The rise of the ‘Ancient Waterkeepers’


“The rise of the ‘Ancient Waterkeepers‘ and their re-emergence in Wales at this time in the history of the World, may not be a fable.

There’s a flow in the air, trickling everywhere, as an ocean of supporters are busy clearing plastics from the ocean and its beaches. This flow of support is moving upsteam to include rivers, lakes and streams. There’s a growing understanding that we should not be using single-use plastics and that anyway, we are using far too much plastic packaging in general.

The World’s one Water Cycle is crystal clear but we all need to become good waterkeepers so that aquifers, wells, waterfalls, ponds, marshland, swamps, icebergs, peat bogs, ditches, canals and probably puddles too, remain as clean as we can make them.

Water is a home for waterlife, not a place for us to dump on.

We need water, clean water, to take us forward into a healthy future. We’re only human but we must all do what we can to keep today fit for our tomorrows.

Maybe the recent sightings of “Ancient Waterkeepers” in **Llandrindod Wells, Wales, will encourage everyone locally to keep the physical water environment clean but we need good waterkeepers everywhere to preserve the physical and spiritual well-being of the planet


“Water is precious, every drop.
Polluting it has got to STOP.”


Tues, 7 Feb 2006, 12:43 – John C. Jones


The reservoir from which all thoughts emanate is perfectly in tune with the necessities of the universe and all that dwell in it.

Consequently, whenever necessary, that UNIVERSAL INBUILT SPIRIT will most definitely continue to rise up to correct any imbalance, as it has done successfully so many times in the past, since before the concept of infinity even existed.

Heed not the prophecies of doom for they are based entirely on the visible world and totally overlook the power of thought and the reservoir from which it flows.

As you so rightly point out, we must only enjoy “the hand that we have been dealt”. Be wise and accept it with a smile. The “cosmic joke” has been told in a universal language, for us all to share.

Best Wishes.

There are many places like ‘Llandrindod Wells’ with the word “Wells” after them.

Wells were once viewed as the “eye” of creation hence they originated water flows.

Many wells became “eye-wells” – their waters thought to be of great value to those with sore eyes. Even as recently as 1983, some of the well water from Llandrindod Wells was sent to Margaret Thatcher, the then British prime minister, to help with a speedy cure of her eye troubles.
