A scientific investigation of the healing and energetic effects of crop circles
• Shares the results of decades of research into crop circles, including detailed scientific explanations and responses from an 800-person questionnaire study
• Explores the connections between crop circle formations, cosmic energies, and consciousness
• Features stunning, full-color aerial photographs of crop circles from Lucy Pringle’s personal collection
In 1990 while studying the energetics of a crop circle, Lucy Pringle experienced a miraculous healing of a severe shoulder injury. Inspired, she expanded her research to investigate the physical, psychological, and energetic effects of these mysterious formations on people as well as on animals. In this book, alongside her stunning full-color aerial photographs of crop circles, Pringle shares the results of her research, including anecdotes from an 800-person questionnaire study, in combination with detailed scientific explanations by aerospace engineer and fellow crop circle researcher James Lyons.
The authors discuss case histories of healing, from temporary respite from arthritis, Reynaud’s, and Parkinson’s, to the permanent cure of muscle strains and chronic pain, to emotional healing and feelings of peace and happiness. They explore the relationship of crop circle formations and consciousness, highlighting “intention” as a key factor in crop circle manifestation. Pringle describes the wide range of physiological effects--both positive and negative--caused by the frequencies in crop circles and shows how the negative symptoms may possibly be caused by heavy use of pesticides.
Drawing on the science behind the formation of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, the authors explain how the same electromagnetic waves that produce these lights in the sky also interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and ley lines to produce geometric-energetic patterns in fields--crop circles--akin to the cymatic patterns of sand on a vibrating drum surface. They reveal dowsing as a way to identify underlying sacred geometry within a field and explain how healing arises as the result of communication with the self-organizing energy field of a crop circle.
With the first recorded appearance of a crop circle formation more than 4,000 years ago, crop circles are an ancient part of Earth’s and humanity’s intertwined history that we are only beginning to understand.
Paul Vigay was one of the first people to experience and record electrical anomalies in crop circles. He found that, on numerous occasions, his mobile would not work when inside the circle but would operate perfectly when outside. He would repeat this several times with exactly the same effect. In 1990 he developed his first gismo called Mark One, initially designed to pick up weak electrical currents such as those coming from light switches and cables.
One day, at his parent’s house, he decided to test his detector against several bunches of wheat his mother had collected near a recent crop circle. Paul was amazed at the different signals he got. One set gave a very strong reading whereas the other set didn’t. On asking his mother about them he realized that it was the samples taken from inside the crop circle that were giving the strong reading and the others gave no reaction whatsoever. Whatever the “energy” of crop circles is, it clearly can remain active for some after their formation.
Scientific Analysis from Jim Lyons
Why do crop circles have such a wide range of effects on so many different types of equipment? The energy of crop circles is spiraling electric charge, like a tornado, which reveals its electric origin as filamentary structures rising vertically. This is the basis of crop circle generation.
In addition, within crop circles, there are far narrower yet similar structures emerging from the earth’s grid line structures at nodal points. If a laptop were to be located on such a spot, it would encounter a rotational electric field, which generates magnetic patterns on computer processing electronics. These can often lead to totally scrambled signals, which clearly can, at a minimum, distort information but often can so disturb results as to be useless. It is almost impossible to anticipate such effects. These magnetic patterns often result in headaches of observers in these places.
The future for the crop circle phenomenon is likely to grow as the topic of an electrical universe is growing. It is not without significance that the crop circle phenomenon has made, and continues to make, an inspiring contribution to this world-changing perspective of the Cosmos. We are at last uniting ancient and modern science with life in general, and mankind in particular is being a highly significant component of this whole remarkable process.
Chapter 7. Animal Reactions
No matter how dismissive skeptics may be about the volume of human and electrical anomalies, animal reactions and behaviour are more difficult if not impossible to ignore, and so their behaviour is critical to this research.
We know from the effects on pilots’ instruments that there is a vertical field of “energy” that extends to an unknown height above a crop circle; therefore it comes as no surprise that birds are affected.
One of our survey respondents reports, “Whilst sitting enjoying the food and the view of the stones of Avebury, a wood pigeon flew across the field from an easterly direction. Just outside the formation it seemed to almost hit a wall, making it veer suddenly, around the formation, to the north (it didn't overfly it at all) and then it continued to fly to the west after its detour.” Exactly the same effect was recorded in Canada when a skein of geese veered sharply away from flying over a formation, only to regroup directly afterwards and continue on their way. Birds have magnetite in their brains and react to magnetic fields.
Scientific Analysis from Jim Lyons
So far, our consideration of ambient energy within crop circles has focused on humans. However, as we have already observed, we must at least consider their interaction with other living species.
It is the bird scenario that is perhaps even more fascinating. For around 150 years, it has been considered that birds navigate by detecting the Earth’s magnetic field, especially magnetic North. To date, despite enormous effort, no one has found any sign of such a feature that could possibly be used for navigation.
There have been many situations in which flocks of birds flying toward ancient sites or crop circles split into two groups, each flying around the column and joining up again once past it. They have no problem detecting the spiraling energy via their pineal systems. Additionally, a pineal gland can act like an accelerometer as well as a rate gyro, the two key building blocks of an inertial navigation system. Perhaps the most revealing aspect of this new hypothesis is that the subtle energy field around the pineal gland reduces sharply to zero when its axis is pointing at magnetic North. This is the perfect navigation system.
Thus we see that the toroidal waveforms rising from underground water to create crop circle energies, when breaking through the earth’s surface form a vacuum space to draw down the crop. This leaves a spiraling columnar vortex in which we find a whole spectrum of frequencies, mostly within the frequency band compatible with the detection systems of humans, animals, and birds. It is therefore of no surprise that reactions to these signals are perfectly normal. The frequencies involved can generate both good and bad responses, dependent on the health condition of the human or indeed animal.
Recognized as an authority on the effects of electromagnetic fields on living systems, Lucy Pringle is one of the world’s leading crop circle photographers and researchers and a founding member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies. She lectures internationally and lives in Hampshire, England.
“To fly with Lucy Pringle over a crop circle formation, or walk carefully among the miraculously woven wheat, is up there with standing next to Spielberg during filming; she is an expert. These formations in our fields are the most enigmatic mystery of our day, and yet millions, who have never visited one, write them off with spoon-fed explanations. I have followed the phenomenon since the late eighties, visiting well over a dozen firsthand, once as the first visitor. No one has ever convinced me they were all created by the human hand. Lucy’s exploration of the energy within the formations and its effect on our bodies is a particularly fascinating aspect of these beautiful messages in our fields. This is a book that will take you down many new and unexpected paths. A combination of compelling science and stories of extraordinary events recorded over a period of thirty years, this book lifts the crop circle phenomenon to previously unexplored levels of investigation, enhanced by Lucy’s wonderful photography. A must-read for all travelers of the known and unknown.”
– Sir Mark Rylance, actor, theater director, and playwright

“For decades, crop circles have attracted the attention of scholars, photographers, hoaxers, and pranksters, making it difficult to understand the subject. Separating the wheat from the chaff can be difficult in such a mixed climate! Lucy Pringle and James Lyons separate fact from fiction, bringing a refreshing scientific approach to the hidden energies and dynamics of crop circles. The nature of consciousness, the ancient art of dowsing, and Earth Energies are explored in detail. The authors’ research offers fascinating insights into the mesmerizing annual appearance of crop circles. The stunning photography drew me ever closer to the circles, and it felt like I was there. Enjoy this book, as it is a beacon of light that will illuminate your understanding of crop circles.”
– Maria Wheatley, author of Divining Ancient Sites and professional dowser
“For three decades, Lucy Pringle has been one of the most intrepid and persistent researchers of the mysterious crop circle phenomenon. In the face of often relentless skepticism or indifference from the mainstream, Lucy’s passionate determination to focus on actual data, meticulously gathered from personal studies and the crucial testimony of many people, has enabled her to compile this very valuable book. Whatever anyone’s opinions of where crop circles come from, the reality is that they have had a profound effect, both mentally and physically, on those who have visited them. The Energies of Crop Circles brilliantly records many of these experiences for future generations, who may one day, with advancing scientific discoveries, find a new context in which to place this intriguing evidence, which we dismiss at our peril.”
– Andy Thomas, mysteries researcher and author of the Truth Agenda website
“The combination of Lucy Pringle’s elegant photographs and James Lyons’s lucid explanations elevates The Energies of Crop Circles to a new understanding since the modern appearance of this ongoing fascinating and mysterious phenomenon. This is a book of value for everyone who seeks knowledge of our world.”
– Marcus Allen, UK publisher of Nexus Magazine
“Crop circles are fascinating, and this book allows us to explore the depth of our Universe and to receive new perceptions and knowledge, which is useful in this era of big changes.”
– Lilou Macé, author of The Yoni Egg and host of Lilou Macé TV,
“The mysterious and often elaborate crop circles that have adorned the fields in southern England over the past 30 years have inspired the authors to make an in-depth study of people’s experiences when visiting them. Lucy documents these fascinating accounts and, with the aid of scientist and dowser James Lyons, shows that the underlying science has a universal origin and intelligence. The selected circles are illustrated by Lucy’s superb aerial photographs; relevant aspects of the science are detailed in the appendices.”
– Andrew King, Ph.D., biologist
“Not only is this a fascinating and entertaining book, but it is truly mind-expanding. The materialist paradigm, which permeates the science of today, finds us lacking in the conceptual equipment required to cope with the crop circle phenomenon. The accounts of people’s experiences, reactions by animals, strange and meaningful synchronicities, and not least so many inexplicable facts on the ground, baffle the way of thinking that most of us have grown up with. It’s no wonder why crop circles aren’t featured in the mainstream media much--those writing about them don’t know what to say! James Lyons’s comments are of great value. As he points out, earlier civilizations, and even tribal people today, have a conceptual map which can include such phenomena. His interpretation of crop circle geometry in relation to music is of special value. This book should be widely read, especially by scientists.”
