A Dowser's award-winning search for the magnetism
that drew high profile personalities
to northern New Mexico
and discovered the force the Indian Ancestors had known
A Special award-winning book for people interested in Earth Energy,
Healing, Divining, Travel and History
or simply staying home as an Armchair Tourist.
Entitled “Holy Dirt, Sacred Earth: A Dowser’s Journey in New Mexico” the author
sets out by asking the question: What is the magnetism that has drawn so many
personalities to the Enchanted Land that special part of Northern New Mexico?
D.H. Lawrence, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Arnold Rönnebeck, Georgia O’Keefe,
Carl Gustav Jung, Dennis Hopper were among the cutting edge celebrities
who openly spoke of it.
Dowser and author Robert Egby with his partner Betty Lou started on a journey
that quickly revealed that the Anasazi, the ancient ancestors of the Native
Indians were acutely aware of both terrestrial and cosmic energies. The great
immigration from Chaco Canyon to the valley of the Rio Grande River showed
that wherever the Indians built their pueblos, they were always centered on
earth energies known to dowsers as geospirals.
European Christians came and built a cathedral and churches on the old Indian
sites that contained geospirals. These earth energies also attracted and
still attract people with creative and positive energies hence the enormous
number of artists, writers, photographers, healers and movie stars that have
flocked to the semi-desert region.
In this book Robert explores Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Bandelier, Taos, Arroyo Seco,
the Earthship Community, the 1,000 year-old Taos Pueblo who are keepers of the
famous and sacred Blue Lake, and the Sanctuary of Chimayó, the so-called
Lourdes of America from where the words “Holy Dirt” in the book title
On his way in an almost hidden mountain cave at 9,000 feet he finds
an old Indian shaman in Spirit named Running Bear who still wields extraordinary
powers of displaying historic events. It was the same cave visited by D.H. Lawrence
and featured in one of his short stories.
New Mexico appears to have a concentration
of these geospirals discovered by the Indians, the pioneers and frontrunners.
In the introduction Robert writes:
This book is the record of an adventure,
an exploration, a search for earth energy. They say the gold-hungry Spaniards
relentlessly searched for the fabled “Golden Cities of Cibola” and went away
empty-handed, but the true gold of cosmic healing was there all along but they
failed to feel it. This book may assist the would-be dowser to get started
and learn to dowse his own landscape. In addition it will hopefully help
the reader to understand the gentle art of dowsing. It may also intrigue
veteran dowsers to explore new vistas and it will certainly allow the armchair
traveler to read something about northern New Mexico in a new light –- the
light of earth energy.
The book is illustrated with 23 photographs taken
by the author.
There are other geospirals in the world and if you are inclined to the old Art
of Dowsing you will find them says the author. The book also includes a basic
lesson in using dowsing tools, pendulums and L-rods. Follow the ancient
leylines, kivas and holy places and when you find one meditate on it for a
few minutes and you will feel the energy revitalizing your body, mind and spirit.
The book cover image shows Kokopelli, an Ancient Spirit Flute Player that can be
found on many of the Indian petroglyphs in New Mexico.
