo.

El Arca fue fijada en Silo. Durante la época de Elí y Samuel, sucedió uno de los episodios más impresionantes del que se cuenta acerca del Arca de Dios. Durante una cruenta guerra contra los filisteos fue llevada al campamento israelita con el objeto de levantar la moral de los guerreros. Pero después de una trágica derrota del pueblo hebreo, donde también murieron los dos hijos del juez y sacerdote israelita Elí, los filisteos la tomaron como un valiosísimo trofeo, dando lugar a un verdadero luto en todo el país de Israel. En poder de aquellos estuvo unos meses, aconteciendo que desde el momento que fue llevada al templo de la gigantesca estatua del dios Dagón en Asdod, éste quedó dos noches consecutivas postrado delante del Arca, sólo que la segunda vez decapitado y sin las manos, a lo que siguió una ola de estragos, desastres y plagas azotando todo aquel país. Los filisteos, horrorizados por aquellos sucesos, habían dejado que el Arca fuese sola en un carro tirado por dos vacas. Después los animales pararon en Bethsames: varios habitantes de aquel lugar murieron por el trato poco reverente que dieron al objeto sagrado.

De allí fue trasladada a Gabaá. Luego Saúl la habría utilizado en la campaña contra los filisteos. Posteriormente David con un acompañamiento solemne la habría trasladado a Sión. Sin embargo, de camino a Sión había ocurrido un accidente: Uza, un encargado del Arca, quiso sostenerla en un momento de bamboleo y cayó muerto de repente. David atemorizado la dejó durante 3 meses en casa de Obededom. Seguidamente, desde Sión la reliquia fue instalada en el majestuoso templo de Salomón en tiempos de su reinado en Jerusalén.

Luego, desde que Nabucodonosor, rey de Babilonia, invadió Jerusalén, destruyendo el templo y saqueando todos los objetos valiosos del mismo, el Arca previsoriamente fue llevada y colocada en un lugar seguro y secreto antes de la invasión y posterior deportación de los judíos. Precisamente -en ese tiempo de la destrucción del Templo- Jeremías es el profeta ungido responsable de hablar. Según el registro de los Macabeos, Jeremías tomó el Arca -lo cual representaba el trono de Dios- para ocultarla en el Monte Nebo:

Leamos en 2 Macabeos 2:4-8 (este libro solo aparece en la biblia con el canon alejandrino)

"El profeta, después de una revelación, mandó llevar consigo la Tienda y el Arca; y cómo salió hacia el monte donde Moisés había subido para contemplar la heredad de Dios. Y cuando llegó Jeremías, encontró una estancia en forma de cueva; allí metió la Tienda, el Arca y el altar del incienso, y tapó la entrada. Volvieron algunos de sus acompañantes para marcar el camino, pero no pudieron encontrarlo. En cuanto Jeremías lo supo, les reprendió diciéndoles: "Este lugar quedará desconocido hasta que Dios vuelva a reunir a su pueblo y le sea propicio. El Señor entonces mostrará todo esto; y aparecerá la gloria del Señor y la Nube, como se mostraba en tiempo de Moisés, cuando Salomón rogó que el Lugar fuera solemnemente consagrado".

Jeremías diría que esa Arca, el antiguo "trono de Dios", perdería importancia espiritual y sería sustituída por la presencia de Dios entre su pueblo:

"Y sucederá que en aquellos días... -declara el SEÑOR- no se dirá más: "Arca del pacto del SEÑOR"; no les vendrá a la mente ni la recordarán, no la echarán de menos ni será hecha de nuevo. En aquel tiempo llamarán a Jerusalén: "Trono del SEÑOR"; y todas las naciones acudirán a ella, a Jerusalén, a causa del nombre del SEÑOR; y no andarán más tras la terquedad de su malvado corazón." (Jeremías 3:16-17)

"Y el templo de Dios fue abierto en el cielo, y el arca de su pacto se veía en el templo. Y hubo relámpagos, voces, truenos, un terremoto y gran granizo." (Revelación/Apocalipsis 11:19)

[editar] Ubicación actual del Arca

Actualmente existen diversas teorías sobre la ubicación actual del Arca de la Alianza. Entre ellas destacan las tres más conocidas, las cuales se citan a continuación:

[editar] Oculta en el Monte Nebo

El Libro II de los Macabeos, cap. 2, ver. 4-10), contiene referencia de unos escritos que mencionan que el profeta Jeremías siendo advertido por Hashem(Di-s)" antes de la invasión babilónica, movió el Arca desde el Templo, y la hizo enterrar en una cueva del Monte Nebo.

En este sentido, cabe mencionar que, a partir de esta ubicación, existen numerosas teorías o historias "no probadas" y sin fundamento serio, que postulan que posiblemente habría sido encontrada e incluso posiblemente llevada a algún otro lugar, el cual depende de la versión de cada teoría o historia.

[editar] Llevada a Zimbabue

La tribu africana Lemba, la cual presume de ascendencia israelita,[cita requerida] ha afirmado en sus tradiciones que sus antepasados, cuando llegaron al sur de África, trajeron consigo una reliquia sagrada llamada Ngoma lungundu o "la voz de Dios", la cual estuvo un tiempo escondida en una cueva profunda en las montañas Dumghe, su hogar espiritual hasta que fue llevada a un museo, donde se encuentra actualmente.[1] [2] [3]

A partir de ello, el investigador Tudor Parfitt, que tiene un enfoque literalista de la historia bíblica, postula en su investigación que el Ngoma lungundu está relacionada con el Arca. Su hipótesis se basa en que el objeto descrito por el pueblo Lemba posee atributos similares al Arca, tales como que el Ngoma lungundu es de tamaño parecido, que fue trasladado sólo por los sacerdotes, que no se le permitió tocar el suelo, que fue venerado como una voz de su Dios, o que se utilizó como un arma de gran poder.

Parfitt analizó este artefacto con radio-carbono, datándolo en una fecha aproximada al año 1350, lo que coincidió con el repentino final de la Gran Zimbabue.[4] Parfitt sugiere que la Ngoma lungundu que se encontró, es la descendiente de la Bíblica Arca, y que ésta fue reconstruida a través de la historia. Parfitt ofrece la sugerencia de que el Arca bíblica, al igual que la Ngoma lungundu, era una estructura de madera cubierta con un pedazo de cuero, y que siempre ha sido un tambor, así como un arma de algún tipo, al igual que el Ngoma. Sin embargo, esta última hipótesis es rechazada por otros arqueólogos e historiadores, al no poder ser probada.

[editar] Guardada en una iglesia de Etiopía

En 1989, un periodista británico, Graham Hancock, aseguró que la legendaria Arca Perdida no se encontraba perdida sino a salvo en un templo de Etiopía. Posteriormente han aparecido pruebas arqueológicas que han sustentado esta teoría. Esta teoría se basa en relatos pertenecientes a la iglesia cristiana Copta en Etiopía, que indican que el Arca de la Alianza habría sido trasladada secretamente hacía más de 1000 años. (650 a.c.).

Capilla de las Tablas en la Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Sion, que alberga, según la tradición de Etiopía, el Arca de la Alianza.
Modelo 3d del arca de la Alianza. basado en el boceto del Dr. J.O. Kinnaman.
Detalle de la guirnalda que adorna la tapa.

Cuenta el libro sagrado de Etiopía, el Kebra Nagast, que en tiempos de Salomón, la Reina de Saba visitó Jerusalén atraída por la sabiduría de su Rey. La Reina de Saba comenzó a ejercer una irresistible atracción sobre el hijo de David, quien pese a sus riquezas e inteligencia no lograba seducir a la bella soberana. Llegaba la hora de su partida a Saba y Salomón consiguió arrancarle una promesa: que en el caso de que se llevase consigo algún bien preciado del reino, consentiría a cambio yacer con él una sola noche. La víspera del viaje, Salomón ofreció a su invitada una cena de exquisitos manjares. Astutamente ordenó que se sazonaran con abundante sal y picantes especias. Tras los postres, la reina tuvo que beber abundante agua para calmar la sed. ¡Qué bien es el más preciado sino el agua! Rota la promesa, la reina de Saba cumplió y de aquella única unión nació Menelik I, futuro rey de Etiopía. Relatos indican que años más tarde el joven Menelik fue enviado para recibir educación a casa de su padre en Jerusalén. Pocos años después, a pesar de los esfuerzos de Salomón para que su hijo se quedara, Menelik regresó a Etiopía. La tradición cuenta que, seducido por sus ayudantes, se llevó consigo el Arca (algunas teorías postulan que para poder llevarse el arca existió un posible cambio del arca original por el de una copia del arca que Menelik debía llevarse; siendo posiblemente que esa copia sea el arca que se dice fue ocultada en Jordania; otras teorías, en cambio, postulan la posible existencia de dos arcas originales o que tenían la misma importancia, en donde en cada una se guardó posiblemente una de las Tablas de la Ley, siendo una de ellas la que fue llevada a Etiopía).

Posteriormente los relatos indican que permaneció primeramente en un templo en la isla de Elefantina cerca del río Nilo. Luego se relata cómo el Arca de la Alianza habría sido colocada en una especie de tabernáculo en la isla de Tana Cherkos (Tana Kirkos), ubicada en el lago Tana (lago Tano), donde permaneció durante 800 años.

Los relatos señalan que pasado estos 800 años, el rey Ezana de Etiopía decidió trasladar el arca a Axum, siendo finalmente guardada en la Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Sion. Según los etíopes, es el lugar en donde hasta hoy en día aún permanece y es cuidada por un sacerdote. Este sacerdote, según sus tradiciones, sería un descendiente de uno de los levitas, quienes ayudaban a trasladar y cuidar el Arca en sus viajes. Este sacerdote es la única persona a quien se le permite ver el Arca de la Alianza guardada en la iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Sion, al igual que ocurría con los levitas según la tradición judía; es por ello que no se ha podido ratificar su permanencia real en esta iglesia, aunque todas las pruebas arqueológicas indicarían que esta teoría sería auténtica.[cita requerida] Entre las variadas pruebas arqueológicas, hay reliquias pertenecientes al pueblo judío de la época del arca, y que pertenecerían al templo de Jerusalén.[cita requerida]

Esta última teoría además se sustenta en que extrañamente el Arca es el punto central del culto y la adoración cristiana en Etiopía: cada uno de los 20.000 templos de Etiopía contiene una réplica del Arca de la Alianza. El libro sagrado de Etiopía, el Kebra Nagast cuenta la historia del traslado del Arca, gracias a Menelik I. Cuando el Rey Salomón se dio cuenta del robo pensó en enviar un ejército a perseguir a su hijo, pero él también soñó que era la voluntad de Dios y mantuvo la desaparición del Arca en secreto. La versión respecto a Makeda y Salomón, en la tradición judío ortodoxa de la falasha de Etiopía, es prácticamente idéntica a la del Kebre Negest. A pesar de ser una historia desestimada por los historiadores occidentales, los etíopes la aceptan sin dudar. Están convencidos que el Arca original fue llevada a Axum en el primer milenio antes de Cristo y que permanece ahí desde entonces.

Recientemente, el Abuna de Etiopía (Iglesia ortodoxa etíope) afirma haber visto el Arca de la Alianza[5]

[editar] Escondida en el Pozo del Dinero en la Isla del Roble

Una teoría (de la que no hay muchas pruebas) asegura que después de la Tercera Cruzada, los Caballeros Templarios (lo más probable es que haya sido un grupo francés de esta orden) se la habrían llevado a Escocia, donde la familia noble Sinclair, los habría ayudado a llevarla a un lugar más alejado y por tanto más seguro. Este lugar sería una isla cerca de Nueva Escocia llamada Isla del Roble o Oak Island (en inglés). En esa isla se encuentra un pozo, apodado el pozo del dinero, famoso por la inaccesibilidad de su fondo (donde podrían encontrarse variadas cosas, desde los manuscritos originales de William Shakespeare, las joyas de María Antonieta, el Santo Grial, un tesoro de Barbanegra o, como plantea esta teoría, el Arca de la Alianza) y el misterio que lo rodea, ya que nadie sabe con certeza quién lo construyó o cuándo, aunque se propone que fueron integrantes de la flota naval francesa, cosa que sería viable dada la gran influencia templaria en esa zona (siendo una de las principales pruebas, que el último caballero templario de la historia Jacques de Molay , fuera francés).

    La Piedra del Destino y las Joyas de la Corona


    En la actualidad, estos dos tesoros se muestran en una sala del Castillo de Edimburgo.

    (La Piedra del Destino y las joyas de la Corona)

    La Piedra del Destino, es un bloque de piedra arenisca, que era utilizado en la Edad Media para las coronaciones de los reyes escoceses, y se colocaba debajo del trono de cada rey en dichas ceremonias.
    El lugar de las coronaciones y donde permanecía esta piedra era en la Abadía de Scone (cercanías de Perth) desde el siglo XII. En la actualidad no queda rastro de esta edificación, pero en ese mismo lugar ahora se encuentra el Palacio de Scone

    Pero en el año 1296 Eduardo I de Inglaterra se hace con la Piedra del Destino, dejándola en la Abadía de Westminster, y usándose en todas las coronaciones de los siguientes reyes ingleses, y siendo testigo de la última coronación, la de Isabel II en 1953.
    Pero en 1996, es decir 700 años después, el Gobierno accedió a entregarle a los escoceses dicha piedra en el Castillo de Edimburgo, con la condición de que se pueda llevar de vuelta a Londres en las siguientes coronaciones.

    Las joyas de la Corona escocesa incluyen la corona, la espada del estado y el cetro y son las joyas reales más antiguas de la cristiandad.

    La corona de Escocia está hecha de oro y decorada con diamantes, amatistas y granates.


    El cetro es de plata dorada y está rematado con una esfera de cristal de roca.

    (Simil del cetro que hay en otra sala del castillo)

    La espada del estado, la vaina y el cinto están decorados con las armas del Papa Julio II

    Es el 30 de noviembre de 1996. Más de doce mil personas se arremolinan junto al castillo de Edimburgo para ver a una comitiva formada por altos dignatarios políticos y religiosos. Las tropas militares que los acompañan parecen escoltar un curioso tesoro. Se retira la enseña de San Patricio (la bandera nacional escocesa) y se iza la bandera inglesa, con motivo de la entrada del príncipe Andrés, que representa a la reina Isabel II. Luego tiene lugar una breve ceremonia en la que el reverendo escocés John MacIndoe acepta formalmente el tesoro de manos de Michael Forsyth, secretario británico para la nación escocesa.

    En contra de lo que pudiera parecer a simple vista, observando el enorme despliegue de seguridad y los relevantes personajes presentes en la ceremonia, el tesoro no consiste en valiosas joyas ni en objetos de oro o cosa por el estilo, no! Se trata, simplemente, de una antigua piedra. Pero su valor supera con creces al del más fabuloso botín con que pudiera soñar un emperador. Es una piedra perteneciente a la realeza escocesa y recibe diversos nombres. La Piedra del Destino, la Almohada de Jacob, Lia-Fail, la Piedra de Scone, etc.

    Fue robada por los ingleses en 1246 y utilizada durante casi siete siglos en sus ceremonias de coronación real, pese a las airadas peticiones de los escoceses, que clamaban por su devolución. Hasta hace poco se encontraba en la capilla de San Andrés, bajo la silla del trono inglés, en la abadía de Westminster (Londres). La importancia de la Piedra reside en una leyenda que asegura el poder divino, o casi mágico de quien la posee. Pero ¿de dónde procede este enigmático símbolo mágico?


    En la Biblia (Génesis 28,10-15) encontramos la primera pista: «Jacob se dirigía a Haran. Llegado a cierto lugar, pasó allí la noche. Ytomando una de las piedras del lugar, se la puso por cabezal y se acostó en aquel sitio. Y tuvo un sueño: vio Jacob una escalera que se apoyaba en la tierra y cuya cima tocaba el cielo; y los ángeles de Dios subían y bajaban por ella. Sobre ella estaba Yahvé, que le dijo a Jacob: Yo soy Yavhé, el Dios de tu padre Abraham. La tierra en la que estás acostado te la daré a ti y a tu descendencia; ésta será como el polvo de la tierra, te extenderás hacia el Oriente y el Occidente y en ti y en tu descendencia serán benditas todas las tribus de la Tierra. Cuando Jacob despertó, tomó la piedra y la erigió en un monumento.... Llamó a aquel lugar Betel (Ciudad de la Luz).

    Posteriormente, Jacob y los suyos marcharon a Egipto, donde cedieron la Piedra a José. En 1453 a. de C., se produjo el Exodo desde el Valle del Nilo hacia la Tierra Prometida bajo la dirección de Moisés, quien llevó consigo la Piedra y otros tesoros. Durante la travesía del desierto, la extraña roca dio muestras de sus propiedades mágicas cuando, tras golpearla Moisés con un bastón, brotó agua de su interior. Años después, el misterioso símbolo pétreo llegó a Canaán, donde durante 800 años fue utilizado para la coronación de los reyes de Israel. También sirvió de pedestal para el Arca de la Alianza, que se encontraba en el Templo de Salomón, en Jerusalén.

    En el año 602 a.C., el monarca babilonio Nabuconodosor invadió Jerusalén, profanó el templo y mató a Zedekías, rey de Israel. El profeta Jeremías, que era descendiente directo de Jacob, tomó a las dos hijas de Zedekías y algunos tesoros del templo, incluida la Piedra del Destino, y huyó a Egipto. Desde allí comenzó Jeremías su peregrinar a través del Mediterráneo, llevando consigo la Piedra y a toda su gente. Las tradiciones de Irlanda aluden a la llegada a sus tierras de un monje llamado Eremhon, que podría ser Jeremías, y de un personaje  llamado Breagh, tal vez Simón Brec, que lideraban la expedición que transportaba la Piedra, la cual fue bautizada con el nombre de Lia-Fail (Piedra que habla). Desde entonces, los reyes irlandeses fueron coronados sobre la mágica roca en la colina de Tara.

    La dinastía de reyes irlandeses continuó durante más de 1040 años hasta que Fergus, se llevó la Piedra del Destino a Escocia en el año 498 d.C., autoproclamándose primer rey de ese país. Desde entonces la Piedra estuvo en la abadía de Scone (Perthshire) y allí fueron coronados los reyes escoceses durante más de 700 años. En 1292 se utilizó la Piedra del Destino por última vez, pues cuatro años después fue robada por Eduardo I de Inglaterra, quien la trasladó a la abadía de Westminster. Desde entonces, permaneció bajo la silla de coronación real inglesa.


    La Piedra del Destino está hecha de arenisca amarilla, pesa unas 310 libras (152 kilos) y tiene una cruz latina grabada recientemente, además de unas marcas esculpidas con cincel en una cara. En su parte superior hay una ancha grieta, originada sin duda por el método usado para transportarla y que consistía en unas varas de madera que pasaban por los anillos de hierro que sobresalen de cada extremo de la roca. Respecto a la importancia que la familia real inglesa otorga a esta Piedra, es bien sabido que, cuando la Luftwaffe alemana bombardó Londres durante la II Guerra Mundial, se estableció un plan de emergencia para asegurar la reliquia. De su custodia se encargó un grupo secreto de diez hombres dirigidos por el Primer Ministro.... Ni siquiera para proteger las joyas de la Corona se había organizado un proyecto de esta envergadura.

    El profesor Harold Totten, catedrático de Ciencias de la Universidad de Yale, ha concluido que la razón por la que este objeto es fundamental en la monarquía escocesa, más que por la tradición que habla del sueño de Jacob, es porque los reyes están convencidos que la Enigmática y Misteriosa Piedra del Destino, posee poderes mágicos que a los soberanos les da sabiduría, riqueza y salud!....

    "The Earth lifts its glass to the sun
    And light–light is poured.
    A bird comes and sits on a crystal rim
    And from my forest cove I hear singing.
    ….An emerald bird rises from inside me
    And now sits upon the Beloved’s glass.
    I have left that dark cave forever.
    My body has blended with His.
    I lay my wing as a bridge to you
    So that you can join us singing."

    ‘The Crystal Rim’ from ‘The Gift–Poems by Hafiz’
    translated by Daniel Ladinsky

    Like pearls from an ancient lover’s gift, Magdalene sites and legends lie cast across a vast expanse, reaching from Ethiopia, Palestine, Egypt, France and north to the highlands and isles of Scotland. Crumbling chapel ruins, great Gothic cathedrals, caves, symbols carved in stone, and stories of her coming and going remain like fragments of an old story necklace, waiting and waiting and still waiting to be found.

    Magdalene can currently be seen rising out of a long, imposed sleep. Like the story of Sleeping Beauty, she and her people have been ‘drugged’ into unconsciousness for two thousand years, by an extraordinary effort to suppress ‘the other half of the story’, Her story. From the moment that Peter’s Church formed the ‘rock’ and foundation of Christianity, she was written out of accepted doctrine, save for references to her as sinner, a woman from whom seven devils were removed by Jesus, and the one who dried the sweat on his body with her long hair. Peter’s religious authority stemmed from the church’s acceptance that he was the first disciple to see Jesus appear after the crucifixion. Yet, three of the gospels claim that Magdalene was the first to see him in the Garden. The sacred Grail pattern, that requires presence of the feminine, was severed at the core during the founding of the Church, yet the pieces are revealing themselves to any who choose to awaken.

    The Re-emergence of The Magdalene

    "Mary is rising…she is rising to her heights…
    Our Mary will not be cast down and bound up…
    and neither will her daughters.
    We will rise, Daughters. We…will…rise."

    ‘The Secret Life of Bees’ by Sue Monk Kidd:

    One of many recent dramatic appearances from Mary Magdalene is ‘Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci’ , the ABC Primetime news show that has people buzzing nationwide. The show that first aired on November 3rd, looks at the questions of the true relationship between Magdalene and Jesus as companions and possible intimates. The film acknowledges her status as ‘the Apostle of the Apostles’, not the penitent prostitute that has been her ‘scarlet letter’ for two thousand years. Also presented is the symbolism in ‘The Last Supper ‘ painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, and his portrayal of Magdalene sitting at the right side of Christ, their two body positions forming a ‘V’, a feminine symbol and a chalice. Here are two excerpts from the ABC network show:

    "There's no factual basis for that longstanding tradition
    that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute, a woman of ill repute….
    Mary Magdalene is one of the greatest saints in the history of the church."

    Rev. Richard McBrien PhD, of Notre Dame University.

    (Magdalene’s designation as prostitute was
    officially reversed by the Catholic Church in 1969).

    "I think it's entirely plausible to think that Jesus may have been married.
    It was a normal practice for Jewish men.
    It would also be normal not to mention that he had a wife."

    Karen King, Harvard University Professor

    I was struck by my granddaughter’s epiphany as she watched the program, realizing that if Jesus and Magdalene really did have children, she herself might actually be carrying that same bloodline. That is quite a different legacy than thinking we are ‘less than’ or even worse, ‘sinners’!


    "From the beginning, her view has been ignored, unappreciated.
    Yet she remains. She cannot be

    Time Magazine Aug. 11, 2003.

    Other recent appearances include a feature article on Mary Magdalene in the August 11, 2003 issue of Time Magazine, and the popular novel, ‘The Da Vinci Code’, by Dan Brown, still scoring high on the New York Times bestseller list, along with numerous other Magdalene books released this year–all indicating her potent matrix is weaving its way back into our psyches. Through film, literature, revealed documents, and a growing interest in her story, Magdalene is finally rising from the hidden caves of our unconscious. She is re-emerging out of two thousand years of denial, banishment and a mistaken identity, to realize the fulfillment of a sacred trust, the blueprint for love and sacred union.

    The Grail Romances and Medieval Madonnas

    Why all this sudden emergence of her story now? I believe she is calling us to reclaim the sovereignty and emancipation of the human soul, at this beginning of the second millennium and a crucial turning point for Earth. During the first two centuries of the first millennium, 1000-1300 AD, it was an earlier cycle of change and radical breakthroughs, filled with fresh new idealism, a renaissance of spirituality and time of the Christian Crusades. Passionate expressions of artistic flowering, rising ideals of romance, individual freedoms, and women’s equality spread like fire across Christian Europe. This was the period of the writing and popularity of the Grail Romances, Courtly Love, the song and story ministry of the Troubadours, formation of the Knights Templar, guardians of the Grail and Magdalene mysteries, and the devout order called the Cathars (from the Greek ‘Katharos’ meaning pure) protectors of the Grail legacy and the sacred union of Jesus and Magdalene.

    It is important to mention here Eleanor of Aquitaine, who was a High Middle-Ages one-woman revival show. Her passionate support of the arts, romantic love and women’s freedom, fueled significant change as well as incurring for herself many ‘Magdalene’ labels. She was the only woman to be Queen of two countries with her marriages first to King Louis VII of France and then King Henry II of England, by whom she gave birth to Richard the Lionhearted. Eleanor personally traveled to Jerusalem during the second Crusade and had close dealings with the Cathars and Knights Templar. It was Eleanor’s daughter Marie de Troyes, who was instrumental in the completion of Chretien de Troyes’ Grail Romance, Le Conte du Graal (1190 AD), the earliest known grail story in writing. Aquitaine, France was a hotspot for the Troubadours of Courtly Love and Eleanor and Marie created the controversial Tractus de Amore et de Amoris Remedia (Treatise on Love and the Remedies of Love), including 31 codes of romantic conduct for educating her male subjects in the romantic requirements of the newly emancipated women.

    During this same period, there was a sudden rising interest in the schools of Hermetic and Egyptian secret alchemical knowledge. It was also in this era that several hundred Black Madonnas were placed in chapels and cathedrals reaching beyond Medieval Europe to the east into Russia, and north to Britain. Ean Begg, author of ‘The Cult of the Black Virgin’, says that many of these Black Virgins were brought out of the near east by the Knights Templar. Author Lynn Picknett (‘Mary Magdalene’ and ‘The Templar Revelation’), feels that Magdalene may have even come from Ethiopia, a dark-skinned, powerful and wealthy queen. These dark-colored mother and child images are often associated with Isis and Magdalene cults, the dark Mother Goddess nourishing her children, and associated with the hidden mysteries of the sacred marriage or Hieros Gammos and the alchemy of high sexual magic. Similar ‘madonna’ images can be seen in Egyptian temple scenes with Horus at the breast of his mother Isis.

    Between 1100-1300 AD hundreds of Gothic Cathedrals were constructed, fired by the mystical visions of St. Bernard of Clairvaux and his close involvement with the Crusades and the formation of Order of Knights Templar. It was St. Bernard who wrote the first Templars’ Rule, during their formation in Jerusalem in about 1118 AD and played a key role in their official papal recognition at the council of Troyes in 1129 AD. (More on the Templars later). Templar symbols are found carved in these Gothic edifices, a rare fusion of Pagan and Christian roots, alluding to the alchemical sciences of sacred geometry, sound, astrology, genetics and the technology of transformation. These great Gothic cathedrals, such as the ones at Chartres, Notre Dame in Paris, Salisbury, St.Denis, and Cluny were dedicated to Notre Dame, Our Lady, thought originally to be Magdalene. Most were also home to the Black Madonnas.

    "The huge number of Gothic cathedrals that were erected, as graceful and sublime as if they were designed in heaven, have yet to be surpassed for their dignity and spiritual potency, almost a thousand years later."
    ‘Dance of the Dragon’ by Paul Broadhurst and Hamish Miller

    (The authors discovered many of these cathedrals are located on a major energy grid they call ‘The Apollo- St. Michael axis’, and stretches from Britain’s St. Michael’s Mount to Mt. Carmel)

    The sacred architecture employed in these majestic structures reflected a new ‘alchemical light and specific acoustical properties’, according to ‘Dance of the Dragon’ authors, that was conducive to the constant rounds of perpetual choirs maintained by the monks. Interestingly, it is precisely at these millennium shifts, when perpetual chanting becomes a device of the collective creative intention. Sacred music and chant is always with us, but surges in its necessary popularity at these crucial turning points, as during the inception of Christianity in the first century AD, during the beginning of the first millennium, and now as we forge a new paradigm and write our ‘script’ for the next one thousand years.

    If we read between the historical lines, a pattern can be seen here, with an inner circle of key players stirring the pot of change. These courageous and inspired pioneers of the Spirit were laying the foundation for a future second millennium renaissance. Now is the time for us to remember the true story of our tribal myth, a story that embraces the Holy Grail of union, love and beauty–a story that calls us to become empowered, whole and fully human.

    Magdalene As Jesus’ Initiatrix

    …the sacred union of Jesus and his Bride once formed the cornerstone of Christianity….the blueprint of the Sacred Marriage, that the later (church)builders rejected, causing a disastrous flaw in Christian doctrine that has warped Western civilization for nearly two millennia."
    Margaret Starbird, The Goddess in the Gospels

    Let us look at the following significant transition or initiation points in Jesus’ life that indicate Mary Magdalene was not only present, but was the one who performed the most important ancient rituals, or rites of passage for Jesus. These rites would have been performed only by one initiated into the deeper mysteries, one who would have commanded a key position in the unfolding drama:
    • Magdalene anoints Jesus with her alabaster jar of spikenard prior to his being captured and crucified, seeming to know the overall plan before it was clear to the other disciples. The following excerpt from Solomon’s Song of Songs, 1:12, implies that Magdalene was following a much more ancient ritual tradition in which the Bridegroom, or King is anointed by the Bride or High Priestess and this rite most likely even predates the passionate love poems of Solomon and Sheeba.

    ‘While the king sat at his table,
    My spikenard sent forth its fragrance.
    My beloved is unto me as a bundle of myrrh,
    That lieth betwixt my breasts.’

    • The Magdalene is present, along with Jesus’ mother Mary, the disciple Salome, and John the Beloved at the cross, when the other disciples were in hiding--too overcome with grief and fear to even appear! (According to Magdalene/Templar historian and author Lynn Picknett, when Magdalene goes back to find the male disciples and rally them out of their fear and total hopelessness after the crucifixion, she actually gave the church to Peter, although as the companion of Jesus, the ministry should have reverted to her!)

    "Peter, I’ll tell you not only what you don’t know,
    but what he kept from you."

    Elaine Pagels quoting Magdalene from the
    Nag Hammadi Gospels on ABC’s ‘Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci’
    • Magdalene and Mary the mother anoint Jesus’ body with specific unguents, ones known to alchemically aid in Christ’s after-death journey, and then wrap his body in linen in preparation for burial….certainly a task only to be entrusted to the ones closest to him.
    • In three of the Gospels, Magdalene is the first one that Jesus appears to after the crucifixion. Jesus then says, ‘Noli mi tangere’, or ‘do not cling to me’, and as Margaret Starbird comments, the Greek translation of tangere, meaning ‘cling’ implies a more intimate relationship between them, rather than the Latin to ‘touch’.
    • According to the ‘Pistis Sophia, a Gnostic text in which Jesus makes a grand reappearance after the crucifixion and teaches the disciples deeper inner mysteries, it is Magdalene’s presence which dominates this dialogue with Jesus, and both her questions and answers indicate an ‘Apostle who knew the All’.

    ‘Mariham (Magdalene),this whom I shall complete in all the mysteries of the things of the Height. Speak in Boldness, because thou art she whose heart straineth toward the Kingdom of the heavens more than all thy brothers…you who will give light upon everything in accuracy and in exactness.’
    Spoken by Jesus, from the Pistis Sophia texts,
    quoted in the book Mary Magdalene by Susan Haskins.

    Here is a woman who definitely did not play a minor or casual role either during or after the life of Jesus. Although the historical documentation that refers to Magdalene following the crucifixion is interwoven with legend and myth, many scholars say that its quite possible that she had been married to Jesus. According to her devout heretical followers the Cathars of southern France, they were unmarried lovers.

    It appears that Magdalene continued the ministry that embraced the original purpose of Christianity in the years following the crucifixion. There are records of her having preached her message on the steps of the Temple at Marseilles dedicated to the Goddess Diana, and that she had a strong following in southern France. Legends of her escape from Palestine to Egypt, France and a further journey to Great Britain include her bearing the children of Jesus, being the fiqure-head of the Magdalene-Isisian Mystery Schools, and her retreating into the deep caverns of France and the areas around Rennes le Chateau, Rennes les Bains, and even into Glastonbury, England, the coast of Wales, Edinburgh, Scotland, and the Isles of Mull and Iona.

    The Knights Templar–Guardians of the Holy Grail

    "She walks upon our meadows green, the Lamb of God walks by her side,
    And (in) every English Child is seen, children of Jesus and his Bride."

    ‘Song of Jerusalem’ by William Blake

    I recently returned from Scotland and England, pursuing the legends and history of the guardians of the Grail mysteries and Magdalene’s legacy, the 12th to 14th century Knights Templar. These Knights were the most powerful military, political-financial and spiritual force of Medieval Europe, consulted by kings, popes, and anyone else choosing to be on the inner power circles of that era. Their realm of influence reached from the Holy Land, the entire near east, Cypress, Malta and throughout what is known today as Europe and Great Britain. The Templars were known for their extensive fleets of ships, and were involved in transporting people, trade items and sacred relics, to the far reaches of the western world, similar to the much earlier Phoenicians.

    "The Templars riding with their red cross were
    the keepers of the secret of the rose within the chalice."

    ‘The Sword and the Grail’ by Andrew Sinclair

    The Templar Order was formed in Jerusalem, 1118 AD with nine members, ostensibly to guard the safety of traveling pilgrims. Although nine Knights is hardly a sufficient number to guard the thousands traveling during the Crusades between Jerusalem and France. Strangely, they were immediately granted posh living quarters at El-Aqsa Mosque, on the site of the old Temple of Jerusalem, and rare permission to excavate the deep vaults below! (They are also called the Knights of the Order of the Temple of Solomon). Some researchers claim they found ancient scrolls, the Holy Grail and even the Ark of the Covenant. Laurence Gardner, author of ‘Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark’ says that by 1127 AD, the Templars had found the Ark, and along with other untold Temple treasures, brought them back to France. Perhaps secret Masonic building codes discovered in Jerusalem fed the rise of the new heights of architectural mastery in the Gothic cathedrals. I suspect that a much older mystical organization lies at the roots of the Knights Templar, an order that was guarding some very powerful and ancient secret knowledge.

    The incredible flowering of the Grail mysteries that rose during the 11th and 12th centuries was squashed by the horrific Inquisition, initiated by Phillip IV, King of France and Pope Clement in order to purge Europe of its heretics. The influencial Templars lived outside of the law, and had gained more power and popularity than was ‘safe’, according to the rulers of church and state. The Inquisition officially began Friday, October 13, 1307, marked by the arrest, imprisonment and torture of thousands of Knights Templar, and punctuated by the 1314 burning at the stake in Paris of Templar Grand Master, Jacques de Molay. A tremendous cache of ancient relics and possible scrolls from Jerusalem, gold and other treasure, was stored in the Templar’s vaults in Paris. Many believe these were secreted out of France during this time, on Templar fleets bound for the safety of Templar-friendly England and even more remote Scotland. King Robert the Bruce was the ‘braveheart’ and grand heretic (already excommunicated by the Pope), of the wild and rebellious Scots, who received the Templars with open arms. The Templars are thought to have joined forces with Bruce, and defeated the English at the famous Battle of Bannockburn. This battle was a turning point for the Scottish rebellion, and England finally recognized Scotland as an independent nation, and Robert The Bruce as their king.

    Rosslyn’s Secret Codes in Stone

    Mary Magdalene is said to be the patron saint of the Knights Templar, and numerous signs of her presence can be found in Scotland, including indications of her children and a Celtic Magdalene bloodline! Our recent journey to Britain began at Rosslyn Chapel, near Edinburgh, just days behind the ABC ‘Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci ‘documentary film crew, …all of us hot on the trail of discovery. This mysterious chapel, is often referred to as a ‘Bible in Stone’, or ‘Chapel of the Grail’’, perhaps built with the Chapel Perilous in mind, mirrors Jerusalem’s Temple of Solomon design. The building of Rosslyn was begun in 1446 and completed forty years later, by Sir William St. Clair, the third and last Prince of Orkney. Members of the Sinclair family claim to be descendants of the Davidic, Merovingian bloodline, through the children of Jesus and Magdalene.

    The prolific symbolic carvings in Rosslyn, many of which relate to the Knights Templar, present a striking integration of both Christian and Pagan motifs. According to Karen Ralls former assistant curator of Rosslyn, in her book ‘The Templars and the Grail’, "Templar, Masonic, Rosicrucian and Christian symbolism….are woven throughout…In many ways, the carvings at Rosslyn Chapel are about the interplay of opposites and complements…light and dark, male and female, life and death."

    According to Andrew Sinclair, member of the St. Clair/Sinclair clan, the name Rosslyn "….is said to derive from the old Scottish ROS-LIN or Rosy Stream, suggesting the blood of Christ." One of the persistent legends regarding Rosslyn is that the Holy Grail is buried within the Apprentice Pillar inside the chapel – possibly the same grail or cup which contained Christ’s blood and is said to have been carried by Joseph of Arimathea from Jerusalem, through France to Britain. Could this Grail brought by either Joseph of Arimathea, or the Templars out of the Holy Land, have finally ended up at Rosslyn?

    Other sacred and precious items originally from Solomon’s Temple and Medieval Europe, brought north for safe-keeping (out of reach of the hands of the Europe’s ‘power brokers’) are said to have been placed at Rosslyn. "The Ark of the Covenant, the mummified head of Christ, the Holy Grail, lost scrolls from the Temple of Jerusalem, Templar Order treasures….a Black Madonna and more have been thought to lie within its vaults." Karen Ralls "The Templars and the Grail". (Some others say the Templars’ grail head is that of John the Baptist). The Sinclair family history also speaks of the Holy Rood, a piece of the original crucifixion cross, being carried to Rosslyn and buried within its vaults.

    Sacred Sites and Nature’s Temples

    Many significant pilgrimage sites across the world are built upon the ruins of earlier temple structures, the locations chosen strategically for the natural earth-spirit currents already present. Common to spiritual centers such as Chartres, Glastonbury, Rosslyn, Iona, Glen Lyon, Sedona, and Mayan and Aztec pyramids, we find numerous crossing energy currents, or ley lines, underground water streams, caves and places of great beauty and power. These are places of pilgrimage, spanning thousands of years. This is certainly the case with Roslin Glen with its winding River Esk, many caves and rare varieties of flora. When walking through the glen, one senses that this is a place of both sanctity and magic, and it is this sense of the sacred that provided original inspiration to build temples at these locations.

    Rosslyn Chapel’s carvings read like a 3-D dictionary of numerous varieties of flora, including mysterious representations of aloe (or agave) and maize. The prolific images of plant and flower varieties found in many Templar-related sites reflect some varieties flora unknown in the north, but native to the Middle East and beyond. The Sinclair clan claim that their ancestor, Prince Henry Sinclair sailed to America in the last decade of the 1300’s, about 100 years before Columbus (whose ships flew the Templar banner with the flayed red cross), and founded Templar sites in Nova Scotia, Rhode Island and Virginia.

    Magdalene and the Mary Chapels

    Barry Dunford, author of ‘Holy Land of Scotland’, who we interviewed in Fortingall, Scotland spoke about the Mary Chapels and alignments through the heart of Scotland. He said there is a straight line connecting Montrose (mount rose), on the eastern coast, through the St. Mary Churches at Grandtully and Fortingall to the western Isle of Iona. Another alignment runs from the east at Marywell, through Fortingall to Tobermory (Well of Mary), close to another key Mary Chapel at Dervaig, Isle of Mull. These lines indicate an ancient pilgrim’s path, full of ‘birthing Mary’ images and legends.

    The St. Mary’s Church at Grandtully has a wooden ceiling mural (c. 1636 AD) depicting numerous Templar and Grail images. Included are two pregnant, female ‘angels’, a Grail Knight, a unicorn and lion, and the Judgement Tarot card including skulls and the black and white checkered floor, similar to the Templar ‘beauseant’ banner.

    Interestingly, this unusual Medieval painting at St. Mary’s Grandtully Church was commissioned by Sir William Stewart and the Royal House of Stewart claim to carry the Holy Davidic Grail Bloodline and both these lineages claim the unicorn as their symbol.

    Following on the ancient pilgrim’s path toward the Isle of Iona, one must cross the Isle of Mull, a naturalist’s paradise. In Kilmore (Kil=church More=Mary) Church at Dervaig, Mull, there is an intriguing stained glass window image, which could be Jesus with a pregnant Magdalene! The stained glass window was made circa 1905, when the present church was built, although a much older Druid site was there before, as the adjacent stone circle indicates. Barry Dunford pointed out that if, as the local Christians believe, the window depicts Mother Mary and Joseph, then Mother Mary would have the halo and Joseph would not. In this image however, the male figure has the halo, and this would indicate it is Jesus and obviously not with his pregnant mother, but holding hands with a pregnant Magdalene. A striking connection here is that the commissioning of this window appears to be by a Thomas Eversfield, named on a church plaque, and displaying two Templar crosses. Was Eversfield a member of the Knights Templar and privy to secret information regarding the Holy Grail Bloodline?

    Just across the sound from Mull, lies the Isle of Iona, once called Innis nan Dhruidhanean, the Isle of the Druids, with several legends speaking of Magdalene’s giving birth to a child, and living her last days in a cave there. There is a crumbling ruin of an old Mary Chapel behind the great Abbey, where the presence of Magdalene is still palpable. It is said that on the Isle of Iona, the veil between earth and heaven are so thin that pilgrims here can easily access spiritual dimensions.

    Just behind the Abbey is a hill called Dun-I, where legend says St. Bride sang love songs daily, calling to her lost Bridegroom. According to Fionna Macleod, author of‘Iona’, two old prophecies say that Christ shall come again upon Iona and when ‘she’ returns, it will be as the Bride of Christ, the Daughter of God.

    As Christian mystics and pilgrims traveled the paths between these spiritual sites, they would ultimately journey southwest to Rosslyn and Edinburgh. During our meeting with Robert Brydon at Temple Village near Rosslyn, he mentioned an important early chapel dedicated to Magdalene in Edinburgh, known throughout the western kingdoms as a fertility site, where women would send items to be blessed for healthy, successful births. I reflected again on my granddaughter’s liberating epiphany while watching the ‘Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci’ film, regarding the genetic inheritance of Holy Blood, and what this Scottish presence of Magdalene and birth associations could mean for a Celtic Grail Bloodline!

    The Rose of Rosslyn

    ‘…I flame above the beauty of the fields; I shine in the waters;
    In the sun, the moon and the stars, I burn.’

    Hildegard of Bingen

    The Rose with its word anagram ‘Eros’, has long been associated with ‘Our Lady’, whether she be in her role as Mary the Mother, Magdalene the Lover, or Saint. It is also associated with the heart of Christ, the Rose of Sharon. The five-petalled rose, Rosa Rugosa, is the earth’s oldest known variety of rose and is a repeating symbol present at many Templar church sites that we visited.

    The unusual solid stone barrel-shaped ceiling of Rosslyn Chapel is divided into five sections, and is covered with carved five-pointed stars, lilies, roses and other flowers. These stars have an ancient association with Venus, Isis and Magdalene and are also found on the ceilings Egyptian temples. (The pentagram’s proportions are a perfect example of the Golden Mean, or PHI ratio, and the sacred geometry used in ancient temple architecture). Another section of the ceiling containing a series of cubes is said to correspond to PHI and a Fibonacci musical scale. As luck would have it, a Hungarian Medieval music group and choir was performing in Rosslyn while I was there.

    Barry Dunford says that Roslin (older spelling) refers to the Rose Line, an energy alignment running through Rosslyn and connecting southward on the early mystic’s pilgrimage route to Avalon and ultimately to Santiago de Compostela (translating as field of stars) in Spain. In fact, the clamshells received as confirmation that one had truly accomplished the long road to Compostella, are still left as offerings on an altar stone within Rosslyn Chapel.

    Rosslyn and Signs of a Holy Grail Bloodline

    Three famous pillars stand at the front of Rosslyn Chapel: The Master Mason’s pillar, the Journeyman’s pillar and the Apprentice pillar, said to represent Wisdom, Strength and Beauty. At the top of the Mason’s pillar are carved angelic musicians. At the base of the Apprentice pillar are eight dragons, from whose mouths come vines, which spiral up and around the pillar, said to represent the Scandinavian myth of eight dragons, who lie at the base of Yggdrasil, the Ash Tree that binds together heaven, earth and hell.

    Legend states that the gifted apprentice, who carved the extraordinary detail of the Apprentice pillar was murdered by his jealous master. We find a similar story and great intrigue, regarding the demise of Hiram Abif, the Master Mason of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. What Hermetic secrets were these ancient masons protecting? Rosslyn Chapel’s only complete inscription appears on the lintel connecting the top of the Apprentice pillar to the south wall, and is carved in Latin on a spiraling ribbon of stone.


    Apprentice Pillar
    Apprentice Pillar, Rosslyn Chapel

    Serpent/Dragon Apprentice Pillar Base,
    Rosslyn Chapel


    Melchizedek with Holy Grail
    Melchizedek with Holy Grail, Rosslyn Chapel

    The English translation follows, as quoted in Robert Brydon’s 2003 Rosslyn Chapel Trust booklet ‘Rosslyn and the Western Mystery Tradition’:



    According to Brydon, this inscription refers to the words and wisdom of ZERUBBABEL, of the lineage of the Royal House of David. In the year 536 BC, the people of Judah were released from their captivity in Persia, and under the leadership of Prince Zerubbabel, they all returned to Jerusalem, and began the building of a new temple upon the ruins of the old Temple of Solomon. Is this fantastic inscription on the arch next to the Apprentice pillar telling of a Scottish or Sinclair connection with the Davidic-Grail bloodline? Is it reminding us that without embracing the feminine, that truth is out of reach?

    Four arches radiate from the Master Mason’s pillar and four more from the Apprentice Pillar, each with 64 cubes, perhaps alluding to the 64 genetic chromosomes. Along with the DNA spiral symbolism on the Apprentice Pillar, this theme is mirrored ‘coincidentally’ in Rosslyn’s nearby genetic farm, where the world’s first cloned sheep and chickens were created! Is all this an uncanny allusion to genetics of a grail bloodline or the alchemical secrets of life contained in the blood and guarded by the Knights Templar, Guardians of Magdalene’s legacy?

    Indications are that it is quite possible that Magdalene and Jesus did have children. Magdalene and/or her children could have come as far north as Britain after the crucifixion, and if they did, there could be a Northern Celtic Holy Bloodline, which spread a Christ-Mary genetic inheritance throughout the Western world.

    I do believe Magdalene is calling us to reclaim the sovereignty and emancipation of the human soul, at the beginning of the second millennium and a crucial turning point for Earth. Now is the time to rewrite our global myth. The planetary alignment and lunar eclipse of November 8, 2003, with its six-pointed Star of David pattern is a powerful symbol for this re-integration of male-female, the alchemy of the union of opposites. Magdalene’s return signals a fusion of dimensions of consciousness fragmented for two thousand years, giving birth now to a potent healing force and opening the Grail of the Heart.

    Join Ani Williams June 15 - 26, 2008, for Pilgrimage of the Holy Grail in Britain. With the magic of these sacred sites, and the transforming power of harp and song, we will partake of the ancient alchemy of the union of Earth and Spirit.

    Templarios=masones - La Rochelle en Francia, Roslin en Escocia y Rosslyn en Virginia - fantasía de "Jesús"

    Los masones indican que su historia tendría sus inicios con los templarios (14min.53seg.).

    Templarios - los francmasones e iluminati                         tenían solo otros nombres antes - y esos                         extremistas son los destructores principales del                         mundo
    Templarios - los francmasones e iluminati tenían solo otros nombres antes -
    y esos extremistas son los destructores principales del mundo

    [Así vemos lo que han hecho en Escocia y qué hacen en "América"]:

    En la ciudad de Washington hay una zona que se llama Rosslyn (en Virginia), y ese Rosslyn está en una línea horizontal con la Casa Blanca - y justamente es el mismo nombre como Roslin de los francmasones en Escocia (14min.58seg.). Roslin en Escocia fue el lugar donde los templarios han fugado viniendo de La Rochelle in Francia, y en Roslin en Escocia se reunieron otra vez para instalar su Orden de Templarios (caballeros templarios). Allá han celebrado su fantasía de ser "herederos" de una "línea genética" [de fantasía] de un "Jesús" [de fantasía] (15min.20seg.).

    Rosslyn en Virginia están en una línea                         horizontal con la Casa Blanca (!)    La fuga de los templarios extremistas con                         sus fantasías de un "Jesús" de La                         Rochelle a Roslin en Escocia desde 1307, mapa
    Rosslyn en Virginia están en una línea horizontal con la Casa Blanca (!) - la fuga de los templarios extremistas con sus fantasías de un "Jesús" de La Rochelle a Roslin en Escocia desde 1307, mapa

    El viernes, el 13 de octubre 1307 la mayoría de los templarios fueron tomados presos, sus propiedades fueron confiscados, fueron interrogados y torturados a la muerte por los agentes del rey francés lo que solo siguió a una orden del papa (15min.39seg.).

    Rosslyn (en Virginia) tiene 2 dos características, un pueblo de baile y un cementerio del ejército de la marina (marine corps memorial). Una línea directa del centro de ese cementerio al centro de la iglesia en Roslin en Escocia toca la punta de la pirámide vial completada de Washington DC (16min.20seg.).

    Edimburgo cerca de Roslin: la "milla real"

    El rey David I de Escocia instaló edificios en una distancia de una "milla real". La distancia entre la fachada del convento Holyrood y la torre del Castillo de Edimburgo es una "milla real" - y eso es la misma distancia como la "milla real egipcia" (16min.54seg.). Y:

    Una milla real egipcia = 8/7 de una milla internacional (statute mile) (16min.58seg.).

    Milla real en Edimburgo, instalada en 1128                         apr. por el rey David I de Escocia, el letrero   La "milla real" entre el Castillo                         de Edimburgo y el convento de Holyrood

    El radio polar de la Tierra tiene 3.456 millas reales (con una precisión de 99,995% valor moderno), ver el libro de Richard Heath "Sacred Number" (17min.10seg.).

    El radio polar de la Tierra es 3.456 millas reales (ver Richard Heath: "Número santo" (inglés: "Sacred Number")
    El rey David instaló esa estructura de Egipto en Escocia y con eso él instaló el gobierno de los caballeros templarios (17min.18seg.). Después inició la arquitectura gótica que vino del Medio Oriente. Así es bien posible que el rey David tenía conexiones con Jerusalén (17min.33seg.).

    My thanks to Alec Ratcliffe for discovering another Secret in Plain Sight where he lives in Bolton, UK. He discovered that Bolton is the midpoint of an alignment connecting Stonehenge to Rosslyn Chapel.

    SH Bolton RC

    The road that leads to the centre of Bolton is the A666 which was nicknamed the “Devil’s Highway” due to its number and appalling accident rate. Bolton’s city council renamed the A666 “St. Peter’s Way”, lowered the speed limit, and made safety improvements to reduce the death toll which was three times higher than other motorways in the borough. –Source

    Winter Hill Bolton 666

    The phone number of the Bolton Town Hall is 333333. Are you starting to get the picture?

    The above signs mark a public right of way that is actually an ancient right of way leading over Bolton’s Winter Hill:

    The top of Winter Hill has the highest television transmitting antenna in the UK at 1035 feet in height. Take a look at its very long shadow.

    Winter hill

    The transmitter on the top of the Winter Hill antenna is 777m above sea level.

    Support wires, to hold the mast vertical, are pitched at 120° when viewed from above. These are connected at 5 heights, reminding one of pyramids.

    Gratings on the roads in Bolton have rhombi and pyramids on them. Hmm.

    The coat of arms for the Bolton County Borough Council features an Elephant and Castle on top:

    The pediment of the town hall shows the Elephant and Castle on the shield the Queen is holding.

    In fact Elephants and Castles are all over Bolton. Here’s another:

    There is a major road intersection in South London called Elephant and Castle which is shaped like an inverted pentagon with respect to true North. The Michael Faraday Memorial within this pentagon has a swastika-like form from above. It contains an electrical substation that powers the London Underground.

    Elephant London

    Elephant and Castle, South London

    “Elephant and Castle” is derived from a coaching inn of that name on the site. The earliest surviving record of this name relating to the area is in the Court Leet Book of the Manor of Walworth. This local court had met at “Elephant and Castle, Newington” on 21 March 1765. Previously the site was occupied by a blacksmith and cutler – the coat of arms of the Worshipful Company of Cutlers [knife makers] features an elephant with a castle. –Source

    “Worshipful Companies” are livery companies of the City of London.

    The active livery companies play an important part in social life and networking in the City of London, and have a long history of cultural patronage, and control of the City of London Corporation. –Source

    I talked a bit about the City of London Corporation and the Lord Mayor in my London video episode.

    The senior officer of a Masonic Lodge is normally addressed and referred to as the “Worshipful Master.” The office of Worshipful Master is the highest honor to which a lodge may appoint any of its members.

    Following my intuition I pondered the connections between Bolton and the freemasons. After finding so many Secrets in Plain Sight in my last few posts in New York I have wondered about its namesake in York and the York Rite of freemasonry.

    I discovered that the oldest freemasonic lodge in York, Lodge 236, used to meet in a place called Elephant & Castle in the 19th century. Lodge 236 was established on 7/7/1777. –Source

    All those sevens tie in well with Bolton having Elephants and Castles all over the town and the Winter Hill transmitting station being 777m above sea level.

    Are these all just coincidences? Here are a few more:

    • In my post on 666, I mentioned Cergy-Pontoise has an area of 77.7 square kilometers.
    • In my post on One Times Square I mentioned that the Time Ball drops 77 feet on New Year’s eve.
    • Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.

    The Knights Templar is an autonomous body within the York Rite. Thus the order still exists today in freemasonic form. Here is the symbol of the Knights Templar order:

    Knights Templar Logo Freemasonry

    In Hoc Signo Vinces is Latin for “In this Sign You Will Conquer.”

    The sign shown below is the infamous Nazi iron cross. Hitler conquered for a time using the swastika at the center of this very similar symbol.

    EK 1class

    Luz from Columbia sent me this picture yesterday of an artificial intelligence chip IBM has just developed. See here. I don’t know if the Templars are connected to artificial intelligence at this point but I have a great respect for the illuminating power of coincidence. My friend Rick counted and there are indeed 33 lines on each edge of this neurosynaptic core chip:


    Image source

    Will artificial intelligence conquer our minds? Man vs machine is a common theme in popular television series and movies.

    Everything is connected. Following the connections through alignments, numbers, and symbols sometimes leads to profound insights.

    Perhaps the Faraday Memorial at the center of the inverted pentagram within Elephant and Castle is a clue. If the London Elephant & Castle sends power underground, then what is the highest transmitting antenna in the UK sending through the air?

    Television is the most successful device ever devised to control the mind.
