    I used to live not far from Callanish...i cant say i felt uncomfortable there as i felt nothing but ive seen strange things there. Felt nothing more than awe of being in an old place at Stonehenge.Avebury feels like friends. A circle at Mynachclog ddu in Wsles feels warm and wellcoming ss does Pentre Ifsn and Castlerigg.
    Ive an - embarrasing to some - habit of hugging stsnding stones and ususlly get really good feelings from them though ive a few experiences of feeling the life drsin from me and feeling pretty unwell untill ive let go -similar to some plsces ive been in -so im sure theres more to them and their purpose than we know.

    Yup, I've seen dedicated, life-long stone-huggers get really ill after some experiences. I'm a tree-hugger myself, and no bad ones yet ... touch wood

    I went with friends to Castlerigg for the Summer Solstice one year. I can remember sitting and leaning against one of the stones, and it felt as though I was cuddling up to a large pillow. Absolutely amazing. I love the place.

    Having lived in and around Swindon all my life the stones at Avebury are old hat to me , from school trips aged 7 through courting and solstices , nowadays I enjoy parking up at the sanctuary most weekends , being on the ridgeway close to the tumuli is blissful

    I passed the Nine Ladies and decided I may as well stop as it was free.

    Was unprepared for the feelings. Was drawn to the centre of the circle and felt like I should walk around them and touch each one both clock-and anti-clockwise. Then I felt the urge to sit directly in the middle of the stones. This was a couple of years before I embraced hippy-dom and would not sit on 'dirty' grass. Such a strange feeling of, I think, belonging? I was so happy there, it was strange.

    Speaking if castles, I love them and visit them often. Occasionally I encountered a castle that 'sprang to life'. I could feel the soldiers, the cooks, the fire, the history seeping from the stones. I can feel energy on the stairways in particular [I assume because there is more foot traffic on the stairs].

    Sometimes, I can feel the energy on the path approaching the castle, the fear of the attacking army or the excitement of an incoming party. Freaks me the fuck out, but still I go, and still I touch the walls.
