WELLNESS IN SARDINIA

The Power of The Ancient Stones

Sardinia has hosted one of the most spiritually evolving megalithic civilizations on the planet.

The nuragic stones as Dolmen, Menhir, Domus de Janas, Tombs of the Giants and the Sacred Wells, emanate a magnetic force through streams transmitted by the slits of the granite, which influence the body and mind triggering a mechanism of purification and regeneration.

We’re talking about thousands of memorials, made in the period between Pre-Nuragic and Nuragic (6000 BC – 1800 B.C.) many of which are still observable, enclosed in the veil of mystery and enigma that is an integrant part of the island and its inhabitants.

It seems still amazing to consider how the disposition of these monuments was not left to chance, but each of them was in line with at least two others, and even being able to assume that the entire area was once affected by linked and orderly alignments, comparable to a primitive land-use planning system.

Many civilizations have entrusted their data to the stone. The ancients built temples and megalithic structures in particular places, to use the accumulation of energy produced by their natural vortexes. The builders, used the natural geomancy, and energy flows of a place to record the totality of their knowledge on each stone of the building.

Theories about the function of Nuraghes are the most disparate and still subject of heated debate: one of the most credited hypotheses assimilates them to worship buildings as well as territorial control, while another thesis, equally compelling, imagine the orientation of access or of the tangents to the peripheral towers, according to astronomical criteria related in particular to the solstice and equinoctial lines.

Each of these places has a special feature. The stones are placed in a specific configuration, that uses light as a key to activate stellar energies on Earth, making possible an exchange of information through a connection between human beings-Earth-Star.

Sacred sites can be activated by individuals using their own conscience keys to open them, reminding knowledge that it has been preserved and celebrated. To enable these sacred sites is enough to imagine their Chakra energy as doors that open personal remembrance.

Worshipers of the Sacred Stones arrive in Gallura from all over Italy, ready to capture the rain of particles given off by healing Megaliths.
They line up to sit and absorb the positive energy emitted by the “magic stones”. A mystical somewhere between New Age and Stonehenge. Some cure would be made of infrasound melody. For example performing Tomba dei Giganti Li Mizzani called Tomb of Energy, located between Arzachena and Palau is a perfect musical instrument that vibrates, emitting a wave frequency of around 430 Hz. A balm for body cells.

Granite is piezoelectric, it transfers energy, and is made of silicon dioxide; for these properties, the Tombe dei Giganti is like a particle accelerator. It has a natural magneto effect. The beneficial result is not the result of suggestion, but a natural nuclear medicine that cures the cell. The particles crumble any source of pain.

Basalt, which was first used for the construction of important monuments such as Sacred Wells, today it is used hot to fulfill one of the most popular massages in the Spa and Wellness Centers called Hot Stone Massage, to help general relaxation, loosening joint tensions and benefiting muscle stiffness.

The Nuragic stones, granite monoliths of Sardinia are part of the cultural, historical and archaeological that is intertwined with the concept of well-being, quality of life, spirituality, and mysticism that has always characterized the Island.
