Lake Willoughby – Westover Vermont

People have studied Earth’s energy matrix as long as their have been people. In this post we talk about geomancy, sacred geometry and alternate history while we journey through some of Vermont’s most breathtaking natural features.

Humankind has had a fascination with geometry, astronomy and geomancy since before recorded history. The pyramids at Giza are aligned to the cardinal directions and the Great Sphinx watches in perfect alignment as the Sun rise over the Nile on the equinoxes. Stonehenge has numerous alignments, both celestial and terrestrial. From Machu Picchu to Gobekli Tepe, ancient architects and builders purposely aligned their structures in a very precise way. We do not know how the ancients came to this knowledge or ability, but it is unarguably clear that they had both.

Does the Earth contain a natural energy matrix? Are there naturally occurring geographical markers which point out this matrix? Does Earth have a chakra system? Is the Crown chakra of North America located in Vermont?

Lake Willoughby – Westover Vermont

One of the travel related books on our bookshelf is Natalie Zaman’s “Magical Destinations of the Northeast”. We can not now recall exactly how the book came into our lives, but it is filled with some of the interesting places that can be found throughout New England.

Ms. Zaman’s book was my first introduction to Lake Willoughby. Lake Willoughby is a lake in the town of Westmore in Orleans County in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The lake is between Mount Pisgah and Mount Hor which make up “Willoughby Gap”. It is one of the most strikingly beautiful places I have seen so far.

The waters of Lake Willoughby are incredibly clear. You can boat or swim well out into the lake and still see the bottom long after you can reach it with your feet. The sand on the south beach is positively littered with chunks of quartz crystal. Perhaps it was because we visited on the summer solstice, but we couldn’t help noticing that the whole area seemed to coarse with an old energy that is simultaneously powerful, yet tranquil.

We heard Lake Willoughby referred to as “the Crown chakra of North America” by several of the locals. The source of this association seems to come from a curious little book by Peter William Champoux and William Stuart Buehler called “Gaia Matrix: Arkhom and the Geometries of Destiny in the North American Landscape”. This book discusses the geography and telluric currents of North America. The book also discusses the placement of significant cities, highways and natural features such as mountains and lakes. Much of the geometry laid out in this book centers around Lake Willoughby, which it calls “the Crown chakra of North America”

Most people are completely unaware that the Earth is coursing with energy currents. Modern science calls these energy currents telluric currents, and they are present to some extent all over the Earth’s surface. The United States Geologic Survey (USGS) maintains a map of these currents in their magnetic anomaly map, available online at

Lake Willoughby is an absolutely beautiful place. People say that it resembles a Norwegian Fjord. I have never been to Norway, but if it looks like Willoughby, it must be beautiful.

We only intended to visit Lake Willoughby once while we were in Vermont. It made such an impression that we went back to spend a second day on the southern beach there. Both trips touched us in ways that are difficult to express in words. If you are ever in the area, make the time to visit this amazing place. Take off your shoes, put your feet into the crystal clear waters and just feel. Stay as long as you can. You will be glad you did.

Be aware that there is a “clothing optional” beach on the south shore of the lake. It is not visible from the boat launch, but is not far west of the south beach parking area.

Sentinel Rock – Westmore Vermont

We stumbled upon Sentinel Rock while researching Lake Willoughby. Sentinel Rock is a large glacial boulder nearby to Lake Willoughby. Like Lake Willoughby, Sentinel Rock is a mysterious place to many. It is not difficult to understand why. The giant boulder looks completely out of place on an otherwise open hillside.

It was while researching Sentinel Rock I found an article on which mentioned the work of someone named Dr. R.M. de Jonge:

(Discovery of America and Biblical Flood, c.1900 BC)
Dr. R.M. de Jonge ,


Sentinel Rock is located in Westmore, northern Vermont. It is a big glacial boulder, which turns out to be a monument of the Megalithic Culture of New England. It tells the well-kown story of the discovery of America in the Fourth and Fifth Dynasties of Egypt (c.2500 BC). It bears a large petroglyph of a Comet, and it turns out to be situated close to an ancient crater having a diameter of 17 km. So, it also tells the story of the Biblical Flood, which occurred at the start of the Sixth Dynasty (c.2344 BC). It was caused by a Comet Catastrophe, at which more than half of the world population perished (2.6 mil-lion men). Nearby Lake Willoughby symbolizes this Comet. The monument dates from the Twelfth Dynasty (Middle Kingdom), c.1900 BC.

We looked for the petroglyph of a comet. We did see a large marking on the rock, but it did not immediately resemble a comet to us.

Dr. R. M. de Jonge is the head of the Institute for Megalithic Research, which is (or was) based in the Netherlands. They have a website at but it has not been updated in a long time. We did discover that Dr. de Jonge has much of his research available online at slideshare. Anyone interested “alternate” history will find much interesting material for thought at

Further Reading

In addition to the works already cited, more information about telluric currents and ley lines can be found in David R. Cowan and Anne C. Silk’s “Ley Lines of the U.K. and U.S.A.” This little work discusses energy lines in the UK and the United States as well as Nazis, Freemasons, Spirit Paths and many other topics. In addition to learning about Earth energies and gemomancy, you will also learn how to use divining rods.
