Piedras Sagradas (Historia Incognita / Unknown History) (Spanish Edition)

?Piedras sagradas escrito por Juan Ignacio Cuesta y publicado por Ediciones Nowtilus es uno de los mejores recopilatorios sobre templos, pirámides, monasterios, catedrales, cuevas, en defintiva, recintos insólitos que han constituido y todavía hoy constituyen l. a. morada de seres superiores y que se erigieron fruto del poder de l. a. magia o de los angeles presencia de lo sagrado. Lugares donde el hombre supuestamente ha entrado en contacto con sus divinidades y en los que se concentran una serie de energías que transforman al individuo.?
(Web Comentarios de libros)

?Este libro es fundamentalmente un libro de Historia, ya que los angeles parte más extensa hace referencia a todo tipo de ritos, creencias y culturas que se han ido sucediendo desde los orígenes de los angeles humanidad hasta nuestros días. En ese sentido, el lector se lleva una sorpresa porque el título de los angeles obra parece referirse únicamente a determinados enclaves.?
(Web Anika entre libros)

A lo largo de toda l. a. humanidad, los lugares de culto y veneración de los dioses y fuerzas sobrenaturales, se han construido de piedra y en lugares especialmente sensibles
que conectan los más duro y lo más etéreo de l. a. realidad.

los angeles explicación a esta tendencia del ser humano a construir sus edificaciones sagradas sobre otras no depende sólo de un impulso a mostrar los angeles hegemonía de los angeles religión vencedora sobre los angeles vencida, también habría que considerar que esas edificaciones se encuentran sobre lugares que tienen algo especial, una energía sutil que el hombre percibe casi inconscientemente y que le hace determinar que se encuentra sobre un emplazamiento bizarre. Piedras sagradas recorre estos monumentos dedicados a las distintas divinidades y muestra relación de algunos de ellos con las fuerzas telúricas, con energía tectónica amplificada, que convirtió los lugares en donde se levantan estos monumentos en lugares especiales.

Pero no acabará ahí el análisis de Juan Ignacio Cuesta ya que mostrará también el efecto contrario, cómo los angeles piedra que compones algunos de estos lugares, ha sido cargada con l. a. energía de los acontecimientos que allí ocurrieron. Así, en Stonhenge, en el Taj-Majal, en Machu Picchu, en Petra o en los angeles Alhambra, por citar sólo algunos de los monumentos que trata, l. a. piedra nos trasmitiría los angeles historia de las sensaciones de los hechos más importantes que allí acontecieron. Clasifica el autor estos monumentos en función de sus características físicas, espirituales, y su relación con las redes energéticas de las que antes hablamos. El caso de España será specific ya que al estar entre dos continentes conserva mucha energía telúrica porque acumula mucha fuerza perteneciente al último plegamiento alpino, también el hecho de que sea un país surcado por innumerables ríos subterráneos carga a España de los angeles existencia de lugares mágicos como el Camino de Santiago, el Monasterio de El Escorial, el Monasterio de Suso o Montserrat.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

- El libro constituye un compendio inédito hasta ahora de los lugares de poder más relevantes para l. a. humanidad.

- Aúna fuerza narrativa y discurso histórico para que el lector se divierta leyendo y viajando a estos enclaves fundamentales para los angeles humanidad.

- l. a. experimentación es un punto importante de los angeles obra ya que el autor pretende trasladarnos a los angeles actualidad las sensaciones de los humanos que contemplaron estos edificios cargados de paz o de horror.

- l. a. documentación gráfica hace que el libro pueda ser leído como un libro de investigación científica o como una guía de viajes.

Un recorrido por esos lugares en los que el hombre ha querido levantar, piedra a piedra, sus creencias para los angeles posteridad. Una obra en l. a. que arte, ciencia y fe se combinan para hacernos partícipe de los angeles complejidad del ser humano y de los angeles necesidad de grabar sus principles y creencias y hacerlas eternas.
