I live on the Isle of Thanet in Margate, S.E. England and found it to be a small community where news travels fast. Word seeped out that I was working on a tome which included the Knights Templar. I was approached by a man claiming to be a modern-day descendant of the banished Order. This caused a raised eyebrow on my part and I approached the meeting with caution. The discussion bore fruit and I was not disappointed in the years that followed as the information that was given proved accurate.
I was shown a map with ‘energy lines’ crossing over the United Kingdom and the world. Now, this is not incredible as ley line hunting is pervasive today, but I was surprised as the lines intersected with specific Ordnance Survey grid reference points across England and Scotland which were related to historic and modern Templar locations.
I have never come across such an interesting energy map during my years of research. What are the odds of a correlation between ‘ley lines’ and a rigid navigation grid of specific historic sites, surely it must be impossible? I was told that there ‘…was no such thing as coincidence’.
My life had changed and I had become a ‘Sub-Rosa Contactee’ with a rare opportunity to disseminate esoteric Templarism via an actual physical descendant of the Templars. In order to protect his identity I chose the name John Temple throughout the book, however towards the end of the writing stage I was to find out his actual heritage which was straight out of a novel.
It became necessary to write a new Chapter One so that I could tell his family history which stems from the French crown and the famous bankers of Florence to the lost Celtic kings of Rheged in Cumbria.
I included the historical, sacred geometry and mystical information peppered throughout my own research.
My contact John Temple is of the Sangreal or blood royal of Jesus and Mary Magdalene the later of which has a strong presence in the book. I followed the story of the Magdalene through Medieval art, illustrated manuscripts up through to the Statue of Liberty and the constellation of Cassiopeia.
