BEUZAN THE PRIEST OF STONEHENGE
I come to you with the name of Beuzan and I have been requested to talk
to you tonight on the topic that you have requested about Stonehenge.
In one of my incarnations I was a priest at that place. I worked in
much the same capacity as this medium is working tonight, and I am
being taken back much further than my own time - to the time when those
people arrived in the misty isles. They came by a basic simple boat,
at a time when the sea was lower and the distance from the isles to the
mainland was much shorter than it is now.
The boats were a simple construction, I believe you would call them
basically rafts. They arrived sometime after the islands had separated
from the mainland. They found a land covered in forests. It was
basically a benign land. It was then warmer than you know it today.
They found the plain where those stones stand now. This was one of the
few areas where there were not many trees, but there were stones there.
And the leaders of the people, because this area was treeless, felt
that it was a special place.
They needed to know the calendar in that place. And they observed the
rising of the stars and the summer solstice. This was the important
point for them, the point when the sun was at its strongest, for they
were sun worshippers. And there was anxiety amongst them because they
did not know the point at which this occurred until they had been there
some years and had made their observations, and then they were able to
build their sacred area.
They did conduct sacrifices at that place. They sacrificed animals,
and, once a year, a human. They were able to raise the stones using
primitive methods. They bound the top stone onto the two vertical
stones before raising them into position. They used plant materials
which they twisted into ropes and they also used parts of animals.
Particularly the intestines of the larger animals which they hunted
there, mainly the pigs and deer. The process took them many years.
They observed not only the sun at the summer solstice, they also
observed the rising of various stars which helped them to divide the
year into four sections. But with the passage of time the positions of
the stars have moved and they no longer accurately rise where they used
to. And so it will not be possible for you to ascertain those stars in
your time. I can tell you that they did take a sighting to the pole
star. The names of the other stars I cannot give you because the names
they used are different to the names that you use, and I cannot connect
The ceremonies were conducted throughout the year. Every tenth day.
For their week consisted of ten days. There were some discrepancies
arising over the years because they did not understand the quarter-day.
(I presume Beuzan is here referring to the extra few hours that the
sun takes to complete its revolution of the sun.) But they always
started their year at the summer solstice which they could ascertain.
Their counting methods were primitive, and so they could not calculate
accurately at that point in time, the number of days in a year. This
is why that place was so important to them. They simply took from one
star rising to the next without counting the large number of days.
After a while they did realise that there was a discrepancy but they
could not accommodate, in their numbering system, large numbers, so
their main points were the rising of these stars and the summer
Their ceremonies involved the concentrating of energy in that place.
This is why they were arranged in a circle and you will find engraved
circular signs on the stones. The circle has always represented the
sun. The point of purpose for concentrating the energy in that place
was to give the sun the energy to continue rising. The focussing of
the energy could also be used for healing and to enable the chief
priest to enter trance, so that he could give the people's petitions to
the sun-god. They told the god what it was they wanted, and the human
sacrifice at the summer solstice was believed to go to the sun-god and
there he would report on the conditions of the people and tell the god
what it was they needed. And if conditions were bad or some disaster
struck the people it was believed that the sacrifice had not done his
job correctly and another sacrifice would be offered - another human
sacrifice. At the end of the ceremony the body of the sacrifice would
be burnt, so the body in the flames - the flame being heat like the
heat from the sun - the body would be able to be used by the spirit of
the sacrifice for his journey to the sun-god.
The sacrifice would be selected by drawing lots, as it was considered
that the sun-god would thereby select the person he required. It was
also thought that disasters were brought about by the wrong attitude of
some person of the tribe, and efforts would be made to find this person
to be sacrificed to the sun-god. In this way the disharmony was
removed from the tribe. In those days everyone in the tribe had to
co-operate and work together, otherwise the tribe would not survive.
And if someone was not co-operating they could endanger the tribe and
they had to be removed. They would not be co-operating if they were
keeping food for themselves instead of sharing it with everyone. If,
perhaps, they had found a particularly luxuriant plant that they used
and that person did not tell the rest where it was, that would be not
co-operating. It was this kind of behaviour that was a danger to the
rest of the tribe - everything had to be shared to give everyone an
equal chance of life. The elderly people were cared for. It was seen
that they had shelter and they had food, because it was the old people
that carried the tribe's memories and they passed them on to the young
people. They passed on their stories of their origins and many of
these stories became the old myths and legends, many of which have gone
from your knowledge. There would be stories of the heroes, of someone
who had saved the tribe from danger, thus inspiring the young ones,
giving them some information that may be of use to them if they, too,
were in similar situations.
The people lived in huts made from branches and daubed over with mud.
More branches and dry grass would be laid on the outside and tied down
for shelter from the rains. Of course, with the passage of time the
houses became more elaborate and more efficient, but still mainly built
At first they were but stone users and the development of metal-working
was a great benefit to them. They shaped the stones as best they could
with flint implements. Stone wedges could be inserted in cracks and
then hammered home to split off, to shape, the stones. It was a long
process. It would have taken twenty to thirty years to erect the
stones because, remember, everyone in the tribe had to contribute
towards the food gathering, and so it was not possible to have large
numbers of men working constantly on the stones. Work was always being
carried out on the stones but there were not many who could be spared
at any one time.
There are other Stonehenges to be found in Europe, and the one that you
are referring to was built towards the end of the Stonehenge period.
It was not the last one built, there are some further to the north that
It was taken there by people who were moving out, the adventurous type
of person who wished to know what was over the next hill, they were the
ones who travelled at that time. They had hoped that there would be
people there whom they could convert. But, in the area where they
spread they found no-one.
Now, you find what you term ley-lines - straight lines of stones. And
these ley-lines if extended, if you can find everyone of the stones
that were laid, you will find that they connect up the Stonehenges.
The ancients did this with a combination of telepathy and the sighting
by the stars. Their boats may have been very basic and crude but they
were skilful sailors, and the stretch of the sea from the island to the
mainland that you now call Europe, was not very great. And so, there
did develop quite extensive connections at that time.
There are still to be found the old telepathic vibrations along these
ley-lines if you are a particularly sensitive person, but they are
fading. These days they are indeed very faint, but very sensitive
people can still feel these vibrations that passed from one circle of
stones to another. The aim was to concentrate the energy. By working
together they could more powerfully influence the sun-god to help them
to produce their food and increase their animals The establishment of
the henge in that island also had the effect of bringing energy from a
different angle, and so it was believed that the increase of power and
energy would be much greater.
So this was the purpose of the henges - to concentrate the energy and
to send messengers to their sun-god, to give a calendar so that they
could be ready for the summer solstice, so that they knew where they
were in time. They had only the yearly cycle and it was important to
them to know where they were in that cycle. This helped them to judge
when to plant and what to hunt, what they could expect to find and when
to start their very basic food preparation for the winter. When you
have an inefficient counting system and you cannot count large numbers
of days you need to have some way of knowing where you are in the
yearly cycle, and the henges were used also for this.
If you wish I will attempt to answer your questions.
Doreen: Were the priests of that time called Druids? Was that in the
time when Druids were around?
Beuzan: Not in the very earliest times. There was the development in
the religion with time and the Druidic philosophy arose sometime later.
It was a development from the beliefs of the early days.
Gina: Legend has it that two of England's very great kings are buried
underneath the main stone in Stonehenge. Does this have a basis in
Beuzan: Not under the stone at Stonehenge. It was in place many years
before the concepts of kings arose there.
Gina: Were kings buried anywhere near there?
Beuzan: Not that I know of.
Doreen: Can you say something about the healing at the stones at that
Beuzan: The people needing healing would be taken to the centre of the
circle with the priests standing around them and the other members of
the tribe around the outer side of the circle, and then the energy
would be directed to the sick.
Gina: How successful was this?
Beuzan: About half the time.
Guy: It is speculated today that some of the stones have been dragged
over huge distances, many miles. Was that so?
Beuzan: No. The stones were there.
Guy: As a priest there, were you aware at that time of the life in
Spirit? Its survival and all that.
Beuzan: Yes. You understand, of course, there have been changes in the
Spirit World with time. Those changes arose as a result of the
concepts of the people as they passed over. As the concepts and
expectations of life in your material world change and develop so the
people passing over have different expectations. And so what they
experience in the Spirit World is different to what the people coming
before them experienced. I am, of course, talking about the first part
of the Spirit World. You have few people passing over today expecting
to find a cave to shelter in, or being afraid of a sabre tooth tiger.
They will have different concepts, different things to be afraid of.
In my day we did not have the concept of angels in white dresses. We
did, however, believe that spirits could fly.
Doreen: Did you work with the nature spirits?
Beuzan: We tried to use the energy - how can I put it? - The energy
that we felt from the earth. We felt the earth itself had an energy
and when that was properly harnessed it could be used for our benefit.
And that energy was largely generated by the sun.
Guy: When you passed over I suppose you expected to find the Sun as a
God. What did you find?
Beuzan: I expected to go to the sun. (reflectively) What did I find?
There was a broad stretch of open plain and I was greeted by many
people who had gone before me. And I was greeted by the light and by
the energy, and I realised the misconceptions I had held. I sought to
enlighten those I had left behind. In time I, and others joining with
me in this work, were able to influence them and to lead them to a
better way of thinking. And then I was at peace.
Guy: You have never reincarnated since?
Beuzan: I did reincarnate, a long time ago.
Guy: In a similar culture or different?
Beuzan: In Rome.
Guy: May we ask, what kind of world you are inhabiting now?
Beuzan: A peaceful one. I have gone beyond that first stage of the
Spirit World. I am in the stage, perhaps, I think you have heard this
described as sliding down rainbows.
Gina: It must be very pleasant.
Beuzan: It is. And I also still seek to send the energy to your world
and to other worlds. In the midst of our pleasure and our joy we still
remember you and meditate on the material world. This is how I was
able to be contacted to come to talk to you tonight.
Guy: In your day, were they already using metal tools?
Beuzan: They were just coming.
Guy: If they were just coming - that would put you around 1500 BC, or
Beuzan: They were objects of great wonder.
If you will excuse me I will leave you tonight. I find this process
Guy: We appreciate very much your coming.
Beuzan: Thank you for listening. And peace be with you.
Gina: Peace be with you.
