I just heard that the US administration must shortly decide whether to grant uranium mining rights on sacred sites, the Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore. It reminded me of a story from a local gazette in the early 1900s about artifacts being found which showed that the ancient Egyptians were mining uranium there thousands of years before the ‘white man’ discovered it.
Here’s the old newspaper story.
There’s a lot to read and get your head round. So for those who’d just like the relevant highlights, what it does show is that lotus-worshipping, shrine-building miners with Oriental facial features were living, thousands of years ago, in an immense octagonal-shaped chamber deep under the Grand Canyon, and they must have been there for a long time because they’d mummified their dead.

Remarkable Finds Indicate Ancient People Migrated From Orient
Nearly a mile underground, about 1480 feet below the surface, the long main passage has been delved into, to find another mammoth chamber from which radiates scores of passageways, like the spokes of a wheel.
Several hundred rooms have been discovered, reached by passageways running from the main passage, one of them having been explored for 854 feet and another 634 feet.
The recent finds include articles which have never been known as native to this country and doubtless they had their origin in the Orient. War weapons, copper instruments sharp edged and hard as steel, indicate the high state of civilization reached by these strange people.
“Over a hundred feet from the entrance is a cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which was found the idol, or image, of the peoples god, sitting cross-legged, with a Lotus flower or Lily in each hand. The cast of the face is Oriental, and the carving shows a skillful hand, and the entire is remarkably well preserved, as is everything in this cavern. The idol most resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that the worship most resembles the ancient people of Thibet. Surrounding this idol are smaller images, some beautiful in form, other crooked necked and distorted shapes, symbolical, probably, of good and evil. There are two large cacti with protruding arms, one on each side of the dais on which the god squats. All this is carved out of hard rock resembling marble.
So how do we know that they were mining uranium or at least some kind of metal?
“A grey metal is also found in this cavern which puzzles the scientists, for its identity has not been established. It resembles platinum.”
Uranium was only discovered a couple of years after the publication of this story, but enough must have been known about it because, soon after, the story was hushed up and Mr Kincaid, who made the discovery, was never heard from again. The Smithsonian then effectively buried the story, and took control of the area, blocking up the cave mouths and then stopping anyone else from discovering them by refusing to grant permission to climbers to explore around the many locations in the Grand Canyon which are, oddly, named after Egyptian deities.
With a shaman’s eye and given what we know about how our ancestors saw the divine in natural formations, it is inconceivable that the most ancient Americans, who ever they were, would not have seen the Grand Canyon as an enormous sacred area made up of many temples and monuments. And any ancient Egyptians would have noticed that they were natural pyramids, making them doubly sacred in their eyes.
For instance, Mount Rushmore, which is also now under threat from uranium mining development, was originally called the Six Grandfathers by the indigenous Lakota Sioux. It was part of their processional route during their annual pilgrimage to their sacred site of Harney Peak. I expect that the faces of the Six Grandfathers were already present in the natural formation and were enhanced and changed into the former US presidents. It might be a good idea to remember this when we’re criticising the Afghan Taliban for smashing up rock-hewn Buddhas.
So if the ancient Egyptians were in the Grand Canyon about four thousand years ago, how did they get there? Well, it most probably was a Phoenician boat which brought them there, because the ancient Egyptians tended to use them as their navy. In fact, the boat may have been very much like this one found by the inestimable Gloria Farley. It is carved on a rock and shows the Phoenician/Cathaginian goddess blessing a Mediterranean-style boat of the period. The only trouble is ~ this petroglyph of a boat was not found in Italy or Tunisia, but in North America.
Many of Gloria Farley’s extraordinarily exotic epigraphical finds in North America, which she records in her book In Plain Sight, were Phoenician/Carthaginian and Egyptian. However, because she was associated with Barry Fell who is said to have falsified data, these were deemed to have been debunked. But notwithstanding that, there are one or two of these finds which are obviously Old World epigraphy ~ they cannot be anything else ~ and it is only untrained eyes employing their dratted Occam’s Razor that decide otherwise.
A short digression on Occam’s Razor
My view is that Occam’s razor is not the Delphic Oracle, and the assertion that when all else is equal, the simplest solution is probably the correct one, is not scientific. Nature uses many solutions from the simplest to the most complex. For instance, no molecular biologist would describe the single cell as ‘simple’. Some have described it as more complex than a galaxy.
As the late great archaeologist George Smith wrote of Farley’s work:
“Library research has been of enormous importance to Gloria. It has allowed her to recognize such Old World figures as Sheela-na-gig, the goddess of birth who has a long history in Europe. This figure had gone unrecognized by those who called the rock carvings Gloria works with “American Indian rock art.” The same goes for Epona, the horse goddess, and Anubis, the Egyptian jackal-headed god of the dead. These things had been seen, but not comprehended by most rock art specialists, for the eye can really see only what it is prepared to see.
“Without a background in Old World forms, a drawing of a woman on horseback is simply a post-contact figure. It takes an informed eye to see an Old World goddess. This was again shown in Gloria’s discovery of the figure of the Carthaginian goddess Tanit. In all of this Gloria has far exceeded most professionals in petroglyph studies, for most of them are woefully uninformed in Old World cultural studies pertinent to American rock art. Actually the case is much worse, for the majority of rock art specialists have maintained a firmly closed mind to such comparisons as are richly presented in this volume.
“One can look at huge books that survey the rock art of the Americas without finding any of the alphabetic inscriptions or Old World figures, or even the ships that Gloria finds, records, and publishes. The professional is blinded by that which is known as the “Anthropological Monroe Doctrine.” This states that there was no meaningful Old World, pre-Columbian influences in the New World. So when solid evidence is presented about ships, or horses, or deities, or readable inscriptions, an Americanist, whether anthropologist, ethnologist, or historian, will generally conclude that the material is meaningless, fraudulent, or post contact.”
I think old George has seen off Occam’s Razor!
Carl Munck has developed a planetary grid system which shows how, geometrically, the Great Pyramid was linked to the Grand Canyon. But again, Occam’s Razor is useless when it is wielded by those who are in complete ignorance of our ancestors’ navigational capabilities.
It is known that tens of thousands of years ago, our ancestors navigated by the stars and the moon, they had knowledge of the currents and, if wodr is reading this, I’m sure he’ll confirm (because it was he that told me) that they would have used, for a compass, a needle magnetized by a lodestone floating in a bowl of water, and also a type of astrolabe or sextant.
So possibly the ancient Egyptians did stake the first claim on these uranium mines in America, but please don’t tell Zahi Hawass. You know what he’s like. And we’ll never hear the end of it!
Shamanic Earth Magic
When the people of Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, the word on everyone’s lips was Sovereignty.
But what is Sovereignty?
There were some who tried to convince the British people that Sovereignty didn’t really exist, or that if it did, it was over-rated. A few self-styled experts claimed that Sovereignty could be extended or pooled; others insisted that Sovereignty was merely “the ability to get things done.”
All of those pundits were wrong – although they were hardly to blame for their errors. Sovereignty actually starts off life as a spiritual transmission from the spirits of the land, but this is no longer taught to the general populace.
However, a few mystic types did know about Sovereignty, and so they weren’t at all surprised when its spirit rose up from the land on the Summer Solstice of 2016, and infused the hearts and minds of the ordinary people of Britain.
In this book, Reclaiming Sovereignty, you will learn all about the spiritual source of Sovereignty – and how to find it and reclaim it in your own life and on your own land.
