The Modern Antiquarian: A Pre-Millennial Odyssey Through Megalithic Britain is a book written by Julian Cope, published in 1998. It explores a number of sites of Britain's megalithic heritage, including Stonehenge and Avebury. Many guides only deal with stone circles, whereas the Modern Antiquarian includes other megalithic monuments, hill forts, barrows and unusual places.

In the introduction Cope explains how a visit to Avebury Stone Circle inspired his enthusiasm for the subject. He was disappointed with the quality of available guidebooks, so decided to write his own. He visited and researched hundreds of sites over eight years, selecting about 300 of the most significant for the book.

The book is divided into two sections, the first being ten essays by Cope about various aspects of megalithic British culture. The second section and the bulk of the book is a geographically arranged gazetteer of the sites. Each entry includes an essay, directions to the site, map references, Cope's own account of his visit, photographs, drawings and (sometimes) poems.

…..also that human speech and our thoughts when they are directed at water droplets (just before they are frozen) will result in an image of water crystals that form uniformly and beautifully when positive emotions are present.

Likewise the more unattractive water crystals are formed from negative thoughts or words that are directed to water.

Polluted water appears the same as the negative-thought water crystals from lab test.

….. water responds to prayer, music, words spoken aloud or by attaching written words to a container of water, and getting a reaction.

…that goodwill is the magic of universal cooperation and sharing.

To listen, one has to have not only a certain quality of attention but also a sense of affection, a sense of trying to understand what life is saying. Then both are in communication with each other.

One has to learn the art of listening. When you listen to music which you like, there is no resistance. You go with it, you shake your head, you clap your hands, you do all kinds of things to express your appreciation, your understanding of the quality of the music, and so on. There is no form of defence, no form of resistance, you are going with it, you are flowing with it.

So, learning the art of listening, to the birds, to the wind, to the breeze, is to become extraordinarily sensitive in listening. When you listen, you catch up quickly, you don't have to have a lot of explanations, analyses and descriptions, you are flowing with each other.

Talking together as two friends sitting in a park, or in a wood, quiet, birds are singing, there's plenty of light coming through the leaves on the floor and there is a sense of appreciation of beauty. When you so listen, the miracle takes place. When you so listen, it is like sowing a seed.

So one has to learn the art of listening.

If you listen very, very carefully, you capture it so quickly, the meaning of what the other is saying. There is great beauty in listening to a bird, to the wind among the leaves, and to a word that is spoken with depth, with meaning, with passion.

Is it that we are so caught up in our own network of problems, our own desires, our own urges of pleasure and pain that we never look around, never watch the moon? Watch it. Watch with all your eyes and ears, your sense of smell. 


Look as though you are looking for the first time. If you can do that, that tree, that bush, that blade of grass you are seeing for the first time.

To be in communion with nature, not verbally caught in the description of it, but be a part of it, be aware, feel that you belong to all that, be able to have love for all that, to admire a deer, the lizard on the wall, that broken branch lying on the ground. 

Looking at the evening star or the new moon, without the word, without merely saying how beautiful it is and turning your back on it, attracted by something else, but watch that single star and new delicate moon as though for the first time. 

We have lost all sense of relationship in which there is not only a verbal statement of affection and concern but also this sense of communion which is not verbal. 

It is a sense that we are all together, that we are all human beings, not divided, not broken up, not belonging to any particular group or race, or to some idealistic concepts, but that we are all human beings, we are all living on this extraordinary, beautiful earth.

Have you ever woken up in the morning and looked out of the window, or gone out on the terrace and looked at the trees and the spring dawn? 

Live with it. 

Listen to all the sounds, to the whisper, the slight breeze among the leaves. See the light on that leaf and watch the sun coming over the hill, over the meadow 

....that animal grazing and those sheep across the hill watch them. Look at them with a sense of affection, care, that you do not want to hurt a thing. 

When you have such communion with nature, then your relationship with another becomes simple, clear

………….without conflict and pain.

I thought I'd better introduce the ''Angelic World'' ... that we, as humans are humbly living in more people can understand at what Grace these beings allow us to experience their abode on this Earth ......

Elemental Kingdoms

We now come to a group of beings that we can neither see nor feel in a direct sense although their forms of expression are all around us through the elements of earth, air, fire and water.

We call these beings elementals although they are also known as Faeries and are a part of the Faerie realms. Many traditional cultures have sensed the presence of spirits in nature, indeed one major religion Shinto, from Japan, specifically worships the spirits of place, called Kami, which reside in rocks and caves.

The beings that inhabit these realms are conscious like you and I, although obviously they have a very different way of connecting to the physical world that we see around us.

Unless you possess clairvoyant vision you will not readily ‘see’ the beings that lie behind these seemingly inert elements although they are very attracted to the innocence of young children and sometimes appear to them, so the child that claims to have seen a ‘fairy’ may indeed be telling the truth.

Elemental Evolution

Like all spirit essences these beings commence their evolutionary cycle with a choice in the way they wish to explore physicality. They also have the additional option of choosing which ‘element’, be it earth, air, fire or water, as their starting point. An elemental spirit therefore has additional choices on whether to start their spiritual journey as a Gnome, Sylph, Undine or Salamander.

Elementals evolve through first learning to manipulate and understand their own element before progressing to embody the qualities of another element. For example an earth elemental or Gnome that is associated with a group of rocks by the seashore may eventually come to understand and appreciate the role of the Undines or water beings.

This development process continues until eventually all four elements are assimilated at which stage the elemental being is given a new accolade of being called a ‘deva’.


This is a Sanskrit word, from the Hindu tradition, which literally means ‘shining one’. However Christian, Judaic and Islamic cultures know these beings as angels of which the Cherubim and Seraphim are a part.

Once devahood has been gained the elemental or angelic being takes on greater and greater responsibilities looking after whole areas of land or sea and becoming responsible for groups of spirits, which are part of its retinue.

There are devas which look after towns and cities as well as tracts of the countryside. At the top of this metaphoric tree is the Planetary Deva, which many people nowadays have come to call Gaia.

Communicating with Elementals

Elementals communicate with us through telepathic images presenting information on the things they know and understand.

In the first instance you need to believe in their existence. This can be hard for some people brought up in a very rational way. Once the bridge has been crossed there is a rich world waiting to be explored. Over he centuries we have created a picture on how these elemental beings look and these images get fed back to us.

For example Gnomes are traditionally seen a small human-like beings one or three feet tall, much as is portrayed in the traditional ‘garden gnome’. If they presented an image to us of say a golden rock we might not identify it as an elemental spirit.

In a similar way a fire elemental would more likely to show itself as a fiery being rather than a bright ‘spark of light’. They present mental images to us that reflect our understanding of their domains. They read not only our minds but also are acutely conscious of our feelings and spiritual awareness.

 A person who disrespects nature will never gain their sympathy or support. We do not appreciate how clearly these emotional qualities show up in our individual energy fields, which can be easily read by spirit essences. 

So to gain the respect and help of the Elemental kingdoms you have to have a love of nature.
