Slimbridge Dowsing


Three Perpetual Choirs - Trish Mills

Music is more important than we realise. Witness the good done by Gareth Malone’s Military Wives Choir, who first came together to cheer themselves up while their husbands were away at war, and has led to myriad amateur choirs springing up throughout the country.

Then there is ‘El Sistema’, publicly funded youth orchestras and choirs that have lead to social reform in Venezuela; and an English equivalent called ‘In Harmony’, with communities benefiting from meeting like-minded souls on the right vibration, all in the name of music.

This is nothing new! Over 2,500 years ago, there were Three Perpetual Choirs in this area, probably comprised of early monks, saints or druids, that maintained ceaseless chanting on a rolling rota basis, 24/7, for the ongoing enchantment of Britain.

There were 2,400 men in each choir, a 100 of them chanting every hour of the day and night, 7,200 altogether. With one choir based at Llantwit Major in South Wales, one at Glastonbury in Somerset, and the third at Amesbury, near Stonehenge, the three choirs had a massive area of influence. Stretching from Stafford in the north, to Glastonbury in the south, Milton Keynes in the east to Llandovery in the West, it covers 22 counties and an area in excess of 14,000 square miles.

And one of the country’s foremost dowsers, John Gibson-Forty, has dowsed all of it! By asking his dowsing rods to connect with the energies emanating from the three choirs as they were 2,500 years ago, he has traced a ten-pointed, ten-sided geometric colossus in the shape of a decagon, with its centre at Whiteleaved Oak, in Herefordshire.

Our speaker on Saturday 22nd February, Trish Mills brought us up to date with Gibson-Forty’s findings, published in his book, ‘The Interconnectedness of All Things’.

His theory is that music, based on numbers and cymatics, is the basis of all the designs in nature. It may even be the secret of the building of the pyramids. Tibetan musicians using drums and trumpets have been seen to take just five minutes to raise a massive carved stone 820 feet up a cliff face.

The explanation, fanciful thought it may seem, is that resonance and vibration induce anti-gravity or levitation. Whether you believe that or not, music certainly has power. So keep on singing!

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 13th March when Peter Knight talks about the Cerne Abbas giant.
